Android OnePlus Nord is a "budget phone"

I seriously doubt any of you fans of the small form factor are gonna get any happier in the future. Companies are now starting to innovate towards dual screen devices instead. I recently shifted from a 6 inch screen to a 6.7 inch because the 6 inch felt too small for media consumption. The overall form factor didn't increase a lot because the previous phone had buttons and bezels unlike the new one.

Yeah small phones are not gonna happen. They will make like 1% for the niche and price it exorbitantly.

For (portable) media consumption i have two tabs. Any trip i can't carry the tabs, i probably don't have time to enjoy watching media anyway, so a big phone for media is moot. I dunno, i like listening to quality audio but there are people who think portable Bluetooth speakers sound awesome. I guess for those types of people, media on a phone works too.

To put usability in perspective, my Redmi2P was perfect one-handed, redmi 3 & 4 were manageable, but the Asus 5z i can use maybe half the screen and that too with the risk of dropping it. I've never used a case but now do and absolutely hate it.

I've never had much success with Levi's fit. Wrangler skanders on the other hand fit perfectly. Except for the pockets due to the low waist. Not sure if I've tried the 501. I have only one pair of Levi's now, will check what model it is. Weather here is overall too crap for jeans though anyway.

I mostly just use these for everyday casual use. Cheap and ultra comfortable. Dunno if it's a bit chavvy but i don't care.

I'm no fashion expert, but those track pants do look very comfortable. Yes, jeans are not really comfortable for Indian summer.
501s are not really fashionable these days, they are those super old fashioned buttoned jeans ( no zipper)

Cam is actually one of the least important parameters for me in a phone. My redmi4 was perfectly adequate for my needs and it was ultra low specced. Thing is, when i'm buying a new phone i want a good spec for a reasonable price, which is not unrealistic today, except from google. And maybe OP now. Oh and the single sim is a deal-breaker.

For now i'm ok with the 5z, but will most probably upgrade (downgrade?) as soon as a smaller, well-specced and priced phone comes out. Which is probably never. Current phones have gone beyond phablet to small-tablet size and there seems to be no end to the size madness.

Samsung? Not following.

Trousers are kinda ok, it's jeans that are trouble. Sometime in the last two decades they decided than even men should wear low waist jeans like chicks, and that too with tiny pockets...
Yeah, I meant jeans.
From what I recall Samsung started the trend of going beyond 4.2" screen phones. I recall because I was having the exact same conversation with my elder cousin when I wanted to go for big screen(reasonably sized) while he was suggesting to go for a relatively smaller sized phone.

Hope the money he spent to pay MKBHD to advertise the phone didn't come from his pocket :p
