Are you sure that is a oneplus - Realme flagship announced

Recommended Posts

Oppo tends to share designs between sub-brands. This time it is the realme x50 pro 5G. Comes with the snapdragon 865 and seems to resemble some leaked renders of the oneplus as mentioned on another thread. It is also mentioned that they will release their own Smart TV at MWC but it was cancelled.

Quote

The X50 Pro 5G, bearing model number RMX2071, will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 SoC and run Android 10 with Realme UI on top. It will come with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage, but it will likely have more memory options that are yet to be confirmed. The 5G flagship will come with NFC and support dual SIM as well, but it's unclear whether it will have a microSD card slot since the company's first flagship - X2 Pro - doesn't have one. The snapshot also reveals that the X50 Pro 5G will sport a display having a punch hole in the top-left corner for the selfie cameras, and checking its resolution reveals the phone will pack a FullHD+ panel.

Note that Some oppo chargers will support the same charging standard as the OnePlus

Thoughts: Realme phones tend to be the cheapest among Oppo brands, but I will let the reviews decide if it's anything worth looking at.

No expandable storage and no headphone jack? Guys, it's 2020. We shouldn't be fighting this. Mark my typed words I will never buy a phone without those two key things. They are not features, they are constitutional and unalienable rights. /ChangeMyMind

Not everybody cares about those things... everything in a phone is a 'feature' as for 'constitutional and unalienable'... mind checking the constituiton real quick? ; )

65W charging sure is nice. I'd love to see them finally bring out that 100W charging, but apparently it's not quite ready for mass market yet.

The 30W wireless charging coming to a lot of phones this year is also really nice to see.

Haha, you'll have a real limited selection of phones in a couple years. I don't see the point of expandable storage once phones surpass the 512GB mark.

I don’t mind the headphone jack as much, but I need expandable storage.

Not loosing everything if/when the device decides top finally die. And cloud storage isn't a real answer.

How is it not a real answer? What would you lose that wouldn't be backed up?

Frankly if you have an older device you should be doing back ups anyway.

I think flagship phones should at least have the headphone jack, expandable storage is nice because I can just get a cheap microSD card instead of paying more for a phone.

Having the expandable storage is another backup for important files, and cloud storage can use up a data plan quickly.

There are places where you get data caps everywhere, even at home, what's more there is a delay.

I have tried recording the road using my phone, but 100GB that I let the app use would fill up so quickly, recording at full resolution you will be able to fill 512 GB very fast. I myself have filled my 256GB memory(even after deleting all road recordings) and have to remove stuff from my phone that I'd like to keep there, so an expansion option would be great.

You might argue how many phone users need those, but some definitely do.

I mean, to be fair...all you need to do to get around the missing headphone jack is a little dongle adapter. While there are a lot of bulky horrible/cheap ones, there are some nice slim ones that work well and some phone manufacturers even pack it in the box for you. Expandable storage is not really something you can conveniently add like that after the fact so I think its the more important thing they are cutting out.

 

That being said, personally on-board phone storage has been enough for me ever since we progressed to 64gb models as the standard. I do take some videos and photos, but I tend to delete the old ones after a few months and even with all my music I'm usually around 20-30gb free on a 64 gig phone. With the new standard being(probably) 128gb or higher, I honestly don't see an issue. One exception being those 8k videos on the S20....if you take a lot of those you'll probably need the 512 model + the expandable storage(at least in north America it has an SD card slot)

 

Missing headphone jack kind of sucks but honestly really not a big deal with the wide availability of quality dongles on places like amazon. People seem to think that no headphone jack means wireless headphones only, and I understand the aversion to wireless. Charging them and keeping track of them can be a real hassle sometimes but jesus just use a damn dongle for Christ's sakes and quit your crying about it. That connector came out in the 50s and as much as I'd like to keep it around for ease of use, too, losing it in modern 2020 smart devices is not a big deal with the alternatives available.

Me neither tbh. I missed those features on iOS and I'm really happy to have them back now.

I wouldn't expect the average consumer to go out looking for the correct USB-C adapter that works with their phone if it isn't included, because every phone manufacturer likes to make their dongle proprietary so you only buy their adapter. And those dongles aren't any more convenient as it's another thing to carry. I really don't see the point in buying an overpriced phone with more internal storage, when I could just put a cheap SD card into the phone if I need more space.

I'm not really crying about the lack of a basic standardized port in a flagship phone, a higher priced phone should have more features than the plenty of $300-400 phones which still have a headphone jack, and some with no hole in the screen. And it doesn't matter how old the 3.5mm jack is, manufacturers are only taking it away to sell you their wireless headphones.

Sure you can buy dongles or wireless headphones but that isn't any better when I would either have to be more careful to not break a fragile dongle or having to charge a pair of headphones along with my phone, and not be able to charge the phone and use any wired headphones at the same time.

Not to mention they decided to damage a perfectly good screen by putting a hole in it.

Seems like a pretty poor app then. Most proper dash cams don't use anywhere near that amount of data.

The number of users that need more than 512GB is minuscule. That's why you don't see a ton of phones with 1TB of storage; it's simply not needed.

Sure, there will always be outliers. However, they're just that. Outliers. Just like some people need a 15 passenger van for their kids, but the % is tiny.

I personally don't get the whole "not enough storage" whinge... A USB type C flash drive, or USB type C caddy/adaptor with m.2 drive etc would easily fill most people's needs to offload your files each day/night/whenever... and they're easier to swap out on the fly than changing out the micro-sd IMO.

I mean, sure it'd be great to have both options open to you, say like having a choice between dual network or micro-sd, like I have on my poco... but TBH I prefer dual network, so I get complete coverage in my area, but it IS nice to have a choice, I get that. I only have 128GB on-board storage on my phone and shoot in 4k60, but I have enough for my needs, and for some much needed music... I just off-load to NAS, or USB type C storage drives as above.

I, for one, haven't been able to use even 20GB, let alone the 128GB my phone came with. I just cannot imagine any scenario where I'd need 512GB of storage.

Exactly, I'm the same way. I mean, people that take tons of photos definitely fill up their storage quickly, but 512GB should be enough even for them.

My friend who has thousands of pictures on her phone has almost filled up her 128GB...and that's over the course of a couple (maybe even few) years.

The only people I see needing more than 512GB are people like my buddy who uses his phone for music and movies at the gym. He easily filled his 256GB of storage.

He is, however, an outlier, and even he admits it's just out of being too lazy to swap his media around, like he should.
