What phones do you guys use?
When will S10e drop in price?
Apparently Mi Mix 3 works well with T-Mobile.How true is this?Can anyone with Mi Mix 3 on T-Mobile vouch for it?Apparently most/almost all bands work/are supported.What doesn't work?
>>70972722When the s11 comes out.
>>70972773And when it does, the drop won't be that significant.
>>70972721Currently Moto Z2 Force
>>70972722$550 at Best Buy, friend.
>>70972828I'm a Euro heh
>>70972845Dang. Well, $550 was a good price for me since I was upgrading from an LG G6.
>>70972722>>70972828>tfw leafJ U S TUST
So, assuming you have access to that $550 S10e deal, is it worth going for?
I see all these OnePlus 7 Pro clones and copies coming out in the coming weeks but none of them have the 90hz display, what the fuck is even the point?Like if I could get the OP7P for cheaper, sure that's cool but if the display is just fucking worse what's even the point?
>>70972914The 90hz screen is really only good if you play Fortnite.
Thinking about escaping from Apple. If I get an S10e, do I keep the original OS? Have no idea what the fuck I'm doingalso the only other thing that makes me hesitate is the sheer fuckload of porting over various media including rebuying apps
>>70972935You can feel the smoothness as well, brah. Literally feels smoother than a baby's ass, senpai
>>70969960>Why is the k20 going to be that special? Xiaomi has really shitty software and will cut corners fucking everywhereWhat do you mean by cutting corners? They're not the ones excluding a micro SD card slot, headphone jacks, 4000 mAh batteries and even IR blasters. Even their mid range devices have been progressing in every regard throughout the years. On the other hand most flagships are excluding that. Not to worry about software - they're as developer friendly as OnePlus.>>70970351>Will it have a 90hz screen too though?>That's a big selling point to meWhy? Do you want just average battery life at best? We don't yet know, but we will in 2 days.
For 200$ what phone should i pick anons ?
>>70972994OneUI is actually decent, but you can do stuff like install Nova Launcher or even Microsoft's Launcher if you want to change how the home menu and some of the UI works.
>>70972857>tfw kangaroolandeh could be worse
>>70972935People say all this shit about 60hz monitors too.Higher frame rates is just better for an overall experience, the fuck is your guy's problems?
>>70972935Do you use anything more than 60hz as a computer monitor? The fluidity changes everything, not just gayming.
>>70972997>You can feel the smoothness as well, brah. Literally feels smoother than a baby's ass, senpaiWhat the fuck kind of an explanation is that? And it's not like anyone could see that without having the phone in hand, although that's not happening outside of the US. You're also getting just about average battery life with the latest Snapdragon SoC and a 4000 mAh battery.
I'll be honest, if the Razer Phone 2 had a headphone jack I would've bought one because that 120hz display is sex and the damn thing is pretty cheap these days.
>>70972722When either the Note 10 or S11 comes out
>>70973029High refresh rate makes a world of difference in everything.
I travel from burgerland to Portugal quite often. I want to buy a Mi9 what is the cheapest place to buy? I csn buy online in Europe and have it shipped to Portugal. Or buy online in Burgerland
>>70973073>saying nothing again but with different wording
>tfw got chinked hardshouldn't have trusted a chinkphone bros
>>70973079You'd see it if you used one yourself. It's not something that can be really explained over words. I went from a 60hz display to a high refresh rate one, even moving the mouse cursor around and scrolling through pages feels infinitely smoother.
>>70973023Since when do Android UI animations run at more than 60 fps? This is kind of a drastic change and as far as I'm aware it hasn't been announced yet or at all. Not sure what you'll be achieving with a 90 Hz refresh rate display when the UI animations are not programmed to go over 60 fps.
>be me>Own S10+, Aryan version>Just bought an iPad airIs there a better combination?
>>70973144>Is there a better combination?Yeah, not wasting money. Pretty sweet combination if you ask me.
>>70973151Sorry but I'm not a poorfag so I'm not going to entertain your post.
>>70973193You already did.
>>70973207That was actually my iPad typing that out. It's really advanced, unlock your chinkshit Now check these(This message sent from Cody's iPad)
>>70973221>>70973207Sorry, forgot my dubs
>>70973111>Not sure what you'll be achieving with a 90 Hz refresh rate display when the UI animations are not programmed to go over 60 fps.Smoother everything, bro. It'll feel and when the content allows it, look far smoother as well
when do you think nokia 6.2 or equivalent will release?

>>70972994Get a phone with android one
>>70973303Welcome to chink world, bro
Looking for a new smartphoneBudget is ~$250With T-Mobile, but I'm assuming that doesn't matter if the phone is unlockedPriority is Good camera (at least 10MP, I don't know if that's considered good now a days)headphone jacknot so high priority, but would be niceexpandable storage ability to rice it out ( I never ended up doing this with my OPO, but having the option was nice) If it's relevant, I currently am using a OP One, got it way back before launch when there was that whole code invite scheme thing. Solid phone, but after trying everything software related and a new sim card, I keep loosing or not getting signal. It's gotta be a a hardware issue, and the cost to repair would be about half of what my budget for a new phone is, so might as well get a new phone.I probably just missed a phone call for a new job interview and thus lost the job, so a new phone is now highest on my financial priorities lol
>>70973264Smooth 90hz for 3 years max because the amoled display degrades. How much is the replacement? Is it worth to pay premium for this kind of experience? Sounds like a scam to me.
>>70973319Get a OnePlus 3T.
>>70973336>How much is the replacement?20-35USD
>>70973351You mean you've never had the joy of a high refresh rate anything? My bad, bruh, looks like my expectations were too high for ya
High refresh rate has to be seen to be believed.
>>70973345Where did you get that? How easy is it to swap? Is the part as good as original?
Bought my mom this for mother's day. She seems to like this mobile botnet.
is there a good phone on the horizon that might be a good replacement for my OP3T? All I want is an unlocked bootloader for $300-450
>>70973076Buy in person at a Xiaomi reseller store in Lisbon.
>>70973432>Admiral Overseas CorporationWhat did UMIDIGI mean by this?
>>70973492What does that mean? Is that some running application? Probably spyware. That's why you only buy OnePlus if you must use a chinkphone.
Is there a chance the Redmi K20 Pro or whatever the fuck it's called will get complete global bands? In the US and there are barely any good budget options out here, the only good one here is arguably the Pixel 3a or maybe the Moto Z4 if its specs turn out to be true. My only other option is an S10e which is $550 at Best Buy unlocked
>>70973095What happened? I swear I see this post in every single /spg/ thread but never a follow up or an explanation. Is this a shill?
>>70972722It already dropped like 200€ here
>>70973548He but speaks for all of us. Look at this anon >>70973492 he got tapped by the PRC.
>>70973528>>70973593Did either of you actually look at the image?

Reminder that Trump is banning Huawei from the UShttps://twitter.com/FinancialTimes/status/1128774585699184641?s=19
>>70973866And this is a bad thing because...?
>>70972649Pixel 3a looks nice desu. Its funny that manufacturers still add a headphone jack to their "budget" line. Probably because only retards willingly buy into the USB c for all meme and only retards buy the flagship phones.
>>70973871Because this general and board is full of chinese shills
>>70973830I ain't buying a notch or pill and no amount of marketing will change my mind
>>70973866[spoiler]I have a Huawei phone, and I don't want to buy another one[/spoiler]
>>70973753I'm a white American.>inb4 mutt maymayYes, really.
My sister needs a new phone and I think she wants the Pixel 3a because she values long update life, good battery and so on.Is there any non-shit brand I can get her instead?I see the S9 is the same price and has a much better processor but she is hesitant to buy an old phone as she's always ever gotten old phones.Is there anything good in the Pixel 3a pricerange that has:-NFC-Fingerprint sensor-Good standby battery life-Snappy (responsive either by being powerful or software optimization)-Doesn't require custom roms to be good?
>>70973883>virtually every piece of electronics is manufactured in China>said devices are talked about on a technology board>hur duuur shillsAnd no, no one here recommends Huawei because they're locked down.
>>70973907The Samsung A70 has a massive AMOLED screen and 4500mha battery with a better processor and more RAM. If it’s too big then the A50 or A40 are good choices.
>>70973865Dude, so let me tell you why you should get a Moto z3.>You like easy repairable screens with full manufacturer support for right to repair?Boom, easy.>Tired of not having a battery lasting all day?Slap on a Moto mod.

>>70973933>z3Isn't that the one where they dropped the 3.5mm?
>>70973900It's a handicap to be white in a white country.
>>70973947Sadly yeah, but it comes with a dongle.And you can use the Moto mod to charge it. So you can listen to music and charge at the same time.

>>70973993Shooo, I'm shilling the z3.
>>70973958Doesn't change the fact I'm not Chinese.
The Redmi K20s antutu score. This thing is gonna fuck the oneplus 7 so hard.
>>70974061Where is the oneplus 7 pro score?
>>70974000Aww :3 nice digits too
>>70974061Doesn't matter, I don't use MIUI chinky OS. Oxygen or bust when it comes to chinee phones.
Found an LG X power on the bus last night frens,Not going to return it, gonna flash it and turn it into a dedicated media device, since it has outstanding battery usage/life.
>>70974074364025. The mi 9 got 372006, fuck knows what chink magic Xiaomi is using to get that score.
>>70974119Is it really even a benchmark to go off of?Most people were saying the OnePlus is fast as fuck as is.
>>70974061Link to story: https://www.gizmochina.com/2019/05/16/redmis-killer-flagship-k20-will-feature-snapdragon-855-with-an-outrageous-antutu-score/
maybe that belongs into sqt but I have a question, I currently have lenovo p2 with android 7.0, if I upgrade to android 9.0 will I be able to get bluetooth aptx and ldac support or is that hardware dependent and I need to get a new phone for those bluetooth codecs?
>>70974129The oneplus 7 is fast as fuck, but if the K20 is just as if not faster for half the price of the pro? It would make it a great buy. It’s also confirmed to be getting an Indian release so global version will be available.
>>70974061Does a score like that really matter to you? I have a smartphone with a SD 650 and I honestly can't complain about its speed.
>>70974146It’s hardware so yes you will. But 5 devices are backwards compatible so they will work just not with the benefits. Signal quality is better though going from a 4.2 device to 5 earphones.
>>70974166The K20 is competing with the non Pro though. Unless it has the same fancy features of the Pro, it's not competing with it at any level outside of the usual SoC/RAM specs.
>>70974174It's memeshit to jerk off to. Absolutely lol at phone benchmarks. It's just marketing shit.
>>70974184well I'm asking because I bought sony 1000xm3 and the app says I'm connecting through sbc so I think I'm wasting part of the potential, do you think it's worth upgrading a phone for newer bluetooth version just for that?
>>70974174Only in the sense of a comparison. If a £300-400 phone can compete with a £1000 phone in benchmarks then it’s certainly a factor to take in. It’s not the be all and end all but really makes you think.
>>70974146You can get Aptx, install a Oreo or Pie ROM and this magisk module and you can have Aptx:https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/port-aptx-aptxhd-oreo-8-0-update-jan-t3731151
>>70974206Of course the scores will be very similar. They have the same processor, same RAM, same GPU. It literally doesn't mean SHIT. The cheaper phone will still lack the extra stuff that makes the more expensive phone worth its price so it's not a competition at all. It's only relevant for pajeets why buy the cheapest phones with the latest SoCs.
>>70974202Yes. I hated Bluetooth because of connectivity problems mostly more than quality but 5 improves both those things. I’d only update your just for it if your having major issues with cut off or you want more range. Sound quality isn’t going to get a massive boost really I feel.
>>70973883>full of chinese shillsNo, it's a mix of chinese and indian shills.
>>70974244The connection is stable for me I haven't noticed any problems or skipping or anything unless I move really far away from the source signal but that's to be expected, however I did notice there's significantly more delay on my phone compared to a laptop but I mostly listen to music on my phone anyway so it doesn't really matter, thanks for answering
>>70973907OnePlus 7 Pro>NFCMeme feature, you don't need that.>Good standby battery lifeDecent enough, if not enough, get a powerbank>Doesn't require custom roms to be goodOnePlus has great dev support. Why even get an android if you don't want custom roms?
>>70974286Fuck custom ROMs, I'm sticking to stock.
>>70974225>Of course the scores will be very similar. They have the same processor, same RAM, same GPU. It literally doesn't mean SHIT. The cheaper phone will still lack the extra stuff that makes the more expensive phone worth its price so it's not a competition at all. It's only relevant for pajeets why buy the cheapest phones with the latest SoCs.Not sure what you're taking about here, but I would like to touch on:>The cheaper phone will still lack the extra stuff that makes the more expensive phone worth its price so it's not a competition at allYour more expensive OnePlus lacks a micro SD card slot, 3.5mm headphone jack, IP rating, wireless charging, good battery life even with the latest SoC and 4000 mAh battery because of the 90 Hz refresh rate display, IR blaster etc.So, what exactly is it worth without all that?
>>70974286doesnt look futureproof to me. No NFC kills it.I think most will regret buying it. Camera is not greatest. No jack becomes a big deal when regret hits from bluetooth problems. Battery life is bad if not on stand by.Dipped to the wrong end of pool with those diminishing meme returns.
>>70974286>700 eur for the phonegenerations these days
>>70974357>No NFC kills it.Really? Of all things it lacks the NFC kills it?
>>70974357>>70974286OnePlus 7 Pro has NFC though, where did y'all get the idea it doesn't??
>>70974449I believed Anon. I still havent checked if it has. Maybe I should.
>>70972773When the S15 comes out, you mean
Any good chink phones with a removable battery?
>>70974286>Great supportThey haven't even fixed the 5ghz issue on op 6
any recommendations for a mid range 200 -300 phone with 5000mah battery ?
>>70974286>no 3,5mm jack
>tfw s8 screen got scratchedWhat the fuck do I do now? First time ever scratching a phone
I want a phone with a good camera that manages to take good pictures. The google pixel 3a seems to be the obvious choice but I also want to avoid the google botnet as much as possible. Does the quality of the camera on pixels degrade if you remove all gapps? Is the image quality produced tied to their camera app or can I use any other too?
>>70974518Change the screen protector if it bugs you enough...o-oh you didn't? But anon it's like $5. You'll have to learn with your next phone or screen
>>70974286>>70974384Just because you don't use NFC doesn't mean someone else won't either.I use NFC daily at work (we use NFC stickers for logistics) and also to check the balance on my transit pass.
>>70974512You don't need that feature. You can use a dongle or bluetooth, plenty of modern alternatives.
>>70974286>Meme feature, you don't need that.Dropped.Use it for payments all the time.
>>70974357You act like people can't use dongles to connect their wired headphones to it.
>>70974528>>70974534This phone isn't for first world niggers like you who can't even be bothered to use your debit cards instead of memeshit.
>>70974533>>70974560Bluetooth is not an upgrade it is a complementing feature and vice versa.
NEVER SETTLEO N E P L U SNEPLUS
>>70973866Only the telco and I guess networking gear, which is fine because even on the off-chance that it's not PLA botnet, their firmware is a security clusterfuck mainly bodged together from stolen Cisco and Nokia shit. But If the ban affects shitty mobiles too, who really cares?
>>70972935overall ui use, everything feels better on 90hzalso what most people here seem to forget or don't know, op7p has 135hz touch input processing, so that's even better then the iphone xs's 120hz
>>70974602But it lacks wireless charging, a jack and expandable storage lololololol
>>70974602>135hz touchWho will notice? Who will care?This feature is one of the last on my list of things to note. Marginal importance overall. A distraction from things that matter. Hype and marketing feature.
>>70974689Go buy a Samshit bro. No one's asking you to buy the phone of the year.
>>70974166I might be available, redmi note 7 pro got an Indian version but it never went global.
>>70974689>Hype and marketing feature.that's a blatant lie and you know it, and it's one of the major reasons why the iphones up until now felt way more responsive then android phonesi'm not buying the op7p, but i just want a 90hz screen of that quality in more phones, because it's a huge quality of life upgrade>>70974652yup, sad about the jack and microsd but i still personally think wireless charging is a meme for burgers and personally never use it on my s9
>>70974716>i just want a 90hz screeno god, the hz meme
Best phone in the galaxy bro.
>>70974731have you ever used a 144hz monitor? or better yet, if you have a store that sells apple products close to you, go try the ipad pro, then try the regular ipad next to it, and how shitty it feels to use after using the pro model, you can't tell me it doesn't make a huge difference in useability
I was on the verge of committing sui and then I met a Chinese fella who told me about the OnePlus 7 Pro and how it's all life changing and he was right, I don't wanna sui no moreHe said he'd come back to harvest a kidney since he saved my life so I said okay, do it when I'm asleepGonna drink a glass of spiked water now and when I wake up I'll be short one kidney but at least I'll have my OnePlus 7 Pro!
>>70974750Will android tablets ever catch up to the ipad pro's? There difference between them is night and day.
>>70974750This is why the 7 Pro looks good to me, I finally get a high refresh screen and all the issues with battery life are really exaggerated considering the screen. In 90hz mode it's only about 20 minutes worse than an S10+
>>70974772doubt it, because most of the companies producing them on the android side don't seem to invest much into development anymore, which is fine imo, i'm not really sure about tablet purchase habits in the west but i'm a slav and here most people buy a tablet for their kids (ipad 6 for example) to play games on, or older people being gifted some tablet to read news on from their children
>>70974799It lacks wireless charging and a jack! Don't get it! It's overpriced, it's not $300!
>>70974750yeah, i have one and it's great for playing fortnite, but other than that makes absolutely no difference to my other 2 which are 60hz. Playing competitively on phone is joke.
>>70974286>>NFC>Meme feature, you don't need that.I literally stopped using a wallet cause I pay with my phone everywhere. Paying with phone was one of the best things introduced in recent years
>>70974533Smartphone's primary function for me is music. I use the same headphones on my PC and phone.If I need to quickly go somewhere I just unplug the headphones, grab my phone and go. If I need to search for a fucking dongle every time as well then I'm sure to miss my bus/train/plane.Also, what if I lose the dongle while traveling and there are no electronic stores nearby?Dongles are a shit alternative to 3,5 mm jack.Bluetooth is shit generally.
>>70974286you shills need to do your homework
>>70974806See you'd be right if the competition of Chink phones coming out had a good display.Also something tells me the 7 Pro will be the best optimized out of the bunch, just slapping hardware in and hoping it works together in phones doesn't usually work out for great performance on every front.
>>70974869>See you'd be right if the competition of Chink phones coming out had a good display.Well, the now $350 Mi 8 has an HDR10, DCI-P3 AMOLED display and also lacks a micro SD card slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack. So...
>>70974893Ya but you're missing the 90hz part.I want a better display, and that's an actual upgrade I give a shit about.
>>70974905you are part of a very small minority. Dont over represent.
Posting this from my comfy LG G7 ThinQ that I got for $ 328 USD. The only drawback is it's running Oreo instead of Pie. Other than that everything is top notch.
>>70974932>whining about using stock romplebs
>>70974912Trust me Anon, I'm aware of the issues with the 7 Pro but for what I do, 90hz is maximum comfy and I don't see a lot of people adopting it except in fringe cases like this one.
>>70974996>90hz memejump off the cliff
>>70974822This. I don't have a problem when I'm out and about, I use BT buds for that, but I use headphones at home. Want to go for a smoke? Do the dishes? Fold laundry? Take the plug off the PC, put in to the phone, open Spotify and continue to listen to the same song you just paused.
Redbull me on in-screen fingerprint scanners. Is it true they're not as safe as dedicated ones, they're easier to hack?
>>70974996>Trust me Anon, I'm aware of the issues with the 7 Pro but for what I do, 90hz is maximum comfy and I don't see a lot of people adopting it except in fringe cases like this one.So you do admit it's a fringe case? Alright, fair enough, but for everyone else outside of the US - they just can't see it in person to know what kind of a difference it makes. Nor can most people see it on video really, at least not in 90 Hz.
>>70974286>Meme feature, you don't need that.she literally does, I want her to have access to money in an emergency.Why do people just claim features don't matter?
>>70975023they're just slower and less accurate.I honestly don't understand why they're a thing, the back of phones are completely bare and the side-edge scanner the 10e uses is a great solution too.
P30 or OnePlus 7?Coming from an Xperia X so features that tick the list would be:Dual SpeakersHeadphone JackEasy 1 hand useScreen quality similar or better than IPS
>>70974822>Also, what if I lose the dongle while traveling and there are no electronic stores nearby?stop making up fantastical scenarios, if you're not sub 80iq and keep your dongle attached to your headphones you won't lose it. It's just COPING. Man up.
>>70975121Back of the phone is the worst possible position. Absolutely retarded.So that leaves the sides or the front and the sides are usually too thin for a scanner.
>>70974996There are zero issues with the Pro. Wireless charging is gay, jack doesn't matter and expandable storage doesn't matter. Only incels think like that.
>>70975105>I want her to have access to money in an emergency.you people don't keep cash at home or in your banks anymore? Jesus. Fucking zoomers.
>>70975023That is true, they have been "hacked" by making a 3D printout of the finger and in theory optical ones could be fooled by a photo of it, but I haven't heard of any cases of that. Arguably in such scenarios you'll probably have bigger worries than that. The true redpill is that they bring more problems than advantages: they're slower than classic scanners and lack a tactile component so you need to rely on muscle memory to hit the scanning area. Their only two advantages are cool sci-fi looks and being the only way to mount a front sensor on a bezelles device.
>>70975133Is this bait? Fucking shiteater. I can't fucking believe it. Shittiest baitshit post I've read all year. Unbelievable. At least put in a decent attempt.
>>70975173>lack a tactile component so you need to rely on muscle memory to hit the scanning area.>it's one big spot on the bottom of a 6.7" display. Only an inbred retard would have to rely on muscle memory to work it through. What a shitty excuse. The rest is valid.
Why should I root my phone?

>>70975182>Only an inbred retard would have to rely on muscle memoryAs opposed to what, looking at the indicator every time? Do you even know what muscle memory is? Look at any screen disassembly video, the actual area is rather small and takes some time getting used to to nail it without looking.
>>70975237I'm not a 7 Pro shill. The "phone" is way too big to be practical, so I'll never buy it.I'm just saying the fingerprint is fast enough.
>>70975220I'd buy OP 7 in a heartbeat if it came with a headphone jack. That's all I'm missing. Don't care about wireless charging, don't care about SD card, I'd buy a big storage version. Fuck this "no headphone jack" design bullshit and fuck apple for it as well.
>>70975288But it does come with a headphone jack. Maybe your headphones are too old?

Ok, faggots, tell me why s10+ is not the best buy right now. Every shitty phone there is good at something but this bad boy is excellent at everything. Plus it doesn't include mandatory personal information storage in china.Can't even see how they could improve note 10 at this point. Marginally better camera, a little bigger battery and a pen?
>>70975344With more and more companies pushing their own wireless ear buds now, we're going to see more and more phones losing the headphone jacks.
>>70975470I really liked the s10+, but the camera placement triggered my autism too much so I went with a note 9.
>>70975471Oh wow, really???? Everybody knows this, retard. You know how? Most phones already lost 3.5 jack. Still it doesn't mean that it is good. No bluetooth headphones can compare to a good pair of $100 wired headphones.
>>70975486Get with the times, grandpa. No one but you wants to walk around with your HD650's on.
>>70975486Is this you? lol
>>70975519I was talking portable in-ear headphones. Bluetooth shits have awful sound and are still laggy
>>70975532>Bluetooth shits have awful soundYou first need to convince the masses of this. Their the ones pushing for more bluetooth options.
>>70975530are you fighting for less features? How much social credit points are you getting for this, Wang?
I'm still dissapointed that OP couldn't be assed to even fix their 5ghz hotspot issue on the 6-series. It reeks of "fuck you plebs, 7 is our priority now, deal with it"
>>70972722already down around 200€
>>70975532>Bluetooth shits have awful soundThere's nothing inherent in Bluetooth tech that would make them have bad sound. New BT codecs are pretty much as good as lossless.And if you don't like charging batteries (understandable) get USB-C headphones. Problem solved.
>>70975337You actually typed that out? Cocksucking nigger, get a job.
>>70975725No bro I CAN'T BUY IT IF IT'S MISSING THE JACK!
>>70975725There is a shitload of great headphones in the market. There are no good usb-c headphones. There is no bluetooth headphones without connection\lag issues. And there are no bluetooth headphones with sound better than $100 audiotechnica in ear headphones.Plus, you can't connect your phone to your home stereo. Stop fighting for less features and go suck tim's cock, faggot.
>>70975768>There are no good usb-c headphones.Source?
>>70975809show me one, faggotBtw, if you buy one, you can't then use it with your pc/audio system
>>70975748ty for the bumb, bot.
>>70975832>if you buy one, you can't then use it with your pc/audio systemthis is also one of the reasons why i want a headphone jack. It's multipurpose. Stick a 3.5mm plug in anything it's designed and it works. phones, computers, stereos, cars, your neighbors stereos, fuck, the plane your travelling. with a USB-C headphones, not so much. >get a dongleHow about not trying to invent the wheel again.

>>70975768Dude just use a dongle, you can use your regular headphones then. The USB-C ports have DACs in em so sound isn't compromised, just man up bro.
>>70976042LG v20/30 or something. Definitely an LG though. They have the best sound.

>>70975470>hole shit>ever worth itJust no. Also, it's ridiculously expensive and about this part:>Plus it doesn't include mandatory personal information storage in china.There really are no usable custom ROMs for the S9/Note 9 after all this time, so, you're stuck with whatever data your Samsung Experience or whatever the fuck they're calling it now may be transmitting. We know that it has "accidentally" sent photos from your gallery to your contacts randomly in the past.On the other hand, almost all Xiaomi devices have great custom ROM support and you can make sure you're not feeding telemetry with your data. Also for this genius:>>70975929
>>70976235Don't check out LG G5 and V20 unless you want to gamble with your data disappearing out of the blue because your phone bootlooped.

>>70976728What cope, you're bullshitting and taking about random nonsense.I don't care about MIUI and their ads, because I don't use it. Also:>>70950384
>>70976358To be devil's advocate, the tests aren't equal in the slightest. Zach drops the phones on flat concrete and that guy dropped the OP on pebble-imbued one. You can see where they punctured the glass because of the smaller contact surface. However you can see the marks align with the part of the screen that is the most exposed because of the curve, so there is definitely something to Samsung using a smaller curve and Gorilla glass 6 this year, but I guess the people at OnePlus didn't get the memo. Also the fuck is with the entire frame bending upon that second to last drop, this is the first time I see something like that, granted I don't really enjoy such videos so I haven't seen many.
>>70976458Stupid idiot. I'll piss on your face when the jack finally goes the way of functional bezels and removable batteries.

>>70978774>anything BUT Xiaomi
>>70979014>15 social credit points have been awarded to you. Glory to the Chairman, comrade
>>70978774What's the problem? No manufacturer beats them in the mid range segment. They're also not locked down like Samsung's mid range phones are.
>>70979035Also, if you care about camera performance at all - the last phones you should be looking at are Sony's.
as a xiaomi user who's going to be using them for the foreseeable future one of the main gripes i have with them is that no xiaomi phone is perfect and there's always something wrong with every modeli'm not talking major samsung galaxy note exploding battery, but like that one missing feature or thing that's below average when compared to other brands
>>70979090>as a xiaomi usergo get a job

galaxy s10+ or oneplus 7 pro or wait for note 10and why?
>>70979278Samsungs are good out of the box, but have shit updates.all others might as well be xiaomi quality.Xiaomis at least get updates and lineage.
Why does nobody talk about the Xperia 1? it seems like the best phone out there, albeit a bit overpriced.
Just bought s10+ works like a charm.Also the factory protective foil put in the screes is fat repellent, so i use it until it starts getting off on its own since it protects and its free.
>>70972649So I have a Moto X4 that I absolutely love. It's one of my favorite phones ever. But it's reaching two years of faithful service, and I'm beginning to think about getting a new phone. I live in USA, if that helps. I'm looking for something as close as possible to the x4, maybe with a bigger battery/CPU/RAM, but not much take else. Form factor is big for me, so I'm hoping for something much the same size.
>>70979544unironically this.I have the XL and can whole heartedly recommend it based on the battery life alone. idk if the regular one compares, haven't used it.

>>70979416>announced an age ago>still isn't out yet>gigahuge phone from a company mostly referenced in these threads in regards to their old compact flagshipsIgnoring my personal massive list of complaints about the device there really isn't any reason for it to be brought up here. Rather, why would anyone talk about the Xperia 1?
>>70979278cope because i saved $700 while having the same spec'd phone as you :)
>>70979647seems to be the best layout/aspect ratio. Sony has the best Android skin IMO. It Doesnt make any of the dumb compromises of all the overly talked about flagships.4k display is a dumb gimmick, but whatever. Seems to have good cameras. Honestly, I would get it, if it didnt cost $300 more than the OP7 pro.
>>70974772If only iOS was usable in a tablet
>>70979544>>70979564I thought about it, but no expandable storage is almost a deal breaker. Is it really worth it? I'm on Fi, so if I get one I get $100 in free credit
>>70979654Pretty sure Xiaomi cuts corners on everything but the SoC
>>70974772ARM tablets seemed irrelevant, once intel got competent enough low powered chips that you can now get full blown windows tablets (some of them can run linux to before some fag screams at me). The only reason would be like a small tablet, which I still use my shield tablet for travelling, but honestly phablets are cutting into that market as well. Phones are basically small tablets, and large tablets can now run full blown deskto OSes.
ZENFONE 6 ?
>>70979708Who the hell cares about expandable storage in 2019?
>>70979708absolutely worth it.>no expandable storageyeah it sucks but you can always get a USB OTG flash drive or a MicroSD reader
>not even 12GB RAMwtf is Assus doing
>>70979090What specifically is wrong? Their mid range devices are among the top performers in battery life tests, they also don't lack a micro SD card slot, a headphone jacks and an IR blaster. Displays have been getting progressively better as well (you can see professional tests on Notebookcheck.net).
