Phone Freezing While Browing with Default Browser After Belle Refresh Update?

I guess most of the Symbian Belle users out has received Belle Refresh update and rest of them are about to receive it. As @ctrohin said in previous post, indeed, Belle Refresh is not a great update. We got few more widgets (and most of them were already available separately), an updated browser and a new UI in music player. Not much, huh?

I think that after almost 8 months of development they simply could have done more. Let’s see what’s new. Nokia added a bunch of new …
