Can someone recommend a good phone book app?
I find it annoying having to go through the People tile everytime to make a call.
For everyone who uses Bluetooth and/or Wifi I recommend a app called "ConnectivityShortcuts".
Really liking WP. It does anything you could want without too much hassle at all.
Things that could be better:
-the batterylife on "smartphones" make me feel like I am on a land line again... and Lumia800 apparently has good batterylife
-more color choices for the tiles, seriously how hard can it be?
-loose the stuipd arrow at the top right of the screen, all it does is makes the screen smaller when scrollind the home screen
Things that are awesome:
+fast, easy and looks nice, it's a huge plus IMO
+perfect build quality on the Lumia line, my 800 feels like it could survive a drop from my balcony
+very, very nice screen, I don't understand people who say it sucks, I have seen 5years old TVs that have worse image quality...
Mainly people complain about the lack of a "high pixel density" resolution a'la iPhone 4/4S and Android phones with qHD/720p screens. Personally I've always seen it as BS myself (I'm typing this from the Droid 3: a phone that was harshly panned due to its screen despite being qHD) and I've maybe been disappointed by it once or twice. That's it.
Of course, individual eyes may vary.
One can't deny that keeping the resolutions consistent is yet another way the end user gets a better experience due to the commonality between each phone running Windows Phone 7.
Now if only Verizon and AT&T would get off their asses and stop blocking Microsoft's attempts to deliver updates to their handsets....that's just classic US carrier levels of evil right there.
Making matters worse is that AT&T is Microsoft's "premier carrier" for windows phone in the US (Lumia 900 is a AT&T exclusive + they have the widest selection of windows phones) and I bet Microsoft's wishing they never gave AT&T that title.
