The other models had their own thread so I thought I would kick one off for the 2010.

So far only used on Optus Australia with blistering 4G speads in Melbourne city, and the usual 3G elsewhere.

Camera is the only reason I bought this (replacing Nokia N8, which was limited to only 1 exchange account).
Additional apps installed, IMDb, Lync 2010, NFL Gamepass, Nokia Panorama. Looking for a DLNA Client.

Nokia has one in the marketplace called "Play To' or something along that lines. Check the Nokia's marketplace under the Windows Store for that DLNA client.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Pros :
• Camera
• Downloadable maps
• Teething provides a very capable WiFi access point
• Clear and easy to see screen, even in sunny conditions

Cons:
• Bulky and difficult to hold
• Cannot power off when charging
• Hard to hear caller in voice calls

Disappointments:
• No ActiveSync SMSSync
• Name completion not implemented in phone dialler (a feature of the N8 I liked)

freitasm: Play To is a DLNA Server actually.


Play To does not appear to operate as a DLNA Server, it appears to want to try and create a point-to-point relationship with renderers, which it was unable to do with Win8 PC. I've since uninstalled it.

Yes, sorry, should have explained better. But what I really meant is that it's no client at all.

I had a Samsung S4 here from Telecom to trial their 4G network before launch. What a terrible screen , completely unreadable under the sun. Get the Nokia 1020 out of the pocket and you can read it clearly like inside a room.

It's no different than a Samsung S4 . The HTC one I have here is longer than the Nokiua Lumia 1020, but a couple of milimetres narrower, so again no big deal compared to other large handsets.

The can't power off when charging is something I don't like, and I complained about this since Windows Phone 7.

No problems here with in call volume and it supports HD voice on Vodafone.

No Windows Phone has SMSSync... Shame really.

• Bulky and difficult to hold

The rounded edges and very wide proportions make it tricky for my pudgy fingers, but as I've never owned such a large phone since 1994 I don't have anything to compare to.

Are you using a Telecom handset on VF to test the HD voice or a parallel import?

Something I missed from my list

Like to have:
• Email "Live Tile" like Calendar (or widgets in Android) that show the top three or four emails

Yep. All the currently-offered on-account plans (and the Prepay 4G $19 plan) can access 4G with no surcharge.

"currently offered" that does not bode well for me, but I'll know for sure in 24 hours.

Anecdotally better reception and data stability is two Vodafone dark zones in Auckland.

Appears my historic plan is not eligible for 4G.
