I'm looking for a new tablet with the following specs:
  • 7-10"
  • Android 7+
  • 16GB+ ROM
  • 2GB+ RAM
  • long battery life
  • don't care for camera
  • don't care for mobile

If there was a light version of Xiaomi Mi Tab 4 I would probably buy it, but the normal is just too expansive. I'm willing to pay as much as 100$ (tax excluded). Could be a chinese no-name as well if you made good experiences.

Would be nice if there was any supported mod, but I guess there is none.

If you liked the pixel 2xl...can't go wrong with 3xl IMO... I went from 2xl to 3 xl and am very happy.

If not, the I would say Note 9 from that list.

Main thing is lack of custom recovery, roms, and xposed (stock samsung sucks and xposed causes phone to soft brick) as well as small screen size. i never used the pen so dont care about that or nfc

Edit: I am with metro pcs so i can go with t-mobile or metro phone as long as it has unlocked bootloader and custom recovery/roms.

Budget Smartphone for fromt-cam indoor video recording
I want to buy an affordable android smartphone that records acceptable video from the front cam (the "selfie" cam)
The recording will mostly take place indoors on a tripod (talking and music technique recording, but audio quality isn't much of an issue here)
These are the ones in my list at the moment:

Sony xperia XA2 Ultra
Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite
Nokia 7 plus
Samsung Galaxy A50
Huawei Mate 20 Lite

Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!

Umidigi F1 or Umidigi F1 Play. Both on sale now.
F1 is sub $200 with 128GB storage, Android 9, plus awesome speed.

I have the F1 and settled on it after looking at all the junk sub $200. This one has great reviews. Check YouTube.

Very happy with the phone. Can be rooted and modified.

Hello all.
I'm looking for some guidance. I currently have a Motorola "Moto Z2 Force". I've had it for about a year now, but the screen is starting to go out.
My past phones have been HTC, up to the HTC 10.

Here's a list of what I'm looking for:
newer than Snapdragon 835 (as my current phone is an 835)
Rootable/custom ROMs
physical dimensions: not taller than 6.25", (I like to keep my phone in my shirt pocket)
expandable memory
no curved glass (I'll want to put a screen protector on it)
T-mobile compatible

That's all i can think of at the moment. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

thank you,
mai0f
