I hope the back of the S3 isn't made from icecream container plastic...

I just plugged the Sensation into the Jeep's AUX port with a 3.5mm patch cable. It's OK, but I wonder how it would compare to the XE? What's a good aftermarket music player with graphic equaliser?

PowerAmp for android, its got great sound and controls, also plays FLAC.
With a bit of hacking the Beats Audio feature can be added to any HTC phone.
I have heard its built into the newer version of sense.

I do however like the premium suite you can get for the Note:

There is also the Sony Xperia S coming out in April, along with the HTC One

The one x is coming out April. The S3 is apparently coming out May 22nd. (Too far away, planning on getting it this week or next , mum has no phone)

The note caught my eye probably because of the S pen. I do a lot of doodling (Graphic designer side of me) and i have papers everywhere haha. If the note was literally half a inch smaller, i would have it.

The HTC one x is a contender, however, i don't like sense. I don't like simple when it comes to phones, i like a challenge. (Yeah and i have a iPhone!)

Decisions decisions.

Its a bit awkward to talk on, lucky i only really text.

Apart from that i'm still susin' out android. Does anyone know if you can change the bottom dock around?? (Phone, contacts etc)

Only thing I'm disliking is the notifications sound is very quiet, can't hear texts unless its in front of me.

Not sure how to change the dock icons, as I use a custom launcher myself which gives me endless customisation options for the homescreens and even the app draw.
