The Nokia N95 8GB has received a firmware update. This one isn't as drastic and groundbreaking as the one we got last year...Infact, I don't even feel that its worth your time to update.
According to Teo from Symbian Freak, the main things to note in this update are ASR (Auto Screen Rotation) and Combo Memory.
Auto rotation is pretty self explanatory. Your screen will change orientation depending on the way in which your phone is positioned. We've been able to do this on the N95 for a long time now, thanks to Samir's RotateMe. To activate atomatic screen rotation go to Tools>Settings>General>Display and then set Rotate Screen to automatic.
If you were to ask me how I feel about this feature I would tell you that I'm dissapointed. It's too unresponsive and slow. You can't even adjust the sensitivity or select which applications or menus can be rotated - something that an application from a single freeware developer can do.
I don't know what Combo Memory is but according to Teo it won't benefit the consumer in any way.
So, what are the BAD things about this update?
1) Auto Rotation is crap and I feel Nokia were lazy with their implementation of it.
2) Still no user data preservation.
OK, what's GOOD about this update?
1) The platform hack still works!
I don't recommend the update, they only added one crap feature that can already be done using 3rd party software! Don't waste your time having to reinstall all of your apps again.
