if it wasn't because of the apple app store and itunes, i would have jumped to android yrs ago. I switched to android once, and i hated how messy and crappy apps for android are, they are so low quality compare to apps in ios app store. And some apps doesn't have android version. To be honest, i am so sick and tired of iphone's design and the look of the ios. But now i bought the homePod, i guess i can never jump the waggon again.
Ugh, great phone ruined by custom ROM bullshit !
If they want to really penetrate the Western / European market they need to do one thing:
- Ship with the stock android, keep your BS custom ROM for the Asian market, they like it we do NOT !
REALLY disappointed by the lack of some basic features on this phone, features easily found on other phones as old as 5 years.
1: Unable to program a custom voice activation phrase ("Hey google" all day long? Yuck SMH)
2: "Ok Google" WILL NOT WAKE UP PHONE when it is on screen lock. This effectively make hands-free use impossible.
3: The voice command "take a picture" when using google assistant opens camera app, but takes no picture. Again, this eliminates hands-free use for this app.
Other than that this is a great phone, But I mean really? The google apps here have taken a step backward. I was really counting on this device to replace my Motorola moto x pure, which did all of these things easily.
I have the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 with 6GB ram and i am more than happy with it. I've had it for approx 1 year and it hasnt missed a beat. As i keep it in a leather case i really couldnt guess what would be any different to this phone except the Android 7.1 where mine is just Android 7. and it has an extra 2GB ram. All in all my phone is just great and it does what it says on the tin :-) [EDIT] .... BTW my phone only cost £129.99 with 64GB storage and 6GB ram, and a snapdragon 825 cpu.
Been watching your videos for more than a year just only today I realised I forgot to subscribe haha. Now I subscribed! Can we request how you plan and create this videos? Where do you get the devices from?
.....THANK you from BAVARIA! ...what are your top 5 smarphones in terms of image quality and in terms of price and power today? (including also the chinese brands etc.). I mean overall price ranges. ...Best Regards
glad no dual camera because those dual cameras like on my iPhone 7 Plus make zoom macro photography closeups impossible as the telephoto and digital zooms argue with each other when zoomed in to small objects like a dragonfly or a small buddha amulet, resulting in the image jumping left to right and the telephoto takes over and blurs it completely unless i move too far away to get that macro closeup i need.. screw dual cameras.. everyone is into selfies and phots of friends from a meter or 5 away.. but i am a pro who needs to take very closeup images of details of small products .. no dual camera for me.. no instagram posing in yoga pants, no selfies, no filters that blur the clarity and real colour of the image.. i need purist
So if I buy one from China with plans on using it in the US and China, would i be able to use verizon sim card in this? low 400s is a really incredible deal especially because I'll be living in china for a while
