Android :: No Light Sensor / Proximity Sensor Detected On Hero?

Feb 8, 2010

I have a HTC Hero here, and when I tried to get the list of available sensors on the device by calling ((SensorManager) getSystemService (Context.SENSOR_SERVICE)) .getSensorList(Sensor.TYPE_ALL); I get only the following sensors: D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: BMA150 3-axis Accelerometer, handle=0 D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: AK8973 3-axis Magnetic field sensor, handle=1 D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: AK8973 Orientation sensor, handle=2 D/SensorManager( 6302): found sensor: AK8973 Temperature sensor, handle=3 According to the specs, there should be a light and a proximity sensor on the Hero, and I've seen it in action (the automatic screen brightness adjustment) - so at least the ambient light sensor is definitely there. My question is then, why doesn't the getSensorList return for me the light and the proximity sensors?

Android :: Difference Between Orientation Sensor / Magnetic Field Sensor

Nov 2, 2010

Does anyone know the difference between the orientation sensor and magnetic field sensor on Android?Since I've read that magnetometer is synonymous with digital compass I'm a little bit confused. What are they really?

HTC Droid Eris :: My Home Sensor Is Not As Responsive As My Back Sensor

Feb 18, 2010

My home icon is way less responsive than the back icon which seems to be perfectly normal. Sometimes I have to "press" the home icon twice to get the "buzz" and have it move the screen. However the back icon works 99% of the time on the first press. IS there any adjustment I can make or should I bring the phone back. I have had it now for 2 weeks.

HTC Droid Eris :: Voids Manufacturer's Warranty?

May 3, 2010

first off, let me say "Hi". got my Eris about 3 months ago and been lurking ever since . i've enjoyed reading just about every single page of all the stickied threads -fascinating stuff. you all seem pretty Knowledgeable (OTD, Caddyman, etc) and look forward to reading you thoughts on this. Here's the scenario:i have an Eris and my girlfriend has an EnV2 she will soon be upgrading to the Incredible. she suggested we swap phones once she gets the Inc, since she doesn't really need all that extra fancy stuff -i reluctantly agreed so yesterday, just for kicks, i brought this up to a store tech and she said that wouldn't be a problem, but once the phone comes off the original account it was activated on, the manufacturer voids the 1-year warranty ergo i wouldn't have a warranty on the Inc, nor would she have one on the Eris post swap. does this sound crazy, or is it just me? secondly, would it really be as simple as i imagine? just swapping phones & switching ESN's on our respective accounts once her Inc is activated?

Motorola Droid :: Most Root Friendly Manufacturer?

Sep 19, 2010

I'm increasingly feeling like our beloved Droid1, which has been by far the best supported by developers of root, will eventually be abandoned by our developers as more and more smartphones emerge with better specs - from manufacturers who will play ball with us - unlike the Motorola, who is apparently giving the root community the cold shoulder with new encrypted bootloaders and closed exploits.As November approaches, the mass exodus will begin as those who can upgrade early will begin to do so (as some already have who have lines on their accounts that are upgradable now), and the number of Droid1 owners will dwindle more rapidly.My question is - after the dust settles - to which manufacturers will our developers migrate to the most? Which one will be the most root-friendly? I have been spoiled by flashing ROM after ROM after ROM and making all sorts of modifications, and the thought of having to use anything stock turns my stomach.Pete, Fab, Chevy, JRummy, Koush, CyanogenMod team, CVPS - and others (you know who you are) - feel free to guide us in the right direction!

Android :: App To Reduce Brightness To Below Manufacturer's Level?

Nov 7, 2010

I'm finding my screen is too bright for me to read with in bed at night, even when set to the dimmest setting and with the background black and the text brown. I had this same issue with my old Palm Tungsten E2, but there was a program that allowed the screen to be adjusted to even lower than the manufacturer's level. Is there a similar app for Android? (Actually, I find my screen too bright at the best of times, too.)

Android :: Which Manufacturer Has Best Track Record For Updates?

Sep 14, 2010

I'm an adroid newb. just wanted to get it out there.First thing i've noticed now is this worrying trend of us consumers being dependent on the good graces of the manufacturers depending on them for OS upgrades and we all know they never really care or are motivated with providing something for free.It seems like the same problem as the Laptop PC market has with them being slow releasing new drivers making our choices of which Linux or windows one wants to install limited and the negative performance impact that follows. My having to install drivers in compatibility mode on my HTC SHIFT to be able to run win7 on it which is waaay better on such a slow machine rather than the originally bundled vista.SO, to the point. What android smartphone builder are generally considered the best and fastest, most reliable at releasing these new updates Froyo and future versions.If i wanted to buy a real top-of-the-line model which would make the best investment, like will any of them get android 3 updates when it becomes available?

Android :: Google / Carriers / Manufacturer Relationships / Support

Jun 30, 2010

I'm about to dump ATT/IPhone for Sprint/Android (EVO), but one thing has been nagging me and I want to make sure I know my options before jumping (e.g. given these 2 yr contracts).My concern is with ongoing support for my phone after purchase, support in terms of receiving the latest/greatest updates to the Android platform (e.g. within hardware constraints). Who ultimately controls whether a phone gets a release (e.g. Carrier or Manufacturer)?It seems to me the best bet is to go with the Nexus One platform given that is under the control of Google and should be well supported in that respect. However, it seems like it is going to be a hassle and/or costly to go with Nexus One using Sprint. Is there anyway around paying full price for Nexus One and using Sprint as a carrier? Any chance Google has a deal with the carriers to subsidize phones?Plus, I would prefer not to have the blot (e.g. UI modifications, app replacements, etc) added to the phone by Carriers and/or Manufactures (e.g. prefer Android as perceived by Google). Wondering who has the control of UI modifications. Does the Carrier contract with the Manufacturer and have control over what is added and how it is supported (e.g. whether a phone gets a new Android release, etc)? Or does the Manufacturer have the control?And lastly, say I get the EVO and on down the line someone (Manufacturer or Carrier) decides no more updates for the EVO. It sounds like I should be able to root the phone and continue with updates. Without support from Carrier/Manufacturer of course, but is it against the Carriers rules to root a phone?
Also, when rooting a phone, I'm assuming you can not take a release straight from Google and install it. Rather, someone has to implement the release for the target hardware (e.g. build, add any necessary drivers, etc). Are there any gotchas in doing this? Who is the most reliable supplier of these builds? I know that is a pretty broad question and I'll plan on doing additional research in that areas, but if anybody can give me a nudge or share their experience, that would be great.

HTC EVO 4G :: Calibration For G Sensor

Jun 20, 2010

On threads about the lag issue it was recomended to do a g-sensor calibration. Before I did one I had no noticible lag but the posters said this would increase responce. So I did a g-sensor calibration and now I have a noticible lag while scrolling. Any thought on this and what could be happening. The fact that the response changed gives me hope it could be corrected through settings or software updates. But just maybe it is a bad idea to follow all advice one sees on here.

HTC Desire :: Where Is Proximity Sensor?

Jun 23, 2010

Where abouts is the sensor that detects if you are holding the phone up to your ear and dims the screen? Need to modify my wife's case (like what I did with her old iPhone case) as it doesnt turn the screen off, or if it does it doesnt turn it back on afterwards!

HTC EVO 4G :: Motion Sensor While On Call?

Nov 18, 2010

i just discovered somehthing pretty cool. You know when your on a call the screen is black, and then when you move it from your ear the screen turns on? Well i thought the screen was triggered by accelerometer movement. Its not. Theres a motion sensor right below the front speaker. I tested by being on a call, then i pulled the fone away from my ear and saw the screen turned off, then i waved my finger over the sensor and the screen would turn on and off. Or does everyone already know this?..lol Try it, its pretty cool.

Android :: Enhanced Sensor API

Jun 2, 2009

I had a discussion with a few of the Android team member at Google IO, and I'd like to throw the idea out here for general brainstorming with the community. My view is that it is not a good approach to create "sensor-specific" APIs with iterative releases of the Android platform and SDK's. By this, I mean that instead of adding a "location API", and an "accelerometer API", and whatever comes next, we should create a "generic" sensor API that can work with a broad range of sensor types, including sensor configuration, demand read/write/configuration, event notifications, and other functions. In this way, 3rd parties could also add innovative sensing capabilities (or external sensors) to their Android devices which would be "instantly" supported by the platform. Well-known sensor such as collocation and acceleration could have agreed-to sensor names/namespaces, with full extensibility for additional sensor types. As an example, collocation as a 2D longitude/latitude is fine for some apps, but for "inside the building" applications or for other apps involving the need to accurate location of people or resources in 3 dimensions, it doesn't cut it. Additionally, one can easily envision inclusion of RFID, environmental, and other sensors in devices that could dramatically enhance the capabilities of Android applications.

Android :: Example App That Uses Accelerometer Sensor?

Jan 23, 2009

Where can I find a simple example application that uses the Accelerometer Sensor?

I've seen the Open Intents applications, but I'd rather use the raw Android API, at least until I understand it a little better. I'm surprised at the lack of documentation.

HTC Hero :: Missing G-sensor Calibration In 2.1

Jun 30, 2010

Since I know about the known issue of Hero G-sensor not able to save the calibration. I waited till I get the 2.1 hoping this will fix the issue. Right now. Nor does it not fix the issue I cant find the option anymore Bubble calibrates and remebers okay. But those apps like google sky or teeter arent affected by that Some apps have their own calibrations like bubble - works well or papi jump. But abduction with its own calibration wont work. Suspecting that google sky map and others wont work either. Anyone happy with 2.1 (+ more issues in this forum) like me? And anyone know where i could find the setting in 2.1? Am either blind or its not there. The advice with the tapping and turning and tapping etc did it work for anyone?

I had real problems until with my phone until I loaded the proximity sensor. I had a little trouble getting it to work but when it did, it remedied the one thing that I disliked about the Hero.

HTC Desire HD :: Still Having Error With Proximity Sensor

Oct 24, 2010

Anyone still having problems with the black screen? Have downloaded and installed the ota update and if anything the problem is worse! Seems ok on incoming calls but if I make an outgoing call the screen goes blank and the only way to reactivate is to hit the power key. This is starting to sound like faulty hardware to me. I read that the ota update was supposed to sort this! Any advise would be appreciated as other than this really annoying problem the phone is great!

HTC Desire :: Little Annoyance With Proximity Sensor

Jul 4, 2010

First of all, I love my Desire, but there's something bothering me that's been costing me some money and trouble: Whenever I accidentaly call someone, I press the back button thinking it hangs up the call. But then I realise it's still calling! So I try to bring up the notification bar, though whenever I try to place my finger near the top of the phone, it automatically turns of the screen. After 20 seconds of trying, I've already lost money and afterwards people call back or message me why I've been calling them. Anyone else had this problem yet?

HTC Desire :: Proximity Sensor During Call

Somehow I keep managing to hang up on calls/call other people during calls.

Is there an app that requires the screen to be unlocked during a call when the screen re-activates?
