      oooh WiFi Tetherin….oh wait still no

    • Not sure of that’s related with the update, but my Lumia was charging painfully slow over USB today. I mean like 5-6 hours from 12% in the morning to 100% with virtually no usage in-between.

        I’m having a few issues with charging speed too – I’m only using my Lumia for dev work, but it seems to be really fussy about chargers, and when it does accept the juice, it charges slower than an army of zimmer-framed pensioners (maybe not 6 hours, but definitely 4+).  Is it faulty, or is everyone’s like that?  I’ve Googled it, and come back with some very mixed reports. 

        One thing I love about my iPhone is that in less than an hour you can go from empty to 100%, which is one of the reasons I have relatively little issue with the average battery life of the 4S.  I guess unless you have stonking battery life, speedy charging is the next best thing.

          I have noticed the in the diagnostic menu when charging of the mains it pulls 512 odd millamps, how ever on a car charger it pulls only half that, so charging is very very slow, to combat this the flight mode speeds up car charging. However i am going to find a reason the car charger carnt provide the same juice as the home plug, i mean if you can run a tyre inflator of a cig lighter socket u should be able to charge ur phone at full speed.
