    im not convinced by those htc one x shots.
    they look like theyve used optimal conditions or staged them to get the best out of the camera

    my desire can look that awesome depending on lighting

    EDIT: do some research online suggests this device is a sealed enclosure meaning no battery pulling or replacement.
    thats not good for us modders

    I'm looking forward to the SGS3 specs. Although I feel it will share the same downfalls of no expandable memory and I dare say no accessible battery. I've also heard TouchWiz not being as robust and damaged screens in pockets for the SGS2.
    I'm still weighing up all my options I guess.

    Odd. Theres a good youtube video somewhere where they drop the SGS2 and the iphone4, face down from various heights and teh SGS2 came out much better

    i hope samsung dont follow suit and seal the batteries

    dare i say they are doing it to stop the prolonging of a devices life and scare off modders.

    well they dont like people modding too much, they only started to unlock the bootloader after people were threatening to boycot their products.
    If you leave it unlocked but make a device that cant do a battery pull when it hangs. it scares people from making that jump as you cant return it to warranty if its stuck. i suppose you could leave it powered on for 48hrs till it drains it self flat

    hahaha. Next they'll say that the li-on batteries do not have a safety cut off and not to let them drop below 10% ;)

    I've seen the same video too which left me perplexed with my friends tales of his work colleague. They're meant to be quite sturdy despite them being very thin and light.

    i cant imagine it being dual when htc and lg have also announced quads.
    samsung will battle to say at the front as it took them a while to get there

    What are all your thoughts on getting the first generation of quad core phones?

    You not worried?

    Not worried at all. I'm an early adopter of many things...

    End of the day its just a processor.

    Maybe I worry for nothing, I like to know everything about what I'm getting :)

    Is it just me, or is all this talk about dual core/quad core overlooking something? Surely it depends on what you plan to do with your phone?

    For example: If you're into heavy gaming or perhaps video editing then yes I can see the advantages of having multiple cores, but I'd rather use my PC for that. On the other hand if you're like me and just use your phone for calls, texts and surfing the web, then it's not going to make that much difference really.

    My desire is only a single core and does everything I ask of it with ease. I certainly have no complaints in the speed department.

    For me, a new phone should be stable, have expandable memory, good battery life and have the probability of a good dev community.

    I was looking at the HTC one x, the only thing putting me off is no sd card slot. Nice large internal memory though but looking at the Lg optimus 4x HD this has 16gb internal with an sd card slot able to use 64gb cards, looks the better option to me
