    Yes it can, but as long as the device itself can handle it apparently because you're basically streaming the media to that device.

    for example the S3 can play HD mkv files @8-bit encoding, but cannot handle 10-bit encoded files, mind that my phone is connected to an ancient linksys wag200g reconfigured as an access point but still streams large files just fine.

    mine handles 10 bit in software just fine, but no solution so far has done streaming with optional software encoding WITHOUT transcoding before it was sent.

    Mine cant :(, and also when i tried streaming a 10-bit episode xbmc crashed on my phone...
    nonetheless you really should try it out if you haven't yet, there are a lot of settings available and TBH i have no idea what i'm doing :D learning by trial and error something like that.

    i guess there is still room for improvement in it will have to see in next updates

    Well, I finally managed to get my LG tablet rooted. Im not gonna install Cyanogenmod on it yet though as everything seems to be running OK on it currently and i dont want to have to redownload about 600 chapters of manga. At least i can use titanium backup and take the LG bloatware off this now.

    debloated stock is often far better than CM.


    CM is always buggy, always lacking features. IMO its only good for older devices that are long abandoned.

    So what would be the best alternative to CM if i wanted something new instead of debloated stock?

    those are your only options. various groups may have made custom variations of CM or stock, but thats it.

    after a moment with the Motorola RAZR i and his X86 SOC i am rather impressed

    ofc 4.3" qHD is a bit a letdown but you still have to zoom or look real close to see pixels... 1080 on a 4.3-5" is kinda useless at my point (let alone QHD UHD... )

    the base interface is good and thanks to google the OS is not too much bloated (2nd phone with the One X i keep on stock non rooted) the time/weather/battery widget is rather cool, 4.4.2 is planned on the device but no ETA
    2014_05_16_03.46.59.png
    for the specs well the Atom is a 2ghz Z2480 SGX540 gpu and 1gb ram (eh more than enough) it score nicely and feels smoother than my S3 under custom rom (and all my apps i use are compatible with it so, no biggies)

    special for @Doc41 since PPSSPP is fully working and even faster than on my S3 so i bought the Gold paid version to support the dev :D

    ahhh you got freed from the Samsung crap yay! :clap:
    any CL10 UHSI from a good brand should do fine (Sandisk/Kingston/Adata), personally i use a Kingston 32gb UHSI C10 for my Razr i so their 64gb should be good too (also they are cheap in Switzerland 24chf for 32gb i guess for the rest of the world they might be cheaper ....)
    nice score, sad it's a Galaxy... they might hold the performance crown but nowadays they are loosing on the side of design/build quality/innovation/price
    yeah 13k ... on a single core/single gpu SOC :3 (and stock) compared to my 17k/23k quad core/quad GPU SOC SIII it'S not that bad ... plus all run smooth and even at 11-27k lower than the high end of today it holds good :D
    above 1gb RAM 13MPix above 4.8" not for me anymore :) (did i mention Kevlar back and Aluminium front frame? :laugh: )

    i always love the people that hate on the samsungs, for one reason:

    theres always an excuse as to things they dont like.

    oh its plastic *goes to a smaller, yet heavier phone*

    oh i dont like their design *goes to a phone with glaring design flaws like no removable battery or SD card slot*

    i just dont get the hate? if you dont own one, dont flame it?

    i'm in the top 10 for fastest phone in the antutu rankings, its light, thin, full HD 1080P, MHL 2.0, wifi N+AC, and the battery lasts 2-3 days with heavy use of all of the above. whats to hate?

    i owned more than one Samsung smartphone i know their flaw (still its a personal opinion in the end xD i just hate Samsung, they are cheap construct, overpriced for what they offer, bloated) ... i did earn my right :D (how much you paid to get in the top 6? price to price Sammy isn't in the race anymore)
    also my post is kinda good on Sammy ahahah i never stated the flaws they have just gave hint on what side they are loosing ground ;)
    and glorified my 13 pathetic K in Antutu for being a single core/single gpu SOC to relieve the sarcasm of that sentence ;) (joking)

    well if people state that ... maybe the hate is really deserved ;) oh the S5 has a bit a better design/build quality i reckon but a HTC M8/Sony Xperia Z2/MI phone/Oppo tend to be cheaper and have all of what Samsung give

    /chill out

    i got this note 3 for $550 Au, network unlocked. less than an ipad, lol.

    and yes, 13K for a single core is impressive. i overclock the crap out of all my old android stuff, lets them last a few years longer.

    for 550$ Au it's fine ... you should see the price in Switzerland ... pfff even with contract they are pricier than other brands:banghead: kinda like Apple ....
    don't worry i just state my opinion in the end all that's important is : if you are satisfied with your phone, then it's fine.

    wow, nice score
    but i dont rely on score too much
    less lag on daily usage is better than higher score

    ahh the feeling of smoothness, probably the first time i feel it:roll:

    just went on DX and picked me a cover+bumper cover+5 screen protectors+magnetic charge cable+toshiba 32gb c10 mSD and all that would cost me 37.88$ :D

    Not sure if looking for a new phone or just want something shiny (I think ive mentioned this before)

    Was checking up on memory usage before on my S3 because browsing the web on dolphin was starting to lag/stutter, Unfortunately I also found that that with the 4.3 update not only did the update come with 3 or 4 polish apps that i could not uninstall so i had to forcefully disable them but the ram usage is ridiculously high. On average im lucky to have anywhere between 100-200Mb spare and thats with all my apps terminated with nothing in the background.

    Now I have been thinking about buying a new phone for about 2 months yet, but my S3 was still strong so i decided that id rather save my money.

    Of course this problem can easily be fixed by rooting the handset and installing omni or CM onto it but I had problems rooting before and im just too lazy to attempt it again.

    With that said, prices for Note 3 are dropping and imo its still a strong handset for those of us who dont require the newest or the fastest handset on the market.

    Ive got a few handsets im interested in:

    1. Oppo Find 7/7a - Great handset but Oppo cant make enough to meet the demand. handsets go out of stock as soon as they announce theyre taking pre-orders, Unfortunately this handset was originally my first choice but its unobtainable.

    2. HTC One M8 - awesome handset but i want a bigger screen otherwise the handset ticks all the right boxes

    3. HTC One Plus One - This was my #1 choice about a month ago, but they deleted the SDcard slot from the final design and thats a deal breaker for me

    4. Note 3 - The Note 3 was rather a 'for lack of a better option' choice because its an older handset but yet prices are dropping because of the S5. Given the fact that the Oppo Find 7 and Note 3 are quite similar in size and also price, Note 3 sits very high on the list (even though i might not show it on 'this' list) but the handset is old (released back in 2012?)



    Imo the note 3 still has a great spec and the 3Gig ram and 5.7" screen will keep it running and me satisfied for a long time to come.


    while the Note 3 might be a great option right now. I dont know if it would be in 2-3years time. So the question i put to you guys is - Would you still buy an Note 3 to run with for the next 2-3years?

    i've got a note 3, and i'm pretty experienced at modding the S3 as well. what model do you have, i can likely help you out. CM is not the way to go with samsungs, modded/debloated stock is.

    I have the i9300 which is the international version of the s3.

    Ive read guides where they were using odin to root and install a new rom but maybe i didnt have the correct drivers or my phone wasnt sent in the correct mode but i attempted to root at least 3 or 4 times with no luck

    i know of a good slimmed down rom for those, and they're super easy to install.

    as long as you're willing to format the phone and wipe it, i can directly link you to everything needed - and the support community/devs for that rom are quite nice to deal with.

    my next post will contain all relevant links, and i'll work in a step by step guide.
