htc_touch_pro_bugsMy HTC Touch Pro has started tearing on my patience. I’ve had this phone since early February and I have experienced too many issues/bugs for this period. This is very sad because I really like the phone; the look, the feel, functionality and usability. But simple software bugs/issues makes this phone hard to like.

I was very positive when I found that they had released a firmware update (earlier post about updating HTC Touch Pro firmware) and I thought that this would solve my issues. It did but… it also introduced new issues :(

I’m now running on the latest firmware (at least the latest that I have found on the official HTC support pages). Below I list the issues I find very irritating now:

  • The key lock doesn’t work anymore. When I press the “hangup” soft key for a while the screen just blinks and is back to normal. Before the firmware update this would enable the key lock/screen lock.
  • The new sliding functionality for reacting on incoming calls are also nice but some times it is impossible to actually slide it to the left or right (resulting in unanswered calls).
  • The white light flashing once in a while to indicate new actions that you need to respond to is flashing even if I have no new SMS or unanswered calls.
  • When I have started writing a SMS and decides to slide out the keyboard the SMS is often lost and the main menu is displayed.

htc_touch_proThis firmware update was released 16th February 2009 so it’s not very new but it solves many of the issues I have had with my HTC Touch Pro. It’s quite easy to do this update and it can be downloaded from the HTC official support site. Just follow the instructions on this page. You need the serial number to download this firmware upgrade, this is located under the battery.

What issues does this firmware update solve? It is listed 5 specific issues on the download page that will be solved by updating to this firmware version.

1. The display of TouchFLO 3D sometimes may appear cracked.
2. When taking a picture, the auto focus function may malfunction in some circumstances.
3. In some circumstances, the preview screen will become black after taking picture.
4. In some circumstances, the device may hang while loading TouchFLO 3D.
5. When hanging up a phone call, there may be a delay in the display response.

I have experienced issue 1, 4 and 5 on my phone, but after updating to this firmware version I have not been troubled any more :) and I really hope that it will stay this way. Continue reading »
