What is the best android phone I could buy for $500 or under?
>>93675053I have it, I really don't know what I was expecting from the phone. It has nothing really relevant, nothing to distinguish it if you don't use a WIN system to complement it. It works just like any other android phone, it just comes with Thinkphone branding stuck to the back and you have some logic controls from microphone and camera use for applications.Curious really. Thinkpad was defined during its golden age as part of IBM by being highly customizable, maintainable and upgradeable systems, very much in resonance with the GNU spirit giving the user as much control and durability as possible, but today in 2023, the brand is following the same market trend as all its competitors.By the way the transparent casing it comes with is extremely flimsy. I haven't done a month with the phone and that embeddable protection is all cracked.

I have a -2500 google pay balance from someone (im guessing a fraudulent scammer) sending me money then charging it back, this happened in 2019 and I forgot about it because I was either using samsung pay or apple pay and google didn't bother me about it, I was able to still buy things using my google account. Should I be worried about it?
>>93676600It seems strange to me that it took them this long to try it. I feel like it would've made sense when Windows Phones were still a thing. I watched some videos about it, and the most unique thing seemed to be interactivity with Windows, but use cases seem pretty limited. It also seems to stuck in a no-mans-land where it's not good enough to be a flagship, but costs too much to be a value phone.

>>93674056would reducing the refresh rate down to 60hz maybe help with the lag?

any good motorola midranges?
>>93678632Depends on what kind of deal you can get. The 7A is significantly better than the 6A, but it all depends on your wallet. You will be supported for a year longer on the 7A as well.

After using 23 Ultra for 2-3 hours, I must say, it's a great phone.The thing is, it still feel very minor update coming from Oneplus 7 Pro. What I mean by that, it still feels 95% the same phone I had before. Why is Android stagnating?

Why are Pixels battery life so bad bros? Is Google using low quality cells? The SD8 Gen2 is a much more powerful chip but still has better battery life.
>>93684849Even Xiaomi with all the CCP spyware still has better battery life.

What's the point of a phone having 100% battery when everyone is telling you to charge it to 80% only to conserve the battery?
>>93685523You are supposed to never charge it over 80% and never discharge it below 30%, you are practically using only 50% of the battery.
>>93685523ignore the battery conservation goyslops, just use 100% of your battery and milk it dry until it's time to upgrade, it will last years anyway
>>93684890Xiaomi's MIUI severely limits background processing of pretty much every app. If you like delayed notifications and malfunctioning apps, be my guest and buy one. Many app FAQs will attest to this, and tell you to add exceptions which doesn't always work. It's basically iOS.
>>93685540>m-m-maybe if I use half of my battery's capacity it'll have 80% health in 6 years instead of 4don't be like this chud not making use of his phone, you'll wanna upgrade by then anyway.
>>93685582>I MUST CONSOON! Still using my I9300 Galaxy S III
>>93685580this is out of topic, that's not why it has better battery life obviously, you're comparing the pixel's shitxynos with an sd8g2 which does not only have twice the performance but way better efficiency too.
>>93685623Xiaomi has better battery than phones with identical or nearly identical hardware. They do it by decimating background tasks, delaying notifications and often outright breaking software like Termux. If you want that, go for it, but don't act like it is for everyone.
>>93684492The only fag here is you

>>93686006Is the difference caused by LTPO vs non-LTPO OLED?
>>93684849It's modem slurps power which is why the standby power is garbage. This also worsens SOT in web browsing and watching videos as modem power usage is constant

How do I get better multitasking performance out of my phone? It's a TCL, but has 3GB ram so I don't understand why I can't switch out of an app for 15 seconds without it reopening from the beginning when I go back. Sometimes it's so bad that the phone won't play videos, local or streamed
>>93687709>but has 3GB ramThat's probably why
>>93687740Is this not enough? I've gotten better performance out of a 2GB phone so Chinese that the captive portal test URL is google.cn . I can understand why apps like telegram or mull browser don't stay alive but I feel like I should be able to text someone without interrupting a background tachiyomi download. It's rooted, if that explains anything or provides more solutions
>>93688032Shit, now you have me looking as well. It's the latest of the the Tab series to have official LineageOS support.

There is no demand for them, no one buys them. I only hear the cries of autistic people about compact smartphones, but I never see anyone who would buy compact smartphones.

>>93690596> Which brands still include a charger in their box? All normal brands.If your list of normal brands consists of Samsung, Apple and Sony, then this is your problem. All Chinese brands still put charer and cable.Some, or at least most, are also puting a case.

Nobody buys compacts. Never. Nowhere. Everyone is whining about them, but no one is buying.Apple suffered losses with to 12-13 mini, which is almost impossible to do with their margin of 300+ bucks per device.https://www.cnet.com/google-amp/news/after-iphone-13-its-not-looking-good-for-apple-iphone-mini/You will find sales of iPhones by models yourself. PROMAX PROMAX PROMAXDue to the general crisis of the industry and double-digit inflation, the Chinese have already begun to cut the lineups of screens to only 6.7.That is, we will see absolutely identical phones in the next model year.Why did it happen? But because if you are a beggar/pajeet/russian, then you have one portable device. As a rule, its the phone. You don't have a laptop or tablet then. This means that you need a large device to consume content. Well, normies have already realized that the phone is a two-handed device. No one lives in a reality of iPhone 4 and does not type imessages with one hand.That is, there is no marketing niche for cheap compacts, and no one needs expensive compacts.But then another thing comes into play. A compact smartphone is hard to make. It need special equipment, you can't use standard components, you need to think about the layout of the device. This cost money. This drastically increases the cost of design and production.
>>93678356Try turn off 5g. Even S23 heats up a bit in the sprint weather with 5g. 5g is only good because it free's up the 4g network making it way more stable.

>>93691082>But then why do we need 5GWe don't. It's still got a long way to go before it gets efficient enough to not make your device worse. I turned mine off on my S23 and now I only need to charge my phone one time during my work day where I use google maps for many hours. With 5g on I needed to charge it 2-3 times.

>>93692010> They don't buy new phone every few years because there are none to buy.Many have already tried to make compact smartphones, each time it turned out unsuccessfully. There's no point in trying again.> Explain why they need to put latest flagship soc Because a compact smartphone with a mid-range SoC will cost as a flagship due to production costs. No one will buy it.> Nobody makes a compact budget phone with reasonable specsIt is impossible to make something that consists of non standard components without increasing the price. A smartphone with RN11 specifications will cost $600-700. No one will buy such a phone.> No I suggest making redmi and galaxy A series models that are small with midrange specs. Then they will have a flagship price.> Why don't they make a middle groundBecause the development costs are huge. If you don't try to make a big profit, then you will remain at a loss.Even iPhones with their huge profits were left at a loss.

>>93692193> My sidesI am an engineer and I understand that creating a new device is a very expensive venture.Especially if this device should not be very typical - contain some solutions that are not used everywhere.Most Chinese smartphones consist of standard modules, standard chassis and all that. You can pay attention, this is especially noticeable with the BBC, where Oppo, Vivo, Oneplus use the same chassis for several smartphones.If you need to use a non-standard chassis, it costs money in terms of development. A small chassis will require its own assembly line customized for this small chassis. It costs money. A small chassis will require atypical components. Their development will also cost money.As a result, it turns out that a bunch of huge RND requirements, assembly requirements and all for what? For nothing. There is no market for compact and cheap smartphones because cheap smartphones are mostly bought by poor people, which means they need a big smartphone because they don't have a PC/console/laptop.
>>93693475> What's the best phone to get that supports official Lineage OS? I broke my S10e so need something ASAPYou can play a game with cutting off the head of a chicken, because it is not known which smartphone will pajeets like and they will make customizations for.
>>93693981You can go to the lineage site and see which devices are supported.
>>93694016> You can go to the lineage site and see which devices are supported.And discover that there are no NEW devices there. That is, there is no official lineage for NEW devices yet, which means that it is only being MADE. That is, you need to play a guessing game.
what's a good midrange phone with a snapdragon processor?
>>93694116>Poco F5fuck, I have verizon which doesn't allow xiaomi phones and I can't switch. Any alternatives or workarounds?Can I just plop my old sim card into it?
I have a s23 plus lads... am I cool or a faggot?
>>93694135>Can I just plop my old sim card into it?You'd have to check with them, I am not from the US so I have never experienced this issue. Don't they have a phone whitelist in their website to check?
>>93693948I think this post will be ignored.
>>93694135> I have verizon which doesn't allow xiaomi phones and I can't switchAre you a slave to your carrier?
>>93694196> Don't they have a phone whitelist in their website to check?But why? For what reason? I don't understand.
>>93693948>I am an engineerListen, I know you are special but leave the phone talk to the adults
>>93694371Don't ask me, like I said, I am not from the US.
>>93692193>it cost less than 500ofc nigga it's a binned 8g1 chip retarf
>mutts are so down bad they need approval from their carrier just to use a fucking phoneholy fucking christ
Mi9T died.I've been looking around and come to the consclusion the A52s is the best pick in that 300-350€ price range.Pixel 6a screen seems subpar and the battery life shit. Poco X5 Pro updates don't convince me.If someone has any other suggestion it would be appreciated.
>Factory Unlocked cell phones are compatible with most GSM carriers. This phone is not compatible with CDMA carriers(Verizon, Sprint, Straight Talk, Tracfone, Simple).its over for xiaomicels
>>93694707Chinese Xiaomi phones have CDMA
okay, any good samsung or motorola midrange phones? preferably with sd card slot and a decent processor that doesn't lag like shit. Upgrading from an LG G6 btw
>>93694449> Listen, I know you are special but leave the phone talk to the adultsOnce again, no argument. Continue autistic screaming about muh cheap compact phones.
>>93695031Not a single compact midrange phone has been made for many years now. You can't say it won't sell a shit ton when it hasn't been tried with modern specs. You are a faggot who talks out of their ass
Are there any sites I can search and filter phones by screen width (not diagonal, not the whole phone). I can calculate manually from the aspect ratio and diagonal size but it's annoying to do for every one of them.Anyway, I'm upgrading from an LG V20 and was hoping to find a new phone with an larger screen width, but apparently they don't exist. Literally the only thing I found was the S23ultra being only slightly wider at 7.3cm, compared to the V20's 7.1cm.
>>93695106It won't fucking sell, this is the reality of the market.I am a compact chad(still using a S10e) but sadly compact phones don't sell because normalfags only buy big phones.
>>93695167>It won't fucking sell, this is the reality of the market. Straight out of your ass>I am a compact chad(still using a S10e) but sadly compact phones don't sell because normalfags only buy big phones.They don't have a choice. All I hear from people is they hate the weight or the size. This is real people in public, not fictional ones like you make up in your mind
>>93695235>They don't have a choice.Apple demonstrated this with the mini line. The iPhone 12 and 13 mini sold like shit when compared to the rest of the lineup.
>>93695278>Apple demonstrated this with the mini lineMini is a flagship sold at a flagship price costing 700€ at launch. What part of midrange phone did you not understand? People won't drop 700 for a compact phone when they can keep their current one or buy used. Use your brain for a minute
>>93695106> Not a single compact midrange phone has been made for many years now.I posted few long post why this is so. If we summ it up, such phones do not have a market (because on average poor people buy cheap phones), and such a phone will be expensive due to the high costs of research and development and production. Also, it's niche product, so it will be even more expensive due to low scale economic effects.
>>93694066no shit, cause development takes time ypi don't need a NEW phone.
>>93695106Realme 7 pro128gb, SD card possible, 2 sim cards possible, headphone jack, full recharge in 40 minutes, battery life 2 days & still 4G and not cancer 5GUsing it since 2 years, it's amazing. Also Bought another 2 in almost new condition of ebay as this phone exactly fits my usecase as paranoid traveler so I should be set for at least 5-10 years in case the battery runs out or one breaks down.Ah yes display is 60hz but as I never had one with more I just don't miss anything. Holy grail if you can still find it, try this review:https://www.notebookcheck.net/Realme-7-Pro-Smartphone-Review-Super-fast-charging-and-good-features.503758.0.html
>>93695583>Realme 7 prowhere can you buy this in US?
>mfw I realized under display fingerprint exist cuz if you break your screen you'll have to pay more for OLED screen cuz LCD isn't transparent like OLED
>>93695583nice "compact" phone bwo
>>93695660No they exist because on the back needs you to lift the phone to work and side is the same but also makes you unlock the phone after you hit the power button to turn it off. Under display is simply superior unless you own a pixlel phone
>>93695583>full recharge in 40 minutes,why do you people always fall for this meme.just charge you phone properly.
>>93695694Realme gt master edition was quite compact and has global release. A40 Samsung.And you know what. In both cases they made next version huge.
anyone knows if Vodafone has a lot of bloatware?
Okay final verdict, do I buy a motorola 5G stylus or a Samsung A54 to replace my G6?A54 has more ram but apparently the exynos processor is shit and it comes with too much bloatware.
>>93695731I still prefer side fingerprint sensor cuz picrel
>>93695762> just charge you phone properly.Overnight charging is not charging property.> why do you people always fall for this meme.Because it's more convenient. You plug phone in and in 20 minutes it's ready to go.Most people have phone as their main device already.I'm still searching something to replace my OnePlus 9 pro.>>93695660Noooo not because people like how AMOLED display looks, especially at direct sunlight.But because some autistic weirdo believe in condo theories.>>93695463> ypi don't need a NEW phone.ypi?
>>936958468gb is a must nowadays
>>93695785That's one of the reasons, by the way. You autists don't like things. Normies just buy phone and that's all. But you, don't do that. If they made it 6 inches, then you would say it has weak procesoo6. If it had sd870 you'd say that it's house fire and has small battery.
It seems that there has been barely any advancement in smartphone technology for the last 3 years. When will phone actually be futuristic?
>>93696025its all just iterative improvements for the last 5 yearsall good though, since phones are finally getting better battery life with more efficient displays and socs
used a52s or used s22. i hate buying phones but i also hate wasting money. which one should i get bros?
>>93696025Next few generations, the sd8g3 is gonna start having RDNA2 architecture for its SOC which means we will be getting better and better graphics performance as it progresses
>>93696147s22 if you want a phonea52s if you want a tablet
Got the Pixel 7 here, not too sure about this thing. It gets hot over nothing.
>>93696312You were warned.
>>93696396why it gotta be like this, otherwise it's a nice device. Maybe I'll return it and just stick to my iToy
>>93687709Still hoping for a solution to this if there's one other than "buy a better phone"
>>93696409>why it gotta be like this>buy exyshit>receive exyshit>be annoyed by typical exyshit-behaviourcan't explain that.
I'm still using a Oneplus One that has lasted me almost a decade, I got it back when they were doing invitations, but it's finally falling apart. I'm thinking of taking the plunge on the OnePlus 11... But am I making a horrible mistake somehow?Reviews seems good, but I haven't bought a phone in so long that I don't really trust my decision-making.
>>93696528> OnePlus 11looks ~the same as the first one.It's just that flagships are much cooler now, so I didn't buy it for myself.
>>93696410> Still hoping for a solution to this if there's one other than "buy a better phone"
Are there any 5g feature phones or at least one that isnt shit that can take a major US carrier?
>>93695629It's a couple years old, you can find it on ebay, if you're lucky you'll find a new one for $250Realme 7 pro also has the fasted face unlock and additionally a fingerprint sensor under the display.For me, it's the holy grail. Should fit most /g/ minimalists in the $150-$250 price range while looking and feeling more like $500.
>>93696528it's a solid phone if you can afford it go for it, if you can find the s23 cheaper in your country I'd go for that though
Is the S21 Ultra worth it? I really want one
>>93697606why would you want a phone thats at the end of its life cycle
>>93697729Still has two more years of system updates anon
Need halp bigly, /g/. I was attempting to upgrade TWRP/Magisk on my phone, and now whenever I try to boot into System, it reboots and goes into TWRP instead. At this point I don't care for fixing whatever the issue is, but I really need to backup the data from some open source apps like (NewPipe, OTP+, Orgzly, etc), do a fresh install, and restore the apps' data in the new installation. What are my options here? Should I... A) Perform a backup / restore of App-relevant partitions using TWRP (restore happens on a newer version of Android) B) Find the App data manually using TWRP shell, and back it up / restore manually C) ??? In scenario A), I don't know which partitions I should backup, and I'm a bit confused about the restore process. After restoring, will I have applications installed in my new system, or does that only restore the Application data/cache.Or maybe I'm going about this in a really retarded way, any advice is appreciated
>>93697729It's gonna receive updates for at least 3 more years if you include security updates. That's more than most gonk phones you guys recommend that are brand new
Currently deciding between these three, leaning more towards the find x5. anything i am missing?https://www.kimovil.com/en/compare/google-pixel-7-8gb-256gb,oppo-find-x5,samsung-s21-galaxy-fe-5g-global-8gb-256gb-sm-g990bPixel 7 550€+best camera-only 90hzOppo find x5 420€+fast charging+price-only IP54-shorter supportGalaxy S21 FE (snapdragon) 580€-Worse battery life
>>93697910>Pixel Shityxynos chip>SD 888>SD 888you want none of those.
>>93697933Tensor G2 isn't that bad
>>93697952it's a housefire chip with bad efficiency and one of the worst batt life in the market for the price range, they also have shitty modems and their screens are a few generations old.
Do phones with a headphone jack and SD card support still exists?
>>93698088They do but I'm not telling
>>93698088Yes, look for Sony
>>93698088i think you need to quit being a boomer and get with the times
>>93697933what's wrong with the 888?
>>93696556>>93697066Thanks, I've gone for it. I did take a look at other flagships including the s23 since you mentioned it there, but their advantages were things I wasn't too concerned about like wireless charging and camera zoom, and they were a bit more expensive.
>>93698180House fire made by Samsung
>>93698180CPU is less efficient than the older 865/870 and GPU is a house fire under load, worse than the exynos2100's
>>93698260>worse than the exynos2100'sIt's the other way retard. 888 performs better and they both heat up like housefires
motorola stylus 5g with 8gb ram and 512gb storage worth it at $400?
I am going to keep buying S10es and Pixels 4s until Android manufacturers start releasing decent size phones again.
>>93697933>>93698260>>93698238Could there be a difference between the 888 used by samsung vs oppo?The oppo seems to have a much better battery life despite using the same processor and about the same battery capacity.
>>93698610just get a zenfone 9 and keep it for years, the difference is negligible and the hardware is lightyears ahead.
>>93698631There's no difference, it's just software after that.
>>93697066> it's a solid phone if you can afford it go for it, if you can find the s23 cheaper in your country I'd go for that thoughThe S23 is definitely worse than the OnePlus 11. A Simple S23 has less memory and it is UFS3.>>93698216> I did take a look at other flagships including the s23 since you mentioned it thereKeep in mind that now you need at least 12 gigabytes of RAM if you want keep phone for more than a year.256 gigabytes of internal memory will also be good, Samsung will take about 35 gigabytes out of 128 out of the box. OnePlus 12-16.
>>93699069Not a worse phone, it's a more polished experience, better,support, better camera and the s23 256gb uses UFS 4.0 cunt>>Keep in mind that now you need at least 12 gigabytes of RAM if you want keep phone for more than a year.Fucking retarded take.
>>93699120Doesn't the S23 have that weird camera blur issue that hasn't been fixed yet?
>>93699120> more polished experience>samsungHi sir.
>>93699120> Fucking retarded take.Samsung has much more bloat, and at the same time is much less optimized.> more polished experience>samsungRetard alert
>>93699536What if I don't want 3rd party bloatware on my phone?
>>93699548>>93699574all bloatware can be uninstalled and disabled through the tool on the OP you newfag tourists
>>93699536> HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHABBK has the best of what there is on market. At least it don't lag out of the box and it don't have a built-in netflix application, an extra browser and other shit from Samsung.
>>93699589>Pay a flagship price for a flagship phone>Preinstalled adsN-no thanks
>>93699614Samsung phones has no ads unless you talk about the galaxy store. Iphone have even more ads and you would never call them out.
>>93699761My bad, I was talking about LinkedIn, Facebook, etc. that Meta(tm) and Microsoft had paid Samsung to pre-install
>>93699824Those you can literally remove like any other app. Why would you complain about a non issue? Sounds like cope to me
>>93699911Idk bro, why would I pay flagship prices for flagship devices riddled with ads? Can you imagine the garbage Apple would get from doing this? Not sure why Samsung gets a pass lol
>>93699949what are you even talking about? you can just remove the apps by clicking uninstallsounds like you are coping cuz u cant afford it
>>93699949Do you have brain damage or you just can't read??
>>93676283Make the decision for me:https://www.nokia.com/phones/en_us/nokia-xr-21?sku=VMA752H9FI1CN0or https://www.sonimtech.com/products/devices/xp10/Inb4 Nokia 3310, I sadly need GPS capability sometimes
>>93700022>>93700061Bro, removable or not, why would I spend $1,000+ for a software experience full of bloatware? Imagine if Samsung had Candy Crush lmao>Just tinker to make it work, bro
>>93698683bro literaly everysingl fucking good phone in existence is not useable with verizon wtf
>>93700170Dude you don't understand, they're saving you time by preinstalling Tik Tok for you. The money they get from putting this crapware on your device is just a bonus.
>>93700170>hitting uninstall on an app is now considered tinkeringSo you do have brain damage. Can we do anything to help you anon?
>>93700639Nah, brain damage is willingly buying into software full of bloat over software that isn't lmao
>>93700708I've owned many phones from every brand in the past few years and nobody has as good software as samsung. Most have what you call bloat pre-installed even sony. Seek help because you don't seem to feel well
>>93700740>Sony>Facebook and LinkedInCringe, but already better than Samsung lmao
>>93697729>thats at the end of its life cycleNot receiving updates doesn't mean it's at the end of its life cycle. And it's still receiving updates.
>>93700708cope and seethe retard, enjoy your colorOS with the mandated CCP backdoors and spyware
>>93700840>Just NetflixUnironically, ColorOS is leaner in terms of 3rd party bloatware lmaoNo, I will not cope and seethe. I will simply buy into a flavour of Android without 3rd party bloatware
>>93700882its the seafoam green one with 120hz and 8gb ram
>>93700781Nothing is better than samsung when it comes to software. Not even iOS. You will not get a more bug free, feature rich and polished experience than oneUI as we currently stand. It's simply unmatched.
>>93700918>feature richSamsung should add even more "features" and pre-install the top 50 most downloaded apps from the Google Play store
still listen to this kino now and thenhttps://youtu.be/wxwycoG41fc
>>93700900>he thinks the CCP government doesn't force BBK to install backdoors and spyware on their international spy devicesok so it is brain damage
>>93701099Probably? Android has many different flavours tho, some with 3rd party bloatware, other without :)
>3rd party bloat or kernel level logging hard choice desu
>>93701260I can't pick a device without either?
>>93700951Search up good lock and routines and then tell me you aren't amazed.
