With the specs of the galaxt tab s 8.4 , it should be nexus 7 level smooth, but it is not..I disabled the bloat and now using nova launcher, but when I open any app , it lags for a noticeable moment.. And I think I know why , it is the screen resolution, it is 1600*2560.. I don't need such high level since I don't watch videos or do gaming.. Will lowering it improve performance or increase battery life ?
If so , how do I know what resolution is safe ( won't cause a bootloop ), since I once tried lowering the dpi and it stuck in a loop( read it can happen with resolution too ) .
PLZ HLP, I AM A NOOB
Also forgot to add that MicroSD support is a must.
In the US with Verizon, so they would probably find a way to buttfuck me with that phone. Anything on the lower end of the spectrum in terms of price, though?
I don't have one. I just checked it out a while back before I bought my Samsung.
Are they good value now?
Poor euro-fag here , is there any decent phone i would be able to buy under 120 euros? Battery durability and performance would be good , but i would buy anything as long as it isnt a complete crap.
Ultra-poorfag here, what's a decent phone (sub $200) to use with a MVNO like Ringplus or FreedomPop?
Saw the Moto E for about $40, could spend a bit more for a first gen Moto G but I know fuckall about smartphones
It just gets annoying, the smaller the better. This L O N D O N phone just caught my eye.
>is really overpriced
Trust me, I noticed. Z3 compact seems ok, shame it's not well available.
Still haven't gotten it yet.
People say it overheats when under long time stress (Movies/Games for hours)
The snap dragon 810 aparently has BAD throttling problems.
But other then that, All my phone buddys told me to get it! at least for the price. (239)
Because Qualcomm didn't have 64-bit custom cores to release in time after Apple released the A8. So they had to use an off-the-shelf solution which proved to be absolute crap and ruined many flagships in the past year.
Looking for a new phone, running android.
I want something smaller than the galaxy s5.
I don't use my phone for anything non-phone/SMS related besides some basic IM and internet browsing.
Flip phones running android are fine, too.
Imports from Japan and stuff are also fine.
You might be able to help: I'll be traveling a lot between NZ and France this year, and my first-gen Galaxy Note is beginning to show its limits. I want to replace it with a dual sim LTE phone, so I was looking at the Redmi Note 2
Do I have to look for something concerning networks ? I remember older phones being somewhat region-locked due to variations of networks standards across the globe, but is it still the case ? Could this phone work in LTE in NZ ?
Also, are there better alternatives in this price range (~150€) ? Should I get a Note 3 instead (~220€) ?
I guess that's your best option if you want a good device in that pricerange. No idea how much spyware is on those things tho (in the os itself and the firmware). They are too cheap to be true IMO. Especially looking at the upcoming redmi 3
I'm trading in my note 4 and getting a note 5. Is this a good idea?
What are the best phones to buy atm?
I know it's a bad moment to buy one but i've been using my flip phone for over a year and i want something to browse and listen to music when i'm out. Any price even though i'd prefer under 350€.
OnePlus X seems nice but it's 295€ with shipping and i don't know if it's worth it, i heard it lags a bit.
>bought xperia z5c last year
>im using it as same way my last phone, galaxy nexus
>feel the battery meme is a myth
>decide to fool around power management and get full charge
>play heavy games(coc,real racing, etc..) for 6hrs straight with LTE on and bluetooth headset on
>battery is in 30% and it tells me to use stamina mode
>it lasted for 6hrs more
>15% now it tells me to activate low battery mode and activate it
>i notice LTE is disabled play offline games
>after 3hrs it got to 5% and i see one more option ultra stamina mode
>phone disables everything in android except for basic phone features
>just play music for 10 more hours
Is the HTC One M8 worth getting as a first smartphone?
I want something faster than an htc one m7 with a huge noticeable gain in everyday use. What would you guys go for?
Sony Xperia Z5 Compact
Sony Xperia Z5
Trying out a Kyocera Wave Hydro since it was free and I hate my temporary iPhone 4S.
-Feels a little light but I've been using a 4S for the past month and a half or so.
-animations feel slightly sluggish but I haven't turned off that crap yet
Will report in later. So far it's playing my chinese cartoon game without any issues at least, thankfully.
have a question if any anons can help, I copied someone's email onto the clipboard on my phone and forgot to save it and copied something else how can I access the history, I'm using an android phone. I've tried Google but it only helps for situations after installing the apps
I'm looking at buying one of these. Is it worth it for $250?
Surprisingly not shitty. Just need to root to remove some bloatware.
-Play store crashes a fair bit but that's it.
-minimal bloat (just t-mobile account stuff)
Where the hell is the menu button on Lolipop? I always use a custom soft key and haven't used 5.0+ before.
just bought pic related
I hate how the power button dosen't let me silence my phone
Is there an easy way around this or do I have to go into settings every time?
Definitely. I had mine for 3 months now and my only issues are it's placement of the power button, the lack of capacitive buttons (personal peev) and the fact that I know I will be using it for years and it does not have a replaceable battery. Oh and HTC dev are lazy cunts and marshmallow update has not come to EU yet.
Might get a z5, just wondering what the software is like.
Are they good with updates? Is it considerably heavier than stock android? Currently use an S5 and i'm super done with heavy OEM skins.
(before you say 6P, I live in europe so it's really expensive here).
>5X or 6P?
>Does not feel high quality because plastic case
>Camera is really good
>fast, but not as fast as 6P
>insane battery life and performance
>Camera is truly good. Best cam I have seen in a smartphone
>you get used to the size quickly
>absolute powerhouse when it comes to games
>6p can become a flex phone if you bend it
>chinese build quality
>shitty amoled panel
OPX buyer here, got it about a week ago. It's so slippery (like, frictionless) it slid and fell off a flat table four times in the first day without me touching it. By day 4 the glass back had a crack in it from a half foot drop into tiling, again from sliding away on its own. It's a nice phone with CM12.1 (save an airplane mode issue that breaks gps), very much worth it for the price, but get a damn cover or skin for it.
z3 compact user here. same as the z3 except screen size and ram.
they've mostly left android itself alone, except for a sony launcher and keyboard - which you do not have to use.
there are a few junk apps, which can be disabled. there are some good ones like stamina mode, smart connect and track id.
they have a marshmallow beta program - limited to 10,000 people, but it seems you can install it anyway with no voiding warranty -
what should i get for €400. I'd like ideally to be able to go in to a shop and get it tomorrow as i need it for a job. But if alternatives like the OP2 are good enough to justify the time/effort in getting an invite I might be willing to wait longer.
Anyone use Google Fi? Thoughts? I'm usually on WiFi at home and at work. Thinking of switching from Verizon since Fi is cheaper and lets my finance a 6P
My dad needs a phone but he's really cheap. Won't go over $200. Needs bands 2 and 4. Any good options? No bootleg chinkphones.
Bought it myself about 2 months ago (payed 270). After the latest updates the heating issues aren't much of a problem anymore. It gets warm but I haven't really noticed any throttling.
Main issue with it is the screen, it's got some really ugly yellow stains on it mostly visible on grey backgrounds. Also the "healing" backcover doesn't really work all that well and the camera is really subpar compared to most 2015 flagships. If you can live with those caveats though it's a ridiculous bargain.
anyphone to /hype/ for? contract up in march and will get a new phone then. at&t here
hearing rumors for LG G5, and I have to say I hope it comes out around then. I have my G2 and I love it to death - even with a dead spot on the screen.
I installed a custom boot/recovery and OS on my S5; effectively rooting it and breaking KNOX. I requested my network unlock code from tmobile. Samsung also says my IMEI is listed as unlocked. Getting network unlock unsuccessful still. Any ideas?
Note that I was using a German cell network provider's (vodafone) SIM to initiate the network unlock, but I don't think that would matter.
Contract ended last month and i'm deciding on what I should upgrade to. I'm looking at the LG V10 which just dropped, but i'm not too sure on it as it's fairly recent. Whatcha think?
Just got home, it's been averaging 12 hours from 100%.
Worth replacing the battery or is this the best it's going to get? Samsung S4
just ordered pic related for $100 how did i do ? (16 gig)
>be on Verizon for work related reasons
>want an LG G4
>some website is selling it on a deal for $350
>its the unlocked US cellular version but has all the right bands and frequencies for Verizon
>go into a Verizon store and ask an employee if they allow this model onto their network
>"lel I dunno man I just work here"
>get on an online chat with a customer service rep
>after carefully explaining that the particular model has everything needed to get Verizon's network the rep basically says "sorry only iPhones are capable of switching networks, Android cannot do that"
>"our network is special and requires very particular phones to be capable of connecting to it :^)"
>switching to T-mobile is literally not a choice
I want to upgrade from my Nexus 5 but I'm not sure about the latest phones.
I'll mainly use it to browse websites, game and listen to music.
I love my Nexus because of how "Pure" it is however I've had it for awhile now and could do with an upgrade.
That's absolute shit. Verizon carries the G4 so there should be no excuse. You should try to go back to the store and find a competent manager to help you. If they allow shit like the Zenfone and Oneplus phones to use their services, they should definitely allow phones they carry to use them.
did you get nexus protect? otherwise prepare to get raped because that build quality is 0/10 and no one will fix it when it inevitably breaks for no reason. i dropped it one fucking time. from less than 2 feet. and the screen fucking broke
Serious question, how do you people justify buying a phone over $200 that doesnt have a removable battery? You're buying an expensive as fuck phone with planned obsolescence in place
top half of the digitizer on my z3 compact broke, what do /g/? I'm contemplating just buying a replacement z3c but I've been out of the loop on newer phones for a while so that's probably a bad idea. Any suggetions? I liked the smaller size of it, and the battery life was really nice.
my phone is the one that broke
it's snappy as hell, fun phone. screen is above average but not quite samsung quality.
again it broke after falling ONE FUCKING TIME from like 18 inches WITH A FUCKING CASE
Hey anons. I'm conflicted. I'm switching networks soon, and I'll have to give back my Nexus 6. I loved the phone. It was such a solid phone. It never failed me. The battery life was really the only gripe I could possibly have with it. I'm switching over to Verizon because AT&T has just become a piece of shit over the years.
I'm conflicted now. Do I just get the Nexus 6 again with Verizon? I've been thinking about the Droid Turbo 2. I've heard great things about it and I like that you can customize it. I heard that it has a better battery life which is a huge selling point for me.
I don't care much that it might not be running the latest version of android. That never bothered me. It has Lollipop has everything that I need.
So, which phone, anons?
>inb4 they're both a shit
I agree, I really dislike it when they make a phone carrier exclusive, I feel like it should be available on all carriers but hey, let's all just try to follow the iPhone business model from 2007 to 2011 and try to be just as successful.
Regardless, that isn't a worry of mine since I plan on staying with Verizon. It's a shitty business practice but I just want a good phone with a good battery life.
I don't really play games on the phones either, nothing besides some light puzzle games. Nothing too graphic intensive. I usually just listen to music, call, text, and video chat via Skype.
It just seems like all I need, but the problem is the Nexus 6 is bigger, which I'm a fan of, and it has stereo speakers. So I don't quite know how to feel about it all.
Yeah, if you can still find a new one somewhere, though you have to be careful since any unsold stock might include refused returns.
I found one at about 300 bucks, it's my first modern smartphone and it's a great phone, a classic that will most likely look cool for years to come.
Make sure you get the 32gb model because not all apps can be moved on the msd card.
The phone does have a flaw, the camera is not much to talk about. Everything else is awesome, if you got a fully functional unit.
Don't expect a big phone, it's a classic medium-sized slate. The build quality is unparalleled, though.
Can anyone answer me this. Why the hell doesn't the Moto X Pure Edition have any ROM support, I mean it doesn't even have Cyanogenmod support...
What gives. The only ROMs that are on XDA are poo in loo trash.
Anyone here have experience getting phones off ebay? Did you have a positive experience?
OP2 no longer uses invite system
Currently looking to upgrade my nexus 5 and honestly considering opx, the battery life on the nexus 5 is just so bad its not worth considering imho desu senpai
Nexus 6 owners - is it too big? I have pretty long fingers, current nexus 5 feels too small and the 6 felt fine in the store, but does it get annoying to use? Does it fit fine in your pocket?
Yeah check the seller thoroughly. Check feedback, check if their location matches the location of the item, read carefully the item description, you know, basic stuff.
Personally I avoided buying from Asia, since I've heard some very different stories on how reliable sellers are. I prefer buying from sellers who have online ebay stores with a big supply. It's those sellers who have tens of thousands of sold items. The closer to 100% positive feedback they are, the better.
I have an s3 and it's perfect, but i want something with a snapdragon. Must be as similar to s3(the european gt-i9300) as posdible. Should i get an s4? an S5? I'd like good cyanogenmod support
T-mobile literally doesn't allow outsider 4G phones onto their service because of some 911 connect bullshit.
T-mobile and Verizon are the worst ones to try and get your phone activated even if it's fully unlocked.
I need a new smartphone. Never used android, really want to, I don't mind spending whatever an iPhone goes for these days. Should I wait for the galaxy S7? I honestly have no clue. Starting a CS major next year if that means anything.
I bought an op2 the other week in black Friday sales and after 2 weeks the USB C connector has gotten incredibly loose. I've contacted support but you all know how that goes. They've offered to arms a replacement after asking for a picture of my cable but they didn't specify if they were sending a cable or a handset. I doubt they'd send a handset. This exchange was before new years and I've not heard back since asking what they planned to send me.
Should I find a phone repair shop in my city or just keep waiting? Charging had become a difficult task because slightly moving the phone unplugs it.
Should I wait for the next samsung S7 or get the google nexus 6p and save up around 1000 AUD (about 700 USD)
or get the latest xiaomi ( about 300 USD?) from aliexpress or China when I go to Shanghai for work later this month?
Why are phones so expensive now? do they justify the price? I use my phone a fuckload though for replying to emails/ messenger and pdf reading/annotating on the go
I'd go with the G4. Removable storage, free 200 gig sd card for limited time offer, probably will have good aftermarket rom support and probably a good repairablilty rating. I have the G3 rooted on CM 12.1 and I absolutely love it.
There are some caveats like no ir blaster support and snapchat causes random reboots sometimes but I can live with those.
z3 compact. and for god sake, get the incipio dualpro case. the z3c rear is glass, and the case has two separate layers, so it offers excellent protectoon. the omly issue is that is blocks the magnetic charging port. the flap covering the micro usb port will come off at some point apparently. and get a tempered glass screen protector too (all smartphone users should have one).
Is there such thing as a nicer UI than Windows Phones?
Efficient. Productive. Sufficiently customizable. No-rice bullshit. It's almost enough to switch if it only had fucking app support.
Looking for a phone around or under the $150 (AUD) mark. Had an LG Optimus L70 I bought for $70 which worked great but the SD card reader is broken. Just looking for something which is sturdy, doesn't look like shit and can handle basic apps without lagging.
So I had to take the cover off the back of my HTC One M7 to fix the power button, I got that done but when I popped the cover back on, the first half inch or so at the bottom of the screen doesn't respond, nor does the back button, but the home button is fine.
What have I done?
As a physical keyboard faggot I'm looking for a recent phone with 2+ go of ram and so far my only choice seems to be the blackberry priv.
I've been looking for reviews but everywhere it's just normies complaining about the low res of the selfie camera.
So has anyone ever tried the priv and can tell me if it's worth the money, or can indicate a site with valuable reviews ?
Gimmick for the majority of people
It's pretty bad from what I tried, the keyboard is really mushy and unsatisfying
If you NEED a physical keyboard I'd get it considering there really isn't any other choice
I read about a few minutes ago. It is an excellent option that is worth racking your brain to decide which to choose. Still no sd slot :( but anyway it's a good choise, I will wait for the reviews
My first phone was the nokia 521 then about three months later I bought the 1020, when that cracked I bought another. The screen cracked after a bike ride and bricked the whole phone. I'm on the first one and it has failing battery life now after two years as well as the cracked screen hurting my ears when I answer calls.
Naturally I just upgraded to the newest windows phone the 950. however that one had heat issues and was returned, but with all the issues with windows 10 now I don't think I can rely on getting another.
I'm completely overwhelmed with all the choices I have now.
Can someone be of help?
Is glance a windows phone only thing? I'd prefer an amoled screen and I've love an equal camera as I travel overseas and record/take pictures and the 1020 has definitely been useful as has onedrive.. If I were to get an android I would just run the windows launcher I've seen before.
How does that launcher even relate to battery life? Do things like that use a lot of battery?
I do have some things I've been looking at, the lumia 930, nexus 6p. I know I don't like galaxies nor iphones. Something with 4k video would be nice
Will the Xiomi mi's run on t-mobile? I don't mind if it's not LTE as I'm pretty satisfied with the Hspa+ I get from my current Belgium 1020. No need to stay within carriers I buy my phones unlocked.
I just really don't know where to start as now I have a whole spectrum of phones, where before I preferred to stay within Nokia.
What's the catch with this phone?
>nice 5" display
>2 gb ram
How it compares with the new Moto G?
is 399€ (~434$) a good price for the samsung galaxy s6 32gb?
I think one or two Motorola phones in the past had something like glance, but nowadays your best bet would be something like the lgv10. There's an always-on strip above the screen displaying notifications. It has a nice camera too.
You can try a second 950? Amoled+glance+nice camera+live tiles you can't find all these together in any other device
i need to buy my 1st smartphone, i need help choose
i cant choose between the Motorola Moto G 3rd gen 2GB Ram 16 GB and the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua 8GB
they are at the same price, so which one should i buy?
I was looking at getting a Z5 but there is a deal on right now for a Z5 Premium for $850 AUD. Should I get it? I feel like its kinda too big, I think the Z5 is the biggest I want to go but the price is pretty good I think.
So /g I was thinking to get a Redmi 3 but I saw the Blu Life One X which is almost the same price but the Blu has 4g support while the Redmi doesnt, im only worried about the camera and future updates after Marshallow (root is available on the other hand)
What do you think?
it has touchwiz and updates are much slower than the moto g. the the a5 isn't even on 5.1.1. it's on 5.0.2 and i doubt it will get marshmallow. 16gb 3rd gen moto g has 2gb of ram too. i'd get that.
Nexus 5 is dying. it'll be months before 6p comes to store and it will be overpriced.
Thinking between s6 and z5. S6 is same price as 5x atm.
Trying to find any reason why to buy the z5 over samsung.
i have a moto g 2015
its pretty neat overall
but i have the 8gb model, i guess thats my fault but even when i move all apps on my 32gb sd card the OS and some left over data from the apps that i moved my internal storage is like 90% filled
and it keeps telling me that i dont have enough space left
buy an extended battery from amazon and slap CM 12.1 on it. That's what I did and my phone lasted me around 3 days.
6P owner here, dropped my phone numerous times with a slim case on it. Still works perfectly.
Phone is great coming from an S4. If you're that worried about durability, get the 100 google warranty.

The only good option seems like it's the OnePlus One. My brother owns it and it's good but sadly it's out of stock that's why i was thinking the X. Otherwise the LG G Flex but i hate it is curvy af.
I don't really know, i guess i'll either wait some more months or decide something on this list, thanks
>mfw google knows that I need to buy milk, bread, and beer.
I have this phone. Camera is good, battery is good, screen resolution isn't great, it's mainly lag free, got SD slot, perfect size, but yea, 5.0.1 and only 2GB of RAM.
Meh, I paid £140 for it second hand and I like it.
I have pic related lg optimus l7 p705 and its sluggish as fuck and battery barely lasts my day. Sometimes it even freezes when I swipe to answer a call and can't answer the call before the caller gives up.
>Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 MSM7227A 1GHz
How do I make it run smoother and make its battery last longer? Debloat? there is no CM version avaliable for it. Any idea what to do? I want to keep it till x86 phones come out but it is being very unpractical.
If I cant find a way to make it work I am thinking of getting this pic related. Is that a bad idea? Any comperable phones that are also cheap as fuck?
What's the best phone I can get used online (namely on eBay) for 100 dollars or less? I've been eyeing the Nexus 5 for quite some time, but I wanna know if there are any other good options.
Created my own thread not realizing this was here.
>I have Verizon and my phone is due for an upgrade.
>Root access, custom roms, and xposed are a must. What are my best options for someone coming from an S4 with a locked bootloader?
inb4 Verizon is shit. I know but I signed my contract with blood.
Looking for something that has:
Android as the OS
At least 1.5gb of ram
Dual core cpu or higher
A smaller sized screen
Decent rear camera. (Couldn't give two shits about a front facing one)
Decent screen & resolution (That isn't going to kill my battery)
Still supported by the manufacturer
Aftermarket modding community.
Note 3 (even the T-Mobile N900T version) only supports 2 and 4, not 12 according to my research.
The phones pictured all support Band 12
Using my current phone is a hassle too, If there is no way to make it better then I need a phone that is cheap, has a decent battery and can run whatsapp. If you know an alternative that is as cheap do tell.
limited selection to:
>1536MB of RAM or more
>Minimum Dual Core CPU
>16MP Camera or better
>1080p resolution or higher
>Android OS only
the problem that I came across here is as soon as I limit the camera and screen resolution, the smallest screen size available was 5.0". Anything smaller than that either didn't have the same resolution screen or camera.
If you want any of these limiting factors modified, let me know.
Also, "Aftermarket community" is a little tricky to quantify. If you see a phone you like, I'd just check on XDA to see if there is support for it. Many phones are so I think you'll be fine.
>note: N/A just means I couldn't find that information when researching the phone.
okay, here are the results when including 720p screens and 13MP cameras.
could barely fit them in one screencap!
Smartphones are such a meme tech.
As I predicted some years ago, they're not gonna do much after the hype dispels. Basically everyone has a pocket toy PC they can play around with and get nothing really done.
>inb4 I ssh into my server remotely using this app
>GPS, music/video player, lets you browse the internet at anytime
Smartphones before the iphone had that, it was just a shittier version.
So what changed? How much more shit do you get done because you have a smartphone with the latest specs? Can you really write a proper document on it while travelling? You can, but it's not ideal, you have to carry a mobile keyboard, etc etc. So you have to use something else, like laptop or 2-in-1.
So what else are smartphones good for today except being phones, media players, googlemap clients and browsers?
What did they revolutionise, besides creating the "new web" meme shit?
Btw, I do have a smartphone, I'm not some disgruntled flipphone owner, I just realised I got bored of my phone. They are all boring and only useful as media consumption devices, mostly, and taking calls, if need be.
Sure, i agree with you, but maybe not everyone wants to carry a laptop around when you can buy something that fits your pocket and lets you chat with people at any moment. I'm also getting bored of mine but i wouldn't replace it with any dumbphone. I use it for like 3-4 hours a day maybe but when i come home i have my PC to do everything else. It's nice to have to pass time or to have info on the go. Also we had .3gp files back then and you can't really compare them with what we have now
HTC Desire 820.
>€290 new on amazon
Why isn't this ever recommended?
I'm coming from the note 2 and I don't need much storage space at all. The lack of removable battery is a bit worrisome since my note 2 had a period where the battery would drain real quick for no apparent reason.
Will I notice a big difference between these two?
Any recommendations for someone who just used his phone for music, internet, and GPS... but uses those things a lot?
For comparison, I'm using Amazon's fire phone and it's functionally just fine (till I fucked it)
I don't have a max pricepoint, but I imagine I wouldn't need the best and greatest.
Looking for a well-built phone at a low budget. Need it for nothing more than basic calls/texts, web browsing, email, listening to music.
Stuck between the Moto G 3rd Gen, Nexus 5x, or HTC desire 820. Any recommendations?
Not sure what your definition of "cheap" is, so I set the maximum at $349 so you could at least get a look at what is in the Good to Decent range.
I also limited the search by:
>minimum 2GB RAM
>maximum 5.5" screen
>minimum 16GB storage
and in case no one has noticed, in the interest of saving space for the screenshot I am hiding some of the less important columns.
in pic related I hid:
pro-tip, theyre all android
>country of origin
if anyone wants the full list of specs, just download the whole spreadsheet.
definitely not the desire.
youre basically deciding between
>+Android M and update support
>+Better resolution 1080p screen
>more powerful SoC and processor
>-no removable battery
>-higher price point
>+cheaper of the two
>+mSD up to 32GB
>+currently has more favorable reviews
>+Better build quality
motos commonly have splash resistance.
>-only 720p screen
>-less powerful SoC and CPU
Base Storage, RAM, and Camera are pretty much the same
