That is true, Andro. While most would say the 900 was a better device than HTC's Titan and T2, the phones were nearly the same size and weight. The Titan's made much better use of the space for actual screen and there was a ton of wasted acreage in the 900.

I agree. From afar it looked beautiful. Clicked the link and saw the humongous bottom bezel. When will companies learn that "Sausage Fingers" is not the dominant, potential group of buyers? :(

Great that Nokia are releasing PureView now but I still feel Windows Phone is the weak link in this relationship. Now had Nokia introduced this camera technology on Android I'm pretty confident Nokia sales would be flying! Unfortunately I'm not sure this is enough to save Nokia.

Agreed,I've seen the Nokia 610 drop to 120 bucks no contract and still see staff really really strugling to sell even one despite the low level market price. Windows and live tiles are the major turn off. If Nokia went android with pure view they could have androids best seller

I completely agree with you. The live tiles itself is the major turn off. Is it an acquired taste? We'll just see from the consumer response when these devices hit shelves.

I like them. If you do it right, they look nice. Otherwise it can start to look a little cluttered. Its like Moto Blur used to be.. you had to turn half of it off to be able to make sense of it, lol

Once they allow us to customize the tiles individually I think it will be a lot better.

I don't really think the Lumia 920 is real, cause that large black bezel took too much space.

just for android 4.1 but the others are sh&t, i have a galaxy s2 and recently bought a samsung focus (yes, a samsung focus) for second phone and now i want to crash my galaxy s2. how a 1ghz can run a OS at almost the same speed than a dual core krait? naaaa android sucks

there is a big difference between any device running 4.0/4.1 and any device that is not. put the S2 on ICS/JB and then try to complain. Stop trolling.

yea, thats because you have no idea what your talking about

the american S2 does NOT use the dual core Krait S4. It uses the older Crapdragon S3 which is a junk chip. Exynos or bust.

That is kinda the point though, ain't it remixfa? Look, you have been very open minded to WP and I respect the dog-snot out of you for it, but most people do not buy device to root it and put different OS versions on it, and a ton of users never even upgrade when it does come from the carriers. They also do not examine what chip set is where (though I always take your word and King's word on chip performances). They want to turn a device on, set it up (or have it set up for them), and just know it will work. WP is trying to be the best in that regard. dr_fajardo12's experience shows there is potential for WP 8 if they can get people to give it a try.

well yea, sure..

but what does that have to do with him claiming his SGS2 has a S4 Krait in it? lol

And why not? I have an HD7 that I let my daughter use for her self, and its rooted with custom roms n stuff on it. :)

Your missing out on a lot if you dont do that kind of stuff!

i was wrong remixfa, does not haver a s4 krait, but it has a dual core - 1ghz RAM, so should be way faster than a single core - 512 RAM right?

Love the new colors! Hope the colors and PureView 21MP camera are real! Dislike the hump of the 808 so 21MP is fine by me! I'm a great fan of WIndows Phone so I'm excited over the Nokia, SS, and HTC leakages of WP8 devices!

I just hope the sound is much better as I do prefer to listen to music on a Samsung device as opposed to a Nokia otherwise a diamond in the Roth.

ooh.. I see what you did there!! :) :) :)
Diamond Dave will always be the best Van Halen singer. :)

Samsungs normally sound better because they use really high end sound chips. The SGS1 and SGS3 both used the best in existence. The SGS2 changed it up a bit... so it wasnt quite as good.. which is why they went back.
