I want performance. I don't want my phone to slow down after a couple months. I would like to be able to root and load a custom rom, but stock isn't a deal breaker. A phone with support for quick charging is also a nice plus.

Not a concern. I am due for an upgrade in two weeks and on top of that I don't pay for my my phone. Daddy warbucks does while i'm at university

My upgrade is due in a couple of months. I'm on sprint so my choices are Samsung S8+, HTC U11 ultra, or blackberry KEYone. I've only ever had blackberry, htc, and samsung phones. I was thinking of a Sony phone but there's none on sprint. What are my upsides/downsides to going unlocked?

>> No.60709103


My understanding of how Sprint works is you can't get any unlocked phone to work with them since the IMEI has to be manually whitelisted and they only do that to phones purchased from them.

Yes it does

>> No.60709257

So then it comes to specs and root accessibility. I can give up on that with the KEYone but that one has minimal bloat and the blackberry features. The S8+ is the sequel to my S7 Edge. I've kept this one stock running a different launcher because KNOX and samsung security features. My last HTC was the M8 and I rooted the shit out of that. I know HTC has dev tools and their UHOH protects rooted phones as long it wasn't the root or derived features that caused the claim (at least it did when I had the M8).

Software keyboards are inaccurate when used without autocorrect, such as in SSH terminals or even CAPTCHA fields. When autocorrect is enabled it often miscorrects things and forces you to backspace and tell it that you meant to type what you typed.

Alright guys, this is the last straw.

I'm not a "phone person", and I don't give a shit about having top quality modern hardware or features in my phone. I pay cash for chinkshit smartphones and use them until it actually fails or I inevitably clumsily smash it on the ground. I didn't even fall for the smartphone meme until a couple of years ago when it became more convenient to get one than to not, with so many services just about requiring one now. I can't go back, as now even my workplace utilizes phone-based two factor authentication.

That said, Googles gradual unceasing encroachment and crossing the lines of what I actually want my phone and software to do has crossed the line. I generally only turn location services on when I'm actually using navigation, but I don't always remember to shut it off immediately once I'm done. A couple of times a year I make a point of navigating all the settings buried in a half dozen places in my phone and various accounts to try and keep the metrics and data collection to a minimum, but it gets more difficult and convoluted every time.

So, I need to get as far out of the botnet as possible while preserving the actual core functionality of my phone. How do I go about doing this? I'm willing to migrate completely out of Google services if there is an acceptable maps alternative.

I've never delved into this before and don't know where to start. What do? Currently have a ZTE Warp Elite.

What's the best Android phone I can get for about $300? My requirements are 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage at least with a 2500mAh battery at least, and it must have Lineage OS support. So should I look for a used Nexus/OnePlus or is there anything better? I'm actually considering a OnePlus2. My phone needs are pretty basic and it looks like an excellent piece of hardware. My Nexus 5 battery is dying and I don't really want to fix a shattered phone that's kinda worn out.

Look at how fucking thick that status bar is.

They can't put it right next to the corner because it's rounded.

The top is also more rounded than the bottom.

Between that and the softkeys you're losing tons of screen estate.

They are also likely using a custom framework like TouchWiz for the status bar. (and to whitelist apps like YouTube) Don't believe in their bullshit about pure Android.

Is there some native way on android 7 to lock selecetd apps, so that they will require a fingerprint scan to start? If not, then what is the best 3rd party app for it?

>> No.60726734

there is no native support for that, no

I use this one
On Android 7 but not with fingerprint. Lineage OS should also have this option in Trebuchet Launcher.

>wanted features
Honestly don't care too much, still miss my flip phone. Internet access and the battery not being a piece of shit would be nice

Idk, I have an upgrade available on my galaxy s5

Can fit in my pocket while not fat fingering the stupid fucking touchscreen too much.

Thanks for the recommendation, looks like a solid phone other than the glass backing

Okay fellas I have a few questions about the Blackview BV7000.
So I'm looking for a phone that's super rugged and doesn't break the bank and the BV7000 looks like an appealing option. So my first question, is the phone really as rugged as Jackie Chan says? Secondly I haven't been able to find it on GSM arena and a few of the different sites I've found the phone for sale on have different frequency readings so does it work freedom land as well. Overall if you own this phone would you recommend it.

Anyone running PA on OP3 by any chance?
I'm considering switching to it from Resurrection Remix, but I feel like I'm going to miss a looot of RR features.

Also, can anyone help me unfuck it? Had 0 experience rooting phones, decided to do it today.
Did this on HTC One M8, running 6.0. After unlocking bootloader, I went into recovery, installed SuperSU (later found out it was an earlier version) and after restarting my phone never leaves the boot logo. Tried wiping it, then wiping it completely, but nothing seems to help.

It won't work on Sprint

this is a common problem when installing an incompatible supersu/root. find a supersu you know will work, do a full reflash of the rom and try again. if you're able to access twrp you could try uninstalling your incompatible supersu, wiping cache and dalvik and booting, but i doubt it'll work.
