I'm also using a HTC One, I have no problems with battery life, I also downloaded an app that helps conserve battery power by turning off wifi when the phone is not in use I can use my phone for normal things like text and phone calls facebooking etc and still have over 50% by the time I get home from work.

nope, the blackberry keyboard is hands down better, there might be the odd mis-spelt word, but there is no stopping to correct or select the correct word, and no changing to access the grammar,

clearly you've not spent time on a BB bold keyboard, (I used one for years, and have had the android, with swype in some form since the HTC's first wildfire, and while swipe is quick, it isn't the same as the blackberry keyboard)

Why is it dieing? The battery running out too quickly?

Mostly just random freezes, sometimes when trying to answer a call. Minimising the browser to open memos seems to be a guaranteed way of freezing it. Have wiped it, didn't fix it. The internal emulated SD storage or whatever it is sometimes gets corrupted too, and requires starting again. With Samsung abandoning OS updates on it after the 2.x cycle, newer apps occasionally have problems. Sometimes it just refuses to boot and gets stuck in a cycle, requiring the battery being taken out. Sometimes the screen won't come on, even though the phone is running, requiring either waiting hours or taking out the battery. The filesystem refresher thing that happens whenever you turn it on or take the usb out takes about 20 minutes to run, starts then goes away, then comes back again after about 20 minutes. Phone runs like ass until it's created some sort of buffered memory filetable or something, though that got a lot better when I deleted huge amounts of backed up code with like a trillion files and screenshots (going into the media collection I guess).

There's a side-by-side list of differences here, if you scroll down a bit. Basically, more cpu power, double ram, much higher resolution.

For those who have changed from Apple to Android, can I ask why?

As I said I have a Galaxy S2, but it was my first smart phone. I'm planning to buy an iPhone next because I use iTunes heaps.

- Well for starters, itunes is a terrible piece of bloaty crap. How come iphones don't just let you plug in and treat the storage as a normal USB drive? I can just drag and drop my music. When I had an iphone I tried to plug it into my new PC, but it said it couldn't authorise as it had already been authorised on two many machines which was a massive wtf moment. I would have deauthorised it on an old machine but guess what? It didn't exist anymore.

- They're cheaper.

- You can actually customise things on the phone. Widgets are great, don't know how I lived without them.

- If you get a Samsung phone (others probably have it too) the screens are AMOLED. The much better contrast levels make for better viewing.

- There are s***loads more options. The market is flooded with Android phones atm so it's much easier to find a phone that suits you.

- Easily replaceable batteries

- SD card slots so you can easily add an extra 64GB of storage.

- Standard charging cable rather than a proprietary one.

That's all I can really think of right now.

You can deauthorise all of your devices in iTunes and start again with authorisations if you run in to that problem. Not a big deal.

The differences in software are mainly what interest me. I plug my phone in with USB and browse files all the time, especially messing around with music files. Having to use iTunes would seriously piss me off.
I can play all of my iTunes music on my current phone because there is no DRM on music from iTunes. I just can't play video stuff or apps.

I get what you mean about the price, Apple's phones are very expensive for what they are. I could probably buy an iPad for the other media with the difference.

Has superbly speeded the old thing up. I thought I was limited by the hardware, nope, turns out I was just limited by the very average Gingerbread era Darky's ROM I had installed. It came close to being ultra-rage-broken on a couple of occasions, I'm glad I decided to give it a chance with Cyanogenmod

In the past month I've converted my friend and sister to Nexus 5's (both previous iPhone users) and they couldnt be happier. No iTunes bulls*** and freedom to do so much more with the phone is a huge bonus but what got them hooked was being able to mirror notifications to chrome and texting via the computer. With KitKat, switching over is that much easier for iPhone users since the UI in 4.4 is the best its been - lets be honest, Android pre 4.0 was quite garbage.

What android phones DEVICES have you guys got?



here in the house we have a few old phones left over from work that my <10yr old kids now use for internet and skype with the family.


A friend gave my family a Telstra T-Box 1.1 (1.2? - not sure) which I am focusing on atm as I am now on holidays. The box is fine for intended usuage, though I feel its menu system and ability to communicate to Windows based machines requires some work.


I am on holidays atm, am really excited to play with it... though I am actually in need of some help :(


honestly - I just want it to recognise mkv's instead of ignoring them from and have a better NTLDR capability ( yes - before you say it.. I know what I said there ) NTLDR should also acknowledge newer forms of mkv. Consumers want 'wife friendly' technology...

s4

For those who have changed from Apple to Android, can I ask why?

1) no more ass f*****g itunes
2) If i want to put s*** on the phone I can:
- Plug in usb, copy
- Plug in microsd-usb, copy
- Once s*** is on the phone I can just open it as it. Don't need to convert files, dont need to use special programs. It just works.
3) Furthemore, same applies for copying music. Just copy it on and it fkn works. Same for movies, etc, etc, etc. And no need for special software like itunes.
3) If my battery goes dead, i have the option to carry a spare
4) Standard USB connectors - easier to get hold of (i.e. not buy, but when you say 'do you have this type of cable around?' to someone, they normally do), people always have them available, work on many devices (so for me, its one less cable type i need to keep track of).
5) Better wifi - missus has iphone 5, and the wifi is useless compared to my s4 (so bad that I had to put a second access point in the bedroom otherwise it wouldn't get on - while samsung had strong wifi connection)
6) Bigger screen - trying to use an iphone now just gives me hand cramps because its so narrow
7) Can run downloadable apps (i.e. download on computer and copy to phone) without having to do things like jailbreaking
8) Using custom ringtones AND alarms is 100x easier to do for free
9) expandable and replaceable memory
10) better customisation. Widgets allow you to run s*** from 'desktop' without specifically opening a program.

When you compare what an iphone can do and an android phone like the S4 can do - the iphone is about as useful as a paperweight.

Iphone 4 -> Iphone 5 connector change. If they f***ed off their proprietary bulls*** connectors and went to microusb, then people wouldnt need to use d***y converters or buy new accessories for each version change. They are also fussy about cables used on them - if you don't pay the premium $30 for a genuine apple cable, then the phone will say 'this is a non genuine cable' or something, and deliberately play up and not charge. I NEVER get this sort of issue with the S4.

I had an iphone 4 (work) for 2 years and couldn't get music on it easily - so i carried an android phone as an mp3 player. The S4 makes s*** easier, despite what apple would have you believe.

[I had more written here but the forum cut it off - have we go character limits now?]

- The battery is far more reliable/consistent, the s4 seems to die randomly (as does my nexus 7)
- Its easier to whip it out of my pocket, the s4 I leave in my laptop bag cause its more annoying to fit into a pocket (might be preference)
- There are still more (and better designed) apps for iOS, Android getting better but its still a second class citizen
- I don't care what people say, and it may be where I work, but nobody ever has a f*****g micro-usb cable on them for charging Android devices, where as I see someone with an iPhone and I can grab their cable
- The iPhone doesn't vibrate everything on the table when its on silent
- Google maps on iOS is better than it is on Android (and GPS in general) - even Google admits this - I use google maps a lot (esp when traveling)

The s4 is a great phone to play around with and do geeky things when I'm bored, and notifications are great, but when it comes down to just getting s*** done the iPhone is better and a nicer experience for me. I'm also almost all the time carrying a laptop on my back so that might make things different for me.

My partner went from an android based phone (s1) to a iphone. About 2 weeks in she regretted it and I laughed muchly (told you so kind of laugh). 2 months in and she will never ever touch apple again.

Seriously the best way to sum up apple phones/products:


Apple, it doesn't play well with others.


Also, it is a royal pain in the arse to do all sorts of tasks with an iphone when compared to android.

At the rate Google has been dumbing and locking down their products / services, Android may not become that different to iOS.

I spent several hours yesterday tweaking the stock apps, unlocking/rooting my N5 and putting all sorts of mods on to make the phone usable.

e.g:

* putting another launcher on so that I don't have an unwanted, f*****g google search box permanently stuck to the top of my homescreen
* turning off the volume warning popup that comes up when you try to turn the volume up past halfway. what am I, a child?
* adding a f*****g reboot option to the shutdown menu
* unlinking notification and ringtone volumes (why the -f***- were they combined? e.g. at work you'd normally want to be able to hear phone calls but don't need sms/email sounds going off)
* logging out of google hangouts so that my sms app is just an sms app, and not an integrated piece of s*** where it's hard to tell the diff between a "hangout" and a text.
* re-enabling the in-built app-ops to be able to lock down app permissions (google disabled this on the latest update)
* adding a call confirm safety feature (at the rate they keep revamping their UI, it's usually not clear whether tapping a contact will bring up their info, or simply call them without warning)

todo:
* turn off camera shutter sound (there's no mechanical shutter, f***wits!)
* need to find a way to remove the swipe-to-delete UI paradigm. have deleted several photos/texts due to accidental swipes.

This is the one feature of some Android phones that I love. Just a glance at the turned-off phone and I can tell from the flashing colour what I've missed and whether it's worth attending to.

Yep running it on the nexus S. Runs like s*** on my phone but its really good feature wise. Installation is really easy with their new app but that requires windows 7+

* turn off camera shutter sound (there's no mechanical shutter, f***wits!)


Yeah so annoying... from what I can gather without getting root access on the device and doing tricks like overwriting the system sound file it's not possible to stop the SGS3 shutter noise. No idea why, though the interwebs say it's to stop creepers taking upskirt shots of hotties.
If I wanted to do that I'd have just bought a different phone.

Reporting in after 48hrs with Cyanogenmod on my old release-week S1
I must say, i'm not just happy, i'm blown away. I never imagined this old junker could run Android 4.3, but run it with this fluidity? Wow. Superb battery life, all the options built in (backlight notification, swype etc).
I'll recommend CyanogenMod to anyone and everyone. It's tops.

I found using the smartassv2 is the best governor for saving battery under the performance setting. Set my CPUs minimum frequency to 122Mhz and max to 600mhz and gets the job done will and saves a lot of battery life. not much good for internet due to a small screen, but the integrated EQ lets me optimise my sound bass and treble when i'm listening via the speaker or via AUX cable

Has anyone had any experience with changing the battery of an andriod phone? I thinking of buying a new one, go with proper brand samsung battery or a generic branded one? I feel like a phone this old (Nexus Galaxy S) probably has a well used batter. I like the phone after installing slimrom on it and the only issue now is battery.

My wife uses the HTC One Mini based on the M7 when I use it I can definitely notice the difference it misses some features and the processing speed of things is very noticeable, she loves it to bits so doesn't complain.

I'm sure the next gen Mini will be improved so you probably wont have those issues but just a heads up.

First Android phone here, month or 2 in now.

Went from:

IPhone 3G -> 4 -> Lumia 920 -> Tab 4 (8")

Liking the new phablet a lot. Wanted to try android and wanted a large size phone cheap off plan so I could stop paying so much to Telstra on MROs.

Really like it but I do wish it was just a little gruntier. Has a non standard CPU so can't be modded easily. No serious problems though, I just wish that scrolling was a little smoother but can't argue with the value at the price point (330 outright delivered).

Will save about 40 a month on my phone plan when it rolls over in October.

You don't need to install a new ROM. Just root, install Xposed and download the AppOps module. Cyanogenmod is okay but can be a bit of a pain sometimes since even the release versions are pretty buggy. A good chunk of CM's features can be done through Xposed and a stock Android ROM.

I'm still using my S4, haven't bothered with the S5 yet, nothing there that has made me want to move over. Might be tempted by the Note 4. Running my own kernel and ROM for the S4. Makes for a much nicer device when it just has the stuff you want on it. Keen to get into some Android Gear modding when someone makes a device worth wearing.

I've got a Sony Xperia Z2.

A few months ago I was having heaps of battery issues with my Samsung Galaxy S3. I went with the Sony because it had the biggest battery out of the other leading phones at the time. I'm really happy with the battery on this thing, at the end of most days I still have at least 85-90% battery left. I'm not a heavy phone user, I pretty much never make any phone calls and most of the time I use it for taking photos and accessing the internet when I'm out and about.

Spook, did you get your OPO from the official site? It looks like they're still on invite only.

g/f is very happy with her phone in general. Has a really irritating bug at the moment with Maps and Gallery - pinch to zoom is broken, so you can't zoom in/out easily (possibly some other apps). Some comments on the official site imply this is a known bug and there's a fix due next week in an OTA update, but not sure if that is from an official statement.

I think I am going to hold out for the next Nexus phone.

I have a Samsung Galaxy s3 vers 4.3.
I've done nothing with it other than load a bunch of free apps.
What are the steps I should follow to making it super awesome?
Jailbreak? Root? Run modded software? Wipe and start from scratch? Charge battery in the microwave?
I'm happy to research HOW to do stuff, but I'm just sure of the best things to actually do.
*Goals*
To get rid of bloatware
To maximise video and audio player capabilities
To maximise pivacy (the other day I realised Google had kindly decided to put all my photos up on my Google drive. While they weren't published as such, I found that pretty invasive considering it was a default setting).
To unlock or maximise any handy features (or is this done mainly through installing apps? - I've noted people ITT talking about enhancing or replacing the OS or running what is presumably an compatible parallel OS - is that a thing?)
Basically improve quality of experience.

All I need is the name like "oh you should install Rootkit Q1DM4 it is badass".

Oh you should install CyanogenMod 11 it's badass. It runs on the latest version of Android, and old devices can typically update to the latest version as well.

yeh, typically works fine after a reboot for a few days(?) and then it stops working until there's another reboot. Weird bug. Hopefully will be fixed this week though before it strikes you guys!

Apparently an OPO update dropped today which "fixed everything". I will report again in a few days if things have broken again.
