    Maybe it has so many options/settings it's frustrated you? This is another reason why I HATE doing a factory reset. I Will spend AGES trying to get Go Ex Launcher to look EXACTLY how I want it to.

    However, this is the beauty with the launcher, the fact it's extremely customizable...

    You can even rename & resize icons which is great. Only downside to Go Launcher EX is the fact it's time consuming to get things looking perfect...

    not sure about go launcher, but with tsf, you can save your configuration to a file, so if you move phones, you can transfer the config file across and it will reload your entire layout (widgets and app shortcut positions) within reason as it still requires you to have a similar resolution screen). some of the app links will load up but will be broken if you havent installed those apps yet, but it ends up being quite nifty.

    maybe see if your launcher has the same feature ninja'd away somewhere?

    What really irritates me about Go Launcher EX is that it has multiple components that have to be downloaded separately. Then it adds a bunch of new shortcuts everywhere that I find to be useless.

    Clever, a good idea to have that in a launcher, saves you the extra work. Will see if Go Launcher has this feature.

    True, however, either manually delete them or use Titanium Backup to remove any unnecessary $hit you don't need.

    I'm just about to buy the Samsung Galaxy Note II, couldn't resist.

    I can get hold of one brand new with a year's warranty for just £342. :D

    Dude go to Verizon and complain. They should not be making you pay full price for selling you broken phones. Years ago I bought the LG Voyager which was a piece of crap and kept breaking. I eventually told them to refund my money and I'm going to another carrier and they caved and let me buy a new phone at the contract price instead of full retail.

    I can't believe you are having so many problems with the Trophy though. I've had mine for a year and a half and its been great.

    My first Trophy worked great until the rear speaker blew out. The second one stopped sending/receiving texts and exhibited issues with it's wifi antenna. The 3rd I only used for a couple days, but it arrived with a faulty rear speaker and showed signs of having issues with sending/receiving texts... My Galaxy Stellar is having issues with it's cellular antenna already so I'm gonna have to go talk to Verizon about that. I'm actually happier with my Galaxy Stellar overall....just need to get the issue with the cellular antenna sorted and it would be perfect.

    Yeah about the same here in Aus. I'm still deciding if I should get the Nexus 4 or grab something like a Lumia 920 / 820 for my work phone.

    Same in states as well i think. Somehow i think its a mess up from Google Play. I might go to the shop and play with it and then trade in my SG2 and get nexus 4! Im not too bothered about 8 GB of space tbh. i *s t r e a m* music anyway

    So, how do I make apps I download go onto the microSD instead of the internal storage on ICS?
