That wasn't me who posted that last message. It's a fake account. You can tell because of the post count.

Re: [OFF-TOPIC] Galaxy SII Hangout Thread
I've been on Spain JB since the release. Anyone else starting to get a bit bored?

What else can I do to liven up the experience?

Re: [OFF-TOPIC] Galaxy SII Hangout Thread
OK here's the dilemma.

My dad has the Galaxy S3 and iPad 3, and he will be upgrading both to the next successor, (S4 and iPad 5) later on in a few months time.

He will hand down the devices. (I get old hand downs )

I will have to choose between the S3 or the iPad... Which should I go for?

I'm unsure which to pick. I use my phone more than a tablet. (But probably because my current tablet is crap, may be different with the iPad.) But will the S3 be a huge upgrade from my phone? I have the same UI already on it, so not much will be new, right?

Whereas the iPad will be a huge upgrade compared to my Galaxy Tab in terms of hardware. However, what is holding me back from the iPad though is iOS. It will feel very restricted, and there aren't as many free apps compared to Android, and not much customization.

Any suggestions or opinions? Which should I go for?

Cheers.

No limit for email addresses, but one reply from one address per day. So... About two weeks ago, I discovered an email in my account that I used for that feedback -- the ONE I forgot to monitor (I was sure I had a forwarding set up on it, but I was wrong)!



This email (along with three reminders during that grace period) has been sitting in my inbox since Nov 12. What a disappointment... When I saw this message, I was like "are you freaking kidding me?!?!" But then again, what's the point of being mad about something you can't change, anyway? Just laugh it off, there will be other chances... Cheers to the runner-up guy or gal who got the S3, whoever you are!

Dude!! You didn't have your ph set up to receive your emails!?

Unlike you (almost) I never win sh!t3

I would've given myself 20 upper-cuts if I'd missed out on an SIII

Like I said, it was just that one email account that I am not using much (if at all), and I forgot to set it up with forwarding. Murphy's law never fails...

And what's the point of beating youself up, if it won't change things, anyway? Let it go! Besides, I don't even like S3 (too big and ugly), but it would sure have been a nice chunk of money to sell it and buy something else...

Anyone have any comparisons of the battery life on XWLSD compared to CM10.1?
