The challenge here is for Droid user to try and feel the Wp Os, if it doesn't suite their needs, then fine. if they like it, well thanks. There is no need for senseless bashing and posting links. Your expirience with it would be a greater post here. :D

It's funny how people who haven't used a device make up their minds about it.
all research work but no end user experience.and to prove themselves right,always have some thoroughly searched youtube links with them.

And the worst part is lying because i have seen Galaxy Y A.K.A Galaxy POP and it doesn't lag so stop lying OKAY?
Here is a demo from GSMarena about Galaxy Y
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uylK2O00nG4
Only mini lags in loading for first time in gallery and then no lags!
You Nokia fanboys don't know anything other than lying to justify Nokia's failure.
Lumias line is a fail and the next 6 months will prove that to you!

Anything on Nokia 620, especially availability? Taking too long to launch!

Judging from the curved glass, I bet Nokia is re-using the exact display assembly from the good old Lumia 800, they just re-designed a non-unibody housing around the display.

I've used both and your entry level droid with low ram Lags alot compared to the Lumia. And about the Battery test, those are still done at their office and roughly an approximation. And haven't you read what they always say? They can't say that thier infos are 100% true. I might believe you if you have used both Gs2 and L900. But you don't. :D

Consumers must have a choice, and i'm happy to see Nokia entering into the race of smartphones with Windows mobile OS. For those trolls out there that keep saying "buy a Galaxy3 or IPhone", not everyone had the money and more importantly the NEED for a phone like that.
