Re: Belle on E6 - first impressions

So, problems are piling  up fast, too fast.

 

Now one of my inboxes won't display on home screen and notifications for new messages won't go away even after I read them.

 

Is it possible to install Anna gain?

 

This upgrade started to damage my business. E6 is best phone I ever had, but this Belle software is something I don't understand.

 

NOKIA, WHEN WILL YOU FIX THIS????

 

It's becoming serious...

Re: Belle on E6 - first impressions

Good decision would be to learn from our mistakes and wait with the upgrade.

Belle definitely looks nicer and smoother, but the functionality of the E6 as a business phone is compromised with a lot of annoying problems from email (still the primary business communication tool nowadays) usability to wireless problems.

Re: Belle on E6 - first impressions

And another glitch was found...

 

If I select on any call list to compose a message for a certain caller, nothing happens. It's very inconvenient to remember the caller and then going to message menu to do the work.

 

I think it's time to get Anna back somehow. NOKIA please respond!!!!

Re: Belle on E6 - first impressions

I've been using it for a couple of days and like(d) it. Works smooth, in general it's nice interface upgrade. But...

1. Is it possible to have "Folders"-like Messages (same as before)? Now one has to choose option "View Folders" ?
2. Display the remaining characters for a text message?

Let's call upper questions cosmetic ones. No harm.

3. Tried to view my webfeeds (they were imported from Anna). No success. Had a feeling the phone had frozen. Had to do HW reboot. After rebooting, I wanted to browse a bit, no success. Frozen again. Even closing an application didn't work. Eventually, it closed it (after some minutes).

I don't know what's going on. Anyone observed such issues?

Re: Belle on E6 - first impressions

@maartenreinders: Did you have any luck with the Business center, and if so, which one? I've called a few BCs and some other phone shops and they all say a downgrade is impossible.

It would, perhaps, ultimately prove futile to enumerate all the possible ways in which Belle on E6 . The point is not whether it is good or evil, the point is NOKIA, LET ME CHOOSE. 

 

AND I WANT MY ANNA BACK. 

 

You tricked me into having a completely different phone now from what I purchased. And I cannot go back? That is called 'deception' AKA 'misleading the customer'. Really sad to see what this company have become.

 

FYI: Nokia CC in Hungary is saying no downgrade is possible.

Re: Belle on E6 - first impressions

Hi I'm an E6 user from Indonesia and I've got Belle update for my phone around 4 days ago.

It's a great improvement from Anna in terms of performance, in cosmetics not that much

 

Pros :

  1. My phone runs much faster, with no hangs or freezes until now ! ( with Anna, I used to see it hangs once a day )
  2. widgets are more beautiful. I rarely used e-mail widget so I don't see it as a problem like many other user suggested
  3. Battery life improves
  4. drop-down bar is great

Cons :

  1. Although we get 6 homescreens, each can only contains 8 shortcuts ( total 48 ). In Anna you can put up to 5*12=60 shortcuts, a 20% reduction
  2. there's no word counter in Messaging, I don't know whether I had crossed the limits or not

 

It's a great update, albeit still needs more refinement

I'm very satisfied by this update

Don't hesitate and upgrade your phone ASAP !!

OK, we have some pros and cons, though the cons seem to outweight the pros.

 

I found some videos on Youtube with E6s running Nokia Belle and it didn't look to bad after all.

 

Steve (AAS) promised to review his E6 running Nokia Belle once his E6 has been granted access to the update ... 

 

I remember they had a discussion on ***************about flashing an old firmware (Anna!) over Belle (IIRC a leaked Belle) on a Nokia E7?!?

 

My E6 still runs Anna ...

 

Cheers,

Lars

Re: Belle on E6 - first impressions

Hi

 

I have recently installed Belle on my E6. First impressions were good until i turned it off. Every time i power up my phone it asks for the security code. I can press one digit and enter and it says 'incorrect pin' or 'incorrect pin entered 5 times, please wait 5 minutes'. I go to security settings and the security isn't even switched on. I have tried reinstalling the software but its still the same. Also, when contact search is turned on sometimes when i press a key it wont start searching for names unless i turn off search and turn it back on again..really annoying when quickly trying to dial numbers

 

Anyone else had this issue?

Re: Belle on E6 - first impressions

E6+Belle+Calculator

 

Found a little issue from calculator, don't know whether its the mentioned combination only.

 

When calculating with decimal numbers, I can't use the hardkey dot ".", it won't work. After I hit the softkey "." I get the decimal part in. Good. Now when I press the hardkey "Enter" it only highlights the softkey "." and does nothing else. 

The "enter" has to be pushed from the softkey "=", and after that the hardkey "enter" works again.

 

Annoying since E6 has the hardkeys, I wouldn't like to use the softkeys at all, or least as possible anyway.

 

(Funny that there is like thousands of comments about Belle being bad and multiple problems, but I only found one official Nokia reply, not very promising?)

1) Haven't tested yet

2) no indicator on the top right corner, or something else?

3) I just (a week ago) downloaded Angry Birds from Ovi and it is working on my E6+Belle. Later versions were available too but the first was for free. Maybe you have some setting problem that disables Birds? Shouldn't be a Belle problem though. 

I first had problem finding Angry Birds, but I had messed up the phone setting. After resetting the right phone to Ovi settings everything appeared right again :smileyhappy:

Re: Belle on E6 - first impressions

I am also disappointed with the 'upgrade'. I suggest people to step up so nokia realizes it's really an issue.. The usability of this business phone is now worst then ever. Widgets are much oversized and seems they havent been customized to fit E6 screen like in Anna. Battery level is almost invisible. Google maps app is not working. The slider for blocking keyboard is oversensitive now.
So lets speak up and let Nokia realize there are some serious business users of this phone which will go to the competition after such treat..

Re: Belle on E6 - first impressions

Nokia dosen't seem to be interested in our problems.

Now my email won't sync anymore and I need to reboot every time when I wish to update my mail.
Sliding button is a horror show after the update.
Also I need to do a hard reboot every time when I want to use mobile banking.
