I'm not stuck on the removable battery part, though I do like the option to remove it if I want the phone off and not fake off.

Hello there,

I'm looking for a tablet to use gps services on my car, but also fast enough to do not annoy me switching apps for example, do you have any suggestion of tablet to check? I saw the Samsung A7 Lite but it's only 32GB its too little i'm wondering if there's some alternative Chinese tablet that is better and trustable?

I have been seeing ALLDOCUBE iPlay20 Pro, Teclast p20hd 10.1 and Bmax maxpad i10, but i dont know how trustable or durable these devices are, anyone that have any of these chinese tablets know if they are worth it?

Any good alternative suggested? Like any other brand or model from aliexpress or not that i could check out?

Thanks in advance.

Xiaomi mi 11 pro vs ultra vs Oneplus 9 pro? vs?


I'm in the market for a new phone as a successor for my s9+.

And I need your experience/opinion! (thanks in advance).

Important for me:

Good big screen Good camera (for photos of child growing up) Power, heavy multitasking User Longevity, regarding updates and custom ROMs after
No Exynos (I live in Germany) Waterproof Longevity, regarding updates and custom ROMs after manufacturer updates end

What got my eye Xiaomi mi 11 pro ~ 600€ Xiaomi mi 11 ultra ~800€ OnePlus 9 pro ~ 880€ OnePlus 10 pro ~ 1000€ Xiaomi mi 12 pro ~1150€ way too expensive :)

Did I oversee a phone? Which would you choose?

Thanks a lot for your help!
Just got a Samsung M32 so not thinking about a replacement immediately. Basically, the replacement part for me depends on what I want from my Smartphone. Over the years, have noted that phones do not last more than 1-2 years. With newer models coming in almost daily, think I will next go for a Samsung model, which is water-resistant and able to handle some damage due to rough use. Getting on in years and not as alert as I used to be.

Hi All ,
I'm looking for Tablet , nothing fancy since my price range is around 250Euro/300Dolars
From what I can see all China tablets with T618 are quiet good
Also Samsung TAB A8 2022(also T618) and S6 lite are good options and these ones have Widevine L1
Xiaoxin Pad 11 looks also nice but this is one would be china version with snap 662 and Rom options seems to be limited
XIaoxin Pad Pro 11,5 cost a little more than I would like to spend but if it worth I would go for it , also chines version with snap 730 and Roms options are limited
Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 is pricy but seems to be best option for the money
My question really is :
Is is worth to spend 2x for Xiaomi/Xiaoxin/Lenovo P11 than on T619 tablet
My use case is : youtube , hearthstone from time to time and books , netflix once a blue moon
Thank you for every input :)

Wife and I desperately need a new phones (s9+ with dying Battery), we waited for the 22 ultra to be the new one.

.. But 1500€ for a, in my opinion ugly and overpriced phone can't be the right thing for us.

Second, unfortunately we live in Exynos Region, (Germany), this was never as good as the Snapdragon soc (except bootloader)

After 12 years of Android, I never thought I would even think about, I consider buying an iPhone.

Any suggestions what to buy?
If you want to stick with samsung but don't want exynos go Fold 3. They were only snapdragon. I have had one since launch and absolutely love it.

Hello. I am looking for a 5G smartphone, equipped with a microSD reader, and having an integrated FM radio, with RDS support.
Or a possibility, with the same characteristics, of replacing the ROM with one equipped with this RDS radio function.
Thank you in advance.
