The ironic thing is that most of the problems that Tasker is able to solve wouldn't exist if I didn't have a smartphone in the first place.

So I put in a double capacity battery and I still don't think it'll last through the day. It'll get me through work, at least.

I got extra batteries that were supposed to last at least 20% longer, and they don't even last half as long as the battery my phone came with.

What can you do to maximize your battery life? As in, that the battery itself doesn't degrade, not that it uses less power. Should you charge it only when it's below a certain capacity, or is it fine to plug it in at 90% too? How about leaving it plugged in after it's done charging?

Wikipedia cites a source that recommends avoiding deep discharge, performing frequent top-up charges, and storing with at least 40% charge; however, it also has a note suggesting that the source is unreliable, though it doesn't say why.  On leaving plugged in to a charger, that's mainly a matter of the quality of the battery management built in to the device, I think - it should be harmless.  I still see sources recommending behaviour (always discharge fully before recharging) that was essential for NiCd batteries, but no other type - that is simply not relevant with lithium batteries.

My old iPhone battery is still performing well at three years.  My usage only discharges it to 75% a day, on average, and I leave it on charge every night.  Once I deliberately did a deep discharge because I read (in the source above) about the battery level indicator needing an occasional recalibration; it had no effect.

My experience with non-OEM replacement batteries for players and laptops has varied from OK to abysmal, with more of the latter than I would like.

I've actually had good luck with this battery, it doesn't last as long as others have said it does, but it gets me through the full day (why it takes a 5000mAh battery to do that is beyond me, but the 2500mAh one would die by mid-afternoon if I used it enough).

I reset my phone to factory settings last night, because I was having a lot of problems (like the battery overheating randomly) and decided it was time. I decided to attempt to root it at the same time. The rooting itself seemed to go well but I couldn't install (flash?) a ROM and then I gave up and it wouldn't restart and I had to reset it to factory settings again.

Determining the "best" is subjective, unfortunately. Every phone has features that may or may not meet the demands of certain people. You should check out some reviews if you're currently looking for a new phone!

"Rooting" is breaking the security of the phone's operating system (getting access as the "root" user, which is the most basic system user in Unix-like systems - so the term can be used for other computers as well).  People do this in order to be able to install programs that the supplier doesn't give permission to be installed for whatever reason.  It is the same process as is used by viruses to install keyloggers on your desktop and hence steal your banking passwords and identity.  Although not yet common, there are viruses for phones, and a rooted phone would be more vulnerable to them.  So you need to balance your convenience in running a program you otherwise could not against the risk of having your identity and banking details stolen (if you use your phone for anything that should be secure, that is).

As someone responsible for computer security, you can guess which side I come down on, even though there is a program I'd dearly like to be able to run on my iPhone!

It's not just programs that aren't allowed, there are also several apps on the android market that have added functions if you have a rooted phone. I use it almost entirely for Android ROM Customization and an app called Tasker which allows you to set up a lot of automation on your phone.

But, if the person isn't a power user who is security conscious, then rooting it is basically just giving them a phone with bad security.

Rooting isn't really necessary for the majority of people, in my opinion. So unless you or your wife are big computer nerds that want to be able to customize your tablet more than Android already allows (and they allow much more than Apple devices) then you can ignore the world of rooting.

As for her new tablet, it's fairly simple to set up an Android tablet, usually. It may be easier for her to go to the Google Play store (play.google.com) to look at apps on a computer before she downloads them, at first. Other than that, we are here to help you if you need it :)

I got an application that lets me use my phone as a touchpad. That will come in handy in the unlikely event that I ever find myself at my computer without a mouse or a keyboard, but for now, it helps to give me multitouch functionality on a laptop that normally doesn't have any. Precision is rather poor, though. Now, if only it was possible to simply use it as a mouse...

I love my S3, even though I'm not letting myself hack it anymore because my Note died* of a non-hacking related incident, but rooting it voided the warranty, which meant I had to get a new one.

*It still works, but the SIM tray malfunctioned somehow, so it only works on wifi. I might mess around with different ROMs on it and use it as a mini-tablet if I have the time.

Okay, so I've got the classic conundrum:

iPhone or Android? (read: iPhone or Samsung?)

Birthday is tomorrow, looking at phones.

Pros of an iPhone 4 seem to be its speed, ease of use, the deal I can get on it (8GB, unlimited data/texts, 2000 minutes, 26 a month)
Cons seem to be flawed design (1 out of every 2 iPhone users seems to have a fucked up screen) and the fact I work in London and gangs go around hunting for iPhoners.

I'm looking at a couple of Samsungs - the Ace II which seems to be fairly middle of the road but only runs Gingerbread, and the S II which is older but comparable to the iPhone 4 (hoping to find a similar price for it). Also, expandable memory. Android doesn't seem to get the flack it once used to, and I have quite a lot of Google affiliated crap (docs, mail, all that).

So essentially, cheaper Android running Gingerbread, more expensive Android running ICS, iPhone 4?

I should mention that I don't currently own a phone with apps so they all kind of seem similar to me. If I spend too long researching I'll never, ever buy a new one in fear that a newer, better one will come out.

Do NOT get a phone with Gingerbread. The S II has ICS and may actually get Jelly Bean soon.  That being said, if you can spring for the III...do it. It's an excellent phone.

I deal with a number of iPhones at work (as well as my own and my son's), and the only trouble with screens I've seen is that one person keeps dropping their phone on a stone floor and has smashed three screens so far.

So I've updated my device to the latest experimental build of Cyanogenmod 10.1, and with that comes some housekeeping. It seems my internal storage capacity is rapidly running out, and the reason for this is the backups I'm making with ROM manager before every update. For some reason, CM version 9 backups were never larger than 100 MB but all of my CM 10 backups are in excess of 1 GB. There are files called data.ext4.tar.a and system.ext4.tar.a that are ridiculously huge (800 MB/300 MB) and I don't think they're supposed to be that way. Regardless, I'm going to move them over to my computer for now.

I have an LG Optimus 2x running Cyanogenmod 10.1 and the Kowalski kernel.  The build's still experimental, but kowalski makes it pretty stable.  I tried MIUI v4 a month ago and it would run smooth as silk for about two minutes then lock up, making me have to remove the battery to reset it.  Kinda liked the UI though.

That feels like the right thing to do. I feel like the market is a bit stagnating, and the impeding rollout of smart watches is going to liven it up a little bit, and will hopefully make smart devices a bit more attractive.

Screw smartwatches. I want me some Google Glass.

But an S3 from January should last you though a 2 year contract just fine.

Do you have the Snapdragon or the Exynos version?

Eh, that's still alright. The snapdragon version has 2gb of RAM, the Exynos only has 1. And in Android, ram is a big deal.

Smartphones today are basically small computers that can make calls.
