    @fontgeeksogood I've never taken off the screen protector that came on the phone.

    the rest are spy phones.

    actually the moto g6 isn't botnet but it's a bit shit, speaking from experience.

    Because Android doesn't spy on you at all with all the information you give it.....

    Don't get the g6 it has an annoying WiFi bug that doesn't affect everyone but if it does it's irritating as shit.

    Really, is it the same bug the g5 had as mine would just cut out now and then. It really fucked me off.

    From the list Oneplus, don't get a Moto phone, lenovo really don't get a shit about its g5/6/7 customers. Nokia android phones are good

    Lol that was 4 weeks ago. I've got the OnePlus 6T. That should do me for 12-18 months and then I'll see what the situation is with the foldable models.

    How do you find the 6T?
    I have the standard pixel 2 after the XL being a disaster... 7 warranty replacements then I gave up. All kinds of bad build quality issues.

    Just fear of losing the good camera, but dual sim would be great for me as I hate carrying a work phone.
  • Deleted user 27 January 2019 12:41:11
    Great. I really like it so far. Performance wise it's no different to the S9 but it's a slightly bigger screen and pretty much stock android. Also has double the storage of my S9.

    @JamboWayOh people are saying it is. Mine tends to be when I wake it from sleep and it has to reconnect to the wireless sometimes. It really pissed me off as I control all the lights with it and the delay is annoying. Won't be buying another of their phones after this one.

    Last week I got the Huawei P20 Pro. Really didn't want it, but literally every single phone shop I went in were eulogising it, I thought they can't all be on the Chinese payroll so I took a shot, two year contract.

    The only thing I don't like is the sound quality on music playback, it sounds tinny. It doesn't have a headphone jack, you have to plug them into the micro usb charging port. The headphones that come with the handset are GARBAGE.

    Everything else however, is great. It's got all the features like face and thumb unlock. Really quick processor. But the piece d'resistance is the Leica camera. It's amazing, takes lush pictures in even low light conditions, without a flash.

    It's my first phone from behind the Iron Curtain and yeah, I'd recommend it. Probably made in the same factories that make iPhones etc anyway. I for one welcome our Special Fried Overlords.

    Just got the Honor View 20 - must say it's a massive improvement on the Samsung Galaxy S6 I've been using for far too many years. Reason I went with the Honor is I cannot stand the look of the notch, and it has a headphone port, which is a massive plus.

    Enjoy your inferior LCD display with the darkening around the pinhole.

    So I'm leaning towards the 6t, but it's basically rrp so is there anything exciting on the horizon? When's the 7 come out?

    don't make me bust you up, man.

    I quite like my cheap Android phone. The screen is comically huge, but it's lightweight owing to its luxurious plastic construction. Performance is perfectly adequate, better than a Moto G6, worse than the Nokia 7 Plus.

    @cjb_bjc OnePlus 7 probably won't be out for a good few months. There might actually be a different OnePlus phone out in the next month or two, but 5G will be the focus on it and it's set to be less of a bargain.

    However, there's loads of exciting stuff on the horizon. MWC (the biggest mobile trade show of the year) happens in late Feb and lots of companies will have new phones launching there, including both flagships and lower end stuff.

    And on Feb 20 Samsung is launching a whole bunch of stuff probably, including the S10, so it's prob worth waiting. Even if you don't want any of the new stuff it might push prices of some of the older stuff down.

    Basically, unless your current handset is broken now is just about the worst time to buy a phone, but shortly it will be the best time.

    That's what I'm waiting on. Get MWC out of the way, retailers/MNOs will be looking to shift stock quickly to make room.
