Are phones ONLY about Style now?

Recommended Posts

I feel his point about the phone being a daily companion is why so many people just won't change phones. I use iphones, often when a new one comes out I'm not blown away, but they consistently do what you want them to do so you buy another when you need an upgrade. 

 

Most people care more about that consistency over buying for some big new feature that you'll barely use or care about.

Well this is the reason this phone isn't going to be sold outside of China.

Also, that problem with hangouts isn't a bug, it's a feature that huawei does as well, aggressive power saving.

 

Ask any chinese and they will tell you the vivo NEX is better (and cheaper)

The phone’s software aggressively killing apps is nothing new, sadly. It’s a tacked-on implementation that they have never fixed either because people didn’t care or Oppo/Vivo didn’t bother to.

 

I used a Vivo as a backup and that damn “power-saving” thing kept killing Google Maps while I was actively using it

I'm on iPhone because it's simple and the OS keeps out of my way. the consistency between iOS and macOS is also nice to have.
