It has been over a month since I purchased the Nokia Lumia 730 from the Mobility Arena Shop. The phone is a really good device but I’ve not been able to enjoy it completely ’cause it lacks one important feature.
An EDGE/3G mobile data selection toggle is missing. You can’t force your phone to stay connected to the 3G network only. If you live in an area without WiFi or really strong 3G service, I suggest you wait a while for Microsoft to come to their senses and introduce this feature.
Other things I don’t like about the Nokia Lumia 730 Dual SIM but can live with are
- No USB storage mode for Mac OS X: You can’t drag and drop files into phone’s SD card as is possible on Windows OS.
- I don’t know if it’s a bug in the developer’s preview I’m running on the device but I sometimes feel like games on the SD card lag a bit more than they did on the android platform.
- You can’t charge the device switched off: As long as the phone is connected to a power source, it auto powers on.
- No DialPad contact search: just like on Blackberry 10 OS, the dial pad cannot be used to search through your contacts for calls. You have to go through the contacts section to dial out.
I really hope they fix this EDGE/3G toggle issue soon as the lack of it has me looking at Android once more 🙁
