Is there actually a screen protector for the Galaxy S8+ that covers the entire screen? I've gone through 4 different brands now that claim "edge to edge" but all have that 1mm gap on the edges that gives that halo effect. I'm using a minimal case pic related so I have the room for it but I'm starting to think all these protectors are the same flippin dimensions.

No, they're all slightly smaller than the glass on the phone. But screen protectors aren't that useful anyway, as they only really protect against scratches which Gorilla Glass is very resistant to in the first place.

The very best screen protectors out there (the actual glass ones, like Panzer Glass and similar brands) will scratch from the exact same shit as Gorilla Glass does, which is to say that neither your phone nor such a screen protector will get scratched up by leaving your keys in the same pocket or even molesting it with a razor blade.

I smashed mine yesterday morning against the wall. The testosterone rush I got after taking a cold shower, mixed together with the inability to communicate with my father who was complaining and seeking for help for his broken phone at that time, through e-mail. It was a Lumia 950, the screen is 50% black, 20% rainbows now. It didn't bother me much, since I was thinking of giving it to my father as a replacement to his broken phone anyway.

I now switched back to my previous phone, Nokia 7610. Today I ordered a new black cover for it, for that it has many scratches on its screen.

I am praying each day for last 1-2 months, and refreshing the news for the Surface Phone. Panos Panay's tweet was exhilarating, ZDNet's news was annoying, petition on change.org is fine, but that's also saddening. If it came down to making a petition, then I suppose it really is not going to come any soon.

If there's anybody here hoping for the Surface Phone, might want to sign this: https://www.change.org/p/all-the-people-who-would-buy-the-phone-show-microsoft-the-demand-for-the-surface-phone-or-andromeda

>>66699806
As long as you don't treat your phone like shit yeah, but if you did I doubt a screen protector would be able to help you.
Pretty much the only stuff you have to worry about nowadays as far as scratching your screen goes is sand and such.
>>
>>66699295

Sadly thanks to the edge display, glass screen protectors are awkward as shit. Your best bet is a film screen protector which unfortunately you may need to purchase online.

I use a Lifeproof case which kind of sucks major pehnis because the screen protector isn't in full contact with the screen (Loss of sensitivity.) But I'm a clumsy shithead so y0l0.

A 200 USD difference in price is hardly marginal, he could buy two Xiaomi Note 5 Pros for the price of one Nokia 8, it's mid-range chinkshit vs last year's flagship specs.

But what do you mean settle? There's not as much reason to root an Android One device since there's no bloat to get rid of in the first place. Ad blocking works without root, as do most other things that would normally require root via Shizuku Manager.

>>66695550
>LineageOS gives you a clean system that you can add what you want to. It's not as barebones as some ROM's but it includes quality of life features that are nice to have (they vary depending on phone builds)
I wouldn't necessarily advice switching from Samsung's ROM on the Edge, as there are specific hardware improvements such as edge detection that make it much better.
Disabling apps, or rooting and removing them, is the way to go imo.
Not sure how to clean phones as I've always had custom ROMs or Nexus phones with stock android.
From previous thread. What is edge detection? In pictures? Actual... edge detection like when the phone is laying on the table? Why wouldn't this work on Lineage?

I meant settle for the Nokia 8, as that along with a locked bootloader is a clear disadvantage. The battery capacity of just 3090 mAh is puzzling. What were they thinking?

Yes it is that much. Nokia 8 MSRP is 400 USD, Xiaomi Note 5 Pro MSRP is 200 USD.

can you find what the benefits and limits to the phone are if I buy the Galaxy S9+ unlocked phone from Samsung ?

People said wi-fi calling you won't get if you buy an unlocked phone, but some people say you do still can use it? I will have ATT service. I know their Galaxy S9 unlocked phones are also universal, so it works with any carrier (Sprint/Verizon- CDMA and ATT/TMobile- GSM)

Question:
what phone has the LOUDEST speaker?

Not necessarily the best, the most well-rounded, the best bass, blah blah blah. Nope, just straight up the loudest. Because I don't care so much about the 'quality' - I don't use it for music. But for radio and podcasts.

The reason is this: I like listening to radio or podcasts when I get up in the morning all the way until I leave for work. However many of the things I do during the morning are too loud so I can't actually hear the audio from the phone.

>when the bathroom tap is running (strong flow but loud for some reason)
>when I flush
>when I'm in the shower
>when the kitchen tap is running
>when the kettle is boiling
>when the fan above the cooker is running (actually this one applies to evenings not mornings, but same thing really)
and if I'm listening to a podcast especially it's annoying because I either have to anticipate these loud things and pause beforehand (meaning constant stop-start throughout the morning), or I forget to do it, and then I have to finish what I'm doing, then dry my hands, then unlock, then rewind 15/30/45/60 seconds back to the point where I last heard it.
It's getting annoying as fuck and so I want a speaker loud enough to cut through the other noise.

ib4
>use speakers!
I'm constantly going from room to room. Bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, living room. I can't just bluetooth connect to one set of speakers.
>use a portable speaker!
I'm not carrying a bluetooth speaker from room to room with me, that's ridiculous. I just want the phone in my pocket.
>use a system of speakers in every room where they all play or the audio switches to the one closest to you constantly
that requires a botnet system like LG flow and requires me to buy several of their overpriced speakers so no, fuck that shit

I'm thinking of some kind of Moto Z and speaker mod...
>>
>>66702263
Thanks for the info my guy. However both phones are exactly the same price and I got until the end of the month so I'll probably go try them out in person.

Wi-fi calling depends entirely on the SIM card and service you are supposed to receive from your Provider. If you are post-paid with AT&T or Verizon you will get Wifi calling. They restrict wifi calling and you don't get it if you're mooching off their towers through MVNOs like Straight Talk or Cricket however.

I have an S9+ factory unlocked, the G965U1 model. One thing that sucks is our model is the very last to get a firmware update. You'd think it'd be the first but it's not. Samsung pushes updates to all the carriers first, who then push the updates out. When Samsung hears back that NO ONE had problems then they update the carrier-less version.

Also, my girlfriend has been using LG G4's for the past 3 years and I'm constantly impressed by everything about them except the fragile screen. $140 for 3gb ram, the best camera I've seen on android, etc etc. What's the case against one of them, if anyone can offer it?

I currently own Xiaomi 4A which treats me just fine and I have no big problems with it other than some minor theme issues.
I have an option of selling it for about 70€, so I was thinking if there's anything worth upgrading to for additional 50-60€. I don't really care about bigger screen size or a better camera, only better performance, more RAM or bigger battery.
Since Xiaomi has been treating me good I was thinking about another phone from them, but I'm kinda lost in different models (4, 4X, 5, Plus, Note etc. ???) and since I couldn't find a simple comparison table with all specs I'm here to ask for an advice.

Thinking about it I don't necesserialy need an upgrade as my 4A does everything I need it for. I don't play demanding games (unless you count Shattered PD as one) or run 40 tabs in Chrome, so I'm absolutely fine with not upgrading for another 1-2 years.

I haven't seen issues with that, but she just gets a fresh one yearly. My Nokia 6 bootlooped and bricked back in feb, every time I send it off for warranty repairs it comes back with a fucked up screen. this is the fourth sendoff today.

New flagships phones are a conspiracy.

Without decent sized bezels it becomes unwieldy, really tricky to hold comfortably and use one-handed - especially since they're becoming so big at the same time. Accidental touches from the sides become all too easy and the lack of a good sized bottom bezel (like Sony used to have) makes the nav keys, especially the one in the opposite corner from the hand you're holding it in, awkward to reach. All in all it forces the user into an unnatural, tenuous grip, making drops more likely. This droppability is further increased by the phones becoming ever thinner, with smooth, curvy, slippery edges. Combine this with all phones being fragile glass sandwiches these days instead of durable plastic, and it smells of conspiracy desu. Trying to make it so that drops and thus smashes are more common, so you have to buy a new phone more frequently. This problem is made even worse by phones becoming more expensive every year. The price of flagships rises $50-100 every year.

https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s9_costs_379_build-news-30147.php
Not exactly a conspiracy, although curved edge gimmicks and glass backs don't help durability in the slightest. Many flagships also force you to settle for ridiculous downsides - the lack of micro SD card slots, 3.5mm jacks, subpar battery life and locked bootloaders among others.

>>
>>66708947
On the other hand though, 140-180 dollars/eruos will give you a reliable and powerful phone without retarded first generation gimmicks you don't need instead of just an incredibly underwhelming smaller stripped down version of a flagship (Samsung's mini series, LGs G4 shenanigans, crappy 2011-ish small Sony phones; god, those were shit). Buying a flagship isn't a must anymore. You can keep up very well with the smartphone world by picking up a phone at a reasonable price and chinkphones have helped that case tremendously

Can anyone convince me not to get a OnePlus 6? Value looks great, certainly within my budget, notch is a non-issue and I don't use either of the carriers it doesn't support.

I'm also a fan of the slightly lower resolution and slightly more minimalist software, given that while battery life is important to me, I often carry a battery pack, meaning that the important feature is not how long the battery lasts, but how little power is used.

Finally, unlocking is easy, as is rooting.

That's what you get for buying glued together phones. There aren't many phones where the battery will survive past 2 years without noticeable degredation, even flagships.

software updates killed it and a few generations ahead of it. you could jailbreak it and get some less resource intensive copies of earlier OS updates (IIRC) tho, but try an SE if you're interested in testing the waters.

idk about starting it with any finesse, but you could try plugging it in and seeing if it has any charge. if it's dead, charging will automatically lead to it booting w/ no user input
