Nokia pokes fun at HTC: Lumia phones can be used with gloves in winter time, unlike HTC's handsets

cheap plastic? most Lumia phone are made of top of the line polycarbonate. It's so good and works so well that Apple copied it for the iPhone 5C.

Get your fact straight!

Always coming to WP articles with your nonsense. Being cheap isn't what Nokia does... LG? Sure... SS? Sure but not Nokia.

poop sometimes looks like chocolate but its not

As an Android fan who's held one of the new Luminas, I can tell you that they are solid, well constructed devices. Photos might make them look cheap, but they look good in person.

If only they would make them run Android - then they'd be perfect. :}

trickster I think u forgot the HTC one x had polycarbonate first and then lumia crap came out. I hate Nokia now thinking that they can get an extra boost of market share by making fun of others. I hope Nokia closes down and sell there camera patents to other more useful companies out there, you sad excuse for thech

Get your facts straight before argue, because Nokia N9 was first from nokia with polycarbonate, and even Lumia 800 was before HTC one X.

HTC one x announced 2012, February

Nokia N9 announced 2011, June

Nokia Lumia 800 announced 2011, October

"their" and "tech", sorry bothers me when people rant about a company and they can't even spell correctly, anyhow nokia has done great with their devices, brought the best camera on any mobile device with their 1020, the best display around with their 1520, as well as top battery life that even outlasted the note 3. All companies do the same to gain market share from others, is simple marketing. Nokia's unibody design is better than the HTX One X and yes I used both and you can tell the difference, nokia is a very solid device and I applaud them because even though WP8 didn't have all of the apps and updates, they constantly released their own software that improved the user experience, like the pro and smart cam, nokia refocus, new tech like recomposing after zooming in by taking the full res picture and able to focus on a different area, which no other smartphone does.

Polycarbonate can be high quality. Samsung used absolutely terrible polycarbonate for the Gaalaxy S3/S4 and Note 2.

It is cheap haha polycarbonate = plastic bud
And besides that, why get a windows phone to use with gloves when you could get a gs4?

easy answer have you seen the performance issues? yes you might root and flash a custom rom, but out of the box the performance is terrible, the nexus 5 have way better performance.

That has got to be one of the most ignorant comments I've ever read, WP software is the inspiration for Android and iOS7 going Flat, Tile like and minimalism, Android even took the Windows Phone 3 dots. WP is a widely praised OS, Nokia Lumia hardware is not the most cutting edge but its up there with many other flagships, the Lumia 1520 though has the best specs probably for any smartphone.

Lumia sales including all off it's series still couldn't overtake the sales of Samsung S4 and iPhone 5....

Lumia series is classed as budget lowend cheap devices...ask any public what Lumia is great at: Lumia520

The scroogle campaign is crap, I bet you use Bing though too? Haha
Android has been, and always will be the better and more popular OS.. 80+% market share to what? Like 10

Say what?? I hold the lumia 1050 a while ago, and it doesn't only look great, but feels great as well. Nokia's build quality is unmatched. Slap android os on one of those lumias and I might abandon samsung.
