Android bread

Recommended Posts

I broke the screen on my S6 a few months ago and replacing it wasn't worth it, so I've been using  the auld S4 and it's been fucking infuriating. I am sick of it.

 

My EE contract is about to run out and since I don't get a 20% discount as a broadband customer anymore they no longer have me by the baws. I am thinking I will just buy a handset and do a sim only deal with whoever will give me loads of data.

 

What phone should I get? It has to be available at the end of this month, I cannot wait any longer or I might die.

If I were in your position, I would probably go for a Google Pixel

I have a 6P, which is apparently slightly bigger than the XL, and it's... fine? I can kind of fake it and use it with one hand, but I usually just use both. I can't imagine using anything bigger, though. I have small-ish hands too.

 

Hope this helps!

The Pixel will be faster to receive updates. It's also supposedly super quick when it comes to touch interaction.

 

The S8 and S8+ are bigger than the Pixels and clearly look better from the front. The back is some glass nonsense though.

Are you trying to convince me to not spend loads of money, Heart Space? Get outta here!

 

Do you know what I did the other night? I cashed oot for £35 on my six game accumulator when Spurs were losing. Would've won £350+ if I'd just left it :lol:

 

I don't ever cash out, I only ended up doing it because I was at the Celtic game twiddling my thumbs. In a way it's Brendan Rodgers' fault.

 

It's eating me up inside.

What are you really paying for with the Pixel and other £500-£700 phones? Other than a proper bo camera? My phone was £160 new and it does everything I want it to fast, it looks nice, the camera is decent and the battery lasts for days. 

 

Android phones increase in price because of what's inside them. Sometimes it's for a lot of stuff you don't need, sometimes it's stuff that actually matters.

The only time I ever see what phones are out is when I'm getting a new one, which is every two years when I get one with the auld contract. Why the FLIP would I be salivating over the stats between those times? I bet you don't even bother! I bet Mikey and his pals do though. You don't need to try to look cool in front of them by pretending you do it when you don't even need a phone m8.
