Trialling a Nokia Lumia 820–Day 5

By Sami Mughal

As if often the case with many a thing, I am getting more and more used to this Windows Phone 8 operated device. Today I discovered one of the quirks of this phone which put a smile on my face. The messaging app is normally indicated by the following symbol:

However, this symbol changed to a :-O when I had more than 4 unread messages. Other online images also show it showing a simple ‘!’ character in there as well.

I am also impressed so far with the battery life. Since the phone is fairly simple in its running, or so it feels, it probably loads the device much less.

I also learnt how to take screen shots on this device. To do so, press the WINDOWS key and the Power Key together. Screenshots are saved in the gallery app.

Talking of which, the Camera allows you some ‘LENSES’ which are add-ons to the camera app. Some of the ones available are smart-shoot, which allows you to take a burst of photos and merge them together to get the best result, Nokia City, which is a great tourism app, much like Layar on Android, and Panorama. The camera itself is not very good, which has meant that I have not been very keen to try these myself.
