Lana, 04 Jul 2018Is it good for long term using? For like 3 years ?? depends how you handle mobile without drops and over charging battery. if u take care can easly last 2 to 3 years or even more since mobile handware is strong enough to carry more years.

Lana , 03 Jul 2018Htc u ultra or Samsung A7 ? go with HTC u ultra its a flagship mobile ... A7 is a mid range mobile ...
they are both old phones now, so it comes down to which cost less & which UI you like more.
for those who have noticed the YouTube issues in landscape mode. Version 13.24.59 came out on June 26th and do far the issues I noticed on the older versions seem to be fixed.
Uninstall what ever version you are using before you install this version. And restart your phone after you install this version
Anth0ny, 27 Jun 2018yes, its good for Bluetooth audio once you have a good blue tooth headphone. the corded Usoni... moreVery useful information, this will help me to decide between this phone and the Sony xz1. Thank you very much!!
This is the best and the cheapest high end mobile you could ever get. I bought two 64 gb (250$) versions and one 128 gb version (300 $ ). The 128 gb version is beast in performance though 64 gb is also very good. i have gifted 64 gb version in my family and kept 128 gb version Sapphire crystal glass for me.
Pros : Great display , Very good stereo speakers , slim , not heaver side easy to carry , Good performance , Best head phone you get in box better than current Iphone 8 . Dual SIM , bigger screen . all these in so less price.
cons : NO 3.5 mm jack , no water resistance , Average battery life ( whole day with moderate usage ). thats it.
Aside from my bad comments, this phone isn't bad.
For the $250 dollar I paid, I get a real flagship phone rather than a mid range phone.
This is not some sort of Chinese brand either, it is the HTC.
At the most budget constrain at the time of buying, this one offer most bang for bucks.
It is not perfect. The lack of 3.5mm jack is big issue. It try to compliments with a type c $100 dollar grade noise cancelling in ear earphone, but still cannot simultaneous charging and listening at the same time.
SOT is shy of 4 hours. Apart from that, it is an ok phone.

I don't use the pattern because with wet fingers anyone can tilt your phone to the side and see your pattern in the sweat marks

But normally I will not use it at all, simply wet finger totally make the fingerprint sensor dirty.
I normally just double tap the screen, and unlock the screen with pattern.
Not the fastest way, but more reliable than fingerprint.
As I say, it is my always sweaty finger that may cause the problem, my area is high humidity too.

Probably I shouldn't say the secondary screen not useful.
I should say if the false touch issue is solved whenever I put in my pocket, then it would be very good.
Anth0ny, 28 Jun 2018did you go in your wifi preferences & set "keep wifi on during sleep" to always?Yes, already set to "Always" for "Keep WiFi on during sleep". Issue still happen. Not always disconnected, but do happen sometime.
My router is only the old 2.4Ghz WiFi, wireless N 150mbps, issue may happen on this old WiFi band.
Maybe issue will be gone if connect to 5Ghz WiFi.
I suppose this is some software issue.
Anth0ny, 28 Jun 2018would you say a Samsung S7 is better for a normal user or would it be more annoying?Samsung S7 is not, but Samsung S7 Edge definitely still worth to buy.
Depend on region, mine only comes with 32GB storage, and cost considerably more (almost 50% more expensive), so that's why I don't go with it.
But for normal user, yes, Samsung S7 Edge is more recommended.
There is also Samsung Note FE, and also Oneplus 3T, for around that same pricing.

I like that I can disable popup notifications from social apps and get the notifications on the second screen only. which does not disturb the app im in but I can still see the message. I like that I can have all my communication app icons there for quick app switching without having to press the app switcher button first.
I like that some 3rd music player apps can load their basic play interface on the second screen so you can have some music control without leaving your active app.
