Audio experts, correct me if I am wrong.
Er yes, but i connect my headphones/car audio through cable only. If i mentioned it was via BT somewhere please ignore.

No, not your fault. I assumed it cos the headphones were wireless, and I couldn't imagine anybody wiring his wireless headphones. In my case, I bought a bluetooth appendage to convert my wired headphones to wireless.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Guys, I need a phone for my dad.
Budget 30K max.
This will be is secondary phone, he uses iphone X as his primary.
He wants an android only because he has bought some subscription which has android only app.
So basically he wants a big screen phone, I think I can get 120 hz AMOLED in the budget easily. Camera is not very important but would be nice to have a good camera at the back. Battery should last at least a day or day and a half. Storage should be at least 128gb and minimum of 6gb ram. Speakers can be decent as he will be using his bluetooth earphones most of the times.
We will be exchanging his current realme XT.

options considered:
1. oneplus nord 2.
2. realme GT master
3. motorola edge 20
4. motorola edge 20 fusion
5. poco f3 gt
6. realme x7 max
7. vivo x60 (one can get extra 5000 off on exchange)
8. samsung s20FE (was listed for 38K on flipkart) but its out of my budget.
9. Mi 11 series??
10. Oneplus nord CE

I have not considered Pixel 4a because of small screen.
Any other options like A52 should I consider?
Also how is the vivo X60? is the screen bright enough?

Samsung A52 is a good option. It's getting back in Stock now after weeks of being "Out of Stock". It has a solid Spec Sheet (incl 90 Hz refresh rate, IP68 rating, and battery backup). 8GB RAM/128GB variant should cost about 28K.

Your requirements are so easy to satisfy. Any phone mentioned by you will satisfy your dad.
1.Choose Realme X7 Max[since camera is not important] and save 5k.
2.Choose Oneplus Nord 2 if budget is not an issue.
3.Choose Motorola and enjoy the stock android.

Go for Samsung F62, Samsung A52 or One Plus Nord 2. In the 30k range, these 3 are decent options and will serve your father very well.

Consider A71-72 series too if it is on the budget. I am using A70 since 27months, no complaints so far. Except for a slow fingerprint scanner. I have also used a Note10 lite, Iphone SE and Galaxy S21 simultaneously. Your dad wont miss much, if usage is not very high.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Hi Folks

Cross posting from the tablets thread since viewership there is sporadic

I would like to buy a tablet preferably 8inch size. The primary use of this would be to read books. Now the question you will ask is why not the Kindle and Nook. I am looking to read books with a lot of color pictures, maybe comics as well. For this, I need something that can render colors and not the ink readers

I had an iPad mini which missus grabbed a couple of years back and I don't want to spend a lot on another iPad.

The tablet should be able to provide a good battery backup, at least 3 to 4 days. I will not be using it for anything else such as wifi browsing, Bluetooth services, or call services. It would probably be a dumb device and all file transfers will happen visa USB

Would be great if you can suggest android devices with good battery backup and economical (sub 15k). Thanks in advance

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Any reviews on the Redmi Note 10? Looking to get it for my mom, who will be upgrading from an old Redmi 5A. Basic performance requirements only, no power usage of any kind. Budget is around 12 K.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

My dad is using a Redmi Note 10
The green colour variant looks a bit different from the photo. It's dark green actually till the bottom.

Performance is great for the price. Still you may get some usual MIUI glitches.

A Full HD+ Amoled screen for 12k when other companies provide HD+ and LCD screens.

Doesn't feel as fluidic as Realme UI. I would prefer Realme UI over MIUI. Realme UI have ​a stock android look.

Camera quality is good considering the price.

Stereo speakers won't give you a great experience. At least they provided it at this price.

Insane value for money if you can get it for 12k. Price is currently increased to 14k.

Thanks, sounds like a solid phone at this budget price point. Price will effectively be 12 K since the exchange price for the old Redmi 5A is around INR 2000.

Yes I think the A52 is a good phone, though the SD720 processor that it ships with is a couple of years old now.

Get the Redmi 10 Prime instead. That's a newer phone with better hardware, and will be available at a similar price from 7th September. Also I would suggest you to take a look at the Samsung F22.

Could find a few tablets which could satisfy most of your requirements, but don't know whether battery backup would be up to your expectations.

Look at this webpage:
https://benchmarks.ul.com/compare/be...ySize=6.9,15.0

You can set your display size and get a list. Samsung would be a good brand to stick to. I would choose the highest performing tablet within the given budget.
