Why do people like you comment like dumb. A few weeks back there was a poll conducted to know about people's preference regarding the usage of FM radio. Many were complaining that WP doesn't have FM functionality. Now here's a person who comments as if he's a new-born that he doesn't know what's happening around :D

For your info, companies think that people don't use FM radio nowadays (maybe it's true in US but not in all the countries) and that's why it was disabled in the Lumia devices. But actually there was a demand for it and Nokia is enabling it.

depends on the galaxy...
S4 vs L925 or L928 is a tough call
I'd have the S4 edge a victory with IR and removable storage

RTFA: all WP8 Lumias.

Though Verizon is crummy on updates so the 928 will probably get it around Christmas

verizon is bad with updates, but with wp, updates either come from the manufacturer or microsoft. its not android, so it`ll be timely. and thats not a shot at android., just a note that android updates are slower ecause they go through several hands. im not badmouthing.

Some website say that the lumia 620 do not support FM radio. But you say nothing of that on your website. My question is now: Do the Lumia 620 support FM Radio? Yes or No?
