Owner Reviews - A70

Post by AllenPapapetrou »

geep suggested a Sticky topic for Owner Reviews. So here it is - your one stop place to check user experiences with the A70.

Please:
1. Name Your Model - 8G or 250G
2. Country
3. Place of Purchase
4. Links for any of your Review Videos or Articles you've written
Remember you can EDIT your Review Post at any time if your experiences with the A70 changes.

Let's see those review folks!

Thanks,

Allen

Aloha maximmm,

Welcome to our forum :)

Thanks for the video - nice. I see the issue Aldiko has in landscape. Too bad.

I have installed a few games, watched movies, listned to a few songs, rad a lil bit a pdf, and of cource a lot of web surfing wirh th Dolphin Browser, everything worked fine. just the rotation takes sometimes very long, but this is ok for me.

No problem. Just remembered I had a problem with games in nested sub directories. I had to put my game folders (dw, dw2, dott etc) in the root of the storage space and then select the folder from the add game dialogue. Trying to double tap on the folders defeated either my coordination or timing.

4. not a review, but a "clubhouse" thread on my home-forum, just started and going to be adding info as it's found...

loving it so far. obviously cannot wait for 2.2 so it is on par with my Evo, but you simply cannot beat having such a big screen on a clean touch screen OS. looking forward to updates but really just having fun with it.

one thing of note is that the mini hdmi cable is larger than the one i have and expected it to be, didn't realize there were multiple mini hdmi cables.
