Re: Bad look of Symbian Anna Round Icons in E7

I don't understand why some people whines about the look of the icons since they can be changed by downloading a theme that pleases ones visually.

So your decisions were based on icons, and therefore not upgrading to better performance?

 

 A wastly majority are very satisfied with Anna actually from what I hear, and considering that the upgrade is very big, it would be strange not to hear from a lonesome crowd of regrets...there are milllions and more millions of peoplethat have been doing this for a time now....

 

well, everybody has his own agenda. by the way, maybe some of these themes can get your attention if the icons are so ugly to you in Anna;

 

Deep Blue  took it for one of my phones, my E6.

 

All black 

 

I use them both actually on my E6. I like them both...

 

Strange to me not to upgrade for just a reason of icos..., but now it is time to be fed and be polite.

 

Cheers :smileywink:

Re: Bad look of Symbian Anna Round Icons in E7

@mbilal: "A patch to display old icons"?! Where do you people come up with this stuff?! While at it maybe we can have a patch that makes Anna phones behave like S40 devices, monochrome diisplays and all? Oh, and I really liked the roller in my Nokia 7110, so maybe a patch for that too?!

 

If you really don't like the icons to the point where you can't even look at your phone, make a theme yourself with the old icons.

 

And put it on Nokia Store, so that others like you can benefitfrom your theme which hides them ugly rounded icons.

Old Icons Patch means icons of Symbian^3,  not the icons of Nokia 7610

Business phone? Really?

 

The new icons are the best thing ever happened to Symbian^3. We can argue about the design of particular icons, but in whole, the new, uniformly shaped icons are modern, sleek and good looking together, in contrary to the visual mess which was before. Take it from a professional graphics designer.

 

Some apps, like Sports Tracker 2, already changed their icons to conform to the new style. And more will follow. What you're gonna do about that? Hack the apps to bring back the old icons?

Re: Bad look of Symbian Anna Round Icons in E7

@mbilal , waht gets me is the sneaky way Nokia forced the new icon set onto people, not mentioning it anywhere, not even a peep or mention on the web for almost 10 months, and then they suddenly stick them on to peoples phones via that Trojan horse called Anna, that no one was aware of, so it was impossible for tru Symbian fans to avoid them by not installing the evil new software ??? Shame on you Nokia for your sneaky underhand and non-publicised ways !!!! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Bad look of Symbian Anna Round Icons in E7

This is absolutely not true.

 

The new icons were mentioned, shown and discussed, as one of the main "new features"  in every preview/review of Anna, long before the first Anna device became available.

They were also introduced by Nokia during the announcement event, there were videos all over the web showing their new icons on Nokia's slides.

Last but not least, the Anna upgrade was absolutely voluntarily - I did it for 4 of my friends and family members on their phones, and none of them was ever forced to upgrade, not even asked. We had to check for new SW and then select the OS upgrade explicitely.

 

I am no longer a friend of Nokia's like I used to be over the last ~20 years or so, due to my recent history with their products and services, but I am against Nokia bashing when its not justified.

 

Or was your post meant to be ironic?

@gnirkatto:

Not everyone cares about what is discussed or reviewed/previewed. I'd say most people just care for phones when it's actually time to buy a new one. Why should I care what Nokia presents as long as my phone works fine?

 

As for me, I installed Anna yesterday on my N8, thinking it was just some firmware upgrade because it said so in my language ("Gerätesoftware"). No word of a "new, horrible look", "we're just gonna change all your settings to some **bleep**" or "you liked that wallpaper? well, now it's gone".

Also, the message that there was an update available kept popping back up, so of course I installed it – could've also been a vital security update.

My mobile carrier is now sending me a new SIM card because they say the new software doesn't work with the old cards and therefore I can't use my mobile internet.

 

I am just annoyed like hell. They may alter whatever code they want, but if they change the look of what I'm staring at half a day I want to be asked FIRST! :smileymad:

Re: Bad look of Symbian Anna Round Icons in E7

 @ freddaar: just in case you didn't notice, my reply was for the previous poster carman58, who complained heavily about nokia not having made an announcement on this, which is not true. Whether we like an upgrade or not, what more can a vendor do than to announce it everywhere and at every occasion, long before it actually gets released.....?

 

I didn't criticize you for not liking the icons,  that is a matter of individual taste.

 

Your frustration is justified if you constantly got reminded/requested to upgrade. However, my son and my wife both have an E7 and they never got any requests nor reminders to upgrade, and I had to tell them this upgrade was available and to convice them to allow me to upgrade their phones.

Of course no good if it was different in your case.

I agree - It would be nice if they were to look somewhat like that which they were to open or give us the ability to change them
