Hi i was surprised a bit when GSMARENA havent given any updates after V30 released. i have been using this phone since last 8 months. and it is improving everyday. Audio quality have improved after this update. Image galary loading zooming have been much faster than before. & most importantly Web browser page loading speed, zoo & pan & ' Stability' have increased by far. i havent have a single crash while browsing after V30 upgradation. Smartmovie V1.15 made any video in avi, flv mp4 format playable on this phone. I think GSMARENA should go ahead & check these improvements & give update. camera performance under low light conditions is still a headache. probably its hardware problem & can not be sorted out.
no problems with the phone what-so-ever. it's my first phone ever but I'm loving it so much!! high res screen is awesome for gps and web browsing!! touch screen sucks to type on right after you cut ur nails really short though =/

LyCaN X, 07 Aug 2009hi all, i watch these comments with utter astonishment. how is that for the same phone, we ... moreIf you are amazed by the wide variety of perceptions, just wait until you get on a jury and begin deliberations. You will swear the other people were at a totally different trial! People look at the same single flower but see an arrangement!
In summary, the phone is great. GPS very accurate, pictures good, calls good quality. Few software handicaps like our ATT Samsung Impression. Touch screen is just right, unlike hypersensitive Impression- I couldnt use it! I really like the ability to use a stylus, even tho I thought it would be girlie before I used it. Much better using a stylus on internet pages tiny boxes, than my clumsy fingers like I must with my iTouch. Note Bluetooth doesnt work well with less than its rated V2.0 accessory, like with the Plantronics 510 (V1.5). Also, with software V21.x, the phone will start dropping calls after about 4 days of continuous on. Pull the battery to reboot & its OK. Browser works very well, battery life good. Unlock button can be activated in pockets while walking, then screen can be activating things. It needs a hard to push unlock button like the Impression. Doesnt keep asking you every three seconds if you want to spend money on a data connection like the Impression (using Google maps, etc). Google maps EXCELLENT on it!(PS- wife LOVES the Impression!)Great to use any MP3 as a ring tone.
i watch these comments with utter astonishment. how is that for the same phone, we have so many different opinions? people who love it say nokia is the best and people who hate it/love other phones say that its completely waste!!!!
i have this phone and i havent found any problems with it so far...it fulfills whatever a multimedia phone is made of...great music, affordable price , very good battery life and very good camera ( after V30 firmware)
people who wants so much eye candy and animations are better off without this phone...go for apple or samsung or htc phones...
this is a practical phone for all practical purposes..
read the review about this phone by the technically sound people of this website...stop listening to all the ******** !!!!!
i am only telling this for new people who want to buy it...read the gsmarena review and whatever they say is true..and the bugs/limitations they mentioned WILL be fixed with firmwares..

Once and for all, can anyone tell me if this phone has some ''bad'' issues, like frequent hanging up, freezing, very poor battery life, etc? After reading many opinions in this forum, I honestly don't know. I am looking for a phone to replace my LG Viewty (very nice phone), because I need with some frequency the GPS (professional reasons), so Would like to have some opinions about this phone's GPS behaviour. Thanks in advance, and a very good summer to all!
