Amber + GDR 2 Update status for your Lumia For those who are eagerly waiting for the next Windows phone update, here you have something to check the status of update. At the time of the post Lumia 920 update is available, Lumia 620 and 820 are coming soon and 520 & 720 are waiting for approval. This is almost the same pattern of the mobile phone release in India.
It’s been long time since the previous update from Microsoft for windows Phone and it finally around the corner now. GDR 2(General Distribution Release 2). However the release is still small and not many major OS updates could be seen. Still it is a welcome release, after all something is better than nothing.
Also this update is going to be combined with Nokia’s Amber update. Which over all seems to be pretty good update for the Lumia devices. Let me list what all you are going to get in these updates.
- Better Battery life (those who got it say: “battery felt much improved“)
- SMS and Call filters
- Glance screen settings (YouTube)
