One of the most disappointing things I keep reading on the forums is the number of people who are experiencing instability, bugs, broken and missing features and overall sadness after security and OS updates to their beloved HMD Nokia phones. I completely understand and share your frustration with this, nothing is more disappointing than installing an update which causes more problems than it fixes. It took Microsoft several years to learn this, and in many cases they still make mistakes. HMD must learn that it is not acceptably at allto issue updates which cause problems. There is no excuse for this. This is something which we tried to explain to the marketing team for the MENA region in Dubai when I and the other competition winners were there, but I'm not sure they understood properly.
That's why I decided to post here what my priorities are for the software of my HMD Nokia phone.
- Stability - I don't want updates that introduce new bugs that make the phone unpleasant to use or even completely unusable
- Security - Don't make my device less secure by introducing new bugs in poorly tested OS updates
- Features -Don't remove or break features in security and OS updates.
All of the above have happened, I know this from the vast number of posts I read on the forum.
If you agree with my priorities, please reply below. If you don't agree, please reply and say why, I'm really interested to know (I might learn something, you might convince me!).
In the meantime, if you don't trust the HMD updates (like me) you can make it so your device doesn't auto-update by going into the developer settings (find instructions for this elsewhere on the web).
