    Now I'm considering the HTC One as it's only a little bit more per month and was voted by Tech Radar as the best phone they've ever reviewed. 1080p screen and 2GB RAM, vs 720p and 1GB on the Huawei.

    I highly recommend the htc brand. I've dealt with samsung, motorola, and htc for android phones and htc is the top. I have an evo lte which is similar but not as good as the one. Do it. :)

    False alarm. Turns out the price I thought I'd be paying (£36 pm) was the "new customer" price. Loyal customers have to pay £39 per month instead. I went with the Huawei as it was still only £26.

    The last couple of days my phone has been draining the battery real quick. The culprit was the app for swedish ebay, which for some reason used a whole lot of CPU time, and it seems it made use of the mobile connection when the phone was in sleep so WiFi was not on. No data was moved really, it just used power.

    Dunno what happened there.

    Because my girlfriend's in a plan and I'm just 'cheap' with a prepaid sim, I always have her S4 as my hotspot for my S3 here at work. :D :laugh:

    Pity the Htc One is an awesome phone. Had mine now for about 4 month and it's easily the best handset i have ever had.

    s4 is fucking sweet. i cant even tell its 1080p, cause the 720p on the s3 looks the same to me.


    one fun fact: get 80 facebook messages while phone is off, turn phone on. that 'bleep' noise becomes a dubstep song.

    buy them when they're a gen old. galaxy S3 4G models are ~$400 new here now, vs 600-800 for the S4.

    i buy them a gen old, use them, wait til i have two of them and then trade them in for a newer one :p

    I just got a decent phone... a Gnex and it's been a lot better then the ZTE POS I used to have that didn't have a working mic (had to use a BT headset for months) and it also barely retained signal)

    Did you have to flash a different kernel for the undervolting?

    Cool. I assume that one is gs4 specific? I need to do something about the battery life on my nexus 4

    yes, they're always device specific. the XDA forums are a great place to start - also grab 'wake lock detector' off google play, helps you find out whats waking up the cpu from idle (and causing all your battery drain)

    using a stock android, non rooted, non flashed Xperia ZL
    a very nice phone, good screen, good battery life, nice camera, and very compact.

    im giving it a 64GB microSD ultra, and no lags at all
