    When i upgraded my nokia lumia 1320 to 8.1 OS through preview for developers, i found that it started crashing a lot. Just in 10 hours, i gave it two hard resets and around 50 soft resets. It always say that my SD card is having some problem, but i formatted the SD card and then put it in my phone. but it is still crashing. It hangs a lot. It automatically switches off and a goodbye screen starts appearing for around 10 minutes(Seriously 10 minutes). I bought it just 2 days ago, and its performance is so dissatisfactory..

    • Kamal

      Did u try removing SD card and then check whether you are still getting random reboots?

  • I don’t mind upgrading to class 6 SDHC on my HTC 8S for some bucks, than replacing my phone due to storage problem.

    or these requirements are only for Nokia windows phones??

    • Kamal

      It is about Windows Phone 8.1, so will be valid for all Windows Phone 8 devices 🙂

  • Rokesh
