Htc evo friend stream not updating
Turn on, and you’re faced with Android 2.1 underneath the user-friendly gloss of HTC Sense.Now familiar from several generations of smartphones, Sense is arguably still the best way to bring new users up to speed with what their handsets are capable of.Feature-wise it’s the same as on the HTC Desire or Legend: Facebook, Twitter and Flickr integration with contacts, a Friend Stream aggregated feed of all recent updates, full Exchange integration (with calendar support, rather than just mail and contacts on regular Android 2.1) and various eye-catching widgets for weather, settings and other features.There are seven homescreen panes on which to arrange them, and the EVO 4G flips between them – and indeed between all the menus and apps – without pause or lag.
That’s because under the hood are specifications we’ve grown to expect from high-end Android devices, with Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon chipset core to that experience.
Here it’s paired with 512MB of RAM and 1GB ROM (the latter is – on Android 2.1 at least – the only place you can save your applications to), along with a micro SD slot (there’s an 8GB card preloaded, held in with an unusual little peg rather than the traditional spring-loaded slot) and 1,500m Ah battery. A there’s Wi Fi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1 EDR and GPS, together with a G-sensor, proximity and light sensors, an FM radio and a 3.5mm headphone socket.
