@anonymous i think you misunderstood my comment ! I did not say Huawei was a bad company , even i said it is a better company than Htc
mika08, 09 Jan 2013Like the HTC8s 4GB intern. Memory - Thats not enough!what is basic different between nokia windows phone and HTC windows phone?

And judging by where most designs of the 21st century are headed (if you look at most company logos that changed in the last ten years), it's the current trend to avoid flashy eye-candy.
Even HTC got rid of its over-the-top weather animations in Sense 4.0
People who want wallpapers and bells and whistles and trinkets in phones should maybe grow up a bit!

But keep quiet when it lags or its motherboard dies in displaying colorful heap of icons or wallpapers or contracts malwares. Other than that there is no useful customization features. But beware it is the best in the world! It is pandemic...everywhere!

"It is the largest telecommunications equipment maker in the world, after having overtaken Ericsson." I'd choose their products over HTC's anytime - more experience, cheaper:)
If u need something caalled 'WAAALPAPER',well ,the lockscreen just when turn on/of the phone and after this welcom in the limitid world of 3 colors and an black or white waalpaper. The wp8 world is 3 colors and no images.
Katey, 09 Jan 2013No offence and no doubt that lumia 920 is the best . But the fact is everyone CANNOT afford a ... moreThank you for the most logical comment I've read in a while.
Its true that the Lumias (920/820) are perhaps the best WP phones (partly due to their exclusive maps etc.) but yes not everyone who wants WP needs maps.
And not everyone can afford a 920.
So if priced right, this could turn out to be a hidden gem.
No offence and no doubt that lumia 920 is the best . But the fact is everyone CANNOT afford a 920. So one would look for 820 or 620 but for those who want more features will go with Huawei. So what is wrong in that? Moreover Huawei is equally a good company or may be more than Htc and when it comes to china they are the boss. So happy to see more and more companies are going towards windows for their safer future.
If this was available in my country i'd sure go for it. Some may say all wp are same but thats the interesting point. This makes you have on worries about quality of a phone and you can concentrate on design and camera requirements. So you dont have to bother about specs while you are getting whatever possible to get in your budget.
This makes consumers care less about brands and choose phones based on their personal interest. If one cant get a BMW nothing wrong in getting a chervorlet is it ?
Battery is biggest for its size class. With decent specs.
Hope the budget price is good. Nice start for huawei into wp8.
MisterCats, 08 Jan 2013Only issue I have with WP8 devices is that they all do the same thing (Manufacturer A, B, and ... moreThat same specs on WP8 reduce much less bugs, games are optimized, and the OS is easier to update too. Android is the opposite of those.
jbpianist28, 09 Jan 2013What a load of rubbish.. Whoever told you this, Nokia are doing well nowNokia should make their lumia phones narrower, all too FAT! like the L920.. hard to swipe left and right ... which is needed in most WP8 apps.
Thats why smaller 4inch .. better or like the L820 good fone. and change aspect ratio 16:9 or so.. not WVGA (5:3)
GSMArenaUser, 08 Jan 2013Who needs a HW KB nowadays????I would love to have physical keyboard with up to date hardware. Xperia Pro is nice but it's slow and low memory. If they have an upgrade version of that I would buy it right away.
Jovster, 09 Jan 2013The thing is, the 920 alone has all those, what differentiates every single other WP8 device?I wasn't saying that the current portfolio of WP devices is very differentiated (same with almost every other OS.. Where you find basically the same device 100 times). I just said that there is space for differentiation but that most manufacturers just don't want to make the effort.
bob, 08 Jan 2013There is enough space to differentiate... The lumia 920 for example... Wireless charging, pure... moreThe thing is, the 920 alone has all those, what differentiates every single other WP8 device?
dese6, 08 Jan 2013Word on the street is that Nokia will sell it's mobile phone business to Huawei before the end... moreFunny baseless rumour spreading
.. Here is something which I heard from a friend of a friend of my grandma... Word of mouth is that soon Samsung will be sold to an by now unnamed Chinese copycat... Because the phones they produce look somewhat similar... :-)
