HTC Incredible :: Screen Longevity On Phones?

Jun 10, 2010

So, i have been doing some reading, but cannot find any solid answers that really pertain to us. Right now, our phone's screens are beautiful, but i am wondering how long we can expect them to stay that way. In regards to #1, it is a worry given how static some of the things on our screens are, like the top right chunks of the notification bar. The 3G icon, signal bars, and time (especially AM/PM) don't change that much, and seem like a good candidate for burn-in. In reading, i think i even found a few people that said the "M" in AM/PM was already burning in. Short of rooting, is there anything that can change the bar to help it avoid burn in? In regards to two, i know that the AMOLED pixels will fade over time, especially blue first. Is there any documentation on just how long these Sammy OLED's will actually last?

Motorola Droid : Performance Effect Phones Longevity Compared To Eris For Future?

Jan 3, 2010

looking for some educated feedback on this, is the droid really better in terms of power than the eris? i returned the eris because i thought it was too slow and didn't stack up to what the droid is, but was i wrong?

i look at the verizonwireless website and they have the same stats, except for the keyboard of course. but then i hear some htc users say that the eris is just as powerful as the droid and can do everything that the droid can in terms of performance. on the other hand i get people telling me that the droid is the 'powerhouse' and ive read that the droid is the 'high-end' phone. people have told me about better cpu/processor/memory - is this true and is it noticeable? and will it effect the phones longevity compared to the eris for the future? i heard that it will as more updates comes out... someone told me that the eris will never be up to par with the droid hardware wise and that the droid is the safe bet if you want the most from future updates ... also read that the eris will be 'long in the tooth' (old) faster.

HTC Incredible :: New Batchs Of Phones Have Pink Screen

May 30, 2010

Just got a new replacement. I never knew how PINK my screen was until I compared my old phone (which I got at launch day) with another unit side by side. Finally after 2 weeks wait I got a new replacement today and the screen is perfect now. Not even a slight amount of pink screen (other than on the rare gray shades). I thought my phone had only a mild case of "pink screen" but the comparison shot with the new replacement is shocking. I had no idea how BAD it was with the screen at low to medium brightness. Could this be the cause of AMOLED shortage. Its obvious HTC deemed these pink screens acceptable and now with so many returns are rejecting them because the new phones coming in are perfect. I HIGHLY recommend testing your phone with the new units coming in and compare at low brightness. If WHITES like on googles homepage have even a SLIGHT amount of pink hue at low brightness, return your phone.

HTC EVO 4G :: Way To Extend Longevity Of Battery?

Jul 27, 2010

This thread is NOT about making your battery last longer between charges. There are plenty of those out there with tips on how to extend your battery's charge. The purpose of this thread is to share with you some PROVEN tricks on how to extend the lifespan of your battery. Everyone knows that rechargeable batteries eventually lose their capacity to hold charge, and Li-Ion is no exception. However, there are things you can do to significantly slow down the aging of your battery. Again, these are proven (measurable) techniques, and they do not originate from the NiCd or NiMH days of charging. 1) Li-Ion is sensitive to hot temperatures. They can be instantaneously damaged by intense heat, and they can lose a lot of longevity though prolonged, minor heat. Unless absolutely necessary, try not to let the battery stay higher than 40 degrees Celcius for prolonged periods. The sweet spot for Li-ion temperature is between 20-35 degrees C. Don't ever leave your phone in the car on a hot day, or leave it in the sun. The high temps will damage the battery even if the phone isn't on.

General :: Activation Screen Permanent Bypass / Various Phones

Mar 22, 2013

I am working on a project for a school system where they want to used deactivated donated phones in the classroom for WiFi access only.They will be reset to Factory Defaults, so we'll need to get pass the Activation screen.

It will be a variety of phones so that is why I am posting this here.It appears there are several different ways of bypassing the screen.I seriously doubt that they will allow Rooting of the phone, but I will pass it along as a suggestion.

Seems like the most common is the 4 corner clockwise tap. This seems to work for HTC and Motorola.What I cannot find is if this is permanent or not? If the phone Is powered off and then back on, does this have to be done again or is it once and done?I've read both, but without device in hand, I cannot confirm or deny.

Is there a list out there for all the models that support this?Samsung looks like you have to dial *#83786633 But this does not seem like a permanent solution--has to be done every time.Permanent seems to Root and delete or freeze phone.apk or setupwizard.apk?

Android :: 4 Screen Phones Are Getting All The Hype - When 5 Dell Streak Takes Backseat

Jun 24, 2010

I used a Nokia 770 for over a year, and the difference between a 3.5"-3.7" screen and the tablet's 4.1" screen is pretty glorious. Now that such a screen size is making it's way to the modern fold (first with the HTC Evo 4G, and now the hotly anticipated Motorola Droid X), I can't help but feel the humble increase isn't enough to feign serious interest over your run-of-the-mill screen size. Certainly, it's bigger, but is it enough? When the Dell Streak first showed up, I instantly knew I wanted it. 5" is the perfect gap between large screen pocket device, and 9"-10" non-pocket device.

Yet, it seems the Streak's coverage is little, even though it's already out in the United Kingdom, and showing up here stateside in under a month. Why is it? Am I beyond the fray, and am alone in thinking that 5" is perfect rather than overkill? Or are people afraid Dell might jump the shark (since this is their first phone, and is putting a lot forward)? Or am I not seeing the bigger picture here, at all?

Why are the 4" phones getting all the drolling mouths and oh-la-la's, while a 5" phone is coming in no time at all to shut down the competition?

For comparison, a little evidence before I sound like a look spouting off:
Here, even on this forum it seems evident:
Dell Mini 5 (32/265)
Motorola Droid X (126/2,940)
HTC EVO 4G (5,132/92,865)
The Droid X forum has more than ten times the post activity, even though the Dell Streak has been a tangible product for twice as long. The EVO 4G forum has well more than that, but excuses to it, since it's been available to the public for longer than the Streak has.

Google Trends: http://www.google.com/trends?q=Dell+Streak,+Motorola+Droid+X,+HTC+Evo+4G
Streak's popularity on the internet has nosedived down after it's hands-on at D8, and quickly Droid X's searches are taking it's place. Meanwhile the non-Dell phones increase in both news and search activity.

HTC Incredible :: 2.2 Update And New Or Refurb Phones?

Aug 19, 2010

Once the Froyo is rolled out will they start shipping refurb and new phones with the update pre installed? I ask because supposedly the update is extremely secure and it will be quite a while before it is rooted (just what I heard). So if I brick/lose/break my phone after the update and have to get another one will I be stuck without root?

HTC Incredible :: Why Phones React Differently?

Aug 25, 2010

I'm a little confused toward this one. People seem to have really varied reports about certain kernels and ROMs and whatnot working on their phones. For some, King's #1-3 are either really stable or completely unusable. Same goes for the Hydra kernels, or Skyraider, or Cyanogen.

But I don't get WHY this is the case. Take two Incredibles off of the HTC line and somehow they react differently to the same pieces of software. How's that work?

HTC Incredible :: Filling Up Phones Storage Make It Run Slower

May 5, 2010

I would like to know is if filling up my phones storage is going to make it run slower? I had 5 movies on my 8g microSDHC card. I decided to move them to my phones storage since nothing really uses that storage. The movies play great from both the phones storage and the SD card, but it felt like my phone was running a little slower once I did this. Is this just in my head or will my phone really run slower with its storage almost full? My phones settings state that the total space of the storage is 6.6GB and the avialable space is no 1.57GB.

HTC Incredible :: Warning About Verizon Charging Retail For Returned Phones

Jul 7, 2010

This thread won't be up long as mods always delete/lock my threads, but here is my experience with returning my Incredible and cancelling my order.

The CSR at Verizon, who was finally able to cancel my Inc replacement, mentioned something about my card being charged full retail when it goes back to the warehouse. I was like "WTF?". I ordered my original for $199.

She told me that when they are shipped back to the warehouse, they don't read the notes on your account and people are being charged the full retail price. She offered to monitor my account to ensure this does not happen.

Not sure about the whole dynamics of this, but its salt in the wound for me.

Just a heads up for anyone returning a defective Inc. that see a mysterious five hundred and some dollar charge from Verizon.

HTC Incredible :: If Froyo Added To Final Update What About TESTERS Phones?

Jul 21, 2010

there are test phones out there and from what I can tell they have had the 720p OTA update for about the last month now. But what will happen if froyo is added into the final update? I would expect they would be in the same shape as many of us rooters now with the leaked version. Just thinking ahead if we will be able to install another leaked or modified version of the update over what we have now and just have it add froyo since testers are not going to be able to roll back what they have already on their end.

I use my Dinc a lot in the car for hours at a time using GPS, Pandora and maybe other apps. Running all of them can really heat up the phone so I like to keep an eye on it. I can see the temp if I pull the notification bar down using Battery Indicator but I'd like to be able to watch this with just a glance

HTC Incredible :: Disable Auto Screen Dim Upon Screen Shut Off

Jul 19, 2010

Since root has been attained, I have a feeling this app would be possible:An app that disabled the screen dim right before the screen times out.My guess is (and please correct me if I'm wrong) that the voltage outgoing to the screen changes, and therefore dims the screen. If an app could be developed that maintains this voltage, the screen could be at a constant voltage, and not dim, ever.Has anyone heard of an app like this, and, if not, is there anyone interested in developing this?I am sure a lot of people (like myself) would be willing to donate for a program like this.
