July 10th, 2012 08:43 AMTwiggyNight, huh?
Efficient code on Windows Phone usually means relying on the GPU a whole lot more that its contemporaries.
It also started with the only version of Internet Explorer 7 with HWA.
July 10th, 2012 08:40 AMArcherForces them to have efficient code, I guess. Good night.
July 10th, 2012 08:38 AMTwiggyA 1.5 GHz single core is the maximum.
July 10th, 2012 08:31 AMArcherNah, I'll probably just go to the nearest Telstra (our main telco) shop and try them. Keeping the iPhone until the iPhone 5 comes out, when my contract will be over and I can renew.
Is WP7 still limited to single-core?
July 10th, 2012 08:24 AMTwiggyAnd you might want until HTC comes out with with a quad-core Windows Phone 8, by the way. Or Nokia. Whoever is faster.
July 10th, 2012 08:22 AMTwiggyI think a phone can last forever if it's good.
I still see people with 3310s
July 10th, 2012 08:20 AMArcherI don't mean to change, though. I just want to have a play around with ICS and WP7 at some stage.
And all of the phones makes sense now. Not like a mate of mine who upgrades about 3 times a year. In just over the last year, he went GS2, iP4S, Nexus, GS3.
July 10th, 2012 08:14 AMTwiggyOh, and by the way, you need to do a registry hack on the computer to acheive access xD
July 10th, 2012 08:13 AMTwiggyI think you should stay with what you know the most unless you really, really hate it.
(Which is precisely what I did with my old phone - Android 2.3.x with all that Samsung cruft won't cut it on that old phone. And even with hacking to 4.0.4, it is barely usable.
I keep the other phone because I have three phone numbers. The one in my Lumia is the contracted one - microSIM. The prepaid one is because I can't make international calls with a postpaid under a student's pass. The third number is Malaysian - I have weekly trips there.
July 10th, 2012 08:06 AMArcherYeah, it's sounding more and more like an OS that's worth checking out. Not that I intend to move away from iOS; I just want to sate my curiosity.
The naming scheme all depends on the circle of company you're in. With customers, I might say Intel Core i5 (slipping in the Intel name always makes them feel better), whereas around other enthusiasts (especially on tech forums), I would say a 3570K, omitting the i5 or similar nomenclature in its entirety.
Quick question: how and why do you still have/use two phones?
July 10th, 2012 07:39 AMTwiggyI like how without doing anything special to the phone I can gain direct filesystem access to my Windows Phone in Windows, to the user-writeable space. I can't execute from there, but I can use it as a makeshift drive on anything with Zune installed.
July 10th, 2012 07:37 AMTwiggySnapdragon or APQ8055?
Core i5 or i5-2467M?
Yeah, there's a lot to the name, all right.
July 10th, 2012 07:32 AMTwiggyHmm
I've noticed that given almost the same platform specifications, even the Galaxy S hacked to run Android 4.0.4 have less than 50% of web browsing performance. o.O
July 10th, 2012 07:13 AMArcherSorry for the late reply, I've been a little busy over the last few days.
You're welcome to it and you're not the first to use it. That said, your interpretation looks far better than mine. I might revamp mine accordingly.
July 7th, 2012 09:36 AMTwiggyOne of the signatures I'm considering right now is to clone yours.
