Five Reasons Why Your Windows Mobile Phone is Slow

You may have noticed that after using your Windows Mobile for some time, you may experience slowness in overall performance of your device. Here are top five reasons as to why your Windows Mobile Phone is slow:

  1. Check the phones internal memory of your device. If you have used up the phone memory, your device will perform erratically. Just as your computer runs slowly when you use up the hard drive space the same way your phone will perform when you use up its phone memory. You can save your contacts, messages, multimedia files; Bluetooth received files, etc in the memory card rather than storing them up in the phone memory.
  2. If you have opened many multiple applications simultaneously, your phone will suffer performance issues. Make use of the Task Manager to kill unnecessary programs that are running. When you open multiple programs at the same time, each program that is kept open continues to consume RAM and slow down the device. The idea is to keep only those apps open that you require.
  3. Make sure you have not kept too many hardware running simultaneously. Hardware such as WLAN, GPS receivers, Bluetooth, FM Radio, Infrared, etc if kept on may put pressure on the processor and slow down the device. You should not only turn off the hardware if you are not using it but also close the applications that are related to the respective hardware.
  4. Viruses are one thing that can significantly hamper the performance of your Windows Mobile phone. Make sure you have got the latest anti-virus installed. Also ensure that the virus definition is regularly updated. Do not download any file from unrecognized source or website. Perform virus scan regularly and keep your device free from virus. Make sure both the phone memory and external memory is free from virus.
  5. Your external memory (memory card) can also cause slowness in performance if it is full or if it has become corrupt. If your memory card is corrupt, it may cause the device to stop responding or perform poorly. Uninstall all the applications from your phone that are installed on the memory card. Remove unnecessary media files and free up the memory. Occasionally perform disk defrag on your memory card and fix bad sectors.

Acer beTouch E200 Review

Acer beTouch E200 is a cool cell phone that not only looks ravishing but also got plenty of features. Even though is slightly heavy as it weighs 146g and measures 110 x 53.5 x 15.4 mm, it feels amazing to hold this phone. The phone has been built magnificently. It has a 3 inch-resistive touchscreen display that easily catches fingerprints. It has a display resolution of 240 x 400 pixels. The display does not become unclear when viewed under direct sunlight which means you will not face much viewing problems while using your phone outside.

Below the display, you can find the D-pad with the Send and End keys. The sides of the phone are metallic gray in color. You can find the volume controller, display lock key and miniUSB port on the left hand side of the phone whereas on the right hand side you can access the camera shutter. The stylus compartment is located at the upper left side of the phone. Sliding the screen will reveal the numeric keypad with keys that are very easy to press. At the back, you can find the 3.2 megapixel camera along with the loudspeaker.

The Acer beTouch E200 is one of the first smartphones to run the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional operating system and has a very powerful processor – Qualcomm MSM 7225 528 MHz processor. Sadly, the WinMo 6.5 works slightly slow on the 528Mhz processor.The internal memory of the phone is 256MB with 512MB ROM.

Acer beTouch E200 can detect up to 16GB of microSD. The contacts options provides you with a special button that gives you access to social networking sites like Blogger and Flickr. The dedicated social networking app lets you access Facebook, Flickr, and YouTube. The PocketOffice app lets you view your office documents such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and PDFs.

Acer beTouch E200 has an amazing 3.2 megapixel camera that launches, focuses and takes snaps quickly. However, we noticed that the images appeared to be blurry and lacked details and snaps appeared worse when they were taken at night or dim light. You can record videos at 320 x 240 pixels the frames per second at which it captures video is quite low. The Windows Media Player supports playback of DivX and Xvid video formats. The boxed microUSB earphones have good sound output.

Acer beTouch E200 lacks wireless internet connectivity support but lets you surf on the web at 7.2Mbps (HSPDA) and 5.76Mbps (HSUPA) on 3G. The only internet browser on the phone is the Internet Explorer which is good but not the best. We advise you to use Opera Mobile on this phone to browse on the web. The other features on the phone include Bluetooth and assisted GPS. The standard Li-Ion 1140 mAh battery gives a stand-by time of up to 400 hours and talk time of up to 5 hours.

Top 7 Windows Mobile Applications

The Windows Mobile OS is a very easy to use operating system thanks to the Windows operating systems like Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 that we have been using on our desktops, laptops and netbooks. The best part about WinMo OS is that it provides you tons of add-ons, free and paid apps that you can install on your Windows Mobile.

Here are top 7 Windows Mobile applications:

1. Best web browser

Undoubtedly, the Opera Mini web browser is one of the best browsers available for smart phones as it comes with plenty of features such as multiple page browsing, zoom, speed dial, screen taps, and even lets you view online videos.

2. Best instant messenger

Though there are plenty of instant messengers available for WinMo such as Agile Messenger, Fring and Nimbuzz, the IM+ All-in-One messenger provides you with a single platform to get in touch with your friends on Yahoo, Gtalk, Windows Live, AIM, Skype, Twitter, MySpace and Facebook. The easy to use interface is what makes it to be best among others.

3. Best media player

The CorePlayer is a universal media player for playing all kinds of video and audio formats. It provides you with playlists and even lets you view YouTube videos. You can make use of it for viewing image files, container formats and streaming formats. It is a paid application and provides a top notch technical support.

4. Best synchronization application

MyMobiler not only lets you synchronize your data between your Windows Mobile and computer but also lets you control your computer through your phone. You can even use your computer’s mouse to navigate through your phone and use the computer’s keyboard to type messages on your phone. It also lets you access the Microsoft Exchange Server.

5. Best navigation app

Google Maps is the most preferred GPS app for Windows Mobile. It is a freeware app that lets you find directions and trace your destinations. If you are looking for a restaurant, you can simply type ‘restaurant’ in the search bar and you the app will let you view all the restaurants available at your location.

6. Best search app

Windows Mobile Live Search is the best search application for WinMo. With this app, you can get faster search results and even search on it hands free. It also does well in providing you with driving directions with easy to understand satellite imagery.

7. Best email application

A WinMo is incomplete without a powerful email application such as Blackberry Connect. It supports wide range of formats like MS Word, Excel, Adobe, etc and shows you mails in threaded messaging format. This app is not available on all the Windows Mobile phones and you will have to spend a few dollars to get this app on your phone.

Windows Mobile 7 says no to HTC HD2

Reason? It has five buttons rather than the three buttons mandated for all Windows Phone 7 Series devices.

Simply outrageous (to us).
