But, it feels faster for now, will keep testing as it installs more apps.

Then we might get completely new devices this Fall.

801 is a lot more power efficient too.

Size matters to some. A friend has a 1520 and I was interested because of the specs (930 hadn't been announced yet), but I tried it and it is just too big for me as an everyday phone. 930 appears to be pretty much exactly a 1520 but in a smaller package, so suited me better

I'm still seeing resume screens, but even they feels shorter. It does feels smoother too.

Hope Cyan improves it further, though.

Just finished updating my US based 920. Didn't update to cyan yet, shows I still have Nokia Black. Thought the update was paired with cyan.

Edit: Oh. The update I just got apparently was just an update to the dev preview. Official update to the consumer 8.1 still to come it seems.

Don't think so. Not even sure why we are always chasing more. Right from the off with the ancient lumia 800, windows phone ran smoothly with single core CPUs and we somehow survived. Spec wars are meaningless - it's all about how the device behaves.

I could be wrong, but I think the guy who made the OT put a link regarding the availability of updates on all Lumia phones in there. It's in the "updates" section, iirc.

A few days ago I became upgrade eligible on my Verizon account. I'm seriously considering moving from Android (currently have a Galaxy S3) to a Lumia Icon. Had a couple questions.

Is it a good time to buy? Or is there something better on the horizon?

Is there anyway to backup and save text messages? (Android has spoiled me)

Yeah WP backs up texts



This app from Nokia should let you transfer over your texts that you already have if you want them

As for new hardware on Verizon, apparently the 1525 is coming to them http://www.techtimes.com/articles/99...nd-verizon.htm

If I been running the developer preview, is there any reason why I would want the official Cyan update? Would it be to just get the firmware updates (if any) and then switch back to developer preview?

It would be nice if there was a comparison of features between Android/WP/iOS where one can see which features are present and what's missing. Or a list of advantages WP has over iOS/Android other than the home screen look. It would be nice for me to be able to rattle off a list to my colleagues who are all stuck on their boring iphones.

The developer preview always has you on the latest OS release and you still get the firmware when it's pushed by your carrier.

So, after those few games got delisted and updated for 8.1 I decide download them to test, and also redownload a few games I already had...

And good God, for a moment I though there was something broken with my phone, but then I remembered i'm probably running on generic drivers on 8.1 preview...

At least I hope so, because my phone is not sustaining 60fps not even on the simplest 3D games available like Temple Run 2 and Subway Surfers (heck, Subway Surfers feels like it's not even hitting 30 all that often). And before the preview they did run flawlessly. Now they take forever to load, run noticeably worse and have some lockups all the time.

MS Splosion Man looks so bad it almost feels like it's a joke:

Well, I have good news. Reverted to Lumia Black today with the Software Recovery Tool that Nokia provides: after 8h of stand-by, the phones accuses 99% of battery left! I guess the 620 really didn't like those generic drivers of the preview... quick edit: she does miss the action center, though! Now for the long wait until Cyan arrives =(

You have the Messenger app installed? Don't think message notifications should ever show when you have Messenger installed.
