    Know whats interesting about your list?

    You don't even have anything on your list about call quality and actually using the device as a phone???
    His list fits in pretty close to mine and for me radios and call quality is the bottom. I use less than 200 min a month. A smartphone is a phone that is least used as a phone for me lol.

    I agree that the Retina display is by far the best mobile screen I have seen as well. Haven't seen a Super Amoled Plus screen yet but I am assuming while it will look great it still won't be as good as the Retina display.........

    So here is a Random question......If their was an Android phone that was released with a retina display like the iPhone 5 but the screen was only 4", would you buy that or still go with the larger, 4.5" Super Amoled Plus screen on the galaxy.

    Just curious if people would prefer the larger screen over the better screen. I myself don't think I can go back to a 4" screen.....
    I agree about the iPhone's retina display. However, to answer your question, once Samsung has the manufacturing process in place, I would probably prefer a SAMOLED Plus 4 to 4.3 inch display that is around qHD resolution and 300+ ppi. That to me would be the perfect screen.

    What the hell is a phone??? (sarcastic) lol
    But I never really call anyone so it's sort of redundant for me and if I do, it's only for like a 10-15 second call.

    Some of actually use phones as phones for work, family communications, etc. I do a ton of work on the web on it as well but for those of us who rely on them as tools and not just playthings, I'd put phone first (along with all communication types), web2nd and camera third.

    Pretty scary that a generation is loosing the ability to actually communicate via voice with one another......

    ? How did you get that no1 cares about talking? People talk in many different ways. Texting is a form of communication. Some times its just way easier to send a text then to dial then wait to connect then it rings like 5 times eventhough they just herd it once to then ask your question get you answer and hang up...there are certain people you text and those that are really close or old you call :O). in your case then you would completely happy with the D Bionic or Photon , they have great radios for calling...

    I communicate via voice just fine. I'm 41, not one of the younger generation. I choose not to talk on the phone if I don't have to. There's not a thing wrong with that and I think you'll find the younger generation can communicate via voice just fine when they have to as well. I'd bet they communicate more than most adults.

    My job requires me to communicate, by voice, IN PERSON, for 8+ hours a day. The last thing I want to do is talk to other people when texting them is 1)faster 2)easier to ignore if I am done with a conversation 3)quieter!

    It has been proven that because the younger generation is typing more they are actually building a bigger vocabulary, spelling more precisely, and better at using grammar than their fathers and mothers. Happy now?!?!

    Yeah and when they have to interact with another person face to face, they blubber all over themselves, never make eye contact and can't wait to get the hell out of there.

    lol Interacting with people face to face has always been a problem for the younger people . Even when we were kids , that situation never changes for kids. But let them download tango or skype and video chat this way they can work on that problem. But if they are face to face they still wouldn't need a good radio on there phone to talk so were are back to square 1 I think we need to add more numbers to this to 5 list and make them all equal in value to each other so that they are all important to have on a phone..

    I have grown up in what I guess I would call the affordability of the desktop to the mobilization of computing. I remember when there were beepers. I had an x86 from IBM when I was 4ish maybe 5 and I can honestly say that without an electronic dictionary at my fingertips I would probably have an 1/8 of my vocabulary and an understanding of it taken away. I am living in a world where I don't have time to stop and look in a dictionary to learn a word that will have no relevance to me if I take the time to do so. In other words I don't have time to stop and flip the pages casually as my ancestors did before me. I, you, we, live in to fast a paced world to do that and keep up at work, home, or life in general. I am not sure what "kids" you are referring to that stumble and trip over words but maybe they are hurried by the world in general not the lack of speech that they use in a given day.

    Um, you sure about that? About half of my friends type like they are illiterate!

    How I type: Hey, what's up?

    How they type: hay wats zup

    Honestly, I hate people who spell that way because it doesn't really make you look any cooler when you type like that (to be honest, I do type 'cuz' from time to time) and it makes you look like you're uneducated. I don't think anyone will be accepting them for a job anytime soon!

    You might want to take a closer look at your choice of friends if it concerns you. On the other hand I have close friends that can hardly use proper grammar and I love then dearly. Speech and grammar are not all there is to life. It does drive me crazy and I do try and correct them in the nicest possible way. But it gets old after a while.

    What you don't understand is some people do that because it's acceptable "internet speak." My son does that, but he's also on the honor roll and dean's list at his college. He's perfectly capable of talking and writing correctly when he needs to.

    It's not really that I judge people on it, but it's more of a pet-peeve for me, so to speak.

    GREAT QUESTION!

    That is exactly why I am torn between the S2 and the Proton. I per-ordered the S2 this past week but I like the 'idea' of the better resolution. And I do wear glasses but always liked have it sharper and getting more on the screen.

    I guess when I get it in my hands, I'm going to fall in love with it. I would still have time to bring it to the store and compare it to the Proton.

    And I'm guessing there will be one or two more new phones announced for Sprint in the next few weeks, to choose from!

    I stopped and looked at the Bionic at Verizon today and they had some live fish tank background going and it looked like everything was painted on a canvas.

    People get lazy about talking properly. Too bad. Prior to losing my job I was a manager and interviewing people today was very entertaining. Not only with improper use of grammar but dress code too. And their college education taught them what?
