Excuse me, didn't the Mango version solve the issue about the custom ring tones?

This review mentions you cannot customize them. Does anybody know for sure if this is true?

When oh when will you be posting your Lumia 800 review? Am upgrading next week (UK), had a play with a demo model (active) in a shop and fell in love, but would love to hear you guys' opinions, you do good reviews on the whole. Agree with the points made about Flash though, hat noise you hear is not Jobs spinning in his grace, he's doing cartwheels.

Main Disadvantage:

No Flash (nor Silverlight) support in the browser


What??? Flash for mobile is DEAD!!! It is not a disadvantage. Silverlight will also be discontinued by Microsoft for HTML5. GSMArena should take this away in their reviews. You're talking about dead technology!

Since the introduction of smartphones (Palm, WM, Symbian), the only real smartphone revolution was the introduction of the iPhone, love it or hate it.

Android is open-source and "unlocked" so that's the reason that it got plenty of malwares. And I'm sure that Windows Phone hardware restrictiosn makes it MUCH more efficient than Android. You can see that most Android out there are pretty laggy when Windows Phone 7 is smooth 100% of the time even with "dated" CPUs.
The only change that Android made to the industry is the ability to every manufactures use it freely. It isn't by any means a original OS. Android is like a copy or iOS (menu estructure and simplicity), Symbian (functionality and multi-tasking) and Maemo (home-screen and widgets). There's nothing original about it.

Seriously what are people sugesting in microsofts suggestion box? Theres not much improovement. Still no flash(developement been canceled but 90% of sites still runn flash) No bluettoh transfers , no USB Mass storage (was usb OTC implemented yet?), You need shity zune for transfers .

I mean look at android ..
everything is unlocked , the phone uses every hardware component to the max , is compatible with everything and it leaves room for a variety of hardware. I bet if there were no android we would still be stuck with shity 600 mhz procesors in our phones and low quality iPhones.An d we would still use PDA's with windows 6.something.

Android pushed evolution and is continuing to push it. Everything new comes first to android then gets implemented in other os's .Restrictions restrict evolution.

All you iPhone lovers , windows phone lovers should be gratefull to android for evertyhing you have now. One simple OS changed an entire industry.

But the 8 gb hard drive is not for me, so I just got the Focus S, which disappointed me on the sound quality. I may return it when the HTC Titan comes out if it sounds as good as my iPhone 4 and Galaxy S2.
