    complete noob android help

    its that time of year , the mobile upgrade ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, i will be taking delivery of 2 brand new android phones tomorrow for free ,

    1 for the mrs , n one for me

    now im on a very good tarif with 2sims on 1 bill etc , and we only use em to talk n text ,,,,, never for internet (use that at home) ,,,,,,,,,, and so when upgrade time comes around we usually just sell the phones and stick with our 15quid chuck norris jobbys .

    like i said , its a reasonable tarif ,,,,,,, 600mins on both with unlimited texts , vodafone friends n family , 500mb of internet each ( never used lol) ,,,,, with insurance and itemised billing etc ,,,,,,,32quid a month even with the occasional premium number like directory enquiries etc , my bill has never been more than 40quid ,,,,,,,, which works out at a 5ver each a week . perfect

    now im sure you guys know of better tarifs , on other networks etc, but mine is perfect for my needs , and ive been with vodafone for 11years with no issues , and perfect reception in the flat . ,,,,,,,,, not the point of the post


    so i'll be getting a samsung galaxy ace , which tracy doesn't want , so instead of selling it , giving it my sister for her birthday


    i'll be getting a huweie g510 or somethingorother


    so instead of selling it , i want to use it (not primarily as a phone) but for entertainment purposes

    specifically for 2 things ,,,,,,,,,,,

    1, ive heard there are c64 emulators available ,,,,plus other retro system emulation ,,,,,, this is a big draw for me ,,,,,,,,,, but having never had an android phone , could somebody perhaps point me in the right direction ??? ,,,,,, which one is best ? ,, which one is the least complicated ? ,,,,,, do i have to piss about unzip rom files etc?????? which is totally alien to me ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, i take it you set up a google play account using your bank details etc ????

    2, comic readers ,,,,,,,,,,, both dc and marvel have digital comic stores ,,,,,,,, but again im lost


    any and all android advice appreciated lol

    It's very user friendly Lee. Be it Apple or Android just go to the App Store and download away. No need for decompression, this isn't Fruit Emu!

    That game was fucked up. Was impossible to complete as well if I remember correctly. On the C64 version there was a cheat which enabled you to go down the toilet at the beginning, but once you did you couldn't get out and were dragged through several screens until you reached a room which had the words 'Die Mortal' in the middle. There was no escape from this room, and if you jumped off the ledge you would fall continuously through the screen and have to reload the game. Sometimes when you entered a room you would lose a life, seemingly for no reason. Great game though..
