    I have a HTC Hero which is an Android Phone..

    "Android" is put simply just an Operating System for a smartphone which was created by Google. Much more user friendly than Apple's iPhone and its associated software.

    Another bonus is that all the apps that you pay for on the iPhone are free on Android devices. Andriod uses an interface called "Sens UI" too so your phone can be intergrated to every social network website and many other sites too with live updates etc

    Hope this helps a little

    PMSL!!!! hahaha!

    Not all "Cod Heads" are as privileged as me I guess ;)

    Where you from mate?

    Back on topic regarding the HTC, Battery life is a pain if you fiddle with the phone all day, main reason is that, unlike the iPhone, the HTC/Android phones can run many apps at the same time and they still run after closing them down.

    You can download an app called "Task Killer" which will solve this problem and make your battery last longer :)

    I'm from near Saltburn mate. Worked in Whitby for years when I was younger.


    Task Killer eh? I have 'Juice Defender' is that similar do you know? It seemed to improve my battery life once I added it.

    Senseui is only found on htc phones it's proprietary, you can get beautiful widgets that mimicks it though

    Android is great, you can do pretty much whatever to it unlike ios

    I have a desire HD and the android software is absolutely awful. 

    Constant crashes and delays and yesterday it deleted all my sms messages. Loads of important ones too. This is the second time its happened and has been reported on android forums

    Then root your phone and flash a different rom onto it, like flb r2 g10 or japanese jellyfish 9.

    Most stock roms are buggy tbh, but once flashed they are excellent.

    How does their app store compare to Apples? I thought the iPhone store was one of the strongest points of the phone but looked at Android MArketplace online which looks **** in comparison.

    Not really it's tricky. You need to flash clockwork mod onto it, then you put the zipped rom file onto your sd card. Then reboot the phone holding the volume down.

    There clockwork will boot and you look on the sd card for the zip rom file, and install it from there.

    That's the simple way of explaining it.

    Anyway have a nose here.

    It is ****...poeple dont get it..Google dont give two flying fcuks about Apps....Googles money is made from advertising...end of..you can get alot of similar Apps on their App stoes (they dont have one universal App stores theirs a few), but they are rigged with lots of Ads.

    And then they have NO ONE to test the app to make sure it will work on X/Y and Z devices...so they tend to be even more buggy.

    THe entire ethos of Droid is now up the left.....very simply, with x version of Driod out being more fragmentation, developers are slowly  uliing away now..and the proof is in the pudding...looking at figures, the attacment rate is very very very very very low to the average Droid user PAYING for a full App...with Apple its something like 10x as much....so whatsa developer gonna do?

    But Driod can run flash.....right?.....well...a new (another!)..Flash update from adobe was just released...they now have to incorperate 2 flash versions..as Flash jsut doesnt play ball with a Touch UI..and even better...the new flash is in no way optimised for mobile battery life....im reading how more users are miffed at the terrible battery life..or the fact it just doesnt work right/ crashes etc..(usual flash bugs on any system)

    And lastly..Honeycomb.....and the Motoriloa Xoom that I actually feel sorry for..briliiant hardware wasted....it now has an almighty 19 Apps for it.

    To be honest Im surprised Google hasnt thought this out more...cause if it goes tits up...theirs literally very very little in competition which is sorly needed on the market...is putting pressure on Apple to come up with something very different in iOS5..otherwise they would have jsut stuck with grid upon grid of Apps...I wanna see sommin new now.
