It's ---- all to do with android vs iPhone either, it's a general UI glitch of which in android there's far to many for it to be pleasant to use.
More examples of glitches in Androids, please?

How many people are jail breaking their phones though?

If you want to compare rooted phones then android owns iOS period end of story. Hell, I don't even have to root my phone to install non market apps.

How's flash support on iOS coming along?

I wasn't aware.

In any case, the point stands. While it was alive the iPhone never had it. How much did that anger the end users especially since so many sites relied on it to present their content. Granted, flash was never intended to really be used on mobile devices.

I hear you though, I dont want to get into it either. But some of the stuff is undeniable and is signature apple. Why? Because they can is not a reason.

1. It took a me a while to consider your inability to communicate in sentences greater than 20 characters.
2.We have yet to see your laundry list of "glitches" aside from your errant conception via "alreantive orifices.
3.

I've been running cm stuff for the last 4 years. I just read bug reports and upgrade accordingly. they started running nightly's which is pretty cool. It's like nix now on development releases.

I have a galaxy phone and have nothing but great things to say about it. It's been a remarkably durable phone. I have dropped it more times then i can count. AMOLED rocks. you get amazing picture and contrast and don't ever have to worry about breaking your screen.

I wouldn't hesitate to load a cm rom on a samsung phone in warranty. especially with how durable my galaxy has been. if the main reason for swapping would be the input form i'm not sure i'd bother though.

I have LTE in Dallas and Houston.

I'm still torn between the GoSMS messenger and the TouchWiz message apps.

We had to replace her GS2 because the screen cracked.


When she dropped it from chest height onto a tile floor, that is.

lol i guess the gs2 doens't have this

i have the epic4g. yeah well clearwire is dead and sprint has not gotten off their asses and done anything about it. i work in communications wireless stuff specifically and am familial with progression. My latency is terrible for one. my 3g's avg speed is about 200kpbs. i roam, a lot. I live in a city 1mil+, roaming agreement with other providers sucks. I may as well have some pay as you go bullshit because i think sprint cheeped out on their roaming agreements.

my phone dies constantly cause it's searching for signal for the whole god damn day. insult to injury i pay for "premium data" and have for 2 years for nothing. perfectly happy with my phone. want to kick sprint in the junk for making me pay for stuff i can't use.

company pays for half my phone though and soon as contract is up i will be on to breaking company iphones.

nobody has the flexible one yet. samsung just started production of them. however the amoled screen is MUCH more durable to it's alternatives with the exception of gorilla glass.

Also i guess the Epic4g has a lot more durable design. It's pretty rare to see any with broken screens.

This, which troubles me as I like what hustler has done.

Anyone else managed to silence the camera without silencing the rest of the phone

Also why are there only 8 overall volume positions? I want more granularity, weirdly some apps are fine, but the launchers aren't.
