    Reading the web site it is best to get the Verizon model which is preconfig to work with Verizon and 5g etc if you get the unlocked version there are some cdma steps you have to jump through

    It seems the Verizon model has only 8gb internal and max internal of 128gb and has the 5g and it's a model called uw and not the same as a pro

    Looks good but wanna here from anybody who got this particular model and what they think

    I doubt anyone here has a Verizon model, or they would have chimed in by now.

    It's a tempting phone seems to be on sale for $33/month on Verizon which is cheaper then the Moto edge and it's screen problems. I haven't really found anything bad on the internet about the one plus

    It's interesting that it has a physical button to switch the vibrate silent etc like an iPhone I hope it isn't too easily bumped or might have to tape it down

    The UW is a smaller phone and only has a 90Hz refresh rate opposed to the Pro with 120Hz refresh rate. There are a few other differences.

    You have to want to use it, not easily bumped.

    I like the smaller size of screen it's already bigger then my z2 force don't like that I can't get a 256gb variant

    What does the refresh speed do clarity or video speed or flicker?

    The refresh rate is a measure of how many times a screen redraws an image, the higher the better. My Note 10 and V60 both have 60Hz and my OnePlus 7 Pro has 90Hz, my old eyes can't tell the difference.

    I have not seen any visual difference between the 60Hz refresh on all my previous phones and the 90Hz refresh on my Pixel 4. Some can notice the difference, but I can't.

    The Samsung sg20 looks like a decent phone and seems like the best supported.phone besides Moto but yet reviews say fingerprint reader isnt as good as one plus

    One plus seems to good.to be true and Samsung seems to be what most Android people seem to have so I am.look at Samsung's now except for the fact that the one Samsung I had had a ringer issue.

    Keep reading all the articles

    I think I'd you go Samsung S20+ or Note 10 + are great options ...you get a little flatter screen on the S20s...
