Still waiting for those phones to come out. I'm in the market for a smartphone right now, and the end of the year is still far away...
Updating my phones as we speak
Just done my phone, nice and easy, now to see if if there are any changes since 7712
I'd update my HD7, but I'd have to find it under all the dust and charge it up. Worst phone purchase ever.
I have been at "Please wait while we determine the amount of disk space required to complete the update." for quite a while now.
I may have a lot of content on my device, though I did delete several videos before I started the update process.
My device is a developer unlocked (isv) mango pre-release version.
Update: My Zune desktop is still stuck at determining space, but the phone itself says it has upgraded.
Update 2: I canceled Zune desktop, then a second update, isv clean up, is now running.
Update 3: All updates successful
The speaker is too quiet, it's got the typical sh1tty-quality HTC camera, and it has one of the tiniest batteries I've ever seen. Overall, I'm far from satisfied with the purchase, but it still offers a far better experience than my Android phone.
Meh. Sprint still hasn't pushed it out.
I had picked up an HTC Arrive, and returned it so that I could use my old BlackBerry. I really felt out of place with all the social integration stuff, that I didn't care to participate in. It seemed to be a total productivity killer. I've disabled my Facebook account on several occasions, but in the end found it easier to just create an Outlook rule to delete any emails from Facebook.
I really don't care for Metro, the pivot control, or the tiles. However, I am really impressed with the quality of the namespaces, classes, and methods. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
I'm glad to see Microsoft's being able to get all the carriers to test Mango so quickly and sign-off on the roll-out of the update. The NoDo roll-out was a near disaster in comparison.
LOLz, this is so strange, but, I couldn't BK my phone for the second update (I suppose the first is just NoDo). Always gets to 3% and the phone restarts. But, after I removed a lot of movies, spongebob, music, I am fine now. Doing the final updates now.
I am guess they think my USB is too slow because it takes a long time to 3%. Seems like they only monitor % as speed test instead of real bandwidth. Or maybe it is slower to transfer those contents that I deleted? I am not sure, but, seems like it is better to remove many stuff before BK.
The Zune 'force' trick has never worked for me -- possibly due to low bandwidth, I can never get the timing right (either 'your phone is up to date' or 'there was a problem checking, make sure internet is connected' errors). Will probably have to wait for 'official' release slot from phone provider.
The Samsung Focus S is essentially the Samsung Galaxy S II running mango.
