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

>>52382815
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?

Still haven't gotten it yet.

People say it overheats when under long time stress (Movies/Games for hours)

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.

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€) ?
>>
>>52387367
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

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.

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.
>>
>>52400676
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 -

>>52386031
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.

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.

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
>>
>>52392429
z5 premium
>>
>>52411123
The Turbo 2 looks good on paper, but the fact it's a carrier-specific phone is real shit. It'll probably turn out the same way the Galaxy S6 Active did
>>
>>52411243
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.

>>
>>52391169
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.

Huawei phones only have exclusive EMUI roms available, no custom roms. Are Xiaomi phones the same?

Don't buy a Windows based phone, made that grave mistake. Unless you want no apps.

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?
>>
>>52412508
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 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.

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).

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.

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

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.

Thanks!
I don't mind the screen being limited to 720p, if that gives me more options.

iPhone 5S or iPhone 6?

On T Mobile. 6 costs slightly more per month. Are the differences worth the extra money?

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.

idk m8, it replaces a lot of things and utilities. GPS, music/video player, lets you browse the internet at anytime, etc..

just discovered the Blu Life One X, and wow, i seems too good for that price, where's the trick?

i was going to buy a Moto G gen 3 2 GB ram, but this seems way better, what should i do?
>>
>>52425693

it's literally better in every way, the CPU even blows the Moto G's out in benchmarks

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.

>>52382642
One M8, Zenfone 2 are probably the best you'll get in that price range

I'm somewhat biased because I have an M8 but I like the thing

>>52424775
m4 aqua will get marshmallow. not sure p8 lite will.
>>
>>52425862
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?
>>
>>52426669
nvm just found out it's 720p, has 615, and 5,5"
>>
>>52426623
no senpai

I've had the note1,2,3 and 4. Note5 doesn't have the sd card and they're trying to change their business model to apple. So I've switch to Z5 premium
>>

>>52426735
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?
>>
>>52427234
It has the best specs but I won't sacrifice mSD and/or removable battery for an extra .20gHz or something on a phone.
>>
Are there any reviews of the Redmi 3 yet? It should've came out yesterday iirc.
>>
>>52420943
I like it but make sure you make a backup because there's a common bug where the GPS breaks on cm and you'll have to flash back to stock to fix it.
>>
Moto G 3rd gen 16GB at 220€ or Oneplus X at 259€?

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.

>>52417191
I guess I'll have to try the keyboard myself to see if I'll buy it or just go full touch. Thanks mate

Hey listfag, what's the best cheap <5.5" phone with microsd slot? Any response is appreciated. Shattered my first-gen moto g and I'm due for an upgrade anyway.
>>
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
>includes microSD
>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:
>GSM Bands
>UMTS Bands
>CDMA bands
>OS Version
pro-tip, theyre all android
>country of origin

if anyone wants the full list of specs, just download the whole spreadsheet.
>>52420332

>>52428983
definitely not the desire.

youre basically deciding between

Nexus 5X
>+Android M and update support
>+Better resolution 1080p screen
>more powerful SoC and processor
>-no removable battery
>-higher price point
>-no mSD

Moto G
>+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
