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.

Wait why did I not buy this phone again? Why do I have my G6?... This is a cheaper phone with better specs. Oh right, headphone jack

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

Cool video, it's just such a shame most phones, in terms of specs, have become somewhat boring.

 

Also, it would be helpful in the camera comparisons you show the photo of whatever phone you're talking about. E.g. when you say "The Mate 10 has more noise", you have the Mate 10's picture show up, so actually compare it without skipping back and forth to compare the photo performance.

I'm guessing Linus has never heard of bluetooth headphones, either that or this phone has no bluetooth capabilities.

 

I don't understand why people have to go run out and annoy everyone w/o headphones, they've been cheep for over 15 years, AND it's never MLP either... It's always some stupid song I (and others) don't want to listen too.

lol, if someone played that song (now knowing it) I would snicker a little, but yes.  Most songs played are quite volgar, loud, etc, so public transit here isn't really child friendly... (preschooling)

It's hard to tell with how people write news and clickbait titles.

Because it is cheap, and does the same as a Samsung or iPhone.

I'm sorry, wut?

How is $25 (both canada and usa) expensive?

https://www.amazon.com/Kinivo-BTH240-Limited-Bluetooth-Headphone/dp/B00N43BPPO

I'm sure there are cheaper ones still... I've used older versions in the past from this company and it was half decent, esp for the price.

 

I own a $400+- phone and I still think spending $50 on a decent pair of bluetooth headphones perfectly acceptable...

Don't forget customs lol... Actually buying the coffee beans is cheap if you ship USPS or under $25 to avoid UPS customs... For everything else (the cans) there's amazon.ca ;)

I have the Global version of the Mix 2 and interestingly I don't have those weird software quirks. Netflix downloaded and installed from the Play Store like it would on any other Android. :)

 

The one thing I wasn't so hot about with the phone was setting up the camera. Mine wanted to automatically "beautify" my selfies and left its watermark on everything. Blegh. Outside of that, I adore it more than the iPhone 8 I sold to get it.

Resident smart (car) fanatic and lover of trijet airliners. One day you'll probably see me on one of those "Hoarders" shows, only I'm buried under a pile of 50 smart cars.
