How to use Flash on Android

I have been looking for the best way to use a browser that supports flash on android for a long time. I've always used the stock browser and chrome. I tried Puffin as well which is the best browser in a range of benchmarks (look for a post comparing android browsers on my blog) but it is only the best for american users. Keeps telling me that I can't watch BBC iPlayer programmes, for example, because Puffin's servers are in America.

Then came the Dolphin browser. The bonus is that it's visibly fast. I thought I was connected to a 4g network. See how this browser can let you use Flash even if you are on jelly bean.

Galaxy Tab 3 8.0" 3/4g Quick Review after a week's use

So last week I decided to sell my galaxy s4 and to give my galaxy tab 10.1 to my father in law. Got £265 for my s4 on eBay by the way. I got thinking about which device could handle being both a tablet and a phone.

The galaxy tab 3 was top of my list. I chose the 8" because it's light and has the best camera of the tab 3s. Off I went to O2 Crawley were 3 staff laughed at me when I said I wanted the tablet to also use as a phone. They said the 3 or 4g only referred to data not gsm support. Little did they know that I always do my homework and know my Samsung gadgets. I bought it for £350 and put my O2 card in and that was it, a very functional big phone. I did let O2 know to inform their staff about the gadget's capability.

First thing I noticed was battery drain and Google+ was responsible for over 40%. This was with instant upload off. I uninstalled and all was restored. Before this I had 11 hours usage and after this I now have just over 24 hours with WiFi constantly on.

There was a lot of lag on the stock keyboard so I replaced it with Google's keyboard. Flows like butter.

The camera is awesome but it's disappointing that there is no flash. Luckily,  I don't use the camera flash.

In currently exploring memory card issues but nothing major. Will keep you updated.
