>>88028221SnapDragon Note20 Ultra is the best smartphone.
>>88028229OP hereIm too poor for samsungSo Imma go say redmi note is best
>>88028221Still liking my budget oneplus n20 even if the standards on this general are extremely high!
>>88028229That's a big phone
>>88028249It's acrually slightly bigger than the S22U meme, lol.
>>88028229I'm considering this, but those square corners put me off. Is it comfy to hold?Also it costs 85% of a new s22u over here..
>>88028261wait lol nevermind, it has 1440p screen that only works at 120hz if you set it to 1080pmeme phone
>>88028221Hello guys, I live in India and I want a good cheap phone with good custom rom support for 150-170 USD. (15,000 - 18,000) Rupees. Please send any suggestions and Amazon is preferred. Thanks !!
Are Sony phones still some kind of niche thing for camera enthusiasts or something or is it good enough for daily use?I like their thinner and taller design but I dont know jack shit about cameras
>>88028324It outperforms the S22U on every metric.
>>88028605But you are forced to use non-native 1080p on a 6.9" device. And dont even tell me that you dont need 120hz
>under $250 USD>headphone jack>mid-tier chipset>microsd is nice but not a must>145mm height maximumWhat are my choices?
why do people say 1080p is bad for phones when no one uses a phone that close to their face to tell the difference
>>88028641It does have its own limitations, but the performance of the S22U will make you cry. It's bad, really really bad. It throttles like crazy.
>>88028809you can still tell
>>88028818My Galaxy S5 is 1080x1920 and I can't tell unless I intentionally put it next to my face. My Lenovo Tab M8 is 1280x720 and I can't tell the pixels when reading manga unless I put it next to my face.
>>88028836I can easily tell the difference between my 1080x1920 and my 1440x3120 phone

Has anyone bought another countries version (German in my case) and did it turn out OK. Talking about smartphone
>>88028344try the poo phone, it's available on your closest street.
>>88030502Yep. I've bought a Russian smartphone, several German phones, one French one.You have to watch out that LTE and 5G frequencies on the phone are compatible with your carrier and country. If you're in the EU the frequencies are the same, with maybe a very rare exception on exotic smartphones. For the US I don't remember.Also check that the phone is not carrier-locked. Unlocking a European phone can be tedious so it's better if it's unlocked. Otherwise just Google or bring it to any phone shop, they'll do it quickly for free or for 10 euros.
Did Samsung also extend their support(for updates) for the midrange as well as the flag ships
>>88029124You're in luck a13 4g or a13 5g

My LG G8x ThinQ has a nonstandard charging slot. Lately, it hasn't been charging well (I plug it in and there's about a 50% chance of it actually charging). I think it's because there's a bunch of dirt and grime on the contacts. How do I clean them?
How good is the software support for Samsung midships?

Fuck android.I fell asleep with my phone in my hand and somehow during the night accidentally activated the emergency alert, cops and an ambulance showed up at about 3am and woke everyone up. now i'm being billed for the call out.
>>88032761fucking kek i hope this is real
>>88029124Has anyone experience with the Fairphone 3 and 4? Seem the right size to me, I just don't like that the 4 doesn't have a jack.
>must chose between having a headphone jack or a telephoto lens the absolute state
Black Shark 4 or OP 9R?Looking for a phone that can run any kind of emulations smoothly(citra mostly) and other demanding phone games,camera quality doesnt matter since im not gonna take pic of myself or anyone though
>>88032761i hope this is real lmao
>>88032880the choice is obvious. cameras on phones are mediocre, get a separate camera with a large sensor and anything more than a mosquito bite for a lens.
>>88029411a $100 phone was fine just 2 years ago... hopefully a small economic downturn will let us have snapdragon 680 + fhd screen for $100.
>>88033396honestly I agree with you, even if I barely use my headphones and would love to have a nicer zoom
>>88032248What'd you think?
>>88033396>>88033434but the point was that it bothers me that such a choice exists nowadays
So Pixel 7 is coming out on October 14th. About when do we get a spec sheet or early reviews?I want to upgrade my Pixel 3 XL but want something with a real good battery this time. If the 7 is disappointing I might just get a Zenfone 9. Though only 2 years of updates sucks.
>>88028221How's the overhearing with the IV? Is it fixed?
>>88033545Too big, sadly.
>>88031428not sure about zenfone 9, but i have the 8 and it gets pretty hot while using it (not gaming, just browsing the web or checking emails) and the camera is only okay, it'd be pretty good if it was a 300 dollar phone, but it hardly holds up compared to similarly priced phones
>>88033922>overheating>fixedyou faggots never learn
How good is the Samsung M32 offer on hotukdeals?I don't know how much of an effect the currency exchange will have on the price (here it is € to £)
I have a brand new Poco F4 and I've been told to install LineageOS on it. Anybody willing to please guide me through the process? I'm a complete boomer when it comes to smartphones.Is it even a good idea for me to be doing this?
>>88034996Why’d you install LineageOS on a brand new phone, unless it’s for privacy or the stock ROM is laggy? Better to wait until updates stop and then do it.Anyway, there are guides for unlocking bootloader online. Then you need to get TWRP and LineageOS, in this order. There are install guides for both on the sites which provide the files, usually.If there is no TWRP or LineageOS for this model, you can use GSI. You can use Phh’s AOSP (clean and degoogled Android) or LineageOS GSI (same as AOSP, but tweaked and has a bit different apps).
What is the best mid range stock android phone? Im thinking about Moto G series
>>88035097>Why’d you install LineageOS on a brand new phone, unless it’s for privacy or the stock ROM is laggy?That's what I was recommended when I mentioned my needs here some time ago.>the rest of the postYou should probably treat me as the smartphone version of some guy who only ever uses his PC for Microsoft Word and emailing occasional cat pictures, because that's about the extent of my smartphone knowledge.

Pretty much every Russian reviewer got nothing phone with some kind of defects.
>>88030638So much for no more bloat to be removed. I bet the anon who only needs to remove 3 apps from One UI is some zoomer who spends 90% of his time on social media.
>>88035810>wasStill is. Been rocking it for 5 years now and the only thing that's gone wrong is the USB-C port needs servicing (charging works but data doesn't. I've already cleared the port of dust)

just got my s22 ultra. any settings i should change right off the bat?
>>88034007Yeah you can assume the Zenfone 9 is a hot phone as well, because it uses the latest Shitdragon SoC. For the price you're better off buying an iPhone 13 (mini).

>>88036313Mine has a messed up headphone jack and it freezes, slows down, and overheats more often. I still love it and wish there was a phone that has just a slightly bigger screen with slightly smaller bezels
>>88036756Why should i care for that shit?
Is there any recent phone out there with a similar feature set to the oppo reno 2 (integrated fingerprint reader, hidden front camera, SD card, headphone jack) but with a non dogshit camera, a better chipset and actual update support?
>>88036648It's a thick boy eith vapor chamber. Probably fine, they actually adressed the issued not like snoys

>>88037693I'd probably buy it if it were 50 eurobucks, but it costing closer to 130 makes one feel like getting something with a crisper screen for a few bob more. this clown market needs to go.
My phone shat itself, so I've been looking to get a new one. On ebay they sell 'demo phones," I made the mistake of going down the rabbit hole and I don't feel like buy some bullshit dongle from some shady website and like 5 hours of installing roms etc. etc. im autistic but is this shit worth the hassle?
>>88036867Rip. Mine doesn't have any heat or speed issues but the battery is clearly not as good as it was in the beginning. The Sony Xperia 10 III looks to be a pretty decent possible replacement that Doesn't cost an arm and a leg
>>88036382MIUI used to run fine on even shit phones (think snap 4xx), just disable the telemetry shit
>>88035648MIUI is only shit if you cared about it enough and started to compare it to what an android rom should be. But youre a basic user who doesnt really care about that shit then just search how to disable the built in ads and youre good to go
>>88036550You can fix over heating by throttling. You are an idiot and shouldn't be on /g/ if you have no hardware knowledge.
Anyone else thought we'd have like paper-thin foldable translucent phones or holographic phones by now when they were a kid?

>>88038668Don't respond to questions you don't know the answer to.
>>88039702I know the answer. You are a retard.
>>88037974True but I wish it didn't have weak specs.
it's gross how much better One UI is over stock android. I miss when stock was king and we all laughed at touchjizz.
Does anyone know of a way I can run the google maps app without services installedI am on oneui, no root
>>88038419>just search how to disable the built in ads and youre good to goWill there be ads? How do I turn those off. I was constantly pissed off by my first phone (a Samsung) that would keep installing and updating 20 diff bullshit Samsung programs that I really didn't want or care about.I've also no clue yet as to how to transfer my files or info or anything from my old phone to the new one, I know I should probably move the old sim to the new phone and I think I know how to do that, but nothing after that and I'm assuming there's going to be more to it than moving the sim over.
>>88030407Pixel camera lives up to the hype, but the fingerprint readers are iffy since they went to the in-screen ones
>>88036046I have this phone and miss it, but SD card is only supported up to 256. I now have a 512GB card :(
r elease the zenfone right now i need to consoooooom
Have all read/writes to SD cards been throttled to 5mb/s since Android 11 introduced scoped storage and that storage access framework API?I wanna know if its my phone or android is literally force deprecating external storage in slow motion hoping people won't miss it because it's so slow now.

>>88043653Nah, actually the opposite believe it or not. On my Moto Razr 5G, it just connects through bluetooth, let's me change my songs, see my texts, notifications etc. On my Samsung devices, I have to connect to it through an app in which I have to change a bunch of settings and shit. More customizable but more unnecessary. Non-Samsung devices can use the app too but don't need it to use the watch.

>>88044390Wait what, really?
>>88036648The 888 the z8 used had overheating across the board because poor manufacturing by Samsung, the 8+1 gen or whatever it's called that the z9 is made by tmsc and supposedly has better energy efficiency and less overheating. While the z9 is small and thus likely would run hotter then a phablet with the same chip, i expect it shouldn't be as bad as a z8
>>88043703You're holding it wrong
Is there any way to make the s pen on the s22 ultra work for any app? I really want to be able to click the button on the s pen and have it go to the next page like it does for when you're in gallery.

>>88037822>50 eurobucksI am from a small underdeveloped country, I would not know what to tell you because I have no idea where you live to say that you are a tremendous cope. I meant that the E range of motorola makes no sense if a phone two years ago is more powerful than its more economical g range.
>Don't know much about modern phones>All I want is a phone with a good camera and if possible 4k60 recording that doesn't look like complete shit>a lot of Samsung phones have tiny ass batteriesMaybe I'm asking for too much, or I'm just not looking wide enough, since I dunno which chink shit to trust, or if the classic brands are still worth anything.Hell, I've even been thinkin about those "Battery Cases" that I found out about only 2 days ago.

Still sitting on my Oneplus 3T.With the current geopolitical situation and development, things won't get better.Already as of now almost all the recent smartphones are NOT worth their money.Battery life isn't improving, rather it gets worse, photo quality is not improving.Huawei P30 Pro with its optical zoom is still one of the best and that one is several years old now.
