I got this phone the other week and overall Im impressed with it but Ive a few issues, I dunno if its me going mad or if the phone is dodgy.
I got it from Vodafone Ireland, but got an unlock code and have a 3 Ireland sim card in it. Its not rooted or anything like that.
Firstly is the battery, its woeful, after 2.5 hours on 3G, its gone, Ive the screen set to automatic brightness, and the only apps ive installed that would run in the background are Viber and Dropbox. Im usually very careful about what apps I put on phones and try and keep it to a minimun.
The other thing is, its got a habit of restarting when its in my pocket, never when im actually using it. The only way I actually notice is when I take it out and its asking for my SIM Pin. I was thinking maybe I was hitting the on/off switch without knowing but I even got a cover off ebay which means Ive to apply more pressure to the buttons on the side but that made no difference either:(
Another thing is that I was lying in bed using it this morning and a message came up saying the temperature was below its operating range, which is mad because it was about 15C (thats t-shirt weather here in Dublin!)
The final thing is, I did a factory reset on it through the settings menu and now when I turn it on, it says something about 0086103 and a load of numbers after that being a "null language pack" or something to the like.
My firmware version is G510-0100V100R001C02B171
Does anyone know if this is a dodgy batch?
Would flashing a newer firmware sort all of these problems or should I bring it back to the shop and get a replacement?
Thanks a mill,
