You can create your own folders to arrange them.
AnonD-22351, 19 Feb 2012Dear Dr.Bidhan:
Really i didnt get you still... Earlier in in OFFICE folder we use have calc... moreHi C7-zak,
The folder options have changed in Belle. Unlike Anna which had for example the applications folder and another office folder in that, now all your apps will be flat in the Menu (like in N9,iOS and Android). You can create new folders and move your apps to them but you cannot create a folder inside another folder anymore.
Secondly, the path for saving videos/images on the memory card/mass memory have changed, they are no longer in Images/Videos, but in a new DCIM folder. This means that videos you have on your memory card will not show up in gallery now, but will show up in the Videos app, and videos recorded by you will not appear in the Videos app (like it used to in Anna), but will show up in the gallery with ur pics. Thats the only difference with images and videos.

in belle For power saving mode u hv to download battery monitor......some times it may give u false informn. Bt overall its a usefull app
Thanks for you opinions,John and Anonymous, sounds good! My hangups about Belle are that I will lose all my apps on C: (about 50 in my case, installed there by default) and from what I hear the widgets are larger but less practical and have lost the clean functionality of Anna..also minor niggles like the way the menu has to be arranged and no option for widgets online/offline..
But from all accounts I've heard,the new OS is more stable and smooth. I just don't like the idea of restoring all my apps back. Will a restore option work?
Thanks a million for all your good advice and opinions guys, really appreciate it!

Videoes are no longer in gallery.
The menu doesn't have folders but u can create yours.
Upgrading to Belle is like buying a new and vastly improved phone.
If you liked anna you're gonna love belle.

I wants to down grade from belle to anna...plz hlp...
GadgetLover, 18 Feb 2012I think the difference between updating from Symbian^3 to Anna vs. from Symbian Anna to Belle,... moreYou can still create folders in belle,
If you try the update you'll know its a no brainer.
I have created shortcuts and widgets for all the items in menu on my 6 homescreens so i don't have to open d menu anymore.
I couldn't recommend nokia over android or iphone with anna but with belle the experience is so great, my time on anna now seems like a nightmare,
I am no longer afraid to give people my phone to play with because i know it won't freeze up like anna or develop an attitude.
Which apps do you want to make sure are working? I could confirm for you.

I think the difference between updating from Symbian^3 to Anna vs. from Symbian Anna to Belle, is that the former was a no-brainer, updating from S^3 to Anna was the natural thing to do, and the phone had a lot of improvements as a result.From Anna to Belle brings things we wished for earlier like resizeable and free-positioning widgets and more homescreens, but on the downside, removes some functionality from Anna (Menu and folder settings, ?flv playback, loss of apps and compatibility in some instances etc).
You would still have a great phone with Anna, but it wouldn't be a superlative phone with Belle. I guess its the future apps with only Belle compatibility that will dictate if some people will update or not; I wish the decision was as easy as from S^3 to Anna.

Hello all C7 users... I have owned One Nokia C7 running on Anna and just s came to know that Belle update is available for C7 as well. One of my friend told me about this forum. So Im here to ask all those who updated to Belle that- IS IT WORTH TO UPDATE TO BELLE. I hope you all will give me the true and reliable information.
I think buddies like Dr.Bidhan.Ashman,GadgetLover etc etc all are updated to BELLE.Waiting for all your valuable replies SOON. Thanks
