    Count me in. HTC Sensation 4G and with the recommended app of Mercury Messenger. You can chat with any email provider if I'm right. easy to use and to understand with possibility to update at Mercury pro without adds. But even basic versio nthe adds are minimal.

    I just can't seem to get interested in playing games on my smartphones. I"Ve done angry birds, Contract Killer, Riptide, Paper Toss etc..etc and I just get bored and never play em again. I'm on smartphones for lots of other uses though, but gaming just isn't one of em, even on my Note 1 and 2

    angry birds is more fun for me on my phone than on my android tablet/ipad.


    yes its bigger and easier to see, but the whole benefit to those games is the portability. you dont play it at home, you play it at work, or on the bus.

    Downloading. Ive never seen it before.

    First run:
    Average: 46.3 fps
    Resolution: 1280x752
    Setting: High quality

    Thats with an ASUS transformer prime

    I was going to try it overclocked but the silly overclocking app decided to not overclock beyond stock speed anymore. Kindof defeats the purpose...

    What I like of my older setup I have right now is the +5vsb jumpers. Still feeding the USB ports even the computer is closed. No need to unplug phone after piuctures transfer I leave it there then I charge it.

    Saw this case for the 2G iPod Touch that lets you use AA batteries in it.
    http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=DLA2265D&cat=CON

    Has anyone seen something like this for the Nexus 7? Seems like you could fit atleast four AA batteries into a case for it, maybe even 6 or 8..

    That would be awesome.

    Also what cases do you guys use?

    The V972 looks promising. Post your opinion/thoughts when you get them please.

    I will from what I have read online it has a few minor software issues. Hopefully someone releases custom firmware for it or the stocker gets better. From the other forums 1.32 isn't bad and they promise to release 4.2 on it...

    Weirdism for it is they advertise 1.5ghz and specs online show 1.5ghz but most all of the A31 tablets seem to run max 1ghz...going to try overclocking it to 1.5ghz via software and root...even at 1ghz it and its GPU's can decode 4K video...interestingly enough.
     
    Grnfinger says thanks.

    That right there is good.

    I'm trying to find something equivalent for the Nexus 7

    There doesn't seem to be a single decent case for the LG Lucid either.

    EDIT: Trident makes the Aegis series for Nexus 7 and LG Lucid that have silicone plugs for the 3.5mm and USB

    Yeah poweramp is the best. I tried a ton of music apps and it's by far my favorite

    I also use poweramp - been using it since i had my Xperia. As for the games debate - I have a few games installed on my S3,

    Wild blood, Angry birds, asphalt 7, NFS Most Wanted

    I haven't even touched them, even at work. I loaded up a game of angry birds while waiting for the film to start at the cinema once, watching trailers and other advertisements bores me but thats about it.

    I dare not take it out while commuting because I could get mugged.

    Just got a pair of Galaxy Note 2's for me and my MRS, we both moved from the iPhone 4. Had quite a learning curve although now that I've got it all setup I think phablet devices suit me more since I can't stand the small screens on other smartphones now lol. I'm still a bit iffy with Android since I don't know which apps are the best for using and downloading music etc.

    Definitely going to miss iTunes though since that was the main thing holding me back all this time to change but so far I'm loving the live wallpapers and the highly customizable UI to suit my needs & simplicity. The phone itself is amazing and has good performance and also has lots of fun features from Samsung to play around with aka S Pen, Samsung Allshare etc. If Android had access to iTunes because of its huge music library I'd have been 100% sold but so far its been a good experience and change, the best thing though is the screen.. its the perfect size!
