Think I'll probably cave when HTCs next batch of phones are released. Would really like a Desire or Legend, but can't afford it now and my N82 is still a tad too fresh (the browser's s*** though, main reason I want a new phone tbh) to really needing to be substituted.


The Desire is good though... :smug:


It's wonderful when you get used to it.
After the 1st day with mine I was all for sending it back. Didn't have this, couldn't figure out that, couldn't get to grips with this, didn't like that being there, etc etc. But because you can personalize it so much, you can pretty much have it how you like it.

Just got Gameboid Lite and have got Pokemon Red on the go. If you get a GBA bios file and put it on your memory card you can easily find roms for the old GBA games. Immense. They take up hardly any space as well.

I've got a good guide on how to get it going if anyone wants it. PM meh.

Got myself a HTC Desire - had it for a few days now - I do like it though a couple of downsides for me, the battery does die a bit quickly (though im aware that is the case with most smartphones) and the internal memory, it is only 128MB and unless im mistaken apps can only be installed onto the internal memory and not the Micro SD

I dont understand why some iphone fanboys were criticising the Android Market for - there are plenty of apps on there

You can make massive differences to the battery life by turning off a lot of the things that are autosyncing - like Facebook, Twitter, the Weather, mail etc.  I mean I don't need to be insta-notified every time some t*** sends me a spam email so I have all that auto stuff turned off, and just refresh when I want to check my mail.

Try Y5 as well - turns off wireless when you aren't in range of a known wireless network (i.e. one you've connected to previously).  And when the update to 2.2 hits (coming soon), you'll be able to save apps to the SD card.

Do they give any form of notice as to when you're gonna get these updates? It's really f***ing annoying waiting for my girlfriend's phone to update. I'm sure I told her to get ready for an update about 2 months ago.

Set your app killer to half an hour, seems to help quite a bit.

I ordered two fake HTC Hero batteries off eBay, along with a charger that can charge both the battery in the phone and one of the other batteries at the same time, £11 the lot including delivery from China.  Charge my phone every night and just carry a spare in the watch pocket of my jeans, or if I know I'm going to be out all day using the GPS or whatever a lot I'll slip one in my wallet as well.

Yup, I just did the same for my old G1, even though I'm due an upgrade any day now...I'm going to just get a new battery plus an emergency battery pack and hope that holds out as a fix for a few weeks.

My battery life was terrible for about 10 days, but then vastly improved. After fiddling with the apps and stuff it was even better. Only runs down now when I'm f***ing about on the net or on games and stuff...

It's generally fine for a day at work. If I do anything after work without charging it first then I have to start rationing.

I think 2.2 has just been released for Nexus N1. Companies like HTC and Sony Ericsson run their own specialised versions of Android, which requires them to apply their own stuff to 2.2 before they can release it on their respective phones which is why it takes a bit longer.

Anyone using swype as a keyboard?  Go to beta.swype.com to download and install the beta.  Takes a tiny bit of getting used to, but once you have it's significantly quicker than using the usual method for typing.

Have a look at the link for the demonstration video, and if you want it, get on it quick cos they'll be closing the public beta again shortly.

It's really confusing at first, I think I was going too fast too soon, I ended up forgetting where the keys were.

Just having a play, seems alright. I have a HTC Hero, it's less annoying when you turn off vibrating on entering a word. Gonna persist with it for a bit I think.

I had problems with Swype and display problems, but downloaded Shapewriter instead. 

Does exactly the same :thup:

Swedish version too!

I tried ShapeWriter for a while but ended up deleting it.  The functionality on Swype is a lot better imo.  ShapeWriter was alright though.
