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).

Hi All,

Looking at buying an Xperia XA for the Mrs, not quite sure yet though...

Anything similar price wise, that might be a better option?
Good camera is the main thing she wants.

Thanks!

Have a look at Xiaomi.
The Xiaomi Mi5 or the newer one Mi5s should be in the Xperia price range

Hi everyone, good afternoon. I want to replace my Moto X2 (2014) smartphone, with a newer one .

Here is the list of items I need with a new phone:

- Android Stock or closer . Or with a interface lag free.
- Android 6.0.1 and with updates to 7 or 8.
- 3.5 mm jack to headphones.
- SD slot
- 32/64 gb internal storage
- Wifi Suport AC (5 Ghz)
- 2 Speakers or a good sound volume.
- A very good camera. Moto X2 is a poor camera. Focus problems.
- Battery >= 3000 mAh.
- 4G / LTE Support.

My options are:
- Moto X Pure Edition (2015)
- Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (or only S7 ??)
- Any other?

Thanks.

PD: Sorry for my english, I'm from Per. I speak Spanish.

Thanks for the suggestion... i'd never really considered a Xiaomi before... I'm in the UK, so not sure who to trust when buying one

I'm not sure it'd be the best phone for my wife but I was looking at getting a Nexus 5x for me but this looks tempting.. especially at the same price as 5x.

This thread will be very useful. As we will come to know more about different devices and also will help the people who need guidance about new devices

Kind of ashamed since my not-as-bad-as-this phone broke, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1188486 - ALL HAIL X8!

I desperately need a new one, i'm just worried about getting it with a nice ROM & problems that might arise since the phone seems so cheap.

Yet, there are many posts that go unaddressed.
