G1 or Pulse Mini (Newbie Question!)

15 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi All,

I wonder if anyone can help me, I dont have a Android phone as yet and not able to get a contract as such but I do have been offered a G1 for £100. I was looking to get the pulse mini before I was offered the G1...

my question is what would you say is a better phone to have, the G1 or pulse mini? I want the phone to do all the typical andriod stuff (inc the cool star/space map or whatever the app is called, lol).

anyway hope someone can point me into the right direction, thanks in advance.

If your looking at going Android now, you need to be looking for a device that was released this year, the Pulse & Pulse Mini will be left with Android 2.1, the G1 will be left with android 1.6 (This isn't including Custom Rom's)

Even the Hero is only getting 2.1, and all the good new stuff isn't really arriving until 2.2, save a little more and go for a Nexus One or newer if you can.

Hmmmm, if you have been keeping up with Cyanogens forum the G1 is able to run 2.1.....

http://forum.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?/to...-v507-05252010/

Mine is as we speak, also the team there are currently pulling apart the sdk and reckon that they can get 2.2(Froyo) running on the G1 as well.......

I also have a T-mobile pulse and must say that I am now getting quite frustrated with the inability to upgrade this phone to even 2.1. Bigbearmdc and Paul have done sterling work in getting a beta rom working but it is to unstable to be used in my work phone....

I did say "isn't including Custom Rom's",

Seriously though, the CPU in the G1, Pulse, Hero etc just isn't up to what 2.2 will fully need.

The hero even over clocked running 2.1 can't handle the Pre-Release Adobe Air for android (Pre-release does run on 2.1)

Well its going to be the G1 and I will have it tomorrow, the reason for this simply due to its not costing me anything, its being given to me! So as a starting point into driod not too bad, I understand the stock 1.6.....but then again, my mate picked up a pulse mini and i thought it was crap...sure it had some nice touches but it screamed "cheap" and slow to just do day to day stuff....lag on texting was really bad.

ok the main reason i rooted cuz of all the different roms and cool features each different rom brings., another reason is to show off., i mean how many ppl do u kno in ur school or friends tht have a g1 and is rooted? but when they sew urs they get really amazed hahaha cuz tht happen to me hahah ;]., also u can have pre-released updates like e.g the g1 only is up to 1.6 on normal stock version but wit root its already on 2.2., which is freaking awesome., abd theres many more things about it you just have to explore it all once u root it ;]., hope this answers ur question in a way....and did u root ur g1?
