Re: The First World Problem Thread

All these problems are trivial even by first world standards. I've been watching Fox news to get a fair and balanced {sic} view of what are the real FWPs. I am convinced that the number one problem facing the first world is in fact the obamacare website.

Also it's a bit cold in America and if you want to boil a kettle it'll suddenly turn into snow, which could be a problem also if you prefer weak wee coffee to snow. On the other hand apparently climate change is a RoW (rest of world) problem

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I've had my new phone since November and I still can't work out how to answer calls. There's a big green telephone button on the screen but when I press it, nothing happens. Why oh why oh why.

Try sliding the button whilst shaking the phone violently.

Try sliding the button whilst skaing the phone violently.
While whatting the phone? Shaking? Ok .. I'll try ...

But what is the point of the big green and big red phone appearing on the screen if you have to have some initiation into the telephonic masonic lodge before you can operate them?

(Luckily I didn't buy the phone so that people could ring me on it so the fact that I can't answer it is not as irritating as it may at first seem ... )

In my opinion you have so many open apps that the smartphone is struggling to perform its its primary (non-smart) duty and thus why its acting so laggy when you get a call. Try updating the firmware as a first step and then keep an eye on the task manager and amount Apps/RAM in use.

Alternatively get an iPhone
