    @DrMacintoshyou have any idea on how to make the UI of my iPhone smaller? I know they made the UI larger in iOS 11 (my daily was 6s+ 10.3.3 until yesterday, where I got a 12 pro max) but it looks like it barely puts up any more content despite being a much larger screen because the text is so large.
    I am already using the smallest size font with no display zoom (accessibility or the thing called display zoom in display and brightness)

    so all of my reception issues on my 6s for the past 5 years has been caused by:
    - literally it being so ancient it doesn't support 600mhz or 850mhz in my area
    Which means that I've been only using 1900mhz ... so THATS why my coverage goes from -80 to -100 to -117 to NO SERVICE... and I've always seen anywhere from -110 to -127

    themctipers got a reaction from TopHatProductions115 for a status update, I am both ready to get another iPhone yet disappointed that I am buying another iPhon   
    I am both ready to get another iPhone yet disappointed that I am buying another iPhone for myself
    Earlier this year I thought I could hold onto my 6s for another year, but not anymore (everything is super slow, cracked display, random amazon tier battery). I really wanted 120hz but it's just not happening.. I also was hoping that there would be good competition from android manufacturers.. nothing appeals to me though.
     
    LG - garbage software.. not worth considering, even on steep discount
    Pixel - garbage hardware for a premium price, might as well buy a iPhone
    OnePlus - only 7 pro was worth it, the 7T and 8 wasn't appealing (price)
    Razer - RP3 is dead
    ASUS - ROG phone 3 really expensive instead of being a banging midrange device
    Xiaomi - a lot of these phones just aren't viable due to not having US LTE bands, but K30 ultra is not even coming out of China
     
    Samsung - ... I wanted the S20, but then 1080p 120hz upscaled to 1440p for 1000$. I personally can't notice it but it's the same as the iPhone XR/11, I can't notice the difference between 326ppi and 400+, but I just can't live with myself knowing its like 1366x768. This is in addition to the fuck you that is no software updates after 2 years, and no security patches after 3 years
    I waited for the S21, which was supposed to fix it to be 1440p/120hz but only S20 FE happened which sucks. Note 20 was also a pick for me but the note 20 is actually MORE EXPENSIVE than the iPhone this year 


    please ignore the 'note 20', there is only the 'note 20 ultra' which is actually the normal phone.
     
     
    Really excited for A14, coming from a dying A9. 2 node jumps (16nm to 5nm), 2nd gen in house GPU (A11 was first), and like 3 generations of 50% faster CPU.. Hopefully it's about as large in a usability bump going from the A4 to the A9 (my first phone upgrade; I was debating between a note 5 and a 6s+ at that time). The 765G can go commit no breathing, knowing it's still somehow comparable to A9. Wifi 6 is a bonus since I already have a wifi 6 router
     
    edit: if anyone has another point of view or contention, please do tell. I want all the opinions on this before deciding

    Since the T480 died I've been using my MSI as a replacement laptop and it sucks so much. I know in my head that upgrading from an i5 2410m to a i5 3320m is not that much in raw CPU performance, but it really was a nice overall upgrade. I ended up buying a ThinkPad X230 because it was nice and small (I've been using a netbook and I really appreciate how small the footprint is), it comes with a battery, and I can RAM/BCLK/iGPU OC on it.
    In Cinebench R15, it's only about 30cb faster by stock, but it feels a lot more responsive than the MSI for general day to day tasks. It also has a competent iGPU that can actually not drop any frames at 768p, and it is built a shit ton better (because it's a business laptop). The performance does not really bother me as day to day, it feels the same as the T480 despite having half the cores, half the threads, a quarter of the ram, and like half the single core performance. 
    It's 768p display is actually a upgrade from the MSI. It is just smaller at the same resolution -> higher PPI, and so it feels nicer to use. The panel (despite it being 6bit TN) is actually a upgrade as well; colours look better, contrast is better, and it gets brighter. Keyboard is fantastic as always, even with the 'gimped' layout.
    The trackpad is atrocious because of the drivers. Physically, I feel it is fine and it may work nice in Linux but in Windows it is unusable. Too sensitive and jittery, and it's about as large as my AirPods Pros case. Another issue is that it interferes with the trackpoint polling rate if it is enabled, and so I have disabled it in the bios.
    The only issue with this laptop is the SD card reader is a bit wonky because I bought a used one off of eBay and the chassis part of that is broken, but the motherboard is not cracked so I believe I am fine. The only thing I have done to this is upgrade the wifi card from the stock Centrino 2000 N to a Realtek 8812AE (had it laying around). I had to tape pin 51 on the card in order to get Bluetooth working. I used ivyra1n to 'jailbreak' bios unlock the x230 in order to bypass the wifi card whitelist, but in the end I will be using coreboot because I want to OC using XMP and XTU does not work for me on the 'jailbroken' bios to oc the iGPU.

    Red dead redemption 2 on PC looks absolutely fantastic, even when I'm playing at lowest settings at 4k it beats out metro exodus at lowest
     
    but it gets even better because it supports async .. higher averages
    AND it gets even better because there's a lot of options that don't impact frame rates much and makes it so much prettier:
    AF to 16x
    Texture quality to ultra
    reflections and mirror quality to high
    medium volumetric fog (far), ultra (close)
    Particles, tesslearion, fur quality, far shadow quality all high
     
    averaging about 58fps, range is 50-60fps on a badly oc'd VII, which is just a worse 1080ti/2080 or a slightly better 5700XT
