As close to stock Android as possible.

>>61172670
The Nexus 5 power button has a design flaw that, after a few years of use, causes it to be stuck down. When this happens, the phone thinks you are perpetually holding the power button and will be unable to boot (it turns off mid-boot). This can be temporarily fixed in a few ways:

>hitting your phone against the wall like a retard to knock the button free
>rolling your phone along a flat surface like a hacksaw to pop the button free
>flicking the button with your finger until it pops free
>tearing the phone apart, removing the motherboard and using contact cleaner to lubricate the button

I'm tired of having to do this shit every few days just to use my phone, so I'm getting a new one. After this last bout, it won't turn on at all no matter what I try.

There's a Nexus 5X for $110 that I'm really tempted to grab despite that it's plauged with the bootloop woe. The seller hardly even used it, mostly had it laying around collecting dust. He has the receipt and box. Should I go for it, /spg/? I'm a very tight $100 budget so this is my best bet besides a LG G4 for $80-ish or so. TALK ME OUT OF IT /spg/ and the 5X is still under warranty
>>
>>61173389
Shame LG or Google don't give a shit about warranty when it comes to bootloop unless the device was purchased on the Google Store :)

>>61173862
I guess they're really running out of ideas. U11 has that silly squeeze function and S8 slapped in a button for an assistant, on a phone that already has another assistant. I mean what else can they really do at this point, every phone runs smooth, the screen resolutions don't need to get better, cameras are good, screens are starting to cover the whole face of the phone. Batteries are the only thing that really need to get improved but that's not happening soon
>>
>>61174190

>>61174288
Can't say, I'm not sure what carbon fiber feels like to the hand. I always imagined it as smooth and slippery as well. Probably depends on the texturing, if it's smooth or bumpy. My kevlar thing has this rubbery feel to it which I like. Prefer it over the metal back on the phone, and the rounded edges feel nicer

How long do you think that could take? I don't really pay attention to phone stuff so I have no frame of reference. I just need a new one within the next few days.

If I buy a moto g5+ today, how much do you think I could resell for in a few months? I take good care of my stuff so it'll almost certainly be like new.
>>
>>61174439
yea they never said that. they said that their team is working on it, but i don't see why people would trust them anymore
>>
>>61174392
Apart from that defect it's not a bad phone at all. It just doesn't have quite all the bells and whistles as some other flagships, and with the price jump there's not an obvious price advantage anymore. Like the G6 for instance, the cameras are arguably nicer, the screen resolution is higher and I think it has some type of water resistance. But then there are things which are down to preference, for instance the OP5 has capacitive buttons while the G6 only has on-screen ones, the fingerprint reader is in the back on the G6 and in the front on the OP, the OP5 also has that button/slider for toggling between silent/do not disturb which is surprisingly convenient. At this stage it's really just down to which phone best does the things you want it to do
>>
>>61174312
The assistant button is something that nobody received well, but beside that, there's the attempt from Samsung to give an alternative to Google's products, which I think is a good thing, if they didn't try to shove them down our throats forcefully.

The only way to upgrade battery life would be by renouncing to performance increases, which at this point is really wasted for most users anyway, in favor of a significant decrease in power consumption.

Other than that, I think camera can improve significantly more. Sooner or later we'll have phones with three cameras: a wide angle, a high magnification telephoto, and a regular camera, all stabilized and with high resolution.
>>
>>61174414
You're missing the point, it doesn't really matter why it was out of stock. What the chink said might have been true, or it might not have been (though I don't really see why they'd lie about it). Only thing that matters is when the phone is coming back in stock. "At the beginning of the next month" is what the chink said weeks ago, which obviously was true if you have a look at Geekbuying's or Honorbuy's listing:

Just find root on online and if there is you just have to follow the steps the forum provides you. It would say that you would need to use Odin (since it's a Samsung device) and just install the twrp file and once that's done boot in to twrp and flash the root zip.

I'm looking for an AT&T phone (unlocked of course) for around $200 max, with:

>pretty much any performance, though I'd like it to run nougat ideally
>4G bands, 5Ghz wifi, no need for AC
>biggest battery possible given these constraints
>mSD would be a bonus

I'm still pretty happy with my Redmi 3, except for its incomplete band support on both AT&T and T-Mobile. When I got it, I just thought "I don't really need 4G" but it seems there's more missing bands, leading to strange coverage issues. After switching from T-Mobile (US Mobile) to AT&T (Cricket) it's better, but still not great.
So, while I don't strictly need a new phone, perhaps /spg/ can tempt me?

Android fag here.

I've been using a Galaxy S6 since july 2015.

I always wanted to try an iPhone mainly because i like the color.

The thing is that, i know iPhones are specs wise weaker, OS is restrictive and you can't do dumb things like installing a japanese app by just downloading the japanese app instead you have to use a japanese account and shit.


Now, I don't want to wait for the iPhone 8 so ... will the 7 hold up for a year or 2 performance wise?

thats great and all but why has nobody told me how is the performance.

Will it be decent phone in 2 years time? apps get heavier and require more ram.

Can a 2 year old iPhone 7 hold up in 2019?
>>
>>61176702
It's not a good choice if you want a phone with a headphone jack though
>>
>>61176769

iPhones hold up well for 2 years, without issue.
>>
>>61176795
>>61176769

They should hold up fine in 2 years. Just be aware that for old phones it is not possible to tell if the battery is weak because the OS has gotten heavier with bad battery because the battery has lost it ability to hold charge.

So buying an iPhone 7 now it should be good for 1 year.

What the fuck. I'm comparing Xperia z1 compact and Samsung galaxy j3(amoled meme).
Difference of black is like night and day. Where Sony has 100% black areas, in Samsung I can still see details. Generally Samsung is more bright but black sucks. When comparing white Sony is cold and Samsung is yellow.
What the hell I'm supposed to think about all that?

What's the best low-cost smartphone from 100€ to 125€? I'm planning to buy Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, should I go for it or I will get memed and searchfor better alternatives? I mainly use phone for basic stuff (Whatsapp, Viber, Jewbook messenger, etc.) and rarely play 3d games.

Sorry for long link. Holy shitsnacks. Samsung fuck sony in the ass in that test pic. Green+blue field looks totally different. Sony is bleak there and Samsung is nicely distinguished. But then in "real" photographs Sony gives more saturated red and surprisingly better black, even though it shouldn't. It's like Samsung displays dark more brightly than it should.
It looks like Sony is more about white/black in photos, and that looks better than Samsung which tries to show all the bright colours.
Maybe I've got so weird outcomes because I'm not using exact same photo viewer program on both phones.

I've got a z3 compact, and I've hated the gallery app since I got it. Is there any way of putting the default google gallery app on it? I can access gallery from file selections, such as choosing a pic to post on clover, but I can only seem to get either only the sony app, or google photos, and they're both terrible.
I figure over downloading a 3rd party app would at least make it a bit more comfy.

How would the Moto g5 compare to my galaxy s4?
In case you don't know the CPU of the s4 is roughly equal to that of the moto g4 and I imagine it may have a better camera than the g4.
The galaxy s4 also has micro sd and removable battery.
I'm looking for more performance, the ability to flash the latest versions of android at my leisure, the ability to use OTG dacs with out having to use USB Audio Player Pro, MicroSD is mandatory, and I am open to other phones besides the g5.
I'm in the US but I only use my phone on wifi so it doesn't even matter bands wise.

Is the regular G5 even available in the US? I thought that you guys only got the G5+

/spg/ I'm looking for a new phone. I have a iphone 6 now and want to get something that is stock android or as close to it as possible. Oneplus was on my short list, but they shit the bed with 5 and I don't know where to start.
All I need is a good camera that at least meets what I have now and decent build quality (a finger print reader would be nice). I don't give a crap about screen resolution so a good 1080p suits me fine.

I'm probably just going to end up getting the Redmi Note 4 Global, but I figured I'd ask first
The price, performance and battery are all basically ideal, but I'd really rather have a 5" screen and the fingerprint scanner/home button thing on the front.
It doesn't look like that actually exists anyway, the Zuk Z2 was closest but it seems like they've stopped making it so the only places that still seem to be selling it are random sketchy sites, the price is going up and they usually only have the ugly white one anyway. I'm not in a particular hurry though, if something better is going to be coming out somewhat soon I can wait. Anything I should keep an eye on?
Budget is a pretty flexible ~200CAD

I can't decide between the moto g5 + and the redmi note 4x. They're similar but the redmi note 4x has a bigger battery.
The only problem is that cancerous rom.
I'd prefer AOSP rather than that cancer.
I mean I never tried it, but I prefer AOSP and then customizing stuff with nova myself.
Is it worth to unlock the bootloader, looking for an AOSP mod and stuff or should I just get the moto g5 +?
Do you own either? Which does it satisfy you more?
>>
>>61183265
Performance wise it's hard to compare, but for sure camera and screen are better on the S8. Build quality is great on both, but they're both easy to damage in case of accidental drops. Feature wise, S8 is better, however if you're already in Apple's walled garden, then you may want to buy an iPhone regardless.

A phone shop in my area is going bust and there are massive discounts. I can get the S8 (the larger version) for 470€ or an iphone 6s+ (64gig) for 380€.

I use my phones mostly for writing lots of notes, emails, scanning docs with the camera, finishing docs on the go and as a music player.

There's four different versions of the phone
Redmi Note 4, with a Mediatek Helio X20 processor

Redmi Note 4, with a Snapdragon 625 processor (only sold in India so disregard this one)
Redmi Note 4X, with a Snapdragon 625 processor
Redmi Note 4 Global, also with a Snapdragon 625 processor

It is recommended to get one of the Snapdragon versions. The only difference between them is the network bands, you'll most likely want to get the 4 Global as it's the only version with band 4 (commonly used in the Americas) and band 20 LTE (used almost everywhere in Europe).

Unless you find a good deal on the G5, go for Redmi Note 4X. Unlocking a bootloader is piss easy and there are plenty ROMs on XDA. I recommend PAC-ROM, Pure Nexus or Resurrection Remix.

What should i get for around 320$?

How high are the chances that the nokia 7 will be a 5 inch phone instead if one of those fuckhuge 5.5 inch phones?
>>

If it's a defective unit you can get a replacement. Google iphone 6s battery replacement program.
>>
Friendly reminder that the people you'll see most often with high end phones are poor fags who had to finance the thing over two years.
Real gangstas actually own their hardware.

>>61184295
Trust me I've done all of that. I booked an appointment to the "genius" bar thinking I would get a free replacement but they expected me to pay $80 so I told them to fuck right off

The best iPhone you can get for that budget.

Come on even shitty android phones do more than that, that's ridiculous.

>>61184326
There's been times where I leave the house at 100%, and I have my earbuds in listening to music, and after 20 minutes it was already down to 60%.

Meanwhile my S4 would be at 93%.

I still use an S4 daily and it's a very good phone but I wish I had the ability to unlock the bootloader because it has software issues. It wakelocks some times and I have very minimal amount of software installed on it. There is something wrong with whatever chain of software handles the camera and it causes pictures to be incredibly grainy.
I love the device and I got it for $99 new but I'm thinking about replacing it with a chink Snapdragon 820 phone or maybe something like a moto G.

So protip here guys, do not ever buy a phone with a locked bootloader. You want the ability to put the newest versions of android on it yourself and to also be able to fix problems that the OEM has deemed unimportant. It will greatly extend the life of your device.

It will only ship next week, sorry.
From what I've read the battery life is solid.

I just woke up and suddenly the vibration on my OP3T is completely gone. Ive tried every option in settings and nothing brings it back, even when I slide the vibration strength slider the phone won't vibrate at all. Is it worth trying to do a full wipe or is it likely that the motor is just dead? I'm on stock OOS, not rooted.

>they finally fix Touchwizz which was utter shit since forever
>Fix

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHH good one. The only fix they have done is change what it looks like. Still, people are reporting it's lagging.

>>61176867
Why would you buy it now? Next iPhone is coming in 3 months
>>
>parents get Huawei P10 and Galaxy S7, waiting for nanosims so I play around with them
>ridiculous amount of lag, especially when pulling down the notification center and scrolling big websites

I really didn't expect this out of Android in 2017.

>inb4 b-b-b-but muh custom roms
>>
I've been looking into buying either Lenovo P2 or Moto G5+.
I like the P2 better overall but people keep complaining about the camera.
The G5+ has a better camera ( but it sticks out weirdly ) and it's splash-proof, which is better for my job and it's cheaper.

Which one do you recommend?
Does anyone of you know where I can find one of them for the best price? I'm in Germany.
>>
>>61176962
Their A10 Chip is better than a FapDragon 835. In real life tests. A10 is a year old while 835 was released in the Q2 this year.

How good lineageos can we expect the Nokia 6 to get?
>>
>>61185452
Why would you be worried about lineageos when the stock ROM is going to be pretty much stock Android?
>>
>>61185450
I understand. Get the jet black 256GB Plus model. Die rich

What is the best rom for oneplus 3t?
>>
>>61185515
SultanXDA's LineageOS ROM
>>
>>61185575
Currently on it. What about ressurection remix?
>>
>>61185600
Also fine. There isn't really a "best rom", they all have different features

>>61185515
One of the few instances where the correct answer is stock

Holy shit, that has the same specs as a G5+ but less costly. Is this the best chinkphone out there for the price?

Do Nokia even plan to release a true midrange phone?

The Nokia 6 is a little on the weak side but built like a tank, it isn't even out in the UK yet and the rumours of the Nokia 9 are that its going to be an expensive beast. There doesn't seem to be an inbetween unless there's something I'm unaware of.

The build quality is the main thing that has me interested in the 6 since fewer and fewer phones have metal cases now. I don't think I could ever own a phone with a glass back, its fucking stupid and wireless charging is also a stupid feature. The charger is still connected to the mains so you might as well just plug your phone in, it takes 2 seconds and you're affecting the build quality of your phone because you're a lazy fuck

Yes, Nokia 7 and 8

My redmi note 3 has been great since I bought it last year
I get 6 hours of SOT with an AOSP 7.1.2 rom.

My question is, will this thing last?
Do chink phones live longer than like 2 years?
I want to keep this for at least 3 more years.
>>
>>61186023
They both come with nougat
They both have the sd625
They both have 5.2" 1080P screens
Idol 5S have usb c, Moto doesn't
Idol 5s has 3GB RAM at 199.99
G5+ has 2GB RAM at 184.99
Idol 5S has a rear fingerprint sensor and camera has image stabilization, G5+ has front fingerprint sensor and not stabilization
Idol 5s is near stock Android, same as G5+
Only thing G5+ has over Idol 5s is possibly updates
>>
>>61186185
No nice brand name. No warranty (but you probably can buy it in your country for ~30% more and get seller's warranty). Probably worse camera if it's important to you. [Cheap-ish good camera phone is Nokia 6 (camera comparable with apple's flagship, I didn't check other comparisons)]
