I was first introduced to Android with the Samsung Fascinate and I've been hooked ever since. I love the customization that Android offers the user to personalize their phone. I enjoy writing and have been blessed with the opportunity to share this passion for Android with others.

    Asphalt 8 isn’t all that is was hyped to be! 69p isn’t bad, I spent about 30mins on it, but doubt I’ll return, I value the 1gb + it takes up more.

    Now back to Real racing 3 I think.

    I can’t install the dragons of Atlantic game, I lost 6 months to that when it was on g+ and Facebook. I it took all my will to kick that habit.

    A8 is pretty good. Needs some fps work but it looks really good it’s the first Asphalt with 5 stars out the gate
