so that line makes me a fanboy, hmm so your what? a deluded idiotic one sided arrogant ....fanboy

i was nice as fanboy was going to be something else. you proved my point and your flimsy reasons like ''replace battery''

your using that as a reason why android is better, do you see how stupid that is

ohh ok..first of all im one f the user who is still using symbian handset, had n 808 as well but my bad luck. Bought it secnd hand and dropped in water while white water rafting and now nt sure when it will b ok. Anyways, to some extent android is better then windows , and some of these pts u pointed out are missing in windows. But frankly a custom rom , replacing batttery , open source etc are just good words and it clearly shows the shortcomings of a manufacturer. Yup usb otg, notification centre with shortcuts is the need of hour. But all will b granted soon. With windows , nokia spent like only few months and u can clearly see how much progress they have made in terms f , additional software, and good hardware. Compare 3 year old android with j.b today you will clearly see a huge makeover. Fyki nokia already had all these developments( most of f the features android has) in maemo already . So just wait , wish and watch..cheers

i wud luv to, and now what i will gain ? Eos for sure. m still using my primary phone as n8 and nt 720. Cos clickin pics is what i really cherish more. Games have a saturation level and with cheat codes they become boring after sometime. At the end of day nobdys forcing you for anything. If u like samsung go for it, if u like htc, sony , lg, moto, b.b then go for it. But i will wait for EOS. :)

Android can't (and won't) be leading forever. WP is the clear winner in the long run because iOS would most likely be irrelevant. Ever heard of the Industry Lifecycle Model? There's your answer...

android hides behind apps that all at core its garbage OS it can run for only so long before not only WP but others gonna take over it unless android is rebuilt from scratch with same stuff yes but better OS

and by no means i considered apps or hardaware support in first comment i was talking totally about OS

For the record, I already answered your question. Try to make sense of my previous comment before you actually reply.

Wrong. Open source software will have the edge here. Specially ROYALTY and FREE LICENSE software is the real winner. Which WP is not. Manufacturers PAY for WP license. WP is already dead as soon as Nokia dies.

@steelicon:

ANDROID is for those who prefer FREE apps which means low income people.

I hate to say it like this because I actually think WP8 is a good OS, but no one likes it. The clear winner is typically a well received product and the general public just doesn't like WP.

you cant speak for everyone, no one liked android when it started, it was pretty terrible tbh

there are no clear winners in tech as it always changes, one will be on top but then fall and another will take its place and so on, androids time will come one just like everything else

the general public do like wp seeing as its growing. its just they need aggressive marketing everywhere. ive started seeing some HTC 8s's, 920's etc

people just take time to try something new, they get too used to what they have.

saying no ones likes it is an absolute and wrong, be like me saying android is for deluded fanboys....judging by this site my statement looks true

You are really sad dude. If you want to be THAT literal, fine. But I don't believe nor do I have to speak for EVERYONE. I keep complimenting WP8 but all you see is fanboy. Well all I see in you is an antagonist, looking for a fight. And I keep telling you, YOU'RE BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE. More people agree with my comment, no matter how pissed off it makes you feel, just by the simple fact that people are not buying it. People didn't buy the G1, but they bought the hell out of the Droid. So it couldn't have been too bad, now could it. Find someone else to fight with because I'm not here for that. And you really don't want it with me dude.

calling me sad when all i did was point out how you literally said no one likes wp. thats an absolute and shows your trying to say no one likes it, not even suggest you worded it like its fact so get off your high horse

im not as you say pissed off, i think your the one with your panties in a twist, nothin in my comment was offensive and it was on topic with what you had said so whats your problem?

'' And you really don't want it with me dude.''

i wasnt looking for a fight but seeing as you seem to think your something else i may call you out on it so come on explain why your so special and i shouldn't call you out

lmao so this is why i dont want a fight with you, because you will act like a child. next you will kick and scream and roll around on the floor

least these comments show you for what you are, you act the big man then the immature child appears. you gave us a laugh though. people on the internet keep dropping to a new low

B*tch, call it whatever you want, this is me trying to walk away but you keep trying to provoke me to argue with you. Your gonna have to do a lot better then this. Your comments string as much as baby punches, I'm just getting tired of responding to you.

considering your the one that initiated this so called 'fight'' and acted arrogant you have no one to blame but yourself. you stated i didnt want this fight as your what? some hard man lol but now your trying to act reasonable and walk away. is that what you do, start something then try slide away when someone calls you on it

and as for baby punches, you replied with ''blah blah blah blah ''etc pretty immature for someone that is supposed to be a big man

i dont have to do better as your unable to do a thing, you built yourself up and now have nothing to come back at me with

if your tired of responding (most likely due to the fact your digging your own grave and have nothing left) then stop replying

you're mentally out matched, so why don't you just quit responding, go to school, learn your algebra, come back in about 5 or 10 years when you might be on my level, then we can discuss this like rational human beings but until then just shut up.

haha wow your arrogance has hit a new level, even worse is your high and mighty attitude is undeserved as you have proven no match for anyone on here.

face facts your outmatched and im not even having to try, you started this i just proved you were wrong in your first comment about no one liking wp and you go off on one with your panties in a twist

come on then kid, outdo me show this amazing intellect you believe you possess

if you cant then take your own advice and shut up

I hope you don't think using more words make you look more intelligent because it just even for that you have absolutely nothing of value to contribute here. All you do is argue, all you do is pick fights, then you try and act like the victim, quit being the victim. you're asking for a little girl and I don't want to fight with children.

and the same general public is going nuts for lumia 520. so is it the price constraint or bad mouthing an o.s?? Already 520 is outselling droids within its price range, most people dont have knowledge about windows o.s other then tecn savvy guys, people who come to the website like phonearena. For general public anything thats shining and rising is the need of hour. So once an o.s is well known then only peopl start rooting for it. Like in case of android thats quite common now with every manufacturer and common public. Ios and windows are little sophisticated

That phone is doing well because it's cheap. There are some really cheap Android devices that are selling extremely well, but that doesn't mean they're great phones. And im not saying the 520 is a bad phone, just saying that's why it's selling.

L520 is one of those phones that are app restricted due to 512MB RAM.

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/winphone/forum/wp8-wpapps/app-suddently-not-support-for-512mb-ram-device/694f2523-e803-4435-b8e2-da9009d95ec8

Lu720, I understood his question and I am aware of the fact that asphalt was updated to support 512 MB devices.

My explanation still stands. app developers decide the RAM requirement and then build the app accordingly. Gameloft probably has good reason to have pulled out the 512 MB ram app and replace it with the previous version.

It is disappointing, I agree.
