Essential Phone review: Impressive for a new company but not competitive

With the Note 8, Samsung No Longer Delivers Embarrassing Real-World Performance [Comparing Note 8, Pixel XL, OnePlus 5]

Apple iPhone 8 Plus review

Huawei silently launches the Nova 2i

Alleged Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 renders show dual camera setup and a near bezel-less design

>> No.62757837

I've been lurking the Google Pixel 2 launch for an entire year to replace my Xperia Z1, but holy shit is the standard version expensive as shit in yuropoorland (800€)

Just took a quick glimpse into AnTuTu and other benchmark websites, OnePlus5 seems to be the king, and in terms of price it's amazing too, not expensive at all for what it benchmarks...only one bad thing though...

No Qi Charging, seriously, I want wireless charging because all my cables get destroyed either due to the edges of our tables or because my cat chews on it, and it's very practical to pick it up whenever you're in bed just to check time without having to adjust yourself due to the cable getting stuck somewhere...

I don't want to go with Samsung, in terms of performance and features, it doesn't seem to be worth it in comparison to a lot of other phones for the expensive price they're asking for, plus, I want a rooted phone...

Are there seriously no High End, Rooted, QiCharge (can be third party with case), with justified price in this fucking market?

How do I purchase apps from the japanese playstore?

I already tried following a guide. Used VPN, created new google account and was able to access the japanese playstore with it.
When I tried to purchase an app, added my credit card information and selected my home country for the cc information, all screens refreshed in a very suspicious way.

Indeed my japanese google account was rewritten into a german one (wtf!).

So how do you actually pay for japanese apps?

You need to have a Japanese payment option (like a japanese-registered credit card) to purchase from the Japanese plays store.

Easiest way is to buy yen-denominated Google Play gift cards from japan

Why so many people prefer Samsung over Sony is beyond me.

I am Sony fanboy, and for no good reason too, but I just don't see what Samsung brings to the table other than its oled screen.

Its just nickel and diming people. Your phone becomes marginally cheaper to make, you dont have to pack in earbuds making it marginally cheaper. And if you are a big company you can sell bluetooth headphones.
All while the prices of phones are actually going up

On principle you should be against it, even if it doesnt effect you.

I'm about to order the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 (6.44 inch phablet with 5.300 mAh battery and SD 625, but it could be better in terms of hardware, for example having a better SoC or an amoled screen would be great. I am willing to pay more, the Mi Max is sold for only 210€ after all, but there is like no real alternative. The first Mi max has a better SoC, but it costs the same and has a worse battery. The Huawei Honor Note 8 has a better SoC and is 0.2" bigger but has a worse battery and it costs 100€ more.

Is there a similar phablet (=<6 inch) which I could consider? Battery should be at least 4.400 mAh and SoC on par with Sd 625 / Kirin 955.

I'm still using my old device an am willing to wait a few months for bew phones to be released if anyone knows something..

Battery life and camera are biggest concerns. Just about every modern phone seems to have enough power for what I do (Browsing, music, texts, calls etc)

Burn in is caused by different areas of the screen being used unevenly. It doesn't matter whether it's white on black or black on white.

Also yeah, the V30 is very similar specwise to the Pixel 2. LG makes both of them, same p-oled screens, same 835 snapdragon, 4gbs of ram.

But V30 has microSD, audio DAC, headphone jack, higher water resistance, rated for shock resistance, wireless charging, longer warranty, dual cameras with bigger lens aperture.

While the Pixel 2 has stereo speakers, stock android and the few walled off google features.

I agree the Pixel 2 was really lackluster, especially when the feature packed sister device v30 is out there.

I have an iPhone 6 (non-S) with a depleted battery that can't hold a charge for more than 10 minutes. I have to carry around a USB power bank in my pocket wherever I go just to keep my phone on. Should I:

A) Spend $25 on an ifixit iPhone 6 battery replacement kit and fix it myself
B) Switch to T-Mobile, trade in my iPhone 6 for a $300 credit and put it towards a $700 iPhone 8
C) Switch to T-Mobile, trade in my iPhone 6 for a ~$120 credit, put it towards a Pixel 2 and get an extra $325 credit on top of that plus a free Google botnet listening device
D) Switch to Verizon, trade in my iPhone 6 for a ~$140 credit, put it towards a LG V30 and get an extra $200 credit and free Google VR headset
E) Same as option C) or D except with a different android phone like the SGN8 or SG8 without the extra $325 credit or free Google products
F) Hold out another month and hope there are better holiday deals (last year T-mobile was giving away phones for free)

I ended my grandfathered unlimited plan with AT&T because they were reaming me with the bill, temporarily I'm on a cheaper prepaid plan with a data cap.
I need to switch to either T-Mobile (cheaper plan with Unlimited Data) or Verizon (more expensive plan with a 5GB data cap)

The Pixel 2 has ugly bezels for a 2017 phone and also lacks the headphone port, but for only ~$205 it's too good of a deal to pass up and will also hold it's value better than any other android phone before I trade it in for a future phone.

You shouldn't really worry about storage limits unless you're a business or photographer who backs up everything.

Normally by the time you get even a fraction of the way through your storage allowance as an average user, they bump the base/free amount up because mass storage continues to get cheaper.

>Mi A1 doesn't have NFC

Literally why. If it just had that one extra feature I'd buy my entire family one of their own, parents especially because they're after a decent phone after 4 years of budget samsung phones that are unusable due to performance and storage limits.

On that topic, though, are there any upcoming low/mid-range phones (sub-£250 off-contract) that are worth looking at, I don't follow the budget end of the spectrum at all other than when I need to renew family contracts.

Stock android is pretty much a must, unfortunately, so that rules out most of the chink shit except for the new Mi A1. Just a shame about the NFC, it kind of rules it out for me but my family members may still be interested in it.

Can you post a picture of it in your palm or with a ruler next to it? I'm in the market for another powerbank since I gave my last cheap Xiaomi one to a family member for pokemon go when it came out.

Was my first experience with the company (never heard of them before) and I was really surprised by how good it was.

I just got a replacement Samsung phone, the same one I had before. Why is the bicycle bell sound gone? That was the one I used, how can I get it back

>> No.62774922

I finally did it. My Samsung Galaxy S2 plus fell out of my hand and now there are not only cracks on the glass but also on the screen. I want to be reachable as soon as possible so I'll need a new phone.
The budget of my phone should be about 200-300 bucks. My top priority is a decent battery which I want to be able to replace whenever I need or want. The phone should do its price justice, you know?
In conclusion please give me your best advice. I was looking into the moto G series and these seem really cool. The moto G4plus looked great but no replaceable batteries.

Z3c is my current daily driver but I'll have to switch soon because the screen started peeling off again (twice in warranty, now it's not covered anymore) and the USB flap broke...
Also only 11gb of free space is starting to be too little.

Too bad because battery life is still quite good for an almost 3 years old phone

Does keeping the battery under 80% really make the battery last longer or is it just a meme?

>> No.62775076

It's a meme. The difference it makes is so small that it's not really worth it to gimp your battery like that.

Sony is god tier but they sell their better camera sensors to Samsung and their design department is ran by gaijinhating cavedwellers who haven't changed a damn thing since 2012
They also price their phones far above their worth

Literally nothing wrong with Sony's design

How scratch resistant is the Note 8s screen?
I us a S7 edge and the screen gets scratched easily while I keep it in the original samsung cover and do not place it in a pocket with keys.
Those are just microscratches but it still annoys me.
I also can't find a decent glass like screenprotector without making any compromises, has anyone had luck finding a good one?

So I'm looking to get a phone in England, T-Mobile for carrier since I've never really used anything else but if there's something better I could. I had a dumb(?) phone before it died on me and my mom gave me a smartphone she got for free, I've never really cared for smartphones and I don't know shit. Which means I don't know shit about features. For the price, I guess I can go up to 1000 pounds, and I don't see why size is important.

Lads my phone just died this morning (Lumia 640). Its been crashing and having a bunch of issues recently anyway.

I need a new phone fairly quickly. Budget up to £400. If there's a solid phone for cheaper dont mind saving a few coppers though.

Wants: Basic sensors (gyro, compass etc), some phones miss stupid shit like compasses. Fairly decent performance for music, browsing, light gaming and good battery life.

Would prefer something I can buy in the UK over chink phones. Interested in the Nokia 6 at the minute but seeing mixed reviews
