P1n3apqlExpr3ss: Homescreen image is static...? Where's the setting that I'm (hopefully) missing


In Apex or Nova launchers?

Seriously though I haven't found an option either...

Damn rang up JB again and they say they won't price match Noel Leeming as they only have 3 in stock and are selling them fast as it is (at $944).

Noel will be my best bet I think.

Thanks jeffnz for the pic of your receipt though. I might try to go into JB tomorrow morning to see if they can match it but won't have my hopes up.

they do, wait ont he main page, one will pop up that says downt eh bottom off selected brands "20% off samsung etc



Oh I see now. But is this enough? Would they not want to see a product page with a price as well?

Also have the following as proof. Wonder if it will be enough.

Leemings St Lukes ran out earlier apparently didn't have many in initial stock.

Good luck as I was reading that apparently in the UK the scarcity pushed prices up by 50 pounds

I had gotten my brothers staff pricing originally, he then rang me on thursday and told me that he was crediting and recharging my card cause there was the 20% off samsung queen birthday sale, so its definatley legit folks, even if they say no, it is, or else they will have fair trading act breaches to worry about...

Well to be fair motorwayne, I don't think it's that impressive honestly. I am not sure why everyone is raving about battery on the S3, my S2 gives me 2 days *easily*, if the S3 doesn't I'll be pretty disappointed.

With respect I would have to disagree. Apps, usage patterns etc can lead to very different outcomes. I have the same apps loaded up and have been using my new phone as I used my S2 and the difference is night and day. First charge netted me 15:52hrs and screen on time of 4:03hrs compared to my S2's 12hrs and 2:30hrs.

I only just realised that I forgot to turn off that battery hungry hourly update on Facebook so I imagine I will easily eclipse todays achievement.

That to me is as good as an apples for apple's comparison and by my calculations the S3 anililates the S2 for battery life
