There - you don't need Sailfish anymore

Also Qi wireless charging! With a catch

what are you saying. IPhone ten is more advance than iPhone 8?

If I got it for the US price it would be a bargin. I don't really want one. But since Jolla refund process is beyond slow I guess I have to live with iPhone for a while.

What's the prices for these phones? $999? Will it have a qwerty slider? Landscape?

Will be confusing with iPhone 9 next year. Maybe they go for iPhone 19.

Edit: WTF? Not even a HW button at a bottom. Boring! I want to go home

I think the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is prettier than the iPhone X. Plus it has a a bigger screen. Camera, among other things, is not as good. But it is cute! But, honestly, there is nothing out there I really want to buy right now. Maybe I'll buy a new guitar instead!

I vote guitar. That's the obvious choice.

second that...for the guitar.
A musical instrument is an ACTUAL investment ...
provides a lifetime of enjoyment and edification..
and has zero depreciation...
only appreciation

Get the guitar ...
Find the time to visit..
Bring an amp.
I got mine...
I don't have an extra handy since the downsizing and move to the island chalet...
I'll grab one of my bigger harps ..



from the time capsule
(..I haven't changed much to look at since...especially after visiting the devil at the crossroads...just my hair going quickly white...red-head so it was a given ...especially with my big Five Oh coming in a 3 months......frankly I pin going white on the paces girls put me through .. )

we'll route the tunes through gtkgep on our nxx0's and through to the amps..
and we'll make a weekend of it mscion.

after all is said and done you would probably still have money left over after the guitar purchase and a weekend on Gabriola Island ...
Rather than a throw away piece of garbage that phones have become....

Well, if I'm ever in the area I'll be sure to stop by!

While I'm still checking out guitars, so not in the market for a phone, I might get the V30 if I was...

http://www.gsmarena.com/lg_v30-8712.php

Based on specs and unlockable bootloader, I would take the V30 over Mi MIx 2. Same size screen, significantly better camera, micro sd slot and FM radio to boot!

Yeah. Good option,

Then you can build something like this with your old tech. Banjo!
