Nokia Lumia 520 though a basic windows phone,
at this price, its world class, easy to operate, grand
video shoot, great photo shoots [ day time - as could not find
flash !] wonderful intigration with internet, emails, msgs etc.
Fabulous clear voice while speaking to others. And other
person too was able to hear clearly - when had called him.
Push mail too worked easily.
Calender with alarms is very easy to use
and reminder ways are good too. But missing the exclusive
- nokia special - sms incoming alert sound. Earlier models
used to give metallic very nice sound, but un-fortunately
not this. [ still i am able to recall the Nokia 97 Mini - exclusively
Music too is, though too basic, still ok.
Only world's worst ever thing is earphone or
first thing the Ear holes of Nokia's quality control people
must be like that of Elephant - as for normal person like
me and my daughter-in- law, also my son and my legal
better-half, neither these earphones could fix, nor stays
and every 3rd second if it comes out from either ear.
Also the pin which we are supposed to attached to
handset is funny - neither easity you can fix it and with
more pressure when you insert, praying God, that
the handset should not get spoiled; and when some how
you insert ...no sound! Rorate the pin little and sound starts
and again vanishes! So one has to keep doing this
- every 7th second! Nokia being world class an organisation,
how can I say, they are wrong? God is wrong - for not
providing me additional third hand to do this!
So what one is supposed to do? Throw it and that's what
exactly I had to do.... and done it. And my mental torture got
Bought another from Electronics shop just for Rs.160/-
[less than $ 3 ] and could see it has gold plated pin, the
earphone is with sponge like additional material and size
is much smaller than my World's best Windows Phone
-Nokia lumia 520..original earphone. The pin easily and
correctly gets fixed and stays as it is, so no sound
distortion. I did not expect BOSE like earphones from
NOKIA guys but atleast better than Rs.160/- stuff and
annoyingly its ten times dirtier than the economically
OK problem solved then why am I writing this all here?
So that, Nokia org should either hang the R & D, Quality
assurance or quality control people - to stay afloat till
Microsoft thing materialises. Nokia should do this..
I mean killing about 100 employees is definitely better...
than putting thousands of employees future in dark!
OR nothing wrong to be kind.... give them 60 days
time to set right the problem, change the supplier of
earphone [ may be some ancillary unit guy is enjoying-
by fooling few in NOKIA!] ... I am sure, an organisation
of repute must be spending more than 7 to 8 Dollars or
equivalent - for this earphone part. So either its should be
done better rapidly or take all of them to gallows...
From long - say from year 2000, I love NOKIA and
I want NOKIA to be here
for 100 more years in this biz, with same respect,
even Sembian OS too had earned respect to
If some of NOKIA's R & D or Quality guys want to
kill me for this mail - they can do that, as I am ready
to sacrifice this life, for keeping up quality name
as respectful one, for NOKIA.
Need my photo to trace me, just ask me! my email
id is brooklyn100 at sify dot com.
All the best - die hard lover of NOKIA - Brooklyn Vijay
