- Well most of the issues you pointed out are more Samsung related than android related. 4.2 won't bring anything to an OEM device so I wouldn't worry about that too much.
The 5gb memory loss will be down to the size of Samsung's touchwiz/android and the bundled in apps.
You would be best getting a nexus before making a comparison as the nexus is the iPhone equivalent.. Very easy to make a stable system when you only make one phone a year..
With regards to the market place.. You cant change you locale because its based on ip address.. Try a VPN.
Also find all the lovely apps that you have to pay for on iPhone yet are free on android.Dec 6, 2012
- Oh and you complain about 1.7gb ram.. How much does the iPhone have btw?
It will have 2gb in it I assure you, 300+mb will be cached data and not display in SYS info.Dec 6, 2012
- Paul is right... Android hater or not, you can't make a fair comparison with a non stock Android phone.Dec 6, 2012
- Sure 300mb won't be missed just seemed a little odd. I have a vpn (again couldn't install via play store) I will try out the play store whilst it's active. I phone has 1gb ram if am not mistaken-- yet I don't see any benefit in this device for having double the ram.
As for the free apps that other wise I'd pay for on ios, well if I could at least download them to begin with I might agree with you. However the same app I downloaded on ios I simply can't get or download in the play store.
And drew I believe it's a fair comparison seeming Samsung are market leaders and the poster boy for Android. As for the nexus my friend has one and I'll check it out.Dec 6, 2012
- Personally I see market leaders to mean best marketing strategy, I don't personally believe the mass consumer market is interested in snap-this or exynos-that.. Or care about quad vs dual any more than as a bragging right.
Android is designed for the nexus and essentially ported to other devices.
I am sorry you're in an excluded region of the world with regards to the play store.
With that in mind... you should have got an iPhone :PDec 6, 2012
