    I have zero confidence in this getting any type of update, which is very different from the moto g which will see at least one fix and one major OS upgrade.

  2. doncoop added a post in a topic Howto ALCATEL POP S3 rooting (without using exploits) ?   

    Hi, I've picked this up as a backup phone. Have you been able to find a root method?
    There is a lot of apps I wouldnt mind removing.

    Alcatel Idol X+ seems to be getting a bit of attention at £170 and has a decent spec.
    It's great to see these devices coming through. I'm done with locking myself in to long and expensive contracts just to get a decent phone.

  4. doncoop added a post in a topic Updated stock ROM S3 slowed to a crawl - any answers?   

    My brother had this phone up until recently. I would say the likely cause is ram rather than the ROM.
    There is so much useless tat that samsung has in the background when you add swiftkey, then facebook and a few other apps which keep running in the background, it slows to a crawl.
    it helps by going into apps > running and disabling anything you dont use then re-starting.
    but i'd imagine the best thing is to root and uninstall like there is no tomorrow!

  6. doncoop added a post in a topic Motorola announce the LTE enabled G and the Moto E   

    Unless they are pulling the moto g 3g, why would you buy the e instead for £10 less? 
    Emerging markets makes more sense for the e rather than the UK.
    Sure it will sell well though and it really sends a shot to samsung / huawei / sony on how to make a sub £100 phone

    You'd hope with more of their apps and sense being play store driven there is less of a need for a GPe, updates should come much quicker than before.
    However, I also don't understand why GPe's only come out in the US.
    Paul, is this something you can shed your knowledge / reasoning on in the next podcast? Thanks!

  12. doncoop added a post in a topic Has the Moto G made cheap phones cool?   

    I'm thinking this might make a bigger hit in the younger market.
    I reckon kids (up to their teens) want apple products, end of. But.........
    Most of them will only get an ipod touch, as only select parents are willing to buy kids an iphone.
    So could this be the ipod replacement, the one that kids are happy to receive at christmas?
    Could well be.
    Nokia rode on the back of youth sales with the 3310 back in the day (there was no other phone to consider when I was a teen).
    Motorola could potentially use the price to get a new generation with their products.
    Give them something they love and they'll come back for more.
    Just a ramble going round in my head.

  13. doncoop added a post in a topic LG G2 Review   

    All right, I'll be the first one to say it.
    But its LG. 
    I've seen this in the shops and I so want. But at the expense of no future updates (sorry LG, I just cannot trust you to upgrade in a timely fashion).

    I would imagine at the very worst that giffgaff and o2 would work seen as they run off the same network which isn't too bad?

    Yeah I got this 90% of the time but on my old xperia play.
    I did a quick google and it was something around the network didn't register you received the message on the 1st attempt so re-sends it.
    Maybe the firmware causes issue with your carrier?
