    do you guys have a screen protector on your phones?

    the s3 allegedly uses gorilla glass... but so did my HTC Thunderbolt... and I definitely noticed scratches once my protector fell off

    I am stunned that some people appear to love their Playstation(1,2,3) or Xbox(360) more than I love the Denver Broncos.
    Trust me, it's sad

    Definitely put a protector on it. I surely did.

    There are more expensive ones which keep the sheen of the screen quality. The cheaper ones definitely make the screen look a bit cheap.

    I got a matte one on mine. It tones down the street quality a little but it's worth it . Some people go commando but I just know I'd regret it soon after when I get an inevitible hair line stratch

    My Experia U had a screen protector in the box, seems good quality to me, has a ton of scratches on it.

    Awesome ^ My Experia U is unlocked. I prefer to buy my phones outright.
    I have no issues with it and when I need it lasts 5 days in stand by.

    Sony is the best at what they're good at, they could be better at other areas but same can be said about all companies really
    Its just in this day and age what they are lacking is what needs improving
    I think you'll agree when it comes to hardware and engineering Sony are top of their class, but are lacking in the other areas like software which is a key at the moment

    Yes and no. This topic wise, I have been liking their new phones. I almost would get one if it were on Verizon.

    Phone wise the way the phones are built and designed are top stuff, funny enough as it is software, go over to XDA and you'll see the love Sony has for its UI, but thats more to do with the cosmetic look of it
    What I find with Sony products in general is they hit all those high note and are followed by a " but "
    Its the same with T.V's, Samsung & LG are all known to be the TV'S to get, yet T3 or What has the Sony HX853 for the best in picture & 3D with even the HX753 ranking high and the prices are equal on other sets for the other companies
    As I'm about to buy a new TV I know the price difference and its only worth looking else where if ya buying a mid to low range as the other companies do offer a better deal for your buck

    Sony's phone efforts this year have been pretty good. Seems they wanna take that industry a bit more seriously since buying out the Ericsson half. The new Xperia phones are badass from what I've seen, and Sony is playing around with Android more than the other manufacturers it seems.

    Anyways, can someone recommend me a solid rom for my S2? Something close to vanilla ICS and fast, not too harsh on battery . Kinda bored of the stock samsung ICS firmware so looking to flash to something else

    Is it worth to trade my Galaxy Nexus for S3? I mean, I really like the bigger screen and since there are no virtual buttons, I would gain a few more inches, no?!

    Have you tried both? I am leaning towards build quality. Nexus 4 also looks good, but its screen is yellowish in comparison to my current phone(from YouTube).

    Too bad Apple doesn't make android phones, I like their materials, but iOS sucks.

    But Sony does.

    The Xperia phone builds are nothing but solid. Check the Xperia P for example. I mean, you may not like it as a whole, but they;re solid phones.

    Yep.

    Not only that, the non-metal bits are solid and firm as well. Even down to the older model Sony Ericsson (prior to the separation) Ray etc.

    Just check some the of the ones out here:
    http://store.sony.com/c/Sony-Cell-Ph..._Mobile_Phones

    I personally would go for a Sony if they were more 'unlocked' lie, Samsungs are. But it's not hard at all to install custom FW on these things - it's just waaaaaaay easier on Samsung phones.

    But if you're not into that at all (heck even if you are) then by all means.

    I would like to share something with you android users. A simple process on how to improve the performance of an android phone slightly.

    1.) Go to Settings.
    2.) Navigate to Developer options and turn them on.
    3.) Set window animation scale to .5x and transition animation scale to .5x
    4.) Profit: Slight improvement in performance.

    well, i was warned by a mate, but its official..... i hate samsung phones.

    quick run down of things wrong with my galaxy s2, which i loved for about 11 months:

    1. "voltage too high, charging paused". this is a lovely message that i get when charging, and even when in my pocket. it is also accompanied by a lovely beeping noise that cannot be silenced, and an inability to turn off the phone without taking out the battery. the phone, in it's infinite wisdom, decides that it is needed, and turns itself on........ and starts beeping.

    2. obviously its a pain to charge, but the little charge i do get also lasts no time at all. and when it does run out it frequently won't turn on at all once charged. which is odd, because i usually can't turn the bastard off.

    3. this week is one of my phone's better weeks. at the moment it only freezes, thanks to something called 'samsung mapping service' (or some equally informative name) used in text messages. it frequently locks up, regardless of sending a text. which is nice.

    4. my touch screen. and this is just as annoying as the points above. i lock my phone, try typing the keycode/swyping, but it doesn't recognise my finger until i shake it. which makes me look strange in public places.

    5. allshare now is selfish and won't share anything but my music. its not that there are network issues, it literally won't share with me. it refuses to display my videos or pictures on the phone.

    6. my mates tell me i sound like i'm underwater. i'm not. and i don't.



    i know there are more, but i can't remember them right now. *oh yeah - $#@!ing "what would you like to do?" ummm, i'd like you and your cheap ass syri impersonation to $#@! off please. even muting the annoying $#@! doesn't calm me down that much, because i've heard her so much that even the silent menu triggers memories of her STUPID QUESTIONS. i can't believe they invented a middle button with a single and double tap function, but failed to allow it to register the difference. reminds me of the 360's dpad

    ^ Suckls for you bro.

    Had the 1st issue with my S2 before,. But it went away. Definitely has something to do with the battery if it doesn't go away.

    so did mine, for about 2 months.....

    apparently theres a chip or MB for charging that needs replacing....

    anyway, annoyingly i rooted the phone (about 2 months in - so not the cause of problems!), and now have to unroot the bastard to send it back (its still under warranty thank god)

    I have all these problems too =/. For the first problem I stick the charger into the port and sort of wiggle it around and it often fixes the problem. It's so $#@!ing annoying tho as is the centre button which sometimes registers as a double click even though I press it once.

    I genuinely thought I was the only one with these issues LOL.

    As mentioned already in this thread I've been looking for a new rom to flash on as I'm bored of samsung ics offering. I'll probably do it tonight. So far it's a throw up between cm 10.1 or jellybam. I'll probably put on the latter and see how it goes

    Can't Samsung see that you've flashed the device a number of times even if you flash the default firmware back on? I thought warranty remains void if that happens
