grudge: Yeah pretty sad I couldn't get angry birds working.


I can confirm that Angry Birds definitely works on the 845.

Launch the game, and then just let it run it's course onto the start game.

1. Launch game, it'll go blank for a few seconds and then start.

2. Let the screen saver come on and lock the phone.

3. Tilt your phone to the left to display in landscape mode

4. Unlock after 10 or so seconds and voila

ah it's tricky, i'll give it a try later.
Pocket legends (mmo) works on this phone pretty smooth with low textures (@710mhz).

Angry Birds is fairly laggy on my stock 845.  But hey... it works :)

Nice review. I learnt some things that I didn't know about my 845. What live wallpaper are you using with your 845?

Pretty good review. I wanted to try out one of the custom roms on my mum's 845 but unfortunately she has cracked the screen and I think it will give out fairly soon.

Love the phone, but, the tracker goes nuts in the sun and the cursor leaps around, making texting outdoors very difficult.

I was thinking of buying this for my parents. I thought they might find txting on a qwerty on screen keyboard easier than T9 txt which they have trouble with. Also I can customise the homescreen so it only has 3 icons - TXT MSG / PHONE / CONTACTS. Do you reckon this phone is ok for old people, I want to buy them something very cheap as they don't use the phone often.  My other idea was to get them an E63.

Anyone have "issues" with the headphone jack?

Let me explain;

1) When I first plugged my headphones all I heard was loudish static (no music playing).
2) Playing music with the built in app sounded really really really bad - like listening to a small speaker in a tunnel. Coming from an n95 this was somewhat dissapointing especially since I would use it when flying for work.
3) I tried a few other media players from the market but same results so I gave up ever thinking of using it as a mediocre music player
4) Then I happened to try PowerAmp (Trial) the other night and suddenly it sounds great. Same for the built in app and others - so Im thinking WTF? Is it the player app, the phone or just me?
5) Now and then it does the static/tunnel thing again but I just unplug me head phones and plug them back in and its back.

So, has anyone else experienced this or is my phone defective?

Thanks

I havent experimented too much with it myself, but when using the inbuilt media player the sound outputted through the headphone jack has been horrible just as you describe - i would call it echo-ey
