Dunno if it's intentionally not live yet or not...

But the banner that has a link to a Sprint phone giveaway leads to a page that says "Error page not found."

Activity Thingy

What "activity" are they messuring? Views, posts, other?
How often does it updates?

The reason why I ask is because I've seen that it the activity meter seems to be static, it points towards more "activity" to some threads that been dead for ages, or even though there's more activity in other posts it stays pointing out to the same old one.

Thanks.

HEY RICH

More than once I've gone to order a battery for a custy, and it was out of stock and not anticipated to come in for a month, I'm certain manufacturers use the same battery for different models, but I have no way of knowing which ones are interchangeable. Is there a place on this site where I can look this up?


BTW if my spelling is atrocious it's your own darn fault for getting rid of spellcheck Razz Wink

Battery Life

What's a normal day of use for you guys?

I've had a few smartphones over the last 2 years and most handset's I've had, have barely made it through 10-12 hours of moderate use.

This is the configuration that I use:
Auto brightness, bluetooth radio off, wifi off, HSPA data on, no LTE, GPS off.

Apps that I have installed and are often pulling data from the network.
Gmail, Skype, Google Hangouts, Whatsapp, Line, Facebook Messenger (I've disabled Facebook notifications), Twitter.

I check my phone a few times during the days and chat a little bit, no more than 5 minutes each time and no more than 7-10 times between 6AM and 4PM.
I don't stream music or use online radio, I rarely watch videos online, but I often use the built in music...

Will phonescoop have it?

In order for this to work, however, sites need to add the "mobile-web-app-capable" meta tag.

Is PS experiencing issues?

Or is it just my server??

It's extremely slow from my end, not all post load completely.

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?

Hardware Usability

What do you, PS reviewers, base on to judge such category?? (Or, how do you rate a phone's Hardware Usability?)

Sorry, but based on your reviews, I don't fully understand what that category refers to, as some phones may have similar features on their hardware but are rated differently (I'm aware its different from Hardware Quality).

BlackBerry Bold 9900

Hi, guys!
I see that your page for the BlackBerry Bold 9900 shows it as discontinued with T-Mobile and AT&T. http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p= 3289
What is your source for that status? Curious as it is showing as active in AT&T.

...and we're back

We had an extended site outage today. I apologize for the inconvenience.

It was due to server maintenance scheduled by our hosting provider that ran about 11 hours longer than scheduled. We expected downtime of about three hours in the middle of the night, but things went awry and we had to wait for our hosting provider to fix things on their end. They ran into problems with the automated configuration of networking for a large number of servers (including ours) and had to fix it manually.

Again, sorry! Everything is back up and working now. We will continue to monitor for any post-maintenance hiccups.

New on the site: Photos pages & more

We've added a tab to our phone pages called "Photos". It collects our primary photos of a given phone together with any hands-on photos we've published of that phone, and links to the articles that feature those photos.

We've also made it so that the Photos tab and the (relatively new) News tab can be viewed before we've published a full specs page.

A good example at the moment would be if you search for "Q5". You'll find a link to our BlackBerry Q5 News page, and the Q5 Photos tab shows both the official and our hands-on photos.

As always, we'd love to hear feedback on these new site features. Smile

ADOBE FLASH PLAYER

I had the droid charge cell phone thru verizon and i was able to download the abobe flash player so I could watch cams like Port Everglades or Niagara Falls. I ungraded to the samsung galaxy s3 and i cant download that app. Verizon says it is because the phone operates under the jelly bean system. Does anyone know if they will soon be compatable and is there another app which works as good as adobe? any help would be appreciated.
