Comment Steady progress and under the hood improvements (Score 2) 288

4.3 brought major changes in the vt-x code for stability and performance improvements.

You should look at the change log and source code commits.

It wouldn't surprise me if 4.4 gets released soon with a new batch of improvements. 4.3 will then get put into maintenance mode and 4.4 because "unstable". I normally don't deploy the current branch in production for several releases as they fix the issues.

Project development is far from a standstill. I don't need any more flashly features. I hope they continue to focus on stability and performance issues.

Comment Samsung Galaxy S5 glass quality is awful (Score 1) 203

I dropped my Galaxy S5 out of my hand when walking and it completely smashed the glass. I am shocked how fragile the new phone was compared to my older Nexus S. I am on the hook for a $250+ bill to get it repaired.

I have no clue how you can engineer a mobile phone which can't withstand a drop from that distance. I will never buy another Samsung product again.
