New Phone?!?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was looking at what my next phone I want to get (have an Iphone now). My phone is starting to act up so I want to start looking now. I was looking at the OnePlus5T and I really like it but I was wondering if I should wait for the OnePlus6. I was also considering the Razer phone what were your guys thoughts.

Which iPhone do you have exactly? Is it really old or is it like, a 6 or 7 ?
You could probably just bring it to an Apple store to have it "fixed" by a "genius" and it will cost you less than a new phone or send it in for actual repairs if need be, possibly could just be the battery that's dying and Apple is throttling your phone's performances to "keep up the charge longer", which you can have replaced for $25 for the next year.

Especially if it's still under warranty.

There's a section for this. It's not the General section. You should really look before posting.

Welcome to the forum.

 

The OP6 is a long way off. So if you need something sooner than later, it's out of the picture.

You could wait but I wouldn't do it. It depends on how badly you need a new phone. The 5T is an amazing phone where the razer phone is more a gimmick in my opinion.

How so? The high refresh panel has legitimate usage improvements.

Welcome to the forum.

Please just report it to the mod team and we'll take care of it. Backseat moderating is against the Community Standards. :)

Yes, heaven forbid should we point out peoples mistakes in hopes they don't make them again.

If you want to discuss it, feel free to send me a PM; let's keep this thread on-topic.

I disagree because if people are not informed of their mistakes and they dont realize then they might make the same mistake again

As I said to dizmo, if you want to discuss this please send me a PM about it.

As it stands right now, it's a rule of the forum. If a user does something wrong we want users to report it to us and we'll take care of it; the mod team will not unilaterally punish people for making a mistake, and most of the time we'll simply inform the user of why we took action and explain the importance and relevance of the subsections of the forum.

Please don't post more responses about this in here. The OP is looking for help choosing a new phone, not for a discussion about backseat moderation.

Well what do you want in a phone? What about your iPhone that you like, didn't like, or is outright missing? What would you like changed? What do you use it for most of the time? How long do you want it to last? How much are you willing to spend? Are you willing to root or install custom roms?

 

Its your phone and what you like and want should take precedance over what everyone else prefers. Also keep in mind we will assume you are in the US if you quote us a $ budget. Price and availability of products are not the same across the globe.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.
