well I'm picky as fuck so I was getting some fairly mild but for me very annoying problems with network connectivity, like, suddenly dropping out of the network for no good reason so I decided to start trying different ROMs, I fucked the recovery up once during that time but now I have a custom CM13 ROM and TWRP is functioning normally

There are some gaps, but you would probably only notice if you wanted to watch or shoot an HD movie or something. If you want to spend an extra $450 on a slightly better movie experience, be my guest. In every other way, these phones are just fine. They exceed the Turbo 2 in some areas.
#224 - anon (06/25/2016) [-]
Good luck getting a decent phone for that little these days. Besides, a smartphone like an iPhone or Galaxy is really more like a handheld computer with a phone function built into it than a proper cell phone.

See about getting a new Verizon plan. I'm moving back to America soon, so I am looking at service prices. Last I was there, I paid $45/mo for unlimitied text and calling, and .25 gb what a joke . Now, according to the website, $45/mo gets you several gb/mo, and there's even a $30 option with 1gb.
Also, never buy phones on contract, just pay for them up front. Contract phones are like leased cars, a nice scheme companies use to squeeze you for more money.

Did you guys not listen to his videos? Apple products are of great value if the device does what YOU want it to do. Maybe the motherboard is a piece of shit, that can't be argued, but if you spend 30 minutes less on your phone making business calls or typing e-mails, than on an android, that means an iPhone is more valuable for YOU.
I am not saying that an iPhone works faster, does things faster or anything, all I'm saying is that the value of a product is measured by the requiremens that YOU have.

I'll gladly pay for a $600 S7 Edge for the novelty of the screen and the specs within. Why? It'll last me a good 5 years at the very least and will do everything I need it to. I'll also gladly pay Verizon 100+ for a 4 phone plan with 6gb shared data and have 4G LTE literally everywhere in the United States, and even in many places in Canada/Mexico, at no extra charge, rather than get Sprint or something and get 4G in my hometown, maybe, and probably not anywhere that isn't a major city.
That's why people pay for Verizon (The largest and most successful carrier in the US) and for more expensive phones (They will last and be useful for a very long time, as well as looking good).
#204 - frostdrachen (06/24/2016) [-]
What the hell? I get unlimited 4g internet and unlimited messages / calls for 30€ (about 34-35$) and it's probably the most expensive packet for normal consumers. You can get it on higher speeds than 50 mbps but they're unnecessary.
Welcome to Finland I guess, the home of the mobile phones.
#191 - anon (06/24/2016) [-]
....i pay 2€/month for unlimited data use BUT the speed is quite slow... Still fast enough for casual browsing
Texts and such are couple cents each though.. But i mostly use the internet anyways
#75 - mypickinuraxe (06/24/2016) [-]
I hate when people use "It's overpriced" as an argument for something. I'm not poor and can afford an expensive phone. I saw this one /b/ thread where the guy said how he's getting a new laptop and you had to convince him not to buy a mac, assuming money wasn't an issue. I don't have a screenshot, but I'm pretty sure no one could really come up with anything other than it's harder to play games because you have to dual boot to windows. I was given a mac as a gift so I use it for everything but gaming.
#32 - pokemonstheshiz (06/23/2016) [-]
"way overpriced" isn't really a valid argument anymore. Look at Android flagships of the same specs, they're all around the same price. Sure, there's cheaper Androids that work decently, but no one is buying an iPhone because they want a "just decent" phone, they want something with all the bells and whistles
#210 - anon (06/24/2016) [-]
"over priced" is the definition of a product NOT having the bells and whistles one is paying for. le mark up
#152 - anon (06/24/2016) [-]
And within a couple months realize they only needed four features and the rest never get used.
#39 - anon (06/23/2016) [-]
android phones usually have much better specs though
#241 - lisreal (06/29/2016) [-]
My Droid Turbo supposedly has better specs than the 6 Plus, but its battery is disappointing and is laggier than my 6 Plus that I use for media mainly. I love my Turbo and all I've owned is Android (Droid, Droid RAZR, S3, Turbo), but I walked into that store with my mind set on a 6 Plus last year. After seeing the prices though I quickly said fuck that and got the Turbo for literally the price of tax not including a $150 account credit promo for trading in my S3. I basically got paid for taking that phone out of the store so Android phones tend to be much cheaper since there are so many versions and (at least in Verizon) a lot of promotions going on. I hate to say it but I like the look and simplicity of the 6 Plus, but structurally its a fragile piece of shit, overpriced, and sickeningly unsupported by Apple like everything else they make. Unless they have a budget friendly phone (not like the 5c) that I can get, I am sticking to Android or I'd even try Windows before shelling out $600+ to them.

"Any phone over $100 probably isn't worth all the parts inside."
So, companies charge more than the cost to make the product? Who'da thunk it
As someone who's used low end phones, there's a big difference if you use it often. Mid-tier phones are still expensive, but for the most part the high end phones do have a lot of features and reliability, you just have to determine for yourself if they're worth the extra cost. Being a product a lot of people carry around and use all the time, they deem that worth spending the extra money on.
#41 - marno (06/23/2016) [-]
Not unless they last 20 years! Because they would have to in order to meet the cost to use ratio of the phones that I buy. I really don't care if you have a "dual core typhoon processor" you won't be playing angry birds or sending texts any faster than me, your internet won't be any better, and both our phones will crack if dropped from high enough. Maybe you can take nicer pictures, and your speakers are better. So that's something. Pretty much everybody uses earbuds on their phones anyway. I don't think I'm missing out on enough to shell out an extra four or five hundred dollars every couple years.
#93 - anon (06/24/2016) [-]
Lol, dual core? Shiiit mine has 8 cores. And for all the productivity done on phones now. There are plenty of places that can use or need it. So phones over your price range are quite worth it if you can use it
#45 - pokemonstheshiz (06/23/2016) [-]
Most phone companies have upgrade plans that let you get a newer version every X years for a couple hundred. Either way, you're obviously not the type of person who enjoys/appreciates things like this, so why do you care? I'm sure you spend extra money on some useless bullshit occasionally, just to splurge. So why judge people who splurge on a product that will last them several years?
#62 - moronsky (06/23/2016) [-]
if you don't think that high end smartphones are worth it, that's fine, but as pokemonstheshiz said, why judge people who do think so. There are people who may use their phone more often than you do, or use it as a multimedia device for watching series and other stuff.
And of course they will cost more than the raw cost of the material, someone has to design and concept that shit, code the android skin they want to ship with it, give customer support and give updates. Of course there are companies who charge WAY more than it is worth, but there are also companies who don't (oneplus one basically sells the same phone like the samsung galaxy s7 with the only major differences are that it's "only" FHD and has a slightly worse camera for 399$, which is still a lot of money, but costs at least 300$ less than it's competitors)
Besides, "you won't be playing angry birds or sending texts any faster than me, your internet won't be any better, and both our phones will crack if dropped from high enough." this are the exact reason why they pay more, because of better build quality(yes there are also flagship smartphones who can survive a drop), to surf faster, be play games better, have little conveniences to write faster/more efficently or to multitask better
If you don't like it, that's fine, but other may find it unreasonable that some of us pay so much for a gaming PC or a nice car. Choose what makes you happy, just don't be dick about it or be to naive when you buy something
#169 - oneentity (06/24/2016) [-]
I have got Oneplus One for more than a year now and that shit runs perfectly.
It's fast, smooth, makes great photos and batery lasts forever.
I've even dropped it on concrete/stone from 1+ m height several times and only damage I got was slightly splintered edge of the screen protector.
#30 - ChewyConor (06/23/2016) [-]
$45 per month is still retarded to pay out.
Buy a half decent phone outright with cash or on just about any credit card and pay it off monthly and then get a sim-only plan. It will save save you money.
I'm in the UK soay be different but I recently bought my phone for £130 ($200) and pay £14($21)/month for 4GB data and more calls and texts than I can get through (Ive been on that plan for a while now so could probably find a better deal).
Total cost over 2 years is £466 ($700) or an average of less than £20 ($30) per month.
#140 - captchakid (06/24/2016) [-]
Okay on Verizon I got my phone new (Galaxy S4) for $200 on a 2 year contract, after that I owned the phone (Its been 5 years). My parents pay for 4 lines, on 6gb shared data (Have never once ran over 4gb used in a month), costing each of us ~$30/m per line. It has unlimited calls/text for everyone.
That's $920 bi-annually if i upgraded every 2 years (I don't, because phones last well past their upgrades). I get 4G LTE everywhere in the US and free international calls/text. I have never once not had service in any of the 20+ states I've traveled in over the last 5 years, including towns with populations less than 2k and cities with more than 2 million.
#35 - marno (06/23/2016) [-]
The monthly plan you describe does not exist in the US. We have a bad problem with telecom monopolies and collusion. You can buy a phone and a sim, and do prepaid. That is what I do. But no US citizen has paid a $20 phone bill since the mid 90's for a landline. And even then it was rare.
$45 is pretty cheap by our standards. I had a plan for $30 but they took it away and made me switch to something with less data, and twice as expensive. So now I'm on the $45 thing, which isn't the CHEAPEST I found, I could go lower, but it would be on a network that doesn't service my home. So I got what I got.
#38 - ChewyConor (06/23/2016) [-]
Fair enough. That is some bullshit there though. That must suck. I'd have expected it to be cheaper over there but certainly not THAT much more expensive.
My landline phone at home cost me literally negative money; I told my broadband provider I might look elsewhere if they didn't give me a better deal so they lowered my total bill by throwing in a landline and calling it a combo deal.
#33 - anon (06/23/2016) [-]
Whatever is the most private whilst also being a smartphone.
And it should be water restiant with a dedicated camera button and have a lanyard that attaches to the lower left corner of the phone.
#21 - marno (06/23/2016) [-]
Blackberry PRIV probably. But that's just for the physical keyboard. I also actually remove and replace my battery and use SD card slots so apple products are not for me. But the specs are good, and the OS is nice. Windows phone OS is my favorite, I love being able to organize my home screen with all the live tiles in whatever shape and size I want. But there are almost no apps for it. I'd take iOS over Android, but android phones usually have better design options.
#24 - satanicllladvocacy (06/23/2016) [-]
fair enough, I hate full keyboard and I used to have a blackberry, biggest complaint is how difficult it was to keep clean, especially in so-cal where you sit in your car 6 hours a day sweating on your phone. the iphone 5 is the best phone design there is imo, it didnt take me long to get used to the keyboard, but i use talk to text 90% of the time anyway so it doesnt matter. i just like the size and weight of it...like it has actual weight and it is pretty durable despite how much i abuse it.
