Is it a bad idea to consider the LG G5? It's not new anymore but still has a pretty good processor, good camera, headphone jack, SD card slot, FM radio, removable battery, even an IR BLASTER.

OnePlus 5T vs Best Alternatives [Specs]

Thinking of the pixel 2 xl vs the lgv30+.

The camera is better on the pixel. The lg30+ has a headphone jack (I know the lgv30+ has a hifi dac) but I'm satisfied by v4a. I guess the deal breaker is the pixel has no sd card slot.

Should I just wait next year?

The s7 edge I had was pretty shit and overheated constantly but this note 8 is hands down the best phone I've ever had. Why can't applel get on the oled train?

Wait for the new Nokia 6? Sure its gonna have a 300mAh battery most likely, but the OS on them are near AOSP, the phones are built like fucking tanks, and heat won't be an issue when it comes to battery. All they needed to do was minimize the bezels and give it a 630, everything else about the original was perfect for its price range. Its gonna be a sweet deal at ~250€/$. I mean shit:
~300mAh Battery
5.5 FHD Screen
SD630
4 Gigs of Ram
32/64 gigs internal
Durability of a brick
16MP back/8MP Front cameras

Camera and music quality was above average for the original phone, so if they tweaked it slightly, then this is gonna be one hell of a phone. Waiting for reviews, and if its all good its definitely gonna be my next one.

Not to mention free 1 year warranty that lenovo will just send you a device for $25 no matter lost or stolen etc.

and you can get an additional year of coverage for $25 directly from moto.

>>64118777
Well if you're playing games or otherwise heavily using the GPU, you know that phone is the same speed as redmi note 4 with sd625 even though they use different CPUs.

Where as if you desired to play games you know there is a large difference in GPU performance going to a SD820 phone like the oneplus 3, which as the graph shows is almost a direct doubling in performance.

Are you unable to "get" the aggregated value the benchmark score represents? Higher is faster. The score is not a flat rate because the test challenges different parts of the GPU in different scenes, some shaders may be more common and have a higher value in real use and thus may be scored higher.

Yes? Maybe not in the next week its coming out, but by April definitely. Nokia 7 is using the same aluminum as the flagship, has a better camera module, and was released in a limited market. The original Nokia 6 was released at 300 euros last year before it had no sure footing, and was cheaper elsewhere. The same phone with a slightly better chipset can still release at the same price without compromises cause things change in a year.

lg g5 owner here, it's OK. Flashed piles of shit on my phone, no bootloops so far (except for a softbrick when I once accidentally forgot to reformat the cache partition). Just wait for the device encryption bug to be fixed in lineage [https://jira.lineageos.org/browse/BUGBASH-1226] and you're good to go.

what's the obsession with Xiaomi Redmi Note 4? And what's the difference between 4 and 4X cause if I look on GSMArena, there is no real difference. Also, it's a bit annoying that they don't give you fast charge for that monster of a battery. How much does it take to charge it? Like 3 hours?

And about Meizu. I don't exactly have where to buy Meizu M6 Note in my country and I'm also a bit skeptical about Xiaomi phones... let alone Meizu... are they good?

Hi /g/, I have a question that doesn't deserve its own thread IMO but fits best here.
I had to create a Facebook account for work, it's empty and I plan to delete it afterwards, but I will absolutely need to access it from my phone from time to time.
If I do so, will I see the profiles of people who have my number in my friend suggestions , and , more crucially, will they see me in their friend suggestions ?
I don't wish this account to be connected to anything outside of work.
I can't use a pseudonym.

I've seen people say that FB can do that, but since I'm technologically retarded and research gives me conflicting results, I hope that this savier board can help.

As of right now there are no custom ROMs for the Mi Max 2 unless you want to putz around with the Xiaomi.eu versions. Either way you will require an unlocked bootloader which takes 3 days to unlock.

Once you get the phone go to Settings -> Additional Settings -> Privacy and turn off anything with ads.

Also, open up.the Downloads app and go into its settings menu and turn off the recommended content bullshit like in pic related.

After that, proceed to download F-droid and install Blokada, you will thank me later.
>>
>>64130532

Thanks man. I did mean a stock Xiaomi ROM so I'd have a clean version in case the vendor had some something dumb to it - would I still need the bootloader unlocked for that?

Thanks for the advice - saved for when it arrives.
>>
>>64130620
If you're going to be using the stock Xiaomi ROM from Xiaomi themselves then you don't need an unlocked bootloader. Just use either MI Flash (official tool) and flash a clean ROM in fast boot mode (that's the mode with the Mi mascot tinkering in an Android bot with the word Fastboot written in big ass letters). You can also download XiaoMiTool and use that to flash a stock ROM. Just be sure to enable USB debugging before flashing.

Also, if you bought the Global Version of the Mi Max 2 you should get the official ROM. If you bought a so-called "International" version then you may end up with a vendor ROM.

Feel free to ask more questions if needed.
>>
>>64130620
>>64130907

One way to know you got an official ROM is once you turn on the phone you should get an Ota update to MIUI 9.0.3.0 if the phone is still on MIUI version 8.5.

What's with the "you don't need LTE lol" memes? More 2g/3g is being shut down every year here.
>>
>>64114553
just looking cute, desu
>>
>>64131250
Here, the "3G" is HSPDA+ which means it goes 30mbit/s uncapped. LTE is like 250mbit/s and lower latency, but on a phone all you're going to notice is the latency. My connection at home is fucking 20mbit and slower than "3G", combined with jewish data plans and I really don't give a shit about going faster than 30mbit/s. LTE is often more crowded too, I found that 3G is faster on my sister and mom's chinkshit phones than LTE is on mine most of the time.

Also all the 3rd tier providers here are rolling out budget data plans, ie: $38/mo for unlimited calling and 2gb "3G speed" data which is capped at 3Mbps regardless if you're connected at 3G or 4G, and they're jacking up the price of "4G speed" data to $48 for 2gb. In this case an LTE connection only offers better latency.

The Mi Note 2, the predecessor to the Mi Note 3, has a Snapdragon 821 processor, a larger battery(4070 mAh vs. the 3050 mAh of the Mi Note 3), has 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage (no micro SD card slot!), and has NFC. The Mi Note 3 has the better camera setup as it's got a dual cam setup on the back and has gotten rave reviews about its cameras.

The Mi Note 3 has a flat screen so it will be easier to find a decent screen protector for it versus the Mi Note 2's curved at the edges screen.

Tl;dr I like the Mi Note 2 better than the 3 only because I don't use the camera all that much.

MIUI, even though it's Chinese botnet, comes with some cool shit like the scrolling screenshot, Mi Drop which lets you make your phone into an Ftp server on your wifi network and you can dump shit or take it out of the phone without connecting the USB cable to your PC, you also get a free applock app that lets you lock individual apps so that you will need to enter in a pattern or provide your fingerprint.

What else...

If you setup a Mi account, you get 5 GB of storage free. It's not much but it's free. You will need to setup and bind your phone to a Mi account if you plan on ever unlocking the bootloader.

Let me know if you have any other questions or if I missed something.

Don't turn off MIUI optimizations. It messes up the UI and really does nothing to help you.

The only thing that really needs to be done on MIUI now is whitelisting apps you want responsive notifications from on the battery saving function.

Maybe but I could never find a version of that Gcam that worked for me even after making sure I edited my build.prop file correctly. I've installed all the available versions of that shit and nothing worked. Maybe someone else can get it to work on the Mi Note 2.

Hey /g/ what phone should I buy? My current phone is a Nexus 5 but I'm tired of having to charge it 3 times a day. I want something with a good battery life and custom ROM support

You have to reboot after enable camera2api. I made the same mistake too. But maybe it just isn't compatible with your phone.

Redmi Note 4 global is the best choice really. Tons of development and best battery life.

I did reboot and such. I just said fuck it because if I really want a camera I will just buy a proper one.

Anyone own a pixel 2 that can answer a camera question? I know the stock camera is great but has anyone tried using manual camera apps like open camera now that the visual core is activated? Last time I used the phone every picture I took with third party apps looked worse than the stock google app.

tl;dr do 3rd party photo apps look as good as the stock google camera app with the latest android version on the pixel 2?
