BGF - I've heard bad things about Shopping Square. I'd rather pay $30 more and buy from Kogan.

new phone for me this year too. my hd2 is running ICS so i'm in no rush to get one, but my screen is cracked and it's starting to annoy me..

should think the sgs3 is the front runner but i'm just gonna wait til anandtech benchmarks the new omap against the new snapdragon against the exynos against the rest and then decide based on a bar graph lol

nah no dust for me brah i still got a screen protector on. the lighting behind the crack is fucked up though and when i use the phone in landscape shit goes out of wack.

i'm actually hoping the next google phone is a motorola droid nexus or something with a keyboard, that shit would own. i really want a phone that's running vanilla android (or at the very least a very active xda community)

I've used a screen protector the entire life of my phone due to my trade job - my previous phone's screen got all rough and rugged within a few weeks :X But somehow, there's dust behind the screen. It's as if a big puff of it got sucked in via the bottom right corner and sprayed out. Once I upgrade phones I may try repair it.

Debunked by Samsung. April is one of their new LTE capable Droids, not the S3. S3 more like June/July in time to rain on iPhone5s parade.

Sensation XL is due to get ICS update this month. Looking forward to seeing how HTC have intergrated it with Sense.

By all reports the Sensation line will be receiving a 'lite' version of Sense 4.0 with ICS.

Samsung said they weren't and they are pretty honest in most cases. I won't deny an April S3 release but it's looking more like an LTE version of a beefed up S2.

Seems to be so that Google can raise awareness of other content they want to cross-sell that was previously buried in other locations.

Was just reading a piece about how 2 out of every 3 'Droid anti-malware apps don't work.

Anyone got any recommendations as far as apps that DO work?

What do you want anti malware on your android for? Is it really that big of an issue?

So my android 'market' has been updated to the 'play store' Apart from the name, nothing has really changed. But supposedly, google's master plan is to integrate apps, books, music and video all into the one store.

Ok so I'm buying the Galaxy Nexus this weekend, down to $450 now from Kogan. Might as well, the SGS3 won't be out until like June.

The size and shape of the nexus put me off when i used it, i much prefer the look of the s2. if i were in your position id probably wait for the s3.
Sometime this week i wanna update my s2 to 4.0, fuck waiting for Vodafone to do it...
