I've owned a few androids & currently a Windows Phone.
HTC OneX does lag.Played with it.You can prentend it's all good in android land. Agree to disagree on that.

The phone display for the upcoming WP8 launch has a display without "tiles", am i reading too deep or it is just for advertisement?
If its so then the WP8 phones will offer more customization than what we perceive, that would be good.

Google has taken years and still can't fix the lag.
Peanut butter now makes it smooth between the lag.

Save us from the bloated laggy buggy android mess.

WP8 market share grow to ICS and peanut butter
will be very interesting.
