    Not sure if this has been discussed yet, but has anybody found a decent substitute for YouTube in iOS6? i really miss the app more than I thought I would.
    Yeah it's an app called YouTube made by google.

    Vastly better than the old apple app.

    Oh I see when I went under iPad-specific apps the YouTube app didn't show up. Problem Solved!

    I'll look at that one too though.

    Nothing was as reliable as stock and stock is slow and has bad battery life. 2 hours of usage then the battery's dead? As if the AMOLED being a battery hog wasn't enough, it also uses PenTile. Ugh.
    Man, I feel sorry for you. Shitty battery or something. I'm running stock and 2 hours is laughable.

    2 hours of screen-on time, trackable from settings. Two different batteries. Got an extended battery too which raised it to 2 and a half, but still rubbish.

    It's not the battery, it's the damn phone and Android's shitty power management as of ICS.

    That must've been a typo because iPod/Nexus 7 fill completely different roles

    Only problem is that it doesn't work on iOS 5 and lower, therefore iPod touch 3 or older devices.

    It's time for an upgrade anyway. Very soon.

    iPod Touch will still be better for games, which is a big part of Apple's market. The SGX543MP2 is still unsurpassed in a non Apple product except for devices with the Adreno 320, which to my knowledge is the yet to be released LG Optimus G.

    But on those devices you have Apple's app anyway.

    I just used an iPhone 5 for like a few seconds. It's honestly the best looking and built device I've seen/used.

    The materials make it feel nice to hold and very robust. Its weight is perfect and surprisingly light compared to the 4/4S. Despite having a taller display it somehow looks smaller than the previous model too most likely due to the the smaller bezel and thinner build. 10/10 design would play with again.

    I'd love one but I don't like iOS one bit :(

    I'm guessing you're using Android, I'm sure there's an Android device made of similar materials

    I've yet to see an Android device that feels as good as the iPhone in the hand.
    Never mind cheap ass plastic with a fake metal texture, or ceramic.
    The iPhone has weight to it, it feels sturdy in your hand, its not an amorphous blob with a creaky chassis.

    Apple make nice Hardware, software is their only real failing. (oh and attitude)

    Would it actually kill Samsung to actually make a well built phone?
    I mean really, the SIII wouldn't look so hideous if the thing was actually made out of metal.

    All the buttons aren't centred properly either, which just looks plain wierd.

    No reason to when people keep buying their phones and they're basically the only Android OEM not bleeding money.

    Small fix, I've moved the buttons into the correct place and ditched the awful branding.
    If you require branding plastered onto the front of your product, you do not have an iconic design, you have a generic device and the only way people know its made by Samsung is the fact its written on the front.

    The Nexus devices have no labeling on the front, and the Gnex is IMO a very distinctive device.

    The thing is more people would buy their phones if they were actually made out of decent materials. There's a good reason Apple is rich as shit.

    Why is it only Apple make quality hardware??

    They didn't even keep the rounded rectangular home button, they have a deformed toenail there now.
    The Home button was the only design related thing that differentiated the GS from the iPhone too.

    The same day you posted your previous reply, I had actually used my phone for a very long time. I didn't mean that it lasted more than two hours screen off, I'm not an idiot.

    Once again, I'm sorry for you, but I'm not gonna stop enjoying my phone because of your shortcomings. I've never had to charge the phone during the day, and I intend to keep it that way.

    can't wait for an iPhone 5 jailbreak, there is a method for jail broken devices to make Chrome and other web browsers use the Safari-only Nitro javascript engine, making Chome for iOS as fast as Safari
