Amazon cuts prices on 8X and Lumia 920 even further - read the full textAmazon has gotten pretty aggressive with the price cuts for Windows Phone 8 handsets.

Furthermore, you dont become bankrupt by selling lumia, as you lose nothing if it is returned. It is for Nokia's account and for you to claim liability of returned sales (a small profit margin). Dont teach me business or tell me on how many dollars, euros you lose per returned phone. Also if you are selling Samsung phones like hotcakes and millions, why are you angry with Nokia lumia. Come on, you are a business man and just couldnt balance commodities? This shows you are an Android fan...I presume, a Samsung Android fan...which ofcourse you will obviously deny!

Still not worth it. I had a 920 for about 2 weeks and took it back. There is a design flaw with the vibrate function: The phone rattles more than vibrates and it sounds distinctly cheap. Not all phones have this but enough do - search online and you will see. Another common problem is the yellow screen: I went from an iPhone 4 to the 920 and the yellowing of web pages was noticeable and ugly. I much preferred the colder and whiter screen of the iPhone. Then there is the bulk and weight, and more importantly the lack of Aps, specifically one to control my car (Chevy volt) and many others like Pandora.

On top of all of this is Nokia which is hanging by a thread and couldn't keep up with production: my wife was waiting for more than a month for the yellow 920 and charger so we just returned mine, canceled hers, and jumped to Android and Verizon with the HTC DNA. Beautiful phone, bigger and better screen that is the currently the best of all phones. The DNA looks great and is much thinner and lighter than the 920 and pretty much any App that I had with the iPhone I can get on Android (though I might have to pay again).

Nice try but don’t believe the hype.

Android is a high maintenance OS. It glitches daily. On iPhones and WP8, you never need reboot unless you have a OS update. I have had many Android phones. So I know this.

I understand that iOS and WP have a better reputation when it comes to overall security and reliability, but to say that ALL Android devices NEED a factory reset EVERY month is ridiculous, the only reason why iOS and WP are considered more reliable is because these OSs are Sandboxed in when it comes to installing applications. Android doesnt have any of that, so therefore lets you have more control over your device and how it works, much like any PC. If you treat it with respect and a modicum of caution you will find that it can be as, if not more stable than any iPhone. And judging by Apples current habit of throwing new devices out every 5 minuites, may actually last you longer aswell.

JellyBean made Android smooth as baby's ass. WP8 is smooth as well and iOS is smooth cause it has virtually no multitasking. You swipe on an iPhone's home screen and the OS gives 100% priority in rendering the swype, all other tasks are put to a full stop.

windows 7.5 , 8 are owsomeee

android is popular becoz of the play store
android doesnt have a standard as android can be found in chinese devices ranging from 4000
and lastly android hardware is good not the best if they have dual or quadcore that doesnt mean they are best it totally depend upon the clock speed of processor which is half of the processor as said by intel and interface of android really sucks!

windows and ios are best in terms of processor if u want to see the hardware of windows then see the 1.5 ghz qualcomm processor u will find it best
and the interface is cool , easy ,fast and u will love it

All I need is modern OS, some compulsory applications, very good build phone that doesn't break, high quality camera. If the phone deliver me those, I really don't bother it has 1,2 or 3 cores. I don't think number of cores the processor has any thing to do with how I use my phone and my user experience at all.

A Samsung Galaxy 3 (Not the Siii.) Huawei 8650, and this Pantech Burst. While not perfect, they never needed hard resets due to anything other than my shenanigans with modding, etc. The beauty of Android is summed up in being available. VERY cost effective. And from my perspective, watching thousands of passer by here in New York. And many more in Spain, Germany, Morocco, and Portugal is this... Android has brought the handheld phone, and Computing to the masses. Say it any way you want, but that is a very noble challenge.... Met!!

For that amount of money you usually get a specific amount of minutes, SMSs and Internet. Each carrier has several kinds of contracts depending on the user needs (more minutes, SMS or Internet) priced differently. Those contracts also includes a phone. If you get a high feature contract it may be more expensive but it'd give you a better phone. There are phones that may not be free even on a high feature contract due to its high price in the local market so you'd need to get either a more expensive contract or pay an extra difference to get that phone. That price difference would only be paid once (for example the 40 bucks they're asking for the L920) so from the second month onwards you'd only pay the 20 bucks or whichever monthly amount from your contract. If you want to cancel your contract before its end you usually have to pay a penalty (several months of the contract) . Then you can keep your device but it won't get service until you get another working SIM card.

Takes about the same amount of time as making a cup of coffee.I Consider just normal maintenance like when you defag your computer, or delete temporary files.

Android 5.1 will have you running back in fear.

I have a Nexus 4, Lumia 920, iPhone 4S, and five other Android phones. Nexus 4 is still not as smooth as the Lumia 920 and iPhone 4S. It still is buggy like any Android phone. WP8 and iOS are way more reliable. Proof that I have a Nexus 4.

Youve got to be joking right? Android doesnt need a factory reset every month! Ive never had to reset to get back up to speed. Also my mum uses Android and loves it for all the people who say its complicated speak to my 48 year old mum and ask her whats easier to use iphone or android
