New Phone

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I got a choice between a couple of phones that I really need to get one soon because my contract ran out today, So I have between a, LG G5, Huawei P10, Samsung S7, Huawei P10 Lite, Maybe a LG G6 if my provider if they can get it in stock by the time I get a new phone. The uses it will encounter are, taking photos, taking videos for my channel (dm me for it), Playing games, Social Media. So which one is better for my uses?

ONE Plus FIVE...

 


Simple rules:

- don't fxxx pay if it is fxxx free.

- If it works, don't update it.

- You don't know how, just do it, you will learn something.

- Test, retest, test again, and maybe it will work.

- Trust no one, think by yourself, checks facts again. Earth is not flat, dumber.

- Don't trust alternate facts. True is true, false is false. Only lies interferes.

- My favorite quote: you have a brain, don't you ?? So use it.

- Sometimes size matter !!! So stop trolling as i do myself.

- google moto was: don't be evil. My moto is: screw it.

- open source is a lifestyle.

Personally I'd go with the p10 since it has an awesome camera even though video is limited to 1080p with no ois. The kirin 960 performs about on par with the snapdragon 835 and reviewers have said it feel noticeably more snappy in games with fewer frame rate drops compared to their snapdragon counterparts excluding perhaps the OP5.

It would be on a tripod for some of my channels videos and othertimes it would be on a gorrila pod

Well I mixed up the p9 and the p10. The p10 has ois and it records in 4k so it's just a monster of a camera performer. Here are some pretty in depth pieces on it. I also recommend watching the full review of it by Pocketnow as there's some pretty good insight to other qualities of it.

Ok Im fine with shooting in 4k and editing it because of the future

Keep in mind that he’s talking about the P10 Lite, which has a different camera setup than the P10.

 

OP, out of those, I would definitely go with the Galaxy S7. It’s a great all-rounder.

OP mentioned p10 and p10 lite.

Also I'd agree if all of my friends who have it have issues with software or the phone stuttering and just being weird. Plus Samsung updates...

The S7 isn’t as bad tbh.

 

The first Samsung in a while that I actually liked

The s4 is the only phone that i truly miss xD

I hated the S4. The S5 wasn’t any better. The S6 was nearly good but ruined by the crappy battery life.

 

The S7 was way better. I had a Note7 and loved it until it was recalled.

True. The s4 had a bunch of useless features. I think it's nostalgia for me because it was the first smart phone that i had that wasn't crap X) I was never a fan of the s5 and I think they really messed up the s6. S7 edge is sexy and damn that s8 :x Really want a note 7 tbh. Regardless of recalls.

I wouldn’t mind an S4 GPe tbh.

I would say P10 if you're going to be using the camera a lot. If you plan of flashing it with a custom ROM maybe not, from what I understand the Kirin SoC isn't very developer friendly. 

 

The S7 is the safe choice, though also not very root/ROM friendly.

 

The G6 is arguably the best all around phone out of the bunch (I'd stay away from the G5). There's the risk of bootloop, but I personally think it's exaggerated with the G6, but regardless with Android O that risk should hopefully be minimized.

I don't plan on making any custom ROMs or anything, The G6 is out of stock for my provider and I don't plan on changing any time soon, The S7 can't be expanded like the G5 G6 and P10 since storage is a must for my phones since I use more than 5gb for my apps without any music or podcasts ( missed WAN shows)

If you don't want to (or can't) wait for the G6 to come back in stock, I think you'll enjoy the P10 especially for the camera.
