I'm fucking sick of smartphones and I'm sticking with this.

50 $, battery lasts forever, resistant as hell even though screen is bigger than the original.

I just call my mom and brother with my phone, and sometimes some of my few friends, mostly to set up where/when to see each other, so I'm fine with it. I use the PC for work and entertainment and I don't give a shit about social networks or shitty chats like WhatsApp or cancergram. If I want to talk with someone I'll just call him, better if on the house phone so we both don't pay and, having a wired one, I don't get head cancer.

I once used a smartphone and all that crap and I'm fucking sure my brain health has improved since I switched to this jewel. Less distractions, less bullshit.

>> No.62404660

having been typing on a touch screen for almost 10 years, I'm so good at it now that I don't see the point. I've tried typing on an old blackberry, and newer physical keyboard devices, and it's simply not as fast for me as the touch keyboards I've gotten used to.

I'm interested to know if it is for anyone else.

>> No.62404716

Same for me. Got a Blackberry Classic from work and while it is a great keyboard that lets you type incredibly consistent long text without much need for typo-corrections, it just is so much slower to type overall.
Keyboard shortcuts for things like marking mail and replying is neat tho.
Would really love to use it, but all apps I use for private life like Instagram are not available on this device unless you emulate them. And then they're not tied in with the hub which I don't like.
But yeah, even for power mail users there's no "need" anymore to have a physical keyboard.

I have the illusion of being so good because the corrector helps me. But I'm trying right now and if I pay a bit more attention I can properly type without errors even without correction.

So yeah I'm now better to type on the phone than on the PC and this makes me feel filthy.

>> No.62404732

I am not even at 50% efficiency of my typing speed with T9.
I can't type without looking anymore and I can't write an email without having to rely on autocorrect to fix the fact that my fingers are the size of 3 buttons.
I haven't tried the blackberrys, but I don't think this is a good solution anyway.
For me, the problem is a full qwerty keyboard.
The only situation where a qwerty keyboard is better than a T9 is when a word is not already in the dictionary.
This could easily be fixed though.

>> No.62404770

such a real feel. I once did a screen recording of me typing, that showed where I hit the screen. The corrector has gotten so good, and I've gotten so good at correcting the corrector that I basically just poke the screen in the general area of the letter I want to type.

My typing skills are like 1% if I keep the phone in landscape mode. I only do it with the Hearthstone chat since it's the only way to talk to my friends without putting the game in background which could be seen as a disconnection from the game, but it's just outright painful, I tend to give short answers in this scenario.

>> No.62404862

thats the point of having a phsyical qwerty so your fingers dont cover the screen

then you get the best of both worlds because its the same aspect ratio as tvs and monitors 16:9 and everything formats correctly

>> No.62405030

Except in OP you have that fucking qwerty permanently covering what in other phones would be screen.

The reason why both Samsung and Apple went as bezelles as possible is just that: people want more screen percentage.

>> No.62405124

You don't get the best of both worlds though.
Documents (emails, websites, im's, etc) is a format where you need to show many lines.

The best of both worlds is typing in vertical and watching movies in horizontal (assuming the video format)
The only part I don't understand why we insist on using bad systems.
Screen rotation is a good example.
I get why the automatic rotation thing started.
It is a cool feature to show off, but it has not been improved in a long time and it is really bad.
Applications such as video players should just detect the resolution of the video and then pick the right rotation, it shouldn't be up to the user to rotate it or click the rotate button.

>> No.62405177

Yeah right? One thing I hate is that I like to keep the rotation off most of the time, since I sometimes type/read while laying and it screws up, so every time I want something to autorotate I have to enable it. The "horizontal" button YouTube App has is good as it saves me from that. But I know you watch porn and their players don't work that way.

Fucking this.

I have my old Acer netbook with Kubuntu and keep it as a treasure, there's nothing like it anymore. Sadly it's a bit slow for today's standards, even with Kubuntu, if there was something like this but a bit more powerful I'd buy it right now.

I've had 2 tablet PCs too and they just suck. Keyboard docks are never reliable and sturdy as on a netbook, they always feel loose and most of the times they end up to not even getting able to connect to the tablet anymore. Plus the tablet thing makes them overpriced af and you always get shitty specs unless you spend a lot. Yeah, the Surface seems good, but that's a High end device, netbooks were the cheap cute thing.

Plus these things are hard as hell to install linux on, since they basically have no USB drive without the dock (which sometimes isn't even recognized at UEFI level) and you're not even guaranteed it will work decently once you've put it there (thanks drivers).

Don't know what the anon posted but here's my opinion:
The native whatsapp app has been discontinued so you have to use the android version which isn't as well implemented and some features don't work all that good (like sharing videos gives me a "please restart phone" error). Don't know about telegram, never used that.
Funposting on weaboo image boards works well, clover crashes every now and then, haven't figured out dashchan yet because I can't install the extensions.

Honestly the Xperia X1 was the best phone I ever owned. The sliding keyboard was great.

But nowadays I don't even use a phone anyway. Maybe I should get one of those super tiny laptop things.

I do miss hardware keyboards, this was my first Android device and while it was far from perfect, the keyboard was pretty comfy, but the whole hinge setup made the phone quite thick even for the time... but today I don't see the point of blackberry style keyboards.. there are a ton of great touch keyboards on android that are way more useful than a hardware keyboard with a layout you can't change other than remapping keys.

I owned a Q10 for many years but still wonder how the Passport holds up. I know the OS is super optimized to the hardware so there's probably no lag at all. Do you use Android apps too or mostly use the BB10 apps from the app store? How is social media stuff? Mostly instagram since I use that quite a bit.

I'd switch in a heartbeat to the Passport but mostly I'm worried about a few apps. Personally I think BB10 beats out iOS and Android in terms of speed and functionality.

Why even include 4GB RAM if you're just going to check your mail and browse websites?
