I know this is slightly off topic, talking about Android apps against Apple, but the apps are an integral part of the device so here goes...Apple seems to have better choice and more of the Android versions seem slightly rough round the edges - perhaps a result of all the hardware variants they have to satisfy? Still, they tend to work OK, so no real complaints, just a bit less polished on occasion than what I'm used to. On balance, I prefer Apple on this one. However, two honourable mentions to brilliant apps - I would recommend PlayerPro music app which is miles better sound quality and UI than the Android stock player, and also Catch which I settled on after trialling Evernote and Springpad as well.
The device itself is heavier than expected, but feels fairly rugged. Borderline weight for e-reading I'd say. The seven inch screen is just lovely - a thing of beauty - and really responsive - at least as good as iPod Touch. Overall, it really feels well-made and I'm happy with it. Taking off the top slot for MicroSD card is tricky at first, but I found the best technique is to press the middle of the removable cover reasonably firmly with one finger then slide up, rather than try to press all along the cover or at both sides simultaneously. It actually comes off pretty easily once you've figured it for the first time, but I wouldn't force it as the little plastic pads which lock it in place look eminently breakable! The MicroSD slots in really easily, with a satisfying click.
I've begun to find the stylus useful for annotating PDFs - for instance I annotated city maps copied from the web for a recent short break, with notes of key places to go and how to get there. Worked a treat. Can see me using the stylus and PDF annotation for work meetings also.
Battery life is so-so. If you want to get acceptable battery then you might need to look at disabling wi-fi, GPRS etc etc and stick it on Airplane when not using, but that's sensible stuff anyway. Juice Defender might assist and I await the results - I got the 'Plus' version. Because it's a bit thirsty, I now habitually keep it topped up when not using it, so it rarely falls beneath, say, 50%.
Within Gingerbread I noticed if you go into Tablet Information, there was a cell radio function which was eating about one-third of battery life for no apparent purpose. There is a fix for this, although the fix sometimes reverses itself so you need to periodically check. The fix involves the calculator (has to be in landscape mode, not portrait!) and entering a series of symbols and numbers. If you have this problem, look online - you'll find it. However, since the Honeycomb update, the cell standby power consumption does not show up under Tablet Info. Either it's gone, or it's hidden! Benefit of the doubt here...I assume it's fixed.
As for Honeycomb, my update arrived and I pressed 'install' with gusto, only to find that the device locked in the Boot screen - not even able to power off, just a repeating series of circular commands. Something to do with "S-on" if you care to look it up on the web. Anyway, the fixes were WAY beyond my technical knowledge, and to give HTC their due, they immediately asked for it back under warranty and paid for UPS to come and collect it from me. Great service on this one - tablet collected for repair p.m. on Friday, back with me fixed on the Tuesday. Really can't ask for much more than that.
I prefer Honeycomb (which is what they installed for me) to Gingerbread. Nothing wrong with the latter, and the shifting buttons on the bezel were indeed cute in Gingerbread but, to be honest, I occasionally brushed them by mistake whilst holding the tablet, so having pretty much everything on screen is an improvement. Also, more flexibility in screen layout under Honeycomb. For me, it's a winner. Unfortunately I had downloaded Quickoffice pro on Gingerbread, not realising that it doesn't work with Honeycomb. C'est la vie.
I'm now about a month down the line with it, and the teething problems noted above have all sorted themselves out. The device is now only losing a star for uninspiring battery performance, but it's manageable and I'm now glad I went for the Flyer rather than shelling out extra for an iPad.
I did not want to buy an ipad (although they are fantastic tablets) due to its restrictions and how everything just operates via itunes. I wanted a tablet where I could just simply copy music, photos and videos via the usb port from my netbook. This does exactly that so there's no complications. If you insert a micro sd card into the tablet and connect it to your computer it will recognise the tablet and the card as 2 separate drives so it works out even better if you want to copy your files across to the sd card only
Updating to Honeycomb was straight forward and I had no issues with the menu buttons being disabled. I personally think its best to have it updated to the latest OS when available.
I have had the tablet for just 1 day now and so far all my family members who are ipad owners are well impressed with it. They love the size and speed when on the net. Some people may find the screen size small when compared to the ipad as there's a huge difference but this tablet is certainly more portable. Personally I don't have any issues as I'm used to using small screens such as netbooks.
Even though this is only the 16GB wireless version and not 3G it can be used like one. I also have a HTC Desire HD phone with mobile data which can be used as a Wireless Hotspot using a secured password. I can then connect the Flyer onto my mobile phone via wireless which it will then pick up as a Wireless Network. It will then only connect if I enter the correct password. Its just like using 3G and comes in handy if you're out and about on your travels where there is no wireless network available. Those of you who think they need the 3G version, well think again as this will work just like it if you have a decent smartphone with plenty of mobile data to play with. I am well impressed with this feature.
I don't think I will be using the Stylus Pen that much but I have tested it and comes in handy if you like to make notes or do some fancy sketches.
I strongly recommend to buy a decent leather case and screen protector as I had read other reviews which states that without it you can scratch the screen if you use the Stylus Pen a lot. Also as the tablet is well built you can feel the weight of it so you don't want to accidently drop it.
Overall, its quick to browse online or play videos via youtube, you can play your own collection of movies, music and view photos. All of which is easy to transfer across from your PC via a USB port. What more do you want?
I know there are a few next generation android tablets releasing soon and even though this tablet is not a dual or a quad core speed it still does everything you need to just like the high spec ones.
If ipad owners can be impressed with this tablet due to its high spec and good looks then its definately on a winner. The reviews on this tablet overall are mixed because the majority will choose an ipad due to its reputation but I think its one of best 7" tablets out there for sure. It even has a Kid Mode feature where it becomes more user friendly for children to use to read books, play games or to do any drawings.
I strongly recommened anyone out there looking for an android tablet to buy the HTC flyer. I have a HTC phone and now a tablet. So far I am well impressed with how good these devices are. Everyone have heard of Apple and Samsung but let me tell you that HTC is now becoming very reputable. Well done HTC!
