My OnePlus 3T (purchased Dec 2016) is still incredibly durable in terms of battery. I use it all day at work (Spotify, podcasts, social media, YouTube) and it'll still only use up to 30-40%.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

My OP3 battery is fine as well and that was bought on release. If I do have issues with the battery I can change it quite easily.

My S9+ has been off charge since waking up at 6:20am and is still on 67% that's with WIFI and Bluetooth on and my Gear S3 Frontier and Sony Bluetooth ear phones being connected.

Given how it's now either hugely difficult or impossible to replace batteries in these things then it's always going to be the death of the device.

It's why I can never work out how some people manage to keep phones for like 4 years+ or when they are debating which phone to get next are saying things like "but they only supported their last phone for 3 years, I don't want that risk" - how are you even getting 3 years out of it!? Since the smartphone era began I don't think I've had a single device that has stood up to more than 2 years of usage without becoming too much of a burden to keep going longer.


I find those people are the types that don’t install apps, use the web version of services via the built in browser or chrome so there is next to no background process going on and so very little background usage when the phone is locked.

Yeah, this is what I do. In terms of actual use my phones are used regularly. I had my Nexus 6 for maybe 4 years and it was till lasting between a day and a day ad a half between charges. My main reason for upgrading was for a better camera. The Nexus 6 was great for day shots an absolute nightmare for night time shots. If it wasn't for the camera I think I could have eked another year out of it

Has anyone got a Samsung Tab S3 and got any advice on a cable for USB-C to HDMI for it?
My dad bought a cheap generic one but it didn't work, and I bought the official Samsung DeX cable but the S3 doesn't support it, only the S4.

I don't know what the strawberry float is going on with my Note 10 plus but everyday there seems to be new scratches on the screen. I haven't done anything with it that I didn't with my 9+ which was immaculate when I traded it in, I haven't dropped it yet it looks like gooseberry fool. Today there is a scratch that is visible wth the screen is on which is really strawberry floating annoying.
