    My HTC Sensation XE. Got to love the red accents. Upgraded from a Desire a few months ago and it was like day and night.

    Currently running a Sense 4.0 / ICS 4.0.3 custom ROM and OCed from 1.5 to 1.83GHz :D

    Whoa, what happened to that SGS3? It pains me to just look at that screen.

    Would you like another custom kernel to choose from, Trigger?

    Bricked is VERY nice. I'll try to port over my kernel from the Rez for yours.

    Looking forward to it. :D

    I've tried a few kernels over the time I had this phone and Bricked is by a wide margin the best and most stable. I was having random reboots with my previous kernel (I can't remember which) even at stock speeds, after flashing Bricked it has been rock solid.

    Guys I need help.....

    I know nothing about android and phones in general, I have a choice between two -

    Samsung Galaxy S2 or Sony Xperia T

    Can you tell me the positive and negative features of both and if one of them is a definite superior phone to the other one, thanks.

    Xperia T definately some of the benefits are:

    1280x720p screen vs 800x480p
    1.5Ghz Snapdragon dual core which is faster than the 1.2 Exynos the S2 has
    13mp camera on the back vs 8mp
    1080p recording vs only 720 i believe
    NFC vs no NFC

    Sony should also support android updates much better than Samsung do. Xperia T has 4.1.2 i believe or you can always go the custom rom route and get the latest 4.2.1

    Get the Xperia T :D

    DROID RAZR MAXX here. I love it. Big enough I can see (I'm old) but not too big. Ive only had it since Oct 12' but I work outdoors in all weather so its holding up good. One last thing is these Batteries are awesome! I can go 2 days and never charge. :rockout:

    I originally wanted a OB for it but they were out at the time so I took this one and have really liked it. Its slim, very sturdy, and has a really nice simi rubbery grip. And I really like the kickstand when watching vids etc while eating etc on the job.

    PS if the pic looks funny blame my daughter and her iphone. :laugh: My phone does very nice pics too from what I can tell. Of course I said I was old and I do wear glasses. :ohwell:

    Ended up taking back the Lumia 920 (first phone pic on this thread) after having a bunch of problems with it. Now that the Lumia 925 is coming, I may move back to Windows Phone, well see.

    Xperia T has better features, and better build quality from Sony. Samsung may have a lot of service centers aroun but they charge a lot of money, even for little things.

    +1 I'd just be careful when doing software updates as there was an update a while back that bricked my phone. Happened to a whole heap of other people too but I got a new phone from Sony at no charge.

    yes do that upgrade after 10 months. you'll get a brand new phone XD

    Nokia replaced mine once as well. the ear piece on the phone stopped working and they didnt have any one in the local service center or the parts to fix it, so they gave me a replacement in 2days. brand new. sealed.

    Here is my Samsung Galaxy S2 4G version, not your standard S2 either.

    Specs:

    1.5GHz dual core, not your normal 1.2GHz
    4.5inch screen, not your normal 4.3
    Has NFC, normal S2 doesn't have.
    Bigger battery lasts me up to 4 days.

    Its basically an S3 but in S2 clothing lol
