  1. In the market looking to get a new phone. I currently own a iPhone 6 and getting either the iPhone 7+ or Samsung Note 7 (once the exploding battery issue is fixed). I mostly use my phone to listen to music, Binge on YouTube and emailing. I like all the Samsung Note 7 has to offer but I'm hesitant with it because you can't organize music like iTunes, and I'm also hesitant towards the iPhone 7+ because they effing removed the headphone jack. Any opinion/input would help, thanks.
  2. I have a Galaxy Note 3. I just switched from T-Mobile to ATT. While with T-Mobile I used a pretty stable ROM but the dev stopped supporting it. I'm getting my ROMs from XDA, so now that I'm with ATT, do I flash ROM's from the Galaxy Note 3 T-Mobile section or ATT section or does it not matter? Figured I ask here before going forum surfing over at XDA.
  3. I'm not much of a reviewer, and this is my first android phone. Also my first large phone.. so keep that in mind. Before this I had iphones (3gs and 5) I have had this phone about 2 days and I absolutely love it. I am so glad I chose this over another iphone. Not only was it half the price of an iphone, it has double the specs! Pros: - runs cyanogen - camera is pretty nice - very solid feeling - screen quality is great - battery life is great. I'm at 60% after a day of medium use - looks very slick - it is indeed a phone Cons: - a little tough for me to hold, but easier than I expected. Sometimes my finger wraps around and touches the screen - I'm left handed and the buttons are designed for righties - it is a new phone so case selection is limited. I have a tendency to drop my phones and prefer an otterbox - no sd slot, not really an issue for me though overall I really love this phone. Great upgrade from an iphone. The android os is perfect for my needs
  4. I'm on a hunt for a new phone. My choices: Motorolla Moto X Nokia Lumia 1520 or 1020 Samsung Note 3 I hope to see some prices on this guys slightly cheaper during the holidays. My budget is less than $300 (at very maximum $400). No contact. Factory unlocked. Any ideas or recommendations?
  5. I just bought this phone http://youtu.be/Y-2fK-ka1M0
  6. So I need to save ALL data from my iPhone on PC, including notepad notes, phone book contacts, everything else that is not in "iTunes back-up". Plus I need it to be legible. Please Help. I know there are tons of software on the Internet, but I need one that works 100% and doesn't come with some malware or viruses.
  7. Ok, so for the last year I downgraded my phone to just a plain texting phone, no data plan, wanted to save money. Well my wife and I started thinking at least one of us should prolly have a smart phone for those handy times we can look up directions somewhere on the fly, and search things online when we're out at the store or something like that. So I may be getting another smartphone sometime in the near future. With that, I come here asking you guys who have Windows phones if you really like them? I know the app store lacks so far in comparison to Android and Apple. So should I just stick with Android? Do the Windows phones have some sort of more functionality between your PC and phone than the android ones do? And finally, suggestion of phones. Good ones, bad ones, which ones has everyone had issues with right away. Thanks for the help in advance!
  8. Yo I'm trying to put one of the old pokémon games (silver, gold, crystal) on my cell phone, a Nokia Asha 201, but i have no idea how to do it, or if it's even possible at all. Any experts in the house?
  9. So, my phone went kaput a few months back. HTC Arrive. Windows phone. Still one of the (the?) best reviewed phones @ Sprint. But alas, first gen, Sprint treated it like a dog, pulled it six or so months back from their lineup, went all in with the iPhone a year ago, and now got bought out by a foreign telecom. Supposedly they are getting a new Windows phone in six months or so. A little late. So, with the other half's parent's in town for the week, and the fact that it's their dime for our phones (the benefits for being "IT support" for a law firm...) we decided to kick the tires on new phones yesterday; ETF be damned. AT&T store. College town. Friday mid-afternoon, and then again Friday evening. Strangely empty at night apparently due to college student's rabid appetite for Skyfall for some reason... So, some thoughts. Two years ago I wouldn't have touched Android on a phone. Clunky at best. Today? Damned impressed by Samsung Galaxy S2/3, latest HTC handsets as well. Perplexed at who can easily use the Samsung Galaxy Note models and if they could even fit in anyone's pocket. Pretty sure our guy helping us at the store had a Samsung note in his button down shirt breast pocket. That phone dominated that pocket. And I hope he never bends over at the waist while on a non-carpeted surface. Android is selling 3 to 1 as the operating system for smartphones right now. Those HTC EVO phones were popular two years back but honestly Samsung has probably done the most to bring out the best in Android. The operating system has come a long way on phones and it shows. I've got a couple HP Touchpads here flashed with cyanogen so I'm more than familiar with Android. But honestly it looks and feels better on those new phones. iPhone 5? One small corner of the store. No one entering the store ever looked at them. I took a look. The latest iPhone has been described as "stale". Pretty much it. The whole thing is due for a major refresh. Not sure what else can be done on the hardware side (aside from bigger/better), for most smartphones when you get down to it, but the software looks/feels anchored in where it started from years ago. iPhone 6 is going to be more than slightly important for Apple. They had a Samsung Windows 8 tablet at the store as well. Impressive. I don't know where all the bile is coming from. Not sure when my upgrade will happen but have zero worries about it if/when it comes. What we all did end up getting were the Nokia 920 flagship Windows 8 Phones. Two whites, two reds. Yellow looked good. Black was matte, a little conservative. Cyan (blue) is online only - none in store. Feel in hand is just at the limit of comfortable size. Smaller would feel better but no problems here at the end of the day. Compared to the HTC Evo 4G, which this phone is probably best compared to for shape and size, it is just under a centimeter longer, maybe a half a centimeter wider, and just a little less thick. The phone is a thick Hershey bar, just not as long and a bit wider. I have no idea what drugs the reviewers (looking at Verge for one instance) were on complaining about weight. Just because many other phones are lighter doesn't make this phone's weight a problem. So your phone is now half as heavy? And? There is a point where weight no longer is anything to remark on. Technically it weighs as much as our old HTC Arrives but this phone, due to it's shape, feels much lighter. HTC EVO 4g = 170 grams, Nokia 920 = 185 grams. Clearly a horrific weight that will crush most mortals. Build is fantastic. A well refined mini-tank. Screen is great. Camera is as advertised. On the hardware side there is nothing to complain about - it's all there. 4G phone of course and we've got that in Harrisonburg but LTE is arriving pretty soon as well and the phone is naturally ready for that too. Sprint is still stuck on 3G here, and in most places. Another knock on them. Wireless network does do the 5ghz range so if your home router rocks that go for it. Windows Phone 8 is a really nice upgrade. All the tiles can now not only be placed where ever you want but can have their shape altered as well - your choice of mini square, large square, or large rectangle. Takes all of a second to move and change. Nokia perks include their GPS maps solution which is pretty damned fantastic. DL'd all of the North Am maps last night. 2 gigs, still leaving me somewhere north of the mid-20's in gigs free after you account for the operating system and those maps. The Nokia City lens is also pretty alright. Overlays stores/items of interest when in camera view. Kind of like a live, in-person Google street view with data overlay. All the other stuff is there too. Panorama photos, software lens, voice to search, use screen with gloves, etc. You can and maybe have read all about Windows Phone 8. No sense in recapping here. In many respects phone choice is philosophical. I had a Dell Axim (couple of variants) throughout the 00's. So with Android, it has a been-there-done-that feel to me, especially on phone platforms with the gadget metaphor and even more now that styluses are apparently making a comeback. I'm not saying the old Windows Phonestuff and Android are the same; just similar in intent. Apple is still just an icon based one-app-at-a-time thing going on. Yeah, yeah, multitasking. Still punch an icon to do stuff. At least Android pushes info out on the main screens. With WP7/8 the information is front and center. You can't run from it. Some of it is icons to launch apps but others push data to you in real-time. Or, displays the data you have currently. The photo square pushes favorite photos, animated, out to you as the launch icon. It is a compelling change, at least to me. Sure, you can argue that Android also has the info front and center thing if you want it, and yeah, I was tempted with the new Android phones, but the WP8 philosophy merging icons and information - for me I like it. As a comparison, the project management software industry is a harsh mistress. So many competing solutions. Basecamp, Freedcamp, Teamwork, Do, and on and on and on. Seriously hilarious how many choices you have out there. All to manage stuff to do. Some folks peeled off from Facebook a year or so ago and decided on a very different metaphor for project management. Intelligent lists but not just that. Also the idea that you can't run and hide from the lists. They are always right there. Telling you what needs to be done. Discussion, additional information on the tasks? Sure, but it's still all right there telling you what needs to be done. Asana is both a disconcerting change but also refreshing and glorious at the same time. With WP8 you get the info, now, in your face and in many respects is the same underlying metaphor as Asana. The computer feel is relegated. The complexity is relegated. When I played with the Android phones it really took me back to the Axim days; the tweaking, the unending configuration possibilities. But also the feel that it as a computer. One problem some reviewers had with Windows Phone was that it seemed "too simple". People almost expect to tinker and play with the phone. The phone isn't so much a tool to get calls, txt, email, etc and then get out of the way. The phone is the thing itself, a hobby, a fetish. I'd argue that Windows Phone might be the first phone to be like a game console. I'd also argue that it may not matter in two years. Windows phone having the actual windows core as it's base. Wondering if Android and Linux get a little closer together. Wondering with the level of CPU performance increasing in phones whether we will end up carrying our computers, our *real* computers, with us in our pockets. If our displays will be separate from the CPU system all of the time (tablet screens paired to phone, phone powering 32" desktop display with addon-gaming GPU). Weird times but hella fun for us. Did you know you could do the touch thing on Dell Axims, with your fingers? There are articles to be written about how it was all there for the taking between Microsoft and their hardware partners but neither one ended up pushing the others to greater things. Hackers pushed the platform, no one cared. Then Apple blew the doors open and now Google can make Nexus flagship devices but Microsoft gets pummeled for doing the same thing. Strange times... Cost for a Nokia 920 under two year contract is $99, and they throw in the wireless charging plate for free (we'll be getting ours in a week or so - not @ stores yet). A 32 gig phone, wireless charging, Nokia perks... It's a hard push for customers and it worked in our instance. $100 to $200 more for any of the Android phones I saw that i'd want to get under the same two year terms. And probably no wireless charging (a pleasant addiction once you get started with it - HP Touchpad cradle does this - most nice). Keeping the phone? I've got 30 days or so. If I change my mind I can go back and drop another $100/$200 and grab a Samsung android something or other. Right now don't see that happening. Note for those flipping their phones using the AT&T trade-in program. Pretty alright. Our HTC Arrives were priced $10 less than the eBay average sell of around $80 (so $70). I'll take that any day to avoid setting up an auction and eating eBay/PayPal fees and having to pack and ship. You may have similar/same luck in trade-in pricing on your phones.
  10. So the time has finally come for me to get my second smart phone in January once my contract expires with Verizon. I figured first of all I would want to stay on Verizon simply because I'm a bigger fan of Android, and if I ultimately decide to get the Iphone I can always get it on Verizon now. So the two really good flagship phones seem to be either the Samsung Galaxy Nexus as well as the Motorla Droid RAZR. I was wondering if anyone was looking at either of these, or had any experience that they would be willing to help me make a decision with. From everything I've seen the Galaxy Nexus seems to be the better phone for right now simply because it has the latest version of the Android OS, Ice Cream Sandwich. Yet it also seems to have a few bugs that might have already been fixed. Your input is appreciated, All of the nons
  11. So i recently had the *cough* pleasure of chatting up my co-worker about the current handheld leading OS's. fanboy gonna fan. Needless to say right now the tech industry is big on Android. however the current leading consumer device is the iPhone. I have a iPhone 4S and i really do like it. it may not have the open source and expandability of the current Android phones; but it really does deliver some nice features. I have always found the music and video playback on iOS to be much more responsive and easier to use, not to mention it has the best current GPU in any phone right now (which i'm a fan of, because of some pretty decent games in the app store.) Siri is a nice touch and an interesting conversation starter but her current availability is gimped in Canada (no GPS directions of any kind .) Jail-breaking is also a factor, seeing as i can enjoy the delicious free apps to my hearts content . I hope i don't sound like too much of a consumer dip-shtick in this post. also i normally hate apple and their crappy Operating system, but their hardware is really nice (when i'm not over paying for it.) i would love to read about peoples views on the OS's and which phone they currently have/ are thinking about getting.
