What visual glitches have you discovered in Windows Phone?

Windows Phone is an operating system like others available on the market. There are not only issues introduced and fixed in subsequent updates, but also glitches and somewhat humorous bugs to be discovered. There are a handful of visual glitches in Windows Phone, which have been collected and discussed on our forum.

If you look at the above photo, you'll notice that the Start screen sits behind the app list filter. This shouldn't normally happen. When hitting the filter to sort through apps, the list of installed content should be hidden behind the selector itself. It's easy to reproduce (accidentally) by simply swiping to the right as soon as a letter is pressed.

Funny Glitch

As well as the above Start screen glitch, there's the infamous Windows Phone unlock bug where swiping up to override the lockscreen shows the Start screen (regardless as to whether or not a security passcode is implemented) with no way to interact with the display. See the video below for a demonstration.

Think of it as a static image, but you're able to swipe back down to pull the lockscreen back into view. To rectify this, one has to turn the display off and back on again. Then you have instances such as the following:

  • None. Its perfect
  • Wish I can say the same, sometimes when my Lumia 920 comes out from the glance screen, the lockscreen comes out glitchy like a computer missing it's video card drivers. My only remedy is to turn off the screen and back on manually.
  • My 1520 has done that once.
  • My 928 does this
  • Same! It never happened again.
  • Seems faster :P
  • Lol. I love you! PS. Seems faster
  • I got one. But its hard to replicate need lots of apps on your start screen. 1. Slide finger up on screen. 2. Hit start to go to top. 3. Slide finger down as fast as you can. 4. Enjoy a shaky glitch
  • Posted a video of my glitch  http://youtu.be/VIUR_0kFzK4  and another simmilar one. http://youtu.be/LbIZUH80TUw
  • Oooh!  That's a good one!  It looks even worse on mine, for some reason! :)
  • I could replicate it on my 620, got a short wiggle :D
  • +620 :)
  • My 1520 does this regularly.
  • My Lumia 640 LTE does that too...its a software problem i hope they'll fix it in windows 10
  • My 1020 does that constantly. I almost exchanged it because of it, it really doesn't bother me now.
  • My 1020 is showing dark spots when looking at dark images in the dark. I know it's common for amoled screens and all but it has gotten worse. i have 2 fairly big spots in the middle of the screen now. Amoled screens are horrible imo and this is my 1st and last!
  • This is why I hate AMOLED screens. I wish they would have stuck to the screens they used in the 920. I have never owned an AMOLED phone that did not suffer screen burn in in a short period of time. I text a lot so the text window always ended up burning in for me.
  • Weird. I've had my 822 for almost a year and a half with absolutely no burn-in.
  • That's not burn-in they're talking about. AMOLED have a some black liquid splash/residue marks that remain after the manufaturing process. At least this seems to be the case with the Nokia Lumia devices. It's visible in the dark on a dark background. It's a hit or miss with how badly "spashed" a device you get. My first 925 had a big one in the middle of the screen and was really annoying when reading in the dark at night. I ended up getting it replaced.
  • It sounds like MorganRW is describing burn-in. I do have the splash/residue marks, but I rarely encounter situations in which I see them.
  • That is a perfect description! I had lots of those dark liquid residue marks showing on my first Windows Phone, the Lumia 800 and I thought It was caused by dropping or bumping the phone until my second WP (which is my current driver) the Lumia 1020 showed the same marks straight out of the box! Although it's just two spots at the top of the display. I love amoled screens but this is annoying sometimes when I use my phone in low or no light. I wonder if its caused by the clearblack layering.. Strangely my girlfriends 820 has no such marks and I have never seen it on any other manufacturers amoled display... Phew... I originally thought its because South Africa gets shipped all the Lumias that don't pass quality control.. LOL
  • Same here. Noticed that on 925 and 1520.
  • Both my Lumia 925s have done this.
  • I have that problem. I also have the problem where sometimes even after I read a text, it will still show on my glance screen and not go away until I restart my 920.
  • From the research I have done, apparently IPS screens are notorious for image retention.(burn in) Though fortunately it isn't permanent. There are videos on YouTube that will clear any image retention on your screen.. My laptop has this problem as well though it is minor and doesn't really bother me.
  • Same problem with 720
  • Yeah, my 925 and 920 have both done this. My 810 never did, though.
  • Same here. I think it's the glance screen that's causing the problem because it's the same kind of high contrast and low quality colors look as the glance screen. Normally, you don't need to turn the screen back off and on again, you can still use your phone and after a couple of seconds it gets back to normal. I'm pretty sure it's the glance screen forgetting to deactivate itself.
  • Happened with my L620
  • Happens often on my 920. You can even unlock ur screen through that glitch.
  • Yes my L620 has done it many times..
  • My 925 did the same, but only a small border on the lower side, the rest stays black
  • My 925 does the exact same thing!!
  • This is a somewhat regular occurance for me as well, same with the touchscreen sometimes not working and having to lock/unlock again
  • Happens all the time
  • My 920 does that too. It started after black update.
  • +620
  • My two week old 1520 did this first time today. All black and purple colors. Screen off and on fixed it.
    Happened after viewing and exiting a picture in Whatsapp.
  • This is why I don't use glance screen. Same happens in lumia 720
  • I get it sometimes on my L620, though not as often as I used to since Black hit.
  • Been happening on my 928 ever since amber. I'll concur with everyone else that it's probably something with glance.
  • I do face the same with my L920
  • I found that this happens when using color images in the glance background feature. Use black and white images only or disable the glance backgrounds. Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • Calendar in monthly view. Every day that has an appointment or meeting says "nulia facils" or "laecenas sem mattis" or something like that. Lumia 920.
  • that's not a glitch, they inserted those latin words on purpose
  • Yup this happens to my 920 quite often
  • Experience the same,in my 720
  • It's all about Nokia.
  • Same on my 820.
  • i can vouch for this.. but its really no big deal to me.. 
  • I thought I was the only one with this issue! It bothered me since the very beginning with my 925, but now it happens ever so seldom now.
  • Have the same issue, happens quite a bit too!
  • I uninstalled Nokia Glance on my 920 because of this problem.  Haven't seen the issue since.
  • My 920 has done screen graphics glitch few times, but I never had to restart my phone. Just unlock the lock screen and all colours comes back again. I think it is a problem with screen's refresh rate. Once screen is refreshed, it cures itself.
  • My 920 does that too.
  • Got this alot, too. The first few times I was scared that something got messed up.
  • Has happened to my 620 too. It reminds me of the 256 colors days. It gets back to normal quickly after. No biggy.
  • My 1520 does this almost every day multiple times a day.
  • That was pretty frequent when I used glance screen on my Lumia 822. Disabled glance and it stopped happening.
  • I've gotten the lock screen and start screen to look "polarized" and laggy maybe 1/300 times I wake the phone. That's about it. Older handsets had some of the mentioned issues but my 1020 just suffers from this polarizing effect. Hitting the power button and rewaking the phone always fixes it.
  • My 620 has done that a few times, looks funky
  • happens in my 1320
  • Mine does that too.
  • Happens on my 928 all the time.
  • I've never had any of the UI things (don't use glance can't stand it) I get a sound bug where i can't change the volume at all till i reboot on my 920. If i change the volume from the lock screen it will sometimes decide the ignore volume settings.  I can turn it to 0 or 30 the sound level will stay the same.
  • There was an update for audio settings in the store a week ago to fix that! Now it doesn't happen.
  • Same happened with my L920
  • SPEAKING ABOUT DISPLAY BUGS, YOU COULD INCLUDE MINE:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ2IJ6aqrFI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErS_PtscLNk    
  • I don't see what's wrong?
  • Watch closely. The phone often does not register first swipe.
  • I have seen this happen on my 1020 too. It reminds me of the 64 bit video game screens when you pull out the cartridge from the console.
  • I'm not sure if anyone can help me with this, but on my Windows PC, when I am watching YouTube videos in fullscreen, I can vaguely see either my desktop or modern UI screen in the background. This also happens when I switch from my desktop to modern UI; I can still see the desktop in the background. The YouTube thing is more annoying, though, since it is very distracting to see my entire desktop/UI screen in the background when I am trying to watch a video.
  • Sometimes the screen flickers on my lumia 920 during charging
  • I think i have seen them all. My 920 display had a flickering issue. That becomes easily noticeable when i open games hub. Got the screen replaced. I have like everyone else experienced the unlock swipe issue. It happens when u activate the screen by touching it when it just about to go to sleep.
    one recent issue i m facing(after the change of screen) is the startscreen becoming a high contrast and saturation replica of my start screen when i unlock. Stays for only a second.
  • Is the screen on my lumia 920 faulty or its bug, as the screen sometimes flickers during charging
  • If its under warranty they ll replace it for free.
  • I cant reproduce either of these on my 1520, I wish I could :(
  • :D
  • It mainly occurs on the second screen, where there is that boring column of apps. If you press a letter the alphabet is populated on the screen. If the letter has an app under it then it is hilighted with the theme colour otherwise its greyed.  I would say its a quick way to get to your apps, no swyping up three times to get to Z. If you press M then M appears at the top of the column. If its a bug its a good bug for me!  
  • I came across the 2nd glitch few times. 1st one, never before. On 1520.
  • Same here in 520.
  • Tons since I updated my 1520 last week. In addition to the one listed in the article, I've found that when unlocking the phone with the camera shutter, the screen is completely unresponsive for five or six seconds, then ALL of the taps go into effect in one spastic, explosive burst. The brightness will adjust randomly even when in a well-lit room. Double-tap to wake won't work half the time and it takes more than a minute before the phone recognizes it's being charged. I hard reset and the problems persisted for about an hour, but--knock on wood--they've disappeared since.
  • Have you tried to hit it with a brick?
  • Lol!!.. Or C4!
  • Well believe it or not I did this when I was young with a Motorola flip phone but it was with a rugged flashlight
  • At the home screen, swiped from down up at moderate strength, press the back key and immediately swipe down. You will see the home screen stutter multiple times
  • Same here
  • This bug wasn't there in amber. I was in a habit of doing that for time pass, and had to stop my habit. I reported it on live chat to nokia.
  • It has always been there since windows phone 7. I turned it I to a game at how many times I could get it to stutter by delaying my swiping down.
  • I can't reproduce with your instructions, but a simpler way is to scroll down the start screen, scroll up then immediately press home.
  • Yup. Just saw that... Scrolling up and pressing home.
  • I knew that since I bought my phone :P
  • Every single Windows Phone I've had does this. Since wp7
  • Haha yep! Scroll down, hit home, and scroll up. This has been there since windows phone 7.
  • I don't mind this glitch; sometimes I do it out of boredom :P
  • Or swipe up on the home screen and press the windows button. It will stutter like sadness incarnate.
  • I have it once a week if not more. Sometimes when I unlock my phone the colors will be super saturated and the phone will be really laggy.. If I lock then unlock, it disappears.
  • I thought that I'm the only one that come across with this problem :)
  • +920
  • Off-topic, but Haibane Renmei is a fantastic series, and I think your username is awesome. 
  • It took almost 2 years, but it happened!! Not many people have heard about, not to mention seen this. Kudos to you, mysterious 8bit lady. ^_^
  • +920
  • Try disabling glance background if you are using it. Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • That happened twice to me
  • I do have a bright fade at center of the display
  • I used to have the glitch on my 520 where a dark grey semi-lit screen would persist for a second even after locking the screen before turning black. But Black update fixed that, thankfully.
  • In my L1520, beside the notorious brightness bug - I encountered a bug that showed the display in inverted colors! It happened to me only two or three times, and immediately solved itself when locking the screen again, but the view was hilarious... Everything looked extremely trippy :) I want trippy mode integrated into WP8.1!!! :)
  • This has happend a few times on my 1520 as well.
  • Yeah . I had it also :) +620
  • If you scroll to the bottom of the start screen and then scroll back up and quickly press the home button, the tiles will bounce up and down. Been this way for ages..
  • Naa it came only with Lumia black update on my 520... Hate it !
  • Yes even I have noticed this on my phone.
  • Works the other way too. The momentum of the start screen is not set to 0 when you hit the home key, so it keeps moving.
  • That's because the home button always starts on top.
  • Ha, that one is pretty funny...atleast when I imagined my phone audibly stuttering like "C-C-C-Combo Breaker!!!".
  • Only one glitch that's not to much of a boggy on my 1520 when you go to double tap it goes back to glance double tap again works fine strange
  • I got this alot before the last firmware update because I would just rapidly tap the screen multiple times because double tap was so buggy it doesn't work half the time, so if any wanna see this bug just rapidly tap your screen to wake it up lol
  • The Facebook App #Bazinga!
  • All of it . Also , the scroll bug when bluetooth . Can't scroll the paired devices list .
  • Try to scroll on the extreme right. There's an invisible scroll bar. ;) A bug nonetheless.
  • Every now and then a glitch in displaying colors occurs after unlocking the device; it stays for a few seconds and then goes back to normal. Happened on my previous 620 and on the current 1020.
  • Both the glitches in the video I've encountered and I've also had one when in the street under direct sunlight. The dark grey tiles get brighten up way too much and go almost light silver. There also seems to be a light bug in the 1020 that makes the phone seem like it doesn't know what brightness to use. This is solved by switching off the auto-brightness. Still, unnecessary bug.   Well not to mention when the OS decides to restart out of nowhere.
  • Settings -> display -> sunlight readability (might be what you're talking about). I also got shocked when it first kicked in. But its clever.
  • Yes I thought it might be that. But it's not. It really screws up the colours. Unless it's meant to screw up the colours...in which case...it's particularly odd to look at with dark grey tiles.
  • Yes it's supposed to adjust the colors to make it more readable in sunlight, that's kinda the whole reason it exists. The 1520 uses a different type of screen that was unique in that it allowed for sunlight readability without adjusting colors.
  • Yup.. Just as the poster above mentioned. The dark keyboard looks especially distorted. But it does work well to read texts, type, etc.
  • That last video where the start screen jumps a bunch of times is caused when you tap the home button right after swiping down. Not sure if they mentioned that in the video as I don't have audio on my computer right now.   One glitch I noticed is how chopping the additional options under the "..." under the app bar animate onto the screen. It almost looks like there's a duplicate copy sliding in immediately after each option slides in. Doesn;t happen often, and really only happens with long lists.
  • True !
  • The one you guys were describing is simmilar to the one I was describing but alittle different.  yours- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbIZUH80TUw&feature=youtu.be mine - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIUR_0kFzK4  
  • The search icon, when in app switch mode, is the maps icon.
  • Yep. +1
  • And sometimes my lumia 920 screen brightness goes so bright it gives the shaky screen effect on the edges.
  • +920
  • yes I have that screen lock bug but I can access all apps normally, in that video he looks like can't do anything but I can it usually happen when I got messaging appear at top of the screen but I late to tap it  
  • True that nothing is perfect, mine is loading even the in-built apps and sometimes the keyboard doesn't respond at the moment I write!
  • I've experienced the same weird screen color bug on my 920 as 2 other posters here.  Very occasionally, when I power on the screen, before unlocking, the screen will show up in what looks like 16 color mode.  Also sometimes parts of the screen will just be black but some of my wallpaper will still be there in weird low res, low color mode.  I usually power the screen back off and back on when this happens and it comes on fine the second time.  Unlocking it also fixes the problem.
  • I get this on my 1020. Figured it was a faulty screen...
  • Sometimes when I unlock my 1520 I have a photo negative look to the whole interface but it goes away after a few seconds pr after turning the screen off then back on
  • Happens to my 1520 quite a bit too...
  • Visual glitches like rare times when live tiles are updated of wp central and bing news.
  • Yup... While using the keyboard,, I noticed tht sumtymes there are issues with touch... I touch a letter but the keyboard writes the previously touched letter by itself... This is wierd,.. I am having this issue since the black update on my Lumia 620..
  • Same happens with me since updating my Lumia 620 to Lumia Black in India!!
  • I got locked screen without time and date
  • When you go to unlock your phone, and your wallpaper decides to go, "Hrm, I think I'll go into contrast overload now." Hate that bug.
  • my sister phone shows 3G connection while my L520 shows EDGE . both use same network provider . is this count as bug ?
  • Go to mobile network and change the highest connection speed from E
  • When you bring up the alphabet selector on the app list you have always been able to see the app list in behind through the cracks. I don't think that's a glitch at all
  • No the glitch is that the start screen is behind in instead of the app list.
  • In my L920 its showing aap list
  • i've had both the lock screen one is more annoying but i had the 2nd one a whole lot on my Lumia 900 for some reason after i exited the Facebook app the tiles would take a second to load then start "rubber Banding"
  • Ever since my phone crashed whilst playing "bridge constructor" it no longer analyses used space and last night after two hours of charging it said the battery was critically low. Rebooting it resolved that issue. But yeah ever since the memory leak associated with the game bridge constructed it's being weird.
  • There is occasionally a "shadowy effect" when the phone goes into sunlight max-brightness mode
  • Sometimes, the screen flickers on my Lumia 925. Never seen that in my 810 or 920.
  • Sometimes flicking occurs on my lumia 920 during charging
  • Have a Lumia 1020 and 820. From time to time getting the 16 colour / pixilated screen as well when unlocking both devices. Hope this is fixed in an update..
  • Never had any one of these except for the lock screen one...
  • They need to be fixed in 8.1.
  • Yes! If you swipe quickly up the start screen and hit the start button hit will take you to the top of the start screen while keeping the momentum of ur swipe causing the phone to have a seizure lol
  • Yeah, that one needs to be fixed.
  • No visual glitches for me. The only glitch in Windows Phone is that it's not designed with the intention to be used as a phone.
  • I agree with this...the system to make calls and add contacts really isn't very good at all. Far too many key presses, particularly when adding a new contact. I hope 8.1 fixes that.
  • I ran into a few, inconsistent bugs. One where I unlock the phone and lock screen continuously flips up.
    Another was after I got off a phone call, lock it and place it into my pocket, some tiles are moved around or un-pinned. It's impossible since I need to unlock my phone with a code.
  • The fukin volume control!
  • Sometimes it just doesn't work in my case. Like, the volume won't increase or decrease at all... Gets fixed after re-start
  • Hey, that's my screenshot in the article! :)
  • sometimes I get my lockscreen in 16 colors, it's not like that known lockscreen problem, but has to be similar as it happens when I turn on display at the same time it turns off
  • Only recently my Lumia 1320 has had some display issues. It happened 2 to 3 times randomly. On unlocking the phone, The lock screen and start screen display a contrast of colours. It appears only for 2 secs and vanishes. I have seen other Lumia 1320 also face this problem. Earlier since the past 2 months I never faced this issue. Some say that the recent updates to settings have screwed it up. not sure though.
     
  • Sure! Sometimes when I double tap to wake, I get only the bottom part of lockscreen. Where the glance times is supposed to appear. What's more is the the resolution and image quality degrades to glance quality too. Happens very rarely but has happened 5 or 6 times since August.
  • On many apps including the official Twitter app when trying to edit profile, when typing in a text box, the keyboard covers the view of what I am typing. Not sure if this is an OS design flaw or a developers need to learn the APIs flaw, but it's annoying nonetheless.
  • Buy a HTC 8X, no problemos. ;-)
  • Or 8S :D
  • If ,which most probably is, a software problem then HTC 8X must suffer it too.
  • Lock screen Times-out after 5 minute max is the biggest annoyance. I'd like to see my home screen while on my Qi charging stand for longer than 5 minutes! Anyone agree and/or find a workaround?
  • There's a 15, 30 and never option time limit.
  • My wp8.1 is perfect!
  • your windows phone 8.1
  • Wp8 is less smooth than wp7, we can see it through transitions
  • Gotta agree. WP7 was smooooth.
  • I only hope WP8.1 is smoother :P
  • Only issues I have is sometimes when I wake up the phone the screen looks like if a computers has a bad video card drivers so I lock and unlock and is gone. Nokia or Microsoft should come here and read our comments and issues. I thought it was only me with that problem or because I was an early adopter when Lumia 920 came out
  • It only happened on my 720 amber and still happens with black update. My 1520 works perfect except for the stupid tap and scroll misidentified
  • None. But am I alone on this.... My L925 since updated to black is super laggy occasionally. Ill click send on a text and it will hang and won't let me do anything. Major bummer when I run my business through my phone and timing is everything. 80% of the time its fine. But this phone has been perfect till now..........
  • Oh ya... And last night my screen went black.... Buttons kept flashing when I hit power. Full charge. Had to soft reset and it took like 30seconds to work. Hmmmmmmmmmmm guess im hoping 8.1 Preview is a GO on the 2nd so I can clean this OS up
  • My 920 has done that, too, where I try to send a text and it will just sit there. But it did that even before Black.
  • Mine did too... But its doing it 10x more now........ And I have very few apps running in the background. Like 4... None that are labor-intensive.
  • I have a few of them... The pictures hub shows 4-5 images, even when it is just 1 image. Also if I delete even 1 of them, all of them get deleted. It goes similarly for Music Hub as well. Just that deleting 1 doesn't delete all of them. And sometimes it happens like I can't open any third party app like WhatsApp, NextGen Reader etc. All i can use is phone, people hub,etc. It does show the "tapped" animation. Like the tile gets pressed.. The two that were shown above. And probably the worst, I tried installing Trials Xtreme 3, it was taking too long so i canceled it, but now when I try installing via SD card it's greyed out doesn't show up in the games hub, and worst of all the settings app, takes up ~240mb of phone storage. Like the "other storage" wasn't taking enough space.  Maybe coz I haven't updated my 520 ever. It still has stock WP8 and hence the bugs...
  • I had this problem and the settings app went over 2GB! Just install the game again and it'll be fine.
  • Wow.i too face all of those problems in my 520.surprised i was not the only one in case of trial extreme 3.also there is a bug in scrolling in Bluetooth paired list although its solved. It has not been fixed in gdr2 and black update as my 520 have been updated to both.
  • The most frequent glitch I see is the colours are over saturated. It eventually recovers on its on. I always thought the glitchy scroll(s) on the home screen was included for visual effect ;)
  • Sometimes when I've overworked my camera and I'm low on storage, the display of my camera has purple flickers. It would appear as if the display alternates between the normal display and purple frames.
  • If you tap the screen RIGHT as it turns off to go to sleep, it has this blank lock screen, just the picture, that you can slide up and down and see what's under it, and you have to press the power button to actually get back into the phone.
  • I found a bug!
    Scroll down to the bottom of your home screen and with one swipe try and get to the top. While this is happening tap the the back button once. See what happens (make shore you don't have any open apps)
  • I know the second glitch but not the first one. A glitch I know is when your going to change the theme color. As soon as you open the color selector quickly tap any color and a different color is going to be selected.
  • Sometimes there's lag in the animations when opening apps.
  • About the lock screen glitch: You don't actually need to turn off the display when that happens. Just hit the Start button and the normal lock screen will show up and then you can swipe up. At least this is how it works in my Lumia 920. The other visual glitch I have found happens when you go back to the start screen and if the tile's animation hasn't finished and you long press the Back button, you can see the the animation frozen in the app switcher. Aaaaand this is my first comment ever on WPC! This site is my daily fix for Windows Phone news since the first day I bought my beloved Lumia one year ago :)
  • For me its gotta be the one where the start screen freezes......I don't know if I'd call it a "humorous glitch".........friggin pain in the ass is more like it
  • When I use my lumia 920 outdoors under sun the screen fades. It happens since the beginning. Excessive light/exposure to sun causes the screen to fade.
  • That is a feature, you can disable in settings.
  • Does anyone get the calendar app in Spanish when you view it monthly, seen that on my 928 and 1520(which is the international version).
  • Is it Spanish? It looks like random letters to me.
  • and so you find it out   and so you write it out LOUD!
  • Latin.
  • Yes, it's just example text in Latin.
  • Yes, this is called "Lorem Ipsum" text. Periodicals use it when putting together layouts before the final print is ready. It's basically filler text made up of Latin. On older phones, it wasn't readable anyway, so it was fine. On 768p and 1080p devices now, it is an embarrassing blemish of Microsoft's inability to fix problems in a timely manner. Glitch indeed.
  • Has any 1520 owners experienced this bug, when you plug in your phone to charge and the glance screen slowly moves it ways to the top of the screen and back down to the bottom? or is this how it is supposed to work when charging?
  • Supposed to lol.
  • My 928 sometimes flashes yellow (I have the Brown accent) after unlocking, or if I unlock while outside.   Also, some of Nokia's apps do not like the Brown accent, and went to an all brown tile, with no icon. I put them all in a folder, and now the app icon is back.
  • In calendar month view the entries are just random characters if you look closely, not the actual name of the event.
  • I have noticed this...bizarra. It is Latin.
  • Anyone else ever notice that a block of 4 small tiles is actually a hair smaller than a single medium tile? If you are scrolling up and have the two side by side you can see just a single line of pixels remaining on the whole tile after the block if 4 disappears off the top if your screen. No biggie of course, just kind of surprising they are not balanced
  • All of them
  • Scroll down on home screen then hit home...it skips around for a while. This was in wp7 too.
  • pressing the "shuffle" "play all" option in music+videos causes the phone to hang for a few seconds. you can't adjust the volume, go to the start screen or do anything. I consider this a bug because Windows Phone should handle this better. it's creating a pseudo-random playlist, but if that causes a hang it should only fetch a partial list and load the rest in the background.
  • We can easily watch the pixels on the calendar!!
  • The lock screen bug bugs me too. If you touch the screen right before it times out, it "unlocks" but the time stamp is not present and you can't interact.
  • -Just swipe down the start screen and immediatly swipe up, tye animation will glitch.
    -I also had the lock screen without text on it.
    -Another glitch is the oversaturated color thing that happens very often to my Lumia 920.
    -The icons in the multitasking screen do not match with the app.
  • My multitasking screen doesn't show the app icons under the screen, only the blue background sometimes on 920 Black.
  • Very occasionally when my phone comes out of the locks screen it displays a highly magnified image of one area, usually the top left, of the home screen. Cycling on and off fixes it.
  • Same here, tried to make a screenshot of it but that was just fine!
  • Yeah, resolution becomes scrambled like the way above post stated and have my phone black out and whatever I tried the glance screen wouldn't come up or the lock button didn't solve anything. Restarted it or random restarts on its own.
  • No problems here.  Be it known that I never tried to force updates that haven't been released through 'normal' channels. (3 Lumia 920s on AT&T, all on GDR3) 
  • If I tap the screen right as it fades to sleep after say a notification, the lock screen will turn back on but the date and time will be missing and it won't actually unlock the phone. After swiping up on this function less lock screen it will reset to a functional lock screen. (Lumia 920)
  • I've notice quite a few on my 1520 than any other WP devise. The screen not accepting a tap input. Not accepting a scroll input. At one point I was swiping back to the home screen and the screen was glitching back and forth until I lock the phone and unlocked it. One thing I have an issue with is the music player. I start a song fresh and the screen pauses for a moment and then allows me to lock the phone. Oh well I still enjoy WP over other OS's.
  • I know a funny one at my 8s. At first you need the white backgroud and a password on your phone. So then swype your Lockscreen up, swype it again but this time down, after that press the camera button and wait that the camera app starts, then push the Home button so that you can see your Lockscreen and swype it up and the you´ll see the password area is black :)
  • Sometimes when picking up a call on my L620 outdoors under bright sunlight, my screen becomes unresponsive. The only remedy is to lock and wake up the screen.
  • Sometimes zooming in on an email message the screen will jump a bit and then the touch no longer responds. I have to do the screen off/on thing to get control back. 928
  • Sometimes in photos hub, swiping left or right leads to overlayed display, performance wise, not able to reduce volume while listening to music, sometimes tiles are unresponsive... 720.. Still.. Its fun..
  • I've seen this happen to my bro's L820 several times :P it is annoying!
  • Yah.. Very often.. Still.. Hoping .. It ll be corrected in next update.. But.. Similar to "tomorrow"... "next" never comes.... Lol...
  • Sometimes (very rare though) when I unlock my Lumia 820 it appears like some 16 bit colors. It's really weird. I have to lock and unlock again to use normally. The "no responsive" lockscreen happens a lot when answering quickly a call. The "jumping" effect I've noticed some time ago... is funny lol
  • There is a bug where one can not see the whole name of a video on the videos list screen.
    If videos are numbered from 1 to 150 for example, the phone wil arrange them as 1, 10, 101, 102 etc yet it they are supposed to arranged in their chronologicalorder like 1, 2,.....9, 10, 11, etc.
    Videos on phone can be viewed on computer in their respective Folders but viewing them directly on phone they would be all listed as if they have been saved in one folder.
  • Well i haven't had any issues with the Windows Phone GUI itself i have had some graphics issues with certains games i.e. Subway Surfers and Zombie Tsunami, during game play there is a brief but noticable stutter but it's more noticable with the former than the latter. I wouldn't have expected any issues with the Lumia 1020 considering it has 2GB ram so issues are likely caused by bugs within the games.
  • I get some stutter on my 525 while playing subway surfer and I get multiple random lightning like stutters while playing flappy bird by zodo
  • I just remembered having a stuttering issue with Subway Surfers on Android as well, it was never fixed so it's strange to have the same unfixed issue on WP8.
  • I get tat lock screen glitch now n den..
  • Yes..faced problems like u...
  • If you tap the screen just as it goes dark, a "fake" lock screen appears. It doesn't show the time or any notifications. While you can swipe it up (and down) you can't open any apps. You have to press the power button or let it go dark again to get it back to normal.
  • This
  • Multitasking while on a phone call is horrible. I hope they get it fixed in eight pernt one
  • This^
  • My problem is not really a bug. But I thought I'd post it here to see if people agree or disagree with me. I've had every wp8 device except the Icon. And something that was present in wp7 and didn't get fixed in wp8 is how low the top tiles rest on the home screen. I'd prefer the top of the tile to rest at the bottom of the top notifications. Instead there is a big empty black space there. That to me is annoying.
  • Can't agree more.
  • I have some glitch on my lumia 820, but i can't explain it.. :/
  • I of course still have that touch issue in my 1520. I found one more where pressing any of the three touch screen buttons in lock screen gives no feedback like vibration .
  • Swipe up quickly on the Start screen and hit the back arrow. Looks awful.
  • I have some serious stutter when loading our family Room and when rotating in messaging there. Have to give it a couple secs to cache all the calendar entries and notes..
  • Open any app say, WhatsApp. Without closing the app, change the background eg. dark to light and check the app.
  • Tap on back button and any tile on homescreen at the same time then u will see a tile pop up then again tap anywhere on screen, tile will go straight at the top row.
  • Right now the biggest problem in WP has is "other" storage.
    It still taking 900mb in my phone.
    I thought ms solved this in gdr3
  • I don't think it was ever fixed fully and it's likely we were just placated to an extent. although it does work to a certain degree it's frustrating as to how slow it is.
  • Weird thing...when you hold the back button and you get the open apps....then press the back button again to resume the current app while the app is resuming from the multitask view...quickly press the X sign(while exiting from multitask view) and you'll see the app is closing twice...i know...many wudnt understand this...bt if someone does....try conveying it to others in a better way
  • I got it. You mean to say that the app closes in the multitask view as well as it shows up and then closes like you close apps by pressing the back button.
  • I feel that must be because closing apps through multitask view was introduced separately at a later stage and also because WP8 resumes the app and then closes since you pressed the back button first and tapped close later so the OS tries to function in the order of the keys and buttons tapped. Just a guess.
  • Sometimes I see glitch on lock screen while opening lock, only half screen visible and high saturated colors.
  • Loading..resuming...always spoiling party...especially whatsapp,nokia camera..,.
  • When I'm in the app list and I happen to scroll and at the same time press at a letter and the list momentarily continues to scroll in the background of the alphabet tiles, much like the one on image 2 of the article.
  • Glad to say I could only reproduce a couple of the bugs mentioned in this discussion on my L928.
  • Perfect
  • Oooh, yes, that unlock bug is bugging me big time and I hate it. But even more than that I hate the "screw you, I won't let you answer this call" bug. My phone is ringing, I swipe up to get to the answer button and they are ALL grayed out and I can't tap on any of them. I have to lock-unlock to answer. That kills the ringer, of course (who cares) and it's annoying. 
  • Yup.. I hate that too..
  • I too facing the same proble, sinceI have bought my phone..MIcrosoft should fix it..
  • ive found the last two before, the lockscreen one i got a lot with my old L521, though i havent seen it once with my l925. the start menu jumping is also one ive found... i love doing it randomly (oh the attentionspan of my brain)
  • Mu volume rocker volume low button does not work if i use it after long time and now even camera button is not working,i have to hard press it for few second and then its work normally till i m using and again after long time same problem
  • Since the Black update, my wife's is discolored around the edges.
  • I've occasionally experienced some of the problems above with my 928 and now with my Icon (although not very often with the Icon).  The most annoying problem that I've encountered for the entire life of Windows Phone's existence (all iterations of current WP(7,8) not old Win Mobile) is the issue of not always being able to completely shut down music/audio. Music (or talk radio, etc.) will just randomly come on even when the app is shut down and the "pause" button on the home screen audio drop down has been pushed. Also, it "always" randomly comes on whenever a bluetooth headset is connected or disconnected, even if the app is closed. Everyone that I know with a Windows Phone has this problem. Hey MICROSOFT...how about including an actual STOP button that truly terminates the audio instead of just a PAUSE button!?? 
  • Third party apps do offer a way to shut the music down. Hope that helps.
  • yeah but we shouldn't need to rely on a third party app to do this.
  • Yeah that bug the hell out of me as well, having a stop button is essentail and just because Apple don't have it in ios doesn't mean WP shouldnt have it either. i'd like to be able to close the music app fully and not having haning off my volume controls all the time. Why do Microsoft always think they know what we want instead of the other way around.
  • Swipe down to the bottom on the start (home) screen. From there swipe up, and quickly after, press the Windows button. The screen will shutter.
  • What actually is the function of the button on the right bottom, having the planet sign on it?
  • We talking about bing?
  • The eye? On Bing?
  • No he means the circle with the lines through it on the bottom right of the app list filter, i havent a clue as it doesnt work for me wheni press it.
  • Its for symbols not in our alphabet, like apps that start with a Chinese symbol
  • In calendar,in month view long press on any date in dark theme it will turn white.....wierd ?? Bug- yes
  • Maybe to show that particular date has been selected and to tell you that don't just keep that date pressed and no context menu will pop up. So do something else.
  • I had a glitch where my start screen was zoomed in enough where I can only see a few huge tiles. And everything else was zoomed in as well. A reboot cured that.
  • That could have been the magnifier? Is it on in ease of access? Try a double tap with two fingers to see if it happens again.
  • Never even selected it. Not even once.
  • Thanks, all along i have been thinking that it was a glitch, used to take out my phone from the pocket only to be greeted by these enlarged tiles, not knowing what to do next i would just reboot,
  • Typically in camera mode, you hit the three ... And a menu will fly up on top of another menu. Then it has an "oh shit" moment and the other menu goes away. Just layers upon layers.
  • I'm glad that I've experienced nothing other than the screen getting a pinkish hue, sometimes - rectified by turning of the screen a couple of times (happens in contrast mode too) Only other issue is the resuming and loading - guess that's the lack of ram on the 625 ;)
  • Yeahh noticed this !
  • Bouncy Tiles Bug: Swipe slowly from the bottom of your home screen up and while it travels upwards press the home button. The tiles will bounce frantically, and the faster you pull this off, the faster they will bounce.
  • Sometimes in email and messaging, the layout changes and the tickboxes go to the right instead of the usual left. Tough to explain but a bug nonetheless.
  • Podcast Volume Bug: Some podcasts while playing will not respond to volume changes. If you turn down the volume, the podcast stays at the same level while the rest of the phone sounds get quieter. This can be resolved by pausing the podcast, adjusting the volume and then pressing the original podcast tile in the podcast list in music+video app. If the last step isn't followed, the podcast will resume at the same, uncontrollable volume.
  • The music app..... the bar should let you scroll to the time you want instead of holding the skip or previous button.
  • Well i had more dire bug where an app shows up in the start screen but missing from the app list. Also there's an app which forever stuck in update status.
  • Hey people i cant add friends on Xbox ...i can anyone say why that happens? Also i don't get nokia music service ..i have not got it for 8 out of 11 months of using my 520,..there is any specific reason to my problem? Please help guys
  • Someone should release an app to help people exchange gamer tag based on... a series of filters. by location, by favorite game genre, favorite games, etc.
  • NEVER on my 920. However I get another interesting one which was also present on my old Lumia 800.
    When scrolling down on the Start Screen then hitting the Windows button the scart screen does some very awkward bouncing at the top of the Start Screen. Think this has since been resolved though. Games hub with the avitar walking in. Swipe left and you'll see him start from an invisible wall instead of the side of the screen. Present in Windows Phone 7 as well as 8.
  • 1520 starts to shake as off someone is moving the screen up and down fast. Then automatically goes to search. Weird and no one knows why.
  • When I wakp up my phone sometimes the lockscreen doesn't respond at all. I had to turn display on and off again to make it work. It sucks! But I've noticed, it only happens when I have some handsome amount of live tiles....
  • The password keyboard sometimes pops up dark even if the theme is a light background... that would be good to fix.
  • Some of the color glitches i have had on the unlock. But most of all I am bugged by the lack of animation when all apps are closed and the phone returns to the start screen.
  • My screen slightly flickers in some apps, it's minimal and doesn't last long.
  • Anyways, these bugs are way too less as compared against Android visual bugs. Never touched my Xperia M again after getting my Lumia 720.... and hopefully MS would address these bugs too with 8.1
  • Yes, that reminds me, my lock screen photo is sometimes color distorted, like a psychedelic trip.
  • Are u using glance background??
  • Dat Razer Goliathus mousepad xD
  • I like to flick my start screen down and then tap the start button to watch it scroll back up then back down on its own due to the momentum I built up when swiping it down. Neat. Been there since 7.0
  • 1. Light Flickering.
    2. On the start screen : Fast scroll down then press the windows button and scroll down again. You'll see what i mean.
  • That doesn't matter really as when scrolling fast.
  • When I'm bored I usually do the second video's trick/bug just to play around for a bit. It's quite humorous if you ask me.
  • Always, I found these bugs on my Lumia 920 and Lumia 925, but the first one doesn't happen on my Lumia 1520.
  • I always like to quickly flick up to scroll my home screen down, then hit the windows button while it's still moving, then either a) keep tapping the windows button to make the screen stutter or b) quickly flick downwards to scroll to the top again immediately after hitting start and making the start screen bounce all f*cked up. It's habit-forming! (In fact I've been doing it since wp7!)
  • I've seen occasional screen corruption and tearing during scrolling in certain applications. I can't replicate it consistently, but I've seen it on both the Lumia 920 and my buddy's 928.
  • the most annoying of them all is the file duplication bug
  • Whenever I get a call and pull out my Lumia 620 from my pocket, the screen stops responding like the first video above. I have to lock and unlock again to regain control over my phone.
  • Sometimes the lock screen is mostly blacked out and the bottom is a very dark negative. It still swipes up and all I have to do to clear it is just lock it and un lock.
  • I can't reproduce any of those "glitches".
  • on my 8X theres a faint white dot constently, it doesnt bother me as much now but still, it just appered one day.
  • This happens sometimes in my lumia520.
    The start screen tiles start flicker up and down. This happens when i minimize apps.
    Also i found sometimes tiles do not load properly. Mind you I've lots of apps and several big tiles on the start screen.
  • Yes that happens in my 520 maybe that's because of low ram or slow computation by the processor
  • My calendar in month view shows text in some other language. But when I click on a date, then the detailed information is shown in the default language. I dont know if it is just me or many others face this problem.
  • I believe its a relic of wp7. (this is just my theory) back in the wp7 days the screen resolution was capped at 480X800. That text was too small to see on that resolution so instead of wasting power on loading your events into boxes too small to read, they loaded default Latin (at least I think) into the boxes. They didnt bother to change it for wp8, thinking noone would notice, but you and I did :)
  • True, now that you have mentioned it, the text is indeed in Latin. Gosh! Someone has been sloppy/lazy at microsoft.. Haha.. :D :P
  •  I bet you guys who mentioned Glance talking about this... http://forums.wpcentral.com/nokia-lumia-928/253914-very-high-contrast-screen.html I just deleted glance and got no problem. I dont have ANY problem with my phone except Whatsapp notification - but thats off topic))  
  • Hi, I am Ankit and have Lumia 1020. I have issues related to Bluetooth of Windows Phone OS. To share any image from my phone to other device, I, first, ON the bluetooth, then pair the other device. Then from image folder, I share the photo with that device because that device is on the top of the list of all bluetooth devices. But my problem is when I select to share the photo with an unpaired device, I am not able to scroll between bluetooth devices from there(image folder).This is a technical issue, I think.
  • sometimes the lock screen appears without the usual settings on it "calender and date/time" you have to press lock again to show the actual lockscreen....   and sometimes the whole screen feels strange, the colours all bursting like a giant glitch and then you have to restart the phone to make it go away if it didnt on its own am using a Lumia 920
  • Have noticed the first glitch that you mentioned.
  • can only reproduce the Lock Screen Bug on my Ativ S. the other bugs are buggy and don't work :(
  • My phones all be messed up
  • NL920, I don't use double tap to wake or glance and have bing weather on lock screen. I've noticed sometimes the time and date disappear from the bottom left of the screen. Also when I swipe up to unlock and start inputing the password I noticed that often the first number I press doesn't get entered it's almost like there is lag after swiping up where you have to wait a little before entering the PW or it won't accept the first number.
  • The task switcher is very buggy, close a few apps (but not all) and press back to go back to your current app, it will zoom into the card you are on now, regardless whether it is the current app, and then load the current app. Also, some of my live tiles have just mysteriously stopped working
  • Another glitch is that sometimes when I press a tile it hangs a lot before opening, makes the phone seem really slow
  • forget visual glitches, its the audio glitch that gets me! sometimes the volume meter is telling me its at a point but then if i lower it or raise it; the volume of the media playing DOES NOT CHANGE. if i start a video at 0 volume then raise it to 15, no audio would be playing and i have to reset my phone because of this. Nokia lumia 1020 with black and gdr3 (with dev preview also)
  • Continuos hold the volume +  then tap in the same time the back button then you'll see a horrible bug at the music changer above.
  • That's not a bug. That happens because when the volume bar is visible and you press the back button the volume bar vanishes in upward motion but since you are holding the volume button it shows up again in downward motion making for a cool effect.
  • On My 525 when the phone is about to lock itself that is when the lights go dim and I touch the screen or the capacitive keys it is registered as a long press. And it's very irritating. When I want to go back task manager opens, if I press home then speech recognition starts, and when I touch somewhere on the screen context menu pops up.
  • Ativ S Neo from AT&T had all of the words on Temple Run 2 all garbled. I wiped that thing thinking that would take care of it but I ended up going back to my Lumia 920. The 920 takes better pictures anyway.
  • No not in my phone
  • One for me: When you have no apps in the background, and you're at the end of the start screen, slide up and press the 'back' -button. Then the start screen starts to hop up. This doesn't annoy me, it's actually just fun to play with this bug sometimes :P
  • I play with it when I'm getting bored in my office. And don't count it as a bug as the screen is in motion at the time you press home and it's motion is not reset to zero so it continues to be in motion.
  • None
  • Sometimes my phone's memory gets used up and the colours render as kind if negatives of the colour it's supposed to be. Also when you swipe towards the top of the start screen then hit home, it glitches like its bouncing around
  • The only one I get is the colors on the screen get screwed up. When unlocking my phone the screen colors are in 16-bit color.
  • When opening up an SMS txt string that contains images, the screen automatically dims down one level, to increase back to original brightness setting. Does this every time with my manual brighness setting. I don't mess with auto brightness This has done this on all my Nokia Windows Phones. Be it my Lumia 900 with 7.5 or 7.8......and my 928 with all the updates including the current Nokia Black. Annoying as hell and no reason for it. Not a problem on my old HTC Surround.
  • I have never seen any music/video player app that doesn't have a stop button except on wp8, even dvd players have it, who told them that we no longer need it?
  • It's not a visual glitch but this bug it's displayed at the main window http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_1qxGx3cq8
  • I hate when the background is set to white and put on the Battery Saver mode. Whe I do this and swipe up and down the start screen, I can see the contrast going haywire. It drives me nuts and wish this would be fixed soon. I don't if that's an AMOLED issue, since I'm rocking a 925. Anyone experienced that?
  • And @Rich Edmonds the first bug that you talked about in the article is logically not a bug. As the start screen and the app page in total is one page or you can say one screen. So when you tap an alphabet in the apps list and immediately swipe right before those alphabet page showing up and you have your start screen in background that's because they are the same page or app or screen as you may like to call it. That just shows how responsive the WP8 OS is. It takes input even between things happening so fast. And if you would have noticed after tapping an alphabet on the alphabet screen your app list scrolls to the apps starting with that alphabet. You can see that by swiping fo the left again.
  • I got one. But its hard to replicate need lots of apps on your start screen. 1. Slide finger up on screen. 2. Hit start to go to top. 3. Slide finger down as fast as you can. 4. Enjoy a shaky glitch
  • Posted a video .. http://youtu.be/VIUR_0kFzK4
  • Go to the bottom of the start screen, swipe up, then quickly press the start button...
  • That is a more simple replication of the other start screen glitch. Just posted a video of mine. Posted a follow up of your simmilar glitch.  http://youtu.be/LbIZUH80TUw
  • visual glitches - none really. Audio glitches - frequent as all hell, particularly being unable to control volume at least once every day or 2
  • Screen size would increase making it funny :) I could see only one tile horizontally at the point. Happened thrice but screenshot (windows logo + power button) would show normal screen. I would take photo from my other 920 next time it happens
  • Sometimes when i type too fast in my 1520 , i noticed there is some lagging and the letters don't show up as fast as i want it to . That doesn't usually happen, but so far for a 3 week use , i had noticed it for at least 4 times.
  • I can't see anyone mentioning this one. I have two problems on my 920. The first is when the phone is wirelessly charging and will awake from Glance and the lockscreen will bounce up repeatedly. The second is the one I dislike most. For no apparent reason I will unlock the phone and the display is magnified 4 times and unusable except to power off. Anyone experienced either?
  • Oh the lock screen glitch i just have to pull it down and then flick it back up again and it works as normal, dont have to turn screen on and off.
  • I guess you can call this a visual glitch, whenever I turn my 1520 off and then back on my tiles revert back to emerald, no matter what color they are before shutoff
  • My Me tile sometimes reposition itself on the top of home screen when trying to grip my 1520 with one hand, occurs every other day now.
  • Sometimes on my Lumia 920 you can't run any application, you tap on them but no execution. Start screen seems just fine when you press and hold you can replace and resize the tiles but you can't run an app, and also in list view you tap but nothing occurs. Only fix is restarting the phone. Today it happened again and I didn't restarted my phone waited if it fixes itself. During waiting for a fix from phone itself, a text message came and i could open only messages, mails, data sense and People hub but no other apps. After half an hour phone restarted itself autonomically and everything became normal again. It don't think this occurs simultaneously but I couldn't figure out what causes this problem.
  • Happened to me once
  • I also have a blutooth bug when an incoming text audio comes in. I click power ley to ignore it and sometimes it frezzez up my device until I turn off my ear thing.
  • My HTC 8S does the lockscreen bug thing all the time!
  • When restoring my Lumia 1520 the screen colors inverted and then slowly drifted off screen (like an overheated computer) it flickered a few times but eventually was fine. This was during the app reinstall process. Pretty wild, worst issue I've ever seen.
  • One more ugly problem: still no SkyDrive / OneDrive tiled previews for the albums in my Photos Hub, just gray squares. Long time problem, first on the 900 and now the 920.
  • Live tiles (non native) will change to the color of the kid zone tiles after using kid zone. To get them back to the appropriate color you need to wait for them to update or open the ap
  • A very funny bug.. When you search for an app by the search button in the top left corner of the menu and suppose there is not any app then it gives you the option to search the store, press the search in store and the store will open and now long press the back key to open the multitasking view, you will se that funny bug. The icon for the store will be music+video's icon. LOL lazy microsoft. They dont test before releasing phones.
  • Even I too faced the same
  • I've come across two gitches, both centered around music and both of them only happening with the same band.  The Glitch Mob, oddly enough..   When playing their music (any of their albums) the lock screen is transparent.  After buying some of their music on the phone, I now get weird glitches on the artist pages. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YZbURvrt_8
  • Not exactly WP but the WPC tile blacks out once in a while when I exit with the back button (old habits). Have to enter and exit again to display the live tile.
  • I yesterday performed reset to get rid of.. Duplicate photos and music bug....
  • Its not a screen issue, i don't think but my start button will sometimes vibrates and other times not.
  • I have a weird glitch where suddenly green pixels vanish and every thing is blue and red with black for the missing green pixels
  • I keep getting porn on mine. That's what I tell my wife, sons, and I'm sticking to it when the NSA comes callin'.
  • For the Start screen glitch, you don't have to turn the device off and on. Just hit the Home button and... voila.
  • My nokia lumia 620 has got normal and great display while not on direct sunlight but when exposed to sunlight its contrast changes radically giving it extra sharp colours  ... has anyone experience those things on their lumia
  • I have had photos return from the dead (after being deleted) when restarting the phone. It's very odd and I can't seem to pin down the variables that lead to this happening. Photos can be in the camera roll, saved pics, or screenshots folders and will randomly reappear after I restart the phone. It's very inconvenient when those pictures were deleted for very private reasons >_>
  • My lock screen sometimes displays weird letters or sometimes lines and such graphics in place of time and date
    ...plz fix it
  • Who should fix it? WPCentral? Me? ;-)
  • i have seen and experienced 2 glitches, when texting and you type "hehehehe" fast it zooms into the page until you restart the phone. then sometimes you see an incoming call and you slide up to answer and the slide motion moves the slider like a few mm and you have to slide repeatedly until you press the lock button twice to unlock the function 
  • try this! 1. have some minimised apps 2. hold back button 3. swipe left just before the app switch menu appears. enjoy! 
  • Lumia 620: tapping on answer for incoming call doesn't work. Have to press the power button twice to make the button activated. Lumia 620: screen randomly gets unresponsive (mostly after being idle for a long time), have to take off the battery for force restart. Windows Phone in general: While on call, press start > open an email. Put the phone to your ear for a second and recheck the screen, the email is gone. Can't go to task switching mode to find it... Ideally, it should persist and keep sticking the ongoing call notification (Tap to Expand) at the top.
  • I have faced both of these, adding to it I also face a glitch wherein sometimes when I unlock the phone, I could see high contrast colors, this disappears after another unlock. Many of the apps does not open immediately while on multi-tasking, it always says resuming.... this happens mostly with, Mix radio, whatsapp, facebook, etc.    
  •  The multitasking icon for phone storage shows the icon from Music+Videos app? Nokia Lumia 620 running Lumia Black.
  • The one I hate is the black bar above tiles on home screen. What's the point ?!?
  • A small glitch is present occasionally when I go to the multitasking page: the icons below the windows sometimes don't show - only a coloured tile with no icons inside.
  • Here's an unusual glitch. My Lumia 1020 shows up in the network connections list on my Asus T100 (network sharing is switched off).
    I'm unsure whether this is a minor glitch, or a potentially serious battery drain. Either way, my phone shouldn't be showing up as a network connection.
  • Make sure nothing is in your app history (press the back button continuously, scroll to bottom of home screen, swipe down from top of screen and instantly press back. It's funny
