Today, I got the notification for Nokia’s Amber update on my Lumia 720. I mentioned it in the Mobility Windows Phone Room and shortly after that another member of the Room announced that he had gotten his notification too. I completed my update tonight without any issues and can confirm that Amber brings, among others, the following to the Lumia 720:
1. Glance Screen
2. Ability to choose an alternative app for the camera button to launch
3. Improvements to the built-in camera app
4. FM radio
5. Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth SMART)
6. Call + SMS filter
7. Lumia Colour Profile
8. Touch Sensitivity
9. Storage Check and faster map updates
The ‘double tap to wake up the phone’ feature is not supported on Lumia 720.
If you own a Nokia Lumia 720 and reside in Nigeria and have not gotten your Amber update yet, the good news is that you can expect it any time from now. If you have updated, do share your experience and what you think of the new features.
