Sprint HTC Hero :: Power / End Call Button Properties

Feb 10, 2010

I just got this phone a few days ago, I came from a Treo 755p. I was playing with the phone a couple days ago and came across a setting that let me decide what the power/end call button would do when pushed, IE: go to sleep, go home then go to sleep, nothing. I left it at the default and now I want to change it.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Decline Button Not Sending Call Directly To VM

Oct 29, 2009

Just talking on the hero when another call beeped in, screen came up showing who was calling. I hit the Decline button which is supposed to send the call directly to VM, but it only made the screen go away. I kept getting the beep notification that another call was trying to get through and then the choppy dial tone hang up signal after the call eventually made it to VM.

Motorola Droid :: End Call With Power Button?

Feb 3, 2010

So I just got off the phone, and again I hit the sleep button to end the call, which doesn't actually end the call. So I was thinking, is there an app that will allow this? Or can someone make one? I would if I was able to, but I'm not so I'm asking. I guess I can't break the hardware button habit and move the the full touch future.

HTC Desire :: App For Power Button Ends Call

Sep 18, 2010

I've read around that with Froyo you can go into Settings> Accessibility and turn on a feature called Power button ends call. Fairly obvious what it does, but i can't find it. Is it not available on the desire. If so, is there an app for that, or some other way to do it?

Sony Ericsson Xperia :: X10 Mini Pro Power Button To End Call

Dec 3, 2010

Just wondering why the X10 mini pro doesn't have the end call button at the top like the X10 Maxi (power button)?The lack of having this feature is absurd. The easiest and most logical way to end a call is to press the top lock screen/power button. I recommended this phone to someone and they got a massive shock when they realised they had an active call going for over 8 hours! Could you please add this feature in your next update, if not could you at least have a visual clue to let the user know that they have an active call when the screen is off, eg notification light blinking purple or something.

Motorola Droid :: Middle Of A Call The Power Button Is Not Working Nor Does The Screen Illuminate

Jun 1, 2010

I just replaced my Motorola Droid. Before when in the middle of a call or to hang up a call i just pull the phone away from my head and the screen would come on... or, i would have to use the power up button on the top of the device then swipe to unlock. Now in the middle of a call the power button is not working nor does the screen illuminate when i pull away from my head.

HTC Desire :: Power Button To End Call Is Missing From My Desire

Nov 10, 2010

I've been scouring the web a solution to this but can't seem to find it anywhere. I know it's possible to end a phone call on the Desire by pressing the power button after enabling it in settings. But when I go to Settings/Accessibility I get a pop-up message saying, 'No accessibility related application found. You can download a screen reader for your device from Android Market. Click OK to install the screen reader.'If I press 'Cancel' I'm in the accessibility settings with a single grayed-out 'Accessibility' option. But no other options are available.

Sprint HTC Hero :: How Superior Is Droid's Processing Power Really / Compared To Hero?

Feb 6, 2010

I dont know what "underclocked" means, but nonetheless the Droid's processing is a bit higher than the Hero's. And also,I know that the Arm Cortex A8 is a better processor than the Qualcomm's in the first place anyways.So, looking at those specs, is the Droid's processing power really that much more superior than the Hero's? Basically, I'm trying to get an idea of how much of the Droid's better performance is due to its processing power as opposed to its higher (and more efficiently coded, im assuming) Eclair OS.

Sprint HTC Hero :: 2.1 Power Widgets?

Mar 8, 2010

Im using the new fresh 2.1 ROM which is awesome. In 1.5 I used the settings widgets to turn on/off wifi, 3g etc. On 2.1 there is a power manager widget that basically has wifi, BT, GPS, screen brightness and sync all in one widget. I liked the other widgets better as I had the ability to turn off 3g with it. Is there any way to get thos widgets back in 2.1? Another thing I've noticed is that in 1.5 you could turn off the GPS and not affect the location services but in 2.1 I cant find a similar setup....

Sprint HTC Hero :: Conserving Battery Power?

Nov 14, 2009

I am ISO methods to conserve battery power on my Sprint HTC Hero.

I posted this thread in the Applications Forum:

WiFi - On & Off - Toggle App? Which is the best one?

ISO of a WiFi Toggle Switch so that I can turn WiFi On and Off as to avoid wasting precious battery power when I don't need to be searching for a WiFi connection.

Having this always on uses more battery consumption.

Correct?

Also, when Apps check for updates every 30 minutes vs. 4 hours, this consumes more battery power.

Correct?

So, here are some thoughts I have to reduce batter power:

Facebook Widget

I have the Facebook App and downloaded as well as the Facebook Widget.

See this video for info on the Facebook App:

www. youtube. com/watch?v=KcCpmwzL4T4
(remove spaces, I don't want to embed video here)

Questions

The facebook widget is pretty cool. It instantly updates my friends status and there's a quick-add update status text box.

However, I had the settings to check for updates every 30 minutes. Reduced this to 4 hours, but that was pointless since 4 hours is such a long interval I wound up going directly to the main Feed Home page to see the status updates list.

Is adding the Facebook Widget consuming more battery power because it's always on the Scene page, always running, always checking for updates?

Would removing the Facebook Widget save battery power?

I could simply make a shortcut for the Facebook App and open it when I want to waste time on Facebook to see how vain, narcissistic, and attention-starved my friends and colleagues are.

So, my key question here is would removing the Facebook App and only opening the program when I need it save battery power?

Twitter App

There's two options to place on the Scene. One is just a simple text update box, the other actually has a feed.

I'm using the former. Hence, it's not updating feeds and it's only being used when I enter text and hit send update to Twitter.

Also, I think I have my settings set not to check for updates.

I assume that because I'm using the non-Live-Feed option Widget on my Scene, this is not constantly checking for updates, and hence, not consuming a lot of battery power?

Correct?

Instant Messaging Programs

I have the Google Talk App, an Instant Messenger App (which has AIM, Yahoo, and MSN), and I recently downloaded the Meebo App (which has all of this plus others, including Facebook chat).

Meebo IM v21 Application for Android | Communication

I assume that by not running my IM App, or my Meebo IM App, and turning this off, this will save battery power. Correct?

Or, is it only consuming more power when I receive an incoming message. I imagine that the Meebo App, being connected to so many IM services, including Facebook, might be consuming more.

So, not leaving this on 24/7 would probably use less battery power.

Correct?

GMail App and Mail App for IMAP/POP

I have my GMail App setup. I'm getting notified each time I have an email in my Gmail Inbox. I've created a label - Inbox2 - to skip the inbox - for messages I want to read, but don't want to be instantly notified of.

I've decided not to use the Mail App - Connecting my Fastmail IMAP account on my phone because I believe this would involve running a second Mail App constantly checking for inbound mail updates.

See my post on Email and Mobile here:

http://androidforums.com/android-tips-tricks/15153-email-advanced-android-use-gmail-google-apps-fastmail-mail-clients-etc.html

By using only the GMail App and not using the Mail App for IMAP/POP, this is probably consuming less battery power.

Correct?

Question

What other steps, tips and tricks, can be taken to consume less battery power on the Sprint HTC Hero?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Mugen Power 1800mAh Review

Dec 15, 2009

Buy Mugen Power Sprint (CDMA) HTC HERO 200 1800mAh Extended Replacement Battery [HLI-HERO200SL].I ordered the Mugen Power 1800mAh battery for Sprint Hero a couple of weeks ago and it arrived from Hong Kong over the weekend. I'm not that familiar with Mugen Power but supposedly they are reputable and have good quality. The outside of the battery was covered in some sort of thin film/labeling that made it a snug fit, but it otherwise installed okay in the Hero. Got the original cover back on and if its any heavier I can't tell. I left it on the charger for 12 hours initially as instructed, and have fully discharged and recharged it a second time. I will do 2 or 3 more cycles like this to condition the battery.Now for performance, what I can tell so far. It definitely takes longer off a fresh charge to see even a dent in the battery charge indicator, whereas on the stock battery the meter drops below a full green icon pretty quick. I really feel like the 20% extra capacity is really there, as I was trying to come up with ways to suck the juice out of this thing so I could stick it back on the charge last night. Ended up leaving Sprint TV going for an hour and then read some ebooks. Left it sitting all night and it was red-lining but still holding a small charge this morning. On the old battery it would have died some time overnight (if not before due to all the network use for TV).

Just to be clear I never had severe battery drain issues with the Hero before, even before the update with the messaging fix. It lasts me a whole day without issue but I have to put it on the charge every night. I think I'll still have to charge it every night, or at least the next morning, but the added capacity just gives me a little extra boost and more peace of mind if I need to make extra use of my phone's capabilities.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Random Settings Lost On Power Off/on?

Mar 22, 2010

Did a search but did not find anything else that mentions this. I am running stock ROM with no task manager. Over the last week or two each time I power off and then back on I lose random settings and also all my widgets stop working. Today when I power cycled I lost my pattern lock and ring styles, went from vibrate to sound. Last time it was all of my bookmarks...

Anyone else run into this? I am thinking I will restore to factory settings, but figured I would see if anyone else ran into this and got it fixed?

Motorola Droid :: Designate Camera Button To Become Power Button?

Apr 21, 2010

I tried searching for this but couldn't find a thread that discussed it. My power button appears as though its been jammed. I dropped my phone on its corner where the power button is but I don't think thats what the problem is. Anyhow, recently my power button responds but I have to really press it hard and it as though the button is jammed cause it doesn't depress as far.

My question is that is there a way to designate the camera button to become the power button? I know on some phones you can make different buttons do different things and I was curious if this was possible on the Droid.

Sprint HTC Hero : When Do A Soft Reset - Power Cycle Phone Off And On - Dead Pixels

Oct 27, 2009

I've noticed that when I do a soft reset (power cycle phone off and on) that the start up screen has what looks like dead pixels. When the phone actually boots up to the HTC screen with Android waving the "dead" pixels disappear. They only appear on start-up and go away at the HTC screen with Android. I noticed about 5 "dead" spots. Is this normal?

HTC Hero :: Keep Dialing People By Accident / Disable Call Button?

Nov 29, 2009

I've had the Hero about a week now, and keep finding that whenever I'm in the dialler app, I press the big green 'Call' button by mistake.I don't like that the fact that it's highlighted as soon as you enter the app via 'Phone' on the homescreen, and it looks like it defaults to the last caller.Is there anyway to change this? Ideally I don't want it to be highlighted until I've selected a contact to call.
