Are you in the Android clan?0 posts
When I open Messenger on my phone there’s a link to download/open the new Hangouts app at the top of it. I imagine that rather than outright pulling the app, they’re going to wait until they feel enough folks have migrated over to the new Hangouts app.
Sorry, comments didn’t load automatically so I didn’t realize a similar point had already been made. :P
I don’t like how half of it is glossy and the other half has that diagonal pattern. Very jarring. That said I don’t spend a whole lot of time looking at a console.
I’m finding that downloads are moving way slower than they were on the old music app. They’re timing out a lot too (“Can’t download music right now.”)
Would also be nice if you could pin individual tracks from an album rather than the whole album.
Otherwise it’s a pretty awesome service.
Their money comes from the fact that they make most of their own components. No Android manufacturer is as vertical as Samsung. They also sell more parts to more companies than any other maker.
They’re the only Android manufacturer who aggressively markets their product, that’s all it is. No other manufacturer pushes their product as hard as Samsung, or at all really. It has nothing to do with a removable battery.
Doesn’t Android work like that by default or am I missing something here? If I receive a text message I can tap on the notification and it brings up a reply screen.
Dude these are all awesome.
That’s the Mianogen theme, it’s pretty awesome.

I like it, but much like the new Play Store I feel the cards are a bit overdone. There is also some low-imagery that makes the experience feel less immersive. The artist image header and album art tend to be a bit blurry for instance.
Overall a much need and way overdue overhaul of the music app. Still feel apps like Apollo and Now Playing look just a bit more stylish though.
I’ve owned the following phones
Sept 2010 – Samsung Captivate
Nov 2010 – HTC HD7
Apr 2011 – HTC HD2
July 2011 – Samsung Vibrant
June 2012 – HTC Sensation
Nov 2012 – Nexus 4
I thought 4.3" phones were ridiculous so I went with the Captivate on AT&T. I found that I hated the screen plus I was curious about Windows Phone, so I reluctantly switched to the HD7 on T-Mo.
I found that 4.3" phones were actually pretty awesome but Windows Phone was not so much (at the time) so I switched to an HD2 and put Android on it.
HD2 broke and I found a sweet deal on a Vibrant so I went back to the Galaxy S. I seriously think something was wrong with the screen on the Captivate because the Vibrant was much nicer.
Android 4.0 lagged like crazy on the Vibrant so I switched to a Sensation.
Went to a T-Mobile store and tried out a Nexus 4 — couldn’t go back to the Sensation afterwards.
I’ve tried out the other recent high end phones but nothing has tempted me away from the Nexus. Think I’ll be sticking with this for a while.
