I just purchased swifkey tablet version. It is just getting downloaded as I painfully type this with default keyboard.. too difficult.

Edit- what a world of difference! I can now type just like I do with my phone equipped with SwiftKey!
Its for 16 GB without 3G. India is not going to get 32GB and 3G Nexus. Now beat that ! 20000/- for a tablet which costs $200 in US.

I bought it from within India itself through HS18. They import it from US. Just had to pay 15K+ for 8 GB, I am satisfied with the overall experience. Wish it just had 16GB. I don't want 3G on it anyway.

Browser benchmark is same on both ROMs stock and touchwiz. Touchwiz does not change browser performance.

Yes you are right. Thanks for correcting. So Nexus4 has LG branding but I dont know if that is a bad thing. I'd be happy to buy it if LG launches it here in India at the same price as in US. It is available on ebay with some US based resellers but at a premium.

Has anyone used whatsapp plus? It seems there are lot of nice features which help to transfer bigger size pics and files over it. However i am unable to download it via my phone, each time all the links point to a paid site and the free download never begins.

Tried the XDA link as well, but nope.

Came from Apple family to Samsung S3. Pretty new to Android. Before I jump into flashing and rooting, need a help. Got a marble white S3, damn in need of a case. Which is the best ?

Flipkart now has the Moto Atrix 2 available for 18k, with a free HDMI cable thrown in. Does it make any sense to buy this? It's fantastic value for money no doubt, but my only concern is availability of spares in case something goes wrong.

I am not really interested in the SGS Advance (the popular alternative to the Atrix 2). It was promised ICS update but never received it, now they are promising JB update directly but I very much doubt that would happen as well. If I have to live with GB knowing that I can't get any update ever, I would rather get myself a Tipo or a Micromax A110 with ICS out of the box. Heck, I'll even prefer living with an HTC Explorer. Why would anyone spend 19k on a GB device which neither has any xda support nor is going to receive any realistic update?

Also, can owners of the A110 share some feedback about the call quality and network reception? Also, does it make sense to spend an extra 3k to get the A90S or the Lenovo P700i? I have generally heard good feedback about the A110 except that the back cover is flimsy and loose.

Anyone found a good deal for Nexus 4? The best I can find is 21k for the 8gb version which I find pretty high considering it costs just $299 in US.

The galaxy nexus running jellybean.

As for the browser performance, it is the Os version that makes a difference then. Same browser (dolphin) is performing better (read more smooth scrolling and pinch zoom) in galaxy nexus than a friend's S3 I saw, and also my brother's HTC One X. The difference is so evident.

it's Jelly Bean at work. It makes a whole lot of difference to the overall smoothness of the phone. I also flashed my wife's Dell XCD35 with JB and it's working butter smooth, way better than GB based CM7.2 it was running earlier. Not to mention the extra features that come with JB which add lot of value.
