I am a luddite who just got my first smartphone a month ago, Samsung Galaxy J7 V. I was recently informed I should be able to access a test screen to, among other things, boost signal strength in exchange for battery life. I live in the woods and charge the thing once a week as it is so I would like to do that. The code *#0*# does not work. Did Verizon disable it and if so, how can I enable the feature again? Factory reset?

polite sage for old thread under bump limit.

Last time i tried Android it was with the original Xperia Z. Did things pick up since then, and i mean significantly? No crashing music player, no freezes, no laggy scrolling, no app store with nothing but shovelware garbage as far the eye can see? Im sincere, i don't want to buy the 8 or X and its time for a new phone.

>>62397071
Unless the phone is absolute shit, it shouldn't have a crashing music player, freezing or locking up. Samsung phones tend to have laggy scrolling (I've heard otherwise for Exynos powered devices). Google Play is about the same as the App Store for iDevices. There is shovelware, but if you know what you're looking for, you'll find it. The software update deal is still pretty much the same, but companies are apparently getting faster, but I wouldn't hold my breath unless you get something with stock or near stock Android.

What's a phone that fits the following requirements:

>Good low-light camera
>Good, loud audio
>Won't break in half if you keep it in your pocket

Windows Phones used to do this for me, but since going to Android I haven't been happy. Best I've used so far is probably the ZTE Blade V8 but its speaker isn't very powerful and the chassis is flimsy.

I was hoping for a modern take on the Axon 7 with its speakers but with a better camera.

Hey /spg/, smartphone ignoramus here. I've used iPhones since 2009 but I just need a headphone jack and I don't want to feed the tech duopoly. I do mostly online trading, standard web browsing and I run a lot of smart home apps. I prefer US made stuff but it's not a deal breaker. Camera quality isn't a huge deal to me but I don't want a potato either. I also do some music production on my phone with GarageBand from time to time. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks

My Nexus 5x got the bootloop so I need a new phone. I was thinking of getting the Moto G5 plus. is there anything around that price range better or coming out later this year? I'm using my dads old Blackberry z10 and I hate this thing...

>>62398093
LG V20/V30, Nokia8, Xiami Mi5S or Mi A1 if you feel the performance is adequate.
>>
>>62398184

I don't care about stereo, just loud with good quality. My old Lumia 640 would go up so loud on speaker I could have a conversation in my convertible on the highway with the top down. And that was a $35 phone.

Every Android I've used since I basically have to leave leave at max volume with normal ambient noise.

If your budget is $400 and under, consider the HTC 10

Be able to explain the difference between basic hardware differences.

What actually makes cameras decent (not just how many megapixels it has)

>>
>>62398366
Samsung and similar companies have generally a 1 year warranty for basic manufacturing defects. So if your screen has fucked up pixels or weird burn in or some shit, they'll probably just send you a refurb replacement without charging anything but maybe shipping.

However if you drop your phone and crack the screen, yeah they'll be charging you just like anyone else would.

no major manufacturer is doing this anymore, LG dropped it with the V30.

They made the 6p so I would say they're a big brand.
>>
>>62398687
It's admittedly not as bad with normal images, but when you do notice it, it's pretty bad. Apparently some reviewers were reallllly noticing it, others not much at all.

If you're used to samsung AMOLED you probably will notice more than someone coming from IPS or similar LCD tech.

>>62398686
It scales based on how well you do and they aren't making it easy on me to collect commission presently, which is fine based on how our organization is doing, and how much they pay me hourly.

Its not going to hinder productivity like accidently touching the edged screen of the samsungs does. It's only downside is being ugly.

App makers can do what they want with it, you can make your app black at the top there if you want. That's better than forcing black up there imo.

Truth, of the three smartphone OSes, Windows 10 offers the best interface. I find that overall the user experience is better than that of Android and iOS as well, despite its flaws.
Just a shame that apps are dead, I decided to get an Android tablet instead of replacing my Lumia 950 fairly recently, just so I can keep having a phone that's both good at being a phone and has worthwhile hardware while not missing out on >muh apps.

All I want in a phone is a good camera, microSD support, and a nice matte plastic or leather back that won't get fucked up by scratches or shatter the moment it isn't treated like a newborn baby. Why is that so much to ask ?

You need to request a bootloader unlock before being able to do anything.
Sure there is probably a way to trick the bootloader into unlocking, but why would you want to when the OEM gives you the option of going through them without the risk of bricking a device?

Alright /spg/, after having exclusively used Snapdragon phones I'm extremely curious about giving Mediatek a chance. The only phones with their latest processor is the Meizu Pro 7 and the Pro 7 plus.

Which phone out of these 2 would you recommend and why? Alternatively, any other Helio X30 phones coming out soon?

Things I like about the Pro 7
>Smaller, easier to handle with one hand
>Lower resolution screen should offer better efficiency
>Slightly cheaper

Things I like about the pro 7 plus
>Larger and sharper screen
>Bigger battery

Also how is the build quality of Meizu phones and Flyme?
GSMarena review seemed to give it positive overall feedback.

I can afford it if I really want to, but financing it with 0% APR is cheaper.
>>
>>62404139
I'm considering the Mi Note 3 or the Mi 6, mostly because they can come in that sleek blue.
For relatively cheaper phones, you can check out the meizu M6 note. Similar specs to the redmi note 4 but with 4000 mAh battery, dual camera, and some other neat things that I forget.
>>
>>62405201
If you're going to take a credit hit at least apply for a credit card with a sign up bonus. It'll yield $150 minimum which will be significantly higher than whatever pennies you end up saving financing and having a measly $800 liquid. And most comes with 18 months of 0% apr as well.
>>
>>62405257
Well yes, of course, but financing will allow me to retain hundreds of dollars more spending power in the present. As for credit cards, I've already done that with Amex, and I'm holding off on getting too many cards too quickly.

I don't really need the performance and I have a fear of breaking things I pay money for so the BV8000 looks like it will be great, plus 5inch is better for me.

One thing I have noticed is it was 2 sim slots and an sd card slot. Apparently only 2 can be used at once... Can someone explain this to me? I was kind looking forward to having dual sim and an expansion slot to use for torrenting.

It's a real stupid comparison.


Morons think just because the benchmarks are similar they can be compared, but they REALLY can't be compared when you're talking not only a different OS, but entirely different architecture. ARM vs x86.

Pretend all you want the new iphone can beat out an intel laptop CPU. You're wrong, but feel free to pretend.

Lol nice side stepping faggot.

>i5 7360u

Pull up any benchmark you like in that region. I didn't make the image. I just grabbed it from jewgle
>>
>>62406720
The points not that it beats it. It's not an apple to apples comparison. Its two different architectural paradigms. Relative performance wise when put into context historically - i.e. Against its predecessors, against its direct competition and also how those two relationships have changed over time; it's an impressive architecture. Credit where its due.
>>
>>62407060
Oh for sure, it just isn't really a good comparison to make without context, most people seeing them compared side by side wont have the background knowledge to put it into context and just see bigger numbers = better, which in this case is a bit disingenuous.
