    Wherever I can find the iron.
    Actually, the first 2 were from Newegg wireless. The third, which did not have the audio problem was from a local corporate store. The phone is great. No issues at all, except that I can't use the phone while it's on the charger.

    That's asinine, in my opinion. I would ask for a new replacement, and see if they'll let you test it before you leave for the audio problem (all 3 of my Rezounds had it at varying levels of annoyingness), and the charger issue. That definitely should not be happening, and a quick Google search shows that it's not a known bug or anything.

    Just got my s2 its amazing all I can say.

    On another note, has anyone thought that if a RTS was ported to high end android devices like Age Of Empires II that an insanely large amount of money would be made? I would buy it..and like seriously, whats stopping it. Hardware is for sure not a limiting factor!

    controls. RTS games are all about the timing and pacing, and you cant work fast on a touchscreen.


    sure the games could run, but then you'd need a mouse at least, and preferably a keyboard...

    That's something to think about but I'm sure with some modifying they could at least dumb it down a little to accommodate for touch interface.

    Thanks - that doesn't sound very much different than the LG Ally I already have.

    Damn it, my Google Nexus has a horrible purple tint on greys. The higher the brightness, the less it shows, but at minimum brightness it is super obvious, even more so in a dark room. I think I have the banding issue too but idk what that really means, but I think I have it (vertical and horizontal lines that are darker on a solid color)

    It seems like a common problem, so I warn all Google Nexus owners here do do this:

    1. Go in Settings --> Display --> Brightness
    2. Set it to the lowest possible with auto-brightness unchecked
    3. Go to http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/black.php with your phone
    4. Make sure there is no purple or reddish tint

    For banding,

    I'll have to look into this later. I think my Incredible had it as well, and it's just what OLED does at a low brightness.

    Many say that they have exchange between 2~4 times and finally got a good one

    LePan II 9.7" 4:3 aspect ration tablet

    This table has been getting good reviews, and for those who like a more square feel it seems good.

    LePan I

    This one is the older generation, it can sometimes go down to 170~180$ from time to time
