I always found juice defender to be a pain in the ass - it would turn off data when you need it and be difficult to switch the thing off to get data back on. I understand there are some other alternatives, does anyone use any other battery saving apps they would recommend?

Can say the same for any "battery saver" in the marketplace. Most of those have helped me out for a day or so, then suddenly it makes the battery life nearly twice as bad.

I have been impressed with the camera. Quality is very good in both photo / video recording, however I have noticed when I move there can be some slight stutter. Has anyone else noticed this, or have any suggestions / solutions?

Here's a video I recorded earlier: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/61516329/VIDEO0004.mp4

The quality appears to be slightly compressed, and I'm not entirely sure if it demonstrates the issue I've mentioned... but just in case someone was looking for a video demonstration for the device.

Meh not something major id be worried out. Looks fine even thought you can see the squares once in a while as you mentioned does look like compression. Maybe its just dropping the amount of detail to keep up with the constantly moving content. For the most part it looks acceptable and you can make out nice crisp details for the majority of it. Though I wouldn't be using drop box integration Drop box is quite slow compared to SkyDrive for downloading and uploading.

I'm going to go for the HTC One X Clear Hard Shell Case Cover HC C700. Subtle case with a good lip protecting the camera.

Did anyone get this cover? What's it like?

Edit: Ah crap, just checked it there and it's sold out.

I see from your notification bar you are using Juice Defender.....


Yes I was using it on my Desire and it worked pretty well. Not sure about it now tbh. I might leave it on for another while to see does it help battery life.


Used it on other phones and found the same as they guys, annoyed me more in the end so removed it!

Congrats on the new phone!

So let's see:
yours: 12 months x €35 + €329 phone = €749
online offer says "Discount applied for a whole year" so: (12 months x €25.41) + (6 months x €30.50) + €299 phone = €786.92
A little difference your way, and tied for only 12 months! I'm off to CPW.

How do you ask for this package? Last I spoke to them (Blanch SC) they said it's 18 months only.

Was this the price for moving your number to meteor or were you on them already?
have a htc DHD out of contract since 5 of may just rang there
was gonna get the phone online on their site on the 400mins, but I think I may try going on the 200 mins to see how things work out the last while don't think I've been using all my mins, and can always use an app to use up mywebtexts

Downloaded it as well and all was working great until I noticed wifi tethering doesn't seem to be working. Have tried both the included hotspot app and barnacle. Would you mind checking to see if you have the same issue?


Don't have anything to tether at the minute, but tomorrow I'll take the wifi settings off something and try tethering and let you know.

If that's directed at me, I was meteor PAYG so it didn't help with the price.

ok thanks, my contract is up on 5th may. so I will prob get a o2 PAYG for a day and then move back to meteor as a new custoemr, just checked their website and to biuy the phone its 40e cheaper to come as a new customer. but im nearl thinking if I was paying the 329 I'd nearly jsut buy the phone as payg and go on one of their sim only plans.. also note that with fatcheese you can get up to €40 back off meteor..

Careful - I've heard that some "new customer" promotions are contingent on you moving your number to a contract to the network for the first time

Dont forget 25% off your monthly commitment with Meteor. The OH used it no problem. Can't be used in CPW.

Switched over to LeedDroid HD last night and this is working now. Also had an issue with Bluetooth not transferring the address book to my minikit slim carkit. That's now sorted as well. There also are a couple of nice extras like a battery counter on the status bar and he's got rid of the "3 dots" context menu giving the full screen res to apps. I'll be sticking with LeeDroid from now on I think.

Any other Rom recommendations? I used to use LeeDroid on my desire a few years back and found it pretty good.

What is the process like to unlock the bootloader and install new roms?
