Re: List of Belle additions/corrections... - see response from a Nokia moderator

[ Edited ]

I f you are interested to see some responses from  Nokia (michaels and harmanni) relating to complaints about the Belle update then browse the posts here:

 

/t5/Eseries-and-Communicators/NOKIA-MODERATORS-ONLY/td-p/1318965/

 

At least it tells us that Nokia is looking at what people are writing in these discussion forums and passing it on to the programmers.

 

There is no clear indication of when or what (if anything) will be changed/fixed for current N8, E7, E6, etc. owners who now have Belle on their phones.

Re: List of Belle additions/corrections... - see response from a Nokia moderator

After writing a one word text message you cannot send that message if the word is highlighted for changing (underscored). A space has to be added to allow the message to be sent.
During a call if another call connects the second call automatically goes to speaker phone and cannot be switched back to non speaker phone mode.
Messaging interface only allows adding of contacts upon pressing 'send' rather than being able to add contacts at start of message.

Re: List of Belle additions/corrections needed

Anna was using GSM or Wi-Fi data connections on demand

Belle offer onlu ON/OFF function

When it is allways on- it drains the battery, when it is allways of - it's frustrating to switch it on/off

 

Previously touching battery indicator - You could figure out a % of left battery life - now it is no possible (at least i could no find)

 

Opera Mobile 12, that is available from OVI do not work. Trying to install it - gets tu failure and it is shown after in OVI shop[ intall histori ar failure. Same with Opera Mini

Somehow Opera Mobile 11 works...

Nokia 1611, 2210, 3110, 5110, 6210, 6310, 6310i (up to these models totally satisfied)
Then don't remember model, then E50 (mostly happy), then N97 mini - phone with briliant keyboard, but poor touchscreen, then business phone E07, phone that can not make a photo of contract, invoice or business card. poor design of usb port and 5 months at service did it - my nowadays phone is Apple. Company gave me Asha 300, so frustrating, that I use my old E50 instead...

Re: List of Belle additions/corrections needed

I would just like to suggest few changes to the E7 if they are possible

1)RSS widget(Extremely Important)

2)Option to make widgets and shortcuts translucent(Some opaque widgets look seriously ugly)

3)Ability to choose the charging LED as notification light on an E7(if technically possible)

4)Ability  to automatically group images in albums sorted by date or alphabets in the gallery

5)The browser looked better in anna with the minimalistic navigation bar.

6)Ability to overwrite original image in photo editing(Not much important but still a nice feature to have)

 

Another change i would suggest if possible.When we hold an icon or file its shows list options what you can do with it.I would like if instead of showing list in an upward or downward manner if it is possible that list of options opens up in a circular way around the point the finger is pressed.

I hope you look into these issues as some of them affect user experience,other than that belle is an absolute joy.

Re: List of Belle additions/corrections needed

Messaging should give the option of opening to folder view

Difficulty sending a one word text message- send icon faded out

Remove the label tags from icons on the homescreen

Anna style notification widget

3G toggle

Smaller widgets- different skins

Pop ups re situations & deactivating power saving are too invasive

Store- should be able to hide downloads so you can keep browsing the store instead having to watch the process

Camera- doesn't save settings, Pictures suddenly being saved to a random folder as opposed to the Images folder

Gallery- After spending time putting pictures in folders, they disappear from folders following power cycle

 

When can we expect a MUCH NEEDED patch?!!

Re: List of Belle additions/corrections needed

9 - The must is still sorted by Albums, not albums or artists. Sometimes you want to listen to a single artist and you can't without messing about. The 5800 music player was good, so why not the N8. It's been a bit silly like this from Symbian^3.

 

8 - The Music Player widget is too big overall, but the buttons are too small. Not ideal.

 

7 - Normal internet bookmarks cannot be made into apps for easy access from the homescreens. 

 

6 - Unable to create sub folders.

Re: List of Belle additions/corrections needed

It would be great that "gallery" application would have more options and if it is possible the selection of folders from which files will be shown beacause it is wery annoying and looks kind a messy when all you photos, pictures, wallpapers and videos is in one place and even more annoying is that they all are sorted by date without any options to change. So it would be great to have these options. :smileyhappy:

*** Exporting Landmarks from N8 ***

LmManager will do the job. I used it to export my Landmarks to the microsd and then send it via bluetooth (Y-Browser) to my computer. It is a Standard-XML file. Look at http://store.ovi.com/content/42842

Re: List of Belle additions/corrections needed

A conversation I just had on Nokia Chat:



Reynold:

Hi, my name is Reynold. How may I help you?

Me

I would like to ask if Nokia is working on returning the missing Belle Widgets

Reynold

Thank you for contacting Nokia Care Chat.

Reynold

Can I ask first what particular widgets are missing?

Me

They are the ones featured in your promotional videos for Belle, and those found in the leaked pre-releases of Nokia Belle. The different sized clocks, 3G toggle, the larger calendar widget which shows more than just one entry...

Reynold

Okay. Can you give me a couple of minutes while I am checking my resources?

Reynold

I have not heard from you for a few moments. Do you still require my assistance?

Me

I'm still here. You were looking for resources.

Reynold

Okay. Thank you. Please wait.

Me

2g/3g toggle

Big Calendar

BT Toggle (BlueTooth)

Cellular Toggle

Mobile Data Tracker

Small Music Player

Offline Toggle

RSS Feed

Visual Bookmarks

These are just some listed in the Nokia forums.

Reynold

Okay. Thank you for providing that additional information. Regarding this one Nokia is currently working for this widgets to be available again on the phone. As well as for the new Nokia Belle update.

Reynold

I have not heard from you for a few moments. Do you still require my assistance?

Me

That is good to hear. A representative from Nokia might want toto mention it on the forums too as lack of communication is causing doubt, confusion and rumours. There if this post can be brought to the attention of Nokia software engineers please:

Me

/t5/Software-Updates/List-of-Belle-additions-corrections-needed/td-p/1328167

Me

A little word to say they will look into this would go a long way too

Reynold

Thank you for providing those information.

Me

Thank you for you're time

Reynold

You're very much welcome.

Reynold

Is there anything else that I can help you today?

Me

That is all for now. I hope we hear from you on the forums :smileyhappy:

Reynold

No problem. :smileyhappy:

Reynold

If there will be no other concern, thank you for contacting Nokia Care Chat and have a nice day. Bye!

Me

Good bye

Re: List of Belle additions/corrections needed

SUMMARY of BELLE CHANGES/CORRECTIONS/ADDITIONS/FIXES
March 25, 2012, 6:00pm US time

This list is better than the previous lists.Thank you Mike_Myers_N8.
Also I noticed one thing yesterday. My friend has E6 with Belle. His E6 does show captured videos and all received videos via bluetooth/USB etc in "Videos". But my both N8s do not show any of the captured videos or received videos in "Videos". They appear only in galley. I think there are different problems with different versions of belle for different phone models and also different versions of same model.

Re: List of Belle additions/corrections needed

Hi Mike_Myers_N8,

I have one more thing that is irretating me... When I receive a message, and I click on "Show", it opens the inbox screen, and shows the message with a red star next to it, indicating the new message. Now, without opening the message I want to delete the message. I cannot so this if the message was not opened first. If I open the message and go back to the view to see the messages, I can then tap and hold to delete it. This cannot be done when the message is still unopened.

Thanks

Re: List of Belle additions/corrections needed

Correction.

Sorry, its not when you tap on "Show" on a new message. its when you tap "Exit", then use the notification drag down on top of the screen, and then select the "New message". It is then when you cannot tap and hold any message.

Re: List of Belle additions/corrections needed

Hi,

Another thing on one of the items on the list:

MESSAGING--Messaging interface only allows adding of contacts upon pressing 'send'

This is not a problem, or at least not on my phone. T add a contact, just tap the "To" icon, then add the contacts you wish... ? Am I understanding the problem here?
