If I read the news right and I know I have, differences between these two models are only screen size and megapixels in camera and difference is 150 EUR.
Problem is that with this price you can get an Android phone with more apps and more functions (at the moment).
Microsoft will have to do better than that!

A lot of ignorant ppl here. Samsung has succeeded in creating a of mobile smartphone phareses who still think quad core is that efficient. Mobile CPU usage by mobile os is not like that of laptops and desktops. D OSs still doesn't utilize d full potential of multicores. But samsung has ppl believing d more cores u have d better. It's all just gimics and flexing of tech muscles, and on d long run uneducating ppl instead of educating ppl about technology. Besides dual core Krait is better than other quad core CPUs.

"an arrow can be shot only by pulling it back"
So, when NOKIA dragged back with dificulties(and failures, as most people say), it means dat it's going to launch into something great.,
- could this be the long awaited comeback of the king.?
- will the king reign supreme again.?
NOKIA still have the most commented thread even the article is not about nokia, still people are craving for their phones. Hopefully they will not disappoint

I still receive software OTA updates for my old E7 up to now. the last update was yesterday. No more Samsungs, the Galaxy S2 and my Tab 10.1 are the last Samsung products. Why should one get hypertension for software updates which never come? If you buy Samsung (especially the Galaxy series) be ready to learn how to install custom ROMs, at your own risk, of course!

It all depends on what you do with the phone and how many you manage your apps with the built in task manager

If you read the post COMPLETELY you'll see the higher end WP8 Samsung is releasing will have the specs from US Samsung Galaxy S3. And we all know the US version is a downgrade from international SGS3 as it doesn't have the quad core processor.
A dual core processor is nothing to write home about so you can feel safe Nokia will bring something at least with comparable specs. Just remember Nokia wasn't able to launch a single multicore device before WP8 not because they weren't able to get that technology. It was just because that wasn't possible with the OSes they had available. Now they can and won't dissapoint. 2 cores in WP8 must be enough for now, we aren't talking about RAM-and-power-hungry Android anyway
