For Christmas I got my wife a 32Gb Nexus 7 and it is pretty fast. Great price for a fast tablet.
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.
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.
My mother-in-law got one of my sons a Double Power T711 7" ICS tablet. Damn thing quit working already.
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.
i say get the S3 anyway. they'll have a warranty.
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
I may switch to a nexus 4 anywayz. Anyone wanna buy a GS3?? D
HTC one X is pretty sweat after the update.... I'm loving it!
Wanted a One X, but Verizon chose not to offer any of them, had to settle for a Rezound.... I like it ok, would have preferred the One series.... enjoy it.. and choke on it ya bum!!!!
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.
Anybody else on King Kang with the Verizon S3?
I have a HTC Evo 3D
HTC One X
Samsung Galaxy S3
sadly I find I use my iPhone 4S the most
true, very sad I've got an evo lte, and i love it loved my OG evo as well... HTC imo makes great phones.
May I ask why is that?
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
theres already replacements for installous that work just as good/better.
Id look at gettin the oneX but theres no memory expansion slot. that to me is a critical feature
yeah, memory card slot and removable battery is important for me too
Guys, this might be lame, but I have a Samsung Infuse. I love it. It is basically a Galaxy II phone that has a single core processor and a bigger screen. I find it integrates just as well as a iPhone with my iPad, and the battery last forever. Plus, with its very large screen, it is very easy to text with. I know it is not a GS3,and it's screen is on the lower end resolution wise, but it is great. I even like Gingerbread, and I know it is lame. The cost of the phone 9 months ago was free.
