Bala, 04 Nov 2014I have bought lumia 730 dual sim on 20th Oct 2014. It has so many problems.
My usage is very ... moreBro which colour shell you had purchased at the tym of buying l730..?
I just wanted to know..
As i had faced the same prblms ..
I had buyed it on 15oct n i was having the orange color...
Nw mine has been gone for repair..
Lets see wht happens..
Just thinking hope color wise it was having any int. Defect...
~MY THOUGHTS WINDOWS PHONE 8.1~
Having using using Microsoft ecosystem since last May on my secondary NL720 device. Although it has some cons. but overall configuration of OS is really sleek and stylish. It will take a while for familiar.
No doubt Microsoft done a superb job to established its mobile OS to give customers another option in very competitive smartphone market where Android is the king.The good which i like is u can control your background running apps, in result of this OS battery last a long, although live tiles are also a unique idea to stay updated but tiles updates info only for some period of the day.
1. SETTINGS: 1st major cons. of this OS is its settings menu which is really confusing it should be determined in a different category wise tabs or groups for easy and user friendly access. But Microsoft throw all controling components of OS and settings here and there. Suppose if you are looking for hard reset option or mobile data option or even you want to copy your contacts from sim to phone then it will definitely make you annoy to find all this in emergency.
2. CONTACTS: If you store two different numbers with same name in your contact list and u want to make call one of them well no you press one name and it will automatically make call without showing number which is obviously irritating. Even if you want to copy your contacts from sim to phone then its really hard to find where the hell this option us exist specialy if u r new user even it took 2 to 3 days for me to find out this which is located in people hub option. Finally whenever u want to store or create any new contact it didn't display the storage location like sim, email or phone.
3. ACTON CENTRE TOGGLES: In action centre there is only 6 toggles u can add it should have more option for new toggles to add specialy heavily used mobile data option which didn't exist in action centre.
Above all cons are only my thoughts and observation and they are the minor issues which will definatly solve in near future updates.
Most of commonly used apps are there in store but majority of those apps are still in beta phase and functionality wise they are 2 years behind specialy social apps (like FB, WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram,Viber etc) then Google and Apple apps library.
THE MOST concerning thing is that windows phone didn't have any Google & Apple apps in its store . Which is really sad and main problem for its downfall.Majority of the customers in globe are using google apps to meet their daily demands specialy google maps for navigation and entertaining youtube app . Although Here maps are good option but this application have some issues in some regions like in my country Pakistan . Microsoft should sort out what matter they have had with Google on urgent basis to brings there apps in WP store. If it happens then it will be a huge bonus for this OS . Even Google and Apple have each other apps in their respective stores including Microsoft apps as well, then why windows phone dont have all this stuff in its store . Microsoft become so lazy to sort out these issues with other vendors otherwise they will lose the battle and majority of their customers will shift to other OS.Even i am also shifted to Andriod although i like windowsphone so much and functionality and smoothness wise i rated it above on andriod and iOS.
These are the genuine issues which i found during my experience and then describe here to share with all of you . Microsoft has to address all these matters on war footing basis to stay alive in competition.
Thanks and Waiting For Your Thought's ..
Now i feel my Lumia 520,is the world,best mobile,no issue nothing,more goodies,i didn't updated it even amber,it's still on original wp8 and i feel so lucky that i didn't do that.
my friend Lumia 730 has so many issues,it's really horrible,he waited so so long for it and now he totally regret.my 520 has now about 2 years old,but still working like a charm,
infact what the interesting fact is Lumia 520 is the cheapest but more trusted device yet in the world and it has about all goodies even any expensive Lumia.thank u
I have bought lumia 730 dual sim on 20th Oct 2014. It has so many problems.
My usage is very less. I never installed/played even a single game in the phone. Mostly I use this phone for Mail checking and call. Even for this very minimal usage, it automatically restarts at many occasions.
Unable to make and End a Call, even the network signal strength is full, if you travel for some distance say two or three kilometers or when you travel from one tower to another signal tower area. By then, the “Mobile + SIM” (where the data connection is can be set) section will be disabled. During this time you can’t make a call or you can’t receive a call. If you make a call you can’t END a call. There is no other way. You must have to restart the phone.
If you go by lift, you can see the problem. The caller will get the “Switched off or out off coverage area message”. Unless you restart the phone you can’t receive a call even for two days. Always you have to have an eye on “Mobile + SIM” menu.
They didn’t perform even a fundamental testing before releasing the phone.
Problem 2: Many times, when you tap to wake up the phone, it will say “RESUMING”. It will keep on resuming even for 15 minutes. It will force you to restart.
Problem 3: While arranging a ICONS in start page, While writing a message/copying to clipboard, while taking a photo intermittently hangs and restarts automatically.
Problem 4: so many times either one of the SIM doesn’t have signal, even at full strength area. If you restart the phone you will get full signal strength.
Don’t Buy this phone. Definitely you will miss many phone calls.

vicky , 04 Nov 2014I am totally shocked by knowing that lumia 730 has some heating issue ...my friend had lumia 7... moreI think that is a problem with his device. I've been speaking for hours and no issue here...And no heating even during gaming.I've played games 2 hours straight and yet there was really not much heat produced(I had a lumia 520 previously and it used to get a little hot). In 730 it is really less and no probs faced even during the charging. You can go ahead and buy it mate.
