    I've heard numerous articles from internet that GDR2 update will further enhance Lumia 920 camera, add new features. Just like Android, it will have an option for task manager where you can kill unnecessary process that consume memory and drain battery. What are your expectations from GDR2 update for Lumia 920?

    Never heard anything about a task manager.

    Should give support for FM radio and makes the Data Sense feature of Windows Phone 8 available. The GDR2 update also makes it easier to select, download, and pin tunes in Xbox Music and improves the accuracy of song info and other metadata.

    The update includes hundreds of other small quality improvements. And it also ensures Windows Phone continues to work with Google services by adding support for the companys newest sync protocolsCalDAV and CardDAV.

    WP doesn't need a task manager and the fast app switching is kinda a task manager as it is. I'm only afraid GDR2 doesn't have enough features and I'm doubtful it will come out soon enough. Still I can't wait for it, I've been a user since 2010 and have always loved the updates.

    Actually, Nokia should be coming out with some pretty cool features at or around the same time as GSR2 so I'm super excited for those. I'm so glad Nokia is currently supporting windows phone full force!

    wonder if he meant the ability to close apps from the app switcher.
    Which will be cool, hate pressing back button x amount of times.
    anyway if that is what he meant, that was in blue/8.1 i believe.

    Apart from closing apps using task manager android offers way to clear RAM which is required for WP devices to save the battery.

    Couldn't agree more. Insane that this wasn't added by six months in. So simple to code.

    I hope they properly support WAV files. My office voicemail system emails me WAV files that WP8 can't open.

    I don't expect anything!...MS seems rather unbothered with WP. MS really do need to keep-up as Android phones have surpassed WP in all nearly all areas esp. with things like notifications, media functions and use, reminders/calendar/user interface and shortcuts, maps (realtime alternative routes, latitude, streetview which is integrated within maps, places that actually show reviews and photos of places listed and esp good with small businesses and places that are so lacking on W8 maps), camera functions and options, and even app management - where WP tiles can become clutter, confusing, even a memory test to remember where the tile was places(esp small). As for iPhone, the soon to be released iOS 7, which is looking very polished and clean yet adding more new features and improvements !..W8 really needs a make over!

    The Lumia 925s ship with GDR2 (from what I've been told?). Not sure what camera enhancements there will be, but I got to play with a 925 today and discovered that my app (ProShot) runs a bit smoother, and when clicking the back button to exit the app and return to the system's camera, the process was a hair quicker than my 920. I'm not sure if this is because there's updated hardware in the device, or if GDR2 actually runs a bit faster. Or perhaps it was all in my head cause that phone is so damn nice.

    I really hope GDR2 fixes this problem. If it doesn't I think Microsoft should pack it in on Windows Phone. It is so totally unacceptable and an embarrassment for them.

    I would love to see the "field test" back since I have the AT&T version and I don't have 4g service, my battery is drained for 5 hours... I wowuld love a smoother WINDOWS PHONE 8. :D Just kidding. I compared my old SGS III to my LUMIA 920(which i've had for a couple of days) I noticed how buggy, laggy and heavy ANDORID is. :D

    Apart from camera and body, hardware is the same so its definitely the OS

    all u have to do is ask someone with a 925 as that ships with both GDR2 and Amber firmware but ur 100% right!! If they haven't fixed it by the time the 925 comes to Aussie I'm buying a HTC1 n I'll come back wen the ecosystem matures (assuming it ever does).

    I'd really love it if the Windows logo becomes a notification light. I think I heard something about the 928 being able to do this, but only when the phone needs an update or while it's charging or something. I'd want it for apps like e-mail/sms/facebook/being able to find my phone in the dark/etc. Seems like such a waste to wake up the screen every few minutes while I'm listening to music to see if I have any notifications. So I'm expecting some sort of notification light. Otherwise, I'm pretty satisfied!

    Would also really appreciate Data Sense, but I'm trying to not get my hopes up for that one. I have a feeling Rogers will thwart that from happening somehow...
