PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Many people think that all Androids are equal and it's a race to the bottom where the cheapest vendor wins. This could not be farther from the truth. For me, it all began half-a-year ago, when I bought the Samsung Galaxy S III and was absolutely stunned by it, then exploring and comparing it with other Androids. Now that Google has fired a shot across the bow with its low pricing for the unlocked Nexus 4, where does that leave Samsung and its flagship handset?

This is simple, Watson.
On Google Android, to have comfortable reading you *HAVE* to put screen timeout to 5 min, while on Samsung 1 min does the trick. It auto-refreshes as long as you look at it.

I seriously doubt this saves battery. Having the camera on all the time, and constantly doing some DSP on the image to detect a face just to save a minute the odd time when someone leaves their phone lying around but doesn't turn off the screen? No way in hell that gives you a net power saving.
