My oneplus one finally crapped out on me. The touchscreen stopped working on about a third of the screen, making it basically useless.
Anyways, I'm looking for a new phone I can find for under $400 with decent specs, removable battery, big screen, 1080p, SD card slot, and IP67/IP68. I'm looking at the Sony Xperia Z3 right now, but it doesn't have a removable battery. What are my other options?
I own the Z3 for a year now. The battery is fucking epic, I'm running the Marshmallow beta on my device and thanks to android doze it lasts 3 days with my usage easily. It's a whole new using experience when you don't have to care about your battery because there is always enough left. The only downside of this device is that it's actually pretty fragile so I would definitely recommend using a case or something like that.
>pic is battery life
This is the only place I can find to buy the Z2 for a decent price, but it seems sketchy. I'm on AT&T. Will this one come with a warranty?
I've had my 1+1 for almost two years now, I bought it in spring 2014 for $300.
I've dropped it like ten times, out of those I broke the screen twice and once I broke it when I was at gym. So I've changed my 1+1's screen three times in two years. It's easy and cheap, you can find screens for 1+1 as little as $30 including shipping, but I prefer buying those "oem" screens with a frame, so just screw your old phones shit to new one in 30minutes and voila, youre done.
It's a pretty good phone, after all. After 6p was a letdown, I'm kinda not in a hurry replacing this.
Z3c user here. Confirmed.
BTW, the battery isn't hard to replace at all if that's what you're concerned about. Look up the videos.
Can't wait for the Z6c
Moto X Play, or any of the Moto X/G series are brilliant phones. Stock Android so little to no bloatware, the X Play has two day battery life and they're really decent for their price too.
I'm not into the intricacies of Android so I don't know the specifics of how/where this works
