    No, he means the batteries Samsung uses get better over time, that's how they work. I don't have the actual article/post/information that says this, but I know it has been said.
    I seriously doubt that since they use the same exact battery tech as every phone manufacturer has used for years.

    Well, that is usually what everyone said and I do believe there was some article or official information I think, I may be wrong though.

    On Verizon phones, I've noticed that you need a network data connection to download MMS (3G/4G/1X). If you're not connected to them, the download either fails or perpetually stalls.

    Is there any other phone I should consider other than the S2 and galaxy note? Nexus I sort of ruled out due to not expandable memory and the note looks more pleasing to me, just wondered if there's any other phones I should atleast look at.
    I get paid tonight so will order before I go to bed.

    I've been looking at reviews and they're saying it's no worse than the S2 after the burn in stage.
    Plus I've been using a desire HD so it can really only get better given the desire HD's terrible battery life.

    Just need to sell my desire HD now, peak condition, how 300 RRP, I reckon 150 is a bargain.

    Problems on your side
    Used TouchWiz Launcher, LauncherPro, LauncherPro Sense Mod, MIUI Launcher and ADW Launcher
    Go Launcher was the easiest to set up

    Screens 3.2" correct? Any difficult to type on?
    I have a 3 inch Sony Xperia Mini Pro, no difficulty typing on it (keyboard, on-screen keyboard) and I have pretty big thumbs. Also, the Mini Pro in Landscape mode keyboard size is roughly the equivilant to the Galaxy Note in Portrait Mode.

    I compared it, with those dummy display phones

    One of the softkeys on my HTC Incredible 2 phone is getting a crack on it. Verizon will only let me get a refurbished phone as a replacement because it's after 30 days. Should I get one that may or may not have problems or just suck it up for another 2 years?

    I've seen alot of mixed reviews about Verizon refurbished phones.

    I won't lie though, the first design would be awesome, if possible. Would be better if it weren't a simple box with a screen on it though.

    Just flashed to ICS 4.0.3 today. The new UI is very slick, and the OS is very responsive. New features are nice. Sliding notifications away, one of my favorite CM features, is now built-in. The settings menu has been rearranged and improved, and I noticed some nice minor tweaks (you can slide unlock straight to camera, you can pulldown notifications without slide unlock (I imagine this is because I have no PIN yet).

    So far I like it.

    Except the regulator used in new Samsung phones doesn't require calibration. So it won't.
    This is partially true in saying it doesn't require proper calibration.

    Also @Mr. Smartass
    Barnacle wifi teather is my favourite for that.

    When using gameboid, or any gameboy emulator, It automatically uses texture filtering (blurring it to make it look "better")
    How to disable?
