LOL, if Win 8 worked on this phone, I'd certainly buy it:
Windows Phone 7.8 Update
Microsoft is starting to rollout theWindows Phone 7.8 for older phones (i.e. Windows Phone 7 phones), change log is below:
Here are a couple ways you can force the update if the Zune software doesn't prompt you for the update:
Yup! updated today by using the force method, the new startscreen is really nice
Just ordered the Lumia 822 from VZW. Is there a list of must have apps around here?
add me to the list. Samsung Focus Flash. Soon will be updating to a WP8 phone but not sure which one for now.
I'm not on the list :O
I think I'll put a list of people's favourite apps in the OP, starting with my own until I get some suggestions, but you can take a look at the Windows Phone app store at the top apps to see what's popular http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store
You are both now added, welcome!
noticed a bug on my Lumia 900 (i forced the WP7.8 update)
sometimes under certain conditions when I try to go back to start screen, the tiles don't appear until I restart my phone.
Does it show anything on the screen? Sometimes on my 920 when I close out of an app and go back to the Star screen it will say "loading" and have those little loading dots animating, then it will load after a few seconds.
My Start screen definitely doesn't look as clean yours lol. Have you used Data Sense at all? I really wish Rogers would support it, and Visual Voicemail.
Data Sense is nice.I have it setup per my plan with Verizon, but keep data disabled through Verizon when I am at home.
used "seven eighter" to get 7.8 on a friends trophy, and titan, as well as my own trophy worked perfectly!
Count me in... HTC 8X here, brougth 150$ (roughly) new, original package, waranty till 2015... No subscription.
My second windows phone (well i got a SPV 100 before XD ) and maybe the one who will make me drop my Android phones (but not my Nexus 7 XD )
Now I got a 928, let me say as I type from it now its amazing. I love the WP UI and my old trophy just didn't do that well this thing is just good not to mention the camera is pretty much the best out there at the moment!
Hey, nice thread. I have had a Lumia 920 for just over a month now. Absolutely loving it
funny things is
1. WP8 make all phone on the same feets (hardware wise) HTC 8x has same perf as a 920/928
2. while on Android benchies are kinda usefull (kinda) on WP8 they are funny my 8X is faster than any other 8X and 10% above a 920/925/928 so its pretty innacurate
ok ok its not a : "htc is better than nokia: lets start a war!" i love both brand.
except the fact that Nokia's price are higher than HTC's one IE: if i want a 920 its 586chf for a 8X its 486chf, ok i know it has 16gb more and LTE support for the 920 but HSDPA+ is enough and also 8mPix versus 8.7mPix is pointless, oh i almost forgot 0.2" more for the screen but same resolution, front cam 2mPix versus 1.2mPix is also pointless (but in that case its HTC who has the upperhand) 200mAh for the 920 well it doesnt change much WP8 phones does well, even with 1800mAh (roughly 2d to 2d 12h regular use) also 162g versus 130g.
i took it 2nd hand so basically i paid 170chf (well not really 2nd hand since its still new) a 2nd hand Nokia 920 would cost me 399chf at lower price.
well if it come to the OS feeling: its not complete as iOs or Android but the experience is great, photo quality, sound, UI smoothness.
also 928 camera isnt the best but a reall good one indeed (928 is jut a Verizon 920 with a slightly different shap) but the point is : it has a real flash, wich is a reall nice feature.
Congrats man! It's definitely an upgrade compared to the Trophy.
The specs might not be all that different for the high-end phones but the designs are what set each apart (and a few other specific features). Which is fine really as WP doesn't need a quad core CPU and 2GB of RAM to run smoothly.
Just got a 521 and I was curious as to how secure a windows 8 phone is.
Far more secure then Android. Probably on the same level as iPhones.
really? compare to 4.1.2 or 4.2.2 or 1.5
Here's a link to the white paper on it http://www.windowsphone.com/en-ca/business/security
Nokia Lumia 1020
Reviews for the Nokia Lumia 1020 are out!! Damn I want that camera.
This is long overdue considering the GDR2 update has been rolling out for a while now,but if you have a Nokia Windows Phone and haven't gotten the GDR2 "Amber" update yet, here is a good site to check and see when it will be released on your carrier.
Finally upgraded from Windows Phone 7 to Windows Phone 8 and a Lumia 920. I'm absolutely loving this phone. It's beautiful, elegant, snappy, has a good amount of memory, and as I've already inadvertently proved twice, virtually indestructible! And Windows 8 platform works MUCH better on here than a desktop!
