How would you change Nokia’s Lumia 620?
I somehow managed to scratch the screen while phone was in my purse - I was under impression that you can't scratch screen that easily.
But most of my issues are with software -
- media volume and ringtone volume is the same - which causes problems when listening music loud/quiet - making the ringtone too loud or too quiet
- can't play music from folders, I have big music collection and not being able to play from folders, it's nightmare with id tags and playlists
- setting tab seems too chaotic - hard to find something specific quickly
- coming from android was disappointed about lack of apps, especially free ones
- would like to have more themes and accent colours
1. A harder screen glass. I've broken mine twice already. Never happened with any phones I've owned before.
2. Better battery life.
3. And please keep the screen size as it is, I want a phone that fits in my pocket AND in my hand.
The big thing: 1GB of RAM. I know Windows Phone is getting better about memory usage, but 1GB would futureproof it.
Also, while I'm not irked by the disappearance of the flash by itself, I would've liked to have seen a significantly upgraded camera sensor in return -- something you know can pull off some decent low-light shooting. I have a hunch that we're going to see a lot of blurry nightclub photos from 630 owners.
Better touch screen sensor (it doesn't work pretty well when my fingers are sweating)
Better compass (it is always telling me to calibrate. When it works, it's good, but it doesn't happen everytime that i want it to use)
It could be thiner (but made with a equal resistant material)
it could have 1GB of ram
the battery could definetly be better (something like 1500-1600 mAh would be perfect and would not affect much the size of the phone.
if all of this will be fixed, i'm buying it's sucessor!
A slightly larger battery capacity would have helped a lot too. It's a budget device though, so you can't expect all the bells and whistles
I'm totally confused by their decision to remove the front-facing camera though! I mean, removing the flash is explainable, but this is a cheaper phone that's being marketed to a younger crowd, and if it doesn't have a FFC, it's going to be an extremely tough sell.
1- better battery life
2- a bit more slimmer
3- a nice protective shell. because the default back cover/ shell is not so good that it allows lot of dust particles inside the phone. i saw a waterproof shell (cc 3061) is relesed for 620 lumia, but no one has a clue about it. not at least in India.
i'd like to see a redesigned back cover which will make the phone a bit more slimmer and secure. (i dont think nokia will even care to make one at this point of time!!!)
4- separate volume for ring tone and music. this is a bit annoying.
5- no short cut to silent mode. for that you need to go to settings and then turn off vibration and ringer. seriously, dont know what nokia was thinking while developing a "SMART" phone!!
6- and need continuous bug fixes
Ich hab das lumia 620 nun auch über ein Jahr im täglichen Einsatz, und ich kann nur sagen ich bin schwer begeistert. (ich hatte zuvor ein 920 und fand es furchtbar so einen Klotz mit sich herumtragen zu müssen)
Das (leider) einzige Windows Phone das noch kompakt genug ist um es jeden Tag zu jeder zeit in seiner Hosentasche dabei zu haben.
Was ich inzwischen ändern würde ist:
- einen Tick dünner aber noch immer mit Wechselcover
- ein bissel mehr akku
- mehr cpu Power und Ram.. (wird langsam doch etwas träge vorallem mit WP 8.1)
- lte support (ist in meiner Region Deutschlands besser ausgebaut als UMTS)
Schade das die nachfolger so groß sind.
- upgrade the ram to 1 gb (would see less of the resume screen probably)
- also a bigger battery ( the current one possess a middling battery life, pisses me off sometimes)
- and probably get that water resistant cover (cc-3061) available everywhere!
- firstly it's the RAM. I know it's an entry-level smartphone and I'm not suppose to expect very much, but putting 1GB RAM for the future wouldn't have killed them.
- second would be the applications. Once again, I know Windows Phone is not the major player compared to iOS or Android, but the lack of quality apps more times than not disheartens potential buyers.
I like - Nokia Lumia 620
Small phone (fits in your pocket)
Small screen (you can use with one hand)
Display quality (beautiful colors and you can actually use in daylight)
Design - round edges (just like my old iPhone) and the colorful changeable cases
Camera (Better than my old one)
I like on Windows Phone 8
Live Tiles and Application List (It's just two screens - very easy)
Outlook and Skydrive integration
Fits the applications on horizontal (more than iOS)
Videogame emulators (correct me if I'm wrong, but i don't have this on iOS)
What I dislike - Nokia Lumia 620
Turn off constantly
Wifi don't work properly
What I dislike - Windows Phone 8
Internet Explorer 10 (c'mom Safari or Chrome are better) and Bing
Iphone keyboard and screen sensibility are better
iOS has a mature AppStore
I use OS X, I don't like Windows Phone App for Mac
