Almost bought until i saw that the battery life is meant to be cack
#5
battery is cack, but if you use the Hungarian T-Mobile upgrade to Android 2.1 it improves no end.
UK T-Mobile should be releasing the upgrade (again) next month.

Great Deal!

good find

Ive had this a few time but always sell it a few days later (dont know why I buy in the first place). Its a nice phone once upgraded to 2.1 but with only approx 32mb of memory, not many apps can fit. Battery life is much better when upgraded. Good phone if you can get apps2sd to work. Good entry level phone but nothing more!
#9
For those that will be asking a whole lot of questions about this phone, You will probably find them in this post. Great price for a great phone.

I disagree & I'm sure I'm not alone.
I use it daily for Sat nav, email, internet search with voice recognition, Shopping, Fitness stats, MP3 , GPS, Facebook, voice recorder, stopwatch, calculator, notepad, camera & video, & oh yes as a phone. Thats just to mention a few purposes I use it for . What more can you get from something that isnt what you call an entry level phone?

Had this phone since December last year - there's very little it can't do. Now running the FLB custom rom on the 2.1 software. Only negative is the camera isn't the best.
Battery life is way improved running the 2.1 update.

£12 for an unlock code

or

£2 for a unlock sim (dealextreme) which slides in-between the sim and phone
#16
£10 amazon voucher and 6/12 free internet as well. no brainer if only to have a play with android before I make the jump!

Bought one of these last month when it was £99. My first ever smartphone and I'm still running Android 1.5 at the moment. So far it's been great, just deciding when to take the plunge to move up to a custom 2.1. I believe the folks at Modaco have also got 2.2 running on it.

Does anyone know if the 6 months internet starts straight away or can be delayed till my current 6 months sim runs out?

Works flawlessly The advantage is that it can be removed if the phone needs to be repaired in the future

I have got this phone and it is quite good entry level android phone. There are forums out there for you to root it, flash to Android 2.1 or in future 2.2 even. Build quality is good apart from micro USB charging pin which have been reported as broken after some usage. Mine is however working fine so far. Orange also launched a PAYG Android phone today named as Sanfransico which have about similar specs (£99). You could compare Pulse with that and see which is better phone. However for £85 it is a good value and I bought mine higher that this price.
#26
I've had one of these for about 3 weeks now and it is amazing. I opaid out £12.67 to get it unlocked and put in my old sim and it works fine. I have also updated to FLB-MOD 1.6a which lead to a vast improvement in battery life and general use. The mod ROM also allows the use of apps2SD which negates the small internal memory issue. I'm looking forward to when those clever folk at Modaco get the 2.2 ROM working.
I bought this phone as it met every one of requirements, namely: Android, large capacitative touchscreen (which is superb), plenty of apps available, mSD card.

I'd recommend it (as much as that means to anyone). :)
#27
Can anybody cofirm if it has a FM Radio in it like Pulse Mini?
#28
Reading the details it seems that you have to top up by £10 each month to get free internet! Is that true or am I reading it wrong?

From T-mobile
Get unlimited texts for free plus 6 months free internet

Top up just £10 each month and get unlimited free texts the whole of the next month

Get cheaper international calls, texts and internet

I have this phone since January. It's so bad I had to get a second (basic) phone.

The Hungarian update improves it a bit, but it continues to be infuriatingly sloooow and the sound quality is abysmal. Seriously, it sucks at being a phone. Only Android apps save it from being rubbish bin material.
#31
Looked at the T&Cs for the £10 voucher...slightly worryingly, the page that you have to go to to register for your ASOS/Amazon voucher doesn't seem to exist.

Why is it so bad? I was thinking of getting one but would like to know why you think it's crap.

Muyuu is entitled to their opinion but just take a look at this thread where the majority of us love it. There is also a forum called Modaco that is a great source of info & help for the Pulse.

The £10 voucher offer seems to imply you might have to do another top up besides the £10 you have to have with the phone. that would be a pain as I only want it to stuff my contract SIM in!

When I logged on to Topcashback this morning it specified £10 cashback for PAYG handsets. My purchase is only showing £5 pending though.

Bought the Pulse a few weeks back and apart from the iffy camera, I think it's a brilliant piece of kit.

Download the freebie Google Voice-to-text app and together with the built in GPS, you straight away have a quite usable & FREE UK sat-nav. If you also download the freebie Google Voice app you can just tell the sat-nav where you want to go and it finds the directions for you. Download the Google Shopper app, point the camera at something you want to buy and it instantly tells you where to buy it cheapest. Amazing stuff!

At this new reduced price, I'd say just go for it!
#39
Bought this ages ago when it was a similar price - my impressions were that it was just too slow. Not enough RAM, processor was not too bad, but RAM was rediculously low, too many widgets and it grinds to a halt. N900 is way better, or if you like an Android phone and can't hack raw Linux get HTC Hero which is just a little bit more on ebay.

My main gripes are:

- voice quality. In this time and age, you can still find a phone that actually is a pain to talk with, even with full network coverage.

- sluggish input. I have to wait for the damn phone when I'm typing SMSs, dialing phones and also filling forms and the address bar in the browser. The web browser is much improved if you upgrade to 2.1 (comes with 1.6 which is pish) but still, its processor is not up to the task. For some reason, probably lack of RAM, this phone is significantly less responsive than others with the same processor.

- battery life. It usually sucks in smart phones but when you have it exclusively for app/browser usage (as I simply don't use it for calls, it sucks so much) then it's especially highlighted. People would recommend not to open the browser or other apps for any significant amount of time if you want the battery to survive the day. But then again, what's the point? I have to carry the charger with me if I want to leave it logged into instant messenger apps (gtalk, skype, MSN, YM etc, which can be done with a single multi-protocol client).

The rest of the problems are secondary:

- It has a smaller headphone jack, so you need to carry the adaptor if you want to listen to music or just hear whatever the hell someone is saying (standard speaker is rubbish). With time you just don't bother.

- the camera is complete rubbish. Not that I care, since I seldom use phone cameras - I carry a decent standalone camera when I intend to take pics and even when I don't have it, my other phone has a better camera (the other phone is a rubbish PAYG 0+£10 top-up phone from O2 that I got back in march, just so you have perspective on how bad this camera is).

- can't really run much in parallel, as it's starved for memory. I use a memory manager to close everything as soon as I stop using any application, forget having more than 1 or 2 things in the background for long periods - otherwise your battery won't make it to dinner time.

I've toyed with developing Android apps, and I like the versatility, which is why I'll likely get a decent Android phone sooner or later.

At the price I got it (120 quid back in Jan), I consider myself BURNED by this purchase, and I regret it. Certainly for £80 I wouldn't do it right now. You can get the Samsung Galaxy S for 300-something PAYG from O2, or you can wait for the Desire-Z (or the plain Desire) to drop their price when Android 3 is released come October. These terminals TROUNCE this one. Unless you are also a developer and want a cheap common denominator phone to test your applications. For this, it works. As a phone it's rubbish.
