The Galaxy S runs flash exceedingly well now since the upgrade to Android 2.2 and Flash 10.1, now with Android 2.3 coming to the handsets there's no doubting it's Flash abilities. I've been playing Flash games and flash animations on my Galaxy S for a while, and it's always performed well. "There's no mobile device that can run flash well" is a completely false statement. Typical Apple statement; completely untrue. Similar to their "this changes everything" marketing campaign, which effectively sells off their take on previous innovative products and claims the innovation as their own.
ra540i, 19 Apr 2011OMG,... is no one reading this article correctly?!? ADOBE IS MAKING ALL FLASH CONTENT AVAILAB... moreNot adobe being weak,its apple being forced to operated and Steve Jobs finally have sense,Android has taken over as world leader and the experts predict ios is about to fall back to third place behind wp7 in second so its a measure forced on apple.
Man.... slowly, more and more people are moving onto smartphones. I've owned Nokia N95s, iphone, iphone 3G, iphone 3GS. And I suddendly had a EPIPHANY.
julianfa, 19 Apr 2011the best phone made better!Sorry to disturb your dreams iphone is not the best phone made, lol it still has no flash how pathetic, full bluetooth etc etc etc should i go on?
julianfa, 19 Apr 2011the best phone made better!no, that will be 'the best phone in the world'(mega-lolcano) still playing catch up with devices that are pushing 5 years old.
Meditator, 19 Apr 2011Dear GreekGreek,
Would you be kind enough to share your experience of android against iphon... moreWell, it pretty much depends what your usage would be. If it's simply making calls, SMS, and some mail - iphone will suit you better as out of the box it just works as a regular feature phone. It will have good battery lifetime on top. But if you want to go a step further and customize it, get an access to the filesystem, or simply use it as a Smartphone, you'd have to jailbreak it and start the cat&mouse game with Apple. Updates are crap and introduce more bugs, than they're supposed to fix, and it's far from intuitive usage (Android also btw)..
Android doesn't suffer from those issue, but also have many drawbacks - mostly miserable battery life, not so stable, plenty of hardware issues..but if you choose your phone clever you won't have any problems.
My honest opinion is that once you have an apple device at home, you'd either love it (and buy more from them), or never get anything from that company again. I'm in the 2nd group as when I got the iphone it was well ahead of the competition. Nowadays it's behind in more or less any aspect and I don't recommend it to anyone, who is not apple fan by default. ;)
First phone which really can RUN flash how it should be is upcoming galaxy s2, gsmarena's galaxy s2 flash video was impressive. I definately want to see more videos about that and see is it really that good.
Meditator, 19 Apr 2011Dear GreekGreek,
Would you be kind enough to share your experience of android against iphon... moreNot the person you asked for, but I think a response from anyone is good for you.
Apples are simple. They are clean, elegant and above all; stupid. Their software is designed to bring apps to the less gadget wary mass population, and so they are quite....tame. They are also expensive.
Droids, depending on the one you get, allow you enormous freedom to do that which you want. You can change, and adjust, and tweek with so much more on an android, your phone truly is YOURS if you make it so. Some of the apps are a bit shoddy in comparison, but most are fairly competitive matches. But, go for a HTC/Motorola/Samsung. I would err toward HTC personally, purely for reliability. My Galaxy S and my FLIPOUT were both a bit patchy on the reliability front.
if watching flash content is a battery hogger, and a resource hogger.
It does not do those things when you are on a non flash site.
Resource hogging, when you need it.
Presents no problem at all when you dont need it.
This is just silly.
Apple should really start to support flash in the browser. Not transcoding services as this.
Maybe iPhones are ok for a lot of people, without flash...
but when it comes to iPad's, that are suppose to be internet devices, its a bit limitation!
when you get everything in a phone with android (more to come ) why waste time on i phone lets support android the future when it is free and we can get a device with android at affordable price, why should we promote i phone and end of the day we cant afford it. the best phone ever is the x10 mini , i luv it
Every thing is changing fast. IOs is going douw the drain, not because I am seing, but is already told everybody tha it will be.
People change to quiqly, but that is the reality. now a days wee are saying LOT OF PEOPLE SAYNG THAT THE WINDOWS 7 IS GOOD.
maybe because the anoucemente of the HTC with duo core, but people is starting to say good thins about that OS!!!!!!
It is not only because of nokia, but is because the company is the one that more undersand of operating systems!
Come on Steve..Work together with Adobe and u will win this smartphones and tablet market..Steve,Please dun ignore the importance of Adobe Flash..u will regret someday in the future..
GreekGeek, 18 Apr 2011I think now Adobe must refuse Flash in iOS for a change. BTW i changed my iPhone4 for a Androi... moreDear GreekGreek,
Would you be kind enough to share your experience of android against iphone 4. I need to make a quick decision pertaining the two and i am not sure which one.
Beseeching an early and favourable response.
A report in the Guardian newspaper that IOS smartphones have lost over 40% of its market share in the last 12 months.
Its worse in France where market share has halved.
Gone in Flash?
AnonD-619, 19 Apr 2011seroiusly guys apple devices doesn't need flash...have been using iOs devices for 4 years now.... morestop trying to make excuses for apple if nokia is able to use it in there shit browser and android and maemo 5 can use it then iOS and apple shouldn't have any problem it's steve and his ignorance and him trying to take over everything which is the problem
