rattler, 27 Sep 2012this is a reply to both of your posts. firstly I want to ask you that do you want to buy an An... morethanks for your reply , its good having a discussion with you.
1) yes internal memory is a problem with 90 mb only. but hey guess what, you can move 95 % of the apps to the sd card. you can even move facebook , whatapp messenger easily. only the app with widgets and pre installed apps like gmail cant be moved. with this method , check this thread and this method works without rooting. it is only a bit extra work of moving apps thats it. read the thread
and once you root it you know everything can be done but lets talk about non rooted phones , since i dont like voiding my warranty.
2) no , i dont want a phone necessarily for gaming. just basic games would do fine like temple run and 1 or 2 hd games would do fine. not much of a gamer.
what my requirements are , it should have a awesome display wih 3.2 and awesome music quality. i hate pixelation . the first time i heard about galaxy y it was mind blowing at that price. but seriously when i looked at the display i felt like trashing the phone. every text looked pixelated . compromising on screen for performance is a deal breaker for me. i can bet samsung will not release hvga on a 3 inch screen .
also i was not talking about shooter game . i was talking about temple run. it was running with little hiccups , not the touch screen part . the touch screen was fine. the gpu is weak and had problems handling temple run .
regarding os . i dont like ics , i like jb or gb. because ics lags . yes that is the main advantage that chat/music has it has jb. but then gb on explorer runs very smooth. and it already has cynagoenmod 9.1 100 % working rom. jb is under development right now. so after 1 year i can install jb till then i can enjoy sense 3.5 on gb. and in terms of look there is no difference in ics or jb. since oem skins the os like sense , touchwiz etc. jb is awesome .
there are only 3 cons of htc explorer.
1) internal memory ( already told you the workaround )
2) battery 1230 mah but chat has 1200 mah , not sure what galaxy music will have
3) no compass sensor. tipo also does not have that.
disadvantahes of music ,chat
1)qvga resolution .( deal breaker for me )
2) a little bit smaller screen .
also there is not much of a differnce in cpu between 2 . as you can see the msmm7225a is a advanced chip , it actually says coretx a5 which you might think is weaker , but in reality they perform better than cortex a8 but behind cortex a9 . this is due to architecture advancement done by qualcomm. so think of it as cortex A 8.5 . it reflects in scores also. antutu for tipo is 2700 while chat has 3300. chat has better cpu no dout but the difference is quite small

RAM, 26 Sep 2012Hey guys..how much RAM does this telephone have?Based on this guy review, it's 512 MB RAM.
Anyway i think 512MB is bare minimum for ICS, but 1GB is preferable.
rish-, 26 Sep 2012yeah if the screen is 3 inches then it will be 320 x 240 , 100 % guranteed. think of galaxy m... morethis is a reply to both of your posts. firstly I want to ask you that do you want to buy an Android phone for just playing games? The explorer is good but it has a very small amount of internal memory. Believe me, internal mem in Android is something which you will always want. apps2sd is an option but some of the basic apps will require only internal mem to work and with just 90MB you will not be able to do much. If the explorer had even 300 MB internal mem I would have gone for it but 90 MB is a deal breaker. The guy who played the fps game told in the video that the game is running smooth but because of some coating on the screen he was not able to move it fast. When he fired the bullets they had no lag. There's also one more thing that gaming on a 3 inch touch screen is not that great. You will like it at first but after 3 months you will want a bigger screen. I like the explorer very much but the chat has JB+good internal mem+cortex A9+keypad. These things heavily outweigh the explorer for me. If you only give importance to games then maybe the explorer will be the right choice for you. It has a better display, better sound quality and a great touch screen by HTC. HTC are the best as far as touch screens are concerned. The decision is yours but I suggest that you to wait for a month. You will get diwali offers too at that time and maybe the specs of the music will be released. They were not the official specs. They were just rumours and in reality it may have HVGA res.
rish-, 26 Sep 2012yeah if the screen is 3 inches then it will be 320 x 240 , 100 % guranteed. think of galaxy m... morehtc explorer runs on outdated android v2.3.5 and it has only 70 to 80mb usable internal memory for apps... but chat runs on android v4.0.4 and upgradable to v4.1 and it has 1.9gb memory for apps
but explorer has high resolution 320X480 but chat has 240X320 like galaxy y but display is not so much bad its looks nice... and it has buttery smooth experience when u play games like temple run, raging thunder 2, ninjump... etc..
choice is yours....
RAM, 26 Sep 2012Hey guys..how much RAM does this telephone have?it has 512mb available ram....
samsung galaxy chat has broadcom videocore gpu and 850 mhz Qualcom msm7227 snapdragon s1 processor....

also price of galaxy music will not be more than 8500. those other music enhancements are software equaliser profiles, explorer also has SRS . and now there will be no new phone until sept 2013 under 10k . as

since the resolution is low it is a deal breaker for me now and i am going with htc explorer . and sorry i was wrong about the gpu of this phone. i though that the gpu would be better in this phone than explorer / tipo since nenamark scores were tipo/explorer - 15.8 fps and chat - 25 fps .
but these benchmarks are useless , in reality it is opposite. i hope you have checked youtube video of galaxy chat entitled top 10 games for galaxy chat . the guy showed some games and all games were 3rd class games except temple run , and 1 last 3d fps shooter game. if not then please see that video . the game does not run fully smooth , if you look closely at that video and dont look at the player look at the surroundings and graphics . you will see game play is like this
smooth for 2 sec then slight pause then smooth for 2 sec then pause then smooth then pause . it is constant , it is not lag , i noticed it in first watch only , it is quite irritating . it has hiccups , and see the gameplay on htc explorer on youtube. you will see buttery smooth graphics and gameplay on explorer. and that too chat has a low resolution and explorer has a high one . and think if chat/music had hvga then i wonder whether it will run on it or not. please see the video it is hard to explain in words , compare both videos and then reply , thanks
rish-, 26 Sep 2012here you go guys as i said earlier samsung galaxy music will be the successor of galaxy y. ... morethe specifications are just like the chat here. I expect it to be priced just a tad higher than the gchat because of the music qualities but still it should retail under 10k. Now as far as the res is concerned there is no word of it yet but I expect it to be 240x320 because of the small screen size and the identical CPU. If that happens then the chat here will be better for me because of the real keypad. Lets see. The official specs will be out in a few days now. Thanks for sharing the link.
vishal, 26 Sep 2012the phone only comes in White colour....SADthis phone has both black and white versions. do not mislead anyone. the white version is very popular because the black version looks just ordinary and the white version gives a premium look and feel.
Is there auto correction feature if we make mistakes in typing with physical keyboard?
