z, 14 Jul 2013what lag? what force close? what restart?
enjoy your limited phoneI had the SG3, simply the interface aka Touchwiz made the things worst, over the time the phone was almost unusable, the lag... Then frequent restarts and apps crashing. Then i was force to install a custom rom with stock Android... I paid like $500 to make the phone usable by my self?
So, yes i enjoy a limited phone that works out the box fluid and smoothly, like the Lumia 920 i bought half year ago, no more hassle with rooting, looking installing custom roms.
Yes i like a lot my "limited" phone.
Why should we buy something in the future like Blue, while we could buy the samething already available now in Android..? Just buy Android now and we talk about WP later when it became mature in 2 or 3 years to come.
sgodsell, 13 Jul 2013Its funny how WP and its users say WP is fast enough and doesn't need quad core, but now here ... more"Now the world knows that WP could NEVER do the same things that any quad core android can do"
Yeah, it won't lag, force close the apps and random restart. Also no malware and fake apps full of spam.
Enjoy your customs roms.
My galaxy ace lags as hell , going to buy a windows phone as my upgrade and i dont have money to waste on high end phones :)
probably lumia 520.
With all these so called improvements one improvement for me which I consider very important is personalisation in the form of being able to use mp3s as ringtones for voice calls and for text message tones direct from the phones micro sd card rather than having to cut an mp3 down which is so 1990s. Any Android can do this with ease. Apple iphones are poor like this and need an app to do it on their phones and they need to get their act together as well.

He thinks that everything that has Samsung written on it is worth all the money in this world. I wish him Good luck with his s4zooooooooooooooooooooooooooom!

Carlos, 13 Jul 2013How will it be better than a Note 3?they cant be compared ,one is a phablet for people who love big phones,the other is for those who want a phone with the best camera in the smartphone category so they dont have to buy and carry two separate devices..
samsung fan boy, 13 Jul 2013Windows claims that they are not open sourc3 but the thruth is so many pirated apps! has enter... moreWindows mobile has so many pirated apps? That's the funniest thing i have ever heard. Look, Windows has very less applications compared to Android and all the apps in windows are quality apps whereas live wallpapers, pornographic apps, ad ware app, 10% of the apps don't even work, copy of another apps, add ons for a particular apps, one free ad supported version of a paid app etc., contribute 60% of the apps in Google play store. Google isn't strict about apps so they let any dev submit their app, whether pornographic ones or apps that looks into your privacy on the Play Store. A vulnerability in Android let apps to be modified by anyone which may led your privacy to be explored. When it comes to piracy, Android is number one. A pirated apps can be installed on Android phone from some third party site which may have been modified by some hacker and will only cause your privacy to be explored by that particular hacker. Windows don't allow piracy and they check every app just after it's been submitted by a dev and then they allow apps to be on the Windows market place. Meanwhile, Windows mobile OS is ahead of Android and many other OS in terms of security. Before you try to bash Windows, please do some research on malwares.
Windows claims that they are not open sourc3 but the thruth is so many pirated apps! has enter to windows. So be a user windows don`t a news reader. I am talking to much to school kids not pro user. All the apps in droids contributes sales even they are craps. Craps that contributes money is a gold. See you news reader
Microsoft should partner up with Samsung to make wp8 devices with advanced hardware. At present all the wp8s have poor hardware.

Android has a lot of apps, that's right but most of the apps on Android are live wallpapers, copy of another apps, pornographic apps, adwares apps that doesn't work but only ports ads on your droid and add ons for an apps. That's all.
