I keep pointing out that the comparisons with latest-spec'd Android phones needs to stop unless you think it's fair for me to compare the HTC Arrive with the T-Mobile G1.
I've played Angry Birds on the more similarly spec'd Evo 4G and I think it's better on the Arrive.

Yikes. Didn't know it was getting it's arse handed to it like that. If it's limited to 30 fps, then I dont see how better hardware would help. Unless it's running below the cap now.Goodbye Dooley! You will NOT be missed!:@

Mango XNA screen refresh rate can now go up to 60 Hz
XNA games are capped at 30 FPS. The cap will be raised to 60 FPS in Mango.
I had an Evo 4G for 8 months, then I ditched it for an HD7. I honestly don't see much difference with Angry Birds on either platform.
As for battery life, the HD7 absolutely blows the Evo away. The funny thing is, the HD7 has a smaller battery, yet it still lasts a good 3-4 hours longer than the Evo in my experience.

Yeah, it wasn't smoother for me either when I had the Evo. At my Arrive's worst, it reminded me of the usual with the Evo. Also, from full charge, I found out early that I couldn't play the game for very long if I wanted to be mobile because the battery just drained fast. If that's what you get for unnoticeable smoothness (and I guess multitasking), you can keep it.

Did you turn off the 4g radio? I'm not sure how long that adds to the battery on the Evo 4g, I hear the 4G radio is a battery hog. I have a HTC Trophy on verizon and my battery life is not awsome, but I think it might be the messenger app. Microsoft didn't even make there own messenger app, and it keeps reconnecting even with 4 bars and Wifi.

If your having issues with battery life just buy another battery and switch it out when it runs out.
I play a lot of live games and get a good 4 hours or more out of it which i think is pretty good.
When it runs out I switch the battery, I picked up a decent battery for a £5 on amazon and because its so light and small it isnt a problem carrying on me.TWEET @YIPYOO
