Which one of these four should I get, I have an experia z1s right now and it's fine but I've got a free upgrade so I'm gonna use it, any opinions or suggestions highly appreciated.
Actually it's fortune you fuckin nerd, god damn u nerds are ridiculous, all I wanted was some suggestions from some tech savvy people and it's just shit talking from kids that have never even kissed a girl
Thank you for an actual reply bro, seriously, I have it down to the G4 or the iphone6s......which would you choose of those two, I will either be jailbreaking or rooting btw, so the bloat ware on the G4 really isn't an issue after the root
Can someone please help me.
First time post.
I got the Z5 premium for christmas and today it stopped charging. I did nothing to the phone. It was next to me on my bed while charging from the laptop. I turned the lap top of which also stopped the charging of the phone. However when I woke up today my phone wont charge no matter how. I tried different methods and different chargers.
Also fuck sony.
Arguably HTC and Motorola are Chinese (RoC and owned by PRC) and the iPhone is made in China, but I meant a mainland Chinese brand.
Xiaomi, Meizu, OnePlus, LeTv, Lenovo, Elephone whatever.
It depends on what you prefer.
Personally I'd take either the HTC or the Samsung. Heck, if I get it for free, I'd get the Samsung, since if it gets burn in, at least I didn't pay for it.
But if I had to pay for it, I would get the HTC, if it's heavily discounted (like about 300 bucks). You get decent performance in the best designed smartphone body and the best front facing speakers. And soon, it gets Marshmellow. But the camera is kinda meh, still usable if you shoot manual.
The LG is just ugly with those convex top and bottom sides. Plain retarded design.
The iPhone is probably the phone with the least flaws, but also the most limited in terms of customisability, if you're into that. So, you get a nice toy which can only be used as Apple wants you to use it. And personally I don't like that rounded-edges body with pillow-shaped icons. Looks retarded. It does have one of the best cameras. So, if you want that and don't want iPhone, go for the Samsung.
Careful with that back glass, though, I heard it can crack quite easily.
That glass, the amoled screen (burn in) and the mediocre battery life and lack of microSD are the reasons why I made a compromise and got the HTC M8. I may not have a great camera, but at least I have microSD card tray, great stereo speakers and all-metal body with an original design, not some chink knock-off of iphone. But that's just preference I guess. I also liked the gunmetal grey and hated the colourful models, so again preference. You might get bored of owning a dark grey phone in time.
One more thing: both the HTC and the Samsung are superslippery. The HTC all-metal body feels really premium and smooth in hand, but realistically you won't keep it outside a case when you go outside, or else you might drop it. Same for the Samsung. So, you get a phone which looks and feels premium but you might only enjoy that feel only when you're using it in an environment where you won't drop it (like office or home).
It's between the Samsung and the HTC. I'd say the Samsung has less issues than HTC. But it lacks the mSD card tray. So, maybe you should just go to a store where they have these models and play around with them and see which one you like.
If you decide on the HTC, make sure you test the camera or speakers, make sure you don't get a defective unit, because their quality testing doesn't seem to be very good (they had many returns, if I'm not mistaken).
Overall, Samsung is a safer choice, but consider the HTC too if you absolutely need the greatest front-facing speakers, the mSD card and you like their metal design. Otherwise, if you can live without the mSD and ordinary speakers, but you want a good screen and camera, the Samsung might be a better choice.
The choice is yours, nobody can decide for you, then you get mad if you don't like it.
The flagships from Samsung and HTC are just as expensive as the iPhones. I think the Note 5 is more expensive (?), not sure.
It's just that iPhones got more hyped in the media and culture, but they're mass-produced goods just like any other. And they actually give you less limited options if you want to customise them.
The new Samsung flagships probably look better than iPhones, but you'll have to deal with the risk of having a glass back.
So, yeah, now you see why people buy iPhones... because they don't want to bother with customisation or handling these risks or potential flaws. They want a phone that just werks and since they're tech-illiterate, the lack of customisation options doesn't bother them.
I've never tried rooting an android phone, do u have any experience with it, and if u do what are some of the cooler things to do with a rooted android phone, does it give u something like cydia after u root it?
Not him and I don't own a G4, but I've read that rooting the G4 is easy as fuck. Even Verizon gets the love. T-Mobile also gets twrp, so you can install a different rom if you wish.
>Meizu pro 5
Best thing about it is to root it all you do is open a Flyme account so the Chinese can steal all your details, and flip a toggle.
Ta-da, phone is now rooted.
Don't get the s6. The camera and build quality is good but the software is bloated and the battery is terrible. Besides, I currently own the previous flagship, the S5. If you care about android updates be prepared to flash shitty cyanogenmods because they've abandoned the S5 on 5.0 after 1 year.
I like HTC's build quality, software and speakers (had the m7 and m8), but the camera and battery in the new one are pretty mediocre.
Haven't had an LG but their software is like an even uglier touchwhiz clone and just as bloated. good features and hardware though.
iPhone is probably the best camera/speed wise, battery is pretty bad and the OS is really locked down.
I would wait another month or two, snapdragon 820 based phones are due out by then.
Depending on what HTC brings out, i'll get either that or the Xperia Z6 if that's out soon.
>If I got an iPhone I would be rooting it
>i use a massive gaping privilege escalation security hole to get basic android features and then prevent apple from patching it so i can keep those features, while exposing all of my private data to russian hackers
not saying that this board isnt full of neckbeards more transparent than clear water but welcome to 4chan m8, get used to it or get out.
also I'd get the LG G4. great screen, great camera, better battery life than the competition, UI is nearly stock, snapdragon 808 >810. the s6 looks like shit in real life imo and battery life is bad too, worse than that is the glass back being prone to break. though that AMOLED screen is beautiful and the camera is good and the SOC is very based.
the htc one m9 is the best in speakers and design but it pales in comparison to the others.
other than the iPhone of course which should be your last choice.
I can't really say much about the other three, but don't get the G4, if it's anything like the G3 at all (it is) the battery life will be awful unless you turn the brightness down really low. I don't know if it suffers from the lagginess the G3 does either, but after owning a G3 for about a year I'm never buying an LG phone again until they sort this shit out
Terrible information on here...
The worst thing about the Samsungs is the screen. Worst amoled they've put out in years. white balance is shit, terrible viewing angles (on an amoled, how the fuck did they fucking fuck that up, and ghosting.
The G3 was awful for sure, the G4 battery life isn't as good as it should be, but since samsung shrunk their battery it's still better.
