6.5 is a very satisfying size. Trust me on that.
I like the LG G7 deal, only problem it's AliExpress. Loved my LG G2.
@MrSwitch Are LG phones worth looking at? So much choice these days. They are excellent value

easily pleased.
This, or a P30?
Anyone know what the Ram is?
Never heard about this brand. Will better skip this time
Oh boy another one! Is it better than the redmi 8t?

No mate
This, or Xiaomi Redmi Note 8T?
I like Oppo phones. From what I've seen the hardware specs are good value for money. It's a huge company and manufactures lots of electrical equipment (not ice cream ). It's the parent company of OnePlus,
Oppo is now trying hard to break into the European and North American markets. Seem like the strategy is to mostly leave top end to OnePlus and Oppo to get the middle and lower ends and fill the hole that might be left by the Huawei-Trump fiasco. Realme is another Oppo Electronics sub-brand. Not quite sure where that fits in.
At the moment I'm using an Oppo Reno2 z and really feel I've got value for money. ColorOS can be a bit annoying but it's improved a lot last couple of years and many would ague it's a lot less annoying than MIUI.
Is it going to be locked to o2?

Anyone who has this phone can confirm if it has 3 slots (2 for sim and 1 for micro sd)?

Unlocked these are
The note 8T is a mere £10 more and smashes this

The realme 5 pro is also £10 more and has a snapdragon 712, 4/128 and a 1080p display

720p on a screen this size, mind you it should lead to the battery lasting forever.
I use to like COS, but that was a good few years back and it was a custom version by a dev for the OPO.

Miui is better, a lot better and there really isn't anything annoying about it.
Its feature rich, frugal and fast, it's also the most ported Oem OS on the developer scene. That speaks volumes about its versitlity.

That was CyanogenMod on the OPO , but colorOS was still used on OPPO back in 2014 but it was alot different to now

Screen is only acceptable to an iPhone user. Android users now expect 1080p at this mid range price point. In fact y8u mightvas well pay £30 more and get the more high end and all rounder, the Samsung M30s. FHD SamOLED and 2 to 3 day battery life wins it.

Have you used the m30s? And really got that amount of longevity out of one charge?

Gets 130 hours battery test life at gsmarena. The 3 day battery Motorola G7 Power, an alternative to this gets 147 hours.

That tells you a hell of a lot imo. That says to me that Samsung optimisations are useless, and a 6000mAh can't do better than an 5000mAh phone (albeit with a worse display and worse processor)
It is Amoled. On standard battery tests, and on none video, the screen can use double the battery power without screen optimisation. And 130 hours is still very good. The Galaxy S10e with a newer chipset gets 83 hours
