Android is just a geek OS, and iOS just a marketing product for addict... Each OS has pros and cons, just a matter of taste...

I think the dumbest thing for Nokia was to move to windows.WHY? Were U that lazy to perfect what you had? There are so many things I like about the windows os. But more than that there are so many things to hate about it too. I love the lumia phones from Nokia. The build quality is something that Nokia is always great at. I think its high time Nokia moves to android than microsuck windows poop 7.whatever.

It is fully customizable and more in the hands of open source than the other proprietary junk we call Windows and iOS. Microsuck and Apple need to go out of business and stop jerking people around.

I own it from past 11 months ..its just this stupid contract system that is holding me from changing the phone. If u feel i own android and iknow more pf android, its beacuse i am surrounded with android phones and i follow mobile phones everyday.

My lumia 900 also never crashed .. lol :):):) .. thumbs up for that :D

why do u allow cache in first place ??? Haven't u heard of incognito browsing .. just asking ????

if u are happy with what ever is ther ... happy for u, maybe u r happy because u have win phone 8, but i was never satisfied with this .. i had hopes that they will improve but there is no sign, they said there will be more apps with WP8 but i never got upgraded to WP8, WP7.8 is still not on my phone and still the app market is nothing good either and hence will change my phone. will never trust MS again. Nokia promised these features.. http://conversations.nokia.com...smartphones/
but still no news on these. Do u think i will still sit and wait till they act ?

Thats the reason i am going to switch in a month or so .. that is definite and its goin to be android as i hate ios.

It's true that past Android devices were notoriously known for lag and annoying chopiness but the latest devices like galaxy S3 ,HTC one xperia Zayn etc have eliminated considerable lag and since the jellybean update these devices have become very much lag free. Nexus7 and nexus10 are the prime examples of Android devices that have zero lag and are buttery smooth. Don't blame the OS, blame the manufacturers that put in pathetic hardware into their devices that results in a very poor operation of the OS.

if you read the amazon people's opinion about Windows 8 you'll see that most many are disappointed with Windows 8. Windows 7 was a success but Windows 8 is a failure

> In reply to OMG @ 2013-03-10 18:20 from YcRm - click to readthanks! U dont own a windows device, you tried one, but i dont know for how long. So why should you bother about whatsapp options for others. Im happy with my stock messenger what WP offers. Also i have skype and IM+ and i dont need suggestions to give to somebody who is an ardent android fan with no wp device. Regarding your choices of browsers, the stock browser is no good, thats why I tried Chrome which is surprisingly from the same one who makes this OS. One description...pathetic!!! I dont give a shit about others on browsers like you said for whatsapp! for me my stock browser is excellent ! I dont get crashes, slow down or urge to clear cache, which I never did on my WP phone. But I had to get download a cache cleaner for my android device. Now you sell a device and a host of apps to keep it stable or work consistently...wonderful...and makes my day!
Lastly...did we fight?!

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2013-03-09 23:00 from nsi$ - click to readlol .... if u find other options similar to whatsapp and that too on windows marketplace .. please let me know i will pay i 1000 dollars or may be more than that ... ROFL

if u hate chrome use the stock browser, dolphin, opera, firefox, UC browser ... see these are called options. there are no options for apps in windows marketplace and the ones available suk big time. Hence i am switching ..i tried windows phone and m not happy even though i like the UI so much..it lacks in features ..if MS really takes it seriously and be quick with updates and fixes and adds gud features may be i will try it again .but for now .. definite no. Looking at the pace of their development i doubt their future ... if u r still happy, use it i am not forcing u to switch, i am just giving out my opinion and no body is fighting with u. Trust me if u dont change ur decision for another year, i appreciate ur loyalty man hats off to u.

if u r talking about sales and stuff .. wait til end of this year when Tizen, ubuntu phones hit the market ... these low end market will be filled up with these phones, high end market will stil be with android and iphone (even thoughi am big hater of ios, have to say it because it sells no matter what), mid range will have android and windows phone is still struggling to cross that tiny 5% mark even after 2.5 years of launch. Good luck with that.

Second...

OMG! An Android fanboy again.
No, stop YOU lying when you never use Windows Phone.

Android have lags in every version, JellyBean included.

I am with a Galaxy Ace 2, is the worse sh*t I bought in my life. Dual Core CPU, 768 MB RAM, and Lags everyday.
Any Linux desktop distribution works without lags with this hardware.

What means lag? Not only the little lag in transitions but to wait some seconds to load GMail app, lags when it's syncing, when you go the desktop screen with de back button... sometimes ten seconds!

There are videos in YouTube, anyone can see the lags in Android.

I am not saying that WP is perfect. Android is more customizable and it has more features, but the user experience is very bad, and also for the system updates.

You don't use a WP in your life, don't talk about it.
