Thanking you.
one thing i want want to say ,android dont have any problem and bugs but the apps on market are buggy and those are decreasing the performance of android devices.so be carefull installing untrusted apps.use oly stable apps.
most of the problem posted here are regarding GPS and battery backup.
so here are some solutions:-
GPS provided in this phone is good but most people dont know how to use.this weekend we had a trip to kerala and beleive me this phone really helped us in navigation.for using gps the things u need are:-
1. u should have internet connection for downloading the maps.
2. u should be in open space.
3. if u want fast sattelite locking use agps feature.just enable it.in my phone with agps it takes only 10 second to lock and that is when i was travelling with 80kmph speed.
while travelling in car i was getting location accuracy with in 100metre and at standing position it was as good as 3m. that figures are decent not excellent for a mobile phone because this is not a dedicated navigation console.
1. keep ur gps,wifi,bluetooth off when there is no need.many times i dont know they are on or off,because so many apps in android use these services like layar,navigation,maps etc.
2. in india 3g is not there so put your mobile on gsm mode.
go to settings->wireless and network->mobile networks->network mode.
3. if u dont want real-time connection with google account then keep auto sync off.Doing that will improve battery backup significantly. so go to setting->account and sync and uncheck background data.
4. use task killer application etc or there is a option running services in settings->applications.make a shortcut of that on desktop.that will be very helpfull in exiting processes.
last use your smart phone smartly.we need to learn multitasking android.
