A month ago I bought this phone and it is really awesome! My biggest fear was that the camera would be slow to operate but haven't had any problems with that. Battery life is good (not as good as my 720 but will last a day with medium to intensive use). Speed is not an issue either, everything I've tried runs smoothly. If I have to mention the weakest point I'd say the autofocus in standard video mode, but you have full manual control over the focus if needed.
faust207, 01 Aug 2014just a question.. I've been wanting to buy this phone ever since it was announced but until no... moreTo stop the support for it, would be funny, that would mean they have to stop support for wp8. They will not be produced anymore (probably cause of the law sales). But store and all it,s updates will be there...
just a question.. I've been wanting to buy this phone ever since it was announced but until now I haven't bought it yet. I was actually planning on buying this last month but I read about MS saying that Nokia 1020 will already reach its EOL. So I am not sure whether I should still buy this or not.. I really want to, but if I will be just wasting my money w/o updates in just a few months. I don't think its worth it. I've been a Lumia fan.. I was even planning on getting Nokia 930. That is my 2nd option. But I am also not sure if Nokia/MS will also stop support for that after a year.
Guys good news...all who are on 8.1 DP will get 8.1 gdr 1 next week with all new features....but iam gonna down grade to 8 and then to official 8.1 with cyan and then to 8.1 gdr 1 dp.
Navnet yadav, 30 Jul 2014Hi guys i buy the phone this month !i like it so much&!:-q%-)Glad you like it,it sure is awesome
Eamonn, 29 Jul 2014Awful phone - steer well clear. Battery life - rubbish Earpiece volume - so bad you'd probab... moreHa. I already have it and is great if you know how to use it, especialy the camera. But, i don,t expect from amateurs that played a bit with it to know how to take a shot. This is not for amateurs my friend. For that, you pointed well, go for android and iosha. This is for enthusiasts. And the system is just flowless and new. While others copied palm os and especially symbian, this system is trying to be different.
petet, 29 Jul 2014I realy dont understant the battery issue here, I am with 8.1 and battery life is just grate, ... moreIt will probably be better once the official 8.1 can be installed. My battery also lasts for a very reasonable time and no issues whatsoever. Though my Lumia 1320 still rocks.
I realy dont understant the battery issue here, I am with 8.1 and battery life is just grate, 2 days most of the time ...
Awful phone - steer well clear.
Battery life - rubbish
Earpiece volume - so bad you'd probably be as well to ask the person you're speaking with to shout to you instead of calling as you'd probably hear more.
Camera - GREAT definition, but rubbish zoom. Pictures of anything from more than 10 feet - forget it. Flash is too bright as well. Night mode without flash, may as well not bother.
Other points - gets very warm when using - slightly concerning. Unless you have PIN lock on, all sorts of apps & programs can be opened in your pocket. Certain apps tend to crash & need reloading - possi OS compatibility as it's not iphone or android.
Cannot wait for my contract to be up so that I can get rid of this utter piece of turd phone.
DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE
yayies, 27 Jul 2014no am not using it, should I then try that..I agree, I would wait for the official release. It is better to wait and update OTA once available, so no need to register etc etc.
yayies, 27 Jul 2014no am not using it, should I then try that..Official release will be available soon so don't use the developer preview because you'll get official one soon enough
yayies, 27 Jul 2014thanks bro for your advise am really having fun with it..Yeah sure you would,are you using developer preview or no? Windows phone 8.1 official will be released anytime now within 2 weeks
