As a Lumia user I can tell that is a pretty decent OS, and let's not forget that IOS is at his 6th version, Droid , the hell knows, but WP is at the very beginning.
on the other hand WP it at only his second version with 2 major upgrades, it's a beginner only, and has lot to learn. using parallel droid ( gingerbread and ics), I still prefer my good old wp7.8, it's just more smoother, easier to use, has enough apps . this market comparison is stupid, yes playstore has many good apps, but many many idiotic, on the other hand wp market has fever idiotic, and still growing. OO and let's not forget, I don't need 20cores and 10 gpus to run smooth, and my battery holds twice as much as my 2 other droids. And if Nokia considers WP a good OS for their devices, it means they know a little bit more than kids level droid fanboys, and ios boys. A phone doesn't exists only for facebook and instagramm.
LoveAndroid, 28 Mar 2013LOL....
Well, I remember how WP fans saying that WP will never need multicores when release... moreAs I said, an immature kid will remain an immature kid no matter what. Hide yo wife hide yo kids...
I AGAIN do not need to brief myself so be happy with all the cr@p you wrote, not worth my time reading it. More than half is just because of panic, frustration and the rest is a result of having absolutely no knowledge. Good joke kiddo.
This is the same type of news as that saying that Surface Pro sold out. It did, but later we found out that MSsold only 400.000 of them in one month. Now I bet these markets include North Korea, Somalia and countries you rarely hear about. Oh, and for sure countries where Apple products are not sold officially.
And other central european countries
killer droid, 28 Mar 2013Sorry but since the fake picture from nokia I can't believes blindly what ever Microsoft or No... moreWhat fake pictures are you saying? You don't need advertising to find out that it's the best camera smartphone right now. Read the Lumia 920 camera shootout with other smartphones. There's plenty of them.
Oncom, 28 Mar 2013No FM radio.The next firmware update will enable the FM radio on Lumia 920 and 820.
LoveAndroid, 28 Mar 2013LOL.... Well, I remember how WP fans saying that WP will never need multicores when release... morehey kiddo do not say about camera capability, Lumia 920 thrashed every other samrtphone in the market in terms of camera experience. You are requested to play with your droid toy and enjoy it. No one is telling you to buy a WP handset then why the hell are you misguiding people here.? In the title of this section there is no mention of Android so why are you so insecure? WP is great and those who know this would never switch to android ok. Better chill
Abe01, 28 Mar 2013Because we all know along with you, "Windows Phone 8" doesn't require gigs of Ram an... moreLOL....
Well, I remember how WP fans saying that WP will never need multicores when released. But look at Nokia now. Having multicores too eh? Never say never my friend.
WP does not need so much CPU power now is because it is not even powerful enough to match Android. Android are now beginning to run on Full HD phones while WP is still in its infancy. Look at how S4 and Sony Z utilizes their camera dept for all the interesting photography functions. Windows Phone camera does not even have the simple thing called Timer in its camera dept. What a joke! Even panorama and burst shots requires external applications to be installed.
Android may be lag in certain times. But frankly speaking, it is not to the extend that the phone is unusable. Even PC requires loading times and PC OS are not powerful? Whatever malware, sudden shutdown, etc is not even happening to me and my friends around who are using Android. On the other hand, I do read about how Nokia 920 having random roboots now and then. So much for stability. And you know what, I have experienced apps crashing out on my Lumia 820. And it just throw me back onto the Start screen just like that, without informing the user that the app has crashed and submit a crash report??? Now that is really "user friendly" indeed!
WP can never be as flexible as Android because MS does not want it to be. And because of this, it can never be as powerful and multitasking just like Android. And that's why Windows Phone uses lesser resources as compared to the Android OS.
killer droid, 28 Mar 2013Your are going to wait a long time lolBecause we all know along with you, "Windows Phone 8" doesn't require gigs of Ram and octa cores to run smoothly/lag free. Just on less resources Windows can perform godly. Why would they waste "soo" much resources when their OS can run on just lower resources the best?
For future reference "Your are going to wait a long time lol" - Let me tell you something kid, the reason why we have to wait long time is because currently Windows Phone can run great on mid spec, high end spec like s4. May be in future when the OS will be fully loaded with 'the best there is' features. For now, that ain't gonna happen boy. Windows Phone user already know well why they don't need octa cores and other gigs of ram so they can use their cells smoothly.
May be Nokia, just to make kids like you happy would announce a phone which consists of many core(s) and gigs of Ram but as I said there is no need for that. If they will make it, the purpose would be just to make "kids" like you happy.
killer droid, 28 Mar 2013Sorry but since the fake picture from nokia I can't believes blindly what ever Microsoft or No... moreSo much hate in you boy? I see why. Does it is as a result of frustration that WP is taking the market shares and slowly rising up again or just you have no life and enjoys trolling?
WP 8 is the better than Lagdroid. I like Apple OS but WP then Ios. Android, I don't think I will every try that OS when my cousin experienced some malware apps, crashes, bugs, freeze, instant shutdown etc. There are other things which I don't highlight. S4.. Doesn't matter how much hardware they put, lagdroid will always be lagdroid.
I don't insult or troll on other OS forums but when I see people like you, sorry "kids" like you, I can't control myself on replying to such idiotic comments. No matter what you say kid, I will always be a Windows Phone 8 fan and how much good hardware Android OS will be running on, I am not going to buy it.
Idp said that wp will dominate and beat ios even android in their previous article, but until now i still dont see any great penetration from wp, indeed android is.just getting stronger and stronger especially samsung. So i dont take it to much what idC, said
Globetrekker, 28 Mar 2013Let's be honest, if Nokia and/or WP8 is not good enough, all those haters would not even bothe... moreBecuse it is Nokia. Nokia has always sold well their devices regardless of what OSes they pick (whether it is Symbian, S40, S60, MeeGo, WP, or anything..). Just name any OS and they will be great in NOKIA.
NOKIA = Beautiful design & good materials
NOKIA = Great built Quality and durability & Long lasting life
NOKIA = Customer support Satisfaction & Guaranty OS Updates
LoveAndroid, 28 Mar 20131. Only limited 5 notification place holders on the lock screen.
2. One will need to pin app ... moreWell said WP is so limited. Don't believes this news it's another lies from Microsoft/nokia.
Don't forget the unlimited customization possibility of android.
Back at times when Windows Mobile ruled the world with it's troops gang (O2, Dopod/HTC, Gigabite, Asus, Acer, etc). My big bro and my uncles and auties were very proud with their PDAs, there are time when they jumped in joy when PDA offered telephony feature to their stylus-ed, SD card enabled and ratateable big screen. With the second-hand Nokia 8800 and Erricson T60 on my hands, trembled I hated being a kid at mo.
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2013What exactly is the limitation of wp8?1. Only limited 5 notification place holders on the lock screen.
2. One will need to pin app tiles in order to see new happenings. Else you will not even know that something happened
3. Can't attach more than 1 office documents to a single email. You can only attach office documents from Office hub.
4. Very limited file types when attaching files to emails.
5. Limited file types when sharing files onto the cloud services.
6. No multiple volume controls - a master sound volume for all alerts.
7. No file manager - unable to move files to sd card like Android.
8. Can't create music play list on the phone. Also we cannot play music by folders.
9. Files transferring is only limited to USB only. Not via wifi even on the same network.
10. Not much file operations - no zips or rar allowed.
11. Limited video codec supports.
12. Facebook app is very bad compared to other official Facebook app on other platforms
13. People Hub does not support sharing of posts, nor you will know who are the people who likes a post
14. Unable to browse friends photo albums in People Hub directly. Will need to go to Picture hub and search for the album.
15. Lousy mapping system. Even Nokia maps is not as detailed as Google maps.
Lots more.... But I think these will be enough.
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2013What exactly is the limitation of wp8?no customize for home screen. Also no apps and no games. Tiles UI hurting my eyes, boring.
