@#1 It still needs to learn how to reply and thumb up comments on Phonearena.

I will change it, if you explain how to click the reply and thumbs up button, here in PhoneArena, through IE10 of WP8.

I'm currently liking comments and replying you through IE10 on my Lumia 520. You clearly haven't used a Windows Phone before.

I haven't been on this website using WP. Try the desktop site.

You have to go to the mobile site man

Nope. Its the desktop version. Since the reply and the thumbs up button appear only when the mouse hovers over a comment, i have to place my thumb on a comment for those buttons to become visible Still, i can't press it. I'm on Lumia Black update (GDR3) and that problem hasn't been resolved. @21 "You clearly haven't used a Windows Phone before." I had a WP7.5 device, and now, a WP8 device. @24 "So he can like and reply to comments? Haha, he managed to reply to my comment!" Through my desktop PC

Don't feel bad, it doesn't do it either on my Lumia 620. Have to use my Android tab to come here...LOL. Simple proof that none of the big three OS' are perfect, however each has some very distinct advantages. Peace.

I'm commenting from my 1520 so I'm not sure what you mean

Try it on the desktop version of this website (browser->settings->Website preferences->desktop version and reload PhoneArena). It works on every other OS.

I think if I have a Windows Phone and I need to see notifications, chances are I have a Live Tile for that particular app, so I don't see a reason why I (keyword: I) need to get so hyped about a notification centre.

You don't need a notification center. Live tiles actually work better in my opinion. MS is adding it to pacify the android hoard who don't want to try something different.

Actually, I highly doubt they will add a notification centre, since they are trying so hard to be different from other OSes

Give a real music player with a widget and some good shmups and I'm set! 1520

What about your music tile? It displays in real time and if you hit the volume rocker it brings up the music playing

I think they could work on the overall appearance of the notification center a bit more. Looks too plain and old.

That screenshot only shows the setup for the notification center, not the actual notification center.

44. GeekMovement unregistered

Good point, you're right, I missed that. They could work on the settings menu design in that case (:

I dont understand why Windows is just now adding notification alerts to their phones!! Better late than never I guess
