Now searching for alternatives and found a Huawei P9 and a OP2 in my area. Now the OP2 lacks NFC but is there anything you really NEED NFC for ? Like I dont pay with my phone or use any NFC-tags ever... Something else you need it for or can I go with the OP2 if I dont use any of NFCs tools ?

So i'm looking at getting a Xiaomi Note 3 pro. I have no experience with rooting android. I'm sure it's not that hard.

Accidentally smashed my Note 4's glass. Can't replace just the glass without fucking up the phone with glue - it has to be the whole screen at the cost of £120.

I decided to buy a new phone but:
>iPhones don't let me torrent and no file manager. Also Applemao
>Samsung's non-removable batteries and the Edge gimmick are shit
>HTC is overpriced for what you get.
>LG/Sony/Motorola are probably overpriced too for the mediocre quality.
>CAT S60 looks ugly and is unsymmetrical as fuck
>Huawei runs native Android but /g/ says it's poor quality, so is OnePlus (break easily, last only 12 months etc.)
>Other Chinkshit is low quality (source: /g/'s anti-shilling)

My only logical conclusion by negative elimination is to buy a brand new Note 4. I was really happy with this phone but the glass doesn't keep my brain clean now... buying the same phone sounds retarded.

I assume you mean switch to the Note 7/S7

I'm thinking of buying exactly the same version N910F (some versions like P or T can be cheaper).

It's £120-130 for Pajeet to pry it up and change the screen, or for £260 I can have a fresh Note 4 device - one rooted for playing with Cyanogen-mod and one unrooted for running Banking apps etc.

Heavily considering buying a new phone, but the number of phones and reviews out there is a little overwhelming.


I've heard good things about T-Mobile and Verizon from relatives and friends but my mind isn't really set on either of those.

I don't want a phablet or whatever they're called. Doesn't need to be tiny, just needs to be able to fit comfortably in my hand. Somewhere around 5 - 5.5 inches maybe???

I don't really care about removable storage so long as there's something like a 32 GB or 64 GB option. Preferred resolution would be 1920x1080 but I'd be ok with going higher than that. I think I'd like to install a custom Android ROM. A decent camera would be nice. Can't really think of anything else.

In description it says:

TD-LTE B38/B39/B40/B41 2555-2655MHz

A global variant has:
>4G: FDD-LTE B1/B3/B5/B7/B8

This is the Taiwan version (kate). only resellers call it the "global version"
Your version is the normal one

It has different dimensions (taller) so cases won't match and has no roms for it.

Unless you need the extra bands the normal edition is better.

That has nothing to do with the fact that the you are running a vendor rom full of bugs and no updates. which is why you have no keyboard.
flashing the global rom from Xiaomi ensures that your software is up to date and legit.

The S7E edges are way too steep to me and I don't want the smaller screen of the normal S7. Besides, T-Mobile is based when it comes to replacements. They replaced my bootlooping G4 the next day.

It's a great device with good camera, not bad benchmarks, at least the antutu ones and the design is pretty nice. I'm going to order one in a month or soon just to see how people like it after a longer period of time. However in similar price range you can also have Oneplus 3. It's been bugged a lot during its release, however now all these bugs have been fixed, so you'd be getting yourself a quite nice phone for even less the price than the Honor 8. You can always choose xiaomi mi5. It should be cheaper than both H8 and OP3 however that's not how it is in some countries. But it's still a great phone with nice battery life. Design is simplistic and modest if I may call it this way. Though it's always up to you. Take Honor 8 for the design and camera. Oneplus 3 for slightly better performance (though you won't see a difference in day to day use) or just mi5 for its general perf/price factor.

Axon 7 for multimedia (best DAC on a phone and amazing speakers, great display), OnePlus 3 for community support. I'd lean towards the Axon 7 - being a SD820 it'll get some support either way.

Newest Samsung phones come with their custom CPU exynos which is a complete bitch for custom roms. Get the pixel phone if you want custom roms after the support ends. If Samsung drops the support you are fucked.

In general look for snapdragon SoCs if you want ROMs and check out XDA to see how popular the devices are.

Got myself a Moto X Pure, first Android phone since my Droid 4; had an iphone 5s for the past 2.5+ years.

Recommended first installs, best apps, wallpapers (first quad HD screen, so I'd like to have a nice one), etc.

I remember why I chose android initially, love the ability to make a phone your own, I only switched to iphone because my phones always turned into laggy trash after a few months. Hopefully this is no longer the case, the moto x pure feels really snappy initially.

Unfortunately Huawei's rom is Touchwiz-tier shit so that's a deal breaker.

I have a Cat S60 that I'm planning on returning, as they have it locked and won't tell users how to unlock the bootloader so that we can root it. Probably some bullshit export restrictions on the thermal camera. Does Huawei have any bullshit associated with it(like Samsung pushing advertisements), or fucky custom roms, or do they pretty much just sell hardware with Android preinstalled? The Huawei Honor V8 looks mighty tempting.

Alternately, any suggestions? Not spending more than $600, looking for at least 3500mAh, 2GB+ RAM, 32GB+ storage, expandable storage, NFC, Android 6+, company that hasn't pulled bullshit in the past couple of years.

Both around the same price. X820 is faster because SD820 and more RAM, but has non stock UI and no 3,5mm jack ala Apple.

Moto X is still pretty fast, SD808 is good enough and the UI is stock-ish Android.

Only LG makes phones with removable batteries these days.
