Geek talk...


I have not updated this blog recently. I was too busy relaxing LOL. Finished my commissioned works early and was too lazy to continue Resbak. Better enjoy the vacation i say, its alright since it will just get vaulted anyway LMAO!

Anyway out of boredom i played with my phone. The Sony Xperia X10 Mini that is. The one that is neglected by the company to upgrade hahaha. Why? Marketing strategy in order to sell their new phones. Then once they have earned that is the time they give out upgrades. Indeed a clever strategy, so that those who want Android 2.2 or higher will be forced to buy their new phones. CLEVER NOT!!! BITE ME!!!

Anyway i found a new update for the Custom ROM. MiniCM6 V1.0.1 (Android 2.2.1)

Instead of being stuck at Android 2.1 which SE says will give the best user experience i decided to make my own user experience ahahaha.

My phone is now enhanced, i did want to change it already but hey i am starting to love it.

My choices would have been the LG Optimus 2X, LG Optimus Black or the Samsung Galaxy SII

The 2X and Galaxy SII are dual core phone. Superphones if you want to call them. The Black on the other hand is a really good smartphone.

LG has big discount yesterday for the 2X. SRP should have been 27990 but yesterday they were selling the 2X for only 22990. Super cool deal for a dual core phone. I almost bought one.

Samsung Galaxy SII, the phone almost everyone has been wishing for will sell for 35K or less.
The Black will likewise have a discount, the SRP is 19990, but discount price is 16990.

Yes for 16990 you already have a really neat smartphone.
1Ghz processor, 2Gb internal memory, expandable to 32GB using micro SD. Super cool NOVA display. 5MP camera with HD capabilities. 2MP front facing camera for 3G calls. Etc etc etc.
Trust me its a must buy.

Funny thing is that HTC was going to bring out their new phone named the Sensation. They planned to sell it for 35k but if they did that Samsung would eat them up LOL. Well 35k is the usual price for HTC when they bring out new ones.
They decided to sell their new phone for 29990...Super funny LG gave away huge discounts ahahahaha.
The Sensation is a dual core phone too, its coming out on June but LG did a fast one ahahaha. Imagine dropping prices to 22990. Oh im sure a lot did get the 2X already. A wise strategy too, they know Pinoys are quite "ATAT" when it comes to new things. Those who cant wait for the Sensation and Galaxy SII for sure are tempted and might go for the 2X.

Waiting and preparing 35k or 30k....when you can get one dual core phone for 23k ahahahaha.

Now that is clever marketing strategy. For sure only the loyalist wont budge and for sure they would be the ones bashing LG on forums and blogs. Trying to put the 2X down. Oo ganyan ang Pinoy ahahahaha.

Pero pag natempt at bumili....Ay maganda ang LG...blah blah blah blah!!!

Anyway i love my Mini and i even applied a battery drain fix. I used to have a 1 percent battery drop per hour. Now my phone has been turned on for three hours after fully charging and doing a battery stats swipe using xrecovery....it has not drained even one percent.

Phone users, if the company cannot support your needs you can always head to XDA Developers.
