Why are Chinese phones better AND cheaper than the main brands like apple and Samsung.
MediaTek is a lower end proc, they don't do a good job with modifying software to ensure efficiency with the hardware, they don't offer support especially for updates like >>52555842
said... uhhh... otherwise yeah, I think that for the price they tend to be pretty alright.
Since they basically steal all their technology, there are no R&D costs that have to be passed on to consumers. There's also the fact that their government has absolutely no environmental laws or worker protection laws, so they get to take advantage of near-slave labor and being able to dump their toxic waste into the nearest convenient well.
TL/DR: Fuck off, you China shill bastard.
>good luck ever getting root/bootloader unlock
>good luck ever getting any updates
>good luck ever getting the radio to work with U.S or European towers
Except none of those are issues.
iToddlers are genuinely brain dead.
No you stupid bitch, the Chinese sure as shit charge foreign companies impact fees and most domestic companies at least make the pretext of sourcing factories that don't exploit workers.
We use them because it's still cheaper than opening factories here, but the Chinese government definitely gives the home field advantage to their own local companies.
Apple is the primary perpetrator of all of those, kill yourself.
>uses deceptive business contracts to force price wars between suppliers
>force competing manufactueres to use slave tier labor just to break even
>then goes and uses slave labor conditions that they created themselves while sucking up all the profits
Are you kids still on school holidays? Seriously,get back into a classroom asap.
Just because you're a technology illiterate retard that screams in terror when you see a CLI doesn't mean everyone is.
Root/bootloader is widely supported on any phone with a large brand behind it, OnePlus, Meizu, XiaoMi, etc.
All versions of Android get every security updates as long as Google Play is updated.
International versions exist for nearly every flasgship and even non flasgship models.
TL;DR, you're a fucking retard. Stay the hell off /g/, you don't belong here iToddler.
>>needing all this horsepower to compete with android because iOS is such a poorly optimized shitheap of sjwift cancer
>calling someone else tech illiterate
>reposting the same cherrypicked webm every day hoping some idiot will take you seriously
>calling others tech illiterate
next you're going to tell me you still have flash installed
>He thinks a CLI is not an actual GUI albeit an older version of it
>He thinks technology must stagnate and everyone must use old ways of doing things just to justify his imaginary sense of superiority
Kek. I can use both and don't make a fuss about it. I'm equally fine if I have to pick only one. There's no reason to brag about using a CLI, which is a dumbified interface anyway, just like a GUI.
>calling anyone else a tech illiterate autist
I have MT6752, it's blazing fast for the price
Plus it has a built in Mali-T760, so it supports native hardware h265 1080p decoding
Can your iToy run a Debian chroot iFag?
how many years until you become a productive member of society and stop playing with meme operating systems on toys?
seriously when will you autistic linux babbies grow the fuck up? look at bsd users as inspiration, they're at least some what tech literate.
Lg g3, 2gb/16gb variant.
Unfair to compare Chinese phones to iPhones but as far as other Android phones are concerned, the major brands are only as expensive as they are because of brand names.
iPhones do have a ridiculous markup for what they actually cost to produce, but they are at least quality phones with high quality, optimised software and good support. iPhones are expensive but they do generally last a lot longer than your average Android phone.
I already am a productive member of the society, I am the sysadmin at a local company and I do my job well.
If GNU/Linux is a meme then why does it run on more devices than windows and OSX combined if we account for the embedded devices?
meme because only fuckwits use it on a desktop, espcially while a broken mess like X is still the main window manager.
there's a reason why the original unix devs use os x as their main drivers and bsd for servers.
My girlfriend's uncle uses an iPhone 4 running the latest iOS 7 and it still works fine. Battery lasts him all day, 3rd party apps still get updates and the OS is still responsive.
My friend uses an iPhone 4S, same story again except he still gets the latest OS updates which is pretty impressive for how old that phone is by now.
I myself use an iPhone 5 and it works absolutely fine, I'm more than happy with it as a daily driver.
Chinese phones,you mean iphones.All fucking smart phones are made in CHINA.
>build quality hurf durf
>All NSA approved monitoring equipment
>muh "nothing to hide" retort

Android/Crapple w/e ...its all shit rolled into a nice consumer package that causes brain cancer amongst other things.
Other symptoms of smart phone usage may include insane ramblings about quality of certain brands of plastic shit.May also cause the consumer to over inflate hes ego whilst using these lumps of plastic shit in a public area.
The stupidity causing smart phone phenomena.
yes i could have predicted that kind reaction from you.
Reality is far to much for your consumerist brainwashed mind.
There's a difference between telling someone the reality of a situation and making an insane autistic rambling like >>52556750
Yes, by which I mean the latest version of iOS 7, not that I'm implying iOS 7 is the latest version of iOS.
Why must you people feel the need to lie?
i see that amongst all your anger you still use the trendy word "autist" to validate your insane comprehension of reality.
This. My old Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 was supposed to get the official KitKat upgrade but in the end, Samsung just gave up on it and only rolled it out to a few carrier branded American models of the device.
They did roll it out to the GT-I9305 but it was still down to the carriers whether or not they wanted to roll it out to their customers, some of which never did.
What really annoyed me as well was that community support for the device completely dropped after KitKat for some reason, I think Samsung bribed ROM devs into not supporting the phone because I can't think of a single reason why one of the most popular phones ever made never got the Lollipop upgrade from any noteworthy ROM devs, the device was perfectly capable of running Lollipop.
Let me guess, this was to do with an early iteration of iOS 9 before Apple ironed out any bugs? My friend is on iOS 9.2.1 and he hasn't complained about the phone's performance at all.
Why would I be angry? Is this some tame attempt at trolling?
More to the point,why are you so angry? Has mass advertising and your need for consuming useless products overtaken any rational thinking within your young mind? it would seem so.
When a new version of android comes out the chipset manufacturers have to make it possible for it to work on it. After they get the chipset working they maybe have to fix the binary blobs also to get sound or graphics working on the newer kernel.
Android hardware abstraction layer is shit.
>That's only because of how notoriously sluggish and bloated OEM branded firmware can be.
While that is true, why is it the case that Indian kids on XDA can release somewhat functional experimental ROMs but major ROM devs like CM, AOKP and Slim can't release fully functional ROMs?
>Apple are the only people who do this
>Apple were even the first people to do this
You're only harping on about Apple because it's a convenient bogeyman for you.
You'll conveniently ignore that main perpetrators of such Asian companies, especially Samsung who are essentially slave labor in a 'western influenced' nation.
You'll also ignore that both Apple and Google are actively trying to bring manufacturing jobs back to the US where there is higher oversight.
Keep being jaded about everything that isn't a race-to-the-bottom slave labor product though.
>trying to bring manufacturing jobs back to the US
>Anything I disagree with or am ignorant about is bait
They already manufacture the Mac Pro, Mac Mini and iMac in the USA, ya dingus
I wish my note 3 wasn't broken so I could compare.
I have Meizu MX4 with MT6595 and it just great, plays 10bit animu, hardvare hevc encoder/decoder, nice and pretty, 32gb is fine for me, but i would like to have SD slot, screen is good, led somewhat uneven.
And cost 1/3 of fucking Apple gayphone TM.
The machine is placing capacitors on the PCB in the video, which is about as low level assembly of PCB as its possible to get
You're being deliberately obtuse. The idea that they only print the PCB in China and then do literally everything else including placing diodes, capacitors, etc on the board in the USA is ridiculous and unsupported by any evidence.
No, they make all those capacitors, diodes, resisters and other chips in China as well.
Otherwise they would have said "manufactured in USA" instead of just "assembled in USA".
The cases are also manufactured in China, absolutely no proof in the video that they aren't and you can catch Asians around them during that phase of the video but they specifically don't show them clearly.
About 20,000 people paid $5 for a crowdfunding to receive a $50 credit towards ordering their new phone the P9000, and nobody's coupon codes are working.
Originally the crowdfunding codes were to be valid from January 15-31, the presale never went live and they kept everyone in the dark until earlier this week when an email was sent out saying it would start Thursday 1/21 at 3PM GMT.
The pre-sale went live, sort of. They have a form on their homepage where you must validate the code that was purchased, then use a new generated code that is only valid for ONE online retailer to preorder the phone. And judging by the customer responses so far none of the retailers are accepting any codes, some list the phone as out of stock and don't allow pre-orders. Some don't use PayPal or even ship all over the world.
This company is literally defrauding tens of thousands of people because they promised a phone that's great and inexpensive. Their facebook and twitter is full of pissed off customers.
probably because they dont need to fork out for overpaid laowai executives to do nothing. keep everything in house
>There's also the fact that their government has absolutely no environmental laws or worker protection laws, so they get to take advantage of near-slave labor
Where the fuck do you think Apple or HTC or MS make their phones?
In the same slave labor camps in India, China, Taiwan you fucking idiot
>samefagging this hard to save face
None of what you said rebukes that fact that you can use these phones for US carriers . the supported frequencies are not at all aligned with those used by the big 4 in US and you will always be missing late bands.
>implying you'll get bootloader unlock and updates on your jiayu goophones
>huur ifags so dummy amirite?
Strawman harder or you'll never get me to use your phones PLA
sent from my lg g pro :^)
