    Hello everyone!

    I have the X8 for about a week, and since the beginning I'm having a problem with the digital compass...

    When I enter the application that comes preinstalled ("Compass"), the compass is not moving and eventually crashes my X8 and I need to remove and insert the battery (the phone becomes unresponsive). But now, after a clean restart, the compass is working normally (and pointing the correct North direction) until this situation happens again.

    This happens a lot of times... And as you can imagine is kind of annoying!
    And I can confirm this is not a "Compass (application)" problem, because I've tried the Service Menu compass test and nothings shows and again, crashes the phone.

    Anyone experiencing this problem? Thanks!

    Regards,

    Jo

    That also happens to me. But I guess it's normal.... I never tried outdoors, but I guess that's a normal behavior indoors (quite a few magnetic fields - laptop, TV, etc.).
