Quick question. My dad wants to get a xiaomi, either a Redmi Note 5 or a Mi A2 because it's what fits his budget, also I know it could be a stupid question but are either of those phones treated as usb devices where you can simply drag and drop music into the phone from the PC when you connect them via USB?

i have a priv. once you go black, you wont go back. never had a phone with a keyboard and come to find out touch keyboards blow ass and button shortcuts will always be more responsive and faster than fullscreen gestures

the benefit is really in the fact that buttons let you interact with your device without being forced to only use visual/spatial nagivation where you have to discern a bunch of high visual clutter design to navigate. press butan, get thing.

i mean, really, it feels like a smartphone from a parallel universe where apple never made the iphone. it's good.

fingerprint sensors are exceptionally sketchy as a method of cryptographic authentication and i will never use them

the benefit of a quick device unlock is really snazzy but the 200ms it takes you to type in a password is not really much of a time saver, let alone a benefit that requires an entire embedded cyptographic authentication platform on every device that is easily fooled by a multitude of non-digital tricks

like people are all about 'i need to use my phone less' but will simultaneously argue that they need their fingerprint sensor because the time saving benefit of a quick unlock has saved almost 30 seconds of usage time in the last year of owning their phone and the most warranted use case for shaving those miliseconds off is to quickly get to the camera and theres like three quick shortcuts for that that all circumvent the lockscreen

Get the Redmi Note 5, it's got expandable storage so you can just put all the music on a MicroSD, they make adapters that allow you to plug a MicroSD card into a pc as if it was a USB drive. And there's also a headphone jack which the Mi A2 doesn't have.

To answer your question, when you plug an Android phone to a Windows PC it uses MTP, which is basically same thing as an USB storage and allows you to drag and drop files.

Please educate yourself on this. And even the name tells you - AOSP (Android Open Source Project). All custom ROMs are open source, meaning everything can be examined (which it is before updates) and be compiled on your own machine as well. There's no blind trust there.

If you buy it locally in Germany then you'll have a proper 2 year warranty and local support

It has all the major bands for Europe. The bands it is missing are mainly used in the Americas.

>And I've heard about an issue with the digitizer making the phone lag, is this a big issue and/or is it fixed?
That's the touch latency issue. The touch display doesn't react to touch as fast on the side edges of the display as it does on elsewhere. Xiaomi have said they're looking in to fixing the issue, but if it's a hardware issue it could be unfixable.

I downloaded an Android app called Twitchdown yesterday that gives you the ability to download full Twitch VODs. I needed to pay €2 for the full version, otherwise the download is capped at 10 minutes. Despite the payment successfully going through and it being unlocked, the restriction still applies. The devs contact email ([email protected]) is not active.

It is an absolute unit, bought one about two oweeks ago, here's my summary:
great display but colors aren't perfect, fast soc, fantastic software and hardware features, great camera.
I got the blue one with 8gb ram on a good deal. The only downside is the size. If you aren't a tall guy I hope you at least have a handbag or jacket pocket to put it in. The one-handed mode is probably a must.
The Samsung experience is as always a bit shit but that's why you got so much power to plow through that shit.
Use a third party camera app if perfect pics are a priority and remember to disable the shitby button. DeX is pretty neat. If you don't wanna have to fiddle around with stuff and have no use for the stylus get the iphone X or Xs for the same price, no other Android is as good as the Note 9 imo so why even bother.

tech illiterate here, i used to root phones in back in the early 2010s (basic bitch stuff) and completely forgot everything about everything. need help rooting my android 5.1 moto x 2013

i followed a 4yr old youtube tutorial and ended up flashing a super old version of twrp...after going into superSU it gave me "root undetected" so i tried again flashing a newer version. after pressing recovery in the bootloader menu it just bypassed twrp and restarted my phone. pretty sure i fuked something up

thoughts?

I'm just thinking if I should cut out the middle man and get it from aliexpress or gearbest for £50 less....or get it here and get a full 2 years, ezpz warranty. If RMA's are a pain I'm not sure I want to throw £300 away and get a new one for the sake of their shitty warranty.

Dear /g/entoomen i have a question for you. I currently have a G6. The shittiest phone on planet. Blurry camera, slow, hogs on battery, fast charged battery last half of the time, slow as fuck.
My carrier (I am italian, based TIM carrier) offered me a mate 10 pro, an s9 and a p20 for the same monthly price. S9 is kind of out of question because i can't stand samsung. Mate 10 pro and p20 are basically the same phone with two different screens. I basically need a phone that can double as a camera. Need good point and shot and a good overhall quality. Low light shots would be appreciated too. What do you guys advices me?

I think most people using it do. To me 4.4 had a really good, functional UI design and everything after felt like a downgrade in that regard, even though they list of capabilities got expanded.

No notch and better screen/body ratio, better looking phone (subjective), has many more 4G/LTE bands (if it applies to you), better speakers. The 2S also has a ceramic body, if you're into that.

On the other hand, Mi 8 has AMOLED screen (which also has its downsides, mind you) and infrared camera phone unlock.

That's basically it, really. Just pick whatever fits you better, they're ultimately very similar phones, as they're both intended to be flagships.

So the XR is a smaller iPhone 8 and a bigger iPhone X with a bigger battery than both, however it has a high price tag of $749 for the base 64gb model. So we're likely going to see a Black Friday deal on this thing because Apple is banking on poor people upgrading
