Nokia outlines 'more human' brand promise... and unknown Lumia peeks out?

0. phoneArena 07 May 2013, 10:03 posted on

Nokia has two events planned for the next two weeks, and they're doing a pretty good job at keeping the agendas under wraps. We can make some educated guesses, of course -- Ashas in India on the 9th, and Catwalk in the UK on the 14th -- but so far, no one seems to have any solid intelligence. We were, however, privy to a recently-published document (cover pictured above; no, we don't know what phone that is) that lays out some very broad strategies the company is taking, under an overarching brand promise they're referring to as "more human."...

Honestly speaking, I'm tired of android...its just the same from 4.0 till 4.2 and most probably 4.3 will also be the same...all android manufacturers are bundling useless feature and most of them dont work most of the time(i mean samsung)....the application selection is awful when compared with iOS and android is damn to laggy
I just want a mind blowing camera, good design, an acceptable UI, large high res display, less lag and few more things which I believe nokia's next generation lumia will have

Not to mention that each android manufacturer "must" use a bulky custom skin on top of a perfectly good stock UI...and that skin interferes with the ability to quickly update when a new Android version arrives. Yes there are advantages and disadvantages to both Android and WP8 but the disadvantages are definitely tipping me toward switching to Nokia.

the good thing about android is customisation and the features, customisation means every phone can suit different peoples taste and personality as not all android phones are the same (htc sense, motoblur, touch wiz) etc. Where as windows 8... your pretty much stuck on those live tiles and maybe add a few colours and wallpapers?

Features, sure some are gimmicky but there are many good android features that nokia (windows 8) dont have, like multiview, s-pen, hand/air gestures, photosphere and choices of rugged waterproof phones just to name a phew.

In short, android has enough phones to suit everybody's needs and wants.

I agree with your points except about the lag in android. Its practically gone now and imho on par with the competition.

then switch to WP... it's basically the same since the first version, the only major UI change has been the resizable tiles... android may be the same from version 4, but it still has far more features than WP. What's more, since version 4 many interseting things have been added, like google now, actions in the notification bar, lockscreen widgets... way ahead of WP8 actually. As to lagging... well, this happens only with entry level devices, but at least games do run even on entry level phones, while temple run requires a whopping 1GB of ram on WP, skype and angry birds do not run on 256MB phones... the reason why WP does not lag is because it had very high hardware requirements, but now that entry level WP phones have appeared... guess what? but an entry level WP, install some apps and you'll discover that it lags as well. Or that some apps don't run at all. Buy and android with JB and at least 1GB of ram and the lags are completely tolerable (altough android isn't, and probably will never be, optimized for lagging). Buy an entry level android and at least you'll be able to run anything (except, of course, complex games).

dude, what kind of android you using? my photon q lags slighty every now and then but thats because i have themes, emulators, and game apps downloaded onto it.

ios does not lag as much because their is less customization and things that its system has to push! with android you can pretty download and put anything on the ui, hence the lag every now and then. if its severe i suggest un-installing a few things or switching the animations OFF in the developers section of your settings, before complaining out loud.

Look at the numbers though; Samsung and HTC are the big names in Android. Very few people get the stock experience. (And enough with the "just root it" argument. Custom ROM users are a slim minority.)

you are right, what i was trying to get at was that a lot of people who bash on android are usually thinking of a device thats running touchwiz or sense when in reality if that same device was running vanilla android all would be good

:P
