post #11 of 29
I am waiting for the Samsung Galaxy SIII which will clearly be a superior phone if the rumors are true.

My coworker has one and he says it's the best android based phone he's had since the original droid. He's already installed a custom ROM on it to boot.

I have had my Nexus since Dec 26th. I've enjoyed it immensely. I am below the average user as far as the time I spend actually using it for data. I'm typically connected to WiFi when I am using the phone. I've used the GPS for a short trip and made a few phone calls with no issue at all. The only time I had to rush and plug into my charger was after a 2.5 hour gaming session of Drag Race. biggrin.gif I've been very impressed with this phone. It will definitely serve me well for the next 2 years. I'm going to give it a good test of GPS capability and battery life next week when I do some traveling for work.

I stopped using Samsung phones for the following reasons: Battery-Life, cheapness, POOR GPS!, starting to look like iphones,

Question... what are any of us doing on phone that make us want to say.."Yeah I have a Custom ROM blah", or "I over clocked my phone man" .... I wanna know what I am missing out on cause my laptop is killing any cell phone for the next 10 years ... I just don't understand why it is so important phone cell phones t be fast or for people to want them to be faster or completely different. Someone tell me what I am missing out on or is this just a hobby?

Overclocking a cell phone really is not practical in most real life uses..some just love to overclock and do a benchmark and go "haha my phone is faster than yours!" but apart from that..no..sucks battery and runs hotter..Now custom ROMs...for those of us like me who like to customize things..installing a custom ROM is awesome..we can do whatever we want to the look..disable dumb programs that just slow the phone down..and just overall..make it fast, slim, and sexy..did I go too far?

I just got mine earlier this month and I love it. Huge upgrade from my OG Incredible. I was a bit worried at first about the plasticy build, but this phone feels really solid in my hands and the back has a nice upscale-feeling texture. Stock battery life was decent at first but then it got better after a few days; I rooted it and installed RootzBoat ROM with a custom kernel on it and now I can easily go over two days with moderate use along with a dramatic performance boost.

The DPI is almost on-par with the iPhone's retina screen while being 720p and it is one of the most amazing screens I've ever seen. I have no idea what the fuss is about the pentile matrix screen, because you'd need a magnifying glass to notice that. I also have not had any reception issues, rock-solid 4G wherever I go.
