E6 lack of shortcuts, unintelligent sound handling...

E6 lack of shortcuts, unintelligent sound handling ++

I am getting on quite well with Belle on my E6, really, and I replaced Anna in a deliberate move to move on...

 

BUT. Coming from an E72 preceded by an E61i (both of which I still use) I have gripes.

 

The lack of Bluetooth or Silent keypad shortcuts I could easily live with if the dropdown menu worked at _every_ swipe, but it doesn't.

The longer Space bar has been commented here before. I've used a short spacebar for five years with no issues and I don't have smaller-than-average fingers or thumbs. I now have to use the Symbol key to get '&' and a comma.

When I listen to Internet radio on my E72 (which also has a more sensitive 3G antenna than my E6 BTW) it does intelligent things like: not cutting off the sound until I have selected headphone/line ... When I get home and unplug my headset or the cable to my Sony car radio audio, the sound immediately comes out of the speaker.

Not on the E6, which even requires me to un-pause the media player. If you are streaming radio you don't always get the signal back immediately and easily lose a couple of miniutes before getting back online - or lose the rest of a show if you paused it at some stage.

 

So here's a few things for the wish-list.

Oh, and I can't listen to Internet radio or podcasts on my (Nokia BH-216) Bluetooth headset any more, either.

Please let me know if any of my non-hardware-related comments are bugs...

Actually it has shortcuts. Long press "*" for Bluetooth and long press "#" for Silent.
