The Nokia Amber update rolled out for Nokia Lumia windows phones yesterday. Here’s a quick look at what it brings along to the good ol’ Nokia Lumia 820.
Glance screen is definitely appreciated and I love how it makes use of that AMOLED screen, where only the individual pixels are switched on.
Just so you know, you can turn Glance Screen on under settings -> Display+Touch and then side swipe to get to Glance screen settings. You can also set a night mode (where the color changes to a dark red, which is less brighter and wont annoy you at bedtime). There’s also Data Sense, which makes sure your phone sticks to your monthly data allowance and doesnt cross it.
For many folks, the addition of an FM radio (enabled via the Amber update) will be much appreciated, and you can also set Nokia’s Smart Camera app to open with the dedicated camera button, instead of the simplistic Microsoft Windows Phone Camera app.
All in all, I’m lovin’ this update! Screenshots right below.
