    I was very young and my English was terrible. I had no clue what I had to do. I kept losing the races because I had no clue where to go and I was more interested in killing everyone in sight

    The game was a lot of fun because of the killing, but besides the movement keys I understood nothing about the game

    The RAZR is absolute junk when it comes to custom ROMs, I'd say don't buy any Motorola android phone at all and just consider something like the S2 or the O2X if you don't mind rooting and installing custom ROMs.

    I "unlocked" my galaxy s2 i777, so how do i get ICS?
    Since everyone is being a meanie and not responding to you, I'll try.

    You'll have to choose a ROM. I chose CM9 on my i777, but AOKP is another great option. I don't know the exact differences.

    This guide: http://www.theandroidsoul.com/cyanog...llation-guide/
    is what I used to put CM9 on my phone. You'll have to essentially restore your phone before you do it, so make sure to do a backup on whatever you want to keep. (SMS can be backed up with an app). Just follow that guide and you'll have CM9 ready after an hour or two.

    Pretty decent phone, my bro has one. Quite cheap, no issues, but it is kinda sluggish sometimes (especially the camera takes a while to load) but then I have a Galaxy S2 so I'm used to lighting speed. Also official Android 4.0 is available for it already (through the desktop updater tool), so that would be a plus too.

    I've had a nightmare with my first S2, which was randomly restarting and nothing would fix it and it took me a few months to get my money back since the warranty repair people were ignorant monkies.
    But my second one has absolutely zero issues and it's the best phone I've ever had.

    Just go for the one you like better, HW wise they're almost the same and by now, any mass issues should be fixed.

    I am confused as to the meaning you gentlemen are assigning to the word "brick". Do you simply mean a phone that is thick and maybe ugly? In common parlance, I believe the word refers to a phone that has been rendered useless by some kind of malfunction, usually firmware related.

    Never trust reviews, seriously. Go to a shop and check the device out. If you like it, buy it.
    Before buying, examine it, if you can.

    A brick is a thick and ugly phone, a bricked phone is a phone rendered useless by a firmware related malfunction.

    so i hear the one X is still better than the SIII
    I might as well do a breakdown of One X vs SIII.

    Display:
    Yes, the GS3 has SAMOLED HD. Yes, it is good. However, since we're comparing at stratospheric levels, S-LCD2 is better at everything but black levels, response time, and possibly outdoor visibility depending upon whether or not the screens have lower reflectivity levels.

    SoC:
    For the US this doesn't matter at all because all US GS3s will have Snapdragon S4 deal with it. Internationally, the Exynos is faster than the Tegra 3 and will probably have better power efficiency to some extent, but if both are running equally optimized ROMs (CM9) then it's close enough to not really matter. If you play shitloads of emulators and 3D games though, and will do so for a good two years on the same device, go with the GS3 Exynos and use Chainfire3D to get Tegra games.

    Battery life:
    GS3 will probably have the upper hand because it just has a bigger battery.

    Aesthetics/Industrial Design:
    The GS3 is kind of plain, but apparently is very ergonomic and fits in the hand. The One X may look much better with it's unibody and all the various design touches HTC has done. (drilled speaker holes, etc) For the most part however, this is personal opinion.

    Camera:
    The GS3 probably has the better sensor here, but it's marred by crappier optics. HTC One X has the same sensor as the GS2, but with much better low light performance. Basically the biggest issues with the One X is just the fact that HTC overcompressed images and video to try and reduce the space taken by them. The quality of the images and video is probably better, but will need either HTC to release an update that reduces compression of JPEG or stores in PNG, and to raise the bitrate of videos to at least 20 Mbps, or for xda to have a mod that accomplishes this.

    Misc:
    MicroSD will be big in your decision. If you care about microSD enough because you really do use a shitload of data, go with the GS3 if you are outside of the US. If you are in the US on Sprint, the Evo LTE will basically match the GS3, with the only differences coming down to software and 100 mAh of battery

    tl;dr Judging purely on tangible advantages the GS3 probably wins, but HTC's intangibles can make all the difference in the world.

    same here, I must have a microSD card slot.

    In other news, there was that Windows Phone 7 vs. other phones contest at a Rogers store offering $100 if you beat them. Saw a Phone 7 battle it out against an iPhone 4S. The Phone 7 cheated (technically).

    What was the contest about? And wouldn't it be pretty easy to get that 100$ then?

    Here's how Windows Phone 7 cheated (technically).

    The contest was to see who can write something to Twitter and Facebook faster.

    This is the iPhone approach: Go to Twitter, write something, submit. Go to Facebook, write something, submit.

    This is the Windows Phone 7 approach: Type something, press send. Bam, it's sent to every social media site you setted up.

    Here's an analogy of this: You are going onto a flight to let's say New York City, so is the other guy (with the Windows Phone 7). You wait in line, get your bags checked, go through security, and get on your flight. You arrive to New York City. The other guy on the other hand skips the lines, skips the security and skips the flight and still arrives to New York City, faster than you, therefore practically teleporting to New York City.

    This is why Windows Phone 7 won, instead of going to each app, there's a unified social media system that just sends everything off on every social media site you selected before, saying the same message.

    You can beat this if you had an app that can do what Windows Phone 7 did.
