which phone is better and how ?
Price in market ?
Real model names ?
DELL xcd is zte blade in real ?
cons and pons .....!!
DOCOMO IDEOS ... another phone and MTS cdma android phone same as IDEA ID-280 .
Here the answer - The real models are
Ist - IDEA Blade - It is ZTE Blade and same as DELL xcd35 .
It has TFT capacitive screen - not almond or LCD touchscreen in INDIA .. and There are two
models USA and CHINA (check ZTE blade wiki and search DELL XCD by ctrl + f key )
is a pure
IInd - IDEA ID-280 It is Huawei U8180 IDEOS X1 and it is also chinese phone .
IIIrd - DOCOMO IDEOS . It is Huawei U8150 IDEOS and it is also chinese phone.
Which is better - in my view PRICE wise and operator's benefit wise - IDEA ID-280 is good .
These phones can upgraded to 2.2 officialy , and 2.3 too but unofficialy .. Do this after completing warrenty period ( for gingerbread ) .
To know complete correct specification go to gsmarena.com .
All of these pure chinese PHONE with CORE chinese comapany
How long these phones will run -- no one knows...
Better is just invest some more money and go for branded phone
like sony . samsung ,HTC
I have done research on these phones ,
so i m sure..
and about price
i found prices in jaipur
Ist BLADE 7200
IInd ID-280 5200
IIIrd -- have not checked
Buy it from ouside..
not from showroom ... Idea showroom or docomo showroom .
Local dealer can sell it in good price ..!!
Date is 17 - FEB - 2012 .
Price RATE this Question , if you find it interesting..
and please LEAVE comments...!!
excellent phone. beats lots of phones of even price higher than it. i got this in india with name idea bladefor rs 7600.
except video recording of 15fps everything is awesome. if your going for phone of even 9 or 10k i would recomend to even go much higher by 5k+ or get this phone. it has bass suitable woofers :)
In india it released in idea blade with android froyo(2.2), i have one doubt, can i play the hd games without lags in current (2.2) version of idea blade.
Plz help user bro's...
tez, 12 Feb 2012I have backedup my applications in es file explorer...how do I make a backup of the stock rom.... more
the recovery manager..
the clockworkmod image
download and extract all these files..
first you need to root..use universal androot..just click root and it'll do a temporary root..
install the recovery manager and the extract the clockworkmod image from latest.zip file.
Launch Recovery Manager from the App Drawer
Allow the Recovery Manager App to have Superuser Rights..if the recovery force closes just re-root..
tap the Recovery tab – Choose Install Recovery
select the image you had extracted and it will install clockworkmod recovery..
use the recovery manager to boot into recovery(there is that option somewhere in there)
tez, 12 Feb 2012I have backedup my applications in es file explorer...how do I make a backup of the stock rom.... moreyou use clockworkmod recovery to backup the stock rom..you have to boot into recovery to back up ...have you managed to install clockworkmod or can I help you with that?..
the instructions at sanfranciscoandroid.co.uk have changed a bit...the files I used are not there anymore..but I have them..just email me at konect2me at ovi dot com and I will send them to you together with the instructions..or you can skip the back up and proceed with the upgrade(not recommended)..
I have backedup my applications in es file explorer...how do I make a backup of the stock rom.which file is it in..
tez, 11 Feb 2012actually Ive just learnt all that in the sanfransisco uk site...but I havd to get orange unlim... morethere are several gingerbread roms..blade mix 360/365,gingerstir fly,moldovian high mountains,fish and chips...but cyanogen in my view offers better features and is more stable..
there is also an official gingerbread for gen 3 blades..some guys who've managed to convert to gen 3 say its quite good..but converting to gen 3 is hectic..not worth it right now..am sure a port to gen 2 is on the way..
there is also an ice cream sandwich port to the blade though its in early stages..you can try it but its not for everyday use..
Hi guyz,i bought the phone yesterday and its 2.1.can i upgrade it 2 ginger bread coz ave never used a smartphone before
tez, 11 Feb 2012actually Ive just learnt all that in the sanfransisco uk site...but I havd to get orange unlim... morecm 7.1 ..does it for me..its not the fastest rom out there but everything works..but you can download all of them and try each for a couple of days..there is also a 7.2..although not an official cm rom..its a modded one based on the 7.1..
so have you managed to install the first clockworkmod and backup your current rom or do you want with that?..the procedures are quite safe as long you download the correct files..its important to backup just in case something doesn't work out..
actually Ive just learnt all that in the sanfransisco uk site...but I havd to get orange unlimited if Im to download those large files.. which is the best custom rom to instal,,, I have seen swedish snow, cynanogen 7.0 and also 7.1 .are there others?
can we start with what is clockword.how do I instal it. and whats the use of having a backup of the stock rom.is it to prevent bricking your phone?
i'll assume you've installed clockworkmod recovery and have managed to back up your stock rom or any other rom to the SD card..this is for gen 1 blades that came with stock eclair..if yours came with a stock froyo then its most probably a gen 2 and hence these instructions are not for you..just download Mr.pigfish if you are not sure..
make any backups of the apps using titanium or root uninstaller..also backup your contacts..
ok now download the converter..
there are two of them..you can choose either of the two..depending on the partition layout you want...you can also find another converter in the cyanogen site..
download it..unzip it..use your file manager to unzip e.g es file manager
an image folder will appear..make sure that image folder is in the root of the SD card I.e not in any folder..
assuming you've downloaded cyanogen 7.1..its a zip file..do not unzip it..place the cyanogen 7.1 in the root of the SD card I.e not in any folder..also you can download the google apps..for legal reasons cyanogen provides the the google apps in a different package( download the google apps from the cyanogen site)..place that package in the root of the SD card..do not unzip it..
power off your device..wait for a few seconds..
hold the menu key and vol+ key then power on(..all 3 keys now pressed simultaneously)..you should see some green text..that means its flashing the gen 2 firmware..once its finished it'll boot into clockworkmod
wipe the factory settings and data,dalvik cache..I didn't wipe the partition layout..
now to install the rom
1.Highlight Install zip from
sdcard and press the Home
2.Highlight choose zip from
sdcard and press the Home
3.Highlight the zip file you copied to
your phone and press the Home
4.Highlight Yes - Install . and
press the Home button .
do not reboot first so that you install the google apps..repeat step 1 to 4 for the google apps..
then reboot..the first reboot should take some time so be patient..
Philo, 08 Feb email@example.com i come 2 K.U how will i get you?they removed my contact
let me give the instructions here..
tez, 06 Feb 2012my phone hasa poor sound quality with any earphones...is there any player to solve this or can... moretez..blade + stock rom(eclair)= not a good experience
blade + custom rom(e.g cyanogen 7.1)= an awesome experience..
the stock rom makes the phone so slow even typing fast is a problem..the music player hangs a lot and skips when you are launching other apps...
plus you get tons of new features with custom roms..for now you can try poweramp or mixzing or winamp pro which have tons of features..cyanogen has a DSP manager which helps you 'manage' the sound..
but you should upgrade..
