Err, I don't think any regulars from this website have warranties on their phone due to unofficial ROMs. Lewis could be an exception - let's hope he stumbles on this post.

I have the 2.3.5 update for the SGS2 which although I flashed via Odin, unofficially, it is an actual Samsung update and did contain the new market style.

matt, yes, I updated it to Gingerbread for her via KIES a couple of weeks ago. Official ROM - official update :)

I got an official Android Market update a couple of weeks back. I'm running stock Android 2.2 on a vanilla/unbranded HTC Desire.

Still waiting on both an unbranded Desire and an unbranded Sensation.

Still waiting on an unbranded, HTC desire HD! Was thinking about this last week, the current market is poor to navigate really.

matt101101 / MOD  Oct. 12, 2011 at 08:17

Does anyone know whether the SGS2 has got the update officially yet? As in via KIES as either an unbranded or carrier update?

Yeah the SGS2 has got it officially, I have 2.3.4 and my partner still has 2.3.3 and we both have the new market. Both official ROMS as well, not flashed (...yet...)

How did you guys update it? was it OTA? I'm still on the old marketplace. I've got a desire Z with gingerbread :)

matt101101 / MOD  Oct. 17, 2011 at 00:39

It just happens OTA, then when you next open the market you have to accept new T&Cs.

I have market ver 3.4.4 on unbranded HTC Desire HD. It came with OTA update on Tuesday this week. Sense 3.0 and android 2.3.5 was also pushed. The new lock screen with sense 3.0 is very good.

CTPAHHIK  Dec. 24, 2011 at 20:15

Sense is best thing around in terms of custom skin on top of plain Android. It's laggy, but functionality it deliver is great.

Treab  Dec. 24, 2011 at 20:23

ctpa. have you ever used the htc movie app? i got offered a sensation so im wondering if its any good?

CTPAHHIK  Dec. 24, 2011 at 20:26

Nope, sorry. I think that any phone available right now is utter crap in terms of pictures and movies.
I lag my Panasonic GF1 around for those special moments. I sure hope it could be smaller, but given quality it delivers there is not much alternative.

Treab  Dec. 24, 2011 at 20:32

why is it crap? probably my ignorance but im intrigued?

Picture quality depends on sensor size - not megapixels. There is a digital sensor inside each camera that converts light (picture) into digital signal. Bigger physical area of sensor allows better light capture, which results in clearer (less noise) picture.

Increasing megapixels increases resolution. Picture becomes bigger and if you look at it at lower resolution it becomes clearer and sharper. However, if you zoom in you will see all noise that is there.

10 megapixels gives you good enough resolution for pictures and the amount of noise is dependent on sensor sensitivity and size. Due to limitation of technology sensor cannot be very sensitive, so all professional cameras have big sensor, which is why they are physically so big.

If you take a few pictures or videos with high end cannon or nikon or sony camera you will see how clear and colorful pictures/videos come out. Phone, due to it's small sensor size, cannot get anywhere close to similar quality.

If you plan to post pictures on facebook and take them casually phone is good enough, since facebook picture quality is very bad. For personal memories phone pictures will not look good in 20 year on your 100+ inch TV that will be in place of your living room wall. They would probably look OK on LED on your fridge door :p, but not appropriate as ambient wallpaper on TV wall.
