Okay. So it's clear that a lot of us are having severe performance issues and/or crashes with our Nokia 6.1.
Now what I wanna know is; Like the issues with Wi-Fi and random reboots people are having, could this also have been caused by the May security update?
In my case I have a TA-1043 running build 2:22A (May security update) that is now almost exactly 2 months old, for at least the first 2+ weeks I was using it without any real issues and then the last 2-3 weeks it's been near unusable, severe lag out of nowhere when even doing the simplest tasks such as app switching, to hanging/freezing and having to literally soft-reboot or wait for the SystemUI to stop responding.
What i hope to gain from this thread is to make Nokia/HMD Global aware of these issues, and for us to find out what our devices have in common.
So if you experience any of these issues yourself, please reply with:
If this is indeed an issue with the May security update. It's quite frankly unacceptable. And now what, we just gotta wait for them to push the June update and hope that it's fixed? At least that's what I gathered from talking with the Nokia support. Thanks.
I'v asked several week ago to put phone details when having a problem to find similarity. Unfortunately most people drop their questions/complains without details. And those are the decent people......
I also have a TA-1043 running build 2:22A (May security update), bought April 14th. Still working perfect. So, it's not per definition a bug in the May patch. There's more to that. There are many combinations possible; county, provider, network, model etc. what can cause the problem. People don't realize the difficulty of making firmware that applies to all combinations. I'm sure after the June update a part of problems are still exist. Maybe over a half year.
Reading this forum since april, it looks that model TA-1043(Western Europe?) is the most reliable one.
Thanks for the all replies. June patch is already rolled out for the 6.1? was not aware of that. Have there been any official word if these issues should be fixed, or do we now next to nothing?
@Kisho So this could possibly be related to the modem, among other things. In my case these issues occur on Wi-FI as well. I'm gonna experiment with location and Wi-Fi/mobile data turned off though and see if that might make any difference.
@MaxH Yeah I'm aware it's a very complicated issue, and how tricky firmwares can be; that there'a a lot things to take into account. But getting down the basics might be better than nothing.
I'm using TA-1043 with build number 00WW-2-22A. I've had the phone for around two months now, here are the problems I'm facing:
1) the biggest one are the multiple camera issues, from it hanging while taking pictures, the phone restarting when it hangs, third party apps that use the camera being unuseable sometimes
2) Slowdown that happens every once in a while, but is really bad when it does
3) Calls being generally really poor experiences, audio cracks, the voice is really low sometimes etc, even when reception is not a problem
4) Random reboots at times
The problems have all been there since the beginning apart from maybe number 4)
Another user might've discovered a temporary fix for some, if not permanent.
I've used my 6.1 for 3 days now without experiencing any severe lag or crashes. It's almost miraculous.
