Thanks, I saw someone mention the oneplus 5t so looked it up on ebay they are going used for like £10-20 more than the P3A, know anything about that? might wait until I see a lower one or one with offers and offer less etc.
Just be careful. Lots of scamming and misrepresentation going on. That's one reason I paid extra for a new N10+ 9 months ago.
What are you talking about?
I see you have a degree in CRT
That explains the problem.
So the answer is there's is no direct connection. Parroting the link I already provided is pointless.I see you have a degree in CRT
How can you sit there and say
How is Microsoft related in any way?
I blame the parents

Mid range Samsung's have them but that's fked up... I use the Buds+ and using the SSC codec and Poweramp they sound pretty good. Really long battery life.
OP gets good reviews and seem to have good displays but I've only briefly looked at current ones. Don't go too retro. Aim for 12gb of ram, Android 9 or 10.I'm basically looking for equivelant-or-better than a P3A, which will cost me like £80~ on ebay for a used one. It seems to be a couple years older, but the OnePlus 5T https://www.gadgetsnow.com/compare-mobile-phones/Google-Pixel-3A-vs-OnePlus-5T seems to be the way to go? roughly £60-90 ebay used in good condition.
Can get another pixel 3a for the same price.. but the 5T is better right? I don't follow modern phone stuff at all so no idea what is 'good' now, I'm just buying used anyway.
All AMOLED displays have a finite lifespan. The higher energy blue pixels tend to go first, reds last. How high the brightness and for how long has a direct bearing on lifespan.I tried out Lineage18, the g5 was an absolute slug. Probably because it only has 2gb of RAM. Way better sticking with Nougat/Oreo vintage roms. Even on LOS14 I find the odd time I do use it for typical smartphone crap (web browsing, etc) it still is pretty ponderous. I also keep kicking myself in the ass for not noticing there was no compass either. Based on that alone I would've bought something else.
The Pixels do seem to check all of the boxes, feature wise, and I keep reading recommendations about buying older flagship models. I just haven't done much digging into the Pixel lineup until now and have no idea how much older is a safe bet.
I also have looked at some of the older Oneplus models, but it seems like they're prone to screen issues - most of the ones I've seen for sale mention screen burn
Good advice. Most likely I'd end up buying through Amazon.ca. They seem to have a decent refurb. policy, and of course are great for returns.All AMOLED displays have a finite lifespan.

This N10+ has been heavily used for 2.5 years and has gone through one battery, soon the second one as well. Yet the display is still perfect.
I almost never use in direct sunlight and rarely go above 50% brightness, I manual brightness only except very rarely. I also use dark mode and wallpapers. Minimized red icon pack.
Problem is with used devices all you can do is use ScreenTest to look for damage or age related wear. This should be done even with new displays. One of the first things I test. For a higher price unsold older factory sealed new phones from 2020 can be had. My second N10+ was one of these. The benefits are obvious but they are almost double the price of a used one.
Regardless always buy from a trusted vendor, best to talk with them first. There's a lot of scamming going on... always use a Visa or MC to buy it with so you can do a charge back if needed.
