AnonD-92553, 11 Jan 2013If talking about mid range or low end android users then yes your are 100% right. Am agreed bu... moreI beg to differ but that is not true. Im using the high end galaxy note2 from last 6 months (earlier note1, galaxy s). Although the lag is minimal with the latest jellybone it is not "completely" gone! Occasional freezes and force closes now seem to be the inherent part of android that is very annoying and not likely to go away until unless the android is written right from the scratch same as WP8 did. To conclude more cores just dont help in terms of better performance, save for the strange bugs - auto rotate, smart stay to name few with my note2, those are sometimes unique with each manufacturer (I know this since my galaxy s gps bug.. Sigh)
On another note , my lumia800 (about year old and now with wife) still runs amazingly fast and much more stable. I sometimes just cant resist to open the tiles/apps page and scrolling like crazy before I go to sleep lol. Although its just about UI but its so pleasant and much more fun to use! However, now as I have ordered my 920 here in India which got me on toes until finally getting released, Im so excited to re-live the fun. I have also ordered surface rt which will arrive around same time when my lumia arrives. Being a microsoft dev, I also appreciate what microsoft is doing to build their new ecosystem. Infact coming 15th theres a tech days event to talk about microsoft windows phone development, hands on labs etc and first time ever (if I remember it correct) in my otherwise small city. Feel so excited to attend the event along with my two devices, third being my w8pro running laptop which they asked is mandatory for attending the event. In the end microsoft and nokia and doing GREAT for the windows ecosystem and their efforts are not a waste some suggets here and are certainly paying off! Thanks for reading!
Im an android user but for me guys windows phone is the most stable and bug free os, it rarely lags for me. its just my opinion, i accepted that windows is better than android in terms of speed and stability. lets not fight over it

Am agreed but High end android phones like S3 or note2 are good. No lag not performance issue.
nicky , 10 Jan 2013i am confused which phone to choose . This or Nokia 3310/3315 . Please help I can e... morei think the better phone for u childrens phone (like one touch its key its sing a song and touch another key its sing different song this phone better for u...) beacause ur a child u dont need any phones u can touch hear and smile ok......
I dont agree if u are comparing a high end phone then compare it with another high end.People using high end android never use task killers every now and then..This phone is awesome in looks and features but not as usable as android high end ones.
people are voting this phone down on purpose, and lying about it...
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2013wow.Lumia finally sold moore phones than symbian.wonder why.but half than Asha ..lol..With so much attention from Nokia and they don´t sell more Lumias,strange.And Symbian that thas been dead since N8 came sells half of Lumias..
99% of Android Phone owners spend 90% of their time in any given day sitting on the task killer screen searching for ways to better the performance and reduce the lag. If you don't believe me notice it yourselves and most android owners know this for a fact but won't agree to it.
Windows Phones are the next big trend and those who adopt to this trend at the earliest can be part of the very cool clan of WP8 owners.
AnonD-99445, 10 Jan 2013The phone looks awesome . The UI is great . The functinality and performance are however poor ... moreAre you a joke. The Lumia 920 is way ahead than S3 (Android) or iPhone (iOS) in terms of UI, Usability and Functionality. The WP8 OS is the simplest, easiest to use and most fluid OS in the market right now with zero lag (and that's why it does not need a task killer, because it never lags. Android needs it because the OS made on Linux is so slow and laggy that without a task killer no one can use an Android phone). WP8 is an OS that is out of the world with mind blowing performance where even a Lumia 620 beats the S3 in terms of benchmarks (http://mynokiablog.com/2012/12/26/lumia-620-bests-both-the-sgs-3-and-the-htc-8s-in-browser-benchmarks/).
The Lumia 920 is better than the S3 or iPhone 5 in every aspect, be it display, camera, wireless charging, performance, OS, usability. It's because of people like you who for no reason promoted Android so much that many of my family members ended up buying phones made out of that shitty Android OS and now are suffering with the slow and laggy performance.
But now most people now are waiting to switch to the Lumia 920 , 820 or the 620 based on their spending budgets.
You can stick with your ver priced Galaxy S3 with the crappy battery performance of only 2 hours and which was defeated by the lowest range Lumia 620. Imagine what the Lumia 920 can do then.
The phone looks awesome . The UI is great . The functinality and performance are however poor . Very few apps support multitasking . Samsung galaxy 3 and i phone 5 are miles miles ahead in terms of usability . The phone rarely hangs but if ut hangs u need to restart it unlike in the Galaxy phones where u can use the task manager to the fullest. The camera is definitely better than both s3 n i phone .however thats about it . The Biggest drawback is the WINDOWS PHONE 8 os which delivers scratchy performance with all google services like youtube ,google maps . infact google had stopped the services of googlemaps for a couple of days last week on this platform .The battery life is only slightly better than samsung galaxy s3 (my primary phone ) .
FOR A BUDGET LIKE 38 K , the Phone is a waste .
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2013wow.Lumia finally sold moore phones than symbian.wonder why.but half than Asha ..lol..ya,its quite lame of nokia to call a contemporary asha as a smartphone.yes it sells more than lumia,coz 'asha' brand is older and more trusted than the 'lumia' which still reminds of limited wp7.but the fact is that an asha is smarter than a featurephone like that of bada.it offers basic apps like whatsapp and music,messaging,downloading multitasking.nokia need it to open it a more and give os some freedom and app integration,they already have processors upto 1ghz.it can easily compete with a low end droid.
