I wonder why would people always wish for what is not in the phone instead of being satisfied with how good it is..

Even if that is true, my SINGLE core wp7 still runs smoother than most dual core android devices
Im sure this dual core wp8 will still be smoother than even quad core adroid devices.
specs don't mean much

"And please Nokia, next time you reveal a phone that basically crushes anything currently on the market, launch it like you mean it. Those low confidence, monitor reading presenters did not do the product justice."

Don't forget the fraudulent videos and photos that were offered up as having been taken with the Lumia 920 that turned out to not have been taken with the 920.

The other problem Nokia and MS have is that competing products (iPhone for example) will have been selling for at least a month and a half before you start to sell your toy(s). On VZW, AT&T and Sprint (and others in the example of the GS III). If the objective is to maximize customer opportunity, not getting your toys available on other networks is a serious f*ck-up. Android got a huge boost by VZW pushing it as an alternative to the iPhone....

This phone is incredibly desirable, with its design, screen, camera and all the other bells and whistles. And I'm sure to pick one up.
However, Nokia should have been able to give a launch window on Wednesday, together with a price. Why were they not able to do that?

And please Nokia, next time you reveal a phone that basically crushes anything currently on the market, launch it like you mean it. Those low confidence, monitor reading presenters did not do the product justice.

So you agree that the Lumia 920 having the best screen, camera and design then, since you were not able to name any better phones?

Processor and RAM is less comparable across platforms, since various OS's have various needs. Screen, camera and design are comparable regardless of OS.

Which phones sport a better package then?

Am I bashing Nokia actually?
I was just laughing at Veigald's joke. Can you please quote the part where I'm bashing Nokia?

How am I being stupid exactly?
It's funny, coming from someone who couldn't write down his thought in a single comment.
You seem mad, bro.. Allow me to return you the advice. =]

Always fun to see how people turn to ridicule and defensive bashing when they know they have no real case. SleepingOz provides a great example of such here, with just a childish taunt in place of any actual arguments.

IPS LCD is not what I call the best screen, the best pixel density may be.. AMOLED Clear Black display would've been better.
And screen sensivity can be tweaked on multiple devices running on custom ROMs.

Best camera is not sure yet, I'm still waiting for independant reviews as Nokia was found cheating!

You mean aesthetic by design right? As I wouldn't call 185g and 11mm thin the best design. Also aesthetic is subjective, the new glossy finish looks cheap to me. I prefer the old white Lumia900 with its matte finish.
Also the XPERIA LINE, the One X and the Cloud Mobile have better aesthetics imho.

"Processor and RAM is less comparable across platforms"
Not really, more RAM allows you to run more apps in background. The more apps you have running in background, the more processing power you need to run them.
It's called Multitasking with no "pseudo" in front.

And oh what about memory storage?

Each phone has its pros and its cons, A "phone that basically crushes anything currently on the market" needs to have no cons at all!
So your statement is irrelevant and biased if it wasn't a joke!

True, Android phones won't be even nearly as smooth as WP7.5 if they don't have those dual-core and quad -core processors, but yet Android is very functional.

Lol...Don't worry, I'm not here to start a fight. The reason I say you're always bashing Nokia is because of your previous comments on other posts about this Nokia phone.

I think we would all appreciate if you could be a little bit more objective.
By the way, I really recommend you to take my advice ;)

What is fraudulent about a disclaimer that screen images are simulated? All Nokia had to do was put in a disclaimer and the issue would not have occurred. When does ANY manufacturer mention that similar features are available from competitors?

I suspect that when the third-party reviews are in, the 920's camera will be an incremental improvement over competitors. Unfortunately, the dramatic potential of the PureView 808's 42 Gb camera will be a lost opportunity. Meanwhile, the Nokia fans are left to be defensive over criticism of their darling.

There is a reason why the market whacked Nokia's share price after the announcement. Actually, more like 3 reasons - 1.) No announced ship date, 2.) No announced sell price, and 3.) The problems with the roll-out.

You're wrong, The Lumia 920 is 10,7mm thick same as the Nokia E73. In comparison, the iphone 3GS is 12,3mm.

Also, the White Nokia Lumia 900 has a glossy finish too. The phoen might look cheap, but onece you hold it in your hands it feels really premium.

That's what I thought!
Calling someone stupid and not being able to give a valid reason makes you the stupid one.
Well, you need your own advice more than me.

With this much limitations, restrictions and pseudo-multitasking, it's easy to make an os run smooth.
Oh, how many tries will it take MS to make WP as functional as Android?
