Then Samsung puts touch-lag on top of jelly-tryhideit-bean, HTC puts lag-sense on their phones...and so on.
All on top of a bloating mess.

Then here telling us 4.0 had fixed the lag.
and now here again telling us 4.1 will fix the lag.

See you again next month when 4.2 is out to tell us the same thing? and so on...

Just wait for quad cores at 3Ghz and 2GB RAM that'll help a bit.

Android has a framework and garbage collection issue
that Google themselves know will only be solved with
higher spec hardware.
That's Why it lags and slows over time..

i want one but its just not customizable and doesn't have many features built in. The hardware is pretty great though and i love the colors. I would still buy this over an iphone

I wonder if this device will see the light of day seeing as how HTC are getting Sued by Nokia?

Android lags over time. WP and iOS have none of that. Android is also the most buggiest platform out there due to hardware fragmentation in SoC and graphics chips.

we should all welcome these win8 phones. If they moved forward in right direction, we may have other GOOD options than android. Android is good, no complains; I am HTC one S user. But, i would love to see more options :). thumbs up for win8.

WP8 is laggy, horrible battery life and no apps. WP7 is incompatibile and dead. Platform with no users and already fragmented.
