Does anybody know of any Bluetooth/wireless controllers I can use so I can play games on my phone while it is connected to my TV? I searched Trade Me for "Android Controller" and dint find anything. Im not sure how much they would cost, but im guessing I could pick a good quality one up for $50?

I prefer to buy it off Trade Me, rather than an overseas website, but im open to all links.

Thanks :)

There are several options, but you have to go for a wireless one if you're wanting to use it while connected to TV (unless you're using the Allshare Cast Dongle, but I'm thinking you're probably on an MHL connection?).

For PS3 controller you'll need Root, but it is the best current option because of touch emulation in the Sixaxis Controller app (USB/BT Joystick Centre has a Root-required plug-in for touch emulation but it's extremely user-unfriendly compared to the Sixaxis option). If you look at my channel you'll see a demo and brief guide for setting up a PS3 controller for gaming on TV.

If you don't want to get a PS3 controller, or don't want to Root, then there are others like the Phonejoy/Wii Classic and Datel Retro Wireless controllers/iControlPad (just note for the Classic Wii controller you have to plug it into a regular WiiMote).

There are other options on the way too, ones with touch emulation that do not require Root - a Nyko controller that is due for October last I checked, and the iControlPad2 which is meant to ship in November - you can purchase it now as part of their Kickstarter campaign. It's software is going to be open source, so some cool potential there.

Hi,
Im looking at S3 LTE version "GT-I9305" which is quad core and comes with 2GB of RAM.
Apparently it has been released in Australia and Korea.
I guess the question one asks here is (and this might be early to tell) which of the 4g spectrum's will be used in NZ?

Does anybody know of any 4G phones being sold by Telecom/Vodafone so we know which 4G band to opt for?

Two words:
Stop dreaming.

NZ is too small and the only place you can get it is from PI.

You either missed my point or you have no idea what i am talking about. Of course it will be an international version and if it is going to be around the same price as the S3's getting sold here in Vodafone\Telecom so you will be stupid not to consider it.

The 2GB RAM upgrade alone is worth it let alone the future proofing of the 4G.
After doing some reading Telecom and Vodafone will be doing 4G trials on the 1800 spectrum and the 2600 spectrum.

Telecom announced the 4G home trials will kick start before end of this year.

I recently installed AMOLED display clock on my GS3, but now wondering if it is going to damage the screen as it keeps a few pixels ON forever. Anyone thought about it? Cheers

Every so often I use google navigation, the other day I fired it up, and for some reason I can not find a way to make the view change from the following below to the way it has always looked for me, the view as if you are following the lil blue triangle down the road.
Any ideas?

Is it me or there still isn't any update for this Vodafone S3?
Check here and found that Samsung just recently pushed many LH1 OTA to elsewhere. But where is NZ Vodafone? Frack! I need new update to fix this annoying battery drain bug and other bugs.
