I have too many gigabytes of lossless files I lost the capability to sync ages ago. :)

 

Manual drag and drop works for me. My only exposure to Android is the Gingerbread OS in my Cowon D3. Works fine, though a tad slow due to an aging Telechips processor. These days I just delete FLAC files from the D3 and copy over whatever I want to listen to for that particular day.

For me, SD cards are too slow to do that, Also, I keep all of my music (Including lots of mp3 files that I have from before I got re-zeros) and so in my case I have to drag and drop every file then add all of them to a playlist, which is difficult when you move a lot of songs.

A real Android fan here.

 

Motorola Milestone 2 running Gigerbread.

Samsung Glaxy Tab 10.1 with USB connection kit.

Currently using my Motorola Atrix with the UERMs and Reshelled tf10s, pretty satisfied with the sound so far.

post #6 of 828

Got my ATT S2 yesterday, I love it.  Running stock for a few reasons, mainly that TouchWiz 4.0 is the only hardware accelerated UI that exists (both CM7 and MIUI don't support as I'm posting this).  32gb MicroSD and I can't agree with you more on your last point OP.

 

Is anyone else looking forward to the 27th? I was disappointed they cancelled the event but understand their reasons.  Ice Cream Sandwich is going to be great, and it's been released that the Nexus Prime will be on Tmo/ATT so I may be returning my purchase (buyers remorse rolleyes.gif)

Just switched from iPhone4 to Samsung Galaxy S2.  In my opinion this migration was an upgrade.

 

As the majority of mu music is in ALAC, I have installed PowerAmp and PalyerPro player apps. Both of them play alac and a broad range of other audio files. After testing both apps ended up choosing PowerAmp as the interface is much better and its a quite clever app e.g correcting songs titles.

Are you referring to the launcher when you mention hardware accelerated UI? That's not the Roms fault, that's just an app they include. You won't need hardware acceleration, it's got a dual core processor!


I'm looking forward to it because of ICS, and it will most likely be coming to Verizon. :)
and there may be a cyanogenmod 8 that I could flash.

I like poweramp as well, but I use winamp now that my trial ran out.

And to everyone who is having trouble syncing any files, I figured out how to do it in winamp. You have to go Preferences->Portables->Advanced and then add ;(filename) to the list such as ;Flac or ;ALAC

Interesting, you running the Galaxy tab via kit to a DAC?  

 

I was about to jump on the S2 bandwagon up to about a week ago till I learned about the Nexus Prime.  Hoping Icecream Sandwhich will let the Prime run as a digital transport.

I am hoping ICS will do that and am waiting for the Prime too, will be my Christmas present, even if an early one ;)

 

On 3.1 I have not tried yet as I do not have a DAC where I am now, will try in 3 weeks. Someone tried on SGSII and it did not work.

The Nexus Prime should be announced on Oct 19th so let's keep our fingers crossed that the hardware and ICS address the audio issues and implementations.  Otherwise, Google and its fragmented OEM partners will be so far behind to be able to compete against the MFi connector ecosystem that Apple has built on mobile, CE, auto, and home integration.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus has just been announced and showcased!

In all honesty, I'm not very impressed with the new features. Many of them really seem to be taken from other platforms and tweaked/slightly improved.

And the incognito mode and swipe to remove notifications have been in cyanogenmod for a while now...

in on this chit

 

Currently using an HTC Aria on ATT, looking to upgrade to the HTC Vivid if I can get it at the $99 promotional price. Also running an HTC Flyer tablet. Love it so far. Very fast and stable. Will probably grab an Asus Transformer Prime and give the Flyer to the kids. Do not miss Apple products at all. I laugh when my girl has to tether her iPhone in order to update it.

I pre-ordered a Motorola Razr and hope to get it within the next few days. I am going on holiday on wednesday, so may not be able to use it until I come back, but really waiting for it.

Good choice! Although I'm a bit weary of the non-removable battery and moto's bootloader stance (locked up tight) I think it'll be a great device, assuming Motorola doesn't release any debilitating updates that require battery pulling like they did on the droid x.
