    OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro

    Judging by the smaller Youtube reviews it's having major auto focus issues. That's a shame because they got a lot right about this phone.

    Hard finding my desired features at reasonable price.

    You literally just described the LG V40. The only thing it doesn't do well is mobile VR as it's not Daydream compatible without root.

    Samsung Loads McAfee Antivirus Onto Smart TVs

    So in other words McAffee will slowly consume and corrupt the TV to the point of not working in 6 months?

    Whatever happened to removable batteries?

    Like it or not but those are the reasons. Combine that with the perception that plastic removable backs make for a cheap feeling phone and you have your answer.

    Do you like Android or iPhone better, and why?

    I prefer Android because they are more intuitive to use and the hardware packages offered are better.

    Still want to charge your phone while you sleep?

    I used to leave a phone plugged in as a security camera. It sat plugged in and constantly running for over a year when I discovered that the battery had swollen so bad that broke the phone frame. Since then I'm careful about what's plugged in and for how long. I'm not too concerned about...

    How do I make my phone stop sucking?

    Stop buying Samsung phones. The new phones may be better but everyone I know with a 7 or older has the same problems. I have yet to see a Samsung phone that's a year or two old that isn't a complete dumpster fire.

    Best currently available phone for recording video?

    The V40 records video in HDR10 at double the bit rate of the Samsung when in manual mode (just record in manual mode with auto turned on). The mics on the V40 are better but I've read the bitrate is lower however I have yet to test that as it might be a typo from the site I read that on.

    Best currently available phone for recording video?

    The V40 is your best option for video. It's a pretty big step up from the V30 IMO.

    LG V40 ThinQ - OMG this thing is crazy cool

    I'm debating getting the V40 as the V30 has been the best phone I've ever owned. It's between that or the Mate 20 Pro or waiting for the P30 pro in April. The problem is that I can't find a decent camera comparison as camera reviews are all over the damn place.

    Google Pixel 3

    I get that it's not important to everyone but here is why I found that stuff useful: I used to be big on updates but at this point I think they don't bring as much noticeable change when it comes to day to day usage as they once did so I'm OK getting them late or not at all unless there's a big...

    Google Pixel 3

    I wouldn't say that. The V30 has wireless charging, a wide angle camera, a damn good headphone jack, stereo hd audio recording, an unreal flex mic in the headphone jack, microSD card support, and a comparable software experience. The only compromise I see in the V30 are updates and stereo...

    Google Pixel 3

    At this point the Pixel feels like a phone full of compromises at an exorbitant price. Until they bring back the headphone jack I'm happy with other brands.

    Anyone like the LG V30?

    I've had one since a few weeks after release so I paid full price for mine. It's been a great device so far. That being said the Oreo update isn't treating me kindly. Battery life is a little worse but it's not playing nice with one of my apps and is rebooting every once in a while. I think...
