i hated my s8+ within like a few weeks lol. The lag was real bad. Think the note 8 adding 6gb of ram really changed the game for samsung OS. Haven't really had lag issues since (still wish the animations were smoother though).
the same apps as every other phone i got? I remember there was like 1+ second delay on screen press before any response at times. Was crazy. I think this was back when snapdragon samsung phones were pretty rough though.
That's not true man. The difference between my.s9+ and pixel 4 xl is like day and night. The pixel murders the s9. Idk about the S10 big s9 or earlier if you think they're "lag free" you need to try some other phones.Most samsung lag is avoided by going to another launcher like Nova and switching animations to 0.5x though. Don't use touchwiz/one ui
Definitely looking forward to good trade in values for the s20 line so I can buy the ultra. Hopefully they have some goodies along with preorder this time too.
probably? Battery life is gonna be better though lol.I was pleased that Samsung announced a new phone with a replaceable battery, the XCover Pro. (https://www.cnet.com/news/samsung-brings-back-rugged-galaxy-with-xcover-pro/)
My question is this. Coming from a Galaxy S7, will this phone feel underpowered and with a mediocre display? Or will it be comparable? I'm very interested.
Did Samsung phones use a different fingerprint sensor to the OnePlus phones? Having recently got the 7T I haven't noticed any issues with the fingerprint sensor, it seems quite fast to me and works well. My brother has the 6T with the older version of the sensor but he hasn't complained about it as yet.Soo... best phones of 2019. what y'all feeling? Samsung phones were solid... but man the ultrasonic fp sensor was unusable in the worst scenarios, slow on the best scenario. Heard ppl like the s10e though. I liked my oneplus 7 pro a lot. I also like my $614 pixel 4 xl a lot as well. I've heard iphone 11 family is amazing too. People on the subreddit seem to like their fold, and there does seem to be very few issues so far.
Most companies use an optical one, which basically shines a bright light and takes a screenshot of your finger. Samsung uses an ultrasonic sensor which in theory is more secure, but in practice it's super finicky, and it's incredibly ymmv depending on your screen protector + humidity + how moist or dry your finger is etc.Did Samsung phones use a different fingerprint sensor to the OnePlus phones?

Finally!Whatsapp beta added dark mode today for Android and it's beautiful!!!
Saw this mentioned a few times on the subreddit so you aren't alone.I'm having a lot of freezing issues on my Note 10 since I upgraded it to Android 10. It's a T-Mobile model running the T-Mobile firmware.
What's happening is every time I open a link from a program (like a link in an email), it opens it in the quick view window and the quick view window will lock up. The buttons on the bottom of the screen don't respond, nor does anything in the browser. I can pull the notification shade down, access settings and then my recent menu to close the browser, so it's not hard locking the phone.
This happens with both Chrome and Edge, so I don't think it's a specific browser problem, and it only started since I upgraded to 10.
I've factory reset my phone twice now and the problem still exists. I don't know if it's an Android issue, a T-Mobile issue or a Samsung issue, but it's really annoying.
Has anyone come across a problem like this and have any idea how to fix it?
It can be finicky, only when the placement isn't good enough. What's you get used to it and have the proper placement, it always works.Most companies use an optical one, which basically shines a bright light and takes a screenshot of your finger.

I'm disappointed that the S20 and S20+ will just be 3x Optical lens. Other than improved screen fingerprint scanning and overall battery life, I think this would be be the thing I would be looking for to make an upgrade worthwhile. I wish that it did have 5x optical zoom. As a feature, 120hz is great and all, but an overrated feature to me. I use an iPad Pro and 144 hz monitor everyday and there was never a time where using my S10 felt terrible in comparison. Tech bloggers who suggest that you cannot go back and 90hz+ makes everything else unusable are fucking morons. With that said, it's still going to be an awesome upgrade and I definitely would want w/e next I get to have that for sure.
If the next One Plus just at least caught up to the S10 in camera quality, but offered at 3x optical zoom, I would be tempted.
If all these 5G phones end up of having shit battery life, then there's no more discussion to be had. I won't look towards any of them.
Didnt the OP 7 pro have 3x optical?
Google released a webview update yesterday that didn't show up in my update list (I had to manually look for it).
just a fyi samsung gave out $600 credit for trade in for the note 9 when the note 10 came out. So if you are planning on upgrading this year... best to wait. I'm seeing swappa prices for the note 10 in the 500s (and you gotta pay a selling fee, and shipping).
We'll see how the bendable glass behaves in a month or so when the Fold Z launches.Been enjoying the fold so far. It's... surprisingly creaky when closed though, but this could just be the one I got (amazon renewed means jack shit) has signs of being dropped on the hinge.
You can definitely see the crease and imperfections of the plastic screen depending on the lighting situation.... like the overhead lights at my office.
It's also kinda heavy and wide... so not the most comfortable to use. Guess you can get used to it though... or use it less?
I'm kinda surprised at how robust the software is for gen 1. It pretty much has everything the other one ui phones have, including themes, good lock etc. It is missing edge panels though... which is a bummer.
Anyways returning it because of the defect, but I'm definitely interested in the gen 2 ones this q2 if the rumors are accurate (s20 ultra camera, 8" flexible glass screen, spen).
