sleek design with 41mp not possible
nokia just wanted mobile to be thin so it is just 8mp and this camera is even better...

I think Windows Phone 8 has a lot of potential. I'm pretty excited to see it in action. I've been with Android for a long time and Google is the only one actually doing amazing things. I've had Jelly Bean for a couple weeks now and it is so superior to anything else. I like the direction theses phones are going though and could easily see myself with one in a couple years.

i disagree, the screen could be even bigger and i would like it even more, except for the "more megapixels" for me 16-21mp would been enough it that didnt make it thicker, customization? lol this is WP, here is functionality what matters, not some useless theme pack and icons, i like the way microsoft operates now, every manufacturer have to add USEFUL apps instead of crap skins, and nobody cares about desktop/laptops they all have the same windows theme and all they add are some apps, and microSD expansion? well thats a miss, 32gb is enough for most people anyway

Not being exclusive would have been better also. This should be released on all major carriers with a same day launch also. That's what is hurting Nokia.

Wow. Bottle-opener? How did that get in the list? I don't remember any Android, iOS, Windows phone getting bottle openers (unless you suggest buying a cover).
Btw, can we expect you to make a similar list when the iPhone 5 releases? Surely you won't have to do much. A lot of points you mentioned here (unchanged design, UI) can simply be copy-pasted and put there.

Ok I think you guys are just nitpicking. The customizable UI is not a Nokia thing it is a Microsoft thing. And regardless of the collaboration, i think its fine for the ones who want that kind of look for their device. Furthermore, size of the phone is a preference as not everyone wants a small one just like not everyone wants a large one.

Hands down I think this device really is one of the best around judging alone by the effort that went into improving the experience rather than just stuffing in new tech.

I dont know why there is so much antagonism agianst nokia. they have brought to the table some serious inovations and people say, still there is something missing. And the bigger camera sensor saga is crap, cause everyone wants a slim phone, and say if lumia 920 had a huge 21mp sensor or what ever, the phone would have been huge. And people will be crowing about the size and weight. 'Remember samething happened with the 808, now people are praising the 808 so they can banter the lumia 920. Come on appreciate some thing amazing. It has one of the the best displays (Pure motion HD) with 332 ppi making it one of the best beating the iphone retina display, A pretty awsome innovation in camera technology with floating lense, curved glass, clear black technology (refined), scratch resistant unibody, wireless charging, better sensitive touch screen. And people are complaning!, "there is'nt enough innovation''. Common guys be logical and reasonable.

Sorry but you can't have both compact and a Nokia 808 quality camera. There is nothing wrong with a phone that's the thickness of an E72.

If it had Android on it, that would have made it a better phone. You missed that option. I know you did it intentionally to seem unbiased, but it is true.

"...the same UI could become boring for users....". Are iOS users bored as well? Why have I never read that iOS users might get bored with their start menu OS? Dumbest reason ever. This is worse than the bottle opener.

ok, the iphone
doesnt have micro sd,
doesnt have more mega pixels than 8,
its not slim,
they all look the same (jus because you can put a picture on the back doesnt mean it looks totally different).
and most important: DOEST HAVE BEER OPENER (at least without a stupid case)

NOT TO MENTION: 3.5 screen, so freaking small to this times.

and im not a wp lover. i just hate apple lol

Does the iPhone 5 plan to include a bottle opener?

Do S3 or Note 2 have it?
