Hello, I am still confused about which phone I should buy, the HTC One X or the Samsung Galaxy S3. I want a phone thats durable, and if any problems occur with it, (like software or hardware issues) the repairing can be done at a cheap rate.
Rohit, based on durability videos I have seen, I will say the HTC One X seems to be quite durable and well built. That said, Samsung tends to make smartphones that hold up very well also. I don’t necessarily think one phone will be much cheaper to repair than the other, so I wouldn’t use that as a deciding factor of which phone to purchase. In this case, I think it comes down to what you prefer. The HTC One X has more aesthetic appeal, whereas the Galaxy S3 has a bit more in the technological area. From a durability standpoint, I would lean in the direction of the One X.
I write, and for mobility’s sake I may get one of the available folding keyboards I’ve seen online, to enter text into a note taking app. My question is, can my phone be configured to not display the touch-screen keyboard when I’m using the add-on device?
Peter, I will start by saying I’m not 100% certain of this. I don’t currently use any USB or bluetooth keyboards with my smartphone. On the other hand, I have used one in the past. If I am recalling correctly, the on-screen keyboard did still come up when inputting text. I am going off of memory here, so it is possible that I may not be completely accurate. That said, as I am aware, I do not know of a way to disable the on-screen keyboard from popping up during text entry. If there is a way, then I am not aware of it. Again, bear in mind, this isn’t something that I have done in quite some time, so that answer may not be completely accurate.
