  1. my attention span is so bad i can literally be sitting watching a video of one of my favorite youtubers and i see something flash on my second screena nd next thing i know i'm replying on discord not paying any attention to the video at all and i have to rewind it to see where i was lol


    how do android users accept things like this? i expect outrage soon lol


    this is why i stick with iPhone, i trust Apple not to do weird stuff like this.

      Giving something for free?

      There were clearly other motives behind that.


      Edit: In case it was not actually clear, it was done to set records, not out of some notion of kindness.

      but still, that's giving something for free, what OnePlus is doing here is installing an app store that nobody is gonna use, so it's effectively bloatware, which is IMO still worse. 

      What OnePlus are doing is installing a free app making it easier for people to use their devices in ways that people would typically use their device. What Apple did was install an album on their users devices that nobody is going to listen to, so it's effectively taking up space on people's devices just so Apple could pull a marketing stunt, which is worse IMO



      This of course isn't to say I agree with bundling apps with phones. I actually don't. I have a Samsung phone and I hate all the Samsung garbage apps they force on the phone.


      I'm sure Amazon spent a lot of money to have OnePlus install their app on their devices. I recently bought something off Amazon AU and it offered a $10 discount on my order if I purchased through the phone app. I couldn't be bothered downloading the amazon app so I just paid full price, but if Amazon is giving $10 off orders just to download the app then they must be spending bucket loads of cash to promote it.

      OnePlus goes the Ubunutu route by adding Amazon malware (isn't malware defined as unwanted software which can't easily be removed)? why not let them taste it :D


      @Spotty BB10 had Amazon bundled (which made sense) but still it felt all years so bad that you couldn't disable/remove it. Ubuntu bundled Amazon which was just as bad as a decision then Firefox adding Ads into there browser,Pocket or firing most parts of the company (RIP firefox). Okay the last one is more on a Thingiverse management fail scale close to Nokia Smartphones.



  3. one thing i like about the whole lockdown thing is that i don't need a lock screen passcode on my phone since i almost never go outside and if i do i either don't take my phone with me or i have headphones on playing music so i'd know if someone stole my phone. 

  4. ...but they already use their own cpu's in anything except Mac's? and the iPhones are still really good so...
  5. i've just been playing around a bit on the 4S i got recently, and it's amazing what you can still do with it. 


    i was able to install youtube (an older version because iOS 9, but still plays fine), spotify (agian old version but works fine), even the most current version of WhatsApp. like, you could still use this as main phone if you had nothing else available. this is a phone from 2011!! that's insane!

      @Ashley xD I'm not saying that android really competes with that. I'm just saying that for me long term software updates aren't that big of a deal, and the other benefits android provides far outweigh that in my opinion. I totally understand why someone might prefer an iPhone for that reason though.

      Community support on Android is comparable if not superior to Apple (if Apple decides it is obsolete it is. On Android the community/fans working on ROMs decides it is). Downside the first two years you need manufactures update as it would otherwise void the warranty and after that most people don't care and just keep using the old OS.


      The LG 4x HD from 2012 got in 2016 Android 7.

      The 2014 Sony Z2 runs Android 10 without problems.

      The 2013 Samsung S4 has android 10 (don't own this but should work) and probably more to come.

      @James Evens the problem with custom roms is they are often more unstable. i have an Lg G3 (stock android 6) and i installed android 10 on it via lineageOS. it was so slow it took 15 minuytes to even detect touch after booting, opening spotify took literally a full minute, playback in spotify skipped around and it was unusably slow in every way. and then an update bricked it. not a great experience. 

  6. new addition to the collection :) 

    it's an 8gb iPhone 4S. i got it for free from my brother, since he wasn't using it. it's a pretty shitty model in terms of storage, but for my use it's fine. because i also got one of those old docking station speaker things with a 30 pin connector, i can use it with that as a jukebox. 


    if you go on the app store and try to install spotify it doesn't let you since it's limited to iOS 9, however from the purchases page it lets you download an older version of the app that still works fine. it lacks some features obviously but i don't care about that, all i need is playback and it still does that just fine.

      Nice. Even with the crack on the back it looks to be in good shape for one of those phones. 

    2. WY6


      stuck on ios 9 rippp

      theres a way to downgrade to ios 6 with a custom ipsw and 3utools if you google it

      @WY6 i already have a 3GS on iOS 6, so i don't need that on here. thanks for the tip though. 

  7. quote people like this, otherwise they don't get a notification. it's this button: @Fasauceome there's your notification
  8. my current DS collection. 


    the 2 in the back are a Poke Ball edition New 2DS XL, and a DSi XL. 

    the DS in the front is obviously a DS Lite. 


    the 2 in the back are fully working, the DS Lite has no sound from speakers, only headphones. the rest of it works though. 





    1. sub68


      I have a ds lite and 2ds xl

  9. my brother has gifted me his old DSi XL, and i'm super happy. 


    the cool thing about the DSi XL is that the displays are the same resolution as the original DS, so you don't have to deal with upscaling like the 3DS and up have to deal with when playing original DS games. so it's perfect for me, because i really like a lot of OG DS games, specifically a lot of pokemon games. 




  10. i highly doubt it's the hdd. i have an 11 year old drive in my rig (i'm not stupid it only has games on it calm down) and it works fine for just loading games. did you check that everything runs at the proper clock speed?
  11. i really wish you would fact check stuff before you post. it's not me, i left the server days ago.
  12. i have fond memories of Office '07 and '10 on the school pc's as a kid, i always really liked the interface. shame that it's EOL now.
  13. that looks like a dead graphics card. do you have another system to test it with?
