Not too much to ask right?
Which ANDROID phone made within the past year or so has ALL these of features?
Samsung have always been alright for me although some will tell you they're terrible. Just get an S5 Mini
It's also about replacing the battery when it starts to deteriorate.
WTF? Why is it so hard to have a removable battery?
Is it just me or has phone functionality gone to shit with the advances over the past 5 years?
I finally got over how phones no longer have hardware buttons thanks to iCancer's influence.
Now Samsung is influencing companies to make tablets that make phone calls. Fuck.
The colors are adjustable. You just look up the correct color settings and you're set.
Get a tempered glass screen protector or DBrand skin.
There's a fix out for 4.4.4 that doesn't cause loss of functionality.
Not from this year but I have a galaxy note II and it does all of those things, the phablet part is kind of iffy. It works if you have big pockets.
The phone market is 80% fad market and >>45930127. This is proven with the whole phablet deal happening in op's pic and with the new iPhones. May as well grab the old good phones before they all become fashion accessories.

4.7" [spoiler]like your penis[/spoiler]
Amazing camera actually
there is not a single recent smartphone with maximum 4 inch screen and removable battery + sd card
why don't phone companies make those anymore?
I just want a smartphone with
>3.7 inch screen
>dual core is enough
>decent rear camera
>available custom roms
>inb4 take a 6" phone, it's barely larger than a 5.5" which is barely larger than a 5" wich is about the size of a 4.5" wich is not much bigger than a 4"
that's what they all said ;_;
Not a G3 user here but it's practically the same size as S5 with a much larger screen. I personally own a note 3 and i can easily cope with the size of it, while i get all the benefits that you have mentioned.
Also i use the pen on a daily basis so i don't feel like i wasted money for it instead of the G3.
>dat amoled screen
>dat battery life
Although the G3 is better designed then the recycled samesung i kinda got used to having the physical buttons.
Again back to op's topic get a S5 or a G2\G3 or maybe some wangblows phone (735 is pretty neat for the price).
it actually looks quite good
but I'd rather have a phone where I can put custom roms on, so I don't have to use googleapps
I guess I'm forced to use a microsoft account to use the lumia?
Okay saying it sucks is a bit unfair, but it's outdated.
The screen is not anywhere near as good as the current gen SAMOLED (see Note 4).
The SoC is just a higher clocked Snapdragon 800. The GPU in the 805 is much better and the 810 seems like it will blow everything out the water in every single way.
The camera is good but lacks OIS, and it's not top of the line anymore.
The speaker isn't that great.
Only 2GB of RAM when 3GB would improve performance.
A lot of the gimmicks don't work that well (finger print scanner for example).
16GB phones need to die. 32GB should have been the minimum like 2 years ago.
TouchWiz is... well TouchWiz.
It should have wireless charging by default. Not just because I really like wireless charging but also because the stupid flap is a pain in the ass to deal with.
For fuck sake Samsung why did you have to add that thing that marks your phone if you install third party ROMs?
If it makes you feel any better, I can make a similar list for all phones on the market right now. Like I said in another thread today I think all phones on the market has serious flaws. The Note 4 is the least flawed phone on the market right now.
I don't have a Z3/c so I can't speak to the authenticity of the fix. I'm a little concerned about the poster not being a native English speaker, but whatever. I'd recommend waiting for Lollipop if you can. I'm just happy that a workaround is possible.
"outdated" it's not that old, hell it's still a decent phone for the price.
I really don't understand why people need some much CPU power on phones snap 800 is really solid chipset whilst running 1080 is enough.
Although a lot of the things you mentioned are quite true by today's standards with phones like the Note 4 and Droid turbo shitting all over it.
Then again there wasn't much advancement in phones since the S5 came out back in April.
If you buy a phone with a big enough memory, the removable SD part won't matter.
Does OPO have a removable battery? Regardless, you can replace batteries but they'll void their warranty which you're spray already doing by installing a custom ROM.
>removable SD part won't matter
for you maybe, I still prefer being able to use and swap sd cards
and opo is far too big
with removable battery I mean like back in the day, you know, pop off the battery cover and take it out
I don't want a 2mm thick smartphone with an 5" screen
Until your phone freezes up and you have to wait till the battery runs out before it finally turns off. Knowing Android this isn't exactly rare.
>>memory card slot
Yes good goy, store all your data in the cloud.
>That's small as fuck for a modern phone.
I know, but that doesn't make it less fuckhuge
I guess I'll just have to buy a nokia or sony ericsson dumb phone
The Nexus 6 is shit.
Worse battery life than the Note 4.
The screen is God awful. Really really awful. The brightness is pathetic and the color accuracy is horrendous.
The camera is mediocre.
No removable battery.
No microSD slot.
Huge (even compared to the Note 4)

1.) Planned Obsolescence.
2.) In the race of thinner and thinner phones, with completely insane minimal chipsets that Apple is leading having a removable battery that is both (a) safe and (b) won't fuck the phone on routine maintenance is near impossible.
Look at iFixit's teardown of the iPhone 6. No fucking way you can add a battery slot without adding thickness to the phone that won't also expose the other silicon controls.
People have spoken, they would rather have thinner & lighter phones rather than a removable battery.
This is the ENTIRE iPhone 6 Motherboard. You can hardly see any of the green base layer on the iPhone 6 ship compared to >>45931209, and its directly exposed next to the battery. To have a safe removable batter you would need to cover it which would make it wider. Not to mention directly behind the batter is the screen, meaning you would need to cover that too (more thickness).
Extensible storage? Theres no more fucking space for a microSD IC on here, look how much the goddamn space MICRO-SIM card takes up compared to the rest of the board. All this to toot their own horn about how thin the Apple is.
The economy has spoken, and it clearly values thinness and weight over removable batteries and extendable storage. I imagine Samsung made similar moves for similar reasons.
CES starts this week, loads of new phones will be announced. You can also check out some chinkphones, I believe sharp has some phones that they only sell in japan that have all your features
Meant to say nano-sim, picture for scale.
I never said it was bad. What I said is the general public overwhelmingly prefers a thinner phone vs. having a removable battery.
If you are in the business of selling phones and you want to sell more of them you would look at the fact that marketing can spin thinness as a features, but not the same about a removable battery.
What percentage of buyers actually care about a removable battery? Its a lot less than the "general public" who will be sizing up any android purchase to the specs of the latest iPhone.
>I imagine Samsung made similar moves for similar reasons.
But Samsung didn't do that. Samsung's flagship phones still have both removable batteries and micro SD. They manage to be very thin and light despite having this. "derp there is no space for microSD!" is a really shitty excuse. The only reason why there isn't any space for it in the iPhone is because Apple didn't make any space for it. They could have if they wanted, but they didn't.
>still not using superior microsoft products
but it's forgiven, there are more than enough idiots on /g/ without the slightest clue about technology
so why start complaining
Sorry but I hate windows phone OS aesthetics. I prefer Android's simple, traditional desktop-like UI to the gay ass try-hard metro tiles.
But you know what? Fine. I might willing to settle. So what are the windows phones that that meet my requirements?
>gay ass try hard metro tiles
lolwut? the WP UI is one of the best things about the OS, it actually looks like it belongs in 2014. and the Lumia 735 fits your description ,or maybe the 830 if you can afford it.
