I take it as nobody responded to my thread on the shiny new iPhone 5
from Apple that nobody here is interested in iPhone's ? I was expecting
at least a couple of for's and againsts.
It's an Apple. Only non-techies attracted by shiny-shiny things would buy such an old fashioned item. The rest of us buy things that actually work.
Maybe you are all Android fans then ?
Well , i am an Android fan myself and have been using Version 4.0 - Ice
cream sandwich for the past three months which was the version installed
on my Samsung Galaxy S3 when i bought it. I have been very pleased with
it - both the phone itself and the operating system. I went for the S3
,by the way because it has a large screen so it doubles up as a small
tablet as well , saving having two devices - still small enough to carry
Oooh. Snap. I'm a reasonably newish Galaxy S3 man. Can't fault the phone apart from the battery life if you are a constant fiddler with it. It's ok if you stop and let it rest. In some ways, it's a little too large compared to the olden days of a 'comfortable size' phone. I do have problems about where to keep it on my body without crushing it or it falling out. I'm wondering if eventually phones will get too big. But regarding all its functions, well, it just works and it works fast, and it is my essential assistant to living!
I used a freely available developer and enthusiasts tool called Odin to
update the ROM on my phone. This tool is part of the so called 'Galaxy
S3 Toolbox' whuch can do other stuff as well which i would be reluctant
to try on my nice shiny almost new phone i have to say.
There was always a small risk it could all go horribly wrong of course ,
but i am glad i took the bold move of having a go and trying something a
little potentially dangerous.
Hmmm. You are tempting me, sir. I'm always slightly concerned about messing with my 'main' device, but you've made me itch a bit.
Anyway , just though i would share that with you on here , in case
anyone was interested.
Yes, me. Thanks.
