The firmware update is out. Will solve some the problems mentioned here.
For those looking for the 'standby' button, it's the power button. Press once and release.
Screen blackout during call, it's the proximity sensor. Screen will come on when phone is away from your face.
GPS screen dimming, to conserve battery. Backlight will come on when there is a turn to be made.
For the Malaysian market, there's no better phone for the money. Navigation accuracy is excellent.
For those struggling with the manual, can consider a not-so-smartphone.
Is Arabic Language selection available on this phone ? and on keyboard also?
Used for 6 months.
Navigation doesnot works properly when driving from sydney to melbourne.Map screen goes blank,but speaks route instructions.
Some times Screen goes blank,no screen to disconnect call!
Poor call reception indoors,shows full signal strength outdoors and none indoors.
I have problem during call out. The screen gone blank as soon as I press the call buttom. Since I can't view anything, I can't press on "End of call" button leaving my call still on eventhough the other party already hang up.
Is there anyone who can help me on this?
