    I have the RM-937 running on Fido's network. Its been about 3 weeks now. Only complaint would be battery issue. If I play a game (Dungeon Hunter 4), it drains my battery like crazy. Gets pretty hot as well. Normal use, browsing, texting, light gaming, I can get about a day and a half.

    Also, charging takes a long time as well. With about 30% remaining and I charge for about 6hrs, I only get to 90%+/-. Not sure if that's normal

    One noob question. For wireless charging do I need to get a wireless charging case? Or can I buy a wireless charger and use it right away (without the case).

    I was at an AT&T and saw their 1520 has 3 metal dots near the middle of the case and mine doesn't.
    The RM-937 has wireless charging built in. Currently I am using the nokia DT-900 wireless charger and it works great. Charges just as fast as a usb charger. Also, it takes me about 3hours and 30 minutes to charge to full from perhaps 30%. 6 hours seems waaaay to long if you ask me. What charger are you using?

    My only gripe, and it's an issue I knew about but still chose to buy the phone, is if I'm driving along the highway the phone sometimes drops calls as its switching from 3G to H+ or another frequency band. I probably would not have this issue if I got the 938 variant but I couldn't justify the almost $300 difference(got a great deal on the 937). If anyone else is on the FIDO network in Toronto, let me know if you experience the same thing.
    I am running the RM-937 on the Koodo network, and I must say that reception has been just as great as when using any other phone. I never get any dropped calls and 4G speeds are very fast. Perhaps it is your network, or you are in a location that has poor reception? You might want to look into it with Fido

    Just wanted to let every know I've been using the Windows 8.1 preview for a few days now it is great. I was getting impatient waiting for the official update and I realize there is pretty much no reason to really wait for it. The update is very solid. Bugs are rare and if ever they do occur they are quite minor. The phone runs so well that I highly doubt the official update will be different. Just letting you guys know just in case someone is hesitant to try the preview on their 937.

    Thanks soul347.

    I'm using the wall charger and adapter that it came with. Perhaps the adapter is the cause of the slow charge

    I'm using mine on Rogers with no network issues. Love how I can still get LTE if needed. I looked at the 938 but for $500 the 937 was a steal and the big price difference to get the extra bands was not worth it. Wifi signal is damn strong on this device. As good as my iPad.

    But it takes forever to charge though and I'm pretty sure it is because of the cheap adapter.

    Just curious what is acceptable for battery drain. I lost 6% over 8 hours last night. Is that in line with what I should expect ?

    Also remember that it will take long to charge because it has a giant battery in it compared to most phones. My wireless charger can charge my lumia 920 in blazing fast speed, while my 1520 will take 2-4 hours. It doesn't bother me considering how much juice this thing can hold.

    6% over 8 hours sounds fine. What I find with my 1520 is that the first 10% drains extremely fast for some reason. After that, the battery lasts long. After a work day of medium to heavy use, I rarely ever go below 50%. The 1520's battery is one of the highest selling points because you'll find that no matter what you throw at it, you'll probably never run out of battery by the end of the day.

    Noticed after banging the adapter a few times the charge is now much faster! Lol

    Maybe WP8.1DP is to blame, but I am also enjoying crazy battery drain for no reason whatsoever. This is with nothing running as far as I can tell.

    MS really should add an advanced mode in battery saver where they show which process (not just apps) has used what actual percentage of the battery capacity since last charge.

    My video has gone to ****. When I film it records jerky almost spastic frames even in bright light. Any suggestions? Photos are excellent. Video is horrible. 😞

    Edit... If you drop the frame rate to 24 the video is much better. Try it!

    No one has recieved the update with the RM-937 version the country variant as it is called. Hong Kong has to update us on 8.1 also if you do some research we do NOT get Cortana off the bat as its made generally for english speaking countries and canadians. The process is under testing however, so we can expect something soon .

    Hey. I have a HK 1520 got about a month ago. My network+ finally shows my voice call counter after I used the software recovery and updated n+. I updated n+ when I first got phone but it didn't show up til after recovery (I had to resort to ##634# to see counter). Anyway, it always shows 00:00:00 before recovery after recovery, and now. Does anyone else have this problem. My 920 counter was fine. Does anyone know what this means? Also, after flashing HK, does the problem still exist? Thanks guys.

    Got a HK Rm937 2 weeks ago. phone's great! only bug I ran into is occasional tap instead of scroll and sometimes when the screen just woke up (still on lock screen) some random taps or scrolls happen for a few seconds and it doesn't register my touches until it stops having its own mind. I use it on Rogers and signal has been great on 3G.

    PS I also find this phone's WiFi signal is weaker than my 920... are all the 1520s like this?
    I have random touchs on my screen when the phone wakes up, not always, but IT'S there, i hope cyan fix this, mine is also a HK RM-937. This is some issue adressed to the phone's processor, i bet!
    Wi-fi is great here though.

    Mine only takes two and a half hours to go from empty to full battery (socket charger) and i love it, my old samsung galaxy S2 had a battery with half the capacity and used to take the same amount of time.

    My HK model is still on Lumia Black, and checking for phone updates doesn't show anything. Are you guys in the USA? Any other reasons why mine wouldn't show an update yet?

    Edit: d'Oh, forgot about the Cyan issue for those on Dev Preview with Bitlocker enabled.

    Got the Lumia Cyan update yesterday. But, it did not fix my bluetooth problem. My bluetooth still does not reconnect after the first pairing session.
    Also i noticed my call quality sucks now. I never had issue with breaking phone calls, today for 20 minute phone call it happened a few time for upto 1 minute periods.

    Oops, yes, that's it. I'm on DP GDR1 while connected to company Exchange server. I guess I'll have to wait until MS figures out the .. bitlocker issue? Was that it? Anyway, the waiting game continues for some of us.

    Hello everybody.
    I have a lumia 1520, the problem is when I record video with Nokia camera app, there is a continuous background sound that alters any clip I shoot. However with Windows phone camera app, this issue does not exist but the sound's quality is better with Nokia camera app.
    Perhaps it's related to the four mics ? And directional stereo ? I have all updates and WP 8.1 GDR 1
    The issue is there since I got the phone with WP 8.0
    Please help !!!!
