    How reliable are Quadrant scores? I got 3120 on my stock SGS2.
    In real world use this phone rarely lags and is incredibly quick. The Quadrant chart says it's faster than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, I thought that was newer?

    Pretty much useless tbh.

    Real world experience > benchmark scores any day.

    Not very. Both are very good phones. And in the end the GN has a larger screen so 50 - 60 fps on the GN is a far superior output to 50 - 60 fps on the 480x800 SII

    Not only larger but 720p, much more demanding to get the same performance.

    What do people think of the new Galaxy Tab?

    Here is a preview.

    It's such a minor upgrade, should it even be considered an upgrade?

    I have my Touchpad lying about. I really can't find a use for a tablet. Initially I used it as a coffee table internet browser but my phone is quicker at that and more convenient. I now only really use it as a mini telly/media device in my room. It's useless for notes and taking to uni. It's fairly redundant and I wouldn't bother with one again. It looks nice and it's great to have that extra real estate, but it falls in to that gap that is neither a computer nor a smartphone and hasn't quite found it's place IMO.

    I use a mini bluetooth keyboard with my touchpad when taking notes, find it fine.

    Sky Go coming next week but only to Samsung and HTC devices. I can see myself using it; i hope the streaming quality is good. Sky are also going to have iPlayer on their boxes and have announced opening up Anytime+ to all broadband services. They're feeling threatened I think by the likes of Virgin and Netflix. They are still well over priced though.

    I don't know if I will use it or not. I'd like to, but the two device limit means I'll either have to lose my Xbox or deny my mate free sky... and they ain't too bad if you can blag a good deal...:awesome:

    So does that mean you can only register two devices or that streaming is limited to two devices at once? I've got Netflix on several devices but streaming is limited to two devices simultaneously.

    I wish the PS3 had Sky Go.

    Yuh.

    Was working fine until yesterday and it's totally stopped connecting. "Authenticating" or "Obtaining IP" then to Disconnected :sad:

    I've fixed permissions and reinstalled the ROM (without wipe), no avail.

    Don't put in those values exactly though, just restate the ones that are already in there... SSID,PW,Security..

    Should work with normal networks too... if not, more restarts... mine went funny for a few days, but now it's as good as ever..

    Yeah, it happens on normal networks too... just reset the values that are already there and restart a few times.
