It seems to me that the whole folding gimmick is good for one of two things
>more pocket space
>can 'put away' phone on the desk, in formal meeting situations
either way, both problems aren't all that useful in solving
and all this work into making a phone that folds because it's not considered good enough to jimmy two screens into a flip phone
it seems to me like this phone is going to be fiddled with a hell of a lot more, which means idiots will break them quicker or the phone will have a shorter shelf life

Where were you when smartphone camera sensors were almost as big as point and shoot ones?

>> No.74075848

Why is the smallest sensor called 1.2" and the biggest sensor 1"? Isn't 1.2" the bigger number?

It's not 1.2, it's 1/1.2, which is less than 1.

>> No.74075998

Since my old phone stopped detecting my SIM, I had to get a new device and it came down to either the craptastic underwhelming hardware (aside from Soli sensor and a few other things) of the Pixel 4 XL and the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren 5G (which is pretty great except for lacking wireless Qi charging). So I picked up the latter, which is available in the states only through TMobile.

Overall I'm still getting used to it, but its kinda crazy that, despite being hackable/rootable etc... there's a huge production to unlock the bootloader. First, you need to have the SIM unlocked - otherwise the dev menu will simply grey out the whole option for OEM Unlock! That means a call to TMO - thankfully they were willing to permanently unlock the phone for me. After that, then I could go to dev menu and hit OEM unlock, connect t ADB etc... but you can't just push the command, instead it requires a process at - https://www.oneplus.com/unlock_token - where you have to put in certain data and then TMO/1+ sends you a custom file that you can use to finally unlock the bootloader.

Its a little hassle if you're in a hurry, but I can at least report the process worked. A few days after my initial request (they say around a week when you submit) they delivered my file and it did allow for the unlock. I don't remember this back when I had my last OnePlus device back in the stone ages of the OnePlus One, but it seems this process has been common for the last several generations. Its a bit of a bother but at least it worked out and I still didn't have to pay the whole thing up front and retain the ability to swap my device if some phone i really like shows up later without having to finish paying it off etc.

Oh yeah, the 5G is a band 71 (I think) 600mhz type and it is definitely faster than typical LTE and has really, really good coverage per tower.

iPhone XS

More like an upgraded XR. I think people really fell for the marketing tactic of Apple. The thing is, for the past 3 years now at least, phones have been powerful enough. You would not notice the performance difference in day-to-day use between a 2017 iPhone X and a 2019 11 Pro.
So Apple decided to put good enough hardware in their cheaper model, so they can sell it with the "look, its just as powerful, we are such good guys" marketing. The problem is, they cheap out on the thing that actually matters. The entire front of the phone is just a big screen. It's the only I/O on the phone. Don't listen to the YouTubers who say "they can barely tell a difference", it's a day and a night difference. Go to a local Apple Store or any store that has iPhones and compare it yourself. The screen in the regular 11 and XR is absolute dogshit. They cheap out on the most important thing in the phone and sell it with the other hardware improvements, where the difference is barely noticeable.

It's just my personal opinion though, but if I'm already paying such a high price for a phone, I would not be happy with a gimped model. The XS is the last year's flagship model, it is fast enough already, it has a stainless steel case instead of cheap looking plastic, it has leagues better display, almost the same battery life.
The only thing the 11 has as an advantage is the night time camera option (and that is just software anyway) and the wide lens.
Go to a store and try it yourself if you can though

>> No.74087003

tell me about lg phones

>> No.74087170

That might be true, I haven't been in an Apple Store for years but they tend to remove everything related to older products even on the internet.
Definitely compare the two models though. Local carriers or a mediamarkt or something will most definitely have them. Put the brightness to 100% on both and compare with and without TrueTone.

For battery life there are youtube vids that compare every model, although they don't usually show the battery condition in the beginning. Personally I had mine for around 5 months now the the battery is still in 100% condition and its the cheapest and easiest part of replace fortunately.
You can get two days out if you just listen to music, make some calls and only browse the net for around 5 hours in 2 days but realistically you want to charge it every day. The only exception when it comes to battery life is the 11 Pro Max because they had room for battery and the current gen chip is the most power efficient. For the rest its gonna be the standard charge it at the end of the day cycle.

There is no way the iPhone X has a better battery life than the XS. They either used different versions of iOS, had something in the background, had a non 100% battery for test, opened different sites with varying level of ads, etc.
