Nokia Lumia 900’s camera button does not work and other complaints


FixYa have trawled the smartphone Q&A sites and collated the top complaints for a range of smartphones.

The list makes for rather interesting read, and exposes the less obvious flaws of handsets.  Who knew for example that Samsung had such problems with the microphones of their handsets?

For the Nokia Lumia 900 25% of people complained about the purple hue of the screen 20% about the camera button not waking the handset, 20% complained about battery life and another 20% about the lack of apps.

For the HTC Titan II,  screen resolution was the top complaint at 35 percent,  followed by lack of apps at 20 percent, camera quality at 15 percent and battery life at 15 percent.

Moving away from Windows Phone, the Samsung Galaxy S III has 50% of users complaining about a poor microphone which is a pretty major ding for what is in the end a phone. Another 15% complained about battery life, 15% said it got too hot and 10% had internet connection issues.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus also had a microphone problem affecting 55% of users, 20% complained of battery life, 10% WIFI issues and another 10% complained of poor usability on the Google Experience device.

At 45% battery life was the iPhone 4S’s main complaint, followed by 20% who could not connect to WIFI, 10% had Bluetooth issues and another 10% were disappointed by Siri.

The Blackberry Curve, a supposed bastion of stability and security, were plagued by random reboots affecting 40% of users.  Software errors affected 20%, 20% complained about the few apps and another 10% memory card issues.

The compilation lifts the covers which separate the PR from real user experiences.  Who except current users knew Blackberries were so buggy, making calls were difficult on Samsung handsets, Apple still did not fix the battery life issues or 20% of Windows Phone complainants did in fact find the 100,000 apps in Marketplace limiting?
