>JULY FUCKING 11TH>STILL NO US DATE FOR THE ZENFONE 6ASUS YOU MOTHERFUCKERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.JUST GIVE US THE DATE
>mi a3i might learn to tolerate the meme rounded screen corners, but i swear to God if there's no easy built-in way to disable the notch (move the whole thing down, not just darken the 'ears'), then it can go straight in the fuckin garbage tbqhwy
>>71837009If they actually do end up upgrading the SoC like the rumors say it would make the Mi 9T obsolete in a lot of ways. Nearly identical specs + expandable memory, stock Android, lower price, the only real downside being the notch.
My pocomeme is great 90% of the time but by God the last 10% is infuriating>notification icons don't persist because of being cockblocked by xbox hueg notch>can't paste text without formatting>bug in debugging mode setting locks out Fortnite and FGO even if you switch it off>theme randomly switching to night mode and back again with no actual night mode toggle in the settings>GPS quick setting controls ONLY the GPS, doesn't control location settings>native Android file manager hidden to force me to use the crappy Mi file manager>the worst excuse for ""stereo"" speakers I've ever come across in a phone>touch lag difference between edge of screen and centre STILL isn't fixed>ads I'm seriously considering selling it and just getting an OP6T or spending a little extra for an OP7 instead.
>>71837441People will still buy the 9t for the meme pop up camera and no notch for sure.
>>71837441the Redmi Note 5/6 and the Mi A2 had nearly identical specs as well, this is nothing new for them
>>71837252The sweepstakes ends on the 15th, maybe they'll say something on that day or the following day.
Just decided to browse /g/ and would like to know you guys' opinion on the OnePlus 7 Pro
>>71837194Any modern good smartphone that is no taller than 5.5 inches?My Xiaomi Mi4c is dying and I can't find a good cheap replacement of the same size.The Xiaomi mi6 is fucking expensive for its hardware.I would buy one of those Xiaomi Mi 8 something if they were smaller.
What's a decent mid budget smartphone ($200-$600)? I'm in California, with T-Mobile. A decent camera and up to date OS are the two things I'd really appreciate, but I feel like I'll probably have to settle for an average camera if I'm not willing to drop more cash.
>>71837624essential phone, or any other phone thats 18:9 or greater ratio with a corner to corner screen size thats no bigger than 5.7"
>>71837673Pixel 3a, have you been living under a rock?
>>71837673i swear to fuck Californians are the dumbest fucking idiots
im really interested in A3 but also almost pulling the trigger on lg g7.

>>71837699>>71837716I buy a new smartphone every 3 years. Am I bad goy for not being up to date on the latest mindless consumer trends?
>>71837252Yo that phone would be good for some creepshotsAll jokes aside that screen ratio is fucking sexy and that battery, it's so big
>>71837885>>71837624>>71837302>>71837194look how dope its notification LED will behttps://youtu.be/k4S3tCuCKLk?t=236
>>71838319no notch and popup selfie camera would make this the greatest phone since the nexus 4
>>71838319time when they show the notification led? i don't speak whatever language that was
how in the FUCK do you enable notifications for miui 10
>>71838680damn that's dopei'm definitely getting one for my next phone. checks every box for me
>>71838707we both matewhite for mewhat about u?
Is there anything special I have to do to go from cyanogen to lineage?Or do I just repeat the process (basically) of installing cyanogen only with lineage.
>>71838319Impressive Christmas led technology
>>71838742If you are still on cyanogen it would be easier just to backup any APKs and files and do a clean install with LineageOS
>>71838742Holy shit, what phone do you have that still has CM? Yes, just do the normal wipes then install ROM, Gapps, Magisk
>>71837194CC9e would be so damn nice, but they had to shit on it with 720p display.
Wait, actually, how do I go back to stock?I don't think lineage is supported on this phone.>>71838825I already wiped it back to stock. cyanogen.>>71838835Mom's broken Xperia Z2, sitting in a desk for a while. I'm fixing it to play something with multiple phones. Turns out it was just the power button ribbon cable that was broken.Also I have my old phone with cyanogen
>>71837252no shit july 16 my fat ass...
I want the Xperia 1 but it's so stupidly expensive
>>71838966I wanted headphones anyways so I thought of it as a $250 discount.If I think about it, I've never owned headphones this expensive before. Even the Beyerdynamics weren't more than $200
My Lenovo Z6 Pro formats SD cards to FAT32. Any way I can make it format them to exFAT?
>>71837194>Mi A3Will it be able to run Asphalt9 in high setting at 60 Hz?I think not!
>>71837252Based Asus autist
>>71837450>I'm seriously considering selling it and just getting an OP6T or spending a little extra for an OP7 instead.No, don't, just learn to use your phone and then flash a custom ROM. I know you don't know what the fuck you're doing since you're getting ads.
>>71837194>upgraded chipset>730>6752017 called they want their 2nd rate parts back
>>71837673Pixel 3a for sure, you're basically describing it.
>>71837252I'm so fucking done with asus phones and them basically shitting all over their lineup after the Zenfone 3 series>release like a bunch of phones>stick to updates on highest end>security updates lacking for MONTHS at a time>legit issues and complaints and feeback over their 225-150 dollar line phones >lol fixes coming>1 year later no fix for camera quality/driver issues>most still suffer from boot loopingon a high scale>storage flash is still always shit>battery life on their "max' range is dogshit for what it should be because all the asus bloatware (inb4 hur dur flash it)Every damn time I gave up with the Zenfone M1 max because dogshit lack of updates, but the Zenfone 3 Max? still chugging and now better with the final update of 8.1, even the camera/battery life and all that shit is all better from that old shit.
>>71839767>upgraded chipset>730>675>2017 called they want their 2nd rate parts backWhat second rate parts? The 675 supports 48 MP sensors, has single core performance on par with the 845 and can run the currently most demanding mobile game.

>>71840064Typically AliExpress, use Kimovil to check if you have a specific phone in mind
Aw shit A3 hype, someone recommended me that one last thread, since I want either a tablet or another phone to replace my Redmi note 3 pro to separate my work stuff from my online shit.
I will probably snatch an a2 for 140 and call it a dayI'm not paying 250 for a phone, to fuck it up and drop it in two daysRugged and cheap is the name of my game
>>71840064ebay, literally 75% cheaper
>>71840337A2 seems like its price went down.Damn, it all depends on what's improved on A3 for me then, if it's not much I might just get an A2 as well.
Do you have to worry about telemetry or spyware with chinkphones?Even if you flash the original rom from their website, can it still have malware on it?
>>71840415Just don't install WeChat and you'll be fine.
>>71840367>AMOLED over LCD>Bigger battery>Better processor>under display fingerprint reader>significantly better camerasit's better in just about every way. At release it'll cost probably twice as much, but it'll come down. And you're getting another year of updates to buy the A3 newto me A3 will 100% be worth it, but I can also see where A2 looks like a valid option. Make sure you get the 6 gb ram variant though, the 4 gb variant has issues with ram management. Or honestly just consider the redmi note 7 at that price point, it's better in every way except OS
Ordered a 1+7 yesterdaynow I'm IMPATIENT AS FUCK
>>71840415Just use a custom ROM as you should anyway. If it's with microG even better.
>where I live it's about 10% cheaper to buy a grey import OP7 with the reseller's markup than it is to buy an officially sold local OP6T What the heck why are the local suppliers ripping us all off
>>71840573in hong kong it's way cheaper to just go north of the border to buy OP7 in shenzhen and flash the ROMthey're being jews
>>71840536"Dunnoman" is an anagram for "Dumn anon". Coincidence? I think not.
I just got a Xiaomi A2 Lite and it's my first android phone, are there any recommended changes for this phone ?
>>71837450b.but spg told me that pocophones are better than iPhones?
>>71840997Android one is fantastic as isDisplay size -> small
>>71841021He doesn't know what the fuck he's doing. The retard couldn't have turned a few toggles off during the initial setup so he wouldn't see ads.
Is blokada good enough with system wide shit?I want something that won't waste battery, won't need root and will block ads for apps that often have those. I heard using the adguard private DNS would work but I think I'd rather go with something like quad9
>>71841038What about everything else on that list that isn't about ads?
>>71841044Buy those apps and call it a day
>>71841045The notification bar can be completely replaced so more notification icons fit and fit permanently with a single zip file.About pasting text - I don't know what the fuck he's doing, but he should be using SwiftKey with a firewall. It's most likely keyboard software related.He didn't say which specific developer setting is causing him issues, so - morning to really respond to. There's no need to even fiddle with this when the phone has the second best Snapdragon money can buy.He most likely turned on automatic night mode without noticing. As I said, a retard. Can't even install a different file manager... He's also complaining about speakers on a fucking smartphone... They're all garbage and always will be garbage just due to physical size.That about covers it.
So I asked the other day but got no answers, is there anything extremely wrong that I should know about the Mi Mix 3 5G before I pull the trigger?
>>71837450GPS quick setting only controls location on my Huawei too, it's not that much of a bother to hold the icon for a second and turn it off proper
>>71841374no custom shit for it
I currently have a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime on T-Mobile. What's a good non-Chink under $200?
bought the Moto g7 power for $200 not too long ago. before buying this phone, check if it has a compass or nfc if you want those features. the phone I bought had neither of those features.
>>71841438Do yourself a favor and get the Mi A2
>>71841560>3000 mAh battery>no micro SD card slot>no headphone jack>eMMc issuesYeah no.
I've been rocking the Moto /g/ for years now and am looking to upgrade but I can't be arsed to spend a lot of dosh.Is the Motorola One good?
>>71841603Mi A2 Lite then
>>71841666>Is the Motorola One good?noget the Mi A2, Mi A2 Lite, or the Mi A3 (will be announced today)
>>71841738Why? Redmi Note 5 is better and can be had for under $200. For slightly more than that you can get the Redmi Note 7.
>>71841746Any chance of the Mi A3 having a headphone jack?I kinda need that.
>>71841803Note 5 comes with MIUI which sucks ass>>71841813seems like the Mi A3 will have a headphone jack
>>71841979>seems like the Mi A3 will have a headphone jackBased, thanks
>>71841560>>71841803I said no Chink shit
>>71842030everything under 200€ that's not Chinese (still manufactured in China ofc, just with a non-Chinese brand logo) is trash.
>>71841979>Note 5 comes with MIUI which sucks assYeah. But there are dozens of custom ROMs for it, so it doesn't matter.
>>71841104>The notification bar can be completely replaced so more notification icons fit and fit permanently with a single zip file.You mean installing a hacky app with an overlay?>About pasting text - I don't know what the fuck he's doing, but he should be using SwiftKey with a firewall. It's most likely keyboard software related.no, MIUI's native selection menu does not have the the "paste as plain text" option that pretty much every other ROM does. Meaning that copy and paste text brings all the links and formatting with it.>He didn't say which specific developer setting is causing him issues, so - morning to really respond to. There's no need to even fiddle with this Switching on USB debugging mode for something as simple as debloating or giving battery stats permissions permanently flips some flag that games like Fortnite and FGO detect and then refuse to launch after, even if you switch it off afterwards. Google it, the bug has been there for months now and Xiaomi refuse to fix. No other ROM does this.>He most likely turned on automatic night mode without noticing. Global Stable doesn't even have user-facing night mode toggle, let alone an automatic night mode option. The retard devs did something that flips it on in the last OTA and since there's no user-facing toggle I can't flip it back off, plus it isn't even implemented properly because opening the settings menu freezes the phone for a second and then turns it back off but with all the icons changed to Classic defaults instead of the Poco icons. >Can't even install a different file manager... I don't want to clog up my phone with a different file manager, I just want to use the basic built in manager. What's wrong with that?>complaining about speakers on a fucking smartphoneI'm complaining about the STEREO speakers. The phone was advertised as having stereo audio, but the earpiece speaker is so quiet that it may as well not actually exist.
>>71842110>You mean installing a hacky app with an overlay?Well, don't and feel free to keep dealing with bullshit the notch caused. Ain't no shit off my shirt.>no, MIUI's native selection menu does not have the the "paste as plain text" option that pretty much every other ROM doesI don't remember that. Just try another keyboard, it doesn't cost you anything.>Switching on USB debugging mode for something as simple as debloating or giving battery stats permissions permanently flips some flag that games like Fortnite and FGO detect and then refuse to launch after, even if you switch it off afterwardsWeird. I'm not playing either of those or any other games period.>No other ROM does this.Another argument for not dealing with MIUI's bullshit any more.>I just want to use the basic built in manager. What's wrong with that?I don't know, it being gimped and requiring every permission including the only one it really needs (read from storage). You have a micro SD card slot, one usable file manager isn't going to kill you.>The phone was advertised as having stereo audio, but the earpiece speaker is so quiet that it may as well not actually exist.This is why you use ViPER4Android.
just bought a mi 9 (did i fuck up?)
>>71842243no, good choicemight wanna replace MIUI with a good custom ROM tho
>>71842273kinda lazy and miui is pretty good i think. whats the biggest reason to switch? i dont care about botnets desu they can sell my soul
In terms of custom ROM compatibility, are the Mi Mix 3 and the Mi 9T good or bad?
The Mi A3 looks so good, it seems fishyThey have to fuck up in some way
>>71842295if you're ok with MIUI it's fine, I think it's bearable tooI just like stock Android much better
>>71841438Moto G7 Power, is over $200 but only just ($229 for the US unlocked or T-Mobile version, international version is cheaper but missing bands for T-Mobile)
>>71842110>>71837450MIUI Beta has permanent notification icons
crdroid best custom for the a2 lite?
>>71842380There is still a decent chance the SoC upgrade rumors are complete bullshit and it comes with a 665/710.
How expensive is the Mi A3 gonna be.want to spend £150 or less. Note 7 is still good, right?
>>71842837Snapdragon 660 is dated as fuck
>>71842554If they upgrade the soc it's very likely the prices are gna be fukd. Looks to me like they're trying to be premium now. The overblown camera mp, memey back plate and a that jazz.. Just hoping the a3 lite gets a better screen too if they upgrade the soc.
>>71842837Look at the cc9 and cc9e prices. So probably $230+ for the lite and $280+ for the full a3.
>>71842896>>71842939ill prob just get the note then. dont care about performance for 4chan browsing.
>>71842898More expensive than before for sure, but I doubt they'd price it above the Mi 9T. It would still be a good deal.
is the pixel 3a good? I don't want a huge phone like the Mi 9T but the processor and the 4GB of ram of the pixel seem kind of dated
How big is the difference between Mi A2 and Note 7 Pro? Those are the two phones I'd like to upgrade to. My budget isn't big. I was thinking about OnePlus 7 as well, but I'm just playing shitty mobage most of the time so it kinda feels like a waste. Are there better options for that price range? (£200-400)
>>71843014Don't get the Mi A2, it's trash. >Are there better options for that price range?Pocophone, Mi9T
>>71842985yes it's good, tho a bit overpriced. I'd get the Mi A3 instead.
Are chink phones unironically better than tablets for just playing shitty mobile games on? When was the last good tablet since the shield that wasn't overpriced?
>unlocked s10e SD variant>still on May 2019 security patchAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>71843423What did you expect from a current Samsung Galaxy? They took a shit on everything. The original S1 all the way to the S7 were some of the most popular devices to develop custom ROMs for. But no, fuck you, have an Exynos. At least the A70 is a global Samsung phone with a Snapdragon SoC. Something might happen with it.
>>71843423Can't even keep their own fucking promiseshttps://security.samsungmobile.com/workScope.smsb>Current Models for Monthly Security Updates1 Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S8 Active, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10e
>>71843464the relevant parts of the world get the Snapdragon devices tho.
>>71843476Yeah. That relevant and totally FREE™ part of the world gets their CARRIER LOCKED Snapdragon devices. What a great fucking deal!
>>71843464I thought Exynos devices outperformed the SDs for a generation or two, what happened?
>>71843423Yeah, same with the A50But apparently it's because the June update that pajeets are "enjoying" is a bit fucky with something they fixed on a previous update. Samsung ain't so good with updates. Oh well, at least shit hasn't been giving me trouble.
>>71843527>rent free>still wronghttps://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-Factory-Unlocked-Phone/dp/B07N4M412B
>>71843555SD always > Exynos
>>71843555Not anymore, but Exynos docs are far more complicated to make custom ROMs for.>>71843563Don't know what the fuck do you mean with that /pol/ bullshit and who in the actual flying fucking fucking fuck cafes if your devices is unlocked? It doesn't change anything for you. You'll still get two Android version updates and you're done, even if you've bought the most expensive model. Keep consuming genius.

Your post >>71843527 directly states that amerifats only get CARRIER LOCKED Snapdragon devices, but the link at >>71843563 easily disproves then. Then you move goalposts at >>71843594 by saying that "who in the actual flying fucking fucking fuck cafes (sic) if your devices is (sic) unlocked," while replying to your original post in >>71843527 that, again, claims that amerisharts only get CARRIER LOCKED Snapdragon devices.tl;dr you a gay
Prople who have an A40 here, what cover do you use?
>>71843651Wow, great win there buddy. And what are you going to get out of your device being unlocked? Huh? What's it unlocked for? Certainly not custom ROMs, because there aren't any and you're done after two years. Very conveniently skipped that part I see. Eh, I don't care really, I'm not the one getting ripped off.
>>71843464>The original S1 all the way to the S7 were some of the most popular devices to develop custom ROMs for.Yeah but in contrast those devices pretty much fucking required said custom ROMs not to be sluggish garbage. Current devices you just disable the shit you don't want through adb and unless you really dislike how shit looks, it's near lagless.
>>71843672some nillkin cover
>>71843360Android tablets are shit, if you have to have a tablet get the baseline iPadotherwise get a large screen phone like the Mi 9, Mi 9T or Redmi Note 7 (OnePlus 7 Pro if you want the best of the best)if you don't want chinkphones the Galaxy A70 has an excellent large screen at a relatively low price

Looking for smartphone with big screen and no notch/holeshould I buy xiaomi mi t9?
>>71845997I own a mi mix 3 and my only two complaints are how hard to take apart it is because of the slide mechanism and how heavy it is, my pants fall down if I'm not wearing a belt with it in my pocket, The t9 is about 30 grams lighter and has a 25% bigger battery. I bought the mi mix 3 because I didn't want a notch but I have come to think that a notch is a slight annoyance rather than a reason to avoid a phone.
>>71845997It's either that or OP7 Pro depending on how much you want to spend.

I've looked at the market and these rebrands they let out these days are garbage. Lower spec than their predecessors for more money.
Help a retard out please. I got a pocophone f1 and what I assume is some aggressive battery saver thing is fucking me over. I want to record hiking/biking tours (with komoot) but a few minutes after locking the screen it stops recording position data. How can I tell my magic pocket computer to keep it running?
can i get a final confirmation on this; will Redmi Note 7 work well in US.im moving there soon and the last thing I want is for my phone to not work.
Huawei p20 or A3?

>>71842380notchrounded screen corners
there is like 1273917 new xiaomis phone announced, so which one will be the best?
>>71847721Snapdragon's naming convention is the only one that makes any sense
>>71844598>Does fast charging actually ruin your batteryyes
>>71847816>>71842380why didn't xiaomi just use the k20/9T for the A3? at least make an A3 Pro for the love of god!
Why should I get the A3 instead of something like the OnePlus 6T (excluding price difference)?
>>71847818Mi 9 right now, in a few months Mi Mix 4. These will get the longest and earliest official updates, and the custom/modding support for the Mi 9 not even half a year after release is amazing.
>>71844598Then how the hell are you supposed to NOT do it? Half the phones that come with that shit don't let you disable it.
so... how much ram do I need?I use only clover, chrome and youtube
>>71848196I'd say minimum 3gb, it's what I have and make do.
>>71847989Micro SD card slot, headphone jack and possibly better battery life. But let's wait to see what it really is first.
>>71848194Use a slow charging brick
>>71848196there is a noticeable difference between 3 and 4 gb in most phones that i've usedthere is no real noticeable difference between 4 and 6 gb in most phones, except mi A2 (6gb is legendary god mode in that phone, 4 gb can lock up the phone when you close chrome etc)so i'd say 4 gb in every phone is okay except mi A2
holly shit i don't know what to choose between lgg8s and s10e (exynos version)i have been using lg g6 for like 2 years and it would be perfect if it had oled screen, and battery is going down so i have to change it, on the other hand s10e seems to perfect phone for this price but idk if exynos version is as that bad as you all say
>>71847643it just depends on whether you want a big screen or not, also the 530 on the V20 doesnt support Vulkan OOTB like the GPU on the 660, go check out tge XDA forum for the V20 and you'll find the Vulkan drivers there and installation instructions as well
>>71848196at least 4gb.
Hey /spg/ Help me choose between the Nokia 8.1 (the one I initially wanted, because of Android One), the Motorola One Vision (Android One as well) and the Samsung Galaxy A50 which is kind of nice as well but doesn't have Android One.I'd like to have at least Android 9, a compass, good GPS, fingerprint sensor and at least 3500mAh battery. Are there any other mobilephones matching this criteria?
>>71849366Mi A3 my nigger
It's infuriating that you can't control which lens to use in any of the galaxy phones with pro modeIs this a thing with every other phone too?
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH IT IS OUT
Looking for a phone at ~$400 US, preferably with the best camera possible, but I can't give up expandable memory for the Pixel 3a.Any recommendations? Currently looking into the Samsung A50, but I wanted to check here to see if anyone else had ideas.US, Sprint
Man I sure hope the Mi A3 has at least 10 cameras or I'm not buying it
>>71849895>Any recommendations?Pixel 3a>I can't give up expandable memoryFUCK YOU
>>71837194Anyone here who has got the Pixel 3a? Is the glossy plastic back scratching easily? I'm kind of tempted to buy one, but I don't want to end up with a phone which looks like crap in a month. I it does I might end up with a Mi A3, assuming I'll be able to buy one.>I also hate cases, screen protectors, etc.

I will be switching from an ZTE Axon 7 to a Xiaomi Mi 9T, is there any big differences in the Os? Anything I should know before I switch over to MiUi?
>>71849895Camera on that one is fairly limited by software, despite being an ok sensor. Also no custom ROM support. Still good phone.
>>71850063As long as the screen is not 720p and the cost is similar to the cc9e idgaf about upgraded SD processor
>>71850130mi a3 will have FHD+ screeni bet the lite version will have an inferior panel.

>>71850091MIUI shits the bed hard.If you like anything remotly near stock android, don't buy it.>>71850169my uncle is at Xiaomi HQ
>>71850112I've seen a few posts around about being able to put gcam onto it, which sounds like it could help make up some of the difference in the camera quality. Would you say it's worth getting if that's true?
>>71848763Yeah, isn't the one with the 660 weaker though in comparison because of the gpu? Anyways I'll check the forums for vulkan, thanks.
>>71838500popup camera is a meme, but at least you know the phone isn't trying to take photos of your face without your knowledge
The A3 looks kind of chunky, like the a2 liteThank God the screen is not going to be ass
>>71849873>>71849945>>71849965let me guess, Xiaomi still didnt give it Band 12/17 LTE support, right?
>>71850520let me guess you're an amerifat buying carrier branded phones?
>>71850530wow, all the memes in the world and you only got one thing rightlet me guess, you're a filthy piece of eurotrash who enjoys watching your precious civilization become muddled by the "refugees" you lot were stupid enough to let in from your single room (read closet sized) apartment while feigning superiority? i abhor carrier branded devices, I buy my devices outright and use prepaid services, i understand its a bit much for an utter moron such as yourself to conceive that outside of your prejudiced inclinations, however that's the way is
>>71850606>let me guess, you're a filthy piece of eurotrash i'm not, not even kidding
>>71850648k well i dont use carrier branded devices, and as a matter of fact im using a RN5 whyred running Havoc OS v2.7 and i love the fucking device except for thw lack of B12/17 supporti just fucking wish Xiaomi would actually introduce this phone to our market because people would flock to this and force the carrier model to disintegrate which would open the door for better midrange device access here, but yet they always pull this bullshit where they think Americans won't buy their phone if they were officially sold here which is nonsense
>>71850704ok mate, sorry for the preconception towards you there.
>anon what kind of phone did you get?its called a pocophone f1...>a poopphone f1 you said? gross>why did you get a poopphone?because its cheaper than all the others>god what a loser you are
>>71850798imagine being insecure about the phone you use
>Your battery is going to charge extremely quickly, courtesy of the latest Snapdragon processor’s Quick Charge 3.0 support. It’s got wireless charging support as well, which means you can even charge it without wires at fast speeds. Those speeds are set to get even faster, with Qualcomm now supporting and certifying wireless chargers.Since when processors affect so many things ?
>>71850847It's not a processor, it's a SoC (system on chip)
Think my Moto G4 may be starting to die of old age and use.Original plan was to replace it with Huawei Honor phone, they are cheap and fit everything I liked but well that seems a little fucked now.>root/bootloader unlock>1080 decent screen>expandable storage>battery life>cheap priceI really just look for something that gives me control, lasts awhile, can store music, and play the one game I play on phones to kill time. Don't give much of a fuck about cameras or fingerprint bullshittery or facial waste of space, etc.Anything else out there fit the bill? Feels like most thinks are loaded with crap or are giant or have the wonderful Apple pioneered notch of stupidity.
hey fags, I was wondering if there is an existing application (that doesn't require root) that would allow me to encrypt my SD card and actively decrypt it everytime I wanted to use it.want to just chuck my porn on it since I'm sick of being concerned to open the gallery or a file manager in public.
>>71850961I think there are some apps for just locking a folder with a password that generally hides things out of the gallery. Keepsafe may work for you, can't remember if its the one I tried but the description sounds about right.
>>71850961>>71851065Hide It Pro on the Play Storeit hides itself with 3 different camos and you have to press a specific spot to access the folder then have to enter the password/PIN/FP
>>71850920my g6+ is pretty good. battery is a bit small at 3200mah but lasts a long time as long as you don't run it at full brightness.>no notch>expandable storage>bootloader unlock>price isn't bad>excellent camera>2160x1080 screen
>>71851104Im about to buy the MI9T, is the MiA3 better? or is it a cheap standard phone?
>>71851175>betterwell that's subjective, if you think having a headphone jack or expandable storage is important or maybe having a stock Android experience is what you're comfortable with then i would suggest the Mi A3if none of that appeals to you, and you like the idea of a bezeless/notchless screen with a pop-up selfie camera, then the Mi 9T would be more up your alleythe hardware is about the same minus the exceptions listed above
>>71851104US and Verizon (they aren't so impossible to activate gsm only phones on now I know Oneplus, Razer, and I think Oppo all work offhand)Sorry made the Huawei mention with out specifying that is why I wasn't going ahead with them because who the hell knows whats going to happen there. Sucks I rather like their phones, decent balance of basic smartphone features and not a price stacked high for nonsense nobody uses two weeks later
>>71851133Yea I was honestly thinking of just going with the G series again. Think moto g7 is out now. Screen on the G4 was a little dull on colors was my only real gripe about it, but to its credit I did keep brightness kinda low and some panels just don't do well with that.
I'm not an audiofool but I feel like I lose audio quality with the USB-C - mini jack adapter... Is it only in my head ?
Any nice phones not plagued by google and possibly no front camera either?I'm not one of those "da joos!" guys but I'm getting annoyed by google's nannying and prying + I never ever ever take selfies my budget is about 500 USD
>>71851381now here me out, if you're looking for something that that marks all the boxes in your original post, i suggeat you check out pic related>supports VZW LTE bands>headphone jack>expandable storage>5150mAh battery>Helio P60 = SD660 Look it up>$199.99 on eBay right nowand its development community has been growing
>>71851965also to clarify the lack of front camera isn't really a necessity, would be a cool upside though
>>71851965mi 9t, or wait a little and see if mi 9t pro ever drops. or splurge and go for a oneplus 7 pro
>>71850434not for me, never take selfies just use front camera to check if something stuck in teeth, so would rather not have notch
>at least 4000mha battery>no notch>no round corners screen, not curvy>fast>decent back camera with Gcam>LCD or Oled screen don't care >hp jack>stock android Does this gem exist ?
>>71852759Asus Zenphone Max Pro M1
>>71851965Just put some electrical tape or paint over the selfie camera.
Anyone with Oneplus experience? How long does Oneplus generally keep their phones updated? Do they still update the OP5 or will I need to flash a rom for the latest meme?
>>71851965Asus Zenfone 6 if they ever decide to officially launch the device
As a burger, I just got access to the Xperia 1 today. It took a bit to adjust because there's some changes from the Xperia 10 plus, but I really love it so far. Its going to perform poorly because>Other phones at the same price point have better cameras and/or batteries>It's not offered through US carries, so you just have to buy it outright instead of building it into your phone bill>The next billion Sony phones have all leaked and are seemingly coming out soon enough to encourage people to waitWhich is a fucking shame because it's a genuinely fun piece of tech. I guess that's the thing though, it's a luxury and a bit of a gimmick over a sensible value. Got the pre-order headphones for maximum luxury.
>>71851999Seems almost too good. Looks like it has a notch though but almost forgivable at that price point. I think it would drive me nuts after awhile though.
>>71853318nah man, you can hide the notch in the settings, you wont even notice it
>>71842380Is it IP certified?
>>71853399I don't knowI got pissed with all the fake leaks so I will wait for the official specsIt's been a shitshow today of pajeet baits
>>71846373Either of the 2 suggestions but get a GCam mod.
>>71853399There has never been an IP certified Xiaomi phone. Which is weird to me because pajeets get a lot of rain so shouldn't IP rating be really important to them?
>>71853552Intelligent people don't let their phones get wet in the first place.
I hope the upcoming small iphone causes xiaomi to make a smaller option as well. currently using the mi9se but even that feels annoyingly large compared to earlier iphones. just want something small with decent hardware
>>71853427i wish xiaomi would just release the fucking specs already. i'd have the biggest let down of all time if they make this god-tier budget phone that doesn't have even bands 2 or 4
What did my xiaomeme mean by this ?They really need to get their shit together with the language localisation.

Finally i have the mi9 t on my hands but, if i enable Always On Display it doesnt turn off while in my pocket, or put my hand over the phone.Am i missing something?
>>71854007I take pictures at the beach but I don't fucking bring my phone into the water like a retarded asshat
>>71854333That's the point, you don't bring your phone on the water because you can't. How fucking dense are you?
>>71854460Except that 99% of "water resistant" phones are not certified for saltwater at the beach, pressurized streams of water from a waterfall, or chlorinated water from a pool. The only thing the water resistance is good for is a splash of rain, a spilled cup of water or a drop in the (detergent-less) sink
>>71854496>I'll just pull these bullshit facts out of my ass thinking that people here don't have experience like I doYeah, that's you.

>>71854710Did you even read the article or did you just quickly pick something from google with a headline that somewhat relates to your bullshit? The point of the article is that phones lose their their capacity for water proofing over time and abuse, which if fucking true for any other component of the phone. No fucking shit right there Sherlock.
>>71854782which is true**
>>71853299>doesn't mention the biggest flawimagine running a 4K display on a sub-3500mah battery.
>>71854782Just get a rugged waterproof shitphone if your life revolves around dunking phones in seas and waterfalls, god what a total faggot.
>>71854813Sony are such cheap fucks with the battery capacity on their line up, it's been forever.
>>71854782You sound butthurt
>>71854825>>71854836Have sex nerds. You don't need your life to revolve around one thing to have a feature for it. Just accept the fact that your memephones are cost cutting.
>>71854853So, how many "totally waterproof phones man" have you destroyed then?
>>71854853Nice shitpost. Why would anyone need to bring their phones underwater lol, you'd use a proper waterproof camera for that.
>>71854872None, just because I want waterproofing doesn't mean I'll actually leave it for hours under the water. My S8 is still alive and just to clarify, I don't have anything against phones that aren't IP certified but to say a feature that is commonly found in other phones isn't important just because of your personal circumstance.. is retarded.>>71854938>hurr durr just bring another gadget>hurr shit batter life? just bring a powerbank>hurr no headphone port? just bring adongleThis is you.
>2 year old $200 Huawei Mate SE is IP 67 certified>Almost all current $500 mid-tier options have zero water resistanceWhy is this the world we live in?
Thanks to whomever recommended me the redmi note 4 I really like it. Will probably upgrade it to another Xiaomi in a few years. Hope some better themes come out by then
>>71839908That's like every Samsung/Lenovo/LG cheap phone problem.
>>71855189>Why is this the world we live in?I don't know, but clearly not in the world of scuba divers. I mean, of all things to exclude and complain about - water resistance is fine, because it isn't exactly trivial to implement.

What phone should I get for my father?It should have bottom buttons (preferably physical), good battery and non shit screen (he browses internet on it)Was thinking of some xiaomi model, but not sure which one$200-300 would be enough, right? EU, btw

>>71850311Late response but I think that has limited functionality. I wouldn't grab it based on whether the camera would get better or any further custom ROM development, but rather check what works right now. Basically if you're not happy with the stock experience of current samsung phones (android pie with one ui) I would say either wait or grab something else. It's ok in specs but exynos seems to be a pain to develop for.
>>71855049No phone ever made can work underwater unless it's a specially made rugged one, don't be an aspie, it's water we're talking about.

Question for OP7P owners, how does the front camera work if you're recording a video from the rear camera and then switch to the front? Is there a delay or does the front camera stay popped up? For example I sometimes dick around while recording something and then quickly switch to front cam for my reaction/dumb face or whatever. Also almond or nebula blue

>>71856364It's a refresh of the old ass 660. Sure it still works fine but if you're paying more than 200€ or so for it you're getting ripped off.
>>71856364i would love to have a SD710 for light gaming from time to time with the sAMOLED display. why downgrade the CPU? to save like 10 bucks? nah i want the more powerful version.

Is the 3000mah battery on the Mi 8 pro as bad as it sounds?
Why don't you buy the regular OnePlus 7 instead of chimping out for the Mi a3 which is vaporware and won't be as good anyway? Are you too poor for $500?
>>71854043The Mi 9T has the FCC ID 2AFZZ-XMSF10G. As for the model number, the Mi 9T is M1903F10G, the K20 is M1903F10A/T/C and the K20 Pro is M1903F11A/T/C. This one has the Model number M1903F11G, so it's very likely the Mi 9T Pro. Xiaomi getting it certified by FCC means they're planning to launch it in western/global markets (ie. outside China and India)
>>71856415>>71856456>It's a refresh of the old ass 660Yeah, it's just that it supports 48 MP sensors, Vulkan and has a better GPU among other things. I mean, I want a phone for free as well, but come on. It's Xiaomi we're talking about. If they're the ones ripping people off - I don't know who isn't.
>>71856437>i would love to have a SD710 for light gaming from time to timeYou can play the currently most demanding game on a Snapdragon 660 as well. And that's not a particularly good one either. What more could you possibly need?https://youtu.be/yNprGx-2kbk
>>71856534Yes, that's what a refresh is. The 660 successors are the 670 and the 675, with the 710 being another viable option. If you think getting nearly identical performance at a nearly identical price 2 years after the 660 launched is not a ripoff I don't know what to tell you.
>>71856562But it's not the latest SoC! I want the latest tech!
>>71856613Again:>I mean, I want a phone for free as well, but come on. It's Xiaomi we're talking about.

>>71856638You can repeat yourself all you want, it doesn't change the fact it's bad value. Fuck, you don't even have to look away from your beloved Xiaomi to realize that. The Note 7 Pro belongs to their cheapo brand according to them and it comes with a 675.
>>71856722Just buy whatever phone you want. Even an sd636 phone is fast enough for daily use. Only gaymers care about the latest tech
>>71856722>it doesn't change the fact it's bad value.What is bad value? We don't even know the actual pricing yet.>Fuck, you don't even have to look away from your beloved Xiaomi to realize that.I don't care about or really love any company. But if you've found someone who offers better value for money than Xiaomi then shoot. I don't think it's possible at this point, but let's hear it.
>>71856761>What is bad value? We don't even know the actual pricing yet.We know the Mi A2 launched at 250€ and the Mi A3 will presumably be around that.>I don't care about or really love any company. But if you've found someone who offers better value for money than Xiaomi then shoot. I don't think it's possible at this point, but let's hear it.I don't think all Xiaomi phones are bad value, the opposite really, I think the CC9e/Mi A3 in particular is. The Note 7 goes for a hundred euros less and will give you identical performance. The ancient Pocophone will run circles around it if you're willing the give up the AMOLED screen. If we're talking phones not released in the west the Note 7 Pro, the Realme 3 Pro and X, and even the "normal" CC9 are a much better deal. The CC9e/Mi A3 makes sense if you care about the camera and nothing else.
>>71856931>The CC9e/Mi A3 makes sense if you care about the camera and nothing else.No, it makes sense because of the AMOLED display, a micro SD card slot, a headphone jack and a 4000 mAh battery - all of which the Mi A2 didn't have.

>>71857984Just fuck off with this bullshit.The SoC one generation older than it can run the currently most demanding mobile game. Done. The 625 was nowhere near that at any point.
The A3 looks like a fucking chink brick with all that glossy shit and thicknessBlack mate cover, I guessI could go with the white one, though
