wp_lover, 16 Aug 2016Downloading it.. In India on my Lumia 730. I have no hopes left with Microsoft's mobile OS. J... moreHii am from India and I have still use Lumia 1520....cam any one update this anevarsary update....kindly post review about battery and camera performance pls...
Edge is far worse than before the update, crashes constantly and already made my 640 restart!
I updated my 640 and Edge is still unusable, the worst browser ever, even though swipe back and forward is back! The keyboard is better than before but still years behind/worse than most keyboards, SwiftKey..., on Android!
Rolling out to my Lumia 535. Then I'll turn off the phone again. LOL.
Anonymous, 17 Aug 2016yes nokia will be back. but it will not be the same nokia. it will be china phones with nokia... moreWhen u don't know something in detail then just don't say it. Nokia will be the same which u saw earlier as HMD global has all the ex-Nokians as their Top level management. Starting from the design to the quality assurance , all will be based on Nokia standards...
I recently downgraded from a Lumia 640 XL to a Lumia 650. I do not understand what Microsoft was thinking. Teh phone is slim, very nice build, light and with more storage space. But that is all about it. Really Microsoft?, what a shallow battery and a small screen estate, Microsoft in the future do not release any mid ranger with a than a 5.5 screen and 3,000 Ma battery, much as i love Windows 10, you really should bring a Lumia 650 XL. No wonder the Lumia 650 are not being purchased for replacements of Lumia 640 XL. Even the price of Lumia 640 XL is higher than 650.
Just got the update :D After reading it here, just checked my phone and it was there !
Installed it quite easily, was stuck at 5% for some time, got me worried, however, it was nice later :)
Been using WP8 from its earlier days, and happy to see the way its growing. Used it right from LUmia 625-1320-1520 and now hoping to upgrade to 950xl. I wish the camera was good on HP elite x3
For all enthusiasts:
If you use Health&Futness app, then in windows 10 Microsoft killed it.
Like before: good things are removed and push the stupidity infront.
Bad and slow OS, maybe now I can call it beta, with integration that noone cares, but without apps. And i do not mean games. I mean apps: banking, traveling, lifestyle... NOTHING!
The Anniversary update broke the sounds on my Lumia 950 XL.
All of the system sounds, video and audio sounds are muffled, wooden and lack clarity.
Tried to improve them through equalizer with no help.
Also already did a soft reset to the phone and it's hard reset time I think. :(
AnonD-507785, 16 Aug 2016"...Update is finally rolling out"...and nobody really cares. The idea was there, make univers... moreyes nokia will be back. but it will not be the same nokia.
it will be china phones with nokia brand.
Microsoft should do something about apps. Without apps its just a feature phone, a very good feature phone. Look at ios, its basically an app drawer. But apps make it so much awesome. Leave the interface and improve the apps. Because 90% of time people are in apps. No one is going to care about those tiles and animation after some time. But its just me, I pick up my phone to use apps. I dont even care about the wallpaper. I dont have time for that. 95 % of time I m in my apps and rest 5% in my multitasking tray.
Have a locked Microsoft Lumia 532. Registered to Inseder, received the update yesterday.
Enjoying the new features :)
Windows 10 is good, but since P-Go came out, people with low end phones tend to change phones with Android or iOS..
My Lumia 930 did perform an update yesterday but I highly doubt that was the update we're talking about now. I will check for updates in a couple of days again.
Actually the OS parts are really nice,
- Cortana is better than google now and siri (although now siri is open this might improve).
- Keyboard is the best (of course this is personal preference but it is reviewed well), although you can now get this on iOS.
- Very responsive UI like iOS, but on a device that costs the fraction of an iPhone.
- The tiles are a bit crappy, but I love the interaction animations. Android and iOS have generally caught up on this, but MS had better contextual UI animations first.
BUT the apps are not up to the same level as Android and iOS. e.g. Whatsapp would automatically re-size a video to send, Windows phone only lets you cut down the length...this type of behaviour i.e. apps being not quite as good is a general rule. If the apps were cleaned up I would genuinely be happy to recommend windows phone as the best option. Sadly this looks like it will never happen.
If this is sucess, I dread to think what failure looks like! WP is at 1% global market share and falling. Year on year they were down around 50% on this time last year. We have been hearing about various MS phone software versions is going to change everything for at least the last 5 to 10 years. The reality is that nothing changes apart from the rate of increasing decline.
