Android is laggy, doesn't matter how many cores. The varieties of different System on Chip and graphics chips on Android making it harder to optimize for and they cause more bugs.
i have have used the galaxy s2 and 3 first of all there cheap ugly plastic models s3 is a little good and it lags like hell i bought nokia though it lacks apps but the hardware is aweaome looks like an exotic feels like an exotic and it never lags the flash camera hold and touch are awesome so i will hail for nokia

Yet nokia sell 2 cores phone same price as 4 cores android phones
LOL!...nokia is always "one step behind!" LOL... they consider a two cores CPU an upgrade?! WTF in Q4-2012! Samsung introduced quad cores one year ago!!!(no wonder why they sold over 30 millions S3)!!!
It is like years ago when everybody have 1ghz or more CPU and nokia was stuck with the 500Mhz LOL, it took another couple of years for nokia to introduce the 1Ghz CPU (and of course the rivals brands where already using the double core 1Ghz)! hahahaha pretty pathetic!
Markus, 11 Nov 2012Interesting comments from some android fanboys. I've never owned a consistently performing and... morei have Galaxy Y Duos & Ainol Novo 7 Aurora 1 , both single core processor & really stable with official ROM + kernel mod :p i think you still dont know how to tweak android phone especialy Galaxy Series.
Geez all you Nokia fanboy really cannot make it.you just generated a ton of hatred towards Android because its sucessful although it lags a ton but if you buy a smartphone just to showoff to your friend it doesnt lag?geez =.= and this comment is coming from an iOS user so yeah =.= IDGAFF what you think
Interesting comments from some android fanboys. I've never owned a consistently performing and stable droid, including this SGS3 from which I'm posting this comment.
I'm considering getting a 920 or ATIV S. Qualitatively 920 seems better, but otherwise later isn't bad at all.
It completely depends on you whether you like WP or not. But those who used it liked it more than android. Who says android doesn't lag. Even dual core droids lag. But what matters is Android is open source where wp isn't. And wp has a long way to go to reach the Android popularity level.
Kiro, 11 Nov 2012Typical Android fanboy spouting his usual dribble by listing the numerous unnecessary features... moreI would have surprised now if you say your nexus s runs without lag..obviously an outdated Single core -512 ram is not sufficient hold the weight of android 4.2. this is not the unchanged ios to run on a 256MB ram
owl, 11 Nov 2012Still lag for casual user who don't know what dalvin? Dovakhin? Thing rihht?Dalvin was a scientist :P

khan, 11 Nov 2012windows is very good aggree but only for windows pc :D
zamroni, 11 Nov 2012I want Symbian and Meego back too. Add HD screen capability and Krait/Tegra processor then it ... moreSymbian is history dude... try android & you will know what is true Smart OS for mobile. Nokia with Symbian fooling customer many year. yes nokia give us good quality & hardware but Symbian is really suck after ios & android born. thats fact.
Zony, 10 Nov 2012LOL 4.2 still didn't release yet, Actually Nexus 4 has it and still didn't release yet so how ... more"it randomly comes and﻿ goes, but after the tango update it was gone"
They fixed it with the Tango update and every WP7.5 is running on Tango.
That random lag spike is a bug. It's when you're connected to the charger and using it at same time. It rarely happens on my Lumia 900. In that video you can't see it's connected to the charger. I am pretty sure it is connected to the charger. Get your fact straight.
Zony, 10 Nov 2012LOL 4.2 still didn't release yet, Actually Nexus 4 has it and still didn't release yet so how ... moreTypical Android fanboy spouting his usual dribble by listing the numerous unnecessary features that Android provides because it's so desperate to catch up to the standard of the iOS. Windows Phone is just taking off and like Android before it, it has to take it's time to getting to the good features that we take for granted in other phones. Also, as far as I'm concerned, what Android has isn't Multi-Tasking. I own and currently use a Nexus S and from what I've experienced, the Multi-Tasking is more of a hindrance than a benefit.
Windows phone 7/8 may lag but Android is rather bad when it comes to lagging especially since it's fragmentation is terrible. My Nexus S does the strangest of things some times and even flashing new ROMs don't fix it. So please keep your invalid opinion to yourself, Nokia may not be what it once was, but unlike Google, Nokia is trying to it's best to get there.
