All about Symbian Belle Problems.

[ Edited ]

Hi,

Here are my full list of problems, suggestion i would like to :smileyhappy: keep infront of you.

I sent the problems via ''CONTACT US'' and to some Nokia employee via PM but they just can't....

No problem is solved in software update.

Of Course that's really tough though :smileyindifferent:

 

Here is the list,

Just copied from the sent items.

 

Please neglect if something is repeated.

 

 

1.

 

1.Screen starts blinking when a new meassage arrives!

Screen starts blinking ( ON/OFF) continuosly sometimes after unlocking keypad when phone shows new message arrived. Screen blinks at the rate of  8-10 times per second. We need to press end key to stop it.

 

2. Brightness:

In indoors or in low light conditions after Light time-out the screen brightness should be reduced, but brightness increases!!?

When we touch the screen brightness reduces back to normal. This repeats again and again. That is why i have to increased light timout to 60 seconds to avoid disturbance to eyes.
Sometimes light sensor doesnot work at all outdoors while using maps.

 

 

3.Slowdown of phone.
Phone slows during and after installing or removal of sis packages.

I have lot of apps installed from Nokia Store. 

 

4. Menu scrolling and appearance of icons in menu after installation:

 

When we have more games and apps installed , the menu won't scroll smooth. It strucks in between and jumps to last item.

 

5. Appearance of icons in menu after installing apps games takes half a minute! Ofcourse i have many apps and games installed.


6.
Side unlock key vibrations. Unlock key vibrations sometime won't vibrate. We need to goto profile and reactivate the profile. Maybe this is third party app problem.

7. Camera:
When shooting CRT TV, the screen is not stable. I can shoot without problem on my Nokia C3-00.

 

8. Camera  hidden in background and runs continously:

Battery dries very fast sometimes, the day when i use camera, i use Best Taskman by Smartphoneware. You know what camera application will be still running  in background SOMETIMES though long pressing menu key shows no Open applications!!

So camera will be sometimes running hidden even after closing it.

9. Touch screen answer key:
Touching answer key on screen won't work sometimes when there is a incoming call, apps, maps, or browsing.

Sometimes phone restarts when a call arrives at that time.

 

10. Connecting phone in mass storage mode.

When i connect my phone to computer in mass storage mode, it is obvious that all apps games which are installed on mass and memory card becomes unavailable,

but wallpapers applied from mass and memeory card will not be re applied to homescreen back as wallpaers once mass storage mode is changed or even after removing cable connected to pc.

We need to apply them manually again or we need to apply wallpapers from internal memory!

 

11.Widgets.

There is a problem with mail widget. We cannot scroll it continuously. When  we scroll it once it scrolls and while scrolling if we continue to scroll again it won't scroll but stops scrolling. So one scrolling attempt after another makes the scroll stop!!

 


These are some problems and bugs present on Symbian belle on NOKIA 701.

Please solve them and provide software update.

 

Thank You.

 

In Love With Nokia.

Here are some more bugs and problems of Symbian Belle-Nokia 701.

 

1.Widget arrangement in landscape mode gets changed on its own automatically when a widget in portrait mode successfully fits but it couldn't in landscape. We'll be not knowing what happens in landscape mode  widget arrangements!

It would be better to have auto arrangement of widgets when we move another widgets in the homescreen.

 

2.Brightness variation during video playback is bit annoying.

 

3. Music files are not actually arranged according to album name, albums are again differentiated by contributing artists.

So to group the songs of an album, We have to delete all the contributing artists of all the songs of that album or change the contributing artists name to a common name.

 

4.I don't know what happens when i swipe the album art while playing a song using music player on 701.

When i swipe from left to right for the first song of an album, the song plays from the beginning or restarts. When i swipe from right to left it plays the next song, and when i again swipe from left to right it plays previous song. Well i just don't use swiping on album. Because it is confusing.

 

5.When i connect my 701 in Ovi suite mode and browse files using Computer-Portable devices-Nokia 701-Mass Memory-Music folder and while the music player is playing music, it starts showing 'media transfer in progress' and it won't go even after closing the folder in the computer.

'Media transfer in progress' message appears specially when i enter music folder of the mass memory!!

 

So these are some more bugs and problems which i found again.

 

Thank you.

I have been taking photos of some pages.

What happens is that some images gets stored in landscape mode and some gets stored in portrait mode, though i kept the mobile in the same position while capturing. I think this is a problem with auto rotation. One more issue is with in-line editing, for example in opera mini. I we write something using prediction activated, we cannot move the cursor to previous word. To do this we need to deactivated prediction and we can move the cursor left or right towards desired words. I think this is maybe problem of 3rd party apps. This problem doesn't exists in other areas of phone like messaging. It's good. One more problem i have already sent to you is unlock or key vibration. When i remove the phone from charger the vibration doesn't work. We need to goto profiles and reactivate the profile again. Well these are some other problems i noticed in symbian belle of 701. Thank you. In love with Nokia.

Another issue is with editing contact. I cannot select the numbers easily to delete them or add some digits to theme. I cannot touch and scroll to move the editing page, i have use side scroller to scroll to bottom or top. Will post some more problems if found on Nokia 701. I hope that posting like this is not annoying to you. Thank you.

Hello,

1.

I was using wifi on my two phones today, C3-00 and 701. I have noticed that wifi was repeatedly disconnecting(There was less wifi signal) on my 701, C3-00 was accessing same wifi without any problems. Even if 701 connects for a while, speed was too slow, very less than my C3-00.

2.

Task switcher which takes snapshots of apps sometimes takes wrong snapshots when we long press home key. Will post if any issue with my 701. Thank you

 

 

6.

 

I was using nokia drop application to install apps from ovi store.

It have installed many apps but two apps were taking much time to install so i pressed end key and ended the Nokia Store client,.

Now my menu icons and their names are interchanged, but when i add them to homescreen as shortcut it looks okay.

 

7.

 

2. Game play slows down and there will be hanging effects in the game (Angry birds) during and after the email alert.

 

3.I don't know but i just couldn't find stereo video recording, i checked the with my earphones but couldn't find any stereo effect.

 

4. Nokia account signin confirmation appears on the screen whenever i boot to Homescreen. Maybe because of new Nokia store installation! But interesting thing is that the same Nokia login confirmation appears even after turning off the phone and after connecting the charger!!! Switching the phone off and connecting the charger should only display battery meter at right top of the screen, but the login confirmation appears at that time.

 

5. I had a YouTube icon in the menu. I just uninstalled it as u could play youtube via browsers itself. I later noticed that YouTube app was in Store. I downloaded it but i couldn't open it. On touching it just closes immediately. The interesting thing again is that you cannot open any Google mobile applications!!!! They just look like they are starting but gets closed immediately!! As youtube app in Nokia store!

 

6. Applications screenshots. Screenshots which appear after long pressing menu are sometimes the screenshots of the Homescreen!

 

7. File type icons in file manager are all look same for installation files like sis and java, office files etc.

 

8. It would be better to have Homescreen sort option for easy arrangement and automatic movement of other widgets when we move desired widget on other widgets wherever there is a place for movement. Well these were some of problems, bugs and some suggestions i found. I will post some more if find any. Thank you.

Symbian belle. Version 111.030.0609 Bugs.

 

1.
I found a new problem with the scroller in the gallery. When we touch the scroller and move it completely to the bottom,
the scroller moves down inside the option button!

So we cannot scroll back again! We need to touch the gallery images and scroll so that scroller comes above the option menu!

2.

Scrolling is pretty smooth compared to old software, but still seems some scrolling problem when there are more apps on the menu list!

3.

There should have been a simple text editor! Please provide text editor software in Nokia store or full version Office.
4.

Much of the productive softwares doesn't work in belle like Skype and even new updated joikuspot for example.
5.

There should have been a record option in the options while calling and 4 columns option for menu icons.
6. 
Problem with the mailbox widget is not solved. Scolling continuously in the widget is not possible.

7.
Brightness problem when we set display light timeout is still there. After 5 seconds after light timout display should become less bright but it becomes more bright -Works correct under bright light and works reverse in low light!!

 

..........................................................................................................................................

Don't think that Nokia 701 has lots of problems.

 

I don't think that these are very big problems but are bearable though.

 

 

Thank You.

 

 

IN LOVE WITH NOKIA.

 

Srikanth.

Re: All about Symbian Belle Problems.

Sounds like your phone is completely messed up.

 

Did you try to reinstall firmware again ( after delete & restore function) over nokiasuite?

 

I'm using N8 with Belle without any problem, recommend reset and reinstallation of firmware.

Re: All about Symbian Belle Problems.

Hi,

you can do a hard reset & fresh firmware reinstallation.

u cn back a full backup before doing it.

However remember, after fresh reinstalltion, if you restore from that backup, u may revert any problem existing in that backup.

So, u should do selective restores, like contacts, msgs, calander, notes. Applications & settings are NOT recommended. Its better u do manual app install fresh indiviually.

 

I hope u didnt have all these problems from 1st? If yes u can get ur phone checked at nokia care for a probable hardware problem...

Re: All about Symbian Belle Problems.

@ khanjan_701

 

The menu ket blinking without any reason is caused by standby breathing light. This can be solved by going to settings>phone>notification lights>standby breathing light>breathing light>off. If not found under settings then try looking for it at profiles but I believe that in devices running Symbian Anna or Nokia Belle it is found at settings but with the E-Series like E71 and the other E-series except E7 and other E-Series running on Symbian Anna or Nokia Belle it is foound at settings.

 

Under settings>phone>notification lights>notification light>blink light for, you can set a specific amount of time you want the light to blink when a new message or missed call arrives. Under settings>phone>notification lights>notification light>events notified, you can choose whether the menu key blinks when either a new message or a missed call arrives.

 

Hope that this solution will help you. I currently have a Nokia N8-00 and by changing that setting the menu key only blinks when a new missed call or new message arrives.

Re: All about Symbian Belle Problems.

Hi all,

 

I'm overall please with the belle but one thing annoys me beyond anything. My browser basically stopped working. I know the browser was never one of Nokia's forte, but this time it is ridiculous. It takes forever to load a page, even though I've set itexactly as it was before installing belle. Does anyone have this problem?

Thanks

Re: All about Symbian Belle Problems.

I also have N8 and ever since I've updated the system to Belle, I've been having troubles.

 

The zoom done with fingers on the photos and web pages  - NOT FUNCTIONABLE. Other glitches present as well.

 

Do you think same reinstallation of firmware will help? After experiencing this, I would honestly prefer to go back to Anna....

Re: All about Symbian Belle Problems.

Firmware reinstallation and resets are always worth a try before doing anything more drastic. Just remember to backup your data first before doing anything. Personally I've had no problems with Belle on my N8.
