Well this sucks honestly, Xbox Video not being supported? I mean how can a company do such thing... These I'm feeling led down with more issues and articles about Windows Phone 8. It led me to think that Windows Phone 8 still need more polishing.

everything needs polishing, nothing every is without problems

i agree this is kinda a slap in the face as you would expect this to be standard . but lets hope they evolve the os and bring it to a higher level

just give it time really

This is not about polishing!
It is a serious sign that Microsoft either doesn't care either doesn't got a real clue on what they are doing.

The OS is out for more than two years now, and they are leaving out the BASIC sync function from the previous version.
And unified, complete sync is what this release should be all about in the first place!
Just unacceptable. It's like deliberately making fools out of everyone.

If you want to stick with such company and give it time, then good luck!
I say, rather give it up already

''If you want to stick with such company and give it time, then good luck!

so when android was starting, those who stuck with it were stupid by your logic, see you forget everything needs time to establish itself and find its place. you lot just think android was always great and nothing else is needed

so google forcing everyone to have a g+ account what would you call that? ohh right as its google its acceptable isnt it. and the latest issues with the newest version of android? ohh yeah again there fine as its android

please if your not gonna be fair or atleast stick to what your devoted to then dont comment. sure im gonna get the whole i'll comment when i want but if i now went on every nexus 4 article and comented purple flare or suddenly lte doesnt matter android users change there tune you all would go into defensive overload

android fans are the new ifans

When android was in its second year, it was the only alternative to iOS. You had no real third choice that could compete.

Now times are different. You have a fully functional, mature OS in android. If windows can't get it's acts together on a basic level after two years, it is not a wise alternative really.
Remember, Microsof's original plan was to disrupt the duopoly by the end of last year .. windows phone 7 was actually the longest baked, MOST TESTED OS IN HISTORY.
So really you are fooling your self.

And I'm not a fanboy, I just always support what's best.
Now I want jolla to offer something better than android because that would ultimately benefit us users.

you always support whats best, you cant define whats best as it would be whats best for you might be worse for others...you sound like a fanboy there

second there was symbian, the os before os's became a war. also you say android is mature but id say its still (well i hope) in its infancy that way we can expect to see more development in the os. which would move others to do the same

''Now I want jolla to offer something better than android because that would ultimately benefit us users.''

this i find funny, if that would benefit customers then so would wp8 and windows. infact wp8 would more as its not tied to android. jolla sailfish is it will rely on android apps for along time which isnt offering much new for us. i hope there successful and use android until they have traction and able to have there own apps that are optimized. which would give them an advantage over android.

anyway im not fooling myself , i just want more choice and im willing to give company's time rather then slate the os just because i use something else.

also i noticed android users only sayin good things about jolla because it supports android........talk about new and choice they only want android....

Fair reply, but I knew what I was talking.
Symbian is still my all time favorite OS actually.
But the fact is, it just wasn't built for touch screens.
Are you saying it was a viable alternative to phones running froyo/gingerbread at the time ?

As for windows, I actually think windows mobile had heaps of potential..it could've been Android competitor had Microsoft not abandoned it. HTC HD 2 was a wonderful testament to that, for example. I loved that phone.

WP 8 won't benefit users because it doesn't challenge android at all. It is more of a degradation of technology and interfaces potential imo.

at the time i believe symbian was ahead of gingerbread with its fuctionality, where nokia dropped the ball was rushing to adapt it to touchscreens andtaking to long to get it at the point it was when they killed it. belle fp2 was ready for competition all nokia needed was to give it the eye candy and build the ecosystem up.

see i think wp8 is the inbetween os of android and ios, refreshing too which is good. but all im saying is give it more time...s ure it might nose dive but it may step up its game and blow the competition away.....theres that saying burning to strong

what i mean is android has come far fast but you may start notices a slow down in new functions etc. thats where wp8 could capitalize and push through

so it needs time. i wonder how much time microsoft need to "evolve". They have almost 2 years and all they did was remove the good stuff and basic funtions of their os. Im so excited i'm about to wet my pants.
by the way. ur a d**k. cockmongler...

give m$ 4 years and all of their features will be gone retard. you dont get my point do you? stop comparing android to wp cause they are worlds apart. just like your logic, and mine.

haha your so arrogant, you think your logic isnt flawed because i think you have no logic to start with

seeing as wp8 is more feature rich then wp7 your point falls flat its evolving and moving forward. wp8 and android are closer then you think. but you enjoy believing what you want fanboy. deluded people like you will live in there lonely little world

and calling me retard, really coming from you. but i wouldnt call you that it would be insulting retards your worse

I've jumped to WP8 from android. This is the first thing that I was like WTF.. Still a much more fresh UI than android if only it can get more apps i would be perfectly happy. Seriously the UI on android too looks the same as it did 4 years ago.. It needs a fresh look imo
