I say find out other options other than Whatsapp. But Chrome is developed by Google (I hope) and Android also and still it is the most lagging OS on the android system. So please answer with proper logic...

I dont care who develops the apps, when I am using an OS i need the apps which i use daily to work properly. Whether MS forces whatsapp to build a solid app or whatsapp itself builds a solid app ..i dont care, Whatsapp may not care because it knows that the user base is very less and hence will not build a super quality app.
U find only a few very good apps in MS marketplace . fro example, flixter, LinkedIn, IMDB, and there are few more.
Android also has issues i dont disagree with that, but atleast it has features too .. so that will compensate. I prefer to choose a OS which crashes once a while but has amzing features over a OS which is smooth but u cannot do anything on the phone.

Now that we are clear about the 7.8 upgrade, why doesnt GSMARENA mention about those phones in the article??

why only about Nokia phones, the buyer of samsung omnia or HTC titan might be eagerly waiting the same way as the Nokia user. why not acknowledge them and put a line in the article?

Thank god i sold my Nokia Lumia 610 and bought Samsung Galaxy Grand...

Now i am very happy... With my purchase.

Fcckk Microsoft and is so called beta operating system.

And Nokia you are such a big fool that you selected windows phone rather than android.

You would have been shining on the seven sky today if you would have went for Android.

I am very sorry Nokia... Forgive me for selling Lumia but i still use your E71 from past 4 years :) and will continue to do so forever... Its still the best phone ever.

But now things have changed - Hail Samsung Galaxy Grand...

Its awesome :)

hahaha... so much for samsung bashers and lumia loyalists..what will you do with them now...?Microsoft will be the nemesis of nokia.true..android may be complex but the greatest virtue comes to the fore now.It's free and not bound to the whim of a single manufacturer...You don't release an update and your phone is dead in the market.Other manufacturers will overtake you...Nokia is being taken for a ride by the Apple and MS..

I use Android since 2009 and yes it lagged on early editions of android 1.6 and 2.1 but in Froyo i didn't experience any lag at all on Galaxy S1.
You naive because i had Note 1 before i own S3, the stylus is so accurate in writing messages or drawing, even cropping...etc its so useful i even wished i stayed on Note 1 instead of S3 because of the stylus.

So keep this lame logo of yours "Android lags" because it doesn't, while M$ WP8 and WP7 lags like no tomorrow on Surface and Lumia devices and you can check it on Youtube or WP forum how laggy and buggy WP is. Its like an experimental OS not valid for daily use.

i hope nokia will stay with microsoft. wp 8 is excellent,simple,elegant,minimalist. my farty granma can use wp 8 with no problem, it is the only os wich she understood how to operate it. this means that wp8 and future wp9,10,etc will be very well received by the masses wich adore simple mobiles. the only problem is to populate quickly their app store with all the possible junk apps like android and ios did,and pay to the media channels to announce every month:"windows phone marketplace reaches this months xyz number of apps", and so on. they must pay for these

- stylus on a 4.8 inch screen...what is the use... i feel use of chopsticks to eat peanuts is better here! than a stylus on an android phones.
- you again ponder over whatsapp...a third party app... microsoft doesnt develop it... ask whatsapp developers...!
- i have been using windows phones for the last 2 years including the latest one and I have jelly bean android tablet... i know which stutters and restarts and crashes...!
- i dont demean android... it is the best multimedia friendly os available... but not that all great. It just fills space, when other OSes didnt. But now you have great options. If others want to try...thats not your business !

> In reply to OMG @ 2013-03-09 06:05 from YcRm - click to reads3 is a flagship .. it has 4.8 inch screen, many other features like pop up video, browser, multi window, s-note. this makes it a flagship device, its unique from Samsung family.

...the above confirms you are indeed an sammy andy combo fanboy... confirming your cheap marketing tricks! rest of all your arguments is dumb ! kindly write about android of the features which you felt as a disadvantage in windows 8. In one word...simply tell... i have not used...and I dont know about WP...and Im a painted android user and I like bashing WP !!! this is sufficient for us to understand!
