SD Times Blog: Seven things I hate about my Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8

Reading this post today, I began to think about why Nokia would even need a backup. I know lots of people with Windows phones, and then I remembered that the reason I bought mine was not for Live tiles and early adoption of the new paradigm. I bought it because the guy in the AT&T store said it was a hundred bucks cheaper than either the iPhone or an Android phone. Now, I know a lot of people with Windows phones, and most of them have big-time complaints. I thought about it some more, and I realized that I, too, have my gripes with the device. Here are my beefs:

1. Calendar
I know it’s not a desktop, but why can’t my month view be enlarged so I can actually read the events I’ve entered into certain dates, without having to tap twice to get the information? Seems small, but if you use the phone as your main calendar, you’d be surprised how many times a day you’re in that app.

2. Bing
It launches when it feels like it, but I can’t seem to locate it to launch it when I feel like it! This should be easily accessible from a Live tile on the main display.

3. The accidental unpinning or moving or resizing tiles
It’s too sensitive. Give me another choice besides “normal” and  “high.” Hold your finger on a Live tile for a split-second too long (however long THAT is!), and you’re either moving it, shrinking or growing it, or sending that feature back to some menu someplace, without even realizing it.
