Re: Bit worried by 8.1
I really like the win 8.1 update – scratched a lot of itches for me.
Volumes are split between:
ringer and notifications
media and apps
plus additional ones for any connected hardware – such as Bluetooth.
Muting is the same via the volume keys, with an additional easy access volume settings screen opened by the down arrow visible when using the volume key.
People hub has changed – more contact centric rather than ‘whats new’ social media.
630 has 512 Ram – but some apps/games require more than this, but they are a very small minority, although still a pain if that is the app you must have. It is less than an issue than with android.
In my view 8.1 is a joy. Before I regarded it as a subpar phone operating system with some interesting bits. Now it more than competes against its rivals. Yes, there are still a few niggles, but it my view it is the most intuitive.
