I just got this phone yesterday and it's my first Windows phone. So far I'm growing to love it. There are a few annoyances which I'll mention soon. What phone were you using before it? How was it adjusting? Can you list some of the good apps and alternatives to apps that aren't available on WP8 but were on your previous phone (Android/iOS). The battery plain out sucks so far but I'm gonna give it the benefit of the doubt and blame it on the first few charge cycles. I have 2 emails set on push and very few apps installed so far. No Skype as I've heard lots of bad things about it How's battery life on yours? I've been using it lightly/moderately for the past 2 days and I had to charge it twice today (I didn't let it drop all the way down, maybe till about 20%). Is there no way to easily switch between ringer/vibrate/silent? I have to switch vibrate off in settings? So it's either ringer+vibrate/vibrate or ringer/silent? I know you can press on the icon in the top right corner in the sound panel to toggle between those. I don't get why there's a search button that always takes you to Bing search. Don't get me wrong I actually really like the feature but I thought it would actually be used by other apps like if you're in contacts it'll search for a name you type. I think a menu button would have been more useful so it would eliminate the need for the bar which is usually at the bottom of apps and has options. I'd like to end by saying that I really like WP8 and I was a previous iPhone and Android user. I still have my Nexus 4 which I'll eventually go back to using if I can't sort out the battery life issues with the 8X or just switch back and forth between them when I get bored of one or the other which I know I will.
