a couple minor and a couple major complaints about this phone... any suggestions?
So I finally broke down and picked up a Droid DNA. So far, I like the phone, but I want to like it *more*. Here are the problems I'm having with this device.. Does anyone have any suggestions or comments on the issues? Is it just me?
1: Bluetooth Audio (major) -- This phone does not work with the JBL stereo in my Toyota unless I use the stock music app. If I use any other app, when I hit play I might get 3-5 seconds of audio before the stereo switches to "Paused" however the phone keeps playing audio. This is not an issue on the Nexus or my old Droid Bionic with stock roms, however, it was an issue when I installed Cyanogenmod on my GNex. I assume this is somehow related to the Bluetooth stack that is being used, however, since all of my music is in Google Play or Spotify, this is a problem. I thought I had read somewhere that HTC has acknowledged this as a bug and it might be fixed in an OTA update... Is that true?
2: Notification bar icons (minor) -- Coming from a Galaxy Nexus, I rather liked the fact that when I was connected to Google services, the notification icons for WiFi and 3G/4G turned blue. On this phone, it seems like they always stay white. This is a minor gripe, however, at work we have an open wifi system that requires me to agree to terms. It has a tendency to require re-authorization later in the day, and I will never know if that happens on this phone unless I actually try to connect to something. Which brings me to #3
3: Connecting to public hotspots via WiFi (minor) -- On my Galaxy Nexus, when I connected to a public hotspot that required authorization, there was a notification that popped up indicating this that I could address. On this phone, I cannot find a setting to enable this. Any ideas?
4: Intents (major) -- Is it just me or does this phone completely disregard application intents? For example: If I'm in a Twitter application and I open a link to reddit, I *should* be prompted to either open the app in Chrome, Internet (stock browser), or Baconreader. I am not prompted for this, and instead, the link is forced open in whichever application I have set as my default web browser. This happens in several different cases (Tapatalk, Youtube, Maps, etc..) This is, to put it mildly, bad. In fact, it's super bad. Is there a setting somewhere I've missed that enables this or is this a defect/"feature" in HTC Sense?
