iFixit: We’re Ending Our Samsung Collaboration
  • Leaked documents from Samsung

    What logic does Samsung think that it's a good idea to destroy an entire phone just because of it using a third party part.

  • To my fellow Android custom ROM enthusiasts, I highly advise you uninstall and stop supporting @projectelixiros
  • No not really. Maybe the early access is paywalled. But that's usually it.

  • To my fellow Android custom ROM enthusiasts, I highly advise you uninstall and stop supporting @projectelixiros

    context: the devs of Project Elixir have paid features in their ROM. If you try to bypass it , they will wipe your internal data and esim EDIT: the devs response

  • Honestly they don't have to lower the price. If they just opened up the software I would make the jump.

    Sony already does this and doesn't do the stupid camera drm anymore now.

  • Sony will do the bare minimum that they are forced to. So 5 years due to the EU. Repairability idk about that. Parts are hard to source outside of Asia for Xperia phones.

    I wonder if the r9 pro will get the 8g3. Since technically the r9 has a downgraded chip from the R8

    Xperia announcenment launch May 15th 2024
    • The naming is dreadful. What comes after the Xperia 1? Why the Xperia 1 II of course! I swear only their console division is capable of clear and sensible naming.

    Their phone division is run by their camera division and unfortunately the naming makes sense in that situation

    • They've fallen seriously behind in software support. This will be mitigated by EU legislation forcing longer support, but it'll still be behind Samsung/Google.

    I think only Samsung and Google are doing 7 years of updates. Plus fun fact Sony releases Asop builds of newer versions of android 3 years after eol. But for some reason they won't extend updates for their gms roms

  • I hope they improve the amp for the jack at least.

  • Pinging a few people who are among the usual posters
  • No it did. I'm just confused about what this community is.
