    Things that were missed in the Dev. Preview

    1. Uncertainties in Live Tile Update although it updates every minute

    2. More Options esp. Data Connection ON/OFF in the Action Center

    3. Low Battery Life, esp. When the 3G is enabled

    4. No Option to Exit Music till now from the App itself

    5. Contact Image Quality is Poor even though the image is of Good Resolution

    6. Slow Processing in Storage sense, when moving App b/w Int. Memory and SD card

    7. Cannot Watch Live Streaming Yet

    8. Clumsy Settings Page, the options are scrambled and needs to be assembled better

    9. Clear Cache and other data Option not available individually for all the apps

    10. Still no better way to set a ringtone. It ll be good if you Pick a song in the library and Set that as a Ringtone for One or More Contacts

    11. In Multitasking, the minimized apps are Restarting instead of Resuming

    12. Restart Phone Option is Not Available Yet


    These are the things that I felt was missing in the Dev. Preview. I think I covered everything, if I miss something, add it in the comments so that everyone will know about it.

    1-dev have the option to enable live tiles refresh/update every minute (clock hub for instance ). I don't want all my apps like weather to refresh every minute(which will use more data )
    2-this can be expected in GDR release
    3-your phone still lacks the firmware update from OEM. 3G drains more battery when compared to wifi/2G.
    4-it does exit , just press the back button and its closed.
    5-not sure but that was fixed with GDR2 update for windows phone 8.0
    6-are you using a low class memory card ?
    7-I am not sure about this one.
    8-yes they need to fix this.
    9-this is not at all necessary, its upto dev if they want to implement this feature , they can. Btw certain cache files are necessary for certain apps.
    10-I am used to current method available.
    11-if you have a low memory device (512MB device ) this is obvious.OS has to release memory so that other apps can utilize it.
    12-why do one need that ?

    12 is available with holding down power + volume down for 10 second (aka soft reset).

    Thanks! Yes, the tile refreshes every minute, but at times it is not! Many friends of mine too are experiencing the same problem. The music player don't exit, I can still see the "Now Playing" when I press the Volume button, don't know how to exit this. [Currently Im using Insider App to Exit this] I got this Memory card from the Phone itself, dont know which class it is...

    No, Im not talking about Soft Reset. Restart Option like the one we had in Symbian and now in Android.
