I prefer cyanogen-mod rom's to strict AOSP. Run the smoothest I have experienced.

There will be people defending both, is there one superior product? Hard to say...

I love how customizable android is vs apple. I tend to think of apple as a normal users phone and android as an advanced users phone. Apple is so locked down, without jailbreaking there isnt much you can do other than install and use apps and change background photo. Android's possibilities seem fairly endless from my experience so far. I haven't done much with my S4 yet but i can tell its a great phone.

Besides overclocking, there isn't any visual or functional customization that you can only do on Android and not iphone (JB). Widgets, notification bar shortcuts, live wallpaper etc you can add anything you want.

Can you get widgets too work the same way they work on Android? The full app kind of thing?

I agree with other commenters that the default Android setup that carriers sell is pretty bad in regard to stutter and such. All of those issues are out the window though when you install Cyanogenmod with a decent launcher like Nova. It becomes a seamless smooth-running device and extremely customizable.

Also, try to install Linux on an iPhone. Maybe you want to use Firefox OS instead. Either way, you'd be better off with an Android compatible device.

A review of HTC One Google Edition.




I really like it by the look of it. And actually playing with the thought to go for the HTC One (unlike I wanted the HTC One mini earlier), but if I go for the big One, than it's going to be black... wait HTC has the Google Eidtion only in silver, just like they intedn to release the black One mini in September. HTC is really stupid sometimes.

I could buy the black One and flash it to stock Android, but I don't feel like I want to mess with it. Damn you HTC, wonder if I should give you my moneys at all.

Yep. Source

However, I don't use widgets. I can access my 8 most used apps from ANYWHERE in the OS using swype gestures, and with my Jellylock, 13 in total from lockscreen. Why get a dumbed down version of the app (widget) when I can launch the app in 0.2 seconds from anywhere, including from other apps? Accelerate cuts down the animation time, so it pops up instantly.

Good post and workaround...
But that's all subjective as there are people who want to listen and switch between music and be able to see the 5 day weather forecast (widgets) all in one window in contrast to opening up a whole application window...

After installing this Google Edition rom on my S4, that's actually one of the features I will miss from Touchwiz is the multi-view app which I could watch a youtube video and browse the web... Takes advantage of the 1080p screen...

That's true, the multiview is not something that can be done on iphone or AOSP ROM afaik. It is nice with the screen real estate of android phones nowadays like the note 2/galaxy s4 etc.

You could have music and weather as two widgets on iphone if you really wanted hehe tongue.gif

I just retrieved my Galaxy S2 from a friend and now I am on a mission for 70+ hours battery life! Because it's an older phone, ROM's and kernels have had time to mature so just a matter of finding the right combination. I managed to get almost 68 hours on dec 2011 around new years once, was running a custom 2.3.6 ROM and stock kernel.

Screen off time? Air plane mode on? Doesn't 2.3.7 have better battery life, not sure which bugs they fixed with that iteration.

Ah that's interesting, cool.

I've got a pie edge swipe that allows me to do the same (8 apps) and a swipe from my left edge give me my recent apps and a list of all my apps.

On not wanting a widget when you can open a app, it's a preference: I control my music from widget on my home screen or the notification pull down screen, and use the pie for browser and messaging apps. I also use a twitter widget, guess it's nice because it is loaded and I don't check my twitter often enough so it's a bit of extra motivation.
