Hi guys, new member here. I recently picked up a Black Nokia Lumia 920 after being recommended it by a good friend of mine. I previously had a Samsung Galaxy S3.
I've got a couple issues I'm hoping you guys could help me with and possibly clarify, or know if there is a fix for it in the near future:
I LOVE the interface, the whole tile system etc... but there are some HUGE drawbacks that nearly completely ruin this Phone for me.
*Why is there no option to separate SIM Card Contacts from Hotmail/Facebook Contacts in my Contact list? Seriously DUMB move - Hotmail Contacts are bunched in with my regular SIM contacts that I copied over. I've had my hotmail account for about 12 years or so, so I have about 3000 pointless contacts from my old teenage MSN years. A complete pain in the *** when I'm browsing my SIM contacts. There's no way to remove them aside from individually removing them one at a time. Yeah right.
*No drop down menu for Notifications and settings - I know iOS and Android are doing this, but it's a great feature. I'd love to be able to put my phone on silent, or turn Bluetooth and Wireless on or off within seconds, not having to go through myriad of menus.
*Nokia Drive is HORRIBLE, seriously really bad Navigation compared with the Galaxy's navigation.
*Why are most Apps on the phone non-functional until you download them? Why are the icons even there? Who releases a phone without the ability to read .pdf or use navigation straight from the box?
*Why am I not able to download an mp3 I attached to my email from my computer so I could listen to it at work? Could do it on the Android.
*No BitTorrent program? No "downloads" folder or a means to download anything.
*Purchased an album online to listen to at work, can't even download the mp3's from the link.
*YouTube videos work occasionally, but usually I get an error message saying my device can't play them.
*No Flash playing capabilities? Went to check out a friends band's Myspace page to have a listen, couldn't do that.
*The Bing search engine (the magnifying glass) is completely hopeless. Returns no where near the amount of helpful search results as Google.
*The Facebook app is incredibly useless.
*No separate volume control for Media playback and Ringtone.
I really want to like this phone. I love the interface and the way it looks, the feel of the phone and it looks great. Seems like it has potential. But straight from the box it is way too basic and missing so many simple features that other manufacturers are including. It had so many reviews praising it, but what for? I'm finding it hard to find much that is actually does a good job of rather than things it just doesn't do.
Is there any updates available or upcoming that can rectify some of these issues that you guys know of? I really want to like it, because as far as build quality, smoothness of interface and also the look of the interface , I really love it, but it HAS to be able to tick some other boxes for me.
I hope you guys have some good news and maybe I've somehow not figured out some features. Thanks guys!
