    On the website its the plus sign in the post. You click it and then when you're ready you hit quote on the last one you did.
    On the app its a matter of manually quoting and then copying, then backing out and quoting the next one you want and then pasting your previous copy.
    Did that make sense?

    For each post you wish to quote, select the green + button to the right of "Quote". It will turn orange to indicate it's active. Once you've selected all posts, use the "Quote" button and all will appear in your reply.

    If you want them to appear in the order posted, use the "Quote" button on the first in the series - that usually works but occasionally vB goes into a funk and reverses the order anyway. :)

    I just started using it a few days ago. Its definitely better than the built in Sammy keyboard but it's not great for me yet. Maybe I just have unpredictable speech and text patterns. I am too special to be turned into data!

    I'm definitely going to use it on. MY Gnex and my moms Rezound.

    So really, it's just the right to display unregulated chest puffery that has been compromised? This 'ThanksGate 2011-2012' ('cause who knows when VZW will actually release this beast), reminds me a lot of how Minnesota motorcycle forums get testy when the snow flies.
    Please please please don't take away my unwarranted 'thankses'! How would I ever get enough to order the super-secret decoder ring!? lol.

    Exactly.

    Picture evidence here for an HTC running Gingerbread -

    androidforums.com/htc-evo-3d/381826-dual-cores-anyone-taking-advantage-them.html

    There are two basic ways of easily doing general purpose symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP) for a dual core system.

    Gingerbread used the one way, ICS is using the second way and it features improved task management - important on a multitasking OS.

    I've written on both before the dual cores hit, if anyone cares, ping me and I'll look up the old post link(s).

    Android (Linux) is a preemptive multitasking OS and for ICS, Google improved task management at the kernel level and I'm excited about it.

    Google actually fed this change back into the Linux kernel open source project and I may be mistaken, but I was under the impression that this was the first significant feedback/change from Android to the Linux kernel and is being accepted as a welcome path there. (If someone knows better, please correct me, otherwise, I'll go back and check this later if I remember to.)

    I expect the Rezound and GSG2 to improve with the ICS kernel.

    As to whether they'll become faster than the Nexus, we'll see.

    I expect all that will happen is that the playing field will level a bit more, with lovers of each phone citing synthetic benchmarks in various areas or other web sites to declare their favorite "won" the speed test.

    And I predict that I'll continue to claim that the Exynos and OMAP4 at 1.2 GHz are overall equivalent to the S3 at 1.5 GHz for most uses to soothe the waters and because it's true, even though many don't believe this. ;) :)

    Sense, Blur, Wiz and pure ICS will continue to be healthily debated but there comes a point on an ultra-high performance dual core superphone where the perceivable determining speed factor is really the individual user's configuration and mix of apps.

    LOL

    But you sparked an interesting memory. For a number of synthetic benchmarks, my Evo 3D is going to show superior performance to the Rezound.

    Just like the iP3gs outperforming the iP4 - when you have few pixels to move around, you finish the benchmark faster.

    (And no, I don't think the Adreno beats the SGX - srsly, you're crackin' me up.)



    NO! :)

    Seriously - please - no more scripting against the site.

    The entire matter is under review, please give us time - haste makes waste.

    Cheers, thanks!

    1000 pages is 50,000 posts...So heck yeah we will. No doubt in my mind. I bet we reach that before we even get an official announcement. I'm voting about 55K posts before this thread is done...

    Thank you Ringhale, I appreciate that. Best wishes to you also!

    Just don't make the mistake of asking him "Honey, if you were going to date one of my friends, which one would it be?" Trust me, that won't work out well. :eek:

    Does anyone here remember about what post # we were at when that YouTube animation was posted about Verizon not selling Nexus until 5 million RAZRs were sold? For the life of me I can find it anywhere.... TIA

    I'm guessing 63,000+ posts by the time we shutter this thing :)

    NVM, I found it :)

    The traditional unlock for any Nexus has always been the simple command


    • fastboot oem unlock

    Hope that helps! :)

    Ah, thanks. Sucks that there's nothing actually announced about it though... Really would like to grab a desktop dock as well as a car dock that supports the pins rather than micro USB.

    Exactly...It's weird to look back on this thread, and over half of the posts have been within the last 3-4 weeks, and this thread has been up since when...August? It's crazy how much posting goes on in here...When an announcement gets made, there will be thousands of posts shooting off in a short period of time. I can see it going over 70k no problem.

    This is my BIGGEST concern. I do not expect my phone to be my DSLR, however I do appreciate a solid performing point and shoot. The iPhone excels here and with 2 kids under 3, there are tons of photos going back and forth for my wife and other family members. No phone I have used comes close to the image quality produced with the 4s and as much as I try to downplay camera quality for all the other great features of the Nexus, it is truly one of the top deciding factors for me. If the Nexus is not better then the Droid Pro, I will be forced to jump ship.
