  1. Past hour
  2. Here, let me fix this for you LOL. Samsung will sell the Galaxy Z Flip's Ultra Thin Plastic to other companies
  3. Google probably knows how many original pixels are still being used regularly and it's not worth the effort to build an OS for such a few devices still in use. But, you can probably guess the "xda" types will make one that works.
  4. People don't need skepticism and negativity either! Relax, everything will be fine! lol
  5. "For some reason" Yes, that reason is nostalgia.
  6. I do know that it re-generates every 3 months. What I don't know is when that happens because it's automated and I never need to think about it. What's the problem? When people complain about a free product, more over when the complaint is unwarranted, I just want to strap them to a chair and show them real problems. Like has been mentioned, go pay for one.
  7. I was really hoping that by android 11 they will replace android with what they were building in the background (fuchsia os), but what do you know they are busy trying to pause notification while playing videos
  8. Other than dark-mode, what is in this new version of Android? Other than sheer boredom, it might not be worth it to flash this rom. It is Very Early Days - which is why even Google is only recommending this be installed by developers - and even then, it is pushing installing in Android Studio - not a hardware device - at this point.
  9. Sadly I think only techies give a crap about OS and security update support. The average person couldn't tell you which version of iOS they running Or of Android, for that matter. As much as Google gets whacked, how many Android ODMs match Google in the length-of-support department? (After all, I recommend Google (among Android ODMs for a reason.)
  10. Yeah, I think of it more as an exclusive launch those hardware than it is a technical requirement. At least that was the Pixel for sure, not sure why it is still a somewhat short list. It doesn't seem like a good strategy to limit the amount of people who can access the platform. A lot of companies do staggered releases so their infrastructure doesn't meltdown. Take a look a "midnight" releases for video games or Windows updates.
  11. As a Transformers fan, I'll eventually buy it but not at $14.99
  12. if people buy it, it is more money in their pockets. We have more advanced video game consoles in todays tablets and phones. I don't see this being a hit any more than the waterjet ring toss is a current hit. https://www.amazon.com/Handhel...-Rings-Colors/dp/B00BQJUDL0
  13. Android 11 will let you shut off notifications while recording video by Rich Woods It's about a month earlier than anyone expected, but Google released the first developer preview for Android 11 today. If you want it, you'll have to flash it to a supported Pixel device, and people are already digging into it to find new features. One of those new features is an API called setCameraAudioRestriction (via Android Authority), where you'll finally be able to shut off notifications while using the camera, or at least they won't be able to make your phone vibrate. Indeed, this can be a common issue when recording video, as the vibration could mess up your stabilization. And let's face it: there are times when notifications are just annoying. It can be while you're using a camera, while you're watching a video, or while playing a game. Some companies have worked on do not disturb mode for playing games, but it seems like the camera often gets overlooked. This is likely to be a welcome feature from Google. Of course, Android 11 won't ship until Q3 of this year, and that's if you've got a Pixel phone. For third-party devices, it's obviously going to take a while longer, as it always does.
  14. Nobody wanted them back then, no one wants them now.
  15. More plastic and electronic waste. Just what the world needs.
  16. "Void Egg" huh? Do they turn into Voidhawks? This is right out of Peter F Hamilton's Nights Dawn Trilogy
  17. Today
  18. Bummer, Korn's Twist doesn't work yet.
  19. Finally, I can get the words to You Should Be Dancing right. lol.
  20. yeah they probably started improving again since then. It's past the point for me personally to care though. Their phones are priced to high for me anyway in my general budget. I'm on a no contract carrier so I buy phones outright when I get new usually. I tend to stay in the $350 or less range.
  21. Other than dark-mode, what is in this new version of Android? Other than sheer boredom, it might not be worth it to flash this rom.
  22. Dont know, my XZ Premium got android 8 then 9 from 7. Xperia 1 got Android 10 so far, it doesnt look like there is an update issue from Sony.
  23. My first gen SB is still working just fine. Dont see a reason to upgrade, not to mention the product is overpriced.
  24. Sadly I think only techies give a crap about OS and security update support. The average person couldn't tell you which version of iOS they running
