Anonymous, 28 Apr 2013Jelly bean has everything that iOS can only dream of. Android can dream of what IOS has when Iphone got jailbroken Lol.
Everytime someone goes to GSMArena to read comments/feedback about any phone, they get a huge dose of Nokia/WP promotions which they don't care about (or else they would have gone to the Nokia thread). Pathetic and desperate!
Criticisms of android are fine. It helps the developers know the problems (or public perception).
BUT these Nokia/WP fans are totally crazy. They hijack any thread on iOS, Android or any other brand (Samsung, Apple, Sony, HTC, etc.) just to get their stupid brand in the limelight. It's pathetic! Microsoft has never shown any good on mobile devices, and Nokia is now just a glamorized dumbphone (no apps). If they're good now, then let the people decide (just like Apple and Android developed their market). Stop hijacking other threads where people want to hear about other phones pros and cons, and not about Nokia or WP. You're just making NOKIA and WP look very desperate, to resort to something like this

Whatever be the android version,i just want a smooth experience without lags(something at which google feels handicapped).andy can only be managed by mighty s4,but at the lower low end,it is too slow.just comparing 2 cheapest lumia >520,galaxy duos and other droids in the same price range feel like shit.wp is hot and surprisingly faster than any droid in its competition.i hope google does something to make android lightweight like wp8 in 5.0.i can wait one year more,if lags are adressed completely.

Why are y here just go back to your 5 year old unchangeable and boring idevice.
Which is not soo bad but soo boring after 5 year of usage.
Droided, 28 Apr 2013Lag has been a lie in android since 2.1 WP8 is now considered the laggy OSreally cause WP is optimized OS same with IOS have you heard of it?
Too much for the Gawker Group of Misinformation parts-lickers. It was pretty obvious it was going to keep in the 4.x line, but they kept crying "NOO, IT'S 5.0!".
In their face.
Again why are there Nokia fanboys here. This is and Android forum. Nokia is dying go to your own phone news.
Lag has been a lie in android since 2.1
WP8 is now considered the laggy OS
Android 4.3 will promote three best Android features even better (force close, battery full, and factory reset). Users can still have scrolling lag and occasional lag.

Oh My, 27 Apr 2013Same reason ICS sucks. it has a higher hardware requirement than GB, then along came JB, with ... moreI run JB 4.1.2 on 1ghz dual core, single core mali 400 gpu along with 768mb ram. its the best virsion of androud to me so far.
I had 555mb usable ram on GB 2.3.6 n now with JB i have 629.9mb.
JB performs better than GB or froyo on my gti9000 with 512 mb ram powerVR gpu n 1ghz single core cortex v7 cpu.
to get best performance on ur phone; root ur phone n update superuser app n update busybox files using titanium back up and dont forget to add "debug.sf.hw=1" on ur JB build.prop file.
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2013So? Whilst I agree, the software "numbers" don't mean anything iOS versions could go... moreNo offending, but I think you didn't get what I mean, the "numbering" things is known as "software versioning". This technique is a standard in software industry which is recognized and widely used in software industry to assign either unique version names or unique version numbers to unique states of a software and it is used in EVERY SOFTWARE like your web-browser, game, Photoshop, Microsoft office and etc.
What I mean is that the Android versioning is defined in a proper way (I did see significant change between GB/2.x and ICS/4.0, while minor change between ICS/4.0 and JB/4.1) while IOS does not (in my opinion), which I do not find any significant/major enhancement/modification/upgrade between IOS-4,5 and 6.
Anyway, this is just my thought.... :D

I'd say pretty much any droid you listed will do an more than etiquette job.
