(Put this in a seperate post to avoid confusion)
Another couple of doozies to report also. Contrary to an earlier post, I also had a problem whereby my backlight would constantly reset itself to turn off every ten seconds. This is really bloody annoying. However, for no apparent reason it seems to have auto-corrected. After about 5 backup installs. I had originally had to switch the backlight auto power off to infinite to stop this happening.
My all-time favourite rears its ugly head again, as well. "Cannot start camera device. Camera is already running". I KNEW THAT! I STARTED IT! I WAS TRYING TO TAKE A PICTURE!!
Swine! Taking Panorama pictures then switching back to normal camera mode seems to trigger this abomination. Also the camera sometimes 'forgets' that it's supposed to be taking 2M shots and drops down to a much smaller size apparently on its own. Also the flash is total crap...
I can't be doing with the camera crashing though, there's no way to kill the process and I have to reset the unit to get it to come back on, which is a total pain in the butt.
Also, YET ANOTHER camera compaint... I use WMP a lot. I use it in the street. Sometimes I like to take pictures in the street. So, I don't necessarily want starting the camera app to totally kill WMP, DO I? What the hell is that all about? It happens EVERY time...
There's FAR too many bugs with this unit. I would happily downgrade if there was another unit even close to this one. Of course, I expect other power users to come back now and say, "hmph, never happens to me..?", but that's par for the course innit?
