Gear: HTC Flyer, BlackBerry PlayBook, Slate Tablets.
Some software comparisons that hopefully help you decide which one you like more.
- Seems to be a bit faster
- Only orients to a main landscape and a main portrait (where buttons are located)
- Slower automatic orientation (by a bit)
- Can do automatic rotation on all sides
- This rotating roulette HTC Sense UI stuff is neat, and runs at all times
- It's also easy to check your apps and add interactive gadgets
- Seems a bit more plain when compared to the Flyer
- You can add shortcuts to categories (you cannot add your own categories... bummer)
- I love the search on the system. I can find my apps or go straight into the browser.
- Search allows me to find apps (yes you will eventually add a lot of them)
- There's no "search" option on the PlayBook. (maybe in a future update)
- I want search because looking for apps can be tedius
- With settings you can customize and personalize a lot of the Flyer.
- The settings menu looks a bit "cheap" and "unpolished"
- The PlayBook has well organized and "clean" setting options
- Flyer and PlayBook
- Both can do automatic rotation lock by checking on the settings
- While the Sense UI roulette seems like multi-tasking it's NOT app multi-tasking.
- The PlayBook has the better multi-tasking, it's great stuff.
- The Flyer's keyboard seems a bit more "cluttered"
- You can access special symbols and numbers by pressing and waiting
- There's a vibration feedback that occurs every time you press a key
- The keyboard feels extremely "clean"
- With a press of a button you can view your symbols and numbers
- Support for various languages right on the keyboard
- "pop" sounds when key presses occur (volume can be reduced through settings)
