Default Just got the Warp Sequent!

Hello, I just picked up the sequent today as my new phone. I really like this phone. I recently had an HTC one v, which I found to be junk. In fact I've had 3 HTC phones, all lemons. But that's a whole other story. This is about the Sequent. I really like the phones lack of skin. Its almost a vanilla Android. It even has the persistent search bar, which reminds me of my nexus 7.

However, even though the search bar is there, the grid seems to unnecessarily size squeeze the icons together in the middle, leaving big gaps on the top and bottom. Has anyone else noticed that? Also, my native email app doesn't work right, and I have to use a 3rd party gallery because the stock one won't register ANY of my photos.

Battery seems good in sleep mode, but appears to drain at a worrying rate during use. It has only been one day though, so I'm still trying to figure that out. Hopefully battery life will stabilize.

Update: the stock gallery had mysteriously started working. Email still won't even sync to my account; insists my password is incorrect. Battery continues to worry me. Android System is at the top, using around 50 percent. Similar to a HUAWEI mercury phone I once had.

Hi folks I'm with the Warp and the Sequent is on sale at Best Buy. What I'd like to know is if its worth upgrading. My only problem is the in ear call volume and its a killer for what I need. Maybe joining you soon and I see development is coming along.

I too was worried about the icon spacing. I have since rooted my phone and installed nova launcher prime as it is much better than the stock launcher and solves my icon spacing issue. My battery like is great on this phone and I've had no real issues with it. Always make sure you use your task manager and also the battery optimization app as well.

I ditched this phone. I really liked it, but I couldn't deal with the battery life on mine. I forked over 50 more dollars and got the LG optimus l9 from T-Mobile. So much better. Fast. Dual core, 4g (not sprints WiMAX ghetto 4g), 4.5 in. screen. And my monthly Bill is cheaper than boost too. I'm happy.

its not a bad phone for the price, especially considering most boost phones out cost twice what theyre worth, but its no one x, the only problem with htc phones i have is the rom that comes on them, but the rom that comes on this thing is no prize either, it may not be the atrocity that sense is, but its got alot of issues. which would be fine, if zte was cooperative when it came to kernel update source, and the entire development community for the phone didnt consist of like 4 guys one of which still has very little idea what he is doing (that would be this one)

I have got a Warp Sequent phone with me and its pretty good for all means of work. I see that ppl are just quiting this phone cuz the battery life is too bad but wud like to add that if ppl keep on using the phone for more time then it is obvious that the battery will get dried soon. My belief is that in todays telecom market all the phones are the same wen it comes to battery the more you use the more battery will get dried. It doesn't mean that you call the phone as cheap. It is a good phone and ppl shud know hw to use it.....don take me in a wrong way this was jst my opinion. As, all the fingers cnt be of same size then how could you expect all the phones to be same....!!!!!

no, people are referring to the fact that with a download running and the phone plugged in to the charger the battery actually goes DOWN. it is a battery hog, has been since the day i got it, and not all batteries are created equally, just as not all phones are created equally, this phone does have some decent hardware for the price without a contract, but it is no greater technology than the original warp, just a bigger screen and the processor runs faster out of the box. this would have been a top of the line phone a few years back, but now its just a pretty good budget phone and if i could afford something better i would get it
and some people yes their problem is not knowing how to use it properly, but i like to think i know what im talking about, and most of the people on this section of the forum seem to agree lol
