I got a DeX for my work Samsung S8. It's surprisingly good.

What's the best/simplest VOIP app for me to host a conference call tomorrow? I'm looking for free/pay-as-you-go, with easy setup and minimal headaches.

Can I post here that my inlaws keep buying us Kindle Fires, and they suck. Well, actually, the Amazon app store sucks. If that were better, Kindles would be pretty cool.

Been doing some testing at work with the Samsung S9.

It's a beautiful phone, but I couldn't wait to get back to my Pixel 2.

Samsung's instance to hinder their phones with all the ridiculous hand gestures, terrible interface (TouchWiz) and laughable Bixby is perplexing.

Why waste the development dollars on this shit? Why not just let Google do all the heavy lifting for you?

I updated my iOS last night and now my screen looks blown out and weird and ugly and I can’t get it back to how I like it. Fucking Apple.

It's an easy fix

Don't use Apple products

Those new folding cell phones look ridiculous, but flexible displays are important step in technology.

I wonder how their stock is going to do with the announcement that they want to make money from software while at the same time hiding their hardware sales numbers.

Our IT department was in some kind of pissing match with our carrier, so I'm finally about to upgrade to the Pixel 3.

The Pixel 2 has been the best phone I've ever had. I hope the Pixel 3 can live up to that standard.

New company does a monthly stipend instead of company-issued cell phones.

Had to give back my Pixel 3.

Was kinda tempted to do a 12-month lease (at $12 a month!) with the Galaxy S10, but I can't go back to the bloat of non-vanilla Android. No costume rom and/or minilamist launcher can replicate the Pixel experience.

I guess I'll use my old iPhone SE until the Pixel 3a come out in a month or so.

It's crazy that so much is known about the 3a but it's still technically rumoured since it's not announced.

Glad I waited for the Pixel 3a. Camera's better than the S10 and iPhone Xs and it really only sacrifices shit that I don't need/want.

Only $400, Google's photo processing and instant Android updates, bub.

Most people won't notice the difference in processing power.

Jesus, Google's giving me $250 for my 3-year-old iPhone SE as a trade-in for the Pixel 3a.

Then you also get $100 in Google Store credit with the purchase.

Yeah, that's the same thing I'm doing.

And you get $100? I didn't see that. I need to find that deal.
