Regarding the basic standards, some bugs are indeed poor but there is often no request from Nokia for more detailed information until some months later by which time the bug is "cold" and the original reporter doesn't always respond. What would help is for Nokia to respond more quickly to new bugs, thus improving the chance of obtaining the missing bug information.

A template may help, but you're always going to get poor bug reports in which case early dialogue with the bug reporter should elicit more information, not to mention educate.
