Just a heads up for everybody who is concerned about storage, USB-OTG (stands for On The Go) allows you to connect a thumb drive {or hell, a full sized portable hard drive) to your phone. You could basically connect a 4TB HDD to your phone if you wanted. The downside is that you only get access to that storage when the drive is connected, but if you need certain music for the car ride, you could just leave it in your console.

Yeah, that would work. But like having an extra dongle vs. having a built in phone jack, at the moment it's more convenient for me to store that inside the phone, and not have a separate thing to juggle.

Yeah, I've been looking for one that can go from USB-A to USB-C pretty easily.

Similar to this: https://smile.amazon.com/SanDisk-And...+drive+usb+otg

Which slides from Micro to A with a flick. Not sure if the C versions have hit the market yet.

OMG this doohickey to connect the phones and transfer all the data is not working correctly. Every 8 seconds it tells me to reconnect the wire and i have to unlock the screen on the old phone. I would just be like screw it i'll deal with it later but it already made me transfer the service to the new phone.

I use the carbon fiber skin on my S8.
I'm looking at Skinomi, because I've bought stuff from them before. Do you know if they are similar?

I don't think Dbrand has screen protectors, but the backs look similar. At first glance, it looks like Dbrand might have a wider color/texture selection. And Dbrand doesn't have a name that I'd hesitate to google at work.

I have a friend who I think has a OnePlus and she's been raving about it. I'm also thinking about the LG V30(?). Anyone have any experience with them?

The camera's apparently pretty average, but I use a dslr for the vast majority of my pictures...
i recently picked up the lg v30. my first experience with android so can't say much except it's ok so far

All your data is hacked already (and was before). All of it.
