I want to know that with the Lumia 920 is it possible to lock specific menus apart from the screen. For example with galaxy s2 or s3 you can use the ZD box to lock specific menus such as emails, photos, messages etc without locking the screen

vivekpandit, 09 Feb 2013I hv taken lumia 920 7 days back, but today its not geting on, what should I do.Hello,
hold volume key down and power button for 10sec.the irony thing is even mine got switched off for 7th day.
holding volume key down and power button for 10sec also restarts the phone
several people say:" Let it die then full charge "
this is a wrong action !
Please don't! Modern lithium batteries don't not like to be fully discharged and it can actually cause premature wear. Top your battery off as often as you can
it is not true!
with lithium you do not have to drain it at all. That is a ridiculous legend!
just follow what FarhadTarapore advertised !
AnonD-18125, 09 Feb 2013the Main demirit of 920: the battery backup is the shitty-est in the history of smartphone ind... moreAgreed bro I was using nokia for a long time and after I brought a android tab I realized what we can do with smart phones so I shifted from nokia to apple. Ya I agree apple have alot of limitations but still t wors well . I can use same calendar in my apple phone n android tab google n apple doing a good job I honestly think nokia should be more concer about their market now they r loosing t day by day :(
plz tell me about downloading of media files in this phone as ie 10 does nt support downloading, is there any alternative?
People with battery issues obviously haven't been reading past comments. You need to complete a few battery drains. Then full charges. You will get a full day of heavy use. . Most people with smart phones recharge every night anyway. Get over it and sort it out.
Phone reviews are always subjective, so what I am writing here would be against other's opinion.
Firstly I want to talk about the phone physical build. Lumia 920 is one of the best built phone from Nokia. No other company than Nokia can come up with such solid built phones. I have been using variety of Nokia phones till now, and what I really feel good about Nokia phone are it's solid feel and Lumia 920 feel really good at hand. It is so ergonomically designed that you wont hurt your hand.
The operating system i.e. Windows Phone 8 is one of the coolest and robust OS release by Microsoft. Windows Phone has enough softwares to meet my needs, I really get amazed by people talk about less apps comparing to Anroid or iOS, I feel that with the current pace at which Apps are growing they will surely reach the top pretty soon. To be frank for any app which is not present I always have the IE10 to browse to.
The camera - No words to describe it is the best camera till now, the Pure View camera technology with OIS, it is best thing to have in a modern smart phone. I would say give 10/10 for that.
The phone's display is also one of the highlight - The pure motion HD+ gives the most pleasing reading experience on phone. The phone glass panel which takes less finger prints and oil gives a superb feeling while scrolling, gaming etc.
Music + Video - I watch mainly Youtube videos and this gives me a wonderful experience on that. And for videos which are there on my PC, most of the video formats can be played by the phone.
the battery is by far the longest I've experienced BUT there is a catch.
It lasts me for 2 FULL DAYS under following conditions
1) switch off location services when not in use
2) switch off bluetooth when not in use
3) switch off NFC (always off)
4) use 2G data instead of 3G.
with 3G, the battery fails to make it even through a full day. But with 2G, it makes it for 2 days with the regular GMAIL and Exchange mail push @ 1 hour sync.
Regular usage involves: facebook, web browsing, photo and video for about an hour each per day.
I agree, it freezes for no reason and the biggest problem is you just have to live with it. Since the Battery is non-removable, the way to switch it off /reboot is to hold the power key pressed for 10 seconds simultaneously with the volume key pressed on the minus side. This is what I was told at Nokia Care. It did work this way, but why it freezes, God knows !!
I think these peoples are saying not gud Lumia 920 without hand experience.currently iam using L 820 its a very gud phone one the issue iam facing battery backup,i can get 20 hour only (daily i can checked internet,call,music,videos,camera)
