Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

Imo some of those droid phones have really gone to far with the big screen idea. Iphone 4s screen seems a bit small, but iphone 5 screen seems optimal to me. Personally, I like a device that fits seamlessly in my pocket and a screen size such that I can use one hand and put my thumb anywhere on the screen. It just seems more practical to me unless youre watching something.

Buddy is wrong. They might be better in some aspect of software development for him (i work for a silicon company, and let's just say it's easier to get our stuff in windows phones than droidz or iphones, which is a knock against us imo), but the things will be a bust imo. No one wants.

Sounds like that one iphone commercial really nailed it home for you.

My favorite iPhone commercial is the panorama thing within the last 3 months.

iPhones have had panorama apps for 3+ years, they just integrated into the OS - so lolz.

My experience with the droid was the opposite (droid x2 a while back); it just want even functional. The crashes happened, and a lot of other weird bugs. My music would randomly pause, play, or rewind - its pretty tilting if your in the middle of a set or something. Lastly, my battery was really volatile. Some days I had great battery life and other days it would be a few hours with no real use before it drained dead. I do like the widgets though.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

do droid phones have anything like siri? Either integrated or an app? I use siri a ton and find it pretty useful/convenient.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

There are a crapton of voice assistants now, including on iPhone. Google Now is the one baked into Android. Pretty much does the same stuff, but more search-y instead of voice assistant-y.

Tbh I was in this same boat. I've always been a fan of small form factors. My very first cell phone was a Siemens sl55.

But the gsiii is sick.

I have not found size to be an issue. Still comfortably fits in all of my pockets.

I might literally know the least about phones of anyone under the age of 25. I have an lg rumor. It costs me money to receive picture mail. I just don't care.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

If you have tiny hands and a small penis I can see why the GS3 would be intimidating. Otherwise the huge screen is awesome. Also having a standard micro USB charger along with the ability to swap in batteries and memory cards is megaelite.

It could also easily be the situations in which I'm usually taking pictures, but the camera seems much much better than my gf's 4S

Performance on the new app is a little shaky as well.
