You're right. I was (am?) perfectly happy with my Pixel 2 but I got to play with a brand new OnePlus 6T a few months back and it was glorious in comparison. Maybe it was just that I've had my Pixel for well over a year and it's just... familiar but the fancy new phone felt space aged in comparison, in a way that MrsPaz's Samsung S9 didn't when it was brand new.

The 7 Pro has me twitching. I adore my 5, to the point where the thing most preventing me upgrading is just how well it's held up

Speed-wise, I was happy enough with the Moto G6, but after getting fed up with the inconsistent Wi-Fi performance, I decided to get something better, so yesterday I had a Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro delivered. Just the overall performance of it makes the G6 look painfully slow in comparison. Not that the Mi 8 is perfect - the MUIU OS on there is pretty hateful in places.

Handy that Amazon allow you spread the payments on certain phones though - that certainly swayed me towards the Mi 8

Main thing I'd want an upgraded processor for is that Dolphin runs pretty well on phones with a snapdragon 845 or 855.

Oneplus 7 looks real nice, but I'd want a headphone jack.

I'm keeping an eye out for the Moto Z4 Force.

The Mi 8 comes with a USB-C to headphone adaptor at least, but I'm pretty certain that when I need it, I'll have forgotten where it is.

This will probably be my solution when the time comes to upgrade. It's incredibly rare that I want to charge and listen to music at the same time so that use case isn't a problem, and the adaptor will just remain permanently attached to my earphones so I can't see me losing it either. In all practicality it won't make much difference to me, but I'm still annoyed in principle.

Nah, I'll shell out for wireless, then lose one of them, then just stop using headphones.

I don't want to minimise the loss of the headphone jack, because it still catches me out occasionally even though I haven't had a jack on any of my daily carry phones in two years.

But: I wouldn't give up my wireless headphones (Bose QC35) and go back to wired, and I will probably buckle at some point and get a second pair of more portable ones, possibly the OnePlus Bullets. And on the other side of the coin, I am continually annoyed that the Switch does not support wireless audio.

(Also: wireless charging is my answer to "charge and listen at the same time." I have a wireless charging stand on my desk. My phones get rotated through it during the day. Obv not all headphoneless phones have wireless charging support, however.)

I have the awfully named Aftershokz Trekz Air bone conductor wireless earphones for daily use. Designed for runners, cyclists and other people who need to hear their surroundings, they don’t block the ear canal so I can still hear traffic, dogs, customers and other potential dangers. Obviously the sound quality suffers from having zero isolation, but they’re still really good. Pricey at £130 though.

Then I have some cheapish Jabra Move on-ear jobbies which were £60 and sound surprisingly good for the price. The build quality not amazing though.

I won’t get any expensive over ear wireless cans because I’d be scared of taking them out with me. I’ll stick to wired in the house and I’ve been eyeing up a set of Sennheiser Momentum 2.0s for a while, but they’re not cheap enough to be an impulse buy.

I would never go back to wired earphones on the move. They used to always come unplugged or get tangled or snagged somehow. I won’t miss them. Even the mild inconvenience of having to keep them charged is worth it, imo.

Remember that I don't carry a bag. That profoundly changes the use case.

I carry around a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable to connect my Jabra Move to my Switch, most annoying.

If the New Switch has extra processing grunt and supports wireless headphones I’ll find it hard to resist.

I've never had any luck with USB-C > headphone cables. I think the USB socket on my phone might be broken, though.

Okay, how is the answer to "charge and listen at the same time" not just "charge with a cable and listen with my wireless headphones"?

I'm not sure what question you're answering.

Sure, but not than your big ass cans. And the cans are large enough that I would remember them. Wireless 'phones are not.

This is a thread about phones, do you should probably call them "headphones".

Can't you just tie a length of yarn between the two small earphones and then thread it through your clothing, much like our mums did with mittens when we were younger. Then you'll never forget them.

I imagine some games would work fine like that (mostly thinking of Wii games that mainly used the pointer), but no I'd be using a bluetooth controller.

I also recently bought some of these (£149 :o ) and they're great, but no better than my mate's cheap knock-offs for less than half the price. :S

I did quite a bit of research and most reviews said other than their own Titanium ones most others had terrible sound quality. :shrug:

Looks like support is continuing for existing devices though.

I don't really understand this, since everything is made in China anyway.

A lot of things are physically manufactured in China without being Chinese-owned technologies/companies, which I think accounts for much of the difference.

Have ordered a new phone. It was that or a tablet, but I wanted something I could make phone calls with also and didn't fancy the prices of the tablets that have a sim card slot.

A couple of weeks ago I bought a phone from a mate of mine (Razer phone) that he had dropped in sand which resulted in a tiny portion of the touch screen not working. I paid £37.50 for it and made some new end covers (they are mesh and sacrificial) and it is amazing for the reason I bought it (headphone play for streaming music from my NAS). It really is so great sounding I don't even need my amp. It has a THX DAC dongle with it.. However, that made me want a phone with a larger screen given that I spend all of my time now just on my phone. I CBA sitting at the PC much now unless I'm co op gaming with my buddy.

Ended up getting this, Xiaomi Black Shark.

Image

It's faster than the Razer phone 1, has a better GPU than the Razer phone 2 (so beats it in gaming tests) and is also faster than another phone I was considering (the ROG phone, customer return).

The nice thing was it cost half of what the Razer phone 2 does. I also don't get very excited holding and using my Razer phone. I mean sure, it's fast and the screen is amazing (but irreplaceable) but it feels very light and flimsy and the metal is very thin. It's also anodised black, which chips and marks very easily.

I am hoping the phone comes with this...

Image

Early pre release reviews claimed that it was sold separately. However, every other review I have read or watched says it is included. It's not a deal breaker, but would be fantastic for some emulation fun. I will also still keep my Blackberry as my comms device due to the superb keyboard thing but the rest of the phone is starting to annoy me a little bit. Screen is very small meaning my eyes are having trouble switching from looking at it (the phone) to the TV unless I have the phone about 2ft away from my eyes and it's lagging badly on forums and etc due to the lame CPU it has. I mainly got the BB because I knew I would be without a PC or any other means of comms for a long while (six months all told). So it was awesome for pinging emails around and changing my address etc. It's seen an awful lot of use...

I didn't even know gaming mobiles was a thing!

It isn't, really. They use the same screens, SoCs, RAM, and software as any other phone. They might have slightly uprated cooling, which might make a small difference to thermal throttling, but don't bet on it. They might have fractionally bigger batteries. But other than that they're just normal phones in a garish chassis.

And game developers all target last year's mid range phones, because the way to make money from mobile games is to go for the mainstream audience.

Mmmm. That's an oversimplification.

The one thing I've seen trumpeted for 'gaming phones' is higher refresh rates on screens, which is allegedly why some people are into them despite not really caring about gaming.
