Posts Tagged ‘Rant’
Hmmm… Long time since the last blog post. I was so up to my neck in work and other stuff I didn’t have the time to write one. Didn’t have anything to write about anyway. But today I’m writing a rant just because I’m in the mood to …
Anyways as some of my twitter follwers might be aware of I’d been grumbling about needing a new phone. My trusty old Nokia N73 ME gave out and I had to get rid of it. Spent about a week or so without a phone of my own. Well yesterday I finally got a phone that I could afford and do the stuff I wanted it to do. (Or so i thought)…
Well… The phone i got was a Nokia N95 8GB. 5MP Camera, Bluetooth, Wi-fi, HSDPA, A-GPS, Symbian S60 3rd Edition with Feature Pack 1 blah blah blah (I’m sure you’ve heard about some of this before. And yes, I know the phone is nearly a couple of years old. But this one fitted my price range )…While I’m more than satisfied with its features there is something I really really hate about the bloody thing. Just shows How much a good phone can get screwed up because of one stupid mistake the designers make.
Before choosing the phone I looked through the internet and read some reviews about it. But not one… NOT ONE… not even the trusty and very detailed GSM Arena review thought about mentioning this. OK…Before you get fed up (If you haven’t already..) I’ll get to the point. Take a look at the following picture.
Notice anything out of the ordinary? Nope? Hmmm… Not even I thought of it. Take a look at the next pic.
As you can see the 3.5mm headset jack is positioned on the left side of the phone. When the headset is plugged in its poking out nearly an inch. HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO LISTEN TO MUSIC WHILE THE PHONE IS IN MY JEANS POCKET???? Forget listening to music with it in the pocket. Can’t even pocket the damn thing with the headset plugged in. I usually travel a couple of hours a day back and forth and I listen to music while doing so. Which is one of the reasons I went for this phone as it has 8GB of storage which is more than enough for me. But with this headset jack placement I have to keep the phone in my hand. Grrr…. It can be pocketed with a little difficulty of course. But the headset won’t survive the procedure for long.
Well… That’s it. I just wanted to get that off my mind. Stupid Nokia!!! Don’t ever do that again!!!
P.S :- Other than the above mentioned reason can I just say I’m positively in love with the phone?
