Toshiba TG01 Original orange UK firmware vs HTC Manila Sense ROM (HD2 based)

Toshiba TG01 Original orange UK firmware vs HTC Manila Sense ROM (HD2 based) cooked by arag0n85

Left: TG01 with Orange UK firmware (original where theme is set as Toshiba menu)

Right: TG01 flashed with HTC Manila Sense ROM (HD2 based) which is the phone I am currently using.

What are the difference ?? here we have a small reviews

(1) Home screen comparision

The home screen is pretty much like a summary page of shortcuts. You can customise and set whatever shortcut you like. Personally, I think HTC sense screen just looks a lot more stylish.

you scroll it and you can get more shortcut in another screen.


(2) Contacts menu

(a) overall views - Sorry that I didn't put any contact in the tg01 on the left , but they both have a similar layout.

(b) You can use the favourite tab on the HTC sense ROM (another useful function)

 

(3) New contacts

To add a new mobile phone of a new contact,  with original TG01 (left), you have to scroll down near to the bottom of the screen. If you put it as WORK TEL / HOME TEL, you will not be able to send SMS. Also, the box is pretty small, so I have to hit the mobile tel box pretty accurately. It's very annoying.While, on the HTC sense ROM, big NAME box, big mobile tel box under that. I love it. This is one of the major thing why I am now using the HTC sense ROM.

(4) Keypads

Toshiba keypad is alright, but HTC keypad just does it more. It has a XT9 which is useful as sometimes, I type it something wrong and it helps me to correct it. The layout is more useful friendly with a bigger space bar which I do use a lot. Also each key is slightly bigger.

Also, if you want to create a SMS, in original TG01, you have to say

-> CREATE MESSAGE -> Choose SMS / MMS -> it then forces me to choose a contact on my contact list or I have to create a new contact)

where in HTC sense

> Message -> New -> u can put the number yourself or add one / multiple contacts easily.

 

 

(5) Setting menu

This time, I think the original TG01 setting menu looks nice.

 

(6) Bottom shortcuts

The Original TG01 firmware has a useful shortcut (hung up call) button which takes you back to "home screen" immediately. However, in HTC sense firmware, you only have a "close /back" button where it need a multiple steps to back to the home screen.

(7) Shortcuts at the top & games menu

you lose a few games with the HTC sense ROM and bubble breaker is my favourite games. Also, with HTC sense firmware you can tab the top and magnify the shortcuts.

(8) Photo Album applications

Photo 6 which shows the

Photo 6 which shows the bottom shortcuts has some irrelivent information. Note how the little house screen hardware button on the bottom left will take you directly back to the homescreen. The bottom right hardware button will take you back one step, similar to the positioning in the HTC rom. A negative of the orginal rom is how close the home button is to the call button.

Is it possible to re-asign the hardware buttons?

Changed back to original

Changed back to original orange ROM, but immediately felt the differences - 6.5.5 much comfortable, and battery life is much better.
So, seriously thinking to go again to aragon's ROM, but what can be done in order to facilitate the system?
I think Sense is taking much memory - I would like to disable Sense... Your opinion - will it make system to run easier. Once I lost the call - sysetm got freesen...

WOW, that worth!
