    On my way back to Windows Phone take 3

    Always loved how the WP works.

    Its a phone OS, not a phone pretending to be a desktop = android, or a dumbed down to heck for fools = iOS

    1st attempt, faulty from new overheating 820 and also coicided with Google ruining GMail sync = returned

    2nd attempt, faulty from 2nd had 930 with screen lift, but GMail working perfect = returned

    And now.

    3rd, just ordered a refurb 735 in cyan from Amazon.

    Idea is that if this works and does not go faulty, use it till the MS Lumia 940 come out and relegate it to backup/night out phone.

    Good luck with this. I had a look at a 2nd hand 735 in my local CEX and they wanted 155 for it, so you definitely got a good deal. It is a very elegant device and takes the nano SIM, like the 930.

    I have a 930 with the screen lift issue, but Denim definitely alleviates it.

    No, the device had the problem from new and before I had had any chance to use it in anger.

    I have never had any chronic over heating problem and am convinced it has more to do with usage patterns than faulty devices. For instance, I never leave Bluetooth or Wi-Fi on when I'm not using them, so avoid drawing too much power from the battery.

    When we hear about over heating and quality control problems, it always seems to be the same individuals. Whether that's because they are unlucky, finicky or unable to use the device efficiently, I can't say. I also can't say that other makes of device are any more reliable than Nokia/Microsoft.

    I'm on my second Nokia 930, not because the device had any problems, no over heat, well none more than any other device I've use to play things like asphalt, no screen lift, reason is I'm a loon that just couldn't make his mind up. Back n forth to Android and iOS, all I can say is live tiles... Perfect for my post it note Life, nothing comes close. The 735 looks a nice device

    Well the 735 never arrived

    tracking showed it got to the Manchester main depot, and never left, or it did?

    We don't know, lost or stolen, anyhoo, I've been refunded and the amazon reseller is making a claim for the phone.
