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?

Android :: Android How Can I Detect Phones And Tablets Differently Using User Agent Header?

Oct 17, 2010

For my site I need to be able to tell the difference between when an Android tablet visits and when an Android phone visits. It needs to be detected before the page is sent to the user so using JavaScript to check the screen res isn't an option.At the moment I use this to detect an android device: stripos($ua,'android')Is there anything unique thar a tablet has in it's user agent?

HTC Incredible :: Apps On Phones Transferrable To Newer Phones

Jun 24, 2010

I was just having one of those moments of thought about switching my phone from an Incredible to the Droid X, still tossing the idea around, but say I do....what happens to the apps that I bought on the Incredible...would they be useable on say a newer Android based phone?

Android :: Cant React To Home Button

Nov 27, 2009

How can I get my app to react when the "Home" button is pushed in the emulator? The back button works fine. I tried logging something every time onPause or onStop is called, but the button isn't triggering anything. How can I react to this action? I did research and know that onKeyDown won't work either.

Android :: React To Screen_on Only When User Pressed Button

May 17, 2009

I have a BroadcastReceiver that receives SCREEN_ON. If the screen came on because the user pressed a button, I want to do something. However, if the screen was turned on by an app (e.g., alarm clock going off or SMS popup), then I don't want to do anything. Anyone know how I can differentiate between the two cases?

Android :: Implement Multiple Views That React To OnTouch?

Oct 10, 2010

Let's say I have MyActivity and inside my onCreate method I initialize MyBackgroundView, then MyPlayer1View then MyPlayer2View. I want to be able to touch the screen, figure out if I have touched Player1 or Player2 and then respond with changes to the players if I have touched them.

My problem is, where do I put the onTouchListener? Can only MyBackgroundView listen for touches, or can the players listen for touches too? If MyBackgroundView can only accept touches, do I need to call view.ontouchlistener that says, you have touched me, and I have a player at those coordinates, so I'll pass the motion event to the player and let it handle it? Or do call view.ontouchlistener in each of the players that says, you've touched me, now I will react to the motion event?

Android :: Images Render Very Differently

Jun 1, 2009

I am using OpenGL ES and drawing a triangle strip with 4 vertices. The texture I'm drawing was loaded from a PNG using BitmapFactory.decodeStream. I'm confused as to why my images look so bad. I took a screenshot and made the following image, which shows the on-device rendering on top and the actual image on bottom:

Any idea why there is a difference? I have tried a bunch of different settings but I can't keep it from looking bad.

Android :: Transparency On Views Behaving Differently In 1.5

Apr 25, 2009

I have a lot of Views where I have set a background image on the top LinearLayout and then I have nested a new linear layout below with a background that is semi-transparent. This works great in 1.1, but in 1.5 the transparency is just disregarded and this breaks my app as the text on top is now unreadable.

Is this a bug or a feature? Is there a better way of doing this? Very grateful for any tips!

Android :: Google Voice Ring Differently?

Nov 12, 2010

So I would like for my Google Voice number to ring differently than my regular carrier number. I give out the GV number for business use and my regular one for personal/friend use.

So does anyone know if it's possible to have a separate ringtone? I see under the GV settings area "Sync and notfications - Select Ringtone" but it doesn't appear to work when I call the number. Any ideas?

(I'm on android 2.1 if that matters.)

Android :: Porting Iphone App - If To Start Your App Again From Scratch What Would You Do Differently?

Jul 4, 2010

This questions comes as my team is about to under-go development for a mobile app targeting iphone, android and qt. We aim to complete the iphone version first, and then port to android and qt, and it would be great to know any tips or ideologies to grasp/employ from the outset, that would make the porting process as seamless as possible.

I'm sure there a few of you who have completed their iphone version of an app first, and then gone about developing an android version. I am keen to know any of the hurdles that you encountered, or things you wish you knew from the start.

More specifically, the app we are making will contain forms and some visuals(charts)

Android : Ant Vs Eclipse / Build Methods Are Behaving Differently?

Mar 15, 2010

The Eclipse build for my 1.6 application project is succeeding and the Ant build is failing. I'm looking for help on why they aren't behaving the same way.

We are developing on Mac OSX 10.5.8 with Eclipse 3.5 against SDK 1.6 + Google APIs. There are no setting changes in Eclipse, either at workspace or project level. Similarly, our ant is also a vanilla- flavored unmodified installation of 1.7.1. JDK is 1.5.0_22. The CLASSPATH environment variable is not set. JAVA_HOME is /Library/Java/ Home

The application was initially created by a team member using the Eclipse plugins. The application references two jar files, one of which has a dependency on javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlSeeAlso, which is not defined anywhere in our code or in android.jar. The other jar file has an explicit dependency on android.jar. I generated the Ant build file using android update.

The Eclipse project builds an apk and runs the application in the emulator. I think this is incorrect behavior.

The Android project fails to build. I think this is correct behavior. cannot access javax.xml.bind.annotation.XmlSeeAlso[javac] file javax/xml/bind/annotation/XmlSeeAlso.class not found

Any ideas as to why the two build methods are behaving differently? I would expect them both to fail.

Android : Dispatch TouchEvent Works Differently When Finger Hold On Screen?

Mar 29, 2009

I found event handler: dispatchTouchEvent(MotionEvent) works differently between G1 & emulator when finger is holding on touch screen.

I have a class inherited from RelativeLayout and override public boolean dispatchTouchEvent(MotionEvent event) method. After I touch & hold on the touch screen, in emulator I got MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN event only. But in G1, I got MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN first and then MotionEvent.ACTION_MOVE continuously, even if I try my best to hold still my finger tip.

I wonder if this is because there is pressure field in the MotionEvent. Because the blood pressure on finger tip changes continuously with heart beat, so no matter how still my finger is, the pressure value still changes. But I wonder if all kinds of touch screen have pressure factor in their touch event? Will all touch screen driver emit touch event continuously when finger is holding on the screen?

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 :: 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?

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 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.
