my brother has one, it's way too big, and I don't really need a barely pocketable computer

It's not.
No big phone is fa

iphone 5s was the last /fa/ phone

I would've bought my iPhone 6 in gold if it were today.

>>9575370
it has no expandable memory, which is a huge no for me

I have a gold one and imho the silver one looks better. I'm kinda tired of gold.

iPhone 5's + are the only /fa/ phone, all others are for nerds / poor people that smell

I was referring to how he denied iphones being the most /fa/ phone, my bad for being misleading. sorry

It's the iPhone 6 and you all know it is

1+ and Jolla are the only two /fa/ smartphones.

iPhone was /fa/ but now it's plebby.

>>9575991
s6 and other flagship phones are not for rich people wtf?

you can buy it on a fast food/retal salary
it's like $50/mo lol
>>
>>9576292
Meant if you're buying it without tab / contract..

S6 is ~$1k while the 1+ is ~$400
>>
>>9576324
yeah, that's true

most people who buy $1000 phones, like the latest iphone or galaxy, are nowhere near rich though, because they buy on contract

in north america, it's more of a hassle to get them unlocked off contract, because they'd rather have you stick with them for life
>>
>>9576334
it's more expensive to get a contract

you finance the phone in exchange for what is advertised as a discounted rate.

if you finance an s6 with $0 down and the cheapest contract it comes out to $200 a month for at least 24 months but realistically it's more like 36 months.

if you buy the new galaxy out right it's $800 and some change.

if you buy a branded phone aka financed phone you cannot legally get it unlocked.

apple was suing for the jailbreaking shit going on years back

if you buy it outright there are no federal laws telling you what you can/can't do
>>
>>9576334

What he said pretty much >>9576373

Although the cost *now* is cheaper on contract and you get the latest and greatest..

You're honestly best off saving up for a few months, buying a phone and getting it on a good plan. That way if another company comes out with a better monthly rate you can switch no problem.

Also, when the next gen comes out just sell what you have, it'll still be worth quite a bit, and save up the difference for the new model

Forever be up to date with cellphones and never worry about contracts or any of that headache
>>
>>9576373
>it's more expensive to get a contract
that's why carriers would rather sell you the contract

reading comp/inference/common sense
>>
>>9576418
yeah i know, thinking of getting 1+1, but apparently they're coming out with a new model?

i have a $20 phone and i pay $20/mo for my cell plan, don't really care much about having the latest and greatest

smrtphones just seem a little more useful (eg you can look up directions when you're outside, use camera to save notes)
>>
>>9576451
Yeah, 1+2 is supposed to come out around Q3 this year

All I know is that if you're gonna get a smart phone you'll be paying more than $20/mo. Not sure about the States but in Canada I'm guessing the minimum would be ~$40/month

I'm not sure what company but I remember talking about a modern flip phone that someone has (samsung, nokia, blackberry??? can't remember which).. But maybe something like that would interest you if you don't need all the perks of a smartphone but need something a bit better than a throwaway drug dealer phone lol

CAPTCHA: hatin

I always buy stolen phones
>>
>>9576494
yeah i think i'll just wait for 1+2 then

>All I know is that if you're gonna get a smart phone you'll be paying more than $20/mo. Not sure about the States but in Canada I'm guessing the minimum would be ~$40/month

$40/mo for what? i'm in canada too, most carriers are like $25/mo for unlimited calling, except for ripoffs like bell/rogers
>>
>>9576451
why are canadians so white trash

>i have a $20 phone and i pay $20/mo for my cell plan

>>9576494
there is an older dude in his late 40's that talks all about that stupid one plus one phone saying he got it at such a good price

and when he talks to other people about how expensive phones are he points at my gs5 for personal use and my z3 for company use

funny thing is i am his worst enemy and i pay him no mind beause i don't give a fuck about broke ass blokes with broke boi phones

no but seriously, nobody gives a shit about phones....why do people argue about them irl?
>>
>>9576516
why do you argue about them on the internet?
>>
>>9576515
You need a mobile data plan with smartphones, not just talk + text

>>9576516
i don't really get what you're saying about the 40y/o guy or whatever..

I haven't really argued phone's here, just what I think is the best right now and which is best value for money..

Only time I'll ever argue is against Apple, and that's not limited to phones.

But you're right though, nobody gives a shit. Everyone's got a phone and they all do the same shit. Specs don't matter to 90% of consumers anyways.. They could be using tech from 2009 and wouldn't even know it
>>
>>9576292
>buying phones on credit
see that's why you're working at mcburgers

I'd say Nokia Lumias or Jollas are pretty effay, especially if you want to be a special snowflake.
Samsung is plastic crap, iPhones have become common as fuck (they're still great phones though, it would be my second choice), but if you really wanted a decent android phone I'd get a Sony.
>>
>>9576548
This, the only good answer.
>>
>>9576523
not arguing

just making fun of /fa/ for being freaks n geeks

seriously bro i have seen your fit pics from years back, wearing that yes style nonsense, fetal alchol syndrome looking ass
texting chicks not interested in you on your burner
>>
>>9576548
i don't buy phones on credit myself.
I was talking about how most people who own those phones are not "rich" like the other anon said

My point is that they can afford to buy those phones because they buy on contract
>>
>>9576548
Well, to be fair the S6 isn't going to be plastic.

+ the Edge is pretty sweet as well

Maybe reconsider the Samsung review if all you don't like is plastic because it's going to be hands down the best phone once it comes out
>>
>>9576560
Link? I wasn't even into fashion "years ago" so i think you're talking about someone else
>>
>>9576542
ohhh data
you don't really *need* it, but yeah, i see what you're saying

>>9576567
edge is really weird though
it's the one where the screen goes down the side, right? pointless concept
>>
>>9576568
not user
>>
>>9576567
it's their first flagship that's not made from cheap plastic since like, forever?
but I'll not start about the 500 different types of galaxys they have, which are made of shit tier plastic.

honestly Samsung is a 100% shit tier company, the only reason they're big is because they spend 30 billion a year on advertising.

ok maybe not all of Samsung is bad, their SSDs are bretty gud, but the phone division sure is.
>>
>>9576584
I think you actually do need it, though. I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure a data plan is required on smart phones.. You'd have to check with whatever phone company you want on that though

Yeah, that's the edge. I guess it's for notifications and stuff like that. Different contacts flash different colours so if your phone is face down you can still tell who's calling. As far as I know that's the only advantage lol

>>9576608
Yeah I'm not too sure about all that.. My first Samsung phone was the S3 and it served me pretty good minus a couple issues here and there.. Don't know much else as before that I had Blackberry lol

Won't be going back to them though, 1+1 arrived in the mail today and that'll be my phone for the next year or so..
>>
>>9576628
Yeah the 1+1 is pretty nice, I love the material they used on the back, it's so nice on your hands. But Android has become what Windows is to computers, bloated because of the huge amount of hardware that the OS supports.

but I'm a Microsoft fanboy to the core, so I'll stick to Nokia's
>>
>>9576628
no, i have friends who pay $15/mo for text-only and use smartphones, i knpw that cuz i can never reach them lol

i think you need to use a sim card though, not the other gsm wireless shit

>>9576652
windows phone is smooth like ios, but has no features

you're right, android is a fucing ram whore
needs like 1gb just to swipe between the homescreen smoothly
>>
>>9576697
oh, then yeah looks like I'm wrong then. I haven't gotten a phone in a long time so it must have changed since then..

>>9576652
That makes sense [Windows/Android].. I'm not a big fan of Microsoft, and wouldn't have Windows if it wasn't for a bunch of software not being compatible with Linux.

My hopes and dreams died along with the Ubuntu phone :( That shit woulda been GOAT
>>
>>9576732
just like linux it would have been short lived hyped and not compatible with anything worthwhile

>>9576697
>i think you need to use a sim card though, not the other gsm wireless shit

doesn't matter each brand has their own preferred technology

they ust don't want you to call them because they have low mins

they have a data plan

you're an idiot

why did they ban pigfuck and keep you around dude?

This myth is wrong, or does it bother you that you can't snapchat or play candy crush?

The Ubuntu phone looked fucking sleek though.

i don't use either, but it definitely bothers a lot of people

you guys got some serious beef, eh..

But yeah, you guys are probably right. I do remember hearing a lot more about Ubuntu around the time 10-12 versions were out. I'm in web development so I still use Linux on 2/3 computers though... It's too bad because it's by far the best OS out there.

I heard they're working on another Ubuntu phone though. Not too sure how credible the source but wouldn't doubt it

Just remember when Ubuntu was real popular around the time windows vista? Was being peddled and everyone hated that used Linux for a year then went back to OS X and windows.

I haven't used OS X in a long while. I thing the last disro I used was tiger back when photoshop was only on Mac.

Switched to windows for more powerful engineering tools in college obviously.

okay, you have a point

>Windows/iOS are not objectively better than any linux distribution, by the way did you know that OSX is based on Unix, just like linux is, no way right haha?! XD
yeah, except os x is actually user friendly

>iOS/Android aren't objectively better than WP, Balmer just fucked Microsoft over and therefor iOS/Android got a head start
which makes them objectively better than wp, and all of them are better than the trainwreck that was going to be ubuntu for mobile

>Debian is so widely used because it's a fucking beast? Gay nerdy web admins are the only reason you can surf to 4chan right now
yeah, which is why debian is better than ubuntu. work on your reading comprehension
>>
>>9576922
you honestly don't have an argument you just ask people to explain shit and then you "agree" with it

t's fucking stupid

not only that you failed to show that you know the difference between the so-called products you transcend

windows 8.1
windows mobile
OS X (you refer to it as mac....macs can run windows....)
iOS

you showed no knowledge of the massive differences

probably because you don't have a decent phone and the only computer you have is probably an old as shit MBP
>>
>>9576952
completely irrelevant

the difference is already fucking obvious

if you need me to explain that to you, you're hopeless

still doesn't prove me wrong

Well, I left for a bit and this convo turned into a pissing contest... I just want one of you Linux haters to explain WHY it "sucks" and is useless?

The way I see it is that it's hands down the best OS available. Only place it falls short is software compatibility, and even there it's constantly growing. Might not ever catch up to Windows and Linux, but unless you need a niche app, you probably won't even notice..

And it's capabilities as far as what it CAN do, it's just so far ahead of Windows and OS X that it's not even an argument..

So I really fail to see how it "sucks".. Sure, it's not nearly as mainstream or popular as the other OSs, but it certainly does not suck.....
>>
>>9577206
>unless you need a niche app
no, quite the opposite
it's linux that's niche
does not appeal to mainstream consumers at all, otherwise people would have caught on by now

you would be better off ignoring this. Like all other OS discussions it's just hyperbole and fallacies. for some reason OS choice is hugely personal and people can't distance themselves from the argument. Just use what works best for you and don't care what others think.
>>
>>9577206
it's not free

redhat and fedora cost money


it doesn't run professional level software
it has numerous fomatting and compatability issues with mainstream professional environment utilities

linux is good for a student or for web borwsing

but you're not running cosmosflow works on it and when you're talking to a supplier from china and you send him a document in .XML because you're too cheap to buy industry standard and download some obscure shit from sourceforge or someshit you lose money and time

college kids can't swing the $3000 it takes to setup a decent workstation so it's understandable
>>
>>9577347

>redhat and fedora cost money
that's 2, out of a LOT...

>it doesn't run professional level software
and what software is that? I mentioned earlier it doesn't work with Photoshop, and if you read that it's one of the few things Linux lacks in.

Honestly, all of your points seem to be referring to the "arts".. Music, Design, etc.. Which I pointed out earlier is niche shit man..

It really seems you have NO idea what Linux is best for. There's a reason a large majority of websites run on it...

>linux is good for a student or for web borwsing
100% made up bullshit..

>but you're not running cosmosflow works on it and when you're talking to a supplier from china and you send him a document in .XML because you're too cheap to buy industry standard and download some obscure shit from sourceforge or someshit you lose money and time
What are you even saying? PS I work with people from China.. And if file format is your biggest problem then you're laughing, son..

college kids can't swing the $3000 it takes to setup a decent workstation so it's understandable
Eat it up, bud.. dropping $3K on a machine you can buy for half the price. For a better product (higher specs). Because you're too important to spend a couple hours installing what you need on your computer when you buy it. It's all there out the box. So easy. Worth double the price for sure... Right?

Please...
