But i am thinking about giving it to my sis early next year and buy Xperia 5II. Note ultra ia too big for me. I like medium sized phones.

I am totally opposed to war, all in for diplomacy. Human won't be as civilized as to eradicate hostility so better find a solution through diplomacy and make everyone happy (maybe in reality not everyone).

Anyway what about your id? Why choose something like a full name?

Kriegsherr, 09 Oct 2020It means warlord :) :p Didn't know its a scary name. Warlord is pretty scary too. Why did you choose it? Do you like war?

I have a Galaxy Note 8 now which I love. It takes extremely good photos. I want both and Apple and Android device so I can have the best from both worlds. I like how Google is implemented on Android - Gmail and YT don't work well with iOS and I love to be able to use my phone as a USB drive which is impossible with iPhones.

What phone will you have next?

I was gonna buy the Note 20 Ultra but sadly it was the Exynos version so I'm waiting for S21 Ultra with an S-pen or the Fold 3.

AnonD-947580, 09 Oct 2020Thank yoooouu:) Your name scared me. Why did you choose it?It means warlord :) :p

But I didn't buy a new iPhone because 3.5mm is a must for me. I gave S10e a try and although it's not as good as a iphone but not bad. I got a very good deal so I don't think I overpaid.
AND I won't buy a Chinese phone cause those are totally crap. Totally agree with you.

We have been into discussion before and that is how I... more I don't mind paying the full price for an iPhone, ie. the 12 Pro Max which I will preorder when it becomes available but regarding Android phones - I don't think a single one of them is worth their full price. Android phones are usually garbage that starts to lag badly after 6-24 months. Also the hardware is not good. It easily breaks. Justl look at the chinese phones - they use the cheapest components and usually breaks after a short time of usage.

I think the only products worth paying the full price for are Apple devices due to the higher quality and longer software support. Also Apple has the best OS in the business.

AnonD-947580, 08 Oct 2020So you have been stalking me? Ew dude. I don't like me... moreNope. We have been into discussion before and that is how I know THIS ID wants a 1000 dollar device for 100 dollar. I never knew you can consider that as stalking.

they will come up with the slim version eventually
If size is the concern, just be patience for PS5 Slim

Kriegsherr, 08 Oct 2020the original PS4 was like jet but Sony sorted out the probl... moreah that's why I get confused when people comments PS4 like jet engine
I own the slim, so never experience the engine 😅

Kudos to Sony for learning the lesson regarding proprietary memory and storage. In this case using standard m.2 drives is very smart, but it's unfortunate that Microsoft doesn't seem to have learned the same lesson as the drive it uses will be proprietary and expensive to upgrade. This by itself puts me squarely in the Sony camp.

What a slap to microsoft oof

"Sony has also cleverly created dust catcher vents where dust will naturally accumulate over time. This will let users easily vacuum off most of it without disassembling the console entirely."

Oh this is nice to hear. Just yesterday I was trying to clean out the dust out of my brothers PS3, you basically have to disassemble the entire thing to do so.
