The screen is gorgeous (indoors - outside in sunlight it's pretty terrible, as are all OMLEDs). Some of the market apps are really nice. The google apps just work.
Yeah that's a good deal but I don't want to spend £25 per month. £10 is fine, I'm happy to pay more for the phone, I was already considering buying one SIM free.
Is there a way to display calender entries on the home page of Android phones? I really like the feature on Nokia handsets.
Games I've found (on initial inspection) are lacking compared to the iPhone. But then I don't do much gaming on my phones tbh.
The calendar entries was something I was after too. I only went to iPhone from S60 once intelliscreen (unsigned jailbreak software) came along. I couldn't manage without upcoming appointments/reminders on my lock screen.
Android offers various looking calendar widgets you can pop on a home screen. It has a agenda view, or a single upcoming appointment view which is smaller (these might be HTC specific widgets). However, it doesn't natively display upcoming appointments on the lock screen, which is a real shame imo. You can install Flyscreen which allows you to add widgets to the lock screen, but sadly the calendar widget (only one at the moment) is just a month view. You still need to tap on the day to see what you've got on.
In this respect, I'm a little dissapointed - but there's lots of people (including me) asking for a better calendar widget on the flyscreen forum.
There's some really good contract deals to be had online. I got mine for £5.99 for the phone then 18mths at £25 for 300mins, 300txts and unlimited web. From mobilephonesdirect.co.uk - I think it's now actually free on this tarriff with them.
