Crucify, 29 Feb 2012People who bitch about windows phones not having bluetooth file transfer are either uninformed... moreDon't you know that NFC is just a pair-up technology? The actual thing working behind NFC is Bluetooth which enables 2 devices to transmit and receive data.
People who bitch about windows phones not having bluetooth file transfer are either uninformed or just dumb trolls, Im guessing the latter.. Windows supports NFC and that is the future technology that will replace bluetooth. Stop making bluetooth as an excuse to bash a platform, atleast windows has NFC not like apple who still doesnt support it. Also microsoft already announced they will have SD card support in the future versions of Windows 8.
Knowing better, 26 Feb 2012I have both an Android(Gingerbread) and Symbian(Belle) smartphones. Both have 1ghz processors... moreIn compare with N8 and WP7 indeed is abyssal no point of compare here...Nokia got the right track on WP7
now android fans define fragmentation at lower specs..... whew!!!!!!
In Marks Opinion, 25 Feb 2012You answered your own question, you don't use certain things in your phone , those of us that ... moresir as far as doing basic things on your phone ..... i think windows 7.5 is the best of all the only one complaints on windows phone is inabillty to use 3rd party apps like ( the best games and productivity apps here are mostly paid when you buy this platform and thers no other way you can download it ) thats why they go on android devices BUT as much as on how basic things you do on your phone (like posting pictures on facebook,twitter,location services, finding restaurant nearby, etc..) its better in windows phone i love the live tiles unified inbox deep integration on social networks better office docs supprt why dont you give a try on MANGO , ITS A WAY FAR BETTER THAT APPLES,ICE CREAM SANDWICH , AND BERRIES .. :)
Rollindice, 25 Feb 2012You can keep all the customization you want, WP is so smooth, and symbian beats the crap out o... moreLol at the "Wow I can customize..." arguments. Can't wait for these 16 year olds to grow up and read their comments in a few years.
I guess why do we use phones?
maybe ios and android and BB have a real worry here?
not sure time will tell
Boy with Black Hat, 25 Feb 2012LoL NOT, I used for 2 weeks the N8 with BELLE and I feel like I was on the prehistoric age....... moreI have both an Android(Gingerbread) and Symbian(Belle) smartphones. Both have 1ghz processors and 512mb of ram. They're both fast and smooth in their operation. But for my preferences and tastes, I like the Symbian Belle OS more. I like the graphics, animations and structure on the Belle unit more than the Android.
And I'm not new to this "smartphone craze". I've owned/used Motorola, Ericsson, Sony-Ericsson, Samsung, LG, Nokia, Apple, Blackberry, etc., etc., phones(feature or smart) in the past 15-20 years. Android is nothing special. And neither is iOS. Each and every phone OS has it's benefits and drawbacks.
The reason why Android is so frickin' popular is it's basically "free". As a manufacturer of mobile phones, using a free OS really adds to your bottom-line. Of course with all the lawsuits that have been filed by Apple & Microsoft, the "free" ride is over.
The main thing here is that, from my viewpoint, Belle is better than Gingerbread. No amount of fan-boyisms from trollers, whether for or against, will change my mind.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2012People like freedom of android! "freedom"... google is watching you!!!! ;)
QT (Symbian and MeeGo) -> that's freedom!!! ;)
I don't know how to say this but im hearing google buying blackberry by Q4 2012 and licensing/creating a designated app for BBM for all major app markets. basically treating it like gmail. Google will then have an android corporate for business/schools/government and secure messaging.

Fruitcake, 25 Feb 2012At Least i can customize how my Galaxy S2 looks,an can easily change the Battery myself,an als... moreLoL about customize...well is not an car or house is just a phone and I like the way WP7 works is not a contest beauty and is not a NY Cab for making look my phone like a Christmas tree...sure you can have more juice...SG2 runs on Li-Ion 1650 mAh very big for a standard phone but Lumia 900 will have Li-Ion 1830 mAh...well I don't share anything by Bluetooth so this is not for me a problem, besides if you Jailbreak your WP7 you can use BT File Transfer (from Dark Forces Team) this is not big deal here and is the prove they can enable this at any time (just like the iPhone)...16 GB for me are good enough for every day usage not need to swap 5 MicroSD, besides MicroSD are getting damaged very easily...Sorry but the HTC Titan 2 has S-LCD and look gorgeous on 4.7/Lumia 900 on 4.3 inch screen...dual-core..Android don't handle that very well besides there is no app that takes fully the proce power...so SG2 don't have any real strong point here for make me stay on Samsung wagon..
Boy with Black Hat, 25 Feb 2012Sincerely I din't find any additional "value" on SG2, in fact I found more problems ... moreAt Least i can customize how my Galaxy S2 looks,an can easily change the Battery myself,an also send an recieve things using Bluetooth an put a 32gb micro sd card inside my phone,you can not do that with a Windows phone,an the Screen size on the Galaxy S2 is Brilliant for watch Videoes an Images on it,an speakers are Really Loud,an outshines the Lumia 800 easily,Android is so easy to use an run an batterylife alot better than the Lumia 800
hkr, 25 Feb 2012i thnk BELLE is better than this crapLoL NOT, I used for 2 weeks the N8 with BELLE and I feel like I was on the prehistoric age....nothing to compare here is performance vs basic any day use...
