Smartphones are boring. It's not 2008 anymore.
>>
i'm sorry, but how the fuck can anybody even justify going NEAR a samsung phone? i was just in a phone shop, tried out the iphone XS and it was fucking orgasmic to use, used the s9+ or whatever that was beside it and it was fucking DISGUSTING. noticable input lag, frame drops when switching apps, ugly as FUCK UI, literally NOTHING appealing about it. why the FUCK do people buy these phones?
>>
>>68025232
Color means nothing on smartphones because you're using a non-transparent case anyways

Reposting from last thread: between Note 9 and iPhone X-variant. Like the note 9 for the stylus for note writing because I use post it notes and handwritten notes daily.

Currently on an s7 active which has slowly degraded over time, but at least its lag isn't as bad as my galaxy s3 (which I wanted to throw at a wall multiple times per day).

To answer a previous anon's reply on the previous thread, my employer covers part of my phone bill, so unlocked phones would most likely not be covered by that benefit, so I'm just trying to go through my carrier so the phone isn't as expensive for me. It's AT&T so my options are essentially Samsung or Apple.

Looking mostly for good battery life and for the phone to last at least 3 years. What would /g/ recommend? Just do my daily notes on paper and go iPhone for the 5+ year software support, or stay Android and hope my phone lasts past 3 years hardware wise and accept I won't get software support after 3 years of security patches?

yes? i'm not so much referring to functionality (they are pretty similar in that regard) but the looks of it. like, the fucking rounded bubbles and cluttered icons with disgusting colours, along with random widgets and text placed like an utter mess across the homepage. looks like something from 2005.

>>
>>68025556
I can change the look of pretty much anything on my S9+. The i can change the colors, text, application pictures, and the transition between switching apps. Even those bubbled icons that are so important. im not sure what your complaining about. Samsung has thousands of more options to how your phone looks visually when using. It.
>>
>>68025556
You can remove and add any widgets you want. And a lot of then are helpful.

My s7 edge has horrific lag. It's borderline unusable. It crashes multiple times a week. Everything is jittery and unresponsive. I can't even use gps and listen to music at the same time anymore.

The Samsung lag is not a meme.

Rugged and, if possible, decently performing (something equal to snapdragon 625, all I see is mediatek shit)

Less than €200, so chinkshit is the only option

>>68025974
How about you show me an example of Apples UI being able to change anything about the phone besides the wallpaper and ringtone. It isnt samsung specific, literally every android phone on the market, whether its old or brand new, has access to hundreds of launchers to make your phones UI work however you want it to. You can change absolutely everything. So saying that Apple "looks" better is irrelevant because you can make a android look EXACTLY like an iPhone. Becuase its meant to be customized and used depending on the person using it. Unlike iphone, becuass every single iphone UI looks exactly the same no matter whose iphone it is.
>>
>>68026096
ok, show me a samsung phone using apples ui exactly as is. if you can do that i'll admit defeat in this argument. doesn't change the points i have about input lag, frame drops etc.
>>
>>68026079
my s3 and g3 had pretty consistent performance during the time owned them. problem is, they were shit out of box, had too many features and pixel for power they were packing, today its a bit different isn't it

>>
>>68026301
I have the s9+ and i havent run into any issues at all. And i actually keep my processor set at 70% power to save battery. When i put it at 100% its buttery smooth. And i put some heavy usage on my processor. I route to my home computer often. I never have usues on the s9 siden
>>
>>68026244
Yeah so then just get an android becuase you dont need to flash anything to change your UI. It's all meant to he changed however you wanna change it. Apppe doesn't let you change ot customize anything. Most likely becuase they cant think of anything that wouldn't be a total rip off of android or any android launchers.

Is there any smartphone which isn't huge? I've had an iphone 3gs and currently a iphone 5. It's starting to fall apart on me, and i'm considering getting an iphone 8.

However, perhaps it's time for me to diverge from apple because I'm not really appreciating the ever growing size. Are there any smartphones which are about the size of an Iphone 3-4?

Not being able to customize your UI at all is not a good default. And its also the only default, no other options. Everyone likes options. Unless your really close minded.

My most recent phone broke, and I need a new one. I've decided that I'm sick of using it the time, and just want a very minimal phone. Something that'll function well enough to use a map, call Lyfts from time to time, and some basic messaging apps. Aside from that, really the only thing I want is a good battery. Ideally in the $100-$150 dollar range. Living in the US, and I have an AT&T plan.

AMOLED is cucked, cringe and bluepill. Is like making an screen out of cheese, knowing it is going to eventually spoil itself and be useful for nothing.

Hi /g/
I just bought Xiaomi A2 Lite, i just fell in love with the design and everything and luckily it doesnt come with Xiaomi MIUI botnet. But obviously as its plain android (8.1) its all Google everywhere. I never had an android phone so last 24 hours its all been just about declining all the prompts about google wanting to access this or that, but im sure they track every shit i do regardless.
Now, what are my options to go at least a little libre/free with the phone?
>inb4 triangulation
im not trying to hide from the towers, just from google. Im looking for a free software solution of using this new xiaomi and hopefully it should be able to run Signal without a hustle.
>>
>>68027726
Yeah man, I also fell for the Xiaomeme.
Swapped my G3 for a Mi 5 and it's gonna complete 2 years in a few months. I hate this phone so much now. Can't stand shitty MIUI and the custom ROMS are in the same shitty level. Also the design of it bothers me now, the edges are so sharp they almost hurt my hand holding it.

My next phone is going to be a S9+ and I'm settled on that. Maybe OP6T depending on launch price and specs.

I actually agree with you. I love my S5 and wish I didn't have to replace it, unfortunately the mic doesn't pick up audio when video calling, that's the only problem but gf wants to see my face, voice isn;t enough.

I had an Lg g6 and hated the unbalanced feeling, didn't feel right using it in one hand. The premium glass feeling annoys me since I look at it as a workhorse than a porcelain doll to look after.

Okay doods, my g4 is finally dying on me. I need an unlocked phone for less than $300 with a decent rear camera and solid battery life, what do I get?
>>
>>68029818
If you can shell out $40 more or wait for it to go on sale the Essential Phone isn't a bad option. Just install Gcam on it because the stock camera software, while perfectly fine nowadays, is still inferior to Gcam. There's no OIS/EIS either.
>>
>>68029818
Oh, and I live in the US.
>>
>>68028456
Yeah I don't know what I will do when my V20 dies, I'm seriously considering getting a decent soddering station, several junkyard V20's, source schematics from some chink anon and keep my main one alive for longer, if I had the S5 I'd be doing that, this beaner already has every repair tutorial for that thing https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Zu5elukt2nc

There really aren't any higher end phones that use an IPS LCD panel besides Sony and Xiaomi if you'd consider them high end, and even Sony is starting to do away with IPS LCD panels starting with the XZ3. There's an IPS LCD panel on the Essential Phone but that's just about it, LCD panels are usually reserved for low-mid range phones these days.

Question: anyone ever sold their rooted phone on ebay?

I upgraded to an Essential and am going to flip my very well-used Moto G5 Plus on ebay for a couple bucks. I was going to reflash the stock OTA and relock the bootloader, but then realized it'll still show the "WARNING: we know you unlocked your shit, nigger, and don't forget your bitch ass warranty is void!" screen on bootup since they're jews about that.

If I jazz up my ebay listing to highlight that it's already rooted, should I expect it to sell for more or less? Maybe install Lineage 16.0 and everything? I'm guessing best case, it'll have a neutral effect, and at worst, might alienate some buyers.

>>
>>68033639
from what I understand it's a great option, screen is good for an LCD, stereo speakers, headphone jack with DAC, mSD support, main issue for some reason is a complete lack of ROM support even though all the source code has been released since day one and apparently it's having issues with Treble GSIs, someone on XDA is going to have to put out a bounty to entice some developers
But it does have a working GCam port, TWRP, and apparently has an official apk from Asus to unlock the bootloader
only issue is that OTA updates stop as soon as you use the apk
>>
>>68033209
I did. It's better, but not good enough. It works in low light, but it's kind of slow. Some shots are good.

The front camera, though, is just irredeemable.
>>
>>68033731
did you get the best reported GCam on XDA? how many ports have you tried? or did you just see one mentioned and just went with that and didn't even bother trying to see which one might perform better?
>>
>>68033747
I checked out most of them, including the one recommended for the G6. As I said, it's great for low light, and it does a way better job with exposure, but it still isn't ideal compared to some other phones of its price range.
>>
How do I get started with custom firmware?
My phone is a Nexus 4 and its just starting to become sluggish in ways that it really shouldn't be.
Yes, I know its ancient by smartphone standards but I hate the idea of upgrading if its still functional. I don't see why it shouldn't be able to run smoothly for all the basic operations that I use the phone for (internet browsing, reading pdfs, 4chan/reddit apps, youtube).

Can I hope to improve performance drastically with custom firmware, something that is more optimized?
>>
Please restart camera
Please restart camera

Piece of fucking shit
>>
>>68033792
I don't know how it's possible that the camera sensors and GCam ports for a G6 could perform worse than sensors and GCam ports for the Moto G5+, that makes absolutely no sense
>>
>>68033806
if you're going to bitch about an issue, at least learn to take a screen shot for proof that it's actually happening
>>
>>68033818
I don't know since I have never owned a Moto G5+, but I had a Moto Z2 Play which had a more consistent output.
I think the problem is that it's always easier to use the stock app, and LG's image processing is trash. The sensor itself is good.
>>
>>68033861
that's fucking odd, i mean camera2api is enabled, right? and you're using a 64-bit ROM with the proper GCam mod?
>>
>>68033806
I have a moto g5+ and I've never heard about a camera issue. What causes it?
>>
>>68033884
i have a G5+ too and never have this issue, it's FUD because he can't even take a fucking screenshot with the error message he's claiming
>>
>>68033895
I don't see why he would lie about it. It could easily be something like a loose cable to the camera module or something else specific to his device.
>>
>>68033911
because if you make a claim without proof it's called crying wolf or FUD
>>
>>68033923
I really don't think it's a significant enough claim to require proof or be considered FUD. He's sharing a personal anecdote that doesn't really have any bearing on us, and you're getting a little too upset and defensive about it.

Tbh, I'm not sure. I'm using the stock ROM with Oreo. I haven't touched anything besides that. I will look into it.

Pic related is a picture taken from my older Moto Z2 Play. Maybe nostalgia is blinding me, but I thought it looked way better back then. It may also be the fact that the G6's screen is so good that anything that is not great looks bad on it.

>>68034098
fuck that, I'd get a Moto Z2 Force, camera is better than the Play and it can be had for cheap, slap the power pack mod on, if you didn't go full retard and get rid of it, and get the phone you like back
>>
>>68034143
The Z3 Play is probably an even better deal, since it has a better camera than the Z2 Force, and better battery life. I lost my Z2 to some crackheads a while ago. Man, that was a great phone. Great battery life, great screen, great camera, no bloat... I just wish it had water resistance (which the Z3 still doesn't have).
>>
Daily reminder that when AMD releases their phone it's gonna BTFO all other android vendors

>>68034176
Moto wants to much for the Z3 Play so I refuse to recommend it, it literally has the same SoC as the $200 memephone and they want at least $180 on top of that deoending on who sells it
GCam on the Z2 Force works wonders

>>
>>68034418
Like two weeks. Honestly, I'm not sure I would recommend it.
The screen is great, and the phone is beautiful, but man, are there some drawbacks:
First of all, the battery life just seems wrong. I think it's the screen, or the hundred apps running in the background, but it's just not good. I can never keep a charge for a whole day.
Then there's the camera. You actually need the Gcam, apparently, or else everything looks watercolor brushed. The front camera is just embarassing, especially in low light.
The software is also bad. LG has some weird things, like, you can't adjust the resolution without ADB like you can in Samsung phones. You can't set the phone to gesture navigation in Oreo. There's no display calibration setting.
The good thing about it is the screen, but even then, it's hard to find HDR content for it.

I'm not saying I regret buying it, but I will be very happy to move away from it as soon as possible. I will only miss the wide angle camera, I think, since the 2:1 display is the norm now.

why do you want a 5s when you can get a 7 for $350

Okay, so the deal is, I can get a used z3c for about 90$ here, question is, whether I should go for it, or get whichever iphone in this price range.
I might just settle for a ip4/4s for~50 though, I'm not that well off anyways; the only thing that irks me was the storage really.

implying ram above 6gb, a pen, and 512gb storage matters
:^)

Need to buy an easy to use phone for my grandpa. Is mi a2 lite 3gb a good choice in the sub €200 range? He'll use it for emails, photos and gmaps.

Best overall phone for ~$300?

imo, notch on phone doesn't really matter much if they have other redeeming features. the pocomeme has sd845 with 6gb ram, usb-c but still have headphone jack, sd slot, 4k battery and the price isn't too expensive.
the pixel 3 xl on the other hand...

how long does your battery life last? Are there any stutters or lag so far? my s7 is going a bit downhill and it's only been 2 years, I really want to go 3+ years on the same phone, and the note 9 looks like the perfect phone (except the Samsung lag is a concern).
