    • Yes battery life sucks on most phones. My 2 year old iphone got me through the workday with at least 50% battery life. 920 gets me to about 20%; ie, not long enough to do anything after work. You say: "charge it at work". I say "why should I have to? and what if I go camping or hiking or on vacation? The great maps will be useless if it costs me 25% of my battery life to get directions driving or using public transit to get there"
    This doesn't sound all that normal. How long is your trip into work? How often are you using your phone at work - and what are you using it for?

    If you have to go camping - the charging pack is useful for a shorter trip, along with conserving battery by turning off WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, and enabling battery saver mode. If you're going for longer, do what I do and take a dumb phone with you. Frustrating though it may seem, they just go on and on in terms of battery life.


    And others, please stop the name calling. It's immature and adds nothing to the thread at all.
    This is a forum, try to be a little more inclusive and actually listen to the OP, rather than dismissing anything he says out of hand.

    In regards to the battery, maybe you got a faulty phone. I've been reading similar reports on here. Maybe hit up the Nokia corporate, Stephen Elop or whoever and have them send you a new one. As for the apps you need to hit up the developers about that.

    If his first post was less vitriol most of us wouldn't react so. His second post, aside from the first part laid out his concerns and issues in a reasonable manner. Overreacting on both sides yes. Most of us are willing to help when someone approaches with a concern, but when it looks as if you only joined to make one post bashing (and this goes on all forums) you come across as a troll instead of someone with legitimate problems.

    I work in customer service, and if you called in and went off on a rant like that I would basically tune you out until you stopped venting and actually started making sense.

    Just something to consider.

    HP, I appreciate your understanding of Pats, but I am also a logical person who tries to analyze all aspects of a situation. We have a person who admits they came to WP from iOS as it was a 'good value'. The person doesn't specify why they thought WP8 was a good value, but they do claim they were frustrated by their iPhone ("So here's to two more years of assured frustration").

    So now we know pats was frustrated and not satisfied with the iPhone. He/she tried a 920 and claim it had bad battery life and was of poor build. I can say the battery life was bad until I tweaked my settings (to settings I felt should have been set by default to off). Now it's great.

    As to their assertion the screen cracked, well, my 920 is built like a tank, as I have seen with two friends with 920s. Mine is like brand new. No squeaks, shakes, rattles, burps, or farts.

    Next he/she claims a miniscule app selection. I ask from what? the iPhone with its bloated fart app and notes library? I use the apps on my 920 more than I ever did on my Evo Shift or 3GS. And integrated social rocks.

    If pat is really an iPhone user who is frustrated and not satisfied with the iPhone as he/she claims then try Android next. It's not a bad mobile OS. And it can't be worse that what he admits was a frustrating OS he had in the first place.

    So anyone who doesn't like Windows Phone automatically becomes a troll? Why? Is this OS made and designed by God that if for some reason you don't like it it means you're an ***** or a troll?
    No, but when a person has a sum total of two posts and uses them to make claims that apply equally to other products; lies about Apple's repair policy; makes false claims regarding Nokia advertising (e.g., indestructible); touts another product (and OS); and spews hostility from start to finish that seems rather troll-like. BTW, if Apple really replaces user damaged iPhones free of charge, I would love to know why so many vendors around Phoenix post the price for replacing broken iPhone screens.

    First get the butter off your fingers. Why did you drop it from 3 feet? the minimum is 50 ft, so next time drop it from the second floor. And lastly, tell the one person you know not to buy the Lumina! I know why you dropped it, you must be a girly man. ha ha. Sorry for being a bully.
