+1 for this. Moto E3 Power is sufficiently featured and your Dad will be at ease to use it, so as in case of Moto G4/G4 Plus for your wife (I am using G4 Plus from the date of its release and I am loving it).

So December 2nd the OP3T launches in India. Hope prices are in line with US Dollar prices.

I really like the specs of the Huawei Mate 9 Pro but i guess it would be priced at Sammy S7 prices.

Has Samsung USA lost it? That is completely unacceptable. Hopefully its a one off case of of a stupid customer rep because if this would have been their standard policy, the Internet would trolled Samsung by now!

Btw... Samsung India is still swapping screens... If you pay them. A friend got his phone repaired last week.

Thanks for reporting.
In Indian context, as per Samsung India's website, there is an offer to get one time free screen replacement within the first 12 months.

Been using Redmi note 3 for more than a month now and I'm very happy with it. It's got an awesome battery life and has a lag free performance.

Yesterday while browsing on chrome, I got an alert for possible virus threat and I closed the tab immediately. But after this, I've noticed a considerable drop in battery performance and also the phone heating up on browsing. Initially after using the phone all day long, there was approx 40%-45% battery remaining at the end of the day but now there is a drop of nearly 25% in battery life. Also the phone gets heated up more than before.

What could be the reason and how do I rectify this problem so as to bring back the phone to it's original performance? Will formatting the phone help or do I need to do something else? Pls advice.

OnePlus 3 for you if you're willing to spend. Else, Z2 is good.

+2 for the above.

But instead of OPO get Moto Z Play.... Become a MoTo family.

Believe me all these three are worth their price.

Dear Members, I have few networking question.

Pre 5.0 Andriod version have the flexibility to constantly switch on off network for better connectivity. But Post 5.0 versions require a rooted Phone.

I have Jio sim but pathetic speed and have downloaded few ping Apps and configure them to ping 8.8.8.8 non stop.

I am just a beginner in networking field and whatever knowledge I have is via Google.

For Ping

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...om.ddm.iptools

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ivot.pingmeter

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ndroid.netping



For VPN I use this for Faster speed, still speed is pathetic till 9pm but post 9pm I have seen 6/7 M or 4G occasionally.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...k.proxy.vpnpro


I got this new app and am still figuring out how to configure it.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....vx.connectbot

understand I need a keyboard with this app.


Anything info related to Network/config for my Mi4i, will appreciate it.

Thanks.

Did you try the built in Virus Scan feature in the Security App. That should be the first step I guess followed by a formatting if there is no virus found and the issue still persists.

Thanks abhinav,
Didn't do the virus scan but had a chat with the customer care executive at mi.com and they suggested to format the phone. Did the formatting in the afternoon and seems that the issue has been resolved. Will get a clear picture by tomorrow evening.
Anyways, thanks once again.

Could it be possible that you have Chrome add on got installed which is eating all batteries! If it is okay with you, uninstall Chrome and Install it again! May be this help any unwanted add-on in chrome also removed. The drawback is that you loose all stored password.

Been using the oneplus 3T 128GB version for the past one week. Its definitely a big step up from my 2 year old Lg G3 running CM 14.1

The battery life is phenomenal. The software is butter smooth and very responsive. The AMOLED screen seems brighter than the QHD screen on the G3. The G3 screen now feels dull. 3T is very well build as well. This is my first all metal phone. 3T is much taller than the G3.

Dash charging is awesome. Camera seems ok but feel low light shots are just about average. Haven't tried the manual mode still.

Still have another week to make up my mind. Planning to hold onto it. Seems like excellent value at $479. I am curious to know its price when i launches in India on 2nd.

Finally Android Nougat seems to have one feature that actually matters in this useless update-after-update fever that seems to have gripped the Android users in general - multi-window support. Yes it has its kinks, definitely not as effective or smooth as a windows laptop but one can surely use 2 simple programs at a time now bringing the RAM usage to real relevance. The rest of the OS felt a bit quicker, faster, no-nonsense in this avatar, Marshmallow was a highly overrated OS but this seems to be less publicised and yet quite a bit better. I'm happy to have got it reasonably within time and ahead of many other brands

The rest of the Xperia UI has been made much more practical and user-friendly, even more so than usual. Brilliant products, to me electronics mean Sony, no other brand comes within a mile. Its the closest thing to an Android luxury brand, not quite as expensive as Vertu but on par with Apple if not ahead in terms of snob appeal.
