Note is amazing as form factor an versatility, c7 is usefull in many sense but what I saw in wp is different from both. When I use for my first time a lumia 800 I've had the sensation that the operating system and pjone itself are one. Yes I know there is only an illusion but the felling is interesting
why are they taking so much time to launch as read it on other websites it was going to launch this month that is december....:(
Mrikank, 06 Dec 2012no hotspot ??? It is present. Known as Internet sharing in WP. Specifications here are incomplete.
Cutypie, 06 Dec 2012Windows Phone Store is just a garbage of wastes. Less apps, thats acceptable but they are very... moreI agree with games. They lack on WP7.x and also quality is questionable and also most of are paid. But quality of dedicated apps (sans games) is top notch. Just compare any app, accuweather, facebook, zomato.. just for example.. 95% apps have better quality on WP than their android counterpart. Again same may be paid on WP but free on Android but quality is certainly better. Games are horrible though. But situation is improving. EA and many developers have announced many new titles for WP8. 40 xbox compatible games are coming in next couple of months alone according to announcement during WP8 launch.
Also, many people who are into technology believes that quantity of apps especially games will increase rapidly in coming days as it WP8 shares same kernel (windows NT) with its desktop counterpart (W7 and W8) and porting of code is very easy between these two platforms.

Ercelan Ensari, 06 Dec 2012Ahan! So if you are saying after these experiences then u must be right. There must be somethi... moreNo man! Theres nothing xtra ordinary on wp apps n games. Same as iOS and Android. WP8 is great and xpected not to crash while running a app like WP 7.5 devices. Yes. Many games crashed on WP 7.5 devices.
Ercelan Ensari, 06 Dec 2012I don't like IOS for the same reason. :) ah I don't like custom roms, but I would definitely t... moreYes, you can always try new things and decide. I would advice to take benefit of Nokia's one of the WP program. They had it during Lumia 800 launch and I am sure they will relaunch it when Lumia 920 is launched. Via this program, you pay full amount of phone, buy it and if not satisfied in 15 days, can return it and take 100 % money back. It was a genuine program by Nokia at authorized priority outlets.
Windows Phone Store is just a garbage of wastes. Less apps, thats acceptable but they are very very much overpriced comparing App Store and Google Play. And even the quality of those apps(mostly games) are questionable. I found every good games are paid. Not a single good game there for free! Shame on microsoft. Quality and Quantity both sucks. Top developers are completely away from WP platform, but why! Come on Gameloft, EA and others.

Currently using Lumia 710 WP. Use HTC One X of my brother many times. My experience of both platforms is based on this usages.

However,windows may have good quality apps. It is possible. I haven't used it so I can say nothing about it. Only the one who have used both OSs in depth can tell better.
Ercelan Ensari, 06 Dec 2012Thanks for sharing your experience. It means you can not much customise windows phones in UI. ... moreWP takes good care of this nature with theme accents and tiles customization. If you are looking for more than that, you can always hack a phone and do whatever. There are many third party ROM are available for WP that allow more customization than what microsoft does.
If you still want more, WP is simply not for you, not even iOS.
droid.apk.dld, 06 Dec 2012how many function a smartpjone has? 10, 15. When we talk about 700.000 app in marketplace we ... moreTotally agree with you. Its quality which is important than sheer quantity.
Dear, that is opposite of what you think. Linux is very RAM friendly but the thing is Android is a layer of a Java on the top of Linux kernel. virtualization is done to run Java code in Linux environment. Its called as Sand boxing. Google this for more info: Android java sandboxing on linux
And because of sandboxing, RAM consumption is very high. It is similar to running OS into OS through Virtualization.
That is why Android ICS consumes around 180-200 MB of RAM on low end devices and 256 MB RAM devices lags a lot because of low free RAM. When custom launchers are present like Touch wiz or Sense, situation is even worse.
WP 7 on the other hand runs on its own windows CE kernel (WP 8 also runs on native kernel of Microsoft called as windows NT kernel). It requires much less RAM because of this. WP 7.5 runs smoothly on 256 MB RAM and WP 8 will run smoothly on 512 MB RAM. HTC 8S also has same amount of RAM. Check its videos for smoothness of WP 8 on 512 MB RAM.
rabit33, 06 Dec 2012Yes, of course. There is a Windows Phone Store installed on every WP similar to Play Store on ... moreThanks for sharing your experience. It means you can not much customise windows phones in UI. U will get bored soon as it is human nature. U get bored with the same thing.
So it applies in phones. I like changings in my phone . especially UI.
how many function a smartpjone has?
10, 15. When we talk about 700.000 app in marketplace we talk in fact about variation of 15 function of an smartpjone more or less. What we could have? We have 25kapps app for gps for instance, 65kapps for camera 150kapps for browsing and so on. In my opinion the number of app in marketplace is not relevant. The quality of apps and licensing type of apps instead are relevant.
