We're looking for feedback about the Instinct HD to help determine what to include in the sconded maintenace release (MR-2) due out early 2010. Just respond to this thread and we'll the collect and analyze your responses.
I can't guarantee that everything posted here will be fixed in MR-2., but let's start the list and see how it goes.
MR-1 is tentatively scheduled for mid-October and will fix the battery indicator error. I will post a full list of the fixes once I have them.
Well, how about adding this to the list:
xx. Why is it going to take until early 2010 for MR2? Good Lord!
This phone has officially been added to my "thanks, but no thanks" list.
OWA is supported on the HD. Do you know if users are getting an error when trying to sync to their work email? BTW, thanks everyone for all the great feedback. I'm in the process of pulling all the responses, sorting through what will be fixed in MR1 and what we can target for MR2. I will share all the new issues with Samsung.
Two critical issues:
A few low-level details that should be easily fixed in MR-1:
I found another one.
I've tried about 4 times now to add a Web Bookmark to the Favs page and each time the phone proceeds to freeze for several minutes, then shuts off until I turn it back on again.
Have had this happen twice now in the past week. Try to connect to my network over wifi, won't connect, check the saved settings and a lower case 'e' has added itself to the end of my passphrase.
Thanks Thunder18 - I tested it as well and when adding a bookmark to the Fav tab it does power cycles the phone. In my case the phone turned back on by itself. I tested this on MR1 and it is not resolved. I'll have Opera and Samsung investigate this issue this week.
This is from the pcmag.com review.
"The biggest disappiontment was battery life; the Samsung Instinct HD lasted for just 2 hours and 31 minutes of talk time. Thats the worst result I've ever seen for a cell phone".
Thats really bad. I know that they are fixing the battery indicater, but does that address the power drain issue?
I'll check into the battery life. I've sent your concerns to our guy that test the battery life on our devices to get some feedback from his testing. I agree that is not what we want out of this device. Thank you for the feedback.
Hey Teammate, first thanks for helping resolve the new HD issues people are having, can you answer me a question concerning the origional Samsung Instinct.
The default browser, defaults to minimum on every webpage in html mode ever since the last MR6 and again with MR7 release, even when resizing, it still goes to minimum size on the next page/article. Zoom used to default in the middle of the zoom bar,, but now it zooms to the bottom.
"Out Of Memory" is a bug which hasn't been fixed since it's conception with MR4 when web browsing in html mode ( standard mode ), has never been addressed
This along with other known issues and bugs, which we are still waiting for that maintenence release.
I've contacted Samsung with all of our issues, who have informed me they have no intentions of any updates which brings me back to Sprint, you guys.
Are we finished? Is this the final product? Are there anymore updates coming?
I'm only asking you because your helping in the fix for the HD, so....who's helping us?
Thanks for any information in advance
