p20 pro looks almoust good what you think guys?
I'm on the Galaxy S7 and I'm due an upgrade in June. I will be skipping the S9 and either look at the Pixel 3 later in the year or sit out until the Galaxy SX/S10... Whatever they call it.
I am in dire need of a new smartphone. My Lumia 725 barely manages everyday tasks.
So a good, medium class smartphone with a decent camera, around $ 200? Maybe a bit more, if it's worth.
Personally literally just moved from a Samsung A5 2016 to a Huawei P20 lite - I love the Huawei, it's a decent chunck faster then the Samsung, and I love the screen (although it does lack that true black that OLED has).
Was initially looking at the A8 2018 - which is quite a bit faster then the P20, but honestly for all the things I do with my phone (mini PC's these days) the P20 is MORE then enough and it's super snappy all around, I don't play games on my phone so don't need more GPU power.
Happy with my choice, wonder what I'll choose in 2 years time
Just wanted to pick something different then Samsung or Apple this time around lol
I went from a Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 in 2016 to an Essential Phone last month. The Essential Phone is actually pretty great, it's quite the underrated phone. Now, given, it is pretty weak in the camera department. However, since it's better than the cameras in my previous phones, I can live with that. Getting it for C$500 is quite the steal for high end specs.
I just got Nokia8 today , but I will swap for S9
Mobile carrier has a promotion 400e for a phone and this will substract from S9 price, 15e + what ever the phone, normally its 28e (2yr contract), so minus that 400e, its maybe extra 13e
When I looked at this video it was the first that died and I want more stamina., the rest by S9 is better too, even camera.. Saw gsmarena review and nokia8's camera is just average, that Carl zeiss isn't helping it.
and normal S9 in-between without nokia
Although that LGV30 looks good too, maybe a bit wide? but the store doesn't have any special promotion for it, I think.
I already bought a Nokia 6.1 (2018) with Android 8.1 Oreo.
I just bought the Huawei Mate 10 Pro dual sim, 6Gb ram 128gb, WOW, Super fast.
Amazing OLED screen and camera. No $hitty notch, almost 82% screen to body ratio, sexy beast.
Huawei the BEST for battery life, really amazing. Quite a lot better than the rest:
My bro offered me new Xperia XZ1 for 295$.
Got the Nokia 7+ a few weeks ago. Updated to 8.1 directly. Came from an S7e. The N7+ has an amazing battery life. Also supports QC3.0.
True, i have the Mate 9 and nothing can beat it in terms of battery life outside of it's bigger brother, Mate 10 Pro.
I think Huawei has the best phones, P20 Pro Mate 10 Pro, Mate 9, honor... i wanna try Pixel phone but not at current prices and features, it might have the best camera but the rest is pretty average(outside of performance and updates), might grab the Mate 20 Pro
Agreed. The flagship Huawei range is just as good as any other brand. It is on par with other high end flagships only costing slightly less. Great for value.
And yes, I was interested, really interested in the Pixel 2 XL as it ticks most of the boxes. Perfect size screen, Fantastic quality display, stereo speakers, Snapdragon 835, build quality and superb camera.
Two things however made me change my mind. Price. Absurd, for 30% or so cheaper you can get something very similar. It is quite expensive. Second is the battery. For a massive 6'' panel they only managed to squeeze in a 3500 mAh battery? I've read too many complaints of users bragging about poor battery life. Having a decent battery is one of the most important aspects of a phone and the Pixel series is no where near as good as other devices. It's average. Shame.
Otherwise it's almost perfect. Should the battery have been slightly bigger and priced slightly less, I may of purchased one.
That said, I'm sure the next Pixel release will improve it's battery and offer something bigger. Price. I'm sure it'll still be expensive!
Guys, i am lost. I was almost set on the Nokia 6 2018, but heard that camera is mediocre at best. Just a big NO - i want a good camera. Now, i moved to Motorola G6 2018, but the same thing about the camera.
I want USB type C, good camera, decent battery and a smartphone with updates for as long as possible, within the 250€-300€ bracket.
Nokia 7+ camera is very good but not excellent. For a mid ranger it is decent. To my surprise even the Nokia 8 Sirocco was not much different. For a flagship I was surprised yet disappointed. Camera is good but compared to other flagships was not in the same league.
Huawei Mate 10 series, Samsung S8, S9, LG v30, etc all had better cameras...
Both the N7+ and N8 Sirocco share the same camera HW/SW, so hench the small difference. But I agree, the camera is decent, not excellent. My old S7e makes better pictures/video's. Also to note that both the S7(e) and S8(+) also share the same camera HW/SW.
I've never seen S9's camera quality so I can't judge on that.
That nokia looks a bit like my oldies galaxy alpha, minus "infinity edge", which is a good thing.
if it had silver frame and dark grey cover it would be ideal,.
Nokia8 needs refresh like that too, 5.8 " display - low bezels, max up to 148mm. Not sirocco, or is sirocco nokia8 (2018)?
Went ahead an bit the bullet, got the S8 on AT&T. A year late, but a great device still. Got an unbranded odin recovery build on XDA for Oreo, so no AT&T bloat!
I am still undecided what to get. In the end - the social price we pay, to be always online, interconnected takes a toll on me.
Sometimes I wonder: I managed to survive without social apps until they embbeded theyself in the fabric of our lives, why I wouldn't survive from now on?
