    I think I can live with the "lack" of apps, but the IE thing is frustrating. Sad to see that its not working well, and even worse that there are no other mobile browsers (firefox, chrome) on in the app store.

    Try Nokia Express Browser. You can login using Facebook account in swappa.com. Browser image quality may be less because of compression.

    I used to use chrome a lot, but switched to IE10 completely and uninstalled chrome. Chrome and safari runs a lot process in the back ground and it really kills the overall performance of the system. Each tab consumes a lot of memory and CPU which makes the system run slow. Now I have a silent fan most of the time.

    Yes, IE needs improvement too. I am not saying it is perfect. But I got more feed up with chrome.

    Nope, Nokia express won't login either. The option is there and looks like it will, but I never log in. This is like iphone 3G type problems, this shouldn't be an issue in 2013. Google chrome is leaps and bounds better than internet explorer as far as my time with it, that goes for the mobile version as well as desktop

    I voted mixed. I really only have one complaint, and it's not really Nokia's fault. That complaint is notifications...my god it's terrible. Live tiles I thought would be a nice workaround....but they take forever to update! I'm sure this will be fixed in due time though..
    Hmmmm...I only have one of my friends using a Windows phone...and, his tiles seem to update constantly.....is there a setting for frequency? I am very interested in the 1020 coming from the S3 and this would be an important issue to me.

    I voted "mixed".

    I also HATE the way it handles the music. Why should I have to reboot by phone to close out the music player?
    What do you mean by this? I am just starting to consider this phone.....I currently use PowerAmp on my Android and listen to Pandora quite a bit.....Are you speaking of a stock media player? Also, have you tried the Pandora app? That would be important to me.....Thanks in advance.

    If you play a music file stored on your phone, it shows up forever when you bring up the volume controls. The OS gives you no way to get rid of it from there except for rebooting the phone. This is massively irritating to some people (myself included) while others don't seem to care. I think it's especially troublesome because you have to take care to manually close out apps if you want the best battery life, which is a pain the way the back button works, but even if you go through all that, you can't stop the music. It just doesn't let you.

    The solution is to use a free app called "Stop The Music". It solves this problem by giving you a stop button that removes the music from the volume UI. I highly recommend it. I wish MS would get a clue and solve this in the OS itself.

    Assuming you've stopped or paused the music, doesn't it eventually disappear from the volume UI on it's own if you wait long enough? That's how podcasts and internet radio work for me on the 920, and I don't notice any hit on the battery.

    I know for sure in WP7 it would stay there forever, at least when playing MP3 files. From my early testing it seemed like it worked the same in WP8, and Stop The Music works on WP8, so I figured it was still just as dumb. But now you've got me curious. I'll give it another try to see if it eventually goes away on its own.

    It's not about the battery life, btw. I trust that they aren't wasting battery when the music isn't actually playing. (Although I wouldn't put it past an app...) It's about seeing that last song info there every time you need to adjust your volume or silence/unsilence the phone. Even if it's been 2 days and you've moved on to something else, that song info is there staring you in the face, reminding you of a previous time. It feels like there's something left unfinished. Something you can't close and have no control over. Purely a psychological problem. :)

    lol not a psychological problem. I found it annoying too seeing my podcast or song every time I adjusted the volume but it eventually went away on its own. Not sure how long I had to wait though, maybe an hour or more but that's just a guess.

    I just switched to the 1020 from a 900. The last song played goes away after some time in WP8, not sure exactly how long, but definitely within a couple hours. I actually liked having the last song stay there in WP7, so i could resume listening to the current playlist from the lockscreen without having to open the music app.

    I'm not so sure about that. I stopped listening to music at 7am this morning, and its currently 335 and the Nokia music I was listening to still shows up when I hit the volume buttons. I guess it just doesn't bother me as much.

    The device itself is fantastic. I'm not completely happy, but it has more to do with my need to have the latest and greatest, as opposed to Nokia's phone building prowess. I don't think I need this much camera. The trade-offs for great pictures, including the delay between shots and protuberance on the back, aren't worth it for me, simply because I don't need pictures this good. I'm using the standard camera app, which removes the delay, but I'm still stuck with this unnaturally shaped device. I take casual shots, share them on fb, twitter, ig, and amongst friends and family. The camera on my 920 was perfectly fine. I'm thinking about selling it and getting a 925, but the 16gb limit is holding me back.

    So anyways, the device is great, but it's probably not made for someone like me.

    Very happy with my 1020. Performance seems similar to my 920 but camera is truly amazing.

    Well, I'm not exactly sure how long it takes, but I'm also talking specifically the music+videos app. Never used the Nokia Music app.

    In regards to exiting an app or any software,press and hold the back arrow,pretty intuitive I thought.
