Dade's M3100 Review

Recommended Posts

Excellent review Dade, very concise. Surprised at your experience of the battery life though as I understood that in real world conditions the HTC Hermes Achilles heel is looking to be barely a days battery life with use (something I won't accept these days).

Also, there have been suggestions that the Bluetooth and Wifi are unable to peacefully coexist (ie operate at the same time). Could you look into this if you haven't already?

EDIT: Woah, Paul (MVP) has just posted that the Orange SPV M3100, like the HTC version of the Hermes, is missing the Phone Pad application! A small step backwards me thinks...

hey Porkpie. We don't mean the Phone app (that MUST still be there) but the input application called Phone Pad that is usually selectable for composing text messages, etc.

We've GOT to get this back on this device, it's the one thing that prevented the M500 from being a total ass to input things into. Plus I can text at near light speed with it. Would it be possible to install the same program that appeared on the Magician, or does the new operating system completely prevent that due to compatiblity issues?

Possibly but please remember that no discussion of copyright infringement or distribution of copyrighted software can happen on MoDaCo and you can be sure that Phone Pad is copyrighted...

Gigabyte and Eten have done the same thing. From what Gigabyte have told me, it could be to do with the costs involved in licensing T9.

How is the data speed on orange?

Awesome! I have full strength 3g at home (thank god) and I can only just tell the difference between wifi (g) and 3g browsing.

Manual sync with my exchange server over 3g is almost instantaneous.

Voice Quality is a lot better than my JAMin (M600).

Who would buy a KJam/Wizard when a Hermes is only 20% more?

16.3% actually, which is even less! :)
