Modern Combat 3 Free for Samsung Galaxy S II Users
For those carrying the Samsung Galaxy S II, boy are you in for a treat. For the time being, in the official Samsung App, you can download the popular first person shooter free of charge. It is unspecified as to how long Modern Combat 3 will be available for free, so for anyone who wants the game and is carrying a Galaxy S II should take advantage asap.
There have been attempts at getting it to install on other devices and it seems to be causing a lot of people problems. So if you don’t have a Galaxy S II and you’re trying to take advantage of this deal, best of luck as others aren’t having the easiest time with it.
The game is pretty heavy, at just over 1GB of space required for use, so make sure you check out your internal storage to make sure you can handle it before downloading or you’ll get an insufficient space error and it’ll crash.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
