Nokia tells its users how to hold a phone

Written by

Pun intended
Following Apple’s highly publicized troubles with iPhone 4 signal reception, Nokia has launched a blog detailing how users should hold their Nokias to avoid reception issues.

While Apple is advising consumers to buy a $40 piece of ghastly plastic to put around their brand new $1000 iPhones, or to learn to use their right hand, Nokia is taking a somewhat different approach.

Nokia suggests four distinct methods, dubbed the cup, the balance, thumb and finger and the lethal four edge grip. Of course, Nokia makes it perfectly clear that consumers can use their phones any way they won’t as their fingers will not cause any Nokia phone to lose a few signal bars. We agree it’s a cheap shot, but Apple was really asking for it. However, thanks to lackluster OVI services and the obsolete Symbian operating system and UI, many Nokia smartphone users could use some advice on throwing their phones against the wall. We can only say it's all in the wrist.

In related news, US law firm Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff is planning to file a federal class action suit against Apple over poor reception experienced on new iPhone 4 handsets. God bless America's legal system and her judiciary.

I use nokia forever and i must say i have only the best experience with their phones.

Not even one phone broke and i regularly misuse the phone. Every phone last for years before i change it.

Yes i tried other phones but i always came back to Nokia.

So i really don't understand your bashing of nokia

It's because of their OS and overall user interface.

They have excellent hardware, but when it comes to user interface and experience, HTC or Apple offer a much better.

I'm not a fan.

They really screwed up and failed to keep up with the competition in the touchscreen market.

S60v5 just can't hold its own against other smartphone platforms. It's obsolete, and the touch UI on recent Nokias is pathetic compared to HTC, Apple or Android phones...

Nokia N8 will change all that, at least for design of an awesome phone, and a lot better UI:

I hope you're right, for their sake...

N900. From my experience it crushed the 3GS. Cons: 2nd camera for video calling is kind of weak, doesn't have apple's gorilla glass (easily scratched), can't SMS pics, but with multiple MMS and email options easy to work around.

I had an N70, the screen stopped working after 2 years.
Then got an N96, and after 2 years, the screen died on that too.
That coupled with Symbian being a slow and horrible OS it left a bad taste in my mouth.
The N900 is an improvement though.

if only nokia pulled its head out of its ass made some good android phones

Was the warranty two years and did it break down just after?

I've used symbian next to windows mobile next to blackberry and found symbian the best. WM is horribly slow and unstable, BB horribly slow to start up, symbian just works and the ui is fine.
aiphone is an overprized toy, looks nice, but has no usability.
android I've never used so far so I can't tell.
