Weird on phone

Post by lad_from_leeds » Sun Apr 27, 2014 8:20 pm

No probs using on iPad or laptop but when posting on my phone (Samsung galaxy) every single word I enter in the subject is repeated and has to be deleted. Doesn't happen on any other site or in the main body of posts or pms. Is this just my phone being daft or something others have come across?

Give your phone a rinse under the cold tap, then let it soak for 5 to 10 mins in lukewarm water. That will sort it.

One way or another....

I use a Samsung Galaxy and do not have that problem.

I use a Note 2
No such problem.
The autofill fills in wrongly at times. That's all.

I don't particularly like it though.
As for iPhone ( I got my daughter one but just for street cred at school) personally I wouldn't even get an iTooth brush.
Can't stand Apple.

I am due an upgrade, but there really isn't anything out there yet that takes my fancy.

Has anyone seen the Galaxy Mega? Crazy huge thing :lol:

Worked fine today, seems to be just in landscape... Weird.

Dr Day... Watched gadget show with the new phablets... Too big to be a phone, too small for a tablet. Clearly a must have!

Landscape does do some odd things. Move in front of the display and it'll take you right back to the top of the page. I think it's that, that is one of the most annoying aspects of the Note.

Dr Day's just getting the ridiculously big phones due to denial about being old ... sorry ... presbyopic. Here's his phone:
