You can't tell me how the multi-window makes you production and you come here to tell me how windows rt fails at making use of it, are you serious? Where doesn't something like that makes more sense on a 5,5 inch or on a 10,6 inch? If you can't answer my question, i'm done here.

This just shows that many of you guys don't even take what others are saying seriously, you don't even consider their opinion if it doesn't conform with you way of thinking. Fact Googlemaps need data connection to work, fact you have to pay high data rates if you are abroad or buy an extra navi. This is not the case with Nokia maps, take it or leave it.

Can you tell me how copying Microsoft's multi-screen solution and implementing it on hand held is being innovative? How does opening 2 windows on a small screen makes you 10x more productive, just curious? I sort of don't see any situation that will make me more productive by reducing the size of my already small screen. Ok a more direct question in what way has the multi-screen made you more productive?

"wearing a glove - depends on the location of the user" - I just said that, what's your point?

"google maps - yes it is absolutely free" - quote from GSMA "Note that there's a limit to the size of the area you can cache - you can't just make all of Europe available offline, not even a whole country" - how is this gonna help me if I want to go in my country not to mention others + roaming costs, we have differennt understandings about "free":)

and your last point - I won't even bother, in fact do you have a point or just trolling arround?

Name one or your comment is invalid. Do you even understand the word innovation? Or are you just using it cause everyone is using that overuse term? Or is the lagginess of the android your supposed innovation? And yes I have used an android phone, thank you.

"S3 also have free google map with voice navigation too. So what's special?"...are you sure about that "free" word?
"I don't see any different in terms of video and photo quality between lumia and S3" - there are plenty of comparisons in which Nokia's optical stabilization clearly makes a difference not to mention low light pictures.
just enjoy your phone but don't trash others just because they are better in other areas, your S3 may be perfect for you but it's not a perfect phone:)

I have never bought an iphone and i don't plan to in the near futur. I have even said in one of my post here that wp8 is incomplete so how is that being hypocritical? I have never said my l920 is the ultimate device but it suits my needs best at the moment. Tell me an android phone that, you can use with gloves on in this cold winter, has worldwide offline maps and makes videos and night photos as good as the l920 and i will see my l920 in a heartbeat and buy it. Everyone has things he or she considers when buying a phone, i initially wanted to get ativ s but the above mentioned features made me choose the l920 and another thing when i trun on nokia maps it takes only 8 seconds to locate me and that while being in my room.

I don't know it seem you haven't even used Wp before or at least not one from nokia or else you would have known that you don't need data connection for nokia maps cos you can download the map of the whole world on your phone while with googlemaps, you would need to pay high data prices abroad. Get it? Another thing just cos you have to take off your gloves the whole time when it is dam cold doesn't mean everyone has to do so if they can get devices that work with gloves on. Isn't it funny, you talk about googlemaps that needs data connection to work worldwide but then come back and talk about sd card forgetting that you have cloud storage. The only times i find sd cards reasonable is if i can remove them without popping off the back cover of my phone or else it would be easier and faster just to use the usb connection. Get it? I think about overall usage before getting my phone and you can tell me all you want but there is no perfect device. Another thing how blind can you be? I mean going as far as saying you don't see the difference between the videos and night photos made by the l920 and sgs3 come on, thats going too far. Anyone that makes such a comment is either blind, ignorant or a lair sorry to say.

The point here is not that i am against buying a rubber case but you guys seem not to realize you are forced to buy a rubber case cos your phone is trashed once it falls to the ground without it and even with it if you're unlucky the display might get trashed. My point why must i be forced to use those cases? You guys like talking about freedom so now where is your freedom. I mean i can at least expect my 500 euro + phone to survive a few drops and not get trashed after only one drop.

If you can pay for a smart phone, why can't you save 3 more dollars to buy a rubber casing?
