Where you heard about the Pixel!??

Bought Nubia Z7 from china, gonna receive it in 2017 :-).
http://www.gsmarena.com/zte_nubia_z7-6490.php
It's ex flagship device that was sold for ~600$+ when released in Q3 2014 now you can buy it for 129$ including free worldwide shipping, really cheap for 2K 5.5"/3GB Ram/OIS IMX214 camera/AKM Dac and more ;-)
I had the Z7 mini since 2014 till last month when I sold it, was really happy with it(payed 300$ on BF 2014).

Waiting for Nokia with what they planned to release this year.
Until then, my Lumia 730 just works, going strong for more than 2 years.
I am in no hurry, and this is good.

I am still using a Note 4 here lol. Currently running Stock ROM with internal apps ripped out of the ROM so its running super smooth. Couple that with a 64gb card and internal 32gb im more than happy.

As of right now i am not sure which upgrade will be a good one. I bought a Moto Z Play

http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_moto_z_play-8310.php

for my mom and shes loving it. It is actually quite a nice phone and is running stock android i believe.

Pixel 2 probably. Depends if they fix the shortcomings of the first pixel. If not I might look at the galaxy S8, note 7 successor of the Oneplus 4.

What are you waiting for? BBOS is dead.... Blackberry has jumped on the Android bandwagon now. If I could find a Blackberry device with build quality like the Z10, I'd jump on it. However, to me the Priv felt cheap compared to the Z10.

Yes, BB10 is dead. All the QNX staff was let go except for the auto market and what not. Not caring for the PRIV is why I am still using the Z10. Hopefully the Mercury will be a different story. Not sure what to thing about TCL's manufacturing ability. Given that the TV is android based, do not really see myself going iOS. Already have an iPOD touch for that.

I liked BB10....it just lacked apps and features and I wasn't willing to stick around and see if the bugs got fixed. Especially not after the broken promises made to PlayBook users.

When did this happen? I can't say i'm shocked to read that bit of info. RIM has been struggling for a very long time.

Also, I was going to wait for the iPhone 8 Plus. Because of the company my wife works for, I was able to get a discount on the 7 Plus. So, I basically got me a free phone today. Which I couldn't pass that offer up.

The Blackberry Priv runs Android....
http://us.blackberry.com/smartphones...fications.html

Android still isn't as secure as BBOS was though....even on the Priv

Blackberry phones will no longer be made by Blackberry....instead, TCL will be producing Blackberry branded phones.

looks a bit ugly..

EDIT: on 2nd thought, just saw its size spec and that looked good, 140mm with 5.7" display.
http://www.gsmarena.com/exclusive_sa...news-22771.php


Quote:
The smaller Galaxy S8 is 140.14mm x 72.20 x 7.30mm, slightly shorter and thinner than the current S7, but wider. Actually, we need to be comparing it to the S7 edge as the screen size works out to 5.7” (again, not accounting for the side curves). That means the Galaxy S8 will have a larger screen than the S7 edge while being about the size of the S7! These readings come close to the 5.7”/6.2” dimensions rumored in December.

Yes, the phones are wider, but Samsung did everything it could to minimize that - the yellow portion of the S8 schematic is the screen. There’s barely any side bezel to be seen. And we’re digging the thin top and bottom bezels.






meh I was set on new A3 2017, but now idk anymore, I saw its missing HDR and ios - image stabilization? that would be a real turn off..

might just stick with this alpha some more.. Although im starting to hate battery more and more, since i use the phone a lot lately.. and MM 6.0.1 is nowhere on the horizon, yet..

A lot must happen before I buy Samsung again. The original Samsung Galaxy S I had was pretty horrible experience and today it's pretty much unusable. If I upgrade this year it will either be new Nokia, OnePlus or Huawei/Honor. Though, my Honor 6 has aged very well and battery lasts for ~3 days in my use.

Closer to 6 (usually, from 100% to 0%), Android M is just as good if not even better than KitKat. Lollipop was a meh release.

Oh yeah.... Another reason why Samsung sucks is their software support. They stopped updating almost instantly and the latest firmware had really nasty battery drain bug. Honor (Huawei) updated this all the way from KitKat to Marshmallow.

I've had everything. Every phone has a flaw. 2017...Apple needs to blow me away to keep me stuck on their crippled assed ios.

I currently have an iPhone 6S Plus 128GB. Battery goes up and down as I do the beta ios updates.

It's just too locked down for me, even jail broken. Too many old fun games that are now completely dead since moving to ios10 as well.

This supposed epic 10th year anniversary hardware need be epic to keep me.

That being said, it seems like phones are just stagnant from all vendors. Gaming isn't growing like I thought it would on the devices - nothing past the 32bit garbage. The basic apps are on phones from 5 years ago. Kind of not starting to see a use in upgrading.

I had the Galaxy S6, I'll never own a Samsung device again in my life. That Wizard UI is so clunky and slow. The crapware on those phones...the software updates especially through verizon...are basically non-existent.

Then I still have my daily backup. The One plus for Windows 10 Mobile. Dual front speakers, BEAUTIFUL interface, but ZERO APPS. So help me, if windows mobile had snapchat and a few other key apps I'm forced into needing with a girlfriend I'd sit on that phone until a surface phone hit.

Has Android cleaned up its OS or is it still adding onto the original kernel? That was a gripe I had with Android through kitkat. Within a month or two, the phone starts to get bogged down. That is one plus to the iphone, it's performance remains consistent for me, regardless to how much crap I install and uninstall.

I have my eye on the iPhone 8+ - if I jump to Android, I'd like to see what a few companies put out before I jump on anything.
