Guys need help please. I was using Tubemate in my S3 since last year with excellent results, however recently started facing issues with videos not getting downloaded. There was a new version available hence did and upgrade. Now videos are downloading but not in HD. They only show options for non HD. Whats missing here?

Is something wrong with Tweetdeck? It doesn't seem to refresh on my S3 today!
Edit: saw some tweets that Tweetdeck is dead !

Any other recommended Twitter app for S3?

Falcon Pro, now that it is free. Although a bit tricky to get it working, it is well worth it.

@Ram, sticky situation that - one I am in, still

Xperia L looks just right, but the pic quality is what is stopping me. Just because I want good pic quality, I have looked up to the Xperia SP, but Sony seems to fail again there too. Sony does not seem to have anything even upto 25k, for our requirements .. and I havent checked higher models.

I had recently checked with a neighbor who works for LG. He said Samsung is ok, but build quality is not as good as a Sony. LG is behind both.

I am stuck like you are :(

Do you mean to say that even the Z isnt good ?

Regarding phones with good pic quality, the images from even a 5MP iPhone 4 are said to be good. This one is about 24-25k.
8MP in iPhone means crossing the 30k mark, which I dont want to do.

Yeap, i dont see much difference between my wife's N8 and my Z. Sometimes, Z is even bad. I dont use any settings, I just use the auto superior mode. The camera and speaker are the only gripe in otherwise wonderful phone which survived many bath tub and juice + milk spillage of my toddlers.

Slightly OT, I dont think any of the other models /phones - including the L, are liquid proof. Hope you have considered this while doing the shortlist.

Stretch the budget a shade more to 30K for the lesser known Sony ZL. I have been using it for over 2 months and barring a tiny software glitch, the phone is simply awesome.
