Slowness causing usability hell?
Having owned a Qtek 2020/8080 and a 9090, I thought I'd give a windows mobile handset a fourth try by buying the HTC touch pro.
These are my experiences so far:
- the first 2 days I had a hard time not accidentally hang up during phonecalls
- Slow responses lead to usability hell - when a tap on a button does not seem to register, a second tap triggers a second action.
- GPS coordinates do not seem to be attached to pictures' exifdata, while it is enabled using Kaisertweak.
With the previous phone I had (Motorola RZR) I could start a new phonecall within 2 seconds. With my htc touch pro it takes 2 seconds to get to the contacts screen.
My second choice would be an iPhone. Usabilitywise that might have been a good idea, but I really require a hardware keyboard like the htc touch pro has.
Are there any speed-specific tweaks available that could speed up the userinterface? Are there themes that consume less cpu/mem?
(I do love this device because of the amount of features it packs. I'm in some kind of love-hate relationship with my phone, currently ;)
