Just got myself a HTC One X+ and it's by far the best phone I've owned.
Makes me wonder as well, the cost savings of adding an LED for the flash is little to nothing for them.My wife has a Samsung Galaxy Stellar. Pretty decent little phone overall. I find it extremely odd that a newer phone would not have a flash on the camera (hence no flashlight). It runs ICS wonderfully.
What did you use to Root your phone Mike?Ive been using an LG optimus S (ls670) rooted, and running a ported ROM of cyanogenmod 9 which is Ice Cream Sandwich. I think the OS version they designed this for was froyo or something. No, gingerbread. ICS is great. Waiting for the jellybean port to finish.
I can watch HQ YouTube vids now. something i couldnt with the stock rom.
Hmm Tom, it's been so long ago I don't remember. I recall maybe two years ago I rooted it? maybe even three? I know I had to use a command prompt to do it. Then I bricked the phone a little while later and had to do it again. It's been rooted since and I've just been putting different ROMs on there.What did you use to Root your phone Mike?
