- Nokia Lumia – any reason not to…
Got an 820, same sentiments as andyfla. It’s fine, it was crazy cheap and couldn’t justify insane cost of iPhones anymore. But that’s about it. Hardware is nice and iPhone 4S level, WP is really slick and zippy, but usability is pretty woeful and feels old fashioned features wise in places. Home screen pinning is ace but doesn’t scale well if you have more than a few non standard appsPosted 4 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber
I had a 920. Lovely phone, nice OP system, wouldn’t work with bluetooth in my car. Took it back foran Iphone which I didn’t want but works with the car no problem.
Bluetooth connectivity is a bit of a nightmare if you search the web about it. Not sure if they fixed it yet or have attempted to though.Posted 4 years agoOllyMember
Really rate my 800. only crticism is there is no alert light, and the charger port is hidden behind a little pop open door. surprised i havent ripped it off yet.
There is a strava compatible app (if no one has mentioned it yet)
its called “chaser”
only records and uploads, but thats no major drama. Overall it works fine. Comes up on strava as recorded with a piephone.Posted 4 years agoleffeboySubscriber
Well you need a ‘microsoft account’ to use the phone, which is basically a windows live thing or some other provider, but I am not sure you actually need one or even to own a windows phone to join in the ‘rooms*’. I just think the experience is better if you have one.
I don’t recall what the stipulations were. We just both got phones, I added myself and her to the room and it all started working.
The phone has a list of people with whom you interact, and it knows how you can interact with them. I don’t know if it knows she has a windows live login or it’s just sending standard calendar invites. I think that would probably work cross platform. There’s a version of One Note for Android, so you’d assume the shopping list bit would also work.
* there’s a family room by default, but you can set up other rooms. Would be handy for a club or your biking mates or something.Posted 4 years agorangeroyMember
lokked at tesco link posted on here price £230, looked at currys price £366, but currys do price match + 10% off if from selected sites etc, tesco been one of the sites listed.Posted 4 years ago
phone currys & after some major wait on a 0844 line get to speak to some person who feigns not to be able to find tesco web page, then says will ring back in 10 mins, PAH!! 4 hrs later no call back & check on currys site item no longer in stock, (it has to be in stock to get price match)
looks like tesco will be getting a sale 😕
Molgrips – trust me, it’s rubbish
The more expensive ones might be better. The keyboard is slow and unintelligent, the power/sleep button is unresponsive, it turned itself off earlier, the calendar isn’t easy to view, phone book is crap, shall I go on?
It’s a work phone so I need some basic things to be excellent, it’s not. Luckily I also have a work tablet (as well as laptop) so I tend to use my phone as a hotspot and do things via the tablet
I’m tech savvy, the phone is trying to be clever but really it’s just slow and cheap. I really hope the more expensive ones are betterPosted 4 years agolexinooMember
We have apple,android and wp8 in our house,and i am not a fan boy of any of them,but i must say my lumia920 is faster and more reliable than my nexus7,but on par with my wife’s nexus 4. Nexus4 is better for google stuff obviously ,and for apps and games,but my lumia is better for camera,video and music in my opinion.But its still early days for wp8 so i hope they will catch up.However,to be honest if i was buying a new phone now,it would probably be a nexus or Samsung galaxy s3/4Posted 4 years agosamjgeorge86Member
Selling my Lumia 925, Love it, great phone, great camera, and love the music… BUT, It does silly things, like the alarm isn’t loud enough (at all), and there is no actual “back” button on the web browser, if you close it to do something else, and come back, the only option to go “back” will take you back to the home screen. Tedious.Posted 4 years ago
Media wise, Can’t beat the Lumia I don’t think anyway, I’ve been through Galaxys (S3, S4), HTC, iPhone (4s, 5), Blackberry (Z10 and Q10), and I’d rate the Lumia one of the best! But, I would put it behind the Z10! That phone is just great. But the os can let it down so much at times! So much potential! Just needs to sort it’s self out!
Anyway, anyone wants to buy a Lumia 925, 2 months old, 32GB… Message me 😛
