I'm using currently Samsung Note 3 with latest rom. Well its good but my lcd is cracked also i have 2 green vertical lines and camera sucks.
I'm looking for upgrade i have about $300 for used phone. I want my next phone to have super camera and good overall performance and big screen. Pixel 2 XL is one option but screen worries me, 9t pro is super but camera is worse than one in pixel is there any other option ?
I'm due for a new phone soon - currently rocking the iPhone XS with a cracked screen - and am strongly considering the move back to Android. I'm not impressed with what I'm getting for the price with the iPhone any longer. I was looking at the OnePlus 7/7T, but, of course, it appears the 8 may be imminent. I had the original OnePlus One and loved it at the time.
Looking for the $500-700 range, give or take. Primary concerns are speed and reliability, followed by the screen, then the camera. I don't do a lot of mobile photography so the camera is a lower concern. Speed and reliable hardware/build are much more a concern of mine, but I'm not sure those a really valid concerns at this point. Default OS is also negotiable, I don't mind throwing a different ROM on there. Some sort of water proofing/resistance and wireless charging would be nice but aren't requirement. I'm in the US, currently with AT&T.
I think the OnePlus 7 or 7T are my best bet for the money. Any other suggestions I should be looking into? Is there any compelling reason to wait for the OnePlus 8? Someone recommended the Mi 9T or Realme X2 too. Thoughts?
Wait, you don't mind that?
Having bloatware and ads in foreign language being intrusively pre-installed on your phone? I thought companies stopped doing this... 😅
I think that's pretty appalling to do by the manufacturer. Something tells me that Xiaomi will also be banned from installing Google Apps soon, just like Huawei was. So it's best to avoid buying anything Chinese for the nearest future.
Save money and buy an older Pixel XL or something. I promise you'll thank me later.
Well, I find somewhat intrusive ads a better alternative to inflated high prices for smartphones from other companies. Paying beyond 400€ for a smartphone is outrageous. Xiaomi does deliver very good phones for real value. Given you re most likely to keep using that phone for more than a few months, the company has to inflate those prices or show advertisements.
If such predicament happens in near future, we don't know. It does not matter. Instead of going with a disappointing old flagship today, I suggest you guys get a new mid-range phone from xiaomi. Doubt Xiaomi is gonna be banned in any near future.
I'm in the market to replace my Samsung Galaxy S9+. While a root method was recently found for it and the S9, it leaves a lot to be desired (and breaks a lot of things). For my next phone, I'm looking for one that's super-friendly in regards to rooting and custom recovery (e.g. TWRP) and ROMs. I'm stuck with T-Mobile (US) for now, though, and the selection in-store seems slim, at least as far as phones meeting that criteria -- my best options there seem to be the OnePlus 7T, OnePlus 7T Pro Maclaren, or the Pixel 4XL, but none of those are exactly what I'm looking for: The OnePlus models, while I can get them in 256gb flavors despite the lack of expandable storage, but it looks like TWRP support remains unofficial for now? The Pixel 4XL seems like it'd be super friendly, but it has no expandable storage and the maximum available is 128gb, and I actively use the phone for a huge variety of personal, work, and media tasks, and 128gb won't cut it (and I don't want an OTG drive sticking out of the USB port, unless someone can recommend a super slim one > 256gb with power passthrough).
While I would like an obscene powerhouse of a device (say, an Asus ROG 2 with all the fixin's), practicality is the real motivator here. I don't mind if the phone is a gen or two back -- something from the same timeframe as the Galaxy S8/Note 8 up to now would be good. Or this upcoming generation, if you know something I don't. Definitely need >= 256gb storage, ideally with an sd card expansion. Dual SIMs would be nice, but not necessary. Ability to pay on installment (carrier, manufacturer, reseller, depressing mall kiosk, whatever) would also be nice, but is also not necessary. Most of all, I want to be able to install TWRP, systemless Magisk (with successful SafetyNet bypasses), and a variety of mods and ROMs (which itself requires an active community).
Anyone have any recommendations? Any questions or things I need to further clarify? Any online tools that can help me pick by selectecting and prioriizing requirements.
