Don't get me wrong, Galaxy S is absolutely fantastic and is a breath of fresh air. Fast, responsive, snappy. Swype is great too - an excellent method of text entry.

But if you rely on GPS for...

Im Back

Sent my Galaxy S back to shop due to problems with the GPS.

I don't know some people are never happy, and here's the honest assesment.

I will never ever buy a phone that has just been released....

I just thought I'd log on as a long standing poster to say I've got rid of my N97 and discuss the direction Nokia need to take to regain some ground.

I don't know who the replies were aimed at, me...

I've never once thought Im gloating, but having used my new phone for a couple of weeks, it's even more glaringly obvious where Nokia are going wrong. Not that I got anything against Nokia - hang on,...

I love my N97 before it started crashing, and the GPS wouldn't work. Then I loved it a little bit more. Now Im bored of it. Come to the dark side folks.

Seriously, I hope Nokia sort themselves...

You guys really are frumpy that people jump ship from Nokia?

Customer Loyalty is dead. I've been with Nokia for 10 years and I was hoping this year they might have something different.

Nope....

Yup. I too have trundled off to Android land with a Samsung Galaxy S :-(

Wouldn't you know it though - GPS problems and not one word from Samsung.

You miss the point that Android was open source while Symbian S60 never was. When you have the open source to work out what drivers go into various things and how the OS works, PORTING (and that's a...

I don't think this is a legitimate argument either, if only because S60 was a fundamentally closed system. To take S60 and put it on other devices would probably be a no go because you would have to...

Does that mean if they found a bug in the S60 OS, then they could never fix it?

I think you are hugely incorrect myself. ROM quite frequently isn't fully ROM, it's just ROM from the user...

I have v20.0.19 or whatever, and nothing else in NSU.

But that's what makes the N97 so great, it's not an external keyboard, it's a flip out keyboard and is really great to use.

QWERTY is probably too expensive, and Im surprised they've stripped back to 16 Gig. But then with 32 Gig memory cards around the corner, it just provides a bit of flexibility in price IMHO.
