Lumia 730 should have been equipped with a camera button as it is being marketed as a selfie camera phone.

I seem to have a different experience on the surface pro 1, for starters I had the modern start screen by default and had to follow your trick to get the start menu, rather than the other way around. I also have no issues with the onscreen keyboard popping up automatically when my keyboard is folded back. I also uploaded a photo to an email on a modern app yesterday, ill have to check it worked but im pretty sure it did.

Ever since the Google data mining scandal ive used IE and Firefox. IE is annoying though because you forget how many adverts there are on the web these days

Seems faster..no seriously!
No resuming shizzle more..but im testing it! Ow man! This would make me so happy..at leats a little bit more

Honestly I feel there is no more point in Microsoft pursuing the consumer mobile market so vigorously. Just keep enterprise satisfied and pay token attention to consumer. But stop pouring billions into R&D for phone & tablet stuff.

Crisp colors - LCD
Deep blacks, great contrast colors - AMOLED

Not sure if that helps lol, it really all depends man. I heard HTC's super LCD 3 screen was one of the best in the business.

Also keep in mind plus the screen technology, nokias clearblack polarizer can also make any screen look so much better

My XP hard drive is intact, somewhere. Do I feel like upgrading, nope 600 picture elements a handicap so far. It will be rectified along the way given Nokia 520 will be supported!

I just really want this phone on Verizon from my Lumia 928... Its perfect and I'm loving the orange, literally all the specs I need..

The problem with this now is because its so focused on mouse and keyboard a majority of feedback will be based on that. The problem will now be an un optimized touch experience because that's basically the last thing on their minds now. This entails UI language, how to approach this problem; can't swipe from top and bottom for app commands anymore, and some have the app bars on the bottom like mail which looks weird on the desktop. All those universal apps look weird. Not only do you have this juxtaposition of UI experiences, now irs up to devs on hoe to approach. Right now mouse and keyboard are a majority so why bother making touch centric interfaces and spending resources on that when everyone can just mouse and keyboard again.

Instead of hoping that someone from Microsoft is reading your post here, just give them this feedback directly - this is a primary purpose of this preview.

Pyramid,

You aren't the only one.  I'm stuck on 2.6.186.0.  Been trying for weeks now to update.  Downloads fine, but errors out about 3/4ths thru the install.  GIves me one of two error codes: 80073cf6 or 80073cf9.  Talked to support for a long time two days ago and they are stumped as well.

I have 920 on AT&T running the 8.1 Update and Cyan.

Do you happen to have the old grandfathered Zune/Xbox Music Pass that gives you 10 credits per month?  I have that and I'm wondering if it has something to do with that.

Thanks,

Kip

I commented many times at wpcentral about www.1shopmobile.com , but many seem to forget, they should post article about their prices, i bought my lumia 1020 from them unlocked for $380 USD at the time,they don't have 1020 in stock anymore, but they have other models and guess what, they have unlocked 830 for $409, oh u can also get the lumia 1520 unlocked for $435 too, just saying again!..

Eleventh update and still moving the scrubber gives the popping sound. No media player in Windows Phone Store make such sound on the same f'ink device.

These updates are just for eyewash. This is the same shitty experience we are getting ever since they decided to dump the Zune. My HTC surround running 7.5 can still run better music for 7-8 hours with premium experience when compared to this shit, running on better lumia hardware!

Redoing from scratch and calling it new <- this kind of lamest strategy is not helping Microsoft and they just look (more) stupid.

I installed it on a second partition on my laptop. During the install it asked where to get my settings from and listed my 8.1 desktop so I picked that. Nicely it gave me the Start Page. I never even saw it show the menu option.

i can point you to something better,

Installed it yesterday on my PC in dual boot configuration. I must say that top bar on Moder apps is pretty annoying currently, killing the overall visual appearance. I hope MS will find a way to neutralize it somehow or make it less prominent. Between the taskbar and the title bar the app doesn't feel at all Modern or pretty. But, as stated before, this is just a TP, and there will be improvements. :)

All indications are that this is going to be ~$400 from the carriers at launch. It's a grossly overpriced phone, sorry.

Looks like they just pulled the work force off from this project. A few update to calm ppl down an then, back to screwing them over again with an app that still has huge performance and usability issues.

You... ARE aware that this is being sold 3rd party, right?

This is like looking at Ebay at the X-Box One the day after launch and they were all sold out, seeing upcharged X-Boxes for 800 dollars, and blaming Microsoft.

It may look like a $450 phone, but the spec sheet says it's a $300 phone. And that's being generous due to the nice camera and Qi. 

I did some extensive searching and found a great app called MusicConnect which can do this. It is $0.99, but you get the full app for free if you are okay with ads. It's not perfect, but it will do for most of us.
