    Apparently so is the OLED TV's from Sony as good if not better than the LG ones if we're talking about picture quality and upscaling

    But yeah LG, Sony and Samsung are my preferred TV brands and well Panasonic too one day if they do step their game up.

    It's 拢800 here with the Sony mx3 headphones. Actually tempted since if I sell the headphones it will be 拢600

    You're right, but it depends on the size you want and your budget.

    LG Nanocell image is flabbergasting, and their sound system is incredible. First time in my life I appreciate the audio coming from a TV without having to plug it to anything, the bass is powerful.

    If you want a TV under 60" and under 1000 they're unbeatable imo

    True

    Didn't you just get a OP7?

    Lmao I bought it like a month after launch and at a good price so I wont take much of a hit if I sell. It will be like 150 price difference between the Sony and the One Plus after I sell the headphones.

    The One Plus is a great phone but the camera is only decent.....it struggles at night shots and when there's different amount of light hitting but usual day time shots are pretty good. I even tried the pixel apk on it but have had mixed results so hopefully this Sony has it on lock. Also the OPO's curved display does get annoying at times.

    I'm hoping Sony lives up to it or I'll just keep the OPO

    Would be dope if it has an active rooting community

    7 pro still a great phone. Full display and 90hz

    Tbh I haven't rooted in years now. Everything I need is pretty much available without root these days

    Some things I miss from AOSP that these OG CyanogenMod nerds didn't include in their Chinese ass software was the power and volume button functions when the screen is off. Being able to turn your flash light on by holding down ur power button with the screen off, changing songs, etc.

    Also swiping across your status bar at the top to change the brightness, very quick and simple, don't know why they abstained that. That was like low-key one of my favorite features ever. You could easily turn your brightness up if you couldn't see your screen from a glare.

    I was kinda disappointed there's no way to have the real iPhone gestures (where you can swipe from the left or right of your screen and it'll take you back or forward a page respectively.) But I'm happy that it's the closest thing to iPhone gestures out of any phone I've seen so far.

    Another must have for me is Viper4Android. And ad blockers.

    Such an advanced audio processor, and when paired with a DAC it makes s*** sound crisp af.

    Until they make V4A for non root (which I heard like years ago that they were doing but IDK what happened to it), root is always gonna be something I look for.

    It's also pretty cool to occasionally check out ROM ports like MIUI or Pixel ports, but honestly OnePlus makes ROM flashing way too much of a pain in the ass. Like, you can't flash ROMs on the go like the old days due to how frequently you have to wipe the data.

    You really are into rooting

    One Plus has gestures when the screen is off and it works really well. You can make it do whatever including flashlight or skip tracks etc

    V4A is the s*** ngl thats what i miss the most from rooting
    Wish they did make a non root version

    Blockada covers adblocking
    Youtube vanced is available for non root so v4a would be the icing on the cake. Hopefully Sony's set up will be adequate enough

    Rooted every phone I ever got since my first phone the Samsung Intercept (shit was WOAT, not even rooting could save it ). I pretty much only buy phones based on their rootability and battery swap ease. It's why I haven't fw Samsung phones since the Galaxy Nexus because they got their s*** on lock now smh.

    Yeah, the gestures are annoying af to me tho. A lot of the time they don't work when I need them to. The power button doubling as the flashlight switch was such a game changer and they really forgot all about it

    OnePlus needs to go back to their roots

    Peep FNG I been using it to replace navbar or any of the manufacturers alternative. You can set custom gestures on the sides like you asked for

    Just need to run ADB command if you're not rooted

    Their flagship names over the years have made no sense and the market got confused.

    Yup the name is horrible but it has a ton of features that potentially might it great.
    The major difference between xiaomis/mid range to flagships are usually the cameras and software. I really liked my OnePlus 7 pro but the camera was only decent compared to the Pixel my bro has. I would have potentially gone for 8 pro but that has too many screen issues. The s20s have serious issues with battery trying to power that refresh screen and the ultras camera isn't great.

    I haven't switched it on yet, just letting it charge but it feels amazing in the hand. It's tall af though. Im so used to 90hz display so wanna see if I hate it or can live with it being a 4k panel.

    Congrats bro use it safely!
    Btw I'm really on the fence with Pixel.
    The camera experience is top3 if not the best.
    But the hardware components are ASS and it doesnt feel like a flagship 1k phone.
    Im just happy that there are so many competitors pushing the game that there are so many availabile smartphones for everyonee.
    The midrage experience closely resembles the flagship,and its amazing to see.
