that android phone has the most terrible sound quality. these goddamn things are PHONES, yet it's the shittiest part of the device, you can't fucking hear what people are saying.

I love all the red X in the iphone category. lol

The fact they want to control every thing you use is the reason I did not want a iphone. No flash player? Plus other draw backs. The only think I am jealous of is the standby battery time. But not being able to remove the battery easily on the iphone is another annoyance. I upgraded to a larger battery on my EVO and have 15+ hours with 40% life left. With a lot of texting, web surfing and some GPS use. I can't complain.

btw, old but fun article. lol link

Not wanting to be left out, Sprint announced this morning that it's working on the Android 2.2 update, and that the Evo 4G will get it.

Quote:
As work on finalizing the software is under way, Sprint expects to launch Android 2.2 in the near future. It also will be available as an upgrade on the recently launched HTC EVO 4G.

With the Android 2.2 upgrade, customers can expect improvements to include the following benefits: updates to user interface, improved EAS Support, improved browser performance, including Flash 10x Support, voice dialing over Bluetooth and application storage on external memory.


No exact date on when we'll start seeing updates roll out -- they say "in the near future -- so we'll all have to sit patiently and wait. Let us know how that works out for ya.

Hey Mook, have you used the Mobile Hot Spot yet?

Is that included with the 4G coverage or is it a pay extra thing?

its extra...but i believe sprint gave all evo owners the first month free before you have to move to a subscription thing. i dont get good 4g reception in elgin (but i do in carpentersville and algonquin, go figure)...so it wouldnt be worth it.

i speed tested a full 4g signal tho and i was upwards of 5mb/s.

Ah, that makes sense.

He does use WiFi because he doesn't get 4G in the house or at work so he hasn't really been experiencing the benefits.

He has been researching higher capacity batteries already though.

i bought the next step up seidio (from stock). it adds a bit more juice but nothing substantial.

tell him to turn off extra widgets like friendstream. make sure google talk isnt running and is set to not sign in automatically. ummm....what else.

his phone is probably set for a gsm network so its more than likely searching for gsm towers constantly. tell him to go into the market, download the "network" widget. then load it up, hit menu > select radio band (which will make a force close pop up, just hit close, doesnt do anything) > then go down and choose cdma auto prl > then hit home. he'll need to do that after every reboot...but he shouldnt be rebooting often anyway.

some people say turning "data always on" off helps conserve juice. i have my phone set that way. just keeps the phone from always using data. doesnt effect email or anything like that. tho some people say it causes their phone to randomly reboot...if his does that, turn it back on.

oh, and also (this is super gay). the phone has a small issue where it doesnt apparently trickle charge. so if you leave it on the charger overnight, once it reaches 100% (usually in 2 hours) it runs off battery. tell him when he takes it off the charger in the morning (itll probably drop 6-8% pretty fast), to put it right back on until the indicator goes green. he'll have more juice for the rest of the day. helps a ton.

this isnt for ALL phones so he might have gotten lucky if he doesnt notice that issue.
