HTC Hero :: Eyesight Cannot Cope With Tiny Text

Feb 9, 2010

before my 14 day change your mind period is up. Simple reason is because my eyesight cannot cope with the tiny text. Even with wearing my reading glasses i still felt strained. Such a great phone let down by something so easily fixable. I tried the Spare Parts app but it only works with some functions. I know countless other people have had this problem.

Sprint HTC Hero :: 2.1 And The Hero's Ability To Cope

Jan 8, 2010

I just watched the interview vids on Engadget w/ the Sr Product Mgr for Android.

I know we are getting 2.1. I get this. But I'm unsure if our hardware is going to be able to handle all the 2.1 fanciness we all may be expecting with the 2.1 update.

Erick makes it clear that MANY phones will be getting 2.x+, but that doesnt mean that they will be able to handle GrfxProc intensive features like live backgrounds, Google Earth, or, who know what else.

I dont know what the Hero has got going on inside. For the most part, I really dont care - I just want the phone to do what I want it to do. So, that said, I have no idea if it will be able to do what I want.

Live Backgrounds? Cool, I like it, but I can live w/o it.

Google Earth? Again, nice, but wont shatter my world if I cant have it.

But WHAT'S NEXT? That's the big question. The feature/app I'm concerned about is what might be just around the corner that I cant use. Then more on top of that.

So, I guess all this just to ask: Has anyone seen a spec sheet that says the official minimum requirements to run things like Live BG and Earth? And how does the Hero measure up to that list?

Android :: How To Get Past Default Tiny Text Size

Nov 7, 2009

Let's share info on how we who have poor eyesight can better use our Android phones, what do you say?

1. A program called Spare Parts would allow you to increase font size for many apps. Does not work for the HTC Hero (OS 1.5). Unknown if it woks for any other OS or phone that is currently in existence.

2. A program called Bettercut allows you to create a Display shortcut and use that to enlarge text on some apps. Does not work on the HTC Hero (1.5). Developer says it may be because of the special Home screen the Hero has. Unknown if it works for any other OS or phone.

3. Browser allows you to zoom in out of the box (unless you searched google!)

4. Do OS versions 1.6 and 2.0 allow one to enlarge text out of the box?

Android :: How Come User Reported Tiny Text On Motorola DROID?

Nov 20, 2009

A user of my Android App reported that he was seeing tiny text. How is this possible? More importantly, how can I use the emulator to be sure that my changes will fix it?This user has a Motorola DROID phone, which has a different screen resolution and maybe other slight differences.I assume that the problem was I didn't test using the right screen size. However, I followed the instructions here and tested a larger screen and the text was fine. I know my app has fixed pixel heights like this: android:layout_height="64px" and I use text side parameters like: android:textSize="14sp" or android:textSize="12pt"

The speaker is on the back of the phone, below the battery cover. When I hold the phone by its sides while watching a video, the speaker sound can sound tiny. But when I cup the back of the phone with my right hand, the volume is increased, possibly because the sound bounces off my hand.

Android :: Warning! Do Not Use Paper Tissues - Tiny Scratches On The Surface

Sep 2, 2010

I'm very happy with my new smartphone, the Galaxy S from Samsung . I don't use any protection for the screen, so i wipe out the "fingerprints" with something to make it nice and shiny! However i did use, several times, paper tissues. Big mistake. If i hold down the phone in bright light, i see tiny scratches on the surface .

So only use cloth and nothing less if you don't use protection, but NEVER use paper tissues!

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Transfer Videos To Phone Only Play As Tiny Thumbnails / Increase Its Size?

Oct 8, 2010

I've just got an x10i, 2 days ago, mainly for the huge screen.

The problem I have is films only play as tiny thumbnails, about 1 x 1.5 inch.

I've transferred by drag and drop and via media to go, even tried setting defaults, but to no avail.

I've figured out most things with my phone but not this.

It's really infuriating as I've bought a phone for it's big screen only to watch small sized clips.
