Windows 6.1 etc was bad, but still it had its market right? It was not flop..right?
Hence Windows Phone 8 will survive and infact it has the potential to gradually over a period of time....defeat iOS and Android, as it starts gaining acceptability.
I own a Lumia 710, will upgrade to Lumia 920.
Previously had used Android. I have to agree that WP is ultra smooth OS.
Its refreshingly different, Android is still a bit buggy (less noticable on flagships like S3)while iOS is running short of innovatiion.
Lumia 920 with Windows Phone 8 is better than any other Android phone and iphone any day.There is no comparison, its just better.

Trust me I work for Nokia and have most Apple products and switched from iOS to android last year Xperia S ; Android is good and I like many things about it but Windows Phone 8 is just another league. The only annoying thing is that the OS is locked and restricted but again, iOS is locked, yet it's eating a big portion of the market share.
And Btw, I am not a fan boy,; I didn't go for the Lumia 900 when it was out because I knew it would be too early ( Application wise and minor issues ) however, I am more than eager to get the Lumia 920. Marketplace is now competitive with almost all essential applications available.
Goodluck finding the phone that suits you.
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2012Good, but 185g? What did Nokia think? There,s a 249g tablet!!!It depends on what is inside and material used. nokia is known for making durable handsets. they last longer, thats why i prefer nokia phones.

Seriously, what are the complaints? "The tiles are boring" comes from someone who never used the phone, and is not seeing a background picture on it, so it is "boring" to him. He actually means "different" but doesn't know it because he's never seen what those tiles can really do when you're online.
What else? "Closed OS". What's so closed about it? With WP 8 you got mass storage and Bluetooth file transfer too. Also you can drag and drop files in the phone using Windows 8 on your laptop. It's not like MS is against flexibility like Apple is.
And last, "few apps". That's just a perception you get from a number, and to the majority that means nothing, as you already got most of the apps there are on other ecosystems. With WP8, limitations are lifted so number of apps will grow fast too.
I'd take the innovation in WP over now aging iOS everyday. Also, the stability and ease of use of WP is orders of magnitude above Android.
Seriously though, much of the complaints are just hate toward the name "Windows" other than that there is little objective ground for complaining about Windows Phone.

But to be honest, I'm using GS3 right now, and my mom's still using Nokia N8. In my opinion, N8 has a better, much more mature multitasking. Android is always running a lot of things in the background, make it slower and takes a lot of battery life. While N8, it never open anything (or at least it's not appear and I can't figure that out), and when you open the apps the phone will never close it until you close it by yourself or restart the phone (yes, it'll become laggy and hang if you open more than 6 apps). It's not a fair comparison, S3 is much much smoother, much better user experience, but it's right Symbian is still great, but just lack of software support and hardware capabilities.
everyone is complaining about the OS. For me, symbian is good, but Meego is better, and yet WPhone is the best. Nokia will not survive without an ecosystem, that is why symbian and meego have no chance of competing in a multiple-device-compatible driven market. Microsoft gave Nokia that chance. Windows 8 are going to be massive and popular, it will benefit nokia a lot. And come on guys, why don't you try WinPhone 8 first before counting it out.
Personally, WP is the most secure OS of all, it is the most elegant and most professional.
Du umb people who dont know how to use smartphones should not use smartphones they should use featurephones instead.
lumia utter failure, again comes lumia, think nokia very well, iam a fan ur
I love nokia phones actually this enteprise going bad, (because samsung win more popularity), but nokia still are the best phone saler. (samsung are in the top number 2)

Don't look at S60 (that's not fair).
Symbian is now Belle FP2 and It's very much alive now (not dead yet, unless it's really ditched by it's owner). Symbian is on par with other OSes, or even better in some aspects, because it is mature, stable, and very capable OS. What Symbian needs is just a fair treatment. Tha's all !
This is awesome phone, but one looking at it and reading comments must agree, that only weak part of this phone is Windows system. Nobody is complaining on HW part and fact is that it is almost perfect. All complaints are coming for SW part.
Would it be Symbian phone, Nokia could maybe regain its smartphone share back.
There was nothing wrong with Symbian, it is still wonderful system (I own Nokia 808 Pureview) and people just wanted bigger screens and faster processors.
I enjoy true multitasking in my N808 every minute of usage.
For WP we are only hearing what is not possible, what we can not do. Some people argue, that they are not using all possibilities of phone so it is OK. But what is better? To have all possibilites in phone and not use it as average user, or to not have them and be restricted sometimes?
I think WP will be fail for Nokia, because it is system which is simply not acceptable for really big part of users. And with addition that it is restricted, target population for this phone is very small.
Microsoft is not giving to Nokia any special privileges, you can buy phone with WP8 from other producers. So Nokia shouldn't burn all bridges and continue with Symbian on same HW. Customer should decide which OS they will buy and I can guarantee that it would be one with Symbian which would win...
