    Never have and never will give a dime to the slave masters at Apple, and my upgrade is around the corner...

    No bias, just opinion...

    An LG G6 or the S8?

    Haven't had anything but either brand sans the short time I had a Moto X (really awesome and quick phone) and the G2 was probably my favorite smartphone of all time, but which do the hardcore techies think would be better?
    G6 is nice but I would take the S8

    However the V30 is around the corner, it seems to be the real deal..

    They're FUCKING PHONES you tool. The fact that you overcompensate for your tiny cock by debating utterly meaningless minutiae like this is mind boggling. Samsung and Apple both make amazing devices, just buy one and use it, don't let your entire fucking existence revolve around if your phone is better than everyone else's.
    This is my opinion as well. All I care about is battery life but since I have 3 22000mAh battery packs with me when I travel, it's not an issue. Carrier is much more important than device. Right now AT&T is my carrier but that's because of coverage area where I travel. I hate new phones, hate new icons when the phone updates.

    Did you see you can now buy Microsoft's answer to the Apple Watch again?

    I bought one of those for $120. Sold it the day before it arrived for $245.

    I loved my G4 before it died (boot loop). So I bought a G5 a couple months ago and like it also. I'm not one to pay full price for the latest phone and I refuse to lease them through my carrier so I've been buying phones a generation or so old when I need to.

    I buy cheap phones. Fuck having the newest phone. Right now I have a k7, I think.

    I've had the 4s, S4, g3, g4 and the s7 edge all when they were new. Fuck having the newest, most fancy phone. The things depreciate faster than a car.

    I can live with this phone, have it break and get another one, or another best iteration of a phone that's about 120 bucks.

    With the monthly "installment" on the phone, my monthly bill will be $60 all unlimited with ATT, which is pretty solid, each line on my plan is anywhere from 50-70, all unlimited, which is like Sprint rates, so having a gen off is cool with me as well. Probably gonna roll with the LG since I don't experience slowdown after mandatory updates.

    That's exactly what I paid for my G5 (maybe 125). And I honestly would've held on to my G4 for a hell of a lot longer had it not died. I've given up trying to keep up with technology, because like you said the shit depreciates fast.

    Yeah...I can't see paying out the ass for the latest/greatest when last year's phone does all I need it to do.
    And seems this is the crux of the entire debate.
    What one needs and/or wants it to be capable of.

    Phones are mobile and I don't have to remember numbers. Have a camera so I can take minimalist pictures of important data/info in journals. I don't wanna watch sports, play games, or read anything lengthy on a tiny screen. Don't want a signal when I am in the middle of nowhere because I am in the middle of nowhere for a reason.

    I have a friend who constantly sends me pictures of food. I get messages on minutiae others should be able to figure out on their own, leave me alone. Deleting like a madman. I sound like an old fart throwback. Fckn sit down to eat so we can hash out a problem and everyone has their damn phone on the table. I say get the phones off the damn table. Concentrate. One ONE thing. Look at me in the face (it's not pretty) I need an answer in your eyes.

    Been using a 5S forever... battery is starting to die though, that's probably why I'll switch this year (although I could probably change the battery relatively easily).

    I have a Moto x pure. Bought it for new for $200 over a year ago. No bloatware, just stock Android. Does everything I need it to. I hardly download any apps. I dont do FB, Twitter, etc.

    It does the job.

    Eh. Stupid attention whore wannabe YouTuber, with fake crying. Even in her apology video she's talking about YT views, not taking any personal responsibility, and throwing her dad under the bus.

    Father deserves it for raising such a cunty daughter imo

    Removing the headphone jack is still one of the most idiotic, most unnecessarily inconvenient things I seen in a while for tech. I wouldn't buy a phone with my own money that doesn't have one.

    Pretty happy with my iPhone 8 and Beats X, tbh. Don't miss the jack at all. The instant pairing when they turn on works seamlessly.

    Yup that instant pairing chip is awesome tbh.

    But the sound quality with BT is not as good as with wired headphones.

    And I love having options.
    I do prefer BT earbuds for the gym.
    Also when one forgets to charge his wireless earphones, he can grab his wired ones.

    I love BT 5.0 on my Galaxy S8 though, playing music on multiple BT speakers simultaneously is dope

    I really only use earbuds when I am exercising, tbh. I still have my old pair of buds, they work great and I have an adapter but haven't had to use it yet.

    I have two bluetooth headphones (one with NC), but I had that option before anyways w/ a jack. If removing the jack had the intention of trying to push some wireless revolution...you'd think that they would be including AirPods in the iPhone box and not wired earbuds.

    I work in a open concept area so I'm not going to wear the over the ear headphones and just prefer the wired headset (that Apple provides). Ditto for traveling at airports/planes. The worst thing is realizing you had 10% battery and you have to choose between listing to music/video or charging your phone...clearly I'm in the minority.

    Also as lefty said, BT sound quality still is quite inferior.

    That wired headset makes my ears hurt after a few minutes. I work from home, so I rarely use earbuds when working. If I were in an office, I would for sure.

    The Apple earbuds now surprisingly fit OK for me (and I have strange ear canals).

    Just bought a lightning splitter (company card, lol). It's annoying to have a second dongle now. Again, they start providing Bluetooth earbuds w/ the iPhone and I'll shut up. But until they do, their best reason they've said is 'it frees up space' which isn't good enough.

    Beats most overated brand in a long time. Of course you use a crapple product also.

    You're obviously a novice. The w1 chip pairs instantly when they are turned on with any newer apple device. there is no other reason to have the beats x, and nothing works as well on the market pairing wise. I got my iPhone 8 for $550 unlocked, brand new.

    Still says nothing about being an overrated brand. And I really don't care about the cost of an iPhone.
