    first smart phone, will buy today soon

    was wondering what a decent car charger would be, i saw some 5 dollar ones but i read those can actually hurt ur phone, i want a legitimate but good semi cheap charger since i will not be using it alot

    its only for emergencys like going somewhere all day, than long ride home or something where i know battery will be low

    also any other nice things where i can take advantage of my new smart phone? im not really that into using my phone for every little thing but i wana have fun with my new 200 dollar toy lol

    i dont really care for cases either, dont think ill need one but it does look fragile compared to other smart phones, good company name?


    preferably things i can buy on amazon because i love their service n delivery

    and while im at it, recommend some apps/games that cost money and are worth buying!

    The Amazon Appstore app of course, Netflix if you use it, many more that I can't think of at the moment. Little excited right now. It all depends on your preferences, When I calm down later tonight I'll give more.

    ok so here is what i am thinking about buying
    http://www.amazon.com/TPU-Cases-Flex...cUvbUpU1322213
    case that doesnt add bulk, doesnt seem to add much protection cept scratches? not sure but i dont want the one with the kickstand because of the bulk

    http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Standa...cUvbUpU1322213
    read the reviews and generally good says it outputs 700ma and phones will need 500
    dont know about over heat or over charge prot though

    Amazon.com: Motorola Vehicle Power Adapter micro-USB Rapid Rate Charger: Cell Phones & Accessories

    might get this instead

    will buy before dinner, any help will be nice in finishing my decision

    The TPU case you have listed is a good case, that's what I put on my phone and I know there are several other people on here that have it as well. If you didn't want to wait I think there are some other colors on Amazon that are actually in stock.

    Sorry can't help you much with the car chargers I just bought one from Best Buy when I picked up the phone, spent more but I wasn't too worried about it.

    I recently got the Motorola charger you highlighted and I am VERY happy with it. If I had it to do over I would have gotten two.

    have you had enough testing with it to confirm? like charging at 20% while using gps and pandora?

    i plan on using this when i go on 2-4 hour car drives, if i use a charger it means no mp3 player so i would need pandora, and gps ofc

    Just got the TPU case. Really good, got it off amazon for 9 bucks and came with a screen protector. Cant seem to get air bubbles out from the SP, and some debri got in there, but thats user error.


    Is there a dock for the galaxy? I would love to stream pandora in my room while charging my phone

    Here is one on Amazon...

    Amazon.com: EVOPower Sync Transfer USB Dual Dock Cradle Desktop Charger with Spare Battery Charging Slot for AT& T Samsung Galaxy S2 SII / S 2 i9100 / i777 G4: Cell Phones & Accessories

    and the ridiculously overpriced Samsung official dock is listed as available now on Samsung site...

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/e?l...token=rR8Gasrg

    I've always used docks, back on iphone and BB before that. But it just such a pain with cases... I may forgo a dock unless a good split-able shell case comes out...that's what I used on the 3gs and it worked ok.
