    They must have a crappy rom then cause this thing is leap years ahead of my thunderbolt and other dual cores I have seen.

    I prefer to use Lookout, which not only scans the apps you download, but also provides free location services.

    For Christmas I got my wife a 32Gb Nexus 7 and it is pretty fast. Great price for a fast tablet. :cool:

    Yes it is. It's the first tablet I considered buying and don't regret a thing. Perfect size, build quality, good screen, speed and the right price.

    Totally loving my new nexus 10. It is by far my favorite device to date. The screen will blow your dam mind. I highly recommend it!!

    If I had the money I was going to get the Nexus 10 instead, but for the price, the Nexus 7 was a great deal. They're both great devices. :toast:

    The nexus 7 is also bad ass. The main reason I bought the 10 over the 7 was just the ridiculous screen lol. If not for that I would have got the 7 most likely for its extreme portability.

    For some odd reason I don't like the 10" tabs. Seem a little too big to me.

    I think I'm with you, Shaun. 7" is just the right size for me.

    Galaxy S III Devices Hit with Failing Mainboards Issues

    The new problem, however, appears to be of a more serious nature, with the device’s mainboard dying unexpectedly after around 150 – 200 days of use.

    The problem was reported for the first time over a month ago on the XDA-Developers forum, and many other users confirmed similar issues with their phones.

    Apparently, Samsung is providing replacements to its users regardless of whether the phone has been rooted or not, even if it was running under unofficial software before failing.

    According to some rumors on the matter, the issue might be related to the NAND memory, which is said to become corrupted and fail.

    Furthermore, reports suggest that Samsung is replacing the mainboards with chipsets featuring the same revision, which might not actually resolve the issue.

    Samsung hasn’t provided an official announcement on the matter, but it seems that the issue is somehow widespread.

    As AndroidAuthority reports, Reddit user TurtleRecall notes a similar issue with their Galaxy S III unit. Apparently, the people over at the Samsung repair center also confirmed that the issue appeared a lot lately.

    There are no specific details available on how widespread the issue actually is, nor on what Samsung is planning to do to resolve it. However, it’s almost certain that the problem is not an isolated one

    Thanks micro, my cellular contract expires in January and my entire family planned on getting GS3s. Unless Samsung fixes the problem soon, we'll have to look for alternatives or go for iPhones.

    But if it still has the problem and you know that you're going to have to eventually send it back, a lot of people don't like going without their cell phone. It's not the kind of thing people like to have to send back and go without...

    It's not guaranteed you will have any issues whatsoever. My GS3 is still kicking strong with no problems. I'm sure now that I said this, it will die later today though :D

    I may switch to a nexus 4 anywayz. Anyone wanna buy a GS3?? :DD

    I had a problem with my Samsung GS II Skyrocket. Had to send it back. I just put the sim back in my old phone for a week. No big deal.

    I do like the OneX more than the S3
    OneX has a better screen, the SMOLED is over saturated imo.

    S3 has very little custom roms that work.... Sense is to buggy but the OneX Viper Rom is excellent.
    Now that Installous is out I will likely sell off the iPhone, phone is rather useless unless Jailbroken


    Work mostly... the imessage is very handy
