No matter what, Please test the new WP8. GSMArena
Did it fully support USSD menu/reply ?
It quite a essential function where we still suffer under windows phone 7.5.

Google rushed to complete Android, but it was too late to rewrite the UI framework.
Android user interface will never be completely smooth because of the design constraints that limit UI rendering to the main thread of an app with normal priority.
fixing the problem would require a rewrite.
"Android was built to lag, and there’s little Google can do about it" software engineer Andrew Munn.
Only try and hide it.
Never be as smooth as Windows Phone...
imo.. this is the very 1st metal body phone from samsung.. way to go and keep it up sammy!!
JELLY BEAN 4.1 smoothness (4.0 was very smooth, but 4.1 is running so fast and lag free totally but most of people don't know that!!!!) try it! ANdroid 4.1 is totally lag free and i can assume that! android 4.1 was made to be the best competitor of wp8 smoothness but most of people did not even tried jellybean because they only hate android i don't know why!
falasca, 01 Sep 2012see how samsung scare from WP8!! that why SAMSUNG use OS Windows...not that, but only to give users what they want with droids also to win to the maximum!
see how samsung scare from WP8!!
that why SAMSUNG use OS Windows...
Windows Phone Fan, 01 Sep 2012Don't see why speaking the truth about android makes him jealous. Seem your the jealous one... morewhat?? they did one wp8 like on wp7 start but let's see! then why are a lot of droids launched also?? one device of wp8 is only to win some money but droids are the real win!
When is this to be released? I am buying this instead of the new iPhone. It looks elegant and the brushed metal cover is to die for. I'm starting to get tired of Android (I have S3 and One X). I wanted a WP8 phone and this Sammy phone is just the one.
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2012i prefer the one with many apps. oh, btw, project butter makes those "many-apps" ph... moreI agree with you. More apps means more way to improve your productivity and more way to get fun. Don't get fool just because one os is smoother than the other.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2012Wow. Spoken like a true jealous, sad, pathetic troll.Don't see why speaking the truth about android makes him jealous.
Seem your the jealous one as we have a smooth OS designed from the start to use dual cores and more.
Now HTC is seeing this now and joining in the future OS. Just See the Android fans know it's over.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2012Wow. Spoken like a true jealous, sad, pathetic troll.Not jealous at all. I have couple Android phones in the drawer. WP and iOS over Android any day for me. Waiting for the iPhone 5 or the new Lumia Pureview WP8.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2012droid is better in all terms!Yeah Android OS is better at slow software updates. Android is very buggy and crash prone. Android is infested with malwares. Android complex games from the like of EA and Gameloft have force closes, freezes, and compatibility issues with different phones.
DSN, 31 Aug 2012 A's story 'A' wakes in morning, bored, picks a android phone, unlock... moreAndroid is Linux. Windows Phone 8 is the best of both worlds between iOS and Android. It offers software updates for everyone, less fragmentation for the developers since there are only Adreno graphics chips to make games/apps for and four resolutions, which means less crashes for games, and it offers hardware choices.
luiso, 31 Aug 2012Sammy REALLY needs to change their design. I showed a pic of this phone to a friend(He's not t... moreNo! That is because the general public is so un tech savy and so conformed that they think anything pertaining to phones, mp3 players, or tablets is an Apple. They dont say mp3..they say Ipod, they dont say smartphone or galaxy they say iphone, they dont say tablet or kindle...they say ipad. Apple has this conformed view on everyone and somhow it got to the point that apple products are the only names people know. Its really sad that many people can be so naive.
Is it just me or does the WP platform have ridiculously good-looking phones? I mean..first the Lumias and now this..im just loving it™ :D
Also about this Android vs WP apps debate..Isn't the main feature of WP8 having the same kernel as the Desktop Windows 8? I watched the video where Microsoft announced WP8 and the guy said something like "When someone writes a program (or an "app") for Windows 8, he now has a super easy port process to Windows Phone 8." Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this means that WP-appstore-whatever-its-called could grow quite fast.
