People looking for a thread about robots turn away now.

 

Others join in.

 

 

First off i have a couple of questions.

 

Without rooting is there anyway to take screenshots?

Can you change phone contacts to google contacts without re-creating? I imported them from outlook and it makes them phone contacts which obvious don't sync with google servers.

 

Which apps do you recommend?

 

So far my most useful  apps are.

 

Taskiller free.

For those that have the HTC One S, I just received a system software update which is meant to fix the wifi drops and some other stuff :)

Everyone probably knows this but I thought it was cool.


 

I couldnt get that to work, the black bar you drag down?

 

if you put ics browser+ on, its the same as the standard browser, cept you can go into menu > Settings > advandced and in the Browser+ Settings you can change the user agent to "desktop" which means the rich text text box on this forum will work, and the desktop version of sites will load by default.

 

Seen as the browser is pretty good, nearly all sites work fine in desktop mode anyway so its well worth installing and turning on and using as the browser.

Judging from comments I've been reading on the web, people feel as though they were left wanting more.

I suppose this is the danger when you try to hype your product up to the high heavens.

 

9 million preorders for the s3 would indicate that no one was left wanting, They may just about have enough to meet orders when it drops and they are making 5 million a month.

 

Samsung are on fire at the moment, not only are they making huge profits, but they are also having amazing research, they made breakthroughs in graphene, oled, hdd and processors that means into the future technology wise they have nothing to worry about.

 

People critic for them stealing design ideas, they used their own design for the s3 and its probably going to be their biggest selling phone ever.

 

I think they pretty much shut every critic up with the release of one phone.

 

 

The sad news is, samsung used to share their research with others, but these days they probably wont, and now everyone will probably have to pay samsung to make super fast graphene phones.

Just read about that; hats off to Samsung it seems now that the Galaxy brand has gained a very impressive reputation. 

I do agree with the design though. It clearly reeks of Samsung trying to show that they can be successful without having a phone design that looks similar to the iphone apparently leading to a ton full of lawsuits. 

 

I do admit though, though I'm not really fussed about the phone itself, I would quite fancy a little play around on it and see how these proximity sensors work.

yeah, im not going to get an s3, i have a note and am in love with the notes form factor so its a no go, I also dont like the look of s3 in photos, I will admit though that their other pebel inspired stuff looks nicer in person.

 

With 9 million preorders though, its out of this world, i thought 4 million was amazing, 9 million is hard to get the head around.

 

It was brave of them, and shows yeah they sometimes take design cues from others but at the end of the day thats not why people are buying them, hopefully be brave enough to throw some more of their design talent into stuff, i think their tvs look good.

Sony confirmed no ICS for the Xperia Play (on 25th) afterall could have picked a better date to say so this is the window it was scheduled for (late may/early june)

 

Think I might have to get a HTC incredible S instead come June atleast it gets ICS. :smileyfrustrated:

Some little niggets that I didn't realise the Galaxy S3 had.

 It has an RGB notification LED which I've always be quite fond of when I've seen a similar thing on the blackberry phones.

It also features wolfson DAC audio. Now I don't pretend to know everything about audio, but from the gist of things I am led to believe that it is a good thing.

Intrestingly enough HTC used an RGB noticication LED on the Desire, not sure about the Nexus, and not sure about other HTC phones, HTC just used it for the standard green and orange, but apps like go messenger I think it was can use other colours.

You could probably pick up a nearly new HTC Sensation or Galaxy S2 for around that price on eBay at this stage.

Nexus S is also a good shout too for that budget, was £199 new at Christmas.

Pity ASDA sold out of the Evo 3D as it was a good price http://direct.asda.com/HTC-Evo-3D-Android-Mobile-Phone/008718410,default,pd.html

Nexus is out the window with no sd expansion is a no buy on top of not upgrade path to ICS and not a big fan of "3D" phones so it leaves the sensation or S2 then I guess.

No you're stuck with 16GB on the Nexus S but it does have ICS, it was one of the first to get it as an OTA update (well, if you ignore that they rolled it out, then stopped and then rolled it out again).

 

Runs pretty well even with a LWP http://youtu.be/mtOAtmSHqGE?hd=1

Any good?

I'm tempting to buy this as it seems a decent price given the software/hardware in it. A couple of comments i've read state no SD slot but an OTG cable has been suggested as an alternative for connecting stuff to it. Could I also just connect a portable usb drive via usb?

To be honest with you, I was quite impressed with the specifications on it for the price. I would probably say it's the best looking budget tablet I've seen yet.

Yeah the Nexus 7 is by far the best budget device out there, specs are honestly great on it.

If I didn't already have a tablet I'd be jumping on that 16GB version.

Still don't want it though I'd rather get a touchpad and shove ICS on it 9.7 > 7 inch.
