Texas Regional Message Board
I'm looking at smartphones, and am leaning towards the LG G2. Anyone have experience with them?
I personally own a Samsung Galaxy S4. I'm very pleased with it, but the only other Android phone I've ever owned was an HTC, of which i do not have a glowing opinion. Couldn't tell you about any LGs, but I've heard decent things.
What about apple iPhones from gen 1's to the current generation?
The iPhones are nice, but more expensive.
I've heard about that button thing on the back, it looks cool. They've upped the system chip by placing a Snapdragon 600 version, which is good.
I don't have experience with the LG, but I do own an iPhone 5C in red, and I totally love it
I have a flip phone. It's old and cheap, and it has two features. It makes calls and receives calls. No text, no 'net, no anything else. A battery charge lasts 3 to 4 weeks. Perfect!
Merry blessed Christmas texas
**** New WA Resolution Notification *****
There is currently a new General Assembly Resolution at vote. When expressing your opinion, please note which Resolution it is for. And remember Texans, your individual vote does count!

Ok, this subject again! Guess we should have expected it since it was recently repealed. While we applaud the effort, we are getting really tired of the state of affairs in the World Assembly. Specifically, we are tired of the notion that we have to pass crappy laws to prevent worse crappy laws from being passed. This simply perpetuates a cycle of Resolution-Repeal-Replacement Resolution. Rinse-Wash-Repeat ad nauseam. We are going to wade into the deep water here and make a crazy suggestion. We do not attempt to legislate controversial issues on a global scale. How about we let national governments legislate them if they should so choose? Is that too revolutionary? It is called National Sovereignty people. If Cuba wants to block everything but state-run sites, fine. If the Ferengi want to charge 1000 gold-pressed latinum a month for internet access, fine. See where we are going with this? Just say no! NewTexas will go on record as AGAINST on this Resolution. This is only the opinion of NewTexas. We look forward to other Texans' opinions and comments on this Resolution. If good arguments to the contrary are made, we will reconsider our position.
The Texas response rate was flat on the last GA vote -- Right to Adequate Shelter -- which was defeated after gaining only 45.23% of the vote. As a reminder, all we are looking for is a simple 10% of Texans to say one way or another. We are a force for change in the WA. Every vote counts! There were 9 publicly-expressed opinions on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 1 FOR and 8 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Texans were almost unanimous.
NewTexas is open to suggestions on how we should vote on this Resolution to most accurately reflect opinion of the populace. All comments are welcome from all nations, both WA Members as well as those who are not. *As always, the WA Delegate vote will be based on publicly-expressed popular opinion.*
Please make your voice heard on the current issue either on this message board or on our offsite message board. But, by all means, please vote on the WA Page!
If you would like to take part in shaping the world you live in, please vote. Voting is a right and a privilege, please consider using it.
All WA Member nations please vote. Please make your opinions known by 11:00pm Saturday as voting ends at 11:00pm Texas Time on Saturday the 15th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 830 Votes AGAINST: 2638
PS: Remember, be sure to vote at the World Assembly too!
Hey Tex, have you been reading the rules of Acquisition?
1. Once you have their money, you never give it back.
9. Opportunity plus instinct equals profit.
At the behest of the Grand Nagus, Trecdom votes against the resolution.
