    Yeah never take a smartphone into the desert if you can't charge it. :P I rather be with a dumb phone personally in the situation.
    So you won't use gps :p if you're lost in the desert :/

    What if there's no ability to charge? Having a fast charging phone is great if the ability to charge is available.
    That's why you get a portable charger pack :)

    I'll try not to get lost in the desert??? With GPS on my L920 would be dead in 2-3 hours...

    Also a compass is a great low tech solution. Knowing what direction to go in helps though.

    I have a portable charger because my battery can barely make it through 6 hours use. But if the battery only takes 30 secs you'd need a special charger I'm sure. :P

    The Swiss post has never failed me. But now it says it's not delivered yet. Either it's a mistake in the system, or quality in Switzerland is really decreasing...

    They've been around for years. The people who need them are people who travel to places were communication systems are not that great. I see they've created new systems smartphones.

    Morning folks. At home today doing assignments for class. Just looking jn briefly while on break and shaking my head at the trolling I see here on WPC.

    If I hear another person ***** about Samsung's "cheap plastic design, Android rehashed mess", I swear I'll hit them with a Galaxy Tab upside the head...

    Hmm, hard to believe someone's name is "Fan Bingbing". I wonder, as her name implies, if she is a big fan of Bing, Bing? Found her burning my Bingbing, er, I mean Bing, searches for the day.
