PostSubject: G1... My Pros, My Cons   Wed Jul 01, 2009 12:55 pm

Due to severe tendinitis, I copy & paste my other forum post about what I do and don't like thus far.

Pros



Menu/sub-menus are WONDERFUL

Ease of use is great

UI is AWESOME

MicroSD card is easy to retrieve (better than the Behold)

Control buttons on main face are confortable and flush

On board system tutorial for the keyboard was brief and to the point. Keyboard only?? (That's it?!?!)









Cons



a little big and clunky but not so bad as I have the enV99000

backlighting on keyboard not bright enough (for me), esp on the right side in numbers are moreso

TeleNav didn't work any better on this

No flash or user controls on camera

Track ball is too sensitive, actually annoying but am trying...

Pattern password for phone lock vs numeric is kinda strange

No font style nor size option

Battery life short for such a powerful phone

Pros (cont'd)



Sound quality is sweet

Volume was loud enough for me music wise

Notifications (WICKED)

3 panel main screen display (WICKED)

Drag n Drop icons/apps (SWEET)

Neatness of icons

Flush operation buttons on front of phone

Near flush camera button & volume rocker

The adaptor for the headset

MicroSD included

USB cord included

Short getting started booklet included

Downloadable user manual. (phone plus it's user manual IN the box - would have weighed a ton.

Android start-up a wee faster.

Ugly andriod gone at start-up

Shut down FAST

Headset dual middle cord with adjuster. (NIIICE)







Cons (cont'd)



Volume a wee low with Plantronics Bluetooth headset

Trackball (mixed - has been useful though)

Back of phone has a weird feel that my Tendonitis does not like.

Keyboard you have to slide open to use. (since getting the Cupcake update, never use it... ever)

Bulky b/c of slide keyboard

Double confirmation for shut down

the font style and size can be modified if you gain root access!

Ok, refresh my memory. Where is it that you can change the depth of vibration? As in how intense (or not) it vibrates... I remember doing it on the main screen but can't recall how. I had to tap all these places for something too but can't recall what that was or where I activated it. Hope you understand what I'm talking about on both accounts. Won''t see it till the PM, so thanks in advance.

Cons cont'd

No Bluetooth support for phone to phone yet. I tried to pair it with my enV to get stuff off of it, it connected and that's it.

I had more but will add/edit later.

I'm getting the hang of using the trackball now and it's not as bad as I'd thought. I'm finding it very useful when online mainly.

All the apps I've seen, nothing UNLESS, you're phone is "rooted" I'm thinking. I've searched online and it seems no one has any other reply except that it only pairs bluetooth headsets. I think someone got it to pair with a keyboard. If there's a solution, I'll be grateful for it. I have tried with 2 different phones, nothing.
