Funny watching the HTC one X lag now and then
where the reviewer goes wild saying all this power
for nothing as it's not a fluid user experience it
should be, i've seen touchwiz is the same bloated laggness. You guys know I'm not lying either.

Why HTC is making Windows phone 8s now.

Sadly the iPhone doesn't have NFC. I won't be surprised if the iPhone 5 still won't have NFC.

Does this service work from gsm handsets already bought on orange simply through an app and nfc, or are they seperate compatible handsets that you have to get from orange?

Is Android latest OS considered secure? I red a lot of articles regarding security issues on Android OS, i'm not confident using a smartphone for such transactions.

No offense to Android fans, just asking. Maybe someone can enlighten me on this.

Funny how you Samsung fans wanted 12mp camera for this.
When Samsung released 8mp, you all thought that was great same thing happened with the note 2. Very funny
