    Just came back from a popular Mall here in Oman. Samsung S7 at at amazing price of 32k 180 Rial
    Looks like the battery issue has done some serious damage to the sales.

    The Moto E 2nd gen has an IPS display.

    Mi4 doesn't have 4G. Mi4i doesn't support VoLTE.

    Anyone got the Samsung J2 2016? I'd like to know your gaming experience. FYI it comes with a Mali GPU. The other areas are fine. Selling it for 9.5k.
    Also played around with some Samsung premium phones and their 5.5". If the phone is properly designed 5.5" will not give such a big trouble. Loved the S7 Edge. :D
    Thinking of the 1+3 non-T. If CES doesn't show anything else. MWC is weeks away.

    For this reason, I keep coming back to my trusted Samsung S4, 4G version which I got from Australia. 5" gorgeous full HD 1080p Amoled display. JIO sim working flawlessly, I use JIO app. S4 has almost non existent side bezels, its very narrow for a 5" phone plus weight distribution of this phone is spot on, feels feather light in my hands. It has only 2GB RAM and still on Lollipop officially, but works amazing after disabling bloatware.

    If it still works then sure why not? The S4 was a good phone. Heard that rooting it and removing the bloatware makes it feel like it was (almost) new. The S4 9500i which I had, its motherboard died so...
