The only genuinely good phone camera I've used is the Galaxy S2. Other than that I love my Lumia and can't wait for WP 7.8 whenever it's finally gonna turn up.

Let see who can beat Nokia in build quality, signal reception, call quality, camera, Clearblack screen, and Rich Audio recording. There is no other OEM that can compete with that. Nokia is the best in all those areas I mentioned.

Samsung should lower the prices of its products in countries where some users are still running Gingerbread and honeycomb. Its high time now Google forces all phones to be compatible to stock Android. Google should also make it easier for all android users to install stock android, straight from Google play. otherwise google should prepare itself for mass exodus of android users to other platforms

If Nokia and Microsoft really want to turn heads they need to keep up with the times.

1. Quad core announcement. Dual core falls short.
2. Nokia tablet
3. Nokia phoneblets
4. Put all imaging knowledge they have in symbian into wp8
5. At least one pureview like device. Have you read the latest 808 reviews?
6. Really put the feature list as it has to be. Wp was made thimking against IOs. There are many features 'like' ios. So, I pray god they leave those comparison aside (needed at the time) and understand that the device is a complete computer with an unique UI. I hope the Os, the apps and ecosystem let the user have a full computer experience, rather than the actual 'almost' there experience I have in Symbian/Android/wp7/Ios

Not they are not the same.
Nexus has lag on quad cores like all android devices.

WP doesn't

N82 is launched on a different era where iphone was just launched and android had no marketed device yet.
Apps/ecosystem was still alien to consumer back then

All WP8 phones are arguably Nexus devices. I let the Android fanboys think about that.

I'm an iOS and a BBOS user... I need the BBOS to handle my emails and other work related stuff, but iOS is definitely fun...
likewise, my mom's using an ICS SE, and a BB... for the same reasons...
have been thinking bout upgrading my BB, and if WP8 performs as well as I'm expecting it to, then no reason not to get one...

I do believe WP8 will be targeted at the working class, and both iOS and Android OS are designed to be more "fun" rather than business-friendly...

lumia 900 with a arguably better hardware design, more 'modern' OS and better pricing, sold just 330,000?

So before u call others fanboys, learn the facts first..

And I use nokia, i don't use android

I am just waiting to see what WP8 is all about. Android does not do all I want as a business device so I am waiting. If it is as good as people has been saying, then yes, Samsung share of market will decline. I has too. The market is a fickle. It can turn on Samsung and Android in a few months and blow a hole in its market share. But Samsung is not stupid. I would not be surprised if Samsung has already a pile of WP8 devices to come on to the market. If they don't they are the losers.
