I have a Nextbit Robin. It might be what you're looking for.

First of all, the price: you can grab one on Amazon for $150 right now, and I can't find a single phone that has nearly as much power for such a great price. It's probably the best $150 phone you'll ever touch. Significantly better price than the Oneplus 3T, or anything else in this threat. An 808, 3GB of ram, 150 grams, very fast charging, and it has USB-C, which sure is nice.

Stock: It's pretty close to stock Android. Nextbit has their own (not very good) launcher, but you can just use the Google Now Launcher or the Pixel Launcher if you prefer. They're also pretty good at updates; currently on Nougat. The only major differences are the icons on the navigation bar (they're a bit rounder and childish-looking) and the color of the notifications shade (it's much brighter and whiteish).

Appearance: Okay, I know people sometimes trash-talk it, but I can't get through a full day without people asking me about this phone. It's so hecking pretty. I got the mint one and oooooh I feel so sad putting this thing in a case because it's so pretty! It looks totally different from any phone you've ever seen.

ROMs: This is Nextbit's best feature. Fuck around with ROMs as much as you want on this thing, and they'll honor the warranty no matter what's installed on it. I'm running Lineage OS (the successor to Cyanogenmod), which is really really close to stock Android. Lineage is smooth as hell on this thing. And because of Nextbit's warranty rules, the ROM community for this device is pretty big, and it'll be supported for a while.

Assorted good things:

  • screen is pretty good. 424ppi, nice resolution, great brightness. Not the best display in a phone ever, but probably the best display you'll find in a $150 phone.
  • the speakers are incredible. Normally I wouldn't even mention this but these are seriously the loudest and most powerful speakers I've ever heard. Front-facing and super-loud. They aren't the best audio quality, but when I'm hanging out with friends and someone wants to show us all a funny YouTube video, they always want to use my phone to show it, because everyone will be able to hear it.
  • feels good in hand; squarish sides and soft plastic make it hard to drop.
  • there's a fingerprint sensor in the home button, which is super cool. Press the home button and it's immediately unlocked. I know that's in a lot of phones now, but it's not in a lot of $150 phones.

    It's a nice phone, but I've still got a lot to criticize about it. Here's the bad:

  • No USB-OTG (if you don't know what that is, don't worry about it, but I really miss it from previous phones),
  • no microSD card slot,
  • the cameras are... well, they're good considering the price, but they're not great.
  • the charging cable that came with mine was complete shit and takes nearly nine hours to charge it up. You'll need to get your own USB-C cable to use fast charging. A $10 USB-C cable on Amazon charges it all the way up in about two hours.
  • some people like the appearance, but some folks think it's horrible,
  • it's a little over a year old now.
  • the gaming company Razer bought Nextbit a little while ago. They've said they'll keep honoring warranties and their rules, but this might mean that they won't be updating it anymore. I dunno. I'm not sure I would've bought one after hearing about the Razer acquisition.
  • not available on Verizon, or any CDMA network.
  • didn't come with a wall plug. Everybody owns a wall outlet USB plug, but it would've been nice to get one with it.
  • the battery is... good? That's about it. Not great, but it can get me through a light day of work without a problem. A bigger battery would've been nice. A removable battery would've been amazing.

    Sorry for kinda rambling! Hopefully this might help a few people make a decision about it!

    tl;dr: Nextbit Robin is a solid and very stock phone that can be easily ROMd into even stockier appearance. Great price, and the flaws are surprisingly minimal for a $150 phone.

I just use my retired Galaxy Note 2 with a lightweight lollipop ROM (liquid smooth) and this

~ mount Only $10 and free one day shipping if you are a prime member. It won’t open any wider than a note 2 but it holds securely to both the phone and the dashboard even in this 0 degree weather outside right now. Wish I could leave my phone out in the cold too. I hate North Idaho.

~ Dashcam - I use Dailyroads Voyager It uses cyclic recording so it can keep overwriting and not using up too much space. It can run in the background while I use waze, music, OK Google, etc. You can also set it to save the video when it senses x amount of G forces. Or you can tap the screen at any time to save the video… It has tons of features and the shocking part is it’s free! Since work provides me with unlimited data tethering on my phone I also utilize it’s cloud backup feature.

~ OBD II - For car diagnostics reading I use BAFX OBD2 I was literally shocked at how easy this was to plug in and pair to my phone! For close to $25 I had tons of information about how my car is “feeling” right in front of me. I’ve only tested a few but I stuck with Dash Some of the things it tells me are engine temperature, engine load, speed, MPG, coolant temperature, RPM, air/fuel ratio… anyway, my favorite part of the app is how it keeps track of my trips.. locations, statistics, where I last parked. Love it.

Things I’m still working on are getting an inverter in my trunk to power a small/cheap router and raspberry pi plus small ssd so that in the case of theft my dashcam app could save to the ssd in my trunk to catch the filthy thief. Looks like there is enough room behind the plastic cover where they keep the tire changing tools to keep this equipment hidden from sight. If anyone has better ideas please let me know. Maybe someday I will impress a nice guy ………

u/larsgj · 2 pointsr/Android

I haven't got the GSIII, but I guess that what works for my Gnex must be the same :)

I use a "Logitech tablet keyboard for Android" and a Logitech v470 laser travel mouse.

Both work flawlessly and has good battery life. The keys on the keyboard are really great - like a good notebook.

u/Neralo · 10 pointsr/Android

So I actually do use a tablet for school that I take notes on and actually have written a few of my reports on as well. Honestly, any tablet would be fine (I'm using a Sony Tablet S. not the Xperia Tablet S, just the Tablet S). What matters is the apps and accessories you use with it.


I study business, so I don't really need to do a lot of writing. Instead, i type most of my notes out on Evernote. When I do need to write stuff, then I'll use Lecture Notes, though there is a free alternative, but I can't remember its name right now.


Unless you choose a tablet that comes with a keyboard (Like some of Asus's offerings, you'll want a portable keyboard. There are some case/keyboard hybrids for certain devices like the one for the Nexus 7 I linked. If not, I highly recommend (and use myself) the Logitech Tablet Keyboard for Android. As for stylus, I use the Adonit Jot Pro cos it helps me write in my cursive scrawl better than most other stylii. Of course if the tablet comes with a stylus, use that.

You mentioned getting a Note 8. I personally feel that might be a little small, and I prefer a larger tablet, maybe 9.5" to 10", just cause its closer to paper size, so it'll be easier to write on. So i'd suggest a Nexus 10, or possibly a Sony Xperia Z, and also the Galaxy Note 10.1.

u/xlaxplaya · 1 pointr/Android

I just bought some Anker Soundbuds Slims.

They're fantastic, I'm VERY impressed with both the sound quality and connection strength (other Bluetooth headphones I've had are unreliable as hell).

As for removing/replacing apps, I think Moto does a good job of not putting bloatware on their phones. So most of the included apps are stock Android apps, which are pretty smooth and reliable. But to be fair, it's been a few years since I've owned a Moto (and they're owned by Lenovo now).

u/gcalpo · 1 pointr/Android

Yes. I especially enjoy listening over the car speakers via the bluetooth link. It's easy to set up if you have the right hardware.

  • Flexsmart X2 for Bluetooth-to-FM in our older car.

  • FIPO iPod to Bluetooth adapter Not really $95 as indicated in the link. More like $10-20. Great for hooking up to a car that supports the iPod Dock Connector.

    I also use the Tasker App to auto-launch Google Music as soon as it detects the bluetooth link-up.
u/dextersgenius · 4 pointsr/Android

At the moment it's $159 on Amazon, but they have regular deals too, it was $145 just before Christmas.

> Would you recommend anything else with a better battery than the Robin?

If battery life is more important then the Moto G4 is a better choice, but if you're after performance and developer-friendlyness then the Robin is better.

u/WuddaWaste · 2 pointsr/Android

I had an external Bluetooth adapter that I REALLY liked. It worked better than either of the BT car stereos I have (Pioneer and Clarion) and cost a fraction of what they did. It plugs into the aux port and to USB for power. I had it two years ago and really loved it. It has buttons just like the cord you showed. There might be something better on the market these days, but I can certainly vouch for the clarity and ease of use of this little bugger. In fact, writing this makes me miss it right now.

u/thevdude · 1 pointr/Android

I use a logitech K400 available here

It's got a cute little USB dongle, but it's amazing. Should work OOB with anything that supports USB keyboards, and has a touchpad RIGHT THERE. There is a left click button on the top left corner which I originally thought would get no use. It's pretty much how I use it now.

u/Vettro88 · 2 pointsr/Android

Doesn't solve the recharging problem but these are pretty darn cheap -

Anker Soundbuds Slim

and if you want full wireless these are less than $30 -

SoundPeats - they have a couple options.

I have both and have been pretty happy

Edit: link formatting

u/cdegallo · 51 pointsr/Android

Anyone looking to follow this, choose your Bluetooth adaptor carefully. I've gone through about 4 before I found one that actually had good audio quality. This is the one I settled on and it's been great, supports aptx and sound quality is great:

u/frankle · 2 pointsr/Android

I have one coming on Tuesday, and in anticipation, I ordered these:

u/etari · 1 pointr/Android

Kinivo BTC450 Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit for Cars with Aux Input Jack (3.5 mm) - Supports AptX

Mine doesn't so i got one of these and I use it every day. I love it. It auto connects as soon as I turn my car on, if I have Bluetooth enabled on my phone (which i usually do.) Many cars build before cars came with bluetooth have audio input jacks to go into the stereo and you can put it on AUX mode to use it. I used to use a 3.5 mm male to male cable to plug my phone in, but this is way easier, it never goes dead because it plugs into the cars power adapter (cig-lighter). Basically it works the same as having Bluetooth built in when you have an older car with out Bluetooth built in. :)

u/DARIF · 14 pointsr/Android

Ok, but you should know that a third party has listed the Robin on Amazon UK for £639. You probably can't do anything about it but an official listing might be best.

u/ihaveagalaxyproblem · 1 pointr/Android

I got this one off Amazon. Obviously I havn't had a chance to put the Nexus in it, but it looks like a solid case. Youtube has a lot of good Galaxy Nexus case reviews too.

Edit: Found a YouTube review on it. There's also a clear version.

u/DrDerpberg · 1 pointr/Android

That's exactly the kind of thing I'd be willing to use, actually. Thanks!

Something like this and a USB/microSD would be great for when I'm not on the move and want to watch stuff.

EDIT: says on Google Play that it's aimed only at the GNex, is it confirmed to work on the Nexus 7?

u/404redditornotfound · 5 pointsr/Android

maybe i'm a bit of a minimalist, or i just haven't as many keys as everybody else, but i would never put such a hunk of power pack on my keyring.

if i'd need a small charger for on the go, i'd go with something like that:

twice the capacity, half the price and it also won't damage the phones usb port.

maybe not quite as compact as motorolas offering, but a tremendously better value. as are the big battery packs you guys already mentioned,i have one of those too, but i wouldn't really want to lug it around on a daily basis.

u/InvalidCastX · 2 pointsr/Android

Wow I came here to ask about the same thing. I'm not really a fan of the Samsungs UI I've seen in previous models and generally prefer stock Android but with the Pixel 2 not having the 3.5mm jack I'm looking at the S8 or Pixel 1.

Amazon currently has the unlocked S8 for $575 which is actually what prompted me to come here.

Seems like a good deal but I can't decide if it's worth putting up with Samsung's UI...

I'm also not considering a Motorola because Lenovo...

u/Varian · 1 pointr/Android

Interesting -- just curious if you've seen/heard of this beautiful device?

You basically buy it, hook it up to your LAN, configure it to use GV, and voila -- free VOIP without an asterisk/pbx box.

u/bicyclemom · 3 pointsr/Android
  • I like the Moto Power Pack Micro. Handy to have a keychain battery pack, which can also act as a phone finder and trusted device.

  • Also have to give props to the Hula case that my phone came with. Makes it nice and grippy.

  • The Kinivo BTC 450 car bluetooth adapter is great if you have an old car that lacks built-in bluetooth.
u/char0n · 1 pointr/Android

Just as an alternative product in the same vein I can recommend this: . I too had problems with FM transmitters in the past not being powerful enough and getting stepped on (I live between Baltimore-WashDC area and frequently drive through both) but have never had even the slightest problem with static or step-over with this one. It's also an easier price pill to swallow. The only problem I've ever had with it is the manual tuner dial can be a little flaky (doesn't register 1 out of every 5 notch-turns on average) but it's otherwise very solidly built with clear and powerful transmission, and has been a godsend in my older car that was built in that period before aux ports were standard but well after tape-decks.

u/brmo · 7 pointsr/Android

I am doing the same thing in my 2010 Ford Escape. I ordered a double din dash kit off amazon, made the hole a tad bit bigger and i already fiberglassed the tray that i will use to slide it in and out of.

My plan is just like yours, torque, nav, music, etc. I already have a Turtle Beach USB Audio sound card, for usb OTG, where a powered USB hub will be used for the sound card and the 64gb usb stick. (Works great btw.).

The only issue I have right now is power, while its not important, especially when using a powered USB hub, I still feel comfortable with it charging while its in my car. So the project is on standby until the pogo pinout gets figured out (should know as soon as the official dock launches), and then go from there.

So far here is my parts list:


USB Audio:

Bluetooth OBD2:

u/Jaytho · 8 pointsr/Android

Also, it's pretty cheap at the moment. (US link) The mint colour really isn't for me, and I'm happy with my own phone, but for us EU folk, here it is again. (.de Link) Pretty cheap as well!

u/Baconrules21 · 2 pointsr/Android

That's what I have and it's very very good. I really like it. I bought the same case for my S3 as well just because the color is so nice from the same company and so did my uncle.

It's a nice case.

u/alecboom · 4 pointsr/Android

This solution is not entirely new. I've had one of these mounts for a while. This is the one I have.

I do like the price point of this crowdfunded bracket though. If you back the project with $20 you get a bracket. I think that's a fair price.

Btw there's a good chance of this submission to get downvoted because it really doesn't have anything to do with android.

u/weldawadyathink · -1 pointsr/Android

Suit yourself. It just seems like a petty reason to pass up on a (probably) awesome phone that you were going to otherwise buy. I personally am in the same situation as you. I think I will pass on the pixel 2, but because my current pixel is awesome and I think I will use it longer. Not because of a headphones jack not being there.

I just found this:

Yeah, you have to plug in 3 things when you bike, not just 2. I used to agree with you about dongles, but now that I have a few USB c devices, I want USB c everywhere. If that means I have to mess around with some dongles during the transition, so be it.

u/G8351427 · 3 pointsr/Android

Do this, I did and it was a good idea.

Port your number to GV or get a new one.

Buy this: Obihai OBi100

And set it up to use your GVoice account. You can continue to use your phones as you are accustomed to, and GVoice will serve as your Voicemail/Answering machine. You can get the messages on your smartphone, Gvoice website, or call for them from the phone.

The Obihai is supposed to have a really high REN rating (5) so you could conceivably hook it directly to your house wiring and run all your phones with it.

I bought one of these a few months ago and then dug up my old cordless phone and now it's like I am living in the 90s again. Awesome.

u/H2iK · 3 pointsr/Android

I use this one with my Nexus One and it fits my needs just fine.
A few things about it though:
The bass leaves much to be desired (I assume this is universal with FM transmitters).
Very nice and easy bluetooth pairing.
After pairing I just turn on my car and it automatically connects.
It has a usb port that can be used for charging a phone (I haven't had the need to try it yet).

I would go with number two if it's anything like mine.
I kinda regret not seeing it when I was in the market for one.
I would probably have bought it.

u/hnocturna · 2 pointsr/Android

My gf has the Z1 Compact and the magnetic charger thing, while proprietary, does have a lot of imitators out there that work fine. She bought an adapter (no dock, just the magnetic charger part) for like $15 and it works really well. It has a strong magnet so it doesn't fall off easily, yet if you want to disconnect it, it's not trouble either.

Link for the charger I was talking about.

u/ivtecdoyou · 12 pointsr/Android

I bought a bluetooth adapter that plugs into my car's aux port, and it works excellently. It has a next and previous song button and play/pause button so that I never have to pull my phone up to change anything. I love it and don't see myself ever going back to using an aux cable, Can Be Found Here

u/swizzcheez · 1 pointr/Android

I use this:

It works fine but can't charge my Droid X. It would charge older, lower-power, Android/iPhone devices fine I'm sure. However, the nice part is that it still can take a cassette adapter and is handy not to need to plug the phone into anything for short trips. For long trips, I plug into a different charger (I have a power splitter).

u/ThatOnePerson · 2 pointsr/Android

Best part of a bluetooth keyboard for me that is I'll keep it in my backpack. It's thinner and lighter than a book.

Another option for if you have a more table setup is get a usb OTG cable like and connect a full keyboard.

Asus also makes their Transformer tablet lines like where you can buy a keyboard dock that the tablet will sit on. It has it's own battery to charge the tablet and USB ports. If you're not typing that much though I'd prefer the Nexus 7 with a keyboard in a backpack.

u/ArkAngel06 · 1 pointr/Android

I recommend one of these. They work great and let you control the music tracks, podcasts, audiobooks from the controller.

And you might need of these if you get a little bit of feedback like me.

u/Penguin_gamer · 1 pointr/Android

I bought this item off of amazon a while ago, and I am very happy with it:
The quality is extremely nice, and it works through bluetooth, so you don't need wires (there is an audio in if you want to attach any other device too). Also, it has a open usb port and cables to plug in your phone, ipod, etc. In addition, it has hands free calling (I don't bother with it, but it works). It is also the clearest fm transmitter I have ever used. Surprising, because I have never heard of the maker before

u/yousefk · 1 pointr/Android

Nice to see that you're reviewing adapters, but you don't really need to. I just bought 4 of these after having already bought and received 2. They're really cheap (68 cents free shipping) and they work just as well as any other adapter.

u/chriskmee · 1 pointr/Android

Anker makes some really nice USB battery packs. I have one of these in my pocket. Its nice and small, yet still gives my phone a nice amount of power when needed. If thats too big for you, they make an even smaller one. They also have a slim model, which has similar dimensions to an average smartphone.

I have one of their bigger batteries for when I take trips. They have many options depending on how much power you want and how much you are willing to spend.

u/pablo_the_bear · 1 pointr/Android

This doesn't exactly answer your question, but I plan on getting this as soon as I upgrade to ICS on my Galaxy Note.

I won't be using it for taking notes, rather I will use it for typing graduate school assignments while on the bus/subway/train here in Korea. Yes, I think it is slightly ridiculous, but compared to a) writing things out on paper and typing them out later or b) trying to type something more than two sentences long on a touchscreen I think it is the smartest way to go.

u/ggKevin · 7 pointsr/Android


$36.97 I own these, and they are pretty great.



It really isn't that expensive unless you only look at Sennheiser, AirPods, and Beats.

u/VQopponaut35 · 1 pointr/Android

Before you give up, I’d try these. They’re sweat resistant, have a great mechanism for staying in your ears (that doesn’t interfere with a helmet) and have a 7 hour battery. I bought pairs for my fiancé and mother after my success with an even cheaper pair (these are currently listed at $20 in the US).

u/SkepticalMartian · 6 pointsr/Android

Set up a low cost PC (you don't need very much power to play video) with HDMI out and a wireless keyboard (the logitech k400r is fantastic, the batteries literally last for a year). The Plex Home Theater client blows everything else out of the water if it's TV in your living room that you're after. It's way better than a console.

Also worth noting - you can use the plex client on your phone/tablet to select a video to start playback on the PHT client connected to your TV, or any other plex client attached to that server.

u/amoore2600 · 1 pointr/Android

Google voice +Gtalk + Obi100 = free land line

I have it and it works great!

u/Marshmelloz · 1 pointr/Android

Trust me, for all the trouble it takes to build one you'd be better off picking up one of these from amazon for a couple bucks & free shipping. It works with my GS3, even on a custom ROM.

u/Mitch_from_Medford · 1 pointr/Android

They are very comparable. (In the U.S.) The S8 costs $500 on Amazon. I just bought the LGV30 new from for $480. You can get both phones cheaper than that but I wasn't willing to buy through Ebay. These phones have similar specs and price, it comes down to preference and I like LG overall better than Samsung.

u/QandAndroid · 1 pointr/Android

If you don't mind the extra bulk, maybe something like this could help improve that

u/Alimoose · 7 pointsr/Android

Highly recommend this bluetooth car kit by Kinivo. It plugs into your AUX jack and gives your car bluetooth capabilities. Bought it for one of my cars and it works great.

u/trueblu · 1 pointr/Android

I use this FM transmitter. I know its a bit steep but I've gone through several FM transmitters and this is the best I've used to date.

u/wrayworks · 1 pointr/Android

I'm using this one from Amazon with nice results. I only have the free "Torque Lite" but I am very impressed with it.

Links for the lazy:

Torque Lite - Free

Torque Pro - Paid

u/icefreez · 2 pointsr/Android

I bought the Sedio 3800 mAh battery with this case. It gives me about 18-20 hours of pretty normal usage with 3 hours screen on time. I never run into an issue of not having enough power at the end of the day anymore.

People also really seem to like the ZeroLemon 5900 mAh extended battery.

u/Reigningchamp4eva · 1 pointr/Android

The adapter is 0 dollars, its included free. Otherwise for extra adapters it's 9 bucks. If you bought several recent android phones without a headphone jack it looks like it's about 5-6 bucks for iffy quality on amazon:

u/shoeman22 · 1 pointr/Android

Have you considered porting your number to Google Voice and then just forwarding to whatever random number you get from T-mobile?

That's what I did (left Sprint for T-mobile on straight talk). I like it because it means YOU always have control of your number and you're not at the mercy of the cell provider.

And of course you get to use Google Voice which is awesome. Text from your desktop, read / listen to your messages, block spam calls / texts, and my new favorite feature I just found: present a "this number is no longer in service" message to folks you don't want to hear from again!

Plus, if you pick up an obi100 and have an old cordless phone lying around, you get a free home phone w/ unlimited minutes (through 2012 at least) and it uses your same google voice number so you can pick up calls on either your cell or your home phone.

Seriously awesome stuff! And on the cancellation, it "just worked" for Sprint (account showed no service right after port completed which took about a day). You WILL get charged an ETF if you are in contract though, so be aware of that.

You should get something like this. Uses your car's AUX to provide Bluetooth connection. I was a bit skeptical but the quality is fantastic.

u/bigfkncee · 1 pointr/Android

I had a similar problem, my car stereo has no Bluetooth,tape deck or AUX input. I ended up getting this fm transmitter from Amazon. It uses bluetoooth to connect to the phone and the fm transmitter to broadcast to the radio. I know its more than you are looking for but it has definitely worked out good for me.

u/marceriksen · 0 pointsr/Android

Depends on your microSD card reading speed. You'll want to look at the high-range ones to read large 1080p / 3D movies. Here's an example of a class 10 straight from Amazon for reference. Otherwise some of the lower end microSD cards, while they can hold a lot, are not going to read a 1080p file fast enough to make it run clearly or well. Here's an example of a class 4 which will not run those files well.

u/kinda_fellin · 1 pointr/Android

I do the same thing. Torque is awesome!

edit: I use a less expensive adapter without any issues.

u/lowlymarine · 22 pointsr/Android

It's hard for anything in this price range to compete with the Nextbit Robin, IMO. For $150, it has a fingerprint reader, NFC, headphone jack (lol), 1080p IPS display, dual speakers, comparable or better internals than other phones in the price range, and a near-stock UI with an official update to Nougat available. Sure, Razer is only honoring the warranty for six months but Le Eco is also pulling out of the US so who knows how long that warranty will be good for, either.

u/Kerafyrm · 1 pointr/Android

The HTC Evo 4G LTE is a great phone with the best display right now (same as the HTC One X). I'd recommend getting a 32 GB or 64 GB to throw in there on top of the 16 GB you already have:

32 GB microSD, Class 10 - $26.49

64 GB microSD, Class 10 - $54.51

The only drawback to the HTC Evo 4G LTE (other than being a Sprint exclusive) is the lack of a replaceable or extended battery. If you are a very heavy user, a PowerSkin case would add about 1500 mAh of battery life, but extended battery cases are NOT known for their reliability.

u/rebakis · 3 pointsr/Android

The offers are very few atm, there are probably better products directly from china. Expect the market to get flooded soon when the adoption increases. Remember the market for this is very small atm. Theoretically this should be produceable for cents, and definitely will be in the following year.

Here a some examples, if it works seems to depend on the device.. although if the device follow the USB-C standard it should work.örer-Charging-Adapter/dp/B071FJ68S4

u/laharah · 1 pointr/Android

yeah, I've been thinking about doing a workaround with the GOgroove wireless fm transmitter. I can use the bluetooth+fm transmitter for audio, an I think it has a USB port on the side I can use to connect a power cable. I just wish there was a clean "all in one" micro usb solution.

Oh well, at least I can use tasker to automate it. that or the NFC stickers I'm getting :D

u/gbux · -14 pointsr/Android

i know on this sub im gonna get downvoted down to hades for saying this, but why is everyone so bent outta shape about the headphone jack? if they remove it to add something meaningful to the phone is it really that bad? If it's just for aesthetics Im right there with you, but if there is a legit reason for it, why the hate? Besides if it comes with bluetooth 5.0 its gonna be great

Another point too is bluetooth 4.1 headphones arent terrible, and for me the slight decrease in sound quality and having to plug one more device in is more than made up for the fact that my phone isnt constantly tugging my ear buds out of my ears, or the fact that i gotta buy new earbuds every season because they stop working in one or both ears.

On top of that bluetooth headphones have come down in price and have gone up in quality. I bought these a while ago for the same price i was going to buy wired headphones for and theyre fantastic.

edit: a word

u/MistaHiggins · 5 pointsr/Android

If this ends up being official like the article suggests, it would flash like a stock ROM - without needing root or an unlocked bootloader. It wouldn't void the warranty as far as I could tell.

Also, magnetic charging port. I would rather have this than Qi charging. I bought a wireless charging dock for my nexus 5, but I would rather just use a magnetic cord that I don't have to fiddle with to make sure its on the dock the right way to charge.

I plan on getting one alongside a z3 if I go that route.

u/webheaded · 2 pointsr/Android

You can get a bluetooth adapter for your car that uses the lighter plugin and the 3.5mm input from your car to accept bluetooth from your phone. The one I got even does AptX. It's good enough that I don't feel like I HAVE to plug in when I'm in the car (though I could since I have a Pixel 1 and don't have to put up with that bullshit).

u/dhawal · 2 pointsr/Android

Take a look at the Logitech Tablet Keyboard for Android 3.0+. I just got it for my Xoom(ICS) and it works pretty well.

u/hendusoone · 2 pointsr/Android

Android is capable of much higher than class 6 speeds. Android itself can read and write as fast as the hardware will allow (that is, the SD card itself AND the phone's SD slot). So, it depends on which SD card technology is in your phone.

For exmaple: I've got a 64GB Sandisk UHS-1 microSD in my T-Mobile G2. The phone itself only claims to support SDHC, but this is clearly a SDXC card. Works flawlessly - I can use all of the space, and I get a read* speed of 10+MB/s and a write speed of 30+MB/s according to benchmarks.

So, when buying a SD card for your phone, do a bit of research to see what other people with your same phone are able to run. The published specs aren't always completely accurate.

u/wiiv · 2 pointsr/Android

I have a Gogroove Flexsmart x2 and it's great, been using it daily for a couple years. Has a FM modulator in case you don't have an aux in, has a USB charging port for your phone (since it plugs into the 12v jack), and independent volume/play/pause/track fwd/track back. I don't have to pull my phone out of my pocket at all.

One advantage with this Bluetooth adapter you've got a big central button to pause/play music answer/end calls. Two rocker buttons on the top to skip forward/backward. So along with the advantage of not needing to plug my phone in each time and having it auto connect I can control my phone without unlocking. Yes you have to plug the adapter into a power source (with a USB pass through if you want to charge your phone) and connect it to the auxiliary in your stereo. Once it's setup though you're done.

On my SGS3 I use NFC Unlock which is an XPosed Framework module to unlock my phone and run Car Ultra whenever I mount it to my car dock.

I also got a Kinivo BT car kit which connects to my phone automatically when it's in range. Bluetooth connect and play starts the music whenever the car BT is connected.

I can pause, next and prev tracks using the BT kit buttons which is cool but when I want to play a different album it's not nearly as easy as you would do using the car stereo. Car Home Ultra lets you add music playlist shortcuts but they need few interactions with the phone which I don't like.

u/cub31993 · 2 pointsr/Android

Then any of these cheap dongles wouldn't work (like this one) cause these don't have DACs. USB C type headphones on the other hand, do not use pins dedicated for analog audio and communicate with USB interface directly so that your device transports a digital stream instead along the cable that ends up in a DAC unit on a headphone/earphone itself.

u/ragflan · 8 pointsr/Android

I'm surprised the Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard for Android was not mentioned. I got this for $55 dollars in Australia for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 but it works with any tablet that has bluetooth so it should work with N7 no problems. Plus, the keyboard comes with a case which doubles as a dock for tablets. This keyboard also has Android-specific function keys. In my personal experience (note: my experience), Logitech keyboards feel better to type on but, in saying that, I have not used the 3 keyboards mentioned in this article.

EDIT: For those interested, it's $49 on Amazon and you can check the reviews.

> which this is, fitting so many hours of battery life, getting reliable bluetooth signals with only Millimeters of space inside your ears is fucking futuristic

Seriously? The buds themselves have subpar battery life compared to even the Chinese sets for its size. They have about 4-5 hours of battery life, which the smaller Jaybird X2 and X3's have managed to surpass with ~8 hour battery lives since they were released over 2 years ago and do not require a case or the Anker ones that are 1/6th the price with 7 hour battery life. The only reason they have "24 hour battery life" is due to the case with a secondary battery you you need to top them off. At that price you can get a secondary mini battery bank and get "OVER A WEEK OF CHARGE".

The only advantage these have is the quicker to connect tech they placed in, a capacitive surface to tap instead of buttons and live translation which is just a software barrier Google setup, not some proprietary hardware restriction. They are lack luster for their price, they don't excel in any category, not battery even with the extra capacity from the case (as you are required to use both ears at once instead being able to use just a single ear a la AirPods), not size again due to the case and debatable awkward design, not sound quality as it's at best on par with other buds in it's pricing category and not when it comes to syncing as it can only be connected to one device exclusively. If you choose to use it between multiple devices, you must sync it with the headphones in case and then complete a new process each time, it won't remember former devices you use it with despite this being a common feature among headsets a fraction of it's price. There's nothing innovative or great about this product, you can get far better ones for a fraction of the price.
