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. About a month ago, they cut the price of two WP8 flagships, the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC Windows Phone 8X, and now they've cut them again. The Nokia Lumia 920 is now $40 with a two-year contract from AT&T (used...

Hello, I just wanted to Point out some mistakes in your "arguments".

"lumia 920 has no unique design ,it just stole the design of xperia s but a bit bigger"

Xperia S was released february 2012. Nokia N9 was released in september 2011.

"with the less impressive polycarbonate rather than the trong polycarbonate used by sony"

Wrong. Nokia uses grade 3 polycarbonate. The same material used in some helmets NASA uses. Sony uses grade 1 polycarbonate which is essentially barely more sturdy than regular plastic.

"by the way i said that both are made from polycarbonate which means if s3 is cheap lumia 920 is even cheaper"

Another ridiculous argument. How would the S3 be more expensive than the 920 when it only uses a small portion of the more expensive polycarbonate and alot of cheap plastic compared to the 920 which is all polycarbonate?

"and yeah sony phones are far better than any nokia as well as htc and samsung are even better than nokia!"

At?

"Google will keep motorola's patents for use if nokia will continue their fakes and lies and their offensive attitude like the one when announcing the new nokia lumias"

Which fakes and lies?

"we are eating jellybean this night and the most innovative os ever and their advertisement about live tiles as if there is no widgets"

This is what shows that you have NEVER used a Windows Phone. Live Tiles are not regular widgets that you download. They are actually parts of apps and they are manually created PLUS they can point to any part of any app.

"offering good ads with amazing free services is far better than them!"

What ads are good? And at what cost? Integrity means nothing for you?

"If nokia's contracts with carriers kept its high prices carriers can't do anything! But nokia cannot keep its high prices and carriers are not satisfied with nokia lumia's sales!"

I guess you have totally missed how the Samsung-phones have plummeted in price on some markets? You have completely missed that all manufacturers have had rebates during christmas? You are actually surprised about these facts?

"oh yeah by the way they use the same polycarbonate as nokia!"

No, they don't. They use grade 1 polycarbonate which is basically plastic.

"the design of the s3 and note 2 and the new nature ui are unique"

No, it is not. It's another grid of widgets and icons.

"where did apple stole the notifications bar ?? From Android"

No, from Windows Mobile 2003.

"also because of multiscreen multitasking and full hd and video screen shots "

You mean multiview, which is very unimpressive for anyone besides a total geek. WP has support for multitasking but takes the effort of closing apps out of the equations since apps in the background doesn't drain your battery. Full-HD on a 5" screen is good for...? You can extract photos out of WP-videos too. Videos are just a stream of fast photos.

"the most innovative and well built and strong phones are from Sony"

No, they are not. They are equally fragile as all other phones with large screens. The strongest phones are from Ericsson (Before it was SE and later Sony) and Xonim.

"exmor rs for low light sensor"

Which is alot worse than OIS.

"did not at all included in its fakes before because they know what it can do"

There are about 200 comparisons between the exmor and the nokia optics. All give the low-light win to Nokia.

"and 13 mp cameras ( while wp8 cannot go higher then 8mp!"

Which is a lie by the way.

"and bravia engine screens"

Which is a marketing gimmick just as retina.

"But google and sony and motorola did never sued anybody because they are not bad like you and your beloved companies"

Google, Sony and Motorola has sued other companies but haven't won many legal disputes. They have lost many though thanks to them using unlicensed technology invented by other companies.

"and also to let you remember apple only won one lawsuit and then lost all others "

Another lie. Apple has won a few lawsuits. Google, Motorola and Sony hasn't won against Apple though.


Other than that: You are almost right.

Your comment about living in a cave was awesome, you are the last person who should say something like that.

Just got two charging pads for my L920. So far wireless charging seems to be really fun feature, topping up the battery every time I set my phone down on the desk.

WP8 interface seems like a huge improvement after android. Simple, beautiful and efficient. You can fit so much information into the tiles. With widgets you needed several views full of them to get the same.

I was a Nokia die hard fan with symbian but now I am a big fan of Sony , because of their valuability and android + timescape , you are free to love or hate wp8 or android but seriously reply me if Nokia used both wp and android will they be dying as now ??

On a 24 month contract, most of the world give all high end phones away for free. Yes free. As long as the carrier service fee is at least $60 or higher.

This $40, $99, $199 upfront + contract nonsense has to stop. You're still paying the majority of the phone in your service fee. The USA gets ripped off both ways. (upfront cost PLUS high monthly fee).
