Can u pls mention the name of apps which cause it to crash? @apprentice u haven't experienced this,isn't it?
VarunManoharan, 14 Mar 2013I personally feel Android is good only because of its app count and that you can customize it ... moreAgreed that Android is 6 years old but when it released there was no other OS which was that much advanced. When Android 2.1 Eclair released in 2009 it was far better than any available Smartphone OS and brought so many innovative features.
Now technology is getting advanced day by day and Microsoft is world leader in OS and applications and its Microsoft's latest mobile OS.
so if we expect it to be better then Android then are we wrong??? and if not better shouldn't it at-least be equivalent to Android??
VarunManoharan, 14 Mar 2013I personally feel Android is good only because of its app count and that you can customize it ... moreAndroid has Google apps integration like Gtalk(Voice +Video calling), Google Drive, Google + and most importantly YouTube.
Most of us use Google services more then others but with any other platform no dedicated official applications are available for Google services.
I've been using L620 for last 6 days and I m still not able to find a good app. for Gtalk as its the most used app for me on a smart phone. I tried almost all available chat tools on Windows store but none on them worked properly.
As long as stability is concerned my phone already crashed 5 - 6 times and I had to remove battery in order to restart it.
SECURITY I don't think matters that much for a general user maybe its important in corporate environment.
I would not say that I'm missing Android but as I m loving the interface of WP 8 but still no one can say that its better than Android.

P.S. - Sorry, Just now found your response for it. Glad that the phone works well with it. Mine won't be wasted. Waiting for the NL 720 :-)

My 'other' storage is also more than 1GB...
TheApprentice, 14 Mar 2013Agreed.

But how many of us would do that? Most of the users hardly don't even use third party themes, customization is alien for them. Even for those who do that, they do that only to improve the performance of their devices, which is not a problem in iPhones or Windows phones. People hardly use more than 10 Apps/day on an average. They have better things to do. :-p
Also, Windows Phone is rapidly evolving. So sooner or later it might reach a point where no one would require to customize their smartphones. As far as app count is considered, I had mentioned earlier in another thread too, app count of 100,000 was reached by Apple in 16 months, Android in 24 months and windows phone took 19 months to do that, which is not bad at all.
For people who complain that iPhones and Windows phones cannot be customized, they are devices for heaven's sake. You have your Car, and you can modify it to an extend. We can't have propellers in our cars, can we? You have Television sets and Air-conditioners and other devices at home which are designed to do set of activities and anything beyond that is out of scope and unnecessary. If they don't like it, better not take the android mobiles they feel is better and SECURE (HA HA). I personally got tired of the lag and crashes that I experienced with Android phones. If I have to squeeze out every penny I have to get a high end, Lag-free android phone, No Thanks. :-)
P.S. - For those who compare Android phones with Windows phones- Your OS is almost 6 years old and Windows phone OS is hardly and year Old. Though it is not sensible to compare both, Windows phones still out-performs Android phones in most cases. Of Course I can't compare SG Note-2 with a NL 620. Note-2 clearly wins. But NL 620 performs as good as SG S3, sometimes even better. Correct me guys if I am wrong . .
VarunManoharan, 14 Mar 2013Ha ha ha, Nokia Lumia 620 is not Android, Yes. Thanks to Nokia for being sensible :-P :-)Agreed. But I think Nokia will also want to consider giving Android a shot in the future, cause there are many fans who want to see a Nokia Android device, preferably a nexus and Nokia would also want to have a share of big Android pie. But first they would like to bring themselves in good position so that they can take on Samsung on other Android players.
ovel, 14 Mar 2013thanks mate..but what about storage check? It was included in that "Settings" update, which was around 7mb.

I am currently getting 5-6 hrs on single charge.
lumialover, 14 Mar 2013The phone's performance has no issues except a single problem . Whatsapp shows notifications... moreYes. At least on my part. Now my WhatsApp has no problem in connecting and receiving notifications. It works flawlessly now on both wifi and cellular data, even if I now close the app using the back button.
For friends who are looking for S advance
No doubt it is really good phone with its specs and proven android platform. I was researching a lot between both these phones, but finally I felt the following
Android is boring now and the s advance look is also on the old style. Also phone size is big apart from that 0.2" screen size difference this is where L 620 looks bit small.
After reading the s advance user reviews here on gsmarena made me to think about it again as I am not the person always looking for update and using more applications and I get irritated if phone hangs with some bugs, so decided not to have extra headache with that though I like s advance and decided to go with this refreshing small wonder L 620 as we never feel that we are using a dated device(s advance) and feel fresh with L 620
Bought this phone..... Impressive performance... The only drawback is, it comes with windows.... I switched from android to windows and now understands that i made a big mistake.... Gamers never go for windows...
TheApprentice, 14 Mar 2013Woohoo. Finally you got one. Congratulations and welcome to the Lumia Family. :) :) :). Color... moreThe phone's performance has no issues except a single problem .
Whatsapp shows notifications on top and even on the live tiles (when on 2g). but when i open the app it shows nothing. Will this prob be solved by not exiting it and just minimising the app ???
