What Phone?

13

Contract is up and looking to get a new phone, any advice? Currently have a HTC Desire HD and quite like the android operating system so not sure I would move to an iphone

Fuck me @ 8gb ram. I've never even had a computer with that much. The board must load super fast on that yoke

Did you find a good deal takkman?

Surely 8 ram is just for show. No apps would utilise that amount of memory and does android os use it in any way?

I do think it's best to have more and I'd pick one with 8 gig myself if it's an option. Just think these battle of specs are bit useless when os or apps don't utilise it.

Suppose in 2-3 years maybe all phones will have that amount so future proofing??

My sister has the One plus 5 and I can confirm it is a beast. Charges really quick as well.

Future proofing mostly, tbf Muzka. But having loads of RAM means you can have loads of apps stay in the background for long periods of time. Also, as phones OS increase in size/complexity, they'll use more and more RAM themselves, leaving less for apps. So it *should* mean the phone will be good for years to come. It also gets top benchmarking out of all phones - www.antutu.com/en/rank...

The camera is great, too. Does really well in low light. Nice having 128GB storage. Shouldn't have to think about that for a good while and will mean I can probably do a fair bit of 4K recording on holidays and stuff.

I'm mainly just hoping to get at least 3 years out of it, like the OnePlus One. If I do, I'll be happy.

3 years is good value indeed. 128gb is a spec I can see instant use for also.

I've upgrade due early next year so going to start keeping my eye on few phoned

0 |

Few phones*

Would definitely recommend this tbh. Obviously a year is a long time in phones, so next year could be a different ball game. But then again, this will have dropped in price too.

What do you say about xiaomi?

0 |

I dont I cant pronounce it

0 |

definitely getting a ZTE Axon M lads, i love me a gimmicky phone that will never be supported with decent software.

0 |

Guaranteed bust screen, no matter what way you drop it. Cant see a protective case being able to fit on it with it folding etc. Doubt you'll be able to get the screen fixed all that easily, either.

Big risk horse.

What's the best android at the mo, S8? PIXEL 2? Time for upgrading in 2 months want to get some ideas together

0 |

Oh definitely takki, and it's not as if I could just dander into the town and get some spud to replace the screen for me. I like living on the edge, especially with a 2 year old who loves YouTube

2 |

You reckon phone repair shops will carry replacement screens for them?

1 |

erm...no, that was my point

1 |

Lol. Takki gone so right wing he now can't detect nuance. Poor guy.

0 |

Misread the post.

TJ, you're like a broken record.

0 |

Clearly a threat of violence there. Worrying development.

0 |

Chill takki, it's only a phone. Don't let them wind you up mate

1 |

What are youz on about?

0 |

Playing innocent now. Sad to see his transformation.

0 |

TJ, genuine question, do you not ever get bored trolling? You're on here all day, every day doing the same thing.

0 |

I'm not on here all day. Perhaps between your 23 thousand odd posts you've been spending so much time reading my posts it has distorted your view of reality.

I'm also not trolling. Just noting my disappointment that you seem to have morphed from a reasonable poster into a bizarrely right wing one recently.

0 |

How am I 'right wing'. Any examples?

0 |

There you have it Takki, some sage advice for you from a kindred spirit.

0 |

lol still not backing up your labels, TJ. I must be asked you 3/4 times now and still nothing. I guess you're either trolling, don't know what 'right wing' means or just a bit confused in general lol

+ lol @ TJ bringing up someones postcount. I'm sure if I changed my name a few times and had numerous different usernames to talk to myself with, I'd have a far smaller post count. Loads of my posts have been into the science and space threads too.

0 |

Lol at "Loads of my posts have been into the science and space threads too"

If you know you're not a right wing DUP supporter then just ignore me, I'm probably just "trolling". You can go back to agreeing with the resident racist homophobe now.

0 |

TJ, your like a lunatic, who takes a shite in a public place, and then complains about people staring at him.

0 |

Why would you watch someone taking a shite munchingmonster?

0 |

Same reason i'm engaging with you now.

0 |

Sexual pleasure? Ok

0 |

Takki, tj is best ignored. Of course he's trolling. His whole existence on here has a primary focus of trolling.

0 |

I genuinely have never engaged in what i understand to be trolling.

I would however urge you to take Andy's advice. He seems like a shrewd operator.

Missing you in the football thread by the way Andy. Hope all's well,,

0 |

TJ a sound lad. I can vouch for him. That has a LOT of weight round here

0 |

I would come out in support of him too but i fear that would have the opposite effect

0 |

Molo, very honourable of you looking after the board spa.

0 |

Wise up mate

0 |

Board spa. Oh dear.

I see ableist slurs are still a thing for some people (**in my best TJ voice**)

TJ, serious question. Do you have Aspergers? Only reason I say that is, someone with Apsergers is on the milder end of the autism spectrum. A person with Asperger's may be very intelligent and able to handle their daily life. They may be really focused on topics that interest them and discuss them nonstop. But they have a much harder time socially. Nah, can't be you, cause you're a stupid cunt.

0 |

What is it? Are you a spastic or a cunt?

0 |

A spunt

0 |

When have I agreed with anything racist or homophobic ffs? Stop making up stuff to try and make yourself feel better lad. Go out and socialise or something.

Walk away Neil, you're better than this. Be the bigger man
