My is beginning to show its age, and now I'm stuck trying to find a relatively new Android phone that is actively supported for .

It is...difficult and slow going so far

@null0x0 never heard of this brand, but the family of devices looks promising! thanks :D

@evanskaufman have you looked at pixel 2? You might get good deal on them used.

@SciencePhysicist @evanskaufman I use OnePlus 3T it's Ok for my use case. I am on Stock rom as many "Banking" apps hate custom ROMS. It's my primary phone so I don't play as much. I have Galaxy Grand Duos which runs on Lineage OS 11 and I maintain the builds for that device i.e. build it locally on my server.

@SciencePhysicist @evanskaufman btw I agree 👍 it's great device if you want Custome ROMs

I wanted a 6T but the place I ordered it from was like "oops we're out of stock". meanwhile the north american oneplus website has been out of stock of practically all its phones for weeks.
@evanskaufman @null0x0

@georgia That sucks! I can't afford a better phone at the moment, so I will stick with it. The battery is deteriorating which I think is degrading the performance.

@georgia @null0x0 @evanskaufman I just got my wife a 6T a few weeks ago. Didn't have any problems with stock. That said oneplus isn't sold officially here so I was buying from an importer

@SciencePhysicist @georgia @evanskaufman thankfully they have a good presence here and are fairly successful, it will be easy to find good deal after few months.

nice, yeah I considered ordering from the Indian site which is well stocked. its their biggest presence outside China.

@georgia @null0x0 @SciencePhysicist @evanskaufman
my new phone got delayed because of the corona crisis I pray you won't have to suffer as I do

@georgia @SciencePhysicist @evanskaufman

The problem with importing stuff to India is that we have the worst customs on the planet. No updates, packages are kept for days before they intimate you and sometimes they loose the package magically.

the oneplus 7 pro is the best phone of 2019 and supported by lineage

@georgia Yes! I might get it second hand some day lol :)

@georgia In India its easy for me to just look for local deals. I know the website. It used to be advertised a lot on XDA when they launched it.

oh so THATS why they let you log in with an XDA dev account

@georgia yeah hah! It was made default marketplace for XDA in 2013.
