I don’t care much about micro SD, audio jack or high end cameras, but I want high battery life with low temperature and medium to high CPU. Plastic or glass body… same for me. But a solid 12 GB of RAM, at least 256 GB of memory, a good screen… very important. Either way, we can only choose from what we have. Also, I respect other people’s opinions, just the wooden language “no micro sd no purchase” amuses me.

My parents aren’t huge techies or audiophiles, yet they can easily tell the difference when I let them use their headphones on my phone. It’s a complete night and day difference for them.

This so-called “old and obsolete” technology is still MUCH more reliable than modern wireless solutions. I used to be in the wireless audio ship before and never have a single day where I miss my old wireless Bluetooth headphones. I don’t have to worry about recharging it every four to six hours after continuous use and using another charger for that. If anything, I’m buying brand new studio-grade headphones to complement the superb built-in Quad DAC sound of my LG V50. It’s the same story with microSD card support. I never rely on cloud storage all the time because there are still a lot of places with little or no internet connection in the first place. Having the ability to use a microSD card in any remote location has proven to be very useful and super useful. After all, I don’t have to make monthly payments for my personal storage because I can easily get a 512GB microSD card for a one-time price of up to $70. Try doing it with cloud storage.
Oh btw, “…these are actually holes in the phone body that affect water and dust resistance…”? The folks at LG Mobile are laughing in their graves hearing such nonsense.
The iPhone 13 already supports dual eSIM.

It’s been through 3 generations of mainstream phones and still works and I wouldn’t throw it away for the world. (and I can also play card games on it.)))
Anonymous, 5 hours agoThe headphone jack will always be superior to wireless headphones. because it disappears from most phones on the market. The average person clearly doesn’t care about differences in latency or things like that, unlike audiophiles or tech enthusiasts.

DMX, 5 hours agoIt makes me laugh a lot those complaining about having “control over their data” if you… moreYou don’t quite understand how the internet and connections work, do you? Secure connections already prevent this. They can see which web page, but they don’t know exactly what data transactions occurred. They just see that there was traffic, but don’t know what kind of data was there. If you’re using a VPN, everything still goes through your ISP, but they don’t have a clue what content you’re viewing, not content and not even web pages. The problem is data hoarding on the endpoint, such as the Android OS itself which sends god knows what to Google directly from the OS itself, rendering the VPN useless. The data may be encrypted, but it still goes to Google, so it doesn’t matter.
guys, would you please change the standard phrase “no mic sd or jack, no buy” a bit? It’s old and obsolete. :))) Probably now it will be joined by “no sim slot, no buy” but same…be more creative, please. These things will sooner or later disappear entirely from the market because they are actually holes in the body of the phone that affect water and dust resistance whether it is IP rated or not and the evolution of technology does not cannot be stopped. It is what it is and I’d like to see a phone with no holes in its body, even an alternative charging method, without a plug (I’m sure it’s not far off, with induction and stuff like that. )
DMX, 5 hours agoIt makes me laugh a lot those complaining about having “control over their data” if you… more100% correct, but we still have some great options to minimize the amount of data they can play with and inject our own “data”….
no micro sd, no 3.5 socket means no purchase for me, remove and the sim slot i will never have a phone again in this life
Sony and LG are exiting the mobile division this way for Samsung has moved

Darknoor, 6 hours agoWe do not care? You can count the phones supporting eSim on your fingers. We are far from having…PlusThere are about 100 phones/smartwatches that support eSIM.
Just because your country or budget doesn’t allow you to have one doesn’t mean we’re not interested.
