Unified "Help Me Choose A Phone" Thread

  • @hakz, yes I have. Without it, mas malala pa. @genepomelo, everything else about it is great, yung gps lang hindi. I'm sure hindi naman lahat ng units ganun. Pero when I google my gps problems, maraming meron. And to think na flagship pa yan. :( There's something wrong with the physical positioning daw, kaya mahina. There's an ultimate way to fix it pero it involves opening up and repositioning. Maybe someday. Also, yung soft back button needs more pressure that other smartphones. Kasi slightly raised yung part na yun. Hindi pantay sa left side. Kaya medyo ididiin mo yung pag-pindot. Nasanay na ako so hindi na sya hassle. If ever, just test the gps properly before you buy. Kung lock agad, that means ok yung unit.
  • Also, try to get a unit that's already lollipop 5.1 na kasi when I upgraded, naku, tinamaan pa lalo yung accuracy ng GPS. I also googled this, and yes, multiple hits din. :( May mga solution so far na try ko worked for a few days tapos balik drifting ulit.

    Eto pa nakakaiyak. I have wifi on di ba, tapos patay sindi yung gps ko while I'm travelling. So waze switches from the circle dot to the arrow...back and forth, paulit ulit. Ang masama nyan, hindi pareho yung position ko na nadedetect ng wifi triangulation at ng GPS positioning. So parang seesaw up and down paulit ulit ang cursor. Ang weird nya. This only started happening about a week after I upgraded to 5.1 android.
  • base in my actual camera test, iphone 5s>samsung a7 2015
    anu kaya mas malinaw na camera iphone 5s vs a5 2016?

    balak mag change from 5s to a5 2016
  • ^^^

    Sa opinion ko sir mas realistic ang photos ng mga iphones. Yung s7 edge nagsample shot ako parang edited na yung photo.
  • hi po ulit. hindi pa din ako makapag-decide kung anong 20k phone ang bibilhin ko. hehe. anu-ano ba mga magagandang phones around 20k?

    Sony Xperia M5 (2 year warranty)

    LG Nexus 5X

    OnePlus 2

  • ok po ba ang iphone SE?
  • Sa mga nagcoconsider ng Samsung Note 4, if possible, paki test nyo mabuti yung GPS nya kasi sobrang palpak ang sa akin. Talo pa yung GPS ng unit ko sa lowly Samsung S Duos ng kasama ko. :(

    I have installed so many GPS apps na, mahina pa rin. Defect daw yun ng some Note 4 units. Di naman lahat. Pero di ako nag-iisa. Hirap tuloy gamitin ang waze. Tapos ngayon after updating to Android 5.1.1 lalong lumala pa.

    Other than that, perfect na for my needs ang Note 4. :)

    Samsung Duos ang pinaka OK na gps below 20k sa samsung brand na nasubukan ko.
    kung gusto mo maganda gps on all line up (except yung walang glonass), sony xperia kunin mo :)
  • okay ba ang flash plus 2 for 7k? any alternatives?
  • @rnlnx hanap ka ng iba sir.. dami bad review about sa Flash Plus 2 2gb version.. kung gusto mo wait mo ung 3gb version or wait mo magka asus zenfone 3 or try zenfone max.. try mo din ung xiaomi redmi 3.. I own flash 2 before.. binenta ko tapos bumili ako ng xiaomi redmi 3 pro.. ok naman sana ung flash 2 kaso nakukulangan ako sa battery at storage tyaka madali topakin ung speaker nya..
  • Pa post lang po :)

  • project ara? pfffft. recent updates says hindi ganun ka-modular yung device itself, hindi napapalitan yung processor and other internals, only some "modules" na add-on like camera, speakers and projectors >:[

    matagal na, naunahan pa ng LG G5.
  • Experia Z5 will give you what you want. Just add a littlee bit amount.
  • @Hakz

    Awts anyare? nung nagdemo sila fully modular ung phone
    Di siguro pumayag ung mga gumagawa ng modules kasi malulugi sila :(
  • ^ first generation ara phones yan eh. Siguro di pa stable yung paggawa ng module for CPUs and RAM. Siguro marketing strategy din yun para big leap ang kalalabasan sa next gen ara phones. And sa tingin ko di papatok ang ara phone. Tingin ko magagaya yan sa Android One ng google. Maganda ang android one but people lack the knowledge about it. And ang posibleng maging target market lang nyan ay yung mga techie at mga mahilig sa unique features. Madami pa ding mas pipiliing bumili ng basic smartphone para gamitin and upgrade for the next few years. Practicality ba. Just my opinion, tho. :)
  • bukas mag aavail ako ng plan sa smart.. ang pinagpipilian ko samsung s7 edge at xperia z5.. alin mas ok sa dalawa.. fan ako ng sony noon pa naka 3 sony phones na ako ehh kaya subok ko na sony. pero willing to try samsung kasi mas ok specs nya ata..
  • Hi again,

    Ask ko lang nag papatanung yung kapatid ko e, nakita daw nya sa Kimpoystore.

    Which is better sa 2... Xiaomi Mi Max or yung Huawei P9 Lite?

    Same price range.. nung nag compare ako parang mas ok ata P9 lite, sabi ko malaki lang screen ni Mi Max.

    Pero di ko alam, so some comments & suggestions will be great.

    TIA
  • @reiko14 - The S7E is a newer device, better spec overall, bigger device. Since sanay ka sa xperia, maninibago ang feel mo since sammy has rounded corners whilst sony has this elegant boxy/edged feel. Maninibago ka din sa S-amoled ng samsung, while it has been a "you like it or you hate it" feature, I pretty much feel at home with it, but for others ayaw na ayaw nila yung color reproduction nya which sometimes is a deal breaker. If you're feeling adventurous, I'd advise you to try out the S7E instead. Then, if hindi mo sya feel, pwede mo naman ibenta dito sa tcp and go back to Sony. If it were me, 7Edge ako without question, but budget constraints keep me from getting one myself. Probably one of the "near perfect" samsung devices for me after the note 3 haha :p

    Madami pa ding mas pipiliing bumili ng basic smartphone para gamitin and upgrade for the next few years.


    true. They envisioned Project Ara as a Desktop PC counterpart. Just can't happen (fow now)... since desktop pc's are just sitting there all day unlike handheld devices that should be a bit tougher. Kung yung state ngayon ng mga devices na hindi modular andami nasisira, pano pa kaya pag lagi tinatanggal hehe
  • @genepomelo.. go for P9 lite.. currently Xiaomi user ako(waiting pa kasi sa s7 edge) ok naman ung Mi Max pero pagdating sa specs sabi mo nga mas ok si P9 lite ka ya go kana dun.. malaki screen ni Mi Max although manipis sya.

    @hakz thanks sa info.. nakapagdecide na ako to pick s7 edge since mas bago nga sya at gusto ko din subukan. huling gamit ko ng samsung phone eh galaxy pocket pa kaya sigurado maninibago ako. and tama ka na kapag di ko nagustuhan pwede ko sya ibenta to buy other phone..
  • Ironic because i think production for modular phone parts is too expensive. Mas mura pa gumawa ng bagong buong phone na "generic" pero high specs such as those by china and local brands. (Economies of scale). Objective supposedly ng modular ay makatipid by just upgrading certain parts pero lalabas na mas makakamura ka pa kung bibili ka ng buong phone na bago at updated na ang specs.
  • @reiko14

    Thanks sir i'll inform my brother about it.. siguro dun nalang nga sya sa P9 Lite if ever..

    Thanks ulit
  • ok ba yung 'Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro'?
  • @mimigs yes ok yan phone na yan.. currently Redmi 3 pro user ako habang di pa dumadating ung bago.. mabilis ang Redmi 3 pro pero msa mabilis ang note 3 at matagal din malowbat
  • Pa-recommend po ng 6.5k to 8k na phone?ung LTE po...tnx
