I had a serious geekcrush on litening ROM, but looks like the dev has disappeared for the time being so I've jumped ship to checkROM revolution till he returns.
Seems fairly decent so far, and seriously shifts with the ninphetamine kernel. nice selections of themes/add-ons too

Weird, just put my SG2 on full volume and compared it to my Sansa clip mp3 at full whack, no difference.

Bit worrying then - which is a good android handset to get for GPS then as I was looking at the galaxy S 2 / HTC Sensation with beats, are there any other handsets android based or similar. My iphone 4 contract ends soon and was hoping to be able to use a micro sim card so I could swap the sim card between the iphone 4 and an android phone so I could use GPS on android and the iphone 4 as an ipod for in car music as got stuff purchased from the iTunes store which no doubt is encrypted and easier to get onto my iphone then it will be onto an android type phone.

Maybe its HTCs that are too loud then (I recorded them both into Audacity and there was a 10db diff)
And like I say, the GPS long time to lock is flaky - I'll time how long it takes each time in the car today and post later.
What does *#1234# give you back please?
I get XWKF3
Build date Jun 9
The 7 day return only ran out yesterday so give me a chance
Stop being a pansy then and put a custom ROM on it
Put my phone into download mode and tried using Odin last night but it didn't seem to recognise my phone existed
(Then had to pull the battery as there didn't seem to be a method to get out of download mode once your in it!)

i just wish cyanogen would be stable soon i dont like touchwiz at all and freeze it and install adw launcher on any rom, so if it didnt have it installed in the first place i'd be saving a bit of space. i'm using cognition at the moment, really do like it, especially when you add jkays themes to it!

I use a sat nav app on the S2 called Sygic and it never drops out of range and I find it as good as a tom tom. Headphone volume isn't as loud as other phones - I agree. I have had bad experiences with HTC but with Windows installed on the phone so that is probably why - I used to have a HTC Touch HD running Windows (Horrible memories).

Samsung Galaxy S2 for the win over the iphone.

Can somebody answer this for me (hopefully an iPhone lover can answer it), why do people protect the feelings of their iphone like its a living baby! They wont let any body share their negative opinion on them without being argumentative, they wont ever change from the iphone, and they just seem to think it's the best hence they have one because of this but this isn't the case. OK they are brilliant phones, but the new iPhone 4S is selling on ebay at the moment for in the region of £700-£800, why is the iPhone 4S worth this when the Samsung S2 you can pick up on ebay for £300. Can anybody tell me what a 4S can do that the S2 can't?

This is an extremely good question!

iPhone owners, however, can't seem to let it lie, if you point out anything about the phone. As explained on other threads, my brother was exactly the same, and I used to rib him mercilessly! (Just for the sport!!) Since getting fed up with iPhone, and moving to HTC Sensation, he is a changed man!

I was at a party the other week, and started to tell one person what I thought of iPhones, then a load of others joined in and all felt crushed when I told them that I don't like iPhones because of how restricted they are - they all weren't happy and I feel they may not like me as much as a person anymore.

- Rep Power
I've got the 4s having had a 3g before, what swung it for me is the quality & amount of apps and the fact that I want something that I don't have to / won't have the temptation to mess around with to get stuff to work.

Was going to add "or is that what you mean"...
