Results: same price, different beasts – would you buy the LG G6 or OnePlus 5?

OnePlus started its career in the smartphone world back in 2014, with the super-aggressively priced OnePlus One. A flagship-specced phone for $300? Yes, please! The company quickly garnered fandom and started to sneak its way into the limelight. With each year, OnePlus has also been inching towards a more respectable price-tag, too. Of course, that’s the cost of growth — it’s unrealistic to maintain an operation that barely makes a profit on its product. So, now, the OnePlus 5 costs either $480 or $540, depending on which storage / RAM variant you go for.

All the …

Poll: same price, different beasts – would you buy the LG G6 or OnePlus 5?

About a month ago, the OnePlus 5 hit the market and, save for a few unfortunate bumps, it has the smartphone fandom pleased. Well, almost pleased, as OnePlus has managed to slither up in the price tiers and its “flagship killer” no longer costs a measly $300. Nope, the OnePlus 5 will set you back either $480 or $540, depending on which storage / RAM variant you go for.

All the while, one of the major manufacturers — LG — has sliced the price of its latest flagship in less than half a year of its existence. The G6 started off with a $650 – $700 tag, but can now be had for exactly $500 unlocked. …

Results: would you buy a discounted phone if the retailer uses it to serve you regular ads in exchange?

Amazon’s Prime exclusive phones have been a hot topic last week. With the Nokia 6 added to its roster, the discounted phones got a bit more attention than usual and had users asking themselves “Would I go for this deal?”.

Prime phones are usually midrangers, which you can buy at a $30 – $180 discount, depending on the phone, but there’s a catch. If you get one of these devices, you will also have to endure Amazon ads and offers popping up on your lockscreen at all times. That’s right, no more pictures of your dog or your cousin’s toddler — your lockscreen is now Amazon’s personal “your …

Would you buy a discounted phone if the retailer uses it to serve you regular ads in exchange?

Amazon’s Prime exclusive phones have been quite the topic this week. There are a couple of reasons behind this. For one, Nokia 6 has been added to the roster and we all know that this brand evokes quite a lot of feelings in phone fans.

Of course, there is a catch. If you get a bargain on a Prime exclusive phone, you will also have to endure Amazon ads and offers popping up on your lockscreen at all times. That’s right, no more pictures of your dog …

So, given the chance, would you buy the resurrected Samsung Galaxy Note FE?

So much noise for a phone that was considered dead, wouldn’t you say? Yeah, we are talking about the Galaxy Note 7. A handset that tripped on launch not once but twice and Samsung pulled the plug on the entire thing before any more embarrassing situations occurred. However, in recent months, we’ve been hearing that the Note 7 is getting its 3rd stab at being a phone that actually exists. Now called the Note FE (fan edition), it comes with a slightly smaller battery, but every bit as much swag as before.

Now, we’ve asked you this before, when not much was known about the device, and all we …

Results: the next time you buy a smartphone, are you buying the same brand as you have now?

In 2017 there are so many smartphone manufacturers out there that if one were to venture out and try all of their products, it could take them a few months or even a year. Well, through cut-throat competition and heavy marketing, a few have built themselves up as the most popular or most recognizable names to go to, but there’s still plenty of choice. And while, sure, the two main operating systems we have are iOS and Android, the latter’s customizability allows for manufacturers to do crazy modifications to the software and differentiate themselves.

So, it’s easy to stick with a brand if …
