Nokia 5800 v21 Firmware Change Log
We just posted the new v21 Firmware for Nokia 5800
My Buddy GerryMoth at NokiaAddict has posted a rather interesting change log he discovered while updating his Nokia 5800 to the v21 firmware
1. Quicker booting up – It seems to let you ‘take control’ a lot quicker than before.
2. As mentioned before you can make the menu button ‘breathe’ when the phone is in standby. It will flash twice if there is a missed call, message or email.
3. Music Player is showing BIG cover art – something that annoyed me in V20 was the fact the cover art was shrunk.
4. No longer switches predictive text off after you’ve used the Full Screen QWERTY keyboard and gone back to the regular keypad.
5. ‘Applications’ has been renamed ‘Apps’ – ‘Music Player’ is now ‘Music plyr.’ (These could be due to it using HK firmware?!)
6. Still no Widgety goodness on the home screen – it’s as it was in V20.
7. Web Browser isn’t working!!! I will try doing a hard reset I think.
8. Camera wise, there doesn’t seem to be any image improvements IMO – but it seems to work a little bit quicker.
9. Not had chance to test sound through a headset yet – I have personally had issues in V20 with a Stereo Bluetooth Headset so will be interested to check this out.
10. I think the handwriting recognition is improved – I’ve not used this much, but it seems better.
11. During text entry pressing ‘*’ key brings up a fullscreen selection of characters.
Yep – the web browser WAS broken – a hard reset (undoing all of the UDP) – fixed it though.
I must say the phone is noticeably ’snappier’, the Theme Effects seem quicker, as does the screen rotate.
