I got mine just yesterday and the gps doesn't seem to work well either. I updated to the latest available to me on simfree and it's

6.0.B.3.184 ECO Jul 30, 2012

OK actually I think it does get better as you use it - it must store some temporary data. It first didn't work well, then took 43 seconds, now 18 seconds. That's OK with me!

Default GPS problem

My Xperia U seems to have the same issue...

The devices that came with the NovaThor U8500 chipset are experiencing this GPS problem. It is a hardware problem.

When I use the A-GPS function (using 3g data during the satellite search to calculate the distance of the device until the antennas making a triangulation) i can get signal much faster.

Unfortunately the GPS receiver of these devices is disappointing.

You're right. I can't help but noticed that most android devices that i've seen don't have satisfactory GPS experience. When i compare them to other phones this is the only area that lacks the most. Let's just hope for better in the future

Currently busy because of college works and stuff, so I afk, sorry folks.
