Number 2 fix: Play some games. That get's Cortana nice and warm. Should keep you warm in bed.
Welcome to the all-new Windows Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
I'm running a WP 8.1 Phone with 512MB of RAM and do get the "Loading" and "Resuming" screens while switching apps too,but not for 5-7 seconds. Maybe for 2-3 seconds. I don't think that can be helped.
I highly suggest switching to the UC Browser or the stock IE browser on your phone. Opera mini is quite buggy.
I really can multitask on my phone though,I don't think you should be having such problems on a Lumia 920. :/
The backup always works. It takes a while cuz it backs up your phone settings,apps installed and pretty much everything that you've customized. But,it always works.
Hence the message every time, "Something went wrong. Try again later."
My biggest peev at the moment is the inability to force a sync of my pictures to my onedrive account retrospectively. How hard can it be to add some smarts to the app to do comparisons of the content in both places and sync up the missing ones. This should also be allowed to sync high res photo's over 3/4g mobile networks, not just WiFi networks as a lot of developed countries now have decent mobile data packs, or at least off the options to users please.
How do you figure that? It is free.This isn't feature related but, Windows Phone OS is more expensive.
Windows Phone does not play m4a files!!!
How do you figure that? It is free.
You'd be amazed but most iOS devices can really only have about one tab open in Safari, and switching tabs forces the previous page to be reloaded.
Instead of the resuming screen (which I cant say I see a lot of), iOS apps flat out stop and you have to wait for the whole app to re load from scratch. I've had this on my 4S, and my iPad. $600 equipment rendered useless. Try copying text from Safari into OneNote. Absolute hell. I've never had to deal with that on Windows Phone thank god. I'll take the resuming screen any day.
What drives me bonkers in WP is OneNote. I love OneNote so much and the app on wp8.1 is so barebones. It is always open instantly though so I cant complain too much. I wish you could pin notebooks to the start screen like the tablet app.
Background Downloading in IE and other download apps. It doesn't exist and it means you have to stay on the download page before the task completes. You also can't open tabs in the background on IE which is stupid.
I can say Windows for small device is free looking at the hardware you got with for a specific price, its the same as what you would get for a device without OS, but for WP I can't be sure, since other phone on similar price range have double the specifications, equally good camera and build quality. Sure the other phone have to compensate for their lagdroid OS, but if Windows Phone can perform as well as double the spec Android phone, WP should have cost half of that phone if the OS is free, probably it will sell better.
Hey Great harrie,
Ive tried your suggestion, using that mighty file manager app.
And guess what, after selecting hundred of photos, and tapping that ?move button? it does not display my current albums! Great eh?!
There goes your ?dont put the blame in the os when you dont know blah blah?.
