    Not really, no. Well, youtube occasionally and it has tracking block by extensions where possible. Not using Maps, have offline satnav software that's updated regularly.

    As above, blocked by extensions. I don't really use a browser on mobile either vOv
    So why do you need a smartphone at all exactly?

    Just got myself Nokia 6.1 32gb since i couldn't find 64s in non-dodgy shops. Excellent phone so far if a bit big for my liking (used iphone 4 for about 3 years) but apparently 12gigs are already taken up by the OS, lmao.

    Not that i'm going to run out of space anytime soon as i only use it for mp3s and photos but there is always the SD slot as well.

    Confirming Xiaomi Mi A1 is a good phone. 145 for the 64GB model is a steal (mine arrived from a ebay trader yesterday)

    Second day.

    Very big indeed - almost impossible to safely handle it with one of my tiny hands. Doesn't fit in my waist pocket with the jack connected which goes in the top so taking it out of the pants pocket is also awkward.
    Fingerprint reader is awkward, unreliable and overall retarded.
    No silent mode switch like on iphone 4.
    Headphones are much quieter - no longer can i listen to musac with headphones around the neck. Maybe there's an app for that.

    Not unless you want terrible sound. Apples always used to have very good audio chips in them compared to the competition so that's probably what you're seeing there. I assume Nokia used some cheapo "will do" thing.

    You're discovering why Nokia left the mobile market back in 2014.

    SnoopSnitch 2.0 released a couple days ago, now has massive new functionality of checking for missing android security patches by apparently comparing function signatures to known values.

    Thank God you can't. I can't stand people that "share" their music with everyone through (bluetooth) speakers. Last class trip I was on (two years ago) my tenth graders had probably on speaker for every two students.

    Neat tbh i wasn't aware that it's possible without rooting.


    Also There's a way to retain MIUI ota capability with unlocked bootloader / root via a xiaomi specific twrp clone - RedWolf recovery.
    No idea if that part also works on Android one.


    *edit*
    nvm, redwolf is MIUI specific.

    But magisk works with OTAs apparently.

    @Overspark
    Because your G6 has RAW / Camera2Api support out of the box.

    On my G6 it's just download APK and go. No faffing about required. Well except enabling installing downloaded APKs I guess. And you need the right one, usually there are several suited for your specific phone model, available on XDA.

    Wouldn't mind that actually, not that I need a new phone this year.
