Is the screen flushed with the body as in flat with the body like the HTC Diamond for example or is it recessed like older WinMo devices?
it could have been the sidekick 5 for t-mobile
but its not ahh well their loss
but one thing i have to comment on is..
What were they thinking making this extremely UGLY body?
it is by far the ugliest looking phone amongst any of its competitors
3 steps backwards htc.. especially when u have such a nice htc diamond??????????
The Iphone unlocked and jailbroken Eats this phone alive....
but it was a nice try to emulate the success of the iphone... '
at least its better than that damn nokia n95
yo i have recently recieved the G1 like 2 days ago and i can say its far yet one of the best smartphones out there, and of course theres flaws (who doesnt?) but the 1 thing that stands out most about the phone is the OS. its so f***ing amazing and the apps that r free for download!!! bad thing, no stereo bluetooth and gps
seems to me that android is looking a bit incomplete.
no video player, no flash in the browser, no proper bluetooth.
all seems a bit iphone-esque.
also is it true that this phone was going to be a windows mobile phone, but last minute changes chucked android on it?
how can you watch avi files on G1, what file types are supported, can you view word, excel and pdf files with the doc viewer and where is there a list of the applications available please. any help for a potential buyer?
not practically used but reading the feature and all opinion about this model, it sounds good but only thing is no knowledge about availability in india, and best part is compare to iphone camera pixel were iphone is 2mp and this is 3.15mp. and also Q.keyboard. this makes life easy. anyway i wish all good luck for this model. is rocking.... i believe....
phone is AWESOME us recieved it yesterday.had the dash before and the g1 blows it out the sky, including the weak IPHONE
The YouTube on the G1 lacks picture quality vs. the iPhone/iPod Touch. The iPhone's YouTube is superior to the G1 in picture quality.
I had a look at the G1, and found out that the web browser does not support Adobe Flash.
If you keep your Wifi off, 3g, GPS off... Battery life is almost doubled. Just use Edge unless you need more speed. When you are done, turn it off. This phone is really reliable. I've had it for a few weeks now, bought it the day it came out. I've never had an issue. Phone at the end of the day when it's time for bed is when it reaches 15% battery, so I plug it in overnight. But I never really talk on the phone, so I also conserve battery that way. I personally have no complaints what so ever, I've used the iPhone before and wasn't impressed. But this phone I love. I'd have to test both next to eachother for a final judgement, but I love this phone too much to bother.
Man I can't even demo this to customers because I have to set up a google mail account to activate it! Hopefully we get some demo units, because it looks like an interesting handset.
64k colours is a windows mobile limitation not an HTC issue. I believe windows mobile 7 will address this and try to catch up with the other software based phones currently running at 16m etc...
hope this helps
no whats the 65k screen doing in herre .come on htc its outdated we need 16m colors touch screen
Some people say that the battery life is poor, well it's all depending on how you use it. Android G1 lets you know what apps are the ones that burn the most battery and you should only turn them on when you are using them, because when they are idle it means that they still have to get battery energy. So its all about on how you use it. For example the Satellite GPS uses more battery power than just the plain regular street view. Another example is if you're Logged in in AIM, MSN and your Email account. All this apps need to be idle while you are doing something else, So always make sure you turn off what you aren't using and your battery life should resist much much Longer.
P.S Android G1 is Better than the iPhone.
What I really like from this forum is that there is so many objective opinions about cells. Ok, just to remember you something...no one of you own the G1. So can you speak about it and say "it sucks" or "I recommend it" ??!!
