I have infinix Hot 30. At least they allow bootloader unlocking which is becoming rare these days.

The color of that peach fuzz reminds me of the rotary in our kitchen where I lived as a kid. An option besides black or white is nice!

Ilandar , in Epic wants a judge to open up the Google Play Store for good

Basically, Epic doesn't want Google to be able to offer anything that other competing app marketplaces can't. That includes exclusive apps

Kinda funny considering Epic has its own history of releasing games that are exclusive to its store.

new phones look goofy with all the extra cameras and circles of dubious functionality

i want a phon with no cameras cus i never uses em so why should i pay for hardware i don't need?

somegadgetguy OP ,

I REALLY wish these companies would drop the extra sensors. It's just for the look, to make it LOOK more expensive.
It's better than when cheap brands would put fake lenses on the back of a phone, but not by much.

Ilandar ,

I like the way Samsung and, to a lesser extent, Google have incorporated multiple cameras into their design language recently. I think Samsung's cameras look quite stylish now, though not as good as the LG Velvet's (which I'm sure they took inspiration from). Apple and Chinese manufacturers are still just lazily dumping them all in some gigantic camera module, which looks absolutely awful. It's so funny to me that Apple phones are still seen as a high end status symbol in society, particularly by younger people, because they have looked ugly for years now. It's like one of these celebrities who everyone thinks is cool because their clothing is expensive, despite the fact it looks like it was assembled by a 3 year old.

Looks fine, but the Edge 50 Pro is a monental downgrade over its own predecessor.

umami_wasbi , in Epic wants a judge to open up the Google Play Store for good

This is something I'm unsure of. While I agree that there should be less obstacles to third party app stores, and sideloading, I'm not sure about taking warnings away is a wise choice. Especially when people are comfort and used to no warnings when using Google Play and other equivalents. Most just doesn't do basic digital hygine. A better route is to bring down Google Play from its system app status and become a normal one, and warnings for everyone.

I agree. I understand the need for third party app stores, but first party are already a security nightmare.

cm0002 ,

I agree, a reasonable amount of warnings is perfectly acceptable and dare I say even necessary.

I just went through a new phone process, which for me involves side loading a couple different apps, there was like 1 main warning to turn on side loading in general and then I had to allow individual apps to install other apps (Like Droid-ify, since it's an app store it's gotta be allowed to install other apps) and I wasn't bugged again. A reasonable system IMO.

henfredemars , in Exclusive: Google Pixel 9 series to get emergency satellite connectivity, new modem

I guess this is good. I’m disappointed yet not surprised that they’ll be using a Samsung modem. My connectivity has been really poor with the 8 Pro. I sold it last week because of issues that implicate that modem.

Experience very. Some people have no issues, but I found it a bit of a lemon.

Xy_lemmy , in Android 15 may be able to quarantine misbehaving apps

This time I'm not convinced. I see this as a ploy to quarantine apps they dont like but are legitimate e.g "Yet another call blocker"
