Yes windows phone is buttery smooth.. But it also does nothing compared to android.. WP with 512mb ram is smooth but severely restricted in apps compatibility. Android with 512mb ram can install anything although it will cause some lags.. Functionality above smoothness.. This Lumia Droid is the start of WP demise.. Soon WP will be retired without ever reaching WP9..
PhoneNerd, 07 Jul 2014If this had a proper Google certified Android (with Google services), this would be the first ... moreLol, come on, can't stand more than 15 minutes with WP Lumia? :D
Then what you do after that
Anyway you give me a good laugh.
At last! Microsoft take serious business with Android!
Which only means one thing: Visual Studio for Android on the way!
You know you just made his point for him. The Expedia is a high end phone w a 2.x+ processor and a gig of ram so yes it runs well but if you look at a phone like the Droid4 which a friend of mine has it runs shitty as hell. My 520 on the other hand while not a lot of features (and maybe can't handle high end games) runs the OS and all my apps flawlessly.
but...but... my xperia Z still run smooth just like a new phone (never format only upgrade)..
Smile, 07 Jul 2014Dude I am using My Xperia Z1 Since November 2013, no lags, no freezes, no restarts whatsoever,... morewow! pathetic comparison don't you think? comparing an old mid-range phone to recently flagship phone... Ignorance is a bliss.
Services such as Bing, Outlook, OneDrive, OneNote
And that ugly User Interface, is exactly the reason why Microsoft WinPhone failed. Now they bring it all, to "their" Android and hopes for success, that's just stupidity at large...
As a company which main products are OS:es like Windows, WinCE, WinMobile Winphone and other, goes for a freeware OS like AOSP to be able to sell phones = Microsoft simply hammering down the last nail in the Winphone coffin.
By the way Nokia is only involved as a brand name Microsoft bought the right to use the Nokia brand on for awhile, it's all Microsoft scheming for to get a foothold on the phone market and the money.
Perhaps soon Microsoft must be scheming for their survival...
teo, 07 Jul 2014Nokia Lumia with Android = Androkia :-)no - it will be Nokioid
everyone who says that android is lagless. Yes if you have quadcore 1.5 GHz processor and at least 1GB of RAM. WP works without lags with 1.0 GHz and 512 MB of RAM.
Try for example HTC 8S and HTC desire X. 8S is smoother although it has only 512MB of RAM (Desire X has 768MB.
If you don't believe me try both and you will see it.
WP has lack of apps? Yes this was true 18 months ago...
And for finish tell me if Desire X will get new update Android L, because 8S will get WP 8.1?
Those are just facts without bullsh**t.
Carol, 07 Jul 2014Use your high end more then 3 months installing and playing, without formatting (as it always ... moreDude I am using My Xperia Z1 Since November 2013, no lags, no freezes, no restarts whatsoever, thats a Premium Android phone for you...got get it WP users.. ;)
It will be running AOSP that part are not in Googles Control.
They have Control over the Open Handset Alliance.
I guess they will sell this in markets where Google Play are not so good as in the western World.
I think to buy/sell apps for developers and customers etc. Without a credit card.
Nokia did a good work with Ovi store with that, and I Think they have continue with it in the Nokia X store:
Nj, 07 Jul 2014I've Galaxy S4 and Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1020 is far better then S4 !! Now you can try using wi... moreHahaha...U r using a Samsung phone..which has Lagdroid & not android..I have a Sony Xperia Z1 & I have never seen it lag or hang or I have never had a need to restart it coz it's not responding.. So Samsung users please dont blame Android :)
Um are you guys even aware that microsoft and google have a agreement....wp sucks and its not selling much and android is but there was some coding that microsoft had on android that google uses soo microsoft gets royalties from each android device.....parasite yess much and its 15$ a unit...look how much android sells than wp.....this is why this is happening only cause microsoft isn't successful with wp...can't tell me they are
I love Windows Phones and hate Android even thought I use Android but its a piece of xit. WP on other hands is so much pure and fast
Carol, 07 Jul 2014Use your high end more then 3 months installing and playing, without formatting (as it always ... moreYou're talking nonsense. I owned iPhones,WP Phones and Android phones...first android was HTC Sensation...a dissapointment...coming from iPhone 3GS...then i went with Lumia 800...dissapointed again (lack of apps and not getting any update past 7.8)...then i had a Galaxy Nexus...never experienced one second of lag in 1 year of constant use and formatted it once due to a rooting mistake i made. Got the S3 afterwards...a beauty and a marvel of technology...lag? Yes,when playing Injustice:Gods Among Us while alt+tabbing to use social media apps (viber,watsapp,etc). Now,i'm writing from a LG G2...i think its pointless to say that its not only blazing fast but also 100% reliable;-). Stop bashing android just because you cant afford higher-end Android powered phones.
They will probably refine the X line up and run android version with ARt. What lumia needs is more windows app other than messaging and social networking. As a medic, dearth of medical apps is the major barrier between me and windows phone.
If this had a proper Google certified Android (with Google services), this would be the first Lumia I could actually use longer than 15 minutes.
