Hard choice
Hi guys,
My LG G6 is... well i need a new phone! My first idea is of course the MI9TPRO, which i could find around 330€

But then i've seen that the LG g8s would cost like 30€ more. They both have a nice snapdragon 855, i was thinking that the LG
being a bit "flagshippy" could have a bit better overall build quality and is waterproof (but battery is bit smaller).

Now... it's hard for me. I still hate LG since Nexus 5x, i had it and got the infamous bootloop and they refused to repair it back then.
I switched then to LG g6 only because at the moment back then it was a good choice for my budget.
and now... look again like that? or should i go with xiaomi this time?

i need to decide before christmas.
I hope to hear some advice from you, thanks in advance

Have asked a while ago but at that time my phone was working without any issues. But last week it fell down from very height, now it's usable but to replace it's parts it cost a bit lot.

So now planning to buy a new one. My requirements are:

- price around $350 (₹25,000)
- new or last year released one (pre owned)
- should have enough stable custom ROM support
- won't mind if it has notch
- AMOLED screen (haven't used any, that's why)

I also want to know which phone or band is most popular among custom ROM developers?

I had an s6 over 2 years ago and a custom rom based on TouchWiz did wonders for it. It ran faster, had better features and was very stable. It changed my opinion on Samsung. Unfortunately the Canadian variant of the s8 I had after the s6 was completely unrootable so I switched to phones that didn't need rooting or custom roms (OnePlus 5 and pixel XL) but could easily be unlocked when support ends and custom roms are the only option.

Try the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro. Seems quite promising. Or if you want even more features, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro launches this December with some interesting specs.

Thanks for the reply. But I couldn't find any custom ROM for Note 8 Pro and I also doubt the Note 10 Pro. What about 6T now? Is it a good or bad choice?

Mate, the Note 8 Pro is praised a lot on youtube. Some even call it the best phone of the year. Of course it doesnt have a custom rom yet, the phone has barely been 2 months out. What do you expect ? Two months and it already has twrp and root guides. I can bet there are gonna be some roms surely in February at least. Xiaomi has a nice relationship with developers after all.

Even the Oneplus 6T, launched in october 2018, had the first roms in december 2018 - january 2019.

Sorry mate, I thought Note 8 was released a long ago. I bought one Note 7 Pro very long ago and at that time I read some news on 8 Pro, so I thought 8 Pro is an old one. I just checked the Note 7 Pro's ROMs thread and found too many official ROM releases. That's a great.

I just read the features of Note 8 Pro and it is a very impressive phone. But two things I dislike is that the processor is MediaTek (why they choose this one instead of 730 or something?) and the display is IPS, not an AMOLED.
