[Q] State the differences
I will be getting my AT&T unlocked OG e970 next week. My previous device was HTC Desire S and I used it's official xda section to get answers and stuff... I came here to xda in search of a dedicated forum for the e970 model and was surprised to see only a single OG forum for multiple variants of this device.
As the hardware specs are more are less the same except the dimensions, camera and modem versions, I am kind of left wondering what features (either software/hardware) are drawing the line between these models.
Things I know so far
1. There are 2 variants for the device (International and regional)
2. Different radios (modems) can't be flashed across the devices. Eg., Flashing e975 Europe's radio onto an AT&T e970 as this would cause disruption in networks and connections such as 3G.
Things I would like to know
1. Are the radios of different models for the same region cross compatible? Eg., Is it possible to use the radio of Europe's e975 onto an Europe's e973?
2. Apart from mere hardware changes what are the features present/absent in the various versions (e970,e975,etc) of this device. Do they have any additional standout features such as qmemo, "see through lockscreen", irblaster (as in G Pro). If so what are the unique features of different models?
I've seen various review videos and articles and nothing seems to highlight the uniqueness of various versions of this phone other than that 13/8 MP camera.
So if you own one of these models of OG and happen to bump into this thread, kindly spare a few minutes of your time to clarify my doubts and many others out there too
