It may just be a bad batch. It might be some software issue. I know that the LED light apps I tried would not switch the LED on prior to tonight but the LED flash was definitely working as you can see the red eye in the pictures I took earlier.
What’s going on huh? Also I noticed, the flash bit seems to be a little too easy to press and move. Say what?
It’s a good thing the 920 is not designed for flash pictures. But still, what an inconvenience. I also opted not to have the Phones4U instant replacement insurance because I didn’t think I’d need it (and there’s some house insurance). It’s within their 14/28 day guarantee thing so I guess I can get a replacement.
No, the 920 has not been dropped or had anything spilt on it or any damage or whatever. It’s pristine. As mentioned, it’s barely over a day old in usage. Everything else works fine. Not that it should even be a problem as my 900 has had several drops and functions like it’s brand new.
BTW, the 808 is still the phone to take pictures on a night out. The 920 is great and probably better than other LED based phones but 808 really does wipe the floor with it. Fact. Although I do like having a smartphone platform I’m comfortable with and for the same phone to be able to take some okish low light flash pics.
