JOJOBA, 06 Sep 2012what about smasung n iphone? and WP8 is far superior to Junk Anrdoid. I have used galaxy ace a... moreThe Galaxy Ace most likely ran the crappy sammy touchwiz UI - which IS laggy. Blame sammy, not Android. Same phone on LauncherPro should be smooth. Even 550Mhz and 256 MB RAM Motorola Milestone/Droid runs without lag on LauncherPro. Unfortunately also som buggy apps may cause instability and lag due to incompatibility. A problem not exclusive to Android btw.
Luckily launchers can be replaced by user without any jailbreaking etc. Just as installing any other app. Don't like it? Replace it. My current favourite is TSF UI.
Btb, I wouldn't recommend sammy-plastic to anyone. Get a properly built phone when first buying one ;)
nokia please do friendship with ANDROID otherwise u can't fight in smart phones competition.
Please for the love of many Microsoft make a windows surface phone.
Show people how it meant to be done in don't deny that there is some good technology.
But it's wrapped up in a well used and rehashed design.
big boss, 06 Sep 2012there is one term called 'rat race' and the people like you are giving the true meaning to it.... moreHa ha ha...what a joke..most of android users are power users.....they more about their OS than what others know.......most of them don't wait for OTA updates as u guyz do.....they love customize their phone love to root it.......
Just don'T troll....
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2012A shame the retail numbers say WP is not only behind Android and iOS, but also Blackberry(RIM)... morethere is one term called 'rat race' and the people like you are giving the true meaning to it.
Indeed, Android is an Okay OS but few companies like Samsung and few people or critics (mainly haters of Symbian) projected as the best one. And then people like u started believing that.
Well no surprise. I have met no. of guys who don't even know the abc of OS but are crazy for Android.

WP is only one step up from last, which is the "Miscellaneous category" of all those other OSes that are too obscure to even name (oh yes, Bada is named because it is in front of WP!!).
So before coming around in a comparison binge with the number one OS of the world (Android) focus on beating Bada (yes, Bada!)
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2012Windows Phone 8 on Lumia 920 and 820? People should open their eyes cos this phone is Nokia N9... morewhat about smasung n iphone? and WP8 is far superior to Junk Anrdoid. I have used galaxy ace and nokia 610. nokia is much faster and fluent. Andorid requires high end hardware to perform smooth.
Windows Phone 8 on Lumia 920 and 820? People should open their eyes cos this phone is Nokia N9 design used four times for Lumia 800, Lumia 900, Lumia 920 and Lumia 820.....come on Nokia, is that it? way to go with ur new idea of repeating design and slaping old boring WP OS on it......you're just like apple, but a little better though ...............Lol..and to apple, the reason why they don't want to have a
removeable back cover for the iPhone is because you
will see that their chipset came from Samsung, screen
from LG and camera from Sony! haha! well done Apple!
same design as Lumia 900 and N9, no problems.
at least you could have changed the power button position, you could have put it higher or next to charger slot. cuz it is pretty unsable when on a cradle with soft pad in a car. because no other button can wake the phone.
Jesus, they recycled the N9 design for the 3rd time. And are watering down the Pureview brand faster than you can say "nokia". Pureview with the release of the 808 was supposed to be about superlative smartphone cameras. It only took them one extra phone to water it down to nothing special. Wow. Great strategy guys. Winning. Nokia is pretty pathetic these days.

Try also to keep in mind that it is a phone first, it just also has a ok enough camera included. Like any other phone.
If you care so much about camera, get a proper camera instead!
This way you can also get yourself a better phone.
The hw is fine... It's the platform that it stands on are the problem. Because topping it all off it's not about whether WP8 vs. Android vs. iOS. Far too late into this stage of the game. The branding are the major hurdle. It's versus Win RT...
Some of you won't get this. It's fine. I'll clarify. The 1st time MS announced those Surface tablets w/ that Pro model in, I knew that the bets are now out of the tree. Think now for a sec; "How hard is it for MS to scale Win RT down to future Win phones and make the seamless inter-experience to its ARM bigger sibling tablets?". Not hard. And that's when the real circus starts. ARM based tablets are essentially same SoCs with bigger batts and what could be more any lesser PITA than for MS to just merge the available WP8 apps (obviously these should be prioritized as Win RT app count are just pitiful at this point) catalog along with RT ones into a single comprehensive arrangement a'la the App Store?
Now you see the problem. Which to kill as a brand? RT or WP8? Will RT really survive should Intel are actually more than capable to bring serious ARM challengers in x86 form in the near future? If that happens then NO ONE not even a luddite would want to touch RT?
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2012I'm selling my Galaxy S3 to buy this!!!I can give you one if you want! send me your S3 and i'll give you both 820 and 920 Lumia..I have been given this 2 phones to use for my development because i am a developer for Microsoft for windows phone.
