Future proof!!!

How do you reset your phone if it starts to glitch and lock up if you cant remove the batt? Spend all day waiting for the batt to drain? Hella lame...

You never have to but somehow with a removable battery you always end up removing it to reset the phone.

wait I thought that 1/10 was the thing that shut down the Note 7?

The amount of brand loyalty these days, despite increased price and decreased features, is astounding.

Especially in a place like this with alleged computer enthusiasts on "The pursuit of performance". Did people forget these things are computers?

You're living in america

You guys have serious datacaps

Yet you don't see why not having an SSD card is an issue

I don't know if this is bait or not seriously

Here is a good example

32GB iphone 7 - £700
128GB iphone 7 - £850

If it had an SD card you would be paying 1/5th for 128GB extra storage than you are now.

And the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 are the highest performing options, followed by the HTC 10, LG G5, OnePlus 3, and Note 7. Rather poor argument there. $700 has been the norm, and aside from apple the only missing "feature" is the lack of removable battery. Meanwhile other features continue to be added and refined, like being freaking waterproof in the case of the S7.

But na, muh battery.


Anyway, this is a thread specifically about the Note 7. What would you like to talk about?

Anything one doesn't trust the cloud to hold, anything one's allotment of cloud storage couldn't hold, anything one needs to access/modify faster than one's connection allows, anything that would require prohibitive amounts of bandwidth to upload, anything one wants to be able to quickly access on other devices, etc...

A defective removable battery is more easily replaced than a phone with a defective non-removable battery.

Pretty much.

I've got a cheap decade-old dumb phone that I occasionally carry around. Structural integrity is about the only thing it's got, and there are remnants of paint on it from no less than four walls that I've thrown it through or bounced it off of, as testament to this fact.

Ironically, it's a Samsung.

  • They're stupidly slow. Have you actually looked up a speed rating recently?
  • No, but everything else is. It covering bricking due to rooting, which they support, is nice as well. It is not the same warranty, or even close, but keep on truckin.
  • And what was the update? A minor patch? Are you even going to get Nougat? Are you even on Marshmallow?
  • Or we could just not have them at all. What a thought.
  • You don't have an option, you have a 2GB ROM. rolleyes.gif Willing to bet if you had actual storage built in you would not care as much.
  • Man, you really have no idea what good build quality is if you think your $5 phone has structural integrity.
  • No clue why you keep going on this "No 3.5mm" train since that's iPhone only. Must not pay attention to high end phones at all.
  • No clue why you keep going on about lack of SD card with all three Android leaders in the $600-700 market supporting them. Must not pay attention to high end phones at all.
  • There is a difference between soldered, removable, and replaceable batteries. I assume you're complaining about the battery not being removable without phone disassembly. That is different than not being able to replace it at all.

No, I've been using a 4k monitor for just shy of two years now. Being that I use it for gaming and movies it was worth the investment. A 3.5"-5.5" phone screen no matter how good the quality is will not exactly be a enjoyable experience for movies or media. I'll take the not exactly big quality hit.

For example.. my 4k monitor has a ppi of 157 and being that it's 28" most people consider it too small as well (though I'm fine with it). Now my $5 phone with it's meager 940x540 res and 4.5" screen has a ppi of 240. Yea. I'm not exactly going to worry about the image too much. Colors are fine - I'm not exactly doing fine work in Photoshop which needs ridiculous color accuracy on my mobile device.

I don't carry around large headphones to use with my phone. I use earbuds because I'd rather you know, use my mobile device in mobile situations. I have good headphones for use at home and of course proper speakers as well.

Considering my phone can take me throwing it down on the concrete with a $10 case I'd say my phone is doing pretty well as far as structural quality goes. Just because you can have what may as well be tank armor on your phone doesn't make it any more reasonable or more importantly worth the price premium.

I talk about the 3.5 jack and lack there of sd cards because a worrying amount of people are ok with and even seem to defend not having these features.

As far as the battery goes, having one that can be swapped in quickly is a benefit. Carrying an extra battery that can be swapped in seconds is great when you are camping or hiking. External battery chargers are great too of course, but they are kind of pain to keep plugged in while using said device on the move.

Regardless, clearly we see value differently and have different requirements from our phones. Which is the keyword here, it's a phone. If I need power, color accuracy, great sound, etc. I'll go to dedicated equipment for it such as my PC. Then again, I'm the guy that still uses laptops when he needs to get things done properly on the road.

I don't care how people spend their money, don't get me wrong. But like I said above we clearly see value differently and for the sake of the thread will have to agree to disagree.
