[deleted post]:D Yeah! I have a happy one in Android town. Never getting PUNKED by Microsoft no more :)))
[deleted post]This is an android article! You the only troll here
tonystark.., 20 Oct 2013Same old pathetic excuse,you said microsoft said 1080p is a hardware requirement,give me prove... moreYou don't have a point! I'm not even supposed to be having this with you, because you obviously don't know what's going on and you are closing your eyes to the fact that Microsoft will discontinue support for hardware made my OEM and bought by people without even providing any comforting explanation or consideration for the money spent and the timing.
Tell a 925 or 1020 proud owner in simple English that there is an update called GDR3 that gives a 3rd grid or column to give 6 tiles in a row BUT he/she can't get it because their phones are not good enough! ( And they know they just bought the best wp phones in the world)
Tech.Chief, 20 Oct 2013Proof; GDR3 comes before 8.1 and is a prerequisite for the software update. No phone existing... moreSame old pathetic excuse,you said microsoft said 1080p is a hardware requirement,give me prove for that,actually your comment is disproving your comment non 1080p phones are still getting an update so you're just proving yourself wrong GDR3 has 1080p Is a hardware requirement.....
all devices are getting GDR3,3 tiles is not a feature,just because an android update for 2.3 added nfc capability to phones which only had nfc chips does mean it and later versions was not released on non nfc phones later....
tonystark.., 20 Oct 2013First the last update was 5 months ago for 7.8.....rest of the comment is B.S.,microsoft never... moreProof; GDR3 comes before 8.1 and is a prerequisite for the software update. No phone existing can get the full GDR3 except the unannounced 1520, and Microsoft said clearly that full GDR3 comes to only 1080P.
What do you need? Brain implant? ??
Tech.Chief, 20 Oct 2013I think the only troll here is you, most people commenting here are doing it based on phones ... moreBy the definition a troll on a discussion is someone who tries to antagonize something snd you are doing that with microsoft and nokia,so you are in ever way a trolll......and if you say a any android tablet is better than any full windows tablet ,then you're the most pathetic troll i've ever seen.......
Tech.Chief, 20 Oct 2013I had a Lumia 800 that got the 7.8 and that was it. Every other big fixing or light update c... moreFirst the last update was 5 months ago for 7.8.....rest of the comment is B.S.,microsoft never said 8.1 or any version of wp has 1080p as an hardware requirement,if you have any proof then comment otherwise stop using insisting with this stupid logic.......
tonystark.., 20 Oct 2013LOL..now i'm pretty sure you're a pathetic troll....wp7.8 devices just a few months sgo reciev... moreI think the only troll here is you, most people commenting here are doing it based on phones they have and are using, i have Nokia phones and Samsung phones, Android and Windows Phone. Whatever is being said is from what i know and what I'm experiencing.
I have a note 8 which is getting 4.2.2 update shortly ( delay based on my region) At the same time, the 8.1 Windows RT update for the Ativ tab won't come and might never come. Even with a pen is a pain to use because the OS is simply terrible. So these gadgets are both Samsung, both pen enabled but the only practical one is the Note 8 because it runs the Android. My lenovo tab 2 is absolutely useless even with the pen and the "full" Windows 8 it runs.
So in my search for portability, practicality and true mobility, Microsoft is a waste of money,Android is wise investment. You see is not and has never been about Nokia!
tonystark.., 20 Oct 2013So you think all next wp8 devices will be 1080p devices and there won't be any low or mid end ... moreI had a Lumia 800 that got the 7.8 and that was it. Every other big fixing or light update came from Nokia which had been ages though.
I'm not saying every 8.1 device Must be 1080P, Microsoft did, and trust me, it's a hardware requirement and standard. It's either it meets it or it doesn't work. It's simple.
So your low end devices might either be expensive Or non existent.
sunnyrkts, 20 Oct 2013ms said that it will support wp7.5 devices for 18 months i m yet to see bug fixes after wp7.8LOL..now i'm pretty sure you're a pathetic troll....wp7.8 devices just a few months sgo recieved an update,do you expect them to release a new update everyday......get a life......
Tech.Chief, 20 Oct 2013So from everything, Microsoft is the main unstable Partner, but unfortunately they own the No... moreSo you think all next wp8 devices will be 1080p devices and there won't be any low or mid end wp8.1.....that is the most stupid thing i've ever heard...and btw wp7 got an update to resize the tiles ,so clearly you have no idea what you're talking about.....
sunnyrkts, 20 Oct 2013what about forward key?? no major problem of wp7.8 was fixed. truth right now is that an... moreIt depends on your definition of functionality.....besides all the problems you mentioned were due to apps or with,it is a problem which will be fixed by time,not every os has millions of apps from start....you can't play subtitles in default player or android does not open or manage zip files by default without an app..........some people prefer a reliable experience over stupid stuff like subtitles.....
tonystark.., 20 Oct 2013First every one is getting full update,the just don't have the hardware to support it just li... moreSo from everything, Microsoft is the main unstable Partner, but unfortunately they own the Nokia we know. I still have an N9 i never really used, just had the Android ICS installed - though it's not functional but it's the best sight you can have on a small phone off its size.
My view is this; symbol of the old wp is the big tiles without the smaller ones. And now shortly the symbol of the old wp will be 2 columns instead of 3. So the only 8.1 phone is the Microsoft made 1520.

but no problem since we're agreed on the samething *hi 5*

no major problem of wp7.8 was fixed.
truth right now is that android 2.3 is more functional than wp 8 gdr3.
atleast it can play video with subtiles, can extract and manage compressed file. need not to mention i can share videos on whatsapp which is more stable on android as compared to wp 8.

Tech.Chief, 20 Oct 2013Will appreciate if you have any publication you can point us to, to prove it. My observation... moreFirst every one is getting full update,the just don't have the hardware to support it just like 620 did'nt get radio,and apples says last 3 iphones will get all.latest updates but still are restricted in some areas.......and as for proof about windows phone 8.1,actually microsoft vowed that every wp8 devices will get a update upto atleast wp9-
tonystark.., 20 Oct 2013All wp8 devices.......Will appreciate if you have any publication you can point us to, to prove it. My observation and skepticism comes from back in June when it was announced that all WP8 will get the FULL GDR3 on GSMARENA, but now that's false cos as we can see, no existing WP8 phone gets the FULL update. Now the 8.1 is slated for next year Jan/Feb. What happens to those that can't even get the full GDR3, let alone the full 8.1??
That's just my observation.
Another thing is this; some countries get Nokia devices months after launched in the USA or India, my country PTOs are still offering pre-order for the 1020, so you can imagine if someone gets it like next month and at the same time the 1520 is launched and you see a world of difference, it automatically translates to DOA.
