Yes the terminology of Java is the difficult part, structuring will get easier for you soon if you keep practicing it.

In java, there is ALWAYS one Main Class/code. You can create instances or separate classes that are used as methods or the like from the Main class/code.

Look up "Java Tutorial" on youtube by TheNewBoston

It's alot of videos but he explains it better than most teachers do.

They even have forums with people actually willing to help.

Im a HTC user in India using HTC Desire S. No idea about other HTC phones but what i normally hear is that the company does not provide value for money. I got my phone replaced for 1 time and serviced for almost almost 5-6 times. Still the phone is at die hard stage. And.. Damn i bought this for 24 Grants here in India.

Come on, HTC! The EVO 3D was a flagship device in its time and should be treated with Android 4.1 if not 4.2. Jellybean doesn't use much more resources than 4.0 IMO and it's more than capable of running it. It even has 1 GB of RAM, so that shouldn't be a problem.

We are buying One X's or + models anyway.
As an HTC fan, loyal users aren't worried and
happy with getting better hardware to show our support.

4.1 runs better on quads with 1GB as well.
When 4.2 lag fixes are added to sense it will blow
TouchWhiz away for smoothness

> In reply to apple-sux @ 2012-11-13 21:47 from Lk@j - click to readTell me again why would anyone NEED to use the latest Android? Last time I checked, most devices still run a solid build of Gingerbread and it's not going to change any time soon. A device has fully functioning smooth-running hardware since the day it was purchased. There is no NEED for software updates, just a WANT. I do want my Note to get JB as it's packed with tons of new stuff but I don't really have a need for it.
Stop complaining so much and use the hardware you've purchased. If you're just in for the updates, move to iOS but be prepared for an ocassional mishap *cough* Apple maps *cough* and a ton of abuse from the Android crowd:P

If you want a new and more exciting look, get a custom launcher, or ROM for that matter. You'd still be able to run the same games and apps.

If you buy a phone for it's OS version and expected future updates, rather than what apps it can rund and what the phone is actually able to do hardware wise, then you need to shift your focus.

. OEMs are putting all this bloatware on their phones. This actualy makes a difference in user experience between Samsung, HTC or LG... With a bit of knowlage you could have like 2 years old phone like SGS and use JellyBean. I don't know the difference on hardware requirenments for ICS and JB but ICS run just fine even on my old HTC HD2 (1GHz cpu + 576 RAM). And it was made in the previous century (end of 2009). Maybe even JB would be usable...

Hopefully, HTC Sensation will be getting Jelly Bean because it has 768MB of memory.
