    I'm posting this thread for people to rant about the most annoying things your Android Device has done that Members of Android Forums helped you fix or couldn't fix no matter how big or small the issue was?

    Probably the first thing I posted on here was, why does my phone now fail to connect in file transfer mode when I hook it up to my computer. An Android system update changed the default behaviour to charge only. That's about the most annoying thing my Nexus 5 has done. I think I'm doing ok with it ;)

    My most annoying issue I had was when every time I get a call on my S6 my calls was always on speakerphone and I could not get it to answer in headset mode so every time my old lady call balling me out when im coming home. So people can hear screaming at the top of her lungs before I can get the phone in headset mode. Too bad I couldn't get that phone to work right and now the last I heard it was when my old lady calling and hearing her voice as I was tossing It in the Mississippi River:)

    I think I'd have to go back 7 years (I've been here that long and still don't have a 'get a life' t-shirt? ;) ) and it was learning how to manually update my Nexus One from Eclair to FroYo. Y'know ... the good ol' days. :rolleyes:
     
  5. Drama, drama and more drama. I can't find one Android that I'm happy with, one has what the other lacks, usually for the worse.

    I was happy with Lollipop 5.1. Perfection. A device with 2GB of RAM would do fine, given that you have a 2500+ mAh battery. I personally feel Gaargle ruined everything with doze and optimization starting with MM and all that became of nougat was a facelift.

    Won't go into a full scale bitch over it, but it's become so awful for me that I went back to BlackBerry 10 months ago. I'm selling all of my androids except for my Nexus 5 and 7. I still love tinkering with Androids, I just can't deal with them as a daily driver.

    No drama for me.

    One thing I absolutely hate is how not even one single company (I hope I am wrong!) has not made a single android device that can be "unbrickable" and super hacker friendly... removable internal sd and much more...

    It's disgusting because there should be no excuse for such a pathetic lack of delivery. . .

    I mean seriously... how can these ****ing evil bastard companies be so damn selfish that they can't (don't want to more like it!) even design ONE of their machines to be hacker friendly??

    I kind of loved Archos because they had at least some guts to open their devices.... kind of... however it voids your warranty!

    For goodness sake these bastards won't allow anyone to install anything that they don't "approve of" on "their machines" with tons of vapor ware slowing everything down?

    I think a large majority of these companies need some serious competition and someone needs to open a can of "open sauce / source" XD :D on their pork butts!

    Why can't someone make something that is a mobile platform that is much freer and way more open and truly wants you to do what you want to with YOUR hardware...

    I think it's absolute bull shit and makes me want to now go and buy another phone all together hopefully something that won't be so anal and ridiculous!

    Google claims android is open sauce.... but is it really?

    Why are manufacturers so anal and won't develop a very hacker friendly phone like the Nokia N900???



    Please tell me I am wrong!

    @Stinky Stinky Project Ara from Goggle had exactly what you wanted but they couldn't figure out how to keep the parts together. Drop it anywhere even onto a bed I bet and the components would fly apart.

    He may see the case as a paper bag holding a broken glass, at least all of the pieces are in one place and all in there. :)

    Something like that Phalon4. Pictures I saw did include a snap on back plate.

    @Hadron An inflatable case probably could have solved that issue but who would make the tiny pump?

    @dontpanicbobby Hey you may have just came up with a new invention the first inflatable blow up case. Hmm this may do just as well as the blow up dolls did.;)

    @Phalon4 I doubt it. Blow up dolls were government issued.

    My drama is not with the Android OS so much but with the way the OEMs use it.

    That would be a good debate because most everything that's in Android systems is made by different companies so would that be one of the same at the most?

    The Big 4 are Samsung, HTC, LG and BBK to me. They decide what your hardware can do. The software just gets better and better.

    mikedt 你好

    BBK actually produce OnePlus, Oppo, Vivo and Imoo. Although apparently a few months ago Oppo pulled out of western markets, like US, UK etc. They closed their OppoStyle sales site and distribution, so any Oppos now are probably bought from third-party Chinese vendors and are grey imports.

    The OppoStyle.com has been closed officially.

    Vivo is only China and a few Asia countries, and Imoo I'm pretty sure is only here in China.

    There's one phone that comes to mind, and I've actually still got one, Oppo Find 7. And that from my experience did tick all those boxes. But that was in 2014, and Oppo has changed completely now, many of their current devices can be unrootable, or at least very difficult. I currently have an Oppo R9 Plus, which I've not even bothered trying to root, because for my daily use now in China, a rooted smart-phone wouldn't be too useful to me, because of AliPay, TenPay, app bikes, home delivered meals, booking travel, etc.
