Order Nexus 6 or Oneplus Two ??
Thinking often about republic wireless. I jump around prepaid carriers alot and it looks like a great deal, but I don't exactly understand how it works. I'm no idiot I also find it to be better looking, the only thing that caught my attention in the Play is actually the battery size. gifting it to when I upgrade, but I won't upgrade to anything that isn't ready to work with my carrier of choice.
I've been contact free for over a decade. even with contacts I don't see why you wouldn't expect a smartphones android 5.1 to come soon to the us market...definitely is an upgrade. At this time, I'm waiting for my Verizon deal to the expire. Looking to get into a GSM platform in hopes to have better resale value on phones from here onward. This is the upcoming equivalent for outside the US... Looks like the new droid will be sporting the 810 Snapdragon, having a Dual core Cortex A57 @1.8 Ghz that doesnt throtle than a quad cortex a57 that throtles heavily like the Snap 810...
Nexus 6 still fantastic hardware, stock Android, no bloatware, works on all carriers so I can switch to T-Mobile and use overseas Sim cards if I want. buy the phones; we should raise the bar if we pay only for devices like Nexus 6 or OnePlus Two with good specifications, anything above $500 is not acceptable...
I've just checked Nextbuying and found 16 GB 3GB RAM and 64GB 4GB RAM. If Oneplus Two will sell 64 GB version for $499... I don't know why anyone will buy it ? it shipping from China and the DHL shipping cost $19.98
REALLY love my second nexus 5. It's the best phone I've ever used yet. It's my computer, my lifeline, my entertainment hub etc. But give me another gig of ram, another half inch of screen and a bigger battery? Heaven! I'm buying the pure, the day it releases, hands down! My lovely girlfriend will inherit my lovely second gen and as intriguing as the stock silicone option is, I'll probably keep it bamboo.
the smaller screen, it really isn't that much smaller dimensionally. In fact, it is thicker, and despite the plastic frame, heavier. Also, the screen is lower resolution and the SoC is less powerful.
It is definitely a good option for some, but the smartphones is most definitely the flagship device. technically one could call it a "side grade". The performance is roughly similar for every-day tasks GPU is much faster, the battery life and camera on the Chinese smartphones will be better, and the only thing you really lose is Voice which can be replicated with a Wear device.
It will also be pretty much guaranteed to get at least the next two major updates Android N next year, and may see more depending on support (it is their most-sold device, after all, and requires the least effort to update). So, one could argue that those currently using the xiaomi, who don't mind the loss it, would be perfectly happy using the phones
its original size and placement on the device. The bar is an additional design element to keep it and the camera module from looking unbalanced. it's the same reason the dimple on the phones is the same size as the camera module, to give the design visual consistency.
