I read some coments here and i wonder wtf WP users atualy USE their phones for? All this boasting about smoothness, is that al you do, flip around in the UI?

I have tried a ZTE Blade, low end android, not smooth at all and not fast, but it was a nice user experience, no problems. Would smoothness make it any better? Theres nothing wrong with android and you guys know it, its pathetic how you keep trolling about smoothness, i have tried WP8 and it was NOT a nice experience, it was pure annoying, waiting for those slow animations to hide the lag behind, having to always watch and wait for the sirup-lubricated animations destroys the whole experience, and you call it smoothness, well... It doesnt even accept input while animating its slowness.

I just wish that my iPhone be thrown away by the VP of Nokia and replace it with a lumia, just like what he did in a live show :)

You all saying WP is limited? Then how about iOS? Restricting? Can't even sync in other PC's with iTunes without messing your stuff? Can't even bluetooth to other smartphones? I own an iPhone 4 so I can say this. I also tried iPhone 5 that much and to think that it hasn't much changed. Yes android is so laggy, most of the time my friends galaxy w (1.4gHz, 512ram) and galaxy S (1gHz, 512ram) performs poorly than my iPhone 4 (1gHz, 512ram). To think that these phones are released on the same era.

How can I say android is laggy?

**temple run, subway surf and other games are having "choppy" graphics, lags and SOMETIMES force crashes.
**going back to home screen takes about 2 seconds (about 3-5 seconds for the galaxy s, 10gb used, 16gb version), to think that the galaxy w has only consumed 1/3 of its free space and ram.


Please Nokia VP, throw my iphone and replace it with even a lumia 620 :)

*bracing myself for the android fanboys' hate comments >:D

WP doesn't even feel like a smartphone OS, since it's way too simple. It's too restricted for being called as such.

Why you all are fighting? Rooney and other android users need an android handset and some of them here needs wp so what is wrong in that? Why evryone is justifying which is the best? Time changes for everyone, earlier it was Nokia+Symbian, now its Samsung+android, in future it may be wp or any other new OS. Market cannot remain consistent as it is today. So please chill out and enjoy your smartphones.

Why do you guys bother to come in WP posts pretending you know better and like you fave some facts that show what an average consumer want...I think there are 2 types of smartphone users, geeks - like us posting and commenting on blogs and non-geeks:), want to try and guess which are more? And I have never seen a girl-geek:)))(I don't like to sound misogynist), most of them just have other preoccupations:) - for them it's enough to have a simple, intuitive and easy to use phone with social apps and maybe few games(these are the girls I know at least:))...just saying, what doesn't suit you doesn't mean won't attract others no matter the disadvantages you found

Oh! And also, try not to pin anything to the start screen, and see if you do miss anything important on your phone... .hahahahahaha

And you are so into all the Windows products, fine with me too. You can own every single MS products for all I care.

But that does not change how immature Windows Phone is as compared to Android.

> In reply to LoveAndroid @ 2013-03-28 08:01 from QXPR - click to readYeah I read it before about you using 820, that was just random cr@p. You never had one.
I also saw you were claiming about owning an S3, well according to your name. I guess that is not lying at all but about a Windows Phone, that's just to develop more hate in people.
I don't need to read about how bad Windows Phone is bla bla... I am still using Windows 7 on my Alienware 18x and will hopefully upgrade to Windows 8 on my i7 3930x this Monday. I love Windows.. Your comments won't stop me from buying their products. As for the smartphones, ordered a Lumia 920 this saturday and waiting for its arrival through my cousin. Will own a Lumia 928 and the future Flagship Lumia 1000 as well.

Peace kiddo

Why can't I tell others how bad I feel about Windows Phone 8, so that others will not fall in the trap by MS, who are smoking the innocent users? Does that hit your nerves as well?

> In reply to Abe01 @ 2013-03-28 07:48 from sSPd - click to readThat's because what I said about the bad of WP is so true and hitting you right on the nerves. As also being a 820 user, I can tell the rest that I'm not smoking about the bads of WP just like how MS is trying to smoke others with the smoking campaigns.

Well, I do pity you as you have absolutely no knowledge how a true smartphone should be. Bless you.
