Anonymous, 30 Apr 2020Widgets are just one of most useless of android of all times.acctualy most important thing for many users ...
I dont need to open app to see calendar events - list throug them, month overview/week overview, list of emails, weather forecast, notes, ... use some app funkcion directly from screen - start some event, stop it, without actualy opening the app itself
this is where apple is behind with ios on Iphones or Tablets. Other things are being closer and closer with newer versions, but in many basic things is iOs behind Android, still doesnt have basic functionality of phones before iphone. Android phones had it from the begining

Bring it on, I say.

Research conduct by the Signals Research Group has shown that 5G's power advantages and disadvantages don't matter much, since other elements of phone usage, particularly the backlight, have much larger impacts on battery life than the cellular chip.

Yes indeed - Samsung's finest is the Exynos. Right, sure it is man.

It would be appreciative if you could share the links to the reviews that have conducted a thorough sound quality analysis of the OnePlus 8 phones.
Akash ZINTA, 30 Apr 2020I have started to doubt the GSM areans battery testing procedure now...almost all the battery... moreI agree, have to.
I have been reading GSMarena articles since 2001 regularly. Though battery endurance part has been introduced much later, I always had/have to take the endurances with a pinch of salt due to my experience.
If in GSMarena's review, the total battery endurance of device A is higher(or significantly higher) than device B, we generally can think that if anyone buys those two devices, based on the same person's usage pattern and similar settings(as much as possible) and same apps installed on both devices, the overall endurance of device A should be greater than B or atleast similar bcoz GSMarena "said so".
In most smartphones in my usage, this has never been this case. In fact, several times, I found way more battery endurances of device B than A on similar usage pattern, apps installed and similar settings.

Not yet, but OnePlus are expected to introduce this feature at some point soon.
Should you be in desperation for 'Glance Screen', you can have this poached feature, originally from Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile years ago, right now should you be willing to purchase my exquisite pristine Lumia 950 XL.
'Glance Screen' is the Nokia/Microsoft Lumia name for what is otherwise known as 'always-on display'.

Nightmare101, 29 Apr 2020Seriously, where is the speaker and audio tests section? The folks at GSMarena are evidently not connoisseurs of sound.
At any rate, I'm not interested in subjective sound quality (because to a degree we all think we are somehow audiophile experts), but rather seek a professional take on the sound output, often requiring the use of an anechoic chamber.
Anonymous, 29 Apr 202090% if android features are just useless so.Quote, "90% if android features are just useless so."
Therefore the remaining 10% of Android featured are useful - if not vital. These features include, the rampant data-shafting of users' data and propagating ads left, right, and centre onto display.
For these two features are the lifeblood of Android.
Quote, 'Still cursed with last year's US-Huawei ban, the brand makes a compelling phone that can't be used with Google Services - which could be a deal breaker for many consumers in Western markets."
The converse is actually true. The sanctions imposed by Trump on Huawei have allowed their phones to be positively discriminated from amongst the plethora of similar and often undistinguishable Android phones. The benefit of being devoid of Google apps and GMS (Google Mobile Services) allow for zero data-harvesting from Google.
Thus there are only advantages to be secluded from the long reach of Google. App downloads may still be performed directly from the Play Store via a browser with a bit of know-how, without needing the Play Store or Play Services big-brother apps.
The only problem with Huawei's phones is that the bootloader is locked - and that's no trivial issue.
For that reason, the OnePlus 8 Pro puts itself in contention as one of the most noteworthy phone available in 2020 (Samsung's Galaxy S20 Series fails to inspire outside of US/South Korea with its Exynos SoC, thereby deselecting itself from the must-haves in 2020).

Your review is without speakers' test. Please include it.
Moreover, the benchmarks stand in favour of OnePlus 8, though have not included in here, but in OnePlus 8's review there are all these benchmarks.
Pretty much hurried and raw review.

As S20 + uses exynos 990 compared to snapdragon 865. But if you don't care about 5g then go oneplus 7t or oneplus 7 pro either chip set still beat exynos 990.
