Talk about the mobile phones I used in high school.

On the last afternoon of the college entrance examination, when I walked out of the examination room, I received two envelopes from the class leader. I thought it was a ~~love letter~~ letter from someone, but when I opened it, I found out that they were the two phones I had confiscated. Memories rushed into my mind in an instant, so let me take this opportunity to talk about the stories of these two phones.

Front condition: battle-hardened

Back condition: heavily damaged

One of these phones is an LG G7, and the other one is a OnePlus 6. The LG G7 is the oldest one and the one I bought myself, so let's start with this one.

When I turned it on, I encountered a problem: the charger indicated that it had water damage and couldn't charge at all. I tried picking it with a needle, wiping it with a tissue, blowing it with a hairdryer, and applying ethanol, but none of them worked. In the end, I came up with a clever idea. I remembered that the LG G7 supports wireless charging, so I found the wireless charging dock from years ago and successfully revived it.

However, in the end, it miraculously started charging with a cable, so I returned the charging dock (sadly).

The screen frame was noticeably damaged, which happened during the time the phone was stored, but luckily, there were no issues with the touch screen or the internal screen. The back also had no scratches, and the condition was even better than I expected. After using it for a while, the battery didn't have much loss either, so it was quite perfect.

The origin of this phone is quite special. It was the first phone I bought for myself (previously, I had used hand-me-down phones from my family). When I was in my first year of high school, I earned some money by helping others and combined with the money I saved, it was enough for me to pick up a second-hand phone. At that time, my choice was the Motorola Z2 Force, for a simple reason: it was cheap. When I received it, I was amazed by the OLED display that I had never experienced before and the slim and lightweight feel. I instantly fell in love with it.

But after using it for a while, when the novelty wore off, all I saw were countless flaws: firstly, the battery. The trade-off for the slim body was a small battery, and the battery capacity of less than 3000mAh couldn't meet my daily needs. Secondly, the screen. After using the OnePlus 6, I realized the visible difference between a good screen and a trash screen. Unfortunately, the Z2 Force had a trash screen. Another problem was the most fatal one: my phone was not unlocked for China Telecom's 4G network, so I could only dream of experiencing the "fast" 3G network from the early 2000s. It was these reasons that eventually led me to return the Z2 Force and continue searching for satisfactory second-hand phones (why not choose a brand new one? Because I couldn't afford it).

Based on these reasons, I chose the LG G7. And my choice didn't disappoint me. Firstly, the screen. When I first came into contact with this top-of-the-line LCD screen, I finally understood why some people insist on buying non-LCD screens: whether it's the comfort of using the phone at midnight, the visibility under direct sunlight, or the resolution that far exceeds the 3K screen of a certain manufacturer's 1080p screen at that time, I couldn't help but exclaim, "LCD will never be a slave." Not to mention the hifi chip unique to LG, at first, I didn't think much of it, but my requirements for sound quality gradually increased, to the point where I would get a headache from poor audio quality (I'm talking about you, certain music streaming platform). It was the hifi feature that made me decide to only switch to LG for future phone upgrades. In conclusion, buying the LG G7 was definitely the right decision and it gave me the confidence to continue picking up second-hand phones.

One year later, one afternoon, when I looked up from playing with my phone during class and saw the teacher's face, I instantly realized that I would say goodbye to my phone. The story of the LG G7 came to an end, now let's take a look at the OnePlus 6.

Similar to the G7, the screen of this OnePlus 6 was also fortunate enough to have no damage. Apart from the TPU case inevitably aging and turning yellow, there was no wear and tear on the appearance, it looked as new as before. Overall, the treatment of this OnePlus 6 was obviously better than the G7, which was also fortunate.

The origin of this phone is also special: it was a reward from my dad. At that time, I finally made up my mind to hand over my phone to the school for safekeeping, and it had been a month since then. Coincidentally, my dad got a new 5G phone, so he rewarded me with this phone under the pretext of that reason.

When I first got this phone, I was once again amazed by the feel of the body: although both the OnePlus 6 and LG G7 had glass backs, the back of the OnePlus 6 had a noticeable metallic luster. At first glance, I thought it was made of metal. When I held it, I could feel the smoothness, similar to the feeling of a piano lacquer, it was very smooth and not easily smudged by fingerprints. In terms of feel, it was the best phone I had ever used. Although I really wanted to experience the back without a phone case, in order to keep the back intact, I ultimately chose to use a case, and I missed the rounded texture of the back.

If we talk about the features of the OnePlus 6, there are many: three-stage switch, top-of-the-line OLED display, and a clean system. Since I wasn't satisfied with both OxygenOS and HydrogenOS from OnePlus, I flashed Havoc OS. To my surprise, Havoc OS officially supported the OnePlus 6, so the special features of the original system (three-stage switch, DC dimming, color gamut) could still be used, and even though HydrogenOS was close to stock Android, there was still a significant difference in smoothness compared to true stock Android. Therefore, I chose Havoc OS for daily use.

After saying so much, some people might have noticed a question: usually, when talking about a phone, the camera should play a big role, why didn't I mention it at all in this article? The reason is that I don't like taking photos. I looked through the photo albums of both phones, and they were mostly taken when I had to take them, there were no purely scenic photos. So, I have to skip this part and continue.

In terms of daily use, although both the OnePlus 6 and LG G7 have the same Snapdragon 845 CPU, the OnePlus 6 clearly had better temperature control. With double the amount of RAM compared to the G7, the user experience was naturally better. In terms of battery life, although the battery capacity was only 300mAh more than the G7, the OnePlus 6 had significantly longer battery life. When using the same software, the average battery life of the OnePlus 6 was 50% longer than the G7. What surprised me even more was that the OnePlus 6 also had a built-in DAC, although it didn't perform as well as mainstream DAC chips and wasn't advertised as a selling point, it was still satisfactory. In conclusion, although using the OnePlus 6 didn't give me the same novelty as the G7, I was still quite satisfied with it.

Another year passed, and this OnePlus 6 was unfortunately confiscated during my lunch break, and I didn't keep my promise. From then on, I never brought a phone to school.

I wrote so much in one go, looking back again, I seem to see my past self between the lines: trying every possible way to play with my phone, repeatedly reflecting on myself but never changing, squeezing out the last bit of performance and using all my tricks to achieve a better user experience, staying up all night to find ROMs, flash modules, and modify configurations. Finally, the college entrance examination ended, and no one could stop me from playing with my phone anymore, I could finally play freely. However, when I could finally study without any restrictions, it seems that I lost interest in all of this through my continuous research. Perhaps with the next phone, I will honestly buy an iPhone or a domestic Android phone. Perhaps when choosing the specifications next time, I will consider the appearance, system stability, and camera pixels instead of just the specifications. Perhaps when installing software next time, I will choose the official original version instead of the modified version that is more user-friendly. I can only watch as my enthusiasm fades away, and at this moment, I realize that I can't go back.

Where will the fallen leaves of autumn go? Perhaps only the wind knows.
