Re: Nokia 500 problem

Hello, Nokia I like your products very much, but not your symbiam software. Symbian has a lots of limitations and also its not good working. Many time my mobile hangs and lots of problems, scrooling also not good and many problems. I have been using Nokia 500 for 4 months and recently my friend has bought samsung galaxy y and he can play HD games through a software called Chainfire 3D but I can't. Even though my nokia 500 hardware specification is more powetfull than his samsung galaxy y. So Nokia I suggest you that you please switch to Android, otherwise you will lose your market.

Re: Nokia 500 problem

Last week I purchased a Nokia 500 handset. It has Symbian Belle OS. I was quite impressed with the specs so bought this handset but to my utter disappointment the 1GHz CPU is working like some 300MHz CPU. The mobile hangs most times, touch is not responsive, boring free apps/games, complex interface, battery backup on 3G is poor. I have a Nokia X2-01 querty mobile and Samsung 525 bada OS mobile. X2-01 is working better than this Nokia 500 and the samsung smartphone is lot better than Nokia 500 in terms of battery, earphone sound, camera picture quality (even though it's just 3.2 megapxl) touch response is better.


so, is this just with my Nokia 500 or you all are facing the same issues??

Re: Nokia 500 problem

Symbain Belle does NOT solve any issues. I've updated to Belle few months ago.
Till now I'm frequently experiencing common problem as mentioned above:
phone hangs, screen goes black after few seconds, only thing I can do is remove battery, then start.

 

Second thing: phone restarts itself for no reason.

So please don't say things like 'wait for belle, everything will be ok'.

It's funny how "updating your software" is a help for every problem. It's like:
A. "I have a problem, phone hangs, battery issues, whatever"
B. "Please update your software, it should help"
A. "I updated, didn't work"
B. "Well, software is software"

Re: Nokia 500 problem

@Cellboi I think your phone's screen have a problem because my phone's screen sensitivity is higher then Samsung wave 525 and camera quality you can test in dark light time just capture a photo and see which is better.

Re: Nokia 500 problem

Samsung Galaxy Y can play HD games using Chainfire 3D even that doesn't have GPU but that phone has 512 MB RAM which help it to run HD Games.

Re: Nokia 500 problem

i have nokia 500 for a week now and had all the same problems. Installing software thru ovi suite solved rebooting. Then got to ovi store/installation preferences and select apps to install on any drive than c: ......now get a new sim card put it in your phone....then ave your service provider add your imei# to your data account. These things made my phone work very well.

Re: Nokia 500 problem

I KNOW! IM DONE WITH NOKIAS. i mean i had so much respect for this ocmpany but after the experience with the Nokia500, i cant take it anymore. 

I exchanged my phone for the same one atleast 2 times already cause of the constant freezing problems. I factory reseted my nokia500 also atleast 3 times, but it still didnt help :smileysad:

The camera sucks like no tomorrow, some apps dont open, i dont receive texts until i remove the battery and put it back, the phone doesnt turn on when im receiving a call and many more problems :'(

 

Whatever, im changing my phone soon even if i have to pay 80 bucks according to my phone company, but its better than staying with this phone for one more month:smileysad:
