See my System Specs.
i had several case where the memory card corrupted, and i just think that its from crappy memory card since branded memory card never get any err at all
Thats only part of the problem - I have never bought or used 'unbranded' memory cards - Ive always went with Kingston or Sandisk. The Lexar i used was more of a gamble that paid off, For some reason they were going cheap on amazon so i bought one to try out and its never given me issues. I may try getting a 64Gig Lexar but then again thats more money leaving my pocket that i dont really wish to spend
got my note III and loving it, would love to do a review comparing the S1/2/3/4 N1/2/3, but just dont have the time.
summary of thoughts on the N3:
similar shape and design to the S2, of all things.
lighter than expected, making it not feel too large.
screen is beyond amazing for games, angry birds and such look incredible without a single jaggy to be seen.
movies, TV shows, youtube - all amazing on-screen, or via MHL output.
USB 3.0 support is nice, but feels barely used - charges at same speed be it USB 2.0 or 3.0
no UHS support for high speed memory cards is a mild downer
S-pen alternates between useful and useless depending on how you use the phone
yep, all i can say if you just use it for saving pic and songs you could use local brand, but dont expect too much about their performance
and in here its a little bit hard to get worldwide brand on local shops, sometimes i feel sorry if someone use it on highend phone
i use sandisk class 4, its kinda old but so far it performs pretty well
on the SD card topic, i use a 32GB samsung - and use EX file explorer to access my NAS, with a shortcut saved on my homescreen.
when i charge the phone, i tell it to cut the contents of the DCIM folder across to the NAS, so my storage never even gets close to full.
Htc oneplus is so sexy. But they took away the microsd slot and thats kind of a deal breaker for me. Gonna have to think real hard about the oneplus or the oppo find 7. Specs are almost the same anyway
woooo rooted my note III without tripping KNOX/voiding warranty. much happier with it now. very tweaked, many debloat.
looks almost identical too, IMO id go for the oppo
Nice, what did you use [might try to convince my brother since he got one ]
kingo root. you install the samsung drivers for the note 3 (generic, available everywhere), run kingo's .EXE file on the PC - and click go. near the end it mentions installing a custom recovery, you cancel that and you're all good. root without voiding knox warranty. if you install the custom recovery knox gets tripped, and it only works on older 4.3 firmwares - 4.4 cant be rooted without upsetting knox.
D'oh, i think he just updated to 4.4 but not sure, he's coming later on today [maybe?] so ill check then
he can still root, but depending on your local laws, KNOX void = warranty void.
well thanks google play, here is the list of the Android devices i had, i still have the U20i/Folio100/U8180/P7 and the XT890 (Razr i) is my main phone

and a little video about a neat game
quite fun to play initial buy is required and ingame microtransaction isnt completely needed to enjoy the game, most of the option are cosmetical. the Design and music seems to be inspired from Persona 4 (or a total lookalike i should say ... but not like Gameloft's clones of aAa title xD)
bonus : totally compatible with the X86 architecture of my Razr i
Anyone try Deerhunter 2014 for android? I mean really? Horrible. Try and take on the Deerhunter 2005 name.......
i love the service it runs in the background to download ads and spam notifications!
ughh is the Z2 ever gonna be released
pre order or order on the official sony website i read somewhere ... but i can't remember
weelll pre-ordering doesn't work for me, even if the manufacturer's website has middle-east it's just gonna be UAE and not Bahrain, i'm already waiting for it to reach our carriers "this month" but even they don't know when exactly
It's launch also happens to be delayed everywhere else as i think i read somewhere it was first released in April in "select asian markets" only.......
my idle battery drain overnight, on note 3
The new Batm... i mean XBMC release seems fun to play with, both on PC and Android
Hmmm.... so if i ran an android device (say, an S3 with a dead screen) dedicated to the TV, i could remote control it with another android device for media playback?
Have not tried doing that yet, but it looks possible from what they wrote in "Improved UPnP capabilities"
( flies out to try.....) EDIT: IT WORKSSSS
But First create different profiles for each device, then right clicking on whatever you want to play choose play using...
managed to play music files from my PC to my S3
ofc all devices have to be on the same network, and i've seen a setting where you can control xbmc from a webserver too , just got to settings> services
does it work for MKV files? tempting to try it out if it works for all filetypes via the software decoding, Upnp tends to be very limited in my experience
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.
