Fucking hell, when I had this phone a few years ago it was perfect, now it's literally unusable, to the point I can't even listen to shit on Poweramp and use Chrome at the same time because Poweramp gets killed after the phone starts killing all processes as it runs out of ram.
How often you see people still rocking their ancient but still perfectly working iPhones ? Meanwhile these fucking Android even if they're ex flagships become LITERALLY unusable after a while. Now my iPhone 6s is getting repaired and I'm stuck with this unusable piece of shit, and I swear it worked perfectly just a few years ago. Of course the only explanation for this is that Google has bloated their apps so much they completely fuck over older devices with less than 8Gb of ram.
This is why Android is a pleb OS. You see your sparkly new Galaxy S6, Oneplus2, Xperia Z5 and shit like that? All unusable in 3 years tops. My iPhone 6s will last for at least a fucking decade. And if you're wondering what the fuck I used between this Sony turd and the iPhone, I used the GAlaxy S4, another flagship which was starting to become unusable and randomly reboot, so I sold it to some loser whom is probably regretting it by now.
>b-b-but install a custom rom!
Fuck you. First of all, I shouldn't have to waste my time wading through the cesspool that is XDA to find a working rom for this ancient device amongst nvm I fixed it and broken megaupload links. Secondly, I don't fucking trust shitty hackjob roms made by bored indians with too much free time. When was the last time someone was forced to install a custom rom on his iPhone because it became literally unusable by design? Fucking never.

Yeah all good Droidz know Apple sucks
>When was the last time someone was forced to install a custom rom on his iPhone because it became literally unusable by design?
Never, because their only option when Apple bricks their device at the 2 year mark is to buy the new one.
but but muh android is so much better and I paid so much less!
so what if the usb port dies in a year and the batteries go to shit or the screen burns in and I get random crashing on my flagship android phone!
I stuck it to the apple sheep by not paying that extra money I'm so smart by letting google own me rather then being inconvenienced because I can't sideload apks that cost 99cents each!
my ipad 3 is running the latest version of ios. The only difference between it and my new phone is slight speed degradation and the newest features that only work on a 64bit cpu because it's using a fucking 4 year old processor.
I want to see some of you faggots post those phones that were originally on 2.2 with 6.0
Iphones are good man, buy an iphone. I love iPhones. Well I don't actually use them but i love fixing them.
People buy the cheapest Androids and then jump right into 700 dollar iPhones with a payment plan for 2-3 years. Only buy flagships, they are the proud proof of that manufacturer that they can make THIS good phones. Cheaper models are cheaper for a reason. They cut corners to get the price down.
Lol my gf has a 1 year old 5s and its out of memory woth no way to upgrade and the battery is already shitty, i laughed so hard because its only a year old meanwhile my moms s4 is way older and she just bought a memory card and a new battery and it will last for many more years. I tried ios for a while and it was pure garbage the very first day i already ran into problems i couldnt even download a song from the web browser.
Not an Apple fag or an Android fag but...
If you're buying anything other than a flagship phone you're fucking up.
I'm on a Galaxy Note 2 and it still keeps up with everything I throw at it. I don't see how people are fucking up other, newer phones, and here I am on a 3 year old phone running everything no problem. This is with the last version of 4.x or 5.1.1.
Xperia S was a flagship you retard.
I share your frustration, OP. I have a phone similar to Xperia S and oh boy it's a piece of shit. They even fucking dropped support despite it being almost identical to S and latest f/w is buggy. Custom Lollipop ROM also works better than any (debloated) stock f/w. Fuck Sony.
>When was the last time someone was forced to install a custom rom on his iPhone because it became literally unusable by design? Fucking never.
Because they can't
Have you seen any iPhone 4 or 4S lately?
>Laggy pieces of shit with awful battery life.
7 hours and 40 minutes left on %27
The t mobile g2 has a 6.0 rom and it was the first Android phone ever
The galaxy nexus has a very usable 6.0 to.
The nexus 4 has a very usable 6.0 rom
The nexus 5 runs better on 6.0 then 4.4
My79$ zmax 2 never lags
>Apple cucks btfo
I picked up an LG g3 for $160 with accessories (case) in November.
13 MP camera
Haven't seen lag yet but then again I only use my phone for text, email, and shit posting.
Still have a galaxy s3 and it runs pretty well.
Only reason I'm looking at other android phones is because I'm bored of mine and want something pretty looking like the Mi4 (alas, no compatible bands).
But yeah, my S3 works fine. Not sure what if other android phones have planned obsolescence.
Run oneofakind rom, works well. I got 25GB internal storage on this, its my Spotify machine.
Settings > Apps > running, and disable all that shit you don't need.
Also uninstall the shitty apps that are running in the background without you needing them.
Finally, realise that on an iPhone this problem is nonexistent because it doesn't make any fucking sense to let apps do this.
anything can happen to any phone
it could be dropped, someone could have accidentally broken it without the owner knowing
you're a literal ret'árd if you think you made a good point
Same phone, same age, same problem, i can barely get a day out of the battery. Got a new battery for a few bucks and it changed exactly nothing .
At some point in time it rapidly went from 36-48h battery life down to 16-20, without any changes to software. Android confirmed for killswitch
when you make a phone out of aluminium, sure it looks nice but when it falls it smashes.
My 'lagdroid' phone has been dropped quite a few times, and the back pops off - taking most of the force of the impact..saving the phone
Not op. Checked it for my phone out of curiosity.
this, the ROM is awesome
heres mine while running poweramp
OP youre a faggot
> ancient but still perfectly working iPhones
Had to change iphone4s year ago cause it was laggy as shite, and it was impossible to run more than 2 apps multitask due to lack of ram
