    I'd expect the price of the current 5" Pixel to drop by a decent amount when the Pixel 2 is unveiled on October 4th. Definitely worth considering.

    I've had the XL since launch and it's a lovely phone: no bullshit gimmicks or bloat, just stock Android 8.0. Response is still as smooth as the day it arrived.

    Been looking at androids recently, only thing holding me back is airplay style functionality. How do I play music from an android device to something like volumio raspberry pi?

    Bluetooth, like you always have done (since you stopped plugging your walkman into the back of your amp at least)? Or does that not work?

    Would plugging a Chromecast Audio into it and using Android's native cast protocols not work? Or does Volumio not support Google's casting services? Must admit I'm not really up on these things.

    If you absolutely need airplay then I think most Android devices would need to be rooted first, but there may be some vendors who offer that functionality out of the box.

    Depends on what you mean with something like the Volumio.

    The Chromecast Audio is great if you just want to stream music to a stereo. If the Volumio has support for line in audio (not sure what the correct term should be) then that's solved.

    What is it you'd like to stream? If it's Spotify then it looks like that's supported by the Volumio itself.

    So I'm on the market for a new phone. Possibly below 250 euro, my main concerns are good camera and great battery life. If it can stay below 5.5", all the better.

    I'm eyeing the Honor 6X, which is currently 200 euro for the 32/3GB model (and just 230 euro if I want the 64/4GB model), but the dual camera doesn't seem as good as it should. I could also go for something a little smaller.
    Lenovo P2 if you can find one. MASSIVE battery. 200 Euro.

    I ended up finding a decent deal on a Galaxy A5 2017, so I got that.

    Samsung are usually nice, but too expensive for what they offer. Still, on sale, so it was okay.

    Oneplus has been logging all your data since moving to OxygenOS.

    Told you to avoid them.

    Turning that off only turns off part of what they’re capturing.

    I'd be more annoyed it's killing your battery life as well
