It's a good bit faster 9check Anandtech/Toms hardware etc.). And thinner, and the screen is lovely. I've only seen one bad review (and that was from a Apple site!)
All the pre-orders statewide sold out so Asus must be on to something....
Dear Anonymous Coward (or should that be Little Englander? ;-) I don't think you understand Commercial/Trade Law. A British company in the US has to abide by US regulation. That is proper and correct. The reverse is true. Both companies have large presences in Europe and there could be competition implications here.
I hope the deal goes through actually...
I don't think this is the place to discuss off-topic stuff but please do remember to turn the lights off if you're the last one leaving our 'glorius' former empire....
C'mon guys GET A PHUCKIN/FREAKIN/FLIPPIN grip!
(see what I did there?)
And that's the problem with your attitude. When American sitcoms say 'freakin' is that ok!?? C'mon we ALL KNOW what they mean right?! Or do you turn the channel?
Anyway, it wasn't the author - it was the example scan he used. Should he not have used the Onion? Should the Onion be banned in your books?
The article is fine. It's 2011 for fu**'s sake (oh sorry - 'for crying out loud I mean)
I do - do this on the commute to work. I have a high cache set up for the odd time network coverage goes. XiiaLive does this very well.
If you think 3 are somehow the only ones who can tell what you're browsing, then I've got news for ya....
Besides they'd be able to tell I've been to Ikea, BBC, Android Authority, Pulse, Checking my shares... whoopy-do!
3 aren't angels - don't get me wrong, their tech support is abysmal. But from the stories I hear from friends about data on o2 and Vodaphone, I'll stick to 3 for the time being.... until that new disruptive 4g entrant comes along ;-)
Poor Camera review
I was on some amateur photography websites over the weekend (as one does) and the native timelapse functionality was well commended.
Also, this takes the prize as the fastest camera on a smartphone, should really get a mention...
16GB nowadays is enough
I have a Samsung GS2 and I've barely used the internal memory. All my music is streamed (either from internet or from my NAS box) Yes I'm on a 2gb internet plan from 3 which costs me £19 per month and most months I've used around 1-1.2GB.
I take loads of video but that wirelessly syncs up to G+ and I make a backup copy to my NAS box (over wi-fi)
Some music I cache locally for times I'm on the underground but generally, my internal memory is just for apps.
Dont' get your facts from this spurios research
Just look at a financial website to look at HTC's revenues over the past 2 years... they ARE making shed-loads of cash through Android. SE are also seeng a turn-around.
How is the Android market a mess?
Even my mother in law can use the Android Market..... it does the job and you can also send programs to your handset from a web browser - which is nice :)
3 are great - until there is a problem
I've been on 3 for a couple of years. Originally did it because they didn't charge roaming charges on other 3 networks. (They soon got rid of that! ).
I'm a big user of data. It is 3's data allowance (2GB) that keep me using 3. My only beef with them is their support staff and support policies.
On 3 different handsets I've suddenly lost 3G signal and I need to flip to flight mode a few times to get it back. The support line are abysmal. They wont help me and they are unbelievably patronising at time. Why won't they help me? .... Well my biggest beef is that 3 DO NOT SUPPORT YOU IF THE HANDSET IS NOT '3' BRANDED. I have been buying sim-free handsets from Amazon and Handtec for a number of years for both my partner and family. It's the only way to get decent handsets from HTC rather than waiting AGES for 3 to provide the same handset.
'Frank' from 3 (obviously not his real name) told me that "3 install special software on their handsets to make them compatible' and as a result , unbranded handsets (e.g. those without the 3 logo) can not be supported. What absolute tosh. No amount of reasoning with the clowns on support helps you in this situation.
So, yes 3's network might be OK, but you're on your own if your handset was not purchased through them. You get diddly-squat support. HTC ought to have a word....
