I have the same phone and it's still working flawlessly at almost 5 years! When I bought it, I did not anticipate it would last so long! Absolutely zero issues. Mine still gives a full day battery backup. Lovely phone

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Friends,

Can you help me here? Am looking for a phone in the 30K price bracket which has a good camera & preferably stock android. I had been using Pixel 5a until it fell face-down and crashed.

Currently, these are the phones that I'm looking at

1. Pixel 6a
- Positive: Google. Can be worry-free for the next few years regarding updates.
- Don't see much of a negative except for absolutely no local service centres.

2. Samsung S20 FE
- A bit old, since S21 and S22 are in the market already. So, cannot expect much of updates

3. Moto Edge 30 Pro
- Looks like the camera is a bit so-so and is not much impressive.

4. OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite
- Launching on April-11th in Amazon. 20K rupees
- Cons: Has a IPS-LCD screen - not AMOLED.

Can you help me choose? Is there any other good phone that I'm missing out? I looked at Nothing (1) as well - but, kinda sceptical about the jazzy Glyph back panel.

Thanks in advance,
Vijay

I am well qualified to answer your question. I have been using the Galaxy S10+ since June 2019. I would clasify my usage as heavy and I charge the phone twice a day. Touchwood there is no bulging issue to date. The battery charging time has more than doubled but the phone is still as fast as it was on day 1. In fact I am not able to find any reason to upgrade.

I was in the same boat 6 months back, and I decided to go with the Nothing phone. I've been using the Nothing phone for the past 6 months, and it has been a joy. An excellent build quality, above average cameras, good battery life, and very good performance for normal usage. I'm using a Gcam mod for my camera and night photos have noticeably improved. The first thing I did once I got the phone was to switch off the Glyphs, although it could be made good use of if you wish. So I would recommend the Nothing Phone over the ones shortlisted.

Cheers!

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Woo hoo! You know you're getting on in age when your Gmail account was activated in Feb 2005. From an era when Gmail was in Beta and invite only. Remember Gmail went into Beta on 1st Apr 2004. And they were not kidding. I was happy to find this message whilst going through my email archives.

Some unrelated trivia on account creation: eBay in 2000, Twitter 2009. Any more would be off topic

Same here. You made me look up this email. A classmate had sent me the invite, which I activated in Aug 2005.

Those days when Google was going to be the next big thing!

Several years back, I got invite from GMail to try Inbox, and I then invited that very friend to join it too Though Inbox was killed by Google eventually.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Price of the Pixel 7a is expected to be about the same as what the regular Pixel 7 is selling for now. Then why would anyone buy the 7a?

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Hello, I'm unable to send multiple images/videos as document via Whatsapp. Even if you select multiple files, only the first one selected gets loaded onto WA. Any known solutions? Earlier I was able to send without any hiccups.

Android Version: 13
Device : Samsung S 22 Ultra
WA version: 2.23.8.76
------------

Edit : There's a simple fix to this, I just restarted the device and it's working fine now

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

I facing following problem in Moto G40 Fusion-

The Video camera symbol does not go away after ending Video Call. I am talking about Video Call using Phone App and not WhatsApp.

Searched on Google but could not find correct solution.

Currently I have to Restart the phone after Video Call for turning the Camera symbol OFF.

Bhpians, Any Solutions?

Sim is Airtel, if that matters.

I hate this inclusive of offers advertising! Many of us do not have a fairly expensive phone to exchange and/or the exact right cards with which to pay. So to them, and me... it's 44k!

With the 6a at 28k. I wonder how long before the 7a falls a bit.

Even at 40K, the 7A falls short of the Pixel 7. Pixel 7 is currently available for 47K. For 7k more, in the 7 you get a bigger, better screen, thinner bezels, premium build quality and a better size to weight ratio.

If you compare the 7A to the 6A, for 12.5K more, in the 7A you get slightly better chipset and cameras, 7.5w wireless charging, thicker bezels, 15g more weight and a smaller battery.

What you say makes sense, except, for me, I do not want a bigger screen/phone.

Anyway, my finger is not itching over the buy now button. I was being being tempted by the 6a. The 7a release does not make me want to rush for either, rather, I'll wait a while and see the prices of both models.
