I was wondering does anybody know how to save the pictures that you get in a text message. I tried everything and wasnt able to save the pictures that i receive. Can somebody help me with this? thank you.
dave, 22 Oct 2008Mine arrived two days ago, on the 20th. I'm in the dfw area and I've had about 24 hours of act... morethe majority of your post is straight up jargon, what do you mean you can't copy and paste from one message to another? MENU+C to copy and MENU+V to paste, along with the rest of your post it's pretty obvious you didn't read the manual and have no patience to figure out how to perform certain functinos, LOL.
beware of his review as it is extremely flawed and ignorant as to what this device is capable of!
yes the battery life does sux but what i found out is that if u do a lot of texting or aiming that use a lot of battery to save a lil more just turn off ur wifi bluetooth and gps it seem the longer u hav tha phone tha battery get a lil better... i had my phone 4 bout a week..and i love it.....
GqGuy, 23 Oct 2008I received my phone on the 20th and I've playing with it ever since. My only problem is the ba... moreDid you find out anything about battery life? I have to charge my G1 twice a day!
I have had my phone a week now
Battery life not good, you cn help if you turn off
3g and gps. When you are not useing. However this is a pain. So battery does suck... this is the one big drawback. Camera is very basic and no video.
Touch screen is responsive even with screen protector
dont use the one that come with it though I used Zagt and screen responsiveness was much better.
I also have the I 900 which has a better camers and a ton more features, however i find that this screen is much more responsive and easier to browse the web.
much easier to watch u tube and to download than the I 900 ..in my opinion. The features it lacks are made up for by the responsiveness and the web browsing capabilities. The Gps is also pretty good.
the gps has no built-in maps.. its just a system which u have to udate everytime.. in order to view streets or places using gps, go the the nearest ratailers and download the country maps.. it'll cost you some money.. for instance, in malaysia it costs about RM50 to Rm80 to download MAPKing2007 and maps..
You have to understand that this device is the begining of Android. Google will be doing a lot more to improve this mobile OS in the near future. I have heard that software updates will be available through the Android Application market to address certain issues that people are having.
As the first Android phone, the G1 will have a lot of issues that you wouldnt expect on other established mobile OS's!
Language support will come in the very near future and as for sending and receiving files via blutooth, hang in there, this will to be available.
It's pretty much down to all those software developers out there to make software which will either make or break this OS and with a company like Google behind it, you can rest assured that you are in good hands!
Those of us who are buying the G1 right now are like guinea pigs! I know thats not nice but its true if you think about it. We will buy, moan and groan and then you will see improvements!
It will be a good year or two before Android becomes a full featured mobile OS. Just hang in there.
G1 Guy, 24 Oct 2008Touch screen works great even with the plastic on that came with the phone. Thanks a lot for answering my question. Much appreciated.
What about the screen being scratch resistant? Is it made of glass or plastic?
Hey guys... I think this phone is cool it has a lot of good apps and features...but the only thing that boyhers that it doesn't read messages in different languages..for instance Arabic..when I receive a msg it shows me blank squares...And doesn't hav real player or media player...so does anyone hav an idea haw to get these things on it??
Wonder why they didn't allow sending files via Bluetooth, seems strange for the android platform.
Has anyone tried a 16gb card with this phone yet? I know the 8gb cards work,but need more memory. Please post if you have.
How responsive is the touch screen? I know its using a capacitive touch screen as opposed to the usual crappy resistive screens that WinMo normaly uses. Resistive screens require pressure and you cant just touch the screen lightly to do anything.
Also, how does this screen work with a screen protector on it? Is the screen scratch resistant? Does a screen protector decrease the screen responsiveness? Or would you recommend not using one?
I know a lot of you out there are lucky enough to have this device already so would be very happy to hear your opinions on this.
Can't wait for the software update that allows you to enter data with a Onscreen keyboard rather than always having to slide out the keyboard
I love this phone.. i was not every interested in getting this phone before of the slide out keyboard.. but after playing wit it at the T-mobile store, i just had to get it... Touchscreen is VERY VERY responsive. ONLY thing i hate about it is the BATTERY!!!!
I"m gettin very used to the Slide out keyboard..if you turn of anything that has to do with Wi-Fi, GPS, or any kind of functionality then i think the batter will last..
I had fully Charged my phone, got on Youtube a couple times, and surf the web and my battery was depleted.. but i turned off all that stuff and my phone lasted for another good 6hours with just texting and getting on browser a couple times
This phone is very good hardware, and has soo much potential. However, the battery life is suffering due to a few very fixable software issues. For people who purchased it on launch (like myself), it will be a bumpy ride, but in the end, you'll be very satisfied.
This phone is a great idea. I was wondering how it would be stable if there are no restrictions/testing for software developers.
The Iphone is still buggy without multitasking and a lot of restrictions on developers.
Symbian uses certificates to approve software stability with Nokia phones. It's a good and decent solution for smartphone stability.
Windows Mobile has no restrictions but users need to understand registry hacking to use it to its best flexibility.
People using this phone please keep us updated on the stability of the G-phone. Thks
