Default Re: The Official Cell Phone Junkies Thread - Part 1

Despite my best efforts and warnings of the OS's demise, my friend went off and purchased the Nokia 808 online. He got it two days ago and complained about the lack of some apps he used on his old Wildfire. However, that all changed when his phone lasted about 2 days with heavy usage. I'm very impressed with its battery life as I have read Symbian Belle, although optimized for mobiles, was a battery killer.

If not then it's pretty much a UI Layer, you can try or buy one on the Play Store. I've tried a few that I liked. Nova was the one that impressed me the most, though.

Do a search for that in this thread, and you should see a list of must haves.

I just updated my S3 and my texting has gone to ****. It lags, freezes, and sometimes the letters dont even come up.

I had an Evo 4g and never had as many little buggy issues as I have had with the S3. Glad I only got it for 50 bucks on Black Friday.

I can't believe the S3 update just screwed over my texting. Great update guys.

Well that sucks. I'm not that technically savvy as some here, but is there anyway to restore it before the update?

I've never seen the S3 mini...but that would be right up my wife's alley. She enjoys my S3...but it's a bit too big for her.

Essentially it's a Galaxy S 1 that was given some SIII goodies.

I have a question for everyone, how do you guys feel about carrier branding and bloatware? I bought a Lumia 920 off contract from AT&T and use it with a Straight Talk SIM card. I love the phone, but if I could I would get rid of that damn AT&T logo and splash screen. Luckily I can uninstall the bloatware.

If you need to pull the trigger right away, then you won't be disappointed.

I personally hate bloatware. I especially hate when carriers tie their included bloat with to updates or it's tied to the software. It's annoying that some can't be deleted because it will either brick your phone, or prevent you from being able to upgrade. The best thing about having ICS/JB, and any future Android OS is that you can now freeze certain apps.

I prefer to have a phone as vanilla as possible with no brand overlays (Sense, Blur, Touchwiz, etc.) and all bloat removed. That way I put what I want and not have to worry about bricking my phone because I deleted some stupid Golf game.

Agreed with much of what you said DogManBriscoe. I have WP so I can delete bloatware without worrying about bricking, but as a former Android user I hated it with a passion.

Update, got my s3 mini yesterday, and love it, first experience with android, and am very impressed so far!

Just wondering how contracts work over in the US in the UK here we mostly get locked into 24 month contracts, as they work out for the most part the most cost effective, is this similar for you guys?

Well, if it wasn't for me using WM6/6.5, I would have probably never discovered rooting and flashing. I don't mind it once I flash, but then I get the itch to flash over and over again to try new ROMs out. It's like crack.

Yup, two year contract for a discounted price on the phone. Now they do one years as well.

Glad you like the SIII Mini.

Verizon's Nokia Lumia 928 Photo Leaks



Not sure if it's official, being a leak and all. Codenamed Nokia Laser it's supposedly has an 8 mpx shooter with xenon flash, 32 GB internal storage and super-sensitive 720p HD resolution display. All built in a slimmer aluminum chasis working on Verizon's 4G LTE.

Nokia Catwalk for T-Mobile Specs Tweeted?



An OctaOLED display, huh?
