Phone Thread, or help me pick a new phone

Postby Orrie » 22 Nov 2016 03:12

So I'll buy myself a new phone for this christmas, but I'm not really sure which one, as there are many.
I've previously enjoyed HTC, with Desire and One Mini, but I've heard their recent generation has been disappointing, which is why I'm looking for other options.

Still, in needs Android, as Apple can go suck dick.
Probably spend something between 500-700€, but I really dunno the EU / Norway price differences, but I presume ~25% more here.


pls halp.

EDIT; Huawei P9 Plus or Samsung Galaxy S7?

As far as I know, currently there aren't outstanding highend phones on the market. So I recommend to go with the clear value-for-money winner Nexus 5X, save the bucks and buy a highend one next time. They aren't worth the money atm imho.

And yes, I own a Nexus 5X. And I'm very pleased with it.

I have my huawei p8 since one year and got rly no problems. Its not only rly good but looks rly decent and isnt that expensive as iphone or whatsoever. So id go for p9 any day if it is even better than the p8
The camera is awesome, too

I got the Wiko Pulp 4G, I have had it for like 4 months now and no problems with it, imagine like a high end phone from now, without all the useless fancy stuff.

EDIT: the link isnt quite the right one, also i would get the samsung s7, just because i've had samsungs for 3y+ and they've all been solid. Also it has the best camera in any android phone, or at least i think so.

All things considered your probably will be buying something else anyway, since autismus

I have had the s7 for the last couple of months now, and Im really satisfied. Imo its the best phone on the market atm, especially if you want android. Unless Huawei releases the P9s >:D (prolly only scandinavs will understand) I would go for the s7.

You could go for a one plus 3 / one plus 3T. Comes with android 6.0 and oled screen with headphone jacket lel iPhone. But ultimately it's about what you are gonna do with it.

Why would you spent 500 to 700 Europes for a smartphone if you only want to send SMS and call people?! Get yourself a smartphone for ~200€ max and ~300€ worth of alcohol.

I've got an S4 Mini with cyanogenmod, fits my pocket, SMS - check, doing calls - check, whatsapp - check, taking pictures of Ralf - check. Does everything I need. :eggplant:

Edit: forgot to downvote Farti. :P

Heard very good things about this one.

Running it with a custom ROM and configuring the apps usage sorts the battery life out. Got a friend whos got one and swears by it being the best phone hes purchased.

It was a joke.
I've used CyanogenMod in my 2 previous phones myself, but I want a decent camera as I like taking pictures and in some way be able to play video games while travelling between A and B, and a battery that allows me to watch some moving pictures that I've downloaded previously. Either support for x264 (which is normal) or x265 (thought, it is CPU intensive, so it drains the battery more, but allows for much much less space usage).

And I hate when things are slow and/or hangs up.
