Android phones only have a maximum of 2years(as ive observed) official updates from the manufacturers. And a phone would only be capable to have 2 updates, few would have 3 and that would be a span of a 2 years. This lead me to ponder, do Newer versions of Droids are only Optimized for Newly spec'd phones?? How about those still capable droids, are they left for custom roms?

Some post here are very enlighting, bashers still post crappy comments. *sigh* Anyways, as ive said earlier, for me its alright to wait a month or two for the update, just make it sure that they cater to what we expect them to do on the update. Much better if they surprise us with positive feature we didn't expect it to have. All they have to do is listen to us consumers and the game between iOS, Wp and Droid would get much more exciting. :D

What Micro$oft have found I bet, that the single core can't handle it so goes laggy.

They hope people forget and just like android instead with Win8 launcher .

S3 note 2, still waiting for the update.


Android o.s is by far the worst o.s out of all. Windows is kinda boring, but it works real well. In one year, after May of 2013 your S3 will not be able to take any new android updates as google, only gave it a 1 year time period for upgrades for any of their phones. Cash grabbing Google wants you guys to buy new phones more frequently.

It's just kinda tiring, MIcrosoft is driving up the hype in regards to this new o.s by announcing it so early, but don't have a release date yet.

Apple. IOS6 announced. released in 7 days.

Fool me once, chame on me, fool me twice, chane on you WP ... If this UI wasn't so smooth, fast, and simple, I would just sell my lumia 800 and buy an android (not so chic, and with more lags) ... I'll just have to patiently wait...whats a month or two if I've already waited 6 u.u ... By the way, I love GSM arena, best site for phone lovers ever ;)
