There's nothing I'm particularly excited about, I'd like to look at a 1080p phone, but that's just curiosity, I don't want one. The Note 3 may be interesting, but it's so far away that we've not heard anything that can even nearly be considered concrete about it yet.

Last week I was very busy organising a LOT of things. I ended up using my E75 because it can go for 3 days of heavy use; sticks to signal like glue... And for email etc it uses a tenth of the data that iPhones or Androids use... THAT rediscovery was more exciting and relevant than all phones I tried in 2012

It's pretty freaking ugly though Jan - yet impressive at the same time

That's if the Motorola X Phone even makes it to the UK....

I too am interested in the Note 3. And i want to see what 4G LTE phones will come out this year.

Ive pretty much gone off smartphone features (i.e. bigger screens, thinner etc) since unless some new tech pops up this year (bendable screens perhaps) all of the usual updates are pretty much moot and do nothing except make apps open a little quicker or make the phone that much more difficult to fit into a pocket....

I am VERY interested in new phones that look to improve how I use a smartphone however, by that I mean I agree with Jan that the BB 10 range of phones look interesting as they certainly do have an interesting UI for the OS. Or new apps/features that offer more chance to make a smartphone more useful (i.e. content creation apps, an OS with NFC built in etc)

me im now waiting to hear what the Nokia (EOS) is all about before deciding

The latest gen Androids cover all the hardware bets for me too. More than fast enough, cameras that are more techy than I am and the screens are as big as I'd want. Deliberately got a case to make my HOX a little bit thicker (found it slipped out of my hand too easily otherwise), so definitely don't want anything any thinner.

It's got to be all about software for me now. Won't be looking for a new mobi until someone comes up with a killer app or use that my HOX can't deal with. Might be a while.

Moto X, Jolla phone, Note III(freakshow), 6.44" screen Sony(if the rumours are true, another freakshow) - and a 4000 megapixel Nokia Pureview(not).

lcurdie / MOD  Jan. 25, 2013 at 17:48

I'm with Jan on the BlackBerry Z10 and dual-screen/e-Ink YotaPhone, and - predictably - the iPhone 5S (meh), Samsung Galaxy S IV and Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

JanSt / MOD  Jan. 25, 2013 at 18:36

Ah, thanks - the Yota, yes. Only Android device I'm at all interested in.

Pondlife  Jan. 25, 2013 at 19:20

Think the yota is a flawed idea made by a two bit company with launch timescales straight out of Nokia's book so not interested in that gimmick.
The other mooted dual screen phone at that US show looked more interesting though just as much a gimmick really.
Hoping for a high end reasonable sized phone with as big a screen as can be crammed into it.

I do not actually expect to see that phone ... ever! But the idea is more exciting than some more GHz and MBs and inches square.

Having said that: in 2006 the vast majority of comments re that 'rumoured' Apple phone were: what a joke/no experience with phones/guaranteed flop....

Pondlife  Jan. 26, 2013 at 13:25

Not really, as I said elsewhere you'd spend half your time spinning phone round. You think a glass back is a bad design and yet another screen to scratch instead doesn't sound worse?
Makes more sense in a tablet anyway.
Were already a very big company with a trendy well advertised product range though and the first one was rather poor..

JanSt / MOD  Jan. 26, 2013 at 14:28

You fail to see what the second screen could be uses for :p It'd also be possible to protect the screen - and Gorilla III will be much tougher than current glass.
The fact that the company may be incapable of pulling it off doesn't interest me one bit. Buying it doesn't interest me one bit. But it is more innovative than anything launched these past 18 months. And it might inspire some competent hardware maker to look beyond "more bigger and faster"!
It depends on how people use their phones, also. I do read a lot on my phone. Being able to "export" nicely rendered Reader pages or Pocket etc onto the eInk display would be very welcome. Dito notes, maps snippets etc So many things we do with phones do not really require doubleplusgood super hd retinamoled bravia bullsh*t battery guzzling displays.
This very page (mobot's mobile site) looks perfectly fine on an eInk kindle's display. And it's easier on the eyes.
But yep, everybody's different.
I also like the idea of the Note 2. But I have no use for it that doesn't involve headaches or hand cramps :p

Pondlife  Jan. 26, 2013 at 15:05

Yep I do fail to see what it could be used for. Yeah we've all heard Gorillas claims before... So other than that a case that opens on either side, adds extra fun to the turn that phone around games.
Doesn't seem innovative just gimmicky
Yeah you could export the web page turn phone round, read the page, turn it back, select next page export it, turn it round, read the page. Very convenient.
Reads well on the large version of the kindle is that? If so, so what, hardly applicable to a screen about 1/4 of the area? Bet the pictures look awesome too. :)

JanSt / MOD  Jan. 26, 2013 at 18:59

Pondie, you can save and scroll through pages and pages. The ink screen can display more than a page at a time :p You just wanna hate it. :D

JanSt / MOD  Jan. 26, 2013 at 19:02

As to GG3: I don't know what Spigen use exactly, but their glass screen protector for the iPhone takes incredible abuse! Much tougher than any screen I used. Then there's a slightly raised bezel to protect the screen.
But maybe you're right and it'll materialise as a half-assed prototype only?

Pondlife  Jan. 26, 2013 at 19:09

I've got an ereader and can't imagine wanting a smaller e-ink screen unless it was considerably better.

Oh and I missed the repeated cleaning the screen bits if you don't have dual opening case.

Not that I want to hate it, just think it's really dumb idea much like Sony's P tablet was or Nokia's old dual flip out keyboard phone. Even if they could make the one screen work both ways that would be a better option.

How can I get to see my wi-fi password on my galaxy S2, I have lost the card with the details on, I need to enable another phone to my wi-fi?

JanSt / MOD  Jan. 27, 2013 at 12:45

How can I get to see my wi-fi password on my galaxy S2, I have lost the card with the details on, I need to enable another phone to my wi-fi?
What?
Do you mean to ask about the S2's 'hotspot' feature - i.e. you want to use your Galaxy S2 as a WiFi access point for another device? Then, what CARD are you on about? Just check the settings in the "hotspot"/tethering app on your S2. The password is shown there (the password the OTHER device needs to access the hotspot).
If I got this all wrong, please rephrase your question; and also: start a new proper thread - more people might see your question ;)

He wants to know the wep/wpa code for his wireless router.

It should be on a sticker under the router. That's assuming you haven't changed it before.

AhmadCentral  Jan. 27, 2013 at 13:06

But Jan, I agree.

Some of the topics/posts people post are just way too cryptic. Would it kill people to add a bit more information to their posts!

Seriously? He posted another thread, and it's just as unclear. What has the S2 to do with it?
It'd be more helpful to say WHAT ROUTER HE USES!!!!! Then change the password using his PC/Mac... gee - guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! E.g. Eircom's netopia routers are piffle in that regard.
Bringing up the SGS2 made me think he meant ITS password that the hotspot app generates. LOL
There's a case FOR Ritalin
