I've got a USB C thumb drive that rotates around into a USB A. Transfers files quite fast and reliably. It would be awkward to leave in 24/7, but it certainly comes in handy and works well with my Nexus 6P, Pixel C, Chromebook Pixel, and should work well with my Pixel XL 2 once it arrives.
Did DCI-P3 make much different compare normal color screen like RGB? Explain please? Because I still cant understand
What happens to cloud storage after the time period expires (3 years it seems)? Do you have to pay Google for monthly storage after that (like you do with the free Google account that you have for gmail/blog/photos/etc if it goes above the free limit)? Does anyone know if Google gives free storage for LIFETIME during the period it advertises as free?
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2017It's worth bringing up the sd card , sure cloud is fine for the odd happy snap , However... moreSure its not as easy as ejecting an sd card but it does have usb 3.1 and it's not like most people leave everything on the sd card so transfering from the phone to a hardrive takes the same amount of time. Plus if your taking enough 4k video in a day to fill 20+ gb i don't think a phone is what you want.

AnonD-706428, 08 Oct 2017Well Google phones never had micro SD cards so i don't know why even bring it up. Plus unlimit... moreIt's worth bringing up the sd card , sure cloud is fine for the odd happy snap ,
However if you take 4k videos for any length of time , the files can be large , and should you want to transfer those files quickly from one device to another , cloud just does not cut the mustard .
If there is a huge fail the only one is iPhone 8 8 plus 3 years the same look.
AnonD-706428, 08 Oct 2017i have had an SD card fail on me so i would most likely call cloud storage safer.
I think you... moreIt seems easier to back up using OTG in the end. Cloud backup heavily relies on your broadband speed, and presence of wi-fi router nearby. Both of these are not always found in typical household.
Also you may need storage to save other media not just photos. Music files for example, which should be available locally at all times. Having local external storage is always an advantage.
With the amount of SD cards produced, it's no wonder some of them would fail, same with hard drives. Still for every broken SD card, at least hundred of perfectly working ones balance the equation.
wqcr, 08 Oct 2017No cream-on-the-top cloud offer EVER beats local storage. Especially on a phone where you pay ... morei have had an SD card fail on me so i would most likely call cloud storage safer.
I think you are missing the point of cloud storage. You don't need to have internet connections all the time. Just back up all your pics when you are on Wi fi and when your device storage is near full you can just delete old pics without worrying what you should keep or not.
And to be honest 128 gb seems more than sufficient for any normal use.
I was looking for a new phone to replace my 4 year old Note 3. As I love the big screen (5,7"), I wanted something as large. I did get OnePlus5 witch is 5,5" and I am loving it. Considered Note 8 and was thinking about Pixel XL2 as well but considering the price difference and that all the new large phones have 18:9 aspect ratio, where the size difference compared to 5.5 is not that pronounced, it is hard to justify the extra cost for the same hardware. Don`t really understand while phablets have dropped the 16:9 ratio. Note 3 was peferct size, easy to type. Note 8 with 6,3 is pretty much the same width as my Oneplus 5, offering no advantage of not getting your thumbs dangled when trying to type really fast. What is the benefit of a very high display, beats me.
For the price, get a OnePlus 5 - a great great phone.
