Seems like the headphone socket is being killed on the new Google Pixel phones. Embrace the future people.

 

Funny, that's one reason I bought a Pixel instead of an iPhone.

Well the iPhone X has come and gone, I couldn't bring myself to buy one. Pixel 2 seems to have moans about screens. I've now started looking at the Huawei Mate 10 Pro - still £699 though.

TBH Deft I don't think you can go wrong by choosing a Huawei phone.I've had the Honor 7 for a while now on a contract with 3. It's a really nice device and super easy to use plus it's pretty big which is perfect for me as I can't use poxy little phones properly at all.

I'd definitely recommend having a look at the model you mentioned if you're not fussed about switching over from the
i-Phone.

Im due for an upgrade soon so I might even end up getting the Mate 10 pro myself if it's offered to me by 3.

Fuck it, pre-ordered the Mate 10 Pro - fuck you Apple and Google in the smallest way possible (I still use iTunes and will be running Android so hey ho).

Seeing as my reviews are much sought after, here is my opinion after 24 hours.

 

It's somewhat unnerving now having a phone significantly larger than my cock - I didn't really check the dimensions before I ordered it, though I knew it was reasonably large. Being a midget it just about fits in my jeans pocket.

It's USB C connector and no headphone jack, means it won't be quite as easy to find random micro USB chargers that fit when visiting people. I've never actually used my phone much to listen to music, but losing the headphone socket could be aggravating. You get USB C earbud headphones with it (white, what cunt wears white headphones?) and 3.5mm jack adaptor too, plus the rapid charger. I like the USB C connector - like Apple's lightning one it isn't orientation specific, so no more jamming micro USB in the wrong way around and breaking things. Charges up mega quick and battery seems really decent (most of the reviews mention this).

The phone comes with a screen protector laminate thing already on it (like those aftermarket ones). I think this is ok, but it means you feel an edge when swiping at the end of the screen. Kinda ruins the almost edge to edge screen experience slightly. You also get a soft clear backed case to put the phone in with it too, so it's protected straight out the box whilst you decide on an amazing case to buy.

Going from pure Android to Huawei EMUI is ok, mostly feels the same but with some Huawei apps. I'm not massively into customising homescreens and stuff - it has a couple of options, every app as an icon (Apple style) or the usual Android app drawer thing. I suppose all these companies feel they need to add their branding and flavours of apps. So far it seems ok, but like all these things once you have started using Google Music or Google Photos, then your phone tries to default to something else or tries to sign you up for Huawei cloud. I'm trying to figure out a smart way of getting my iTunes library on there now that I have enough storage (128 GB).

Super widescreen screen is alright, though there are few apps that aren't really optimised for it, so you get some warnings and options for full screen mode.

The notable thing for me moving from my ancient Nexus 4 is the quality of the camera. The portrait mode for selfies makes me look super gorgeous with bright red luscious lips. Mmmm yummy.

Happy with it so far, definitely feels like a premium phone - though for £699 it fucking should do!

I just suggest iPhone (or iDevices) if the user needs all the audiovisual apps for living (more or less for the mac) but with the lately movements (price, target, improvements...) I’m starting considering go for dedicated hardware (sampler and so) or old mac ducktaped to a controller. I always buy the nearest to discontinnued ones (aka iPhone 5s atm, SE maybe the next and so...) since I don’t like to carry a bag for my phone. Call me weirdo but I like to carry these on my pocket. lol

Anyways when my actual phone get laggy as fuck (by OS update) I will check the market at that moment and choose. The old will enter in my collection of “iOS embed pseudo dedicated hardware” (like my iPhone 4) and keep going until Apple lost completely their minds. Then them will become just another luxury phone brand without any differentiation value.

So let me get this straight Deft, you spent £700 on something called a Whoarewe Mate 10 because Danswift told you to? ;)

Bloody phones. My contract is almost up and I don't know what to do myself TBH. I've always had iPhones in the past but I like the newer ones less and less. Partly because my current 6 does everything I could want it to besides it measly 16gb storage. What I really need is the phone I have in newer condition for less money each month but the nature of phone contract deals seems to penalise my desires to the point that you're pushed towards the newer hardware as it's little more monthly. I've seriously considered moving away from Apple as IMO they are no longer the company they used to be, but rival brand's products are similarly priced and I can't be arsed to learn a new system really.

Did you know Huawei is pronounced Wah-Way? You do now. If you are happy with a smaller screen and want to stay Apple, I think they are refreshing the SE and it will be more reasonably priced in the general context of rip-off.

Knowledge and acceptance are two very different things ;)

How do they pronounce "Mate" then?

I'm also a member of Club Huawei with my Nexus 6P. I do really like the look of the newer phones with tiny bezels, but technology-wise I don't really have any reason to upgrade.

My 6s battery is getting pretty bad, I think Im going to come out of contract and put a new battery in for £40. Im not wanting for any spangly new features right now either - and I like the thin bezels too, Ill wait until Im swimming in cash or theyre mainstream money tho I think...
Dooban - don't be afraid to talk freely... I'm sure nobody here would take the piss.
