Which phone do I get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, I'm looking get a new phone, I've got about $300 aud. I need a phone with a decent video camera - I'm tossing up between the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 and the Samsung Galaxy s7. Or is there a completely different phone I should be considering? Thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

Neither. S8. The S7 is a very old phone by now.

 

Redmi's are made of plasitc, which is yucky.


Main PC: i5-8600K (6C/6T), MSI Z370M, T-Force Delta II RGB 16GB, Samsung 128GB NVME, Crutial MX300, ROG STRIX RX-580 8GB, Corsair CX 750, Fractal Define Mini C TG, Windows 10 Enterprise

School Laptop: Late 2008 Macbook Aluminum Unibody. C2D P7350, nVidia 9800M, 8GB RAM, 1 TB HDD, macOS Mojave. Also my editing laptop (FCP > Adobe Premier)

Phone: Galaxy Note 8, Android 8.0

Random devices in various stages of working: Gateway Solo W2000 Laptop (For writing floppies, needs a battery), iBook G3 Clamshell (for a custom build, just a case), iBook G4 (For Sale.), Surface 3 (Touch screen is borked, perfect otherwise.), Lenovo G580 (For Sale)

I would honestly recommend saving up then. Neither phone is worth your money, imo.

the Samsung Galaxy s7

just basic phone functions? anything features in mind(games/ screen size etc)?

s7 is still a great option with lots of developers support , xda forum

 

lg g6 should be around same price, but with better audio

I really don't mind. I'm planning on using basic social media and that's it. The thing I want is a good video camera.

My mom and sister had S7's, they were piles of horse shit. Just saying. 


You ever notice that many establishments have a sign that as "No Shirt, No Shoes, No service"? They never say anything about pants............ You know what that implies. You dont have to wear pants.
