The all-singing, all-dancing Windows Phone 8 is finally here, bringing with it five new phones and marking a turning point in the success of WinPho. Maybe.
But all is not well in the nascent world of Windows Phone 8, as we’re hearing reports of users suffering from random reboots. Furthermore, there are complaints of poor Windows Phone 8 battery life. Oh dear.
A thread over on WPCentral reveals that users of the HTC 8X are observing random reboots – roughly once per day. Said thread currently has 160 comments.
There’s a second self-explanatory thread over on the Microsoft Community forums titled “8X reboots”, with 60+ replies at the time of writing.
Meanwhile, a thread on Nokia Support Discussions details a Nokia Lumia 920 freezing issue, with some users adding that battery life is poor.
There’s no official statement from HTC, Nokia or Microsoft just yet, though we expect them to address the issue with an update sooner rather than later.
Unfortunately, this is the risk you run when backing devices – and indeed operating systems – at launch. Having said that, there are far worse things in life than a daily reboot, know wha’m sayin’?
Anyone here pick up a cheeky HTC 8X or Nokia Lumia 920? How are you getting on?
