New phone, who dis? Shiny Puppy (Element of Fleas)Country code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 42119624

I got a new phone, a Galaxy A20, because I'm cheap and it does what it needs to do. I had a J7 before this, so it's a substantial upgrade while not costing more than I can build a PC for. Still trying to get all my settings working for notifications, etc. Smart Switch was helpful, but not perfect.

One thing though, it's Android 9 and I cannot figure out how to turn off the battery full notification. I'm not that dumb, I can see the lightning bolt disappeared from the other icon. Any help would be appreciated.

<Phone thread I guess.

I have a Galaxy S9. It just had to do a mandatory update that arbitrarily changed shit in the UI in pretty annoying ways, so I'm not very happy about that. The volume buttons are also kinda messed up. A lot of times when I press the up button just once, it acts like I held it down and shoots all the way up to full volume. Other times it doesn't do anything.
I had to remove my screen protector too, because it got water under it and that messed up the touchscreen.

UI changes in general are the bane of my existence. If I had my way all Windows versions would look and function like 2000 Pro did. I shouldn't have to download 3rd party software to not make a start menu look like it belongs on a children's tablet. I mean they're just icons, let me do whatever I want and give me the 'I fucked up' notification bar reset option.

Oof about the screen protector business. My phones are cheap enough that my protector is literally just a 2mil plastic sheet, so pulling it off and on isn't so awful, aside from trying to avoid bubbles. Or if you get a rain drop touching the wrong spot that everything just freaks out.

The screen protector for my phone literally had to be lightly glued on when I got it.

Every part of that seems horrible. Like it you needed to replace the screen protector it was be the cost of a new protector as well as the screen the protector itself destroyed.

I need a new phine by the 16th because im switching carriers.
The A20 is one im looking at along with the motog 7 power and the moto z play.

They are all about in the same price range, but the power has a 5000mah batt and the z play has mods, but samsung makes a really solid product.
Decisions...

I want to upgrade mainly because my S9's battery life is trash, but I've been looking at the S10s and higher and them shits get into the $1,000+ range and it's just like...ehhh...

I miss older smart phones like the earlier iPhones just for their small size. They fit so comfortably in your pocked and hand. It's like practical.

Like most things in life, you can blame stupid for creating a demand. Similar to why 4K screens on a phone are somehow a thing you'd want. My phone isn't terribly large but could be smaller and I wouldn't feel I'm missing out. I'm not big into that social media nonsense, so maybe I'm just not the target demographic. My phone is YouTube, Pokemon Go, Netflix, and Telegram. None of which are in 4K.

I know that feel. Also I really dislike how account and monoculture driven smart phones are. I blame marketers and the phone companies giving good credit schemes so the true price of the phones are hidden from the mind of the average buyer.
