I just went from the Flip 3 to the 12 Pro. The iPhone is a thousand times nicer to keep in your pants pocket. Don't be fooled, lads.
>>83388605Another favourite of mine. The keyboard worked surprisingly well given the size.
>>83388615Yep the flip is a dumb gimmick. It's nothing like an old flip phone and just a waste of resources. If they truly wanted people to have a compact useful phone they would make the S21e with 5.7-5.8inch display.
>>83388615Go home, durga
>>83388605Still use this nigga as a music player.
>>83388812Great phone but why? Just use your regular phone as music player
What are these (highlighted in yellow)? Extra features, redundant descriptions, or specific limitations?
>>83389004I'm never going to Android again. The apps are shit quality and have too many bugs.
>>83389027??? That's the biggest cope I ever heard in my lif.. wait it's not. You itoddlers keep coming up with lies as a coping mechanism every single day
>>83388615But why? Apple is so expensive and is logged by even a $200 android.
>>83389121will 200$ android phone have 5 years of software support like 2016 se?
Thoughts on the Asus Zenfone 8?
>>83389147No but it's gonna have modern features and look, as well as a battery that lasts more than 2 hours. You know an actual useful phone even after no more updates
>>83388975it just lists which navigation system signals it can connect to.https://www.septentrio.com/en/about-GNSS/why-multi-frequency-and-multi-constellation-mattershttps://consumer.huawei.com/en/support/content/en-us00687956/
if you disable a shitload of apps with adb, and your phone operates well for over a week with no problems doing anything you want to do, is that evidence enough that i can delete those disabled apps? i ask because i use netguard and decided to try out the realtime notifications on attempts to connect and occasionally see disabled apps trying to connect. now i feel like those disabled apps serve some sort of purpose within my system
>>83389272The apps won't hurt you anon. Remember your meds!!
>>83388975Don't take pocopill
when can we expect hands on of the iphone 13 (mini)? I wanna see the colors before I get to buy one of them.

>>83389329>1 guy out of millions units complainingAnon I..
>>83389121>>83389269this is such a stupid and not true shitpost. Like yeah, there are some features or more ram or whatever on android phones with the same price, but most of the time they are just fully shit or annoying to deal with. My dad is always muh samsung and that thing is incredibly unintuitive. Changed like 3 times the whole design with updates. Some friends of mine, in my early 20's, always were like nah man muh sony muh android. The second he now got a good paying job he got a iphone 11.
>>83389329Sounds like a (You) problem and dirty pin socket although a better choice would be xiaomi/redmi variants.>suddenly shuts downLooks like chang ebay seller took the real battery out and replaced by fake battery. Common occurrence if you don't source your shit directly from xiaomi official store. Also watch out, they kinda use miracle and patch the phones with spyware the reason why xiaomi added a 15-day unlock timer which is to prevent resellers from tampering the global rom with spyware/keylogger system app.Only buy from xiaomi stores.
looking for a mid rangepocco or oneplus
>>83389462First of all the Sony's cost more than an iPhone 11. Second of all most people love some change once in a while. Even I'm tempted to go for an iPhone as my next one just for some change but only if they make sideloading a build in feature.>but most of the time they are just fully shit or annoying to deal with. Straight up coping lies again... Maybe stop buying random unknown brands?>My dad is always muh samsung and that thing is incredibly unintuitive. Changed like 3 times the whole design with updates. The design changed a bit but it's literally the exact same as years ago. If you cry about this then you need to seek help. You stil navigate it the exact same way
>>83389329>3 monthsstill in warranty retardassuming that's quite a recent post either you purchased from unofficial channels or you have a used phone that already broke lol
>think phone is broken>get hyped about getting a new one>try and fix it>I manage to fix itKinda bittersweet feeling. Next year maybe.
>>83389147>will 200$ android phone have 5 years of software support like 2016 se?Any phone with a good community support will. OEM support is 3-4 years with 4 years of security updates in the case of Samsung and Xiaomi at least.
>>83389319>wont hurt me>since disabling over a hundred stock samsung apps my battery life goes down by 20 percent a day from all day use as opposed to needing to charge every dayand see, the reason i want to delete them is because apparently they are still running to some extent as they are still trying to connect to the internet. i wonder if i can make that a 10 percent
>>833891567 Pro is better
>>83389969Doubt cuz I left all mine and got 8 hours SOT with a Galaxy S10E making people fume and calling me a liar despite showing screenshots. Oh well have fun
>>83390083what does SOT mean? 8 hours doesn't sound like shit, try having a fucking charge for over a week fagg0t. if i could put a custom rom on my s21 i would in a heart beat, lineageos turns anything into an energy saver that lasts months on a standby charge
>>83389074Do you know what cope means? If I was coping I could just get a Pixel 4 for £300 and no longer cope. Specifically, apps using the camera use an APK that's different from using the camera so photo taken within Whatsapp, Instagram, etc look like utter shit. My Huawei earphones (that don't even have an app on the iOS appa store) wouldn't restart audio with a double-tap on a few of my apps whereas it works fine on iOS ( this could be RAM management?).My banking apps, camera connecting apps, shopping apps and even Twitter are just cleaner, snappier and more polished on iOS. I would prefer to have a fingerprint scanner and a 4chan app those are the only thing I miss from Android.
This is one of my favorite, the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic
>>83390255omfg that's not a cope omg ofmmgmtmtthe obsession incels have with this word is really funny
>>83390272Fuck forgot pic
>>83390295what browser lmaoare you using opera mitm or the based opera version?
>>83390313opera mitm, based opera doesn't work well on 4chan
>>83390287Coping is when you don't have a choice in something. I'm choosing iOS as it's better for me.
>>833901341 month?? Sure in standby by not using it. Shit you are way gone into fantasy land my friend...
>>83389772>>83389469>>83389455Xiaomitards sometimes even worse than Samsung shills.What a clear cope.
Does Anon have trouble filling the measly amount of storage space offered in Apple products?
My last kino phone before I ended up getting android shit
Need to replace my beaten up Redmi Note 5 Pro/Ai/whatever.Camera, battery life, lineageos and value for money are what I care about.Was thinking about a Pixel 6 but I break phones a lot and get bored of them, so the 5 years of updates will be wasted on me.I'd prefer under £350 so it costs less to replace it, but at this point I'd pay more to stop checking GSMArena for the next coolest phone
Is there an /spg/ certified list of FOSS app alternatives to common/popular android apps? Or just a list of recommended FOSS apps in general?
>>83390255you can sideload iChanbut you have refresh it every week which is just fucking awful
>>83390983Yea I used to do that but found Safari isn't too bad.

Redmi Note 10 Pro for £230, anything better for that sorta price?
>>83388605What case company should I buy from for the iPhone 13?I went with Otterbox for my previous phone (Galaxy S10+)
Is it possible to install whatsapp on this baby? or should I take long road to write my own program just to proxy into whatsapp installed in android VM?
>iPhone 13 Pro Max>Realme GT Explorer Master>Oppo Reno6 Pro+ 5G>Xiaomi 11 Lite 5G NE>Xiaomi Redmi Note 10T 5G>Sony Xperia 10 III LiteWhy do smartphone manufacturers have this obscure naming scheme nowadays? Why can't they name their phones incrementally like they used to?

this and the other corby phones were indestructible,
>>83390980In the OP
>>83391497What app do younger people use in USA?
>>83391313Why do bongs buying xiaomi? Don't you have realme? It has much better software and capable hardware.
Worth waiting for the Pixel 6 lads? I need a decent phone for games/movies while I'm at work
>>83391016If I want to browse 4chan I honestly just put the phone down and use my desktop. I like my iPhone 6s, it’s almost 6 years old and still gets updates, but like all smartphones it’s basically a toy computer, like a little kiddy joke. It boggles my mind that people get so bent out of shape over what mobile OS you use when smartphones are either total time-wasters or corporate drone summoners. If you’re in your house they aren’t nearly as functional as a computer with a mouse, keyboard and monitor, and when you’re outside you probably should not be browsing 4chan or otherwise wasting time constantly. The only people who give a shit about these idiotic slabs are either zoomies or pajeets.
>>83390917Poco X3 Pro or Poco F3
>>83392145So all these Android users are cucked by iPhones users?I can totally believe that.
>>83388605bought this recently. extremely well battery life, its been a few days and i still havent charged it, i have it on like 80% rnsuper durable too
>>83389423next Tuesday, Sept 21
>>83391656Looked over the OP before posting and yet still managed to miss that somehow, thanks
>>83392371>release date: July 2019>max network speed: 2GWhy the hell would any company release a 2G only phone in 2019 when every country is shutting down 2G/3G service?I wanted to keep my dumbphone, but my carrier shut down 2G and it no longer works, basically forced to use a smartphone even though all I use it for is calls and texts.
>>83392571Get a Nokia 220 4G. Basically the same phone but supports 4G networks. Only costs €13 too. Good deal.
is the pixel 5 any good
>>83392597I already got an iPhone SE1 for free from my cell provider when they forced the switch, but thanks, maybe when this thing kicks the bucket.
>>83392605no, wait for Pixel 6
>>83392672my pixel 2 just bricked and i have no phone at all for now. when does the pixel 6 come out
>>83392695October, just get some cheap phone to hold you over until then
>>83392734that's not a bad idea
is custom ROM scene dying?did globohomo win?
what's the big deal with the pixel 6. what's good about it
>>83392807>is custom ROM scene dying?no
>>83392811Google's own custom chipset, rumored 5 years of update support, new main camera sensor (Google has been using the same old sensor for 5 years straight now).
>>83392819then why the fuck is there no activity around the moderately popular Samsung tablet from 2020 that I have?all I see is one attempt of getting LineageOS on it, made by someone who is just starting to figure shit out, and all other posts in thread are examples of borderline retardation. Other ROMs are non-existent.
Whats a good upgrade to my Oneplus 6T? The 8 and 8T pro are both on sale atm for $400 and $500 respectively, are either of those worth upgrading to?
iPhone 12PM user here. Want to swap back to Android since I don't really like my phone and it would make a great gift for my little sister instead. To make it short, I'm looking for a phone up to 800 euros, no samsung pls. The only requirement for it is processor speed. Decent camera is bonus.
>>83393172there's no 8T Pro, it's 8, 8T and 8 Pro.
>>83393191Google Pixel 5A
>>83392873Samsung is not popular for custom roms due to locked bootloaders on snapdragon models, fucking around with exynos to make shit work on those models, and knox efuse voiding warranty
>>83393233I was thinking about that, OnePlus maybe Moto or Huawei. Too many to choose from. Thanks.
>>83391497just get them onto Telegram or fucking Signal
What's a decent small sized phone? Everything is so big nowadays but I don't care much for a big screen, it just needs to fit in my pocket easily.

I recently got a Galaxy watch with WearOS.Any must-have apps I should be checking out?
>>83392597>>83392647I had a Blackberry Bold 9900 for the longest time (2011 to 2021). That phone took me through high school, university and my first job. While not strictly a dumbphone, it definitely began to feel like a dumbphone after 2013-2014 as everyone steadily dropped support. I only used it for calls and texts, so I didn't really care. My friend gave me his iPhone SE for free after he upgraded to an iPhone 12 Mini (just had to change out the dead battery). I resisted newer smartphones for so long but I actually really like the SE. The phone is small and it's fairly durable, the design is what you might call "classic". Keyboard is ass compared to the Blackberry but not like there are any real alternatives now and you get used to it quickly. It's not like the SE can compete with a €13 phone if all you do is call and text, but having access to WhatsApp, Google Maps, etc is pretty cool.
>>83388605Greecelooking for a phone with>good cameras, including front camera for video calls>decent screen>decent battery>preferably not too heavybudget ~300€. I don't care about gaming or 5g.
>>83390775What on earth kind of applications take up all that space? Or is it like Netflix downloaded stuff to watch offline?I have a 64gb on phone and 256sd. Almost filled the phone storage, hence the card, but have barely put anything on said card. I moved a lot of old pictures on there to try but just can't crack it. Next phone, I believe I will be able to live with 128. 256 native would be cool, though I don't think that's offered on pixel. Planning to do pixel + calyxOS.
>>83392597I was about to ask this. There's definitely a market for high uptime durable dumb phones out there so I assumed someone has to keep making models that work with 4G.
>>83395607most Google apps are available for iOS:https://apps.apple.com/us/app/google-maps/id585027354
VIVO is coming out with really impressive hardware, I only wish they were available more outside of china.
Nokia has so much potential with their new dumb phones but KaiOS is such a shitty OS. I'd rather have their old symbian back.
before i buy a Poco X3, how long (years) should i expect it to last? and do android phones similar to the Poco X3 have a similar lifespan?
>>833960974-5 years, at least
>>83396144good to know. is there anything i can do to increase its lifespan even further?
>>83395828They are available almost everywhere.
>>83395026Do you mean the original 2016 SE? Is it normally usable nowadays, or do you need to recharge it several times a day?
I can't find charger, but anyway battery is not looking good.
>>83390983Is iChan still being developed? Haven't seen anything recently.
>>83391436they will block you
>>83392571Wish they weren't shutting down, 2G is based.
>>83395026>My friend gave me his iPhone SE for free after he upgraded to an iPhone 12 Mini (just had to change out the dead battery).
>>83388812I had one of those. think it launched before the iphone? that thing was ip resistant without certificate and didn't break ever
Any small-medium sized phones that support LineageOS and have 90+hz displays? Will be using on T-Mobile. I've been thinking about getting a Poco F3 but the thing is huge.
Thanks amazon for packing my fucking kilobuck phone nice and safe.
>>83397950amazons getting complacent. packing complaints aside, i often will get far less than i paid for of anything or the order is flat out wrong. going to say dont order anything worth money through amazon prime. expensive shit like a phone get it through the official stores
>>83388615>getting the 12 when the 13 is coming outAlso the fold is where it's at.
>>83398156pretty shit specs for the price
>>83397438>think it launched before the iphone?No, it was Nokia's "iPhone killer", made in response to the launch of the iPhone.
iphone 13 seems like gigantic disappointmentit's like ip12, but software upgrades that do something somethingWhats the point of releasing 60hz phones in 2021Whats the point of releasing 1tb memory phone with usb 2.0 for data transferWhy are the batteries so tiny stillWheres the fingerprint sensorYou might as well not release them and things would be exactly the same.

How to back up data/files on the note 3 without having the time stamps get messed up? Copy paste or Samsung's back up tool both mess things up and set the dates to when they are copied.
>>83392873samsung hasn't been a popular target in a number of years now brosef
>>83393172friend of mine got an 8T recently, got a good deal on it due to it being run out in fabvour of the 9 seriesonly used it to setup lineageos for him, it has official support and everything works goodi didn't think i'd care that much, but man does the 120Hz screen feel nice
>>83393172>>83399089oh as for if it's worth it, idk, that's up to youif you play heavy games or something then perhapshe gave me his 3T and i have no need for even half this spec
I have a legit question. I’m in Japan, but I’ll be importing a phone from US so I can still take escalator upskirts of jk. I’ve had an iPhone X for four years, and it just werks but I’m feeling pretty annoyed with how locked down iOS is. I came from a Galaxy S7 before this, so I’m thinking about switching back to Android. I’m considering>iPhone 13 Pro>Xperia 1 III>Pixel 6My main concern is the camera. I have a DSLR but I do take photographs with my phone pretty regularly as a hobby.How is a Snoy’s Android experience? Will I be regretting not getting a Pixel? I like the overall body and specs so not worried about the meme shape.
So it's come time for me to move on from my Blackberry Classic and it has this neat quirk where I can choose any audio file to use as a ringtone. As far as I can tell, that's not a feature that shows up in any of those three links in the OP, so I can't search for that. I know there are a bunch of guides out there for converting files into something that you can force a phone to accept, but are there any modern phones that let me do it Blackberry style and just pick any regular file? It's very convenient.
>>83391401Im going to stick with ol reliable spigen. Ive been caseless on my iphone 6s+ but going to want something rugged.
>>83399228What audio format specifically? My LG can set anything that shows up on the music player like midi and m4a. But the company shut irs mobile division.
So 12 mini or 13 mini?
>>83399324Currently I've got an mp3 set as the ringtone but I've got a mix of mp3, m4a, FLAC, and apparently a couple WAV for some reason.
Best custom rom for OP7Pro? OOS 11 is fucking shit I can't believe it.Is OnePlus in general finally losing their touch? I no longer see them releasing good phones after 7 Pro.
>>8339938713 cuz bigger battery also wtf she is so hot
do you guys use google assistant or it's equivalents
>>83394584lmfao more like countries with more wealth buy more status symbols while countries with less wealth dontbut hey. at least you're thinking different™
>>83397950yeah amazon packing just sucks. thankfully the item has its own packaging but come on
>>83395607It may surprise you, but you don't HAVE to use Apple Maps. >>83396328Yeah the original 2016 SE. It's completely usable. I installed a $30 Chink 1800 mAh battery (the original was 1500 or 1600 I believe) and it usually still has 30-40% charge at 11pm after a day of normal usage. If I use it sparingly, it will last 2-3 days on a charge. At first I thought this was just normal for modern smartphones because my Blackberry would normally last 2 days with typical usage and 5 days with light usage, but according to my Android buddies, this endurance is insane for something with such a small battery.Now imagine if Apple stopped their relentless pursuit of "muh thin" and just made a nice, thicc iPhone with a beefy battery. Fucker would go all week. But no, we need tiny batteries because thin is good, and we need to squander all the power efficiency we so painstakingly engineered.
>get new chink phone and want to try custom ROMs>want to do a full phone backup, apps and their settings...etc.>proper backup requires root>can't get root without unlocking bootloader which wipes all dataLiterally why
>>83400443If it's a new phone why do you have data to backupThat's the first thing you should doYou can probably do some botnet cloud backup in the meanwhile
>>83400284>do you guys use google assistant or it's equivalentsI only installed to try the Google speech to text meme to see if I could dictate my 4chan posts but it worked horribly
>>83400443you install a custom rom immediately, before you put anything on it
>>8339938712 is cheaper.
>>83393191Do you have OnePlus 9 pro 8/128 version available?If not, try OnePlus 9R, Realme GT.
How is the heating issue on 888?I am retiring my xperia xzp. I am not sure whether to goes for IPhone13, X1 III or some chinkphones.
>>83399183Bump please. The 13 Pro would probably just be my fallback if my ultimate decision is to just get the same phone I already have with a better camera and better battery, I guess. Boring but it does the job.

>>83402405Yes, only two years is pretty garbage
>>83402070That’s what I’m leaning towards too.

>>83401990Annoying.I've learned how to use game booster to manage temperatures at around 39-40c but it comes at the cost of throttling in some games.
>>83403937Now post the potato chips
>try using phone naked for a change>feels pretty nice>accidentally drop it>screen protector plops out, adhesive collects all the dust and can't put back onman
>>83404106It's a sign you shouldn't use screen protector either. Just use it without anything. I use th small slim case that comes in the box and nothing else. Who cares about scratches
I have a xiaomi and I try to keep FTP/SSH servers and termux running on it in the background but as soon as the screen locks the apps halt. friends with samsung phones also have this same issue. I can't see any setting or toggle to turn it off either.are there any modern android phones that don't do this bullshit with background apps/locks?
>>83404106Sounds like a shit screen protector if it just "plops out"
>>83404139also rooting is not an option, need stock android for banking and work apps
>>83404078The actual chips not the promo shot
>>83404133yeah the fact that I even dared to use it without the case just means that I'm over and out of the honeymoon period, but at the same time it also means some measure of protection is needed considering I just fucking dropped it even though I never did before

>>83405083and to add, their service is really good, my phone was run over by car, screen and back fucking destroyedthey change battery, because i lied about it and said it was starting to go shit and they installed new camera module for free, i 'only' paid around 280$ for screen and new back, they didnt even delete my stuff, everything was there untouched
Why does so many Android phones constantly have issues with standby drain?? I tried so many this year and the best one was a heavily tweaked Exynos lmao. Wtf is going on?? Someone please give me a fix. My signal strength is always full bars on both mobile and WiFi and I don't use social media apps or anything. Please tell me how to fix this reee
When will the third-party cases be available for the iPhone 13?
>>83390387No, coping is when you HAD a choice, made a dumb decision and now you're fooling yourself by trying to justify that decision. There's no logical reason for buying a phone above $300, any Android phone can browse the net and call your mom just as well as the latest iphone. There's simply no functionality currently available that would be worth paying several times more for.
>>83405174its because of google crap that works in background

>>83406333Only a stupid retard would want that flip 3 gimmick
>>83405174Degoogle your phone.LineageOS + MicroG, e.foundation, Graphene, Calyx; whatever you want.
>>83406767Fuck no just give me a phone that works without this bullshit. I'm not 16 anymore. I don't fucking want custom pajeet shit on my device
>>83406840Guess I have no other choice... iPhone 11 still pretty fucking expensive for a 2 year old phone with 60hz LCD hmm
>>83388605How to get E71/72 to accept modern TRRS headphones? Every time it complains about "enhancement not supported". If I unplug them halfway they work, but obviously fall out.Choosing headphone mode or changing profiles doesn't work. BT headphones don't work well either, they're way too loud, even when setting a low EQ profile.

Boys please what is the good file explorer for Android please god
>>83407406I like x-plore
>>83407406SE file explorer
what are the supported file systems on android for usb drives? ntfs and exfat dont work and i tried fat32 and its super slow plus i cant even put some files on it due to the size limit.
I'm looking for a new phone and after some searching I want to get one of these, different price ranges but for my needs they're absolutely fine.1. Samsung S10e2. Pixel 5/5a3. OnePlus Nord 2 (Also found a 7T Pro which I kinda liked)4. Motorola Edge 20I prefer smaller phones but I guess phones on the bigger side can do the job as well. I'll mostly use them for calls, text and to take photos.
What about the new Nokia 2720? Is it worth it?
>>83407945Can't you just let the phone format it
>>83407945ntfs works on my phone
>>83408752it formats to fat32, which like i said, its slow and limits file size. i literally cant put like half of the files i have
>>83408814How old is your phone? Maybe fat32 is all it supports.
>>83408850its a google pixel 3
>>83407406bump, but also need gallery and phone/contacts app
>>83388812I still use that as my only phone. Works fine.
>>83407945Material Files, on play store and F-Droid>>83409179Simple Dialer and Simple Contacts
anons, i'm thinking about becoming an itoddler. should I seek help?
>>83409436you're fine, and if somebody tells you something about it they're most probably a piece of shit
>>83409436yes. I've been in your shoes, bought the 12ProMax, I missed F-Droid, being able to install apps and I also missed not being in a fucking cage.
>>83408871Looks like Pixel 3 only supports fat32
>>83409487there are many issues with iphones but the "cage" argument is just dumb, like you know you can't install external apps before buying so why spend the money just to complain afterwards?
>>83409556because I thought it was different, to be honest. I thought I still had some kind of freedom or at least a way to install apps but after I checked out AltStore I cringed, called the courier and sent in back. Ecosystem is good if you have other apple products, but these are known to be overpriced and shit when it comes to quality (except phones).
>>83409593idk, I'm quite happy with my ol' mac and I can't complain, but I get where you're coming from. hope you're happy about the phone you got afterwards
>>83407406I like Amaze>>83409179>gallerySony Xperia Album
>>83409593>Store I cringed, called the courier and sent in back.what phone did you switch to?
>>83409646well, the apfel ecosystem didn't work for me, that's all. It's not a bad phone, probably has the best stock apps any phone can have and facetime is a godsend in some situations but it doesn't have the flexibility I want sadly.>>83409663none, I still use my old S10+ until I can find something satisfactory. OneUI sucks but slap a nova launcher on there and it's usable.
>>83409886>be good at marketing>win in sales
>>83398476theres a fucking iphone 13 now? last new iphone i heard of was iphone 6, wtf
>>83409987yeah they release a new one every yeartho if this years model is of any indication they might move onto 2 year model soon
>>83409436just donti mean if you like things that feel great in hand and you dont have problem with being fucked in the ass every time you want to do something on phone thats beyond basic stuff, then sureotherwise dont
>>83409436I mean, you should seek help for asking for tech advice from /g/, but that's another issue
>>83406882get an SE thenor find a used 11
>>83398476>Whats the point of releasing 1tb memory phone with usb 2.0 for data transferThey want to encourage wifi transfer instead
>>83409436Me too. Tired of Android standby drain...
>>83410272>anon has problem with standby battery>just get se 2020 which has tiny ass, trash batteryyeah fucking genius right here
>>83410309if you want good batteries why are you looking at apple to begin with
>>83409718>It's not a bad phone, probably has the best stock apps any phone can have and facetimemy main reasons behind getting one. The only think is I don't like privacy thing apple tried to pull. I don't like the fact that apple can just look at my shit. Only other option is to go pixel route and de-google, but I need to install certain apps to do regular stuff on the go. fuck bros.
>>83398476iphone 12 was just too good, 13 is just little update just like 8 was to 7
>>83410309Yeah I'm not dumb enough to listen to this idiot.>>83410322iPhones have good battery life from 11 series you dumb fuck SE is a joke
>>83410366>iPhones have good battery life from 11 serieswrong
>>83410359>The only think is I don't like privacy thing apple tried to pullthe only thing I don't like is apple slowly stripping away privacy.
>>83410380Uhm anon.. https://youtu.be/1srQxv1mXbw1000mah more and still lost with 17%. Don't even try to convince anyone 120hz takes up 1000mah plus those additional 17% cuz that's bullshit. The screen is slightly bigger but that doesn't give such a huge effect. Applies just superior since iPhone 11 came out
Does anyone know any good Bixby routines I should use for my Fold 3, or should I just not bother with this feature?
Why do iphones that are refurbised cost more than mid-top end android phones in europe?
>>83410865Even low end shit like SE2 refurbished cost over 400$, which is supposed to be its price while it's new?
>>83410865idiots buy them
>>83410363high hz displays are cheap and plentifulfingerprint sensors are common usb 3.2 type c is commonly available on mid tier phonesThey're artificially choosing not to put cheap but really good tech into the phones to artificially segment them and I guess people will buy them because apple holds monopoly on apple systems.
>>83410821>bixby buttonJust remap the button to do something else. Fuck bixby.
>>83410821I recommend using usb debug bridge to remove bixby apps
>>83410865lower classes going wild over them and keeping the price up
>>83410968Apple doesn't allow stores to sell them under the prices they set, it keeps the "prestige" up.Their business strategy simply isn't dependent on selling maximum amounts of phones.
will there be more smol phones from samsung like the s10e?
>>83410991looks like its working, people firmly believe its a premium brand, ik day laborers who eat less and dont buy clothes just to buy apple garbage
>>83411033don't be such a hater, I dislike Apple too but I can't help it and say it is a premium brand. their phones really last a long time and get updates regularly throughout their lifespan when other phones get only 2 or 3. They show status, that's all and the general population bite into it.
>>83410821Just mess around with them, it's a lot like tasker but without the complexity so you can use them to easily set up shit like turn off wifi, start google maps, and play from spotify when it connects to your car's bluetooth for example.
>>83411003S22 is going to be pretty compact, display size is rumoured to be 6.06"
>>83411130I swear if they don't move that ugly ass center hole back into the corner where it belongs I'm done with their shit. Who on earth decided center holes are better than corner!??
Wanting to upgrade my S8 since it's sometimes just creating audio unless I reboot the phone.Was thinking Pixel 5a, or do I wait for the 6?
>>83411121their stuff are literal toys, man, dont fall for the marketing, i used apple products, always went back to actual devices, the only good thing is the support length
>>83411186I used apple too, came back to android but I can't deny the quality, it would be hypocritical.
>>83411186And the performance, and the battery life/standby drain, and all the physical stores, and the better design, and the no tracking everything that drains my battery on Android like crazy. Man iPhones look so good compared to Android these days
>>83410865iPhones stay updated for longer
>>83400443>can't get root without unlocking bootloader which wipes all dataSo if someone steals your phone and wants to unlock the phone's bootloader to get access to your data, they won't be able to when the data is wiped
>>83406326Doesn't work. they just mass call numbers in bulk
>>83392371Ya'll, just get a Unihertz Jelly 2. 3-inch display, tiny phone, 2000mAh battery so full day+.5 battery life on Android 10 even with streaming YouTube. Been my daily since March, never going back to giant phones again.
>>83407238:( I’m stupid, that was so obvious…Thank you, anon.

Is there any way to get a boot-looping LGnexus 5x to not bootloop long enough to rip data off of it's storage? I've got some recordings of my now-dead grandmother on there that are invaluable. I got my cash from the class action suit etc, so I'm not upset or anything, but I was going through my old stuff and realized I didn't get those recordings off it before it started to go. I'm running xubuntu and I know how to fuck around with ADB. I'm willing to heat the phone up or part of it whatever if I can get like an hour or two of time to get in, get my shit, and get out. Pretty sure the bootloader is unlocked.
>>83412965You would have to put it in recovery and use adb and flash a custom recovery like TWRP, then restart to custom recovery and browse the storage to know what to push to your PCThat's the usual route to go
>>83409406Based.Did the same thing earlier this year for a few months. It's pretty good as a dumbphone (with some additional functionality).
>>83413018Sorry, meant you have to put it in fastboot to flash a custom recovery
>>83413033yeah idk if that will get me past the loop or not
>>83389156Nice renders, shitty build quality irl. Get 7 Pro for that money.
>>83413072Check to see if you can put it in recovery, if you can do that you should be able to get into fastboot, it's the only way you're going to be able to get the files you want
>>834111675a will probably satisfy if you just want basic stuff and a great camera. Pixel 6 will be a flagship device. its being very hyped due to the cameras which could be the best on the market and potential AI advancements with Tensor. either way you get Android 12
>>83388605Anyone ever had this problem/have any suggestions?I have a galaxy note 4 that i use as a backup phone/dick around notepad. After using it for a bit, about a 1cm tall strip of screen horizontally stops responding to touch. pen still works, the display still works, and all other touch input works, but that part seems to skip. Turning it completely off for a while seems to fix it for a while, but then it happens again.I tried doing that "update touchscreen firmware" thing with the dialer menu, and that undid it for a while, but it came back.Any suggestions as to what it might be?
When are the iPhone 11 prices gonna fall?? 13 announced but it's still same price... Wtf is this bullshit...
>>83412233Based. Same size as the Xperia mini and I loved that phone so much. This one is really cheap so might as well give it a go. Fucking hate all these tablets
>>83414380I keep seeing complaints about overheating doing normal tasks and green tinted screens, which is putting me off from the 5a.
I'm thinking of preordering the 13 Mini today.Please give me your most pessimistic take the 12 Mini's battery - and will the advertised extra 1 hour of battery life on the 13 Mini solve it?I'm the same 5 year old iPhone 7 poster with 80% battery life poster. I'm always very conscious about its battery life whenever I go outside, and I try not to leave the house without it at 100% otherwise I only ever use it if I have to such as for communication or maps.Will I still have to keep worrying about the phone dying once I hop on the 13 Mini?I'd love to be able to be free of having to worry about leaving the house with only 50% battery life, while I can still keep music+bluetooth+mobile data on.gf has the standard 12 and honestly after using my 7 for 5 years, I think the mini is the perfect size (bigger screen but smaller phone overall).
Does anyone know where you can get a US version of the ROG phone 5, or a Zenfone 8? Or if the international/tencent versions get decent service in the US.
>>83414540I would wait for reviewers like theunlockr to do his usual battery test which means outside for a full day with default settings and 5g.
>>83392597I have the 225 4G. Works like a fucking dream, and the battery lasts for over a week. I'm off the "sMaRt PhOnE" bandwagon for good, m8's.
So, is rooting still viable? Last time i rooted a phone it was a Galaxy S4 and a lot of people tell me it's not worth it anymore
>>83410865I don't know why Europeans want iPhones so much. North Americans buy them because of iMessage/facetime. Doesn't everyone use cross platform messaging apps like WhatsApp in Europe?
>>83416421>doesn't everyone use WhatsAppYes we do. In uni, at work, we're on whatsapp, even iPhone users use WhatsApp which kinda kill the purpose of iMessage and FaceTime but hey, at least they have iPhones. At work, there's me and one professor that use Android in our research group (that I know of) and while the rest of the group comes with macbooks, he's rocking an ancient Dell that runs MSOffice 2003 on a linux distro, kek.
>>83412965Did you try the freezer trick?
>>83414386Apple dropped the 11 from $599 to $499
>>83414540How do you cope with your gf having a bigger phone than you?
>>83414579Asus official online storehttps://store.asus.com/us/
>>83417370I cope with my cock's girth being larger than her wrists. Am I doing it right?>>83414592Just saw the one for the 12 Mini. Seems fine, as long as it can last through a day of normal use.
Just ordered the normal Galaxy S21 with Exynos 2100. Literally got it cheaper than the S10e lol. Anyone have it? How's it like. I paid 350euro from my carrier with a special deal
I got a new phone to replace my G7 because the battery started to die. I got a new battery for it, but now I'm stock with a phone I don't really know what to do with.
Has anyone used these Sony view cover cases? Thinking about getting one for a xperia 10 ii, but is it good?
>>83418289I would never use a case with a cover, that shit is annoying as fuck.
There's no reason your phone couldn't have a headphone jack. https://youtu.be/Ijssm6Qv5nE?t=857
>have urge to consoom and buy a pixel 5a>3a still works fine
>>83391313Xiaomi phones have bad resale value. My Note 9s was bought for $225 and now its ~$120Buy something with a removable battery like a Motorola or something.
>>83412233Really small. Minimum screen size for me would be 5 inch so my cock can stack up
>>83419103It can't be worse than the S10e Exynos right? That one was pretty alright. All I care for is battery life and mrwhostheboss did a test showing the Snapdragon and this drain the exact same
We did it kings!
know any good sites for used phones?i'm in eu if it matters
>>83419542All Androids have poor resale value
>>83417683>>83419581For 350€ I would be happy about it, Exynos or not. Battery life should be better than S10e, at least based on GSMarena's and Notebookcheck's battery tests.
Samsung icons look so ugly is there a way to change them to look more like Google stock?

>>83419873tfw $640 trade in value >tfw $100 military discountim only paying $300 out of pocket suck my nuts
>>83419604hope prices on the 12 fall, cause i've been meaning to cop one
>>83419899the battery life increases on the 13 alone justify going with it over the 12
>>83419924??? these two generations are barely different, i see no reason to spend 25% more on the newer one when it'll be just as "outdated" come next year
>>83419975Thats comparing the 13 Pro to the 12 Pro MAX, which as you may know has a significantly bigger battery.
What is the best cheap phone under $300? (under 400 at most). I can't decide between Oneplus, Motorola, Nokia, TCL. They all have so many phones around the same specs at very different prices. I can't use Pixel 4a or I would.
>>83420023yes, and?if i cared about battery life i wouldn't be looking at iphones
>>83419848Yeah, don't use their gay stock launcher.
>>83420060iPhones non-ironically have better battery life than the majority of Android flagships (excluding SE and Mini ofc)
>>83404608Dunno about clover anymore but in kuroba you can set dead zones for just that. Handy for pulling the left drawer out.
>>83406233In samsung phones, the phone app has settings to auto block fraud calls. I used to be buzzed all the time but not anymore. Pixel phones apparently have that too but I've never owned or tested that
