i'd love it if apps shut down if you held down the back button or something.

Does anyone here actually use their phone cam for anything but taking pics of random shit you need to remember etc.? I've never used it as a camera for taking nice pictures.

Rumors that this is the galaxy S 3. WTF is it doing in vietnam [img]http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/17k5kurjlqoxfjpg/xlarge.jpg[/img] Samsung's Galaxy SIII is due to launch officially on May 3rd. We've already seen some blurry images of what might be the phone—but now an even more convincing example has surfaced in Vietnam. Engadget reports that the handset showed up on Vietnamese site Tinhte—though the original page is now down. No worries: we still have the pictures and specs that were leaked. According to the leak, the phone—going by model number GT-I9300—packs: a 720 x 1184 4.6-inch display (that's 320 DPI), a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, a 2,050mAh battery, an 8-megapixel camera and 16GB of storage. There also appears to be some kind of plastic rim around this leaked device, making it look slightly larger than it actually is and disguising the edge of the handset. It's difficult to know for certain if this is the real deal, but the images certainly look more convincing than a lot of leaks we see. Also, Tinhte has in the past scooped both the current-gen iPad and the original Galaxy Tab prior to their official release—so it has strong past form.

[QUOTE=Hunt3r.j2;35643962]It's not the PenTile but the SoC that is lagging.[/QUOTE] Is the PenTile screen not an issue? I've read that it sucks, but everyone said the performance is great

[QUOTE=Oicani Gonzales;35648244]Is the PenTile screen not an issue? I've read that it sucks, but everyone said the performance is great[/QUOTE] you might be a bit disappointed with the camera or maybe with the performance if you really stress the phone; the screen problem is just blown out of proportion, you aren't going to hold your phone at 3 inches from your face, and at normal distance, the high pixel density makes up for it I think
Well, I don't care [I]much[/I] about the camera, since I only use it for the casual snap, but performance? I plan to play 3D games and shit, would it fail me? And I also heard that it's underclocked at 80%, couldn't I put it to 100%?
Listening to a few radio stations with TuneIn whilst reading to focus (easily distracted through sound), but the music is just a bit too loud. Is there a way to get to even lower volume levels with the phone?

Awww yeah, Slovenia finally got ICS! I have a question though, regarding chrome - how do I open tabs from my PC?It says I should login on chrome on my PC - which I am.

Otherwise no. [QUOTE=Oicani Gonzales;35648244]Is the PenTile screen not an issue?

Since the Nexus has a higher res screen it might not be so bad. Perhaps go in to a phone shop and have a look, see what you think.
I'll try to find a shop with a Nexus. Thanks!

Probably not the most demanding game out there for Android, but it works really well. I don't think 3D games are going to be an issue on the Galaxy Nexus for some time yet.
I wish mobile phone carriers didn't have anything to do with phones. They shouldn't have control of the OS in the first place. It would make life so much easier.

I think that's the main reason why Google added app disabling into ICS.
