Sony Xperia XZ2

I use a OnePlus One. Since they removed the headphone jack from their latest models, I won't be getting a new one from OnePlus.



BLU Life One X. Have had it for a few years now and while it's nothing special it does the trick. Paid $200 on Amazon brand new shortly after it's release and it's worth every penny. The only issue I have with it is with updates because the battery life can vary greatly. At worst it can be 3 hrs with heavy use and best closer to 6 hours heavy use. In an average use case it just get's me through an entire day with a poor update. Whenever a poor update leads to a much shorter battery life they tend to release another update soon enough to get it to a much more reasonable level, so it's never been a major problem. Otherwise it does everything good enough and has held up.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

Random Generic Slabphone 2018
(Xperia XZ2 Compact)

Was forced to grab one when the Vita browser finally gave up. Biggest waste of money I have ever had to spend on an electronic devices, but it became a necessity, so I had no choice. Every day I pray an Announcement will come out of Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony, Google, or Apple, that a decent gaming Phone is on the way, but all we get is Switch Lite, and more useless Slabphones. Every time people bring up Mobile Phones, I can't help but think how the market has been getting worse every year for nearly a decade. Each time I check back in, things have only gotten worse. Truly a sad time for anyone with an on the go lifestyle.

What's your ideal gaming phone like? Android controllers are many and you can also connect PS4/X1 controllers to iPhones natively without friction. Been playing Hyper Light Drifter on my iPad using an X1 controller wirelessly, no workarounds needed.

Ideally, a Switch Lite with 4G, Calling Texting, and a Web Browser. Or, another device in the form factor of the Switch Lite/PlayStation Vita from Sony or Microsoft that runs on the same base level OS, and offers a Shared Library of Games and Apps with the PS4/5 or XB1/4, along with 4G, Texting, Calling, and Web Browsing.

Basically, I want the same experience I have on my home console from my Mobile Phone. We were already there with the 3G Vita in 2012. Vita was able to Play games Online, Stream Music, Movies, and TV Shows, Make and Recieve Phone Calls, Browse the Web, Remote Play PS4 games, and Play PS3 Games via PS Now. I want the next generation of that experience, an all in one Gaming Phone. The Mobile version of what Consoles have become in the Home.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Ah, a fellow BLUfer. I had the Life One X as well. No complaints other than the battery, like you said. Still wasn't the worst battery I've had on a phone, just kinda in the average zone. Sadly, after about a year or so, the mic died on me.

Then, I got a good deal on an Alcatel Idol 4s, like $220 for the phone and VR headset. Loved the dual speakers and sharp display. But, the battery crapped out on me in a year or so. Got the Vivo + and have been very satisfied with it.



Pixel 3 xl. I like it a lot.



Looks like I should have chosen Sony over HTC for the poll. Oh well.

Nokia 6.1 There are only two viable ecosystems (Android and iOS), and of them, only Android is somewhat open, so Android it is. However, Android phones have this problem where they have terrible support in terms of updates. Android One is currently the best solution to that that I'm aware of, which really restricts my options. My favourite option from the Android One phones was Nokia 6.1 I do like it quite a bit, although its lack of a notification LED is annoying. Still, I've learned to live with it, although I would prefer to have one.

Android still sucks because of how system updates go, but options are few.

It's basically the same reason as to why I choose the 7 Plus. I bought it during a promo at which point it's price was about 30% off, making the phone widely better than anything else at it's price range during that time.

It also doesn't have a notification LED, but I love how the screen shows the text for a couple seconds on any news or mail I got.
