Should I get the LG G3 or the Oneplus X ? (Canada)
Both phones are similarly prices and have similar specs. The removable battery is a plus for the G3, but the ROM support for the OPX is a plus too. I plan to root and unlock the bootloader and all that stuff.

Phones have a far higher failure rate than 1%, duderino.

It is when they literally came out with an "extra" warranty to cover what is typically covered under a one year warranty.

They try to blame everything on the user, everything is physical damage according to them.

That's what you get when you buy chinkshit.

Thinking of getting a 3rd gen moto /g/ for my first smartphone and loading cyanogenmod onto it.

I am not buying it for any specific reason - mainly the utility of being able to use the internet anywhere, read my PDFs on the train, and maybe use some language learning app or whatever.

The biggest factors for me are battery life, price, and compatibility with CM. I don't really want to spend over $300. Can anyone confirm/deny that this is a reasonable choice?

Sup /g/. Verizon's giving me an early Edge upgrade, and I'm thinking about the HTC One A9, but there's still no word as to whether or not Verizon is getting the phone. Should I wait until December to see if it they actually get A9, buy it unlocked and hope for the best (no service in areas that don't have 4GLTE), or just get a G4/V10 (because "muh SD slot")?

Does anyone else play Real Racing 3? Does your phone get a steady 60 FPS?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 and the frame rate is all over the place. I almost never get a full 60 except maybe when there are no cars around and very little scenery.

I thought this phone was going to be amazing. I was expecting performance to play Real Racing 3 at full and then some. The frame rate is even worse in Asphalt 8.
>>
>>51465429
its not the SoC its the app developer, the Exynos 7420 is the most powerful android SoC on the market, if the app doesn't work on it, it's not because of lack of power, or else literally no phone could run the app. It means the developer has shitty code.
>>
>>51465472

I heard there was going to be an OS update to Samsung/Android phones early next year. Could that fix it? I can't get a steady 60fps in anything, even YouTube.
>>
>>51465522
>even YouTube
factory reset cause that shouldnt be happening.

And the update coming Dec/Jan/Feb. will help a bit, but it shouldnt be having these problems even in 5.1.1

I have a note5 and youtube is fine at 60fps.
>>
>>51465535

I've done two resets and the frame rate still lags. I tried to return it to AT&T but they refused to acknowledge it as a problem.

On my PC and laptop, 60fps videos are perfectly smooth, but they jump all over the place on my S6. I would really like to know from someone else who has an S6 how well youtube and games like RR3 perform.
>>
>>51465673

On an added note, I played RR3 on a Galaxy Core Prime, and it ran at a steady 60fps (although at a lower graphics setting).

Make sure to get the N910T3 if you go for that one.

>>51466238
What's the difference?

So would you recommend the N910T3 over the N910C for Cricket/AT&T as well?

>>51466255
The N910T3 was a revised version released at a later date. For some reason the N910T hasn't gotten the OTA update to 5.1.1 yet however the N910T3 HAS, T-mobile reps seem confused as to whats going on and dont have an ETA for one the N910T will get it, if it is getting it.

It's a weird situation desu senpai

I don't really take very many pictures but when I do I'd like them to look nice. Lots of browsing, a little bit of music. I mostly do podcasts. Average usage? Above normal I guess? I'm on my phone a lot. If you're looking for SOT I have no clue as right now I have an iPhone and they measure that differently

>>51466659
If you use your phone more than most people, you should get the Z3C. It has really juicy battery life. Nexuses are only good for those who want quick updates straight from google and care about stock android.

Elaborate in depth about the battery life, screen and sound quality

I'm deciding between this and the galaxy alpha, for me that one feels better because no scratchy glass, removeable battery aka instant charge and AMOLED. Of course the Z3 has much better battery but since the Alpha has removeable ones it's probably a better choice since I won't be stuck to the wall charger

What do you guys think about Whileyfox Storm? It's Britbongs version of 1+1, but with somewhat better camera(s), dual SIM/MicroSD support, smaller battery, 32GB ROM and SD605. It costs 200 pounds, plus 10pounds for 3year warranty or 1 year "free" screen replacements.

My biggest concern is that it's from a new company and as far as the development goes one guy managed to root it.

Excellent. I get 5-7 hours SOT depending what I'm doing. 2 days is absolutely possible. I have been off the plug since 10am, its 1am next day now and in at 50% battery life, with 2:31 of SOT.
10/10

>screen
Meh. I love amoled, and an bias towards it. I went from S2 to S4 to Moto X 2013 to this so I still prefer amoled. BUT, there is a white balance setting that helps get the colors how you like them within the settings. It's a good screen. 720p is not a downside.
7/10

>sound quality
Speakers are great and get loud, though they aren't the most detailed ones though i think that's because of the waterproofing. Being able to shower with it is cool, though I don't do it often. They are good, front facing speakers. Not boomsound, but good.
Headphones, its OK. It seems to have a weak amp, as the headphones don't get as loud as they are in every other device I own.
8/10 speakers
6/10 headphones

Hope that helps.

Sony's skin is pretty lightweight as is, but check their "Marshmallow concept", it's literally vanilla android + apps, just like Moto does it

I'm sort of with you. The only reason I want to upgrade from my Nexus 5 is battery. It was never spectacular but I'm starting to have trouble getting through the day. 1.5-2 hours sot. Performance is fine. I don't take a lot of photos but a better camera obviously wouldn't hurt.

Hey, I'd recommend getting a phone unlocked outright, if only for the sole purpose of using Vaya. Vaya (look em up) has the cheapest phone plans I've seen, in fact I'm on the $18 per month one right now, with 1.5gb mobile data and $650 talk and text. Trust me, you won't get a better deal anywhere else.
In terms of phones, a price range would be nice, but in terms of budget oriented devices, you can't go wrong with the OnePlus X, which you can get off DWI (look em up too), which I'd recommend due to the retarded invite system OnePlus uses. If you're not comfortable with a Chinese "grey market" device, I'd wait for the Moto G3 to drop here in Australia.
Hope this helps

Who here has bought a used phone before? I really want the moto x pure edition, but I can't spend more than $300 and I think I'll have to wait a year for the price to drop to that.

People on swappa should be selling them that cheap in a few months though, but I don't have any experience buying used. Have most of you guys had good experiences?
>>
>>51472215
The thing has the same chip as the moto g, a 720p screen and 2gb ram(iirc)

It can easily take Android if enough people who know what they're doing buy it. It should definitely be up there. The thing is like $60
>>
Anyone with OnePlus X? Hows the battery?
>>
>>51472241
I'm personally not a fan, I've been buying smartphones since the old Windows Mobile days. Shit happens with every company. I've owned phones from almost every company, every major OS, and it's worth it to have that original warranty.

Personally, if I couldn't afford something, I'd rather buy something new that's not as powerful.

Check out the Moto /g/ 3rd gen, 2gb RAM version.

>>51472262
>It can easily take Android if enough people who know what they're doing buy it. It should definitely be up there. The thing is like $60

That's really interesting actually, that's fucking nothing. That's a night out with the wife.

I seriously considered this but I'm on Verizon, and the moto g doesn't work properly on CDMA networks. As a matter of fact, none of the budget phones work properly on Verizon networks, which is why I'm stuck waiting for a price drop.

>>51472286
Unfortunately no one in my area is selling it. I've heard good things about Swappa though, so I'm considering ordering it online. I'll have to look into how much liability the site takes if something goes wrong though.

>at $60 it doesn't matter

Not when it comes with a popular chipset, 2gb ram, and a 720p screen it doesn't. It will still make the calls, texts and surf the web watching movies and yt vids at 720p. Just won't be able to cast them or use snapchat among other frivolous apps, but it would get the job done for that price.

>Oh looks like you can get refurb Moto X 2014s for around 250 bucks that work on Verizon
thanks for looking, but I've seen this already. Problem with it is that there's no reliable way to unlock the bootloader on the verizon version of the x 2014.
>>
>>51471565
Should be perfect for SEA. Check bands to make sure.
>>
>>51472695
Yeah, fuck Verizon.

You're gonna have to spend more, I'm afraid. Nexus 5x - I can't think of any other unlocked CDMA phones that aren't for Verizon prepaid only.
>>
>>51472742
I was deciding between the x pure and 5x, but once the nexus 5x came out most people said that it didn't have very good performance and lagged in basic multitasking. That being said, I'll probably buy it if it drops to $300 before the x pure.

I've had my current shit phone (razr m) for more than 2 years already, and it's starting to lose developer support on xda, so I'd like to get a new phone asap.
>>
Anyone have any clue why my samshit s4 is running with 2hour battery life. I thought it might have been the battery so I got a new one but same issue. Cleared cache and still nothing.

>>51472774
>most people said that it didn't have very good performance and lagged in basic multitasking

Eh, I wouldn't say most.

You have to keep in mind that the Nexus devices are bought by anal enthusiasts. They're going to complain more. I've seen this time and time again with enthusiasts devices.

You have to take that with a grain of salt.

You won't see it drop in price until the next Nexus devices come out, most likely.

The Pure might go on sale next weekend. If it drops 100 bucks, I might pull the trigger on the Pure as well.
>>
Should I get the LG G3 or Oneplus X? They're similarly priced and similarly specced devices.

G3 has the advantage of a larger screen and removable battery, but the flaw of 1440p resolution (A flaw because it makes no noticeable difference and eats up GPU power and battery life).

OPX has the plus of AMOLED screen, nice size, and hopefully a good customization + development community. However no removable battery, which I do like
>>
>>51472819
G3
root it and lower the screen resolution.
>>
>>51463063
C# is a lot eaiser to develop in than java. However that still means another language to write your app in (if you don't go mono or c++ route). And Windows phone doesn't nearly give you as much control as Android. With that said I would write an app in C# over Java and Obj C every time if I had the choice.

Currently torn between the moto g 2015 and the oneplus x.

oneplus x looks incredibly fragile, that's why I'm currently leaning towards the moto g 3rd gen.

Does anyone here using it with cyanogenmod? any bad experiences?
>>
>>51472858
Moto /g/ 3rd gen with 2GB ram is a truly good phone.

I'd trust Motorola's support over Oneplus, just because they're a far larger company. Even despite the Lenovo shit.
>>
>>51472858
>oneplus x looks incredibly fragile
literally meaningless. How a phone looks has no bearing on how fragile or prone to failure it is. Unless you mean prone to scratches / scuffs, but then that's why it comes with a case
>>
>>51472883
>I'd trust Motorola's support over Oneplus
that's also one of the main points for motorola here.

although I think I'd lose warranty anyway if I unlock the bootloader.

>>51472886
>Unless you mean prone to scratches / scuffs
yes that's what I mean.
>>
>>51472920
I don't think the unlocked versions would have anything that would show you broke warranty if you changed the bootloader. Might want to look that up.

Oneplus we know has shit support. Motorola historically was great. I have personal experience with that. Then, Lenovorola happened.

I'm looking for a phone similar to the moto g (5' 1280x720 screen, at least 1gb of ram, decent cpu) but with a removable battery. CM support is a must.

Am I screwed?
>>
>>51472947
apparently you really lose warranty if you unlock your bootloader of the moto g 2015.

you'll have to enter a code on their website (device ID) and if you do that the warranty is automatically void. That's a bummer.

not for long I guess. According to their website they'll send out invites on a regular basis during november.

I wouldn't worry too much about it since the os still has some issues that need to be fixed.

>>51475293
You've gotta be a cu ck to let a company dictate when you can purchase their device.

I plan to have 70+ gigs on music on the thing.
>>
>>51475453
That's your own autistic problem buddy.

Anyone who "needs" 70GB of any sort of media on their phone 24/7 is a fucking idiot.


I have playlists. I keep 5-10GB of music on my phone and swap out to another Playlist when I get tired of that one.


If you examine your listening statistics on that 70GB of music I bet $20, 1/3rd has been played less than 3 times.
>>
>>51475508

Why so hostile man? Because I want a certain feature?
>>
>>51475086
So this is my opinion, and I'll state at first that I'm considering buying this phone because I want a phone that has no issues with rooting/changing shit. I don't like to spend money on electronics I can't tinker with.

I think that yes, there are issues.

Yes, there are manufacturing issues. We've seen this in many phones over the years. Nearly every metal unibody phone has issues like bending. Nearly every Nexus release seems to have some issues as well.

You have to consider that part of this is because this phone is targeted at enthusiasts. They will be a bit more anal about problems, and also more likely to post about it online.

>>51475138
Still looking, had to go unload the dishwasher.

>>51475526
No because mSD should have died 5 years ago when it first started being shitty garbage.


There are plenty of storage options besides mSD cards.

You're being forced to wait on an invite from a shitty chink phone company with no warranty for a phone with specs from 2013. And the only reason you want it is the mSD card (and the fact it's invite only probably tickles you)

Just seems pretty dumb
>>
>>51475508
I don't think you should be so insulting, but I don't see why someone needs 70GB of music either on their device at all times.

However, there is something to be said for having your entire collection on one device. I have a Zune 80GB that still works and it can just barely fit everything I have. It's great for roadtrips or when I was in college, to parties.

Ok this depends on where you are

Yes, to root or install other roms/recoveries you have to unlock your bootloader, which requires an unlock code from Motorola. This void your warranty the moment you get the code.

However, if you are in Europe, under EU law, they have to honor your warranty. You'd just want to purchase from a 3rd party retailer that can handle the return.

G3 with Fulmics ROM is not laggy and battery is good.

Get a G3.

Just using the Android device as a second display, plugged into the TV?

Has this been done before?
>>
>>51478044
For what fucking purpose
>>
>>51477656
Yes, if you want better battery and performance than stock, and to also do away with the awful sharpening filter on the stock ROM.

If you got a G3 and didn't flash Fulmics, you're an idiot. It's literally stock, but with no bloat, better battery and better performance.
>>
>>51476651
>actually kek'd
>>
>>51478133
Lots of uses. For one, you could then record SCR Pro.
>>
>>51478215
I don't see how you would even output from a TV to HDMI if you expect it to already be displaying something from another source.

And then, you want to butcher framerates and even sound by using your Android as a makeshift DVR.

Not to mention, the MLH support that only a few phones have is output only, not import.

The time spent trying to rip media in this way is better spent in the myriad ways that already exist.

Tl;dr- that's stupid and no

Calm down, friend. No one at highschool is going to care about you being able to use that Deviantart skin on your w7 install.

WHAT PHONES DOES /g/ RECOMMEND FOR SOMEONE ON VERIZON?

Fuck. Damnit, I want to install a custom rom

>>51477290
Where did you get it that cheap, anon?
>>
So I am temporarily putting my PC dreams on hold to get a phone and because I will need money for other things. Thinking I'll go with a MotoXPureEdition after some research(ZenFone 2 Laser was nice but I need TMobile Band 12 Support).

The only thing I have to decide now is whether I should buy through MotoMaker or Amazon. I hear motorola has terrible support while Amazon is stellar and I won't have to wait for the phone to be built on Amazon. Is there any reason not to get it through Amazon?

Other questions to anyone with it:

How is it one-handing it? Also what would you say your hand size is.

Okay, just that one for now.

Reminder that Samsung phones have always been superior in every single generation, and this is no exception. The S6 is literally the fastest android phone yet, only to be superseded by the S6edge+ and Note 5. It has tons of features too, like private mode, increased touchscreen sensitivity, real-time kernel protection so niggers can't flash your phone when it's stolen, multi-windows, the most accurate and beautiful screen you can get, and a superb camera which is the best after the Z5 (by an insignificant margin). It also has the fastest i/o and the fastest charging speeds (behind the edge+, which incidentally also has a bigger battery). This is hands down a clear-cut case of technological superiority only available to Samsung flagship users. The Note 5 is by far the best, fastest, most complete smartphone to date in the history of cellphones and mankind.

Does this phone have a good battery? (Moto X 2nd gen)

>>51479282
Of course you wont be able to touch all the 4 corners with you finger without having to move the others.
Tested the X Play a couple days and one thing I have to say about Motorola it's that I enjoy the holding experience and the curve on the back. You are most likely not to drop it, even if the Pure it's one or two inches bigger.
>>
>>51476258
No one ?
Alternatively, what's the most reliable ROM for the Nexus 4 ?

I've had issues with just about every custom ROM I've tried on it so far.
>>
>>51476258
Sailfish/jola or BB.

I'm late, what phone is this?
>>
>>51472819
AMOLED is not a plus when most apps and web pages are white/bright, it's a minus. So a 1440 LCD will use less battery in the real world than a 1080 AMOLED.

add to that swappable batteries / a Zerolemon battery with the LG vs non removable in the OnePlus.

add to that LG's mature and stable software vs the still raw and buggy OnePlus OS (i don't want to be overly critical, but if you go to the OnePlus forums and look at people's OnePlus 2 battery life, it's way lower than it should be. it's not because of the hardware (big battery, 1080 LCD display), but because OxygenOS is still buggy as fuck and draining battery by itself.)

go for the LG, [email protected]

>Ample 4.5″ IPS qHD (960×540) display
So is it 2560x1440 or 960x540 ?
>>
>>51479986
qHD doesn't stand for QuadHD, stop being retarded.
>>
>>51479958
This is incorrect. Newer AMOLED panels like those found on the S6/Note 5 are more power-efficient than older generations while also being more accurate and bright.
>>
>>51480005
Oh there's a difference between QHD and qHD, I was not aware of this. But there's a dealbreaker then.
Anything less than 1280x768 is a no go since I can't stand gianthuge fonts and UI elements, and I don't think it's possible to achieve a small enough font size while still being readable at a smaller resolution than that.
Pic related, I have my Nexus 4 set to 180 DPI.

5-year iPhone 4 user in the market for a new phone here (US)

checking out the Nexus line and interested in the 6P and Project Fi, is Project Fi legit or just another meme like Fiber?
>>
>>51480079
Just the Jolla name should be a deal breaker.
If you feel risky go for BB then, but you are locked into the passport, unless you wanna go all the way back to the Z line.
You'll need to go back to android or ios at some point.

LG G3 VS Moto X Play

Can't decide. Price is the same.

Which is the better camera?
Which is the better build?
Leaning towards G3 because of expandable storage and that display.
>>
>>51480180
>Leaning towards G3 because of expandable storage
X Play supports 128gb too, some people made 200gb mSD work for it.

>>51480200
Oh for some reason I remember hearing there wasn't expandable storage on the X Play.
Canadian version btw.

There really is no better option out there than Android, huh ?

Oneplus X user here, been loving it so far. Battery is above average, 4.30h SOT.
>>
>>51472277
OPX user, battery is pretty par. 3-ish hours with heavy gaming. A 7am-3pm gaming day had me at 20%, but the battery saver managed to let me listen to some music on my commute back home.

I don't get the hate, other than the slightly shakey software in terms of issues and lack of features, it's smooth as butter.
>>
>>51480245
It's the same model for America. The only different model on the market it's the European with Dual sim support.

>>51480250
Pretty much, unless you wanna try your luck with windows.
>>
>>51480308
ah I see. Wonder why they aren't putting out the Style here

any opinions on the cameras between the G3 and the X Play?
>>
>>51479958
Seriously stop shit talking about amoled display when you clearly know nothing about it. The burn in in recent amoled displays is very rare, the quality of it completely destroys LG G3 display. I personally own the OPX, it's been absolutely amazing so far. My dad owns the G3, OPX's display is beyond comparison, much better. Performance is faster as well. Lg wins camera wise, that's it.
>>
>>51480308
Honestly, Windows is kind of tempting at this point.
But there's the whole issue of fuckhuge UI elements on all touch devices by default, do you know if you can change the DPI scaling on Windows phones ?
I can't seem to find any concrete information about this.
>>
>>51480048
Nope, THIS is incorrect. While AMOLED technology is becoming more efficient every year, when it comes to displaying whites and similar bright shades (most web pages and apps), the best AMOLED panel is still significantly less power efficient compared to LCD.
They are also less accurate, not more.
>>
>>51480302
The hate is simple, it comes from ignorant people parroting the "chink phone" meme.

I own the OPX and I'm amazed so far, this thing will last 2 years easily. It completely blows my sister's Moto G 2015.
>>
>>51480384
Pretty sure you can't, Windows Phone it's like a little box full of padlocks that nobody tries to break when it's about OS hacks or mods. I'm not even aware if there's something like Root or jailbreak for Windows Mobile.
>>

I didn't even mention burn-in. I'm talking about power consumption.
Learn to read and stop being such a butthurt fanboy.

Also, my previous phones were the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S4. I know plenty about AMOLED and am never going back to it.

>mfw
>>
>>51480432
It's not too misguided, that meme.
I owned a real chink phone, a ZOPO C2. Was decent at the time, but the MEDIATEK is fucking shit. Its bloated and slow even after a factory reset. Hardware degradation? IDK.

The OPX truly is wonderful, save for me being forced to use MTP when transferring files. And that the speaker is kinda shitty.

Love the AMOLED and the design, the chipset isn't half bad either, even though I don't strive for a whole lot of performance.

So what goes on an SD card?

Music, Videos, Pics? I'm planning on getting just 16 GB phone to save money.
>>
>>51480558
I think you can move heavy apps to sd card too, havent really tried doing it, I might later 'cuz I want to play Need for Speed

>>51480656
I read that when you move apps on the SD they can run slower.
Not sure if that it's actually true.

what are some good apps for windows phone?
specifically a video player and music player?

I got a lumia 640 recently because it was cheap.
>>
>>51468837
>>51463403
I just got one. It's 720p, screen looks decent, build is decent. good battery life. OS is what you would expect. pretty damn good for the $60 I paid but I expect you could probably get better specs from a cheap android phone direct from china. I went with this instead because I needed a phone fast that I could get in a store for cheap, and I'm not really familiar with android. plus getting a random android phone from a company I know nothing about I feel like I'm taking more of a risk on software and hardware.

I want this, but glass back and non replaceable battery kill it for me.

Dont know if it measures cpu and gpu individually though
>>
>>51480422
uwot. The Note 5 has the most color accurate screen of any phone on the market, not to mention better white levels than any LCD screen phone.
>>
>>51475609
So in your opinion, it's a nonissue?
>>
>>51481089
moto x play
battery life is top class
software is
2GB RAM is enough unless you're a super autist multitasker
build quality is good
released very recently so will be supported with update for at least 2 years
and cheaper

posting from mine right now

Switched from a 4s to the s6edge+

Ive never been happier, iphone a shit
>>
>>51481185
all good points
2GB is plenty enough for me

how about camera? I heard theres no image stabilization. Does it make a difference?
>>
>>51481274
yes it does, I've tried them out in store. The camera leaves a little bit to be desired.
>>
>>51480754
that article clearly states, dozens of times, that for whites/brights, LCDs are more efficient than even the latest and greatest AMOLED panels.

also, when comparing power use for mixed content
1) 'mixed' content is very unclear. people regard watching videos as mixed content, but no one will watch videos and do nothing else. realistically, mixed use is at least partially web browsing and peoples most used apps, all of which is mostly white/bright.
2) it compares the Note 5 to a fucking iPhone. nigga please. everyone knows iPhones have awful battery life. they shpuld have compared it to an LG or a Motorola or Sony LCD display. oh wait, but then that would show that even with 'mixed' content, LCDs still blow the latest AMOLED technology the fuck out.
>>
>>51481307
thats a bummer

battery life isnt really too important for me
so im kinda leaning towards the G3
>>
Taking the plunge on my first smartphone. Went with a LG G3 since it seems pretty nice, and isn't a huge buy.

Is cricket wireless any good? Coverage seems good in my area.
>>
>>51481274
can't say, haven't even tested it out yet, and don't really care.
(gf dumped me earlier this year so i have nothing to take photos of any more ;_;)
>>
>>51481374
Oh the Moto certainly has to have a better camera than an older phone especially since LG didn't have good cameras until recently.

I'm not sure I can give you good advice here though.
>>
>>51481141
>accurate
lmao, how's life in meme land?

colours on AMOLED are certainly bolder, more vivid. but that doesn't mean accurate. cartoonish would be a better word for it.

>better whites than LCDs
hahahahahahaha

No love for the xiaomi mi 4c? I know it sucks in NA but cmon, $250 for such an amazing phone?
