If you're the type of person who frequently swaps microSD cards and are looking at the Sprint HTC Evo 4G, then this video might be a little painful. First, the card's under the battery. That's not all that unusual, though it's still a tad unwelcome. But getting at the card on the Evo 4G's a little tricky. First there's a tab that needs to be pried up to unseat the card. And that's easy. But actually removing the card is a bit more difficult given its placement. Long fingernails may help (and forget about it if you're a nail-biter), but even then it's pretty tough, and we needed tweezers to actually remove the card.
Getting it back in is a little easier, but it still might take a couple of tries. It's just one of those trade-offs we have to come to live with in the smartphone world.
One thing that seems to be a common complaint is "My pictures just look crappy." Many mess with settings, lighting, and more but nearly all of us have overlooked one very obvious thing, which Locoman from our forums reminds us. He just brought us some amazing moon pictures from hi HTC Droid Incredible, and now he brings us the simple tip: Clean your camrea. Simply take a cleaning cloth, any microfiber cloth should work just fine, and clean off your lens, and voila, clearer pictures. Could it be any simpler? Check out the improvement seen in the example pictures here, and be sure to use the forums to share any other tips you may have for us!
Ed. note: OK, here's the deal. This accidentally got published before we meant for it to. We've pulled it from the front page but are leaving it published with this addendum. Cause that's how journalism works. If and when we get this method worked out, we'll get a new post up soonest. Our apologies. The person responsible for the screw-up (erm, me) has been flogged. - Phil
There seems to be some question around the 'tubes -- is the Froyo I see everyone using for T-Mobile or for AT&T? We can answer that one (and we love questions that we can answer! ). Yes. It works on both carriers. Click past the jump to read some more, and get the lowdown.
Android phones are big on cloud computing, so you gotta stay connected. Smartphone geeks like to toss the word "tethering" around, but what exactly is it and how do you do it? Follow along after the jump and we'll break it down for you.
Hey everybody! Welcome to another week of Inside Android. This week we're gonna look at the things most everybody will change on their phones -- wallpaper and ringtones. There might even be a little something extra thrown in for people using stock Android as well. Place your tray in the upright position, fasten your seatbelts and continue past the break.
It's been a busy, busy week of Android news, with tons of information coming from every angle from leaks, to official releases and tons of Sprint Evo 4G coverage. Some new devices appear to be on their way in, and a few big-hitters from Google appear to be on their way out. Sprint Nexus One dreams are crushed, statues and screenshots of Froyo appear, and plenty of new applications have been reviewed. It was fast an furious, but don't worry, all you have to do is check below for links to the coverage.
Howdy! It's me again, and this week we're gonna talk about something near and dear to all of us -- battery life. It's always at the tip of everyone's tongue (especially as new phones are released), and all the information out there is enough to make a person lose his or her mind. Hopefully together we can work through it all, separate the fact from the fiction, and figure out how to keep everything out of the red.
Prepare your beverages, smoke 'em if you got 'em, and follow the jump so we can figure this out together.
A question we get quite often from you guys is "How do I add a second gmail account?" Consider that question answered in the video above. Note that I'm adding a Google Apps account, which is the same as a normal gmail account, just with a different domain name.
Anyhoo, it takes about 30 seconds to do, and you can sync all of your e-mails and contacts, just like with a "normal" gmail account.
Hey everybody! This week we're gonna go back to basics and show our support to those who switched over to Android by picking up the HTC Droid Incredible on Verizon. Now I know a lot of this is common knowledge to you salty Android vetrans, but think back to the first time you put your mitts on a G1 or the Motorola Droid. Hopefully, there was someone around to help you get acclimated and into the swing of all things Android. If not, then you know exactly why we do what we do here at Android Central.
So welcome newcomers, kick back and have a look to see just what you got yourself into, and I'll bet you feel even better about your choice when we're finished.
