Why would anyone need 6-8Go of ram on a phone?

Gayming and social media shit.
A non retarded individual will only use a couple apps so 3~4GBs should be more than enough.

>> No.65593408


It's good for future proofing if you're not someone who upgrades ever year or two. Also 6gb+ is incredibly useful if you emulate games.

>> No.65593489

I'm skeptic, why would social media use that much. My good ole S7 has 4 gigs and I don't think I ever went above 3 gigs used, even with heavy multitasking. Dolphin and PS2 emulators don't really work well on android (yet), and when it comes to smartphones, futureproofing is a lie since most people change it once every 2-3 years tops.
Isn't RAM for phones a marketing thing?

>> No.65593543


Dolphin runs flawlessly on my Note 8. It should run fine on an S7 as well if you have the snapdragon variant. Exynos chips are shit for gaming. Most current flagships aside from Iphones are rolling out with 6gb+ ram now so you'll be hard pressed to find a flagship with less in 2018 regardless. More ram is never a bad thing.

I asked myself the same thing about the Nexus 5, then I broke the screen which never happens to me so I was devastated. Bought some cheap phone that I actually liked a lot for only $70. Used it for a few months then Motorola had a sale over Valentine's Day so I bought a Moto Z2 Play and the Polaroid mod and the Hasselblad mod. I'm actually really happy on a spur of the moment purchase since it was so cheap at $350 (but the mods drove that up quite a bit). Anyway I miss the days of the old Nexus devices. Cheap high end phones easily unlockable with one line of code with no stupid hackey shit. Then after the Nexus 5 Google decided to make their Nexus line a part of the cellphone fights selling for a fuck load trying to sell to the common users and not the power users and developers that always used to buy the Nexus phones.

But yeah I dunno what to tell you man.

Im new here

I'm trying to decide between the Moto G5s plus and the Xiaomi Mi A1 currently for a good all rounder budget phone. I want to buy the mi A1 since I can get one for $80 less than the Moto, but I am a burger and Chinese phones are troublesome. Should I just buy it and try finding a good carrier? Or should I getting a comparable flagship of yesteryear? I hear the s7/edge is comparable, but I'm not sure if Samsung is that reliable.

The only real downside to it is that the software isn't quite as smooth as say a Pixel 2 or OP5T and the camera is mediocre (I have all three because I'm a whore) but otherwise it's pretty cool. Good screen, great battery life

The moto G5S hit 220, and the moto x4 looks pretty good spec wise. The moto g6 is coming out next month, and realistically, all 3 phones will be under or around 300 bux.
I have a moto x pure, and even though I love the damn thing with its 2k screen and sony camera, the battery life is starting to suck (also, the thing heats up pretty fast). I need a good comparison of the snapdragon 808 vs whatever is being released now for these moto phones to see if the performance is equal f not better.

Hey laddies, anyone willing to help an oldie who haven't followed phone specs for the last 12 years? My last phone I cared about was Nokia n73, so yeah a long time out of the loop.
So recently I realized that Xiamei's have a pretty good price/quality ratio, and decided to get one. The only things I care about in a phone are: ability to sketch on it, high quality screen, and a decent music chip, longer battery life and sturdiness is also nice but not super important.

>> No.65604550

There's multiple versions for different regions

Redmi Note 4 (with Mediatek X20 SoC)
Redmi Note 4X (Snapdragon 625)
Redmi Note 4X Pro/Prime (Mediatek X20)

Redmi Note 4 (Snapdragon 625)

Rest of the world/Global:
Redmi Note 4 AKA Redmi Note 4 Global (Snapdragon 625)

All three Snapdragon versions have pretty much identical hardware and have the same device name 'mido', so the same LineageOS build works on all of them.

The main difference between the Snapdragon versions is the network bands they have, with the Global version having the best band support. Basically if you need B4 or B20, get the Global version. Otherwise you're just as fine with the Note 4X. Indian version isn't sold outside India so you don't need to care about that one. Mediatek version sucks and is not recommended.

Not him, but I want to move to a moto z platform phone (z/z play/ z2force etc) now that the prices have come down. Is this still a feasible option software wise? My last phone ( a flip tracphone) and my current phone ( a moto g gen 1) have both lasted 3.5+ years and I want to keep that standard moving forward.

I was looking at the original z play, because I am probably going to get it unlocked to work with my current carrier, republic wireless. Should I be focusing on the z2's instead because of the age? I heard the z3 might be coming out this summer, which would drive their prices down further.

>> No.65605139

Yeah I'd say they're worth it, especially since I got this one on sale for $350. It's supposedly their middle of the line (or second from best, the Z2 Force being their flagship), but I haven't really encountered any bottlenecks or anything yet. I haven't done a huge stress test on it yet though. From what I read, the Snapdagon 626 SoC is pretty good and seems to be able to do everything I want, the Z2 Force has a Snapdragon 835, which is better in every area than the 626, but it doesn't seem like all that much. Imo it wasn't worth the extra $200 to get the Z2 Force over the Z2 Play when I got it on sale. Right now the difference is only $100 and that might be worth it if you're sold on one of those phones. The Force is $500 right now for some reason.

But to answer your question concerning lasting, I wouldn't doubt this phone will last the time frame you outlined software wise. These can be unlocked too. I have an unlocked bootloader on this thing right now. Side note: I was kind of disappointed in the development scene of this phone. I shouldn't expect a Nexus 4 or Nexus 5 tier development scene, but I'm still kinda disappointed that there aren't more than only on or two custom ROMs for this. You'd think it would be a prime target for development since the manufacturer actually is A-okay with you unlocking the bootloader, though I dunno if the Moto mods would work with a custom ROM. Anyway, software should be good for the foreseeable future. Moto's stock rom is pretty lightweight with only the Moto mods manager and a small Moto options menu in the settings that I never use.

Looking at getting a Note 8. Am an Amerifag, interested in the doodling functionality and looking to dabble in some VR (riftcat, etc). Also the USB-C and presence of a 3.5mm audio jack are attractive. But spending the extra cash to get an S/Note 9 doesn't seem worth it because functionally they don't differ that much. I don't give a damn about the camera. Tiny sensors are noisy.

>> No.65608835

You're not upgrading by going from an X to a Pixel 2 or even a P20. The P20 is slightly better, but unfortunately you have to deal with Huawei's trash which isn't anywhere near the level of Apple's sadly.
I'm sure you can deal with holding off for another 5 months or so when actual upgrades start popping up.

This is just what I heard on xda concerning the z vs Z2 lines. I hear the Z Play has a slightly less powerful SoC than the Z2 play, but the Z Play has a longer battery life and better camera and is cheaper. Some people were disappointed in the Z2 Play and actually liked their Z Play more and bought the v1 instead. When it comes to the top of the line flagships (Z and Z2 Force) the differences might be bigger.

Again I can't really help you out, I'm just taking hearsay from another forum and regurgitating it right now. I haven't gotten a chance to play with all the Moto Z family and compare them myself.

the A1 is too big for my taste. i like smaller phones.

Help I've been using a Samsung galaxy s4 for 5 or more years now. What should I upgrade to for longevity? I'm scared of android because of lack of updates compared to apple, but I don't know if the premium is worth it

If it has B20, B3, and B7 support it should work fine on most European carriers.

S7. You got lineage OS support so you'll always be getting updates

Xiaomi Mi Note 2? Ahh no wait, it's not IP 68 rated. Nevermind.

Redmi Note 5 Pro is the pajeet version so it doesn't have all the bands needed in Europe, gotta wait for the Global Redmi Note 5.

The Kirin chipset eats a lot more battery than the exynos, that's why de p20 pro has a 4000mah battery

There's absolutely nothing wrong with the notch as long as its short and you have an option to hide it.

what are some of the best 5inch phone options right now? my rn3p is starting to bend and I'm looking for options atm.

I'm perfectly content with the compute power/ram available, but i just want it in a slightly smaller package.

How does all of them compare to qualcomm. I know somehow benchmark test shows apple chipset beat all of them. But in terms of efficiency, which android chipset you'd choose?

>> No.65619875

i can tell you my xz premium with a snapdragon 835 (last year's top qualcomm chip) kicks the living shit out of the s9 and note 8 in browsing. also, it somehow got a higher memory speed than the note 8

Finally got some spending money and I wanna upgrade my phone from a Samsung Galaxy S5 (I'm poorfag). Debating between the Google Pixel original, possibly the XL, or the Note 5. Which phone is better, if you had to pick one? The Note 5 appeals to me because I do commissions and draw stuff in my spare time, but I hear the Pixel line is some of the best stuff on the market right now.

Anybody use either/both before?

What's the best budget phone you guys recommend? Like under $300 CAD just for browsing the web and basic stuff. I had a Zenfone 2 which was good enough but that just broke. I'd like a fingerprint scanner too if possible.
Carrier and size doesn't matter but I'm in Canada.

The Huawei mate series has it too but you don't need a dex station which is cool

Ehh, I've had it since November and i honestly would have encouraged it then but battery life has degraded significantly. Everything else is absolutely amazing but I'm lucky to get past 5pm without having to charge it. Get the S9 or wait for the note 9
