Going to give the Galaxy S6 a run for its money!

in the Article: LG Outs the G4 On Its Facebook Page forum

In a perfect world............ Usually the phone manufacturers when they make a mini version start to skimp on the specs at the same time. Ex: Crappier chipset Ex: Crappier camera Ex: Crappier display Ex: Crappier battery They figure you want smaller, you pay less, you get less.

"Milking" Li-Ion is absolutely right. It is all about the $$$$$$$$$$ :roll:

I ran a speed test of the S6 vs. Moto X and the Moto X opened and ran apps faster. Too much bloat and processes with the S6 just to use apps.

Moto Series

This phone is an absolute steal for its price. The Moto series are the best phones I have tried for their types.

in the Article: LG Shows Off the G4's QHD Display forum

I like a decent but not over the top display. As long as the UI and the processor can handle everything I throw at it, I am satisfied. Now that things are starting to go Octa-Core, its great to have tons of apps and not worry about lag and multi-tasking. Some of the Adreno and Krait Quad-Cores are by no means too shabby either. As long as there is enough storage in the phone as well, QHD displays are ...

Thank you. I sincerely hope so.

Qualcomm vs. Exynos

Does someone know if the Exynos processor is tested enough that it is worth the upgrade yet? I have heard that they went to Octacore to make up for lag. Thank You

if I had a dollar for every-time when I had T-Mobile and the network went to 2G or EDGE even when in a what was supposed to be 3G or LTE I could buy the company.

in the Article: T-Mobile Asking $780 for Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge forum

They can "ask" all they want. At that price point an alternative is to go on Ebay or Amazon and purchase an unlocked version instead of locking yourself into a contract with monthly payments meanwhile the Galaxy S7 comes out.

in the Article: Samsung Agrees to Preload More Microsoft Apps forum

I buy unlocked, root it after updating the software. Then remove all the bloat-ware/crap-ware that will not cause anything not to run correctly. Google puts almost a gigabyte of their own stuff on phones, even the non-carrier ones. It's ridiculous unless you know you will use g-mail, google+, Chrome, and maps.

Really nice phone. Other than the LTE, display and the camera, this phone is practically the same as the Moto G 1st Gen.

Not everybody is out on a witchunt looking to sue apple because the company is filthy rich and prosperous. There are principles to uphold as well and if indeed Apple is exercising bad business practices, they should be held to the same standards as everyone else.

Re: Moto E or Moto G?

in the Article: Hands-On: Motorola Moto E, 2nd Gen. forum

Budget=Moto E G is mainly bigger now with a slightly better display. The E now is on par perfomance-wise with the G just smaller with the display and display quality. So its almost an even handoff now between the two. The E has 4G and if Peru does not have 4G compatiblity with the phone, stick with the Moto E 1st generation. Just a dual-core processor.

Bloatware
Feb 25, 2015, 4:03 PM
in the Article: Hands-On: Motorola Moto E, 2nd Gen. forum

The hands on stated no bloatware. Google has thrown their proprietary bloatware all over the Moto E, G, and X. Anything and everything a Google app is on the phones unless you root the phones and then you lose the auto-updates for software. When Google bought Motorolas mobile division, this is when all their bloatware appeared on all the phones.

AT&T and T-Mobile for the US Version and mainly AT&T compatible in the states for the Global Version. In effect they pushed from a dual to a quad-core and stretched the screen size a little. Still kept the Moto E basics with the display quality. Nice tweaking for a 2nd Gen version. :)

Go Moto!

Excellent from dual-core to quad-core for the Moto E. Still waiting for the Moto G 2nd Gen with LTE. These are the most affordable line of really great android phones I have seen along with fantastic performance.

T-Mobile is the biggest 4G Data coverage scam on the market today. If I had a dollar for every time I went off a major road, interstate, or out of a major city and the phone went to EDGE/2G, I could save up enough $$$$$$ to seriously upgrade the network. :roll:

Then just go to another website. No one is obligating you to read anything here or yet condescend anyone here. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Ever hear of a forum? Blow your own mind. You apparently love to exercise your already big piehole. :wink:

Those were really great phones!!! I still have a fully functional 3595 and 6010. Though only usable for calls only and the rare text and no data, you can not beat them for durability and reliability. Can not say much on that for modern phones though.

in the Article: T-Mobile Offers Progress Report On Wideband LTE Rollout forum

T-Mobile can keep their network period. Anytime out of a downtown or densely populated area, it's hello EDGE, GPRS, or 2G. Even their voice coverage without roaming is on a par with Sprint.

More "bloatware". Usually when carriers preload stuff. You cannot uninstall unless you root the phone. Motorola does the same thing with Google stuff.

is more or less well covered. Hopefully nTelos spectrum there is outside of major towns and metro areas where T-Mobile severely lacks.

Yes. You are correct. When money is in a pinch though, I guess one has to sacrifice. MVNO's are a great alternative as well.

Sure T-Mobiles LTE network is fast. Just depart from a downtown area or the interstates and hello 2G, EDGE and GPRS. Might as well go with Sprint.

It's a shame. I guess Starbucks figures the more people in the stores, the more it gives them the appearance that they attract paying customers for their products when the majority are there for the Wi-fi and nothing else.

Not on all. There are those out there that let you call without the other party having the same app. Just have to do the research. And they are great sounding as well. I use them all the time. I have used my credit card number and nothing, I mean nothing has happened. These companies are legit and have high-security encryption just like T-Mobile for payments. I pay a "flat" price and no fees like T-Mobile with their billing.

More reason......

for more freeloaders taking up space in Starbucks and not buying Starbuck products.

Nice but.........

Anyone can download 1 of the countless ioS or Android apps that offer this same capability for much cheaper price points.

MVNO's
