I wasted 500 pounds on this phone. It sucks. The screen responsiveness is terrible and the Touch Flo is such a poor copy of the iPhone. I bought this phone because I was getting impatient with the restrictiveness of the iphone, lack of SMS forwarding and the low end camera but unfortunately once you have gotten used to the iphone interface it is hard to switch. The hype on this phone seems to be artificiallly created because the UI is just no comparison to the smoothness of the iphone. And windows Mobile despite the high res still is ugly. I have no clu why Microsoft can't come up with a cool classy interface. I am never buying either a HTC device or WM phone ever again

Anonymous, 12 Nov 2008The G-sensor detects the position and motion of your device. This helps orient the display to ... moreno thats the accelerometer. i think the g sensor just detects whether you have dropped the device and so shuts it down before it smashes into the ground!
to those who has this phone... can you verify if this phone has a tv out? touch pro has.... but the specification for this they did not include, so probably this unit has no tv out?
those who had gotten your Touch HDs, may i know how's the camera quality like? good colour & contrast? is it sharp?
And also, there's no haptic feedback, right?
Does anyone know of any links that may know if you can dual boot this phone, or if one desired maybe reflash with android???
This looks like the next handset I shall endeavour to acquire. Nice piece of kit!!!
Orange customer services were trying to tell me a £300 upgrade charge would be applied to my account, when I see certain web based 3rd party dealers giving it away on the £35 a month plans, (The same plan I'm on!).
Also it has apparently sold out on the first day at Orange uk...
...if this kind of experience continues whilst trying to upgrade to this phone and the nokia 5800 express music comes out I may reconsider my options....
Meteor, 11 Nov 2008Does anybody know what is G-sensor?G sensoer = Gyro sendor. like the iphone. tilt phone for games
An accelerometer is a device for measuring acceleration and gravity induced reaction forces.
Meteor, 11 Nov 2008Does anybody know what is G-sensor?G sensor is used to auto rotate your screen if you change the direction in which you hold your phone. Say you hold the phone in potrait view, the screen displays the contents in potrait view, if you hold it in landscape view, the screen automatically displays the contents in the landscape view
Meteor, 11 Nov 2008Does anybody know what is G-sensor?The G-sensor detects the position and motion of your device. This helps orient the display to either vertical or horizontal view based on how you are holding your device. The G-sensor can also be used in games as a type of controlling action and other applications which require motion as an input.
Meteor, 11 Nov 2008Does anybody know what is G-sensor?I think the G sensor (Or Gravity Sensor) is used to secure the device if you drop it. If or when you drop the phone, the G sensor detects that it's heading to to ground very fast and shuts itself down quickly to avoid data loss, etc. Most new laptops come with this feature and that's what I understood when I read their explanation.
Just got it yesterday..wow...i have use two htc devices before tytn II and x7500. You will be surprise how good this device is. i also own an iphone 3g, by comparison htc touch hd have the slight advantage. To sum up
+ very good 3.8 vga screen
+ Ring tone and speaker is good
+ User friendly (if you know how to use wm)
+ Low weight
+ Device is speedy enoungh
- A bit flat back cover
- Touch is not as good as iph 3g
- Typing need practice
Not sure about battery life.
Get one today if you can, you won't be disappointed.
Meteor, 11 Nov 2008Does anybody know what is G-sensor?Hi,
G-Sensor are acceleration captors placed inside the phone. This is for example used to detect the orientation of the phone allowing it to automatically set the correct orientation to display photos.
this is the big problem for people who has no idea of using a windows mobile device.... WMobile has lots of tweak and trick... so you better spend sometime and try to learn about your unit. go to a forum and ask help and info there...
example : Battery issue... change the setting of your device to "turn off device if not use for 3 mins." but its not literal, its just a standby. there you can save battery. although the unit can still recieve txts and calls and it will alarm you.
anothere thing is the application you are using... the more complex the application... example "games" the more CPU activity and the more battery is being use. like laptops.
bottom line... just learn.... Windows mobile is not just a standard Cellphone like SE, nokia, IPHONE. its totally different... lots of tweaks, tricks and lots of application(like fax, answering machine, all format video player, lexicon dictionary, word processing stuffs, medical stuffs, engineering stuffs, bible, literally like a computer thats why Pocket pc.)
