With so many brands on the market that care much more for their costumers, who would care for LG?

There is no such thing as a single core Snapdragon S4. That's why there is no single core on WP8. My Nexus 4 with Jelly Bean 4.2.1 is still not smoother than my iPhone 4S and my Lumia 920.

That's smarter than Android where every app runs in background, even malwares, carrier bloatware apps, and rouge apps run in background on Android.

I own a LG C900 what has absolutely no update since WP 7.5 release and I plano to never more have any smartphone from LG because they don't care about their customer and their product is really pour in terms of quality and especially finish. With so many great options like Nokia, Samsung and HTC why buy from a LG that plays on/off with customer care?

Even Asus announced it is interested in WP.

Android fanboys can continue living in denial, the WP wave is coming.

Not sure why any person in thete right mind find this operating system decent.Ugly boring and uncustomisable.Those 70s disco tiles aint fooling no one.

LG phones are not to impress anyone even powered by Android.They do,nt have marketing power as Apple and samsung phones.Here in Pakistan first the high end LG phones are hard to find.If found the re-sell is very poor.
