It is not actually false....the real answer is that YMMV. But yeah, the battery lifes do suck a.ss on phones that aren't running stock Android.
root your phone.
the htc hero has working jelly bean roms.
it was released in 2009.
That is not the same as getting regular updates that is meant for your phone.
you heard wrong.
4.3 implemented FSTRIM, and you can download LagFix on the market to run it on any other phone that doesnt have 4.3 atm.
He heard wrong? So it's true for every version outside of 4.3 (even though 4.3 is having it's lag issues at the current moment?
Are you really using a version of Android that is ran by 0.0% of users to make a point to someone? fu*king android heads always lying to people.
No, it's very true.
get your phone at best buy and get their insurance.
its not an instant swap but it only takes 3-4days.
So you're telling him to spend extra money for the same service he'd get for free for 1 year MINIMUM with Apple?
Best Buy's plan is $10 a month...that's $120 for 1 year and $240 over a 2 year period of your phone.
AppleCare+ is $100 for a 2 year extension... and for people who keep a phone for only a year, you don't even need to worry about that sh*t because it's FREE and comes with the product...
All products have mandatory 1 year warranties but all other companies suck a.ss at it especially samsung/htc etc...so you have to go through your carrier. I'm sure Windows Phones does a better job if you have access to their Microsoft Stores.
But no, your solution is to pay an extra $120, minimum, and an extra $240 for 2 years.
