Android Phone

Do you also play with non-PlayStation devices? Do you enjoy playing as a plumber saving a princess? Or some bald marines? Or maybe you want to play using the touchscreen?

Consider getting other Android Phones pre if you want to fully embrace an Android Phone.
Ang issue lang nya is the Phone always restarts if she tries to use the Camera. Pero pag nag restart na, magagamit na nya ang Camera. Though hindi pa nya na-uupdate sa Froyo.

Android still has horrible text messaging bugs that'll get you fired, busted, or otherwise embarrassed

mga sir totoo ba yung nasa article? does it apply to android phones here in PH?

I was looking at a Galaxy 5 yesterday kasi and would like to know feedback from owners here as well, thanks!

Galaxy 5 best entry level android phone :agree:

Texting via touchscreen does take time getting used to, more so for a smaller screen like that of Galaxy 5 compared to other high end android phones. Whats nice about galaxy 5 is that 2.1 eclair na sya, and reportedly it can support 2.2 froyo update. Medyo exaggeration naman yata yun article. Id say its a learning curve for the user rather the "bugs" itself.

Hi. China Android Tablet user here, a.k.a. Apad

Fairly limited nga yung use ng Apad. My wife and I bought a 7" Apad each. We had a fair amount of research before thinking of purchasing this unit versus an Archos tablet. And we finally decided that the Apad should do just fine.

My purpose for the APAD:
1) Ebooks - epub reader works ok, as long as the formatting works.
2) Web clippings for my work - I bookmark and save my research material for my system design and implementation work. Later, I use the APAD at work for reference. Sometimes I quote my material during presentation, to a client, showing the APAD.
3) Email checking - I have 3 emails to check every now and then and reading it on the smartphone is an eyestrain.
4) I read manga on it - hehe
5) A lighter unit to carry around while in bed.

My wife meanwhile uses the APAD for an entirely different purpose
1) Surfing the net about baby care and development
2) Storing pictures for future family gatherings - she loves to show our baby's pics
3) If I'm not mistaken, doon yata niya tinatago yung secret recipe niya for that killer Pesto.


Having a lighter unit to bring around, gives me more time for my 7-month old baby. Dati kasi, I had to lug around a laptop while taking care of the toddler - ngayon, dinuduyan ko baby ko sa balikat ko with my right hand holding up the APAD looking up research material. On some days when we go out to the malls, bringing with me a 2kg laptop+accessories with the baby's stuff is a complete hassle so the APAD becomes my choice for casually surfing the net while I sip my coffee and entertain the baby on a carriage.


What the APAD is not:
- We also decided that the APAD is not for games. Its processor speed and memory are definitely not something to brag about. Tama nga yung last post, not very responsive yung screen. For us, gaming is restricted to the PC, PSP and the PS3
- It's not a long term device. Battery only lasts for 3.5 hours - even shorter when using high brightness and WiFi. The unit is not a permanent device to replace your current laptop/pc - it merely helps and sometimes enhances your internet experience.

good news for Android phone users
SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT TO UNVEIL
“PLAYSTATION®SUITE,” DELIVERING THE WORLD
OF PLAYSTATION® TO ANDROID™ BASED PORTABLE DEVICES

Simultaneously Launching “PlayStation®Certified” License Program to Provide
PlayStation® Content and Development Support for Android™ Based Portable Devices

Tokyo, January 27, 2011– Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) today unveiled “PlayStation®Suite” (PS Suite), delivering the PlayStation® experience to Android™ based portable devices*1. Through this entirely new initiative, users will be able to enjoy PlayStation content on an open operating system for the first time in PlayStation history.
In the dramatically evolving and diversifying mobile market, the number of users who enjoy games casually on a variety of devices including mobile phones, smart-phones and tablet PCs, has been increasing significantly. By offering “PlayStation quality” content to this rapidly growing market, SCE will not only deliver the PlayStation experience to a wider base of users around the globe, but will also be able to offer game developers and publishers the potential to further expand their business opportunities to these devices.
In providing the PlayStation experience on Android based portable devices, SCE will commence a “PlayStation®Certified” license program for hardware manufacturers. Through this program, SCE will offer necessary support, including development support as well as logo licensing, to ensure the delivery of PlayStation quality experience across various devices.

On the software front, SCE plans to provide PS Suite content within this calendar year, starting with original PlayStation games*2 (PS one® classics) that will allow users to enjoy “PlayStation quality” gameplay on their Android based portable devices. SCE also plans to open PlayStation®Store where users will be able to download content in an easy to use environment, directly via the Android based portable devices. Moreover, SCE will provide a new game development environment in an effort to ensure new and compelling content is delivered on PS Suite, which will also offer opportunities for a wider base of developers and publishers to further expand their business on various portable devices.

Newly developed content for PS Suite can also be enjoyed on the next generation portable entertainment system (codename: NGP), which SCE announced today. Users who have never experienced PlayStation content can get a taste of the PlayStation experience through PS Suite and from there, they can enjoy the ultimate portable entertainment experience that is only possible on NGP.

SCE will vigorously enhance the entertainment world delivering the PlayStation experience to a wider base of users.

*1 Android™ 2.3 or beyond is required.
*2 PS one game console software title. We will announce the tiles when ready.

ZTE Blade kung meron dyan. Bang for the buck smartphone, £50-£90 lang. Kung makakahanap ka ng old version mas ok yun dahil AMOLED screen, yung mga bago daw TFT nalang eh.

Ayos lang naman sya. If you know how to root and everything okay sya. Hindi sya dapat icompare sa iphone pero ang HTC products is pwede mo ibato buhay na buhay pa rin dahil quality wise OA sya sa tibay. Madalas nasasyang warranty ko. Been using 3 HTC products na wala ako masabi. Nagka Iphone na rin ako parehas lang naman sa touchscreen.

All capacitive screens naman iphone and HTC Desire HD.

If you want to beat the iphone4, Yung HTC HD7, kung marami ka alam sa tweaking, bagay ka dito.

My brother has the iphone4, and I have the HTC Desire HD2 ( pero nakareserve na to benta benta lol pero downgrade muna ako sa mini-desire hehe ). Both nakalikot ko na rin. So far mas malaki screen ko at mamarami akong pwedeng gawin sa android OS dahil parang linux lang yan hehe. Pero kung papogian at pang social climber shoot na shoot si iphone4 hahaha

One benefit of Rooting is you'll be the superuser of the phone, you can Overclock etc.

Research ka muna kung gusto mo mag root. I accidentally rooted my phone when installing a custom ROM, hindi ko naman kelangan. Custom ROM is all I need, it's blazing fast! crap yung official Samsung and Bell FW eh.

kung gsuto mo lang bumilis phone mo, Custom ROM is enough. pero some phones ata kelangan rooted to run Custom ROMS. Sa xda-developers site madaming resources.

Jailbreaking, i can't say much, never had an iphone. I all know is pag jailbroken libre na apps?? sa Android kahit Rooted, you still need to buy paid apps.

Well, about rooting/Jailbreaking the phone, halos legal na sya eh. Good thing about rooting your phone is para kang may admin sa CP mo. You can tweak your phone sa kahit anong gusto mong paraan. But please do remember to follow the correct ways to root your phone pwedeng ma brick yan. Ikaw rin.

As for Jailbreak sa iphone, same as rooting lang sya. You just have to know ALOT regarding your phone talaga. If talagang techie ka and sobrang thorough searching ka well, maganda talaga kalalabasan ng iphone mo compared sa rooting android :D Well, I've done some customed themes on both OS kaya isa lang masasabi ko. Wala sila halos pinagkaiba nasa CP mo lang yan :D

Anong HTC android phone sir?

Kung 8MP yan baka yan yung HTC Desire HD :) The one na nagamit ko :) currently sold na :D. Pero kukuha ako ulit neto.

So far no problems ako regarding HTC Desire HD. Malaki lang talaga sya compared sa typical na CP's.
