I've walked into a pissing contest.
Put the swords away guys.
Agreed..but who uploads a whole days worth of facebook photos in one day?
Thats a case of going with the WORST POSSIBLE scenario to make a point is it not?
That was supposed to be 256kps and you KNEW what i meant
Its irrelevant anyway because we are looking at something more akin to 1mbs per second on these and you are complaining that its not 5.76...and at 1mbs it would go through in less than 5 seconds.
My argument stands..point stands. Typo does is irrelevant.
Not really, I've uploaded a few dozen pictures to Facebook multiple times. And on vacation you don't have a wifi network all the time.
And it's not a worst case scenario. It's a smartphone that is meant to be used to it's fullest potential. 256k uploads is not to the networks fullest potential.
Nope, your still wrong, your confusing bytes and bits. Throughput is always measured in bits. A 1mbps upload speed is actually 125,000 bytes per second, so 4 seconds for every megabyte of data. To upload a 4.5 Meg file as you mentioned in 5 seconds would require an 8mbps upload speed.
I think i see the problem.
You expect everything to work at its peak theoretical bandwith all the time while i take into account things like network traffic, signal strength, etc and realize that the peak theoretical is RARELY actually achieved with any device ever. There will be spikes that get "into the neighborhood" with dips that are just down right horrible.. Thats the nature of wireless cell phones. Its also the nature of a BRAND new network thats barely even completed/functioning. Frankly id be SUPRISED if it were any other way?
Regarding the picture upload time jumping from 5 seconds to 20 something seconds (based on upload being measured in bits not bytes) above, i still don't think people usually send the picture files at that setting or send that many at once..
Edit: On that note i think the "upload speeds do not matter as much as you are claiming" back and forth argument has fully been explored. Not much else to say.
Exactly, sigh. New network, blah blah.
I'll take my 1200kbps upload and you can have your 256kbps.
I do not think it will stay at 256kps but lets have this argument again next year when AT&T rolls out its LTE network as well (it's been fun). LOL
I agree there may be a few users "impatiently" waiting on something to upload at those speeds but i think its been exaggerated here somewhat.
Seriously? If you guys wanna continue this, take it to PM's. This is the review/preview area. Not the Bandwidth/Network/Bits vs. Bytes area.
I don't think it will stay at those speeds either, but it is proven that att disables faster upload speeds in all phones except for the iPhone.
Upload speeds are important to many users, and there is a reason why tmobile's are 1-2mbps, sprint's are 2-3mbps, and Verizon's lte even higher.
Att cannot compete unless they remove the cap and give the phones full access to their network.
custom roms can allow hsupa, correct?
Yep. Good news in particular for the Inspire 4G because its based on the Desire HD. I'm sure you'll be able to pull the modem from that and enable HSUPA on the Inspire.
Now if we port a modem from the desire, will that have hspa+ enabled as well? or is it completely dependent on the rom
I am over simplifying the process, but the Desire HD supports HSPA+ stock. So you could just port the stock ROM/modem and enable HSUPA.
Somebody much smarter than me will have to write up a tutorial for the rest of us.
Flashing to a new modem is pretty easy if its included in the rom. Flashing to a new modem by itself is where it gets tricky
For some reason I imagined to be easy to flash separately. On samsung devices you can flash the kernel, modem, and ROM all separately.
Just glancing at this thread, it looks straightforward: The HTC Desire HD Radio Thread - xda-developers
I've never rooted before. Where on xda should I go to read up? From what i can tell, the rooting procedure is device specific and since this phone doesn't have a guide, where can I come up to speed?
I had to post this... looks like we'll have to wait until April to get this phone. And this was written today?!! Also has undeleteable hardware on it...
If you're going to post an article on the net, you need to do at least a little research.
