I owned an iPhone, several android devices and a lumia 800, and for me the lumia is way better... Android is just a geek OS, and iOS just a marketing product for addict... Each OS has pros and cons, just a matter of taste...

I think the dumbest thing for Nokia was to move to windows.WHY? Were U that lazy to perfect what you had? There are so many things I like about the windows os. But more than that there are so many things to hate about it too. I love the lumia phones from Nokia. The build quality is something that Nokia is always great at. I think its high time Nokia moves to android than microsuck windows poop 7.whatever.

It is fully customizable and more in the hands of open source than the other proprietary junk we call Windows and iOS. Microsuck and Apple need to go out of business and stop jerking people around.

Anonymous, 10 Mar 2013thanks! U dont own a windows device, you tried one, but i dont ... morelets have skype call bro, i will show u my windows phone .. lol ..if u dont believe i own a lumia. I own it from past 11 months ..its just this stupid contract system that is holding me from changing the phone. If u feel i own android and iknow more pf android, its beacuse i am surrounded with android phones and i follow mobile phones everyday.

My lumia 900 also never crashed .. lol :):):) .. thumbs up for that :D

why do u allow cache in first place ??? Haven't u heard of incognito browsing .. just asking ????

if u are happy with what ever is ther ... happy for u, maybe u r happy because u have win phone 8, but i was never satisfied with this .. i had hopes that they will improve but there is no sign, they said there will be more apps with WP8 but i never got upgraded to WP8, WP7.8 is still not on my phone and still the app market is nothing good either and hence will change my phone. will never trust MS again. Nokia promised these features.. http://conversations.nokia.com/2012/09/11/great-­times-ahead-for-all-nokia-lumia-smartphones/
but still no news on these. Do u think i will still sit and wait till they act ?

Thats the reason i am going to switch in a month or so .. that is definite and its goin to be android as i hate ios.

I also have a samsung ace 2. ace2 is a good phone fast lags less than others phones. I like work better. and my wp work voice commands better than any. including Sioux and iPhone5. typing is easier than any Samsung phone including note 2 . I've had both too.

It's true that past Android devices were notoriously known for lag and annoying chopiness but the latest devices like galaxy S3 ,HTC one xperia Zayn etc have eliminated considerable lag and since the jellybean update these devices have become very much lag free. Nexus7 and nexus10 are the prime examples of Android devices that have zero lag and are buttery smooth. Don't blame the OS, blame the manufacturers that put in pathetic hardware into their devices that results in a very poor operation of the OS.

  • bubu@yahoo.com

if you read the amazon people's opinion about Windows 8 you'll see that most many are disappointed with Windows 8. Windows 7 was a success but Windows 8 is a failure

OMG, 10 Mar 2013lol .... if u find other options similar to whatsapp and that to... morethanks! U dont own a windows device, you tried one, but i dont know for how long. So why should you bother about whatsapp options for others. Im happy with my stock messenger what WP offers. Also i have skype and IM+ and i dont need suggestions to give to somebody who is an ardent android fan with no wp device. Regarding your choices of browsers, the stock browser is no good, thats why I tried Chrome which is surprisingly from the same one who makes this OS. One description...pathetic!!! I dont give a shit about others on browsers like you said for whatsapp! for me my stock browser is excellent ! I dont get crashes, slow down or urge to clear cache, which I never did on my WP phone. But I had to get download a cache cleaner for my android device. Now you sell a device and a host of apps to keep it stable or work consistently...wonderful...and makes my day!
Lastly...did we fight?!
