Received my new phone and the thing is lovely. However, I am having a couple of issues and any help given would be much apreciated.
Keyboard - When trying to access these forums it will not let me use the keyboard. It pops up for a second and then pops back down again. Same happens in landscape and portrait mode. I have not tried any other forums, but imagine the same will apply.
Smartglass - using is good, but I cannot use the keyboard in landscape, which is far beter for me. I hold the phone in landscape for all texts etc and this enables me to type with two thumbs.
Battery - seems to drain fairly quickly and I have everything turned off except WiFi. I have done a complete discharge and recharge to full. Also, doing another as we speak. I have been playing the free word game quite a bit theough so difficult to guage use. My simis also not yet activated so I am assuming it will be worse once I can receive calls and texts.
Kids Room - I set this up and think it is a superb idea.Problem is that I also set a password for the adult bit and it requires the same password to be entered for kids room. I would like kids room to be password free as my kids will easily get in to the adult bit and wreak havoc. Surely this is a no brainer.
Emails - can I set them up to refresh hourly? Currently I am having to go in and do it manually. I do have battery save set, but had hoped that it would at least update hourly. Otherwise what is the point in having this as a notification on the homescreen.
Free wireless charger code - Where is it? got the phone yesterday and can't see any sticker with a code on. there is one tiny sticker that was on the phone wrapper, is this it?
Vibrate - is there anyway to stop this thing vibrating once I have typed something in? It does it when I log in to this site and both after entering my login and entering the password. Such a powerful vibrate too!
Charging - how do I know when it is fully charged? I left it in yesterday and after about 2 hours it was full of juice, but I gathered this info from going in to settings and then battery. Bit of a long way around when all I want to do is glance and check.My HTC Desire had a lovely LED that would be red until charged and would then go green.
Camara - I took a shot yesterday with and without flash in rather low light. Yes it picked up some good detail, but the one without flash has a really green tint to elements of the picture. The one with flash is actually great, so quite impressed with that.
Games - I'd like the ability,particularly on kids room to allow people not to use my profile. By default would be ideal. All my family have their own XBox Live profiles, so would be nice if they could use those. I am quite protective over my achievements and stats and don't want my 4 year old killing them. Would also be a fabulous way to introduce others to the platform.
Brightness - I have this turned down real low, and it is still very bright. Can I get it even lower?
Screen - I need to protect this beauty, do I need a special plastic cover? I don't want to kill the sensitivity completely. I have it turned right down at the moment and it is fantastic.
Quick settings - Is there a way of having a tile that connects or disconnects various things eg the WiFi, mobile internet, Bluetooth, NFC, flight mode, brightness etc? I know I can add a settings tile, but I wanted somethingmore direct. Indeed, I have not even tried mobile internet yet, I am sure it must be in there though.
Plus points - Such a nice looking device. The contacts transfer tool was perfect. Did it over Bluetooth and it was effortless.The screen is superb, no dead pixels, no bleed. Vibrate scares me a bit though, I imagine this thing registers on Richter scales all over the planet. Weight is lovelly but I need to find a nice soft rubber cover as I don't want to damage my new toy.
