HTC Hero :: Any Hero & IPhone 3G Owners?

Nov 15, 2009

Any1 here that owns both a Hero and iPhone? What are your thoughts comparing the 2? I've had my Hero 4 less than a week, and I have to say I luv the phone. I also luv my iPhone - it's super fast and the apps u get and the integration with MobileMe are amazing.My Hero on the otherhand feels totally different - it's like u're in control of so much more. The integration with GMail has brought features to my attention that i never knew 'bout. The phone is a bit slower than the iPhone, but not to the point that it's anoying. Also the integration with Facebook makes for a very nice experience.

HTC EVO 4G :: EVO Owners Previous Hero Owners

Jun 11, 2010

Would you say the upgrade from the Hero to the EVO is worth paying $10 extra a month? This is my big hangup, as I don't have 4g and I frankly don't want to spend $10 for nothing (who does?). Since my Hero is under warranty from Best Buy, I could hypothetically return it and get the contract price for the EVO, since I bought my Hero under contract (this would work, right?). I am coming close to a month for my Hero, so this option would only be viable for a short period; after that, it is the point of no return for me. All in all, I am wondering if YOU would say it is worth the extra $120 a year upgrading from the Hero, to the EVO? I just watched a video of the EVO last night and saw how smooth it is and how much bigger it is than the HERO and I just thought that I want it, but it is gay how sprint added the $10. Sorry if I am ranting on and on, but I am just wondering from previous HERO owners only, do you think it is really worth it? I am semi-content with my Hero (at least I was till I saw how smooth the EVO ran), but if it is hands down worth the extra $120, I just might go for it.

Sprint HTC Hero :: All Hero Owners Regarding Notification Lights

Oct 26, 2009

Alright well I got my Hero on release date(After going through 3 Pre's! ). Well so far I love it. Battery life has been just fine(And thats with the system at 100% lol), and the apps are amazing. But I have a question. I noticed there's two LED lights at the top of the phone. Yet I've only ever seen one light up! Is this how it is for everyone else? Only my left one lights up(green for texts, and amber for charging). And my friend's G1's Scroll Wheel also lights up, and was just wondering why ours doesn't.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Attn Sprint Hero Owners

Jun 12, 2010

Just went to my local sprint store to check out the EVO and feel jealous. After talking to the sales person and expressing this jealousy, she asked what phone I had and when I bought it. When I told her I've had the hero since Oct, she smiled and informed me that I most likely was a Premier Customer and that I would be able to upgrade this Oct!! I told her that I thought to be premier, you had to be a customer for ten years. She then told me that if you have a data heavy plan, like the unlimited data plan, and have made payments on time for 3, yes, 3 consecutive MONTHS, you are now a premier customer, and can upgrade your phone EVERY 12 MONTHS! that is huge news for us hero owners. though I do love my hero, just thinking about having the beautiful EVO in just 4 short months makes my day, my week, my month and my year! Ok i'm done, just thought everyone should know.

HTC Hero :: Does Hero Have App Limit Like IPhone Or Pre?

Oct 14, 2009

I'm considering to switch to Hero from Pre. Pre is a really nice phone with the excellent webos system. But many small bugs, lag, freezing up just ****ed me off.Before I make the switch, I want to make sure Hero is as good as what I heard:

1. Hero only has <300M ROM and RAM, how does this handle the future O/S updates and mult-running apps?

2. Does Hero have an app limit like Iphone or Pre? LIke how many apps you can get at most, or you can get apps up to ***Mb?

3. I heard Hero doesn't allow to store downloaded apps to the microSD card, which leads to another similar quesiton, with the <300M memory, there will be a small room for applications.

4. Can you use Hero as a USB drive to drag and drop files(mp3, video, pictures, documents) to Hero from the computer? When you send an email from Hero, can you attach the files that you copied to the Hero even though Hero can't read the file(say some strange format file)? I know Pre can do this.

5. Can you create as many pictures folders as you want on Hero when you copying pictures from your computer so you can see pictures in different folders on Hero to better browse? I heard you can't create different photo folders on Hero and all photo are stored in one folder which is very crowded and hard to browse. Same question for mp3 / video folders.

6. Is it true that you don't know which app is running at background or which app is closed by Hero? Is there a limit on how many apps you can open at the same time? Is it easy to switch between them, (like pre)?

7. Can the battery last more than a day with moderate to heavy use? I heard it's way better than Pre battery.

HTC Hero :: IPhone Cant Run Simultaneous Apps

Oct 19, 2009

I just wanted to check, e.g. on my Hero I can run GPS Tracker and press home and it will run in the background, play some music and press home and it will run in the background and go and do something else.

Are you saying the iPhone would have to completely exit the GPS Tracker to use another app or leave the GPS Tracker open and not do anything else for it to work?

HTC Hero :: How To Silence An IPhone Fanboy?

Oct 18, 2009

I saw my friend today armed with his iPhone 3GS - we were in a restaurant with our families and on seeing my Hero he became quite defensive trying to imply that Android would be no better than Betamax or HD DVD and that Apple had already won the smartphone battle. I then started showing him some of our apps like shopsavvy and google skymap along with the SenseUI. His respose was to say "I bet you cant do this" - his iPhone then made a puny fart sound. The was no choice for me at this stage - I launched "Noble Fart" and activated a long wet one - his face dropped at the superiority of the sound and the iPhone got put back in his pocket. All I had to contend with then was the look on our wive's faces along with most of the table's occupants near to us!

HTC Hero :: Switched From Iphone To Phone With Android

Jan 20, 2010

i last week took a HTC hero out on contract and switched from my iphone 3g, which i loved dearly reason being i wanted to use spotify to its full potential without having to shutdown etc.It's definately the best decision i ever took, i absolutely love the android platform and would recomend anyone else thinking of doing the same. A few question thought i have about the Hero;

1) battery life, seems pretty short? can i buy a better battery without having ot change the back cover? I like the idea of being able to carry a spare?

2)When on the internet/browser it always opens pages zoomed in, i find it pretty hard to use compared to the iphone, can i set it so that it open the page like a normal pc/iphone?

3)And how do i know i'm getting a 3g signal ?

4)Upgrade for Android? How do i get them? I read there is a better version but how do i upgrade it?

Android :: How Many Motorola Owners Will Switch To HTC?

Jul 23, 2010

I've never really been a fan of HTC in general, nor do I like the Sense UI they plop over their Android devices. Since the original Droid came out, I've been a happy camper with Motorola's first offering in the Android ecosystem. I have to say, I was very excited to find out that both the Droid X and Droid 2 were on the horizon, until the announcement that the bootloader would be locked.I'm not going to go into every reason that this is stupid. There are plenty of articles and posts about that already. I'll just say this. If the Droid X is not compromised within a month or two, or if it is demonstrated that the encrypted bootloader will probably not be beatable, I will not buy any more Motorola products. Not that the company cares, but I'm getting it out there.

Android :: Good Mileage Tracker For Business Owners?

Dec 14, 2009

I travel on the road a lot for work, and traveling expenses are probably my largest tax write-off. Yet, I've been unable to find a nice app in the marketplace that allows me to simply input my starting odometer and my ending odometer when I get home, and arrive at a simple calculation as to how many miles I traveled on that particular trip and what my approximate tax write-off would be.

On the Iphone, I used to use an app called "MileBug". It was great. Sadly I haven't been able to find anything that compares to that app in android. Do any of you know of a good app for such a purpose? I'm not interested in the plethora of apps available to monitor my gas mileage or my MPG. I just want a simple application that allows me to quickly record my miles traveled per trip.

HTC Incredible :: Any Non-rooted Dinc Owners Receive OTA Update?

I don't want to start a flame war, but I've heard from two people that they've received an OTA update notification. One of them has a rooted phone, the other person is an acquaintance and I don't know if their phone is rooted or not.Personally I think it might have something to do with rooted Dinc's (I haven't gotten a notice) but just to be sure, has anyone else received an update notice?

HTC Hero :: Sprint Hero 2.1 ROM On Oange HTC Hero

Jun 23, 2010

I have (UNFORTUNATELY) an Orange branded/locked HTC Hero running the oh-so-old Android 1.5 ROM....what would happen if I tried updating it with the Sprint 2.1 ROM (if this is possible).If it's not possible / will brick my phone, does anyone have any idea when Orange will release the update (not even had the fabled pre-update update which the rest of Europe seem to have had or about to).As an aside, I will NEVER buy an HTC phone again after this s*** is over with. They may wonder why people want iPhones....Apple promise the iOS4 update...they deliver, on time with no malarkey about supposed different carrier versions. Counting the months till I'm out of contract and can sack off my HTC Hero.

Android :: Motorola Droid Owners To Port 3G Watchdog Application

Nov 7, 2009

I'm the developer of 3G Watchdog, an application that monitors 3G traffic. I need help from Motorola Droid owners to port it to that phone.The app gets the network statistics data by reading pseudo-files /sys/ class/net/xxxx/statistics/rx_bytes and tx_bytes. "xxx" is the network interface name, which depends on the platform (or rather, the maker), e.g. for HTC phones it is "rmnet0", "pdp0" for Samsung..I'm looking for the name used by the Droid. If someone with a Droid could look (using adb) at / sys/ class/ net/ xxxx/ statistics/ rx_bytes and tell me what the xxxx is, it would make 3G Watchdog accessible to Motorola users.BTW, this remark is valid for any other future phone (Ericson, etc). New Android phones will appear on the market, and I need owner's contribution to port 3GW on them.
