Even after the new firmware being released the N95 still has a few bugs left! Newest addition to this list was the camera bug which was brought to everyone’s notice by Steve of AAS. This post talks about some of the others.
A new bug that I came across was that if you change the Date Separator in the Time and Date Settings found in Clock>Options>Settings to ‘ : ‘ instead of any of the others, the bluetooth misbehaves! All you gets is:
(U guessed it right) SENDING FAILED!!
I tried sending mp3 files, photos, notes and what not! Everything fails!! The phone continues to receive files without a problem though. This is not something that’s life ‘n’ death for a phone but a bug is a bug! Bug find made by Mustafa.
The Buggy Browser:
Another thing thats bugging me is the Safari Browser! In my personal opinion after the new firmware it has become worse!
What I notice is that the browser has started crashing more! I’m visiting the same websites on the same edge connection and yet I’m getting more memory full errors and crashes! I’m positive usage from my side hasn’t changed, earlier I hardly ever had a memory full error on the websites I generally visit and almost never a browser crash! Now a couple of crashes, if not much more, a day seems to be the rule even when the phone is opening relatively simpler pages. (Wifi is not even in the equation here)
Also, at times while scrolling the screen now seems to lag a little, it has become jerky, unlike the smooth scroll it had earlier. The browser sometimes even gets stuck while the pages load. I move the cursor but it just stays there. Bad bad bad. Didn’t happen earlier!
One more thing, although it’s a well known issue but still, the browser won’t let us download files that the phone doesn’t support! Eg. .rar files. WTF! Now that’s a downgrade from even a S60 v2 phone which came bundled with Opera. Please change this Nokia!! I was hoping v.11 will fix this but NO!
The Browser still doesn’t have the ability to manually open webpages in a new window even though its mentioned in the User Manual supplied with the phone.
Nokia please brings out v. 12 with browser functionality at least restored to the original level and downloading support for all files irrespective of the fact whether the phone supports them!
While on the issue of bugs, i thought i’d comment on another one that really bothers me. In the Logs, the calls have a seemingly default icon of the mobile. Eg. I have multiple entries under the same contact. If I call that person’s landline number or a mobile number i still get the mobile icon irrespective of the dialed number being stored in a particular category. Even S60 v2 phones displayed the landline or the mobile icon as the case was, so why doesn’t the N95 do the same???
All Files Option:
I just have one more to talk about. This might be on purpose but under the Gallery> All Files the phone doesn’t show music tracks! It might have been done to help speed up operations but then again it says ‘All Files’ and not something else!!
What do all of you think? Are there any others bugs that Nokia should be aware about? Do drop a comment!
