whoa a very innovative and useful upgrade here from microsoft.
finally i can get notifications on my windows phone!
who cares about cores and dual and quad , everyone complain for what , just buy the phone you love and that it , if you love Android go for it and don`t talk about lag if you never tried it , samsung has a bit of lag but not Android , iphone has a lag as well i am sure windows as well at the end i never understand people complaining about an item they don`t like just buy what you like ...

CJS, 12 Sep 2013God that UI is dull and uninspiring - looks so dated alreadyios took 7 versions to change, and they only changed some icons. WP interface is more customizable then ios.
Marty H, 12 Sep 2013WP8 is not best.
Android TouchWhiz is.
Sales will speak that with fact.
We also have a ... morewe do not think "WP is stuck at 2 cores" but rather "Android needs so many cores to run properly".
WP already runs well at single core / 512 ram. period.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2013i wonder if there are people who will blindly support WP after the Sept. 3rd anouncement. well so many people have blindly supported Android with so many promises of fighting lag since Android 2.3 (but all the learned guys know there is no solution for the lag) - so whatever.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2013If 8.1 does not have the option for typing in T9, they can count me out as a potential customer.T9 has always been part since WP7.
Settings>Keyboard>Typing Settings>Keyboard (Language)> Check "Suggest text and highlight misspelled words"

Is this what they come up with? a number? i seriously hope the release version be much better otherwise WP will stay where it is right now.

The Capture frame rate is set to low and has nothing to do with the phones real frame rate.
TouchWhiz is build on 4.1 jellybean, which is described in reviews as "buttery smooth".
Any talk of lag is incorrect and was fied with Google
by using triple buffering and forced 60Hz screen speed
Fix your dialing service code *???#..... & enable text warp in ie explorer.... Microsoft.... Don't be stingy.... If not many consumer will jump from your wp to android, no resell value. Fix it..... No point giving 8.1 updates Without these fix for prepaid users & for people who surf the web on wphones...

Epic fail that it uses cpu cores for scrolling down (it was meant to use gpu not cpu) . An example of poor optomization . If u dont believe mywords see the comment section of the video . And ur second video shows how angry birds works fine with a single core , not octa core . Its true in real life too .
kurotsuki, 12 Sep 2013Then what's those categories for? Phone notification? Already there in the livetile. You would... moreThank you for making my point for me. If you've already got the live tiles with the notifications like it shows the 2 notifications and then the tile showing the 1 Skype and 1 Outlook then what's the benefit of having a tile with a number? You still need to look around the screen for the individual notifications. If I have categories at least I know what specific tile I need to go to. Either way, doesn't make much sense unless you can go straight to the app from the notification center tile.
