Anonymous, 30 Oct 2012I'm an Android fan, but I admit WP8 has some good features, has a different some sort of magaz... morethere is an app called windows7 launcher in playstore.Its a free app.
excellent UI..same windows phone lookalike with live tiles and low memory consumption launcher
no idea, 30 Oct 2012lol ... fandroid .... be happy with ur android, why r u bothered about this then. why r u even... morefandroids ain't like fanboys,who are blinded by their OS....
we love android coz it offers the best(price,features,experience)
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2012android took many years in establishing its market but windows phone standing neck to neck wit... morethe jump that android has taken..every year in providing better experience and latest features is unmatched by any other platform...
honestly windows 8 is growing slow....
it is still not on par with iOS..forget android...as GSMarena said.
but after around 2 years it can(hope it will) be the best smartphone OS out their
why to use "Galaxy Series Wallpapers" on a windows phone Lock... it killed the appeal of the beautiful UI :P
DaMan, 29 Oct 2012Not if it means having a bad user experience.
The main criticism against the old WIndows Mob... moreSo, what you're basicaly saying is that "more features = bad user experience" ?
WM 6.5 didn't had problems with features, it had problems with implementig basic phone features (calls, messaging, etc) and lot of others very poorly.
WP7 gave users less features and only stuff that will be really used. And look how it ended in percentage of conquered market.
I would really like for WP8 to succeed. But if it doesn't get more open it won't attract so many people that think they will.
Share files over Bluetooth
Do you want to share a photo or other file with a friend who has a smartphone, laptop, or tablet with them? There are a couple of ways to do it from your phone—one of them is to share it over Bluetooth.
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2012even iphone dosnt support bluetooth...still it is top selling phone of the world....90% blueto... moresaying like transfer picture , files , video ,business card , link is rest of the 10% wtf ?
"Windows Phone 8 is only now able to start matching up against iOS, and it's still got a lot of ground to cover to reach Android levels of functionality and customization options"
-- The idea is not to provide customization like Android so that EVERYONE knows and use the OS easily.
This is is entirely different idea done intentionally by MS. Love it OR hate it :)
it doesnt have launcher support, swype (or any third party keyboard for the matter)
WP8 has Bluetooth file transfer and even NFC transfer.
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2012No voice-guided navigation? Lumia have Nokia drive that not only have turn by turn navigation... moreThose who don't go for Lumias won't get this feasture... So if going for WP8 better go for Lumia cause it has bunch of added features and apps compare to the others
No voice-guided navigation?
Lumia have Nokia drive that not only have turn by turn navigation but also support offline navigation?

Anonymous, 29 Oct 2012even iphone dosnt support bluetooth...still it is top selling phone of the world....90% blueto... moreIf Bluetooth supports piracy, Wifi too supports piracy??? nfc supports piracy, even cellular capabilities support piracy! Why dont u suggest to remove them! They want us to depend on their market place or app store for file transfer except ms included usb mass storage. U know how apple tightens its claws around you.
