Re: What 'WE" need from NEXT 5800 FIRMWARE!!

what I want in the new firmware is 

 

1. Widget or preferably more options on the homescreen with landscape mode

2. Better camera (can't we have face detection? Samgsung with the same platform has one)

3. A tad bit more faster

4. Having Kinetic scrolling is a good Idea, Makes the phone look more smooth

5. Wifi dropouts fixed

6. better browsers

7. SKYPE preinstalled 

8. Music Keys on the home screen when music starts. Even Nokia's new touch screen (Xpressmusic) has it.

9. Better video playability without that cuts in between

10.Better sound

Re: What 'WE" need from NEXT 5800 FIRMWARE!!

themes are a matter of downloading or designing, there are thousends of themes you can download from the internet.

And if you want to create your own,Use cabride UI, from nokia u have to download the s60v5 plugin for that, if not, make them online, guess what! we can have animated themes even, google for MyOwnskin!

 

gud luck, and yes Camera should improve far more. thing is hardware is there, so what Nokia can do is accelerate the quality by firmware.

Re: What 'WE" need from NEXT 5800 FIRMWARE!!

I really need widgets in the main screen. Nokia dont differenciate 5800 and N97 with widgets. That's really lame and disappointing. Actually I got fooled. In few ads and pictures you find widgets in the homescreen and without checking online I went and bought one. Anyways officially this will be the last Nokia phone I buy. Nokia needs to impress me then I'll be back.  High Time Nokia starts interacting with their customers.

Re: What 'WE" need from NEXT 5800 FIRMWARE!!

You lot have completely missed the point.

 

No firmware updates will cure the intrinsic problems that you have with the 5800, the problem lies not with the firmware, but with the hardware, the CPU is running at a pathetically slow 369MHz, the N97 isn't much better at 434 MHz, without the power in the engine room (in this case the CPU) you can make all the refinements you like in firmware, it won't make a jot of difference!

 

There's only one place for a 5800 & that's the recycle bin.

Re: What 'WE" need from NEXT 5800 FIRMWARE!!

Ive had this handset for about two weeks now, overall it is a nice phone :smileyhappy:

 

For me I would primarily like to see:

 

-An option to have the front end set horizontally along with an option to choose which side shorcuts are on etc(for us left hander's)

 

-Left 'hander' layout option, not that necessary for using the phone upright but a must for using the phone horizontally.

 

-When scrolling through menus in particular contacts it would be good to see the highlighted name scroll as you do, as this would save having to highlight by pushing the name and then push it again to access it etc.

 

-To be able to alter the media bar shortcuts or have a few more on the homepage :smileywink:

 

Thats it from me!  :smileyhappy:

Re: What 'WE" need from NEXT 5800 FIRMWARE!!

While changing the ringtone you have to scroll across all the music stored on the phone. With an 8GB memory card thousands

of clips are stored. so it is a hard task to choose a specific ringtone. After all it is an express music phone so It will be better

to have two folders one for songs and the other for ringtones and only those have to appear in the menu where we choose our rongtones.

Re: What 'WE" need from NEXT 5800 FIRMWARE!!

Yeah.. Please give the amazing user interface features of 5530 such as kinetic scrolling, advanced homescreen and full touch scrolling for us early adopters of 5800xm. As you know, 5800 is still selling, and selling very very well. I bought it and recommended it to two of my friends too! Its life is no where nearing end, its still got two good years to go! I suggest you bring these software features to 5800 and increase its sales even further!!!

Re: What 'WE" need from NEXT 5800 FIRMWARE!!

Oooo: there's loads of things I'd like changed!

I'd like to see some updates to the S60v5 music player. The 5800 is, after all, part of the Xpress Music range! Browsing though long lists of artists and songs is tedious (but would be easier with kinetic scrolling!), so an updated interface would be a welcome change. How about browsing by album art/artist image/song title in a similar way to the 3D wall in Nokia's Photo Browser? Or at least Album Art tiles, as in the Nokia Music desktop program.

I'd also like to see a "Delete all listened-to" option in podcasting, or even better, an auto-delete of old podcasts. The 5800 great at managing and downloading podcasts, this would just round-off it's features.

This has already been mentioned, but here it is again. I don't seem able to paste WEP keys when adding new WLAN connections. The field seems to be locked to simple character entry, which is a pain for long strings of random characters! Fix it Nokia!

I find the drop-down Media Bar really handy, although it would be even more useful if I could customize the shortcuts displayed. I realize that this is possible with a 3rd party app, but who wants to pay (and use more RAM by running extra apps!) when Nokia can add this functionality easily itself?

Again, already mentioned, I really miss the "mark several" option from S60v3. Marking multiple contacts, messages, making playlists, etc, is a nightmare on the 5800.

Did I already mention kinetic scrolling?! (who hasn't mentioned it?!) Nokia pulled it off pretty well in it's internet browser. Why not phone wide?! The Kinetic Scrolling in Google Maps and the latest version of Opera Mini make the 5800's screen a joy to use. The phone would be A LOT better if it was deployed across the UI.
