  1. Hey y’all! I’m looking to upgrade off of a base model Pixel 1, which is starting to go in the battery department. The 32gb storage is also really starting to pull out my hair…

    I’ve done some reading and research, and have settled towards the Galaxy S10 or S10e, but just can’t seem to pull the trigger on either of them. Any advice?

    My biggest hesitation is around finding the phone which has the best value for it’s price. Top concerns for both of these are: Is Samsung Care worth it for the price per month? With the SD storage, should I bother with getting more than 128? Will there be some large sale on them in the next month, as newer phones drop?

    Between the two phones, I’m most concerned with which one has the better value. Is the extra camera, RAM, and fingerprint upgrades really meaningful, to justify the 10 over the 10e? Since they pretty much have the same form factor, I don’t seem much visual difference between them.

    I opted to not go with the Pixel 3 because it feels cheaper in build quality to my current Pixel. Not many upgrades for a hefty price point. A plasticy power button, you know?

    Things that are important to me in a phone:
    *Quick, powerful, quality camera. This is a hugely important part of my life, and I need something tat opens quickly and takes a great shot.
    *Long lasting battery. I have long days and don’t want to be thinking about a charger when I’m at hour 8 with only mild use.
    *storage! Definitely overreacting after years in 32gb, but I don’t want this to be a question mark.

    Thanks for any help you can provide!!

  2. My friend works in construction and is tired from breaking phones. He’s looking for a phone that’s a little tougher. I know about phones from Ulefone, Sonim, and Caterpillar. Kyocera is dead in the water afaik. Considering their price, is a Pocophone in a case worth considering? I know nothing about these tough phones besides their names, so I would appreciate all feedback.

    He is also looking for a phone for his wife. She is using a flip phone right now, but their operator will be getting rid of 2G in 2021, so he is beginning to look for a phone for her. It would need to have an easy mode with big icons because she would only use it to call and text. What would you recommend to get from what’s available now OR to look for around 2021?

  3. I would like to get three phones for when I go traveling with my family, so we can open them for border patrol and they would have nothing on them. Naturally, these will be collecting dust between our trips, so I am mostly looking for something in the <$300 range for each. Found OP 3T, a bunch of G5 and G6, and OG pixels. Have any of these phones aged well? What would you recommend? Should I spend a few more dollars and get Pocophones?

    The main purpose of these would be for us to stay connected, browse for things to do on the fly, and watch netflix at the hotel.

  4. I am firmly set to migrate to Android, and few days ago I was speaking with my colleague about Samsung S9.
    I am in Europe, so Exynos version.

    I have a local shop that is authorized Samsung seller, and currently they have 256GB version of S9 and S9+ on sale:

    * S9 for roughly 590 € (4 GB RAM)
    * S9+ for roughly 685 € (6 GB RAM)

    I am inclining to S9, but it would be nice to have a slightly bigger battery and RAM, but at the same time I am thinking, those 500 mAh won’t really make a difference with 0,4″ bigger display.

    I wanted to ask here: how is battery life on S9 and S9+ ? I was reading some reviews, apparently S9 has suffered from having same battery as S8, but more powerful chip ?
    Of course I won’t be running display at native resolution, and I am not heavy gamer, but still, more than a day without charger would be a nice thing.

    Also, will S9 receive One UI update together with Bixby button re-configuration update ?

  5. My Axon 7 is slowly dying (mainly the battery) after 2,5 years and I’m looking for a replacement. Things the phone should absolutely have are a headphone jack and a SD slot. Willing to spend up to €500 and also to wait until summer (in case anyone knows of good new phones that will be released).

    Samsung’s S9 looks pretty good to me apart from the fact that I’ve read quite a lot of complaints about its battery life. If those complaints are overreactions I’d love to hear so as well.

  6. So I have a minor predicament, I want to get the Samsung Galaxy S10e because my Galaxy S7 is on its way out and have been trying to drive down the price as much as possible. I would ideally like the Snapdragon instead of Exynos, but I think it’s worth sacrificing to avoid dealing with grey importers. I have 3 options, what would you do?

    >**Option 1**

    >Buy it from Samsung with student discount + buying a cheap S6 model to trade in for a £150 discount (I found one for £65 so my total discount is £85) – **total cost is £517**

    >Pros:
    >
    >- Get it tomorrow
    >
    >- Full warranty
    >
    >- Trade in value in a few years when it’s time to upgrade

    >Cons:
    >
    >- Exynos instead of Snapdragon

    >- Could take up to a week to arrive, which is time I’m going to be anxious about getting scammed

    What would you do?

  7. Has anyone here tried the **Xiaomi Redmi Go**?

    It’s an ultra budget phone, and I understand it lacks the flashy features of flagship and midranged devices but I really only need a device that can handle the basics, as well as a mobile two-factor-authenticator for my online accounts (camera I do not need).

    And this looks like one of the the best phones at this budget range (**70 USD**).

    I’m from a small town in a developing country in SEA, so my options are limited. Either I get this, have my cousins Galaxy S3 fixed (for 30 dollars), or just save a little more for a 100-200 dollar phone.

    I only need a proper functioning phone. **My main concern is if it’s poorly built and breaks easily and things like that.**

  8. I currently have an LG G5 and I’ve read somewhere that its wide lens is 9mm. Is there any phone out there which has a wider lens than that or equal? Meaning 9mm and *lower*

    Thanks

  9. Need something cheap for mother in law. Unfortunately in Korea there are not many good mid range unlocked offerings.

    I’m considering refurbished galaxy S8 vs poccophone F1.

    What do you guys think?

    Edit: happy to take any other suggestions.
    Edit 2: how about redmi note 7? Actually looks pretty decent and cheap.
