Anybody else dissatisfied with quality of G1?

 I was just wondering if I'm the only one who finds the G1 a little on the 
"unpolished" side?  It just doesn't seem to have the same quality as the 
iPhone.  Maybe it's just the nature of the slide-out display and its loose 
tolerances, but it just seems a little less robust than 1-piece phones.

 G1 is junky. No doubt about it. I have problems with the battery and voice
as well, it keeps cutting out on me. And I live down the street from
T-Mobile USA HQ, so I know it's not the network.

 I had my G1 replaced since it started to randomly reboot, during phone
calls, plug-in USB, open keyboard, etc.  Even a factory reset cannot be
completed since sliding out the keyboard to type my gmail account rebooted
the phone.

Now using the replacement G1, will see how long it lasts.

1. shape with shadow

Hey guys,

how can i add shadow to a shape?

My shape.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android=""
        <gradient android:startColor="#272828" android:endColor="#272828"
                android:angle="90" />

        <padding android:left="0px" android:top="10px" android:right="0px"
                android:bottom="10px" />

        <corners android:bottomRightRadius="30px"
                android:bottomLeftRadius="30px" android:topLeftRadius="0.1dp"
                android:topRightRadius="0.1dp" />

I tried to add this shape as background to a linearlayout. After this
i added following style to the linearlayout:

<style name="shape_with_shadow">
                <item name="android:background">@drawable/shape</item>
                <item name="android:shadowColor">#ff00ff</item>
                <item name="android:shadowDx">1.2</item>
                <item name="android:shadowRadius">1.5</item>

But i don't se any shadow.  How can i fix that?

please help, thanks


2. Why are onCreate() onStart() etc. called when handset orientation is changed?

Hi everyone,

I got my hands on Android which is really fun. But at some point I
don't seem to understand the concept. I've got a Main class which
reads like this:

public class Main extends Activity implements SensorEventListener
{ ... }

in the onCreate(...)  I set the layout to
and add an OnTouchEvent Listener to the sole View in main.xml:
myView.setOnTouchListener(new OnTouchListener() {
                        public boolean onTouch(View v, MotionEvent event) {...

As you can see I also implemented a SensorEventListener which is used
if required. All works fine so far.

But my problem is this (at this point my misunderstanding kicks in):
whenever I rotate the device the onCreate(), onStart() etc. methods
are called, causing my app to act as if it just started. Furthermore,
I feel unable to implement an onSizeChanged(int w, int h, int oldw,
int oldh) { ... } Listener.

Can anyone please explain where my error in reasoning is? I am working
on a tiny app which is more or less done, except for the just
mentioned bug(s). Maybe I got it all wrong but it does what it is
supposed to do (i.e. sending touch positions and accelerometer data
over the network via UDP).

Thanks for any help.
