I own a Lumia 710 among other devices and was willing to give the another Lumia another chance but a 800 x 480 screen, no Gorilla glass, lower spec SoC and a high-end price for a mid-range device means I'll pass.

i think wy google nexus price is lower bcs of its market place. lots of advertisement here. that create money for google. thats why they r very cheap. but in microsoft store or nokia store no advertisement. and u have to pay for app while its free in android.

When a device is made of decent hardware and cool features. Why not, you don't know how much nokia spent to buy the materials used in building this phone, you know its not just made of mere metal, you don't know how much the hardwares cost, you may think the materials are not important but if ur phone with 128gb 2gb ram sd slot and all with bad material finish and cost really cheap, if that phone falls, it will definetely get spoilt and u'll go back and repair or buy a new phone, the money spent on that phone has increased, so if Nokia price their phones a little bit higher than samsung and lg and the rest of the android gang at least cut them some slack, we all know Nokia uses decent materials to build their phones and their phones don't easily get spoilt when it hits the ground like samsung does (no offense). Just give them the benefit of the doubt.

Google have done something that others don't do even in nightmares - LOWER PRICES ... incredible as it may sound they did it and they sell top hardware+good software for way less than similar offers from competition -- and they do it with all products

Now, one might say "omg it's made by LG" ... but the nexus7 and nexus10 aren't made by LG and still they are 200$ cheaper than competition while having better hardware.
I actually look forward to my first encounter with WP8 ... but at 600+euro for Lumia920&HTCWP8X ... well, the 350E nexus is a lap ahead in the race...

A small correction to the article:

The Lumia 820 SIM-free is slightly cheaper (450) in Germany than in the UK (380£ ~ 470), see:,485121.html

The Lumia 920 is available for 600 SIM-free from the same store.

Nexus is just 1cm taller but:
+ thinner & lighter with bigger screen with much higher resolution (unlike 2010 pentile matrix Nokia - not even qhd there!)
+ twice the RAM (2GB)
+ quad core Krait CPU (instead of dual core)
+ _much_ better GPU (roughly 2-3 times the performance of Andreno 225 in Lumia)
+ last but not least, Android 4.2 as an OS is not only different playground than WP8 - but is probably not even the same league or sport. And community which usually Nexus devices get (and support) is first class.

Windows Phone 8 is finally step forward, but it'll take MS at least half year to 'catch up' and question is - if Google services will get some treatment at all. But go ahead - be a guinea pig. Others are already enjoying 700 000 apps on Android - and what a hell of an OS it has become!

Not a bad phone, but totally wrong price. Ah - you got offline maps. Well, there are dozens of quality one for £30 on Android, you know? (TomTom, Garmin, Sygic, name a few)
