Compare HTC Flyer to HTC Jetstream
So, I have both. And I will share my thoughts.
Inking: A major complaint I had with the Flyer was that the stylus was limited to the Reader app, HTC Notes and the PDF Viewer. The PDF Viewer was kinda clunky because the pen nib was ginormous! However, I could change colors on the pen and highlight functions.
So, the JS doesn't have the Reader app, but I have another option that is just as good with the Moon+ reader. No handwritten notes, but eh. The keyboard is big on the JS, so it is ok. HTC Notes has a new nib that is a crayon. Love it. It also seems the response on the JS kills the Flyer! PDF Viewer is the same, EXCEPT the pen nib is smaller and smoother, which is AWESOME, but I am limited to blue only!
However, I can use the scribe ANYWHERE on the JS! Hands down, I prefer the JS in using the stylus! I just wish that I could change out the ink colors in the PDF Viewer to more than blue....
Widgets on the JS are cool....pretty standard Sense Widgets. Also, the wallpaper scrolls like on Sense 2.0 (like the Evo 4G). Glad to have that back! The default browser is better as well. Actually, all the widgets are better on the JS!
I also prefer the size. I read a lot and I had to zoom a lot with the Flyer.
Regarding video, it does just fine for me. I use Netflix and Crackle and it's all good. I also have some downloaded movies that are good as well.
It feels better in my hand than the other tablets I have tried because of the curve. It feels comfy even if it is heavier. And it is a solid well made tablet. Much like the Flyer's older brother! And believe me, you can see the difference in the real estate between the two!
I am also happy to have a full version of Zinio working on this bad boy!
If you have any questions, just post them! Yeah, I know, I am a girl and with all the reading, I sound like I oughtta just have a Nook. Lol. I want this bad boy rooted, though! I miss my backup and customizing!
