    Bama's looking good so far in the Iron Bowl. Honestly I'm not too excited about a rematch. LSU didn't beat Bama so much as Bama's kicker gave the win to LSU. Bama is extremely strong this year.

    You know, we had this same all-over-the-place performance with the camera when the Evo 3D first came out.

    I found out that for whatever the real cause was, just resetting the phone made the bad pictures go away and the good ones come back.

    That suggested to me that there was some sort of interaction with other stuff running (and with all of the image-related stuff I'm constantly running, no telling what it was).

    So, that's a back-pocket tip - something to keep in your back pocket until needed - for when the Nexasaurus comes out and any bad photos happen.

    Hope this will help.

    BTW - it's also the reason I am constantly defending phones against bad reviews. Their goal is to meet a deadline and just push buttons. Ours is users helping users overcome or work around issues like this - and many of the negatives I've seen on reviews are just not real. IOW - we want to take good pictures and will work with new kit to see what's what. They just want to do A/B comparisons and declare race-horse winners.

    LSU should get at least a share of the National Championship even if they lose that rematch in my opinion. What a season they have had.

    Well, most car docks are on a type of ball joint, so I do not see why you cannot have the phone in portrait mode.

    Edit: and this car dock doesn't say but it does say "Fully Adjustable, Multi-Angle Neck".

    They're one of our nice vendor-members (because they're helpful and don't spam people).

    How about somebuddy drops them a PM, here's their page - Android Forums - View Profile: seidioseidio

    And ask them to chime in here? :)

    I'd do it, but I'm busy doing mod PMs, so go for it, imo.

    As far as the camera situation goes, I know all of this stuff can be relative, so I'm wondering if we are splitting hairs or do we think it is a legitimate problem? Like, is it going to be on par with my TB camera, which I'm really pleased with or are we concerned that it will be a step in the wrong direction? Thanks.

    I had a convoy with them not too long ago about Nexus cases. A few weeks ago... Maybe 2, they didn't know which ones or when even the Cases would be out, and not sure if thy have a game plan for other accessories yet. But please let us know what you hear!

    Incorrect. Either that, or someone forget to tell my own GS2 as it happily runs both cores when required. I believe Android 4.0 is the first version to properly utilise the full capabilities of multi-core processors, however.

    I think what is going on is that people are taking the "zero-lag shutter" thing a bit too far in thinking that you can shoot well-focused pictures with zero lag.

    Personally, I think it is an option to get in quick shots when you need to, but that doesn't provide for the best picture quality. So what we don't know in these tests is whether or not the shooter is focusing the camera, or just pressing the button and taking advantage of the zero lag shutter.

    The iphone on the other hand will always do a little focus before the shot.

    To be consistent, the Nexus should always be focused as well before shooting.

    That being said, I am guessing that the iphone has a better camera, but I think that the Nexus will still be pretty good. The first leaked pics and video I saw were fantastic on the Nexus. But the most recent reviews show really disappointing photos.

    Off topic:

    My take is this: I don't know when I'm actually flirting. I joke around a TON, as you guys can tell, and sometimes girls will laugh a little bit "excessively", and I milk it. Is it flirting? Probably. I don't know. But after too much of that, she'll start getting irritated.

    I made her stay on the bus. I wasn't going to have her walk 2 miles in heels. Although I only ended up walking like a quarter mile before I hitchhiked the rest of the way. (Yeah, they still do that down there, and it's still safe enough.)

    As far as my wife goes, I don't mind her being all giggly with my friends. But I think I know where I am on the attractiveness scale. If she gets a little too chatty or giggly with someone at least 2 points higher than me, I give her the stink eye or butt in on the conversation and gradually nudge her away. :p

    On topic:

    How bout that Nexus, eh?

    Splitting hairs on still images. Not so sure about the 1080P video recording though. If we all had the phone we could be working this out right now

    *sigh*

    You do know that's how every Lifetime movie starts, right?

    It ends with you in a puddle of tears burning pictures. :p
