Just got my new phone :)))))

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Finally, after waiting a week for it, just got my Galaxy S 2 from T-Mobile. I got the PowerSkin with it since I am using it for work and need the hotspot for my laptop, but now finding something to carry it in is proving difficult. Its kinda big. I guess I could get a gun holster wink.gif. Now to start loading cool apps for fun and work. Since I like listening to music on this, like Shoutcast, I wonder if there are any decent apps to improve the sound quality. What works, and which are a waste.

Congrats thumb.gif

For music, PowerAMP is the best, here's the link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.maxmpz.audioplayer&hl=en
If your droid is running Gingerbread, it should have an app called DSP manager, it works as an equalizer.

Cant wait for ICS. Just put it on my wife's Prime yesterday and it is nice. Does PowerAMP have a streaming radio station like Shoutcast on Winamp. Most of what I listen to is streaming.

I have Equalizer as my main FX manager for global EQ.
PowerAMP is the best for just all round media player since it plays FLAC and has built in EQ.
I personally use Slacker Radio for streaming radio.
Doubletwist is good if your looking for Apple syncing with AirSync.

I dont plan on rooting it since I have a replacement protection plan and they are meticulous on checking the phone that I return. I will just wait for ICS. So far, just getting comfortable with it. I am using Winamp/Shoutcast and SmartAndroid EQ with pretty good results. Just picked up a pair of Shure SE215 buds and they sound great. The Slacker Radio is ok, but I have a better selection with Shoutcast. Oh, and the GPS TeleNav is better than the the Tom Tom I have in my truck. Haha, go figure.thumb.gif
