    Pixel 4

    People are mostly followers. Google thought they could be like Apple and only sell phones through one carrier. Unfortunately, when Apple did that, that was the early days of smartphones. Now that smartphones are everywhere, not many would buy Pixels because they hardly see anyone else carrying a...

    Do people here remove the tab on a phone case that guards the headphone jack?

    What is your phone’s IP rating? Clearly if a phone case has a headphone port blocked, it’s likely a water resistant case. I would just like to point out that an ip68 phone with an ip68 case is still just ip68 rated... that’s all. If the case has a stronger rating, then why the heck do you have...

    Best camera phone 200-400 EUR?

    I had a caller id phone app and that choked on the S9. Uninstalled it and it still choked. Pretty sure it’s touchwiz not prioritizing the phone app ahead of whatever bullshit it wants to run in the background.

    Best camera phone 200-400 EUR?

    I had a S9... and I will not recommend it or any Samsung phones until I hear that Samsung TouchWiz or whatever it’s current rebranded incarnation isn’t going choke doing simple stuff like answering a phone call for at least 2 years. Unfortunately, I’ve seen evidence that the s10 still sucked at...

    XIAOMI MINOTE10PRO vs HUAWEI MATE30 vs NOKIA 808 vs PANASONIC CM1 vs SONY RX0II vs RICOH GRIII

    First, in fairness, there are plenty of reviews out there for smartphone cameras. Your review is one of the few that goes in depth into zooming in deep into photos, which is not something most people take photos for. So I thank you for your contribution into a very niche space. I’m just not one...

    Is a smartwatch a decent option for Medical Care Alerts for Seniors?

    I strongly suggest that you stick with a medical alert company than going through an Apple Watch LTE without an iPhone. first, the watch is not made to be an medical alert alternative. second, the watch could be set up with call 911 directly. How you set it up without an iPhone or iPad is...

    Reliable phones that don't bootloop, have a good DAC and a headphones jack..

    Essential Phone with the audio attachment, if you can still find them, depending on your carrier also look into the Razer Phone 2. Sure, you have to use a dongle. But supposedly that Dolby Atmos and stuff is fantastic and recommended by audiophile forums/guides.

    OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro

    I’m not saying he’s wrong, just incomplete... or missing something. MVP is the Most Valuable Phone. I would much rather spend $50 more on an iPhone over this OP7P if we’re talking about value. But it’s not even on his table...

    OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro

    The regular cheap version of the iPhone 11 isn’t even being considered. Sure, if he’s only going to use the best model of the phone, okay, that list is great! But completely ignoring that a flagship iPhone exists at under $700 or $50 more than the original price of his MVP device makes that list...

    Next Generation Battery Tech Finally Arrives 2020?

    Unfortunately this rumor/mistake from Huawei is most likely false. It is impossible for current technology to mass produce these graphene batteries; best case scenario is that we’re still 1 year away. Unless Huawei has been developing something in secret, it is most likely a mistake from Huawei...

    Next Generation Battery Tech Finally Arrives 2020?

    If Huawei will be bringing the graphene, I’ll have to assume others will too. Apple traditionally will not have any first generation part though.

    Next Generation Battery Tech Finally Arrives 2020?

    Huawei’s P40 Pro is about to launch with 5500 mAh of graphene batteries, charging from 0 to 100% in 45 minutes. So not only will we get a more pocketable phone from Motorola and other copycats like Samsung, we’ll finally be getting new batteries. 2020 is going to be a good year.

    WiFi boosters/extenders?

    In the existence of wireless gateways, there has only been one that’s any good. The odds are that you don’t have a good one. Buy your own modem and wireless router.

This is probably the biggest design influence device of the decade. other mentions: Pixel...

    Sprint Magic Box: Kill it with fire?

    Back in the day I was talking with some Sprint engineers at a Sprint conference. I asked why does the data count against me if I had this in the office or my house? These were days before unlimited data was really an affordable thing. They instead hooked me up with the employee plan that a lot...

    pixel 4xl $200 off google or $400 off verizon?

    Definitely the right time to get a Pixel if you are to get one. I would dump Verizon for T-Mobile though and get free iPhone 11’s just for joining.

    Middle range phone upgrade advice

    Get the iPhone XR. I had the XR before I jumped onto the iPhone 11. While I would say that everything is noticeably faster on the 11, the XR still beats all the current android flagship in terms of performance.

    Pixel 4 or OnePlus 7 Pro?

    There are enough reviews out there to suggest that the OnePlus 7 Pro/7T has one of the best rear cameras out there. DxOMark even said the OnePlus is better than Google this year. Pixel 4 camera is rather disappointing though still really good. The OnePlus front facing camera sucks though. Quite...

    Question about the Pixel, Gmail, and Functionality

    Google tied its 2 factor authentication to gmail app. So if you have 2fa turned on but don’t use the gmail app, you’ll have to press additional buttons to enter in the 6 digit code from your authenticator app. It used to be the Google search app and I wish that it still was.

    Pixel 4

    i have seen a few water tests. The OnePlus 7 Pro fails that very quickly. So definitely don’t take it swimming. https://www.cnet.com/news/oneplus-7-pro-t-mobile-how-waterproof-is-it-really-ip-rating-resistant/ 30 minutes in tank 8 minutes in the pool

    Pixel 4 or OnePlus 7 Pro?

    There are many drop test videos you could watch. OnePlus hardly survives any drops. It’s also not very water resistant. All other flagships fair better but almost none ever gets updated. Pixel 4 may be supported for 2 years but, with the corners cut, it will be obsolete faster than any flagship...

    I just saw you want your phone to be durable without a case. OnePlus ain’t it... lol seriously consider the iPhone or a case!!!

    Pixel 4 or OnePlus 7 Pro?

    current prices: OnePlus 7 Pro $549 OnePlus 7T $599 iPhone 11 $699 (baseline) Pixel 4 $799 (avoid - planned obsolescence galore) for a phone to last 4 years, I strongly recommend you to consider the iPhone 11. If not, choose OnePlus 7 Pro/7T.

    Pretty sure it doesn’t cost google anywhere near as much as it costs us. Google also could tell me exactly how much money they made off selling my data... but that’s hardly worth sweating for Google

    Pixel 4

    Google needs to release a Pixel 4X or something as soon as possible thicker with bigger batteries, WiFi 6, and inclusion of free original size cloud storage. If google could add a better camera sensor or ultra-wide, that would also be plus. But bigger batteries, WiFi 6, and the free storage...

    Motorola Razr

    One thing I wish Motorola would change on the next version is they should flip the position of the screen and the camera. Camera needs to be above the screen for selfies, and the camera position would be in the center of the phone when opened like most point and shoots.

    Motorola Razr

    I don’t know why everyone else is going for a phablet/tablet instead of a small pocket phone/smartphone combination. Especially since android hardly have any tablet sized apps, I don’t know what these manufacturers are thinking. I could see Apple pulling off a phablet/tablet because they have...

    Motorola Razr

    It’s time to recognize that this is easily the most exciting phone for a long while... too bad Motorola will ruin it with carrier exclusivity along with high price for a outdated android system with an outdated chipset. Hopefully we’ll get more form factor such as this so our phones will be more...
