This was purchased to replace a Galaxy Note 5 that was unfortunately damaged beyond repair. I do NOT expect this phone to be as durable as the 5, due to the curved “screen edge” design, that replaced a very solid metal chassis rim with fragile glass, but it has expandable memory, which the Note 5 lacks.
I am only 2 days into learning my way through the new interface, and I still find it very irritating, but I assume I will get used to it. I am not ready to droip this in the toilet, to see if the standard of waterproofing is up to the Note 5’s which survived that test.
I may buy a second one just to have a spare on hand, if this one shatters the first time it hits the floor. The camera is not up to modern phone standards, but the battery was adeuate to video a 2 1/2 hour concert this evening.
I bought it for features the new phones have eliminated: expandable memory, headphone jack, heart rate sensor and pulse oxymeter. I bought this instead of another Note 5 cuz I wanted expandable memory and USB-C.
I got this when I turned 30 and that was 5 years ago. Most efficient and reliable phone I ever owned. I never needed to lug around a laptop whenever I have to do light office work remotely. I can read documents, edit documents, read/review/reply to emails as if working on a computer.
With the help of compatible apps, even print docs and pictures like I would in my office set-up. The big display screen, multi window capability and the S-Pen are the best! Made working remotely very easy.
If my budget just permitted back then, I would’ve gotten the one with the higher memory. I took a lot of photos and videos of my first born with this phone and saved a lot of documents for work. In terms of battery, as expected it worn out a little over time but still not a wall hugger even after 5 years.
I used my previous phone Samsung Galaxy S8 for more than 5 years and it’s been the best phone I have ever used. I was looking for something as reliable and amazing as Samsung S8. After a lot of search I thought nothing else but Samsung Galaxy note 8 would be the right choice for my requirements.
I am an extensive reader and I love making notes on documents I read. The S pen is a great addition and I love how handy it is. The photo and the video quality is exactly like my samsung s8 and I am very satisfied with that.
Pretty fast, big storage availability and of course not to forget the beautiful sleek design, massive screen and the quick response makes it the best phone you could buy for the money. Great buy.
With its easy-to-navigate menu, voice typing and video chat, you’ll enjoy staying connected to friends and family with the Jitterbug Smart3. In emergencies big or small, just press the Urgent Response button and a certified Urgent Response Agent will get you the help you need.
You can also speak to a board-certified doctor or registered nurse, enjoy affordable car service and much more.
Don’t buy, incompatible with apps. Posting this for my Dad, a veteran with this phone I tried to set up for him with e banking and vet apps. Can’t install the banking app, can’t install the Veterans Admin Health Apps; the apps refuse to install because the Jitterbug’s Operating System is TOO OLD.
All Jitterbug Smart phones, even the newest Smart 3 runs Android 7. 0 and there is NO UPDATE plan. Just skip these phones until the vendor comes to their senses and updates the OS immediately to Android 9 or higher and makes a commitment to stay up to date.
Granted, the interface and Home Screen for seniors is great. It really is. But that’s NOT SUFFICIENT… The compatibility of these “senior friendly” systems must be kept up to date with the latest OS for security updates the phones need to be safe on the internet and meet install requirements of Play Store Applications that you will likely want to add to the phone.
And this company does NOT keep up to date, making this phone OBSOLETE on purchase, unless you “never plan on adding any modern application, like electronic banking or VA apps” that I’ve failed to get installed recently.
The Jitterbug phones aren’t speed demons, but they can get the job done if they at least have the chance to install the apps. [Own a Jitterbug Smart 2 running Android OS 7. 0 Nougat].
Mom has one, I’m the tech-support guy, and we’ve been using it about 8 months now. These things are probably the easiest-to-use senior phones out there, but they still have major, inexplicable issues.
Mostly with their user interface. You can somewhat control what options appear on the home screen. But several unwanted options (internet, etc. ) cannot be hidden. Stripped-down, super simple, is the only way to go when you’re dealing with 80-year-olds, but Lively can’t be bothered to improve your options here.
Making a call is not easy. It’s oddly a five step process. If the contact only has one number it still makes you select it, still makes you choose between call and text, and finally lets you “place call.
” Try explaining that to your grandma. Also, if it’s easier to use the SPEAKER option for some people, it’s hard to tell if it’s enabled or disabled: The button is either blue or white, but the icon stays the same and it just says SPEAKER.
Voicemail. Accessing “visual” voicemail is also a way-too-many-steps process. Visual voicemail should be dead simple, but this is another 5-step series of button pushes that could and should be greatly simplified.
Again, if an 80-year old can’t manage it, than something is wrong. Spam: No way to quickly block spam callers/texters. You have to leave the Lovely system, get into the Android system, and copy/paste numbers you want blocked.
Ugh. Finally, OS updates undo all the access and permissions you’ve already enabled or disabled in the past. Why doesn’t it save them? And the UPDATE banner doesn’t go away, either, so you kind of have to update.
This is supposed to be a simplified phone for seniors to use. Overall I think this is reasonably successful; however, there are some major limitations if you are used to most Android phones. The biggest issue my friend has is with making calls while using other apps.
Key example: Her physician sees her by telemedicine. She uses an app to request call @ appointment time. By phone call she receives 12 character confirmation code for security. At that point the app is blocked from completing setup because the Dial Pad has a bubble banner at the top of the screen “to return to phone call”.
App will not open next step because it is blocked by the Dial Pad banner which is a popup. Have to hang up before can continue. Any web app or android app which utilizes input in the top 1/2″ of the screen will not work phone call in progress because Dial Pad banner blocks input in that part of screen & that part of screen is not visible.
Extended call with Tech support. No good Answer. I was going to use another Dialer app; however, Lively has programed it to prevent any other Dialer app from working. Lively resets Dial Pad as default dialer every ~20 seconds.
Created for mobile filmmakers, photographers, and broadcasters, the Xperia PRO 512GB 5G Smartphone from Sony has been engineered to live stream and upload high-resolution content at blistering 5G mmWave speeds.
To ensure you get the fastest speeds possible, a Network Visualizer app can be used to test signal strength, letting you set up live shots in the best possible location. Other technologies, such as a body made from a low dielectric constant material and 360° beamforming antenna, further boost your ability to achieve and sustain a strong 5G signal.
You can also use the Micro-HDMI connection to utilize the phone’s brilliant 21:9 CinemaWide 6. 5″ 4K HDR OLED screen as a pro-style live monitor, offering more accurate color and image representation onscreen.
This high-quality output is made possible with Creator Mode, which provides a BT. 2020 color space, DCI-P3 100% color gamut, and a calibrated D65 white point.
Sony Xperia Pro is the greatest phone / camera I have ever owned or used. The battery life is phenomenal and with Battery Guard you will receive longer usage from the battery and cannot overcharge. Reception is great with the beam forming antenna(s) that surround the phone.
Sony has not loaded this phone with bloat-ware but with the greatest phone based photography software in this segment of the market. To support my newly revived interest in digital photography I added a 2 terabyte memory storage chip.
Amazing phone. Amazing camera. And the before and after sales experience with B&H was great. They took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns. My phone arrived in 2 days after purchase. If you are a pro or amateur digital photographer as I am, this phone deserves serious consideration.
I wish B&H would not represent the Xperia Pro as actually working with the AT&T 5G network. My experience may be unique, although I reside in an area with AT&T 5G beginning in late fall of 2020. I got my Xperia Pro late January 2021.
To this day there is no provisioning to use it on AT&T 5G. Sony blames AT&T and AT&T blames SONY. This consumer is stuck in an unending rabbit hole in the middle. It is a great phone, but disgusting that I cannot use it on 5G.
I hope no one else with AT&T has this experience. Any AT&T folks out there with actual provisioning for the AT&T 5G network?.
This is a great phone. It does everything that I expected it to do. The eternal monitor app works perfectly (which is the main reason that I wanted the phone), the camera quality is great. I’ve only had the phone for a couple weeks but I have zero complaints.
Wield the mystical power of the Force with this unlocked 256GB Samsung Galaxy Note10+ Star Wars phone. The 12GB of RAM and 2. 9GHz octa-core processor offer speed and performance, while the 6. 8-inch AMOLED Infinity display delivers immersive visuals.
This black Samsung Galaxy Note10+ Star Wars phone features the Star Wars logo, Sith-inspired accents and packaging for a dark faraway galaxy vibe.
This is hands down one of the best phones I’ve ever owned! I love that Samsung added the screen record finally! I love the single take camera update as well as the link to windows with your phone companion.
I can save files on my phone and when I go to my laptop it’s so easy to pull up those files without having to bother with your phone. I haven’t been able to try out the music share just yet. The phone also charges up other wireless charging devices which could be improved because it’s a little slow at charging but the simple fact that it can do that at all is a blessing I can’t tell you how many times I forgot the charger to my watch and had to use my phone to charge it.
I wish they would add more features to messaging that’s one thing I do like about my iPhone but I cannot have an iPhone without an Android because I always feel like I’m missing something. Now if they would only bring back the multiplayer game section they use to have where you can play with other users (never understood why they took it off) but will do it for me! Also I’m thank for the AR emoji update and my phone charges quick and it last long so I don’t really have battery issues.
screen protector is not warrantied so i spent an hour this morning getting set up with your local repair center to replace my scratched factory installed screen protector before the warranty ran out.
so now the repair center called and said they don’t replace those, and basically i am out of luck because samsung does not replace those. why put a screen protector on that you don’t stand by? all my previous phones i used a high end phone case with built in screen protector to protect my phone.
i am so disappointed that i will just have to live with scratched screen instead of having the ability to replace it myself. samsung really fell short on a great phone by claiming you had a screen protector, but not standing behind it.
I have had this phone for about a week or two now, and I LOVE IT. For the most part. I give it four stars because the battery was going down fast for being brand new, so I had to fix my phone’s settings.
If you purchase this phone, I definitely recommend putting it on medium power saving mode and turning on the adaptive power saving mode. It seems to have fixed the power drain! One less important problem with this phone is the sound.
When I turn the volume onto the highest setting, it shakes the back of the phone pretty bad. It’s kind of funny feeling the vibrations of music in the palm of my hand. Besides the battery and the volume problem, it is overall a wonderful phone.
It is very large, and has a beautiful screen. It does not drop my calls and the calls are crystal clear! The S pen is also a nice feature. Making hand-written notes and having the ability to translate another language’s word on the spot gets a 10/10! Worth the price.
Razer – Phone 2 64GB (FACTORY UNLOCKED) 5. 7″ 8GB RAM Black – Stay connected and enjoy a portable gaming experience with this Razer Phone 2 gaming smartphone. This phone features a Snapdragon 845 2. 8GHz processor for robust gaming power, while UltraMotion graphics technology ensures sharp, lag-free visuals.
This Razer Phone 2 gaming smartphone is water resistant and includes wireless charging and Chroma RGB lighting. Cell Phone, Unlocked phones, Fusion Electronix, Razer, Razer – Phone 2 64GB (FACTORY UNLOCKED) 5.
It’s a good phone and it’ll do the basics of what a phone should do with a little added extra. With the case on, it’s very durable and has lasted well after being submurged in water and dropped multiple times.
In a well lit area, the cameras are really good, and you can get some really nice photos with the 4K camera on the back. It handles games really well too and the 1440p 120Hz screen is very nice. The cons to it are that AR compatibility was removed.
The LED on the back drains the battery very quickly and causes the back of the phone to get really hotAnd sometimes it freezes for a couple seconds after using the home button, but that might not be a widespread issue.
The camera has a lot of bugs where it doesn’t start up though and sometimes you can’t even use it without restarting the phone (and sometimes that doesn’t even fix the issue). Pros: * Nice screen* Good camera (when it works)* DurableCons:* Pretty buggy sometimes, mostly with the camera* Okay battery life with the LED off* LED causes the phone to heat up a lot.
Trust me when I say get any other phone. Yes i know the phone seems cool especially for gamers and coming from a company like razer. But just get any other phone, ive had 2 of these and one of my friends also got one and let me just say thats its terrible.
There are sudden unexpected loud noises that come out. The charging port on the phone is absolutely bad and will not register the cable most of the times so its a pain to charge this phone. Apps crash frequently, the camera is horrifyingly low quality, if youve never gotten drunk before and would like to see an example just use this phones camera.
But the camera wasnt my main reason for the phone so it doesnt matter much but still, there is so many wrong stuff that goes on with this phone that its just not worth investing into. Get something better dont waste time on this one.
A potentially great phone ruined by pathetic quality control. Let’s just say after a year of decent use the phone can no longer hold a charge for more than 12 hours while idle and only 4 hours while active.
The charging port stopped working completely and i was only able to charge wirelessly. When i tried to get these parts repaired razer simply stated “we do not make razer phones as well as parts for Razer phones anymore”.
Now my Razer Phone 2 is the most expensive paper weight i own 🙂 thank you Razer.
Sporting a very large 6. 8″ Max Vision FHD+ display, the 2021 Moto G Stylus 128GB Smartphone gives you a large canvas for the integrated stylus, and a large viewfinder for its quad rear cameras. The stylus offers you pinpoint accuracy that opens up a wide gamut of capabilities not typically possible with the tap of a finger.
The photos you edit can be taken by a camera system with wide-ranging capabilities. You get a 48MP quad-pixel main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. The 12MP quad-pixel technology is ideal for low-light images, the 118° ultra-wide lens is great for large group shots and sprawling vistas, the macro lens gets you 5x closer for capturing fine details, and the depth sensor lets you split the foreground from the background.
When used in Portrait Mode, the depth sensor lets you apply bokeh to make your subject pop. Additional camera modes let you get even more creative with the Moto G Stylus.
I’ve really liked my previous Moto phones, ESPECIALLY the Moto g7 Power with it’s incredible battery life! They’ve been great “budget” phones (around $200-ish) that don’t feel cheap like many “budget” phones.
Always good, solid function with everything I need in a phone, and without the frills I don’t care about. I buy my (unlocked) phones outright/cash directly from the Motorola website. I bought this Moto g Stylus (2020) instead of replacing the charging port on my Moto g7 Power which was a couple years old.
I took a deep dive into the specs and chose the 2020 version instead of the 2021 because it had all the specs I wanted most. I assumed getting a newer phone—with great specs on paper—would be an upgrade of sorts.
Boy was I wrong. The performance of the g Stylus is TERRIBLE. It’s incredibly slow, lags & freezes a TON, and is SUPER glitchy. And I’m not talking about internet speeds, though that’s slow, laggy & glitchy too.
Even when on gig speed internet. It’s so laggy in fact, that it’s taken me 25+ minutes to write a 3 minute review because the phone freezes mid-sentence and takes a loooooong time to unfreeze. if it unfreezes at all.
Sometimes the only thing I can do is restart my phone and start over from scratch. which is incredibly frustrating as I lose any work or online activity I was engaged in when it froze. Other minor issues: the stylus pops out at the slightest bump of the phone.
And that baby can fly out quickly and fairly far. I’ve had a few search parties for it. The screen sensitivity to the stylus is also not good. Often times the screen won’t pick up the marks made with the stylus, rendering it useless.
(Yes, I have adjusted the screen sensitivity on settings. ) I also don’t like that the 6. 4″ screen is just longer & skinnier than the g7 Power’s 6. 1″ screen. The two phones are about the same size overall, but the g Stylus screen is just skinnier by eliminating some of the “dead space” that the g7 Power screen had.
It just doesn’t have the feel or function of a truly bigger phone/screen. The biggest issue is the lag & freeze. The other issues are minor, but the terrible slow performance is something I’d definitely consider as a “deal breaker.
” Now I just need to figure out if I want to take a chance on buying a different Moto phone, repair my older g7 Power, or go with another brand altogether. This is the first Moto phone that I would *not* recommend.
Overall I am happy with the phone, the biggest drawbacks are slow and lagging speeds, the camera does not work as well as expected or claimed, same I’m having issues with charging the phone. My software is updated and my apps are as well.
All security updates are in place. Loading apps can be very frustrating and take a lot of time. Sometimes the app will hang and I have to force stop and then restart them. Photos taken on the camera do not look as good as they did on my previous phone.
They appear to have some blur to them and just very low quality / resolution. I am using the default camera app that comes with the phone, I have tried a few third-party camera apps but they don’t seem like they can use the cameras properly on the phone.
Maybe there’s something I’m missing in the app. Charging the phone has just become a concern. When I would plug it in it would show me that I’m turbo charging, same as my previous phone, but this last week it only shows “charging” or “charging rapidly”.
I have even tried my previous turbo charger will the same results. My previous phone was a Motorola Z3, never an issue charging it nor any of my other Motorola turbo charging phones. I really enjoy the upgraded Android software, it has many features that I like.
I really like the stylus, it is a little bit slow, but works very well. The fingerprint reader on the back is much better than I thought it would be, it’s very responsive. I got a Motorola branded case for it which I believe is much better than the aftermarket cases.
The battery does last longer than it did on my Z3. You have much more control over the sound on this phone as well.
As far as I’m concerned, this phone is excellent. Purchased it on sale at BB for 199. The difference between the 2021 model (which is 4G capable) and the 2022 model (which is 5G capable) wasn’t worth the higher price for my purposes.
The stylus may not be necessary these days for some buyers, but it is tucked out of the way if you don’t have much use for it. It comes in handy for me, however, when I text (converts my handwriting into typewritten text which is quicker and easier for me than using the keyboard).
Also when the stylus is released, you can elect to have it activate a program that allows you to make some quick notes without activating the phone itself. Camera is very good and I was able to transport all the info from my old phone to this one without any issues.
Phone updates to Android 11 soon after use. I have Mint Mobile and the phone was quickly recognized by Mint upon insertion of my old Sim card. The Sim card tray has room for an additional SD card if you want more memory for some reason.
Battery life is about 2 days depending on use. Charger is included, though the cord is a bit short. The phone is 6. 8 inches (diagonally), but fits in my front pants pocket without a problem. Bought this phone to replace an LG G6+ that was giving me trouble once too often.
I personally don’t see the point of paying megabucks for a phone. I recommend this one as offering plenty of bang for the buck.
Google Pixel 3A comes with a 5. 6-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2220 pixels. The Google Pixel 3A is powered by Snapdragon 670 processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage.
As far as the cameras are concerned, the Google Pixel 3A packs a 12. 2 megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 8-megapixel front shooter for selfies. Google Pixel 3A runs Android 9. 0 and is powered by a 3000mAh non removable battery.
It measures 151. 3 x 70. 1 x 8. 2 mm and weighs 147 grams.
In the 10+ years of being exclusively an Android user, every Android phone I’ve ever owned has been plagued with issues. Data loss was a frequent occurrence. Data migration always missed files when moving to a new device.
Support was always a painful experience. My experience with my most recent Google device, the Pixel 3a, was no different than any other Android phone I’ve ever owned: Spectacularly frustrating. So after 10+ years of being an Android user, I’m done.
The Pixel 3a is the last Android phone I’ll ever own. I bought an iPhone 13 as a replacement, and it’s spectacularly good. I’m very happy to have made the switch.
Today was the last straw. My wife has a Samsung Galaxy S10. We were both sent group texts from my son announcing his newborn baby’s name with a photo. She received her text. I did not receive mine. This has happened before, too.
On our 2020 Forester, the phone’s navigation app occasionally stops working. Imagine on a busy freeway the difficulty this creates. Luckily if my wife is in the car, she then navigates on her Galaxy S10 always without problems.
I frequently find that its sound for receiving texts fails even after repeatedly checking notification settings.
Have had my Pixel 3A for less than 1-1/2 years–had problems by 5 months. Biggest problems are (1) constant dropped audio (can’t hear other person after 5-10 minutes or less) and (2) call dropping altogether and inability to then call out.
Also have some freezing and loss of connection to Wifi. Reported issues to Google 6 months in, but Google simply provided the resetting Network troubleshooting suggestion that didn’t work. It was hard to follow up during the pandemic because customer service was maxed out, and it was impossible to get through.
So when I finally followed up again and got a response, Google said it was past warranty. After much time and effort on my part documenting how I had contacted them without results during the warranty period, Google told me to send in my phone to be replaced by a refurbished model.
(Note: Google wouldn’t send the refurb before receiving my defective phone. They simply expect customers to have a backup phone to use or be without a phone–despite the fact that the problem is with their product.
) The refurbished phone had the exact same issues from Day 1. The Pixel 3a is so unreliable and so stressful that I have now ordered an iPhone to replace this horrendous phone. Such a waste of money and a complete disappointment!.
The advanced camera system with A13 Bionic brings you Portrait mode, which artfully blurs the background to put the focus on your subject even when youre taking selfies. A simple slider lets you blur the background as much or as little as you like before or after you take the photo.
Portrait Lighting. Choose from six studioquality effects, then adjust the lighting intensity to show your subject in the best possible light. Nextgeneration Smart HDR knows a face when it sees one, and intelligently relights it to capture more natural-looking contours and skin tones.
4K video means youll see four times more detail than in 1080p HD video. iPhone SE is water resistant to 1 meter for 30 minutes. 2. Its not afraid of a little coffee, tea, or soda either. And dust? No worries.
iPhone SE is made to run the latest features and even some that havent been invented yet. So you can use Dark Mode, Siri Shortcuts, and the new Photos app now. This 64GB White iPhone SE is locked to Simple Mobile and can only be used with Simple Mobile service.
I can rate the delivery experience and what is included with the phone but it’s impossible to give a review of the actual product since every phone’s condition will be different and there are various vendors supplying the restored phones.
The phone arrived quickly and was packaged well. It came with a charger, sim removal tool and a screen protector. The battery was at 85% and it was listed as being better than 80% so that was good. On my phone there were 6 noticeable scratches on the screen.
Two of them bigger than the others and one near the middle of the screen. It’s not too deep but I can see it when the phone is in bright light. There is supposed to be a 90 day return period but I don’t think I care enough to swap this phone for another one that might be in worse condition.
You are buying a used phone so expect it to look used. The setup process was easy. I was able to transfer the data from my old iPhone by putting it near the other phone. This phone doubled the storage of my old phone so that’s pretty awesome.
I would suggest getting a case as soon as possible for the phone. It’s very slippery and I almost dropped it 5 times before the new case arrived. This phone will support iOS 16 which is why I upgraded from the iPhone SE original.
It’s slightly larger than the old SE model and my tiny hands have trouble reaching the whole screen if I use one hand. My thumb can’t reach the one corner of the screen. I had to rearrange my icons so the important ones were within thumb reach.
It also has an extra row of icons since the screen is slightly bigger. It has 24 app icons per screen. This phone doesn’t have a headphone jack but there are lightning to 3. 5 mm jack adapters out there.
I ran a free IMEI check on the phone to make sure it wasn’t stolen and ran a free diagnostic program to make sure everything was working as it should. Both checks were successful. Overall I’m happy with the purchase.
It was a good price but I do wish the screen didn’t have that light scratch right in the middle of the screen.
I’ve had this phone since it was released, so coming up on 2 years in the spring. I have had problems with it since I received it. I love the size since I have small hands so it fits well into my hands & is easy to text.
However functionality-wise it leaves a lot to be desired. The signal seems weak in most places; I can’t use it in my bedroom on network or WiFi. I drop calls in the car everyday, regardless of where I am.
It used to be that 3 out of 4 bars was still considered a decent strength signal; on this phone, it barely works with 3 bars – pretty much everything I try to do outside of texting results in a spinning wheel on the phone & a delayed or no response.
It can be incredibly frustrating at times especially when I need GPS to work or need to make a call. The camera is fine; there are some features that don’t work or just disappear like if I take a picture from a text thread.
A lot of times my keyboard or my ‘send’ key will disappear, so I have to close out & start over. Bottom line, I’ve had a lot of performance issues with this phone since I got it so I would not recommend it.
Both my elderly Mom and handicapped sister are very happy with their phones. Their old phones were the iPhone 6s Plus, and they were afraid to move away from having the old ‘home’ button. My sisters’ hands are twisted from her motorcycle accident many years ago, so she’s delighted with the smaller size of this SE phone.
My Mom would have preferred the Plus size again, but I gave her the choice between the home button or the larger phone and she choose the iPhone SE. Both of them are extremely pleased with the operation of their phones.
Mom says that hers is ‘nice and loud’ so she can hear it in the next room. As an artist she is always taking pictures and she’s enjoying the picture quality on the phone. They both are pleased with the phone purchases.
That’s a win! My husband and I also upgraded our iPhone XS Max to the new iPhone 13 Pro Max and are very pleased. Verizon has taken good care of us over the years.

Durable phone with great cosmetics and sleek design? Yes. LG delivered once again a great allrounder for office rats and outdoor fans at the same time. Great cameras, very good audio/video, nice features like 3.
5mm jack, MIL-STD, Gorilla Glass 5/6 protection, barometer and very responsive always-on display. Quick processor and loads of storage. Great battery life, 21W fast charge, wireless charging, what do you need more? The only small downside is the slow fingerprint reader in the display, but when you get used to it, it doesn’t really matter.
Just hold your finger little bit longer for 2 seconds and it does the job. It actually makes you feel more secure when you have to hold your finger little bit longer – you know, James Bond style. All and all, this phone is just amazing for it’s price and can compete with much more expensive phones that actually lack some of the features, durability mainly.
Go for it while it’s still on the market. Android 10 is still doing well and will be there with us some more years.
Though this phone is decent, it has a lot going for it especially for its price point thus its creativity. fast responsive, colors on the OLED screen pop with vibrancy. But that’s where it ends, other than just being a phone there’s really nothing else you can do with it.
The camera is old and not very good. The second screen isn’t useless but they never really gave you much thought on how to use it. The outside only displays the time and no further information. The whale app should just be part of the phone as a “Featured Function” Also worth mentioning, I feel that maybe an S-pen should’ve been included; to make use of the dual screens.
So lastly the real reason for my purchasing this product, is simply for some kind of dual gaming! which I know LG mentioned as a multi-tooled device, But I think gaming should’ve been their direction.
So unfortunately they cant make a GX 2 to address these fixes. Maybe then it would’ve been a nifty device to enjoy having in your pocket.
I purchased LG G8X THINK Q am so happy to use this mobile in my hand it’s give too good look and best ever experience in my life now my age is 27 till now this is the best phone am using my first mobile from LG is LG GU 220 slider mobile till now it is there with me if a chance is there am ready to use that mobile is this generation also but it’s stoped but no problem now am using the best phone ever may be in feature I can use more advanced mobile from LG Brand am waiting for that day.
My feelings about LG Brand and Innovations. The father of innovation Steve Jobs if he there in this world till now he is the first person to appreciate LG INNOVATIONS and may be he can learn from LG Brand how to innovate more like LG.
This is my feelings about LG. Am so proud to be LG family even in my house am using LG Fridge, LG washing machine , LG TV. My First TV is LG Sampurnadelux it works fine till now am planning to purchase 4k TV now.
No dought about it I’ll definitely purchase LG TV am saving my money to purchase LG product the priceing is high of LG products because the quality is high. Talk about LG G8X the best mobile the best features the best quality the best performance compared to others.
In feature I want to see more mobiles and appliances from LG with more innovative ideas. Am so happy to be a part in LG. Only one thing discomfort from LG decision LG removes Charger from LG G8X THINK Q I can understand how they doing that.
To remove e materials from planet it’s a great idea but I don’t have extra chargers at me and I can only use LG charger to my LG mobile I can’t use another brand accessories to LG because its decrease LG brand value for me it’s my opinion LG always in top so I can’t.
I want to purchase charger for my mobile unfortunately in my area there is no official and authorized service center for mobile what can I do I tried from another city but they are saying different cost and different words no stock.
From my side a small request please sell the accessories on LG Official online store it is very useful to LG customers we can purchase genuine product from LG store. LG always make the best products fro customers.
In LG mobile the display is too good I never see this kind of quality and sound it’s very very excellent no words the best experience to me. And the camera is pro like DSLRs about performance no words to say it’s amazing and quality it’s more than 1000 times than apple mobiles.
There is no computation and competaters to LG Brand. Am always loving LG Brand I never ever live LG the most interesting and inspiration word is LG – Life’s Good. Am so proud to useing LG mobile Thank you.
ATTENTION!!! Due to recent Verizon policy changes on 3G devices please make sure to check with Verizon before buying if you will be able to activate the phone model on your plan. You have to meet the following requirement in order to add this phone to your plan due to the new Verizon activation policy.
1. You are an existing Verizon basic plan postpaid subscriber and you use any 3G basic phone before. 2. Your number is not associate with any Verizon family plan which already has 4G LTE smartphone activated in this plan.
This phone is a new old stock historical item. It is in beautiful condition and works perfectly for what I want to use it for. It was the worlds first android phone and was the very same smart phone model I used in 2009.
It cant be activated because Verizon no longer supports the os, but it does go on the internet using wifi and plays music just fine. You cant update the apps because android market is defunct and Google play needs at least android 4.
1 to operate. The phone os only updates as far as android 2. 4 because of the processor and ram. But this phone is intended to be for my collection and just played with occasionally so I am happy with its practical functionally.
Phone is fast and has excellent battery life. I’m a low to moderate user and it gets me up to the evening of day 2 with 20% battery remaining. I’m running Android 5. 1. However, if you’re coming from a fully customizable ROM such as cyanogenmod, you will be really disappointed at how much limited control you have with the settings on this phone.
Little things such as having a sync icon on the notifications drawer, modifying/adding icons to the notification drawer, being able to easily switch location between battery saving and device only, having a reboot menu on the power button menu and many, many others.
This phone is loaded with Verizon apps and other third party apps especially from Amazon. Most of them you can disable but some of them you’ll have to learn to live with. And finally, this phone was built for Verizon, even though its Factory unlocked, every time you reboot the phone it will always warn you the the SIM card isn’t from Verizon.
Its a harmless warning that you can easily dismiss but it’s just annoying. Overall am happy with the purchase though. The pros outweigh the cons for me. If you don’t intend to use this phone on Verizon I would suggest getting a Moto Maxx.
The features are exactly the same and it won’t have any carrier specific bloatware.
Outstanding phone. Obviously this battery is the best in the business, but like most manufacturers it doesn’t give you the option to add an sd card, so get one that has plenty of memory. (min 64gb). But here is something that all you FoxFi fans want to hear.
This is all you folks with the unlimited data plans with Verizon. Yes it does work. it doesn’t work as a WiFi hotspot like it use to, however, it will work as an internet connection to your computer or other devices if you tether the phone to other devices.
We currently save $60 a month on home internet $720 a year by tethering. The most recent updates of KitKat and Lollypop took out the Hotspot feature but you still have the work around by downloading PDANET+ to the phone and of course FoxFi app, and then downloading the desktop version of PDANET to your computer desktop.
I am not a computer geek, if I can do it so can you. Hopefully down the road FoxFi hackers will fix a work around so tethering is not required. Slight hassle but at least your phone gets its charge topped off during the hook up.
I’ve had a Motorola since 1998 and have found them to be long lasting and durable. I basically use my phone to talk and text and use some social media. I listen to podcasts and watch some YouTube videos.
I also take pictures and haven’t had any complaints with the camera. My only negative thing to say is that I wish it had an actual “back” arrow instead of having to Swype up or from the left side of the screen but I realize that times have changed and this is a normal feature on most smart phones now.
I also searched this phone out specifically because I didn’t want the fingerprint sensor on the side of the phone because I think it just looks strange. It is on the back of this phone but I actually haven’t used it.
It is a little wider than my previous Motorola but I added a customized pop socket on the back and it is working out great to hold it. Would be wonderful if it had wireless charging capability but again — I understand that it’s a fairly inexpensive phone.
Overall, I am wondering why I waited 6 years to get a new phone ! Battery life has also been great — no issues. I use it all day long and charge it at night when it’s time for bed. Thank you Motorola!.
I’m pretty happy with it overall so far. Two small issues I found quickly were an issue where the screen would not respond to keyboard touches while held sideways (seems to be an issue with certain apps more than the phone.
My older motorola phones did not have that issue, but it only seems to be specific games where I notice it. ) and the other is actually the design of the edge of the screen has a small groove that managed to gather some debris.
Otherwise, the phone is great. The camera is pretty solid for my purposes. It loads apps quickly and boots fast. I actually picked this phone because it didn’t have the screen edge features that I would trigger on my previous phone by accident constantly, so A+ on not going that way.
Not that I use earbuds, but for those interested, it has a jack as well. Always feel weird about cameras built into the screen, but it’s a style choice. Oh, and I think this phone has a bit better of an antenna than I had with my Edge or ePower which is a welcome bonus as so many phones drop service in and around my workplace.
Overall, this is a solid phone, esp. for the price. With the industry moving to bigger-and-bigger phones, though, I don’t really like any of them, so this one is more like a good choice among a host of bad choices.
I continue to prefer the Moto line of phones over anything else out there based on value, battery life, microSD support and the convenience of Moto actions. I just wish they would stop making every new phone bigger than the last one.
Tablets and laptops are for larger screens. I’d like a phone to still fit in my front pants pocket comfortably (this one does not). Pros: * Great value: price vs. feature list is excellent (I paid $300 on a Moto sale) * Fantastic battery life (4+ days) * Moto actions (chop for flashlight, etc.
) * microSD support Cons: * Size: too big to keep in my front pocket while sitting * Rear fingerprint: have to pick up the phone to use it * Rear fingerprint: can’t use a case with a foldable cover (esp.
if left-handed) * Speaker: location (bottom) means resting the phone on something while using blocks the sound * Speaker: sound quality is sub-par, though plenty loud.
Stay connected all day with the fast wireless charge of this Google Pixel 3 smartphone. Its wide-angle front camera and 64GB of storage let you capture and preserve memorable selfies, while Google Lens harnesses image recognition to identify objects as you see them.
This Google Pixel 3 screens your calls for spam, so you won’t be interrupted by nuisance calls.
The Google Pixel 3 is a reminder of what kind of value we used to get for our money when buying a phone. as little as 2 years ago. I bought it used/refurbished for $210 (with a 2-year warranty covering parts and labor) which is what a phone should cost, not these ridiculous $1,200 flagship phones that are designed to solve nonexistent problems.
Yeah I can’t experience the full color palette of the movie Coco in a velvety smooth 120+ frames per second, but I also have an additional $800-1,000 + the cost of chargers and new earbuds sitting in my back pocket which is a tradeoff I’ll take.
Speaking of headphones, not only did this come with an actual charger, it came with a FREE PAIR OF HEADPHONES. And not some rinky dink headphones – these are the criminally underrated wired google pixel buds.
The sound is great and the ‘cord as a stabilizing loop’ is comfortable and a brilliant use of engineering. As far as the phone itself, battery life isn’t great but it’s more than enough to never be an issue charging intermittently in my car, at my desk at work, etc.
The photos this camera produces are way better than they have any right to be. Google’s AI photo processing is leaps and bounds beyond anything else out there today and my photos aren’t world class but they look great even compared with modern flagship phones.
If you can tell the difference you’re either zoomed in 20x, a professional photographer, or full of it. Every phone I’ve owned since 2011 has essentially the same specs: 8 core processor, 2-4 GB of ram, few hundred GB of memory/storage, and 1-2 days battery life.
Price I paid for those phones ranges from $750 (Huwaei Nexus 6p new) to $200 (pixel 2 I used to own and pixel 3 I have now). From a user perspective, I can’t tell a single difference between any of the last 5 phones I’ve owned (the 2 not mentioned were a droid razr back in 2011/2012 and an LG V4 or something) except that now I’m not getting taken to the cleaners every time the battery life goes down the drain due to planned obsolescence.
Great phone and buying it doesn’t make you feel like Ned Beatty in Deliverance.
The phone is very nice on appearance. It has a very large screen. But I definitely will never get another Google pixel 3 again. I’ve had 2. The first one lasted about a year. I had to use my insurance to get another one bc they declared it a manufacturer defect.
( The insurance would only give me the same phone for free) It randomly plays YouTube without me touching it. The screen will be black and the phone locked and all of a sudden it will pull up YouTube.
It will say a certain time it will die but die 30 minutes to an hour before the time it says. Everytime I try to watch Netflix it has a static line moving across it. It shuts off randomly, it doesn’t tell me everytime I have a text or phone call.
It mutes people while I’m on the phone ( my screen is clean so definitely nothing on my screen causing that. ) Also when my phone alarm goes off it doesn’t always pop up so I can snooze or stop it. I end up having to unlock my phone, go all the way in to the clock settings, scroll to the alarm that’s going off and turn it off.
And the icing on the cake is the latest update!!!! It changed the whole format of my phone so now I have to relearn my whole phone again. It’s so frustrating. I will never get another Google pixel again! I will stick to android.
I was a little concerned that the phone might have annoying scratches on the screen. It did arrive with 2 extremely minor scratches, but I have to look carefully to see them. The battery life has been fully acceptable, much better than the Pixel XL that this phone is replacing.
I purchased a wireless charger that meets the Qi standard, and it works well with the Pixel 3. The Pixel 3 screen is larger than than on my XL, yet the phone itself is significantly smaller. Once I transferred my data from the old phone to the Pixel 3, Google offered an OS upgrade to Android 12.
This being the last OS upgrade the Google will provide for the phone, I installed it. It has some convenient features. Lastly, the Pixel 3 is a recent enough product that I was able to buy an Otterbox case with a belt clip.
Nerdy, I know, but I find it very convenient. Overall, an excellent phone for an excellent price.

I’m been using Google Pixel phones since version 3 and this 6a is a replacement for a Pixel 4 that decided to come unglued. That’s right – unglued. Google it. It’s a thing for the Pixel 4 phones. So I’m really hopeful that 2 years from now this phone will NOT suffer the same fate.
I’m an iPhone user, but my day job requires me to work with Android phones as well so I’m always flipping back and forth and the Pixel is the Android device I always come back to. One of the best features of this phone is that because it is made by Google, it runs pure Android, which means you don’t have to wait for an OEM (cough.
Samsung) to always get the latest versions of Android OS. In the two years I’ve used the Pixel 4 it’s never been more than 14 days behind the latest major version and monthly security patch version. So while Google continues to struggle with getting other OEMs to update the OS on Android this is never a problem with the Pixel phones.
If you need to always be running the latest Android OS like I do for my day job, Pixel phones should definitely be a purchase for you. Being used to the Pixel 4, the 6a’s almost full inch of extra screen space seems tiny on paper but looks amazing in person.
I’m a Fortnite player on Android and have been very impressed with how much better Fornite runs on the 6a compared with the 4 but the larger usable screen space for apps and games is the feature I notice the most.
The pinhole camera took some adjustment to get used to and I do like the fingerprint unlock. The form factor of the 6a is easy to hold for long gaming sessions being slightly more blocky (if that’s even a word) than the 4.
On the software front, Android continues to add innovative and useful features such as the new magic eraser feature for the camera where you can remove unwanted objects quickly as easily from the phone and the adaptive battery and extreme battery saver features do allow you to skip a day or two of remembering to plug the phone in to charge and with Android 13 around the corner, this Beta’s are already available for install on this phone.
Overall this is a solid Android device and so far the build quality is far superior to the previous Pixel devices.
If your phone is less than 2 years old, you may want to skip this as an upgrade. If you’re still rocking a Pixel3 or older, read on. The Pixel 6 series rocks Google’s new Tensor chip, their first attempt at an in house system on a chip (SOC).
While it works, there is definitely an early adopter tax going on. Many features such as the under the screen finger print sensor, live translation, or even system responsiveness are not on par with many other chips.
I found myself often going back to my Pixel 4a when I needed to get tasks done quickly and for my daily driver. Google did release a system update that helped with some of the issues, but I suspect that we won’t be getting full system performance out of the Tensor chip until Android 13 is released.
The phone itself is well built and feels good in the hand. I like not having the indent in the back of the case which means that any case I purchase for the phone no longer needs to have the cutout. Speaking of cutout , I do not like the position of the camera cutout on this phone.
Top center is prime real estate on the screen both in vertical and horizontal mode, and the camera clutters it up. The previous top left corner on the 4 and 5 felt less obtrusive and I found myself forgetting it was there most of the time.
Battery life is great on the Tensor chip, but I wonder how much of that will change once the chip is really unleashed. As it stands, even under moderate to heavy gaming, I was still getting a full day of use out of the phone.
Given that this still only includes an 18W charging port, this is critical, as you’ll likely be plugging this in over night and using the adaptive charge to keep your battery in tip top shape. As far as software/SoC features go, Google is touting magic eraser as their big new gimmick and honestly I wasn’t impressed.
Anyone that has used Photoshop has seen how digital erasing works and I found the results to be the same or less impressive than using a desktop. Unless what you’re erasing is surrounded by a surface with lots of random patterns, such as clouds, the pictures look very obviously edited, something that most desktop apps do better.
I also found that through copying the new photos app apk file to my Pixel 4a, I received the same results, so this is more of a software gimmick than a SoC feature. Speaking of photos, I really did not see an upgrade in visual quality on the 6a vs.
previous Pixel models. Yes, the 6a can do 240fps @ 1080p and 30fps @ 4k in video recording, but the picture quality itself is not much better. Pair this with the same 6GB of RAM as we’ve seen for many years and the fact that Google killed the headphone jack while the 5a retained it while also being water resistant and the used market is looking a lot better than the new market right now.
At the heart of iPhone SE you’ll find the same superpowerful A15 Bionic chip that’s in iPhone 13. A15 Bionic enhances nearly everything you do. Apps load in a flash and feel so fluid. A15 Bionic even powers advanced photography features that make each part of your photo – faces, places, everything – look fabulous.
A highly efficient chip, an enhanced battery, and iOS 15 work together to boost battery life. When you do need to charge, just place iPhone SE on a wireless charger. Or connect a 20W or higher adapter to fast charge from zero to up to 50 percent charge in 30 minutes flat.
From livestreaming to multiplayer gaming to video sharing, 5G really speeds things up. It even makes FaceTime in high definition and SharePlay feel smooth and seamless when you’re on the go. When you don’t need all that speed, iPhone SE shifts into Smart Data mode to preserve battery life.
Having owned the 1st gen SE for five years the battery was shot and I was contemplating replacing it for a while, but I’m glad I waited for the 3rd gen SE to come out – with the same A15 chip as the current flagship iPhone 13, and even the upcoming iPhone 14, it has performance to spare and is future proofed as far as any phone can be.
Apps launch instantly, mobile 4g and 5g speeds match wifi performance (depending on the signal of course). I find battery life to be excellent – after a full day of use (for me that’s at least 3 hours screen time using web, navigation, email, texting, photos/video, a few 10 min calls) I often still have 60% battery left the next morning.
Whilst the LCD screen is small and unfashionable with its bezels, it is adequate for all my daily needs including email, etc. if you know you need a large screen for work or gaming, you’re unlikely to be considering this phone anyway.
For those who prefer a pocket sized phone, the screen is sharp and works well in all lighting conditions except direct bright sunlight where high contrast text is legible, but subtle tones and details in photos are hard to see (I’ve yet to see a screen that works well in such conditions).
It also retains the home button and Touch ID which I appreciate and prefer to Face ID, especially when using banking apps and Apple Pay. The main camera is adequate for most situations and has Apple’s latest image processing so the quality of photos and video is high.
The front camera is of a lower resolution so selfies are not to the same standard. John Lewis sell at the same price as other retailers, but include a 2 year warranty which no one else does so represent excellent value for money.
See my YouTube review for the iPhone SE (2022) by typing: “iPhone SE 5G (2022) Starlight Review: Apple’s Best Budget iPhone!” into the YouTube search. The Positives: • It has the A15 Bionic Chip. The most powerful smartphone chip in the world! • It takes great photos • It is 5G enabled • It has a longer battery life than the previous model • It will be supported with Apple iOS software updates for many years The Negatives: • It is an old design • It has a 7 megapixel camera on the front • There is no night mode • The phone is not as feature rich as the iPhone 13 models The Design The design of the SE is the same as the iPhone 8, a phone that was released almost 5 years ago.
By today’s standards this is old, but old doesn’t necessarily mean bad as the SE is lightweight, comfortable to use and easy to carry on your person. The Camera The camera lenses/sensors are the same as the previous SE from 2020.
There is a 12 megapixel lens on the back and a 7 megapixel lens on the front. However, although these are the same as the previous model the images this phone takes are fantastic, thanks (in part) to the SE’s new image processing.
For more information see my video review. The Performance! The new SE includes the latest A15 Bionic chip, the most powerful smartphone chip in the world. The Battery The battery should comfortably last over a day with medium use thanks to the larger battery and power efficiency of the A15 Bionic chip.
5G 5G is another big plus for this phone, but it’s only useful if: a) You are in a 5G enabled area b) Have a good data (SIM) plan For the price the iPhone SE (2022) this is the most powerful phone you can get, a phone which will last many years to come.
iPhone SE 2022 Review I felt compelled to write this review after I had read so many other reviews before making this purchase. And I think this little powerhouse of a phone deserves it. I have just spent a year with the IPhone 13.
But moved to this phone. The iPhone SE 2022 is quite literally punching above its weight. With the same A15 Bionic CPU that is found in Apple’s flagship model (13 Pro), extended battery life, 5G network capabilities and the option of larger memory size.
This mobile really stands up for itself. One thing I’ve read so much about from trusted reviews and other comments is the criticism of the form factor / screen size. For me, the size of this was one of the MAIN reasons to get this phone.
I don’t want a huge, heavy phone in my pocket. The 4. 7″ is in my opinion just perfect, and with the iPhone SE you hardly notice it at all. Its easy to hold and use and very light. It also uses Touch ID which I actually prefer than FaceID as it’s quicker and more convenient.
It was a shame to hear that this could be the last time Apple support this smaller size and are moving the next SE to a larger screen, another reason why I wanted to get this version before they do. This phone for me is perfect in every way, and if you are able to, I would go for the larger 256GB memory size to really future proof this device.

I would not recommend purchasing this phone or staying with Tracfone, especially if you live in a rural or any area serviced only by AT&T. Besides having some of the problems described in the other 1 & 2 star reviews here (Repeated Booting, Checkerboard Screens, etc.
), Tracfone was not able to activate this phone with our old TracFone telephone number that we have used for the last 5 years in our rural Texas area covered only by AT&T! The only reason I purchased this phone from TracFone was to replace our old TracFone LG51A which had started texting messages that it would not work after 2/22/2022! After spending over two weeks constantly phoning and chatting with Tracfone Customer Service Representatives (CSR’s) often giving conflicting and/or confusing advice, I had to return this phone (Samsung Galaxy A32).
Currently, I can’t use even my old Tracfone because they say they couldn’t reactivate it due to the phone number being a Verizon phone number???? Yes, the very same Tracfone phone number that has been working in an AT&T only coverage area for the past 5 years????? So now I’m without Tracfone Service, even though I paid around $125.
00 for an annual plan that was supposed to last to July 2022. The final straw was when talking with the last Tracfone CSR. The CSR said they could activate the Galaxy A32, but I would have to get a new phone number, however my current annual plan and minutes would not be carried over! I would also then have to purchase another Tracfone plan! I’ve been a Tracfone customer for over 20 years and never had any problems.
This phone feels about right — nice screen, perfect size and decent camera. I’ve had S series and note series Samsung phones in the past but this time I wanted to give one of their A series a go and liked the clean lines of the A32.
AMOLED is important and so too regular updates but equally important is smooth operation and this is the one area where I think Samsung cheaped out a bit. The G80 is by no means a bad chip but it would have only cost Samsung a few dollars more to have used a Dimensity SOC and this phone would have been almost perfect for the money.
I am not devastated by the use of the G80 as it performs very well under most circumstances but with other manufactures using better silicon in cheaper phones I do wonder if this was a missed opportunity.
Regardless, I love the phone and have no regrets buying it. I bout the official Samsung S-View wallet case for it and it looks superb. There are some better value phones out there for the money but at the end of the day they are not Samsung and they certainly won’t be receiving the updates Samsung is promising for this device.
I purchased a Galaxy A32 after my Pixel 3 stopped charging in Aug ’21. Every day I have owned this phone it has found a new way to irritate and vex me. -Fingerprint sensor is horrible. No, really, Samsung should be ashamed of this sensor, it is really, really bad.
-WiFi drops for no apparent reason. At first, I thought it was a weak signal issue but no, I can be standing right next to a wifi AP and the good old A32 will just drop the wifi connection and complain it will reconnect when “signal quality improves.
” Never had this issue with any Pixel or iPhone I’ve owned. -Caller volume on phone calls is a joke. I have excellent hearing but understanding what a caller is saying to me on the A32 is almost always impossible (unless I’m in a room that is dead silent).
As a result, I have to put most of my calls on speaker and I end up looking like a tool to anyone around me. -GPS is also horrible. I’m an avid cyclist and use the Ride With GPS app quite a bit. It was absolutely fine on my Pixel and iPhones but of course, the A32 drops the GPS signal during a ride for no apparent reason.
It also has the same connection dropped issues with Google maps when driving. – Phone randomly reboots. I first i thought it was performing OS updates but the reboots occur so often (once or twice a week) that I’m fairly certain that is not the case.
I don’t know what this crazy phone is doing. I’m going limp along with this Galaxy A32 for a few more months because I really don’t want to spend any more money. But I will be in the market for a new phone come the holidays.

Reviews From Real Customers
I got this for my 3 year old and every kid including the 10 year old has played with it. It’s easy for little fingers to push the buttons, lights up and bluey talks to them. Makes the younger ones feel like they are really talking to her.
They’ve had hours of fun just playing with this little phone. Each of them loves watching Bluey, so they play things like the grannies and use the phone like Bluey is calling them. Any child who can press a button will love this phone, it talks lights up and has a little screen that shows Bluey.
More fun for the younger ones, but the older ones will have to check it out as well.
This is the cutest phone. Its bluey. It has a digital screen so it shows bluey and bingo. And whoever u call it shows their pictures too. Mum, dad, snickers chloey, bingo, and bluey. Its adorable. My son is only 17 months but he loves it.
My 7 yr old is also entertained by it. She loves playing with her brother with it and showing him different things.
This VTech Bluey Ring Ring phone is adorable, entertaining, fun, and best of all provides hours of creative play! My daughter loves Bluey and she now has the ability to talk to her favorite Bluey characters (Chili), play games, and even dance around to music is phenomenal.
The buttons are sensitive to touch for a toddler, the volume is not too loud, the screen is a good size to see for small children, and the games are entertaining for kids! Overall, this Ring Ring phone is engaging, creative, and exciting for kids!.
Our first Mini Pack for your Game of Phones collection! The Offline Pack contains 50 cards for when you don’t have an internet connection. Play while camping or at a cabin in the woods, on a flight, in another country with no wifi, or with that friend that needs to conserve data.
Respond to challenges by finding things like messages or photos on your smartphone, or taking selfies with the camera. Combine it with other Game of Phones packs, or play it on its own.
Overall, this is a fun game that teens have fun playing with their friends. It’s also a good one for family game nights. The camera roll challenges are the most enjoyable. The reason I only gave it three stars is because there are a few inappropriate cards like “Text a selfie to a random phone number.
” Absolutely not. This is cell phone safety 101. I urge the makers to review the content and permanently remove anything that encourages texting random numbers and/or some of the cards relating to social media.
I bought Game of Phones as Christmas presents both for my small family of 3, as well as for my brother’s family of 8 this year. Both families have older children in their teens, and both families love playing games, so I had a feeling this would be be big hit with the kids and adults alike, and I was absolutely right! I liked that it had a hint of Apples to Apples feel to it and was faced paced.
The game seems to play easier and keeps interest longer more with a larger group – 5 or more – but it is fun regardless. A fun, engaging way to interact with your teen kids! A big win! #sweepstakes.
My sister and I had an absolute BLAST playing this during this Covid-19 isolation period. Even though there is a fairly large age gap between us, we both really enjoyed playing this together. And because it was fun without being vulgar (like a lot of games currently on the market), we plan on playing it again in the future as a whole family.
Would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone, especially parents looking for a gift for their college-aged children, since it does NOT push alcohol consumption. Good clean fun for the whole family:).

I bought this phone primarily to view stereo (3-D) photos through a magnifying viewer. Ordinary phones, including iPhones, Galaxy phones, etc. have screens that look great until you magnify them, but when viewed through a View-Vaster magnifying system the images look grainy.
The Sony Xperia Z5 phone has an awesome 2160 x 3840 pixel display (806 ppi) that even when magnified displays my photos in high definition. I don’t really know about the battery life because I just got the phone, and the form factor is slightly larger than my old Galaxy 5 and slightly smaller than my new Pixel 6.
The phone I bought was new old stock (NOS) with a Japanese version of Android but with English text. I’d upgrade the operating system if I was going to use it as a phone, but it’s fine for looking at pictures.
Very well made and smart looking phone. Excellent camera and storage. I am very happy with the screen quality. Moves around my apps and the Internet very fast. Battery life seems good when just used as a communications device.
But when using all my apps etc and media I am afraid it can get drained quite quickly. Q.
Sony have improved the Xperia design with each version. The Z5 internals are less fussy than the Z3 with the exception of one screw under a flexi, the layout is sweet. Circuit board has the antenna coax held captive on the single PCB which means you don’t need to pop the Hirose type connector every time you take it apart.
Weak point is the 3. 5mm headphone jack socket. Spring pins get flattened with use leading eventually to the headphone not being detected. Fix requires disassembly and new $4 part fitted. Phone for everyday use requires at least a gell cover as the glass front and back make it as slippery to hold as a live Mackrel.
Indulge in 6. 5 inches¹ of mesmerizing entertainment on the very best of the Galaxy A Series, A53 5G. ² Experience an FHD+ Super AMOLED screen for a crystal-clear view, stereo speakers for a surround-sound feel and a long-lasting battery for streaming your favorite content.
Plus, keeping up with your people is virtually lag-free. Everything you love, all in one.
I bought this A53 in early April, and already it has come out with several software updates. I am extremely pleased with Samsung adopting a longevity policy for continued updates, which will make this phone very practical well into 2026.
The A53 is only around three inches across, so very comfortable in smaller hands like mine. I bought the A53, my first Samsung mid-range device, instead of flagships, and will never go back to a Samsung flagship, after eight years of having used them, unless they reincorporate the SD card slot.
This is a must-have for all my media. The dual speakers on this smaller and cheaper device are better than those on the flagship. You get a resonance that is wonderful to hear when streaming. It is very handy on this device, as with later Samsung devices, to have all the hard buttons on the right side of the device.
This prevents one from accidentally invoking another feature, such as Bixby, when grasping the phone. You will see lots of reviews discussing the camera features, which I use, but I am going to talk about accessibility features, since hardly any review features these.
I use the TalkBack screen reader with the device, and Samsung’s TalkBack has come a long way since its troubling debut early last year. They have already come out with an updated TalkBack version on the heels of Google’s latest iteration, and now, I find no difference in performance, although Google’s version 12.
2 has a couple extra features, such as an image recognition feature and eliminating volume buttons slider control, substituting with an up or down scroll finger swipe. As of a couple days ago, the Samsung TTS version is on a parr with the flagships, a request I first put in when I got my A53.
I learned that these updates come sllightly later to mid-range phones, such as the A53. The only other change I would make to the phone is to increase the haptic intensity, but certainly not a deal breaker, just a preference.
To a sighted person, tactile haptic feedback is like visual screen intensity. The phone functions quickly and efficiently, and is a great work horse. I like a phone to do what I want it to do, when I want it to.
I have over 100 apps on my phone and operate out of the apps tray, as I have it organized alphabetically, and don’t allow app additions to my home screen. I use the home screen as a landing page for my time and weather widget, and let the phone do the organizing for me which has saved me countless hours deciding about and organizing home screens.
In summary, unless you have to have a flagship, or prefer the bigger screen, you will be pleasantly surprised with the A53 and glad of the purchase. Should Samsung take away any more features, other than the SD card slot from their mid-ranger or budget phones, Samsung and I will part company after eight years.
I bought the A53 5G knowing it had the Samsung Exynos processor and it is good. Samsung’s battery optimization software helps protect, prolong and improve the endurance of the battery. With battery saver, the battery capped at 85% charge, and other optimizations made by the phone, I am getting a full day’s use without a problem.
By capping the battery to 85%, it reduces the degradation of the battery’s capacity and sometimes (in one study) improves the capacity over time. Performance is great, the screen is beautiful with 120hz and 60hz, I rarely use 120hz because Youtube video(s) are capped at 60hz and gaming doesnt go beyond 60fps, so the 120hz only helps when scrolling or reading the news, so I turn it off most of the time.
If you are not gaming, Battery Saver caps the CPU speed of the phone to 70% and it works great even during gaming, and it prolongs the phone’s battery even longer. If you are just reading the news, watching videos, or shopping online there is no need to use 100% of the CPU speed, and it increases the battery life even longer.
Fast charging works with a Samsung Fast charger, I am getting less than 40mins from 20% to 85%, and that is enough for the entire day for me. I try to keep the battery between 20% and 85%. It would probably go to 100% if I turned off the battery protect feature as the charging slows down as it hits the cap that is set (85% or 100%).
In terms of performance, Samsung has made numerous updates to the phone and the performance has improved, it is best to give Samsung more time to improve the Exynos processors and software to make it great over-time.
The camera is excellent, with the NPU (Neutral Processing Unit/AI-Machine Learning), it is able to capture photos with great quality, colour and edit them to make imperfections better. For the price, the A53 5G gives you the 5G features most people need, the camera, the performance, and the battery life for a price that is reasonable.
You buy this phone because of the above features and the long-term support of 5 years of security updates and 4 years of major OS updates.
First, this is a mid-range phone. Samsung made a name for itself by building awesome phones at reasonable prices. Now you can easily spend over $1,000 for one of their more premium phones. I’m not sure any mobile phone deserves that high a price tag.
Theree was a period Samsung swung to knock it out of the park every time they introduced a new phone. Here they hit about a double. They have created the perfect mid-range cell phone for Purgatory. Everything is just ok here.
and there is the problem. Nothing about it stands out, is groundbreaking, or memorable. People’s phones are very personal items and there’s just no look, feature, feeling, or theme with this phone. The specs on paper indicate it should be a beast.
I got the 128 GB version with 6 GB RAM. Storage is expandable up to 1 TB by adding an SD card. You can also add an additional 6GB of virtual RAM on the memory card you add. and yet, I can still tell no difference.
It is powered by Samsung’s own 1280 Exynos octa-core processor, which isn’t going to break any speed records but gets the job done. It is a little laggy at times, and one wonders how much better this phone would be if something, ANYTHING, stood out about it.
Only the heavy gamer need avoid this phone. It has NFC, comes with Android 12, and Samsung guarantees 4 operating system upgrades and 5 years of security patches. I wanted to give this phone 5 stars, but I just can’t for the following reasons: 1.
) It feels cheap and I’m not just talking about the plastic case all around it. Even with a Super AMOLED 120 Hz screen, nothing seems zippy or fluid. Pictures are adequate, but nothing on the screen is vivid, even when I have the vivid setting on.
Some of this was improved by working with the settings and putting it in a less bulky case and a screen protector on it. I suggest you do the same, because if you want all those years of updates and security patches you gotta protect the phone.
2. ) There is no wireless charging. 3. ) Samsung includes so much bloatware and some of its own things like the Galaxy Store that just wants to copy the Google Play store. Some of it you can remove, and some you can’t.
I’d have less of a problem with them doing this if it produced something more like Material You as featured on the Pixel phone, but instead these things just come off looking like a cheap imitation of all things Google.
Which again brings me back to nothing standing out about this phone. Samsung doesn’t seem to get that people don’t want to flock to their other services and products, because they are just as tepid as this phone.
That being said, it comes with a lot of other great specs and features such as ip67 dust and water resistance, Gorilla Glass 5, and decent cameras. Overall, I’d recommend it as a buy. but read all the detailed specs first to make sure this is the phone for you.
It can take a rather long time to get into all its settings and adjust them to make the phone more to your liking. I’m also hoping when Android 13 and Samsung’s UI 5 update it puts a little more pep in the step of the A53 5g.
