Re: 16 to 32

in the Samsung Galaxy S III (Verizon) forum

truth be told, I had the iPhone4 and gave it to my wife to switch to the S3 for myself. Its just funny how they bash Apple, yet supply them with most of their memory chips.

I have the 16 gb phone, and I popped in a 32gb MicroSDHC card. totalling 48gb I keep all music and movies I rip to MP4 with handbrake on the MicroSD card. everything else I leave on the phones internal memory. Once in a while I copy off old photos and videos to free up space, I shoot a lot of pics and vids and sometimes end up with only 1gb free on the phone. Still loving my GS3, I'm loving the Samsung ...

Re: Jerky video playback

in the Samsung Galaxy S III (Verizon) forum

After reading these posts I double checked my phone when I play the video I shot yesterday, sometimes the frames would freeze while playing the video back on my phone, I copied the video file onto my laptop and played it on the computer and it played perfectly smooth. No frame freezes at all. So I am happy to say the jerky video playback happens only on the phone, the actual video if played on something else plays perfect.

720p will give you smoother video, but also, do you have "image stabilization" turned on? If so, turn it OFF I found when its on it does exactly what you dont want it to to. I had video of my pushing my kid on swings at the park and it looked like an earthquake was going on. Turned off "IS" and it was perfect. I noticed if you have a lot of background apps running sometimes that causes the video be a little choppy. Its ...

If your within the 14 day return time, VZW should credit you. Even if your within 30 days, they should but may try to scum you. Good for you, its nice to get those credits, more money for more gear, wooo hoo !

In 2010 I had a Motorola DROID, then I got the iPhone4 when Verizon finally carried it, then about a month and half ago I got the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, used off Ebay. I wanted to like that phone but ended up reselling it on Ebay again. and now I am back on my iphone for a little longer. I had a 3800mAh battery on the nexus and it made it much thicker, but would last about 18 to 20 hours. Sometimes ...

Just a nerdy technical fact, not one of the carriers out right now meet the technical spec for 4G, all the carriers out now have what they're marketing dept has been legally able to call 4G. The true speed of 4G data as per IEEE is around 100mbps But Verizon is the only "4G" carrier with the fastest network right now, but all over them are not technically 4G they are only 4G because they're marketed that way only. Personally I am amazed ...

Re: No Spring-assist slider
Mar 11, 2012, 7:51 PM
in the Motorola Droid 4 forum

This is a general opinion of mine to this whole thread. The original Droid didnt have a spring assisted keyboard slider either. If you cant get the keyboard open on a Droid 4, either you left the plastic on it that is on that back of the upper frame from when purchased new, or you have the weakest hands ever. If you slide open the keyboard about 20 or 30 times will loosen it up a little bit. Perhaps you would like nice ...

I love how the milspec rating mentions "Solar Radiation" Yep, the phone will survive a catastrophic solar flare, but the user will be toasty !! ( for an example think of Chronicles of Riddick or the bridge scene in "The Core" ) Ouchies !

I just did a compare on this site for the HTC Merge and this phone. Same processor specs, but the merge is a world phone, the Commando is not. Still its nice. and 800mhz is pretty good for speed. I likey dis android phone.

Ahhh yes. Windows Mobile 6 and 6.5 you will be missed..... missed like being sick and having pudding a$$. Windows Phone 7 is going to really give Android and Apple a run for their money. I used a Samsung Focus for about 2 hours and I loved it. I've had a Blackberry, have a Droid 1 looking forward to Windows Phone 7 on Verizon in Q1 2011 as my next phone. And oh yeah, FIRST POST !!! Wooo hoo.. (couldnt resist)

Long press the home button. nothing, do not get the last used apps screen. BING as the default???? Its supposed to be Google. WHY GOD WHY did they release an Android phone that is trying so obviously hard this time to look like a certain other phone I shall not name. Yes the screen is awesome, yes samsung makes great hardware, but WTF TouchWiz instead of the baked in Android abilitie. TouchWiz in my opinion is a pain in the a$$ I would rather have this phone rooted, with ...

Yeah VB is full of doody. I have had a Droid 1 since Feb 2010 this phone has been awesome the whole time. The only REAL BIG PROBLEM now is whether to update to the DROID X, or Droid 2 when my Early Upgrade date comes. The big screen is nice, but the physical keyboard has been awesome to have this whole time. Either way I will be happy as both are great phones.

I can tell you easily what Android offers that WebOs does not. A FUTURE.... WebOs exists only on the phones its currently on, and nobody is putting out any flagship hardware with that OS on it anymore. Which is all a shame, but they had extensive hardware problems on the Pre, and took 1 year too long to get it to market. And lets face it, nobody wants a Pixi. Android on the other hand suffers a lot from fragmentation right now. Motorola overlays BLUR ...

The browsing on the Torch will be on par with the Droid and iPhone, usable in the real world and fast. Its running a webkit based browser. So they can achieve a good speed browser with only a 600+ mhz processor. When your more effiecient, you dont need to make up for it in fast processorts. Hence the Droid1, it has a underclocked 550mhz processor and a separate video processor. they offload the graphics to the other chip. Allowing for efficient cpu speeds, AND ...

You will be able to store and run most apps from the SD card in Froyo 2.2. I have read some people saying the Bluetooth headset wasnt voice dialing with the Froyo update out now on their NexusOne. If its a plantronics bluetooth headset, do a long press on the button on your headset, then you will hear the bluetooth on the phone ask you to say a command. Finally ANDROID/Froyo 2.2 has the Voice dial over bluetooth we have all been waiting ...

Otterbox Commuter, got it on Amazon $30 beans. Its tough and makes the phone easier to hold and the buttons easier to press. All the other cases out there are just simple plastic shells. The Otterbox is made from polycarbonate and is tough as balls. However, you will need to find a bigger holster if your looking to put it on your belt. Otterbox does not sell a belt clip to go with their case. And unless you have the Seidio case and ...

Apr 20, 2010, 8:13 PM
in the Article: Dragon Lands in BlackBerry App World forum

The Motorola DROID can do this already in the 2.1 firmware update. But it isnt perfect. NUANCE doing this for the blackberry is a great thing. NUANCE does the voice recognition for DROID phones, and Blackberry phones. They know what their doing. The droids implementation of this feature is more like an experiment, If NUANCE does this right they add a very desirable feature to a very solid platform that is the blackberry. I had a Storm 9530 before I had my moto droid ...

Considering the original phone was released for close to 600$ and in 2006 and its 4 years later. Yes, its time to get a new phone already. 4 years in cell phone years is like 75 years in human years. I'm suprised any first gen iphones are even working still. The battery must be dead 5 minutes after you pull it off the cable. Now if you had a REAL phone like the Moto DROID, which although "ugly" as some have put it, ...

I just got a reminder email from OtterBox saying the "DROID by Motorola Commuter Series Case" is available, its a nice case. But I dont think it comes with a belt clip of any kind. But for $34 its not bad. Anyone who know who OtterBox is you know they make good cases. Enjoy.

physical keyboard on DROID
Mar 17, 2010, 1:56 PM
in the Article: Verizon Wireless Details Android 2.1 Upgrade for Motorola Droid forum

This may sound dumb but I noticed the physical keyboard on the DROID works best when my fingernails are cut, if you have even a little bit of nail, it tends to make you have to poke your finger into the key a little bit. But again it may just be me. Its fine, and honestly the on screen landscape keyboard is just ducky, you will not need the physical keyboard to often.

Regardless of the "experience" Both the phones come from Motorola and both are running a form of Android. So my big gripe here is if HTC had voice command over BT and the Motorola phones didnt I could see that. But Motorola put out both of these phones. And now remember this, the DEVOUR is meant to be a lower cost phone, and they put this in there. WHereas on the DROID, the "flagship" phone they didnt put it in there and have not yet put ...

Motorola made the DROID, Motorola made the DEVOUR The DEVOUR has this ability. lets get an ability that's existed since 2003 into this phone already. I not arguing with anyone else's points here. Just saying, GIT'R'DONE already. What is taking them so long. The phone does everything else but for some reason someone is dragging their heels getting this done already. If this didnt exist in the DEVOUR I wouldnt be so annoyed that it hasnt been done yet on the DROID. Thanks

Agree, but when you drive 4 hours a day. You will need to place calls while driving. Regardless of whos fault it is, they need to get it done already. The phone for 5 months already. and a feature is missing that has been in phones even non smart phones since 2003. Plus if you look at a Motorola DEVOUR it has full voice command over bluetooth, its even running the "Nuance" or "VoiceSignal" software. I forget which one it is, but its got ...

I wonder if this update, or the next will finally add the voice command ability over bluetooth. I still love my DROID but it needs this feature. Plus its state law in a lot of places now, so basically Verizon is making me a criminal everytime I try to call someone while driving. ahahahah,.. DROID DOES !!!!

seriously, like you touch ONLY the button on your bluetooth headset, the phone says back, who do you want to call, and you say the name, and it calls. meaning at no time do you have to touch the screen? wow, well the Devour is MotoBLUR if im not mistaken, I truly hope this ability comes to the DROID and Nexus soon. Especially since its the state law in most states now. Great to hear, thanks for your reply to this post.

Switched to the MotoDroid about a month ago. been trying to get DriveSafe to work with my exchange email account, and after emailing their tech support a few times I finally was told. "DriveSafe.ly works with Android 1.5 and higher, and currently only supports POP3 and IMAP." No exchange account support. DARN !!! Oh well, at least I know ...

It doesnt appear to be a class 4 card, possibly just a class 2. But really thats enough for music and little ...

This thing is expensive.for 180$ you could buy a Zune HD.

If by "voice command" you mean the ability to touch the button on your BT headset and say a name to call, that ability does not work over bluetooth at this time. But should be added at a later firmware update. I do a voice dialed call, you need to put a "Voice Dialer" icon on your main screen, and then speak directly into the phone, and then again tap the screen to confirm that name you want to dial is correct. ...
