    I live in Germany.
    That's the funk hole between the Netherlands and Poland.

    Here's my best story.
    Germany is a great place for internet access. You pay a lot, you get very little. If I recall the statistics correctly, we are only 2 places behind North Korea when it comes to connectivity and price-for-service ratio. That would be place 129 in the world internet quality ranking.
    Naturally, in a third world country like Germany, internet access is very limited, even in the capital.

    And my story takes place in Germany's capital, Berlin. Berlin is a city of roughly 4 million people. When it's Christmas time, all of them pour into the stores to buy some stuff for their aunts or affairs.
    If you decide to go out on those occasions, if you are brave enough, not only will you face bad parking situation. It is also very likely that you will not have any internet access at all.

    Back when this story happened, my contract worked like that: 1GB of data per month and if you exceed the limit, you would not be throttled as badly as with other contracts - you'd just get demoted to using only 3G networks.
    Problem: The 3G network is super unreliable and somehow never worked for me.

    So when it was Christmas time, and I decided to go on a shopping trip, the network just wasn't there. Sure, the 3G sign and full bars were shown, but no access whatsoever.
    So I decided to go to a nearby service store, just to ask what one might do about that.

    And then, the most Germany moment of all the Germany moments happened:
    When I told the store worker that my 3G network was dead since forever, he was surprised.
    Usually, people only report issues with the 4G network.

    You could rename Germany to Load Rage and nobody would notice, lol.

    There's something seriously wrong with your phone, have you taken it to a service center yet, if yes what did they say, as a fellow 6T user I'm shocked and haven't faced any such issue yet....??

    In Detroit on Woodward, There's a 4 or 5 block deadzone for TMobile signals apparently. So everyday on my ride home my music, audiobooks, podcasts,and phone calls drop out.

    The only thing that seems to bring everything back like normal is a phone restart. luckily the OP7 is QUICK with reboots.

    Imagine a 120 Fluid AMOLED display... paired with a single core 800mhz processor and a 400Mah battery... damnnnn

    The screen would be so good, but it would be such a waste because of that processor... and once u manage to get something working that battery gonna die within 10 mins

    Nightmare: Getting teased by such an amazing screen... but not being able to use it [e]1f614[/e]☹️[e]1f62d[/e][e]1f62d[/e]

    edit: Lel I went too technical
