2 Nokia Handset Annoyances that Need to be Checked

Being the largest handset manufacturer, Nokia undoubtedly has lots of work on their hands. There is also no doubt that they manufacture the most superior handsets in terms of hardware in the world. However, there are two annoyances on Nokia phones that I cannot understand why they should be there in the first place.

First is the inability to charge my battery via the USB cable. As to the wisdom behind such a decision, I do not know, but one thing is for sure: it is very annoying. I live in a part of the world where the power supply is not consistent or reliable. In times when I cannot use the charger, I expect to be able to transfer some battery juice from my laptop to my phone. Nokia however, thinks otherwise. Why so Espoo?

Then second, why do I need to reset the date and time whenever I take out the battery? Of course some of the phones have auto-update of the date and time, but it’s still pointless to be nagged to reset the date and time anytime you take out the battery. 

Nokia already has a Herculean task ahead, given the rapid ascension of Android. Checking certain petty annoyances would come in handy in their new fightback strategy.

  1. Re: Battery charging via USB, it should work — at least it does on the Nseries devices I've owned.

    And re: date & time, can you not set your Nokia to grab that off of the network?

    I guess this stuff depends on the specific model you're using, but I thought these features were common to all Symbian devices, at least…!
