    Maybe it hasn't made it to Switzerland yet?
    No, it's there, I'm installing now :)

    It was just hidden for some strange reason, it only showed an update for another app.

    There is the update. It won't install over 3G though, maybe a setting. At least in the screenshots the features seem to be there, now let's see if it's fast.

    I don't even hope it's as good as the iOS version, but... finally!
    Wonder why it won't download. It's only 6MB.

    Maybe she wasn't interested in larger phones? I held the 1320. It's big, even for my mitts. As for the L930, that would be the Icon for her.

    I think WP needs to start upping their game. A new Motorola came out with pretty good specs for a low end phone.
    Agreed.WP needs to buck up to stay in the race.I dont know about you guys but the NL630 was a disappointment for me :/

    I personally think they should ditch the 512MB phones. There's no need for them.

    Exactly my thoughts.If they had launched a 1Gb ram device with dual core processor,I would have definitely bought it but 512mb ram?ugh.not again.I have suffered enough of 512mb ram in my 620's gaming life :p

    What irks me is that people seem to still like them. I personally think it's pointless. Other low end handsets are coming out with 1GB RAM I think that's a clear indication it's time we ditched 512MB.

    Well, this is only a very early hands-on (I'm in the lab after all).

    + The features are finally, finally there!
    + The design is much more usable
    + The software feels faster

    I hope there will be further updates to improve the following points

    - The design is much more useful, but also very generic. I know you can't have anything, but I feel like there's a trend of moving away from Metro to features. Why can't we have both?
    - The live tile is still not to my taste. The design has slightly changed (it's less green now) but it still flips to the current album art and back to the Spotify icon in big and very big mode. That could really offer more. And at least stop the flipping.
    - The app feels faster, yes, but it still could be improved. I had slight... how do you call this in English? It paused sometimes for a moment when using it.
    - I think the phone got hot while using it, maybe that was just my imagination, but if it's true I don't think battery issues are much improved.

    But if it doesn't soak my battery empty, I think I'm pretty happy with Spotify now. So I will probably complain about Whatsapp solely in the future.

    That's the problem with Microsoft.They don't have any decent mid-range phone.Either you go for a 520/620/720 or you go to the high end range 920/930/icon/1320/1520.
    I know 525 and 820 also have 1Gb ram but they dont appeal to me much.MSFT should have made 630 with 1GB ram :/

    The 920 wasn't even high-end when it was released almost two years ago. Except of the camera of course.

    I won't buy a new phone before the bigger iPhone is announced anyway. I want to see what they have to offer.

    But the updates will make waiting much comfortable ;-)

    I think it would be dangerous for Apple to make it more expensive than current iPhones. They are already only in the high-end market, even the "mid-range" 5C is as expensive as other high-end phones. And the iPhones are already more expensive than every other phone.

    There are complains on the Spotify update post on the main page that the iOS app is much prettier :P

    And that it offers free Spotify. So, yeah, there's an app for that :P

    Yeah I know. I saw that too. I'm sure the free service will come eventually. Maybe with the next update which is apparently coming soon. People will always find a reason to complain.

    What I'm waiting for is the 'innovation' of the larger screen on the iPhone, because no one thought of that before. :P

    Patents to follow.
