Nexus phones?

I wonder if these will work with the new Nexus phones, which are coincidentally, USB C.

Is it still considered high def?
Mar 25, 2016, 2:13 AM
in the Article: Netflix Says It Throttles Video on AT&T and Verizon forum

If it is, and I suspect it is, then what is the problem? The amount of data needed to achieve high def on a 6.3 inch screen (and smaller) has to be considerably less than the amount of data needed to achieve high def on a monitor or television. So why would you need full speeds on both? Obviously they should have made the information public sooner, but it hurt literally no one while helping others that may or may not ...

in the Article: Samsung's Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Are Waterproof forum

I came into mention the waterproof vs water resistant thing as well. =) But I was beat too it! But ya, if you say its waterproof, people will do YouTube videos where they drop it in a lake for a week and then bitch that Samsung lied when indeed, it was YOU (the writer) who was just irresponsible.

Maybe its a Renn Faire thing..
Nov 23, 2015, 8:14 PM
in the Article: Hands On with the BlackBerry Priv forum

But at Renn Faire you learn terms such as privy, aka bathroom. They are often shortened to the word "priv". I am not saying that is in anyway a reflection of this phone.. I am only saying that I am never going to be able to talk about this phone without making that connection.

Ya.. not sure you understand the thing that is going on. In a place that AT&T has say.. 25 MPS service... they are intentionally slowing down to.. lets say 2 MPS. (These are reasonable numbers depending on most peoples area of service). AT&T is absolutely making an effort to screw heavy users. (You example make not mention of intentional.. anything.) However. My point is that they said.. Do this.. this will happen.. They were honest about it from the start. They ...

I understand that PhoneScoop has been around a long time. So maybe you might go back into your own archives. If you did, you would have found this article: http://www.phonescoop.com/articles/ article.php?a=8565 -- Yep, you informed consumers yourselves. "Starting October 1 (2011), smartphone customers with unlimited data plans may experience reduced speeds once their usage in a billing cycle reaches the level that puts them among the top 5% of heaviest data users. These customers can still use unlimited data and their speeds will ...

When we change to "recent posts" LEAVE IT AT RECENT POSTS! Some of us actually read and want to see everything in order that it was posted, not be fed what Facebook thinks we should see.

Re: Galaxy Nexus looks like it's gonna rock-Has almost everything you'd want
Dec 8, 2011, 10:02 PM
in the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (global) forum

Again people are not realizing that with even Edge Network coverage, you can stream your music via Google music pretty quickly. Obviously you want a 3G or even a 4G for higher quality streaming, but you do not need to store you music locally AT ALL. When it comes to videos, again, Dropbox is free and you do not need to store them locally AT ALL except when you are ready to watch them. You could potentially, and ...

Google Music cloud storage means never needing to carry music... So what would you need more than 16 gigs of onboard space for?

Refurbished iPhone 3G in California
Apr 22, 2010, 3:43 PM
in the Shop Talk forum

Not a sales ad, but a complaint. Why does a 49 dollar refurbished 8Gig 3G iPhone have 43 dollars in taxes? When a new 8Gig 3G 99 dollar iPhone has 10 dollars in taxes? Someone explain to me why CA luxury tax is so screwed up?

Maybe it does have a poor track record, but until HTML 5 goes mainstream, its all we have for functionality that we have had for close to a decade now, thus expect even on a cellphone.

I work a call center for hourly + commision and I don't have a problem with store reps. I do have a problem with store reps that sell SIM cards without phone numbers attached. Other than that, I am cool with them. They probably don't like me though. I mention regularly that they prices in the stores can't match our prices and I neglect to mention that our prices can't match onlines prices. Of course, online fails to mention the lack ...

When I check in with a customer, its 20 seconds tops, I just was annoyed that the slowest operator ever told me that she couldn't wait.

in the Shop Talk forum

You've already said you don't talk on the phone much at all. You text message 24/7. You don't even know what Facebook is. Why do you want the unlimited talk plan, unlimited text plan AND the iPhone. Oh, and you don't want to pay for data because you don't use it ever. My problem is I hear this A LOT. Why do you want/need the iPhone? A simple text phone would work perfectly for you. There are free phones everywhere that have ...

I had a credit reviewer do this to me. 3 minutes into the call to them they had not asked me the reference # or even the customers name. I said I needed to check in with the customer (we are not allowed to keep people holding for more than 3 minutes and that amount had passed) The credit reviewer had the gall to tell me that she can only hold for 2 minutes. EVERY OTHER credit reviewer would have been ...

If the OP is racist or not is up for discussion, however it does not mean he does not make a point. If you were a waitress and a single father came in with his baby boy, is it patricist (yes, I just made that word up, let me know if there is a better one) to assume he is not going to tip you well, probably ask for lots of napkins, have a lot of crying and generally need ...

The promblems I have with the EVO *PhoneArena Repost*
Mar 30, 2010, 2:31 PM
in the General forum

I don't understand what the big deal is about this phone. It is missing so many things that I really want in a phone. For example: 1. AM Tuner 2. CB Radio 3. pre-installed fart apps 4. Instruction manual for paperweight mode 5. shuriken mode 6. transformation abilities (hopefully autobot) 7. One touch dialing to the Ghostbusters 8. Mountain Dew dispenser. 9. Built-in counterfeit quality printer and lastly 10. a third, x-ray through clothes camera. Seriously HTC? What were you thinking?

I always lie and say "insurance reasons". For insurance reasons Little Timmy can't be in here without at least a 18 year old watching them. (I used to work at a knife shop, so that one was easy, you could do the same and just say 16 instead of 18). Generally I always blamed some unknown, unaccountable entity when I am enforcing people being stupid. "Sorry, I can't do that because if I was being mystery shopped/boss comes in/they see me ...

On the phones all I seem to hear anymore is "what can I get for free? I have a deposit? Well can you check to see what my husband, cousin, next-door neighbor, my dog and his fleas qualify with no deposit? Oh me? No, I plan to buy in a store."

I know I don't have a problem at all with Apple as a company. I do have a problem with Steve Jobs going off on other companies in the media. I also have a promblem with his say just off the wall things like "our phones don't need screen protectors".

Twice in two days I get this call. A girl calls whom sounds young, possible underage young. She then proceeds to ask me to run a credit check under her fathers name. I ask to verify with him that we can do that. She comes back on the phone, voice deeper, pretending to be a guy. I mute, call my coworkers over to listen then unmute and proceed to ask her as many questions as possible to get the funniest responses. Note: I cannot ...

Here, in Reno NV, I am paying, after equipment rental, just shy of 50 a month for a 2 Meg signal that is capped on how much I can download (and what I can download, such as P2P blocking.) I do have to say though that they have loosened their reigns on those restrictions, though, they are still there. And there is indeed a 700 dollar EFT if I were to cancel. After I can cancel with Clearwire, I am totally getting ...

I call AT&T Customer Care 4-8 times a day and never once have I been routed outside the US. However I have called Sprint Customer Care a total of 5 times and 4 of those times have been outside the US. "South East Asia" was the most common response. (I always ask for the user id, full name and location of the call center.) I have to say for the record, the one time I got someone in the US ...

How So? I have been posting for at least a couple months now, normally about 3-5 times a day. I post in multiple forums about multiple topics without showing a bias of any kind other than "You get what you pay for". I based my assessment of Pocketguy2009 based on his forum history. I would be intested in know upon you based your assesment.
