    Well those punch bass and clarity levels by brand mean next to nothing as they all have a MASSIVE variety between their own headphones. The sr950's are harsher that is true but sound amazing with the slightest eq tweak. The sr850's are very flat and great.
     
    The ones you picked are well ok at best really. The akgs are well nothing special. The oneodio are from what I could find pretty decent but won't give you the sound you want and the tribits sound like generic cheapish headphones.
     
    You are shopping in a pricerange where just some wired apples earbuds are amongst the best sounding devices you can get part from certain headphones and there is so much crap you have to weed through.

    Asus Zenfone 6. Thank God they included a headphone jack. I plan to use it at least for 1 more year. I  mainly want to use these with a stationary setup. That's why I'm not much concerned about Bluetooth. I do own tws and wireless neckband earphones as well.

    I'm pretty sure we've established that morality means nothing when it can be completely reversed in a matter of minutes because there is no agreed upon standard in most situations. Which was just demonstrated by that user rather quickly. No point in responding to that person any further.

    if you arent trolling well then you have a weird sense of the world or morality idk.
    never been hostile towards and frankly dont care enough to do so either.
    this conversation with you seems futile so unless you wanna logically counter my valid arguments and have a decent discussion im out.

    ok sure take my wording and criticize it. check the rate for epic store and every other store for devs. check the amount of free games consumers get. if the market becomes open for other players then the price drops. if epic starts becoming the monopoly then steam/apple etc have to drop their prices to compete and if they dont then well their loss but consumers gain. if epic increases its prices, we get options and the consumer/dev isnt in a worse position from where we are right now. it also allows future players to adopt a similar strategy to epic to compete. so whats the freaking issue here?

    parthm got a reaction from Samfisher in disabling windows indexing a good idea on HDD?   
    somebody tell windows that. it bloody thinks its idle even when im gaming with 80 plus cpu and gpu utilization. will randomly start some diagnostic. it will crash because my pc is doing everything to run the game and then starts crash handler which in turn crashes my game.
    theres some difference in working of both for sure. 
    i dont care about search that much in the first place. even i didnt think it would update all the time but articles/yt videos suggest that it gives a boost and i trust windows to fuck shit up.

    parthm got a reaction from SpaceGhostC2C in Facebook invested 5.7 Billion dollars for 9.99% stake in Jio   
    source1
    source2:video
    source3:whatsapp
     
    - source 1
     
    So Facebook invested heavily in India which is really getting really scary now.
     
    For those of you who aren't from India let me clear the situation up.
    Jio (4g LTE cellular network) is owned by Reliance industries and the man at the top is Mukesh Ambani (guy in the video in source 2 )who's one of Asia's richest people.
    He started Jio publicly in September 2016 and in 4 years already is India largest network operator with 370 million plus subscribers (3rd largest in the world)
    He did this by basically destroying the competition by giving away totally free sim cards and charged nothing for LTE for around a year or more.
    Because of him alone the LTE rates in India are cheap.
    for eg. 
    heres a monthly plan for jio 
    2.61 USD gives you
    1.5 GB data/day after that slower speed i.e 42GB/month
    unlimited jio to jio calling
    1000 minutes free
    100 sms/day free
    jio apps - free streaming apps with quite a lot of content. tv shows, music, among other things.
     
    Back to Facebook now.
    Facebook bought whatsapp a while back which currently has around 2 billion users and of those more than 400 million just in India.
    - data from source 3
    Whatsapp is everywhere in India.
     
    Even the local grocery seller (not a shop) Whatsapps the price of veggies and you can buy them by replying. he will deliver those to your doorstep.
    Facebook already tried digital payments with Whatsapp which failed badly.
    The video in source 2 talks about integrating Whatsapp with Jio and allowing digital payments.
     
    This has a HUGE potential. 
    Jio is already at a position where it will dominate the network operator market. There are only 3 major players out of which one is on the verge of collapse (Vodafone India)
    the combination of both Whatsapp and Jio is deadly as the customer base is already quite huge and may not even have many options to choose otherwise.
    We all know Facebook cant be trusted at all.
    I really fear giving such sensitive data to Facebook.

    My Galaxy S9 is showing ads in the built-in Samsung Weather app. It isn't just the cheap phones.
     
    This right here is reason enough for me to deal with not having a headphone jack and switch back to an iPhone. Fuck getting ads on a flagship device.

    parthm reacted to yian88 in Mobile manufacturers show ads in ui- realme,xiaomi,samsung.   
    Xiaomi added option to disable them, altough its off by default, not sure if you have an account if the option is saved and preserved when you move to other phone or reset.
    This is all the fault of the industry and Google mainly, they are the #1 ads whore they promote the entire PlayStore apps with garbage ads monetization, most apps are complete trash ads+in app purchase, if Google doesnt sets a standards to not allow ads in UI due to spyware, security issues, data consumption and privacy invasion others will start doing this more and more, they will steal your location, what you type, what you do and make a full profile of you for ads and data selling just like Cambridge Analitica all over again, its a gold mine.
    The only way to stop it is for people to be informed and buy phones without ads its the best way to say no, but we know the majority doesnt care, they dont care about privacy,  -10 IQ is the majority of people, they love to be ignorant otherwise they have to think and worry, that hurts brainz...
     
    Best solution for now is to use system wide ad block but most of those solutions require root sadly.
    Blokada would be the best non root solution.

    news link
    another source
     
    I know most of you guys outside Asia don't have a lot of Xiaomi or Realme products but even low end Samsung phones have ads in their ui.
    Still these are huge companies selling a lot of phones and what worries me is that they could so easily harvest the data to serve users personalized ads!
    I don't know if they already do it but just imagine instead of your online activities being tracked now manufacturers track our daily usage to serve us ads. How long until that happens?
     
    Realme (spawn of oppo-bbk electronics so vivo,one plus sister company) has now started the ads in ui thing but at least from news sources it seems you can disable them. samsung had also followed xiaomis model of showing ads in the ui. This is a really irritating direction these companies are headed in.
    At least in India many people dislike Xiaomi for their ads and they still sell a lot of phones!  If this continues soon consumers wont have a choice of having ad free phones in the low end market. Now, realme also has offerings which compete in the value flagship category along with one plus and xiaomi which aren't exactly cheap so just how much must they earn through ads if they're ready to take all the damage to their brand and reputation from showing ads to consumers? Realme has already called shots on xiaomi for serving ads and now theyre going back on their words.
     
    Another aspect to consider is that a person has already paid for the hardware and software that was installed. Can companies now generate revenue after they have sold you the product through software updates like this? It is similar to what linus was talking about in a wan show about tesla cars increasing their speed through a paid software update but at least that has an additional benefit on top of what you have already paid for. I know it allows them to produce phones with extremely thin margins and compete but at what privacy cost to the consumer?

    According to the article posted on Techquila, Ryan Shrout (Intels chief performance strategist) says on medium that adding cores doesnt improve performance before amds new launches. the article basically bashes his statements.he didn't even test an AMD CPU just tested gaming at different core counts.
    according to ryan 8 cores is the seet spot and any more cores wont help in gaming.
    the testing methodology is itself flawed.
    is this really what independent journalism should be like? the core count opinion sounds dated.

    since i live in india i can talk about the indian scene.
    as i said in the original post asus never took the indian market seriously before but now they've done promotions with youtubers and what not.
    2. they literally sent their devices to popular xda developers like arnova for gcam and to lineage team to kickstart custom development along with releasing sources.
    3.If asus prices their phones competing with samsung they wouldnt sell.just the fact itself that they are offering phones at cheaper prices means they want them to sell.they arent launching phones with a high price tag. they're actually being competitive.
    hence i said they're trying in the mobile space.

    let me start by saying im currently using the asus 6z/zenfone 6 and im a happy user.
     
    asus has been doing some great work in the mobile sector recently with the asus zenfone 6, rog phone 2.
    the hardware is simply amazing.
    software side
    theres an android beta program running for a while now and asus has finally started rolling out the official ota.
    they not only released the sources but also provided phones to popular devs like arnova for gcam support.
    theres custom roms available and they're timely with their updates. my android security never went more than 2 months old.
     
    the phone has been good with the camera(good enough),hw,software and let me just say this about the battery
    the phone gives 2 day battery life
    12 hrs sot
    2 days single 4g volte sim standby
     
     
    sales
    i dont have any official figures but when the rog phone went on sale it went out of stock in both india and china. 
    do you think asus can pull this off successfully under such a competitive market if they continue like this?
