Sony Xperia SP boasts of the following specifications:
4.6-inch 720p HD Reality Display
1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
3G and LTE capable
1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage (expandable via micro SD slot)
Pre-installed with Android 4.1
8MP rear camera capable of recording 1080p videos
Available in 3 colours: Black, White and Red
My favorite part is the he notification light, which is more than an eye candy since it can change the lighting color based on an activity such as playing music content the lighting will resemble the album artwork and pulse in beat with the music. You can also assign lighting color to your contacts so you will know instantly who is calling you without even looking at the screen. Pretty neat right?

Best Waiver wire Pick-up: Tie between Nikola Vucevic and JJ Hickson - Both of these guys have been monster off the boards and averages double-double in points and rebounds. Honorable mention: Chandler Parsons, Greivis Vasquez, Larry Sanders
Best Rookie: Damian Lillard. By a mile.
Most Disappointing Season: Ersan Ilyasova - a couple of good games here and there. But has been pretty decent in the last four weeks but his start until the middle of the season was horrendous. After a stellar season last year and signing a big contract, Ilyasova's current season is far from a succesful one. Honorable mention: Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard, Deron Williams
Overachievers: Brook Lopez, David Lee, Steph Curry - these players were under the radar due to their injury history but being healthy this season, they finally hit their stride and more.
My top 3 players for the season (and maybe until next season): 1) Lebron James 2) Kevin Durant 3) James Harden (i have 1 team with both Durant and Harden - monster kill).
Players to watch out next season): 1) Paul George 2) Larry Sanders 3) Ty Lawson 4) Kenneth Faried - these guys will be very high on my list.

Luckily, there are people from XDA Forums, who still develop custom ROMs. WTF is a ROM? If you're living under a rock (in a techy geek's perspective) One of the best things about the openness of the Android platform is that if you're unhappy with the stock OS, you can install one of many modified versions of Android (called ROMs) on your device. Thus, my outdated device is not so outdated anymore:
If you compare 2011 smartphone specifications to that of 2012, you'd be surprised to see the gap in terms of chipsets and display. But functionality is unique to every individual. If you use your mobile mostly to play games then graphics and memory specifications are gold to you. But if you're like me who just use it for calls, sms, social networking and playing music - then you don't need any cutting edge specification to get your fix.
Ever since the Nokia 5510 days, Filipinos are enamored by the use of Mobile phones. It has become almost a necessity for any individual. There's also comes the unecessary pressure of trying to keep up with the latest releases if you're that type of person. But to me, I don't feel like I need to invest that amount of money to something that will depreciate in value in a matter of months. I'd rather put my money into traveling - invest in experiences... they last a lot longer. Futureproofed.
