I must say I'm not always a fast adjuster to things (quite stubborn on some tech issues) but the different ways of using the phone have been very intuitive. I liked it a lot more after just a couple of days. For people who aren't too bothered about size and are really into iPhones I think it would be great.

My 6P died this week and I've been looking at specs on new phones. I'm surprised that a lot have microSD card support. It seemed like that was going to be dead 3 years ago. And budget phones like the Moto E4 and G5/Plus all seem really good. The only thing keeping me from buying them is the lack of NFC support. I prefer USB C now but would have lived with micro USB for their price points.

I think the One Plus 5T seems like a good device if you want flagship performance with some compromises:

What's the biggest and best Samsung/Android phone expected next year? I know next to nothing about these, have only ever had Windows Phones and iPhones. But the iPhone X is officially too small for me, especially with no battery pack cover available.

You're better off focusing on the next 6 months. The Galaxy S9 will probably be out in April/May and is rumored to have up to 90% screen-to-body ratio (ie small bezels). OnePlus MIGHT release a OnePlus 6 around June but the OnePlus 5T is another option to consider (FYI it won't work on Verizon). There's the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL which just came out but the former is considered the superior model despite the size.

Thanks for those tips

I've only just got the iPhone X and can't upgrade for another year.

I ended up buying a Pixel 2 to replace my bricked 6P. Google has a deal where you get a free Home Mini and $100 store credit with your order. I haven't bought a phone that was less than a year older since my Droid Bionic in 2011. I'm not thrilled about losing the 3.5mm jack but I don't listen to music that often anyway and can probably make due with an adapter.

How do you like it? I was looking at the Pixel 2/XL and LG V30 as potential upgrades.

My iPhone X came last Tuesday, a full month before it was expected. Face ID is alright for the most part but it doesnt work in the dark which is a big negative

So there are rumours of a 6.5 inch iPhone X Plus (might not be called that) next year. If that happens then I'll be swapping asap!

If there is some type of light in the room like from a window it might work half the time but pitch dark, it fails for the most part, which sucks bc I like to use my phone in bed

Yeah that would be a factor for me too. I'll have to check as I'm not sure. When it doesn't work straightaway I put the pin in and might not have noticed that it never works in dark.

It still hasn't shipped yet but I checked it out at a Verzion store. I liked the compact size compared to the XL (and the price difference helps). It also feels like a more solid design compared to the 6P, mine had a dent near the power button and the volume rocker dented as well which made it a little harder to press them. It's an issue from a design flaw.

Yeah I saw JerryRigEverything's video on the durability of the 6P and showed off it's main design flaw having to do with the use of plastic clips that holds the metal frame in place instead of screws... I think.

Sorry to hear that happened!


Cracking the screen is a terrible moment and can often result in rocking back and forwards in a foetal position if you're a phone junkie.

Is there a way to make the screen covering ad on this site go away permanently? Using Chrome on an Android phone.

Probably check either the Play Store or App Store or whatever you use and find one that seems pretty legit. I just use Adblock for Chrome since I have an android.

All of the ones I'm finding are browsers, not extensions.

Yeah there are no extensions in the Play Store from what I see, just Adblock's own browser.

Is it just the screen? You could get a replacement, but it would cost about $300 to do.

$300 sounds absolutely extortionate!
