Frank, 11 Apr 2012you need to try something new. Nokia is 2 years back of any android and 5 years back of any io... moreYou probably haven't used nokia with belle before to say something like. Better try using 1 first, i have a c7 and a gal wonder phone, Nokia's way better in giving costumer support than any android phone around, just like my c7 that went to many updates even though its more than a year old unlike my wonder which is only 6 months and already been abandoned and will not get any ics. Try a nokia first before saying that. Ok dude.
I'v got the new 'belle feature pack 1' for my 701
1.processor boosted-better graphics, better scrolling,no lag, a perfect update
2.new improved and usefull widgets,but the clock apps are a waste feeling
3.little change in camera interface
4.new awesome task manager
5.improved options menu and pop up window
6.music player interface is having a little change .''appears a dolby option when connecting to headset''
7.video player lost options to change aspect ratio manually it only zooms when double click ,the best fit aspect ratio is lost and the details option too..it was a pretty usefull tool ,(i think it's a big mistake)
8.changes in settings data
9.lost user guide option from the options menu,need to open it separately
10.e mail applications still have attachment inserting problems
all are good exept some of these minus points....i think nokia will solve these with the carla update
i installed fp1 on my 701 ., and which i found good:task bar ,dolby music, speed and touch accuracy improvements , few widgets ..
Which i felt bad: no true multi-tasking ,no ui changes for camera video player , web updated ??
[deleted post]Hello friends ,
yes there is maybe more better phones than nokia ,
But I used nokia more than 4 years it's simple and you can do any thing which is basic and too much more by nokia phone.
other companies provide too much more app. but no need for more app. (useless App).
So I like nike phone and already it's supported untle 2016, and later nokia will have Wp .so i hope it will be very good.
Goodluck friends with your chioses.
Nokia 701 user.
Good response from Nokia.
I know N8 won`t receive this pack.
But I hope it gets other minor update at least
to fix the camera quality they messed and add more widgets..
FP1 update breaks Google Mobile Maps (doesn't load anymore).
[deleted post]I sense a troll big time, everyone is talking about the updates and the UI changes & your comments are totally against what the news is about, everyone has their needs for phones, that's why we have different phone manufacturers, if you like other manufactuers then support them,simple, don't be on the forum just bashing because users made different choice.
[deleted post]there is nothing better than nokia 808. you must simply want that functions. i am not interested in games and stupid apps, i am making many random photos and videos, i am an image chaser. i listen music very much on headphones and i love symbian. i swear on my mom i had samsung galaxy s2 and i do not like it, especially android i do not like it.
owing Nokia 701, FP1 done successfully, the only very good thing I got is speed, fast indeed, scrolling is very smooth but on the other side widgets are so bulky & most of them r just on & off switches. Switching b/w portrait to landscape screen is smart. SMS received messages in tread view r now blue in background looks odd with black send messages! sound is improved greatly while the browser menu is simple, comparing to previous one was mush smart! all clocks are in black colour with no other choice, new image widget is auto arranged which must be user controlled! anyway, thanks for being FP1 :), Yemen.
i m from dubai and got the update its wow my 701 is so fast now and many new things...
first the browser now is 18.104.22.168 with more option as you can save or view or send .
software v. is 112.010.1404
release is nokia belle feature pack1
product code 059H225
nokian, 11 Apr 2012y not for nokia N8 this nt fair nokia..................oh pls its time to change n8 its old and will not get this update...
Well I got my answer after using FP1 for a while in my Nokia 603. It's superfast now with some great new multitasking viewer which is amazing with a full view of apps open, loudspeaker sound just turned great you can hear everything very clearly!!! Thanks Nokia.
freeze, 11 Apr 2012Updated my 603 today, new browser, new widgets (weather widget, bluetooth widget, nfc widget t... moreDear, did you update your phone via pc suite or went to Nokia customer care? I am from Calcutta, using N8 & planning to by 701 with carala update. Your reply will help me.
To all power users, i would seriously recommend NOT updating. I updated my 603 today and the result is bittersweet at best.. You all know the good stuff about fp1, let me tell you the drawbacks. Firstly, its proving to be very difficult to hack fp1. Important apps such as Xplore are not working, some of the apps are noticeably slower than before, even opera mini has a slightly longer start up time. Asphalt 6 ran buttery smooth before, now it has a very noticeable lag. Also, the video player does not have options anymore, yes, you can't even see the video details. To me, as a power user, the update is not wortj the drawbacks :/
