Phone suggestions?
 | 
Turkey notveryniceguybutaniceguytoo 
My iPhone5 of 6-7 years is seeking every opportunity to kill itself. -Screen broken as heck -Home button doesn't work -Sometimes decides to malfunction in its own terms or not to charge itself -Outerior of the phone is like a clogged rifle from WW1 -Remember how they say iPhone 6+ can bend? This bish does it better -Doesn't wanna read my SIM -Slow af Now I'm looking forward to bidding farewell to my bud and buying a new phone. My budget is quite flexible, but I don't want a phone at the cost of a spaceship. I don't want an iPhone either. I heard HUAWEI is a good brand but am not much knowledgeable on the subject at hand. Any suggestions?

I have experience with Apple, Samsung and Huawei and Samsung is just the better phonebrand imo. Tho Huawei has some good screens.
2019-03-24 16:17
imo Huawei's huge downside is the system theme even stock android would do better

I mentioned in the thread that I don't want an iPhone or a phone at the cost of a spaceship. I'm not willing to pay 10k Turkish Liras for a phone that'll get outdated in a year :/ Perhaps you should read the main thread first if you want the aimed audience to care about your comment

"I'm not willing to pay 10k Turkish Liras for a phone that'll get outdated in a year " every phone is outdated after 1 year anyway good luck buying trash :)

I could milk a new phone for 10 years, but would rather pay 1/4th or 1/5th of 10k Turkish Liras. Challenge accepted.

It's just so laggy and weird, I had samsung s7 before and then I bought iphone XS and it was the best decision in my life
2019-03-25 13:12
Samsung's version of android is heavily modified, which could be a reason as to why it feels slower. You're comparing two phones that you shouldn't compare though, since one is older, cheaper and well, outdated (when used in a comparison).

I bought huawei in 2014 coz previous samsung what i bought was at shit era of samsung. The phone did everything i wanted. Now in 2018 i bought huawei p20lite Its perfect and i would not buy other phone for that price. I just dont like the keyboard it uses. Swift key is bit odd or my hands are just big coz they are. Would recomend waiting for p30 to release after 2 days and check it out. (dont know your budget so i picked that) Phones are perfect

My problem with sailfish was accessibility. Sailfish community is tight knit and when I tried to fit in with my limited knowledge, I was laughed at in the freenode and on the forums. On LineageOS, they welcomed me and eased me in and had basic beginner explanations and steps to learn and progress. Lineage freenode is snooty and bad but sailfish's fucking brutal
2019-03-25 09:10
interesting, i will see when i try it out. i hope i can figure most of it out myself so i dont have to ask the dumb questions. do they have an faq somewhere at least?

Yes but its wrong and will almost certainly brick your phone. You will say this on the freenode that this went wrong and you follow this step and then everyone will laugh at you and start calling you newfag newfag and illiterate. If I was you, I would opt for lineage OS. I myself (and with a friend's help) built a version for my phone but I failed to even install a supported device and documentation sucked too. My 2 cents, don't go for sailfish.
2019-03-25 16:06
lineageOS is an android fork, right? i do not want google code in my OS. i dont even want code from AOSP that was written by google. those guys cant be trusted. they are bad men who do bad things for money. they sell AI to the american DOD. theyll do anything for money. they steal purses from old ladies. i do not trust google to do anything other than pipe every bit of data to their servers. i already use gmail and google search. thats more than enough for them to build a profile. i should actually stop using all their services but at least those 2 are convenient. giving them 24/7 gps tracking that i cant turn off and a way to remotely control my phone and disable and install apps without my permission, just to use a shitty mobile OS that is just a skin on a container on a linux distro, no thanks. not an option. if it was a full desktop OS then maybe i would want to compromise my ideals and use it. i am currently using a microsoft phone with windows mobile. thats how much i hate android. and i hate microsoft too. fucking evil assholes building backdoors into my pc for the NSA and using their private customers as involuntary beta testers for their business branch so they dont have to pay for proper testing. fuck them too. i made a lot of money thanks to windows 10 coming out, fixing other peoples computer, but its not getting anywhere near mine. if you have any alternatives that dont have code from google apple or MS in them i'll take it, but all i could find is sailfish and the librem phones.
2019-03-25 16:18
and to go back to your earlier point, because lineage is based on android, google can still get your data, no problem. you have to pull the weed out by the root to make sure. i wish there was a desktop linux distro that also compiled to ARM easily and had apps for ARM instruction set, like MS is doing with their store. that would be gold. its such a good idea that im almost suspecting that there are powers at work to make that not happen...but thats silly. its not like there is 1 government on the planet with the motive means and opportunity to create such a dependence on closed source code made by companies from that country, for which they have a bunch of zero days, and they surely cant force companies to keep the leaks open and keep it secret through top secret court orders, for which the penalty of breaking the secrecy is a sentence of high treason...nah, thats crazy conspiracy stuff. oh wait...
2019-03-25 16:29
You should probably stick to iPhones if you think that's how it works. They're great for non-technical people.
2019-03-25 16:29
lol buddy im a programmer. i would love to tell you where i worked but i think its a good idea to keep hltv and work seperate. i say politically incorrect things here. if you think that any of what i said here is not true, its probably best for you to stick to iphone. apple steals your data too but at least they arent selling it to advertisers yet.

Lineage code has been reviewed line by line by multiple orgs like TOR and EFF and no backdoors or connections to google exist. If you use a pure lineage and do not install Google apps, only thing they can know about is your phone status, serial number, battery health, etc (yo know basic diagnostic data. They can also get sim info and then use it for triangulation data (highly doubtful) but they do not have access to other data like barometer, humidity etc. It can be disabled by a simple code line becase the basis of that code is just checking if Wifi gives internet connection and that's a functionality many are willing to sacrifice. The problem with lineage is not google but that your firmware still can get anything it wants since the OS still runs on firmware. Google can't get location, disable apps and install programs and such thanks to the privacy guard extension and option to only allow root access to install stuff (its called something in terminal. I don't remember. I use F-droid with TWRP). Your mobile maker still holds you by the balls though. Google on LOS with no google apps installed doesn't. Even with a single or two no root access apps, it doesn't do anything (unless you actively give it root api to enable G cam and such) Lineage is as safe as it gets in current environment. I used LOS since September 2016. Also, around same time, got protonmail, duckduckgo and firefox. Only google service I use is Youtube and I need my recommended videos. On mobile, its NewPipe. Also, microsoft isn't cool. My battery gives out now on Linux but from October 2016 to July 2018, I used Ubuntu (its basic but code's clean. Show me the proof k or arch is better. They are all forks. Ubuntu is safe. Nvidia uses it for internal stuff. No one is spying in or on ubuntu) I also carry a ubuntu and Tails (You can carry Qubes. I don't mind. I trust TOR so I trust Tails. At some point, you gotta trust someone. I am not a programmer and I can't review code so I trust some folks and their recommendations) stick on me if I have to use someone else's computer. Tails usually but since TOR is banned on some providers, Ubuntu image works too. Problem with all this is that even though they can't see you, you stick out like a sore thumb in a sea of fingers. That's bad I think. I would much prefer a system that makes me anonymous in a sea of fingers itself. Like some kind of VPN that instead of being P2P encrypted, Just dumps fragmented data in a network and then recombines it on the website's end and then fragments it again in a sea of data and combines them locally in my system. I know, sounds impossible but let's see what future holds. I certainly don't like hiding in the shadow though. I like assassin's creed style stealth of blending in

I just told you it can be disabled with one line in the terminal. I don't have it disabled for some other reason though but you can. There's guys literally doing everything on their phones everytime a new nightly comes out and then checking all connections made to all sites by their eyes. It was a big deal back when this functionality was finally removed since as of now, you can use a LOS to full extent of it without making 1 connection to any google server (on like brave etc, you can even disable fonts so sites can't connect to that gstatic and pull fonts and shit. LOS is open source and well reviewed. Literally reviewed on a personal level by TOR and EFF team. Also, a network of independent programmers. Google has no effect on the project. Literally ZIP. Even the android code is hand sorted and ported over by LOS Dev Team (who make nothing). Also remember this. Open source and well reviewed is never paid.
2019-03-25 17:40
you can disable gstatic etc with noscript in browser extensions. its not the internet browser that im worried about. what im worried about is that this OS is a fork of android. there can be things buried in there that sleep all year and wake up for 20 milliseconds. then eyes probably wont help. its google we are talking about. you are using their legacy code. i dont trust google. so your OS wont work for me. i think the people who work for google who make a lot of money are maybe smarter or better at their job than the unpaid people who make your OS, although maybe some of them are actually the same people, but i dont trust them to read google code and vet it. i wouldnt trust myself to do that. id rather just start over. i am willing to pay a lot of money for a phone that has open source well reviewed code that is not made by google. there are a lot of open source geeks in the whole IT community and some of them do make money. it seems to me like there would be an opportunity there. and other people think so too. puri.sm/products/librem-5/pureos-mobile/

I mean I can't hold your hand and make you install LOS but as things stand right now, there's no dormant code no nothing in LOS. Also, you are giving too much trust to google. Its well known in programming circles that google actually doesn't bare bone code all that good. Its code is actually severely lacking and I know this russian professor who on his blog wrote that after he reviewed Google's Android keyboard code on request (he got pissed it was so heavy. He said W95 was smaller and lot more useful), he was furious at its inefficiency and overall uselessness. He even went as far as to say that if a student submitted such a poorly written code, he'd fail them. Haven't heard about purism but seems like a copperhead knockoff type to extract cash from the paranoid. I stay away from such niche folks
2019-03-25 17:53
well im not gonna pre order it but if they build a phone that runs any linux distro for 650 dollars i will fucking buy it even if it has chinese govt backdoors in its hardware. just to get away from google and MS. one hurdle at a time.

Like my dude you can already do it. Go to shenzen and they actually code mobile firmwares there. You can maybe pay to port a linux distro onto the processor (if it can be done on qualcomm or mediatek/kirin anyway).
2019-03-25 18:01
yeah i think that will cost more than 650 dollars though. it would be pretty complicated to code custom firmware and design a custom hardware package that has all the functionality of a smartphone. might as well start a company if i invest that much. i dont have the money for that and enough work lined up. so i'll take the 650

I reckon about 20000$ since we actually had a factory unit firmware that we needed to crack and remake for RTD control and PLC. shenzen in the place my guy
2019-03-25 18:08
yeah its a good idea, i'll keep it in mind in case i do ever make bank and want a fun holiday its not just about firmware though. you need those chinese guys to fit the hardware into a smartphone case with everything in its place and without using cheap flash memory from 3rd rate factories in a swamp in thailand or whatever. that costs money too. maybe go like apple. "designed in california" sounds much better than "made in china"

There's the price of speed. Big cats disney nature one. There's fatal instict. There's sneak peek of Tanzania. There's Tanzania-The wild. There's one on hunters. There's one about 2 cubs who were orphaned and raised and then released. Frankly, there's nothing more fascinating than a cheetah mother raising her 5 cubs to adulthood. In serengeti, 1 in 10 chance the cub becomes adult. In fatal instinct, on mother raised 5 to adulthood. that's 1 in 100000 chance. Certified Bruh moment

He doesn't have to say anything. He just has to say (if forced) "What kind of idiot made this setup? Why is traffic routed here? I don't know about this. I just handled bill payments and offers." because really he is used more like a office boy and advertisement man.
2019-03-25 18:18
security through obscurity is a nice theory but its not a good foundation to build a cybersecurity policy on. if you use services to build secure tunnels or access networks like Tor you already stand out like a sore thumb. might as well try to also make your endpoint secure instead of just the connection. and dont forget, if you try to blend in, you actually have to pretend to be a normal person. that means having a facebook account and liking alt right memes and pictures of kittens and people's dinner. etc. it takes time and dedication to not stand out if you are doing something extra-ordinary.

I think I actually posted this on here sometime ago but here's my local scrambler (I like to call it that). I have a friend who manages the food court for a local Mall-cum-IT lunch spot. Its packed most times. I got a computer system from a scrap dealer (totally anonymous cash transaction) and made a node there. What that does is that everytime someone connects to food court wifi, they are routed through our node to the wifi box. then, we are connected to the same box (we use a range booster system to send stuff. Also, we live like 350m from it so not much to do there. So our unmarked traffic gets lost in that stream and node scrambles all MAC addresses so you see stuff happened on this wifi but on whose machine is beyond. Also, we have had no problems yet since we just use that system to watch totally legal but pirated porn and browse like /pol/ and shit. We are totally vanilla but need an option to feel safe.
2019-03-25 17:57
thats pretty clever, but cant your friend get in trouble for that if someone follows the trail? in NL the govt doesnt care about people pirating shit for themselves, they wont even allow just any dutch corporation that release movies here to follow bittorrent trackers, so they cant sue anyone and the judge doesnt have to order internet providers to look up who those ip adresses belong to. there is only 1 company that is allowed to do that and they are only allowed to sue distributors, people with seed boxes and original uploaders of torrents. its pretty clever. but if you do distribute content, or help people get away with pirating by distributing software that serves that purpose like XBMC/Kodi addons that stream tv channels, which your friend is doing by facilitating you, you can get fined.

We have a population of 1.25 billion people. Torrent policing is not a problem here. No one ever go DMCA notice. Some connections are shut down if they torrent and distribute any indian move but that too only after a court judgement and that too gets off on first warning. also so many dead people connections here good luck prosecuting 98 yo dead man from bastar Haryana police. Also, we don't distribute content. No one to distribute (no frends PePeHands). They can't follow the trail. If they do, they'll end up at the food court. Since anything else is beyond. If they confiscate the node, sorry for the guy whose scrap computer parts I got. Anything ahead, there's just no base to go on. Approximately 2000 people connected to the wifi and all MAC addresses were mixed. Requests were distributed. They can;t beat ass of 2000 people and force confessions.

150 less? Here in Sweden s10 costs 10 000 KR (950 euro), oneplus 550 euro) Sure, some things like the camera and display come at a cost, but you'll still have 64GB and 6 gb ram, a decent camera, display. plus a more fluid os (in my opinion). Also, samsung are very slow with updates, and in Europe its their exynos chip edit: "samsung flagships which are far better." sure in geekbench, but in daily use, you'll not notice, if anything I'd say plus is more smooth/fluid/faster. (I have compared with my Oneplus 5T against his s10 plus)
2019-03-24 17:25
The OnePlus 6t was half the price of the iPhone XS at launch, and it's just as good or slightly lesser in some categories. OnePlus are a great company.

if anything its barely an improvement over their last gen. We make large strides in computing power on everything except phones. New phones are a scam.
2019-03-24 21:42
Here are your choices >New processor. So yes, more computing power Better screen, best in the world. Another camera. In display fingerprint scanner Higher screen to body ratio with hole punch Optional dual selfie camera Larger battery New one UI (although that's on older devices too) >barely an improvement Pick one
2019-03-24 22:30

New processor is cheaper to make, not more powerful, same screen as before. Camera is basically useless anyway. Touchscreen fingerprint scanner is old technology. useless gimmick. Larger battery results in same life bc cheaper to make processor uses more power. UI isnt hard to change, you could change it yourself if you really wanted to.
2019-03-24 22:33
New processor is more powerful AND more energy efficient. Screen is different. It's been rated the most colour accurate screen out of any device, including other phones, TVs, monitor etc. In display fingerprint sensor are not old tech. Only a handful of phones implement optical ones, and the S10 is the first phone to use an ultrasonic one. It's more convenient and more secure. So not a gimmick. Battery life is longer, I've seen comparisons. The new ui is actually really intuitive. So you're basically just completely wrong. Do you have a vendetta against Samsung or something?

United States xxpowmanxx 
I have a vendetta against companies that convice consumers that something is new when its not. The processor is objectively not more powerful, its cheaper, the same power, uses more energy. Color accuracy is a vague measure. the s10 is nowhere near as crisp colors and an oled. Few phones have implemented the in-display fingerprint scanner bc its impractical, stuff gets on the screen, glass over screen, etc. all of these block it. "first phone to _____" is what makes it a gimmick. UI is not part of the phone, the phone is the hardware not the software. Battery life is longer when compared to an older phone bc battery dies goes down with age.
2019-03-24 22:49
They didn't convince me, I decide for myself that it's new because it is new. I'm not a sheep. Processor doesn't use more energy and is more powerful. Stop saying it isn't. Colour accuracy is a good measure of a screen. To get a rating like that is quite an achievement. But even if you say that it's the same as before, Samsung phones have always had amazing screens, so your original comment that Samsung and Apple bring out "garbage phones" is still wrong. Fingerprint isn't impractical, I mean sure, it will be if you actually break the phone and crack the glass or something, but the ultrasonic works much better with water droplets and dirt, etc. Marques Brownlee did a video on it. And you're saying that because someone introduced brand new technology that it's a gimmick? That's not what a gimmick is. Gimmick - "something that is not serious or of real value that is used to attract people's attention or interest temporarily, especially to make them buy something". It has value, so it's not a gimmick. And when the old gen phones are compared to the S10, do you really think that they use a year old phone for that battery test? No, they take a fresh old phone. Kind of think you're baiting at this point.

They use what makes the new phones look best. Its not a gimmick bc its new im saying your defense in it not being a gimmick that they are the first to do it is a bad defence. It has no value, pointless addition to get more money out of people. Much like the ram amount they add to their phones that the processor doesnt even support, like they did on s6 and s7.
2019-03-24 23:15
I didn't use it being new as my defense for it not being a gimmick. I said it was new because YOU said it was old tech. I then said it's more convenient and secure as to why it wasn't a gimmick. So you just got my defense wrong too. You're really just a blind hater of mainstream stuff aren't you? Am I too much of a normie for you to handle?

Qualcomm makes one, also other companies have been identifying shapes(exactly what its doing) using sound waves for years. The issue is it cant look past dirt/water.
2019-03-25 05:36
What do you mean? Ultrasonic ones DO look past dirt and water, better so than optical fingerprint sensors, and that's why they're better.
2019-03-25 08:17

Ultrasonic uses light to essentially get a picture, water distorts it and dirt blocks it entirely from getting to your finger. Heat signatures work a bit better than ultrasonic.
2019-03-25 18:08
Knew you were baiting xd
2019-03-25 18:09
I think it is the best on the market, but not by much since it's literally the note 9 with no S pen, a faster processor, and a fresh design. Definitely overrated when you can buy that instead for like 600$

I'm using Xiaomi Mi A2 (I bought it for about $240) and it got: Android One (you get updates and patches from Google for 2-3 years, for example, I got Android 9 update day after I bought it) 20MP+12MP back camera with functions like portrait mode (blurring background, looks awesome), slow-mo and timelapse 20MP front camera Snapdragon 660 5.99" screen (would be 6" if not rounded corners) 1080x2160 screen (18:9 proportion) 3010mAh + Fast Charging (you can fully charge the battery within 40 minutes and it lasts for the full day if you don't play all the time) Dual-Sim The bad news are: lack of NFC no SD card slot the camera is a protruding camera, but it can be almost prevented with the case from Xiaomi

Really liking my LG V30+. Sort of a flagship phone a year ago, here are some highlights. - Great rear cameras, one is a wide angel one and it has become a must have feature. - Finger print sensor in just the right spot, so natural to use. - Long battery time. - Dual-sim or sim+micro SD. - Surprisingly solid. Literally ran mine over with my car and all is till good (except cracks in glass back). - Wireless charging. A must have once you try. - Amazing audio. Not only is there a real mini-jack port, it has stellar audio quality - so good.
2019-03-25 17:52
Look into OnePlus or Samsung tbh. OnePlus is the best midranger imo and Samsung is the best high end option. Huawei is eh, their hardware is decent but their Android skin is Doo Doo. Sort of like how Samsung used to be.
