Windows Phone 8

Hi guys

 

I was wondering what WP8 is like now? I beta tested it just before it was launched on the 8S and it crashed quite a lot. However, it did feel more like an iPhone than an Android device felt.

 

Anyway - my iPhone 5 is acting up (think the speakerphone is faulty as calls to me are breaking up but they can hear me fine). I am interested in a WP8 device.... and don't know if I should go for the Nokia 1020 (64GB) or 1520 (32GB due out soon).

I'd quite like a larger display for when I use my sat nav in the car.

 

I am trying to get out of the whole 'loads of Apps' thing like on the iPhone (spent ???? on apps!) and really want to use it for:

Calls, texts, email, Deezer, Sat Nav - maybe some games, online banking ie with HSBC / Barclays.

 

Is there a website which you can check out what apps are available? Anything I need to know about? Can I store apps on SD yet (1520) or is it just music / photos?

 

Thanks :)

 

James

You can check out the Windows Phone Store @ http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store

 

Unfortunately, we are not able to install apps on the SD cards yet.

There aren't any apps for those banking groups, so you'd have to do it through Internet Explorer.

 

If you plan on using the phone via an authenticated proxy, such as in a work place...then don't bother with a Windows Phone, as that doesn't work.

WPCentral says that both those banks are working on apps.  Not that it helps right now.

Thanks guys :)

 

I sometimes use O2 Wi-Fi / BT WiFi - so I guess the proxy option won't work then...

 

Hmmm
