>>70980366>fingerprint on the backthey blew it
>>70980366That looks fragile
guyz Zenfone 6 or OP7 pro?
>Snapdragon 855>6.4” IPS LCD>Rotating 48MP + 13MP Wide-angle camera>up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage>5000mAh battery>HEADPHONE JACK AND EXPANDABLE STORAGE>Cheaper than OP7 or OP7 ProDid Asus just win?
>>70980443Are the last three points the only things it has over the Pro? There doesn't seem to be a telephoto lens and looks like it's stuck with UFS 3.0
>>70980443Does it have a 90hz display?
what's all the fuss about ufs? Galaxy flagships have older version yet s10+ is faster than OnePlus 7, which has ufs 3
How does the warranty work if I buy from eglobalcentral? I really want an S10e HK version
>>70980515Then I won't get it lolI really don't see how hard it is to get a higher refresh screen on a phone, like god damn. OP7P will have my sale until I see more of that
>>70980517Faster storage? I'm going to need the sauce with that, bro
Couldn't just make an edge to edge QHD OLED version for a few hundred more? or like add an optical zoom lens? it is soo close to being my perfect phone.
>mfw Zenfone 6 would've been perfect if it had band 13Fuck Verizon, I want out of this bullshit
>>70980443It's more expensive than the Mi9, so no, but looks promising as an alternative. Definitely glad to see the jack, SD slot and opting for the wide-angle instead of the telephoto lens (a mistake many chinkphones made last year). Shame it isn't OLED, it would absolutely obliterate the competition, but even like this, you're looking at 12-14 hours SoT so it should be exceptional in that regard. What's the state of the wireless charging and QC, does it support those?
>>70980565>Then I won't get it lolof course you wouldn't shill.
>>70980568Faster in general. What is the benefit of faster storage if it doesn't affect general performance. How would I see difference in normal use?
>>70980443>IPS>€499You done goofed
>>70980489Basically.It is headphone jack, battey, expandable storage cool camera thingy.V.S. OLED, telephoto lens, for $300. Personally I also prefer a rear mounted capacitive fingerprint scanner. But that is just me.
>>70980586No way we would shill, bro. Only opinions from me, you feel?
https://youtu.be/eMhnbJ5q8awimagine buying a phone with a bezel or a holeimagine some shitty fragile folding camera mechanism
I think 2020 will be the year that Android phones completely dominate the market. So many advancements are now coming into the smartphone world and its ALL on Android devices. Apple was banking on India and lost that battle. And now with a decline in iphone sales in the US, they are in deep shit. They have peaked and now its all down hill unless they come up with some really innovative technology.
>>70980557afaik you gotta ship it back to them for warranty replacements or repair
So none of these All screen phones have LED indicators do they? this seems like a really large omission nobody seems to notice or care about.
>>70980623Imagine having the shittiest battery life among all flagmansImagine having not water resistance and optical fingerprint sensor like cheap samshit
>>70980601Load times, storage transfers, everyday usage. UFS 3.0 is nearly twice as fast, bro; you wouldn't buy an eMMC smartphone if you were offered UFS, would you, anon?
>>70980667>12GB RAMThis is fucking retarded. You're not going to be running Windows 10 VMs on it.
>>70980655The Pro has this weird edge notification thing
>>70980656has water resistanceand under screen fingerprint scanner is faster than samshit's retard lmao
>>70980678>normal price $699>12 GB price $749An extra $50 for for an additional 4GB of ram seems reasonable, no?
>>70980656OnePlus gives you options, bro. Want smooth as fuck? You can turn both 90Hz and QHD+ down. You can't remove a physical cutout, can you, anon?
>>70980682Because even if you manage to connect all the required peripherals, the CPU isn't really strong enough.>>70980702Even 8GB is ridiculous.
>>70980671>everyday usageI just asked you how i will see difference in everyday usage and you answer with "you will see difference in everyday usage"...>load timeOf what? In all app loading tests galaxy wins>storage transfersWill it not be limited by other device/connection? Do you often transfer huge files?
>>70980635I think Apple is heavily shifting their focus to software business, mainly online services, at least that's what can be read from their recent acquisitions. At this point they can no longer make those exclusive to their hardware, but they could tailor their devices to have some extra features that tie better into them, selling iPhones in the process. But they definitely need to step back for a while and build up a new audience.
>>70980726Not to mention the lack of software.Is there even one Android VM host that works on ARM or whatever phones use?
>>70980697>under screen fingerprint scanner is faster than samshit's retard lmaocause it's unreliable as fuck and needs light, so turns the screen before unlocking. Outdated shit. Samsung at least introduces a new technology + unlocking speed has increased with updates.
>>70980734The fact is, it's still using significantly faster storage, no? What's the point of staying behind with UFS 2.1 when a significantly faster and newer storage is in place?
>>70980734>In all app loading tests galaxy winsI'll also need the sauce for that, bro
>>70980443Ya but Asus is a shit brand.>>70980552Really? I plan on paying off the phone day 1, does that mean it would immediately be unlocked?
>>70980781I am not arguing with it having a faster storage. You listed it among short list of key factors, so I asked you how it benefits normal use. And you gave no examples. Imo sequential read and write is not that important for a phone. The fact that galaxies outperform 7 pro in app opening speed and benchmarks proves that
Woah, hold on there, brahs. Before we settle this debate, how is Asus' software and update policy?
>>70980586It's not a shill. I want a smooth display above 60hz because 60hz is fucking trash.You can make cheap gook knockoffs for cheaper but if you aren't going to give me a better display, you know, the thing you're going to be fucking look at the entire lifetime of the phone, then why should I bother?
>>70980815Asus has always made shit phones, just because they copy hardware doesn't change much. Xiaomi's has a better chance of competing.
>>70980796>I plan on paying off the phone day 1, does that mean it would immediately be unlocked?we'll need to wait and see.https://www.androidauthority.com/t-mobile-oneplus-6t-bootloader-unlock-922051/
>>70980869Ahhh guess i'll just buy from oneplus and not risk it. Shipping can't take that long, right?
>>70980872live in the woods and invest until you can afford a OP7 Pro, the smartphone perfected
>>70980685does anyone have video of this?Functionally it is probably good enough for me, but it is probably ugly and battery draining.
Does Samsung still do weird shit if you root? like downgrade the camera app or whatever? likewise does OP? do anything? I assume no, but its hard to tell because all I know about their devices comes from shills.
Should I get a mi 9 or wait for the K20?
>>70980938>Does Samsung still do weird shit if you root?yes, warranty gets voided, Knox apps, S-health, Samsung Pay stop working, camera doesn't work properly on custom ROMs>likewise does OP? do anything?no, you even get to keep your warranty
>>70980814>so I asked you how it benefits normal use.Not the guy you asked, but I'll answer since he either left of doesn't want to. Faster storage is noticeable when handling large files. For UI navigation and small, everyday things with UFS 2.1 everything loads practically instantly anyway, so the difference in speed and smoothness between phones comes down to other hardware components and software.Now going back to scenarios where UFS 3.0 would make a difference, handling large files and I can only see three situations where that is needed. First is video handling, faster storage allows for recording 4k and 8k in higher bitrates and at the same time, opens such videos/movies faster. The second are games, everything should load faster from the app itself to the content. The third situation is image and video editing, going back to importing and exporting large files. However most people won't use a phone for actual work of that kind and those that do will go for Galaxy notes, because of the stylus functionality.As you can see, only in the first case it can make a significant difference, but it has to be supported by the rest of the hardware as well.
>>70980981>yes, warranty gets voidednot really, only if they know.> camera doesn't work properly on custom ROMsbut still works fine on stock rom with root? I remember reading somewhere that the camera fucked up a bit on the S8. But that may have been the Z5? all the phones I have used are a blur. Might have been samsung pay is why I didnt do it on the s8, and camera on the Sony.>no, you even get to keep your warrantySo I can buy an OP7 Pro, root it, and have literally 0 performance hit, feature loss, camera gimp, etc?
>>70980754>+ unlocking speed has increased with updatesit's still slow as shit with their gay ass puddle animation, atleast you can turn that shit off on the op7
Reminder that if you're okay with:>less that 5000mAh battery>front cameras>notch/holepunch>non-removable battery>no headphone jack >curved screen>rounded corners >no wireless charging >back fingerprint reader>no sd card slot>appleYou should immediately and unironically end it all.
>>70980726>Because even if you manage to connect all the required peripherals, the CPU isn't really strong enough.https://twitter.com/NTAuthority/status/1115339802503786496?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1115339802503786496&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.xda-developers.com%2Fwindows-10-arm-oneplus-6t%2Fahem
>>70981024>not really, only if they know.they will know, there's a hardware e-fuse that gets triggered when you unlock the bootloader. There's no way to reset it after it's been triggered. https://support.samsungknox.com/hc/en-us/articles/115013562087-What-is-a-Knox-Warranty-Bit-and-how-is-it-triggered-
>>70981067neat. I still don't care, but that is pretty jewish of them.
>>70980623no expandable storageshitty battery - worst among flagshipsno wireless charging in 2k19 no water resistanceno 3.5 jack90hz literally uselessshittiest cameras among all flagshipsshittiest face unlockshitty optical fingerprint scanner despite everybody jerking off at its screen, galaxies still have better screensno always-on display - such a disappointment in this yearSo, why is it shilled so much? The only things it has over s10+ is 90hz screen and some autists' inability to live with a camera hole.
>>70981085We've moved on from the Asus to the Samsung now?
>>70981085You forgot to add: Gorilla glass 5 when OP6T came with 6
Ok, second try>budget:100 dollars>country: Colombia>carrier: tigoI Just need someting with good batery life and comunity support
>>70981037>less that 5000mAh batteryWell, at least 4000 mAh is fine, I'm not sure where you'll find 5000 in abundance.>front camerasNot much you can do, there are no abundance of slider phones or phones with motorized cameras.>rounded corners Can be tweaked with software. Not sure if you can get the edges completely straight, but you can make the curvature minimal.>no wireless chargingOh yeah, this unfinished piece of gimmick again... Why? Do you just need your batteries to degrade faster, not charge as fast as with wired charging and having that retarded pad?>back fingerprint readerWhat's the problem? It's faster than in display fingerprint scanners and if something was to happen to those, you would most likely have to change the whole screen.
>>70981130What's the point of comparing it to asus? Asus is not out yet and will probably be shit, since it is asus.>>70981141thank youWhy are autists here so fascinated with chinkphones and why do they hate samshits so much?
>>70981202>What's the problem?inability to unlock the phone while it's on the table is the problem. Fingerprints on the back is a shitty design
>>70981024>but still works fine on stock rom with root? I remember reading somewhere that the camera fucked up a bit on the S8. But that may have been the Z5? Yeah, that's Sony phones you're thinking of. I'm not sure if the same happens on Samsung phones on the stock ROM, I don't think so.>So I can buy an OP7 Pro, root it, and have literally 0 performance hit, feature loss, camera gimp, etc?yes, that's right.
>>70981085>expandable storageyou have >128 GB of shit? hoarder>wireless chargingzoomer retard detected. 50% battery in 25 min > meme wireless charging [pad plugged into wall]>water resistanceI'll give you that, but other phones still do not offer warranties for water damage so in practice there's no difference between "claiming water resistance" and "IP certification">shittiest cameragoogle camera will improve, also literally gud enough>shitty face unlockwhat autist uses face unlock when there's a fingerprint scanner wtf>galaxies still have better screenshow's that permanent hole punch/pill Kim Wu?
>>70981199buy $100 of Cocaine, smuggle it to Miami, and then sell it to afford a better phone.
>>70981085also>shit batteryjust toggle off the 90 Hz? can you toggle off your hole punch/pill?
>oneplus shills irrevocably NECK THEMSELVEShttps://www.gsmarena.com/redmi_k20_antutu_score_revealed_dusts_off_competition_by_a_lot-news-37062.php>Redmi’s upcoming “flagship killer” K20 was officially confirmed by the brand’s General Manager Lu Weibing. Its main feature will be the Snapdragon 855 chipset which will be a first for a Redmi device. Today Weibing went on to give out more details and posted a screenshot of the device’s AnTuTu score with the phone living up to its “Demon King” nickname scoring 458,754 points.>The current high score on the benchmark is held by the Xiaomi Mi 9 with its 371,423 mark. Seeing such a disparity between the two phones means that the K20 could probably come with the new UFS 3.0 storage and superior cooling technology.ONEPLUS OFFICIALLY BLOWN ENTIRELY THE FUCK OUT FOREVER AND ALWAYS.
>>70981085The phone isnt released yet so pushing it hard before non shill reviews are out should maximize it's day one purchases. Short window of relevance. Sales go down after first week. People are dumb and buy on release. >>70981141>>70981209Gorilla glass 5/6 is marketing placebo. There are no comparison tests that show any real difference.REMEMBER NO PRE-ORDERS (wait for non shill reviews)
>>70981209>why do they hate samshits so much?Rooting for the underdog.
>>70981251Glad you agree that oneplus lacks shittone of features that even none flagships have today.
>>70981251Does this shill understand how stupid he sounds everytime he posts this?
>>70981326>REMEMBER NO PRE-ORDERS (wait for non shill reviews)But I really need a new fucking phone and can not wait that god damn long for this thing.
>>70981251>50% battery in 25 min > meme wireless charging [pad plugged into wall]Why not have both? Why do you hate having options with a burning passion?
>>70981294Isn't the chairman of Antutu also the founder of Xiaomi? I think I'll wait, desu
So what is up with every reviewer saying the Oneplus 7 pro Camera sucks complete shit, but DXO saying it is god tier? they said they had a not yet released update. But does anyone else have it yet?
>>70981329>Rooting for the underdog.literally rooting for human hating insects that treat their own countrymen like a resource and dream of creating total surveillance system with goodboy points to get rid of any wrongthink
>>70981375DXO are paid shills. Literally 0 non-paid shills have said anything positive about the Oneshit 7 Pro
>>70981375>But does anyone else have it yet?Not yet>Please note: The camera firmware used for the DxOMark tests is not yet currently available to consumers. OnePlus will make it available as an over-the-air update before the end of the month.
>>70981369>bothwhich phone charges that fast (or wirelessly)?
>>70981375Gee, I don't know... If everyone says it's shit and one commercial organization that influences consumer decision claims otherwise, who should we trust???
>>70981406There are probably paid shills in these threads. But I do not think DXOmark is paid shills.>>70981427the camera experts?>>70981413well, the phone wasn't out. I was wondering if any other independent org/person had access to it. Like a reviewer got it and tried it. Just want to verify DXOs findings with a secondary source. And figuire out why a single patch creates so much discrepancy.
>>70981396Hey, if they make nice phones, I'll take it bro. No need to agree with their ideal. I see no reason to take an S10e over the 7 Pro, at least where I live
>>70981462I am aware of that anon. Did you not read my post before you replied to it?
>>70981469>But I do not think DXOmark is paid shills.they're objectively paid shills dumbass.
>>70981486>stablished in 2008, DxOMark is an independent benchmark that scientifically assesses image quality of smartphones, lenses and cameras.The result of a rigorous scientific protocol using industry-grade lab tools, the DxOMark score sums up our assessment of a devices’ photo and video quality. The higher the score, the better the image quality.Objectively paid shills would imply OPO pays them to pretend to be random people and lie about their cameras as part of a scam or grift.
>>70981294>>70981374Eh, mobile benchmarks are flawed by design, but apparently the K20 or whatever they're actually naming it doesn't exclude a micro SD card slot, 3.5mm headphone jack and an IR blaster. We'll see tomorrow.
>>70980702>An extra $50 for for an additional 4GB of ram seems reasonable, no?until you realize you will never use that extra 4GB ram
>>70981505>they said so that means it's true
>>70981553>>70981553>until you realize you will never use that extra 4GB ramBruh, mind telling me a future lottery numbers as well?
>>70981561tinfoil post somewhere else.>>>/x/
>>70981570>Bruh, mind telling me a future lottery numbers as well?When you tell me what are you going to use 12 gigs of ram, bonus points if it's something that's in 2-3 years time max (because that's when you will have to throw the phone into the garbage bin)
>>70980443Shit software and no 90hz
>>70981596For that siiick multitasking, y'know? No way I want those reloads, and looks like OnePlus'll have the first phone for that kinda shit. I feel like I'm gonna dig that 12GB of multitasking
>>70981085How do people use up 256gb on their phones though?Like I have 0 idea how, what do you have to do to use that much data?

>>70980366NOW THE BACK OF THE PHONE HAS A NOTCHFUCK
>>70981920It's a pop-up notch, the best of both worlds.
Honest opinions on Zenfone 6 or you fucking stub your toe tonight.GO!
>>70981973I'm not sure. I don't care about Asus in general, desu
>>70981676music, photos, VR porn.
>>70981973perfect phone, except the screen, and lack of zoom lens falls flat. They made cuts where I would perfectly happily pay for these features.
>>70981973if they finally release the device tree ON TIME, and developers actually show interest in this device, which they never do, then it has a ton of potential, especially now since unlocking the bootloader only requires their official app now
>>70981814>>70981830It still has a dongle to use for headphones, but music is fair but I just stream my shit at this point and even with downloads from Spotify I only hit like 20 gigs on top of my apps and photos. How much do you guys have?>>70981893I suppose but I'm a faggot and rarely use my camera outside of snapchat
>>70981901P30 has an ugly ass notch and doesn't werk in USA, land of the freesame for Mi 9btfo
>>70982092what do you mean they don't work? the charging or the bands? because literally both the charging and the wireless GSM bands work in the US for both phones you mongoloid
>>70982092You asked for examples based on the charging speed and now that you got them, you're adding new criteria to move the goalpost. That indeed is getting btfo and then being asshurt about it.
Is the OP7P with 8gb RAM enough or would there actually be a noticeable different with 12gb?I feel like 12gb is a huge meme.
>>70982177>I feel like 12gb is a huge meme.it is
How the fuck is a case gonna work on the Zenfone 6?
>>70982175Fuck, that case looks cute, meanwhile the Mi9 officially has this... thing
>>70982158i thought it was common sensewhat retard would consider a phone with a hole in the screen in 2k19?
What phone has the best portrait camera for ~300?
>>70982184So t here will be 0 noticeable differences right?
>>70982220What poorfag would consider a phone without wireless charging in 2k19?
>>70982204I hope it comes with the phone, but that mi 9 one is just the worst.>>70982211Yes. Hopefully it will be announced soon and that we don’t need to wait long to import.
>>70981676I put a bunch of movies and tv shows on my phone since I just sit in a office with hardly anything to do. Video recording as well since I mess around with video editing for fun and to actually have some home family videos since we never had a camera of sorts growing up to capture family moments and that kinda shit.
>>70981719>wireless chargingI honestly don't understand the appeal of it. It's slower than cable and fucks with your battery over time. Are people that lazy they can't unplug a cable?
>>70981649The software is good now, though.
>>70982244Don't most phones not come with a wireless charging pad? How are you going to wirelessly charge a phone without a wireless charger?
>>70982244>i prefer a hole in my screen every second I'm looking at it>rather than plugging my phone into the wall, I can instead plug my charger into the wall then putting my phone on top of ittry harder
>>70982247Yea, I've been waiting for it. That's why I didn't buy Poco.

>>70982273You buy one, cutting-edge technology is not for the poor.>>70982284But it can do ~both, that is the premium aspect of it, no compromises.
>>70982336Isn't that the equivalent of Apple charging you separate for fast charging?

Asus is GOAT now.
>>> I can instead plug my charger into the wall then putting my phone on top of itI just keep the charger plugged in. Once I have it I can not go back. the charging pad sits elegantly in one spot, I manage the cable. I have one that is a phone stand and I just put my phone in my stand when I get home and it charges. Dont need to get like some thing to hold the loose cable when I am not charging, and dont have an ugly cord sticking out. Dont have to kill the USB C port or worry about other peoples phones having different standards either.
daily reminder:NO 3.5 JACK - NO BUY!NO SD CARD SUPPORT - NO BUY!GLASS BACK - NO BUY!NOTCH/HOLE - NO BUY!MORE THAN 1080p - NO BUY!CURVED SCREEN - NO BUY!POP UP CAMERA - NO BUY!NOT GOOD ENOUGH CAMERA - NO BUY!IN-SCREEN FINGERPRINT SCANNER - NO BUY!
>>70982393yeap. unfortuantley the screen is complete shit and the camera array is not that impressive. Would pay $200-$300 more for a curved OLED and a telephoto lens.
>>70982393if i'm paying more than $300 for a phone it better sure as fuck have OLED.
>>70981973Hope more manufactures will realize people still want 3.5 and microsd.
>>70982333Which one was it?
>>70982401>MORE THAN 1080p - NO BUY!but wouldn't you want this?
any chance of asus releasing zenfone 6z/6 pro?
>>70980403At least it's not an under display one
>>70982694Why, what's wrong with those?
>>70980443>Did Asus just win?Yes, but their software is still a buggy mess unfortunately.t. owner of Asus phone.
>>70982703They're slower, less accurate and less secure than traditional fingerprint readers
>>70982719>slowerNo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxRRguiMZdE>less accurate and less secureSource?
>>70981506IPS is better but virtually any standard except visuals
>>70982752Why does he wake the screen before unlocking it?
>>70982752>No>have to turn on display first to unlock it Just face it, it's slower>Source?Literally every review says the same thing, the under display fp reader is slower to register the fingerprint and unlock, and doesn't work reliably every single time ie. less accurate. It's also less secure because it can be fooled by a print of the fingerprint:https://www.biometricupdate.com/201904/hack-of-samsung-galaxy-s10-ultrasonic-fingerprint-sensor-suggests-no-liveness-detection>The ultrasonic biometric fingerprint scanner on a Samsung Galaxy S10 has been hacked with a 3D-printed copy of the phone owner’s thumbprint taken from a photograph of a latent print on a wine glass
>>70982815Because the screen needs to be on for it to work, I suppose.>>70982838Weren't traditional scanners fooled that way as well? I remember reading about it for iPhones.
>>70982463It seems as though you were right. He didn't bother answering for an hour.
>>70982853>Weren't traditional scanners fooled that way as well? I remember reading about it for iPhones.Yes, iPhone 5S from 2013, but a trick like that wouldn't fool any modern fingerprint reader.
>>70982895Give him some time, anon. His battery may have deteriorated even more
>>70982815>>70982838>>70982853I can't unlock my phone with the "old" scanner unless the screen is on/woke, either.I can also press the button that holds the scanner, but that's just another way to wake up the phone and I usually don't do that.
>>70980443no one outside of pajeets and the retards here will buy a phone that isn't googlel or samsung in the year of our lord 2019 AD purely because of the brand
>>70982853>Because the screen needs to be on for it to work, I suppose.That's not how it works on my phone. When off, if it detects a touch above the reader area, it will automatically wake that part off the screen to illuminate it. When done that way, the same way you'd use a classic scanner, it is slightly slower, just like this anon >>70982838 says.
What's the difference between FHD+ and HD+ on Moto G7 vs Moto G7 Power?
Wait, did I miss that they released a regular version too along the Pro?How good is it looking?
>>70982955they released a regular version, but not in america.
>>70982952HD+ is some tall aspect ration variant of 720p, FHD+ is the same but for 1080p.
>>70982964>aspect ration the fuck did I just write here?
So my budget was ~$250, and I was directed last thread to the moto z3. Found it for $250 hereI don't understand what the catch is, it's $350 everywhere else, but best buy has it for $250?https://www.bestbuy.com/site/motorola-moto-z3-play-with-64gb-memory-cell-phone-unlocked-with-battery-moto-mod-deep-indigo/6246960.p?skuId=6246960Everywhere else is like $350. Am I being memed? Is it refurbished?Alternative question: I was having issues finding budget phones in that price range that weren't chinese, if I bumped up my price to $400, what would be some good options? I know the google pixel 3a just happened, and that DOES seem interesting as it has a headphone jack, but are there other options around that price point?

Sony finally released a compact phone (5.0” 18:9, 140 x 67mm). Bad news is it's Japan exclusive.http://www.xperiablog.net/2019/05/16/xperia-ace-announced-japan-exclusive-for-now/

>>70983088Mediocre specs and not that compact.
>>70983048Most of the posts you see on /g/ are from Chinese shell companies.
>>70983145Take a shot and get a Redmi note 7, wait 15 days for the unlock process, slap lineageOS + MicroG on it. Then you wont have chinked botnet, and a good fucking phone. Win-win. $210 for the phone, + 40 bux for a 256gb microsd. All phones are ultimately chinkphones, get over it.
>>70983206Pretty much this but the only thing that guy would probably have to worry over would be bands
>below 5" >notchless/holeless>side fingerprint power combo>3.5mm headphone jack>yellow optionIS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK? S10e is literally perfect but THE FUCKING HOLE
>>70983228I have practiced what I preach, got a note 7 in my mailbox that I'll test this out on t mobile with
>>70983228>>70983145 I'm not this guy but just had a look at the Note 7 and I'm disappointed it lacks NFC otherwise I would've gone for it...
>>70983247Redmi Note 7 isn't a good choice on T-Mobile in terms of futureproofness, no band 12 means no VoLTE support which means you won't be able to make phone calls once T-Mobile shuts down their 2G and 3G networks, currently planned to happen by 2020.
>>70983206Promising, but at the same time seems like a lot of places where I could fuck up the phone unlocking it.>>70983228I'm currently having issues with my OPO finding and connection to T-Mobile bands, that's why I'm currently looking for a new phone. If there's any possibility I'm going to run into the same issue on a new phone, I don't want to bother.I've spent the last month with tech support, web tutorials, factory resets, everything short of getting someone to physically tear it appart. The whole experiance has scared me and I just want to have a phone I don't have to worry about connecting to T-Mobile signal. >>70983247I appreciate that. Where would you guys recommend to pick up a note 7 anyways?
>>70983235Just wait for S11e with under display selfie camera
>>70983349Wait. What the fuck?So it won't pick up 4G LTE and won't be able to make calls on it?
Do manufacturers save money by not adding support for certain frequencies or bands?The only thing keeping me from buying a Redmi Note 7 Pro is that the 4G bands of Canadian carriers are not fully supported by the phone..
>>70982838>The ultrasonic biometric fingerprint scanner on a Samsung Galaxy S10 has been hacked with a 3D-printed copy of the phone owner’s thumbprint taken from a photograph of a latent print on a wine glassoh shit, secret agent Cody Banks might get access to my contacts.seriously though, in what disney movie do you live where you would ever have to worry or even think about a scenario like that unfolding?also I have an s10, you don't have to wake the screen up before scanning
>>70983349Holy shit, WHEW. Dodged a major bullet, thank you friend. So for $400 I guess I'm going to just go with a PIxel 3a, unless there's other suggestions?
>>70983383what kind of retarded question is thatwhy would you leave out a feature if it costs nothing
Im going to change my phone in july but im so fucking confused since there is new relase every day. Which one should i get in about 2 months. Price doesn't matter.
>>70983403Asus Zenfone 6OneChink 7 PloXiaomi Mi Mix 3 5GXiaomi Mi 9Redmi K20 if it will support your bands when officially announced
>>70983376No, it will pick up 4G (at least in most places), but it doesn't support VoLTE (voice over LTE) because that requires band 12, so calls happen only through 2G or 3G. Once T-Mobile shuts down their 2G and 3G networks like they're planning to, no more phone calls.

>>70983397A simple yes would have sufficed, sir
I want to get the OP7P but I wanted to know if any US bros have experience with Tmobile, since I'm an impatient faggot and don't want to wait for it to ship, do you know if T-mobile's version becomes unlocked if you pay it off? I'm going to buy it all at once anyways.I just don't want it to be T-mobile exclusive if I sell it in like 3 years.
>>70982664anything more than 1080p is an overkill meme that only makes the device more expensive
Just got my OnePlus 7 Pro. Gotta say, the battery life is way better than I expected.
>>70983819What the fuck how did you get it already?

>>70983956>also the in-screen fingerprint scanner have only drawbacks to the normal one.and it seems that one of the things they had to do to make it less shitty is to increase the fucking size a bit, which the OnePlus 7 has going for it.

Even the over the phone support was awesome, especially when I didn't buy my phone through them, they still did their best to try to figure out what the issue was. Service is okay, but might get better when the sprint/tmobile merger goes through.
>>70984076They're okay just make sure you get service in your area.
How are curved edge screens? I like the OP7 Pro but those screen edges really turn me off. I never liked it on the samsung phones.
>>70981649>>70982715They debloated the ZenUI with this update faggots, it will be similar to pure android, somewhat. Which is THE must for me coming from the nexus era and then coping with Android One. Also Zenfones lose value dramatically overtime, so it will be a fucking best buy sooner or later
>>70984620According to most reviews, it's not extreme enough to matter or be noticeable in the long run, but hey take that as you will.

XL was worth the upgrade price.i only have minor complaints, like you have to use google assistant to turn on the flashlight which means you either have to say "flashlight" aloud or type the word out. and when you pull up the phone to call someone, a "favorites" list comes up and you have to press another button to get to the dialer which is just retarded.haven't had any trouble with calls so far but a friend with the phone had an inexplicably choppy one calling from home, only time will tell how the service is.
>>70985250I didn't even specify the phone's name. Fuck right off and jump off a cliff while you're at it, dipshit.

>>70985930>defending a hole in the displayI must be dreaming. Doesn't everyone straight up despise the notch, nevermind the shitty one Samsung uses? How the fuck is that preferable over using a dongle?
>>70985930How are they a nuisance? Just plug them to your earphones and they're a part of it now. Or do you use your massive desktop Sennheisers with your phone when you're going out? In that case just switch the dongle out. It takes but a second. Same shit logic as the losers who shill wireless charging>BUT BRO I DON'T NEED TO PLUG IN THE CABLE LOL fucking zoomers
Nothing's ideal in the smartphone world but prefering a hole in your display over having to use a dongle is just pants on retarded. Absolutely inexcusable. You stare at your screen all the time, you really okay with that ugly fucking notch just because you don't have to use a dongle? God damn.

Is 12GB of RAM complete overkill?
>>70983530You're missing pretty much everything. As far as I know, you have to either flash a zip that removed encryption before flashing a custom ROM or use the wipe data option in TWRP. And then you wipe system, cache, dalvik/art cache, data. Only after that you flash the ROM. Also, Redmi Note 7 has other custom ROMs available, no need to use barebones Lineage OS.
>>70986149Waste of money. Read what you have to do for the money.>>70986162most shills are not chinks.>>huurrr r durr huru durShill more hur dur guy and the oneplus guy.
>>70986180I honestly don't know why a phone would need more than 4GB currently.I get the idea of having more than enough, on a PC it makes sense because you can always multitask more.But phones are already super snappy and intelligently kill apps when needed.App startup time is already quick and you need to have a shitton open for task killing to be an issue at 4GB.Seriously, has anyone with a 4GB phone here every experienced any kind of slowdown?

I see Xiaomi has begun to put the IMX586 sensor into their cheaper +200 dollar Redmi Note 7 Pro.It was only 1 year ago the 586 was the revolutionary high end sensor.You can sort of tell They are really trying hard to squeeze high value into their Redmi series.
>>70986262She's 21 and has been through over 8 phones (I know because I checked her device history when she lost one of her phones and I tried to use the GPS to find it).She will never learn responsibility, I just want to save some money when she inevitably drops this one.It's $100 now and then $75 to repair any damage from drops or water, etc or $125 for a full replacement if lost or stolen.
>>70981199Get another $100 (and some extra bucks for shipping and etc.) and buy a Redmi Note 7 from Amazon. That's the best investment you'll ever do.

>>70986360Pixel cameras are seriously the best, you point and shoot and you're almost guaranteed to have a fantastic picture. On other phones you might have to adjust focus to get the perfect picture or some other BS, Pixel knows what the fuck you want and gives it to you.
