I have 1000-1200 dollars and I absolutely do not know what to buy.
>>92186921Buy the S23 it's fucking amazing. Base model is all you need
>>92186960Currently, this products are not available for ordering on samsung.com
How come the Pixels are the only decent new phones with an official LineageOS ROM? I need a new phone and I'm sick and tired of checking lienageosdevices every day.
>>92187028Just buy from whatever store sells it
>>92186960samsung is rubbish. no one should buy any of their phones
>>92187061Except the new s23 is a godsent. Nothing compares.
>>92187035> Pixels are the only decent new phones Google discovered dozens of Android devices can be compromised without any user interaction necessary due a multiple zero-day vulnerabilities in Samsung's Exynos modems. The affected devices include smartphones, wearables, and even vehicles. As TechCrunch reports, a total of 18 zero-day vulnerabilities have been discovered by Google's Project Zero team of security analysts. Four of those are severe enough to allow for Internet-to-basedband remote code execution, which means an attacker only needs a victim's phone number to compromise their handset—no user interaction is necessary. Tim Willis, head of Project Zero, explains in a blog post that, "With limited additional research and development, we believe that skilled attackers would be able to quickly create an operational exploit to compromise affected devices silently and remotely." As the vulnerabilities are found in Exynos modems, dozens of devices are affected. Google provided the following list of products that can be compromised: Google's own Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, and Pixel 7 Pro Any wearables using the Exynos W920 chipset Any vehicles using the Exynos Auto T5123 chipset
My xperia 1 iii has been having a problem where the button I use to switch apps doesn't work unless I restart it.
>>92186794does adb debloating do anything beneficial or is it placebo? spent last night disabling and then uninstalling 188 packages from a used galaxy a40 I was given, google apps and services included>inb4 rootI fear I might brick it since the volume buttons are ded
>>92187352Even if its just placebo having a cleaner environment after debloating makes everything feel so much less messy
>>92186794Why the FUCK hasn't Motorola released ANDROID 12 yet in the UK!!!!!ANDROID 14 IS ONLY MONTHS AWAY FFS
>>92187162Only fanatic or moron will buy Sony this days.
>>92187645Our execs are lazy and refuse to get with the times on OS support. Our biggest release of the year coming this June is so far only confirmed for 3 years of support. They looked at the new 4/5 year commitments samsung and others are making and said "that's cool lol, anyways"
>>92187809but Motorola is basically stock????how difficult is it to add Moto Actions, rename the lock screen as 'peek' and just ship it???samsung a04s is £100 and is on Android 13!!!
I use my phone for maps, messaging, and YouTube. Is there some amazing functions I’m missing that people are using their high-spec phones for, or is anything more than $400 just a luxury item?
>>92187847Each year of OS upgrade support costs us money to Google that if I recall correctly the higher ups are resistant to paying. I am not from the engineering team so I don't know how difficult it is on their end. Support may get better in the future because our portfolio size is supposed to shrink in the coming years.
>>92187960nope. Specsfags will obsess over Genshin Impact having 2 extra frames but it makes zero difference. a decent screen is worth a couple extra bucks though
>>92187960Is there some amazing functions I’m missing that people are using their high-spec phones forYes you get more compact phones for higher price. You also get better camera and screen. You also get much better speakers(usually) and a processor that will stay snappy for 5 years. You also get better internet speeds and faster storage.
Pixel 7 is 600CAD, worth it to replace my aging Galaxy S20FE? Samsung doesn't want to make new FE phones
>>92188027never pay more than 300 for a pixel phone
>>92188047Anything 300CAD is used shit or budget phones for poors
>>92187985fair enough. i know its not easy to just implement it but tonnes of Motos phones from 2020 and 2021 are still stuck on their shipped OS's. Motorola probably loses the money they save from not upgrading OS's due to customers not buying because of the lack of future proofing.
>>92188071It is one of the most common criticisms we receive. There are people pushing to fix this internally but it is a battle. Same story with the continued camera mediocrity.
i want a grapheneos/lieange phonepoor/mid budget options to take into consideration?i dont want to spend 700 euros on a pixel 7 pro for cunny/anime/shitposting media phone
>>92187996I will never understand the fun of Genshin Impact.
>Mentioned in the previous thread how I got a used S21U recently with Exynos and I actually really love it>get called a Samsung shill
I have a Pixel 7, what should I download/do to it?
My old Pixel 3A got Planned Obsolescence'd>Charger stopped working right and cleaning it out didn't help, battery life slowly reducing, frequent updates slowly wasting more and more of the limited harddrive space etc >All within weeks of each otherSo I'm getting a new phone.Pixel 7 is looking good - and it's the same price on a plan as the 6a ...but... I can't see why upgrading it is worthwhile.There's been 4 flagships since my last phone, but I can't actually see any meaningful upgrades.What am I in for with a new device, apart from losing my 3.5mm jack?
>>92188012The camera, my guySmartphones killed cheap point and shoots a long time ago and now modern flagships are better than 1 inch sensor high end point and shoots People understand that its better to spend a bit more and get a smartphone that can be a great camera rather than to buy an expensive separate cameraIt's why you seen these clueless posts in these generals of "lol who cares just get a real camera" not understanding the landscape and the market right now
>>92186794Rooted my lineage os.Now what? Installed an adblocker but what other cool stuff can I do with this device?
>>92188994Dunno. Only good thing about rooting nowadays is adblocking but the downside is bank apps turn tsundere if you root
>>92189353Banking apps are pretty much mandatory for me at this point, but I can live without browsing web pages on my phone
>>92187809Has Motorola given up on the Canadian market? Motorola.ca has worse pricing with fewer models than motorola.com. Same thing on amazon.ca and amazon.com
>>92187771I will buy them as long as they have keep the headphone jack and sd slot
>>92186921The answer is obvious. Sony
>>92189353>>92189480Magisk hides root. My bank apps work fine
Is there a device that can push phone calls/text messages from my phone to a small device that just sets off an alarm/readout of the text?I don't want to have to take my phone with me to my room at night, so a small device that just forwards calls/texts to it would be great.Bonus points if there's some alarm clock that does this.Thanks in a van.

>>92186794are there any decent launchers? one UI looks like cancer
>>92189481I won't say given up but it is certainly neglected. It is often an afterthought to the North American team. The scheduled sales prices are terrible compared to the US and won't be getting better any time soon. Strategically there isn't much of a focus on making big changes for Canada.

>>92189932By the way I use Documents’ browser to download and organize stuff in its own library but it there some sort of Youtube variant in the Altstore that could do that? Download straight away?
>>92189353Zigisk takes care of that.That being said, there really aren't many reasons to root anymore.
>>92190464I literally just told you. Brave or SW-DLT.
What's the best mobile browser and why is it Iceraven?
>>92188835There aren't any meaningful upgrades for the casual smartphone user. Just buy whatever you like and you'll be fine
>>92188835Install Lineage or CalyxOS to get rid of the bloatware and use less ram and memry storage (more privacy too!). The battery life will improve too since a lot of spooky trackers tap on your sensors wich drains the battery a lot.
>>92189973Nova launcher is old and reliable and I've heard good things about Lawnchair launcher, either way it's an improvement over stock samshit. You should check/ask /wg/ for advice though, they usually have a ricing general up.
I need a DAC for my S23, any good ones? Please no snakeoil.
>>92191278Apple usb-c dongle
>>92191307But I heard it has volume issues
>>92188994For me the biggest advantage of root is being able to backup/restore any app and its data whenever I want. I use swiftbackup to backup shit directly to my nextcloud instance so if I ever lose my phone or it breaks I don't lose any data. And sometimes I just want to downgrade apps and I can do that too
>>92191311I heard that's only on the version for the EU market thanks to regulations, given the phone I assumed you were from the USA.
>>92191516Do you have them?Yeah I know about US and EU thing. But android fixes the DAC volume at half and you can't change that.
>>92191278>>92191516Unless you're using full sized headphones, US apple dongle is still very loud.
>>92187083Galaxy S22 series is also affected, but not the S21. It just reinforces the perception that I have that the S22 is a straight downgrade to the S21.Thank god the S23 caught up.
God, Android is such hot garbage. I can't create symlinks without root. Now how will I get TachyiomiSY to read the same local folder as regular Tachyiomi?
>>92188282must be hard being a Motorola employee since the Lenovo acquisition.

Good morning fellas, should I upgrade to the pixel 7a when it launches or should I stick with my trusty pixel 6?
>>92189751You could probably repurpose a smart watch to do that. I'm certain that some of those have that functionality built-in.
>>92192144buy a Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra
why have a whole general just for the iphone? There's no reason to get anything else.

What's better between an old flagship and a new mid range phone?
>Look up S23 review>It's just some woman gushing over how the iPhone is betterApple really has this market by the balls. I swear in America most women and zoomers have one.
I want a new phone but it's overwhelming with so many models with different pros and cons, can you guys just tell me your favorite ones?never had an iphone, should I try it? I used to root my phones and experiment with roms but now I don't care about thatjust want something that loads apps fast, takes good photos/videos and has a good screen, plus any nice features
>>92195016why even read reviews when you want to stay in your filter bubble?
>>92193279nakadashi impregnate and marry yayoi-chan
>>92186794who's that anime chick
>>92195021i had an iphone for about 3-4 years, up until later last year. i hated it. day 1 back on android and it felt like i was back home again. iphones lack a lot of basic features that android has (example, i can set an alarm for a specific day on android but iphone only lets you set it for up to 7 days in advance (such as today being monday and you can set the alarm for friday)). iphones also have some stupid shit where turning off the auto rotating screen only locks it in portrait mode. its basic quality of life like that on android that makes me really appreciate android.
>>92186921I have a base galaxy s23 256gb. I like it, and i think most other people wouldDo you have any particular features that you want so we can be more precise when giving you phone advice?
I just found out how to get free phone service through boost mobile.1. Get their 100/yr 1GB plan2. Download the Boost One app3. Open the app every single day, spin the wheel, and watch 1 ad. Do not miss a day. You'll gain approximately 33.42 cents off of your bill per day (avg over 1 week), which is $122 per year, more than enough to cover the entire bill. It should take no more than 3 minutes to complete this, you can do it while you're on the shitter.
>>92195021the new samsungs are the best phones on the market
>>92195362whats the difference between the s22 and s23? i got an s22 because they had an extremely good trade in deal that cost me damn near nothing to upgrade. one of the things i still really miss from old phones is the 3.5mm headphone jack.
any good guides on learning to fix phones?ive got a few 'broken' oneplus 6t phones that could probably be converted to a decent laptop
>>92194619New midrange is better. Older flagships will mysteriously stop working sooner regardless of condition.
>>92195021Get an A52S, I got mine second hand for 65000 argentine pesos (~160 USD).
>>92195599Poor as fuck broLike i have to mooch off other people just to get by, and i have 2 jobs. I literally only have $1500 in my account right now. I'm literally a slave. I have to do so much shit just to be able to save a single dollar.
>>92195727i need to know how you are spending your money for you to only have $1500 while working 2 jobs. show me how bad you are at saving.
>>92195789I need to know how good he is at saving to have $1500 in the bank while being poor lmao
>>921946191-2 year old flagship is the smartest choice - still top hardware with all the major bugs known and official/unofficial support quality documented. This is why upper midrange phones are a hard sell these days. For budget-midrange you'd have to go with an older flagship and then the midranger is better.>>92195016If she was comparing it to the 14, she's absolutely right.
>>92195789My rent is $2400/mo utilities not included. All other expenses total to around $800-1000/mo if i buy everything myself. I have no credit cards, no loans whatsoever, and I shop at walmart, buying only walmart brand as much as possible. I am paid $15/h working at McDonalds and as a part time janny for an elementary school. All other apartments in the area are more expensive. I have no hope of getting into any sort of trade because I can't save up nor have the time for the education needed.
>>92195016>Paid review with less than 100k views>By the ballsWhatever Rajeev
>>92195021>just want something that loads apps fast, takes good photos/videos and has a good screen, plus any nice featuresIphone is great these days, no need to shy away if you want something simpler but very competent. If you prefer to stick to Android, Xiaomi 13 and Pixel 7 Pro are at the top of that "just werks" game.
>>92195016As a previous iphone 13 pro user i must say she sounds retarded. S23 is better in almost every single way. You'll have to be a coping itard to ever think otherwise
>>92164632I’m sorry I’m too dumb for this. The link leads to nowhere to me and I have no idea how to do it. Furthermore the iChan I find needs me to subscribe to patreon lest I find a way to compile the open sourced filesSo the only way I know and am trying to do is via the Altstore but apparently the Altstore expires periodically. In that case would the iChan stay working? Or would I have to do it all over again?If you guys know any way to compile the files or to install the 4chan X script instead on Safari I’m all up for it
>>92196095move somewhere else. you have the jobs of someone in the hood, but likely arent living in the hood if your rent is $2400/mo. do you see where i am going with this?
>>92196265Your options are paying for Patreon for self updating and no maintenance via TestFlight. Or, messing around with AltStore and renewing while connected to a computer every 7 days (or less). Personally I love iChan so I pay for pro even though I'm on Android now. You get cloud notifications for one example. The other main one I've heard about is Chance Imageboard Browser, it may have a TestFlight that you don't have to pay for. But as we've seen with every free client, there's no incentive for the dev to keep working on it. Eventually they get bored and abandon it like Clover or its many forks.
should i get redmi note 9 pro or galaxy A70???
>get a samsung>open camera>refuses to work unless I give it permission to acces Nearby DevicesThis is stupid as fuck.
>>92196960you got something to hide?
>>92191278>>92191516>>92191550I have the apple usb-c dongle, US version. On my android, i'd say the maximum volume is about 25-30% quieter, so still plenty loud.

>>92186794>samsung literally allows you to disable the moon post-processing>the option has always been there in one ui>retards and rebbitors still bark about it for upboats and clickbaits
>>92196960werks on my maschine
>>921969600I found some workarounds for this. If your device supports it, you can download Expert Raw from the Galaxy Store. This will take still photos without requiring "Nearby devices" permission. However it doesn't seem to be able to do selfies because there seems to be no way to switch cameras, and it can't do movies or many of the extra tricks that the full camera app can do.Another option is to run the camera app with Bluetooth disabled. Then it can have its "Nearby devices" permission, but it can't use it. The problem with this is that if you use Bluetooth at other times you have to remember to disable it and enable it.So I wrote a tiny app which disables Bluetooth, runs the camera app, and restores the previous enabled or disabled state of Bluetooth when the camera app exits. I put this on my home screen instead of the camera app: it has the same icon. You have to remember to exit properly from the camera app using the Back button: the Home or Recents buttons leave my app and the camera app sitting on the task's back stack, so my app doesn't get to run and restore the Bluetooth state.
Pixel 7 Pro and Zenfone 9 are on sale for like -20% (600-650 USD converted from my currency) at a shop near me, is it worth going for one of these or should I hold out for Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 or the iPhone 15? I'm not buying a Samsung, I don't like their company for unrelated reasons.
>>92196402Alright I suppose being a beggar means I can’t ve a chooser
>>92197231IMO im really intrigued by the rumored titanium chassis iphone 15. its been rumoured for a few years now but theyre really going all in this year with a whole redesign (usbc, sideloading, harder material, thinnest bezels on the market)
>>92197231the Zenfone 9 uses the 8+ G1 so its good. >iPhone 15never iPhone. Toy OS
What is the modern equivalent of moto g5
>>92197277I was interested in the iPhone bc I hate using cases and Apple started a marketing campaign about how they're designed to not need cases anymore but I'm not sure how much to buy into their claims.Most iPhone users I googled only kept their phone for 2-3 yrs, but I keep my phones for 5-7 yrs, so I'm skeptical about battery life and how well the performance holds up over time.>>92197302Gap between G1 and G2 not that big?I was looking into it a lot of people were acting like G2 was super revolutionary.
>be me>chud>can download favorite 3rd party doujin hentai manga app>this makes the operating system professional and productiverofl.
>>92197315It is. The fact that 8g1 doesn't have av1 decoding alone should be enough for you to avoid that SoC in this day and age.
>>92197315well battery life wise, batteries decay within 2 years usually so you should replace them around that time in ANY phone. there has been zero progress in battery technology not counting charger cable improvements for bottlenecked charging. ~ you can keep your iphone for 5 years easy, the iphone 8 plus released 2017 is still getting updates today. Whole major update redesigns too.
Eurocucks totally fucked nowhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNVo6EfmhyQ
>>92197397Would it be incorrect to think that higher base battery life = longer longevity because it started from a higher point?I have a Xiaomi Mi 6 right now and it was only in the last year that I started to notice a full charge going under 1 work day + commute of usage, how do iPhones compare to that after the 5+ year mark?
>>92196095>My rent is $2400/mo utilities not included.Anon what the fuckMove somewhere else, nobody deserves that kind of hell
>>92197480If you want Xiaomi-tier battery health, your only option is another Xiaomi. Base battery capacity only plays a role to an extent, if the phone is well-optimized it will use the battery more efficiently, reducing your frequency of charging it and in turn the number of charge cycles which is primarily kills the battery.
>>92197397>well battery life wise, batteries decay within 2 years usually so you should replace them around that time in ANY phonenot trueIf you take care of your battery it can last you well over 10 years. Samsung lets you limit charging to 85% for this reason.Personally I had my phone for over a year and only have ~33 cycles on the battery
>>92187078Whats so good about it?
>>92197576Are they really that good? I haven't heard good things about the company recently and I would've assumed other companies would've caught up to them in battery life by now.
>>92197720They've been putting fast-charging batteries in everything from budget to top models for years now so you'd be hearing about any issues by now. Others are largely playing catch-up by sticking to slow charging speeds and software-limiting to preserve battery. Oppo/Vivo also boast some strong battery specs, but I'm not familiar with their phones.
>>92197315>Gap between G1 and G2 not that big?It is, but the zenfone 9 uses the 8+ G1, a much better chip than the regular 8 G1. Of course the Gen 2 is even better.
>>92197614Is there a F-droid alternative to this app
>>92197480actually >>92197614is right. iOS has a feature called optimized battery charging (opt-out) which will help you keep your battery for several years as you want.
>>92189751bro that ain't zapdos
>>92191794S20 was fine.
>>92197231Zenfone 9 for sure.
>>92197128Most people in general are clueless about how computational photography and AI enhancements work. These people are so stupid that to them, finding out that the software alters the picture was like a revelation for them. It's like, yeah, no shit of course it does, every single phone does this The worst is when these stupid people throw around accusations and regurgitate bullshit without actually knowing what they are talking aboutThis "Fake moon scandal" just reminded us how clueless and stupid the "Average consumer" is
>>92198594okay but why
>>92198706Dude chill it's not something as sophisticated as computational photography. It's literally slapping an image of a moon onto a moon-looking object. People were right to call Samsung out for this - it's bad practice not to disclose how your software actually works while bragging that it does something which it evidently is not capable of. It's similar to when Huawei was caught for using DSLR images for their promo shots, except this time it's baked into the device's "AI".

>>92197614>lets you limit charging to 85% for this reason.Never knew about this feature. Feel like an idiot now
>>92198868It has Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 which is the best chipset out right now. SD 888 (found in S21) and SD 8 Gen 1 (found in S22) have battery efficiency issues. If you want a headphone jack and SD card slot, check out the Sony Xperia 1 and 5 series.

>>92188863My nigga dlsr's are not that expensive on the low end. Very very few top tier phones actually have a decent cam. Most of it is just post processing garbage. It's why normies ranked the pictures taken on the Xperia IV in 2022 last because they've been conditioned into liking unrealistic post processed pics.
>>92196383>>92197488>No credit card>Cant get a loan>Barely scraping by with only 1500 in the account>Just move broI dont think either of you understand his financial position. This is also how you get "enslaved" by rent and credit in modern day america. And why homeless people exists with a job. This nigga is gonna be homeless once he moves unless he can find a job immediately. He's gonna have to move out of that city/state entirely. Suburbs around such a place isnt affordable either usually, not to mention that he wont be able to buy a car.
>>92202722Waiting for a flagship to bring back headphone jack + sd card slot.Sony has shown that neither make it impossible to waterproof it or make the phone too thick. It's just jews copying apple who did that move to sell airpods. Because how else do you force someone to buy your shitty overpriced bluetooth earbuds. Same with sd card expansion slots. How else were they gonna sell you storage for all the pics and videos?I fucking hated the gooks at LG mobile department for fucking their entire business. Probably got in by sheer nepotism and bribery as usual in SK. How else could they not know to make a normal line of steady income phones and separate it from a line of gimmick new test feature phones. Imagine if the Galaxy 23 was a foldable phone and the Fold didnt exist.
>>92202604he doesnt necessarily have to have money to move. im assuming he doesnt have much to move if he doesnt have money. i type this while also imagining that he just blows all his extra money on a lot of stupid shit, so he will complain about not having the money to move with all of it. >>92203267the assumption is that he will find another place to stay, or another job before moving. he has time to post here, which means he has time to find another option.
>>92202759Simple calendar is pretty much peak, you might have to mess with the settings to tune it to your liking tho, especially the color palletteEtar is barebones but is shipped with lineage
>>92203648>Imagine if the Galaxy 23 was a foldable phone and the Fold didnt exist.Horrible.
>>92198532>S20 was fine.>Exynos 990Kek >>92197670The battery life, the 30x zoom, the screen, the speakers, the size, the powerful and efficient processor. Everything is good about it. Finally they gave the whole world tsmc Snapdragon after many years with exynos garbage. The phone feels just so premium i love it. Makes my iPhone 13 pro feel like a early access prototype
>>92203933>Simple calendar is pretty much peakYeah it's pretty good but are some bugs with sync and other stuff that make it unreliable for me.
what cheap phone should I get that is a small form factor? i'm a twink btw
Well, that's the second phone I've broken in 2 months.Is there actually anything that can survive a small drop nowadays?I miss flip phones. ;_;
>>92205430The only option is iphone

>>92205768those are cheap?>>92205785i'll look into it, thanks
>>92205981>are iPhones cheap?Surprisingly, they can be. Pic rel. you’re just going to have to buy second hand. >pro tip: all gooks handle your phone in manufacturing shipping and handling with poor hygiene Just wipe it down with Clorox wipes in delivery day. Id say go for anything newer than the 12. Avoid the SE if you consider yourself tech savvy (you’ll need more battery) XR/XS onward works fine too though. I have an XR and it can handle games no problem max fps. We’ve come a long way with phone technology: the meta is to buy an older flagship over a current year budget midline phone.
I want a Mini phone.
>>92205868So am I just not buying good enough cases then?
>>92205430Galaxy S23 Ultra
>>92205430S23 base model

>>92186794What's a good and cheap portable charger?
>>92206436Eh rugged shield cases on aliexpress are a specific brand of tpu case. Pretty god tier and don't turn into jelly like sprigens

>>92207111Spigen is the biggest fucking garbage. Even their liquid air is slippery as shit and barely provides any protection... I tried them all except their transparent one
>>92207295Yeah and after about 3 years of use they turn into an oily gunky mess for some reason. The powder coat decomposes weird
>>92207674Just China gutter oil chemicals
>kiwi updatedwasnt expecting that. good shit
>>92207674>>92207295What brand do you guys recommend?t. Spigen case user. Shit was only 15$.
>>92207837Spigen is fine. Ive had the tough armor and dropped my phone several times on concrete,tile etc and protected my phone.
>>92207674>complains that a ~$20 dollar phone case goes to shit after 3 years
>>92207915>Dropped my phone several timesAnd you did that because spigen is slippery shit
>>92207990Wouldn't say the tough armor is slippery at all. Can't speak for their other cases.
t>>92205699Buy a phone with a plastic back and slap a halfway decent TPU case on it.My Poco F1 has gone through tons of abuse with very minor damage.
>>92207975Yet 3 dollar rugged armor cases on ali have lasted longer. Literally who spends more than 20 bucks on a phone case?Whoever charges that much really deserves dat grift $
>>92207837Search rugged armor case on aliexpress. A no named brand that's actually a really solid design, kind of looks like a hand grenade
if you're not looking to spend a thousand dollars, are previous versions of the s23 still decent?is there a scaled down version for much less cash
>>92203267He probably lives in a big city like NYC or LA but both places have cheaper options to live in in other cities.

https://www.gsmarena.com/realme_8_pro-10809.phpI've had a realme 8 pro since release or near enough release, its been a great phone and it was quite cheap, runs everything I want well, no bother about it, what does /spg/ think?
>>92203648True but the detachable 2nd screen the V series became known for was optional and sold separately. Plus I don't think they advertised for it that hard.
>>92205430Xcover 5. You can get it for $150 on ebay.
>>92206223>>92206244That's how much you can get back for selling an iPhone, not how much iPhones actually cost. Stop spreading misinformation.
>>92208766>is there a scaled down version for much less cashWait for the S23 FE later this year.
>>92208766S20 FE and S21 FE are still pretty good.
>>92186794why xiaomeme phone full of ads
Which one of these is the most recommended one? I can't use AdAway on this non-rooted phone.
>>92209353>>92209339if I wanted to spend less than $200,. moto g power, or one of the A's? or s7 or what?
>>92209836None of these, NextDNS if you want a dns solution, otherwise, trackercontrol
>>92209847A14 is pretty good. If you can manage to spend $100 more, try >A52s or A52 5G>Moto G82 or G100>Xperia 10 IV
>>92209859Is using a DNS other than my ISP's (using NextDNS) practically the same as using those VPN solutions?Somehow it feels more invasive using a 3rd party DNS than routing my network traffic through Blokada for example.Actually now that I wrote this out, both sounds very intrusive. I am not sure. Am I missing something or overreacting?
>>92209146I was reading gsmarena comments earlier on one of Realme's newer models and it was mentioned as being their last good phone, before they started recycling or downgrading specs. I wish I bought one...
When are Sony going to reveal their V phones
>>92210176Funnily enough I used to have an Oukitel K10, or something around that time that pretty much had the same situation happen where I looked at the new phones and saw that they were all shitty or mostly the same for a higher price tag than my older phone, I guess thats a thing in china where they start just making garbage once they realize they've made a phone thats too good? Confusing really.
>>92210150Blokada and such filter the traffic locally, on your phone. They create a pseudo-vpn so that traffic passes through it and it can accept/block domains on the fly, but essentially it all happens on your phone. The DNS solutions, well, do you trust your glowie ISP DNS more than NextDNS? That's up to you. I personally don't and choose to use it.
>>92207116Yeah, I'm using lawnchair but the problem was still there after switching back to the default.
What are some good phones in the 200 usd range. Family member broke the screen on their nord n20 5g and all the repair shops quote around 150-200 for the replacement which seems kinda gay. Might as well get a new one. But all the phones in that range seem wastly inferior to nord n20.
>>92203844first & last month's rent, deposit, moving expenses. that can be a big hit for they of little bank.
>>92195362> Do you have any particular features that you want so we can be more precise when giving you phone advice?It must be new (because 8 gen 1 is a bad processor, I need exactly 8 gen2 or mtk 9200)I want to have autofocus on a wide-angle camera, laser autofocus if possible.The smartphone should not be worse than the OnePlus 9 pro that I have now.
>>92209389All chinkphones are full of ads that's part of the reason why they would sometimes sell these phones (especially entry level ones) at cost or even lowervp0hgr

any other comparabke to ipad mini and samsung a7 lite? my use case is only for reading and youtube but im still deciding do i really need 4k viewing on my device? if not probably ill get samsung or another
>>92187162>typical snoy tranny
Anons, need a used phone for under 100 goy bux. Thoughts about pixel 4a? Other options are 3xl, 3, 4 and 3a. Should I spend extra and get the 6a or spend more and get the 7? My head is spinning. My primary phone is Poco F1, just need a secondary phone.
>>92211918Don't get tabs anon, no one develops apps for it, can't get parts or fix it. If you insist on getting raped get an Ipad and be done with it. But be ready to gargle Apple's cum and to like it.
I have Samsung X Cover 4.Should I upgrade?Is there anyhing valuable I'm missing by using this phone?
Bought the Realme 9SE for $230 a week ago. Had to revert to android 11 from 12 after massive issues. After debloating the builtin adware it's giving 7 hour screen on time with about 2 hour of gaming. Set to 144hz, battery "optimizations" all off and brightness 88%. Really smooth with zero stutters.My last phone was a dinosaur from 2014, I am impressed by this one's battery life. Are all the current phones this good?
>>92211602Zenfone 9 or wait for the Xperias for this year.
>>92212270Pixel 4a is fine.
>>92213596Danke anon. I love the headphone jack, its a nice bonus.
>>92186794I'm considering replacing my aging S9+ which is starting to fail everywhere. I'm looking at second hands Xperia 1 IIIs that can be found for 500$ in "brand new" condition. Any other phone in this price range I should look for ? I plan on degoogling the fucker

>>92213655>Any other phone in this price range I should look for ?Not really. Go for it.
Anyone got some more solid info about Poco F5 and Poco F5 Pro coming this year? Are those two getting released together, or is it X3 and X3 Pro situation again when they have like a half a year (or was it more?) gap between them? I'm planning to upgrade my X3 Pro to OnePlus Ace 2V (or Nord 3 if they really are gonna just call it that on global release), but just found some info about F5 series coming. From what I saw in terms of CPU used F5 (Snap 7 gen1) is worse than 1+ (Mediatek 9000), Pro is around comparable (Snap 8 gen1), but then there is possibility F5 will get a 7 gen2 instead? That's where my sources are becoming muddy. I still think 1+ is the safest bet here, but maybe someone can clarify some things.
>>92213655>Xperia 1 IIIGood god, Sony's naming scheme is catastrophically bad. And they are still doing those meme 4k phones? What's the fuckin point on a 6.5inch screen.
So the s23 ultra it is?The best android phone money can buy?
Is there a us based phone like fairphone?
I got a Galaxy s71 and it is my first entry in smart phones. Any app or service I should disable and or delete? Thanks

>>92214887Why resist? Just go for it. Literally nothing compelling about the iPhone rn.
>>92187162i had this with nova launcher happening on my xperia 5 ii. going into the settings and setting it back to the xperia launcher 'unstuck' it for me.
>>92214450Yep. The base model is basically the equivalent to iPhone 14 Pro except better
>>92213569Im praying that Sony doesnt fuck up the 1 V or upgrades the 5 V to be less of a downgrade screenwise from the 1 V.
>>92215674Got used to Applel ecosystem too much. Everything just works, everything is where it needs to be, it'll be too much effort to move back to another system and get used to it. Even my personal email is @icloud.com.
>>92216680Wow so smart! I could never actually smash my Apple devices with a fucking hammer!!! I love apple!!
>>92216680>Everything just worksMan IPhone's must be garbage if thats your only reason. Everything just works on 100$ shit phones too. I never had a phone where everything doesn't just work except for my iphone and the buggy ass keyboard sounds and shit thermals

>>92213569> Zenfone 9It won't satisfies my request and won't much of an upgrade from OnePlus 9 pro. In fact, it's downgrade.> wait for the Xperias for this year.Nah.It will be ~$2000 here for 1 V, I think.I will buy Vivo x90 pro plus or oppo find x6 pro.

Maybe not too related but I don't want to make a thread for it and it's Android anywaysCan someone recommend me a good nice OLED tablet for watching media in bed on that's not an iPad or Samsung tablet?Right now I'm considering the Tab S8+ even though it's expensive as fuck and probably way more than I need so I'm looking for some alternatives.Screen quality is the most important thing by far, as long as it's powerful enough to do basic web browsing and streams I'm fine.
>>92212406>no one develops apps for itYou know android apps will just work on it right? Its not 2013 where apps on tablets would be stretched out and fucked. I have a shitty lenovo tablet and a base ipad and the former is much more useful in browsing and media consumption. iPads are giants memes unless all you do is stream netflix/hbo etc on it, and you're forced to use brave if you want adblock, and still isnt half as good as ublock
Just got a Samsung s10e for a 105€ at an ebay auction, did i get a good deal? will i be able to rrot it and install a good version of android on it?Will i be able to play current gacha or even COD smoothly?
Anyone here have a Unihertz phone? I've been wanting a phone with a physical keyboard for a while now but I'm still using my Moto G Power that I bought 3 years ago and usually don't replace my phones until they no longer work. But I hate typing with the on-screen keyboard. I'm wondering if I should gett a pocket as a trial run and see if it's for me. But the titan slim or regular titan would be a phone I would want permanently.
>>92189353Did you have any problems with GrapheneOS?
>>92220679Interesting’ can you take it apart? What’s inside. I wanna scrap it.
>>92220679If you somehow managed to grab a non-EU model, which I doubt, you'd be in luck. SD 855 chipset is decently capable in current year even for games. The Exynos they put in EU models was prone to running hot even in normal use.
>>92221136it doesnt say but i heavily doubt its not the shitty euro model, the seller is from munich, but how much shittier can the eu model be?If i dont game for like more than an hour would it shit itself? how much would the small battery last me?>>92221022what are you even talking about

I can't find a suitable upgrade.My XZ1 Compact works great. Battery health is 95% even after all these years which is surprising, and the form factor or rather the width of the phone fits my hand perfectly.I tried the newer Xperia 5 models but I didn't like how fucking long it was.I even got an iPhone 13 Mini, which has the same dimensions as the XZ1 Compact, but I just fucking couldn't get myself to like iOS.FUCK

Apparently my phone works with miracast and isn't compatible with chromecast, I want to mirror my screen to my tv but it just won't do. There are a bunch of paid apps on the play store that work, before messing with mods and cracked stuff, isn't there any underground app that does this? Like youtube revanced and smart tube and the likes
>>92221806Well then have fun using your Xperia until the end of time because you're not going to get anything better in a compact form
>>92221790A52s dethroned it m8
>>92221356>but how much shittier can the eu model be?Everyone I know that has/had one of the S10 series experienced random overheating. That being said it's still an epic model, the last good small Samsung. I'd try replacing the battery with a new one if you find it inadequate.
I've done some cursory searches but I wasn't able to find a conclusive answer. Does Android 12 (or up) support using F2FS on an external SD card? Note that I said EXTERNAL, search engines seem to have a hard time grasping that part. Ideally the dumb method of mounting it as a seperate storage, not like I'd have a choice for filesystems when it comes to adoptable storage.
best phone for around ~250 aussie dollars? (~170USD) only use maps and spotify really, my current phone lags like hell using these lol
