People keep complaining about the bump at the back, I had no real issues with that, other than it didn't sit on a table too well - unless it had the charging plate on it. My own 1020 a year and a...

Thanks for this information Paul, I have been on the 9860 preview for a while now, and until now the updates have been done automatically. Though from what I here the 9879 update looks wonderfully...

My biggest issue with the latest build was IE freaking out. The loss of half the characters was a tad off putting. Using a work around of changing the default font which works to a point. I use...

I still have the app Nokia Reading. Its a bookstore/news app. Everything else Nokia has been renamed.

I have no issues at all by buying a product with the Microsoft name on it, why on earth should I? The integration of the software, hardware and their services is excellent. Nokia knew how to build...

I am trying to keep a straight face on this one. This coolest of companies - according to a poll in the UK, This company which is among the richest of companies in the world, This overly praised...

Whereas a lot of tech sites still think its cool to be derogatory towards Microsoft without good reason and kiss the toes of Apples deities its sites like Pauls that give a refreshing and honest...

I too had serious issues with Xbox music, it was painfully slow, glacial even. However, once I reset my phone - a 1020 - it really got things going again. The restore of apps etc is a dream....

The folders are pretty nifty. Will definitely shrink my big start screen. The English Cortana is a bit dry, especially its impressions. Being from the UK its good get the £ sign back and temps in...

The ad does make Siri seem rather outdated and a somewhat overly expensive app. Dare I say a bit like the phone itself?

I'm torn between going back to 8.0.. if its possible and waiting for the full 8.1. I have been using the developers preview for what seems like forever. I do hope to see less of the '...Resuming...

I have a wee problem with the voice recognition. Not sure if its because I am Scottish but it wont it recognise the letter 'a', everytime I say it it thinks it's an 'e'. Annoying when it comes to...

When the music hub first came out, it did seem a lot better, there was none of this 'looking for music...' thing. When I out walking sometimes the music app will just stop as there is no internet...

Its a different class of advert from the earliest embarrassing attempts. This one quite clearly points out its not just a tablet for browsing, it can be a vital part of your business. Its power is...

That 1st option sound a bit cumbersome. I delete images from my phone to a) make more room and b) I know they are safely backed up to the OneDrive or before I delete them. There would have to be...

I updated my 1020 last night here in the UK. Everything went fine, it seems a little faster, other than that I can't really tell. Not sure if the battery life has improved, mine is always near a...

I've had Cortana on my 1020 for some time now, but being in the UK I have had to switch it off now and again as my phone just thinks its in the US. I get American based news stories, and the...

I agree with the sentiments, the local scout was very handy and such a cool thing to show to friends when looking for something in middle of a city. It needs to be put on the Cortana main screen...

Your assessment seems rather dated to be honest. DSLRs are very useful, but amazingly bulky. Phones like the 1020 do have the quality. 6 lens elements and OIS and live view. The 38 megapixel lens...

I am still a big fan of the Nokia 1020. Being a keen photographer the camera's abilities are what swung it for me, The add on camera grip makes holding it as a camera and the ability to put it on...

I have installed WP8.1 and had to switch the theme syncing off. Of course I did the picture through the tiles thing, and used the orange theme. All the text on my phone is orange but the...

We always hear of Android fans saying that if the Nokia Lumias ran Android they would buy them in a heartbeat. The S5 confirms my theory its the rather uninspiring look of the Samsung that makes...

The specs are almost irrelevant, its the user experience that matters, it may have a quad core, but if the UI is laggy, the specs don't mean much. Its a wonderful generalisation saying that the...

I do hope the logging out/exit/shutdown/Go Away!! issue is sorted out as well.

Ah you mean a fish supper, though how you would wrap up that in an electronic newspaper from New Jersey would be a bit of a challenge. By the way, I haven't seen newspaper in fish n chip shops...

I reallly love all this intergration, makes me smile when I go to my PC and there is the stuff I was working on, on my phone.

The Bing apps I like, the have a quality feel, though I need...

Residing outside the US I have to use a 3rd party app. Podcast Lounge is wonderful, doesn't do different speeds but it does auto download.

Microsoft really have to get their finger out and...

I am still having problems with Xbox music. It has a habit of listing the album tracks twice and when you click on a track its not always the one you wanted. Occassionaly I will get an error code...

At last!! The playlist is now as easy to edit and add to as it was on the Symbian system old Nokia 5800. Hear or choose a track and add it to whatever playlist you like. Whoohoo! The older...

For me the cost of Apple is the major turn off for me. I will quite happily spend a bit more for a better quality product, everything from shoes to cars and even wallpaper. However when seeing...
