WP8 will work very well with the low end segment, hence Nokia's success with Lumia 520. For more expensive phones people prefer Android for a wider range of apps and games.

They should release 3 to 4 phones of all ranges
all dual sim phones
one for low range.mid range high end toooo
it should have WALKMAN with mega bass (clear bass)
sony can do 1 thing innovative in walkman by including tube sound stimulator (tube gain)
better cammera tooo

Microsoft is really bent on making the brand "Nokia" and the model "Lumia" as obsolete as possible!

It's amazing How low they can get and how low they want to take Nokia into the grave.

R.I.P Nokia!!

Any new manufacture for microsoft is good for microsoft.
I don't understand why microosoft make license fee for wp free. They have plenty of money and wp business is not so great. If they make free it doesn't effect microsoft but many many oems could produce wp and increase wp share

Ok, so about now I should be cancelling my pre-order of the Xperia Z1 Compact? I'm thinking of Sonys excellent track record of supporting "old" technology (yes, this is sarcasm).

Even though unibody, the battery life and sturdiness is excellent!

does that serve as answers and reason?

Even Sammy makes phones sometimes with bigger bezels. Even for batteries, it gives loads of endurance for the devices to take knocks. Even nokia gives a mix here... Their low ends come with accessible batteries, whereas high ends come with great battery life. Eg. Please check battery life of lumia 720 from gsmarena tests...for a 2000mah, 72 hours is a good rating.
