Superior phone coming through
Just got a Poco X3 NFC, what are some good games that i can play to kill time while I take a 12 hour flight?
Should I get a UMI Plus E 6GB for 100$? it runs on Android 6.1Will it run better on older Android with those specs?On a completely different order of events what's the phone with the largest battery, but also the most optimized software/cool temperature?
>>79667486100 bucks for that ancient chink piece of garbage, you must be out of your mind
>>79667538But muh 6GB RAM
Bezelless phones are the dumbest memes
Fuck. Why is Samsung becoming shittier every year? They're not even just the same level of shit, it's progressively worse every year.
>>79667797By bezelless do you mean Samsung's curved display memery? It looks like they realized how retarded that was and went back to flat displays. I can't believe anyone would buy a phone that can't even use a tempered glass screen protector.
>>79667141would buy if there were a compact version
Best Adblock for android? Haven’t used Android since my HTC wildfire. It’s pretty jarring compared to the Lumia 800 I’ve used for 7 years.
Was just about to switch my plan over to Mint mobile from Google Fi when I just found out about Hello mobile, which is even cheaper than Mint somehow. Anybody here have any experience with Hello? $25 a month for unlimited, seems a little too good to be true.
>>79668034There are protectors for curved screens though.
>>79667268Alto's Adventure and Odyssey. Adventure has better atmosphere but Odyssey has better powerups and more mechanics and it's vibe is still relaxing. I also play point and click adventure games like Broken Sword and Thimbleweed Park. Figuring the puzzles yourself takes a while but is enjoyable.
>>79668687Those protectors are either plastic film, or extremely low quality and only have adhesion at the edges. Anything but a completely flat glass screen protector is garbage.
>>79668815Or they cut off the view from the edges.
redpill me on the oneplus nord n10 5g
i am aboutt to buy an iphone 5s for $80 on amazon>all the refurbished se's have shot batteries according to reviewsis there still no android phone for less than $125>ive had 5 motoG2's. theyre too slow on google maps, and in-browser maps. is that still the only small/cheap andoid option?>all the refurbished pixel 4's for under $150 have shot batteries according to the online reviewsI have five iphone 5s and all the charger ports are bust and wont charge. would i get a bulk discount if i sent them all into a repairshop at once?
>>79668861Yeah, some do that too. There's really only one choice of screen protectors for curved screen phones, and it's the plastic film based ones, which I hate. I went from a Samsung S7 edge to a Moto G Stylus, and honestly, being able to use a decent case and a flat screen protector more than make up for any downgrades in specs or lost functionality. I can live without NFC or wireless charging now that I can actually grip my phone comfortably without touching the screen, and don't have to worry about my keys in my pocket peeling the screen protector. Curved screens are one of the worst meme fads, far worse than the notch, hole-punch camera, or super tall aspect ratios.
Xiaomi MI 11 PRO when?
Opinions on Galaxy S10 Lite? I currently have a Galaxy J3 2018 but I need to replace it.
>>79667062For the last several years, my only splurge of the year on myself comes around my birthday when I upgrade to the newest in the Note series. I'm posting from my Note 20 ultra and I don't have any complaints with it. I'm thinking of mixing it up this year and getting a Fold 3 instead. Does any anon around here carry a fold series phone? I can search for reviews but it's hard to know what out there has been paid for or not
>>79667486You can get a poco M3 and flush some clean rom, it's got 6000 mAh
Is buying phones from a third party, such as on ebay, unsafe? I bought a new phone from eBay but was thinking about the possibility that anything could've been done to it and then resealed.
>>79670779Ebay coddles buyers even when the seller is completely in the right so you'll be safe if they pull any shit on you. Best to take video of you unboxing, turning on etc. the phone anyways to remove all doubtsAmazon refurbs tend to be good if reviews are any indication.
Any Samsung note people here?I had an specific application with a plus it its name. It extended edge bar functionalities. I remember you could add contacts, even watch stocks information. But I forgot app name. Could any one of you help me out remember?
>>79671086I'm talking about the phone being tampered with, key logger etc.
>>79670609Got it for a year now and it's great. Especially if you live in exynos country like me.
>>79671116One Hand Operation+ or something
>>79671156I'm in US so I would have Snapdragon. Is that something I should worry about? Sorry, I'm not a smartphone guy.
Just got my S20 FE 5g up and running, man oh man it's so good after dealing with that pos A10e I had for a while.being able to tab out of apps in other apps and still have the other app ready for me where I left it when I come back is life-changing
>>79667062Pixel 4a with GrapheneOS or some xiaomeme with Lineage? I have a Poco F1 and don't really need to upgrade, but my dad's phone is pretty beat up and he will take mine. I want to debotnet slowly (and build my own services, self hosted)
>>79667062I can't narrow down what to buy for my next phone that I desperately need. I'm using my backup iPhone 6 and I would really like to keep that same form factor, possibly go a little larger, but nothing like a s20+, its way too big. I was looking at some chink phones and it seems like the 5g isn't compatible with a lot of carriers in the U.S. Someone recommend me something that is more updated than an iPhone 6 but still has the relative size, 5g would be a plus. I'm on Tmobile, if that matters.
What are some good open source ROMs for Samsung galaxy s7?
Xperia 5 II reporting in AKA the chaddest of phones in 2020. 120hz OLED Notchless MicroSD AUX goodness. Using my gf's Iphone XR feels like watching a flipshow. Scrolling Kuroba with true blacks and 120hz right now and my dick could not be harder ngl. Everyone ITT pretending 120hz is nithing different from their 60hz poorphone is jelly and mad and cries like a little girl "that he just doesnt see it" or he "just doesn't want it" or its "draining his battery" - guess what my 4000mAh Battery is LOADED (set to only 80% overnight charging) and can handle full day 120hz just fine
>>79667268Door KickersThere's also a mobile port for at least one of the newer Shadowrun RPGsGTA SA
>>79671537what are your display and font sizes set to
>>79671537That sound vibration thing is a gimmick though.Coming from SGS note 9 smoothest phone I have ever had.Very comfy to hold in hand too.But I still wonder, was it really worth it 700€ when you could buy Poco X3 with 120hz screen for 250€???
>>79671537Too bad about no wireless charging though. I was looking at the 1 2 but my current phone is only 3 years old and still works pretty well.
any compact phone options other than the 12 mini and the s10e? or should i JustWait™ until phone makers create other compact phones?
Are the Samsung brand cases for the S20's the best case I can get if I don't want a bulky case that ruins the screen curves? The edges on the side seem more low profile in videos but I can't tell for sure.
>>79667970Because they're desperately trying to be Apple and failing at it. They have the means to be great but they choose to do the dumbest shit.
>>79671671Eh went ahead and grabbed it since they're on sale.
>>79667062Why did the Z Flip, flop? I really like the phone its so good.
>>79669236>https://slickdeals.net/deals/smartphone/do they have amazing buyer protection like amazon? do they not sell shit phones that need to be returned half of the time, like amazon?
why am I so autistic about this? I never leave my house
>>79671624you again, just use the regular settings what is wrong with your eyes?>>79671641the vibration thing is a gimmick, yes, but it still has stereo front facing speakers that make me really consider not using headphones at all when watching stuff at home in bed. For the Poco, that is still a garbage SoC compared to the 865
>>79668034Nah but fuck that meme too
iPhone SE 2020?
Has anyone else had issues with phone calls since upgrading to Android 11? They drop out constantly and won't reconnect until I restart the phone. Seems like a pretty fucking big issue but I can only find limited people complaining about it online and none of them offering fixes.
Are there any new ceramic phones? also are there any steel framed android devices?
I'm thinking about installing /e/ OS. It's basically a LeneageOS for MicroG fork focused on privacy and it looks/feels a bit like iOS, which I don't hate personally.It comes with a compilation of open source apps replacing everything you'd expect from a proprietary OS, which is very convenient.
>>79672103Why would you want something as brittle as ceramic used for a phone?
>>79672127its looks and feels cool, plus its highly scratch resistant
>>79672103P40 Pro Plus
>>79672085if poor battery life and low resolution screen is not a problem for you, yes
>>79671537Fellow 5 II chad reporting
>>79671645wireless charging fucks up the battery, wouldnt use it regardless
>>79671213Nothing to worry about. It's just that even the EU got the good snapdragon version.It's a big beautiful phone with great battery life, solid specs and a good camera.Anyhting else you'd like to know?
>>79671537Is the 120hz fixed or does it change automatically as needed? I heard there was an option to simulate 240hz or something
>>79667970>>79671719So fucking sad they used to be the anti-Apple, everything Apple did that was shit Samsung did the opposite until they found out it's more profitable to just make overpriced and underspec'd phones and try and make an ecosystem to lock the consoomer into it.
>>79667062>Rugged cases look almost as bad as RGB computersDo "wallet" cases provide any sort of protection? Do they overheat phone?I'm a cat owner, I'm not planning to drop it, but my cat loves to check how things do fall down from desk. What are the cues to tell if a case is protective enough?
>>79667062Is OLED bad for reading? I hear a lot about PWM in reviews and don't know how much to be worried about it. I've always had LCD in the past. I use my phone for reading on the go a lot so eye strain is a deal breaker. I've tried OLED in stores but that doesn't really reflect long term usage.
best custom rom for S10?
>>79673428Nope. I get eye strain from my LCD pc monitor but never my Oled phone. Black themes makes my eyes feel so good using Amoled.Only a very small percentage of people get eye strain from Oled. Get a phone with DC dimming function build in if you really think you are in that 1% minority.
>>79673428>Is OLED bad for reading?reading what? books?it all depends on panel and softwaredxomark tested few oldes and they have readability scoreoled is much better to browse 4chin/web with dark mode, because there is no backlight
Spigen liquid air or Rugged armour? My phone is so thin I need some bulk and grip so I can hold onto it better but not too much bulk either. Will the air even provide protection? Should I find something else?
>>79673535>>79673539Books, yes. I haven't tried using a black theme on OLED, but I hate black themes on LCD; is it really a big difference when reading? >it all depends on panelAny particular recommendations? This is my first time seriously looking into OLED.
>>79671213Snapdragon version is a bit better, consumes less battery than exynos and (i think) is a little faster
>>79673635https://www.dxomark.com/sony-xperia-5-ii-display-review-holding-the-middle-ground/check this reviewthey are compering 4 different models with oleds, you can see they are quite different from each other
>>79673744Its worth noting that default settings vs tweaked screen on xperia produces quite different results
>>79667062never used a samsung phone, are the phone, messages etc. apps all samsung apps by default or can you choose not to your use their versions?
iPhone SE (2020) or Google Pixel 4aWhich do you choose? Or is there a better alternative?
>>79674250I just got my 4a 5g. I like it. I like how easy it is to load pirated apps and the overall size.
>>79674250iPhone XR is a bit better than the SE as far as premium look and feel.
>>79673635Yes it's night and day difference. Specially at the evening hours
>>79674407>720p IPS LCD display on a 6.1" diagonal>unsightly notch you can't hide >premium look and feel
Which color is best?
i'm leaning towards the navy blue 12 but i think there's a chance i'll pick black when they're right in front of me.
>>79675068>caring about what color the phone back is when your case covers it upYou should be asking what color case you should get rather than something you will never see after you stuff the phone in a case
>>79671719Google made the same mistake.
>>79675114*transparent phone cases in your path*
Is there a way to block this shit? Their hardware is fantastic and One UI has lots of features that are sorely missing in stock Android but this would drive me absolutely bonkers.hard mode: no VPN "solutions" like Blokada Plus
Are the IPS panels on Redmi Note 8 or 9S good enough? I want to get a little better phone other than my basic samsung A20 but damn does it have a nice AMOLED...Also this Samsung is rebooting by itself almost everytime I plug the cable in. Only happens after the last software update, which I inmediately did a factory reset afterwards... Hardware fault maybe? I think it is the software since it is too much of a coincidence
>>79675068Blue looks the nicest but I've seen people say it doesn't look quite as nice irl as it does in photos
>>79675336Blue doesn't do a lot for me.It would be between Graphite & Silver (pure white). But I've heard people say the Silver looks "cheap" and you can't see the Apple logo.
>>79675291>Is there a way to block this shit? >NO YOU CAN'T
>>79667141Is this decent? Was thinking of getting one.
>>79675068blue has really nice mate frame
https://f150mobile.com/pages/b2021This looks pretty cool.
>>79675566All Pro models have stainless steel frame.Regular 12 has matte frame.

Shit y'all niggas even got sd cards?
Any recommendations for a good phone under 200$? I'm looking for something that will last and not got to shit after 2 years. I'm not planning on playing games on it.
>>79672398How poor is the battery life?
>>79671537that's nice anonymous but I can't afford it.I could get a 5440*1440 144hz computer monitor for that much money, or a steelcase leap, or I could finally get the chinks to prototype my keyboard case for me. Or how about Chinese food and opana? You have any idea how much Chinese food and opana you can get for that sort of money?

>>79675291I think Blokada can now work without a local VPN.
>>79672618you can enable 240hz in game mode, where it fills in black screens in between frames. Also it has up to 240hz touch sampling I think. In the system settings you can only chose between 60 and 120hz. 120hz may be adaptive, but I'm not sure. Never seemed to lag ever.

opinions on the realme 7?
What should I look for in screen protectors? Why are some expensive and some aren't?
is there a sub 200 dollar android phone that's also sub 6.2 inches? do they exist? I couldn't find one
>>79677487I fucking hope so. The Pixel 4 got a huge price drop around this time of the year.What would be an acceptable price for the Pixel 5?
>>79677143Xbut check screen, it should be fine for 2-3 years
>>79678048Tempered glass is the only one that protects your screen against drops and impacts and it’s the most expensive type. The rest just make it a bit more scratch resistant.
>>79667062I have an iphone 7 plus with 254gb space, should i even bother?

torn between a few devices >New Note 20U for $1199.99 Really like the camera and expandable storage, not really liking the idea of having another glass brick in my pocket >New Z flip 5G for $1280.331080p screen turns me off slightly, but being able to fold into a more compact form seems cool>Used Z Fold for $1300-1500The price tag even for a used model turns me off a bit, but this device seems like the best of both nz flip and the N20U Which one should I pick up /g/?
>>79679440With an iPhone, you can use your laptop to take calls, send + receive SMS/iMessages, share browser tabs, etc. without having to install any additional software. I like those features. But maybe I'm overlooking killer Android features that you'd miss.
>>79679590That's pretty convenient.
>>79679440The ecosystem creates an extension of products so each product compliments the other with handing off work/play from one to the other. Apple did well with their continuity concept. If you do alot of work and deal with documents, iCloud is amazing. Its simple, fast and clean.
>>79676535Xperia 5 II

if I have a xiaomi phone should I give up and install tiktok and just let the chinese have complete access to everything me? like I mean easier access they already have everything from xiaomi.
>>79680558why make it easy for them?
>>79680558If you just need to use it, use App Warden to remove trackers from it and maybe try using it inside Cloak (I'm not sure what the app is called, but it sandoxes social media apps using the work profile).
>>79679398And how many hundreds of dollars are they charging for what I could have done with a $50 SD card?
>>79669160Not soon enough after seeing the BS Samsung is pulling. (lets get rid of micro sd, chargers, headphone jacks... and just copy iphone from now on)

wow phones got bigi'm considering the moto g9 play. if you have it, are you happy with it and also was it difficult getting used to the huge size?
>>79683115He is talking about the lag and the shitty ram management probably. I had lots of miui phones and they all had lag issues even with MIUI 12. You have to factory reset so fucking often because of how many bugs new updates introduces. Fuck Miui...
>>79682893miui 11 was perfectly fine on my device, but miui 12 (just updated) feels slow, i really shouldn't have updated this time.

>>79671537how can it be chaddest if there are no roms
What's the deal with tempered glass screen protectors? 1/5 of the reviews on amazon say they don't stick perfectly, especially at the edges, or that they can't get rid of some bubbles. I thought they were just retards who couldn't follow the proper proceudre, but some of these review seem written by people who know what they are talking about
>>79683684They're finicky, they either go on perfectly or they don't with no real in-between. You about need the room hermetically sealed to avoid any dust magically finding itself on the screen you just press-cleaned after you've put the protector on.
>>79683463Because you need to factory reset. You need to factory reset Xiaomi MIUI phones 5 times a year to stay stable and fast. Yes miui is a mess. It only looks and functions nicely at first.
>>79683543Did it release yet? Is there a phone that can demonstrate there won't be the same throttling and battery drain issues? No? That's what I thought.
>>79677143>ishit>last a good whilefucking kek
>>79683829But you would think if the package includes 3, then at least one will go well, yet the reviews are either total failure of 3 in a row or perfect fit on the first try, I really don't get it. I guess the right thing is to buy them and wish for the best?

>>79688463Pixel 5 would be the obvious choice no?
>>79685910people dont care they will just use whatever comes in the box and when that eventually breaks or get lost they will used other methods of charging the thing like dollar store cables and adapters.
>>79675675I've got a motoZ3 for over 2 years now and I have to say it's been a great phone. My only gripes with it were the lack of a headphone jack, and the bootloader is locked by the carrier. I've thought about getting a new phone but idk what I'd even want, the battery is still good so I'll probably just stick with the z3 for a while longer.
>>79675675I have one of these. It is okay. Although fast charging fucks the battery after a bit I think.
>>79683205Cheapest phone with those specs would be Razer Phone 2, you can find them used/refurbished for 200-300 bucks.

>>79682893>MIUI is slow and buggyit feels like you're just parroting what you hear on the internet without ever trying a flagship with MIUIit isn't slow or buggy, feels just fine like every other phone does>it doesn't have dex or a pensorry but genuinely, that is such a niche userbase
So it seems that Net10 has started explicitly blocking tethering rather than just saying it's not allowed. What's a good AT&T MVNO that I can tether through? Right now I'm paying $20/mo for 2GB then 56k
I'm almost sold on the Huawey P smart S, but I need some apps available only on PS.There's a way to reliably install apps from Google?
>>79689973thanks.I heard thre are some firmware problems with this method, you think that if this becomes my case I will be able to find some workarounds?I don't wanna blow 180 eurobucks on a phone on which my banking apps won't work
>>79685910Well yes because not everyone is near a wall socket all the time. And not everyone wanna carry around a power bank
I just noticed a small streak on the edge of my IPS screen that's lighter than the rest of the screen. About an inch long, horizontal.It's only really noticeable on dark gray for some reason. It's definitely not a scratch, and I've never dropped it.Unfortunately, I don't have a camera good enough to get a clear picture of it. It's pretty minor, but I'm wondering if anyone has encountered this before?
>>79683005the note 9 is still better
>>79690337How is the Note 9 better? Because Linus says so? Yikes
haven't used a Samsung phone in ages, they're gonna shit the bed with the S21 line right?Ideally if it's good i'd want the smallest one but i'd probably be gimping myself battery wise
>>79688884I have the Moto Z3 Play, which I got after retiring my original Z Play.It's a good phone, but the removal of the headphone jack and noticeably worse and smaller battery compared to the original Z Play was a bad move.I have since upgraded to a Motorola Edge which I copped for $500. I really love this phone outside of the curved glass screen and plastic back which is prone to scratches. The Edge is probably my second favorite phone ever, just behind the first gen Moto Z Play.
>>79690376cheaper, same shit and no punch hole.note 10 is good, but honestly what did it do to edge out the 9?
>>79690426Hole punch is better, it will get updates for longer, Bigger battery, less s-pen latency, 12gb ram, much better processor, Gorilla glass 6. Actually the only downside in comparison to the Note 9 is the lack of headphone jack
>>79690464>Hole punch is bettersubjective, but I found it too annoying>Bigger batteryIs this really an issue for anyone anymore?>ram & processorfor what? games? not really an issue for methe rest is obviously trueThe note 10 is objectively an upgrade, but is it really worth it for the price?you can scoop up a nice note 9 for dirt cheap.
>>79675728really not awful, but charge daily to keep battery healthy, if you're a gamer more than a few mins a day or have 2+ hour movie watching sessions look elsewhere, the screen is fine, sharp w good colors
For anybody seeking advice in this thread and others, take anything any one of these retards says with a grain of salt. With how much everyone admonishes iphones, you'd think they were extremely overpriced pieces of trash. I tried out an se in a store and was amazed that such a polished, smooth experience could be had on a smartphone. For most users, this would be more than enough. Ignore what all the retards say about installing roms, side loading and all that nonsense. I used to do that stuff but no more. I have a life and being autistically obsessed with all that stuff won't get you anywhere. It's much akin to the linux fags who toil for hours upon hours just to have a barely functioning os to play in a terminal with. Any self respecting individual wouldn't bother with it. At the same time, any self respecting individual wouldn't just blindly follow the crowd just for the sake of it. Be more than what these shitheads are feeding you with.
>>79690988>750x1334 in 2021Oh no no no...
>>79690988As an iPhone user I sometimes get the itch to switch to Android so I can ‘rice’ things. After using it for 7+ years it gets a bit boring. The good thing is their devices usually lasts a very long time.For lower end Apple is still jew pricing though. Upper end is in line with other manufacturers so no arguments to be made there, but my advice to people is always to buy 1 generation behind for Apple devices to save money since the average resale price drops 20% a year.
>>79672622This is why I switched from Samsung to Apple. Might as well get something good and that gets OS updates.
>>79690988its because those retards never had iphone, they always praise chinkshit for 200$ because thats the only think they can buy, just to switch phone next year for another 200$ chinkshit>LOOK AT THIS CHINK BRICK WITH 420HZ AND 6900mAh battery that lags straight from box
Redpill me on the Motorola G9 Play 64GB
Thought people said Samsung shit drops in price instantly after it's released.Still only see Samsung Tab S7 at their original price here.
>>79690988Why would any self respecting individual be shilling for Apple and still defend after all the anti-customer bullshit they've pulled and continue pulling?Also imagine being mad at people telling you not to spend more money than you realistically need to.
>>79691406Here's what your Tim Cook says about that:https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/sep/12/tim-cook-apple-ceo-products-arent-for-the-rich-steve-jobs-iphone-x-smartphone-1000-dollarNot sure why anyone would give a shit about any of this, but there you go.>>LOOK AT THIS CHINK BRICK WITH 420HZ AND 6900mAh battery that lags straight from boxOh, about lag.https://appleinsider.com/articles/20/10/07/new-class-action-suit-resurrects-iphone-throttling-controversyhttps://www.zdnet.com/article/iphone-x-gets-speed-throttling-months-after-apple-said-it-probably-doesnt-need-it/https://youtu.be/0-6GQbqrSVEhttps://youtu.be/LacqG2OuMjg
>>79667062>phone has new faster charging that requires a new brick to take advantage of>don't include it in the boxThere is no justification for this. Apple can do it because they never improve their charging.
>>79691210>Might as well get something goodIt's not exactly wise to spend that much for a phone from either of the two companies, but you're still getting more for the money if you go with Samsung flagships. High refresh rate displays, crazy zoom cameras, generally better battery life, expandable memory, faster charging, etc. >and that gets OS updatesEnjoy your throttling "update" in a year..
>>79691930>Apple can do it because they never improve their charging.they did, they have 20W fast charger
My Xperia XZ2 Compact has touch screen issues and I've had it for like 2+ years.What phone of similar size would /g/ recommend? I'm in the UK.
>>79691942>Samsung flagshipsenjoy ads in basic apps on phone that you payed 1000$+
>>79691590consdering its moto its probably gonna be pretty good, for that price point it's got pretty good performance, it is huge and has a 720p screen which isn't great but the upside to that is it's gonna stay smooth forever cause it has fewer pixels to push around the screen compared to how other midend phones will come with FHD+ screens but with worse hardware
>>79692052none. maybe try fixing it
>>79690908had a smartphone since the lord motorola q9c and this is the first time I realized that people watch video on them that isn't webbum
>>79692191>>Samsung flagships>enjoy ads in basic apps on phone that you payed 1000$+I don't have to, I'm not retarded enough to spend that much on any phone and I can install Blokada too.
>>79691167Adaway+minminguardKurobaJamesdsp system wide convolver eqfor me these things are utterly non negotiable
I managed to scratch in 2 weeks of use, a screen that's supposed to be gorilla glass 5, just by keeping it in my pocket. It wasn't even the same pocket where my keys are or anything like that. Isn't this shit supposed to be hard to scratch?
>>79692453>KurobaiChan>Adaway+minminguardthere is Adaway for safari and there is Blokada
>>79692191>>79691942If all I do is text, web surf, some light mobile RuneScape playing and take pictures. Do I go for the new Samsung being launched today or the iPhone. I don't even know which model, they all seem the same.
>>79692927Since when does apple allow 4chan apps on the app store? or side loading them?adaway and minminguard are system wide adblocking with cosmetic filtering.System wide eq isn't any less important than those previous two either. I can see if you just use Facebook or whatever though. My phone's purpose is 4chan, music, and some little shit like email, alarm clock.
>>79692967Also which has better security? I might link my MetaMask wallet to my phone.
>>79692967wait for samshit new phones and then decidei would go for iphone especially if you want to keep your phone for more than 2 years
>>79692980Samsung is more secure.iOS vulnerabilities are sold online for cheaper because there's so many of them.
>>79692977you have to sideload iChan, no problemblokada is system wide block, adaway blocks only shit in safari
>>79667062Fuck I can't wait to consume this new samsung!!!
>>79692651Gorilla glass is hard to shatter and crack, scratching is another matter entirely. Glass has limitations and you either get shatter/crack-resistant or scratch-resistant, not both, and Gorilla Glass 5 is the former. Buy a screen protector.
>>79693080No basic accessories or peripherals? I'M CONSOOOMING!!!
>>79692651It's still glass. If it comes into contact with something harder than it, like metal, it will scratch. That being said I've been using a phone with gorilla glass 4 with no screen protector for over two years and it doesn't have a single scratch. Be more careful.
>>79693266>Buy a screen protector.I just did today. First time I applied it about 1 mm off so I peeled it back a bit when it was semi-adhered, and adjusted the position. Now bubbles keep coming back at the sides, 15$ down the drain I suppose.
>>79671131>tampered with, key logger etc.by who?
>>79675675>chink engineeringso copying better ideas by finding shittier, lazier ways to do it. No wonder the g5 looked and performed like garbage
I want the best gaming phone with the lowest price. I don't care about anything other than it having the best processor and having a big enough screen (6-7 inches). What phone is the phone for me?
>>79693713Seems to be working fine as I type this over three years later
bros I'm thinking about selling my Galaxy S10+ and buying a PinePhone/Librem phone/a regular ass flip phone but I'm not sure if the contract is up yet. would that be an issue?
>>79690416>It's a good phone>no headphone jack>smaller battery>good phonek
>>79693041android is more secure Samshit and security don’t belong in the same sentence. Their own monthly release notes mention dozens of vulnerabilities in their firmware separate from AOSP. They’re good at patching holes quickly but the monkey devs just keep making more.
>>79693766>but muh knox
>>79693766Those vulnerabilities aren't big. Meanwhile iPhone every other month gets one critical vulnerability and gets jailbroken.
>>79693815Go shill your gook garbage in the other thread, Ranjit
>>79690988>I tried out an se in a store and was amazed that such a polished, smooth experience could be had on a smartphone.You have low standards. I tried out an iPhone SE in the store and felt it was too small and cramped, aged looking with its huge bezels, and the low resolution LCD is painful to look at it next to a proper AMOLED. Nice shillpost though
>>79693766Iphones are literally jailbroken how retarded are you actually
>Black is our boldest color yet
Im in a pickle,i found pixel 4a on ebay new for 350 (i cant find it any other way this price in my country)But i cant decide if it's worth for the money, i always like this little phone but im afraid i will get buyers remorse. Is the screen on sun really bad?
>>79693722>I don't care about anything other than it having the best processorWait for SD888 gaming phones then
>>79694408already confirmed to be shit and just small incremental upgrade from the 865 or 865+ also is gets way hotter
>>79694283with some effort, it's usable under direct sunlight but you won't be happy about it
iPhone 12 or the S21
I ordered a used Android phone off e-bay>Came fully charged>Was not factory reset, but had nobody logged in and wasn't locked>Settings was hidden from the app menu but found it eventuallyDid a factory reset but the only other stickler now is>Location icon is present in top status bar but location is off>Under System, model is just "Phone" but build number matches official websitesI guess second isn't a problem but what is the first indicating? Could it be gestures? Maps for example still demands Location be turned on.
Why would anyone choose a carrier locked phone when the sim free ones are cheaper?
>>79694691S21 for me no contest. If I had to buy Iphone then only the mini. Everything else is just same old iOS and same old Iphone. Some won't even upgrade from 7 or 8 because it's whatever besides the oled screen. Can't even be bothered with 60hz displays anymore either so I'll be getting that S21 and try it out.
Samsung a31 vs a51 vs nokia 7.2 vs xiaomi redmi note 8? Which is the best for custom roms and hardware quality?anti dup
>>79695131None of the above
>Samsung downgraded the charging capabilities of their new phones from 45W to 25W to justify not putting a charger in the boxOH NO NO NO
>>79693795Knox is useless if you flash a custom rom. An efuse gets blown and then knox knows the phone was modified, forever.
>>79694691S21 for me
What's a good emergency phone for 911 calls only? Might also pop in a cheap data SIM card in it for GMaps and Uber.
>>79672622That happened when the ceo became braindead (about 5 years ago), then his soi son led the company. On october 2020, the ceo died and the heirs had to pay billions in inheritance tax. That's why samsung now has ads in its apps.

>>79683443Use a custom stock based rom.
>>79695194it's true, wth>25W max>no charger in the box>no microSD slotSamsung doesn't give a f*ck about competing in those kinda features anymoreIt seems that as long as they're matching (or barely beating) Apple they stop putting in any extra effort
>>79695272Same anon here, probably should clarify that I'd like the phone to be as cheap as possible. It's just going to be staying in my backpack as a 2nd phone in case my main smartphone gets mugged. I don't mind buying second-hand but are there any phones I should consider buying brand new?
>>79695230None of them are Poco X3
There's a very simple solution to the "no charger in the box" problem: when you buy the phone you get the option to have one included for free. If you already have a charger and the phone doesn't come with a newer kind of fast charger, you can just not get one. If it does come with a new one (to you) you can get it for free.One manufacturer is already doing this but I can't remember which one.
>>79695272>What's a good emergency phone for 911 calls only?a $20 dumbphone
Bit the bullet and got an iphone. God im a faggot
>>79695884Did you take the large or xl buttplug?
y ru gaye?
>>79695993>>79695980>>79695979S21 was disappointing. iPhone has better resale value. I'll try again next year
>>79696014That's just like your opinion man.
>>79695585I don't need dual speakers.
>>79696122>tweeter>iphone>all black and tranny models in presentation>blacked color schemeWho the fuck is buying Samsung in the year 2021???
Is the Galaxy Note 9 just dogshit at recording calls or why is call voljme always super low on their end? I have another shitphone that cost me 50 bucks and has a dedicated record call button which is crystal clear at recording calls and has equalized volume. How do I get better call record volume on the note 9 basically?
>>79696148non iToddlers do you shit faced iphone sperg
Looks like I have to choose between Xiaomi 11, S21, S20 FE 5G as replacement phone. All look great but $200 difference is juicy with the S21.
>>79672085If you don't mind a bigger phone the XR is better. Nothing missing on it that the SE has either, it's just better.
>>79696148That happened when the ceo became braindead (about 5 years ago), then his soi son led the company. On october 2020, the ceo died and the heirs had to pay billions in inheritance tax. That's why samsung now has ads in its apps.Samsung is south korea's lifeblood, it generates 1/5 of its gdp.
Fuck it, just bought it, am i in for a lot of dissapointment?
>>79673428Yes, it's bad, but it might be down to personal sensitivity. Personally I found dark mode and/or low brightness on my Samsung with an OLED display to be very tiresome for the eyes, it reminded me of 2000s with shitty CRT displays that strained the eyes similarly despite being a completely different technology.Now I'm using a phone with an LCD display that does not use PWM and it's much easier on my eyes.If your eyes are sensitive then that's something to consider.
>>79696544Not really, it is what it is.
>>79696638i was really attracted to it and i also feel like a simple man (no gaming and heavy stuff)
>>79684351this, plus after literally using it for a minute i dont even notice the notch being there at all, SE bezels on the other hand, especially if you watch videos, are hideous
>>79696544for that price you can't really complain dude I think since you chose it already you'll enjoy it but post update in upcoming threads what you think once you have it curious to know myself
>>79696014>S21 was disappointingYou're still getting more features than on the iPhone you bought. Not that either of the two is even close to worth the amount of money.
>>79696544You played yourselfFor 300 euro you could have gotten the Xperia 10 iiIts a bit slower with its processor but has an oled screen, gorilla glass 6, water/dust resistance and a better battery
>>79696741>oled screendont care i have an oled tablet>gorilla glass 6ok>resistanceok thats the only think im jelly tho
>>79696741>Xperia 10 iithat's a yikes from me man
>>796967414a has oled hdr display
>>79677143x or xr
>>79696786Huh, I actually forgot about that, well, I guess I stand corrected
>>79696544Oofff, the Poco F2 Pro goes for the similar amount of money.
>>79696841actually not true, because id go for that.even so its size was kinda bad for me.anyways it's going for 450euros+ here.
>>79696741>Released 2020, May 05>4gb>Snapdragon 665
>>79696880Strangely enough Poco F2 Pro is selling at a higher price now than it was last autumn, back then it was often on sale for 350-370€, even dropped down to 299€ on Black Friday. You can get a Mi 10T (also with SD865) for around 400€ tho, there's even one for 349€ on eBay right now:https://www.ebay.com/itm/Xiaomi-Mi-10-T-5G-Cosmic-Black-Schwarz-128GB-Android-Smartphone-Handy-LTE-4G/353352049139>new (other)>Customer returns opened without a charging cable

I'm absolutely fucking pissed at Samsung. Been a Note user for close to a fucking decade, and while the writing has been on the wall since the launch of the S10, I think the S21 family is the final nail in the coffin. What a complete fucking shitshow. I miss my Note 9 more and more every fucking day.
>>79696969im at europe , anyway i felt like i had to get away from xiaomeme right now, even though i know it's a great company. I want to know what it's like to be caressed by google.
>>79697016>im at europe the phone I linked is in germany with worldwide shipping, it was just an example of the prices they're going for, it's probably the cheapest SD865 phone now that Poco F2 has gone up in price.
>>79697011What the fuck are you crying about downie? Nothing at todays presentaition was a surprise.
>>79697085Just years of pent up frustration.
Why the fuck was there so little announced at CES?I just want a 90hz+ midranger with a decent battery that isn't a chinese piece of shit with buggy software that have support dropped within a year.
>>79675675have this bad boy too. Has served me very well for almost 4 years. My only gripes are1) 32gb storage only, it starts to get crammed. Luckily there's the microsd slot for my hundreds of gigs of music and video2) for a year now the vibration motor only works some of the time, which is kind of annoying when I set it to vibration mode and then can't feel/hear incoming calls. I haven't tried factory reset, I fear it's a hardware issue though unfortunately.Other than that:-headphone jack-3gb ram-microsd slot up to 512gb cards-decent size, not too large for one hand usage-front facing fingerprint sensor (indispensable for one hand use)Been using it since 2017. If the aforementioned flaws didn't exist, and i were to lose this phone, I would get the same model again, used but in good condition. Name me one new phone that provides all of the above. Especially one-hand-compatible size. There's just no such thing anymore sadly, except niche models with hefty markups (more) in price. Point in case: Samsung Galaxy S10e, one of the few phones I'd consider as replacement in theory. 580€ new in 2021. Moto G5 Plus: ~165€ new on amazon (250€ new back in 2017)How do you run Android 11 on it btw? LineageOs? Is it worth losing the built in Moto gestures?
>>79697066i hear you, i dont disagree that it's an exceptional phone for 350 with sd 865 etc etc, but for once i followed my gut and my heart and bought something out of spite.even though it seems like a pretty ok smartphone
Honestly, fuck smartphonesI have a iphone 11 from work, and I dont understand the fucking hype.It feels like a solid thing, but what the fuck do people even use these things to justify paying so much fucking money????The best thing I ever did with a smartphone was to use a cheap one as a bootloader for laptops, or emulate GBA pokemon firered on it.Fucking consoomer bullshit. Oh and no matter how expensive theres a good chance youre out walking your dog and your phone falls out of your pocket and its fucking over.
>>79697547oh and navigation for android autoI have a cheap xiaomi that I got a few years ago, I wish you could do cool shit with smartphones, but if you actually try to use them as tools like install an altitude app on them, they are just gimmick shit
