I am making simple calm statements in reply to your bashing and lies only calling you out for what you are doing. Other than saying you are trolling I have not spoken one word of which company or os is better or worse or anything...But all you have done is bashed on me, made assumptions of what my standpoint is, and bashed more for that standpoint you assumed. And bashed and bashed. Is name calling and trash talking all you are capable of? Shows how "CONFIDENT" you are in your choice.

I'm sure 4.2 will be the real true final fix then?

Technically, they push the frame rate to 60fps not hiding it. So your argument is invalid. And I agree it is an improvement. Blind windows phone fanboy will never admit it.

But we also heard that same claim with 4.0 and 2.3 before that , that it never lags as well.

Interesting.....what is it then?
less lag? hiding the lag better...? haha

Android was born to lag and always will.
If you read up why it lags in the first place , it will always be there.

It's a totally different architecture and hence the old hardware is not supported. They still have support for old gen apps from market.
It's being said that wp8 can run most of the windows apps directly or with little code change.
I always loved android like my girlfriend but this new chick in the neighbourhood is not just hot but promises to be good in bed and in kitchen. Can't wait to see what's in the future.
As of now Android rocks - hands down.

Wonder if Apple will sue this Samsung device with WP8, because it also looks like Galaxy S that looks like iPhone (minus the Windows logo).

Then handle the truth.

Second use a Windows Phone vs Android.
See why everyone describes Android as laggy and not
as smooth in reviews.

Jellybean is hiding lag by trying to make it smoother on the eye. Fans lap it up as an effect now.

wp 7 is light but wp 8 is not light at all. android jelly bean can be used in nexus s (cortex a8, sgx 540) but wp 8 need dual krait (more powerful than sgs iii) and cannot be used in older generation of wp (snapdragon with adreno 205, more powerful than nexus s). so which one is lighter is?
