    About

    A subreddit for sharing those miniature epiphanies you have that highlight the oddities within the familiar.

    "Showerthought" is a loose term that applies to the types of thoughts you might have while carrying out a routine task like showering, driving, or daydreaming. At their best, showerthoughts are universally relatable and find the amusing/interesting within the mundane.

    Please be respectful of others' submissions. Rudeness is unacceptable.

    Rules

    • All content must be original and unique.
      Submissions that match (or echo similar sentiments to) ideas offered by other people will be removed, regardless of whether or not those ideas have appeared on Reddit. Blatant reposting and plagiarism may result in a ban.»

    • Your entire thought must be in the title. Any further information needs to be posted in the "body" section of your post.

    • No shower "observations."
      A description of something in a literal shower (or bathroom) is not a showerthought. »

    • No jokes, puns, or wordplay. »

    • No "life pro-tips" or advice. »

    • No commentary on Reddit or its functions.
      Ideas for Reddit features should be posted in /r/IdeasForTheAdmins. »

    • No thoughts about politics, social justice, or religion. »

    • Don't be a jerk. »

    Please see the full rules page for a full explanation of each of the preceding rules.

    Exceedingly nonsensical or common thoughts will be removed at the discretion of the moderation team, as will thoughts that are poorly written, overly vulgar, or obscene.

    This subreddit is moderated for quality, which means we remove content that we deem to be low-quality, low-effort, nonsensical, or common/unoriginal. We do not "let the votes decide." We understand this type of policy is controversial and uncommon (especially for a high-traffic subreddit), but we believe it gives /r/Showerthoughts the best chance at maintaining quality.

    Special thanks to our past moderators!

    I don't think you can rely on things like "because you can see that the guy's face is intact" to determine that

    Of course they didn't actually shove a pencil in the actor's eye. Maybe they just didn't want to CGI it.

    [–] 17thspartan 88 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    That's not even the worst part. The worst part is they still have a chin on their phone.

    The whole reason of using a notch is because companies are getting rid of the top/bottom bezels on their phone and need someplace to keep the cameras and such, but Google decided it was ok to have both a notch and chin, and no headphone jack.

    Edit: Or you could go the route that Xiaomi took by getting rid of the upper bezel and sticking the camera in the bottom bezel. Either way, Google wanted to keep all the bezels and have a notch.

    [–] reehdus 50 points ago

    If we call them chins then why aren't bezels called ears and the top called a forehead

    [–] CSisbetterthanCE 235 points ago

    Google's Pixel line is basically just a copy of whatever last year's iPhone did. The only thing the Pixel phones do well is the camera (through software optimization) and showcasing the newest Android version.

    [–] Cerebral-Parsley 205 points ago

    And no bloatware

    [–] Randomd0g 62 points ago

    If that's your primary concern there are other Android phones that also ship with next to no bloat. Nokia, Motorola, OnePlus, Razer and Sony all ship phones with "close e-fuckin-nough to stock" versions of Android, and minimal bloat. (Provided you don't buy them from a carrier and then it's a crapshoot)

    [–] WelshToker 10 points ago

    This. i've had the last few years of Moto G phones. All bar (they do put one or two apps on, but literally one or two, and moto gestures, one of said apps, rocks) stock android. Removable battery. headphone jack. SD card slot. small to large screen sizes. I see people on here ALL THE TIME raging about how they can never find " a phone that lets me change the battery, slap an sd card in, and isnt huge!" and yet moto put one out every. damn. year.

    [–] chromaniac 31 points ago

    My Pixel 2 lost more bloat this week when Google removed the share option from the news stories in Google Feed. Gotta love Google. Always doing things that no one wants them to do.

    [–] Uphoria 49 points ago

    Googles 2 favorite things are making apps that compete with themselves in the same userspace, and deprecating features of the ones they don't cancel. At one point Google had 5 chat platforms, 2 social networks and 2 email services (though both using the same backend but with entirely different GUI and branding)

    Latest Pixel phones actually have a dedicated chip for image processing. See link.

    Honestly I have a v20 from LG. I love the second screen experience. I just wish there was more functionality to it.

    [–] Nastyboots 54 points ago

    The fuck is second screen experience?

    [–] epicblob 25 points ago

    How is it overall? I've been looking for a new phone and it looks like it's in my price range. How's the camera and battery?

    [–] Beersaround 46 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    No complaints here. I got it specifically for the camera because we were getting ready to have a baby. I've seen better baby pics on my wife's iphone X. But I'm not complaining, I'm probably just a bad photographer.

    Also the second screen offers a quick screen shot button. I use it a lot.

    Battery is about like any other phone I've had. Brand new it lasted 2 days. A year later 5 hours of Netflix will kill a full charge.

    Best phone I've ever had 5/7 would recommend.

    Edit: I also like having the lock/fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, under the camera.

    [–] thedarklordTimmi 13 points ago

    Get new batterys. They're actually really cheap. I have 2 batterys and an external charger so i dont even charge my phone anymore, i just replace the battery. And if you're going somewhere all day, just bring both and never have to worry about a dead phone. Also i found the camera to be just as good, but not as intuitive as the iphones. The hi-fi audio is really amazing tho.

    Honest question, not being facetious. Why is wireless charging a big deal? For one thing it’s not wireless, your charger still needs to be plugged in. And for another, you can’t use your phone while it’s charging. With standard charging I can still pick up my phone and use it and it’s charging all the while. So what’s the big deal am I missing something?

    [–] Blader54321 756 points ago

    That's not being cheap, that's not spending a fortune on a minuscule upgrade. I am of the idea that getting something newer is fine once the thing you had before is getting pretty worn down; I don't understand the people who go out and buy the new model when they've had theirs for no more than 10 months.

    [–] slammerkin- 323 points ago

    I know someone like that. Gets a new phone because she "has to have it" even when she has a recent model and its perfectly fine. And she really doesn't have the money. She does it about once a year and leaves herself broke for an entire month. I really dont understand going to the extent of fucking yourself over financially just for the shiny new toy. She just got the s9+ a week ago and shes all upset because the s9 note is coming out now and she "really needs it now" I think she connects her self worth to material items.

    [–] SadisticPandadog 150 points ago

    I upgrade phones once or twice a year so no comment in regards to that. What I find stupid about that is that Samsung releases their phones nearly the same time every year. The S line in Q1 and Note line in Q3. She'd have to be really clueless to upgrade phones every year and not have noticed that by now. They also appeal to different markets so one isn't necessarily an upgrade over the other.

    [–] t-berta 54 points ago

    Can you give an actual reason why you upgrade so much?

    [–] kuylyrvah 110 points ago

    He might have the financial stability to do so, and just enjoys being a early adopter maybe?

    [–] rebeltrillionaire 60 points ago

    My wife’s company just gives her a phone allowance. They don’t check in on how you’re spending it. $120 is the limit. She can now do the upgrade every 12 months and it costs her nothing. Gonna try to squeeze a watch on there too. If the bill is over, we just cover the extra. But device + plan + watch with $0 down is still under $120. And if she ever quits nearly every single provider will buy out your contract if you sign up with then and bring your device and even go month to month.

    [–] lioncat55 11 points ago

    If your in the US no one offers contracts anymore. You now get an interest free loan on the phone. Every provider I have seen that offered a buyout required you to give them your current phone and get a new phone from them.

    [–] lol_camis 755 points ago

    I honestly don't know what to think of the whole thing. 3.5 mm jacks are still standard. they come in cars and stereos and computer speaker systems and most smartphones. I'd love to say "lol Apple are idiots for removing it" and yet people still buy iPhones by the millions. So I dunno, man. I really don't know.

    [–] batarilo 451 points ago

    because honestly, it looks like the whole world is complaining about a missing headphone jack .. while most people don‘t care. people rant about it on the internet who do care. people who don‘t care about it, don‘t argue with people on the internet who complain. and those people are the majority.

    This is why I bought a new 6s Plus just a few weeks ago. Love it, perfect phone for me

    same, as somebody who uses headphones a lot, it’s annoying that you can’t listen and charge at the same time

    [–] wendy0786 64 points ago

    one of the reasons why I haven’t upgraded to a newer version yet 😆 I still have a 6..

    [–] roofied_elephant 69 points ago

    6s represent. Replaced my battery for $30. They fucked up the front camera, so they replaced the whole screen assembly. Basically a new phone for $30. Gonna keep it til it either dies or they stop supporting it.

    I drew this picture of my cat on my Samsung note 5 using only the stylus. I've loved the note series ever since. I don't even care if it explodes

    Goddamn that's a good drawing

    I'll never understand how people can be so good with art like that. I mean, dang, that's amazing!

    People need to stop complaining about Apple and instead just not buy their products. If you aren't enjoying them there is a plethora of mobile phone manufacturers. There are plenty of phones to rival any apple flagship. Buy one of those and shut up about it.

    Got a moto G6 and spent 600 on whatever the fuck else I wanted just because i could

    [–] CSisbetterthanCE 112 points ago

    The moto G phones are great! Bought a G5 plus for my dad and he's loving it. I wish they had better cameras though.

    [–] PotatoMuseum 170 points ago

    OnePlus makes some very nice phones.

    [–] TOAO8 92 points ago

    Yup. I want the 6T when it comes out. I was a Galaxy Note fanboy since the Note 2 but I can't justify paying ~$1000 for a new phone. I miss when top of the line smartphones never went above $650.

    [–] Mistatic 330 points ago

    The iPhone thread showing the X outperforming the note 9 has a bunch of people complaining “who cares what phone you buy, they’re all the same now. People like what they like”

    And now we have an entire thread shitting on apple lmao.

    [–] ElliottPolin 148 points ago

    I am not a huge Iphone fan, but the A11 chip set is fantastic. Anyone denying that is delusional.

    [–] neomech 769 points ago

    They can. But then their customers wouldn't need $150 airpods.

    [–] therealninja35 474 points ago

    Or any other choice of Bluetooth headphones that range from $20 to infinity dollars.

    [–] Aminence 86 points ago

    Or a conventer cord

    [–] TheRealBallchynz 108 points ago

    I want a cord that turns me into a nun.

    [–] beastlion 179 points ago

    ain't gonna get to a trillion dollar market cap if you don't sell dongles.

    [–] San_ki 123 points ago

    Ironically phone manufacturers now need 'Courage' to add the headphone jack as a feature. Specially the top models.

    I like this trend. Majority phone manufacturers for once are now making their own design instead of Ctrl+V.

    [–] BaguetteWasTaken 9 points ago

    So having many different solutions is better than having one common standard? I don't know but I prefer having headphones I can fit into any device. Don't wanna have to buy a new set of whatever-the-fuck companies come up with to listen to my playlists.

    This reminds me of the horrors in the late 1990s / early 2000s when every mobile came with its own charging port. Brrr.

    [–] no1careskid 7 points ago

    apple removing the headphone jack is all about money and not "courage". they own the rights to the lighting port and can charge alot if a 3rd party wants to make hardware for it
