    Yup, the apps takes some time to open. A fraction of a second more than previous. Battery is a welcome change!

    In BT share there r two options - files and pictures, while pictures work flawlessly, the file thing is sh*t. I transferred a few pdf/xls from my laptop, but its showing as unsupported file type on lumia.

    The apps are not slow, the tiles that mostly large ones are a bit slow to respond. The music controller is ugly. When contacted with Nokia they said that one more update is due which will have kids sections and lens feature (just Nokia) but he couldn't confirm the date or anything but he said that its in the pipeline for sure. So rest assured as long as Nokia is with us :)

    The WP 7.8 update is now available for Nokia Lumia 610 also. 4 days ago I got call from Nokia care that its available for my phone but unfortunately it was not for 610 and he flushed my phone. But today he called me again and apologized for previous act and said its finally available. I updated my phone and posted what I feel abt 7.8 on 610 on my blog. Do check out. Http://mobihalo.wordpress.com

    The bt sharing is nice but it do not support video sharing. That was bad.
    After update phone become slow. Tapping a tile taking longer to open app than previous. Are U guys having same problem?
    The Bing lock screen is nice but now music controler dock is not embedded in it and permanently attached to volume dock. That's bad coz it looks ugly on lock screen with black background. Is that same in ur lumias?
    Here are some pics

    Oh, yes. I really forgot about that lenses and kids corner update. Thanx for pointing. But is that means I hv to again flash my device. If so, than no thanx. I better update via Zune no matter how much time it takes.
    BTW, did I mentioned it took only 5 min for my phone to update! That was really fast.

    Probably that update will be different from this one. May still be called 7.8 or maybe not. One of nokia's recent leaked internal slide showed WP7 and WP8 support/update timeline and it was shown that their are updates post to WP7.8 (referred as WP7.X update in slide).

    lets see, I guess it'll be available by Zune when 7.8 is released globally, so lets wait and watch coz there are some features missing and Nokia said that 7.8 was initially being sent to developers for bug testing and all so there is a hope :)

    I jst now downloaded creative studio.
    7.8 is amazing
    only one thing isn't working is
    Ringtone maker app.
    It shows connect to Zune..
    is ur ringtone maker app working?
    12-24-2012 09:26 AM
  18. dipayanster's Avatar
    yes ringtone maker app is working fine, i tested a mp3 which in already in my phone. i could cut it and save it and use it as my ringtone without any problem. only downside is, it only allows me to cut 20 seconds clips, no idea why it does not allow to cut 40 seconds clip as usual.
    do you have any drm free mp3 on your device? i believe it does not allow us to cut drm protected musics.

    use bing vision on the QR code given in this page Ringtone Maker and Bluetooth Share for Windows Phone 7.8 now available | Windows Phone Central to download ringtone maker and try using it again. :)
    I tested mine again just now. its working perfectly on my 710.
    this app is not that good. i use audacity on my laptop and it lets me apply fade in/fade out effects, amplify/ normalize the clips and lets me cut 40 second duration ringtones, none of which can be done in ringtone maker and it only allows to pick up a 20 second clip from a mp3. I am sticking to ringtone-making-on-laptop-then-sync-by-zune routine as before.

    Apps were a bit buggy to install at first fresh flash but now it's fine. Many of my Friends updated it too and all is well.
