Using volume/zoom hardware buttons: Volume changed slowly, must wait 8 seconds

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
1. Using volume hardware control
Volume is controlled smoothly, and in locked mode (on the screen where one can
use slider to unlock) it is possible to change volume by pressing the volume
The volume takes about 8 seconds to go from zero volume to full volume. By
pressing the button quickly (in either direction), the volume changes even
slower. I think in 41-10, the movement was much smoother and faster, nicer to
In the unlock screen, it volume buttons can't be used at all. This is very
unpleasant when controling volume without taking mobile off pocket. This worked
in previous version(s).
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
if this is intended behaviour, a switch (using gconf or something similar)
would be very appreciated to override this behavior...

Hi, please don't mix up two issues in one bug report. Unlock screen is covered
by bug 8011 already, hence convering the other issue only:

How was it in 42-11? I must admit that I don't really remember it...
AFAIRemember, the volume control was smoother and faster... like, when I press
volume button twice, the volume often doesn't change (well, at least the
indicator doesn't move)...
And if it was the same in 41/42 releases (I doubt that - it didn't bother me
back then, so...), it still deserves some programmer's love, I'd say...
now that I spent some time with "new" volume control, it seems like it's
behaving correctly - the volume is changed continuously, only
a) the volume indicator seems to use some "rounding", so the visual appearance
is confusing (it looks like the volume changing speed was changed randomly,
when a volume key is pressed - when in reality, volume changes continuously,
but indicator "moves" with different speeds)
b) the continuous speed is too slow.. I'd suggest some speed increase, when
volume button is held pressed for more than, say, 0.2 s ...

Nokia currently has no plans to change the "speed" of the volume change.
This has been improved in PR 1.2: Now it takes less than 4 Seconds from zero to
max. Hence this can should be closed as fixed. Please feel free to change the
state if you disagree. :)
Agreed, the pain is gone now. Also vote on fixed.
