i am a new user of the lumia 920. this phone has been over-exaggerated by microsoft. at first glance, it looks like an amazing phone and os; however, it is definitely a dudd after a few days. problems: 1. users are not allowed to select various colors for different icons. instead, users are forced to select one. this hampers the beauty of differentiating icons and thus causes a very bland and boring interface. 2. users with multiple email accounts, like myself (various emails for work, personal, and internet purchases), cannot consolidate all accounts into one icon. instead, the os forces upon users to have multiple icons on the welcome interface or multiple app on the listing feature. microsoft has been great success with the 'outlook' program for decades. why not include an 'outlook'-type interface for mobile emailing? the new name of this outlook program should be 'mobile outlook' or 'outlook mobile' etc. another feature which would enhance this phone is to have 'live tile' for this mobile outlook. 3. limited corporate mobile apps at the windows store compared to apple and android. many microsoft store corporate apps - like walgreens - are useless. these apps are gimmicks which forwards the users to their website. this drives up bandwidth usage! microsoft should not approve such apps. we need apps for financial institutions like american express or citibank, brokerage firms, starbucks, dunkin donuts, walmart, costco, sams club, etc! 4. the sound interface is poorly programmed.all sounds are interconnected and could not be differentiated based on headphone, incoming calls, text message, music, etc. 5. email sync and basic features. it is odd one email address would allow a user to add their name or select push mail while others do not have that option at all. furthermore, it becomes obsolete as users, like myself, have 2 gmail or hotmail accounts. you could add your name to one but not to the other. 6. copy, cut, and paste features. there are none! this is the most important feature for users. 7. phone call interface is ridicously and poorly programmed. why would i want to see the call history as the main menu after selecting the phone icon? i want to see the actual numeric keypad to dial a number. 8. live tiles. this feature is definitely useless as it doesn't automatically update. users would have to enter the program before the live tile updates. 9. main lock screen. i would like to be able to have my name, address, or contact information on the lock screen. 10. background color. it's just boring! there's millions of colors out there. users are forced to either have a black or white background. just boring! 11. inability to view png image files 12. there's no facial recognition app. this would enhance security...especially if you want users to add their credit card profiles in microsoft wallet. 2step verification is best. 13. central notification features nonexistent. 14. updates to apps lacking. users must enter windows store to see if updates are available. 15. date. users should have the option of having the date shown on top of the screen. 16. skype? it's not comparable to google voice. google voice is free. skype...users must pay 17. sharepoint. this app is useless. users can't connect as it continuously says 'something went wrong. please check your internet connection or try again later.' internet is available via wifi or lte. so that's odd! 18. calculator. this is useless. it shouldn't be that difficult to program it into a full feature scientific and graphic calculator. this would boost microsoft sales significantly as many high school and college students or even professionals, like myself, rely on such calculators. the screen is obviously a perfect size. the hardware is obviously present to perform complex calculations and devise graphs. 19. video calls. many users have wifi or lte access. why not include a feature that's interconnected as a submenu of the call button next to call history. allow users to make video calls. 20. the calendar feature is just outdated. microsoft should reprogram it to allow users to change the background color like calendar templates offered for microsoft word/excel. users cannot set each agenda on the calenda as a 'blocked colored ' task. the current interface is just boring! users cannot set the calendar to weekly views. only daily or monthly allowed. another feature which should be available is the ability to share the agenda with other users, workers, or friends. simply put it, users need to be able to add a contact to an agenda and send the contact the agenda via email or txt. another feature which is lacking is the ability to offer voice or video-recorded agendas. this would be a huge highlight for microsoft and its users. 21. another feature lacking is a central live clock. clearly, i have more complaints about this phone but i'm already exhausted at #21. i can think of nearly 50 more!!! these are very basic programming features which are lacking!!!!!!!!! Someone should have pity and show you how to use your phone. It definitely does copy and paste and most of the other stuff your complaining about.
LOL! right!?! poor thing... yes pls send nokia your feedback. i have been an iOS user (iPhone 3G,4) for...forever. Apple iOS6 is outdated on such a pretty ( read prissy) little phone. yes the iph 5 is uber light (awesome!) but i would stick with my heavy, ultra-durable Nokia Lumia 920 ANYDAY. why? the (new) Windows Phone 8 OS is fresh making the iOS 6...what's the word....archaic.
Copy/paste is available. sweetie (with 21 reasons and 50 more to be whining about this phone) PLEASE READ what your lil' icons mean.
yes you can't change the color or font of individual tiles but this isn't "build-a-bear" game app.. MS will get there...
i must say, i am still getting used to the email (YES, YOU CAN LINK EMAIL ACCTS..) and text msg interface but still very, very content. This is my 2nd day with my new phone. Very excited about the WIRELESS CHARGING MAT THAT COMES FREE WITH THIS PHONE (ATandT).
BTW, does the iphone 5 have a free wireless mat that comes with it when you pay an arm&a leg for it??
Thank you Nokia for making a new awesome phone that is affordable. Keep it up...please.
