I found it too heavy for a phone, at 168 g.

My G5+ is pushing it at 155 too
>>
>>64711106
I've got one of these, trying to find a phone that is strictly an upgrade has proven to be a real pain in the ass.
Everything newer seems to drop features I like, pick up features that I don't care about and balloon the price to 2 times of what it cost.

G5+ here, it's an amazing phone for the price.
Near-stock Android is a charm.

Moto X Play is the greatest fucking phone I've ever used. My dad has one and he's getting a new one this year so I'm getting his Moto X.

HUGE upgrade over my shitty third worlder (Brazil) Galaxy Grand Prime.

I still use mine working fine, if it was waterproof I wouldn't have switched to 7 plus.

Too bad they lost so much trust after the G4 bootloop QC problems. Even mine bootlooped and I rarely get defective products.

>>64711106
Moto c plus.
It's like a long lasting battery with internet excess. A workhorse that can take a beating and is dirt cheap. I payed about 90E with a cashback thing on top. Never going back to the expensive bloated shit. Doesn't make sense after this.

Seconded. I love my v20 it freaking rocks.
I haven't touched lineage though because I really enjoy the second screen. If they implement it, I'd definitely install it.

Here's the new phone I bought this evening online, faggots. If you only know low end phone brands, let me dumb it down for you. This is called a Sirin Solarin Crystal worth an amusing $16,000.

I never use cheap phones like working class faggots who act rich and use trash tier brands like iphone and Samsung. Money isn't a problem, but that's not something you can understand. Your overworked palms are too dirty to even be near expensive things.

To you middle class peasants who barely scrape by on bad credit, have fun dying early. I'll retire around the same time you're buried. This phone easily costs more than the shitty cars you drive, if you even own one.

AMA. If you are extra kind, perhaps I'll give you some life tips to be rich as I am. Just maybe you can luckily work for me some day, if you get up the ranks? Maybe serve me a glass of four figure priced wine?

Wileyfox Swift 2
Comes loaded with CyanogenOS. Which stopped existing a while back, so mine is currently on stock 7.1.1
I think they planned to add most features from Cyanogen, but I skipped last update so I don't know how things are atm.

>>64711106
Still my daily driver. Also still holding out hope Moto will pull their head out of their ass and release a worthy successor, I've almost bought a z2 play a few times but I really dislike the idea of stepping down in screen res. I'd get a vanilla z2 or force if they had a fucking mod that would give me more battery AND give me my god damn headphone jack back, preferably with a kickass dac/amp.

I've also looked at non-moto phones but I like my moto-gestures and at least pre-lenovo I liked the design language, post-lenovo the designs have gotten muddy a bit but still have a few decent looking phones, but I'm annoyed they've started putting the fucking logo on the front of the phones again, even samsung stopped that shit.

Fuck will no one save us from this maddness??


Also any other moto-bros, I have this idea for a mod it's basically the old moto atrix dock but for the z-line, you could make the mount point where the touchpad would be and just use the whole phone screen as the touchpad.
Thoughts?

Wileyfox is going out of business soon, I wouldn't expect any support from them in the future.

the LG G5.

Last of the LG G phones to have a removable battery, and the entire lower bezel can be removed and you can add camera/mic attachments, making the phone modular.

I just bought one to replace my LG G3, glad I did.

Crossing my fingers I don't run into any bootloop issues.

I was tempted to get a Xiaomi but I needed a phone asap.

I have it. Battery dies way too quick and the usb port is picky af. Besides that its quick and very durable. Had it for two years and still looks new.

I just wish it had a better battery, the USB port was better, oh yeah and my finger print scanner died. So that needs to last longer.

I appreciate how Nokia went with stock Android, but the hardware could have been better, especially the cameras. I own a 6, the build's solid, it just works, I wish I waited a bit longer since the new 6 seems superior in almost every way.
>>
Moto Z Play with battery mod.

Stock and infinite battery for fucks sake i cant drain it completely.
>>
>>64711534
I love my V20 but the GPS lock on is fucking ass, sometimes it takes 30 minutes to get a lock when my wife's phone is instant. It also constantly stops working on wifi forcing me to reconnect to the wifi network. But it's looking like it's gonna be the last removable battery/microsd phone, so I'm probably stuck with it until it dies.
>>
I've got an x pure as well and I can't really see any phones that are worth buying at the moment.
Probably I will upgrade to a moto g6+ at the end of this year, but goddamn did Motorola make their phones ugly.

Garbage
>>
>>64713844
I have the turbo 2 and it is hot garbage after 2 years. Battery dies in half a day and the software patches have been absolute shit. Not to mention it only has one antennae so you can't make phone calls while using 4G data, but then again I'm on the Verizon Jew train.

Unbreakable screen is probably the greatest thing ever invented however, and literally makes up for all of the aforementioned flaws

Went from V20 to V30+. So underappreciated, sound quality is top tier. Expandable memory. Still waterproof and dust proof. Just waiting for bootloader unlocks and lineageOS. God tier phone regardless.

Another Moto X Play user here. 2 and a half years later and i'm still going strong.

After rooting and whatnot it's pretty much bulletproof. I don't do anything except extremely light tasks so I haven't seen much slowdown. The only thing that has seemed to take a hit has been battery life, but that could just be my kernel, and a swap would probably help.

I've also dropped it a bunch without ruining it, which is why I slot it above my dear old nexus 4.
>>
>>64721002
are you illiterate? it's HTC's best/most widely known model
>>
>>64719990
Mah nigga. Stock os is a little bloated, but once you remove it. It's pretty quick and responsive. Miui 9 is good so far.
>>
>>64714708
dude the reason no one gives a shit about this phone is because the boot loops and the modular system ended up being a worse version of what Moto did (but removable battery is nice)
>>
>>64711106
It wasn't that good. Too big, relatively poor battery life, and it got very warm in my use cases. I really did like its curves and grip though.

>>64711123
I was legit about to buy one. What's wrong with it

Still using my Droid Turbo, I swear it's the best phone I've ever fucking owned

>1440p screen
>great camera
>still really snappy even with a Snapdragon 805
>charges from 15%-100% in under an hour thanks to Turbocharging
>capacitive home, tabs and back buttons
>dropped it too many times screen-down from roughly 6 feet, screen still hasn't shattered

Even though the battery is 3900mAh it's starting to take a shit but other than that it's a fantastic phone.
>>
>>64723050
Not him, but I've got one also.
It's a nice phone, but hasn't aged well. Motorola dropped support for it quickly, it can overheat, and the battery is pretty mediocre.
If you're looking to buy a new phone I would strongly recommend the g5+. It's not a looker, but it has amazing battery life and won't financially rape you.
>>
>>64711390
I had that phone, and it was criminally slow for the last couple of months, glad I got rid of it

what the best phone i can get for the 150-200 dollar range. I kinda prefer something newer but give me it anyway
>>
>>64719977
No surprise considering the fingerprint reader doesn't work in the us. I do like mine, but it feels too fragile for my taste.
>>
Moto X Force/Droid Turbo 2 is a fun phone. The amount of punishment mine endured is comparable to the toughness of an old school Nokia, but with waterproofing. I've since moved on since it's out of date but it's still a great phone.
>>
>>64711106
I have this phone. I really love it but I really wish it came with a removable battery. I just had to buy a portable power bank since I can't make it through long days without charging anymore. Other than that it's great. I see myself getting another 1.5 years of good use out of it. By then I figure a 2018 midrange phone will be like $300 but be better in every way.

even had better multi score on some cpu benchmark compared to best iphone
can last a fucking week it has 4000ma battery at 1080p
has some kind of technology that wont make it fucking slow after time like most androids
build is solid aluminum

I have one. Build quality is terrible. Bought one, died in 6 months, bought another that had a major screen issue in 6 months. It overheats. Battery life is terrible. Camera is mediocre compared to modern phones. Really just terrible.

Super unreliable because of poor build quality and shitty battery makes it an easy no-buy.

>>64729213
It's an honest question about two sims. My translator/guide I had when I was living in China used an honor with two sim cards. Is it for combined coverage from separate networks?
>>
>>64729457
Usually it's for people who have a work phone and a personal phone, but they don't want to carry around two separate phones. It's easier to just pop both sims into the same phone and only have to carry that around.
>>
>>64711390
Had it myself was a pretty good phone didn't overheat. Battery was meh and the hardware was already mid to low tier when it came out.
Solid phone overall tho

Still though, great piece of hardware and the blackberry software makes productivity on android pretty decent.
