Mango keyboards vanish while iPhone yellows like a bad apple

18 October 2011

windows-phone-mangoDo you have Mango? No, this isn't some kind of thesp's patois, but rather, a perfectly reasonable question about whether or not you're using a Microsoft Windows Phone.

If you are, you may have upgraded to the 7.5 version and unable to respond to our lame articles because the keyboard keeps randomly vanishing.

It appears that this glitch isn't specific to any one make or model, rather, affecting a cross section of Mango-powered phones.

A rep from Windows Phone Support said that Microsoft is aware of the issue and that "customer support is working with the individuals reporting changes to their experience. We are investigating these reports to determine the root cause of any issues users are having."

It's not just Microsoft. Apple have been having problems too, with 4S users complaining of yellow screens, prompting people who can't think of proper jokes to titter: 'this wouldn't have happened when Steve Jobs was alive.'

Apple have sold four million iPhone 4S devices in just three days, but alas, handsets are having problems with their screens.

One user whined : "My 4S screen is less contrasty, and the whites are more yellow (beyond 'warm') compared to my iPhone 4 screen. The colors are less vibrant, and some are pretty washed out." Another wrote: , "Yes. Compared with my old iPhone 4, the 4S screen is washed out with a yellow tint. I'm not happy."

In fairness, it's a pretty small problem to have and definitely no Antennagate which made every man and his dog start mouthing off in some way.

    I've upgraded to Mango and not noticed any real problems with the keyboard - it sometimes takes a fraction of a second to show up on screen, anything I've typed but that's it. I'll keep an eye out now - thanks BW

    What are the iPhone users complaining about? Piss is warm, hence its yellow.

    Mango-powered phones??? There's your problem right there. Mangos are rubbish as a power source, no wonder the screen's gone all wobbly, try dragon fruit, it works much better, tastes of nothing though.

    "the 4S screen is washed out with a yellow tint. I’m not happy" - well worth queuing up for a day to get it then? First adopters experience problems. Well I never.

What do you think?
