The fact that many applications don't run is not a bug. They don't run because the e6 has a different screen resolution thn the other devices running Symbian ^ 3. Nokia has been working with developers to port more of the applications. It is a known and predictable phenomenon, not a bug.
1)I hope you tried with different memory cards, to assert that E6 doesn't work with them.
2)I think it's not a phone-bug, but it's a software-bug.
3) Backward incompatibility is a bug?
4) I don't notice faults in pinch to zoom.
1. Yes, tried with the same result.
2. Yes, its a software bug. But the default software shipped with the phone *should* work. At the very least it should give a better error message. Anyway, its a bug and it needs fixing. Its been misbehaving since Symbian ^3 launched. Its never worked on my N8 either.
3. Backward incompatibility is a huge deal for Symbian. Its a reason I stick to it. At the very least Ovi Store should give an incompatible warning.
4. Try mobile versions of Gmail, Facebook etc. On a Google search result page, pinch to zoom is fine. But not on the pages mentioned.
All previous Symbian ^3 devices have a screen resolution of 640x480. The E6 has a higer pixel density. Given that most programmers don't check for dpi, would that make a difference?
not true. All the other s^3 phones have 640 x 360 resolution. Check your information before you buy.
Fair enough. But how does screen resolution make application compatibility an issue?
small issue, but still an issue. For example: if i choose menu option and try to close it with right "exit" button it will disappear from screen, but still will be available in background as opened application. So its possible to close it from "Open applications" or use left exit options, which is quite annoying. What about u guys ? are u have this issue?
Some already covered but here's mine:
1. Extreme waste-of-time notification light
2. When locked, phone doesn't light up when I get a text or email
3. Can't see who has text you (liked the little envelope you had on the E72 that said who it was), you have to open it before you can see anything.
4. Same with missed call, you have to look at it.
5. No email notification whatsoever. ???
6. Can't seem to find a way to sync my Hotmail sub-folders to view & when I tried to log into my Nokia messaging account, it tells me the username doesn't exist! But that may be a Hotmail thing, will be investigating
7. If you type a text & accidentally hit one of the function buttons, you lose your text (doesn't save into drafts like it used to)
8. Battery is almost dead by the end of 1 day & that's with general browsing, txting or email, I don't do games or anything like that. But that may be because it's new & will take a few cycles to "settle down"
9. Social app - don't see the point, as on Facebook it doesn't notify you if someone "likes" your post or comments (like Blackberry does) - only way to get notifications is through email or txt like normal.
Otherwise, am quite happy (bought it mainly because of the larger memory, got fed up with my E72 sticking)

Adding two more the bug list
1. The Mail App - Why does it take forever to retrieve a single mail? I have the application set to retrieve headers once every hour. When I select a mail to view it takes a few minutes to download the mail. The time to download the mail gets even longer if there's more than 1 mail box in the mail application.
2. Phone sounds/ring tones - There are multiple issues here. If you switch profiles from say, General to Meeting and then back, at times the phone doesn't make any sounds set in the General profile.
Regarding the notification light....I know much has been said about it, but I find it alright..frankly.

Yeah, the battery life is something that could be better. However, I'm used to charging my phone twice a day as my previous phone was an N900
If you want to close an application completely (not just switch focus and leave it running in the background) use the end call key. This works for most applications (but not all).
This is not a bug, by the way. It is how the phone works and is explained in the manual.
ok. the main menu is not an app. this is one of the exceptions that i mentioned that is not fully closed by the end key. opera and skype are other examples. this is how symbian has always worked to my knowlegde.
And there is also unfamous bug with keyboard backlit, which doesn't work properly if screen brightness is below 2 level.
I've spotted another problem with notification area of home screen - it likes to hide sometimes. Dunno why... .
