AnonD-327100, 03 Nov 2014Hi..
I have a lumia 720 (using it since close to 1 yr and 4 months). I have (and many other... morejust reset your phone and all your problem will be solve. My friend has Lumia 520, he can't connect to any wi fi, but after i was reseted it, it looks new phone again.
~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 ..
Seriously at the time of launch in many forums i have seriously criticised the Nokia lumia 830 being a underpower device with a snapdragon 400 or whether front camera or hd screen..But as i am indian and at this point of time there is very very limited availability of nokia lumia 930 here in New Delhi..
so after long waiting of Nokia Lumia 930 got fully tired and even after the launch unavailability or limited supply of Nokia Lumia 930 made me to purchase Nokia Lumia 830(orange) On this Diwali at 26500 inr on offline shops as on online i have to pay much more for nokia lumia 830( orange) compare to white and black variant.Coming to device..
In looks it just beat competitor flagship devices..as i have invested my hard earned money more on looks and solid feel looks much premium.
As i have never owned a full hd display device so Nokia Lumia 830 screen is much better for me but i feel and as seen in some videos Nokia lumia 930 screen looks better but only in video.
Processor + Ram
As during the launch my main focus to criticize the Nokia Lumia 830 was processor and ram but after owning i just feel opposite ..truly love the speed no lag as during asphalt 8 i have not seen any lag.But overall i feel that if this phone was having Snap 800 it would have seriously become a futuristic phone but with snap 400 i can't say.
front camera in Night is just like a cheap camera nothing good deserve a hate.. but in day light it is way way better than 2 or 3 mp camera ..one day i was sitting in the park and was checking rear camera and by mistake i clicked on front camera and it looks so sharp and clear that i was not believing that it is just 0.9 mp camera.coming to rear camera its a lumia camera and pureview fantastic camera nothing to say bad about..It is just awesome.
Here is the pics clicked from Nokia Lumia 830
Yes you will find ample amount of apps of your needs but i am waiting for the day when windows phones will be getting exclusiveness release of biggest games and apps just like now Apple gets and then android.
Battery life is good..But seriously i have not fully tested the battery am not a heavy user..but average use can make up to 24hrs+ easily..
If you love Nokia buy it ..If you love Windows Phones buy it.. you can't find the overall better experience in any any Nokia or windows phones.I love Nokia thats why i bought this device as my last loyalty i am not a windows phones lover..My Last Nokia Phone and may be first and Last Windows phone.
I have a lumia 720 (using it since close to 1 yr and 4 months). I have (and many others) have an issue with my WIFI connectivity. It doesn't connect to most of the Wifi connections. Very rarely I can connect to WiFi. This issue started after using the phone for about 4 weeks. Check below threads too.
Is there any similar issues with this phone?
Frankly I love the phone except for this issue (UI is beautiful and unique, display is beautiful, battery back up is decent, good navigation support, no hassles with mobile network etc etc). But WiFi such a basic feature that this can be categorized as a critical issue. But there is no resolution available. I personally feel this is an issue in OS. Hence I prefer and and suggest others not to buy ANY Windows phone.

Actually i want to purchase a new phone and wants also to switch from android... morewindows phone is far better than android.people have created a myth that window phones are difficult to operate but that is absolutely false.go for windows phone and see the difference.

Actually i want to purchase a new phone and wants also to switch from android... moreBro....if u want to switch to Windows phone there are certain things you need to consider...
1. User interface will be totally different. Not familiar for Android users.
2. Apps will sometimes make you confused. Though now Windows store has good no of apps..still you will find sometimes lost.
3. But the smoothness and fluid windows phone will give you lot of satisfaction that is for sure. So if you want to try one better buy a cheaper one ..use it ..get it know..then after few days if you are satisfied go for flagships. Thanks
AnonD-54865, 02 Nov 2014Hello all..!! Actually i want to purchase a new phone and wants also to switch from android... moreSee brother if you go for android it is like everyone is using the same ...but if you go for windows first thing it is faster than other OS and it is like proffessional .and you wont get bored .this is my experience.

Actually i want to purchase a new phone and wants also to switch from android... moreFor me 40% go for windows & 60% android.
1. Consideration of FRIENDLY USER (this is very importance).
2. Make sure the APP you need is there.
3. Hardware quality.
Actually i want to purchase a new phone and wants also to switch from android to windows for different platform and diff feeling but whenever i ask to someone they rapidly sayin that dont go for windows go for android..
I really cant understand that what happen to people's only prefer android and make discourage the people who wants to buy windows phone..
Plz temme me WINDOWS users what should i do??
Go with it or not..!
People's makes me confuse ttly..!!
Thank you for reading and deeply appreciated if one will replying..!!
I dont thnk many people will go for this phone becoz it has huge priced. it has low screen resolution. Normal ips display, poor front cam & battery compared 2 l730. It has only advantage of good camera, big display & internal memory. So if the price range in between 20k-22k, many people will buy it. Microsoft should think abt this very seriously. Otherwise it will be Flop Flagship!!
A question to users from an Android user,has this latest windows phone now got a proper file system,also a proper gallery where you can move pics/vids etc into folders etc for easy finding and using,also can you go into your music gallery and use a song for a ring tone? Thanks in advance for any help.
