smp preemptive

itpookie

My smart phone keeps giving me trouble.  I've been assured it is not refurbished; yet the date on the smp preemptive is 5 months before I got the phone.   Such a long time lag between the date on the smp preemptive and the date I bought the phone makes me wonder.   What do you think?  thank you!

I'd try to return it or exchange it. Sounds like you got a lemon.

What I would like to know is how you are finding SMP PREEMPT? Are you using terminal emulator to access Linux command line shell, or is this displayed on the version of Android your phone is running (you didn't mention Android, but it must be)? SMP PREEMPT means that the Linux kernel version on your device will support multiple processor cores, but I'm not sure what the date indicates. I suppose it could mean the date of the original kernel build, or the date that device was first "brought to life" but I'm not certain which. Assuming that it specific to that device, 5 months isn't really all THAT long. Keep in mind, these things are literally shipped in containers from Asia, and before that they have to get from the factory to the port. Once in the US, they have to make it from the port to the distribution point, then go out to retailers, then make it from the retailers storage to shelf, then from the shelf into the consumer's hands. I could see that taking 5 months, especially if the model wasn't selling that quickly, or it ended up on a retail shelf that didn't move a lot of product.

I so hope you see this, Stilladotcommer.  

 

After being fixed at Samsung, my android phone couldn't be turned on.  there is a problem.  again!!!

 

Galaxy Nexus.   third time broken since beginning of Dec!

 

So was going thru the update and status section and found the info on the kernel.  The person from sprint didn't understand what it was...if you say that that could be a date stamp during the creation of the phone...that's cool.  I was just thinking that the phone crashed so many times, that it might be refurbished rather than new...

 

Thanks so much for your feedback!
