Anonymous, 09 Nov 2010What is with these arbitrary $199 prices?? All these types ... moreremember you can cancel your contract in USA with considerably lower cancellation fees. People gets iphone 4 for as little as 35 dollars where as in US it is 35 pounds (ard 60 dollars) and 100pounds up front fees in uk

What is with these arbitrary $199 prices?? All these types of phones are just free ($0) on 24 month contracts in Australia, UK etc. At similar or even LOWER monthly service fees too.

The US market is atrocious. What a ridiculous rip off. Either phones should be free on contract, or you pay like $700 without a contract so you can go on a $15/month service. Like most sensible countries do.

Guys WP7 is great, work with it then comment here, it looks ugly in screenshots because its an OS in motion, the beauty of it is in working with it, how fast and polished everything is, the transitions and all, if you wanted to judge an OS by it looks in screenshots winmo with htc sense was the best, but in real life, in motion, it was not

do you mean RETINA like display?

Surround sound from a 1 inch diaphram?

Super AMOLED! Does not last as long as LCD! Currently rather granular! Compare Gallaxy S to Iphone 4.

Big Screen?
Surround Sound?
Super Amoled Screen?

Custom UI is like adding a spice of ones taste to food unless the interface in is near perfect ? Iphone ?Symbian ?BlackBerry Microsoft needs to reverse the decision to Block custom UI. Windows 6 was great! Added UIs made it more appealing! It will take me alot of distress and adjustment to accept this! Why must I be forced to paint my car yellow then I like the equipment but I like navy blue or silver gray?

Eight big and wide icons(widgets/shortcuts) on a 4 inch display?!!! I have no idea how MS allowed such a thing on the market.

How great is the idea of tile? They do not look creative. Tiles make the phones look ugly. Consider the Sense UI or Iphone or GDesk app on symbian, vs the tiles! How many tiles can this design take? Imagine the long scrolling you would do as apps are added. Windows 7 may be great but the UI is not intuitive or natural!

Would be interesting to see how many of these would be sold..


Never seen people comment as bad as GSMArena, everything is considered bad to you guys expect for iPhone, or Nokia.
