HTC EVO 4G :: 4G Areas Receiving Poor Download Speeds / Increase It?

Jun 24, 2010

Anyone else in the 4G areas receiving poor download speeds? I have run the speedtest app on multiple occasions and in different areas of Houston and my usual results are 800kb/s download and 1.1 mb/s upload. Only one time did I crack the 1 mb/s download speed and it was by a large margin (2.7 mb/s).

Is anyone else seeing these kind of results?

General :: Increase Google Play Download Speeds?

Sep 28, 2012

with webOS there was a patch that basically 'removed' a download speed limit from the HP app store (which i believe was an app store limitation)

I typically have been downloading apps from G.Play over wifi at home, but just generically wondering if there was some type of cap implementation with android and/or G.Play, and a way to remove it via a mod?

Motorola Droid :: Slow Download Speeds But Fast Upload Speeds With 43.01P Baseband?

Oct 5, 2010

I've noticed that lately, my download speeds on my rooted Droid (running BB 0.5 most recently, though this "problem" occurred with BB 0.4 and LFY 1.6 as well) have not been stellar, though my upload speeds seem fine:
Could this be caused by the baseband? Im running C_01.43.01P. Prior to that, I was running (I think) 3E, which came with the phone, and worked fine with BB 0.4 but when the updated one came out I updated it since, hey, it's newer right? Anyway, (1) is this certainly the problem? and (2) if I choose to, how can I safely roll back to the 3E baseband?

HTC Desire :: Poor Performance In Weak Signal Areas

Apr 29, 2010

I have never had any problems at home with either my trusty unlocked N95 or Orange Sony Ericsson T610 (remember them?) so I had no qualms over ordering a nice shiny (dark brown) HTC Desire.

3G coverage is a bit iffy in the area as I'm right on the border of an excellent to good area so I never expected to have super fast data over the air, but I have wifi locally for that anyway.

So you can imagine my disappointment when the first call with the mobile from home cut off quite suddenly. A retry to reconnect failed with a no service message and no signal strength. I then spent the next hour playing around with the settings turning off wifi, data, setting the phone to 3G only (no chance) and then GSM only.

When the phone was working and making a call the audio was not clean and very digital. There was also a chance that mid call you would be cut off for no reason. When it wasn't playing ball at all the signal strength varied from three bars down to zero without moving the phone. Sometimes upon initiating the call it came back immediately with no signal and cutting the call off. Picking the phone up from sitting on the side in sleep mode you were usually presented with a no service message.

Orange were excellent and immediately replaced the phone, a courier arriving at 6:15pm upon reporting the problem at 8:30am that morning. Unfortunately the replacement was exactly the same.

Even worse, my place of work is in a designated poor reception area. There are a number of us on Orange as it is the only network that can at a pinch be picked up inside. My Desire...no signal at all. Moving to a window seat got me two bars but the phone refused to connect or hold a call. The only time it did calling 150 sounded like I was listening to a recording of a Darlek. A Nokia 5300 on Orange alongside was nice and clear, with very good tone by comparison.

By chance another member of staff also had recently signed up with Orange on a Desire (500mins, unlim texts, 500Mb, free phone, 20). In a back to back test both phones were the same. We even tried swapping SIMs. Luckily for him he has no problems with reception when at home so is quite happy with the Desire.

Contacting Orange again I did not get much further. Talking to technical support they were not much help and suggested that they did not warrant the phone to work inside the building and as I could make a continuous call outside then they did not class the phone at fault. This included my problems at home in what is termed an excellent coverage area! When I pointed out that two other phones I owned did work in the very same location I was told that mobile designs differ and positions of antennas vary considerably.

Frustrated I decided the only course of action was to use my right to cancel within 7 days as it was apparent that I was not going to be able to resolve the issue. Even last night it performed perfectly for a couple of calls and then failed miserably an hour later.

As a gadget I was smitten. Even as I handed the package over to the Post Master today I was inwardly screaming �GIVE IT BACK!� Unfortunately I need to be able to make calls on it when I want, not when it wants.

I have only seen a couple of other members note a similar problem on these forums but I have noticed a large number of Nexus problems that sound very similar. I would be interested to hear if anyone else has experienced this or do you all live in 5/5 coverage areas?

Motorola Droid :: Turn Off Sync In Areas Of Poor Coverage?

Mar 29, 2010

I have a Verizon brand car charger but have never had the need to use it until this weekend when I traveled from NJ to VT for skiing. I had the navigation and pandora going the entire trip with the charger pluged in. However when I got there and unplugged the battery was almost completely dead.

Does the car charger not supply enough power to charge and run the droid with all the data and gps usage going?

Also the area where I was staying had very poor coverage and once the droid was charged it lost its charge very quickly. should I turn off sync in areas of poor coverage?

HTC EVO 4G :: HTC EVO Poor Picture And Poor Sound Quality

Jul 23, 2010

I use to own a palm pre before I switched to HTC EVO. I think the evo is a great phone but the two things I missed so much about my palm pre is the camera and the sound qualities.

The EVO is said to use 8MP for its camera but honestly the camera quality is nothing compare to the palm pre. Simply put, the camera and the sound output on the evo sucks.

You can clearly notice the difference between the pictures I took using the pre and the evo. The pre gives far better picture quality and also better sound output. I always enjoy plays my sounds or using pandora on my pre, but with the evo the different is the case. The sound quality with the evo is horrible even when plugged to good speakers.

I bearly take picture with the evo because I am used to good picture quality with my pre.

I have had the evo for less than two weeks and i am seriously thinking of returning it because of these two issues.

I really want to know, is this poor picture and poor sound qualities a thing with the evo in general or is it just with the particular evo that I got.

HTC Incredible :: Poor Incredible Sound Quality - Poor Verizon Customer Service

May 26, 2010

I (like hundreds of others) have had a call quality problem with the two Droid Incredibles I purchased for my wife and myself when they were released on April 30th. Verizon recognized that there was a problem and replaced both devices with ones manufactured about a month later (5/02) and the same issue with poor voice quality continued.

We love the device EXCEPT for the lack of ability to understand callers. So, I asked Verizon to extend our 30-day opt out to give them an opportunity to work out the issues with this device. I just received a call from Verizon customer service (which I could barely understand) and was told they would not extend the 30 day period and my option was to live with the poor sound quality or switch to another device. Verizon has no other devices that were interested in at this time so well be canceling these two lines (and one other) and returning to T-Mobile. T-Mobile may not have the best coverage, but they do have great customer service, unlike Verizon.

Android :: What Are Some Techniques To Create Scrollable Areas?

Mar 17, 2010

I'm getting started with OpenGL ES on Android and I'd looking to learn some techniques to have a game map larger than the visible area.I'm assuming I've somehow got to ensure that the system isn't rendering the entire scene, including what's outside of the visible area.I'm just not sure how I'd go about designing this.This is for simple 2D top-down tile based rendering. No real 3D except what's inherent in OpenGL ES itself.Would anyone be able to get me started on the right path? Are there options that might scale nicely when I decide to start tilting my perspective and doing 3D?

General :: Saving Battery In Constant Low Signal Areas

Feb 6, 2012

So I know it's usually best to place your phone in airplane mode when your phone doesn't have signal; however, are there any alternatives to this if you're in an area that constantly gives no reception? I live in the first floor apartment and I'm guessing the materials of the building completely kill my cell signal because I barely ever have more than one bar of signal if any signal at all. For example, my cell standby is usually about 50-55% time without signal during a given day.

I'm wondering if there is another setting or perhaps an app that will save some battery.

HTC EVO 4G :: What 3G Speeds Are You Getting?

Jun 7, 2010

I rec'd my EVO on Sat. Based on what I read about the reason for the extra $10.00 fee for premium service, I went ahead and purchased the phone, even though I don't have access to 4G at this time or maybe never have I have been checking my 3G speeds with Speedtest.n##. I have never used a phone with wireless data, so I was not just sure what to expect. I live in Tulsa, OK and this morning I went for a drive around the city and took speed reading at various points. My 3G results ranged from 0.36 to 1.93 Mbps down and 0.36 up. I decided to stop in at a local T-Mobile store and run a test there and compare it with a T-Mobile phone. It just so happened that a friend was there with his Google N1. So, we both ran the speed test on the same server. The best I could get was 1.93 Mbps and he got 3.95Mbps down. This got me to wondering if these speeds are typical for Sprint and why pay the extra $10.00 per month for a phone that was billed as providing an enhanced wireless experience. It may be enhanced, but it sure is a slow experience. By the way, at home my Wi-Fi speeds are 10.08 down and 3.00 up. Now, I know that speed varies by area and that Sprint Tulsa may just be a poor service area. Of course, all of this in is anecdotal. But, I wonder how this compares to your real time experiences. Please don't flame me, I am total new to cell phones with data plans.

HTC Incredible :: What Is Up With My 3G Speeds?

Jul 7, 2010

i love my Inc, but every time i run a speed test, I can't help but be disappointed. I am at my desk, with a decent 3G signal (-80dBm), and here is what i am getting using different servers (I am in NM):
Modesto, CA: .17Mbps Down, .80Mbps Up (158 ping)
Scottsdale AZ: 1.08Mbps Down, .28Mps Up
Flagstaff AZ: .47Mbps Down, .81Mbps Up (279 ping)
Las Vegas, NV: .49Mbps Down, .87Mbps Up (139 ping)
Albuquerque, NM: .51Mbps Down, .66Mbps Up(163 ping)
San Fran, CA: .57 Down, .89 Up
Truth be told, i expected at least twice the DL speeds (at least one megabit/s). Am I dealing with a weak network here, or should i be looking inward at a phone issue?
