Am I missing something? Why would anyone choose this over the Lumia other than not caring for Nokia? The Lumia is even the same price with a MUCH better camera...

I guess brand loyalty to Samsung? Or maybe they don't want a 4.3" screen like the Lumia. But I do agree with you. If a consumer shops around, they can find a Lumia at the same price, making it a better value for its added features and the Lumia is also available in white if you HAVE to have it.

EDIT: Given the Focus 2's lower price point entering the market, it may become free at national retailers earlier than the Lumia. Then it would be pretty enticing. I remember Target doing this the Pantech Burst with good success.

Can you still not send videos through mms or did the update solve this? I couldn't believe Windows couldn't do this.
