desertfox6666, 15 Nov 2013Why killing? And why you think it has cheap plastic?Hey bro,if this is cheap plastic,then Samsung is what?
How is the sunlight visibility that bad? I thought they released that test showing how superior it was in sunlight.....Was that finally debunked us a fake or something? It did not seem that far fetched.

The first words of your review are profound: "Lagging behind Android in hardware specs for what seemed like ages".
Not efficiency or productivity, or usefulness, just specs.
This preoccupation with so called top end specs to drive an Android flagship is unsustainable. Why because of the perpetual expectations of increase specs when we actually are getting now just marginal increases in actual benefit with Android plus potential security and hacking issues.
So all the extra power, and new screens reach a point where their marketing usefulness goes backwards. 8 cores with Android - what for, just to give a smooth os experience and play a crappy game - why pay for that.
Given the inherent efficiency of WP v Android, a WP device of same spec is likely to be quicker, if you like the WP device. Perhaps the upgrade will help.
Me - I will stick to my Z30 Blackberry because it does the job in a secure and efficient manner without the google spyware.
Good one Nokia.

waiting for the 5" iteration. lets hope its not as big as a galaxy note.
Offline maps for me is crucial. I even carry around my old symbian phone when i'm abroad, dont know if it matters to many ppl tho
The review is superb. Waiting for 5" screen with the same spec. Nokia lumia 929.
"We do miss a few options however - like setting a starting point other than your current location and downloading maps for an entire continent.", that is a big problem in Europe with many small countries!
Android have many good alternatives for lifetime offline voiceguided navigation that cost less than the cost of Here maps that is included in the slightly raised cost of the Lumia-phone! Metro-ui use gigantic fonts... that waste the gigantic screen-space!
Nokia still use uncomfortable too sharp 4 cornars!

software side is still disappointing I hate m$ for being such a dumb a** Nokia put in their best effort.but microcrap
contrast is terrible even compared z1 that have bad display.
windows phone is killing nokia even sony selling more
I don't understand the mediocre "display in sunlight" test results. I thought the apical assertive display technology would make it the best preformer in this particular test. I guess I was mistaken.
I think it is the reason i will switch on WP from lagging Android. I have Samsung with touchwizz and it is really pain in ass.
Nokia StoryTeller the copycat of Sony PlayMemories Mobile/ Online/Home/Studio :P gotcha!
Ingers, 15 Nov 2013Wp8 killing this device.
looks very cheap plastic :(Why killing?
And why you think it has cheap plastic?
Such a gorgeous and sturdy device. Other devices don't stand a chance against Nokia's design.
Don't be so sure Nokia is leaving us so soon, GSMArena.
