ATIV S or Lumia 920

Q: ATIV S or Lumia 920

Before I get to the poll a little history is in order I got my first droid retiring my GS moved to iOS from WinMO few years ago But I think it is the most 920 or ATIV Lumia S regrettable of decisions I made Because despite the fact that I always went for the higher end droid at least of its time e g Desire SGS SGSII Sensation SGSIII to name few I never found a stable solidly performing android phone They all suffered from random crashes reboots sluggishness hang ups and I only install apps - I need nothing more They all have various annoying quirks as well e g SGS ATIV S or Lumia 920 III doesn t want to find any WiFi network at times folders on home screen will randomly open at ATIV S or Lumia 920 their own my older Sensation s screen would stop responding quot in some places quot etc IMHO almost all droids I owned had great hardware but a crappy OS Few months ago I got my hands on Lumia and used it along side my Sensation SGS III for months and my views about WP totally changed It easily outperforms all those multi-core droids with its dated single core SoC being absolutely rock solid and very easy to use UI unlike androids copycat of iOS It is time again to jump ship only thing to decide is should I get ATIV S or Lumia though I m tilting toward the later due to better support upgrade cycle of Nokia compared to Samsung However SuperAMOLED display of ATIV S will be more battery friendly and it also have expansion slot ATIV S comparison Lumia specs Specs of HTC X amp Accord rumored Lumia along side Samsung ATIV S So what you guys would pick nbsp

Preferred Solution: ATIV S or Lumia 920

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: ATIV S or Lumia 920

I'm firmly set on the Lumia 920 right now. I've always had a thing for Nokia handsets, and until Android hit the scene I only ever owned them. Plus, I don't think I'll miss the lack of storage expansion (my SGS3 has 16GB now and I'm only using 1GB of it!), and I think Nokia will be quicker and more supportive with its own apps than Samsung will be.

I want to mount this in the cubical of a roll top desk but with the pedestal it's about 1" to tall. The pedestal can't be removed says Samsung. I realize there are liability issues on their side. There are inserts the screws the wall mount will go in but the joint that connects the pedestal is in the way. I'm thinking of cutting this joint off but don't want to damage the computer. Has anyone else removed this for a wall mount?

Can the WiFi adapter in the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus be upgraded from N to AC? The current adapter is the Intel Wireless-N 7260AN. Intel now makes an AC version of the 7260, but the web is full of complaints from people who installed it and couldn't get their laptops to recognize it.

Hello,

im trying to "remove everything and reinstall windows" via the settings

A:Adjust Brightness on my Samsung ATIV One AIO Desktop

I wonder if this from Chapter 3 might have possibilities:========================================You can switch the picture mode to your preferred viewingpleasure, such as optimizing the display for movies or electronicbooks.On the desktop, right-click an empty area and click All apps >Settings > Display > Picture Tones.?? Standard: Standard picture mode.?? Movie: Switch to this mode when the ambient lighting is darkor when watching movies.?? Low-contrast scene: This will make a darker scene brighter fordistinction.?? Sharp: This will make the picture clear and sharp.?? Read: Suitable for reading electronic books.?? No effect: This is the default picture mode.========================================I know it sounds odd but maybe "Movie mode" might help.I also notice that early on in the manual it shows the operator at a fair angle above the screen. This is also likely to have a dimming effect.All seems a tad odd when all it needs is a simple brightness control but perhaps "that's progress". Humans are not digital LOL. Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

my computers usb ports work just fine in lubuntu however only the usb 3.0 port seems to work on windows seven. i installed samsung's software update program, which installed some basic drivers for me, and then afterward had to manually hunt down drivers for the display driver, and some other various stuff. now im quite sure that i dont have the drivers for the usb ports. two of them just say "generic usb ports" or something, with the VID of 8087 0024 or something. it doesnt detect any devices with no drivers, but thats because i ran slimdrivers, which found a couple of drivers that samsung wasnt nice enough to provide... lesson learned about samsung..... how do i get the usb driver for this laptop because i havnt been able to figure it out.

A:usb ports wont work with windows 7 on samsung np470r5e ativ book 4 i5

Did you reinstall Windows or something? How did you loose the drivers?

I'm not sure what you mean by "hunt down" drivers. They should all be here: Samsung NP470R5E ATIV.

Be sure to install the chipset drivers for USB. USB-3 has it's own drivers.

I have two Lumia's: 925 and 625.
Since we try to have as less radiation as possible (if possible at all, but I don't want to go into that discussion) around the house we switch our phones to airplane mode as much as possible. Off course also at nights.
Now, I discovered with a special measuring device, which is able to measure all kinds off radiation) that these lumia's frequently send a signal even when it is on airplane mode (with Wifi, NFC, BT off). The strangest thing is even that this is NOT occurring when the phone is normally on, but only when the lock-screen is active. (with or without Glance where applicable)
I notice a peek in send-signal every 5 seconds. I tried playing around with several settings but the devices keep doing this..
Is anybody familiar with this?

Please give the call recording feature on my Lumia 535 by update or application. just please give this important feature. That's just one think is missed in anniversary windows 10 update. I was thought that feature is also going to be include in update but their is not provided that's very worst think. I hope you will try to give this feature in upcoming next update. Just let me know is this feature is coming or not?

A:when the call recording feature is given in lumia update(e.g.lumia 535)?

Welcome to Windows Central! We are a Windows products fan site and not an official Microsoft website so any complaints or ideas you post here will not reach Microsoft.
You have a Lumia 535 so the chances of getting the call recording feature are slim. According to the latest news, only phones that shipped with Windows 10 Mobile preinstalled (so in other words; when you booted up the phone it started with a version of windows 10) will get that feature.
All other phones (those that came with windows 8 or 8.1) will probably not see this feature. It also depends on hardware according to Microsoft.

Earlier today, I noticed that my laptop wasn't automatically adjusting its screen brightness. I often fixed this recurring problem by putting the laptop in a state where the screen would turn off. I decided to quick press the power button to quickly put my laptop into sleep mode. However, the computer's internals were still operating, so I forced the computer to shut down. When I logged back in after I re-booted the computer, I was greeted by a window that said that the hardware settings had been changed and that the computer required a restart, so I obliged. When I rebooted the computer again, I was met with a boot screen that said "Preparing Automatic Repair." My computer loaded to the "Your PC did not start correctly. This can usually be repaired with a restart." I have not been able to load the OS proper. Please help!

A:Cant Decide between Lumia 650 vs Lumia 640 XL

I have the non xl Lumia 640 and the battery is a beast. If you can do without Zeiss optics I'd give you this 3rd option. Also to my knowledge the 650 cannot capture 1080p video cause of the snapdragon 2** series but I think that the performance deference of the 650 and 640(xl) is not noticeable. Edit: The 650 has an oled screen while the 640xl has ips, judging from my phone if you want a screen visible under the sun the 640 is a no go.

Few hickups here and there, but nothing major. A week ago I reset the phone using WDRT, (It went back to 8.1). I updated the device using Upgrade Advisor, then settled on the Release Ring. So far so good, for an entire week. Yesterday, the Store wasnt working, so I though maybe is something at Microsoft. Today (after a simple reboot) the store got back at working, but then the phone start rebooting randomly and wasnt turning on. At all, just loop at booting, after I performed two times, hard reset, the phone sims to get back at normal, except there is something wierd with the screen, if you lock it, it loks, you hear the sound, but the screen doest turn off, since this model has an LCD panel, you can tell easily that is still turned on, its frustraiting me and its draining the battery like crazy. Does anyone know a workaround this, or what is causing it? I appriciate the time and effort. Thank you in advance. You made the error of using WDRT instead a hard reset, (a hard reset install again last downloaded build) so now you must restart the update procedure. Are you sure you got back Denim instead Cyan?
Sounds like phone its tryin updating all core apps to 10 version but they are stuck in Store, check list and control.
Warining: STORe app itself must be updated first
Then check sync settings, byt default all videos are synced to OneDrive, disable it!.
Last workaround is getting back 8.1, using Upgrade Advisor for getting last official Win10, letting phone sync and updating via wifi for at least 2 days, and checking store list and settings.
After thatm you can join again insiders.
REMEMBER: every phone needs a couple of days for completing updating after an hard reset, especially older phones like yours

Hello guys. I would like to ask you people about what is the next windows 10 mobile that we would get to see. We are not going to see any more Lumias and whenever the surface phone arrives, it would prove to be very costly. Which other OEMs are planning to release windows mobiles, particularly in the low and mid range?

A:What's next after Lumia?

the best answer would be to wait and watch what happens in the next few months or early 2017 with announcement of a new hardware or new devices devices from regional OEM. Lumia series has been discontinued by microsoft so we might see a new range of hardware as we are expecting microsoft to hint at surface phone but with fingers crossed.
But microsoft may not feel investing in the hardware again , and becoming a software only like blackberry.

So.im trying to get the fast ring on my old Lumia 830. Well, I used it before Windows 10 came out and got my 640 before I got Windows 10. So my Lumia 830 from AT&T is running Windows 8.1. Whenever I go into the insider app it would say server error, but I remembered that Microsoft doesn't use that. Tried the upgrade advisor and said they were working on it, but that the phone was good for the update. How do I get the Windows 10 on there? Do I just have to wait?

Hello guys. I would like to ask you people about what is the next windows 10 mobile that we would get to see. We are not going to see any more Lumias and whenever the surface phone arrives, it would prove to be very costly.

A:how can i put a new battery into my run down lumia 928

When the description says "non-removable battery" it doesn't mean that you can't replace the battery
It does, however, mean that it won't be as easy as popping off the back cover and remove the battery. This feat will require some work on your end.
There are quite a few guides out there explaining just how to go about doing this. You will require the right tools and a lot of patience!
This is one of the many: http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Nokia+Lu...lacement/40763

First of all, I have never had a Lumia device before, got 930 few days ago. I owned HTC 8s and 8x and this is where the story begins. Those two devices have a built in Beats audio which boosts your sound up so loud your head is going to shake. No matter what headphones you used, sound was just amazing. I used Beats Studio, Detox and Mixr, also Sol Republic V10, regular Nokia headphones and some other in ear headphones. The thing is, while using any of those headphones I can't achieve not even nearly great sound on 930 as I could on 8s/8x. So I was wondering if there are any headphones specifically made for Lumia devices which can boost your sound up, please recommend them here. I'm very satisfied with 930 but sound quality it's really poor on every Lumia, not juss 930.

A:Headphones for Lumia?

Unfortunately I agree with you. The sound quality is so so...you might want to get a DAC/amp device to go along with your existing headphones.

My 625 keeps freezing even after doing several soft resets.
From what I have read everyone says to do a factory reset but no one has actually said if this extreme measure works or not. Im not going to do a factory reset if it does'nt work. This is obviously a very common problem so why hasn't it been sorted with a software update. Oh, the phone is running the new Denim OS

A:Why does my Lumia 625 keep freezing?

There are a lot of reasons and a factory reset may cure them. But a slow Sd card Class 4) or a "bad" SD card or not enough storage space can also be a reason and this can not be solved by a factory reset. Also if you allow a lot off apps in the background can be a reason.
Clear IE history and with storage sense temp filed.
So try to find out which one it is and if all this fails a factory reset may help.

Hi,
Does anyone else have issues using the Spotify app on their Lumia 635? I've had the app for over a year now and it's awful. It's constantly freezing or crashing and at times it claims that it's offline when it's not or that I need to sign up to Premium to use it when I am already a Premium member. In addition it's just generally slow and only works at start up one out of every ten times. Opening the app up to listen to music is a 25 minute process of starting and restarting the app in hopes that it will start to work. No one at Microsoft knows how to approach the issue but friends of mine with other Windows phones don't have this issue so I'm wondering if it's just a 635 thing.

1. If you do not want Windows 10 Mobile, you're out of luck. You'll be looking at old hardware.
2. If you want "a few new apps" beyond what you have on that 650 you're also out of luck. Get an iPhone or Android phone.
3. The 950 IS new as far as you're concerned. Unless you want the Elite X3. You may not care for Continuum, so don't use it. The 950 still has a better camera.
