    New Samsung phone announced. 4.5" SUPER AMOLED display, 1.2 Snap Dragon single core processor.

    Initial thoughts : 4.5 inch is too big. I use the Desire HD which is 4.3 and that is stretching on how big a screen should be. With one hand I can reach about 70% of the screen with my thumb. Such a big S-AMOLED screen :coma:.

    WhatsApp is a good one, it works cross platforms so you can bug all your iPhone friends if they have it too :p:

    back from my 1 week ban for posting a picture of a turkey getting stuffed lmao

    I can upgrade in february the earliest, any ideas what i should get/should i wait?

    LG optimus/star looks promising but LG have never been reliable phones from loads of people i know
    galaxy s2 sounds amazing with a 2ghz processor but i now hear the rumour has been corrected and it is 1.2ghz but not dual core?
    that samsung yoyo posted looks good but 4.5 is way too big. i'm all up for big phones but i recently tried out a desire hd in store and even at 4.3 it was getting kinda stupid.... but who knows, maybe its something you get used to

    Samsung seem to be doing well with Android atm.

    Is there any Android Apps that allow me to send free sms? (using wifi)

    thanks
    Definitely WhatsApp, although it does use quite a lot of battery - I was surprised at how many of my friends use it, so I barely have to send any texts any more.
    PLUS images, sounds, and videos are free to send as well!

    It also says that you have to pay after a year, but you can just uninstall, and re-install it according to a friend

    1GB of RAM, did I read correctly. This is certainly over kill, I have 600mb and I've never had less than 100mb free. :eek:

    They certainly are, it's great now they can focus on awesome hardware and leave software primarily to google.

    No news on Gingerbread atm, but I estimate around late Feb, I'm not too worried when it comes anyways since a lot of the new features were aesthetic which I think sense brings anyways.

    Only just announced, looks like a carbon copy of the DHD tbh. I think you'll have to wait a couple of weeks for more details on the phones announced at the AT&T summit.

    It does look like a beast, it's got a fingerprint recogniser apparently too...:confused:

    Thing is though these phones are gonna take a while before they become available in the UK. You might be waiting a couple of months before getting your hands on these beauties...

    The Motorola Tablet will probably be my first Tablet, hoping to get it around June ish. Though if it's really expensive I'll think otherwise. I'd like to see what HTC are doing too.

    Is it for anything specific or do you just want one?

    It's more an impulse buy Browsing on my phone is great enough but I'd rather not use it because I want to preserve battery, and it would be cool to just use this instead of a laptop. You not that big on tablets?

    I love them, just not their price tag. I was thinking of buying a really low end cheap android one but apparently they're pretty ****...I guess for £70/£80 you get what you pay for.

    I'd probably want to use them for gaming too though which is something that the app market doesn't really accommodate for unfortunately. I might buy one over the summer but tbh I reckon I'd end up buying an iPad unless something really amazing gets released that has Android.

    Yeah I hope they price them well. Just take the Samsung Galaxy Tab it was around the same price as the ipad, which makes you think, are Samsung serious. Why would I get that when the ipad is better. I might decide to go ipad simply because I could then get best of both worlds but then again having all google will be make things easier in terms of syncing and what not.

    If the Motorola/HTC one comes in at less than 500 I'll definitely give it a look.

    I might go into a shop and have a play around with the Galaxy Tab to see what it's like because it did seem like it was ludicrously overpriced. In terms of functionality I'd take Android over iOS any day but I guess we'll have to see what they pull out of the bag. I'd probably jailbreak the iPad as a given....
