Has your order been shipped yet? Mine was supposed to be delivered today but no sign of even shipping till now. In these matters Amazon is very professional unlike Flipkart.

Hi, yes the phone was delivered yesterday evening. Setting up the phone was a breeze.

Coming from Oneplus X, I find the camera in Honor 10 just too good

I shall post more updates after an extensive usage during the weekend.

One miss - Double tap to wake up the phone is not available. I sorely miss this function.

I thought this is a standard feature in later versions of Android. I too use oneplus x and this is one of my favourite feature. I don't have to fumble around to find power button while driving car.

So this all across and not specific to my location. Flipkart is more customer oriented, this is what I feel as well.

Waiting for more information on OP6 and then decide between both (Honor 10 and OP6)

Re: Oreo for Lenovo K6 Power?

Anyone here using LineageOS 15.1 on Lenovo 'K6 Power'? How's it faring?

Now that we know Lenovo won't update this device with Oreo, have to look around for stable ROMs if there are any.

Please pour in your suggestions!

This is on my radar but only negative for me is 64 GB Rom. Migrating from Note 4 32GB version after more than 3 years I want 128 GB version which is not available. If Memory card was not Hybrid then I would have gone ahead with it though. I do not want S8 or S9. So waiting for Note 9 now.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Hi everyone. In some sort of a fix on which phone to buy.

I currently have a Samsung Note 5. Have always been a Note fan, had the Note 2 before the Note 5.

Note 5 didn't come with expandable memory card and I had brought the 32gb variant. So, struggling with managing memory now. The phone also has become super slow for some reason and takes its own sweet time to load even basic apps like WhatsApp or Gmail.

Now, I am thinking of replacing this phone with either the OP6 / S9+ or the P20 Pro

I know a friend of mine who is an employee at Samsung and he can get the S9+ 128gb at 49k Post all cashback and employee discounts. The OP6 is 40k and the P20 Pro is 64k for equivalent 128gb variants. I don't know if the P20 deserves a 24k premium over the oneplus just for the better camera.

If the P20 Pro was anywhere close to 50k, I would have blindly gone for it by now. I like the S9+, but, the way the note 5 has slowed down after 2.5 years, I am wary of going for a Samsung again - I am thinking it could be a problem of the exynos processors instead of SD 845 that they use in India for Samsung?

The OP6 from whatever I have heard is the best in terms of speed and blows everything else away. However, I don't need the speed for running games and such, as long as I can check mails / message and use the other basic apps and multitask between them fast, that should suffice for me.

Any feedback on what I should go with will help what would you have done if you guys were in the same predicament as me right now?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

This is what Mr. Makhni had to say about the Honor 10 vs the Oneplus 6 battle... Interesting

Quote:
Honor10 vs OnePlus 6

Honor10 leads with its camera and AI; its front fingerprint scanner is slightly better-looking and has a better feel. The OnePlus 6 is insanely high specced and powered. Due to a more aggressive price and features, the Honor 10 is ahead of the OnePlus 6.

At that price, the S9+ all the way. No notch!

And memory card slot and of course if memory serves me correctly it has proper water proofing and wireless charging.

And an excellent camera and that gorgeous display.

Are you sure you don't want to try this first ?

Spoke to Viddy who convinced me and thus, I reset it today. Reinstalled all the apps and it's now blazing fast . Good for at least another 6 months (warranty is valid till November ).

Thanks. Yes. S9+ makes so much sense at that price. But I think I just changed my mind and won't buy anything for the next 6 months

Thank you so much. I did a full data reset last evening after backing up everything. The phone then re-downloaded all the 160 odd apps.

Its become very fast now. Hope it stays this way for another 6 months atleast.

You just postponed my 50k investment on the phone Now I'll wait for the Note 9 / OP7 or the S10+ maybe.

No luck for me, tried last Thursday but it was out of stock before you could blink.
I guess there are more admirers of it now.

How is 3/32 holding up for your father?
This used to be good enough configuration earlier, but now a days with 4/64 variants available profusely default seems to have moved to it.

I was looking for this or Oppo Realme 1 for my sister, the Oppo model is only available in 3/32 and 6/128, hence the question for you.


Folks, anyone in general tried out Oppo Realme 1 (any config)?
Please share your feedback.
