    ehh, you already want to carry around spares, why not?
    It's way more annoying to have to wait for a phone to charge from an external than just slap a new battery in and go on your way. Internal batteries are smaller, also. The 3000mAh battery in the G4 is about as thick as a half dollar. Easy to port around. Most external batteries are larger and somewhat more bersome.

    Just got myself the Nexus 6P. More than happy with it.

    If the Pixel C wasn't utter I might have targeted that as my next purchase.

    How do you guys like it so far?


    Haven't made the switch from my S5 because :

    - water resistant and dust proof
    - removable battery
    - extra storage
    - people make fun of the ugly back, but its texture makes it really grippy


    I do like some of the features of the S6 though:

    - better camera for night shots and OIS (the S5 takes great daytime pics though)
    - better fingerprit scanner
    - OS theming : Lollipop and its white background ; I had to download 3rd party dialer, SMS, file manager apps with dark theme options, because the stock ones have ugly/blinding white backgrounds


    Other thant that, the S5 is still a great phone

    I actually have an s6 personally and an s5 for work
    The s6 is great for all the reasons that you mentioned and up until a couple of weeks ago I would not have recommended it because of battery, but now, all of a sudden it lasts all day from about 7am and still has about 30% when I get home from work at ~6:30. No change in use, they must have fixed something. Now I'm pretty happy with it. I still want to go back to a nexus, but not as badly.

    The s5 dialer is . I don't take pictures with it. I haven't even tried the fingerprint thing because someone told me it's terrible. The s6 is great for this. I use hangouts for messaging.. Other than that, I've left the s5 pretty much alone. I really only use that phone for mobile email. Most of the time I give my personal phone or for work purposes.

    Thanks

    Did you recently get a firmware update?

    As for the S5 fingerprint scanner it's not that bad tbh
    The S6 one is just more convenient

    I use ExDialer pro with a dark material theme lol

    Iphone 6s. I've had it for a couple months now, it's alright. I think I'm only going to keep it for a year, then get the new Nexus next year.

    So I scratched the ing lens to my camera and now it won't focus. However, I found out my upgrade is right around the corner...so it looks like I'll be getting the G4.

    Thought about getting a refurbished S7 tbh. Still cant justify the price since the iPhone 7 is my primary phone.

    what plan?

    I'm waiting for boxing day deals for an s8 or pixel 2. In store credit going to bw huge in best buy or the source.

    A 300 dollar in store will make me get a switch.

    It's 0 bucks with Robbers , had some balance left on my contract but a friend of friend works at Robbers, going to cancel the balance fees.

    Btw Pixel has no headphone jack.

    Also, Bixby voice is cool tbh

    wifey needs a new phone. she's been attached to her bum-ass LG phone which is already falling apart 2 years after getting it . we're not under contract (i would never finance a phone, that's just code for buying something i can't afford)

    we've been with AT&T, currently paying about ~100/mo for our wireless/data plan between the two of us. no issues with the service, so no reason to switch out at this point. seeing that they currently have a BOGO deal on newer phones. i've had my iphone 6 for over 4 years now. still runs fine, but getting a newer phone wouldn't hurt.

    only thing is, the BOGO deal requires you do be on an unlimited data plan, which for me would cost ~40/mo more than i'm paying now. granted, a "free" phone would basically make up for the first ~20 months of those increased payments, after which i'm stuck with an unlimited plan, when we barely use data (we're sharing 5GB/mo now, and have no issues with it)

    thinking of just buying her a phone and being done with it, but then again while my phone is doing fine now, i'd probably be needing an upgrade in the next year or two anyway

    edit: if i'm understanding it right, you need to add a new line as well? that

    I switched out AT&T to a pre-paid for $40/mo (with autopay), and just buy the phones outright whenever I feel like doing so. Barely use any data, and if I go over whatever limit, it just throttles. No contract either.

    I've an iPhone X, so, barring the battery swap in a year or so, I don't think I'll be upgrading any time soon. I also have a Xs Max with Verizon from work, and it's basically the same phone, tbh, just a bit larger...

    Didn’t even know that was a thing. Seems like going prepaid is just objectively cheaper. From quick research main caveats are you can’t finance a phone (which i wouldn’t do anyway) and that supposedly you have lower priority for data when it bottlenecks, but we’re fairly exclusively on WiFi with the exception of using Navi on the road which barely uses data. Thanks for heads up.

    Will look into buying at the store or through some service like Swappa, and ultimately switch to prepaid

    New phones are the biggest waste of money. Everyone wants to have the latest shiny new toy. But the hardware and software is pretty much the same as the model before. As long as you don't clutter up your phone with needless apps, that Iphone3 you had years ago will do the same stuff as your brand new $1000 Iphone 10. But you've now spent probably $5000 to have all of the latest versions.
