I will buy this phone after 1 week, but I dont know if I will love it, plz anybody tell me if it has any problems other than the battery. thx all...
plz help me! I have a question and it is: does this phone have a keybord??? plz answer back.. thx...
its a great device its ok yes the batterie does not serve you for a long but this is normal comparing to it features and speed,
comon guys its a full PC in your pocket as simply as it is, be nice with and deal with your device as you're dealing with your "fiance" and you'll be fine just be nice with it.
however, this huge processing power consumes batteries quickly, so I won't be surprised if this device cannot complete the day without recharging.
More on battery life: I seem to get more battery life when network setting on phone is GSM. Appears to be 3G that runs the battery down. One problem, signal on GSM is terrible. Often there is no signal where my previous PDA would have no problem. Of course, the selling point for this PDA is 3G data service, but with current battery life this unusable. Also switching networks appears simple, but often doesn't work.
Is the paint used in it the same as the other imates/htcs that easily flakes off?
hey........ Good phone but one big problem.. battery time is more than worse... i hate its battery... over all phone features, functions are good.. camera is not as gaood as it should be.. i think i wasted money on buying this stupid phone..
Moral: Dont buy this phone.. if wana buy this then better buy 2 extra battery with this stupid expensive thing..
This would be a great phone/PDA but for a couple of drawbacks. When the battery is flat it won't charge from the USB port. Just hangs. Battery life is terrible. My new 8150 gets about 30hrs from a full charge with no activity on the phone whatsoever. Moderate activity, brings this down to under 20 hours. For international flights this means fully charged in Sydney and your phone won't work when you get to London. Not much point in a phone that will stream internet video, but needs recharging every few hours.
send the phone back to those guys again and ask for a refund... or maybe i can help u to fix it up...
i even have the same new pcs... working condition.. u want to have a look at it?

I bought my 8150 from Jacky's in Dubai in Jan 08 shipped to Kenya and it was DOA. I tried a friend's battery and it worked. I called and emailed the shop and they insisted I ship back the unit. They shipped it back claiming they had fixed "the software problem" but I still could not start up the unit. Tried again with the friend's batt and it worked. The shop insisted that I ship it back again and this time they installed a new batt. The phone worked fine for a day until I tried to use the camera. It hung on the camera icon - never started. Soft and hard resets just give the blue boot up scren and it hungs there. It cant shut down with the button and I have to remove the batt. Feel like hitting the phone against a wall and get the satisfaction - I bought the phone in Jan and I have never used it!!

Anyone want to see a beautiful 3d game on the WM6 ? Full HW acceleration ?
What game am I talking about ? It's about the Flame's original games: Siege and Call of Duty 2
The solution ... read and discuss here:
guys i'm using this Imate 8150 since i got it (3 month back) and i'm ok with the result, don't forget that you're having a full PC in a small device, sure we're gonna face some problems but not to compare by all other benefits, i just like it.
Hi, but i've read that this device comes with GeForce 5500 Graphics accelerator..
i guess the performance of this device is great in processing power(520 MHz) and gaming..
however, this huge processing power consumes batteries quickly, so i won't be surprised if this device cannot complete a day without recharging!
Ok...I think its now time to decide on what to buy. I read most of the comments here and appears to me nobody is satisfied with this phone. You cant expect much from a Chinese Techfaith device , rebranded here as Imate 8150. I got to compare this phone with the HTC Tytn II which are almost in the same price range(Tytn 2 is cheaper)in Iran. They are just not comparable. The first time I turned this device on, it stopped responding. I managed to get it running after unplugging the battery and reinstalling again . Thats my first impression. The diplay is not as bright as the Tytn. Thats the second impression. I decided to forget about my third and fourth impression and go for the TYTN 2. I have that now and its an amazing piece of machinery. Sorry Imate, you really blew it this time.
