Hi /spg/, I just bought a Galaxy S9 as an upgrade from my old S6. I'm mostly enjoying it, but as a ricefag I hate the inconsistency of the notification bar at the bottom. I know I can hide it, but if I want to use the back or recents features, I have to swipe up and recall the bar. Is there a way I can map the functionality through gestures? I'd like to swipe in from the edge of the screen for back and up from the bottom for recents (home is always hard press at the bottom).

Also, there's a lot of advice out there for preserving battery health long-term. Should I charge my phone all the time and let the machine regulate how and when the battery is charged? Should I only charge when battery is low? Should I charge small amounts throughout the day?

Thanks

LG v10 was the only good V phone. Actually thick and durable. Stainless steel sides and a 3M rubber grip backplate. The V20 claims to have some kind of military grade aluminum or some shit yet it bends super easily and if you drop it the backplate pops off really easily. As for the rest, they're shit and the US models removed the quality DAC inside which is what I cared for the most.

As long as you don't let it go below 10% there's no need to worry. Yes keeping it between 30 and 80% and charging in small bursts is the way to keep the battery healthy the longest, but it's not worth it being a slave to your phone when the benefits are so minimal.

Stop with this bullshit. Xiaomi has outright said the only way they can make their phones cheap is if they offer microservices on the side.

Xiaomi makes money on the margin on their phones, that's what tgeir CEO has said multiple times, including earnings calls. Xiaomi makes more money off their other products, but they make money on their phones because they move MASSIVE amounts of units, both of these reasons are why they can afford to sell their phones at the price levels they do. It's not microservices you utter pillock, and if you're not gonna buy a phone where you're the product then guess what, you're not buying a smartphone because every fucking Android handset makes (You) the product, same thing with Apple but their complete shitbags for making their blind faggot followers pay the exorbitant prices they do for their devices then charge for their cloud, iTunes, and on top of all that, sell your fucking data.

After recently acquiring a Galaxy Note 4, being utterly disappointed in it, and reading how the whole Note series is a mess from 4 to 7, I've started to feel distrust for Samsung as a phone company. Their phones always have some bullshit defect that kills the unit after a while. And thays not mentioning how they try to fuck their phones with pointless updates that erode the battery. I no longer want to be caught in such shit.

I have a feeling this is happening due to the phone expecting one of the gestures, MIUI has a lot of those by default, uber useful in general but would cause issues in some cases such as this.

Welp, Essential agreed to do an RMA on my used unit. They asked for proof of purchase and I basically asked if it'd be ok if I screencapped the Ebay confirmation email; but I sent that in the same message as with the video showing the problem (sim card tray), and she responded this morning with a fresh exchange order.

Looks like they put a $400 hold on your credit card, and immediately send you a replacement device until you send back the broken one and they basically verify you didn't run it over with a truck and release the hold on your CC.

Pretty fucking comfy if you ask me, I'm honestly surprised it went this well

just hammering around like a maniac it seems to register everything. The only way it could get it to not register the touch (although it don't know if that's just the app spazzing out or the phone fucking up) is by dislocating a few fingers, making a gang sign and hitting the lower 5 things at once. 4 works fine, with 5 at the same time it doesn't want to register.

If you tell me what that overlay app that shows where a touch is registered is called i can check if its the phone or the app, but even if its the phone, i don't see it causing any problems. What the heck would i need 5 simultaneous touches for?

No. Smartphones take time to develop. LG and Samsung likely independently started working on phones with three or more rear cameras after seeing the success Huawei had with the triple rear camera P20 Pro. Samsung already launched the A7 2018 with three rear cameras before LG launched the V40, just with a different combination of lenses (regular, wide-angle and depth sensor). Samsung will also be launching a smartphone with four rear camera sensors later this month (primary, depth sensor, wide angle, telephoto):

it's a pain in the ass and most normies don't even consider going to a repair shop unless there's something important on the phone that they either didn't back up or don't want to lose
if that's not the case they'll just go to the carrier store and get it replaced, this is the reason why programs like the JUMP program exist, it only benefits the OEMs amd carriers
it's also the reason why there are no good midrangers sold in the states

Are you fucking dumb? Custom roms are fun for tinkering and extending the life of a device. But to suggest someone to buy a 'new' to migrate to and use some unstable POS compiled together by some hackjob pajeets or otherwise is insane. Manufacturers have dozens of dedicated software devs to ensure the stability of a stock rom and are tested for bugs. thousands of man hours go into qa. Your shitty lineage rom or other derived roms will always have issues with Bluetooth, calling, lte, nfc, etc etc. Even when all is claimed to be stable there will be bugs that randomly pop up that can't be accounted for.

That was probably me, but I claimed Android itself can take up that much, depending on the rom/UI/background stuff. Common apps usually consume only about 20-40 MB while, as you said, games are an exception, those can use several hundreds easily.

Thanks. I also heard conflicting reports from different reviews and users: some say that Max Pro's near-stock Android 8.1 is so badly optimized in power consumption department that it makes the 5000 mAh battery hold its charge only marginally (tens of minutes) better than Note 5's 4000 mAh one and the (apparently) much more polished MIUI, while others noted that Zenfone beats Redmi by at least a couple of hours of display time, but all of those reports are dated May to July, and even if the former really was the case, Asus might have very well addressed these issues by now. The thing is, I couldn't find any concrete evidence they did, or even if that was a problem in the first place. So which one is actually better today at saving battery charge?
Also, since I'm only going to play 2D gacha games and non-game apps, am I going to get away with getting the Moto E5 Plus? It's much cheaper than either of the two and apparently has even better battery life thanks to its low-end hardware, but I'm not sure if it's good enough even for my fairly moderate needs.

that was for 8.1. 9.0 has encryption broken which just reinforces the fact that custom roms will never truly be stable or just work out of the box.

Just sifting through the last two pages of xda you can see all the dumb shit issues people have to deal with. clearly not polished and will never be to the point of stock.

Don't even need to use an icon pack, iirc nova has an option somewhere (in the labs section I think) that gets rid of the white shit

Forget the A8 and either get the XZ1C or a Galaxy S8 (can be found for ~400€ depending on the country you're in)
