Read reviews and whatever you like, Note II has no lag, jellybean makes sure there are available resources for the UI and animations and stuff, so it will always flow fast and even, every time. Try and see for yourself, Note II is really smooth, and things happens much faster and with more advanced animations than in for example iphone. The iphone 4s appeared like it was moving in slow motion next to Note 2.

It will however be interesting to see how for example Xperia E will fare with jelly bean, a singlecore A5 at 1GHz and only 512MB RAM could be a problem. For now i think 2GB RAM and a dual S4 is minimum what Android Jellybean need to do its magic, i hear it works very well on Galaxy S3 with 1GB RAM but i doubt the 1GB could keep up for a heavy multitasking.

Speed wise, WP8>iOS>Android
Android lags after installing a few apps.

WP has never been run on so slow hardware. I have never ever used an android phone with that low performance, and i never will. Even my phone in 2009 had like twice as fast processor (Cortex A8 600MHz)

Ofcors the Ace is slow, stop those foolish arguments.

AS i said, and i was right (as usual), this phone does not meet the RAM requirements for some apps and games, go and read it yourself in the wp marketplace.

"Some apps and features won't work on phones with less than 1 GB of RAM. To see how much memory your phone has, check the manufacturer's website or your phone's documentation."

So much for "WP is not like android, it runs well on lesser hardware". Sure...

The UI on Note 2 fly with perfect smoothness, iphone 4s feels like sirup in comparison, everything is like in slow motion. Lag free on iphone4s, yes it is, but at what speed?

Your obvious lies aside, the 620 seems like a lot for the money but the RAM will be a problem, apps need RAM, lightweight OS can't magically run apps using less RAM. Symbian has already proven this to be a fact.

I think this will be the best midrange phone in the market. Price tag amazes me. I wanted to buy nexus 4 for its price tag but it is not available in india ( atleast not at the same price as in us ) so my selection narrows down to hts 8s and lumia 620 then i ll go with lumia 620 as it will be cheaper. But if mugen power could make a bigger battery for this device then it would be perfect . Any other alternative you would suggest guys? Idnt mind an android .
