    I got the phone, but I'm having an issue. When I go to the app market I'm told "there are no android phones associated with this account". I've searched around for a solution but I can't find anything. They all say to use the app on your phone but that's what I'm doing.
    I've now managed to get the app market working, but it appears to be the old one rather than google play. not sure if thats a problem

    also the camera on this thing is amazing!

    I have noticed that google play is faster than the android market app.

    Also this is going to be the last four hours with my mini pro until I send it off for fixing...

    Well after looking at the specs for once annotated eating apples, I was like on the specs. Quad core graphics? Like the ps vita. That hd screen, better than pretty much any android tablet to date.

    Flash the entire ROM without bootloaders in Odin again. If that fails, flash a version with bootloaders and pray you don't get a failed flash midway through.
    I managed to find a rom with a bootloader, and it works now. Thanks for your help

    So I just factory reset my phone, ready to give it in.

    Hey, will they accuse me of rooting my phone/installing different ROM or whatever therefore voiding my warrenty because I reset or flashed it twice?

    as long as it's on a stock rom and unrooted, you should be okay.

    My HTC Desire S has stopped auto-capitalising letters after punctuation marks. I googled the problem but found nothing useful to me.

    It's not a terrible problem, it just gets annoying having to press shift whenever I start a new sentence.

    It's going to be a grim week or so without my Mini Pro...

    I'll laugh if they send me a new one the next day

    What are the chances of them sending me a brand new one? I mean there are a ton of problems with it.

    Problems sent:
    1. Electrostatic Noise on both speakers
    2. Defective phone body causing clicky back panel
    3. Dead pixels on screen
    4. (I'll add) Touchscreen lag, not responsive

    They are basically replacing most of the phone.

    I recommend anyone who feels like they're experiencing less than satisfactory battery life to let their phone run down all the way to zero. You'll be surprised when your phone hangs at one percent for two hours. And it will make your phone have better battery reporting stats after that.

    I think that's thanks to your slow processor, and not a problem with the phone itself. Same with the creaking, it's just cheap plastic.

    I was installing uninstalling something, couldn't press okay, ended up using the keyboard to press enter.

    I believe the touchscreen fails...

    Also, for the creaking, ive tried other back plates from other people (it's what happens when I help people choose phones ) and it still has that problem, so it's the phone's bodys fault

    Unfortunately, pulling the battery didn't do anything. I fell asleep after pulling it last night, plugged it back in this morning, and the battery is still plummeting.

    Halp :c
    Try getting another kernel/ROM, flash at 100%.

    Sony's firmware is bloated, thats why there is input lag. Get CM7. The uninstall thing was just a bug, nothing to do with the screen.

    Doesn't do shit, you have to get the phone into learn mode for HTC phones and for Samsung phones they don't need to be calibrated anyway.

    If that's what wiping the battery stats fixes, then that's not my problem. When my battery is at 1%, it's definitely at 1%


    I also know that my rom isn't the problem, because I was using cm7 before, and the battery was better than the default Sense rom.

    So it's most likely the tiamat kernel. I'm hesitant to try one of those "trickle charge" roms, because knowing my luck I'll be the one that gets his phone battery turned into a bomb because of it.

    So what's a good battery life preserving kernel for my Evo 4g?

    Just try the stock CM7 kernel?

    Sounds unlikely, I would've just pulled the battery at 4.2v to calibrate.

    Shit, I'm still suffering from the Apple fan disease, I want that new iPad, even though I like Android more and sold all my Apple stuff :(

    Though I'm also waiting for that unannounced 11.6 Galaxy Tab.

    Edited:

    Also, HTC have really stepped their game up this year.
    I wonder what samsung is going to do about this.
    Hopefully they will get their shit together and stop releasing so fucking many useless identical low-range phones..
    Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Gio, Galaxy Mini, Galaxy Three, Galaxy Bullshit...
    seriously anything past the iphone 4s dpi is a waste of money

    also, I've heard yesterday that the high battery drain on the SGS and SGS II on Android 2.x is caused by applications which use sensors

    and I think I might confirm that, I've used that sleep tracking app which uses the accelerometer, left the phone plugged in overnight like I always do, and I found the phone extremely hot when I woke up (really scared me)

    I know, I plan to root when the warrenty is done (Sept. 2012) so I can just root it and install CM7, or just remove all of the crap from my carrier and Sony Ericsson.
