well, no one said anything so i got it. i thought it sucked. i also had a brief period with the galaxy nexus. don't believe the hype! read all the reviews. also, the lg nitro kind of blows. amoled screens and pentile kind of blow imo. unfortunately the razr is amoled which just does not look like all it is cracked up to be to me. i feel lcd is better. that puts me to a atrix2 which was also free. it works perfect and is built solid. it is a motorola after all. which indecently is now owned by google. so even if it does not get ics i am sure there wlil be a rom available from some group. anyways, the atrix2 has the same cpu as the nexus and razr at only 1ghz. somehow it benchmarks a tad faster than those too! a good deal for free. it took some trial and error but the job is done for the moment. oh, btw the nexus and nitro are horrible on the battery. especially the nitro. of course there is downside at that speed. what good is your fancy phone when the battery is dead lol. i hope this helps anyone. the atrix2 is not the absolute fanciest phone but it is still a current top phone, it is free and it works.

glad to see you got a phone you like at a price you like! (free)   im currently with sprint and might be changing in october but not sure to where.  currently using the samsung epic 4g touch and love it. its the first phone ive used that i dont have any complaints about.  absolutely beautiful screen. thin. super fast. large memory inside. very good camera. i thought it was a bit big at first, but now love the size.

Make sure you properly close the game.  The game will still proeed even if you close the program.  The Android version is very dissappointing; it's missing a lot of features compared to iOS.

xD, nah, it's draining the battery because I'm playing it all the time.  I wouldn't say it's disappointing, I do miss some of the features that my friends with iphones have, but an update should come out sooner or later.

Using the SGS 1 with just 2.3.5 gingerbread base, don't feel like flashing any custom rom as of the moment.
16gb with 4gb memory card, i was so sad when samsung announced that there won't be ICS for the SGS :(

i am really sorry to ask an incredibly stupid question. there appears to be no way to close the browser other than to kill the app? in fact i put the app killer on the desktop. all this stuff is running. that is a problem with branded phones. i am not going to flash a custom until ics though. how long do you guys think before miui or cm9 ics hits?

That's sort of the way that android works, programs are only cleared out of the RAM when it's full and you need to open up a new app.  It shouldn't slow down your phone having multiple apps open in the background.  I actually do use task manager to close too

Do not worry about apps running in the background. If they are not used, they are hibernated so that opening them takes less time. As long as you reboot your phone every 3-4 days you will be fine - get rid of task killer, you do not need it.

Flashing a new rom is totally worth it. I've got the captivate, and my battery life almost doubled when I switched to Darky's mod from the stock gingerbread. Never went back to stock, running ICS now and haven't run into any serious bugs yet.

I'm not sure, I don't have anything to test it with.
