    See.. I'm torn. For years all I did was root my phones/rom them..

    ...but for some reason, with my SG3 and 1X, I get this comfort feeling now with a stock phone, like I know and trust the manufacturers to send out an update that wont bork my device up.

    Besides, it seems ROM's for devices like the DroidX or Atrix, etc seem more fleshed out than a CM10 rom for the SG3/1X.

    Am I nuts?

    Years ago, the skins manufacturers used were pretty ugly compared to stock Android, so the moment you get these devices, you root/rom/theme to make them less ugly.

    Now it seems the UI's are onpar or superior to stock Android and in some cases offer more features.

    It's a trade off, but we're now waay off topic. lol

    Thanks to everyone in this thread for assisting me in surviving another friday at work. As a Maxx owner, and a completely unbiased reader, Tohio (I think that was his name) got straight up fleeced by the mods. But he did put forth a very valiant effort that I applaud. Although your arguments were super weak, it entertained me and there's something to be said for not bowing out without a fight.

    +1 for Android Central Forums!

    Shouldn't anyone considering buying anything read the forums on it? You did say that you base you buying decision on what is said on the forums, and definitely implied that you didn't get the One X because of the problems people were reporting in the forums.

    Furthermore, my first two replies were just illustrating the point that all phones have bugs. And you never answered my questions, which bugs in particular made you definitely not want a One X before even seeing one in person?



    A quote from you below should help make this post irrelevant.



    Wait for it....



    Wait for it.... this is where your "facts" start to fall apart.



    BOOM!!! I didn't even need to say it. Other members ARE paying attention.



    Don't think you ever did this.



    Lulz at you wanting people to believe that a site posted an article with the wrong year. You want us to believe that instead of just thinking you're wrong.

    People believe "third party" sources all the time. You do read Android Central right? Third party source.



    Thank you.



    THIS.



    Isn't a black screen on AMOLED the same as being off?


    I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm really enjoying this thread. Having a great discussion with (some) people that want to learn. This is what I love about our forums.
    Yada yada yada. Still riding that date train huh? What a croc.

    Where is the Samsung cite that says they are responsible for burn in.

    Where is the cite that I said the S III has no bugs?

    You are the fail master. When you can stop dissembling and answer these questions then you can play with the big boys.

    I don't want to be insulting, but anyone talking about screen burn in on a phone is just plain bs'ing. The phone screen doesn't stay on for hours at a time on one screen like a PC that is sitting at a log on screen with the screen saver turned off. Plus we rotate our screens between portrait and landscape, I know I do. This burn in thing is the stupidest argument defense I've ever seen for a phone.


    Rev.
    While I don't think it's a big enough issue to worry about, it does happen, my SGS i9000M had burn in on the notifications area only. Annoyed me once I saw it.

    Oh my god, dude, give it up. It was mildly entertaining the first few pages but at this point I think you are just doing some obtuse internet performance art. Enough.

    Now, I think I need to find the chicks with Android phones thread, to see what people think of me lol. Is it so odd that chicks can dig tech?
