    It does seem to be quite inconvenient, but I'm not an Apple or iPhone fan. iPhone seems to be really limited in freedom and being able to customize, so I'm sticking with Android if possible.

    I dunno, might have to ask them in an email if they don't mind, I guess.

    I am currently stuck with a local brand phone which runs Android ICS.

    Re: General Mobile Phone Thread

    Some newb questions I have is: What exactly is a data plan? Do you think I can opt out if I will mostly be in a place where there's wi-fi (i.e. home and campus) in September?

    I have a basic inkling of what a data plan is, but I don't want to ask the guy at the phone booth for more details because I know he'll try to pressure me to get it.

    Data plan is a plan where you're allowed to use a certain amount of data, like 3MB or 5 GB, each at different price. I don't think you can opt out if you use smartphones as they require internet connection. You can choose the cheapest though. You're better off choosing the cheapest even if they offered a choice of no data plan, just in case.

    Like, if you're outside and need to find a place, you can open up Maps and google the directions, which would not be possible if you were not allowed to use data outside.

    Since Im part of that amazon reviewer program I seem to finally get a mobile phone to review (BLU Studio 5.0 C HD Quad Core, Android 4.4 KK, 4G HSPA+, 8MP Camera - Unlocked Cell Phones - Blue) Will be curious to see how it compares to my current phone.

    Is cloud photo backup still an option for iPhone users after the recent celebrity pictures scandal?

    Well, the iphone 6 is by no means innovative but it does seem to have impressive hardware. I wonder how battery life compares to other phones, if the stuff they said is true then it should be better than current phones.

    I just find it annoying how they hype things like they invented it. Phones have had NFC for years, Apple is just adding it to their phones now.

    I think they claim shit like that for the Apple fanboys. They'll eat anything up because it's Apple. I miss Steve Jobs.

    It's not for fanboys. It's banking on people being ignorant and not knowing any better.

    Note 4 and some other handsets available and soon to released are far better than iPhone 6 / 6 Plus. Its true they hype it up.

    Re: General Mobile Phone Thread

    I am somewhat disappointed in that it does not seem like there is any real innovation going on in phones and whatnots... Phones have been largely the same for 3 years at least. They get new features and whatnot but none of them seem particularly relevant, they are more like gimmicks. I guess we got to the limit of the technology? No one seems to be able to think of a way to actually improve smartphones other than putting more power into them.

    I think the biggest thing hampering the innovation is the battery technology. It's getting better, but in order for tech to take the next big leap, the cutting edge battery technology needs to become cheaper.
