I just bought a phone, but it is not Android
Please excuse the ignorance, but this seemed like the place to ask this question.
I'm jumping from Sprint to Verizon at the end of this year. I've had nothing but problems with my Hero syncing to an exchange server, which was originally dismissed by tech professionals as "an issue that andriod has only recently fixed" circa two years ago.
This said, what would be recommended as far as an android smart phone which has few or no issues syncing with exchange?
Budget is reasonable (less than $300 with rebates for starting a new plan, which is basically anything). Phone battery life and voice quality play a larger role than the newest set of features.
So, any suggestions?
I am in love with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
Nexus S you mean?
i just talked with someone last night that says they get horrilbe battery life with a brand new one, keeping network disabled. not rooted of course, but still. that's not normal is it?
Jr whats your current rom?
Have you been able to sync to an exchange server with it? I ask because the phone is excellent, but if it doesn't sync then all those shiny bells and whistles (audible drooling) aren't worth much to me.
Said I like it doesn't mean I have one
See, I read "I'm in love with my Samsung Galaxy Nexus"
makes more sense now lol, I doubted you acquired one early LOL
I'd love to have one.. Waiting on playing with the Nexus when it his Verizon stores.. Make sure my upgrade is worth the money..
But, on a good note.. My droid Incredibale upgraded last night to Gingerbread... I like the calculator..

Mik just came out with a solid new build. Just sharing the awesome-sauce!
I'm waiting for the first Oxygen 4.0 ROM to surface
Ok this is for all you OG droid users!
Steel Droid 9 has been released on Gingerbread 2.3.7!! It is super smooth but does not include Prop modder. This is OK because below is a link to the Prop modder APP that allows you to do the same as you would in roms like Cush and Liquid!!!

Really diggin' MIUI - love it when a new update comes out every Friday.
I installed 1.11.11 yesterday and it lagged my device so bad that it literately took 20 seconds to go screen to screen. I rebooted and flashed back PE 4.2 until SD 9 came out last night!
Retiring my nearly 2 year old Nexus One. To be fair on the phone I have never had the same phone for so long, and I would be happy enough to keep using it if something significantly better hadn't come out.
Sadly for my nexus one, the Galaxy Nexus is out, it is much better, and mine arrives on Monday
of course I will still use my nexus one possibly as the control for some home automation stuff I'm looking at making.
Not bad brandon, not bad at all. Quite smooth.
Let me know your thoughts after a couple days. Im interested.
WOW! What crappy phone do you have?
Nope not crappy, its just all the bloatware MIUI puts into its roms. You can see that CM7, Liquid, and others are around 70-80MB but MIUI is like 110MB. I have a OG droid OCed to 1100mhz and it does very well on quadrant. It wont keep up with a dual core but gets higher scores than a EVO 4G
I honestly think we need a separate thread for best android games and apps
It's not a matter of being crappy, Moto Droids are a case-by-case trial and error with running roms, what rom one wouldnt mind running another would be crapshoot and you could sit, tweak the rom for days, it still wont run right. Take for instance, my Droid doesn't like running CushZero, whereas Brandon's Droid LOVES it. Mine loves MIUI Brandon's doesn't.
Check Amazon Appstore, they usually have a free paid app of the day.
New to the androids... My question is there any benefits to changing my new droid? I know that is really open ended, but I don't really want to OC it.
In my opinion, rooting is done so you have full control over what is on your phone. Remove crap you don't use and stuff
