Congrats!

I've realised small phones are not for me. I have the iPhone 7 but I am still using my old Windows phone more. Glad I took out an early upgrade option which means I will be able to upgrade to iPhone 8 Plus (assuming they still do Plus next time out) after 1 year.

So I've done it. I got Google Contacts to finally sync my Outlook address book, so they're all there. There's still the occasional bug when it comes to initials (listing that contact twice with the periods and without). I also got Google Camera and Photos to back up all media to my OneDrive, so now I'm good to go.

Now I've been going back and forth on this subject. Should I stick with the stock Google Keyboard or download a third-party one? I'm leaning towards SwiftKey as it's owned by MS now since I'm on an MS ecosystem kick, but I'm also interested in Fleksy.

I've used Swype, Swiftkey, and Google, but go back to Swype every time.

On another note, I still have my LG G3. I'm considering the LG V20 or Google Pixel XL. The XL makes the most sense, but it's design is bland on the front. The only design aspect of the phone that I do like is the wedge shape which allows the camera to remain flush with the back.

I would be leery of the V20. LG's phones have been suffering from hardware failure resulting in a bootloop with the G4, V10, and G5. I'm not saying the V20 would have it, but the fact it happened to so many of its flagships is discouraging. Be careful with the Pixels as the glass window on the back is known to be very fragile as in putting on a tabletop from a few inches could cause it to crack. I'm sure that will be fixed with future production batches.

As for Swype, I've been hearing mixed reviews on it. Some reviews on YouTube think the newer versions are laggy.

LG V30 will probably be my next phone, looks to have everything I want in a phone.

That Note8 is ridiculously expensive

LG V30 is definitely going to be my next phone. Just sucks they got rid of the ticker on top.

How long should people wait before buying the Note 8?

I figured we'll know if they're dangerous after the first week?

Probably a month. That's how long it took the Note 7 reports to pop up, right?

I'm very tempted to upgrade to a V20 from my Nexus 6P cause I would be paying the same amount when I bought my Nexus new, but part of me wants to wait for the Pixel...

Moto G5S Plus, look it up. Bang for your buck it's hands down the best budget phone out there. Unless you are modding out the ROM on any of these top tier phones your spending tons of extra cash on features you're not even using plus bloatware.

No one needs a 700.00 phone to listen to remixed versions of Fallout Boy.

I see everyone is losing their **** on the supposed leaks that the next iPhone will feature a bezel-less design. I'll believe it when I see it.

So Xiaomi released the Mi Mix 2 and it's... underwhelming.



I would still buy the original over this one.
