Just ordered online but now having second thoughts...help me with comparing
Just put thru an order to switch FROM T-Mobile to Sprint. I have the HTC G1, and I ordered the Samsung Transform and am anxiously awaiting it. Looks and feature wise, it is spot-on with what I want (and do), but after reading many reviews across the internet, I am starting to doubt my decision.
My main concern is would this be considered as a 'step up' from the G1? Is it any faster? That is my main concern, my G1 lags horribly anymore. Plus the battery life is incredibly bad, and it has no 3.5mm audio jack.
One upside to me switching: Sprint approved me for regular postpaid whereas I am stuck on Flexpay with T-Mobile.
First of all, I have this phone and actually like it (though coming from Windows Mobile it would be hard not to). However, it was bashed pretty hard by Engadget (http://www.engadget.com/2010/10/15/samsung-t ransform-review/) and definitely a take away from the review is this:
We also noticed that 3D apps chugged tremendously, and certain games (including Angry Birds) wouldn't run at all. We ran a few tests but soon got confirmation from Sprint itself: the Transform's S3C6410 processor doesn't support hardware acceleration for OpenGL.
So don't get this phone if you expecting to be able to play Angry Birds or any similar 3D accelerated games, I guess.
I just go this phone (upgrade from the HTC Hero). How do you set a Speed Dial associated to one of the 9 numeric keys? I only see the favorite (star) option which I personally do not like. Any info would be great.
I've been testing the Epic and one bid issue I've had with it is that Samsung placed the Speaker on the bottom of the phone such that when you're holding the phone in your hand and you try to use the speaker- it's useless cuz you're covering it up! Looks like the same issue here. How lame.
Reminds me of Moto doing that w/some of the Razors. The Zio doesn't have that problem nor to many other brands. Speaker is at the top where is should be! Come'on Samsung...
