Hello, I'm trying to decide between a few phones, and one comparison I've been looking at but haven't found much info on is the network connectivity. The following screenshots compare the Moto Z Play, Pixel XL, and OnePlus 3T. The OnePlus 3T has significantly less LTE FDD bands, for example, and I'm not sure if this is going to negatively affect me in the US on GSM (specifically the Ting network)?

(First image is to show the order of the compared devices in the second image)

Are the differences in cell radios going to be noticeable on the Ting network (so no roaming capability) in the US, Pacific northwest area?

Thank you!

I'm very happy with it, compared to my Zuk Z1...
The camera is good also in low light. So for the price you get very much. But it depends what version you buy in your country! There are price differences and also different specs.

Honor 8 or HTC 10 ?
Currently I am looking at narrowing down 2 phones that I want to buy in the next few days.

Here are my wants:
SD micro
Future proof
custom roms

Honor 8.
Seems like a good phone, but now the main concern is development and future proofing (such as the 128 SD limit)
HTC 10
Good phone but wondering if the cost is worth it over the Honor 8, and concerned about low light camera.

Thanks for suggestions and help getting me looking at the right path of needs and wants.
I got an Honor 8 coming in a few days.

Nvidia Shield K1 vs Hwuawei MediaPad M3
Which one of the tablets should I buy? Originally I wanted a Z3 tablet compact but for $400 less is a little too pricey.
I was going to get a ZenPad S8.0 but there isn't any official support for it here.
I know both are root-able but the shield k1 does have custom roms available for it.
The M3 lacks custom roms due to just being release in the U.S
I don't mind spending the extra money for the extra ram, screen size, better ppi but is all of that worth it?

Tablet as phone.
I've been going back and forth on my next device. I've been looking at some of the 7+" phablet offerings from overseas. I don't think I'm going to go that direction, though. I've recently started investigating using a 7 - 9 inch 4g tablet as a phone. I think I like this option better.

I'm looking for device suggestions. Something fairly powerful for regular phone tasks and games, including some portable game system emulation. I'm not totally opposed to an international device, but it's GOT TO have 4g in the USA. I'm looking for plan options, too. I currently have unlimited data through Sprint and my largest data consuming app is Google music. It should go without saying that solid XDA support of this device would be preferred...

Finally, I'm looking for caveats. Things I haven't thought about that might throw a kink in my plan.

Thanks all for any input on this one. I'm hoping to find the perfect solution within the month to make a purchase by Christmas (unless it's worth waiting a bit for a tablet on the horizon).

Hey guys.
Looking for China phone for price 85$ tops and it would be best if it could be bought from GB.
Should be for gf, because her HTC Desire 3xx died few days ago. She had my old THL W100 which was really good hope her but she managed to break the glass.
She's not a advanced user so there is just few thing she need to work:

- SD card plugability
- Saving apps on SD
- Working GPS
- 3G minimum
- 1024MB ram

There is a lot of phones with this range but really lot and there is just really few reviews. Mostly none. So it's hard to choose right.
I know brands like THL, Cubot and Zopo are mostly alright and within range, but still; don't want to choose a bad one.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks guys.

Given the choice between an almost-new Moto G4 Plus or a very gently used OnePlus 2 (for about $50 more), which would you choose?
The most important features for me are camera image quality, battery life, and reliability / support (software updates).
