First look at the HTC DesireFiled under: World;
When my HTC Has arrived it is time to describe his first impressions with an Android device of the “second generation”. The Galaxy was used as a convenient device An acceptable Android phone that my claim to more or less just Android was but one way or another Macke – and especially the slow CPU – but nibbled a bit on the Nerve.
What you notice so if you're upgrading from an old to a new Galaxy Desire? As the DIY says Tim Taylor, the King so much? … “More power!” The quicker you realize CPU at all corners and edges of Android. Not just in games, or any complex applications, but also in everyday life, for example if you installed software. Depended significantly advance the mobile applications and the subsequent installation, apps are now installed in no time.
Is significantly faster now also own the browser works. On the Galaxy I had to use Opera Mini because of the Android browser was a true worm. Now websites with the Android browser, or even with the just released full version of Opera will be loaded within seconds. The opening of “normal” web pages does so much more fun.
Contributed by HTC Sense interface confused in my eyes when upgrading from an older “vanilla” version of Android anything. I really like about the rather overloaded phone application, not really. In the top of your video can you make yourself an idea of HTC Sense.
Flash? Better not!
Is also annoying Adobe Flash on Android. HTC packs a stripped down version called Flash of Light House on the Desire for some time and there is even a small flash as a “full version” as a beta for Android. Both are pretty useless in the browser: While running Flash content, but one looks for example, videos on Spiegel Online, so this jerk as a slide show.
In addition one must still grapple with big traffic and wasting flash banners in your browser. I could also observe that a Vimeo video flash brought the whole device to crash. Flash is useful only for mobile devices processed pages. pocketnow.com is to come to a similar conclusion.
New apps? Skype! Proper Games
The Galaxy were now some applications are no longer as demanding “modern” apps often at least Android 2.1. Examples would be Skype, Adobe Reader and many games. Sometimes it was with the Galaxy a bit “depressing” when an interesting application appeared on the market, but once again she was not available for older androids.
Skype for Android
Currently I've already seen Skype. I have done to convince only one call over WLAN and Skype me there was not. The tone was composed and often the quality of the audio signal was not outstanding. Whether it was up to me or to my conversation partner, I need to find out more.
It is also a bit annoying that you can not simply stop Skype. Once started as a process Skype itself nestles in the status bar. Skype can be exited only by the state to “logged off” sets, which requires several clicks through menus.
Are games like Angry Birds or FIFA World Cup. I do not have much time to play, but it's amazing what one can thus get out of this little box. Angry Birds I've played briefly and I must say that it's been fun.
What is still up?
The most important thing in my mind that Android 2.x has finally passed his childhood illnesses. Thus, for example, the voice search to work properly. One can now easily objector as an address in the navigation. For the Galaxy, there was even this function, but it was very buggy. Also, there is now no more hangers, which occurred repeatedly in more complex applications such as navigation.
For me important is that finally the WLAN is turned on again after a long standby reliable. The Galaxy with Android 1.6 I was always first off and wireless on again, to again have a wireless connection.
Complacent? To first-generation Android devices are still primarily for users who communicate over the Internet and synchronize their data. Whether by mail or chat, with newer device has one little advantage here. However, those who often times “new” Try it wants, the Galaxy will collide with a colleague and his age a thing or two times the limits of the equipment.
