So I’ve spent the day reading the forum, searching the Inet and playing with my new Epic, but I’ve got some questions I haven’t been able to figure out and hopefully you nice people could help me out These questions all pertain to my new Samsung Epic 4G on Sprint network. Apologies if the answer is obvious and I’m a moron. 1. I hear different things from different people on battery life and charging. Is it better to keep it charging and plugged in often, or to have the battery run all the way out, then recharge all the way back. Main reason is I plan on using my Epic during the day at my desk at work to play music or videos…am I better served draining the battery or keeping it plugged in at my desk while I listen to music and watch videos? 2. Is there an easy way to uninstall an app other than going into the app market, finding the app, and then uninstalling? I use to have the Pre, and you’d just need to Fn-click the ap and it would bring up a menu to uninstall it… 3. In my SMS chatting and such, I don’t see emoticons…just the colon end-parenthesis etc…is there an app to change that? Also, no offense to droid, but I’m not a fan of the green droid default emoticons when I click the smiley…is there a way to change those? 4. The Samsung Buddies Now widget…I don’t know why, but the facebook-linked pictures for my contacts look HORRIBLE! It looks like they took the shrunk picture that’s in my contacts’ pictures and just stretched it out to be a larger icon…its blurry…is there a better widget out there? I like being able to see just a few of my closest friend’s facebook status quickly and have easy access to call or message them, but the pictures are just ugly. 5. How do you chose a default picture for a contact? It looks like for some of my contacts its using the google profile pic, and others using the facebook pic…I’m trying to get them all to use the facebook current profile pic. [I saw a question for this out there already, but it looked like just waiting for 2.2 was the answer…and it didn’t mention a different pic overriding the facebook pic…] 6. Anyone suggest a good place to see a list of apps, widgets, games, etc (and preferably separated out by type…widget, type of app, game, etc..)? Being new to Android I don’t even know what’s out there to be good and actually search for it, but browsing through the however number of items that are out there seems daunting on my phone, and would be less so on a computer.
