Or is there a way to unlock it and keep the warranty alive ?
My plan is to use this phone in India and Singapore.
Currently every single major smart phone is a black slab with a large touch screen. When will a company change that form factor and introduce or reintroduce a different form factor? Will we see smart phones with flip screens, similar to the original RAZR, or something new that is not a black slab?
I've read several reviews about the device. Overall they are convincing me to buy the defy+. But the camera seems bad or mediocre in all reviews and some reviews mention bad build quality, that makes me unsure I'd like some information from owners about that. Is the camera usable? Only with great light and no movement? Or isn't is that bad? Is the build quality bad, OK or good? Pretty important for a phone that's supposed to be "life proof".
I rooted my phone and I attempted to install the OTA ( I performed the necessary steps to keep my phone rooted), but the update didn't install correctly. However, I'm constantly reminded to install or download the update and it's getting annoying. Does anyone know if you can disable this notification using SQL Lite Editor or by any other means?
P.S. I'd rather not deal with unrooting and rerooting my phone and am trying to avoid it by any means possible.
I want something that can be used for calls, daily listening at work and is versatile enough for running. I don't care so much about being able to run in the rain, but if sweat could be an issue that would be annoying. I am almost 6 feet tall and have a normal size head, hopefully that isn't a deciding factor though.
I just want something that I can pair my laptop, iPhone and possibly PS3 with and not look like I have a monstrosity on my head.
I've been using a Motorola Droid for the past 2 years. It's starting to act wonky, and I have an upgrade. I've been wanting the Samsung Galaxy S II/ Samsung Function all month but there's no US release (press release is expected August 29th). I loved the RAZR and enjoyed the Droid most of the time I've owned it. Should I get the Samsung or wait even longer for a Google-Moto device?
If the other Android licensees no longer perceive that they will be treated fairly and openly by Google, will they explore other OS options? Everyone seems to think, yes, and they say Windows Phone 7 next, but what about webOS? I'd have to think HP's licensing terms might be better, with the imperative of growing the user base. Don't Samsung, LG, and most likely HTC, have to think about it - if for no other reason than to improve their bargaining position with Microsoft?
I'm wondering if there's anyone who owns both who could speak to the pros and cons of one tablet over the other. A friend of mine asked, but I'm not really the most knowledgeable person with Android tablets, so I thought I'd turn it over to you guys.
Would like to know which manufacturer is not nerfing cool features and not installing bloatware so that I can browse that manufacturers products and only consider specs. If there is no saint then just opinion on the least obnoxious will be great. No #apple or #WP7.
