Nokia 8110 4G Requests - Part 1

Gathering a list of issues and changes I would like to see fixed on my 4G phone.

Most of these issues can be fixed with a hypothetical software update. So it's up to HMD Global (@NokiaMobile) to work on the apps and system software on the phone and release a new update - preferably sooner than later.

And the WhatsApp integration should be implemented by Facebook Team WhatsApp of course.

List of software nuisances:

  • WhatsApp is running on the phone, but is lacking in these ways:
    • No support, even-though the phone has a QR-reading-cabable camera on board
    • Received videos have a maximum file size of 8MB, so anything bigger than that cannot be opened, at all. Memory limitations?
    • No calling
    • No video chat
  • No emoji input - This makes me really sad. 😅
  • No CalDAV and CardDav sync support - would have been great to be able to easily synchronize contacts outside of Google or Apple sync.
  • The volume controls are practically useless as the phone has three volume settings even-though it has a scale from vibrate to 15, the actual volume stages are "Really Loud", "Loud" or "vibrate".
  • The phone gets really hot during calls - not sure if software or hardware related to be honest.

It would be awesome if this list could be marked off soon.
