>one plus 8 (Not pro, + CRAP front camera hole) = 699/700$
one plus 7T (with camera notch) = 499/500$
And there's the one plus 7T Pro (No visable front camera) = about 668$ (less renewed/used) and plus tax is going to be a little less then the oneplus 8

oneplus 7 (not T) pro with worse specs, and no visable front camera for about 575$ new/530$ renewed.
I guess go for the oneplus 7T with the notch?
Seems like might be the best.

Can someone who owns/owned/tried the Nokia 6.2 give me their opinion on it?

I gotta buy a new phone and there is a good deal on this one right now (around 200 bucks). I checked around reviews and most complain about the camera being slow.

I'm not one of those phone photographer fags, but I kinda of hate if the camera takes too long to capture a picture. Is it that much of an issue?

Based on oneplus 900$/1,000$ phone
Seems doubtfull in a few weeks, maybe between middle of summer or late fall. Possibly early winter after the new google pixel comes.
It's possible oneplus will be motivated to change because of 400$ iphone, but i doubt it.

You need a custom ROM and microG instead of gapps. And with that you've done pretty much the best you can on a smartphone. Here's more of what you can do:

Here in Australia you either have an iPhone or a Samsung. That's it. I sometimes see LGs but I rarely see anything else despite the fact that tonnes of different brands and models are sold here.

I was buying Google Pixels till the iPhone 11 came out, I've been liking it more than I expected. I'm also happier with the support since there's lots of cases, screen protectors and also I can go to the Apple store whenever I want if I have an issue. I also like that the trade in value remains high so I'll probably upgrade every year.

The Pixel always pissed me off since it was a $1200 phone (in dollarydoos) but only a few months later would be worth half that, then by the next year it would be worth $300 at best. Why the fuck do Pixels depreciate faster than a stone thrown into the ocean?

Is there anything more patrician than owning Apple stock? My portfolio is 90% AAPL and has earned me $5000 in value over the last year and another $5000 in dividends. After I built my $3000 monster PC in 2015 using iCuck donations I still haven't run into a single reason or need to upgrade it much less replace it.

Apple drones are just giving me their hard earned burgerbucks hand over fist for chink junk mass produced by the lowest bidder for the "privilege" of having a fruit logo on their fragile poorly made toys. With all the money they've generously donated to me, I can build a monster quad CPU quad GPU system every year if I felt like it.

This is what it's like to cuck or dominate someone isn't it? I can call Applecucks drones, retards, sheep, NPCs, whatever, and they'll continue to lick my feet and pay tribute to me. Feels good being a true patrician owning the only good Apple product, their stock.

On one hand the S10 has way better performance, better camera setup with OIS and better build quality, the A71 has a much bigger battery, flat display and will probably be supported slightly longer than the S10. I could just slap a battery case on the S10 but most of the cases I've seen are 4000mAh+ and turn the phone into a fucking brick when all I really need is a 2000mAh case which would probably be slim enough, yet those don't seem to exist.

Seems like a bug on your phone
I checked xda and nobody said anything bad so far, someone even mentioned battery life became a little better.
I think I'll let it update overnight

Red pill me. Why do I need to spend >$50 on a new phone? Can't I just buy a used LG G5 for daily needs? Is there something special about the new $1000 phones that I REALLY have to buy?

Unironically OP8. Never trust Exynos S20s.

Wait for the xperia 10 ii assuming you're not a gaymer. Decent SOC (SD665) decent Headcrone jack (24-bit/192kHz) decent battery (Li-Po 3600 mAh battery) 21:9 candy bar 6" screen (not big not small almost perfect) the perfect mid ranger unless something else comes out. Its coming out sometime between April and june. It also has waterproofing and an SD card slot. It really might not be half bad if Sony doesn't fuck up the DRM again.

Ideal (relatively realistic) smartphone for you lads?

>XZ2 Compact shape
>Samsung S9 front look
>SD865, maybe even SD855 if it lowers the price without the 5G bullshit
>at least 6GB of RAM
>dual speakers
>just one 108mp largest sensor camera with OIS on the back

That's all I ask for, lads.
