Very disappointed in you guys not finding me a Xiaomi or similar brand with NFC and wireless charging!
I remember replying. I haven’t checked to see if NFC works yet (it is supported, but not sure in Australia), and we don’t need wireless charging so not sure if it supports it. Mi 8 is a fucking brilliant camera phone though.
Wont be getting that one then!I don't know of any phone that lacks NFC unless it's cheap trash, it's just about ubiquitous at this point. Wireless charging isn't super common on the Chinese phones. I know the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has it, heck they include a wireless charger in the box with that phone but it's not a phone I'd recommend.
There's growing rumours that the OnePlus 7 will have wireless charging which will launch around May. I'd easily recommend OnePlus over Xiaomi.Wont be getting that one then!
Really was hoping i could find a Xiaomi with what i'm looking for. Might just have to bide my time and put up with this POS mate 10 pro.
I managed to downgrade from a 9 to 8 custom rom without losing everything, you could try using adin to flash the official ROM from Sammobile, and not perform a full wipe.I'm wondering with the Samsung Galaxy S9, can you undo a software update and revert it to the original software version prior to the update? Or can you only do a factory reset and take it back to the software version when you first got the phone?
My sister in law updated her phone and directly after that, she couldn't receive any incoming calls and calls would drop out. A google search shows this is a common issue with the S9 but none of the fixes posted online work so I'm wondering if what I asked above is possible and we'll see if that works.
I haven't found a way to turn it off, but it's annoying me too. Not so much that I have to swipe, but that sometimes I have to swipe a couple of times as it doesn't always pickup.Speaking of GS9 updates, after the most recent one I received, it is making me swipe the answer button to answer phone calls. It's a huge pain in the arse and I fucken hate it.
But alas I can't seem to find the setting to change it?
I can tun on "one tap" through android assistant.....and the swipe goes away and I can answer by simply pressing the answer icon, but....then android assistant is a fucken pain as well because of its insistent thumb tile that's permanently present on the screen.
Turn off android assistant and I'm back to swiping.
Why do updates always **** you in the arse???
I fucking hate the update. That swipe to answer shit is dodgy as, and I'm not really a fan of any of the changes.I haven't found a way to turn it off, but it's annoying me too. Not so much that I have to swipe, but that sometimes I have to swipe a couple of times as it doesn't always pickup.
Edit: I'm actually not a big fan of the update overall. I don't like the design changes all that much.
I'm on the same plan for $39 a month. Ask them for a $10 credit.Got myself onto a nice little 30GB $49 BYOD plan with Telstra so I think I'll sit (unless Telstra want to sling me some more data... Hint, hint bots...) until 5G handsets become a thing...
I sure am, personally I'm using the 6 but I got it for $400 on FB marketplace so at that price it was a super easy choice.
