    Yea same here.

    20 months ago I switched from the iPhone 5c to a Galaxy S6. Liked the 5c (despite it being the budget model) and not a big fan of my S6.

    Now that I'm close to renewal I google'd "S8 vs iphone 7 comparison" and the specs of the S8 completely smashes the iPhone 7 and it's a lot cheaper on contract.

    Struggling to justify going back to iPhone now :(
    2018 and we’re still talking specs on phones like it means anything :/

    And yet it's been Apple's selling point since the first iphone.

    Why are you considering a samsung when there are phones like the mi mix, essential phone or the pixel? They all make the iphone X look hilariously outdated and the pixel 2 is just the best in every class.
    Apart from the litany of issues with the pixel 2, he is right.

    That’s simply untrue. Every manufacturer talks specs when they release a new phone. Only gimps get hung up on the spec sheets when it comes to actually buying a phone.

    Best in every class? Doesn't my old, rusty S6 have a far superior screen than the Pixel 2?

    I won't pretend I know all about phones, but my very limited knowledge of the Pixel 2 is that it's only worth it if the camera is your most valued feature on a phone?
    You'd better head to the android thread really. pixel 2 is amazing, screen or no.
    Okay will do, cheers.

    I don't have a favourite brand when it comes to mobile phones but can see this thread is getting a bit snippy so will take a look elsewhere.

    Specs are crucial. It's the only way to quantify things. You can't quantify user experience, or preference, or opinions. It only makes sense to talk about things on the internet when you can 100% back your statements with hard, numerical fact: "xx is shit because it only has 240fps slow motion video, yy has 360fps" or "the 12mpix camera is utter crap, this other 13mpix one is clearly better".

    I'm not seeing much bad about the one plus 5t. Especially at half the price of some of the alternatives.

    I used to love oneplus, but their bizarre, highly invasive privacy issues, hardware fuckups and their arbitrary price hikes turned me right off them. Xiaomi currently have some of the best looking phones, I'll probably go for them next time.

    Xiaomi have some really variable QA, so I'd be a little careful there. Bought one as my main device when I was living out in China, and it has a really dim screen. Took it in for a replacement, and was told "you can still see things, we're not replacing it" despite it literally having half the brightness of the devices on display.

    Even sent in a Chinese colleague to see if I was just getting mugged off for being a foreigner, same deal. Turns out there are lots of 'Friday Afternoon Specials" like that from them. Maybe it has improved, but definitely worth looking into before diving in.

    Have they moved the MiUI on from "iOS in Android Clothes" mode yet? I always quite liked that - cherry picked the best of both worlds.

    well no actually. Specs fall apart when the actual tests show phone X, is significantly faster in use than phone Y despite the latter having the stronger spec sheet. It’s been like that for years but people still get overly excited about ghz despite it meaning fuck all until the use test cases come out.

    I heard that, but now they're entering the international market they're forced to stay on point.

    Your exact quote "they all make the iphone X look hilariously outdated ".

    Doesn't the pixel 2 have a fucked display?
    If I was as much of a lunatic fanboy as you, I'd be over in your thread telling everyone how shit their phone is. Thankfully I'm not.

    Pretty phone:


    Pretty fucking amazing looking phone:



    The key word in the sentence you're desperately trying to misquote is "look".

    I've been playing with my gf's iPhone X, really looking forward to getting mine.
    It seems great, face id is brilliant, it's fast, the screen is great, size just right, takes great photos and is solid.

    You think that'll change anything? They're making so much cash in their home market that branching out is by no means a necessary move. I guess they might just bin them like CPUs, with the fucked ones staying in China and only the best ones going International? Fingers crossed.

    They have a decent rep inside China though - far more consistent quality. They have super budget phones, which are dogshit, but they're priced in the same ballpark as dogshit so it's fine. :)

    I love my 5T, it's probably the best phone I've ever had in all honesty. As a free upgrade on my contract, I'm more than happy with it and will be quite happy with it for the next couple of years barring something mind blowing being released.

    Of course I'm completely ignorant to whatever privacy issues DB is referring to, so they probably have images of me from the front camera tugging through the vinegar strokes at OnePlus HQ somewhere. Good phone though, like.

    If you were banging one out at OnePlus HQ they probably have you on CCTV to be fair.

    They were keylogging everything, search and browser history and uploading it to a server in china. Take from that what you will.

    I had a Xiaomi mi5s last year. Lovely looking phone and a great spec and price but unfortunately I had several bugs with it that began to really get on my tits so got rid.

    How dare you bringing this aborted fetus of a thread back to topic.

    I've always used mine without case, but thinking about a folio case now my wallet has less and less stuff in it. Most are too bulky though.

    We're both paying them up with our contract tbh, she drowned her iPhone 6 Plus a few weeks ago.
