Some misunderstanding about windows phones.
1. Dual-core only while we can buy quad core processor on android with a same bugs.
> Windows phone OS and IOS doesn't need quad core. They are well optimized OS, never hang, no force stopping, no need to restart frequently.
2. Difficult to use, no Bluetooth file sharing.
> Every OS has their own UI. Just learn it and you will discover many hidden features that windows phone brings to you. Its the most advance UI. Bluetoth File sharing is there on windows phone 8
3. Boring home screen.
> You may not see animated wallpapers or beautiful widgets. But when you going inside an elements like people hub, picture hub, music hub, etc. You will see these graphical and panorama design are really beautiful and advanced. You will not get bored anymore.
4. No customization.
> Windows phone and Iphone users are very satisfied with their standard UI of windows phone. Customization doesn't meant satisfied.
5. Very few apps.
> Marketplace is growing. There are 130,000 of apps. For Normal use, apps are more than enough. Numeric figure of apps on store only tells about a quantity of apps. Quality of apps is more important. Just remember that there are many thousands of useless apps on playstore.
6.People don't like it??
> Microsoft windows 8 and windows phone may be difficult for new comers so many peoples complaint it before keeping deep into it. But when you get familiar to it, you will see how advance and easy UI it is.
I dont like window phone 8 . Already try it at the showcase store , too simple . I hope there will be a major update for next version of this os .
This smart camera phone would be better if you could only install instagram on it. Sad to say you cant.
poop, 14 Jul 2013all that technology crap and there is still no sign of a file manager -_-No sign at all! I totally regret putting my money on L720! I cant do any of those stuff I used to do with my Nokia 701 (Belle FP2) download any thing....download YouTube videos and transfer them to my PC,...Windows phone 8 is absolute thrash! Me, am done wit em!!
I seriously wonder if Nokia/Microsoft is listening to the complaints from its consumers about this Windows Phone 8 OS! Does Nokia thinks that a big-ass camera will lure 20 millions units sold in 2 months on a TRASH OS like windows phone 8?
dafuq, 15 Jul 2013Dual core?????? oh my.... Yes, like all the other OS. Did you ever wondered why Android is the only OS that needs 4 or more cores?
wazzu, 14 Jul 2013OMG this phone is a monster, but I want buy it in my first opportunityYeah, a bulky plastic monster.
excellent phone! but :( i wish nokia was android... not i am saying wp8 is bad but.. they need more apps and games like android or ios, plus even the few apps like facebook/whatsapp/viber... they arent juss great as android ones...i think nokia wants to lonch the android....:) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)+
Would love to have this hardware with Meego or Jolla in it. WP8 is not exactly upto my taste and likings. Maybe I just love to use a European OS.
Nokia really sucks in apps
I tried lumia 520 and it was really bad considering the apps that most people like the most
but in general above average phone
Nokia Lumia 1020 is the best camera ever which can also be used for calling and messaging. The brand of that camera should be Carl Zeiss not Nokia.
