Compact phone!

I'm retiring my Xperia Z3 Compact and I need something like it size-wise.
What are the options?
Is there something more on the cheap side (<300)? Some chink stuff that is good? Or am I stuck with the new Xperia XZ phones? How are they?

I'm really unsure what to buy in the near future. Fucked up my Samsung S7 edge pretty good, glas on the back is broken, it gets hot while charging. It gets hot while in my pocket, notifications don't work reliably anymore. You get the idea

What I need:
Good batterylife
Good camera
Possible custom ROMs
Able to play some games
Decent screen
No bloatware
rSAP if possible
Carrier: Vodafone Germany
Budget: 600€ +-50
Samsung is out for me, third phone that gets slow/hot over time.

Got some suggestions in the last thread. Looking for long term experiences with OnePlus devices. Also: is rSAP dead in modern phones?

>tfw still on my comfy OG mi max
>kinda feeling the upgrade to new shiny stuff itch
>newer mi max would really just be the same but maybe like 20% better in terms of performance/battery/screen quality
I guess getting oreo would be cool, but it doesn't seem necessary. I feel like smartphone manufacturers aren't really improving anything substantial these days. Also the battery has only degraded to 90% of its original capacity so even that is fine with this battery life.
I guess a flagship with nfc and a more usable camera would be cool, but then you get some fragile piece of shit with a glass back and no headphone jack.
So for now I'm just holding on to this thing until it breaks or they somehow come up with the perfect phone. Anyone else decided to do the same?

Please can you guys help me? My old iPhone suddenly stopped working, it would no longer charge or turn on. I went to the store and they wouldn’t fix it, but instead upgraded me to the new iPhone X. I was pretty skeptical to ever use any apple product again but I decided to give it a try.

That was a huge mistake. This phone fucking SUCKS. I can’t download music using any of the apps off the AppStore, none of them work with YouTube links. Even using a YouTube to mp3 converter, it now has a copyright message and blocks the download. Meanwhile the in-app ads are out of control. On my old phone I used 2 adblocking apps and had no problems. I’ve tried dozens of them and it seems none of them work anymore. There’s no file management, no freedom of use of the device, everything is heavily restricted. All I fucking want is to be able to take pictures, download books, and download music/YouTube links without jumping through 1000 hoops, but clearly apple doesn’t want anyone ever enjoying such simple pleasures without first buying apple TM headphones and subscribing to apple TM streaming service.

Is there any way to get anything good out of this phone or should I try getting a refund? It’s on IOS 12, can I jailbreak it?

Hello lads, would love your input on a new phone I'm considering. I've been using a Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro for about 2 years, and its on its last legs. Fingerprint scanner works for multiple fingers when I've only configured one, screen sometimes just doesnt turn on, lock button doesnt work 50% of the time etc. Just dying.
I was wanting to go all in and get an actual flagship phone for once, was looking at the S8 Plus or Note 8, but the whole knox switch idea puts me right off since I want to stick a custom ROM on there.
Are there any flagship phones you lads would recommend that don't cost an arm and a leg?

So my already shitty Samsung S7 with an already dying battery is now dying ridiculously fast and only charging under "fast charging (i.e. when plugged into a wall) but consumes battery so fast that charging through a laptop or external battery is just too slow.

I have tried setting it to allow NO background processes, made sure to shut off all non-essential processes running, optimized the battery, made sure there's plenty of hardware space, turned off Bluetooth and location tracking and anything else that could be using lots of battery but it STILL does this.

However, I just considered that having like 10 different home screens each with a different background image thanks to "Multi-picture wallpaper" app, all running in Nova launcher, might be the culprit. I was basically designing new home screens for fun and then just adding them on as second or third homescreens to set as "main" when I'm bored. Weird, sure, but is this possibly the reason?

tl;dr: Could having too many home screens with separate images be the reason for my incredibly fast battery draining problem recently?

>> No.68184917

>Which one is better?
Pocophone is better in pretty much every way.

>> No.68184937

I doubt Nova is the culprit, you'd see it high up in the battery usage if it was. Shouldn't be hard to test though, switch back to the stock launcher temporarily and see if things change.

>> No.68184953

I doubt it. I'm running a setup with multiple home screens that is constantly using the gyroscope to rotate parts of the wallpaper and I haven't noticed any increase in the battery use.
In your case it would be easy to test if it's the app, check in the battery settings the stats to see what is draining the power. Alternatively switch to the stock wallpaper for a day or two to see how it behaves. You can keep the Nova launcher during that time, that one is definitely not your culprit. Another thing you could do is install the Accubattery app and let it monitor for a week or two. In case none of the apps stand out it could show you if the problem is the battery itself.

>> No.68184971

Not Nova particularly. Nova doesn't allow different photos to be set as different home screens. I'm using Nova, yes, but unlike with just Nova, when I turn on my home screen and swipe left or right, a completely new image becomes the home screen page. And if I double tap any of those images a new image also becomes the home screen. My home screens have become the photo gallery, basically, with each home screen page being a different album and double tapping being used to flip through the album.

Is that likely to be the problem? Like is my phone doing something to all these screens at once or something?

It also has a bigger battery, 4000mah vs 3000mah. Considering batteries lose capacity over time from use, having a bigger battery will give you better longevity in the sense that it'll last longer before the loss of capacity makes you have to either replace the phone or the battery.

Both good points, although I would hope Anon is willing to give Lineage a go down the line if whatever phone they go with is supported at that point.

Have a look at Oneplus 6 teardowns. It has gaskets on everything to make it sealed from water. Zack from JerryRigEverything said it has "the same protection that other IP67 phones have", which is 30 mins of water immersion in up to 1 meter of depth.
