I just got the incredible for verizon. I am a blackberry transfer. I am liking the phone so far, some things i don't just know how to do with hot keys or swipes or whatever. but my biggest concern is the battery life. i have this appkiller installed but it just still drains so fast. i unplug the phone and it goes to 94% accoring to whatever battery app i downloaded.

any ideas or reccomendations?

Hey guys, I have a question and am a little unsure of the answer I have. Since I'm in college, I can't use the university internet connection to use torrents, but I can tether my phone to my computer to use its network. Are companies still able to track the downloading on my computer through my phones internet connection? Sorry if I'm not allowed to ask this here. I'll take it down if asked.

Gravitas, avoid samsung like the plague. They have a long history of producing lemons backed by huge marketing campaigns designed to emphasize hype over substance.

Samsung ... I have a Galaxy S, I've been keeping up with the beta firmwares on XDA-Developers, but goddamn it's like Samsung really don't give a shit about their customers. Touchwiz is worthless, GPS doesn't work (STILL!), no 2.2 like they promised ...

I already ordered my Desire Z. Samsung hardware is pretty ok but the way they half-ass their software makes me want to do terrible things to seals.

Exactly why I didn't get that phone. Samsung has awful software and even worse customer service. Rumors of the new Verizon android phone with the (possible) 1.3 processor are swirling. Looks pretty sweet.

4g HTC/Tmobile G2 comes out in a few days. Was "invited" to go see it on launch. Probably not gonna bother though.

Its actually got a slower processor than your Nexus. Can't quite understand that one myself.

Yeah, I found it (Epic) to be frustratingly bad, though my little brother really likes it. Of course, it is his first smartphone. He doesn't use GPS, so that doesn't bother him. He's also content with waiting for 2.2 as he has little interest in it outside flash (and he isn't interested in flashing roms, though there aren't any 2.2 yet anyway). I've had my newest Evo for over a week now and, so far so good (it is 0003 with an Epson panel). Oh yeah, and Swype is fucking ace! Everyone that sees it is amazed, tries it and loves it. If you don't feel like swyping, you can just use it like a normal keyboard. Highly recommended (not on the market, google it!). Also, picolyl's LED Light widget is my favorite flashlight app by far (and it's free).

Well, to be fair, most phones have a slower processor than the Nexus One.

Study: select Android apps sharing data without user notification By Darren Murph posted Sep 30th 2010 4:06PM Come one, come all -- let's gather and act shocked, shall we? It's no secret that Google's Android Market is far easier to penetrate than Apple's App Store, which is most definitely a double-edged sword. On one hand, you aren't stuck waiting a lifetime for Apple to approve a perfectly sound app; on the other, you may end up accidentally downloading some Nazi themes that scar you for life. A curious team of scientists from Intel Labs, Penn State and Duke University recently utilized a so-called TaintDroid extension in order to log and monitor the actions of 30 Android apps -- 30 that were picked from the 358 most popular. Their findings? That half of their sample (15, if you're rusty in the math department) shared location information and / or other unique identifiers (IMEI numbers, phone numbers, SIM numbers, etc.) with advertisers. Making matters worse, those 15 didn't actually inform end-users that data was being shared, and some of 'em beamed out information while applications were dormant. Unfortunately for us all, the researchers didn't bother to rat out the 15 evil apps mentioned here, so good luck resting easy knowing that your library of popular apps could be spying on you right now.

Who is this a surprise to? App store apps have been caught doing the same thing.

What are you going to get? I'm holding out until Xmas or the new year. Nothing worth jumping in and committing myself to 2 years for.

Going to give the Epic a shot; we'll see how it goes.
