The Mobile Phone Thread

Recommended Posts

OK phone enthusiasts. I don't really follow the best phones etc, since I cannot spend more than 10k on a phone myself.
 
Anyway sis wants to get a new phone. Soft budget 30K, hard budget 40k. Main requirement swag, though a good camera and battery will be much appreciated. Please keep in mind, tech specs etc are of no value to her, as long as there's  minimal lag its fine.
 
Thanks in advance good folks.
One plus 7t, Samsung Note 10 lite and S 10 lite. All under 40k range. Pick any among these.

I'm thinking of changing from iPhone 7 to the Note 10 Lite, mainly for the S pen. My query is how is the stylus/pen in actual use? Is it comfortable for taking notes, making lists etc? Is the handwriting recognition good? Also will the Exynos 9810 being 2 yrs old slow down the phone.

What's the best phone within 25k? Hard stretch to 30k?
 
Specs etc mean nothing, shouldn't lag in a year or two preferably


OnePlus 7 - 31k

Asus 6z - 28k

Redmi K20 pro - 25k

Additional discounts for Credit/Debit Cards maybe there.

Thank you! :)

How does the pop up camera work for video chat on whatsapp, any idea? Does it pop up on its own? Do you have to manually close it after the call ends?

It doesn't have memory expansion and comes inbuilt with only 64GB at 20k. But that should be fine, i'll go for the 128gb one if i don't find anything else.

Thinking of buying Samsung lite series, which one you guys think is better ( Note or normal one)
 
Currently using oneplus 6. Wanted to switch to Samsung mainly for Samsung Pay. 
 
S10 lite is anyday much better with its processor.

Opens itself, pops back in after the call

Guys a little OT- But Qc 35 or Wh1000m3? and whats a good price for either? 

 

 

Currently qc35 is 29k and wh1000m3 is 25k on Amazon

 

Mainly will be used for Music and movies, with Gaming now and then.

1000XM3. 

Much better ANC, better sound and Type C.

Plus a much better app for tuning.

Plus if you have high resolution audio, LDAC support might come in handy and reduce latency.

Personally I find absolutely no major difference with wearing any of them over long periods of time.

 

Also no matter which one you choose, you will get a split second delay in movies and games over Bluetooth, might not be as much of an issue for you but try them before you buy.

But you can just plug them in for the time being via an adapter or audio jack. Not much of an issue.

Want to buy a phone for wife, something around Rs 15000. Something with decent specs that won't be obsolete 2 years later and preferably a headphone jack. Mostly to be used for media consumption and video calling. Any suggestions?

Both go for around 20k during sale. 

Both are excellent, with Sony having an app based EQ, and Bose being neutral. I've used both, and the Bose is definitely more comfortable. Sony has more gimmicks, and I did find touch a tad jittery. 

Having said that, you can't go wrong with either. 

I've personally ditched both, went with WF1000XM3. Small, portable, ANC is more or less as good as WH, and I can sleep with them too ! No lag etc with movies.
