So my iPhone has decided to shit the bed and even after wiping and restoring it's still not 100% so it's time to upgrade.

I've been thinking about pre-ordering that Samsung Galaxy S7. Anyone here have a Galaxy by chance? Good? Bad? Indifferent?

You can do VR shit with the Galaxy so that's probably cool. I'm still drinking the Cupertino Kool Aid so I can't say for sure.

Which is the only reason I want one. I realize I don't do all that much with my phone except check Facebook,tumblr,and email. I don't really game on it or do anything like that.

But for 100 bucks I can get a mask that allows me to slip a samsung in and have "VR" lite stuff? sign me up.

It's what The Fahey would do, Grave, so, yeah. Rerb and Lesley are gonna merge their pixels and stuff. Though I think it'll be Rob who's left like a giggling maniac, like Marnie was.

Also reviews are starting to hit

apparently yeah. Good to know if I ever drop it in the toilet I will only need to get rid of it because it's forever unclean and not busted.

I fucking love this phone. So goddamn much. I forgot how editable androids are. Even without rooting it.

This screen is AWESOME.

So I just installed a new plug in for the forum called Tapatalk. You can get the app if you want an easy way to reply on your phone. If any of you use this and run into issues or whatever let me know and I'll disable it. I'm gonna testbthis for a bit. I guess it'll do push notifications and shit.

Is anyone else with an iPhone running 9.3.2 having problems with Siri and dictation for texts? I know my mic is working but there's no voice recognition on those two services. Like, the wavelength thing stays flatlined like the mic isn't picking up anything. It's definitely a software issue but I can't find any workaround for the text dictation. I don't really care about Siri.

Siri is useless but the text dictation is nice while you're driving. What's this Gboard, now?

Google's keyboard replacement. Fast and snappy. Awesome input of gifs and such. The text prediction and correction is light years better than Apple or Swiftkey. And the embedding Gooogle searches (maps for example) right from the text box is wonderful.
