    Yeah do that - although I put my 32gb card in the tablet and now use a 16gb one on the cell.
    If you need some more insight on the phones capabilities / specs or wtv, checkout some you tube reviews.

    Well, from what I can tell they simply make bigger batteries which is not quite a solution to the thing I mention but rather a consequence. If the amount of energy a given amount of material can hold is basically fixed then the solution would be to simply have a bigger battery. If batteries improved at the same rate as cell phones we should have by now toe sized batteries which can last for a week (ok, those numbers I made up but I think the point I am making is clear). Given how large cell phone companies move so far I would think is an indication that most people do not want larger and heavier batteries. At least they do not want it enough for them to tolerate a larger heavier phone. And it makes sense, companies nowadays aim to make phones as thin and light as possible and a larger battery is a big no no if those are the goals. So basically the large heavy thick battery market is more of a niche than anything.

    I would also love a smaller and lighter battery, but I, like many others based on reviews for Zero Lemon, would prefer better battery life. It's much easier to carry bulk than a cord and/or plug, extra battery, or hope that the battery will last long enough.

    Plus side, hand/s get used to the bulk and are more easily able to handle future bigger phones.

    Insert battery, connect to AC, and hope that works even if the battery doesn't?

    How the fuck did you know/remember my phone number anyway?

    I already tried it plugged in, no shit... The SIM card reader I used didn't work at all and is generally very ill-received online. Might try another one I can find online.

    I don't know, I think it was in my Google contacts. Same with Tiff's and a few others. You two are the only people that are on my Whatsapp, so you two must be the only ones who use it among the numbers I had? Not sure how it works.

    The S4 is pretty damn slim. I was worried about the formfactor being negated since I bought an Otterbox Defender case, but it isn't that bad at all. The phone is still pretty big, but it isn't unmanageable.

    Re: General Mobile Phone Thread

    It doesn't turn on at all?

    Google contacts, huh. Interesting. But sugoi.

    S3 and S4 are big as hell, but they're pretty slim and light. Not sure if it's a good tradeoff, but at least it's easy to hold it.

    Nope...returned the piece of crap SIM reader. Might try to find a decent one online. I thought maybe thorn would have a suggestion since he has a phone with like six SIM cards

    They're wide, but they aren't big. Do you know Otterbox? There cases are so good, really durable. I was worried it would make it too bulky, but it didn't.

    Why do I need to STFU?!

    I need to get stuff off of my old phone's SIM, but the reader I bought doesn't work for shit.

    Personally, I think you should just give up and sob and wallow in your failure to retrieve all those lost contacts, but hey, what do I know? I never had that problem. have you talked to the phone service provider or phone manufacturer?

    Haven't used Otterbox, but I've heard of 'em. They're said to be tougher than your little bearcold heart.

    No, it's not expensive to try.

    Okay...

    It can be time extensive though, and you don't know if it will even work. But at least I know why you needed contact info again. v.v

    Huh? Yeah, because, like I said, my phone is dead. The card could be corrupted, I don't even know.

    What other handset you were using before S IV? Your major concern is contacts and texts, correct?

    Sophisticated as an S4? I mean, it's great and all, but it isn't an antique chair

    Hard and tough? That's what the Otterbox is for then, I guess

    An old Nokia 2600. So old, at least 10 years old. But it did everything I really needed, so I never cared about having a smartphone. No point in upgrading to a newer version of the same rudimentary thing.

    Yes, numbers mostly. It had onboard memory, surprisingly, so I'm not sure if texts were kept there or on the SIM. Basically anything I could retrieve from it would be nice.
