Symbian for nokia 808 uninstall takes too long
Reason is because some apps will go through process like preparing install, process install, finalising install which take away your control for that few seconds or a minute instead runnning in background mode. Its not convenient to uninstall more apps.
as Symbian is now in maintenance mode, it is very unlikely that we will see any more firmware updates for devices such as the 808.
