Hey!
I would like to hear your opinions on this one. Should I get a ZTE Grand X or a Sony Ericcson Arc S?
Thanks in advance!

Ive searched google for days and have had no posative result or have i found anyone that has acheived the same goal so i thought what better place to ask then the xda forums.
Im looking to buy a new tablet for 1 purpose only, i have the torque app on my droid and have bought several bluetooth obd2 adapters from ebay but have yet found 1 to work, for those that have just asked themselves what the hell is a obd2 adapter its for car diagnostics.
What im aiming todo is buy a android tablet that will allow me to plug in a obd2 adaptor through usb as these have no issues and run the torque app but on my searches people have said that the tab would have to allow usb interface with the adapter, i dont really want to go spend 1, 2 or £300 on a tab to realize that it dont work. The tab will be mounted in the car for this strict purpose instead of always having to get out the laptop to run checks and the torque app has much more to offer unlike the usual car diagnostics software.

I really hope someone can help me with this situation as its anoying me that ive bough an app and i have no way of using it.

not positive on this, but look at the Archos gen 8 tabs, cheap and not bad.

Evo 3D or Photon 4G
Short Version: As far as rooting and available roms go which would I be better off with Evo 3D or Photon 4G? Either will be free.
Long Version:
I recently have had a bunch of problems with my Evo 4G that was replaced by Asurion. It took 3 times to get one that was better than the rest but still not right. After a few months of use it too started to act up. A 45 minute phone call later they sent me an Evo 3D to replace my 4G. Out of the box it had the infamous freeze/reboot syndrome. Yet another 45 minute phone call later I was offered either another Evo 3D or Photon 4G. So from an after market rooting point of view which would I be better off with? I have researched the roms available but still can't decide. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thank you

The one XT is the China one x, do not buy it unless you live in China.
The one x is the international version. Has quad core (tegra 3) and 4g on at&t
The one XL is the at&t version of the one x. At&t markets it as the one x which causes a lot of confusion. Has LTE and snapdragon s4

The best one is probably the one XL. Tegra 3 is overrated

(I said one xl. The one you want to AVOID is the XT)
And AT&T has the big three of the big three right now, sgs 3, one x, and Atrix HD. However since you didn't like your experience with the s3, and the Atrix HD is worse than one xl and sgs3, I'd test your luck with the one x
As for buying full price or not... depends on if you don't mind sticking with the same phone for 2 years
