Re: Android Terms,Slang & Definitions

I've got a couple...

Battery Hog - That's when you only get a couple of hours of use regardless of what the manufacturer states the battery stats are.

Eternal wait - That's when you are waiting to upgrade form one version of Android to the next.

Lack of handoff - That's when you come into your house from being on the road and the phone gets too confused to successfully hand off the signal from 3G to wifi.

Battery removal - That's what you do when you have a lack of handoff situation.

Twice a day - That's at least how often you can expect to preform the battery removal technique on any given day.

Android fatigue - What I am currently experiencing.

Re: Android Terms,Slang & Definitions

Refurb Nexus S 4G in the mail. I'll get it Wednesday cuz I have school tomorrow. I'm hoping that fixes matters. New battery also promised to me by my local Sprint store.
I'm still getting quite tired of the whole Android experience (Android Fatigue)... Maybe ICS will help with that. But we are back to Eternal Wait. Jelly Bean already announced. +90% of Android devices still don't have ICS.

What device did you have prior?

Android works a little different then other OS you are used to because its open source. When the Nexus Prime came out the Os on their is a beta release. This is so developers can make their apps work properly and test it before the public release.

It takes a few months for the OS to reach GA. Usually 4-5 months, that is when manufacturers start loading their devices with it. The first being the one who developed the Nexus device since they have a head start.

So its 100% normal for devices not to have ICS yet. You will see early devices upgrade in the end of march and though out until May. All those that upgrade past May are the ones that are "late".

Re: Android Terms,Slang & Definitions

EVO x 3. I'm surprised you've forgotten our conversations. LOL.


My beef with this device not being updated to ICS is the fact that this is a NEXUS device. A true Google phone.

Hell... My friend works for Huawei and THEY have an ICS device already.

The Nexus devices should receive the update first. That's why people buy nexus devices.
But anyway, thanks for the intro to android bro.

idk whats with the Nexus s 4g in particular. From what I have been hearing it has always had issues none stop. So my guess that is why there is so much delay.

And yes, 4.0.3 was the first RC and 4.0.5 is GA. Samsung plans to upgrade GS2 in march 15th to ICS in some countries.

Question is, is your friend at Huawei using a final complete product or a prototype/beta?

Re: Android Terms,Slang & Definitions

EVO was end of lifed... They offered me the Epic 4G but I didn't want to feel like I just time traveled from the past holding that brick in my hand. LOL.

I went with the Nexus because it was a NEXUS. But I guess that's not going to change when I get ICS.

I really am getting Android Fatigue big time though. Not sure what my options truly are... But I am going to be looking closely at the other two OSs come September when my upgrade is due.

By then I hope to have a better feel for what is coming down the line.

My friend is an Director for Technical acceptance for Huawei which basically oversees the sales reps and Cricket is one of the accounts he looks over. He's played with the Ascend and the Honor both running ICS... But I am sure it's not fully baked.

But neither device is a NEXUS.

As I said..don't put too much faith in CDMA...because there will always be roadblocks just by being CDMA. Can't you just load up a custom ICS or CM9?

Your going to venture the road of iOS? O.o...is it that bad? lol..what exactly are you expecting out of ICS anyways?

Nothing is preventing them from starting the ground work on ICS early on..its just a matter of releasing it only after its GA'd.

Re: Android Terms,Slang & Definitions

What a great intro for Android newbies. "Dual core" entry is spelled "duel core" though. Thanks for this awesome resource.

"Dual Core"is the correct spelling "Duel Core" is a joke way of saying "Dual Core"..because "Duel Core" would mean the core is fighting something.
