    i haven't payed much attention to this section so i wouldn't know how regularly it's normally updated, but seeing as the galaxy lite (now known as spica) is in rumored, i get the feeling that the section is completely useless

    That section was a huge project to put together and most certainly is not meant to be useless, by any means.

    However most this site (the phandroid side) is a two man show and we're having a hard time keeping it all maintained.

    Yes, we are looking for someone to take on the phone guide. Someone dedicated and willing - it is a large amount of work.

    It also needs to be someone we know and trust so... yeah we're working on getting that sorted.

    Thanks for the feedback. Sometimes we need a kick in the butt.

    idk, all android phones would be lots of info, and i perused the phone section today and thought it was really well done. as far as layout and ease of use it gets a A+ from me.

    the info will come, things change, get updated, whatever, im sure it is time consuming but nevertheless a nice feature.

    might be able to expand on that in the future and add a phone matrix of sorts that would allow an end user to compare all the features, carriers, etc....could be a big draw for phandroid.

    oh i agree, the design of the phones section is brilliant and the concept is very useful
    what i meant was that the section is rendered useless in practice by inaccurate/out of date info

    Have you considered making it wiki-style?
    Or limited wiki, selected users, premium users...
    Or approve submitted changes.
    Anything like that to make it easier for you guys?
