My bad. Maybe your next phone will have a memory slot instead of relying on internal memory only?

Probably not, the better phones (flagship or near flagship models) are usually less likely to have a card slot and I’m not the type to buy some cheapie budget model just for a memory slot at the expense of performance.

That feeling when oom moderator @The_Librarian posts full-sized images on the forum making me scroll for days.
I am so sorry, and apologize for being so inconsiderate.

Next time I will use thumbnails rather, as it is a real schlepp to resize screenshots taken on your phone.

Thanks for letting me know, I will most certainly try to avoid making that mistake, and be more considerate of others :)

Do enjoy the rest of your week :)

Oh well I'm not a power user and as long as a phone is nice and quick with the tasks I give it I'm happy.

I run Excel, Adobe for Circuit Diagrams, Imgur for videos and meme's and a bit of porn here and there and also web browsing for sites like this.

Don't have access to download sites.

But it should be possible? Or easier?
It doest seem to work at all. It's bugged. When an image is uploaded, the text box just doesn't allow you to select the image to resize it like it does on desktop.

I think I reported it in the bug thread already.

OK lemme learn here. Is there a phone out there with both 256G of internal storage AND memory card storage available if wanted?

I'm too lazy to Google it.

Try tapping the image you want to resize with two fingers simultaneously.

It works 9/10 times for me

Possibly some of the Samsung models, some of the S20 series did, so S21 might, and I think I read that Sony had one, Xperia 1 ll maybe?

Will try.

Edit:
So I tried. It doesn't even let you select it once uploaded on mobile. You can see it's trying since the blue resize border appears around it very briefly.

It is an impressive phone, I just wish Sony wouldn't use 21:9 screens though, 18:9 and 19:9 are already stretched enough for me.
Speaking of size, I have come to the realization that unlike 10 years ago where you would pay more for a phone the larger it is, it's now opposite. I am wanting a smaller phone and I'm looking at £300 minimum while I can get a larger Oppo with better specs for for £150. Sucks!!!

True, there are very few mid-range or flagship phones in a small size.

Apple is the only company to really cater for that product space currently.

Bigger is not always best, or what people want.

Market forces drives things.
I wish for a phone with physical QWERTY, but market forces have decided otherwise.
