"Some Pixel 2 XL devices were shipped to consumers without an operating system, rendering them unusable."

"Some units suffer from Bluetooth connectivity issues." (+ no headphone jack)

"Some of the USB-C to 3.5mm adapters for the headphones do not work. In some cases, rebooting the phone can fix the issue temporarily. Google is offering replacements for the faulty adapters."

"Hundreds of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners have been complaining of high-pitched and clicking sounds coming from the phone"

You don't have to open up the phone to attach a mod, they have good mods instead of expecting kickstarter to come up with something, and the mods work across multiple present and probably future devices instead of one blobby looking phone that nobody bought cause it was inferior to all its competitors.

Tell that to the people who were rooted and initially denied service when the LG bootloop issues first began. Then again, that's probably the other major reason those lawsuits are going, so good for them I guess.

Doesn't change the fact that having to register with LG and having to enter your phone's IMEI and fastboot device ID to get an unlock code so you can finally run fastboot oem unlock is retarded compared to most other phones where you just have to enter the command in fastboot or flash some shit via Odin.

In the short term it doesn't mean anything but after a year or so when the manufacturer abandons software update you'll likely want to move to a custom rom for security and feature updates.

It's a two-year-old discontinued device. At least it has Lineage OS support already, so when it does get cut off by HTC in the near future you can keep getting software updates.

Honor 7x only runs on GSM networks, which cricket apparently isn't.

Cricket hasn't been CDMA in years. They use the ATT network, they even happen to be owned by ATT, not that that's important to an MVNO. You either activate on the website or go in to a store to do it, whatever's cheaper.

thanks dude

Any reason you recommended Cricket over ATT?
>>
>>64317878
The big 4 almost always offer the worst deals, unless you need a fuckton of data or you happen to work out a really killer family plan. You save a ton by going with MVNOs that resell them, especially when you're already planning on buying a phone without a subsidy. Cricket is just the most normie friendly one for ATT, not necessarily the best deal you will get. You can google around if you're more ambitious.

Avoid anything connected to Sprint. One moment you'll have really fucking great LTE and the next 2G.

If you want something similar to Boost, Metro PCS isn't too bad. They're on the T-Mobile Network I believe. Mint is pretty great out here too from what I hear.
>>
>>64318221

Basically everything in the country is one of the four networks, except the google fi thing that's both tmo and sprint. You can check out maps for your area, but generally

how much would you be willing to spend?
>>
>>64320735
Enough to get me a phone that will last and meet those criteria. I currently have an S7 that I bought in July of 2016, and it stopped charging today. I'm genuinely pretty upset about this as I think a $600 phone should last more than a year and a half
>>
>>64320735
I was think maybe a Galaxy active phone
Do they still make the active versions?
>>
>>64320780
yeah, there's the S7 Active and S8 Active still
>>
>>64320789
Are they good? Also is that CATerpillar phone still being made? Last time I browsed here that was coming out and you guys said it would be good
>>
>>64308645
Blackberry KeyOne I guess.
>>
>>64320807
don't know anything about the CATerpillar phone, but a Samsung phone is still a Samsung phone. It'll be good for the first year, maybe two, and then get riddled with lag. I haven't really had good experiences with them, and currently have an S7 Active. If you just need something water resistance and tough handling, it'll be good to go.

What do you consider great battery life?
>>
>>64320876
As good as I can get, at least a good bit better than the S7.
Really just waterproof and good battery life are all I care about like I said
It also has to have Bluetooth for the intercom in my helmet I forgot to mention that before
Less price is better but I'll spend up to like 8-900 if need be to get what I need
>>
Is there any proper firewall that does not require root?
>>
>>64320906
Well, I don't know how the S8 fares against the S7 in the Active versions. I'm assuming it'd be about the same, if not, better.

From what I can see, size-wise the S8 Active is considerably bigger than the S7 Active. Has the same sized battery (4000mAh), but the same processor as current flagships. Chances are that it'll last about the same as an S7 Active.
>>
>>64320906
>>64321149
forgot to add on my previous comment. It should last you a day.

Since I have an S7 Active, as a warning, my battery did degrade quickly, and I find myself charging the phone 1-2x/day at 1.5 years in of ownership.

I'mnot big on bluetooth use, so I don't know how much that will affect the battery life. As a new phone, the battery should last you the day.
