Dr.Phil is a paid shill, working for the competition, and his/her sole purpose is to write fundamentally negative and dishonest comments about Nokia and/or Microsoft products and services. PHONE ARENA, please stop letting paid employees of other companies interfere with the user feedback process!

What a pathetic attempt to get people's attention away from what is really going on here. If I remember correctly, I just recently commented on an article in which I said that I believed Samsung had gone stale with it's innovation and how I believed they needed to pick up their pace in order to compete with the new offerings from companies like Sony. Would a Samsung employee or fanboy really say that about his own company? In all honesty, I like to tell it like it is no matter what manufacturer or what OS is on the line. Also, isn't it strange that CardiWPfan still hasn't mentioned what company he works for?

Dude. Wtf? U are just lame old douchebag who just wants attention by exploiting other people (Cardi) weaknesses, u know what you should do? How about you continue fantasizing about how big of an arse you are, and go back to smoking weed?

Not to get involved in any conflict between you guys but I have two questions that one of you might be able to answer. When will Sprint get some Nokia Lumia phones? Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile have Windows Phones from Nokia except Sprint. What is going on between Sprint and Nokia?

The majority of people buying Nokia smartphones aren't buying them for WP8, they are buying them because Nokia builds great hardware, and their cameras and mapping app is great. Windows Phone, any version, is an anchor on the SS Nokia, keeping it from sailing to Prosperity Cove.

Just look at the user reviews on WP devices. They are consistently among the highest rated phones accross multiple carriers. Hell the HTC trophy has a 4.4 on verizon's website, the GS4 only has a 4.2. It's true, Nokia is running away with the compitition with their build quality, apps and camera's, the 928 has a 4.8 on verizon's web site. Yeah people really hate windows phone.

Full Disclosure, I own Nokia stock and love these leaks. Nokia can't spend like Samsung or Apple on advertising. So getting the tech world attention for free is a great business move. So leak away.

That is one cluttered home screen. Why not take advantage of the medium and large sized live tiles to make the simplicity of WP8 shine?

I believe that is an adobe emulator of a Windows phone 8 screen with addition tiles. The premise for this is to showcase what a bigger screen phone would look like with multiple tiles.

Actually, that is a fan rendered image. It's not the actual device...not just yet!

It's quite obviously clearly. But I was just saying. Maybe to show the screen resolution and size by using small live tiles.. Idk. I'm not speculating anymore.

Anyone looking at this photo should see that if that were a large device, the thumb holding it would look smaller. As it is, I think it is a hacked Lumia 920. They simply shrank the LiveTiles.

Another bet I wouldn't take... The name. Nokia doesn't name like that. They use a series name, a lá Lumia or Asha, followed by a number, or a letter and number like the N8, or the brand name and a number, like the Nokia 3310. They've even said on a FAQ page for the Lumia 925, that they don't plan on changing their naming structure.

Dude, can you please stop this nonsense, it's annoying. Why the hell would you think that I have fake accounts? I guess you have a fake account too, Mamasmurf right?

I know you are a kiddo, but you guys can't just directly assume that I have fake accounts. Let me ask you a question, is smart*ss your trait?

I thouht we are the same person? lol XD

You seem a little mad. Maybe you should sign out of all of your accounts and take a day off PA. Mamasmurf? Really? If you're trying to be funny, you're only embarrassing yourself. Most people on this site treat you like the joke you are because of the way you act. Time to not let everything get to you and learn to deal with it. And if you take everything to the heart, wait until you get to high school.

Okay, so now I'm embarrassing myself for calling you "Mamasmurf", but don't forget, you're embarrassing yourself as well. Seriously? You and the few smart*sses always assume that I have fake accounts, it's been a month now and you guys still can't forget about the freaking fake accounts. If you want to prove something else, you must show the evidence first before being a smart*ss.

You seem to be using such big, bold words for something so little. And it's funny because of the accounts mentioned, they sound so familiar in terms of the way the comments were constructed. You root for ______ OEM, put an exclamation point at the end followed by an unusual emoticon. You're making it a bigger deal than it really is. I'll tell you what you've said to other people - can't take a little joke?

I would advise papa just ignore this little kid

Tried for a few days, and couldn't handle his BS fanboy comments. I'll call out BS when I see it i don't care how old you are.
