Well when I was at the store they were telling me the big differance between the 2 and 3 is the processor and the bump to transfer data feature. I dont know if the processor speed and dual vs quad core is enough to persuade both her and I. She is very conservative when it comes to phones. She doesnt like to spend a whole lot on them and keeps them for years. Is the S2 a good phone? She says it is worlds better than her old my touch 4g and will only cost 14 dollars.

Get the s3 if you're keeping it 2 years. Android will slow down with updates over time... And apps demand more power with updates too. Small price for more future proof

True, Also why we were leaning towards the nexus 4. Rep said it is a google phone and google controls the android market so it will always get the updates. It also has the quad core processor.

The nexus is a nice piece of kit... but what the rep said is pure salesman bs with zero backing. There is no guarantee it will get all the android updates or not... entirely up to LG and what they do (as they manufactured it). Also up to the carriers to push the updates. Granted, if you root you can update virtually any android phone to new revs given some time for the community to get them tweaked. However, sometimes you don't want the new updates... as it could cause serious performance issues as tech keeps getting faster.

Yup.. The s2 is a great, but you'll have to put a custom rom and tweak it to make it handle apps in the next year without issues. The s3 will be good for a few years.

And if you do ever want to tweak the s3, I just so happen to know a guy who can do that for ya...

Usually end of summer they come out with new ones. I do all my photo edits on my 13". I also carry it frequently, so needed it to be small. Good bit is you can always hook it up to a tv or monitor if needing larger edits. I went with the 2.3gHz i5 processor and 8 gigs of ram. Going on two years strong, minus I'll need a new battery soon.....apparently I use mine more than the average user, by a lot.

Say we end up with the s2. What would be the cost for these upgrades?

13 vs 15 is just going to be a preference.

For photo editing, heavy photoshop effects rendering, I suggest the most ram you can afford. Just depends but the Mac Books are great hardware, I just hate apple software.

All free if you go online and read up on how to do it.. Samsung is the most simple to root/hack out of every manufacture and thanks to Odin, impossible to brick for the most part.

If you want me to do it, it will take beer.

Otherwise I'd start reading here.

Photoshop is a lot of work to learn to get good at it.. Keep trying.

What I'd suggest is get your truck pic's taken at the same time of day as fast as you can from the angles you want so the colors are closer. Then use the magic wand to crop out the trucks, hide your background and start trying to get the color/hue/tone to match up correctly.

There is a photoshop request thread somewhere on TW if you want someone to make you a bad ass sig.

Yea man I agree. Using 3 different pics isnt the best idea, but whenever I get bored photoshop is a fun way to kill some time.

Same... I get everything on newegg/amazon typically as it's so much cheaper. Also.... All the shops I knew of locally I think closed up several years ago (aside from Fry's lol).

Except my CPU of course... that's about as local as it gets as we built it in Chandler
