What generic android phone do people suggest?

Oppo, any of them.

Looks like Apple, runs on blank canvas android, cameras and software are excellent.

Also they cost SFA
Yeah I'm thinking about getting Oppo next when my contract runs out on my S9+. Their Bluray players were the best in the business, and they shut that down because their phone business was so successful. My mate has one and it looks great.

I love my Nokia... runs stock Android and gets all the updates along with the Pixels.
Mine is the older model (Original Nokia 8), but I have had no issues at all with it. Also doesn't have the stupid fucking curved screen!!!

You USED to be able to disable (or remap) the button on the side. They blocked people from doing that 6 months ago. So now I'm locked in where previously I could opt out.
That's stupid, trying to force people to use your shitty software doesn't help

During a family emergency last year my mother dropped her phone and needed another immediately so i just bought her an OPPO cheapie with the intention of replacing it later, 5 minutes after the setup was done i was thinking "fuk maybe i should get MYSELF one of these"(and she's still using it like 9 months later with no complaints). Marketed right they really would just crush the phone market.

I was just gonna wait until the next Pixel came out, but the OPPO talk here's giving me pause. Will have to research carefully for once...

The Oppo's are meant to have pretty decent cameras at the lower mid range tier. I think we have a winner here... either the AX5s or AX7 will do me it seems.

Cheers to Neko for bringing up the brand. They do need to sort their marketing out... I completely forgot the brand existed - lol

Good luck with that Cherry.

I've not put together a job application in ages... no thanks to the state governments lack of building warranty protection for consumers requiring me to put in more time into my complex's defects repairs.

Thanks, they advertised on 12th, I applied on the 15th and the advertisement was taken down on 18th so I assume they're currently working out who is on their shortlist to interview of which I hope I'm one. It's time for me to move on from where I am.

Good News! I got a call!
Bad news! I missed it!

Have tried to call back but I think they mostly knock off at 4pm, so will speak to them tomorrow I assume.

Well, that's disappointing... a safety role in mining that requires regular travel to remote mine sites and they're only offering $50k/year. Told the recruiter flatly that the salary is not in line with the role expectations, thanked her for her time and asked her to withdraw my application.

That's ridiculous, my starting salary as a Personal Assistant in Mining in 2004 was $45k.

I agree. That's really low pay for what's required.

Hopefully something good comes up soon for you.

Suppose that's the nature of supply and demand. It'd be interesting to know whether that's the current going rate for someone doing that work, or whether they're optimistically trying to get someone as cheaply as possible. Maybe they'll have to offer more to the eventual candidate, or see what kind of loyalty that money provides.

It's too bad that often that sort of information is obscured from us as job hunters - it would give us way more bargaining power when the market is good, and allow us to accept weak offers when the market is bad.

Everyone I've spoken to about it (in particular, my referees who are still actively employed in the industry) have said the salary is insulting and completely insufficient for what was advertised especially with the travel requirement and taking into account my 13 years of relevant experience in the industry. At the end of the day, I'm not desperate for a job and I'm certainly not going to drop 50% of my salary just because a role interests me. It just annoys me when companies don't advertise a salary range for a role, if I had any clue the salary was that pathetic I would never have bothered even applying.

It should be required by law to state a salary expectation.

I agree with that. It's one reason I prefer to apply for public sector positions. There's little room to negotiate more pay but at least what you get is usually fair and stated upfront.

I've noticed that with government roles.

We have a few government options here - mainly DPI & hospital, I won't bother applying for anything at DPI as a chick that hates me (feeling is mutual) works in recruitment there so I'll keep an eye on the hospital. They're also in the process of building a swanky new private hospital so there might be some options there too eventually.

Been having lower back pain all weekend. Saw osteo. He doesn't think the root cause is a weak back. Was bloated the other night. Some gas build up could be the issue. Hurts every time I burp. Hoping it's not a gall bladder issue.
