i mean i hard lot of screen defect on nexus 7.. and tab 2 seem more legit even though the spec lower... and black friday is coming.. wat should i get

OBVIOUSLY the Nexus 7 is better. Way better. With the tab 2 you can do calls and texting with a SIM card, that's basically the only positive from the tab 2.

Hey folks,

I'm looking at a used phone in the $300 range. My main concerns are great GPS and good developer support.

I was looking at the Galaxy S II or maybe the Skyrocket (LTE phone). But after looking over the last 15 pages of this thread it doesn't seem anyone mentions either of these phones much. It seems very few people are selling the Xperia models on eBay which makes me worried no one uses them, but they get lots of mentions here. Am I barking up the wrong tree with the S II?

What would you guys recommend for the $300 used price range for T-Mobile. (I've love the Nexus 4, but who knows if it'll ever be available again and its $450 on ebay)

I need help choosing a phone from T-mobile. I've narrowed it down to:

HTC One S
Google Nexus 4
Windows Phone 8X
Lumia 810
Samsung Galaxy S3

I'm planning to use the phone primarily for music, web browsing, messaging, and sometimes games. I don't know how to use ROMs but is willing to learn how if it can help with the battery life/remove the bloatwares and other unnecessary apps.

Thank you in advance.

galaxy s4 or galaxy note 2
should i buy the galaxy note 2 now or wait for the galaxy s4

what i was planning to do with my phone is gaming and internet browsing,but what i'm concern is that the note 2 is gone lose his horse power against future games and that the s4 will be better for the more graphic intensive games in the future because of his exynos 5 chip,second is that im just a little bit worried about the screen quality of the note 2 and is the s4 rumored 1080p display gonna be alot better than the note 2 display,third is the size im 6 foot 6 and i thinking that the note 2 is not too big for me but generally i think that the note 2 is not to big for no buddy if you're sitting at the couch and comfortably holding the phone with one or two hands but my concern is when your in a hurry and you have your one hand full with bags or somthing and then you need to answer your phone or send a text message could you still use your note 2 with the other hand comfortably or secure enough not to drop it,fourth is that a need a good amount of internal memory for my apps and how it is right now the note 2 comes only with 16gb internal (i now there is a hack how to swap internal whit external memory but i dont now how good that is gone work) and that the s4 maybe come with 64gb right out of the box because samsung is working on a thiner and faster 64gb chip,and finally my last thought is like with every rumor is that they might be truth or not and that is what is eating me up is to wait for it to see are they real or not and why i can't wait no more because a never had a smartphone before (right now own a nokia c6-00) and i dont have alot of money to spend every half year to buy a new smartphone thats why my next phone needs to be good and not that i spend all my money for one phone and a couple of months later there is a better phone for almost the same amount of money,so that's all i have to say sorry for such a long post but i want to be really detailed about it and sorry if my english was bad am not so good ad it used google translate

Well you said you thought WP8 is exciting, but with a Nexus you will get Android updates the fastest. Just think, when they release.Android 5.0 the Nexus 4 will be there to receive it. Won't THAT be more exciting than whatever next WP releases?
Also, no WP7 devices were upgraded to WP8. I don't really trust WP and updates because of that.

And WP8 isn't very exciting at all anyway, you will like it for a day than BAM! Instant boredom.
