NOTE 3 RULES, 14 Aug 2013poor people can say only these things when they have nothing to say or defend the loss of thei... moreDoesn't matter what you think, but i am not a fanboy of any company or OS. I used to have Samsung Galaxy Y, my first Android phone which i just bought for checking out the user experience. It lagged when opening dialer, contact, gallery, camera, email applications and opening three or four applications for multi-tasking would slow the system and had a worse battery backup and these things are still there in each and every Samsung phone which has TouchWiz UI and Android OS. I bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 after that and it had same issues. Then tried a LG Optimus L9, it had the same issues but the lag wasn't more prominent on it than Samsung phones i used. Bought an HTC One X+, it doesn't lag much but has very poor battery backup. Android OS is damn resource hungry. It's true cheap Android phones lag a lot due to which the user experience is ruined. iOS, on the other hand, doesn't lag, excluding the first to fourth iPhone. It's smooth but has many restrictions. As your name suggests that you're a Samsung fanboy, you wouldn't understand what i said simply because you can't digest the bitter truth. Trust me or not, TouchWiz UI is buggy due to which all Samsung Galaxy phones lag, be it S4 or Note II.
I255B, 14 Aug 2013$150 i can get Chinese android with good spec Quadcore mediatek + qHD + 1GB ram + JB OS + Mor... moreThat's right. You can get a good Chinese Android phone in $150 with MediaTek dual core processor which gets beaten by a single core Qualcomm processors and those so called MediaTek quad core processors which has a performance of a dual core A9 processor. qHD display but still colors look washed out on it? Poor built quality? It can hardly last 4-6 months? That's the story with cheap Chinese Android phones that comes for 150$. Yeah it can run smooth for some time but there will be frequent crashes and this not working and that not working after a while.
that's how the former giant falls, face flat and on both knees.
it was good for the old days.
Gelvin, 14 Aug 2013Those who don't like Smartphones much and only prefer calling and messaging from their phones.... moreThey arent doing heavy task at all, like i said they're just a casual user who play games like candy crusher, or Flicking their facebook's newsfeed Etc.,
I don't want to remember that old symbian days .I always have problems with that crap operating system. Continously have software problems. Old nokia basic phone price is really ridiculous. Android is best ever mobile operating system no doubt about it. Complete freedom and highly customisable , , that's why I like android .Thanks for Samsung and sony for giving power full mobiles (smartphone).Nokia still cheating with another crap windows operating system.

Everything runs smoothly
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2013" Google's OS holds 79% of the smartphoen market share for Q2 2013, according to Gartner.... moreIt's the price you pay to have a basic smartphone that, although basic, can still run practically all apps that the flagships can. Not as comfortably, but they can.
Hardware limitations aside, these are the same system, and that's one of the reasons that make Android so compelling. Choices for many, and yet the same foundation.
i think this type of tech news are just another marketing gimmick for the masses where any individual who is reading this stuff might think his phone/gadget is obsolete for various reasons and so purchasing a new phone would seem a good idea.. for those interested just do a google search on this ebook "How to lie with statistics by Darrell Huff" and another search on wikipedia and read the article about Planned obsolescence ... by the way i still believe symbian is the best :P peace all
Come on, he simply said that cheap Android phones lag, not the expensive ones. Is that not true?
Gelvin, 14 Aug 2013Those who don't like Smartphones much and only prefer calling and messaging from their phones.... moreSays a lot about the 920, it's not really "there" yet, especially the OS but also the apps, many of them remind me of simple old Symbian apps, makes you go "is this all??".
I don't use PC much now, neither does any other adults in the household, a big powerful smartphone like Xperia Z and S4 can do so much, comfortably. Even some slower low res phones like Note 2 and Galaxy Mega are better than PC in many ways. Tablets however i dont find useful, have an ok 10 incher in the house, no-one is using it, we should have a Huawei Mate 6.1 instead, nice "stay at home" device.
Big powerful android phone with chrome browser and some good apps, that's what home users need the most.
WLam, 14 Aug 2013Even though Smartphones are outselling feature phones. Some of us still prefer feature phones.... moreI agree. I am after a feature phone and I'm willing to pay decent amount for it - only if it has Nokia E51 build qualities with a modern battery because I know it will last for many years.
Even though Smartphones are outselling feature phones. Some of us still prefer feature phones.
However, no one is bridging the gap. You either have a choice of fully touchscreen Android or a feature phone. But there is no Android phone which is a hybrid touchscreen with dialpad / keyboard like the old Symbian based Sony Ericson P990i.
Look at the choices:
Xperia (mini) pro - no longer made (annoying turn phone for keyboard)
Motorola pro+ - MB632 - no longer made. Good phone, keyboard could be better - can't run BBC iPlayer
Samsung Y Pro - good keyboards - screen too small - useless - can't run BBC iPlayer.
They sell better hybrid in the USA, not a single hybrid is available in the UK.
feature phones are always good at battery when compared to smartphones which is a must for a phone .what is the reason of using a smartphone when you cannot call a person due to low battery which is a primary use of a phone.
This news makes me so sad. I'm blaming Android for Nokia's decline. Android keeps stealing Nokia's marketshare.

About as exclusive as a cheap grey t-shirt with a Nike tick on it.

I'm glad I did. ^_^
WP phones does not have clear upgrade path and it is unlikely that low or even mid range Lumia;s will get future upgrades , at least in Android phone all companies provide some updates minor or major , i have used omnia w in past , WP is poor mans ios seriously lacking in Apps and features . Android is wild jungle depends how intelligent user is to survive
