    I guess Galaxy Nexus roms are too early in development. I hate how when someone asks for a rom with good battery life people just fight over what is good.

    Seriously, what the fuck Galaxy Nexus?

    I charged my phone for eight hours until 8am to 100%... went to bed (yay, fucked up sleep-schedule FTW), had the phone in my discarded jeans' pocket... I was laying down to go to sleep and heard "vrrrrt" from my pants...

    I reached in and grabbed my phone -- only to watch the damn thing restart itself for no apparent reason. When it did, Airplane mode was switched on, and couldn't be switched off...

    So I restarted it again, noticed that all was functioning nominal... battery was at 98% and I went to sleep for seven hours.

    When I woke up, my phone was OFF... and wouldn't restart. I had to pop the battery out and reinsert it. The phone booted up, told me that the battery was very low (a red exclamation mark) and told me to connect my charger. Then it switched itself off.

    What the fuck? The battery drained in sleep-mode over the course of 7 hours, from full charge?

    Anyone else getting this glitch?
    Something is using your CPU, check your CPU logs. I forgot how to access them, but still.

    the iPhone 4's screen size is ridiculously small for what it is it feels like.. it's like what 3 somethin inches? This is a definite improvement for their next phone..
    Only good thing is that it fits in your hand. Playing games suck, your thumbs simply block the screen.

    [release][h2]BETA[/h2][/release]
    So we should keep to ourselves and not tell Valve anything?

    Edited:

    I mean, the only way things in the beta get changed is by reporting issues to the creators, by complaining to them. By just dismissing it and saying "IT'S A BETA NOT EVERYTHING IS GONNA WORK," you're going to accomplish nothing and contribute nothing.

    Edited:

    As a matter of fact I've just submitted my review after a full day of playing with it, with suggestions and complaints to the Android market. (I hope they check there, because fuck SPUF.)

    I have a few complaints about this app. Firstly, it goes against the design paradigms set in place by Google. The menus are in strange places which may confuse people. The GUI tries too hard, and as a result looks busy and performs poorly. (There's also some cases of severe color banding in certain areas, when by all rights we should be seeing solid colors for cleanliness and consistency.)

    The chat functions well enough but has quite a bit of measurable delay from PC to mobile, measuring in several seconds. The app does not support group chat when it really should. The chat also has a noticeable impact on my Galaxy S. The chat also ends up in a separate notification in the notifications pane, so more often than not Steam will have two individual icons when it really shouldn't.

    My biggest complaint is that the back button is broken. Instead of exiting my screen and going up a level, it sequentially goes back through all of the pages you've visited. It's very frustrating to use.

    I would also like to be able to view my game library, and perhaps the library of others.

    This is a great concept that has been long overdue. Valve, you should be careful not to drop the ball on this one.
    (3/5 stars.)

    I'm just saying that you're pretty much saying "Oh, it's bad. It needs work." Like it's a finished product even though it was just released into beta.

    Yes, HTC Sense is a heavy skin of Android. Yes, it's love or hate. Yes, this makes Sense much more exciting.

    That's okay. I understand now. It's still in beta and a bit sloppy and unfinished in places. I feel the final release will be very nice though.

    This, I hate when people ask this on XDA, I mean who wouldn't want that? Not like you see people asking "What ROM is good for sucking my battery dry in 10mins".
    I guess in this day in age people are too lazy to experiment on a device that's about choice and customisations.

    Actually, it's a perfectly valid question.

    If a ROM has any serious bugs that break battery life, I don't want to use it as a daily driver.

    Yeah true, like in the case of leaked ICS ROMs for the GS2, but for established ROMs like CheckRom it seems a bit much where it's asked every page.

    My dose of first world problems of the day.

    You guys think that Samsung will soon release a tablet that comes with the Galaxy Note's S Pen technology? Because I really like that thing as an artist, but I already have a Galaxy S2 and doesn't seem that worthy of an upgrade.. However if they released a tablet with the S Pen thing, I think i'd get one.

    I NEED SOME HELP

    Okay so after waiting too long for the ZTE 2.2 update I decided to try to rom upgrade it, but after installing some root shit i aborted it. So now when version 2.2 is officaly out i tried it. But the phone refuses to go into TDM mode, so i can't install it. I tried holding volume up and power on and try to connect to usb to remove root but then i can't find the drivers. I wan't 2.2 BAD for my ZTE, so how do i unroot my phone?

    TLDR: I can't get my ZTE Blade into TDM mode when i try to install android 2.2, I got a root on my phone.

    GO Launcher decided to show 2 of all my games for some reason, so I uninstalled them until there were only 1 of each game left. Now I picked up my phone again, and all the games are gone, along with my saves. Man, I had just made it into the second city in GTA 3 :saddowns:

    I'm guessing that you may need to downgrade your firmware version. If you don't get Radio S-OFF or ENG S-OFF then usually permanent root is not possible with these phones.

    Edited:

    I'm hoping that HTC's focus upon only making a few top-end devices for 2012 will mean that every 2012 HTC phone will be able to get S-OFF.

    Oh, and HTC would do well to benefit from following Google's lead and simply allowing a phone to become s-off by simply typing "fastboot oem unlock".

    Overv still got it for one hell of a good price in my opinion (and dirt cheap compared to the Norwegian price which is around $800 for the SG Nexus).
