[BGR][AC] Samsung’s plan for revenge: Sue Apple if it dares release an LTE iPhone - Page 48

post #471 of 516
Steelbom are you really supporting the anti-consumer practice of trying to shut down Android and/or make Android phones more expensive for those that want to use them? Because if so, that's just plain sucky.

He will say he doesn't support it, then defend it for 20 pages.

So, adding a bunch of features to your new phone that a competitor has already had for a while that consumers like and want is natural progression, but transitioning from one overall design (several physical buttons, large and bulky overall shape) to another (minimalist, clean design with large screen, single physical button, sleeker thinner profile) that the consumers like and want isn't?

All the accusations between both sides about copying each other are just borderline laughable already. The whole definition of competition (in business sense) is offering similar products to the same target market. Business (especially globalized businesses) need to do whatever it takes to stay relevant and deliver what their target market wants. Natural progression means the consumers will always want the next nicer, improved, thinner, smaller (or larger) phone with more features. I think Samsung having a thousand different phones should be enough to see "these guys have every design of a phone you can possibly think of, they're obviously not copying anyone." Apple has the competitive advantage in marketing (specifically in the US because Android is overwhelming iOS abroad), Samsung has the competitive advantage of insourcing and producing most of their own hardware and software. They're each pretty fairly competing by making use of what they're good at (though I have to say Samsung's latest advertising with the new Galaxy tablet is better than Apple's recent ads in my opinion). I don't see PC manufacturers or companies in other industries suing each other left and right over trade dress. It seems to specifically all be coming from Apple, and that's not coincidental. Why wait this long to sue Samsung over their phones that have been out for years? Obvious answer: Samsung has been outselling them for over a year now, and they don't like that.

Rooting itself is "meh". It's what you do with it (UI custom motly) that makes the difference smile.gif.

I think you can use ADW and GO launchers without rooting

You can, but that doesn't give you full customization of the entire UI. AOKP (Android Open Kang Project) lets you tear apart anything and everything in Android. Take the Galaxy Nexus's touchscreen buttons for example.

you can do that with any Android UI, though biggrin.gif All you need is the apktool and some java know how wink.gif

I got it to 'almost' 1.6 Ghz, but didn't feel like playing with the volts to an extent that could harm the device. biggrin.gif . The phone undervolts itself when necessary. It's almost always running at 800mhz.

You shouldn't run it at more than 1A, dude, you'll damage the battery. (1A/1000mA)

I can get to 1.6GHz while undervolted, but I don't bother running it at that since I'd rather have the extra battery life (though to be fair the volts used for 1.6GHz are the same as 1.4Ghz stock before I undervolted biggrin.gif)

I don't mean this is the typical troll-esque manner, but proof? I'd like to read up on it. I have always used higher rated chargers, and was under the (old) impression that the device will only take what it needs.

Mine needs a hefty voltage boost to do that! Lucky biggrin.gifcheers.gif

No, you're quite right to ask, really.

Basically, the battery is rated to be charged at 1000mA which means its' rated and tested ot have 1A pushed through it. When you push more through it you sure enough make it charge faster, however you put strain on the circuitry inside the phone as it is carrying more voltage than it should be. As you may know, all circuitry has rated resistance level. For example, we shouldn't push more than a certain voltage through our CPU's or else they will degrade over time. The same is for the circuitry in the battery. A higher amperage pushed through it is a higher voltage going through it. It leads to a weaker battery and less lifetime for it.

There's a lot of reading about it (I've done a lot recently as I was tempted to do the same)

He's at no risk period. Amperage is just the amount of power available and all modern phones have current limiting circuits on there charging. You could put 5A on the 5v line its only going to draw what the phone is limited at. Older dumb phones never had current or charge limits so there was danger involved with them.
