And i dont get anything extra with 7.8, it is pure ditching nothing else. MS i pray to god that ur future windows phone OS is a big time flop.

Working perfect but after updating one has to reset the phone (format) to make the update work.

Fixes: Now all contacts from outlook (Hotmail) can be fetched.
Live tiles working perfect & updating on time

What speed what update? This nonsense has gone on for months from NokiSoft.

As the other reviewers have pointed out: Give us back MeeGo support.

Granted, Androop is awful, WP is a muh better experience, but MeeGo trumped them all.

And still no update for 7.8 in North America. Will keep trying.

Who cares about WP 7.8?
it belongs to history!
Just the ability to resize the ugly tiles..nothing from WP8 new features.
people who bought the devices are left in the border of the road.

Microsoft is sleeping and is using Nokia to drag their greedy a**es while doing so. Oh Nokia, just wake up please and give us MeeGo and Symbian back. Do to them what you did for Microsoft. You would have been on top by now...

Just started this update on my LUMIA 800.Already had 7.8,Need to check on bug fixes.Placed all my apps on the home screen,Scrolling was not smooth earlier and same after the update.It would be good if MS or Nokia had shared some note on the bug fixes.I don't see any new things added from old 7.8 release.
