Samsung is fixing to balkanize Android. No, thank you.
Among the remaining it just depends on what I can get at what price. My HTC one was $50 w/ two year contract. Yeah, I wish I could more easily replace the battery and a microSD slot, but the hardware works well and it's a good value.

Ruzzle. cross-platform, two minute rounds, in-game chat, multi-lingual, free/paid, phone/tablet. Faster game play than Scrabble knock-offs, a good combination of addictive and easy-to-put-down.
Oh, and the Spanish Inquisition.
^ ^ ^ Worked for me. Smooth sign up, app looked like it might cost but was free of charge. Haven't put up 20 GB or checked cross-platform feature. I'll update this after doing that.
I always wondered about the Tegra-centric part of these wonderful giveaways. Maybe a different product line each week? I like ZAGG stuff, would appreciate a free year of service from any of carrier, and would say thank you no matter how's small or large the item I won.

This looks like a good thing for the development community, but as a person who uses more than tinkers I'm not feeling it. Without a clear benefit to switching, I'll stay w/ the platform I know and spend my "tinkering time" trying to get more from a paradigm I understand.
Pardon me if this got answered already, but for what exactly should I search in the Play Store? I've tried
• cm Installer
• CyanogenMod Installer
None of these displayed a result that matched like this artcle. No results that had CyanogenMod as the developer.
Do I need an invite? Is this in beta? Would it not appear in Play Store if it's not available for the two phones I tried (Samsung GS2, HTC EVO 4) or for my carrier (Sprint)?
The article states Play Store, so I wouldn't get the installer or an apk directly from CyanogenMod.
I'd love to do this and I'd put the results in comments here, but I can't get started.
And the survey says...
86,712 ahead of me
I'm happy with Sprint. More affordable, decent choice of phones, customer sevice is really good. I know people love to hate sprint, but I've been with them for 10+ years, they've gotten better over that time.
I'm looking forward to doing this. S2, been sceptical about bricking it, but this makes it look pretty straight-forward. I'll give it a whirl and advise results.
I like QuickOffice, but haven't gotten completely off Polaris. Anybody have a strong preference and reason for it?

Any chance this could get updated?
Ideally every four to six weeks a table showing the best phone, it's name at each carrier, and a small review of what may become available at each carrier in the next three months. That'd make it very easy to make decisions on what phone to get and whether to wait or not.
Also, it'd make sense to put in special information such as the Sprint fee-less early termination for the next three weeks or discounts which typically appear at specific times of year.
Thanks for considering my suggestion.
"Back in the day..." I used a flip phone with two front-firing speakers that produced decent stereophonic sound. Not hi-fi, but I was happy w/ stereo when not near an FM receiver. Because this flip phone also had a useful FM transmitter for the music player and a microSD slot 2 GB supported.
As I type this on my MotoGoogle Photon Q (a five-row QWERTY slider), I see at least two places to add one speaker on the right side of the phone, turning it into a stereo unit.
Or am I the only person on planet who hates untangling ear bud cables?
No need for cable. Wrap a mag lev train around an iron post and turn the power knob to 11 and watch the fun.
On a more serious note, I don't know which would be more scary when it broke, a flexible cable or a solid iron post.
Alternatively, I could get a screen protector for a device significantly larger than the devices I will protect. But, I know and trust the invisibleSHIELD. I know that I haven't been able to trim one down when I've tried before. Does anybody know how to successfully trim an invisibleSHIELD? Does anybody know of a protector as good (or nearly) which can easily get trimmed to fit?

Hmm, I didn't notice any supernova. I slept in, but still…
“…or can be made…” re-inforces point 4. Unfortunately, the people who need dharr18’s wisdom most are least likely to tinker.
Absolutely! I forget where I read the following, but I never forgot what I read.

AmIT29, Upvoted your original comment and the one you added two hours later. HTH.
Don't know, though, how often the scores get updated. Maybe if overnight (Can you say "batch job"? Sure, I knew you could) you can enter for today before they close it and open up tomorrow’s window for entry.
