Why do you not yet have the best price/performance phone on the market in your possession?
>>
>>45332710
>price/performance

I take it you drive a Mustang as well? And that we should all be driving that shitty car?
>>
"Best price/performance" means "I'm fucking broke andthis is the best I can afford."
>>
>>45332737
Some people just love to spend their money wisely, since they aint getting their shit paid for by mommy and daddy like most of /g/.
>>
>>45332757
Some of us have jobs. That's a thing that you go to every day, and then they pay... you know what, nevermind, I don't want to ruin the surprise.
>>
>>45332782
>spending more money than needed on something
hows your macbook and iphone doing? :^)
>>
>>45332872
>>45332782
Oh wait, guess you buy alienware instead because MOAR POWER lel
>>
>>45332737
Or you simply don't want to spend more on a phone. That's also a valid reason that should fit in your adult world. I don't value the additional features and the extra performance of a 500€+ phone, therefore I won't spend more than 200 bucks and get the best bang for my buck in that pricerange. Sounds reasonable, doesn't it?
>>
>>45332883
No you should spend $500+ on a phone mostly used to browse 4chan
>>
>>45332883
Sure it does.

Plus you get to pat yourself on the back for being poor.
>>
>>45332732
I dont have a car, because godtier public transportation here in germany

I have it and it's a piece of shit.
Its Non-Multitasking capabilities is driving me nuts.
>>
>>45332883
>>45332898
I'm sorry other people have more money to waste than you do on things that they want.
>>
>>45332907
Or I can spend that money on stuff that I actually value? Not everybody uses their phone for several hours a day and is a heavy user, I just need it to browse websites, to call people, to send text messages and to watch the odd video here and there. Why would I spend more money on a phone? But let me guess, "lawl pooor!!!!!" is your only response, right?
>>
because I got an x and have lollipoop
>>
>>45332924
I just waste my money on other things, i.e. not phones. Why is it so hard to understand that some people don't value their phone and their mobile experience that much?
>>
I see no reason to buy a more expensive phone than the G I got

- unbloated
- good size
- battery holds pretty well
- common, so there is custom rom support
- dual sim

flagship phones with dual sim cost like 100€ more than the normal models. which is idiotic.
>>
tfw still no qt Loli popping
>>
>people actually think they can act snobbish just because they wasted money on technology

that is so pathetic. and it's nerdy too.
>>
>>45333916
I wouldnt waste money on some locked down bloated shit like S5, G3, Z3 etc. Feels really pointless.
>>
>>45332710
It really depends on what are you planning to do with it, I have a Moto E btw ,I think it's perfect for me because I use it mostly for browsing and retrogaming via emulators (for more tech savy things such as programming/testing etc. I prefer a PC). it's the best one if you only need those things. Will try a Nokia Lumia soon, any tips?
>>
>>45334552
> Will try a Nokia Lumia soon, any tips?
make sure you can return it later again
>>
Is this still the best under $200 phone to get if all I want to do is watch my chinese cartoons, browse 4chan and maybe do some gaming with emulators?
>>
>>45334676
Yup, it is
>>
Can you guys post battery/screen on time
>>
>>45334693
>>
>>45334693
Battery
>>
I just picked up an LG Tribute yesteday, first charge on it gave me the pictured screen on time so I'm good to go. It's like a mix of a 1st gen Moto G LTE + a Moto E (because it has a removable battery + microSD slot).

I mean, it cost $40, it's fucking awesome and with some tuning I'll easily be getting 8+ hours of SOT every fuckin' day if I want.
>>
>>45335045
>LG Tribute
Shh, /g/ refuses to accept that the Moto G chipset exists in superior phones (due to build and removable 3A battery) that cost a fraction of the price.
>>
>>45335062

The Tribute literally is the best deal out there right now, the only downsides are it's CMDA/LTE only (no GSM radio at all inside) and 800x480 resolution but I don't give a fuck about that anymore. It does everything I want, has a Wolfson DAC for outstanding audio quality, the removable battery, microSD, Snapdragon 400 quad core CPU, etc.

Fuck yeah, best $40 I've spent on tech in a long damned time.
>>
>>45332922
Yeah, that suck. Even ram manager pro doesn't work very well.
You could try the xposed module "app settings", and make the apps you use more in multitasking as resident, so they won't be killed.
inb4 it will slow your device a bit.
>>
Getting a Zenfone 5 instead, it's cheaper.
Already slated to get Android 5.0
>>
Stupid question: when dafaq rom for moto g 2014 will arrive? No cyanogenmod support till now...
>>
>>45335137
being cdma only is a really deal breaker. the resolution is usable, but pretty potato tier in 2014.

that said. cdma variants of the moto g have been as little as $50 in the us, and now there's a gsm version of the moto g in the us for $99.

from /g/'s perspective, it's pretty hard to argue in favor of a non molested version of android. i think that's one of the major reasons the moto g is so popular despite other snapdragon 400 platforms existing in competing price ranges.
>>
>>45334693
Old Moto G, I get 3-4 days out of it, usually about 2-3 hours of screen on time.
>>
Is anyone's Moto-G completely redrawing your home screen every time you hit the home button in Android L? Extremely annoying and making the phone seem much slower than it is (almost like cold booting every time you press home)
>>
Gifted one to my teen sis last Xmas. I'm not very impressed with the screen and the vibration motor, but the core functions are okay.

I'm on the one plus now, the bang for the buck is okay too out his one
>>
>2014
>not having 2 of everything

actually i irreversibly bricked one of them so you know
>>
>>45336731

I have this with my Nexus 5... Seems like an android bug.
>>
>>45336796
LOLI MOTO G WHEN?
>>
>>45332737
Nah that would be the Moto E
>>
>>45336753

Vibration motor is the most important feature for teen girls. You fucked up anon, she hates you now.
>>
>>45335137
It looks like the Tribute has literally no compatibility with any Australian networks. Is the Moto E the only reasonable alternative?

My dad had a 2013 Moto G
His wife bought a 2014 Moto G

The 2014 one is awful, the screen is absolutely terrible, even compared to the original, and the speakers are not good at all.

Besides, it costs 200€. It's way too expensive for the hardware on offer. It was good last year, now it's just overpriced, especially when you can get 2013's Moto X (a vastly superior device) for only marginally more money.

I've got one, it's not really something I'd recommend to anyone. It's just a cheap Android phone like dozens of others, and you should only consider it if you're really hard up for cash.
>>
>>45337216
My salary comes first friday, so I think I won´t be able to activate it...
And what about it the black friday on the oneplus one?
>>
>>45332710
have no money for a new phone at the time
>>
I could have bought one for 1200 pesos one year ago.
They are over 3k now.
But I don't have any friends to call so I don't give a fuck.
>>
>>45332918
I live somewhere with pretty good public transporation and it still doesn't come close to having your own car.
>>
because I have a moto E. even cheaper
>>
>>45332757
And those people buy chinkphones, not any shillphone that cost nearly half a minimum salary or more.

What can you do with dual sim anyways? The moto G is literally my first mobile phone ever, and while I got a good idea of what a sim card does, why would you need two of them?
>>
>>45338313
Having two sim cards instead of one allows you to:

- be reachable under 2 different numbers
- get double the network coverage. Imagine having two different providers, of which one has less coverage than the other in certain areas, so you can switch around
- use two different providers at the same time. like when you want to switch numbers but are too lazy to shell out the money for porting your old number. so you can just keep your old and new numbers both around

I have two different providers here in germany, one is netzclub. which runs on the E1 net, and is really ass, but its free to use HSDPA with it since its ad sponsored. the other is my regular number, under which I am reachable most of the time but internet costs 24 cent/MB used
>>
>>45332710
Because I have a Nexus 5 like every other non-retarded person.
>>
>>45338480

>shit battery life
>not retarded
>>
is the 2014 version worth getting over 2013?

Why the hell can't the newest model have expandable memory and 4G too?
>>
>>45332710
fucking idiot still shilling this trash. it's not even as convincing as it used to be, lmao. i got my g2 for ZERO DOLLARS with an upgrade and it is SEVERAL TIMES BETTER AND FASTER THAN THIS. and the g3's already out. every phone is practically free if you buy it at the right time, and you're still trying to tell us this ANTIQUATED PIECE OF GARBAGE is the 'best'? stop FUCKING kidding yourself you demented shitstain, this phone is worthless. this phone came out, what, 3 years ago? more? give it a fucking rest, your efforts are better used shilling some new shit. shill some new shit, brah.
>>
>>45338512

"Shit battery life" is not true anymore since Lollipop.
>>
Good
>>
>>45338539
>contract phone
>free

fucking mindless consumer
>>
Loli popping where? ;___;
>>
>>45332710
Because there are no custom roms for the second generation version yet.
>>
Already have a tablet and Dumbphone, I may grab one during Black Friday.
>>
>>45338848
you pay out your ass when you buy this shit full price, brah. can't be callin anyone mindless consumers when you own a smartphone in the first place. die, shitbag.
>>
>>45338525
Newest Model does have a SD Slot, it's the 3G it's still lacking.
>>
>no lte
>2014
Hahha ok

I'll be going with the moto x 2013 developer edition instead
>>
>>45339095
or you could buy the LTE model which costs like 10-20$ more, I just wish they offered it in the 2nd Gen model, They could still keep it sub 200$
>>
>>45338462
I swear is this a EU thing? Your service providers are so bad that you NEED two? Is this why Dual sim phones are so big over there?
>>
>>45337245
How is the screen worse? It's only like slightly bigger compared to the last model..
>>
>motorola
>just got sold to lenovo

motorola is dead, I wouldn't buy anything from them
>>
>>45335220
>now there's a gsm version of the moto g in the us for $99.
Fucking WHERE?
>>
>>45339193
isn't it the same resolution?
>>
>>45339149
Why would I but that ugly piece of shit?

Droid turbo looks better
>>
>>45332710
Should I get the Nexus 6 for about £750 on contract or the Nexus 5 for about £500? Need to upgrade from my second-hand iPhone 4S
>>
>>45339233
Yes but it's only .3 inches bigger compared to last model.
>>
>>45339240
Because it's cheap and works good and offers LTE, if your so worried about style I think you should get the newest iPhone..
>>
>>45336731
>>45336796

Found the problem: Left the home screen on a page without Google Play Music widget and it loaded instantly. Removing the widget fixed the problem

Someone file a bug report with the botnet
>>
i do ahave a 2014 moto g and i cant get any signal on it
>>
>>45339446
It's crashing because you don't have enough ram. I heard there was some major ram usage bug reported for moto g
>>
>>45339171
Its not that bad that I need two, it just comes in handy. Good for work as well: One SIM is for work, other for family. Keeps you from carrying two of them around
>>
>>45339171
One of the moto /g/ main markets is Brazil, and here every carrier sucks major ass and is absolutely trash. You pay a lot for shitty service but most of them allow you to call to numbers on the same carrier for free, so having two carriers is a big plus in that matter.
And sometimes even tho u r rich, you might be in a business where it's good to have two numbers to be more convenient to your clients.
>>
>>45339288
which means you have to keep it 12 inches away from your eyes to reach retina (tm) level
old motog was 11 inches
>>
Because I'm waiting for Verizon to get the Nexus 6, so I don't have to cough up $700.
>>
>>45339272
>500 fucking pounds for a cellphone
WHY

Is the second gen Moto G basically the same shit with a larger screen?
