Never knew you could do that, how do you go about designating what does what?
Wouldn't you not always want your phone silent when you're out?
The higher the class, the faster the read and write speed but lower the random read and write. You would want this if you download tonal of stuff or you copy tons of movies, videos and other content into the card often. Or if you swap or add more music consistently and you don't want to wait forever for it to copy over.
Generally I would recommend the higher class cards but those are usually more expensive.
Finally bricked my iPhone and now I actually have real a reason to get a new phone. So to my annoying question that has probably been asked too many times: What should I get?
I've been recommended to get the ZTE Blade 2 but I know fuck all about Android devices. I'm also on a slim-ish budget..
HTC One X Ordered, I ain't leaving you guys just yet <3
So i have the opportunity to take my brothers old Droid 2 and replace my shitty dumbphone, or spend money on a smartphone with verizon new every 2 upgrade, I've never had a smartphone before, and I haven't committed to upgrading yet because for me 30 bucks extra a month is scary.
My question is basically would it be worth it at all to take his Droid 2 for no money or would it just be pretty shitty and old for today's standards?
So I finally got myself a screen protector, it was 5 bucks and it's most likely from some Chinese company supplier of some sort, anyways it doesn’t cover the sensors or front facing camera, Damn. Oh well.
I also found some inexpensive 32GB microSD cards, as low as 40 bucks bit it was out of stock and too low class, 55 for a class 10. Is patriot any good?
How do I get 720/1080p playback without stuttering or freezing?
When I first got my sgs2 it played tron 1080p fine. But when trying to play a 720p episode of southpark it just lags tits. Same thing with my tablet--Galaxy 10.1.
I've tried different players and streaming from my computer but no luck.
I can watch 720p anime on my mini pro with no lag, I'm using MX Video Player with the codec pack app add-on.
And my screen is 480x360 :-(
And yes, I run patriot in my phone and it hasn't caused any problems. If you do some watching at those places I'll guarantee you find a good deal. Right after I got mine a week later a class 10 version of it went on sale for lower.
I wanted to like it, but it was far too much annoyance to deal with. I don't want to micromanage an app drawer. I really liked all the extra features I could tweak under the hood, but honestly it isn't important compared to general usability.
For microSD cards unless you need more than 4 megabytes/sec write speeds, go with SanDisk's class 4. If you want all out performance, find genuine 32 GB class 10 Samsung microSDs. You absolutely have to do a full test of their capacity and test both write and read speeds to ensure you aren't getting ripped off.
I can certify that SanDisk genuine class 4 microSDs should hit around 18 MB/sec read speeds.
I like the copying of content onto the microSD card to be fast so I don't have to wait for it to finish. I'll probably do content dumps and copy over several gigabytes of content. I'm getting 2 MB/s on my 8GB class 2 card I got from my mom's nokia. And this is much of an investment that old las5 me years, beyond my current mini pro and beyond my second phone if possible.
Are there any working and stable ICS MIUI ROMs for the SGS2? If so, could someone link me?
Is Verizon going to get any of HTC's One series of phones? Or am I going to have to switch carriers?
When I move the phone away from my ear the red CANCEL button appears automatically. What is this magic?

Fucking Instagram is still broken on my phone. Trying to process the picture causes a complete lockup. I emailed them about it because it seems like there's no one else in the world who is having this problem and they keep telling me to refer to this 'known bug' from their help center and that they're working on a fix, even though my issue is completely different.
There are even people posting 5 star reviews who use the same phone as me saying it works great, what the fuck is going on?
a custom ROM?
That's a big possibility. Or the ROM itself might be the problem, not your tweak. Check the forum/website (if the ROM has one) for any issues related to Instagram.
But in case you haven't, try deleting Instagram cache. That sometimes does wonders for apps.
My friend got the new HTC One X, gave it to me to have a look at, so I put face unlock on as myself.
took him a while to figure it out.
It amazes me just how much control carriers have over their customers in the US.
I was honestly amazed to learn that some didn't even use SIM cards. When I got my new phone, I got an unlocked one off of Amazon and pulled the SIM from my old phone into the new one.
Also I love how you Americans have these funny carrier exclusive editions of phones - like the carriers realise that they're shit and that only exclusivity could get them any customers.
It does get annoying though - the G2X P999 is almost identical to the 2X P990 but because it isn't there's this split in the modding community that there really shouldn't be.
