Kinda surprising this thread hasn't been flooded with spam.

Hey cretins, did you get your daily dose of IODINE today?

I did. I added some salt to my food for the first time in a while and it was TASTY.

Everything Else / What's a good mid-range Android phone?
« on: August 21, 2020, 08:15:06 am »
Hey guys, my Honor 8 is falling apart and I think it is time to look for a new phone. Sadly new Honors don't support Google services, so I'm looking for an alternative. I'm looking for something in the 200-400 price range.

So far my options are Motorola Moto G8 Power, Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro, OnePlus Nord G5 and Samsung Galaxy A41.

Can anyone vouch for these phones or know about any issues with their brands?

What I'm particularly interested in is if they can handle multiple apps open at the same time. I once bought a Nokia 6.1 which turned out to be trash because it kept killing my apps. I bought Honor 8 just a couple weeks later, which worked splendidly - until I dropped it two stories down.

I already tested out my mom's Motorola Moto G7 Power, which turned out to have similar tendencies to kill apps as the Nokia. So I guess that rules Motorola out. My next option would have been Xiaomi, but then I read about multiple Xiaomi users being banned in Pokemon Go for no reason. So that leaves OnePlus and Samsung. According to Don't Kill My App, they're both pretty bad, so I dunno what to think. However the site also says Huawei is particularly notorious for killing apps, but I never had any issues with my Honor phones whatsoever. So I dunno how reliable this information is:

Can anyone recommend a good Android phone max 400 that doesn't kill my apps? On that awful Nokia I could hardly check Whatsapp without being greeted by a loading screen when returning to Pokemon Go.

Which phones do you guys use?

Oh yeah I saw it on the news. It's amazing how you could actually see the shockwave.

"The Mask"

So it is
Alone again
Take off the mask
There's no pretence

To meet people
To have friends
Pretend you're fine
Or it ends

Conceal the flaws
Don't let them see
You're not the person
You're meant to be

Alone again
In my head
Tossing, turning
In my bed

The truth is burned
Into my face
A mark of shame
You can't erase

Alone again
With my face
Can't let you see
My disgrace

Oh man, Pokemon Snap. Always wanted to play that as a kid, but I couldn't get the emulator to work.

Now if they're announcing Gen 4 remakes next week, then I guess I'm finally getting a Switch!

But if it turns out to be Pokemon Let's Go 2, then... Meh. I can wait.

Uh, excuse me, I already have a forum game about this:

Although, technically speaking, the act of creating a new thread about the same subject and filling it with off-site links means you're winning.

Well, that one is just about spamming. This one is about breaking ALL the rules.

Well, being a non-native speaker, I guess I don't have such a strong reaction to most English words. Words, turds, hurts birds. Whatever. Doesn't mean much to me. There are probably even some words that I misunderstand completely.

So yeah I thought if I should name this thread "LBTGQ" or whatever but I thought that was pretty lame. I hope I do not offend anyone.

The disparity between English and my native language is pretty fun, though. I feel like you almost get a new personality when you switch languages. There are just some things that are common in English speech but are never said in Finnish. And vice versa. Even the type of things you talk about tend to be different. I think these two languages tend to have different kind of energies. And rules - about what is allowed or not.

So yeah words are definitely important. Language shapes the world. Can't deny that. But in the end it is up to the listener how they want to interpret things - and whether to give someone the benefit of the doubt.

So now that this is the land of the living dead, does that mean the rules are no longer in effect?

We're all outlaws here.
