    funmunke , Mar 30, 2021 :
    I haven't used a Samsung since The S7 Olympics Edition. Is there still an app that disables Samsung crap?

    If I had to rank them, it would be #2 right now. That's still impressive.

    I don't think it works anymore. But luckily ADB commands can still remove all the bloatware you don't like.

    I agree with your thoughts - there are several devices I wouldn't mind trying, but none that makes me feel the unquestionable urge to upgrade just yet. And I am using the OnePlus 7 Pro.

    Perhaps I am just getting old, hah. Thank you for the thread, my good man. :cool:

    You still have to deal with OneUI and Botoxby, or whatever it's named...

    The 7 Pro is my wife's backup phone. It's still a great phone.

    I found this interesting. It's a link of all the pre-installed stuff you can remove through adb on an S21. Granted a fair number I use and would not remove. but is junk of junk on this list.

    That specific rectum, in Europe has a name : Exynos :rolleyes:

    I love a good rant thread, and I agree with what you've written, frankly I also find the upper echelon of flagship crop, underwhelming and expensive
    The only two devices that I find intriguing atm are the Pixel 4a and Samsung FE 5G :cool:
    About the new Oneplus, I kinda like it, but it's kinda pricey, and I know that price won't come down ,discounts are rarely a thing for Oneplus, especially in the European market, even for older devices, and yes, I find that strange, since Oppo has a great discount policy in the same market, you can literally find the Find X2 pro at a 400 € discount, and it's basically the same hardware (with a better camera) as the Oneplus 8 pro so the BOM argument is invalid.
    Also I find the "haselblad" branding misleading, ZoneofTech explained better than I could do, here

    Anyways, Take Care Folks!

    *Obviously we might just be spoiled little brats without knowing it, tech wise, we live in a age of awe and magic, that would have been hard to envision even as close as 10y ago:D

    The smartphone market is in need of a new player or one that wants to grab the reigns that's for certain .
    First comes price , then software and updates followed closely by camera support.
    OnePlus would have needed to launch the OP9 around $649 to have had a shot , but we can not expect a price leader with support from any of these companies.

    The brings it to a point that not even a Pixel is at. It removes a lot of the Google apps and services too.

    Agreed, but I'm not sure where it goes. The likes of Xiaomi are adding way too much sponsored crap and advertising to keep prices low. And you just can't get premium everything with years of software updates for grabs.

    For many people updates aren't important, and a decent camera will do. I don't think average users notice the difference between a budget handset or premium blah..

    Phones are very much a commodity these days, a good price-performance ratio is key.

    But that ain't sexy...

    I wonder if the Essential Phone had been a little cheaper and had a better camera, if they'd still be around.
