New for users and show off for others, these interesting things are:
1. Capture photos without unlocking your phone
You can quickly snap an event by just taking your phone out of your pocket and pressing just one key. When Lumia is locked and its screen is dark, just press and hold the camera button. After a brief second, the phone app will come up and let you shoot photos to your heart’s content.
2. Scan a QR code without any app
Being power by Bing, users can easily scan QR code without any app. Just tap search button of Lumia 900 and 710, and choose the icon that looks like an eye. From here, you can scan a barcode or QR code and be taken to the Internet destination to learn more.
3. Make a video call using Skype Beta
With a front-facing camera, users can make video conferencing calls. With an added of camera’s wide-angle, you can easily talk with a friend by your side and the other party can see both of you.
4. Built-in FM receiver to listen to tunes
Seems to be a hidden feature, Radio songs are easy to listen on Lumia. Go to the Music application. As long as you have headphones plugged in, you can listen to FM radio on your Lumia 900 or Lumia 710. I love listening to NPR via my local affiliate, and the Lumia’s built-in FM receiver is perfect for this function.
5. Battery Saver for Extra Battery Life
If you are too talkative, this feature will make you happy. In Settings, then Battery, you can enable Battery Saver which will discontinue your phone’s ability to get emails and a few other battery intensive operations keeping calls and SMS still functional.
6. Groups Near You
In the Contacts application, you can create groups. That way, Facebook and LinkedIn messages for people in your contacts are updated, and you don’t have to filter them out the feed in People application.
7. Use voice features on the go
This feature enables you to message text and to place call just simply calling name of relative person.
8. Easily find apps in the Marketplace
Your favorite apps are now easy to find from Marketplace. From your home screen, swipe left to reveal the installed apps list, then on the left, hit the on-screen search button and search for the application.
9. Fun experiences Near You using Local Scout
From the homescreen, click on the search button again. Hit the button on bottom that looks like the silhouette of a building. This is Local Scout and this amazing utility shows you places to eat and experiences to be had based on your physical location.
10. Recalling business phone number by name
