    The s8 is legit pretty cool though after playing with one for a little bit, but I still dislike the curved edges and the shitty photo coloration.

    LG has been great to me tho so yeah I'd get a g6 over it.

    First few weeks on Android since the htc one (m7) with the S8+ and here are a few take aways.

    - Dis fone is gud. Feels nice and hasn't really let me down so far. 6 hours screen time isn't bad especially when running things on max, but I expected more for the larger phone.
    - samoled + dark mode = sex.
    - I'm still anxious about receiving security updates frequently.
    - The play store has aids. My first shock came when my favorite mail app had no android equivalent. Given that I fucking hate gamail, this was a problem. Currently using Alto mail.
    - The play store has aids. Seriously, no filtering, no quality control, local apps I relied on for travel just seem more buggy and crash prone.
    - android feels smoother, although I have to set the animations speed to max through developer mode and via the launcher, there's like a quarter second pause between opening apps you just don't have on the iphone
    - The camera is fast and responsive and a step up from what I had before, but yes, it's over processed as fuck. Not a problem though if you don't pixel peep, but I would like a better camera on this thing.
    - what is the point of the app draw?
    - bought my phone through carphone warehouse (uk) carrier unlocked, zero bloatware. yay (well, apart from bixby, which I blapped)
    - Samsungs launcher isn't terrible. Still ended up using Nova launcher though, spending an embarrassing amount of time merging some of what I liked about iOS with Slauncher.

    Play Store is indeed aids.
    I only browse it through my PC and install it to Phone or Tablet through it.
    The app versions is so bad.

    Google has a new OS knocking around and apparently it's not just an experiment.

    I got my very first smartphone (through work)
    It's a huawei p9 lite with dual sim.

    I don't want to give google _all_ of my data, but I can't see it's probably not possible to use a android comfy without giving in some.
    Any tips for a first time user in that regard?

    Until now I have not connected my google account to the phone. (I can use the store etc.)

    Good luck with that, Google even parses the phone numbers you type.

    Relax your anus and enjoy privacy rape via giant dildo with a "google" label?
    (your other option is having your digital anus penetrated by apple, a tad more gently)

    It's there anyway of getting things to auto scroll to home when you tap the top of the screen like on IOS?

    Most breakable smartphonescreen of all time.

    German Stiftung Warentest came to the same conclusion after 80cm drop tests. Better be using cases on them S8s m8s

    If the best gets 90, what would it take to get 100?

    Not sure, but being a full frame camera helps.

    different scores for mobile and regular cameras though, no?

    But looking at their mobile reviews i'm a bit iffy, some photos look obviously worse yet they're rated almost the same, and i'm not buying it.
