I hate both WP and Android low end phones. But yes, WP takes the notch on smoothness in the low end. And pretty much that's it. Low end Window Phones are buggy, underspecced and unable to run all the available software for WP. The same thing can be said about low end droids.

But if you wanna talk about low end in a Lumia 820 & 920 article, go on.

You obviously haven't used SGS3 on ICS or Jellybean, so you'll keep repeating "Android lags" as a mantra without even knowing what you're talking about. Keep telling yourself that WP is better than Android and maybe you'll actually come to believe it someday.

don't know, how to sell Lumias or don't know anything of their spec., so they can sell only HTC beside iPhones of course. No wonder Nokia won't sell in America. XD

Who cares anyway, what Americans will buy!
They can buy their iPhone5, no matter how
much problems it has, they just MUST have it!

Read the linked news sources before commenting with outdated news links. These newer tests are done with the Lumia 920 confirm the tech is in a class of its own beyond the competition.

Except U keep scratching from left to right...u have the same inside apps page of android right?! all docs r neatly arranged inside msoffice app which is free for WP users as well as acrobat app users from Microsoft and adobe! Windows hv live tiles which R smart short cuts and one swipe gets U into app list arranged with alphabets...which for million users is suffice...in IOS U get into directly apps arrangement... Tell me what is the use of 10 or more desktops except having the infinite possibility to have apps inside and outside as short cuts! this is way U boys scream in ecstacy as freeeeedom! And countless fragmentation with confusing roms and totally bugged and insecure!

HTC will sell more WP8 phones than Nokia in the US - and Nokia will NEVER break that market by making it exclusive to just one carrier. Its absolutely ridiculous! Do they expect every person who wants a WP8 phone to switch to AT&T? People won't switch networks for the sake of a handset, they will just go for the HTC models which may not have the wireless charging but look pretty much the same. Mr Elop, you have killed Nokia - killed it DEAD!

No interactive widgets and no multiple home screens? the LIVE TILES acts as the widget and you can interact with it and who needs to change the home screen if you got a beautiful one already. Not useful lock screen? Are you serious about this one? No folder and no shortcuts? This is not your typical OS, that stuff might be useful but then again this OS is created to be unique and to standout from the crowd.

Now lets talk about its upper hand with android.
1. Even with the earlier version which is WinPhone7 You can already enjoy its smoothness and lagfree system even down to the low end ones. So what would you expect from the latest version? Total contentment.
2. Live Tiles, unlike boring widgets.
3. Socialization.
4. The High end ones has better design and built than its counterparts.
5. Xbox Live!
Those are the only things that I can give you at this moment, just wait for its official launch. But one thing is for sure Lumia 920 eats all the phones out there.
