Old phone appreciation post

My father still uses a Nokia 925, which is close to 5 years old at this point. The power button works only a quarter of the time but you can unlock the screen just by double tapping so still perfectly usable.

Goofed by getting a plus model.
iPhones are reliable and will last you a long time but you can't really do any modifications or anything. There's no Lineage iOS equivalent.
>>
>>65959601
I'm enjoying the stability. My old phone no longer randomly shuts off. What do you do on your phone that you need peak performance all the time, render video? It's a cell phone.
>>
>>65959607
Yeah I was a major tinkerer with my 5x. When It bootlooped I was running Lineage with the ElementalX kernel and was using Nova Launcher, Substratum themes, etc...

I got tired of it, and it drove me to want an iPhone. I want something that actively discourages tinkering. Need less headaches in my life.

Also, what's wrong with the plus model? It has better specs and I wanted a bigger screen.

Got an otterbox defender case for my phone today, didn't realize quite how bulky it was.

My previous case was a good 30-40% thinner, but it cracked after dropping it twice, so I figured I should probably replace it since the rigid plastic outer portion had a very noticeable crack.

Is there anything that comes close to otterbox performance without being as large?

>>65955350
It actually makes a big difference in terms of efficiency, I wouldn't buy anything 28nm in 2018.

>>65955773
XZ2C if you care about the camera, XZ1C if you don't, and rather save a few hundred bucks (or if you want a headphone jack)

>>65956174
What country?

>>65956318
>you don't get LTE at all
That's wrong, certain Xiaomi models do get LTE in the US. The Global versions of Redmi phones and Mi A1 have 1 or 2 4G bands for AT&T and T-Mobile so you can get LTE coverage *depending* on where you live. Then you have Mi Mix 2/2S that have almost every band there is and will have no problem with coverage.

>>65957563
You should easily be able to get OG Google Pixel XL for $500

>>65959607
The regular 6S gets shit tier battery life. Me and my gf were playing Pokémon Go on our phones (I know, >pokemon go in 2018) and by the time her 6S was at 30%, my XZ1C was still at 85%. The Plus version gets way better battery life. Same story with 7/8 vs 7+/8+.
>>
>>65960301
That's almost twice the price of 4x.
>>
>>65960444

I also mentioned similar price. But thanks anyway.
>>
what do you guys think about the p20

>>65960487
Yeah, it doesn't exist, which is why they recommended stuff more expensive.

You likely wont find a OP5t in your price range either, even used.
>>
>>65960499
I guess I will take Redmi 4x in that case.

>You likely wont find a OP5t in your price range either, even used.
That's correct.

Are you me? I upgraded from a Note 4 to an iPhone 8 Plus. I basically killed my Note 4 after years of custom roms, Xposed, and custom kernels. The motherboard eventually died, a hardware fault exasperated by my heavy use. I eventually couldn't even boot.

https://www.pocketables.com/2011/11/how-to-recover-your-bricked-rooted-htc-evo-4g-or-3d.html/amp
These aren't the days of HTC Evo, where some motherboards have been known to bootloop even when the procedures of flashing anything were correct. You clearly don't know what you're talking about and I can only hope you people are getting paid for this.
>>
>>65961378
I know flashing itself didn't kill it. I'm referring to the eMMC issue on Note 4. Some models have a defective one which would gradually slow and eventually stop working entirely.

It would have died eventually, but there are tons of anecdotal reports that OS updates or flashing new ROMs stress it and cause earlier demise.

>>65960412
>The regular 6S gets shit tier battery life
Any small iPhone gets shit battery life, except maybe the SE. I bought an iPhone 8 to replace my Nexus 5X (RIP bootloop). While I appreciate the smoothness and the stability, and while the standby battery life is extremely impressive, I can't actually USE the damn thing without watching the battery charge indicator drop like a rock in a pond. My friend, who has the 8 Plus, doesn't have this problem, but I find that phone offensively large. I wish Apple made these things a little thicker. Would have allowed for a larger battery and no camera bump, win-win.

Hi /spg/

I'm a britbong in need of a new phone, my Nexus 6p has pooped itself into a bricky bootloop that huawei are being slow/reluctant to fix and i'm keen for a change anyway.
I have small palms with long fingers, and the 6p felt slightly unweildy at times.

Options are in pic.
I really like the design of the Nokia XZ1 compact, but i'm not sure if the 720p res display will either bother me or I won't even mind it at all given the small size.

Camera isn't a huge deciding factor for me, so I'm assuming i'd prefer last year's Nokia 8 rather than the new 7 plus.

Internally I'd narrowed it down to XZ1c vs Nokia 8, but am being stupid and missing out on an excellent option from the others in the pic, like the XZ premium or a different brand?

thanks kind anons

Why all the notch hate? It's not the most aesthetically pleasing, sure. But it utilizes that screen space for all the status bar shit, seems good to me. An option to black it out and an option to have videos to not play beyond the notch. So what's the problem?

Apple curves the screen to not have a chin and have the notch there. Android oem's just copies another of apples shitty ideas without going the full distance so you still got a chin. It's same thing as headphone jack.

I can understand putting a notch/removing headphone jack on some low/midrange device targeted towards 3rd world. People want apple but with lower cost. But why on earth would people wan't a bad iphone copy if they still gonna be paying flagship prices.

>>65964554
This could apply for the iphone x, but all the android phone with notch already have a big bottom bezel where they can put the sensors and fron camera like the mi mix, there is no fucking need of a notch in this case, the only ´need´ is to look like the iphone x.

I want a new phone, been looking at the Moto G lineup.

Which one is the best?
G6 Play, G6, or G6 Plus?

I'm not at all a fan of the stupid dual camera lens nonsense, which makes me a little more interested in the G6 Play since it has a single lens camera with higher resolution but I don't know too much about it.

Hey guys my sony z5 i kicking the bucket because of water infiltration
I'm looking for a boxy shapped phone with a decent cam
Resilient to shocks and water (the z5 hold shocks alright but water ....)
Don't care about screen size but between 4"-5" would be perfect
Not above 1080p because i don't care
Need a jack
Bonus point if it got some metal backplate and color option (my current z5 is dark green and it looks great )
Budget is about 600 €
The xz2 would be ok but it's a bit expensive right now and no boxy enough for my taste
Any other idea ?

I need a new phone. Anybody have an LG G6 or V30? My choices are LG, Samshit, or Fapple. I'm using a Samsung S5 right now.

Lame. Like a permanent loop? I can handle a loop or two if I don't have to deal with an S8 or S9. Apple can eat a dick, but those are my choices. What I really want is a phone as durable as the S5, but that doesn't exist anymore. I'm thinking the LG G6 or V30 would be an improvement with their nicer cameras and better placed buttons, even if I'll have to be way more careful with it.

Yeah, they just make a phone case part of the frame. I'd rather just choose my own case. I'd also rather have the option to peel off a broken ballistic glass protector and slap a new one on.

>>
>>65968273
The XZ1 and XZ1 compact have good cameras, the issue is that it's not a dual-camera array so it doesn't have multiple apertures, optical zoom, or bokeh portrait feature. That's why they score an 82 on DXOMark and not a 90+. It's not like the images it produces are shit. They were also the first to do 960fps recording which is a fun gimmick.
>>
>>65969419
i thought it was sony's god awful software

>>
>>65969440
>i thought it was sony's god awful software
Nah. Don't get me wrong, the software is not perfect but before every giant smart phone went to dual camera configurations, Xperias were scoring near the top on DxOMark but now that the testing metrics have been updated to take advantage of the tricks only achievable with a dual camera setup, it's significantly lower.

I haven't specifically seen what improvements the XZ2 has over the XZ1

dxomarks are generally bullshit

it doesnt help that they test phones on bipods and no one takes phone pictures with a bipod

thus the lack of ois hurts xperia pictures even

xperia photos werent generally as bad as most people made them out to be but the low light performance was hilariously bad

google pixel really started this "software" based imaging system and using one for a year really showed me how my previous z5/xz/z1's compared in photo performance.

XZ1C here, got it a couple weeks ago.
It's very, very fast. 720p makes for great battery life and 3D performance, it's a solid portable emulator platform. Really loving the FRP body instead of meme glass, but I did get a case and SP for it anyway. I Installed the UK firmware to enable the fingerprint sensor as well. It has really amazing audio output. I really like the feature that analyzes what's plugged into the headphone jack and equalizes the audio to suit it.

>>65969419
>>65969517
Do you have either phone, or are you just talking out of your ass?

I have a XZ1C and I can tell the you camera is clearly worse than what's on other flagships. Low light photos are especially bad but even daylight photos are *only* decent, when you zoom in you can see a lot of smear, especially stuff like trees.

And the DXO score isn't low because it's single lens, there's other phones with single camera scoring way higher.

why redmi over the se? The battery looks really good on the redmi I suppose
>>
>>65970094
Which Redmi Note 5 are you looking at? The Indian version with a single rear camera (AKA Redmi 5 Plus), or the proper Redmi Note 5 with dual cameras and and SD636?

If the latter then I'd take it over the Mate SE for the better SoC and battery life. Can't really comment on the camera because all the comparisons comparing to Mate SE (AKA Honor 7X) are either then Indian Redmi Note 5 or Redmi Note 5 Pro, which have different cameras to the Chinese/Global Note 5. If you're in the US I'd check the band situation first, Note 5 isn't fully supported on any carrier.
>>
>>65970248
looking at the latter - band situation isn't too bad for where I live. Thanks for all the info mate, do you use a note?
>>
>>65970275
No, don't have either of the phones. Check out Techtablets on Youtube if you want good non-pajeet videos on the Redmi Note 5. He did a review and some camera comparison videos. The Chinese version he has is identical to the Global version, only difference is that the Global version has some extra 4G bands (B4 and B20 being the most important ones).

I had a z2 since launch till I bought a xz1c. I was glad too they went away from the "premium feel" glass back. Shit was annoying to protect.

I have my xz1c in a case with tempered glass. Awesome little phone, 720p screen is not even a thought when using it and makes sense with the whole idea of the phone.

I got my xz1c when the xz2c was announced and reviewed. The no headphone jack was the dealbreaker. Maybe next iteration or two they will throw it back in. The Achilles heel to the xz1c is the camera due to software. Maybe it's fixable by updates? I don't know.
