SuperNexus, 14 Jul 2013@wp8 lvr : I was expecting some new good features but... Lets see but waiting is quite annoyi... moreI will show you the endless rants and complaints about Data Sense and FM radio
Agreed, 620 will not get it, but a lot of users were angry about it. Data sense helps you track your usage. All phones that are not carrier unlocked will get this feature, regardless of operator. This is particularly useful if you are a heavy data user.
What basic features are missing? I see three - lock rotation, sms tones and notification center. Maybe separate ringer volumes.
jun, 14 Jul 2013Through YouTube mobile web & YouTube app using a 3G network..Ok, then it must be the connectivity issue. I am tried with WiFi, 3G n 2G. But I only faced a buffering problem. Everything else was fine.
@wp8 lvr : I was expecting some new good features but... Lets see but waiting is quite annoying.
@neeraj.rathore : I don't know about most asked features.
Can you tell me how data sense is useful?
Because I don't see how Data Sense is useful. Mobile Operator always show how much data left and we can manage our data by on/off Data Connection and there is no guarantee that we will get this feature.
and FM, well its useless to all L620 users.
So, that's why I am saying its nothing more than useless features. Try to understand that. Its same as if basic needs(food, shelter, clothing etc) aren't fulfill then even if you get a luxury car, you'll not be happy.
WP8 still missing some basic smartphone features.
SuperNexus, 13 Jul 2013Yeah! I already have an idea about this. Microsoft is very slow and normally they don't listen... moreData Sense and FM Radio are two of the most asked features currently. There are so many apps which can download, and file based system is obsolete as well as insecure. Background download has been supported since day one, developers need to implement it.
SuperNexus, 13 Jul 2013Yeah! I already have an idea about this. Microsoft is very slow and normally they don't listen... moreYahh.. m trying to say ths dude.. m also dissapointed coz gdr2 is also useless.. wp8 still lacks some basic features..
i thnk dual core is nt sufficient to handle real multitasking.. 1 core is here to handle os n other is handle apps..
in sdk i thnk all options are availble for app developers like baground downlding, run in lockscreen, run in background.. move downloaded content to respective hub(except videos).. only problem is knwladge of c#(.net) programing..
1 app developer adds baground dwnlding, otheradd under lockscree, uc developer add to move content to respective hub, screen rotation lock other gives other option..
bt no any added all these facilities in 1 app..
we need all these features in 1 app...
ms gives all these function apportnities to developers n they cant add these features to inbuilt IE brwser..
bt no 1 got these coding at 1 place..
also wp8 sdk hav some limitations..
Hope u understand my point.. ms saves all improvments like screen lock, notification centre n lot lot more thngs for its wp8.1 update.. they nt give it us early ths year.. we got all ths in next year

Instead of Data Sense,FM etc it will be lot better if they introduce Auto Screen Rotate On/OFF, Download Manager or Background Downloading etc.
WP still need lots of improvements and that improvements are nothing but basic smartphone features.
Well normally I do not complain but GDR 2 is nothing more than useless feature(at least for me).
I am quite disappointed.

AnonD-100814, 13 Jul 2013Guys just read ths page http://www.trustedreviews.com/news/major-windows-phone-8-fixes-won-... moreActually its a old news, many knew this all along only now MS has made a full official statement. Also WP8 support has been increased from 18 to 36 months. Full 3 yrs of support. Though I would have personally liked the blue update by the end of the year, but they are bringing the necessary changes like quad core support and FullHD screen support till 2013 end for OEMs to roll out these kind of devices is enough.
