>>62420854HTC has terminal cancer.
>>62420917not while they're making Pixels they don't
the fuck is up with used phone prices. $40+ for galaxy ace 4. it's an ace 4 not an s4. ridiculous prices even for horribly outdated shit like s2
>still no Nokia 7I'm gonna buy the x compact instead I guess. Or the x and go with sailfish OS.
>>62420811I'm actually considering buying the iPhone X because I been wanting a phone that isn't just android. My HTC One M9 is a literal dumpster fire. This thing is like holding hot cup of water for hours on end and the camera quality is garbage. The property software is everywhere like the bullshit ATT apps they preloaded and have to disable them in settings and do not plan to root because of my family photos and other important documents on my phone. The only good thing about this phone is the DAC and the speakers.I love Android but I want to try iOS for a change and i do not care for the price, just want to try their new flagship, see how it is, if it shit I'll just return it for my money and get a Samsung note 8
>>62420953It's supposed to release next year in January
Saw some anon talking about the amazon prime deal smartphones last thread, thought it seems like a cool idea since you can pay to remove the ad stuff. Just noticed though that it looks like it comes with non-ad shit installed; now I wonder if you can actually remove that crap or if it's permanently built into the OS.
>>62421014>complains about bloatware>if it shit I'll just return it for my money and get a Samsung note 8>kek
>>62421014Look at the into getting a pixle if you want to experience android
What kind of phone should I buy? On ATT, unlimited budget but still want to get my money's worth. Must have a headphone jack and last me hopefully 3 years. Plz no apple products
>>62421022>thought it seems like a cool idea since you can pay to remove the ad stuff.nigga whatthe discount you get for allowing the ads is the whole point
>>62421115Lg v30 since you clearly don't want s8.
>>62421124I'm saying it's cool because you can save now and if it TRULY annoys you, you can get it gone later.
>>62420901Nobody will buy the v30 because it looks just like a S8 except the S8 has better specs and only 500bucks BRAND NEW.
[spoiler]The LG v30 seems too good to be true, honestly.Or maybe it's a PS4 situation where it's simply good by default since the competition shit the bed.[/spoiler]
>>62421055>shitty bezels >weird design>no water resistant>jewgle botnet Yeah, no thanks anon
>>62421115S8 with a case and screen protector. Still cheaper and better than the v30.
is motto g5 plus or g4 plus better/
>>62421184>only 500bucks BRAND NEWnice meme
>>62421184Why would anyone pay more than $300 for a smartphone?
I'm currently using a moto g2 and want to switch to something similar but obviously better. Turns out I can get moto g5 (3gb version, not plus) for relatively cheap. Any reason not to get it? Is it decent enough for its price? Any better alternatives?
>>62421283Oh boy op.Tmobile unlocks super easy.>>62421290Some people do some dont.
>>62421290$400+ gets you flagship-tier specs. better soc, screen, camera
I'm considering getting the p10 lite or p9. I'm more considered about battery life than performance. What alternatives should i consider at the same price range?
>>62421357fucking dodgy literally whos don't count. try real stores like amazon

>>62421523?I posted a picture to brand new devices. Cheaper than Amazon and brand new.
>>62421543read the sticker. the seller is dodgy as fuck. you don't know if they're stolen or if they get hobos to sign up for contracts and cops track you down and take the phone from you
Question. How good is lineageos at security updates? How long is it gonna take them to patch out that Bluetooth exploit for instance? If I root the new pixel to remove gapps, am I fucked out of getting updates?
>>62421560Oh. All those sellers? Also, all the phones on the site?495$ guy has 200+ reviews 5star
I've never owned anything but Motorola phones (Razr, OG Droid, Droid 4, Droid Turbo 2) and I'm in the market for a new phone but good God Motorola has gone to shit. Moto Mods are the stupidest shit on the planet. All the phones look like shit with those exposed pins (or whatever they are) and huge ass camera bumps, and all the mods are fucking retarded (gay ass garbage brand speakers, a bigger battery when the droid turbo 2 already had a big ass battery without looking like a turtle, and none of the new motorola phones have these sexy backs.I fucking loved my turbo 2 (had some complaints but the pros far outweighed the cons) and now I need a new phone after Jamal swiped my shit, but everything feels like a letdown in some way (I can't even go back to 1080x1920.) The Galaxy S8+ looks good on paper but it has an ugly back and>touchjizzWhat do, /spg/?
>>62421613"lightning controls"the ones that claim mint instead of new might be legit
>>62421560>>62421625Are you a different anon?
Had a go of a Mi6 in a Xiaomi store today and it was much smaller than I thought. Also, the store said that they don't do refunds. Not sure I could bring myself to buy it. If I do, I'll buy it from HK Goldway when I'm back in the UK so I at least have a chance of returning it if it's DOA
Looking to buy a new phone, tired of using iphone(currently have an iphone 6 plus), is the s8+ any good? Was also thinking of getting the OP5, that phone worth a look?
>>62421933Jelly screen lottery for OP5. Don't recommend. Note 8 or Pixel
To those who use phone cases, do you use generic ones or specialty ones (ex. those panatone iphone cases)
>>62422013Generic onesAs long as they go over the screen I'm not terrible fussedI don't do silicone cases because they warp about 30 seconds after putting them on, but I like TPU cases
Opinions on refurbished Nokia 3310 on Aliexpress for 18.33?
>>62420901What is your opinion on the underpowered SD625?
>>62420901I agree with most, but OP2 was much worse than OP5
>>62421618Just use a style shell. Exposed pins, gone. Camera bump, gone.
>>62421952>Jelly screen lotteryWhat lottery? They all have the jelly screen
>>62422243for what purpose?i got a snapdragon 400 phone for $14 but i guess that was a fluke
>>62422458Different times buddy...The OP2 was meh but the company was new and they were still learning things, plus, the phone was fucking cheap.The OP5 feels out of the club because it lacks an edge to edge display like the best flagships of this year.That and the iPhone look killed the OP5 this year for me.
>>62422429Not underpowered, enough for most users actually.
I'm a complete tardo when it comes to phone rooting. Can anyone spoonfeed me a good guide for the S5 active?
will anything happen if i root my friend's prime deal phone?
>android 6>most devices comes with unlockable bootloader and rootable>xposed>immersive mode>desktop tabs on browser>per app dpi>gravity box, xprivscy, and various other gems >android 7>bootloader locked>rooting requires exploit>no properly working xposed in sight>only way to somewhat get around it is to pay $1000 for a pixel
Note 8 just shipped, it better arrive tomorrow and not on monday.I haven't really looked into it because my phone never got android 4 or higher.But can you use an external screen as a secondary screen? Not just mirroring.
>>62420811Getting my first smartphone soon and have been lurking this general for a while, but want this one question answered in real-time. How many gigs of RAM are ideal for a phone? Specifically if I plan to install games and emulators?
>>624228984-63 if you're on a tight budget
>>62422910There really games that need more than 4 gigs?
>>62422898onePlus 5 here>8gb of ram or life is not worth living
>>62422920maybe not but you'll have more than just the game. don't pay extra for the 6 gb version if the base model has 4 gb but high end phones come with 6 gb on the base model these days
>>62422608https://theunlockr.com/2014/10/13/how-to-root-the-samsung-galaxy-s5-active-2/ Gotta have the supported model of phone, though.

>>62423086Asus was about to make one, zenfone zoom s, but I guess there isn't a market for so small phones.
>>62423114there is a market, everyone are just being big phone fags
>lol ur dad wus russian>you're banned federally
>>62423086The battery is the problem right there. Hard to fit it into smaller phones. And pretty much overpowered imho. Remember that with a smaller screen comes less power consumption. Closest bets to your demand right now: Google pixel or Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime
Buying a phone for my Mum, to replace her 3 year old HTC ONE(???) it has to justwerk, good battery, decently big screen and specs that will last for a while, I'm looking at the lenovo P2, any other suggestions?

>>62423151Not big enough for it to be profitable
>>62423309Can anyone help me out here? I was thinking about getting her the new Xiaomi phone but I think I need something with a warranty in case she drops it in the toilet or some bullshit.

>>62423598screen too big
>>62423653But 5.5" is the sweet spot unless you go bezelless
>>62423689already have a 5.5" phone and i find the screen to big, want it smaller. I dont watch videos or browse much on my phone I use my tablet for that.
does anyone have the redmi 4x? if yes, can you comment on the device's temperature? I'm about to puchase it, but I see a lot of complaints about it running overly hot for no reason
>>62423862Get the redmi note 4x you twat
>>62423086Closest I can think of right now is the bq aquaris x
>>62424073wow the BQ Aquaris X Pro seems perfect, where the fuck do you buy them? cant find them anywhere.
>>62423982when my hands grow the size of plates and pigs fly, I'll get a 5.5" phoneuntil then, how about we talk about the 4x
>>62423338>>62423366kill yourself, battery capacity is measured in mAh for consumer electronics
>>62424170get a redmi 4 prime/pro instead, just a little big more expensive but you get a vastly superior phone
>>62424170Handlet get out.
>>62424116They are euro only pretty much. In the German caliphate I can find it on amazon or their official website. Allahu Akbar.
Is Oneplus 3T still worth buying in 2017? Will it have more longevity than iPhones in the same generation?
>>62424206It's sold out nation-wide and I need a new phone ASAP, so no time (or money) for a highly-taxed import
>>62422711Xiaomi doesn't have this problem.Currently have root and xposed on Android 7.0. when i get my mi mix 2 it will be bootloader unlocked and rooted within minutes because all their phones are the same. Xmiui is a nice xposed module
>>62424246Oreo is the last official update it's getting, but I'll be supported in the form of custom ROMs for years ahead
The Xperia XZ1 doesn't release in December or November does it?!
>>62424446>within minutesExcept for the 72h pairing time
What should I do now that I'm rooted? I feel like all the old cool stuff is just standard features now
My 5X died yesterday, it's now stuck in an eternal bootloop and won't be recognised by ADB, even in recovery mode (but fastboot sees the bootloader). I'm in the UK, should I wait for LG v30 bought outright or go for something else? Almost pushed the button on a LG G6 last night but held off.
LG V20 masterrace reporting in. Just wanted to let all you iCucks and Samshit users who the real big dog is in the smartphone world.
>>62424681Contact Google, try to get them send you a Pixel
Why isn't the iPhone X the best smartphone right now?
>>62424724All their support sites are sending me to LG instead, who I guess are unlikely to send me a pixel.(on top of that, I can't get into my amazon account to get the order page thanks to 2FA being enabled and no phone to generate the code)
I currently own a Samsung Galaxy S Advance.A friend offered me a barely used Moto G4 for roughly 100 bucks. I'm tight on money so although my current phone hangs a lot, I'm not sure if the Moto would be worth the investment.Would it even be a hardware upgrade? Seems to be a budget phone. If it barely manages to run even a browser I should keep the money and try saving for something better.
>>62424934Just save for something better. It's never worth going from one budget phone that barely does what you want, to a other budget phone that is marginally better.$220 will get you an LG G Stylo 3 Plus via TMobile. Around the same will get you a Samsung J7.
>>62424771keep pestering them, I know a lot of the people with bootlooping Nexus 6Ps have been sent Pixel XLs to replace them. Maybe send them a tweet, it's bad PR for them if they don't replace it.
>>62420811I ordered a Xiaomi Redmi 4x from gearbest. It's my first chinkphone.Does it really take them weeks to just dispatch it like I've read online?I ordered DHL delivery. How likely is it that I'll have to pay import tax? (here in Ireland it's very rare for imports to catch you)
>>62425062DHL means import taxes are pretty much 100% guaranteed.
>>62425062Mine took about 10 days to arrive with DHL. No additional taxes (In Germany)
>>62425071Do DHL add any other charges on top of import? Do I pay on my doorstep or do I have to pay before I get my item? Whats the best postage option to escape customs and not take forever?
>>62425099yeah I think DHL adds their own charges too. The slower shipping options are more likely to escape customs
>>6242509510 days after ordering, or after dispatch?
money isn't really that big of a deal in this caseI've been using Note 4 for past few years, I'm now buying either s8,s8+,or note 8... Would I have trouble getting used to s8 smaller size? And should I wait for note or just get s8+ if that's the better option?Thanks reddit.
What's a /g/ approved video player for android?
>>62425099pretty sure that depends on your country.>>62425029thanks. i'll look into the alternatives then
>>62424246Bought mine in July. This is gonna have custom rom support for years
>>62424724Too bad that only works if you bought from Google
>>62425176Note 8 is pretty much s8+ with the pen and extra cost
>>62424745If it's running Android it will be.
>>62424526Not sure but I want the xz1 compact. Currently have a z2 since launch. Still get kick battery life on this phone.

Should I hold on to my money until USB type C becomes the norm across all budget tiers?
>>62424246iPhone will always last longer. Longer support and better build quality. I doubt the 3T will even be supported next year.
I have a few questions1) can anyone find the outright buying price of the OP3T on O2 in the UK?2) what version equivalent is oxygen OS on i.e is it similar to android 7 or 63) USB type c mean I'll need new cable right? they don't work with micro usb do they?

Does anybody here have a LeEco Le Max 2? What are your opinions?Everything I've read says it's a decent phone but thought I'd ask for more opinions
>>62425864>PAYGdoes this mean just buying it?also I heard rooting doesn't void warranty is this still true if bought through O2?
>>62425908Das just 50 euros more mane. Hold on to your money until then. Or buy some chinkphone that has all that you want and more for less money
>>62425892Well then save more money. Because unless you're willing to let go of the stock Android/easy to flash Android requirements, you're looking at a minimum $300 phone.
>>62425814Mi A1 or Redmi Note 4 Global
>>62425938>>62425936jesus fuck, then for 220-250 what would make a solid choice?

>>62425954chink phone with on screen buttons?
>>62425954>Redmi Note 4 GlobalIs twice as cheaper than A1. Glorious advice!
>>62425925Yeah, I think you can just buy it outright. Rooting shouldn't void warranty, I'd assume it's up to Oneplus to make that decision, not O2.
>>62426000alright thanks, I'll nip down to the shop at weekend
>>62425978Mi A1 is the stock android that you want though

do OP3T batteries really degrade as quickly as people on reddit claim? how do I stop it degrading quickly?
What is the best smartphone i can get with 400$?
>>62426488Bump Want to know about this too
Wanting a new phone 'round Xmas time. Living in the US of A, with AT&T as my carrier. Budget is not an issue, really.I'll be upgrading from a Note 4. I don't think I much care about size and the pen functionality in the Note isn't at a feature I need. Better battery life would be ideal, but I think there's kind of a standard across all phones at this point. I'm not a huge fan of Samsung's TouchWiz, but if they're making the best phones, then I'm willing to suck it up and deal with it. Ability to root would be a nice bonus.What buy?
>>62426488Either change the battery after some time, or don't use Dash Charge.
>>62426992>don't use Dash Chargecan you just turn it off in the settings?
Is there a phone with a dedicated camera button and a silent mode on/off switch?
>>62427007Off course you can, that shit overheats the battery af.
>>62427034don't think there is a phone that has both. you can use the volume buttons to take photos on many phones though
What do we think of the OnePlus 5? Is there a good reason to not get this phone?
>>62427092There is, Zenfone 4 Pro.
>Not more than 5" display size>Not less than 3000 mAh in battery capacity>3.5mm jack>USB Type C port; at least 3.0>Stock Android; will receive future updates>Has both a dedicated camera button and a silent mode on/off switch>No biometric security systems>Has IR blaster>Has NFC>MIL-STD-810G compliant>IP68 certifiedDoes such a phone exist?
>>62427223The 3.0 type C port isn't that common, together with sotck android, IR blaster and IP68, the closest thing i can think of is the G6 or the V30.
>>62427199Physically, these two phones look suspiciously similar.I'll keep an eye out for reviews though on the Zenfone. One of the main things I wasn't happy about with the OP was the lack of an mSD card slot, and the Zenfone has one while being relatively the same otherwise.Thanks for the heads up on it, there's too much shit to keep track of.
Why haven't Sony and HTC and Blackberry given up on the phone market yet? Are they not bleeding cash year after year since Apple and Samsung rekt them all?
>>62427202When's the last time you've used the IR blaster on a phone? I don't think I've ever used mine.
>>62427339Fucking with others' television sets
>>62427351So not an actual use case beyond childish pranks?
Post your home screens, no cleaning.
>>62427327You're welcome, also take a look at the ZenUI, they have some cool features, use gsmarena to compare phones.
I don't get the metal and glass "premium build" meme. Plastic is fantastic desu. Those Lumia phones got it right, at least for their materials and build quality.
>smaller than 5">headphone jack>max 300€>androidWhat are my options? So far I'm zoning in on Xperia x compact, but are there any similar options? I don't want it to get outdated too quickly. The size is the most important factor, last phone was 5"2 (right now on borrowed old iPhone) and I remember finding it too large for me.
>>62427464Galaxy A3 2017. That's pretty much it
>>62427464You could look into the g6 I am a manlet like you who enjoyed his small phones I find the g6 quite comfy or else look into xz1 compact
>>62427498>>62427491Alright, thanks. Still leaning towards the X compact, are there any major reasons for me to not buy that phone? I've been satisfied with my sonys before, but they were flagships iirc (Xperia arc s, Xperia z2) so I will expect less from this one.
>>62422429Underpowered for what?
>>62427655The battery is too small the performance will be fine for day to day use
I'm a poor fag still using an S5 but I want a new phone with a good camera, what's the best 300 dollar or less phone? I'm willing to go second hand as there's some good vendors nearby with a 2 year warranty on used tech

>>62425914Pretty good phone for the price, I got an score of 136000 on AntutuThe only problem is battery life but that's because I'm obsessed with heavy demanding games and with quick charge 3.0 is not a big deal
>>62428594>4channel>2013 + 4>not completely reddited up the ass on every single major boardwew
>>62428749Meh, /o/ and /ck/ aren't so bad
I've just got Mi 4, it still looks like the best phone for the price? Did I do good ;_;? Linageos was a must.
>>62428837how much did you pay?
>>62427407Smart Launcher Pro 3
>>62428910About 210$, converted from TRY.
>tfw Verizon Fucking shit
>>62428936you paid $210 for a three year old chinkphone? not good, not good at all.
>>62428951Verizon is the ultimate fun-killer.Not sure who I'm swapping to once I get a new phone, but I know I'm not sticking with this cunt carrier.
>>62428970Is the age that important? Mi 4 was the cheapest phone with 3 GB RAM, linageos support and a decent chipset. It looks like LG G3 with a lower resolution screen.
>>62429014Can you give me reasons why verizon is so shitty and what a better alternative would be?
>>62429014Fuck, why are they shit? I have to swap to them when I move. Now I'm looking into project fi.
>>62429052CDMA and they only allow certain phone manufacturers to use their services. For example I wanted the oneplus 3t but can't because you can't get 4glte or any form of data on it. The worst part is when you live out in the middle of nowhere you have no choice but to deal with them
>>62429052Chinks phone don't work with VerizonHell, half of the the phones Euros and Asians keep posting in these threads don't work with Verizon
>>62429052>>62429091Verizon locks down any phone bought through them (permanently), and prevents the majority of unlockable/rootable devices from being brought to their network if you decide to buy them outside of Verizon. Even if you don't plan on rooting or unlocking your phone, you straight-up can't use it on Verizon.I can't comment on their value (or lack thereof) in terms of plan costs or whatever, but the fact that they absolutely fuck over any device you want to use is unacceptable to me.
>>62420811Xperia L1 or XA1?Which and why?
>>62429091They're shit because they lock ALL the phones down except for the iPhone, you are stuck with whatever they offer because lelCDMA, they're also the worst big company that you can get prepaid from, anyone that isn't a post paid customer is limited to 5Mbps down and 1Mbps upThe best prepaid people are GSM (AT&T/T-Mo)
>>62429094>>62429117>>62429123All of these reasons are retarded, except CDMA
>>62429148>>>62429094>>>62429117>>>62429123>All of these reasons are retarded, except CDMA>choices are for faggotsYou're a moron
>>62429162Choices are for faggots. Straight men have no choice but missionary vag sex retard
>>62429123>>62429144Thanks anon, appreciate it
So I just got these.Jesus christ VR sucks ass, don't buy into the hype.Higher resolution than the oculus rift, still able to count every pixel.Apart from that the experience really isn't special, like sitting very close to a 3d screen. I don't understand those people losing their shit over some shitty rollercoaster video
>>62429341>tfw still not available in MexicoI know it's the same shit as the G5 plus but with a better camera, but I'm still waiting to upgrade to something
>>62429337roomscale VR is goodI've tried the Rift and the Oculus, both are basically the same, and both are infinitely better than phone """VR"""I'm not saying it's not a gimmickBut it's definitely more than people like to say it is. When you can actually interact with what's being displayed and the environment, it's miles better than just being able to move your head around a bit to change the view while sitting/standing in place. From experience I can say the screen-door effect is minimized as well when you're actively engaged in the game. NOT to say that the effect isn't there; just that it's not blatant while playing.Different beasts entirely, imo.
>>62422506Phone-thinness that was part of the whole gimmick of the phone, gone.
I have a Moto X Play, now cracked, but I have no idea if I want to replace this thingThe screen is 5.5, its fast, the battery is huge, it was cheap, its stock android. What do I even upgrade to?
>>62429421You realise motomods are the reason they made the phone as thin as possible?
>>62429655Why not get the same model if you like the one you have?
>>62429861I don't think you can buy it anymorePreferably it would be nice if there was something that also had a huge battery, and running better/more up to date specs
i just googled moto z play. Any reason i should pick full "z" instead of z play?>z has 4k display, i don't need it>z has also better soc, i guess i could want this one>z play has better battery, headphone jack, and mods are supposedly working the same way on both devicesSeriously, the only true advantage of big Z is RAM and camera (supposedly Z has less megapixels and brighter optics). I'm interested in buying one of those because of this keyboard add-on, so i might want it to live as long as possible and more ram should make it usable for years to come. It's not like i'm going to get any other unlocked keyboard smartphone in the future.Z or Z play?
>>62429029Are you joking? Redmi note 4 has exactly what you described, newer processor, and has the most custom ROM support out of all the xiaomi phones.
I have the possibility of buying a new n9 because I always wanted to have one.being 5 years old is the battery shit or is it good since it was never used?does anyone know? pls help
>>62429981You pretty much answered yourself on the first >.Do you want a 4K screen? If not, Z play.Will you be doing heavy gaming? If not Z play.Do you ABSOLUTELY need the thinnest phone you can get? If not, z play. I don't think there's any reazon to get the regular Z. Oh, the camera is slightly better I guess.
>>62430022nokia n9 I meant the meego option
>>62429140XA1. L1 has shit specs
>>62429987>Mediatek Helio X20 10x 2.1GHz>or>Snapdragon 625 8x 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53Note 4$300Mi4$210>Mi4>Basemark OS II: 1324>Redmi Note 4>Basemark OS II: 1290Hmm. Looks pretty close to me except Note 4 has SD, and fingerprint scanner.
>>62429655Moto Z Play
>>62430077Mi4 also has 5ghz. Note 4 doesn't.
>>62430077>Note 4>$300 wtf are those prices?https://www.kimovil.com/en/where-to-buy-xiaomi-redmi-note-4-global-3gb-32gb
if I flash TWRP and root my phone can I still use full disk encryption?
Why is everyone suggesting the global version of redmi note 4?How can I get one?
>>62427407Live wallpapers are comfy
>>62429981What keyboard addon?
Does anyone have/know about the BlackBerry DTEK60?I had a blackberry years ago and swore to never use the company again because it was supposed to be an iphone competitor yet lagged all the time in basic shit like scrolling through menusApparently this Snapdragon 820 thing does the same - is blackberry really this retarded? can anyone confirm?
>>62430151Because it's the only version that has B20 (used in almost all of Europe) and B4 LTE (used in North and South America). If you live elsewhere then the Note 4X is fine too.
>>62430030>slightly better cameraThat's my main concern. I'm googling samples as we speak and the more samples i see, the more i'm convinced to get normal Z.But then again, i bet 3GB of ram should be enough to take on some kind of android P in the far future, and i don't think i should sacrifice battery life for some camera bullshit. I think i should get Z play after all, i just hope it'll have enough processing power to hold up for years to come.Just to be sure: motomods are single platform and as long as device has the connector, it'll fit? My moto z keyboard will fit in Z2?
>>62430119Local stores in Turkey. It is forbidden for any device that can connect the cellular network to cross the border for retail purposes with any postal service. So you have to shop locally or bring one with you while coming back to Turkey.
>>62429655Nah get a new MotoLots of options now
>current state of applehttp://www.gsmarena.com/iphone_8_and_8_plus_have_smaller_batteries-news-27268.php
>>62430238they're literally all downgrades or equivalents, I can't spend 200/300/400 to get essentially the same phone but without a cracked screen
>>62428594No, my home board is here actually. I browse /v/ once every blue moon, but besides that, it's either here, /mu/, /ck/, or some random board when I have nothing else to do.
>>62430214All motomods fit all Z-series phones
>>62430214Z2 has the same connectors but not the same shape, so I don't think the motomods will be forwards compatible.I may be wrong.
>>62430271You are wrong
>>62430233Should've started off with saying that, because given the choice of importing I don't think you should ever go for the mi4.In your case, yeah you're probably shit out of luck.
>>62430257That phone has a shitty SD615, literally anything would be an upgrade
Rate Redmi 4A
>>62430267alright, thanks. i'll get play for sure then, and when it'll get old i'll just obtain Z2. (although z2 seems to be a flop, supposedly it has some kind of shitty plastic on top of the screen and it gets scratched just from looking at it. anyway, it's good to know that soon-to-be-mine keyboard has some kind of future)
>>62430318>shitty plastic on top of the screenThe whole screen is plastic, that's what makes it shatterproof. Just cover it with a tempered glass protector and you get the best of both worlds.
>>62430287Thanks, I kind of mentioned in previous linked posts where I said I've converted the price from TRY.
>>62430309>literally anything would be an upgradeyou're acting as if its bad thoughits so smooth and buttery. perhaps that's just stock android at play, but I see no point of spending money for small upgradesI think my only alternative is chinkphones but
My nexus 5x died and now I need a new phone. What's a phone that's better for $300 or less. Please no chinkphones.
Just wanted to say the Nextbit Robin is on sale for $130 right now on Amazon and you can easily throw LineageOS on it. Currently the best poorfag phone imho.
Are there any recent phones that allow for 2 mSD cards at once? I'm kind of curious to know what the max storage you can have would be. Highest internal I've seen is 128GB, with 256GB from an SD. So I guess if you had two slots that'd be 640GB.Pretty insane to think about.
Wait for Google's anncoumnet in October 4th.https://madeby.google.com/askmore/
>>62430395>Nextbit Robin>2680 mAhdidnt realise it was still 2012
>>62430426I can't wait to be disappointed again by Google
>>62430427It's $130 faggot who gives a fuck that's literally 90% of the galaxy s8's capacity
>>62430356Sure, that might tell someone that you're in Turkey, not that turkey has pants-on-head retarded import laws on cellphones.But then again, terrorrists.
>>62430395Meh, it's been $110 before
>tfw you want a Sony Xperia body with iPhone X's cameras and Samsung's OLED screen.
>>62430443Why can't they just add an cheaper version to their lineup? Like literally just make the 5x again, upgrade it just a tad for 2017, and call it the Pixel C (compact) or whatever. I don't want all these fancy gigantic phones and I don't give a shit about fucking bezels or 3D scanning or whatever bullshit they put in.
>>62430421No phones with two MicroSD slots. There's a few phones with 256gb internal storage though, and SanDisk recently unveiled a 400gb MicroSD card, so that makes 656gb total storage.
>>62430022>>62430041Does anyone know?it's a basic question
>>62430382>Please no chinkphonesFuck off
does oxygenOS still ship with swiftkey?
why can't there be a non-chinkphone 4000mah phone with snapdragon 800 and 5.5inch Oh wait I'm just poor
>>62430542There's unused ones on Ebay. No idea about the battery.
>>62430543he's right. they're just dodgy give it 5 years and maybe they'll reach Korean-tier and Koreans will reach Apple-tier
>>62430633LeEco Le Pro3 has 4070mah and a SD821 for little over $200
>>62429964Amazon seems to have a few: https://www.google.com/search?q=moto+x+play+amazon&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwii47bCqaXWAhWOLVAKHeOwD5UQ1QIIdigB&biw=1920&bih=1069
>>62430682So is the SD800, what's your point?
Can anyone tell me what would be the 'Thinkpad' of smartphones?
>>62430707I think he meant a SD800-series SoC, not THE SD800 SoC
>>62430744Then he should have been more specific
>>62430715The Helio P20 in the XA1 is equal to a SD625 in performance, whereas the MT6737 in the L1 is below SD425
>>62430687chinkphone but looks tempting. I'll look into it thanks seems it is literally impossible unless chinkphone are there any Xiaomi phones like this?
I'm not seeing a way to connect my phone to pc as USB mass storage device. Is it hidden somewhere or can you force it via some setting or on the side of Windows 7?Honor 7 lite and android 7.0
>>62430793Too bad Sony gimped the battery and there's no quick charge function on the P20
>>62430800It's in the developer settings, find the build number and tap it really fast, you'll see a message stating you're now a developer
>>62430800Androids ditched USB mass storage somewhere around the Galaxy s3 eradumb decision
>>62426150You should have done your research and realized it's a terrible time to buy an iPhone, you could have bought a cheap used phone to get you through until the 8.Only have yourself to blame, baka.
>>62430639that's what I'm saying I don't know if the battery is still good
>>62430823Not there>>62430833Ok, thanks
>>62430796Mi5s Plus or Mi Note 2 perhaps
If I have an S7 Is it worth it upgrading to the S8+ or V30?
