Really good phone that I highly recommend. I use it as a work phone and private which works really well. The phone feels solid and a bit heavy but it is probably for the metal frame. In my hands the phone is fine but I do not have big hands. However, it would have been a little bigger than 5, 5, "that would have been difficult. Before this phone I had Microsoft Lumia 550 and it is a day and night divorce in everything between them. However, the synchronization with the ondrive and office in Lumian was well. Got the phone off work in mid / late January 2017. Positively: + large, sharp screen. + bluetooth that works more or less flawlessly and connects to other devices quickly. + Battery life is incredibly good when compared to other phones. I have talked a lot and surfed and used some apps so I can still have lunch at about 20% left. Then I have used the mobile at work and at home. + Automatic light adjustment is fast, could have been a bit faster to respond but nothing is a problem. + The brightness of the screen is really good in sunlight. And in night darkness with the lowest brightness setting, it's no problem to see the screen. + the camera is really fast and good. You can take several pictures immediately after each other. However, the camera's app may need to be set depending on where you are shooting. Because if you do not hold the camera still or the object is still, it may get a little blurred. But if you are aware and can shoot, this is no problem. On the other hand, I miss Nokia and Carl Zeiss mobile cameras, according to me they are still better than today's. + The hardware and operating system are incredibly fast I think. Everything on the phone starts as soon as msn presses any app or icon. + Big plus is the internal storage of 128GB. + Big plus is that the phone is double SIM card. Easy to manually activate and control which of the 4G cards to be used on. + synchronize job exchange / account etc. is quite easy and smooth. There may be some patience. neutral: ~ The keyboard "SwiftKey" does not make any major mistakes, but I do not miss the ability to make more settings and customize the keyboard for me. For example. I do not want the English and Finnish keyboard on the same keyboard. ~ Speaking text works well with small misses sometimes. English works more or less flawlessly. Svenska works but it will be a little comic sometimes. Finnish as well as Swedish. Too bad that Swedish and Finnish are not working offlicen. It will sometimes be a little fun when the program does not notice which language msn speaks, so you have to take it a few times. ~ Autocorrect works much better on this phone than on the Lumia 550. It speaks faster which word comes next but with fewer suggestions in other words. Then you can become crazy about the automatic change of words. ~ WiFi, nothing special to say about it. Works well and has long range depending on router but up to 30 ~ 40 meters depending on condition. negative: - No scheduling of what SIM card should be active or when people want one. - The bottom buttons may stop working sometimes. I have not noticed yet what it's like doing it but some kind of bug arrow it. Since then, the purchase has been 7 times today 2017 May 06. The solution is to turn off and restart. Restart is not enough. Some small things are what you're annoyed at sometimes but nothing that makes you hate the phone or wander it in the wall. I understand why the price is so high, it's a high-end phone. But the phone does not get the highest rating of me anyway but almost.

Had the phone since the beginning of August. I give the phone 7/10. Overall I am satisfied with the phone, but Nokia's lack quality camera. Now I'm not one instagram Geek or so but I want to take good detail photos sometimes and it can be difficult. The price weigh up the disadvantages of all times for the much performance for the price you pay. Positively: + Fast and convenient operating system is updated every now and then. + Synchronization with e-mails and OneDrive works really well and easily. + Really good app for Excel, Word, PowerPoint, OneNote and PDF viewer. + Smooth handling of Bluetooth and WiFi. Have no problem connecting with my Audi. + Automatic light control works really well. Even when you are walking on the street in the dark. + User-friendly, easy to find settings, etc. + Light in weight attributed to the big screen. + Great performance for the money. Guaranteed! + LTE (4G). Wonderful for download. neutral: ~ Okay amount of apps. The most popular is not but I have not so great app needs either. ~ Several ljudvolyms choice. However, the lowest noise level a bit too high. ~ Edge Browser is approved fast. (Some sites take years and days to charge up) ~ The phone needs to be restarted occasionally. Have the habit of doing it anyway 1 time per month. negative: - Bug: Happen to hold the Win key long as you get a half screen at the bottom that can not be open to bigger. Work-around: turn off the screen to the idle screen and wait a little while and you have the big screen again. - Camera: Blurred images in the dark and a DLE noise. Hard to get clarity on the pictures sometimes. The auto-focus is a bit tough and may not always forward focus. The image quality is poorer than my old Lumia 925th - Bug: Some calls can not answer. (Rarely happens) - Sometimes some apps turn off without warning. (Does not happen too often. Is usually to start again). - Bug: Microsoft Edge - some websites using Mobile BankID may malfunction. Pressing the back arrow at the bottom left to go back one step on a website. So, the browser may crash. (Hands type 3 of 10 times). (But after the latest firmware update, it seems more rarely).

+ The camera is clearly superior in comparison to competitors. Clearly the best dark pictures you can take with this camera compared to what competitors cope. There are many ingenious apps for the camera. Plus there are rumors that there will possibly be a version of the app "Cam Pro" which is supposed to be just for lumia 1020 is also coming to 925 and 920. If Nokia / Microsoft that makes it or if there is no other who manage to hack into it somehow. * I do not know. Those apps available for your camera is more than enough I think. I myself am fascinated by the panoramic app from Nokia how good and easy it is for the user. + Clearly better reception is on the Lumia 925 when compared to Samsung S4, iPhone 4 / S, Sony Xperia V / Z with calls. Me and some friends have tried to call and talk to a department store that is known to be shielded and usually you can not talk on the cell phone in there. I managed to talk in more places in the store than my friends and I managed to take me farthest from the entrance in comparison to those others with a call before it broke. Sony Xperia Z, I would classify as 2nd test and split 3rd, Samsung S4 and Sony Xperia V. Iphone 4 was clearly the worst. * An educated guess of me is that iPhone 5 is not any better than 4th. http://www.nyteknik.se/nyheter/it_telekom/mobiltele/article3793400.ece + Battery life is astonished worth good. During that time I have had the Lumia 925: nd so has my laddningsinterval been every other day in the evening. All depends on how much you use and I can say that I have started using my mobile later I switch from Nokia E7 to Lumia 925. Me and a friend did a half shitty comparison between my Lumia 925 and his Samsung S4 and it resulted in his battery ran out before. If I'm going to speak anything about the battery life. + The screen is super sensitive. I was both surprised and delighted when I discovered that I could wear gloves that are easy ~ 2mm thick (slightly more difficult than with thinner) and use the cell phone without having to take me off them. Note that I do not have any special gloves. I've tried 4 different pairs and with all the works. Otherwise, the screen is sharp when it comes to colors and blacks. I have not experienced any problems with the screen so far. + Lumia 925 feels really solid when holding it. It has not plastiga feeling like some other phones may have. APPS + Scanning documents was so much better and easier when I downloaded the app "handy scan". With the app, it is possible to take razor sharp photocopies. Tested to shoot an invoice with a lot of text in various sizes and barcodes, sent to the computer and printed out on the printer. There was not much difference in the papers. Admittedly, it was seen that there was a photocopy of one but the barcodes what in such a condition that they had worked to scan and that the text was not at all difficult to read. You just have to hold your hands still when scanning a document. + Without a doubt, I can guarantee it will not go and get a better map software / GPS. Apple, Google is nowhere near the quality. "Here" services from Nokia is fantastic. "Here Transit" works well in Sweden and Finland. You can let the program find one's position, and then enter a destination and calculates several different ways (train, bus, walking) to get to the destination. "Here Drive +" (GPS) is packed with all necessary features and easy to access while driving. It's easy to zoom in and out on the map and follow one path and that it can download automatically receive traffic even if the route or nearby tafikinformation, it can be set. (I sold my old Garmin GPS for I have no need for it anymore). "Here maps", well I have nothing else to say than that I lack nothing in the service and it works really well. The cell phone will find your position usually within 30 seconds, no matter where you are. Out in the countryside or in the town center. I'm just waiting on that I get home my CR-200 car holder with wireless charging. + Mobile / interface is incredibly fast. I have not been cursed once than to cell phone would have become bogged down or so. + Those Avanza Bank and want to get a smartphone with Avanza app so it is clearly WP8 phone you'll get. For the app to Android is nowhere near as good as that for WP8. + Some great apps to mention besides those mentioned earlier: Swish AccuWeather, Bank ID, Grooveshark Mobile, Instagram BETA, MS Office, we've, runtastic. + After using cell phone for about a half year, I have to say I have not encountered any major problems. A lot of small problems disappeared with the latest system update GDR third Soon the GDR 4 on the road with further more updates. Lumia 925 has honestly not crashed once for me yet. The apps have become more and better. Clearly the right choice of mobile was it! Minus - Overheating; I have managed to almost overheat the phone so that components and batteries can begin to take damage. Overheating is always occurs when the cell phone is charging and using a demanding app in the App as example "Sleep Well" or something bigger game "Dungeon Hunter 4", etc. Overheating is more common with WP8 Amber update, I have found out. But it'll be more organized with the upcoming GDR3 update of the mobile. More ** who have problems with this can go in and comment on: http://windowsphone.uservoice.com/forums/101801-feature-suggestions/suggestions/4417493-resolve-the-firmware-os-bug-that-causes-major-over - Send / Receive MMS - I think Nokia has always been bad at this. Even with this mobile. At first, though all the settings for mobile network was set correctly so I could not send or receive MMS. But this was solved by following the instructions on the following link: http://www.nokia.com/se-sv/support/faq/?action=singleTopic&topic=FA141648 In my case it worked by turning on airplane mode and turn off airplane mode. Vips jumped everything started. (This should not need to be done, I think ..) - Sometimes I have managed to start running the mobile in fikan "I think." Or so I've forgotten to turn off the screen before I've put it in your pocket or that I have come to the button to start screen. This should Nokia improving any by having to press the button twice to start the screen eg - Too bad Microsoft has not had time to implement Bluetooth LE support earlier. But GDR3 coming soon to Europe have support. GDR3 has been released in the U.S. already. With Bluetooth LE so it becomes possible to use eg Polar H7 heart rate chest belt and other Bluetooth Smart devices. - Inge weekly calendar ... It's something I bothers me a lot on. Hope it will be an update on that soon. - The clock disappears in some apps. Which is good because you have to get out to the main menu to see the clock. Hoping for an update where you can set for yourself how you want the clock to appear. - I had wanted to put in more memory in your phone, but you can not. Though it is almost not possible with any new phone today so .. - Too bad Nokia did not manage to squeeze into wireless charging in the phone. But it was instead that I got their protective case with wireless charging in. With a second tank so it can be a smarter and cheaper solution for yourself. Neutral ~ The constant wailing that there are too few apps for windows phone 8 phones. Well, I do not really know if I can really agree with that anymore. So far I have found the light more than 80 apps that I can think of to use or try. It meets my needs easily. Plus the app for Facebook, LinkedIn is really good designed, I believe. ~ Call The sound I have not had any problems and I have a Lumia 925 Black. In summary, I'm very satisfied with the cell phone. Until today, I had the phone in about 2 months and do not regret a second that I got a Lumia 925 instead of a Samsung S4. There are little things that bother me but I'll live. But I am a little worried about overheating .. Since WP8 will be more mature in the future, so I probably will not regret my choice in the future. So far, I would not swap mobile.

I have nothing to complain about with this USB stick. Everything has worked for me for one year. Installed different windows7 installer I do not know how many times and always worked. Saved a lot of information and removed and formatted, I have made more number of times now. All without problems. Quick is in USB 3.0 mode but also in USB 2.0. I submit data for USB 2.0, but for 3.0 I have. What I've managed to get up after repeatedly measured: Reads: ~ 210MB / s Writes: ~ 50MB / s The lid is in very good and it is good with the rubber over the USB memory. So it does not matter if you drop it on the floor or so, has so far only been bounced around and not broken.

Quite okay usb stick I think. But my Corsair Flash Voyager GT 3.0 32GB is a lot better than this on all counts. Positive is that it is alright for them fast money it spends. I could not get up any major high speeds in any direction with this USB stick. Laptop 2005 USB 2.0: Read speed: ~ 30MB / s Write speed: ~ 14MB / s Laptop 2010 USB 3.0: Read speed: ~ 60MB / s Write speed: ~ 18MB / s Laptop 2010 USB 2.0: Read speed: ~ 34MB / s Write speed: ~ 15MB / S Personally I think it is barely any difference in USB 2.0 and PDO 3.0 when it comes to this USB stick. The cover for the usb stick sitting on well and does not peel off easily. Quick and easy installation of the default drivers windows 7 and windows vista managed to find himself automatically. ! NOTE: You can not install an executable windows installer on this USB flash drive that I had hoped for. I do not really know why. Failed to install with either Microsoft's own software or a third-party. I may well find that the USB memory function is acceptable but not more than that.

Microsoft Windows 8.1 Swe (64-bit OEM)
3.2
(21)
7 years ago*
Is self now half owner of Win 8.1 and both me and my boyfriend think in general it's unnecessarily complicated to navigate around. User has lost almost everything what is called control of the computer. Win 8 carries even greater things in the background that you do not have any idea. The control of turning off programs "Apps" is trickier. It is far from old hardware or software works on win8. Example: Partner has one about 6 years old wireless Microsoft mouse that she had to his old laptop. Win 8 can not install correct drivers for your wireless mouse without running on standard HID drivers that barely works for the wireless Microsoft mouse. 3D / CAD software: Google Sketchup works inspire further in Win 8 or 8.1. Just a lot of trouble in the form of that nothing happens if you try to kick start the program. AutoDesk AutoCad - be sure that it works than in a sensible way than the AutoCad 2013 worked already for Win 8. It's faster and smoother in Win 7 so far. Altium Designer 13 or 14 is not yet effective for Win 8. It is claimed officially that AD14 has support for Win 8. According to me and more others who have tested it is pure bullshit. Does not work, period. Since the hardware of these programs as a 3d-space ball from eg 3Dconnexion is difficult to obtain and operate in windows 8 together with any 3D CAD program. Game: There are not many of the older PC games that work for Win 8. I have then not successfully initiate many do not. More, I was walking to the Win 7. Dem newest big games work behjälpligt to Win 8. But the gaming experience and performance is nowhere near it on Win 7. Safety: There is not really much better than it was in Win 7. It's all about how you work and how you surf the web. Are you a bit more paranoid of itself so you can install any anti-virus programs that raise safety. The so-called smart screen is pure crap. One should not go to the website at any time (most such sites are alternatively harmful or something like Microsoft do not think you should visit). You may not install anything unless the developer of the software is whitelisted by Microsoft. Most things you do on your Win 8 recorded in servers at Microsoft. Though this function to turn off, which I recommend doing, and also cut down on the UAC from the recommended level if you want to avoid all nag-screens about "Do you really want to run this program, blabla ...". Win 8 Vs. Win 8.1: The difference between the Win 8 or Win 8.1 is not extremely large. What is the difference is that it has appeared "kind of a start button" to your desktop. Fast, press it, you get up Metro start screen instead of a boot menu. The need to have touch-screen and be able to all keyboard shortcuts, it has been reduced to. Advanced settings for windows has become a little more visible in win 8.1 than in win 8 where they barely even had to be. Win 8.1 is slower than Win 8. So the performance of your computer may feel like it got a little older or worse with Win 8.1 than with Win 8. In summary: I or my partner is not exactly impressed by Windows 8. Rather disappointed that usability is more or less removed. However, the system works really well for mobiles that to my Nokia Lumia 925 with WP8. Me and my partner are using computers in a very different way. His partner is more of the users who use out of facebook, internet, music, video, chat, but attributed it so she is not really impressed with win 8. Rather annoyed by the user interface. I'm a little more advanced user, then I use the programming software, electronics development (NI Labview, PSPICE, etc.) and to and from the CAD software SolidWorks, AutoCAD, AD13/14. And that I need to connect the PC with various development boards for electronics. And it is a bastard, if drivers do not work in Windows. Luckily works the majority of the drivers for Win 7 today but not for Win 8. There are not many development cards I have received and work in Win 8 yet. I recommend anyone who really wants to continue running Windows 8 to upgrade to windows 8.1. For things are getting significantly much better but still not better than with windows 7. My guess of satisfaction among different users of Win 8: Previously thought of Win2k, Win XP SP1> = and actual users of the operating system, games, programming, 3D cadda photoshop: 2 ~ 3/10. Run Win 7 now and playing games, programming, using 3D programs: 2 ~ 3/10. Loved Win ME: 7 ~ 8/10. Loved Win Vista: 8 ~ 10/10. Drove Win2k, Win XP, Win 7, but used the computer most just chatting, community / facebook, MSN / Skype, surf the net, maybe watch some movies and listen to music: 7 ~ 9/10. Touch screen: 7 ~ 8/10. Mouse & Keyboard: 1 ~ 3/10. If you do not care about what the computer is doing in the background, or care about your privacy and security: 9 ~ 10/10. You who instead care about what the computer is doing in the background, and care for your own privacy and security: 0, ~ 1/10. The rating of Win 8 is a combination of middle and her partner ratings in principle. Though both provide around 2 ~ 3rd So it became two as overall scores.

I was happy with my E7 in them about 3 years I had, before I bought the Lumia 925 2 months ago. Ideas range I did not have much to complain about. There was what I needed besides some apps that Avanza Bank tex The camera is pretty good when compared to today's mobiles. But was clearly much better than others from the same production year. The performance was a bit so-so between ate. There were better versions of competitors. But having a qwerty keyboard made all the difference. Even today when I use my lumia 925 I miss qwerty keyboard sometimes. Now before I switch to the Lumia 925 for about 2 months ago it started flapping usb connector to be a bit too much. Difficult and charge the cell phone sometimes. Unfortunately, it is a known hardware design bugs precisely E7 grade. (It is possible to repair if you want).

Overall a really good wireless mouse for your laptop. :) + Good quality feel provided by the soft grip rubber on the sides and generally hard heavy construction. + Occasionally heavy. + / - Storage for USB receiver under the battery cover when traveling / shame that you have to have a special bluetooth adapter for the mouse. Does not work with the built in bluetooth device in your computer. + Lock that protects the "laser eye". + / - It is wider than my other Logitech MX555b which is good but it could be about the same. I have pretty big hands so I can easily feel that the mouse is a bit small. Fixed Anywhere MX is more ergonomic than MX555b I've noticed. I have less pain in my wrist. + Good precision in movement. + Mid wheel feels to be of high quality. And it rolls well.

For & disadvantages: + Battery life + Scroll wheel two modes + Flexibility + Affordable -No forward & back button -Lacks "mouse 3 button" on the scroll wheel When I bought the mouse for my laptop Asus N71JA-TY048V last summer, I felt the first very small and not "made for my hand." After some use the mouse felt quite right. Certainly it is not a normal sized mouse but second into and fits well in large hands like mine. Installation was not damn difficult. Load setpointen (software + drivers) and then just run. Remember to have bluetooth device running on the computer. ;) Buttons and functions: The thing I miss most about the mouse is that it has forward and back buttons. But extra middle button on the mouse is alright useful for the most part. It is possible to reprogram it to anything almost. The scroll wheel, I really like the mouse that lacks "mouse 3 button" or whatever it's called. But it has another very good feature for one that plugs or must daily read long and large documents. It is that you can incrementally scrolling in documents or press the scroll wheel to scroll quickly through the document to the portion of the document you want to read in. Battery life is outstanding. I have the feeling that the 2 AA batterina from Duracell has been longer than 75 days. (I still run on the same batteries and it's still 30 days left in the battery time). ** For those of you running Windows 7 or Vista on a laptop that has a built in bluetooth device. As daily experience problems with the mouse. In the form that it loses contact with the computer. This is because Windows 7 has a jerk function itself. To the effect that the windows 7 can decide when it wants to turn off the connection to the mouse. Then turn off mjukvarumessigt bluetooth device. Then does not even help to turn off and on the bluetooth device via a button on the computer. So you have to restart your computer. Finding anew bluetooth devices do produce on. Probably so, Vista has also this j * vla function. BUT! it can be turned off in the device manager for bluetooth device. **
