Users Report Problems With Windows Phone 8.1 On Samsung ATIV SE

released (and still horribly named) ATIV SE smartphone that a number of Verizon users have acquired. It appears that the device does not play nicely with Windows Phone 8.1. At all. The newest flavor of Microsoft’s mobile operating platform was released in developer preview form a couple of weeks back, and word is that more than a million users have already downloaded and installed it. An impressive feat, by all accounts. So anyway, as this report reports (ha!), many users that deployed this release are plagued by a number of really severe issues following the update — including freezes, reboots and general unresponsiveness. Which, frankly, is a shame, as this is a fairly powerful device. Some users have even reported unresponsive touchscreens, while others have issues with the camera. Worse yet, the handset freezes during phone calls, requiring a reboot to become responsive again. Oh, and there have been cases where the smartphone automatically restarted. All by itself. All these issues, from a large company, and a new handset. Now, admittedly, you can say that this is what developer previews are for, to iron out bugs before general release. But really, Samsung really has to get its act together here. And well, given these severe issues, if you are a Samsung ATIV SE owner, it is best you hold off from installing this version of Windows Phone 8.1 and wait for a couple of months. The final version of the mobile operating system, will in all probability, fix these problems.]]>
