Doesn't automatically connect to my home wifi, have to stop/start on the phone. Never had this problem with my iphone, nor do I with my pc & laptops.
Wouldn't connect to my work wifi initially, had to switch the phone off/on & then it would. Have the same problem as with my home wifi though - won't automatically connect when in range. – so definitely a phone glitch
The 3 buttons on the right side aren't that responsive, often having to touch 2 or 3 times before I get a response, especially bad if you're not holding the phone in your hands. The vibration they make is annoying too, and it can't be turned off.
I say on the right side because, unlike the iphone, it only has 2 orientations.
With the extra so called real estate, you'd think the keyboard would be a dream to use, yet it feels more cramped than the much smaller iphone screen, not helped by a generally poor screen touch accuracy.
Placing the cursor in between text somewhere is frustrating, & selecting text to cut/copy is not pleasent, overall typing is not that accurate and the auto- correct/predict feature isn't the best.
Let’s hope 2.2 is around the corner, & let’s hope it's considerably better!
There are bugs galore on this thing -
Usb keeps disconnecting after a few minutes when copying lots of small files, such as music singles, but strangely ok for much bigger files such as an mp4 film in a few parts. Pc errors out if copying files to/from pc at the time. Have to wake phone, re-establish connection & start copying afresh.
Screen lock has stopped working all of a sudden. Before, I had to touch the menu button after the wake button to unlock, but now the screen becomes active with just the press of the latter, that can be easily done when in your pocket etc.
Couldn't find a setting for this so enabled the pattern lock instead.
I enabled the pattern pass lock. This worked for a week but has stopped working too. This is completely unacceptable for obvious reasons! – turns out an app I installed had bypassed the pass lock. This should never be allowed to happen!
Landscape keypad comes up shrunk quite frequently, have to turn portrait and back again to rectify.
Email - I want to be notified of a new email only. If I have unread emails in my hotmail account, it alerts me each time it fetches (set for every 30 mins), even if I've been to my inbox to have a look. (But still left unread)
It's now started telling me i have emails when i don't (inbox empty!)
Just went to watch a film using my Bluetooth headphones, says it's connected but sound is still coming out the speaker & not my headphones. Had to switch phone off/on to rectify.
keyboard is rubbish, continual inaccuracies.
Then there’s the accepting incoming calls problem, whereby you have to unlock your screen, select from the notification bar, & then select answer call – ridiculous.
I’ve just tested my voicemail, which works, except the phone doesn’t show I have a new voicemail! Good job I checked as I had 8 voicemails from friends/work that I had no idea about.
Notification volume keeps going back to full after I have turned it down. Always seems to be after I’ve used any app, browser etc.
This is probably down to the iplayer app (myplayer) and not the phone, but the picture quality is bad. It's as if the player just blows up a picture meant for a smaller screen resulting in chunky pixels. Text is unreadable so forget programs with subtitles.
There's no fast forward / rewind either - if for some reason i have to stop watching completely, i can't pickup where i left off, i have to watch the whole bloody programe again.
Plus too many other niggles to remember…
There just seems so much wrong with this phone I don’t see how it can be made good.
