Nokia Asha 303 - Removing applications

Nokia Asha 303 - Removing applications

I'm wondering whether I'll be able to remove facebook, twitter etc. from the phone since I will never use them. They'll probably get in the way, and seeing them and knowing that I can't get rid of them will irritate me greatly.

The phone isn't released yet, but it's going to use S40 so my question should be answer-able.

I wouldn't bet on it. Most likely I guess facebook and twitter will be a part of the system loaded on the phone and not preinstalled with the possibility to be removed.

Anyway, I can't see the point which it should annoy you of just beeing there.

[ Edited ]

Is there a place where I could complain about it? I don't think it should be too hard to allow users to remove applications.

Anyway, you would be surprised how much it's going to annoy me if the phone has dedicated physical or nonphysical keys that I don't need or want to see in important easy to reach places. 

I've been on the lookout for a new phone for years now (still using Nokia 2255), and this phone might be it.

Re: Nokia Asha 303 - Removing applications

You can contact Nokia by using the "contact us" tab on the top of this page... But I don't think that will help though.

I think you rather have to buy an android device and root it and see if you can remove such apps - or see if you can find a custom ROM which does not contain such.

Well I've sent them something now, thanks.

Android fails 90% of all the criteria that I have, they aren't good phones.

Re: Nokia Asha 303 - Removing applications

No problem.

I can't say I agree with Android fails 90% etc.

Remember that there are many manufacturers making phones with android. They all add more or less manufacture specific things to it as launchers, apps, etc. Some are bad releasing updates and some are good. The nexus's does run vanilla android.

In fact, pretty much the fantasy is the limit of what you can do with it.

I have had the Xperia Arc since May, and it's been reliable, fast, etc. No issues.

SE has also changed its bad habbit of not releasing updates.

Their SE specific adds to the OS is very light.

I have had the SGS too which was a pleasure to work with regards to flashing custom roms for Android.

Something to think about if it turns out that you can't remove them annoying apps from Nokia Asha.

Good luck!

Re: Nokia Asha 303 - Removing applications

I was more or less stating my personal stance towards android phones. There are multiple reasons why I wouldn't use an android phone, and most of them are fundamental reasons which manufacturers have no part in. Even if someone made an android phone with perfect out of the box functionality, which I'm seeking btw, it would still fail in the user experience department.

 

I need menu's. Having trivial things such as the calculator etc. on the main page feels wrong. They need to be categorized properly like Nokia has done, and all of them have to exist on the phone the first time I need them, otherwise the phone will be fighting against me.

 

Another huge issue is that I don't want to combine entertainment with phones. A phone is like a swiss army knife. A multi-purpose tool with the primary purpose of helping you get things done. Draining the battery life or doing something that might make the device more unreliable is something I don't want to do.

 

I'm mainly just trying to make the situation easier to understand. Even though I didn't warm up to the ideas, I appreciate the replies you've given me.

Re: Nokia Asha 303 - Removing applications

No problem, I get your point. We all have different ways of using devices and different needs.

I have a Samsung Xcover 271 for work as it is the nearest thing you come to a bulletproof phone. It doesn't do much other than texts and calls, though it has 3g and a twitter and facebook client installed which is a part of the firmware and cannot be removed, but no other "funky" stuff.

On gsm it stays on forever - superb battery life and talk time. Manages water, dust, and whatever you throw at it. Might worth a look? It's not expensive either.
