Which Wifi Antenna to substitute my phone tethering? [on hold]

I have a project for my home. I’m living near the university and, as many university, there is “eduroam” network available. The problem is that I can connect to this network from the terrace and not from my room. Now, in order to use my laptop, I put my phone in the terrace (Xiaomi Mi A1) and share its connection through USB cable using Android USB tethering feature and my connection is around 30 Mbps.

Now I have bought an external wifi antenna to attach it to a Raspberry that simulates a router. So the antenna connects to eduroam then the internal raspi wifi share the connection in my house. Of course there are some problems if I’m writing here. The antenna is not so powerfull and the connection is very unstable with very few kbps. The antenna was this one: https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B0793JYW3V/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 but I’m searching for something that can replace my phone without loss the of internet speed and quality. Do you have any hardware to suggest to solve my problem and get my phone back?

Small LineageOS phone, either cheap or rugged

I’m searching for a phone which meets those requirements:

  • Either below $100, or rugged (that is, I want to minimize cost of use. And I tend to drop things)
  • No larger than 4.5″, but the smaller the better
  • Supported by current LineageOS (used to be named Cyanogenmod)
  • 4G
  • Removable storage, i.e. uSD

While there are other requirements, I don’t think there can be a candidate which meets the ones I listed, but not the ones I didn’t list.

Does the Wowfixit screen protector harden phone screens?

The WOWFIXIT web-page offers a product where you wipe a liquid over your phone screen and polish it.

They claim the result will make your protect your phone screen from scratches:

One of the many advantages of WOWFIXIT is that after applying WOWFIXIT to your device it will create an invisible layer that will protect your device from scratches and scuffs for up to one year. This layer reaches the full hardness of 9H on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, which is a scale that characterizes scratch resistance, and is similar to Sapphire, Ruby or Corundum. Its almost as hard as a Diamond.

[…]

Using WOWFIXIT invisible liquid screen protector makes your screen up to 40% stronger in less than 5 minutes.

One retailer claims it is “consists of nanoparticles of titanium dioxide” but they stopped sounding convincing when they said “protective layer reduces the electromagnetic radiation by 92.7%”

Does this product protect screens against scratches?

smart phone that won’t need to be replaced for at least 10 years

I have had two smart phones in the last 8 years: the first I kept for 5 years, and my current phone I have had for 3 years. I don’t mind keeping the same phone for a long time, but it seems like no matter how much research I have done I always wind up with a phone that won’t last as long as I want it to.

My first phone developed issues with the micro USB plug, apparently it was a design flaw whereby over time the connection became intermittent, making it difficult to keep the phone properly charged.

My current phone has known issues with the battery. I suppose I can always replace the battery every year or two at 50-100 bucks a pop, but unlike my first phone the battery is not user replaceable and this is somewhat of a pain as well as more expensive than if it was user replaceable.

What specific makes and models should I consider if I want to use the same phone for at least ten years? Assume that I don’t care about OS updates, Android is preferred, and that I’m willing to buy a (possibly used) phone already a year or two old so as to have a better idea of its track record (no design flaws that shake out in the first year or two) as well as save some money versus a new product. Exact feature set is not terribly important as long as it’s towards the high end of the smart phone range as of the time of its offering. In general they all seems pretty similar to me and the main thing I am concerned about, long term reliability, isn’t easy to come by and certainly isn’t a listed feature or necessarily even a design concern given the propensity of many people to buy a phone every two years to keep up with the latest incremental features.

Update: From the comments, it seems like the most likely candidate will have wireless charging (to avoid premature USB failure from plugging and unplugging it a lot) and a removable battery (which makes a lot of sense not only from easy of replacing the battery when it fails, but also being able to carry along extra batteries to extend life.) However, looking at 2018 phones there appears to be no intersection of the two, as the former is a high end feature and high end phones apparently eschew a removable battery in favor of being somewhat waterproof, a feature which is very low on my priority list (getting a bit of sweat on it in my pocket is about as wet as my phone will ever get.)

Looking for phone case for Sony z5 Compact (or similar) with slider on back to protect camera lens external…

Irritatingly, nearly every single phone case I see has a hole for the lens on the back.

Such lazy thinking in design!

Sure, it means the lens is recessed, but what happens if something hard and pointy happens to find its way (by mistake) into the same pocket or bag as the phone, when we’re in a hurry and we chuck everything together. Like house or car keys or pens. Or sand.

The only smart thinking people I can find online who are enlightened to this obvious need are https://eyepatchcase.com/ (I don’t work for them, nor affiliated with them in any way).

But, on the basis of what’s on their website, it seems like iPhones are the only type of phone that needs this kind of care. No cases listed for Android phones.

With the Sony Z3 Compact glass back, I was able to fit a stiff glass screen protector onto the back and protect the camera, with decent transmission of light through it not reducing quality. However, with the Z5 Compact, the back is a matt textured finish to which a glass screen protector does fit as well to as it did with the Z3 Compact.

Any ideas as to who might sell a case with a sliding lens protector built into the case?

I think Nokia had the right idea with the N95 and N82 with the built in sliding windows for their Carl Zeiss cameras. Shame phone makers don’t get this into their heads that people want to look after their phone lens properly.
