it's too bad oneplus didn't bring the nord to the United States, it's basically thepixel 5 half the price, obviously camera would be weaker but gcam mods are strong

Same boat, don't need anything crazy so those upgrades would be perfect. The 3 has everything I need already and 5G is the icing on top.

On a separate note I've been disappointed with the reviews and everything about the latest Pixel buds. Was waiting for them to come out and planning on those for my birthday/Christmas but with the issues I've read I'm very ehhh on them.

I gave like a year ago and finally bought those fancy Bose quiet comfort headphones and they are glorious. I don't really use headphones outside of travel or at home though.

That might be the route I go. I really wanted the Pixel buds for really superficial reasons simply because the idea of live translation from different languages sounds awesome. I would maybe use that like once a year if traveling was open but now it's really not worth it.

I have a s20 Ultra love it, shit is so unbelievable snappy, though it does this weird auto filter thing on faces that makes my 1 year old niece look like a porcelain doll

make sure you turn the screen to 120hz, fuck 4k

Isn't that just Beauty Mode or something? You should be able to turn that off. But yeah I'm all in on the 120hz. Wireless Dex should come in handy too.

Note 20 Ultra is sweet. Only thing bothering me is no notification LED and the battery isn't too great. Kinda annoying having to turn settings down when they're the reason you paid for the device in the first place.

I use it but it isn't always on. It'll light up the one time the notification comes but if I want to see if I missed something I gotta turn the screen on.

Doesn't have an always on display option? I don't think that uses much more battery.

It's Apple's intro into magnetic attachments and plugs that have been out for other phones for years.

My bad, apparently apple has also had it for a while but stopped then reintroduced it. It's magnetic connections.

Yeah I thought about going to the Apple world but Androids can do so much more. Plus you can do some goofy shit to get iMessage on your Android if you really cared to.

Yeah, iPhone. They added some magnets to properly align wireless chargers. Itís not like, a game changing feature, but I like knowing itís connected and not having to fuck with cables.

It also shows theyíre likely dumping lightning soon for no connectors at all.

I think some of the stuff, like the wallet backs, that connect to the agents will end up being cool.

Itís not a monumental upgrade, but my X is going to my mom, so was the right time.

Could switch to USB C and make everyone happy ooooooor we could just charge people a boatload of money for more apple shit that doesn't actually help anyone

I know my broke ass isn't their target audience but I'm sure if they just made some common sense moves in the last 2 or 3 years they could have got me

Meh, usb c is a waste of everyone’s time at this point. Just dump the stupid port and let’s get on with making wireless charging not suck. I felt the same way about the 3.5mm jack, so I’m probably in the minority.

I'm good with the $1 charging option instead of the $100 one
