HELP me choose a phone thread
« on: November 05, 2014, 04:37:02 PM »
guys,

i cant find any thread regarding this.

anyway, i know that most of us is planning to get a new phone this xmas so i created this thread.

anyway, help me decide which phone to get. i have these phones in mind:

zenfone 5  @ 7k
specs: 5inch HD screen, intel atom processor, 16gb internal memory, 2gb ram
pros: future lollipop update, bang-for-the-buck phone!
cons: battery life, low volume ringtone

xperia c3 @ 12.5k
specs: 5.5inch HD screen, 8gb internal, 1gb ram
pros: 5mp camera with flash
cons: no idea yet

moto g 2 (2014) @ 9.5k
specs: 5inch HD screen, 8gb internal memory, 1gb ram
pros: sure lollipop update, pure android experience with no bloatware, with microSD slot (unlike it's 1st gen)
cons: subpar camera

htc desire 820 @ 18k
specs: 5.5inch HD screen, 16gb internal memory, 2gb ram
pros: 8mp front cam, i love the design! specially the blue accent on the white version!
cons: no idea yet

by far, when it comes to design, id go for desire 820, hands down but the one thing that keeps me from getting this is the price.

money is king! so a phone with lesser price that can do the same thing as other phone, id be more inclined of getting it!

btw, im a casual gamer, more of listening to music. also, budget wise 7k-12k. dont even know why i listed the htc.. probably because somehow, i want that phone! if persuaded, i can find a way of getting it.

hey thanks! i never looked into that model! i guess i can add that to my list! also, google cardboard would be awesome pros for that model! thanks! :wave:

EDIT: 16gb is not enough for me.. an upgrade to 32gb will cost additional of 2500 for that phone. i never understand why NEXUS dont have microSD slot..  :-o

Because Google wants us to use the cloud services, he he he. More cloud services, more ads.

On your first post, I'd get the Moto G 2 (2014).

I'm going for the Moto G with this list. Motorola is pretty much the king of affordable Androids.
Sony Xperia C3, wag na lang talaga. Sony makes good high end phones though, and the C3 isn't one of them.

This was last year.. i already got the zenfone 5 because of it's 2gb ram vs 1gb of moto g 2nd gen. Still using it btw. What i hate is that it doesnt have gyro, so no google cardboard to explore.

Anyway, feel free to post if you need help in choosing a phone.

problema sa Nexus releases ng google ay they always keep everything about the phone as stock as prossible...kasama na yung sounds ahaha.

ang corny kasi, walang sound enhancement na ina apply kapag nexus. unlike sa mga feature phones ng mga manufacturers like sony, lg, samsung, etc - sony with its sony walkman enhancement, lg with Dolby at iba pa. ang sarap gamitin at allowed kang lumagpas beyond the volume threshold kaya pwedeng malakas. sa stock android rom wala, limited ka.

parang wala akong naririnig na difference sa sound enhancements na yan  <_< pero kung sa volume lang, ganun ba kahina yung stock ROM?   :roll:

base sa nakita ko yung 100% volume ng stock android rom ay 50% lang ng 3rd party enhanced. ive first seen it when i owned a dolby enhanced LG L7.

by default, pag nag play ka ng music o video clip, nasa 50% sya. pag nilagpas mo yung volume slider lalabas yung warning "...hearing damages may occur" which means youre getting past the thresholds android has set on the volume.

ngayon yung, asus phablet na gamit ko may magaganda ding enhancements/presets - movie, music, game modes, etc.

i can vouch for the 'weak' volume nung mga nexus handsets although i flash my devices on the first day after unboxing :)
laging may faux sound kernel fix yung mga custom roms :)
kadalasan mas maganda sa stock ng other OEMs.

ang problema ko lang eh hindi naman talaga maganda yung built-in speaker nung device in the first place so di mo talaga mabebeat yung tunog na pinoprovide ng other devices with stereo speakers such as LG G4 or HTC ONE

pagdating naman sa headphones, nasa headphones naman din yung difference.
basta hindi 100 pesos cans yung ginamit mo ayos naman
