Robespierre in a Cape

Irrelevant distinction. They number things with a dart board.
Apparently they paid $0 for the naming rights, but will be doing some reciprocal marketing of Android on product packaging.jayhoz said:The Key Lime Pie lobbyist is going to get shit canned for this one.
I wonder how much Nestle paid them.
sonsoftrotnixon said:Just picked up a Motorola Moto X to try for a month. Pretty solid phone as far as the features but I've noticed that nearly everyone I've talked to has trouble hearing all but about every other word unless I'm on speaker. It must be the noise cancellation built into the speaker but it's annoying. Anyone else having issues? Looks like it's going back which is a disappointment because it's the perfect size for me (coming from an Iphone 4s). I hate to go to the HTC one or S4.
I haven't had any issues with mine (on USCC) - in fact, I've loved it. The near-complete lack of bloat is incredible, Google's supervision appears to be a godsend
I finally figured out that it's actually a signal strength issue at my office, and not the phone. All the calls I've had trouble with were because I was in my office with shitty signal. Outside and at home, no issues. I may have to get an amplifier which is odd because I never had issues with the Iphone 4s I had (nor the previous androids).
The only complaint thus far is that the camera on this phone is absolute junk. It's light sensor has trouble telling whether it should open/close the shutter depending on what I'm pointing at. Otherwise I'm pretty happy and have decided to keep it.
I have no complaints about my battery and I have 3 different ones that I change out with an external charger. I think I am going to stick with the 3.SoxFanInCali said:I never had an S3 but I compared my S4 to my co-workers' S3. The screen is a bit bigger and has better resolution, with no virtually no change to the size (S4 is a bit thinner). The biggest difference I've heard about is the battery. I've never had any trouble getting through the day without charging, even when using it pretty heavily.
Blacken said:I have a hard time caring about the difference between "staggeringly fast" and "tremendously fast". We have hit the point where apps are not going to be demanding more CPU time in the near future and there isn't a ton they can do with it anyway. Specs mattered to me a lot more a couple generations ago, but at this point...who really cares?

CPU's have been doing this for years. Intel was caught having the compiler drop inner loops from some benchmarks a few times IIRC.
Maybe. This is still just a rumor, although one with sufficient force behind it to likely be true.jayhoz said:Nexus 5 To launch end of October.
kwa1430 said:Looking at making the switch from iPhone to Android. Bought a Nexus 7 last year and really enjoy the Android experience. Main use is for work, email and apps centered on travel. I am on Verizon mainly due to the nation wide service since I travel around the US for work. Right now, leaning towards either the Galaxy S4 or Droid Maxx or Moto X. Droid Maxx right now in the lead due to best battery life and pretty clean droid experience. Not a big fan of Touchwiz and prefer a pure Android expereince.
How is it possible that you're still on 2.3?rembrat said:I just ordered the Nexus 5.
I'm pretty excited because I'll be jumping from 2.3 to 4.4 android. That's like going from jacking into a sock to banging Kate Upton.

SumnerH said:I just picked up an LG G2. It's snappy as heck with a great display and I'm looking forward to the battery life (which is supposed to be significantly better than the Galaxy S4 or Moto X). The biggest knock on it in reviews is the button placement, something that doesn't bother me (the power and volume buttons are on the back, rather than the side). I'll let you know if I run into any problems or any cool features.
