Don't like my Nexus 5x, anything faster? - Page 2

Well yeah, $650 isn't extraordinary for a flagship with a great camera and top of the line specs. Well that is if they did indeed nail the camera. And you don't have to deal with the software nonsense of the other flagships from the likes of Samsung or LG.

The only thing I don't really like about the Pixel is that huge empty chin bar, they could have at least put optional capacitive buttons or a front facing speaker there.

I preordered the Pixel yesterday.

OnePlus 3 is $350. 6gb memory, and no bloatware. Snapdragon 820 which is going to be just as fast, slightly lowered clocked. I'll save $300 over a slightly faster SoC, not as great camera, but have everything else.

I am still rocking a LG G3 and it has served me well. The sim card slot is a little broken at this point and the screen is a bit darker than my liking. I've been eyeing the Oneplus 3. The LG G5, V11? or V20 I can't remember, Galaxy S7, and some other flagships have the newer chipset.


More expensive phones tend to have better cameras though(which is what i'm in the market for now) thumb.gif

I have an LG G4, worst POS technology i have ever owned. Stay away from these phones! Laggy straight out of the box.

(Based on a comparison to my last smart phone which was 4 or 5 years old when I accidentally killed it with the tyres of my car.)

Maybe move to an AOSP rom. That's one of the benefits to LG is they have unlockable bootloader if you please. I'm actually eyeballing the V20 now, or the Zenphone. So many good choice...
