It's true, iPhone does not have that stupid curved edge stuff nor 18:9 ratio.
google pixel 2, LG and Samsung all jumped on the curved screen bandwagon and 18:9.

Nothing uses 18:9. Nothing scales well to it. I only got my S8+ due to the Black friday sale, got it for about $460, was that a good deal. They even broke into monthly payments which was the icing on the cake. The only requirement was Verizon unlimited plan --- which I already had anyway. I certainly wouldn't pay anything like $800 for it.

I really like ZeroLemon extended batteries. The phone slides into one and you the internal 3400 mAh battery plus about 8500 mAh external one. I can get it to run for 2 days in that configuration.

Not sure.  I've always had LG phones they are nice. I ended up with S8 Plus and do not like it.

Not the curved edge. Not the st00pid 18:9 ratio. V30 is the same thing.

I am going to say screw it and get the LG V20, the phone I really like.

Let's see. No curved edge. 
Removable 10,000 mAh battery by ZeroLemon.
16:9 ratio that is just great.

control and home, I still don't get exactly what these shortcuts are supposed to be doing..
All in all, all linux based systems are kind of user friendly with all the aliases you can set and the cron jobs and the shortcuts and text processing.. but at times they fail abysmally.

The thing that really makes me boil is the user interface in my android device. Things are buried way deep in it. Asia's finest.

My 2013 LG Optimus G Pro was way ahead of 2017 Note 8. Simple and had everything I needed.

It seems like they things of way to really screw things ups.

This reminds of the days when I ran mwm, then twm and finally fvwm (feeble virtual window manager). 

Now that was some cool stuff. Not yet surpassed by anything today.  I saw modern interfaces, how overly complicated they are.

I wouldn't mind cryptocurrencies if I could get assurance that a supercomputer running somewhere underground could not devalue the whole thing.  the whole "mining" thing is stupid as hell. Why the hell for? It expands the currency base and devalues *everyone's* investment in it. That's what the current central bank is doing. Printing. Instead of one location, you have a million and 1 small investors devaluing the thing. 

I think this devaluation is masked by these huge waves, up and down. But it's going on.  So if you mine a bitcoin, where do you think the value comes from???

at the expensive of everyone else.

I am amazed they cannot standardize on Linux and come up with something really idiot-proof.

Then there is that shut10 app I installed -- saw it on this very forum.  I think it has that option, to turn off updates.
