The Apple store in Yorkdale mall in Toronto has no checkout counter / desk. 100% of transactions are completed by people walking around in blue shirts carring iphones that have a monsterous attachment on them.
Slower processor ?
1700Mhz x 4 Cores isn't enough for you, eh? Seems like the same / similar processor to the HTC One, which is a blazing fast smartphone. Blazing. You must be running some high polygon count apps on your phone for calling a 1.7Ghz Quad-Core processor "Slow". The mobile processors in phones today are faster than many peoples home computers. I have no idea how anybody could be upset, or think that this kind of processor might be slow.
Anybody played GTA V ?
Install the same deterrant in real devices as is installed in the Life Invader missions in GTA V. Someobdy tries to use a stolen phone, BOOM. No more head. Seriously, that would be a pretty damn good deterrant.
Re: "On the bright side, you can swap batteries if you need to"
I've seen you make this argument many many times before, and it always rings true. If one manufacturer can make a super high end device with a removable battery, any manufacturer can. This is a situation where I personally would not even consider buying a device unless it has both a micro SD card slot, and a removable battery. I would go for a slightly lower end device if it did offer that over a higher end device ...
Re: Not a Coolpad
Maybe, but I really wouldn't want to be using the touch interface on a maxi-pad. 8O
I'm noticing the phone says DUOS on the face, to the right of the ear speaker. I'm guessing this means the device supports Dual SIMs? Can somebody confirm this for me, as I have very limited internet access from where I am.
For the specs of this device, $99 is an amazing price. Stop complaining and saying it is worse than Huawei, you get what you pay for.
Re: We understand?
Ever been to Toronto ?
Re: We understand?
If that was true, then there would be no cell phones in: Parks, on Busses, in Trains, on Subways, on Streetcars, in Taxis, in Limos, etc etc. You aren't buying a ticket to be bathed in silence for the duration of your flight. It's quite the opposite, as you know jet engines are loud. Your ticket is for transportation. I like your idea, however, maybe a separate class should be created on the planes for individuals who ...
"""We understand that many passengers would prefer that voice calls not be made on airplanes....."" Yes, because as soon as you press the "Send" button on your phone, the plane EXPLODES. It's 100% true people, I saw it in a Rage comic. These are archaic beliefs. I understand that lots of confused or misinformed people would prefer that voice calls not be made on airplanes becuase they think that in every situation, something bad will happen that will result ...
Re: How else would you get extra memory on your iPhone?
You'd have to get some kind of cloud service, which means you will probably pay more, and then use more data, so you'll possibly pay more for a data feature. Or, you could forgo (sp?) all that and just get a phone that takes an SD card.
NJ is REALLY appealing these days
Yet another reason not to live in New Jersey. So, they have one of the worst Airports in the country, they want to make texters liable when they should or "OUGHT" to have known they are texting somebody who is driving, they want to outlaw texting at a red. I also remember watching a Devils stanley cup finals game in East Rutherford, and half the damn arena was empty in a finals game! Oh, and Zoolander ...
Re: How does warranty and insurance work?
As far as T-Mobile goes - - - For the warranty, even if you are paying for additional warranty coverage, with this kind of customized device, you'd probably want to go through the manufacturer, and not the carrier. You'd probably get a generic device in return. As far as Insurance goes - this device is not eligible to be insured by T-Mobile. Even if the device is ordered direct from manufacturer, even if its a version that is ...
Re: Why no MicroSD?!
That has nothing to do with phones, or phone manufacturers. That has to do with the SD card manufacturer, and the quality of their process. As a rule of thumb - when you buy anything that has any kind of Flash memory, or any memory cards, Format them Three (3) times before you use them. I have purchased SD cards that have memory access errors pop up on the 3rd format. That's how you know they are no ...
This fragmentation talk is just ridiculos. I have an HTC G2 and a 5th Gen iPod, and the two operating systems are pretty much the damn same. Just admit it people, they are the damn same, except one is more customizable. I see no difference in stability, all the apps that I use are available to both. On-device settings are GENERALLY the same. At first glance, simply looking at a home screen from each OS, they look very much ...
".......and seen the same movie before."
Hopefully he isn't talking about the movie "Burried"
Re: That is going to need a case.
I agree with you - after all this testing / usage, you'd think they would have it nailed down 100% and release a solid product. ... but remember, This is Motorola, sooo.. not like they have released any great phones lately. And yes, I know they released the Moto X.
Same here, me thinks this is an attempt at a bad pun. Kinda funny though, almost an analogy for the entire wireless industry as far as regulations are concerned - Handicapped.
Re: That is going to need a case.
Well based on how it looks, the pieces will probably either lock into place, or, it looks like you can use something like a rubber / metal band that would be stretchy and wrap around the phone and hold everything together. It would make more sence if there were tiny screws that you could use to secure the pieces, like glasses sized screws.
Thousands of people have the HTC One. To suddenly burden the network with every single one of those people completing this large download would impact service, meaning that if T-Mobile did that, they would be in violation of their own Terms & Conditions which state you may not negatively impact the state of the network or cause undesirable operation.
Re: Great phone but would make a few changes
20 MP is not enough for you? It is doubtful that the 41 MP sensor would have a cost similar to the 20, if they included the 41, most likely the price point would be pushed up. Also, I very much doubt the human eye can tell the difference between a full resolution 20MP or 41MP picture.
If you have an MBB device, you can connect the phone to the MBB by wifi. Technically, you are then still downloading it over the cellular network. This method should work for you.
Re: The screen is lousy
I have two buddies who have GS II and GS III, I have used both of their phones, and the GS II is about two years old. Not only is there no "ghosting" on the screens, but there are no anomalies of any kind, and the GS II's screen is still bright, sharp, and beautiful, much nicer looking than any iPhone screen, too.
It probably will, but it will use proprietary apple punch cards
Re: Think Twice Before Rapid Charging.
Excellent post, I agree with everything you pointed out. It should be an easy 2 second process to replace a battery in a phone. With all the advances in technology, one would think a removable battery would always be available. I was just thinking how people would feel if a car company made a car with a battery that was not removable / replacable without an engine replacement. With that kind of comparison, I think it will help ...
Fingerprint Scanner security
As far as maximum security goes, the fingerprint scanner is a step back. If you have a PIN that you never tell anybody, nobody will know it unless they guess. If you have serious information on your phone, maybe security is also a serious issue for you. A professional can easily find, and lift your fingerprint off of almost any surface. Scan it at 2400 DPI, print it at 1200 DPI using raised ink, and then use ...
Re: Another Worthless App
Maybe - however, there are many, many other free apps that are available that do exactly that, and more. Off the top of my head? Text plus. I could probably think of more. Their app is redundant to the Nth degree.
Advertisements on this site
The ads on this site have gone crazy. I'm getting ads that appear to be from google that are spreading outright lies, I see ads for asian call girls, I even saw an ad that said best buy was the BEST place to buy a phone! Maybe it is, but what's up with the Asian callgirl ads? Seriously?
Re: Only 2G Data is free...
That, or you can just not use Youtube and enjoy your damn vacation! What a concept! 8O
Re: Might as well shut down the rest of the network
Easy fix for that, just make sure the new phone has a sim that is the same size as the old one, back up the contacts and restore them to the new phone, then send out a mass text message "This is my new number" there you go, all your contacts instantly know your new number. :o
They are CHARGING for this sleeve?
So let me get this straight - for the iphone, since it doesn't have NFC, to use this, and to have access to YOUR OWN MONEY, you have to pay them for an accessory? This "Sleeve" should be given out. There is no way I would even consider this, why should I have to pay to access my own money? This is like paying for a Credit card / bank account, ridiculous!
It does not cover all of Europe
Vatican city is not covered, neither is Cyprus or Slovenia. Edit: Georgia is not covered either.
I think the curvature is to avoid glare. Glare on my flat-screened device is a big problem, be it from lightbulbs or from the sun.. I'm thinking with the kind of curve it shows in the pictures, that would bring direct glare down to a minimum. Not sure, but it looks like it.
It highlights interesting tweets?
So my guess is that it will never, ever display anything. 8)
The Data is capped
You provided a link to all things D at the bottom of the article, the link was: http://allthingsd.com/20131002/target -confirms-brightspot-its-own-prepaid-mobile-b rand-with-plans-starting-at-35-per-month/ it says on that page the data is capped.
Re: I'm enraged!
I don't even have a windows phone and I am angry. It doesn't even seem like an app anymore! It seems like a re-direct to your web browser, which then just simply goes to the youtube website. Microsoft should have just removed the youtube app all together.
When was the last time you even used windows? Windows 7 and 8, including windows phone 8 are SOLID. They are very stable, very capable operating systems, and the best that Microsoft has ever made. There is nothing at all wrong with Windows, it doesn't matter what they made in the past.
Did you even read the article ?
I'm guessing you didn't. "The new iPhones will be sold at full retail price without a contract."
I had to take a step back when I read your post, man. I wasn't sure if I could handle the extra 10 Mhz, so I just went for the 486SX model. I mean damn! That's alot of extra speed! It's not like I'm playing games in 16-color mode or anything 8)
I think my 486 had more hard drive space than that...
