If the UK sales chart of retailer Expansys is to be of any indication, the Nokia Lumia 920 seems to be doing quite well right now, as it's currently owning the top spot...

It's top selling from one retailer. It is what it is.

Well, what can I say, do the same for iPhone 5 or S3 and any 920 owner will get a good laugh.

This article by Ray S. is hater approved... Seriously why do guy like Ray S and Victor H even bother with writing Microsoft/Windows/Nokia/Windows Phone related articles??

I honestly believe that they share the "TROLL" account and comment on their own work after publishing it.

Ray wrote a nice review about the Lumia 820. Gotta give him credit there.

I hope this is real and not some sort of fluke. WP8 may never beat iOS or Android, but it deserves to at least be a solid #3

Oh, I think WP (perhaps not 8, but it stands a chance) will beat ios if ios continues on its downward spiral. Personally I predict Android and WP will have a duopoly with either iOS, Bada, Blackberry, or Jolla's OS as 3rd

if MS kept going like this it's going to top Android and IOS all they need now is more apps and maybe a wallpaper to the home screen would be a nice thing. also a notification center and thats all. i can't wait to get the Nokia Lumia 920 i'm not buying it now cuz of the st*pid exams :(

Eh, wallpaper would clash with the tiles. Some of the advertised phones look a bit chaotic with all the different tiles competing for attention, but still well laid out - to each their own I guess. I personally like the color tiles (like messaging, phone, email, etc) with the updates there and just a few tiles outside the color scheme. Notifications are already in WP, but not a center/bar for them, which could be OK but just a quick scroll through the Start screen will indicate what programs have something worthy of attention. One thing I noticed about Android was that sometimes stuff gets missing in the notification center anyway or doesn't populate there by design

Maybe he means a wallpaper background like we have in Windows 8, that would also give something special to Windows Phone ...

Perhaps, but unless there's a border around the tiles, I think a background image might clash. That said, I would like more color options for the background than just white or black. I don't mind the Nokia blue on black I have now, but having only white as an alternate is too bright and, to me, garish.

Thats true, imagine orange tiles on a blue background, in my opinion just gorgeous !! :( +1

if the tiles remained the same a wallpaper wouldn't effect it, for example if the tiles are colored in red and puts a wallpaper on the screen the tiles would be on the wallpaper framed in the red color so u will be able to read whats in the tile without having the wallpaper to mess the text. or at least they should add more colors to the wallpaper ur stuck with the light or dark.hhhh, i know the notifications are in the tiles but the notification center is nice like Android it lets u control the wi-fi,etc. for me even without the wallpaper and the notification center i'm still going to buy the Lumia 920 (of course the Red version) hhh

let's say they did that wy, then tell me how would u see the background? since the gap between tiles is small, the background is just useless

65. nooraldeen (Posts: 49; Member since: 21 Oct 2012)


yup it's small but still a background is better than black or white color , it makes u feel that there is something out there. or as i said more colors to the background

66. asseek (Posts: 164; Member since: 12 Sep 2012)


maybe, i would prefer a background IF they offer a customization to control the opacity (transparency) of the tiles, and make it a bit blury, so u don't lose the contrast between icons within the tiles and the background

ya they can do all kind of stuff but all they did is black or white background but still it's very nice even without the background

the first and second generation Windows smart did not have the high tech specs to make people desire to buy them on contract or otherwise but now that the Windows Smart phones have as much high tech as the phones they compete with people will give them a try. Nokia however missed the sweet sized smart phone they need a 4.3 inch diagonal high def screen smart phone with Gorilla glass that also has all the specs of the Lumia 920 except a pure VUE camera. some folks want a smart phones that is not as big in the hand as the Big Nokia 920. If only nokioa had made an 4.3 icn high def screen lumia 820 or lumia 822 with gorilla glass they would have had a super one two punch in smart phone selection because both these Smart have the high tech specs of the 920 but donot have a goriila glass high def screen or a pure vue camers
