Its a big difference from anna....it runs really well, that drop down menu is really nice and that clock is also nice; with a-gps and internet connection u get almost instant positioning; 4 home-screens; angry birds :); the browser experience is also good.
I heard that the video recording (in nokia 500) after the belle update is 30 fps instead of 15 fps . is that true guys ?
i just upgraded my 500 to belle last friday. i think it took more or less 1HOUR for the whole thing to finish. anyways, here are my observations within the first 3days with belle.
let's start with the bad :(
--only one homescreen was added
--there are no other themes. i miss ANNA's themes with the different colors
--some apps were gone
--the battery indicator is bad. with ANNA, you have line bars and you can check the battery life in percentage
--the analogue clock is not big enough
--folders for APPS,GAMES,TOOLS,OFFICE,etc were gone. though you can make your own folder, i still love the classic nokia having those kinds of folders
--apps available in ovi still *ucks. and i think less than with anna
--i know you probably dont want to hear this, but i think the restarting problem is unfortunately back. but i know nokia can fix this like how they did it with anna, or i guess reduced it
now with the good :)
---it is indeed smoother, whether you swipe in the homescreen or especially when you scroll down on the menu, it is a lot smoother
---the pulldown notification bar is really awesome. very easy, very handy
---a touch button is now available for opening the menu. i love this since i really hate using the hardware button for opening it, it feels like it'll break.
---shortcuts and widgets in the homescreen is wonderful. though it's a bit complex and not as easy to edit in anna, it's still great i can say with variety sizes and putting in different areas
---nokia gives a surprise gift for giving us ANGRY BIRDS. i appreciate it though i feel like they only did this to compensate for their shortcomings for the "special nokia 500" and their users. i think it would be better if they also included fruit ninja. lol
all-in-all, it has better interface and functionality, better than anna in general. and i hope nokia will fix the remaining problems soon. hope this post can help you out. go for belle :)
*p.s. sorry for my english^^
