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??
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"
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
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
this is the last time when i bought a nokia, they are sucks, i bought a nokia 500, no support, no workable software, my gps all the times want internet connection, the web browser usually crash, music player cant play sometimes mp3s, i cant install softwares, cant use the phone, usually in 1 day its freeze 30times or more... i take it and crashed this noobphone ... if you wanna buy any nokia... you will burn your money... you will buy a big rack of shi.t, and if you buyed it... throw in trash... choose a better phone----> like the alcatel they made a better smartphone... ( oh yes the alcatel they never made good phones, but better then this noobphone)
