People looking for a thread about robots turn away now.

 

Others join in.

 

 

First off i have a couple of questions.

 

Without rooting is there anyway to take screenshots?

Can you change phone contacts to google contacts without re-creating? I imported them from outlook and it makes them phone contacts which obvious don't sync with google servers.

 

Which apps do you recommend?

 

So far my most useful  apps are.

 

Taskiller free.

You can get the memory card problem from just pulling the usb wire out.. So everytime "unmount" on the phone, and then right click the usb icon down the bottom and disconnect it there before pulling the wire out and you should never have the problem again.

Yeah, by end of year there will be dualcore 1gig ram phones out, motorolla are pushing it hard so are samsung, so are htc, throwing out high end phones like no ones business, and they dont want the os holding it back..

 

Its gonna be a real test, will google still support 2.1 and release updates for any errors and the likes they find etc, will they have a high end and low end os, will it fragment the android platform too much.

 

Then in the other corner you have meego in alpha, Nokia and intel gearing up for a christmas launch of high end nokia phones with a swish linux meego on it.

 

Sony are pushing 3d hard, if they dont have a phone with two 720p camera on the back for filming in 3d by christmas Ill be surprised, and Ill think they really missed a trick.

If you're using the stock ROM you get about 99% of the things available to the Desire, however you don't get some things like live wallpapers, 3D galleries or some HTC widgets like Friendstream. Only way to get them on the Hero is to flash a custom ROM on.

Can the Hero handle the live wallpapers? Surely that would be a massive drain on battery. Unbranded 2.1 ftw :)

Live wallpapers can be a massive drain on battery anyway, they do work, they can create a bit of lag depending and drain the battery depending, hence why you need a custom rom.

I haven't tried any for a long time, but when I did using the standard 528MHz clock speed the Nexus One lwp worked ok, I'd imagine with an overclock to around 700Mhz a good few should work.

I would love to update my phone but not really sure if I should. Its a Hero btw. Will I lose any  thing? contacts, apps, pictures?? If it does go wrong will I be able to format the phone back to original settings?
