    So I bought myself a Galaxy S 3, I seen someone posting above about how the One X beats the S3, but how so? I personally made a decision to never buy HTC again after the disappointment I had in a severe lack of OTA updates with both my Magic and Desire Z so I'm not too bothered, but I'd just like to know people's opinions.
    There's very little difference between the hardware, but the main difference is feel and design, which the One X has an upper hand.

    HTC One X is prettier.
    That's it.

    Can you get into recovery?
    If you can't just reflash the firmware using a tool like odin

    CP doesn't necessarily have to have a victim, it's just that 99.9% of the time it does. The thing with pedos is that they've been demonized to be horrible no matter what, and I don't think that's the case.

    the one x is the best looking and well designed android phone to date but doesnt have the full force of htc behind it like samsung has with the sgs and so it doesnt have as much polish and probably wont have the future support

    How good is the HTC Evo? I am thinking of buying it for $300 and getting the virgin mobile $55 a month plan without a contract. Thank god it doesn't have a contract as I am only 17 and thus can't legally sign a contract .

    I just had a realization today while playing around with my One V: the reason many people think that the iPhone's 3.5" screen is fine is because it has an aspect ratio of 5:4. It makes it much wider, and that horizontal space gives the appearance that there's a lot more room.

    When you take the iPhone's screen and compare it to the One V's (800x480, 15:9) screen, the One V feels much smaller since it's taller.



    I do realize that this post has virtually nothing to do with Android, so I'll add this little snippet: the One V's a solid phone but the screen is slightly too small .

    How can you think of features as a disadvantage? Especially when they actually work

    I can't help but think that Samsung is slowly going the wrong way.

    Rather than more computing power and bigger screens I'd see longer battery run time, RFID(ow whatever it was called) chips and finally a housing that doesn't feel cheap in my hands.

    Don't get me wrong I love my Si9000 but I also see what's wrong with it.

    Today I was in two malls and decided to check out some phones and prices, both in general hardware stores and those owned by operators.
    The first one I saw was Galaxy Note. It looked neat, but it's way too big for my pocket, I was even afraid if S2 is going to fit in, but about this one I have no doubts.
    I also saw an S3. It doesn't really look that bad like on photos.
    And the last thing which I was curious of was the price of S2. The range was about 470-500, while I got it for ~340. There even was a couple looking at it and I was about to tell them to buy it online for a lot less, but I was afraid that a store employee would hear me saying this stuff and I would face the consequences.

    Not really, no. There's nothing impeding you from plugging in your $500 headphones or whatever you "need" to make use of the equalizer. Not to mention it helps you get better clarity out of your cheap/cheap-ish earbuds or whatever. Besides, if it's so useless like you say, why not just leave it alone?

    It's not the headphones that are the problem, it's the DAC in the phone that's cheap as shit.

    It's still better than no equalizer at all IMO, but whatever you say. Still, most of the ROMs for my phone (with the exception being a huge 2 ROMs) don't come with the default player, and I can't install Play Music since I'm not from the US, so PowerAmp is perfectly fine for me.

    No. That's an opinion - the Note is too big for some people.
    The person that said that everyone who bought a Note is an idiot is a retard, though.

    Could anybody here recommend a good ICS ROM and a good kernel for the Verizon Fascinate? It seems like every one I try starts fucking up after a few months. Mine just got caught on an infinite boot loop for no apparent reason so I'm flashing it to stock.

    Edited:

    The more bare bones and stable, the better. I'm not looking for a fancy MIUI implementation that looks nice but crashes every ten seconds and lags to hell.

    Edited:

    Actually I'm probably just going to keep it on stock. I know it will work and I don't even use any apps that require ICS. From there I can get a launcher that mimics ICS and get the nice look I enjoy.
