Paul,

Is the new Sense UI that much different?

I am a GUI freak and have seen the new X10 interface which looks nice. I had originally fallen in love with Sense UI (mainly due to the weather on the standby screen)

I want an interface which will blow people away. I am so shallow.

Oh and the 1GB cpu - is it that fast during day to day use?


Thanks in advance.


Cheers,

GG

It's not THAT different from Touchflo3D of old really, it's just a little bit deeper integrated I guess.

1GHz, yes, it's fast!

Can you try it with some high bit rate AVi files? Maybe even a 720P file, just to see how near (or far) it is from smooth.

- Battery life, too early to say
- On screen keyboard is great, yeah!
- There is NO camera lag at all, not a moment
- Feels very fast indeed
- Unknown, the rumours say yes, but I don't know
- Very different devices! WM or Android? Big device or small device? Each has their benefits...

P



awesome thanks!! can't wait to get my hands on the handset. Silly last one - is the animated weather wall paper as cool as it looks and does it slow down the device when running?

Oh and last one - when you dowonload/instal apps does it save to the sd card?? or will we need to get an aps2sd type program?

thanks!!

Mmmm, if you were to watch a movie or cartoon... you'd choose the bigger screen or the smaller screen with better colors? :D

Can you run a test for me at some stage. Set up a few favorites in people, sync with myphone, hardreset and sync with myphone again. On the Leo based ROMs I've tried on my TD2 this hasn't exactly been perfect. Sometimes on the second sync it will remember who the favorites were but forget the default numbers and put them back in an order decided by itself. On other builds it completely forgets who the favorites were and then has lots of problems when you go to set them up again. It would be nice to see how the new messaging app deals with a large SMS database too, as that has been very flaky on the custom ROMs.

- there was lots of discussion about how much RAM is actually available - what does it say for "free memory" when it has just been turned on?

- does it feel like it will snap if you put it in your pocket and sat down! (esp your back pocket! :D )

The RAM size is 448MB, will have a look at how much is free.

It doesn't feel that snappable, heh!

What is the GPS like?
Is it erratic like on the Vario 3? Where sometimes it gets a signal straight away and some times not at all?
Do TomTom, Co-Pilot and CamerAware run well on the HD2?

What is sound quality like when using the 3.5mm jack?

Slightly off topic...
Are there plans/rumours of a similar device to the HD2 but with a touch keyboard?

I've only tested the GPS briefly with CamerAware and it's fine. CamerAware also runs fine, especially with the 6.5 optimised buidl coming shortly.

I'll test the headset for you shortly.

- No DivX support out of the box
- It's a slightly shinier 6.1. More significant are the HTC UI enhancements.
- The app market is a bit thin on content atm.
- Yes, it includes a copilot trial.
- Will test MP3 playback.
- Speakerphone is pretty loud!
- It records VGA video.
- Camera seems fairly good with and without flash, will take some test shots.
- No global search out of the box.
- I've not used a 3GS.
- If required! :D
