Some people repeat many sections from this review..! I think that this people never use a WP ( in the real world use) not for a quick test.!! Some post said.. Not multitasking... ,!! Please.... When you open several apps in WP and press the back buttons , you see all apps open... And you only need touch the page and open. ( sometimes in iOS when you open another background app.... This apps open from the begining.. Beacose the system close them.. The same happens in the navigator... You pass from diffrent pages and the last is closed and you need to wait to reload...!! This NEVER HAPPEN IN WP) the people that write negative comments about this system... Please Srs.. First use in the real world a WP lumia... And them write again.!!
GSMARENA.... Be professional in your reviews. Compare same OS phones.!! Because the perfomance and hardware use in every OS IS DIFFERENT..! Very different.! I know too many people that migrate from androids to wp...!! Because Android is a nightmare in memory manage deparment.. Always the phones will be slow and you need to reset..! Too garbage in the market...!! Spam and apps icons appears in your main screen... Like virus..!! Updates updates and updates from OS to apps to fix houndreds bugs..!! Wp is perfect..? Nooooo. But is more stable like androids. In some areas is better like iOS too...!!
Sombody remind me,when wl nokia be sold 2 google??i mean nokia always laggs behind since symbian OS to WP7 and WP8 OS,leave alone that,the hardware is far from impressive and the OS is too buggy whatsup app is rly boring

There really isn't much of a change compared to the 920 from last year. So the screen from LCD to amoled (same resolution), camera flash went from led to xenon. And the last change is the case is smaller and lighter. But all the internals are the exact same as the 920. Same dual core 1.5ghz and 1gb of ram, and same OS.

One of the reasons Samsung used it was to keep the price in... moreThey wanted to keep which price in check? Cost Price or Selling Price? The difference is profit.
If Samsung ever wanted to keep Cost Price in check, they would stop blowing 12 Billion dollars on Advertising.
They lost another 12 in market value, that's 24 Billion to make the most awesome phone ever that doesn't need advertising at all.
"Windows Phone 8 introduces resizable live tiles - when you tap and hold on a tile, you'll get additional resize button to the unpin one. You can opt between quarter, normal and double size. If you select the smallest one though, the tile will be just a static icon (as is in the regular menu)."
Dear editors, actually, the smallest icon size is simply not dynamic of the moving/flipping kind. But it can be more than an icon. The quater size icon can be an image with the 'Me' tile, it can be an image reduction of a web page is you pin a web page on the start screen. It can be a regularly updated front page image from a news app (just check lemonde.fr app for instance).
Windows Phone 8 has a very nice UI. Thanks for the review.
Best phone on Verizon right now. Highest rated ever.

Homescreen on iOS is still very boring and it's just an app launcher. Integrations in iOS is no where near WP8. You need an app for everything on iOS. People Hub alone on WP8 can replace 10 apps on iOS.
This is the top rated phone on Verizon right now. No other phone can match. Android is buggy on all phones and laggy after couple weeks. Apps start up on Android by themselves for no reason. There is no need for a task manager on WP8.
I wish to see an article with no 'samsung is better apple is even better' comments.
It's an article about Nokia and WP8, HOW ON earth did it all of a sudden come to samsung? If you like samsung more, don't buy a nokia, if you like the nokia and wp8, go get one. My wife has the lumia 720 with wp8 and while it is lacking some features, she's more then happy with it.
In car forums you don't see comments like 'my bmw is tottally 50kg lighter then you bulky heavy audi' and 'omg your nissan sucks, get a porsche instead'. What happened to having opinions? Please, keep all the annoying comments to yourself.
Remember that android is only decent since jelly bean, and ios just got updated to implement many 'expected' features only with 7th version! WP8 is new, give it time. Or stick to android/ios, and don't bash other systems just like that
So much waste of time for Nokia...
Ugly squared OS without elegance, bad battery and not removable, MicroSD, camera inadequate...
Pureview is overrated. Should be called Purenoise from now on!! Look at those street picture when the sun is setting....
As an European I'm more interested in the hopefully upcoming 925 review, as the 928 will not be available here. Please hurry up!
By the way, all the WP8 phone reviews inevitably have many similar pages because of the basic features (people hub, mail, etc..) being identical. You should make a separate set of pages that all WP8 phone reviews can refer to. A review subroutine, if you will.
I went to see a proper qwerty keyboard phone. I've seen enough of these tough slabs - not worthwhile reading, they're all the same.
AnonD-171, 11 Jun 2013wow that was boring.....as BOring at IOS ..just pretty UI and animationActually, I find iOS7 is more interesting than Windoze Phone now. At least there are switch toggle shortcuts accessible now on iOS7, while WP is still having the lousy notification and toasts system, and can't end task although app switching is there.
