About Steve Raycraft

I am new to the blogging arena, but felt it was something that I could do to share with others my passion for Technology and Android in general. I currently live in Tennessee with my wife. I look forward to working with the guys here at HTCsource and would love feedback on my posts.

    The new update ruined my music and all audio. The sound now sounds like the phone is underwater. I am livid.

    I just got the update and I’m SO DISAPPOINTED with it. They’ve completely changed the look of the operating system. Gone is the elegant, balanced, translucent design,and in it’s been replaced by a blocky, opaque, flat, gothic look. It looks like they took a design step backwards about 5 years. What were they thinking???

    Is there any way I can roll back the update or change the look of my phone?

    Btw, I will recommend that you put dates on your blog posts. It is super important to know the date on a post about a firmware update. Otherwise, great job!

    Just got the update and hate the look and how it works. Also you cannot add more than 3 pages unless you had more than 3 but you cannot add more than what you had or the 3 they set the limit at. Cannot roll pages over to ge to pages. Now you have to move left or right and cannot just keep going one way to turn pages. The icons are bad and the phone functions are not only hard to read but poorly done. If anyone can figure out how to step the update back please let us all know. If I can’t go back I am going to look at a new phoke like Samsung.

      I totally agree with you Mark. And I discovered these same things you mention. It really sucks and I want to switch to a different phone too….

    I totally agree with everyone. This update is awful! It takes over 6 seconds after pushing the send button on the text messages for the message to actually leave. Every thing seems MUCH slower.

    I am not impressed with the look or the usability. I am very disappointed. I wish I could roll back.

    I agree. The phone is so much slower doing ALL of the operations. Texting is aweful and I’m ready to reset and start all over. The DNA had a great setup as delivered. Why do developers always try to change what works fine. HTC blew it on this update. Help!!!

    I was in love with my DNA when I got it. Do not change the look after I purchased the phone a certain way, that’s a huge reason why people do get the phones that they do. It’s sad enough that right after the DNA came out it was discontinued practically instantly. But then changing the appearance ruined it. I had such a beautiful look going on and my full-screen wooden calculator that came on the phone is not flat black, so my matching wooden background doesn’t match it anymore (I also have a phone case made of cork) so my entire aesthetic is completely thrown off.
    On top of that, everything is SOOOOO SLLOOOWWWW it takes a million years to open anything and send anything, when I try to use Swype (yes Swype and not the Droid version which is bad in comparison) is extremely laggy and makes me not even want to type at all.
    ALSO, I have 6 other roommates and we communicate through group conversations, so tell me why after the update when I send a message through group convo, everyone’s responses come back to me individually now. Do you have any idea how hard that is to keep up with and how out-of-order things get??!!! ESPECIALLY when my phone is lagging, so I have 6 other girls spamming my folder topspeed while I can’t even send one message and then I have to go through everything and piece together the conversation ALL WHILE everyone is stiiillll talking to me. Like wtf is this? Is that how I should be starting 2014, with a phone that has ruined every single purpose of why I own it?!
