Nokia Amber Update Rolling Out


Recommended Posts

Looks like Nokia has started rolling out the Amber Update. I just installed it on my Verizon 928. The availability is listed here. Seems to be only a few handsets so far.


The glance screen seems useful as does the double tap to unlock. Remains to be seen what the effect on battery life is. I'm just installing the new photo/video apps now so can't comment on them.


The update seems problem free so far.

I have had it on my 1020 since I got it and I think there are some bug fixes that may have been fixed too.  I do have a weird issue though that others can try and tell me if they have.  If I stream a podcast from the native app and then take a call on Bluetooth the podcast continues to play.  Now this was only experienced in a Honda Odyssey 2013 model.  Let me know if anyone else has this issue.

Sadly this update is nowhere in site for the developers who got Lumia 920's at the //Build/ conference in 2013.


You would think Nokia and Microsoft would want to make sure us Developers are seeded first with these updates..


A real Shame!

      My review went live today. I'm starting this forum post for Q&A, followup and other discussion.  Please let me know if you have any questions about the device.
      Amazing display that is well suited for multiple content types Great speakers that truly set the device apart LTE is built right in Overal design  
      It could be lighter, but only since the iPad Air started shipping is weight a thing with larger tablets The screen's backlight bleed can be annoying to some, apparently some of these devices have it better or worse than others Windows RT - I believe the platform won't gain enough traction and a Bay Trail Atom running full x86 Windows would have helped this product succeed  
      I will continue testing the device and will update the forums with thoughts as I go along.

      If you have been listening to SurfaceGeeks or the Agnostic Tech Podcast, you know I am back on Windows Phone fulltime. It was the Lumia 635 (which I got with an Xbox Music Pass for $99) that reminded me how much I love the OS.
      Since getting the Lumia 635 in my hands, I have tried the Lumia 830 and the HTC One M8. Oddly enough, I think my favorite is still the Lumia 635. It is an unbelievable value at the $30-50 price points it can be found for now.
      The HTC One M8 is wicked fast, and has the BoomSound speakers we all hear about. The speakers are great, but not worth the hype. (Maybe I feel this way as the Moto G (2014) and Nexus 6 are my two favorite Android devices and they both have dual front firing speakers?). The HTC One M8 camera is a sad little thing. It can perform well under ideal situations: indoors with the right lighting, and outdoors without too much lighting. The battery life is amazing, and the audio output via Bluetooth and the headphone jack is very solid. It is by far the fastest Windows Phone I have ever used. The touch screen is WAY too sensitive IMO. Even with a glass screen protector, I couldn't tame the sensitivity. You can sometimes just hover over the screen and touches are acknowledged. It can causes all sorts of typing and navigating havoc. In general, it is a very solid device.
      The Lumia 830 rubbed me the wrong way. The back was super flimsy and it felt cheap. Wireless charging didn't always work. It also didn't feel much faster than the 512MB Snapdragon 400 phones like the Lumia 635. I don't have much more to say as I only kept it a few days.
      The Lumia 635 just feels great in the hand. The back comes off easily, but doesn't feel mushy when on the device. The screen is solid, although not having an oleophobic coating is an annoyance. Microsoft (Nokia) uses "Easy to clean" under their products specifications to tell us if a device has an oleophobic coating or not. For a 512MB RAM device, it isn't THAT bad. Although I will see the dreaded "Resuming..." screen way more than I'd prefer. (It is virtually never seen on the HTC One M8 with it's 2GB RAM.)
      I've been reading and watching videos about the newly announced 640 XL. I think I am in love. It is a 635 on steroids. Same processor, but 1GB RAM, 5.7" IPS ClearBlack "East to clean" (oleophobic coated) screen that hands-on videos make look very solid. It has a 13MP camera with Zeiss Optics that is likely better than the HTC One M8 and a great front facing 5MP shooter for Skype/selfies. Running the latest and greatest Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 software is appealing as it adds an improved settings menu, ability to pin settings to the home screen and Bluetooth keyboard support. I also feel the device will be one of the closest I can get to the Nexus 6. (I can't find a 1520.3 variant in black too easily and don't really want a device that old, and it is a beastly sized device.)
      So stay tuned to SurfaceGeeks and the Agnostic Tech Podcast to hear when I can get the 640 XL LTE variant here in the states, and if it ends up being the right device for me. It feels like fall is a longtime away and I am enjoying being back on the platform now, hence why I don't just wait for the new flagship(s).

      I am currently waiting on my new Lumia 920 to arrive in the mail from AT&T.
      As exciting as that is, let me present my question.
      I've had an HTC Evo 4g (PC36100) for the past two years, and one thing I've loved about it is the ability to hook it up to my tv via HDMI.
      I know that the 920 has DLNA instead of HDMI, and I am actually considering buying a new tv for christmas.
      Which brings me to the topic of my rant [slash] my question:
      Why is it so hard to find a tv (or, preferably, a projector - I know, I'm weird) that is DLNA-certified?
      Retailers and manufacturers just don't list "DLNA-certified" as a feature of their products! WHYYYYYYYYY?!
      Is there some date that I'm not aware has passed, after which all tvs (and projectors?) are required to be DLNA-certified?
      Please, help me find a new tv or projector that I can connect my 920 to, so I can get my NetFlix on.
