"...remember that Android OS is based on Java..."
You are a bit wrong - Android is based on Linux, not Java. These are the apps that are written over a Java core by those lazy "software developers" who prefer not to bother with low-level programming. So basically Android is doomed due to this approach - develepment of fancy and eye-catching apps that demand a LOT of CPU power to perform simple tasks.

Nobody I know who's updated to PR 1.2 has any issues though I have read about some people having issues. I'm waiting for PR 2.0 too, cos the upgrade seems to finally make the C7 what it should have been from the beginning. Cheers.
why, 31 Mar 2011hey man..you have the purple tint issue right??why don't you bring your phone to NCC...i read ... moresad to say, I think you also have that purple tint issue. You shouldn't see brown or purple colors on that test image. Instead those colors should be gray to dark gray. try setting your clock to analog then slide lock your phone, then press the menu key..if half of the clock is purple in the setting of 50% brightness...we have the same issue dude. I've no plans to bring it
to NCC as mine is not that bothersome (barely noticeable). I've seen 10 posts of different persons bringing their phone to NCC and ended up having their screen replaced but still with the same issue. I guess I'll just have to wait for a better fix.I'm positive that it is just a software issue involving the ambient light sensor. I'm using light control app by the way while watching movies as it bypasses the light sensor. While that application is turned on..I don't see any of that purple discoloration even in the clock, test images, and videos.

Thanks again. what country are you from anyway?just wondering if those bugs depend on which country you are from.

Or are you sure 3g is available in your area? Lol! Because i doubt your claim especially the one that nokia care admitted to you that all c7's have 3g problem. Does it mean c7 users who never experience that problem are big liars? LOL!

I dont know why you dont have that option, my C7 does have it. Make sure all ur contacts are in phone memory and use phone memory as your default memory and all options will be available. Cheers.
hey any one can tell me who r using c7 i m goona 2 buy but before i wanaa 2 knw either it works good or not its a good phone plz get it out of me from this Q? in mahhh mind its cliking its good so can any 1 ?
john, 30 Mar 2011hey, maverick...dude I've a very dumb question, If for example, I updated my C7 to pr 1.2 and ... moreI'm surprised you have those probs, I've updated to PR 1.2 and havent faced those problems. I guess the only way back will be to reflash your device. OVI suite wont allow you to revert back to PR 1.1 or 1.0 . If you do go back, you better wait for PR 2.0 as it brings a lot of worthwhile improvements and hopefully should be stable too. I always backup before I update and havent faced any loss of data yet, on my old N82 I once had a device that refused to start after updating but things were fine once I removed the battery and restarted it, thats the only scare I've had so far.
I've updated to PR 1.1 using ovi suite and to PR1.2 OTA. OTA update is quite fast and seems to be quite effective. I think I'm likely to go with OTA for all updates unless I'm facing issues with my phone.
One last word, if ur having issues with ur phone, check the apps u've installed on ur phone and uninstall any apps you suspect or dont use or need. Like I've mentioned earlier, the only restarting issue I've faced on my phone was with the incompatible version of flip font, I had updated to PR 1.2 just at the same time as I had installed that so I was inclined to blame the updating for my problems, but as soon as I uninstalled that, things were fine.
And with my experience on the C7 , I'd advise everyone to keep ur installed app list to less than 150 in total and only compatible apps in the interest of having a stable device, unless u like living on the edge lol
Nicholas tan, 30 Mar 2011so C7 will better than C6-01? hm..but will it lag or restart automatically? i saw some comment... moreMy C7 doesnt lag or have restarting issues except when I installed an incompatible app Flip Font, and everything wss fine once I uninstalled that.

I am using Nokia C7 for the last two months, The phone is good with all of its applications but when I insert Memory

I'm worried some of my apps won't work anymore after the said update. Would you suggest waiting for pr 2.0 as you've said before that I can update from pr 1.0 directly to 2.0.Waiting for your reply dude. Thanks.
hey, maverick...dude I've a very dumb question, If for example, I updated my C7 to pr 1.2 and some problems after that update came up (hanging problems, menu key not working,low battery life, etc.)...Is it possible to bring it back to pr 1.0 (which I still have now.lol.I'm really hesitant to update because of these problems I'm reading from some people who updated their units here in the Philippines.). If so, what's the easiest step? How important is backing up before updating dude. Thanks in advance.
