I have a question about the headphones supplied with the Desire. I've not got mine yet, but are they any good? I normally use sennheiser CX300 II's, are they as good as these or better? I need to get some more headphones as mine are knackered. I was going to order a pair of CX300's for when my Desire arrives, but if the ones supplied are as good, then I'll not bother and save the $$$.
The headphones that came with the phone. Do they have a mic built in? Or is the person's voice going through the headphones and the phone itself picking up my voice? I ask because I thought that the pause/play button on the cord itself was only a play/pause button and nothing else. Caused a awkward situation when my friend called and I was listening to Pandora so I was about to unplug the headphones after answering and I was like "hold on" and he said "okay" in my EAR, so I said "WTF you can hear me?" and he said "Yeah, pretty well". If it uses the phone's built in speaker that'd be awesome because then I can use any headphone combo I want and leave them in all the time if someone calls.
I took the SD card from my nokia 5800 and used that in the desire from the start A. As it had all my pics and music on it , B. its an 8mb more than the 4 supplied with the phone. Now when I connect the phone to my pc via the usb it cant find the software and will only let me charge the phone via the usb. Do I need to be using the one supplied with the phone to get the best out of the phone then? And if so how do I get my pics and music from one to the other (my sd slot on the laptop doesn't accept micro sd).
Is there a pair of in the ear headphones with mic that's in between the apple headphones and bose ones? I've looked into the bose headphones, but that's alot of money to go into some wired headphones.. Does anyone have them, can you say they're worth getting for that cash? I use my phone alot for music, so good headphones are important.
I bought a set of beats headphones they worked great on my desire but know they dont work (they work on other devices including my wifes desire)What can i do to solve this problem?Do i need to reset my phone to factory settings?and will reseting the phone resolve this problem?
Just curious about others' experience with the headphone audio on their Desires.I use etymotic ER-6i earphones. In a quiet room I set the volume to "1" (i.e., one notch above nothing) and it's still a bit loud. That's how sensitive they are.While playing music there is a very noticeable hissing & popping (more like a thumping). This noise can be isolated by turning the volume to "0" while the music is playing.Others have complained of this, and different people have claimed their music is crystal clear. I wonder if there's a common defect to many but not all desires. or if only those of us with particularly sensitive earphones can hear such quiet interference.Maybe it's something else causing it, like the wifi? I will experiment later.
So it's 2nd time for me that when I use headphones other then original HTC Desire headphones my phone reboots. I just plug headphones in, start to play music and Desire reboots. It has happened for me two times using different headphones. What could course this problem?
I've searched this forum, but couldn't find the post that is same problem as mine, so I'm hoping you guys could help me out.I updated my HTC Desire a week ago to Froyo, and was having no trouble until today, when I plugged my headphones into my Desire, I couldn't change its volume when I played the music on the device. Even I pressed the volume controls on the left, it didn't change. It stayed in loud volume. I went to setting on Desire, and changed the media volume, but still nothing. I did the Factory data reset twice today, but still having the same problem. Also, this has nothing to do with the volume issue, but I cannot turn my cell phone off. Every time I tried to turn it off by pressing the button on the left top, it once does turn off, but few seconds later, it turns on automatically. I didn't know if I should create two different threads for each of them or not.
Got a Desire partly because once the 32GB comes out (on pre-order) I'll be using it as an mp3 player as well as a phone. Managed to find a good program to sync my music with it (MediaMonkey) and now the only other hurdle to this seems to be the volume levels which are too low for my liking. Will simply getting headphones with a volume control push the volume up further? I'm planning on buying some headphones for it that'll include a mic, volume control and maybe a couple of buttons to control the music, but is there anything that has all these? I'm not keen on bluetooth devices in the slightest, so just want some super-duper in-ear headphones really.
When I first got the Desire, the inline controls controled the functions of the HTC and Android music players, (not 3cubed for example.) Since installing Doubletwist music player, the controls now control Doubletwist only..? So now if im using the HTC player and press the > controll to pause the song, it starts playing the last song I had open in Doubletwist over the top of the song I was listening to in the HTC app. and the only way to stop it is to use task manager to kill Doubletwist.
I've got a set of Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970 bluetooth headphones. I can pair the headphones fine, but for some reason only the Media source on the Desire pairs with the headphones - the Phone part doesn't. Is there something I haven't done? Has anyone had any similar problems with other BT headphones?
I have some scosche headphones that are for iphones but the pause/play button works. I want the app "music" not to pause/play but for only winamp pro to pause/play. How to disable music from reacting? Can I completely uninstall the music app?
When playing music or watching video using the headphones that came with it, there is a lot of crackling and hissing. If you go back to the home screen, there is a high pitched whistling sound (almost as if you've placed a microphone next to a speaker and are getting feedback as a result.) I can't seem to get any FM radio stations either. I've tried three different sets of headphones as well as the set bundled with the Desire and all have the same problem. Is this a known issue or should I phone O2 and get it replaced.
I want to add support for Arabic (or other languages which are currently unsupported) to the applications supplied by android platform (e.g. Browser) without the need of having root-access. To add Arabic support (at least displaying only) in a normal application (using developer SDK), I will need to:
Add fonts Modify (reshape) the characters to be rendered For illustration, if I have string a aaa, I will need to change a aaa into a bcd because letter a at the beginning, middle, and end of a word need to be changed to b,c and d respectively). But now I want to compile android's Browser (and other apps). I am planning to get the source codes for these applications and their dependencies and bundle them as stand-alone applications which do not require root-access, and thus do not void the warranty.
Other solutions which void the warranty can be obtained here. My Questions: Is the application's (e.g. Browser's) source code + 'developer SDK' enough to accomplish this? Do I need to get the source code + the development environment for the android platform? Any tips?
So I was cycling home from work listening to some music on my Desire through the headphones via Meridian music player. During the trip home the music muted for 10 seconds or so and then re-started. I checked the phone and noticed that I had a missed call. My phone was set to vibrate only. I didn't feel it vibrate in my pocket whilst cycling. When I've listened to music before I've always heard some notification through the headphones when a call, text or email has come through but I can't be sure that the phone was on vibrate on these occasions.
Can anyone confirm that when using the headphones with the phone on vibrate you will not get an audible notification when a call, text or email comes through? If this is the case its a bit annoying because if its an email I am happy to wait till I get home but if its a call I want to take it straight away. With no audible notification you have no way of knowing whats come through.
I've had the Desire for about 3 weeks now and it's a brilliant phone. However, quite often I listen to music from my Desire through my headphones to help me get to sleep. Unfortunately though, the lowest media volume setting is too loud through my headphones. It's seems to be either a choice of no music (i.e media volume turned to zero) or the next level up (which is too loud). Is there anyway to get a volume in between the two? I've tried apps such as AudioManager but to no avail
If I'm on the home screen of my Desire and I play the Play button on my (bundled HTC) headphones, both Music and Listen start playing. If I was already listening to music and I hit the button to pause it, the music pauses but once again Listen starts playing. Is there any way I can easily avoid this?
I am using marks' method of alarmreceiver and appservice. I am trying to pass a record id to the alarmintent through putextra and receive it in ontimealarmreceiver in getExtra. What I observe is, first time record id goes correct (say 11) second time record id is sent 12, but in receiver I receive record id = 11. Third time too record id -11
I would like to see a site where I can register and specify features for a phone and get notified thru email when a device comes to market with those specification. Is there any service already? I am looking for a phone which has the following features:-Android OS 2.1 - with the default google supplied interface(i choose this because , i believe google will try to make future updates in android available for all phones)
Anyone know of a good RSS app with a widget (that allows you to specify your own feeds) that has the option to take up the entire screen, not just a single line? To be clear, I want an app with widget that can display on a screen, not an app that you have to browse to, then open, and then view a list of feeds.What I'm looking for is something like the native News app but something that actually works! I've tried to use that app before but it refuses to update properly even when I try to do a manual update.
Hey guys i have been using the Facebook for HTC sense upto a few weeks ago but the new update just takes me to the web facebook which does not let me sign in, So are there any other good facebook apps out there? Cheers =]
I need a pair of good earphones under US $50 (~ AED 150) to use with my Desire. I know there are a couple of threads for this, but they all recommend expensive ones.I've never shopped for earphones before, have always used the ones supplied with the devices. So what do I have to look for? The stock earphones are not great for noisy environments, so I would like something with noise isolation.
So after all the horror stories about battery life I was kinda worried about my new Desire especially as I am a full brightness, 3G loving kinda man. But having got the phone on saturday, I have found it quite good. I mean, I played with it almost constantly for about 8 hours, and I still had 30% charge left.
Normal usage would be maybe an 2 hours or so per day, so i don't think there is any danger I'm gonna run outta juice at work. Also, when sleeping, I don't seem to lose any battery power at all, despite the experiences of others. Anyone else think the battery problems are overblown?
I had an HTC Desire (actually I had 4) before I got a refund due to a whole host of technical problems. Given that the problems I encountered don't seem to be widespread (mostly concerning the vibrate mechanism failing), I am thinking I may have just got caught up in a bad batch and am considering trying again.I tried other phones but nothing really compares to the Desire at the moment. The iPhone 4 looks nicer, but the OS bores me to death and it seems there are far more technical problems with the iPhone than the Desire at the moment.I have looked around for other upcoming phones and, aside from the Evo 4g which is not in the UK, I can see no other alternatives to the desire. Am I missing any other options?I don't consider the Galaxy S an alternative as it looks and feels like a cheap plastic toy.
I got desire. Awesome phone. My question is regarding headset you get with the phone. Like every other headset I got with phone it appears to have music control buttons but they won't work with music application that's built in to the phone. What I mean exactly is non of the button on headset does anything like pause/play, forward or backward however it does work for hanning up calls u make. Is it suppose to not work with music or something wrong with mine?
Don't get me wrong, I didn't get a desire for gaming (i think we have got a long way to go before Android is a viable gaming platform), but I am sometimes surprised by the Desire's inability to run some games properly. Snapdragon processors seem very good at number crunching, but struggle with graphics. Look at the Quake 2 comparison of the Galaxy S and the Desire. of course, the Galaxy S is going to win, but I was surprised just how bad the Desire game out. can't have been more than 3-5 frames per second. I have seen this in other areas to, like the recent Sims 3 conversion for Snapdragon processors. Again, once things get a bit busy on the screen, the snapdragon simply starts to drop a ton of frames. So, are we seeing devs not optimising games for snapdragon processors? Or are snapdragons simply no good for games? That said, raging thunder 2 runs quite well. Like I said, this is more out of interest than anything else. Really like the Desire and never intended to do much 3d gaming on it, but some early results have been a little disappointing.
I have the Dolphin widget but it's poor.Does anyone have any good widgets out there that will allow you to put bookmarks in the order you want them etc?Searched the market and there are no that many it seems.
First of all, sorry to the administrator for already posting this thread in the wrong section (Tips and tricks) Question: Have you ever tried to make a videorecording when you're at a concert? (I'm not speaking about a classical concert!) I did and the result was horrible for the sound part Is there a trick when I want a good quality audio?
