Since Vivo is the same company as One Plus, wondering if we shall see this on the One Plus 6?

2015 Called and?

2015 called and they want their SOC back!

in the OnePlus 5T forum

Still pretty good, I ordered and canceled the 5t, reason, I bought an Essential Phone. $428 with sales tax, the phone came, the camera was on back order, canceled the camera, the EP-1 came to $292 with sales tax. I know it's a touch and go with Essential and no idea of the future. I'd be happy if I get to Oreo, which will happen.

in the Article: DOJ Sues to Halt AT&T/Time Warner Merger forum

Exactly, Trump hate's CNN, and in every other corporate interest, he has been on their side. All of a sudden, when AT&T refused to divest CNN for the merger, all of a sudden the DOJ steps in. While I am not thrilled with all of these mergers. There is no conflict or monopoly issue with it.

in the Article: DOJ Sues to Halt AT&T/Time Warner Merger forum

Normally I would have agreed with this measure and the same if it was with Comcast. But the real reason is not creating a bloated monopoly, but wanting to force a sale of CNN to a company which is more in tune with Fox and Breitbart.

VPN'd to a Canadian server and upgrade my 3t today to Oreo, don't notice much of a difference, but it's decent to know they kept to their promise. Still the OP5 doesn't have it yet and the the 5t is going to be shipped with Nougat.

I have an unlocked US S8+, went onto Samsung + and was offered the beta program and applied for it. (yesterday). I hope sometime in the next week or two Oreo beta will be offered for me to try. I'm just wondering if I do take the beta Oreo, will I be able to get the official release when it is offered sometime later. I just check again for an OTA and taking a 1309.21mb download. ...

Any other Company?

If any other company put this thing it would be labeled as junk, and good only for freebies or low cost price points for carriers like Cricket, Boost or MetroPCS. BUT, because it has a Nokia branding, people are going to fall over this device.

in the Article: Hands On with the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro forum

I have been reading rumors of this phone for several months, depending on price and availability I'm really considering this phone. I don't do VR, so the resolution is fine by me. While I don't want large bezels, smaller bezels (at least to me) seem to make a large phone easier to handle.

in the Article: Essential Boosts Camera Performance via System Update forum

I happen to like this phone, yeah there's camera problems, still I don't like it enough to buy it. Essential also said there will be a quick Oreo update, then a few weeks back, they said it was 2 month or so away. My feelings if this phone drops in price in a month or two, I'd consider it. Till then no.

To me this seems like chairty/welfare for the rich, ether they should have just bought HTC's phone business out, or spent a defecation ton less have someone else make their Pixel's (which is basically what's going to be done).

in the Article: Virgin Mobile to Phase Android Out Slowly forum

First, don't see how this is going to save them or their parent Sprint. Second, if I go into an Apple Store, buy an iPhone outright unlocked, I can get a year of service for free, or what ever tax and fee's they may occur? Then cancel a year later and just take my phone somewhere else?

I have an unlocked US S8+, how did you do it? Have no interest in rooting, which I doubt could be done. Would like to do the same.

I have a brand new SGS8+ unlocked US version, I can call or order and pay for the sim card, and taxes and get a free year of service?

in the Article: Essential Phone to Ship In About 30 Days with Stock Android forum

I was thinking about this phone, it is expensive and for the price missing things like water resistance and wireless charging (the later doesn't bother me.), I wouldn't be an early adopter, even with a $50 discount on the 360 camera. Website is nice, but too much self congratulations on an item which hasn't shipped. And extreme claims like the best thing to come to photography since George Eastman. Still it looks nice, and may ...

I wouldn't mind getting the G5 as a back up phone, or an interim replacement if I needed something in a hurry and wish to save up for something better.

Great, it's good to see many of the Chinese phone companies, many making a decent product allowing an option for an app draw.

I do live in Toms River, NJ and work in Pomona, NJ which is just outside of Atlantic City. There are some coverage issues when you get away from the towns surrounding Atlantic City, Galloway Twp. and Egg Harbor Twp. As well as leaving Ocean County, and going west towards Cherry Hill, NJ and Philadelphia. Off topic, but related, if one is thinking of going to T-Mobile, check out MintSim. With their current promotion, and ...

I don't like nor do I get into carrier or phone OS wars, but more and more I am considering porting from AT&T to T-Mobile, while I have a 40gb data plan on AT&T, 30 of those GB's I got on a promotion which raised my bill less then $18.00 per month. I pay about $245 per month, of which about $20 goes for a Next 24 for my wife's iPhone 7. And that is for 5 lines ...

It's not Congress, but the DOT. If they want to make a law against hands free driving, either leave it up to the state's, or go through the process and pass legislation and have it signed by the President. Not by a group of appointees, or civil servants making regulations.

I don't really care for phones that don't have an app drawer. And, no, I don't want to use Nova. No excuse, if there is an option for one fine, if not, wouldn't even consider it.

I doubt VZW will even stock this phone in most of their stores, and probably keep it to online sales, or special order in the store. They are more interested in selling their Droid line, Samsung's and iPhone's..

The greedy corporate executives which first split the company into two companies, and then sold it off to Google, then Lenovo are as much to blame. If one isn't committed to oneself, why should an off shore company be?? Basically, they wanted the name and trademark.

People shave, put on makeup, eat multi course meals, paint their toenails, and that's frigging perfectly fine And you don't see any bills being introduced for that.
