    I don't blame you, Gapi... we've reset our countdown timers so many times the clocks are confused :rolleyes:

    NOW: Are those 11 standard days or 11 metric days? Hmmm...

    Being thanked and all is great, but when it starts going out like water in a none third world nation it just loses its value.

    I think it's great that 3vil took the time, automated or manually, to thank everyone and get the all-time thanks record. This thread is by far the most epic thread in the history of epic threads anywhere (IMHO). 3vil: you have my support.

    OT

    Anyone know how to root the Samsung Stratosphere? I have read everything I can and this is the first phone that is actually giving me a headache. Verizon put so much bloat on this phone that my wife actually asked me to root it after first telling me not to touch her new 4G baby.

    This is a good rule.

    (fixed your quote to clarify)

    This may be the exception to the rule - this has been a thread of records.

    This is getting staff attention. That's all I want to say at present.

    How to Root Samsung Stratosphere 4G On Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread - Android Discussion - Pandaapp - Forum | Free Your Mobile Life!

    After looking at those directions, that is more of a reason that I can't wait to get my hands on a nexus. Although, if someone knows what their doing, it shouldn't be difficult. But it's gonna be nice to just type a couple commands and have pure freedom.

    They already have skins on them, are only running one core, and still aren't far behind. I would think have both cores in use would at least pull them even with the nexus. Im not impressed by all of these speed tests, do they even take single vs dual core into consideration?

    While most of us have fully transitioned to typing on glass, not everyone has. My wife has a slider (Evo Shift) and uses hers about 50/50 glass/keyboard.

    Can't say I blame her - in landscape mode, a slider gives more real estate overall compared to a glass-only device.

    I think it's great that Android makers don't force just one way of doing things on people - choice is what it's all about.

    Gingerbread supports multi-core already though not as complete as ICS.
    Some old benchmarks like quadrant, linpack don't support multi-core well and also not optimized for ICS. That's why Gnex doesn't get good scores on those. But Gnex does well on Antutu, Browsermarks. Once razr, rezound get updated to ICS, we can do more meaningful benchmarks, taking OS difference out of equation.

    Hi all,

    3UK had it on their site originally down as being released 25th but now it says 29th. I was in there today and they had a dummy so maybe they had stock but it was rammed in there so I didn't check.

    Anyone know if it's out yet on 3UK?

    Thanks

    Some fail miserably - Quadrant completely misbehaves on dual cores and no attention should be given to any Quadrant results at this point for this class of phones.

    Some recognize that perhaps their previous benchmarks weren't adequate - Nenamark came up with Nenamark2 to not give a false indication of 3D fps for dual cores.

    Others seem to give some fair representation of what seems to be going on with capability increases.

    But all of them are being abused by giving the impression that processors are in a horse race and somehow you can declare a winner.

    Despite folklore to the contrary, depending upon your use case, the A9 Cortex processors at 1.2 GHz and S3 at 1.5 GHz add up as either equivalent or beating each other.

    Coming from the direction of total phones and their UIs - now you've got it. :)

    Good benchmarks ought to relate to something, and with our various uses, differences in system software stacks and the new dual core phones having so much horsepower, if you're looking at it from the perspective of the user experience, things tend to operate so smoothly and run so fast and so well that the better synthetic benchmarks do show some things but probably don't show as much as we might hope.

    Like everything else, benchmarks continue to improve and refine, so perhaps one day that will change.
