You realize why right? Where are the complaints of Android updates? When is the G1 getting Jelly Bean?

Just to point out the obvious... Lets get something clear. This is an update patch. Huge difference. Lumias are not getting updates any faster than Android which is about 2 per year. Both OS get patches as needed when needed. Getting patches usually means there was problems...

Lumia will get update when ever MS releases update for WP8 unlike Android where Google keeps releasin new versions but OEMs rearly updates devices and if they do the user hav to wait months to get an update.

Just a few questions its been nearly 6 months Google released 4.2 how many devices runnin it? Why 44% of android devices still runnin Gingerbread a 2 year old OS?

cripton805, the only updates that you driod zombies receive on Android are malware improvements from cyber-criminals who are refining the apps they make available in the Google playstore...

Did you read this article or did you just skip it and go right a head to bashing? I guess you're not smart enough to read the article first.

WP7 can be updated until WP7.8

Can you upgrade an android from Gingerbread to Jelly Bean? Bet you can, but after that you won’t be able to use your phone, the hardware necessary to run it simply isn’t there. The same here, the WP8 is completely different and won’t run on WP7 hardware. Sometimes the software extends to certain limits that the hardware has to be new/replaced. Everybody dealing with informatics is doing this all the time.

Sorry to know your bad experience with WP8 but I can assume something is wrong with your equipment for it to be turning off constantly, you should have exchanged it when you could. Best to do is install the latest updates and see if it improves.

You can use a dictionary to translate the sentence "providing stability to the system" to your language if you don't know what it means.

What Nokia said was "stability improvements" which means this version is more stable than the previous.

Nokia has always been fast when it comes to pushing performance updates (even when they used to be the king) and it is good to see that they are still continuing that trend.

Lol @ Andrea.. Girl read what you type before submitting,you need a carrot too troll? How about don't reply at all.
how can you comment on a phone not upgrading and they are doing just that? Do you just like to flame. My guess is that you don't or haven't ever owned a l920.. You have the same comments over and over and all are false

Nokia was always good with updates.
I remember getting an update two years after the purchase of 5800XM.

"two years after the purchase of 5800XM"... if you don’t check for updates it won’t receive a single one.

My 5800xm received if not mistaken 6 updates. Each one turned the phone better and better.

Lol.
Let me tell you a secret.. I hate and despise ignorance, hatred, bias, monopoly and arrogance..and I don't hate Nokia.
And I'm not a faboy of neither Android nor Samsung.
I am a fan of tech, objectivity and fair play.
I owned and loved Nokia phones but just can't and won't get over the fact that Nokia turned against itself because of arrogance and money Microsoft threw at them.
The had fantastic chances with Maemo/Meego and Symbian, and they just killed it!
Those are facts

@windroid, what I meant was that the last update I got was after two years.
