Apple CEO Tim Cook Calls OLED Displays “awful” Is Apple Getting Desperate?
Tuesday 12th of February 2013
Today Apple’s CEO is in the news once again, just a few days after he blamed a dead man for Apple’s abuse of the US patent system. Tim Cook was speaking at Goldman Sachs’ Technology and Internet conference and he had this to say about his competitors displays vs the iPhone 5:“When you look at displays, some people are focused on size. There’s a few other things about the display that are important. Some people use OLED displays, the color saturation is awful. The Retina display is twice as bright as an OLED display. I only bring these points up to say there are many attributes to the display, and what Apple does is sweat every detail. We care about all of them and we want the best display, and I think we’ve got it. I’m not gonna comment about what we’re gonna do in the future, but it’s always broader than that which can be defined by a simple number.”The first thing that must be said is that Cook does have a point. The iPhone 5 unarguably has a fantastic display. The software may be in a distant second to Android in terms of sharing, customizati
Phone thinks battery is dead and powers off, then it shows 50% upon restart.

My DX2 suddenly sucks for battery life. This morning I took it off ther charger at 100% and used it for 20 minutes looking at twitter. I got the 15% remaining message and 2 minutes later I get the 5% message and it immediately shuts down. I go to plug it in and the larger battery graphic comes up (the one it shows when you are charging it while it's off). And it says 80%. So I unplug it and turn it back on. Once it went through it's boot up and aquired signal and all that, my battery widget shows 50%. I plugged the charger back in and in about 10 minutes, it said 60%.A couple days ago, I left the house with 90% and turned on GPS and navigation. I got 8 miles from my house and it shut down due to dead battery.Is the battery going bad or is something else the issue.Whenever I check the battery usage, it either shows DISPLAY or IDLE as the number one battery user.
Display is dead
Thursday 01st of December 2011
I have the original Droid which is 2 years old now, suddenly had issue with display today. I see nothing on display. If I call the phone, I hear it ring. I tired powering down, up. I tried removing battery and putting it back. When turned on, the keyboard lights up, the icons at the bottom of the display light up but nothing on the screen. I don't have any warranty on the phone. Is there a way to fix this?If I can't fix it, I am considering buying a used Droid on Ebay. There seem to be lots of them for less than 100. If I get one on Ebay, is it easy to activate it with Verizon with the same phone number and plan that I currently have? I wouldn't want my contract extended though. I am currently eligible to upgrade with a $30 discount but am not ready yet.Thanks for the help.

My D2G Display is dead.
Tuesday 26th of April 2011
Hey Everyone-Okay, so a little background on my D2G:Running Liberty 2.0.1, flashed it with the d2g rommer (using the correct version). No problems since I did all of this about 3 weeks ago.Just now when I slid the keyboard out and transitioned to landscape, the entire screen scrambled. I could make out my background and homescreen icons (kind of), I closed the keyboard and it returned to normal. I tried to open it again, and it happened again. This time when I closed the keyboard the jumbled screen remained... jumbled. I removed the battery to do a hard reset and now my D2G won't turn back on. Or at least the display won't turn back on. When I re-insert the battery and hold the power button, the 4 buttons on the bottom light up (and respond to being touched in that they give haptic feedback). I've noticed the screen with slightly light up and then go completely dark in about 2 second cycles.What to do from here? Rsd/sbf? Any help will be greatly appreciated!UPDATE:I hooked it up via the USB, and the computer found it. In addition, the LED is blinking like I have notifications. Also w

[Help!] Galaxy Tab 7+ Dead (?)
Tuesday 31st of December 2013
My galaxy tab 7+ won't turn on, display is dead. Connected to a charger, nothing happening. Haven't used it for quite a while. The bottom-left corner (screen facing me) is quite warm when connected to the charger, with the rest of the tab rather cool. Tried holding down power button for as long as possible, nothing. It was running rooted stock ICS normally. After some weeks of not using it, it went into this state. Did i just hardbrick my tab? How can i fix it? Will Samsung Philippines be able to service my tab even if it's out of warranty? Thanks!

GS3 Shuts Down Due to Dead Battery but Battery is NOT Dead!
Friday 01st of August 2014
I had an S2 that stopped recognizing a charged battery. I could power it up and as soon as the Sprint logo screen appeared it would shut down. It would display gray dead battery but if you held the power button for a sec it showed the actual green fully charged battery. Worked OK as long as plugged into the wall but died the instant you unplugged it. Put in a new battery, no change. Took it to Sprint store and they said too bad, you need a new phone. Replaced the 2 year old S2 with a new S3. The S3 is now 2 years old and just died. It is doing EXACTLY the same thing. It does not recognize the fully charged battery, thinks the battery is dead. Works fine plugged in but dies the instant you unplug it. Will turn back on but shut down as soon as the Sprint logo splash ends. What gives???
