James, 01 Dec 2021Righr,but nobody wants someone who dont update something.Man thats not a true.
You have updates for apps.
Updates for system i mean android since android 10 not much changed in 11 and 2 so maybe it matters for you but for rest of the people its not that important.
By the way many people above age of 50+ wiont update anything especialy those who have their touch phone for basic things like dialing, messaging, viber, whats app and google chrome and maybe some facebook.

Anonymous, 28 Nov 2021IOS still lacks true multi-tasking after all these years True. That is something i wanna switch back to android for.

When comes to price and specs compared to other devices Nubia red magic is a very easy winner.

And btw... To much time on my hands by Styx is such a good song. You should listen to it. Of course you can say it sucks, but that wont change what I feel for the song. The same thing like with everything else. It's all subjecitve.
Ba bye ;)

But with the Exynos, it was a dif story, most ppl know it.
They are very far left behind, won't be able to outperform today's flagship killers or even upper-midrange, it's better to avoid it.
Well 60Hz screen even tho it's 2K, camera hardware and computational photography that lags far (seriously far) behind compared to the newest phone included the S20FE, also the aging hardware (especially the Exynos one), I don't think it was a good idea, even if your need was the S Pen, I don't think that was a fair trade off.
Better to check last year S20 or S20+ or Note 20 Ultra,
Just an advice.

Xcuse me? 🤣 Like bruhh, everyone?

Android.Authority, 28 Nov 2021Sony fanboy at its heart putting Xiaomi in cheap category e... moreNah, bruv. You're the fanboy.
Just because something is cheap, doesn't mean it's bad or low quality. I purposely put those Xiaomi options up there because I am recommending it. If you think those options cost more money than the other options, then you're mistaken.

Besides, being "cheap" is a good thing for consumers. As long as it doesn't have notable drawbacks in the user experience.

Jokes on you Junior. Finish how school first!! Then come back and talk 2 big boys otherwise you will get embarrassed everytime you open your mouth.

Video reviews are great when you have the time. But please please don’t drop written reviews altogether :(

So you think a reviewer could literally say good things about a company in one video and trash the company in another video and companies would let the reviewer get away with it?

If so, why doesn't mrwhosetheboss trash iPhones in other videos, you say?

Please stop just putting a video. People liek me want to READ! We don't have time to watch

Weren't you guys saying to not trust mrwhosetheboss because he's so called "paid" by apple on reviews?

Now your using him as a trustworthy source, haha.

Mrwhosetheboss disproves every single one of your apple hating claims.

Anonymous, 29 Nov 2021Sorry I see u mean the frame not the back, lol. True, plas... moreI've never been against plastic backs, especially if they have rubber on top of them for better grip and shock absorption. But I do admit I like glass more on the back because it look better. It's the frame that matters because if the phone is very big it will start to bend if you have it in your jeans for example. A stainless steel frame won't bend so easy.
As for the SD card slot, everyone on this website knows that I always demand that feature. If it's not present, I loose interest in that phone instantly, no matter how shiny, glittery or wow specs it may have.
But, I'd still buy a Note 10+ over the S20FE in a heartbeat!

Anonymous, 29 Nov 2021That didn’t answer the question. Which phones specifically... moreI already said Redmi phones in their early years.
Go ask the company... they'll give you all the detailed data on which phones made what, in which region, in which quarter, etc.

The Mi 11 Ultra is not what I'd call widely available. It has practically zero availability in the UK. The initial few sold out in early May and the phone has not been seen since. Not forgetting its proximity sensor issues....sigh!

FarFan, 29 Nov 2021This is weird having Sony Xperia 1 III top 6 by fans rating... moreIt's not Gsmarena, it's Sony employed trolls that have existed on this site since it's inception.
This is why you see them come out of the woodwork on Sony articles.
These guys have been caught saying things like "let's get it upto 500 posts".
It's an echo chamber that will make you believe lot of people are excited about Sony phones and will buy them, yet majority of these fellas are stuck on cheap Chinese phones, the very phones they despise.
