the one I have is too small

2018-07-19 13:49:03 UTC

Is sharp S2 good

2018-07-19 13:49:14 UTC

Might get a non chink brand

2018-07-19 13:49:16 UTC

Unless they fold it properly I'd see that as shipping nightmare

2018-07-19 13:50:05 UTC

Your local men's wear should sell straightened suit cases

2018-07-19 13:53:36 UTC

ye you're right

2018-07-19 13:53:41 UTC

probably cheaper that way aswell

2018-07-19 14:08:12 UTC

I wouldn’t buy the umidigi tbh

2018-07-19 14:08:47 UTC

Umi is infamous for rapidly shitting out phones without any future software support

2018-07-19 14:19:08 UTC

just a dumb question

2018-07-19 14:19:15 UTC

why do software updates matter

2018-07-19 14:19:34 UTC

I mean so what if you don't have the latest version of android

2018-07-19 14:19:41 UTC

as long as the apps run on it

2018-07-19 14:19:43 UTC

its fine

2018-07-19 14:20:12 UTC

not for me tbh

2018-07-19 14:20:30 UTC

my shitty a5 2016 got 2 fucking updates

2018-07-19 14:21:17 UTC

came with 5, now has 7

2018-07-19 14:21:49 UTC

But the 2 gb of ram are really noticeable if you come from a phone with 3 or 4

2018-07-19 14:22:33 UTC

hng

2018-07-19 14:23:51 UTC

god fucking damn why is meizu taking so long to release new phones

2018-07-19 14:24:47 UTC

cause they are shutting down

2018-07-19 14:28:40 UTC

nice meme

2018-07-19 14:29:57 UTC

>1440x720p

2018-07-19 14:30:11 UTC

is it really as bad as it sounds

2018-07-19 14:40:58 UTC

how good are the red switches on the kboard on hot sales

2018-07-19 14:41:12 UTC

i assume its note cherry?

2018-07-19 14:43:27 UTC

how is shipping time 3-4 days

2018-07-19 14:43:40 UTC

I went from a phone with 1 gb of ram to one with 4 and it is noticable

2018-07-19 14:43:44 UTC

isn't that Canadian warehouse?

2018-07-19 14:46:46 UTC

nvm its chinese

2018-07-19 14:47:25 UTC

surely they're lying

2018-07-19 14:49:41 UTC

Two shots with Gcam and Stock on Mi A1

2018-07-19 14:50:00 UTC

Exact same time, same lighting

2018-07-19 14:50:18 UTC

how much effort to install gcams?

2018-07-19 14:50:32 UTC

you need to unlock the phone right?

2018-07-19 14:50:39 UTC

I kind of like Stock more here

2018-07-19 14:51:02 UTC

same

2018-07-19 14:51:25 UTC

people say gcams has better lowlight though

2018-07-19 14:53:39 UTC

Gcam has the better colour when compared to IRL

2018-07-19 14:53:54 UTC

its more blueish

2018-07-19 14:54:48 UTC

do you need to unlock bootloader for gcams?

2018-07-19 14:56:19 UTC

Not really

2018-07-19 14:56:29 UTC

The Mi A1 is super easy to unlock tho

2018-07-19 14:57:18 UTC

gcam looks really better

2018-07-19 14:57:18 UTC

wow

2018-07-19 14:58:02 UTC

how long did you have to wait for unlock permissions

2018-07-19 14:58:36 UTC

No time with A1

2018-07-19 14:59:14 UTC

gcam doesnt need unlock i think

2018-07-19 14:59:18 UTC

u can do it with pajeet tricks

2018-07-19 14:59:41 UTC

don't you need to write a whole essay to xiaomi for unlock?

2018-07-19 14:59:44 UTC

or did they change that

2018-07-19 14:59:51 UTC

Nah, A1 doesn't need that

2018-07-19 15:00:07 UTC

forgot a1 was stock

2018-07-19 15:00:09 UTC

You can go from unbox to unlock in 2 mins

2018-07-19 15:00:10 UTC

reeeeeeeeeeee

2018-07-19 15:02:56 UTC

oh nvm it doesn't require giving them a reason based xiaomi

2018-07-19 15:04:12 UTC

yeah u are tarted

2018-07-19 15:30:25 UTC

MI max 3

2018-07-19 15:30:34 UTC

#Shouldvewaited

2018-07-19 15:31:05 UTC

looks like how the redmi 5 should have been

2018-07-19 15:31:37 UTC

isn't it the same besides extra memory and bigger screen?

2018-07-19 15:32:17 UTC

No extra memory

2018-07-19 15:32:20 UTC

Just bigger screen

2018-07-19 15:32:21 UTC

I mean

2018-07-19 15:32:26 UTC

Only a 64gb base model

2018-07-19 15:32:47 UTC

its 100 euro more expensive though

2018-07-19 15:32:52 UTC

idk if worth it

2018-07-19 15:33:03 UTC

Yeah

2018-07-19 15:33:08 UTC

I think I'm better with my note 5

2018-07-19 15:33:41 UTC

besides maybe the camera I don't see a big difference

2018-07-19 15:33:53 UTC

it's the same sensor as in the mi 8

2018-07-19 15:33:59 UTC

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/189466684938125312/469527331082338325/gsmarena_001.jpg

2018-07-19 15:34:10 UTC

those were the """leaks""" for the note 5

2018-07-19 15:34:15 UTC

What is dat

2018-07-19 15:34:18 UTC

I mean

2018-07-19 15:34:22 UTC

Thats the Note 5 Plus

2018-07-19 15:34:23 UTC

No?

2018-07-19 15:34:45 UTC

Oh wait nevermind

2018-07-19 15:34:48 UTC

The chin is too small

2018-07-19 15:34:50 UTC

note 5 plus has significantly larger bezels

2018-07-19 15:35:41 UTC

honestly the thing that makes the bezels on the note 4 bearable is that they're functional buttons on the bottom

2018-07-19 15:36:01 UTC

with the note 5 having those in the screen, it's just a quarter inch or so of dead space

2018-07-19 15:36:45 UTC

@Lesi mi max 2 didn't receive global version

2018-07-19 15:36:59 UTC

and it's not confirmed yet if the max 3 will

2018-07-19 15:37:02 UTC

>No dedicated menu home back buttons
Take my reeees, Xiaomi

2018-07-19 15:37:38 UTC

>Dedicated home menu buttons in the age of the swipe gestures

eehehehehehehheeheheheeeheeheheehhehehehhe

2018-07-19 15:37:59 UTC

there should be either a tiny bottom bezel or dedicated buttons, preferably a tiny bezel

2018-07-19 15:38:05 UTC

especially with oreo's interface

2018-07-19 15:39:18 UTC

>Swiping your finger across context-dependent menus instead of pressing a button you know does the same thing each time

2018-07-19 15:39:23 UTC

What is muscle memory?

2018-07-19 15:53:25 UTC

>swipe gestures

2018-07-19 15:53:36 UTC

god I hate the bezelless meme

2018-07-19 16:04:53 UTC

Stupid design lmao

2018-07-19 16:04:59 UTC

@emre chinks are good at making their own mech switches now

2018-07-19 16:06:56 UTC

Why can’t I find oppo phones anywhere

2018-07-19 16:07:18 UTC

amazon gives me nothing

2018-07-19 16:07:33 UTC

the gearbest app doesn’t even fucking work properly

2018-07-19 16:19:01 UTC

idk why people have problems with gearbest app, it works flawlesly for me for the course of last two years

2018-07-19 16:22:37 UTC

@MrChubbs because it's insecure and can compromise your shit

2018-07-19 16:22:48 UTC

Did you not read the pinned post in <#247481427803897866>

2018-07-19 16:23:12 UTC

but he is claiming that it does not work properly

2018-07-19 16:23:33 UTC

so I'm wondering what does not work properly

2018-07-19 16:23:42 UTC

beside information leaks

2018-07-19 16:44:39 UTC

I remember checkout didn't work for me but I could add things to cart and get a discount

2018-07-19 16:44:50 UTC

that was last year though

2018-07-19 16:45:04 UTC

I've stopped using GOYbest since december

2018-07-19 16:46:19 UTC

also @Tribit why are you lying to this poor child

2018-07-19 16:46:29 UTC

???

2018-07-19 16:46:46 UTC

unknown switches are so bad, I tried motospeed ck666 with some no name brand blues

2018-07-19 16:46:55 UTC

outemu son

2018-07-19 16:46:56 UTC

I'd much rather type on membrane

2018-07-19 16:47:14 UTC

where da box kalih or gateron at

2018-07-19 16:47:20 UTC

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

2018-07-19 16:47:22 UTC

do these chinks have a single excuse

2018-07-19 16:47:30 UTC

I think there was a James Donkey with gaterons

2018-07-19 16:47:34 UTC

they're like pennies in price difference

2018-07-19 16:47:42 UTC

yeah but it has gaymer design

2018-07-19 16:48:48 UTC

I'll stick with my noppoo but I'm still on the lookout for a cheap gateron/kalih box 75 or tkl that isn't autismo garbage

2018-07-19 17:00:24 UTC

are there even any boards with kalih switches? dont want to diy shit

2018-07-19 17:05:19 UTC

diy is ez u puss

2018-07-19 17:06:28 UTC

there is a 60% with kalih box

2018-07-19 17:06:35 UTC

Ok swede here tired of the swede cuck taxes. What is the best parcel forwarding service for Europe?

2018-07-19 17:08:03 UTC

don't have soldering station

2018-07-19 17:12:46 UTC
2018-07-19 17:12:57 UTC

>not soldering

2018-07-19 17:13:01 UTC

are you a fucking woman?

2018-07-19 17:13:10 UTC

just get a hotswap board then

2018-07-19 17:17:04 UTC

yeah fuck you for buying one product that does everything, instead buy a PCB and some switches and some keycaps and wait for them all to come in and hope you somehow don't fuck everything up

2018-07-19 17:17:54 UTC

I can’t filter properly

2018-07-19 17:24:34 UTC

its okay you can ask chinks to build your dream keyboard for bout $100

2018-07-19 17:26:39 UTC

There's no excuse for not buying hotswappable pcbs these days, removing solder is a pain in the ass and once you find something that works you won't change switches often enough to wear out the connector anyway. It's a good way to start a keyboard that allows for easy and non-autistic switch replacement

2018-07-19 17:27:04 UTC

yes there is

2018-07-19 17:27:24 UTC

the excuse is that some people are too lazy to go through that process

2018-07-19 17:27:45 UTC

Holy shit it's just like putting on keycaps

2018-07-19 17:27:50 UTC

That's serious laziness

2018-07-19 17:28:10 UTC

is it? why does discord exist if both irc and mumble exists?

2018-07-19 17:28:20 UTC

because its easier to use than both

2018-07-19 17:28:22 UTC

It's easier since you don't have to pay attention to rows or legends

2018-07-19 17:29:30 UTC

I'm not saying it isn't easy, its just not the *easiest* option

2018-07-19 17:30:56 UTC

It is if you find out you don't like the switches you bought, or if one starts bouncing

2018-07-19 17:32:49 UTC

debatable: if you buy a keyboard locally and don't like the switches you can just return it. again, the easiest solution

2018-07-19 17:33:22 UTC

buy chink keyboard, maybe be able to return it, more realistically sell it locally or for a loss online

2018-07-19 17:34:28 UTC

I'm not saying there aren't people selling bags of switches but its reasonable to think the market is far smaller

2018-07-19 17:34:33 UTC

@Tribit how can I help you?

2018-07-19 17:35:22 UTC

I think magic force makes a hotswap keyboard

2018-07-19 17:35:29 UTC

@porco do you know any good parcel forwarding service?

2018-07-19 17:35:32 UTC

for eu

2018-07-19 17:36:33 UTC

What kind of value are we talking about?

2018-07-19 17:36:39 UTC

If it's >300 Eur I can do this

2018-07-19 17:38:31 UTC

How >300€ ?

2018-07-19 17:41:45 UTC

Is kz zs3 the best?

2018-07-19 17:42:38 UTC

the worst :(

2018-07-19 17:43:30 UTC

the bestest

2018-07-19 17:43:52 UTC

@porco
How >300€ ?

2018-07-19 17:54:18 UTC

that's my personal threshold where it gets worth it to proxy for EU people

2018-07-19 17:54:40 UTC

but they still would have to pay their local VAT

2018-07-19 17:55:03 UTC

so on low amounts, it's too expensive

2018-07-19 17:55:16 UTC

Swiss VAT + EU VAT

2018-07-19 17:55:28 UTC

But on big amounts, it's usually cheaper than EU customs + EU VAT

2018-07-19 17:56:01 UTC

Although Switzerland is also getting cucked lately

2018-07-19 17:56:19 UTC

Local semi-government-owned warehouses are complaining to lose business to China

2018-07-19 17:56:34 UTC

so thing are most likely to change here, too

2018-07-19 17:56:43 UTC

not sure how long I will be able to proxy

2018-07-19 17:59:38 UTC

@Windatica recommend me a soldering iron then 😠

2018-07-19 18:00:40 UTC

ts100 or t12 or yeehaw 936

2018-07-19 18:03:07 UTC

yihua makes a lot of soldering irons, I think it depends on what you want

2018-07-19 18:04:27 UTC

do I need anything else to start soldering besides this and wire?

2018-07-19 18:05:09 UTC

a fan to point solder fumes into your face will help

2018-07-19 18:05:44 UTC

and something to Ctrl+z solder like solder wick or a solder sucker

2018-07-19 18:09:51 UTC

2018-07-19 18:25:42 UTC

I know they have a new model coming out that's even smaller

2018-07-19 18:25:44 UTC

Probaly not much more in stores actually

2018-07-19 18:29:09 UTC

@Kimichiboi what'd you need a soldering iron for

2018-07-19 18:29:15 UTC

also most chink solder is crap buy local

2018-07-19 18:29:26 UTC

you didn't think chinks could fuck up making something that needs lead in it

2018-07-19 18:29:28 UTC

but they do

2018-07-19 18:58:52 UTC

Mum got me a laser pointer for my bday
