RT Redux?

Sounds like Windows RT with a different name.

One step to solve this issue.

There is one thing EVERY iDevice owner should have. Two words OTTERBOX DEFENDER!!! Why? iPhones, iPads & iPods are not cheap devices. A OtterBox is a tough case to protect what has become a popular albeit delicate piece of computing hardware.

It is a feature phone. Why does it need a quad core CPU and a gig of ram?

Why don't they all just get together and form one uniform payment system instead of having as many as we do.

Re: Not a upgrade

in the Article: ZTE ZMax 2 Headed to GoPhone and TracFone forum

I have the original ZMAX and it is a good midrange phone. But what gets me is that it is the same phone, except the screen is smaller, Battery is smaller, it comes with Android 5.1 and it is on AT&T and Tracfone. Why isbt goibg to be on MetroPCS? Doesnt make sense not have the successor on the same carrier the original came out on. There is no point to buying the successor. I have mine carrier unlocked, ...

Not a upgrade

Sounds like more of a downgrade the a upgrade. Smaller screen and the rest of the specs are the same.

Awful Specs
Sep 4, 2015, 7:11 PM
in the Article: Hands on with the CAT S40 forum

While I am aware that you could most likely pound a nail into a 2X4 with this phone. Don't expect great performance. It is has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210. It's specs for ruggedness are great. But I would look somewhere else if you want decent performance.

Google is NOT Microsoft! You also have Apple (Which is a monolith unto it's self), BlackBerry (Who was the king of Smartphones at one point), Microsoft who is King of the Desktop's. The EU needs to worry about there internal issues, like fixing Greece. Which is more important then a damned OS.

Android 5.0.2 is available for first Gen Moto G

While the official Android 5 (Lollipop) ROM is going through soak tests, albeit not to successfully, there are several custom Lollipop ROMS are available. The best of the crop is "Candy5" available at http://the-candy-shop.co/candy5.html It is based mainly on Cyanogenmod 12 and a few others. it is the most feature complete Lollipop rom available. You also have the official Cyanogenmod 12 rom' https://download.cyanogenmod.org/?dev ice=falcon It is a bit rough around the edges, but still functional.

Difference between 1st and 2nd Generation Moto G
Nov 18, 2014, 10:39 AM
in the Motorola Moto G (GSM, 2nd gen.) forum

I don't really see any compelling reason to upgrade to a 2nd gen Moto G. CPU is pretty much the same, 3MP more on main camera isn't compelling enough, Storage space is the same and the only thing that I could appreciate more is the ability to use a SD Card. If Lenovo continues the the Moto X and G line I hope the next version has more features to compel me to upgrade. If not. Then I don't ...

First Smart thing in a while
Jun 16, 2014, 3:32 PM
in the Article: Sprint Expands LTE Roaming Agreements forum

First smart thing Sprint has done in a long while. That and I think they are preparing when the FCC, FTC, DOJ, SEC and a few other agencies deny the T-Mobile merger.

Don't see this happening
May 12, 2014, 12:40 AM
in the Article: T-Mobile Wants $1B Break-Up Fee If Sprint Deal Fails forum

I don't see this going through for a few reasons. 1. The oversight agencies of this government don't want to risk losing competitiveness. By Sprint buying T-Mobile they will also acquire MetroPCS. So in one action they would remove two Carriers. T-Mobile being a actual carrier and MetroPCS being a MVNO owned by T-Mobile. Removing 2 competitors would limit customer options. 2. I suspect that Verizon and AT&T will start lawsuits about how this could impact customer choice. 3. Sprint is only ...

Even though iDEN is gone... on Sprint, it makes a decent 2 way
Mar 26, 2014, 1:14 PM
in the Motorola i1 forum

Even though iDEN is gone on the Sprint network, this phone makes a decent 2 way walkie talkie. Off network direct connect thankfully doesn't require a cellular connection. At least it isn't a total waste of money.

Going in the right direction

in the Article: Next Windows Phone Will Support Cheaper Phones forum

I like what I am seeing so far. Loosening the reigns a bit is not a bad thing. Allowing more hardware options will attract more hardware manufacturers and allow the price point to be lower allowing Windows Phone to compete more readily with Android. Now the question that begs to be asked. Will it work? Will it attract more manufacturers? Time will tell.

Re: Those speeds tho
Jan 9, 2014, 3:14 AM
in the Article: T-Mobile Expands 4G LTE to 273 Cities forum

I guarantee those speeds will go down when more people start using LTE with T-Mobile and more MetroPCS user start getting T-Mobile compatible phones. If T-Mobile can keep the speeds up, then and only then will they earn those braggings rights. Time will tell.

128-bit is not coming anytime soon. Currently the main advantage.to 64-bit processors is the elimination of the 4GB Barrier. On PC's that is working great. However on smartphones we are just now coming close to that with the just announced. Samsung Galaxy J which has 3GB of ram and talks of the S5 and Note 4 having 4GB of ram. 64-bit will allow up to 16 exabyte which translates to 16 Billion Gigabytes. and also all high end Android. smartphones use 32-bit ...

Re: I think
Sep 18, 2013, 12:12 AM
in the Article: NTIA Petitions FCC to Mandate that Carriers Unlock Phones forum

The only reason a phone works like crap on an other network is simple. Frequency, if you have a TMobile Galaxy S2, 3, 4 on AT&T you aren't going to use the full potential of that phone. TMobile HSPA+, HSPDA, HSDPA and LTE run on different frequencies then AT&T. And the same is somewhat true of VZW and Sprint.

I think I will stick with Beautiful Widgets and Weather bug. I get the same features and more. While I am sure people who are use to Yahoo will like it, I personally find it limiting. There better applications out there for free that do more.

I agree as well. The more choices people have the better the field may be. As of right this moment the only Mobile OS's that seem to have everyone's attention is Android and iOS, however you have Windows Phone, QNX bases Blackberry OS 10, Firefox OS, Tinzen (which is making serious waves in South Korea) and Ubuntu OS which is making slow progress. There are choices you just need to dig. But I agree with having more choices then just two. ...

Yes, the new Blackberries to have some sweet hardware, hand down. But just because you have the better hardware doesn't mean you are going to use it well. Agreed. Profitability with BB has been based on its uniqueness and its ability to do what other platforms can not. The ONLY thing that Blackberry can do natively that other can is use BES and BBM. Since then Android, iPhone, Windows Phone have gained dominance over businesses when it comes to corporate ...

However, unlike Windows Phone , Android is a proven platform that is insanely popular. While Android may not be the save all OS, it sure as hell seems to be at this juncture. And on top of it it is IMHO better then WP7 & 8.

No, you are correct about Blackberry pulling out of this hole they put themselves in. However for them to survive they will need to shine better then Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG, Sony and even ZTE and Huawei. Can they do it, I believe they can. But they will need to devote every ounce of energy and creativeness to do such that.

Too little too latr
Aug 12, 2013, 8:11 AM
in the Article: BlackBerry to Explore Strategic Alternatives forum

As much as I hate to admit it, Blackberry lost its foot hold on the market by staying stagnant, when iPhone and Android landed they stayed complacent by staying with their Java based OS on very under powered hardware. And in the time it took for them to bring out modern looking smart phones, you have had the rise of Android as the dominant OS (not looking for a Android vs iPhone vs Windows Phone vs whatever else contest), ...

MetroPCS HSPA APN Settings

I am thinking about going to MetroPCS when my area has the BOYD plans for TMobile HSPA+, GSM, LTE, UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA, AWS network. What are the APN settings for that? Is it T-Mobile's APN settings or MetroPCS's APN settings?

Here we go again. I hope the FCC, DOJ, FTC and everyone else shoots it down. AT&T does not need more spectrum, like Verizon they have the mother lode. The Deathstar is out again.

actually there are a good amount of people who download from "black market" apps like Aptoide who don't have the security of Google Play. But like all other platforms, there is a chance of getting affected.

in the Article: FCC Approves SoftBank Buying Sprint Buying Clearwire forum

The SoftBank Merger has NOTHING to do with spectrum, if it did have ANYTHING to do with spectrum they would not have killed off iDEN, which did have to do with valuable spectrum. Sprint's major drawback has been they have been using the PCS band for cellular, 1xRTT and EVDO. They were partners with Clearwire so they could use the WiMAX which runs in the 2.5 Ghz range. All of which have horrible penetration when it comes to buildings, ...

I have no problems with innovation, it drives the market and people desire to have the latest and greatest. But forgive me if I am wrong, but didn't Apple sue the hell out of Samsung for rounded corners on icons among other things, Microsoft for the Recycle Bin. So with that being said, who is going to sue Apple for the features that scream Android, WebOS, Blackberry and WP8? I know Steve Jobs Quoted Pablo Picasso with "good artist copy, great ...
