I was using the Nokia Lumia 920 for over a week and what I didn't like about the WP8 are...
The native Windows Phone 8 messages, which
connects to Facebook messaging and Windows
Messenger) does NOT support group messaging
on Facebook. However, you can work around
this by using the official Facebook App though
that is really clunky. The Facebook App looks like a 1.0 effort
compared to iPhone and Android versions – it is
really bad and this is a big disappointment.
People point out that there are alternate versions
available in the store – though I’ve just been
using touch.facebook.com. I am a Google Apps user and using a Windows
Phone device means I’ll forever be fighting the
push me/pull me standards battle that seems to
rage from these device/OS companies wanting
you to move “all in” to their standards (email,
calendar, contact). So far my Gmail has been running just fine though an Android smartphone
clearly has the nod in tighter integrations for
those married to Google's world of Apps and
No Foursquare?! Big omission. You can, however
check-in online to LinkedIN, Facebook, and Twitter. But…there’s no native Twitter
No Instagram app available for Windows Phone
8, a very popular picture sharing application.
There’s no integrated Skype application. It is
available in testing, but reportedly buggy and coming soon -- so say's Microsoft -- for Windows
Phone 8 despite the application being shown on
several press shots for Windows Phone 8.
The advertised Windows Phone 8 Rooms feature
is supposed to allow you to create private group
messaging, picture and calendar sharing with people you chose. Except that it's virtually
unusable to integrate with iOS and Android
Trying to use Rooms with iOS or Android users
sends a text link (via SMS) which dead ends on
their phone with no instructions how to join a private room. Clearly this is unfinished and all the
review sites mentioning this feature have not
tested it (which is a reason I've started to avoid
most blog reviews).
Cabling to Windows 8 and attempting to sync
music is a disaster. The interface is awful, confusing and apparently half done. You won’t
have a problem cabling to your Windows 8
device but good luck figuring out how to
download playlists and collections of music. I’m
still experimenting but my initial impressions of
cabling the device were very negative. This interface makes iTunes look like a masterpiece.
Live Tiles – Prone to stopping unexpectedly and if
there’s a way to restart them – it’s lost on me.
This is one of the top inexcusable problems with
Windows Phone 8 since Microsoft trots this
feature out as a key differentiating reason to buy WP8 vs competitors. Huge, huge fail.
So, swtiched back to my android device.
Ahead of Mobile World Congress 2013, two new Nokia Windows Phone devices, the Lumia 520 and 720, appear to have been leaked by the evleaks twitter account. Rumors of the two devices have floated around all month, including recently surfaced specs.
The Lumia 720 will reportedly pack a 4.3-inch screen with a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB memory, dual cameras and microSD card slot. The 520 is rumored to ship with a 4-inch screen, 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of built-in storage, microSD card slot and a 5-megapixel rear camera, but will not have a front-facing camera.
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2013Which phone should i buy lumia 620 or galaxy s dousYou should ask this question to your wife. lol (Sorry can't resist myself to comment that)
Well it is obvious that we will tell you that Go With L620 because you are in Lumia 620 comment section, if you go in Galaxy S duos comment section they will tell you should go with Galaxy S duos.
So, better to decide yourself my friend and don't ask foolish question like that. You can ask Advantage and disadvantage (or any issue they are facing) of both phone in both comment section and then decide yourself.

AnonD-108010, 22 Feb 2013Web browsing time only 3.50 hour ???Sorry to say, but Nokia producing worse battery lumia smartphone this days.
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2013Battery life is as poor as expected.Yes im agre with you
I have owned the lumia 620 for about 2 weeks now and it's great.
fast, the UI is smooth, it has only partially stuck once. It does what a phone does, browser is fine, apps are fine.
Feels solid and high quality, screen is fine for me.
Missing some crucial apps like dropbox for now.
Camera should be 8mp, don't think it would increase the price much. If they did it, this phone would take over any other phone. Not enough detail in pictures at the moment.
Need a better camera app with burst picture taking, slow motion etc similar to HTC sense offering on android.
Lastly wp8 needs to simple way of closing apps without hitting back button multiple times.
Create a higher capacitor battery for this phone.
This phone was great, great build quality. That's excellent phone at that price. Hmm, I guess 720 and 520 are like 710 and 510 in the past and Nokia know how to maintain 3 phone in 3 price level. Don't be afraid of purchase 620 at this time. All problems i have are come from apps, a little dissapointed with skype - not allow to sign out, Viber doesn't have call function and still waiting for lockscreen shortcut to replace physic button. However WP8 is new and i think all that uncomfortable things will be fix soon :)
I love very much and I am sure,will buy it.Much interesting and very attractive.I like full black lumia 620 .
