>It's OK for me to steal this meat, I wasn't going to pay for it anyway.
Piracy is stealing the same way printing money is stealing. You're devaluing the authentic product and reducing its value for the people trying to sell it. Same exact thing with blocking ads. You're reducing the value of pageviews, which sites need to survive.

Checkmate, piratefags.

Hey /g/. I need serious help.
So I'm having internet troubles, and don't know what in the hell is happening, so I need your help to diagnose the problem and how to effectively solve it. Pic related is happening 99% of the time I try going on any internet pages. So, I turned here because I already called my ISP 15 times past few days, and every time the answer was, WE DON'T KNOW. They say it's fine from their side, they even changed me to a new modem. So, both the new one and the old one did the same thing. So, what is even weirder, I can speak on mumble, but I won't be able to access any internet pages, nor find any game servers, lose connection to steam etc. I also have an iPhone connected wirelessly to the modem, and it loses connection as well. So it's not a device related problem. This shit started happening last 4 days. Out of the blue.

>What happens:
>Internet goes kill every 10 minutes for about half an hour of fucking around with me
>sometimes I can speak on mumble/skype without a problem, but won't be able to access any pages on the entire World Wide Web

>What I have already tried doing:
>rebooting the modem
>killing its power for a few minutes
>tried isolating the programs losing connection, so it's not a program problem, since all of them lose connection
>did a system restore to about a month ago
>trying a different browser (mozilla, chrome (using), and, you guessed it right, Internet fucking Explorer (go ahead, h8 on)), they all lose connection
>screaming and punching the wall

>Possible causes:
>l33t h4ck3z
>Big Daddy Dillon (another amazing h4ck3r)

What I need: help since the TechnicianBoy won't be showing up until Tuesday, and I won't be able to live through the weekend without the internet. It's already frustrating enough that the bitch ISP dunno anything.

You cannot remove the bloat apps without rooting.

You cannot remove the skin at all, you need to flash a new ROM, which would likely destroy your warranty with all the Knox stuff in new samsungs.

Generally, plop a custom launcher, and most of the skinning is gone. You'll notice some differences in menus and notification bars, but it shouldn't be too offputting.

Google some of the pics of the S5 interface, if interested.

If there is a better subforum for this, please feel free to redirect me there, but I digree.

I'm using a combination of two stylish skins, namely 4chan Dark + 4chanx v3 & RiceChan Alpha, with slight modifcations, as you can see here. I love the look, but it's made browsing /int/ bothersome because none of the flags show up. I've got pastebins for both of them below, if someone could tell me what I'd need to do in order to get the flags to display properly, I'd be most grateful. The offending style is rice chan, but it all looks like ass without it.

Guy who posted the comparision.

People shit on the build quality because apparently LG has poor build quality in their phones. It is apparent in their older phones, but I've no clue if anything changed in new phones.

I'm replying on a Nexus 5 and the build quality is great for plastic and it feels wonderful in your hand

But yeah the no SD card really fucking sucks

Considering you are paying half the price of a flagship phone for the quality you get with the nexus 5, having no SD card isn't that bad at all

The LTE compatibility and 2gb of ram are the main selling points here, basically.
And that damn S800.
Speaking of underclocking.
How often are root-unlocked upgrades released?
Will read it right away.
I remember older LG having shit quality, but lately many I've seen have been more than decent.
I might even pick up the 32gb version at this point.
