Get the iPhone for you, the Note for your son, and sweet talk him to letting you use it while he plays video games.
My kids are IPHONE lover all the way.
It would not the same when my text number is on samsung while i use my kids IPHONE.. nah
thank you for your ideas.
But she could just as easy use Skype between Android and iPhone.
...and google hangouts works for both androids and apple.
Fring video is poor quality.
Tango video is fair quality.
Each app has it's own settings and it depends on your internet connection. You can't judge them based on an article when you have a different internet.
I think you didn't edit your skype settings to be optimized for balanced / quality, but performance.
Google hangouts does a good job, and there are a few hundreds video apps on Android..
Like I said, I tried almost all of app and Facetime is way better thsn Skype, hangouts, etc. at exactly same internet connection.
Just wonder, Do you know how to use ASL?
I am sure a few hundreds video apps are junk too due no better reviews.
