When i play some game like TombRaider in X800 i find some screen problems... When i press onscreen buttons in that game the the screen just shakes like it's working slower..in other phones like HTC i don't find that problem. Can anybody help me finding out the solution plz..
Does anybody know whether X800 has a complete switch off button or ways? I know if u press switch off button device screen is off... But i need to switch it off completely without removing battery... Plz
Bought this phone kept it for a day and returned it a day letter. Too slow and freezes, reminds me of imate phones. Anyone reading this please tell me why would anyone buy this phone when you have the option of the htc cruise.
it seems the joystick that sticks out is a failure. a similar feature to the newer phones would have been more appropriate, and the lack of comment on battery life is a drawback, indicating a short battery life. otherwise, i would have bought this phone.
I own 5 PPC's including this one. This is the slowest one that I have. Even slower from a 4 years old I-mate.
It cannot open more than 2 applications and it is very often needs a hard reset.
Sound quality is poor.
Recmmended only for guys with strong nerves...
This is my 3rd PPC phone that i've owned and a first for the 3G/HSDPA handset. On first look, i quite like the look of it. I wouldnt say its ugly at all. A few people have said that its Slow yes indeed that its slow but your not on it like a computer. I've managed to delete pretty much all the Eten Software that came with the phone which made it a little bit faster. I just left the main ones such as Video Call, etc, etc. My conclusion, i quite like it especially the GPS (I use it with TomTom 6) Nice design, and looks to be quite solid.
As for the mp3 sms notification, Nope it cant be done. Only Supported files are WMA/WAV and more. Just copy the clip to the Windows folder on the Unit, Then select the tone via sounds/notification.
I was wondering if anyone can tell me if you can change the message tone? I know you can change the ringtone to an mp3, but can you change the message tone to an mp3?
The I-mate is a piece of brick!!! 18mm thick only 2.8 inch screen and 3MP camera - huge with outdated features - are you kidding?
There are at least 5 phones better and smaller - but I guess you work for.....
If u all are so pissed up, maybe u should sell u're units and wait for the i-mate 9502. I has everithing, VGA, qwerty, 128 ram, good cpu, etc...
Too slow, too buggy -
- I really think ETEN can´t fix all problems with the next version (X900?)
Obviously, the X800 is totally f... up unit.
It had great potentials but as time went by ETEN failed to address the problems and the meantime iphone, samsung, etc came out or just about to come out with WORKING units.
it is a shame.
This is some dude on YouTube showing you how the phone works and what it comes with:
stay the hell away from this phone!
it doesn't do hsdpa 850/1900 and e-ten doesn't give a damn! you will only get crappy umts speed on 850/1900 band even the phone "says" it is accessing hsdpa!!!
stay the hell away from this!!!
Hya, actually i m searching to buy a pda with good specs like including GPS, windows Professional 6,and durable one with good ROM,RAM n processor.I was thinking in between HTC TYTN II or ETEN glofish X800, a bit confused now,can anyone guide me which one is better..or if anyone can tell me any better deal than these two...i ll be really thankful...
Hi , I got an X800 Eten just second week of january 2008, I am not usre if I need to update the ROM or not, could some one help me to find it out?, thanks Adolfo.
Its my 3 post here.I have a X800.
As i already told the X800 speed somethimes is slow and other times is very good. I dont know ho to blame, if the ETEN teck or Bill Gates. Even when i shut down the programs it continues to be slow. The only thim that cures that is to do a reset on the phone (the litle button on the left).
Somethimes when iam in a phone call the speaker sound really messy, and other times is ok, werd. And the camera is to forget. I tryed to take some pictures with it at this cristmas and it was a big shi****.
I tryed to upgrade the software from eten site, but when i register me on the site i made a mistake and register the x800 to be on portuguese software. But it is on english. For that reason i cant do the download of the software upgrade.
I have email eten for that. And received 2 responses form a chinese guy. I know my english is bad, but that guy is a dum ***. So the support suck as hell.
Hope i help you.
To answer the question of "Can I turn off the phone without removing the battery?"
Yes and No :)
Yes, you can RESTART it by pushing the reset button on the left side of the phone. It is under the voice command button. You can only reach it with your styles.
NO, you cannot SHUTDOWN the phone without removing the battery, but instead you can turn off GSM/WIFI/BT from your wireless manager, which is as good as having the phone shutoff.
I found this to be a good feature since I can stop all incoming calls and prety much put the phone offline while still being able to use the windows applications.
The phone is good and it provides features that do not exist in other phones (at once). For the slowness, this usually a memory issue. he application do not get shutdown when you hit the x button. This is an intentional feature to allow you browsing and opening multiple application. when you feel the phone is slow, hit the RAM icon at the bottom and it will give you a list of all the open applications, close the ones you don't need. I have had the phone for a couple of months now and it works great. Yes it is lower performance level than some other phones, but it does provide so much more the other phones.
I got a X800 for a few days.
It was not able to read SDHC but after I download the update OS X800_CHT_A42_040_0402 from www.eten.com.tw (for registered user), my 4GB SDHC is OK.
But the speed/response is slow sometimes, especially when I use GPS and IE and need reboot, but this take long time to restart from soft reset.
Hope someone share any way to improve the speed.
