Need a new phone


Recommended Posts

My samsung finally died on me, or rather the battery connector did, I have to spend 5 mins wiggling the charging cable to get it to work.


I kinda want to try a windows phone, but just a cheap one since the hardware is kinda bad value compared to something like a Motorolla Android.


I'm done with expensive phones. I tend to drop those and shatter the screen a day after I get them.  Bluetooth and mobile wifi hotspot functionality and the ability to get an ad blocker to actually work, including youtube. I guess most things could meet those criterea these days. Ohh and battery life. lots of that. 

Na na  na na  na na  ...

That is all.

I just bought my mother a Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime. It's a sub 200$ phone with great specs and a huge battery. The only bad thing about it is a mediocre camera (compared to flagship phones).

Well for the battery life, Nokia just relaunched the 3310. 2G only though, so usage is limited to places where the 2G networks haven't been decommissioned yet. :p


In all seriousness though, if you want a Windows phone it's really just a simple matter of looking up the Lumia range and going with the one with the highest model number that still fits your budget. Quick look on Amazon.de shows the top three sellers as the 650 at ~125EUR, the 55 at ~90EUR and the 950 XL at ~300EUR. Notebookcheck has reviews for the 550 and the 950 XL.

What specifically don't you like about it? I'm not a phone person, but still kinda curious as to why you think it's no good. :p

Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.


Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Although my phone is only 10 months old (young?) and I'm very happy with it I'm already thinking about upgrading. Why?


CHECK THIS OUT!!! *rock music blaring*




They're releasing the Xiaomi Mi 6 on April 28!!


Snapdragon 835, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, NFC, IR-blaster, dual camera (f1.8 wide angle and f2.6 2x optical zoom, 12 Mpixel), splash-proof, dual sim, 3350 mAh battery, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C 3.1 etc.


I really want a better camera. Everything else is great on my Mi 5 Pro, except the camera. It's good in daylight but becomes useless in low light situations.

Personally I'm waiting for Mi Mix 2. Weather I will buy when it comes out, that's another story.


edit: Oh and it's worth noting that they dumped the headphone jack for Mi 6

My work phone is a Windows phone my Nokia. It's a newer model and one of the more expensive ones so naturally I was excited to have it...


Unfortunately, turned out to be a nightmare. It's very limiting, even moreso than the iPhones. I hate it... lol

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?


What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.


Begone! Lest I draw my nail...
