    Viewfinder is grainy here also but no grains on the output camera pictures.
    I see grains in the picture if zoomed in, maybe because the screen is 420p, will have to check the pics on a computer.
    I can say that my images are nowhere near what I have seen in reviews.

    View it on PC or with the HD Photo Viewer app.

    since you wrote a review, i have a question regarding the frequency of apps resuming screen and fluidness while switching between apps. i'm currently using 3gs on ios 5 and setting app took more than 3 seconds to load which is a PITA when in a hurry, thanks for the answer^^

    monsta007, mind if I use this quote? Very nice.

    Some of you may argue that WP has a lot lesser apps compared to Android, but hey would you install 10 apps that want to know what color underwear you are wearing, or would you install 1 app that does what it should do without bothering your privacy? I prefer the latter.

    i think he wants to add songs to an existing playlist.
    You can do that by playing the playlist, going to your music list, picking your song and pressing "add to now playing" as mentioned before. Save it as a new playlist. You'll have an extra playlist now with that added song/s.


    As for removing something from the playlist...I don't know how you could do that on the phone.

    I saw it on HD Photo Viewer, minor improvements but still grainy, have to check on PC.

    Apps switch extremely quick here, no lags of any kind. I am not sure what is "PITA"?
    Apps load in 2 secs or so :), if those are games it may take a bit longer depending on what device you are on, but hey I don't play games.

    No thats a copyrighted quote and I've already filed a patent application for it :p, feel free to use it.

    IMHO Music Player on WP8 is confusing and featureless. You cant even easily play shuffle all.
    Also there is a bug, if you come back and hit on paused square right above "Music" text, it links to another application.
    On the Lumia 720 the sound output is pretty low as well. My ipod video kicks its.
    Agreed as I input around 500-1000 or so songs (various albums) in 1 go and create playlists on the move, its quite a task to do that on the wp8, maybe I still have to learn a lot of moves here lol.

    I'm not used to syncing the phone via zune/pc manager software, as I dumped the folders as is and created the favorites list while I was on the move.

    1 more thing that surprises me is that there is no 'favourites' list, I do see a heart icon beside the album art, i did tap on that but is there a list of songs that have a heart tap mark on them?

    If you are using the default earphones, the sound*will* suck, I use JBL J22i, can't hear above 18-20/30

    All you need to do to shuffle all is from the song list tap play at the top then when the first song is playing tap the shuffle icon next to the album inck

    the "bug" is not the music player at fault. Whatsapp uses the audio API to stay alive in the background, which is why when you tap that square, whatsapp opens. If you use stop the music, it will get rid of that "bug" but won't let whatsapp run causing lack of notifications etc.

    The lack of a scrollbar for fast forwarding through media is very strange, its universally used in media apps now.

    Switched from an xperia S to lumia 720 and my experience has been nothing short of fantastic! I don't know what nokia did but the windows platform is such a convenience to use and very seamless in integrating all your basic needs and more. I have been a nokia user eversince the 5110/3310 days and i predict nokia will rise back to the top of the mobile phone industry sooner than later. Windows phone 8 is magical and you need to experience it to get what i mean. Android is laggy and IOS is same the old OS. Back to the topic, my lumia 720 oozes quality the moment you hold it in your hands. The windows OS is very smooth and easy to use for beginners. It is clearly geared towards integration. Regardless of the 720 being a dual core and 512mb ram, it is blazing fast. The messaging and telephony capabilities is simple and thats what i like about it. You feel at home. Call quality is the best and the speaker is pretty loud. The Camera captures detailed photos and the low light technology being implemented in these Carl Zeiss Optics is very good. Way better than my dad's galaxy s3 and note 2. I shall await the rumoured nokia windows phablet because from now on, i will stick to the real king which is nokia. Cheers to all other fellow 720 users and upcoming ones! :)
    Had used Xperia S as well (White Colored, stock ROM), the camera of that phone was very good and the display made it even better :), but the OS ruins the complete experience :(, am also not a fan of phones with limited storage space. I do understand that 32 GB should be enough for most of us, sadly I do not fall in the 'most of us' category.

    The lack of a scrollbar for fast forwarding through media is very strange, its universally used in media apps now.
    You can jump in videos by tapping anywhere on the seekbar, it'll take you there. Does not work for Music though.
