I has a smart phone
« on: April 09, 2016, 07:08:46 PM »
So, on the 1st of April, I surrendered my dumb phone and got a Smart Phone. I got the LG G3, and I LOVE IT.

Here's my home screen: http://i.imgur.com/WIZQhf1.jpg

... yes, some of you may recognize that girl as Izuna, the Unemployed Ninja and my... recent obsession. >.>

It's been a very helpful phone (because of an app called Uber) to help me get to work on time in case I miss my bus. And... it's just fun to play with! :)

What's a phone with a good loud speaker.
Also, what plan could I get if I wanted to make a call for 1 minute per year?

I don't plan on playing games, don't need no apps, and I don't want any minute to expire!
I haven't bothered to get a phone, because I don't really need to call anyone, however, there might be a time where I need to call someone (like a cab, or plumber).
Any ideas?

Aegis:
The LG G3's not a bad phone. One of the folks at work has one.

I remember when I made the switch from a dumb phone to a smart phone a couple years ago. I was glad and I never looked back. :)

My smart phone has some good uses too. I use it to track WiFi signals when I see my WiFi connection dropping out so I know what I need to adjust on my router for combating interference and it's been useful at work too.

KOH:
It sounds like a basic flip phone is all you need. You may still be able to get em' where they a set number of minutes pre-loaded but I don't know if there are any where the minutes don't expire. As for a good loud speaker, my experience is that the smart phones generally have the better speakers because it's also used for the apps.

I have no experience with LG phones. I've been on Iphone(s) for the last 4 or 5 years, before that Sony. But welcome to the smart age  :p

Thanks, guys.

I have a lot of experience with LG phones, and now, I've had three of them (two of which were dumb phones).

I do have a flip phone, haven't used it in years.
However you have to talk loud in that phone, and if there's any BG sound, you can't hear anything!

I have that phone. O.o

It's also got a custom ROM.

Some Cyanogen build 12.1 blag blah blah. It's basically the customized version of Android Lollipop.

One of the people at work used to run that on an older Droid phone and would triple boot with Ubuntu and regular Android. He's obviously one of those that's a big fan of rooting the phones to run what he wants. I don't know what he's running now, but it's probably a custom build of Marshmallow.

I've heard of custom builds of like Lollipop and stuff, so I'm not surprised there are some of Marshmallow. However, I'm on the cautious side, so I doubt I'll actually use a custom build. :P

Cyanogen started to release nightly builds of Marshmellow in February. They haven't pushed it for the G3 yet.

I'm on a Note 4 now, about to upgrade later this week when I go back to my hometown to pick up some things I missed, to a Galaxy S7 Edge. I had a Galaxy S3 before the current phone. Had Cyanogenmod on it, but a bug made it where people couldn't hear me, so I returned to stock, and haven't bothered with the Note 4. I'm so gonna miss the S Pen when I change phones :/
Never say never or always. In most cases, there is an exception to anything you can think of that you might use either word in. "Most likely" and "highly improbable" in a lot of those cases would ring true, but not never/always.

Eh, I never found the pens to be all that useful for me but then I don't need a lot precision for that I do with my phone either.
