Should I get a Droid 2 or Droid X?
Fuck yes, Galaxy S actually got a decent Froyo firmware update. The benchmarks are nearly the same but it has flash player 10 and all that jazz. [URL]http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=769400[/URL]

Is there any itunes-esque way of putting music files on my Galaxy S (Say through a media player?) I just drag and drop but everytime I do some of the files fuck up and some become corrupted or lose sound quality.
[QUOTE=Ir1shfox;24476672]lose sound quality.[/QUOTE] that may have something to do with the fact that the speaker in your phone is smaller than a quarter.
[QUOTE=ButtsexV2;24476816]that may have something to do with the fact that the speaker in your phone is smaller than a quarter.[/QUOTE] It's not really the volume output, more just every so often the song pauses and crackles showing that the files were transfered badly I reckon. It used to happen on my old LG when I put songs on to it but didn't expect the same problems with this phone. How are you guys putting music on your phones? I'm dragging and dropping in and around 600 songs in one go? Bad idea?
Apparently the DroidX 2.2 leaked OTA update is going to cause problems for those who updated to it early. [url]http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-news/76189-motorola-warns-about-leaked-droid-x-android-2-2-update.html[/url] Although, the 2.2 that was leaked has no problems, and will most likely be the last update the DroidX will get, so those who don't want to drop back to 2.1 to get the official probably have nothing to worry about.

So I just rooted my 2.2 moto droid while I wait for november to get an upgrade. What ROM should I get? I was looking a Cyanaogen 6, but are there any other one with more features?

Probably better than whatever shit you have. except indefinitely so. because i have patience and i'm not easily wowed.

If you keep holding off because of a minor problem or because something better is on the horizon you'll never buy anything. There is always going to be something on the horizon, and nothing is going to be absolutely perfect. You probably should have gotten the EVO. I don't know how widespread the screen issue is, but it probably only affected a handful of people. And the framerate issue is kind of dumb reason to not buy it. Just in my personal opinion, there isn't any need to get OMG OC 2 THE MAX gaming performance out of a phone. Android doesn't even have that many games right now, so the gaming performance is somewhat pointless.

I gotta problem, don't think it's thread worthy. Device: G1 Carrier: Orange Country / Language: English OS / Browser / build number (if applicable): Eclair Well my phone froze up recently and I had to wipe/recover, but since trying to import my contacts, it just goes to 100% but then they don't show up. However, I have recieved texts and it shows their name and number and when I have dialed the number it shows up as ringing that number with the name (say home or something) So if anyone has had this, please help [url]http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Google+Mobile/thread?tid=1d371233c862b9d6&hl=en[/url] [editline]07:17PM[/editline] fixed, don't worry
I have a HTC legend, except I slept on it and the screen cracked so it's currently being repaired. would recommend though. [editline]10:13PM[/editline] [QUOTE=M_B;24507522]stuff[/QUOTE] but dude if you never buy anything because there's always something better just around the corner you'll never buy anything, especially in fields such as phones and other gadgets as technology is moving kinda fast round about now. I'm all for being intelligent and looking at (for example) all the handsets from the past and next few months and deciding which is honestly best value, best quality or best suited to what I want, but if you just say "well I won't bother with an android 2 handset because android 3's gonna be out soon" when as far as I'm aware (please correct me if I'm wrong) there haven't even been any android 3 handsets officially announced yet, you'll just end up procrastinating and never buying anything. Now that's not necessarily a bad thing (it'll certainly save you money), but on the other hand you'll be kinda phoneless. [editline]10:16PM[/editline] Also not buying a phone because the shops were shut when you went to buy it does not make you a "cautious customer", as it seems to be based on chance.
it's not like i'm never going to buy one fuck it's just that buy the time i finally got around to getting one newer better shit was already on its way. every 9 months or so new shit comes out and that new shit is hot shit for another 9 months. i want to get that at the start of the 9 months, not half way through, not towards the end, the beginning. get my money's worth. buying a galaxy S now, in my opinion, would be retarded because it's nearing the end of that 9orso months [editline]02:54PM[/editline] for example, it's like buying the highest end videocard of brand X's a series card, right before b series launches. it's dumb.
just buy a fukin galaxy s bro!!!
Agreed.
