On the weekend I had a chance to play about with the 1520′s camera a bit more. Perhaps I shouldn’t have given that the 1520′s screen was just recently damaged in a way that any slight movement caused it to press buttons, scroll erratically or exit apps randomly. At the time, I assumed that when videos I played slightly stuttered or skipped I thought it was due to that.
Oddly this week, the screen started behaving again and despite the cosmetic screen damage, I’ve been really enjoying using the 1520.
Huge screen for viewing/reading/taking pictures/watching videos
Oddly I find the bigger keyboard even comfier to type on
Epic battery life. Everything on, even hotspot. Whole day and more on heavy use.
Bigge screen, bigger wallet accessory, more cards to fit :p
I tried to record on the default WP camera app and that seemed a lot better (in that the video and audio are ok. There’s no zooming, or stereo audio) Though WP camera is recording at lower bitrates than the Nokia Camera app, right? I’m hoping it’s more due to the app than the MicroSD card I recently got (I have misplaced the packaging as it was just one of those frustration free ones from Amazon).
I’ve seen a few threads online where folks are mentioning issues like this with their MicroSD (as they’ve been sent some faulty/fake Sandisk cards). I also read some comments that mention the issue was also on their 1020, suggesting something to do with Nokia Camera.
I’m not 100% sure what the issue is. I could take out the MicroSD card and film again with the 1520 but I’m not sure how stable it is in handling MicroSD cards. I’ll try later after Uni. The 1520 is going to be sent in for repair btw so I might not have it with me to test for a few days.
