Some Nokia Lumia 620s shipped with solution to "other" storage problem

With Storage Check, users can erase cache memory in the mysterious other storage file

You might recall that the other day, Window Phone's Joe Belfiore sent out a tweet that acknowledged the storage problem that some users of the OS have been experiencing. Native storage has been disappearing from a number of handsets powered by Windows Phone 8, and some of that storage has ended up in a mysterious "other" category.

A fix for this problem has been seen on a new version of the firmware shipped out with the latest version of the Nokia Lumia 620. While the current Lumia 620 model mostly has the 1250 firmware, a firmware version numbered 1307 seems to have the repair. With a new feature called Storage Check, users can clear temporary cache files in the "other" category and recapture the native storage that has been disappearing. The same Storage management is found on firmware 1308 for the Nokia Lumia 920.

Eventually, the new firmware versions containing this updated Storage management feature will have to be rolled out by Nokia. After all, no one likes to have even 1GB of storage hijacked by a mysterious file.

I'm not saying nokia should stop making windows phones but make android phones at the same time like other manufacturers.

There's nothing wrong with hedging your bets. And by the response from android users, they'd probably have a hit on their hands. They might give Samsung a run for their money. And they wouldn't be the only OEM who does double duty. Samsung & HTC both make phones for multiple OSs. I don't really see why that would be a bad thing. Why is more choice a bad thing?

Not really man, Samsung has managed to disappoin a huge number of us, even though my note II has a quad core two gigs of ram and latest Android, I still get lag, plus not just that both of my parents own a lumia and they have babies, it makes me jealous to see when the babies throw the phones in the ground and they're still intact, whereas my note II cracked it's screen on an accidental drop from my back pocket, from this last, and previous awful experiences with Samsung this will be my last one, and if nokia At one point were to sell Android I'd buy one in a heart beat

That would be nice, very nice, everybody loves nokia but hates windows, an android nokia would be a killer, especially if they make their own customized Android, like Samsung does, that nokia Android would be smooth and lightweight, look at symbian, they run smooth without quad cores

But people are crazy about quad cores. Don't you know that? Even though they aren't required, people buy phones based on their 'numbers'... Octa core...really, why do we need that?! More megapixels in the camera... making a decent camera doesn't mean it's a need to increase the MPs. And this goes on for each component.

People are crazy about quad cores because people DO need them. The fact that some users use only a portion of a smartphone capabilities does not mean that a quad core is useless for all the other users, just like there are people who use a PC only to write Word documents and are happy with an intel i3 with 4gb of ram and people who run games, or work with digital audio processing, image processing and want faster processors.
What's more, I've heard the "dual core is useless" refrain from Apple or Nokia users when they didn't have the dual core, now they have it and suddendly dual core is OK and quad core is useless... come on, be honest with yourself.

since when DO people need quad and octacores on their phones? for what exactly? you have any examples?
games?! oh cmon, buy a freaking console.
to open and edit word/pp/excel docs run other productivity/utility apps? a single core is perfectly enough for that (at most a dualcore). websurfing? singlecore enough (you have flash? bad luck).
oh, i'm sorry, your OS with the heckload of eyecandy cannot run smoothly on less then 2 cores? well what a pity...
a smartphone is still a phone, with a bit of utility to make some tasks easier in your everyday life and give some entertainment as well. dualcore phones should've already sufficed for this purpose.
quadcores and over that are only showoffs to give manufacturers and people something to brag about over other phones.

How about, NO. I'd prefer to see more variety in the market, if everyone goes android then it would be boring. Seriously boring. If Nokia went Android, other than Apple & Blackberry (of course), everyone else would be using Android as their major platform. Slip in whatever custom rom or skins u like, but in the end it's just Android no matter how you modify it. On windows phone UI looking like ugly tiles - it does, by default, but it depends how you customize and arrange your tiles. Lots of apps in the app store helps in customization. None of my friends and relatives who has seen my WP8 phone's UI says it is ugly, because I modified it heavily.

nah.... nokia has never been about specs... check its monster phones, their capabilities and their specs....

its really shameful that i can do so much on my n900 than i can do on my gs3... comparing their specs its not even a proper competition but features..... try installing a fully operational desktop OS on an android phone (not a skin or loader)... only problem was its HORRIBLE battery life

the 920 is the highest specced nokia phone to date but it actually doesnt NEED those specs...

dont talk about n9 and 808 pureview, specwise they suck but try fitting 41MP on an android.... try operating an android phone (without headaches) that has less than 1gb ram and single core....

you cant

a nokia android phone would be quickly compared to a gs2 and be classed as garbage no matter how optimized it is....

android NEEDS 1gb and dualcore.... heck now you are talking about octacore on phones...... and if they run android they will still LAG

Nokia is a dying phone maker that specializes in a niche operating system.
Android does not need them.
All of Nokia's offerings would be considered mid-range to Android users.
Android does not need more mid-range garbage
