    It's definitely not great. Phone otherwise is fine. But the battery life isn't great at all. Definitely couldn't make it all day and I don't live on my phone.

    I'm on a P3 now so it was time to upgrade. We have two lines in the house and the wife doesn't care to have the newest phone so if this contract thing goes smoothly, I'll just stagger the upgrades each year and give her my hand me downs.

    Gotta love telcos fine print. There is a 30 day refund period for the phone. So if I decide I don't want it I can send it back. The 30 days starts when I buy it, not when its delivered. It's back ordered and won't ship for 6-8 weeks.

    I'm on my 2nd pixel 4. First one made it 4 months until the battery gave up, this one is going strong still at 7 months. I can get a day out of my Battery unless I am on it non stop which is hardly ever. I need at least another year out of this one.

    I got a shitty LG G7 One, its as good today as it was brand new two plus years ago. Battery lasts all day, takes just 20 mins to charge fully, fast enough and still being updated. Been impressed with LG phones, my first one was great two.

    I don't know what's up your ass, or what that means...but pretty sure we are the same age roughly. How about stop being a douche, no wonder RC is down to 5 people

    :werd:


    He's probably thinking less of you now because you didn't immediately hop on the vaccine bandwagon without expressing any concerns or asking any questions. Oh, and you shared some personal rationale. That's a major no no... Guess you're one of us now Wayne. Welcome to the lower echilon of RC.

    If you don't know what it means, why are you assuming he's being a douche? Pretty sure I get what he was throwing down, and it was hardly anything rude or douchie... Douchy?... Douchey?... Douchee?

    I've always been lower echilon RC man, goes back 16 years. I still enjoy hearing other people's opinions on things, I just get annoyed by personal jabs these days, must be the boomer in me.

    You and me both. Been here a long time and in the recent years I feel like no matter what I say I'm gonna get belittled or made fun of. Boomer? Technically I'm a millennial. Born in 84. But being a conservative and asking questions about the vaccine, on RC? I may as well be third class on the freaking titanic.

    WayneWayne - thanks for the laugh. You played your part in this meme perfectly, especially getting angry and not understanding what “ok boomer” means. LOL

    but, Jesus, get a thicker skin. You’re almost as bad as GrifterGrifter. Somehow me joking with you has to do with him being a Conservative wank?

    This website is hilarious.

    :wtf:. I didn't take you joking as anything to do with me. I also didn't take you "joking" as joking. It just came across as your usual holier than though, just being a dick approach.

    Can we hug it out? I don't want to fight today. :lol:

    Bought a couple of Idatastart Remote Starters to install in my buddy's cars.

    Since September I've seen 4 price increases on the exact same unit on Amazon, it's getting ridiculous.

    Time to find a new brand ugh

    Edit - make that 5 increases. They're $289 now from $199 3 months ago wtf :rolleyes:

    Amazon increases prices when things are popular. They'll go down in the spring.

    Ok this Roomba is so worth the crazy money. Goes around and cleans, returns to the dock when full and unloads the dirt to the base depot, and takes off again.
