Name Your Smart Phone

I recently got a droid 2 incredible and fell in love instantly. It's my first touchscreen or smart phone. My main complaint is that sometimes it freezes up.

Re: Name Your Smart Phone

Mmm Droid 2 Incredible! I'm jealous! I have a first gen Motorola Droid. It has served me well, but I've had it since October 2009 and it's starting to fall apart. As soon as I have the money, I'm buying a new Android phone.

Also, soon you'll learn the threshold of use your phone can withstand before it freezes. If it's freezing, it's probably because you're trying to do to many things too quickly, kind of like an old computer.

When i first heard about Droid 2 Incredible I thought that 2 Droid Incredible would make a good name for a rap group.

So I'm looking for R2DJ.

And me? Well, I am MC Threepio.

It's not really a lame joke. I was kinda serious. Nerdcore rap is hot.

Does it count if I have Droid and iPhone emulators on my computer?

RJD2 is god.

Also, you bought a smartphone yet? I'll help you with your search. You were talking about it on IRC the other day but I forgot.

It's the way of the future, man. You can either be dragged along kicking and screaming, or you can adapt. Either way, it's coming.

Re: Name Your Smart Phone

I can connects w/ family on fb, use instant messenger, text, browse, finally use a speedometer since mine in my car doesn't work, get nearly any song I want free downloaded, manage all my school shit, check multiple emails at once all my social networks at once and there's tons more useful apps. I love my phone. Quit hating.

While we're looking dumb on our phones we might be handling all kinds of important shit simultaneously.

The fastest your phone will get it when it's connected to wifi and on AC power. This is true for many smartphones and may be true for yours - when it's on battery power, it will underclock its processor (run slower on purpose) to save battery. When it's on AC, it'll go back to full processing power. Wifi makes everything faster too, since lots of services require connecting to the web and 3G is generally pretty slow.

Re: Name Your Smart Phone

I have an Optimus V. It's a pretty sweet little droid phone. I do miss having a keyboard over the touchscreen, but i definitely got used to it in very little time.

But as for smartphones go... i think its 1 out of 10 people who don't own one yet, they are just so popular now. Let alone the fact cell phone companies give the stuff away for free with contracts and whatnot. I mean, the basic Droid goes for $49 now with a contract, that's insane.

My 3g isn't too bad downloading mp3s, maybe 3 minutes or so per song. Around 20 seconds on wifi. Have you guys noticed all the mp3 download apps are disappearing though? Guessing the droid market is getting in trouble for supplying such applications. Anywho, I am just happy i found one that works, god knows they will ban it, and stop updating it -_-

On a last note, does anyone have the tikl app? I got it a few months back, but have no contacts who use it. It seems just like using the nextels chirp/walkie talkie, which i somewhat miss about having boost mobile, other than their shitty service.

I got an HTC Desire S. Waiting on them to unlock the boot loader so I can mess around with it. I love to phone but I'm not liking HTC Sense.
