Definition : 70%
Trubass lvl : 70%
TruBass Speaker : 250Hz
Juz played less than 24hrs. :D
WooHoo!... I juz got mine yesterday!
Yeah. Its great!. When is wm6 upgrade coming?
Other than the dedicated graphics, this thing has usb2.0 and usb OTG. Can plug in my 4gb thumbdrive and transfer files straight. The screen is pretty, but the SRS WoW is wow. Bass, treble controllable with surround. The speakers are really not bad...
Fast too. Its not as big as what ppl say is itand is damn light even with the battery inside.
Really happy with it.
Quick, I want my WM6.
Hello, i m from INDIA

when i answer or make a call, sometimes i cannot disconnect. i have to switch off the phone and re-start it !!!
so can any 1 help me with this ??
hey guys, let me know what you think... i've been thinking, because of the usb on the go feature, isnt it possible to get a virus on the flame? if so, is there an antivirus?
hi, anyone can tell me, how to make a better sound setting on WOW SRS for talking on phone. pls anyone help!!!!!!
Please could you answer some questions for me some people are saying that sandisk 2gb micro cards dont work if so what makes do works + power consumption has been said to be very high please could you kindly say what consumption is like in detail and how good is bluetooth on this device..
Hi.. I just want to know is this phone has GPS? I am looking for a PDA with faster processor and come with feature of GPS, Wifi, and 3G.
Hi Jim, Thanks for all your posts, really helpful ones..:)
I have a few qs nd need some real answers since u seem an old-experienced o2 PPC user and as i got really confused nd bored from reading others' complaints nd bogus reviews of o2 devices, to extent i thought of not buying one. But after i've read ur posts, it got me confident nd made me somehow very eager to buy one as soon as it get released in the UK market.
Which is better, the o2 xda zinc or o2 xda trion? and their performance comparing to other o2 xda devices. Heard they hang a lot, is it true? Is it cuz its running on windows mobile 5.0? Or its the same slow down with the windows mobile 6.0? What about the keyboard stability? Any issues?
And as i'm planning to buy one of those cutting-edge innovative devices, mainly either the o2 xda flame or the o2 xda atom. So which one do u recommend most? Thanks.
hey jim, thanks for all your help, i finally buckled and got my unit haha thanks for the advice, the unit is as close to perfect as anything!!
Hack is go to Local Machine /System/GDI/Glyphcache
change decimal value to say 16384 or 32768 etc
The Flame is slightly shorter and thinner than the XDA2 but a tad wider. The case would probably fit if it has some slack in its width.
SDHC cards do not work, so you are limited to standard 2GB micro plus the internal 2GB. However since you can use USB flash drives and hard drives, it is not a big deal. I have run movies off a USB stick for example.
Thanks again for all your help really appreciate your comments please can you tell where to get cache hack...
Im interest would a XDA IIs case fit Flame or is Flame bigger.
what 2.5mm to 3.5mm adaptor are you using + have you tested a 4 gb micro card yet.
I hope to have my beast in about 2 weeks will have more questions later i really appreciate your help
I have used a XDA2 for years and have hundreds of games and applications on it. Problem is I have not had time to start testing all these things out, my workload has been horrible lately.
I will say that videos ran suberbly - avi divx ones I transfered from my Creative Vision W device. I used Core Player. I did increase the cache though right from the start since I heard others had stuttering video. This is a hack I has on my XDA2 so I just automatically copied it over. I have not encountered any stuttering at all.
The screen looks wonderful. I still have my XDA2 so I can compare the two screens side by side. The XDA2 looks pitiful in comparison. When you see the VGA graphics, you say to yourself "Oh yeah, baby" and wonder why you stuck with QVGA for so long.
The screen is not bright - it is however the same as what most people would be accustomed to if you reduced the brightness on battery settings on previous units which is what I did with the XDA2 so I personally am happy with it. I know there are gamma settings in the registry I can try adjusting to get it brighter if I wanted to, except I don't because the battery drain is already high.
As for the Kaiser, well I am biased. I don't care for its advantages like the keyboard which I hate because I can type so much faster and easier on screen. Also the GPS is something I would never use myself.
At the end of the day you interface with the screen. Do you want a powerful PPC sitting behind a 2.8inch QVGA or do you want a powerful PPC sitting behind a 3.6inch VGA screen with a GPU and surround sound?
Sorry to all HTC fanboys but the Flame just blows away the Kaiser as a traditional PPC never mind the versatility offered by VGA out and USB OTG. It is not a contest.
If you are an old time PPC nut then go with your instincts, you know the Flame specs will remain cutting edge technology for some time to come.
Also the Flame looks much cooler in reality than what you see in the pics. Its shape makes the screen like gigantic and is much better than the XDA2 shape. When I show it off, everyone wants one, they think it is the coolest thing they have seen. You have the Aston Martin, they have the Ford Focus. Just smile and pity them :)
Have being using it since May 15. Didnt hang at all and very seldom reset. But somethings i noticed. Which i believe it can be improve.
The previous Notification Queue. This pproblem exist on previous PDA as well, which too much queue will eventually slow down the phone.
2nd is kind of anoying,and need to be fix as fast. If who ever use Core Player, when you play a video, you will know it will not have any display. You will need to go and set to other video playback. ie; GDI/Raw FrameBuffer. This unit comes with GPU which able to use DirectDraw.. BUT, this device dont comes with the driver! that is why directDraw cannot be use at all at this moment.
Still a great phone!
I wan to buy this solid phone.
Any problem with this phone? Any hang issue? Thanks.
thankyou so much for your answers much appreciated.
Can you answer me so more questions if im going to spend nearly 700 uk pounds on this machine its got to be all that.
I am away large amount of time from home so this machine has got to be very powerful i am veteran of 20 years when it comes to PPC, and i am currently looking for a long term machine.
OK video play back i guess most people are using tcpmp ,have you tested a xvid/divx movie what bit rate have you used also have you or any one tested a wmv9 or h.264 movie what results have you got.
Have you also used hacks to increase speed of machine from 520mhz to say 640mhz this is possible.
When playing games what results have you had - how does Nvidia goforce make gaming faster..now some are saying that axim 51v games work on this machine?
Does this machine have a turbo mode for slowing down machine
Brightness of this machine how bright is it.
Big question....how would rate this machine up agaisnt say HTC Kaiser.
if people could club together to answer these questions it would help many people.
End of the day guys theres no PPC like this at the moment...watching movies on this machine should be cinematic with wmv9 for visuals and SRS for the sound if only i could have this machine now i would show you all what this machine can do.
thanks again guys
My gf has a Stealth, she thought she could text on it then to find out it was not that easy. Anyway the Flame is miles faster than the Stealth and does not slow down when there are multiple programs running nor do you have to wait several seconds for the camera to save pictures etc. I don't like the Stealth, it was a good idea that was not designed properly, you need to upgrade before the resale value of the Stealth plummets.
The screen is exceptionally clear and sharp.
SRS does five you a surround sound experience over the headphones
No problems with stability
Camera is probably the best I have seen, very sharp except for grainy night shots as usual.
Hi Guys i live in the Uk i have some questions as im interested in this device.
Some say screen is fuzzy is this true?
How does SRS sound on headphones this is meant to give a simulated 5.1 experience
How does voice call sound.
Bluetooth is this good?
any issues with stability..
Camera shots taken how good are they for a 2mpx camera.
