    Since we all see the source of all region updates, but up until now over months, I see no update available to my Lumia 920, I just want my back camera to take sharper photo. Moreover the front one take too soft photo, is the new portico update fix the front cam issue as well?
    But if the supplier both Nokia and Microsoft give less support like this, next phone I will move back to Android (Sony) or iOS

    Luckily I have a Nexus 7 tablet, so most of the time I am on it. My lumia 920 now is used only for phone call and photograph.

    The phone has only been out 4 months. Do we expect weekly updates these days?

    It takes time to get updates approved by each cellular provider - the delay is often not the manufacturer. We know the update has been around for 2 months, so the delay is not with Nokia or Microsoft.

    Also be happy that we do get updates! It was very recently that your purchased a phone and that was your phone forever, with no improvements. These days we now get 2 or 3 updates a year adding new features and fixing issues which I think it great!

    It fixes front facing and rear camera. And android sure as **** isn't the best with updating either. It just takes patience unfortunately, but it will def be worth it.

    I sincerely hope that you are joking about leaving Windows Phone for iOS or Android over updating. iOS only gives one meaningful update per year--we've gotten one with Windows Phone after 2-3 months.

    Android gives you about a year of support TOTAL. I had an HTC Droid Incredible, and I got one significant update to it in the 2 years I had it (from 2.2 to 2.3). The issue is typically a carrier-based one, not an OEM- or OS-based one.

    Ya, leaving WP8 for Android/iOS because of updates is like going from a Civic to a Hummer because you want better gas mileage. Flawed logic!

    The phone has been out for just 3 months, patience is virtue.

    So you're lazy to wait for updates and not lazy to dump WP8 for Android that has a questionable update history? Love the logic there.

    I feel the phone shipped with a "half baked" OS so the last update should have been a big one. Unfortunately it wasn't and knowing most people don't even have that update yet makes me even more frustrated thinking about how long the next one will be.

    I just wish we had some sort of timeline from MS or Nokia. I know carriers screw that up, but a "Hey, we are working on this, this and this for next update which is coming xx/xx/2013". I understand how tech works now days and I know everything has its shortfalls and needs an update. I just hate being in the dark. I like second Tuesday updates from MS. I wish they could have pushed thru the carrier bypass for updates. I think we would be a little more informed if carriers weren't involved.

    I used to left Android and iOS to WP8 because the Android Phone I used is no longer supported. I hate iOS because Apple ecosystem (even I have Macbook and iPad), and there is no improvement of the OS itself. So I move to WP8. I saw many countries are getting the update but not mine. The actual thinking inside my head is why the update is not just rolled out to the worldwide like iOS one. In my country, Thailand, is not like in the US that only ATT can sell 920. In this country, Nokia itself is selling the phone, so if there is the update rolling out, Nokia should promt to all the devices asap right. But there is nothing up until now. That why I am
    sick and lazy like this.

    I love WP8 but just want the related firms to give reasonable support unlike this, American can take sharper picture but Asian? No no? This is the point.

    If you have an unlocked 920 no one worldwide has gotten it yet. I know you are upset but it will be coming soon. I don't know why unlocked phones were last, usually the opposite.

    Fitu Pham has a fair point about the unlocked phones. If the update has been knocking around for a couple of months then why are those of us who bought unlocked still waiting? Personally I'm not too bothered but the point is a fair one.

    How can you be too lazy to wait for something? That is what being lazy is all about.

    Just got me thinking. Could it be because if unlocked worldwide L920's always get update first, it might sway some consumers away from carriers? Might be possible right?

    I was just thinking that maybe AT&T and a few other carriers may have paid up front to get the updates sooner. Seems a bit odd, but they may be realizing how much people like to tout that they get updates first. Would be a good business move by carriers to do that.

    Regardless of what any of us think of updates WP8 is somewhat buggy. For a platform with such a small market share it seems like Microsoft would want to push an update out as soon as possible. Reading through these forums there are quite a few issues with WP8. I know not everyone has these problems but I have some of them and it is very frustrating. I'm probably not the only one regretting their choice of phone.

    I hope you are not one of those cats that a phone defines who you are. Kind of shallow to say the least. Having said that, I say go where you want to be Fitu. These smart phones are tools and if the tool you have doesn't fit the task, get the one that does. Will you be missed? Probably.not. Will anyone notice? Maybe. But if the reason you want to go is valid and I think it is, the door swings both ways.

    you mentioned that you are in Thailand correct? I am from Thailand also and here if you wish to update the OS you can bring your phone to NOKIA CARE which will take less than 2 hours to update to Portico, why don't you just do that furthermore they also confirmed that if there is another update comes and it is newer you still can do OTA update. As for me I think it is very normal to give them sometimes since the whole system is brand new few month is no harm and I respect the fact that they cannot make everyone happy but as long as they are trying their best. I will give them a chance

    It takes time to get the updates approved and be made available, so you have to be patient. So far only a few countries gotten the update, including US. Majority of 920s are still awaiting update. Also, if you go back to Android, good luck getting even the smallest update. It took me a year to get an update for my Xoom. Android phones are rarely updated because they are being stamped out like toilet paper. Average Android device gets about 6 months of support.

    Us, the owner of the unlocked worldwide Lumia phones are so unfortunate. Thanks for the tip. Indonesia also haven't got the Portico update yet. Gonna visit a Nokia Care soon and hopefully they're able to help updating the phone.

    Yes, very possible and it could be they negotiated that with Nokia. I am only aware of three countries where the carriers lock you in predominantly. The USA, UK, and Canada. There must be another reason why the unlocked did not get first updated outside these countries.

    Yes, actually I went to the Nokia Care before posting this topic. They can update the phone software for me, but all contents would be wiped away, they mentioned that. So I give up.
    But let's think over, should I need to go to the Nokia Care everytime update push? Should I wipe away all my phone contents everytime I update? That is not really made a sense.

    Up until now, there is no any update yet.

    P.S. Even Asus Padfone still take sharper outdoor photo than a lumia 920, sigh...
