    We don't have anything in writing saying device X will get update Y, but based on comments MS has made it seems clear MS expects every WP8 device to get the Blue update. Theoretically, carriers could spoil that plan, but that is unlikely.

    Lumia 820 and 920 will definitely able to cope with the updates soon to come since both of them are having decent ram.

    No No I meant that comment in a good way, there are some people who hate everything about wp8 just because they are on android/Ios and feel its superior so they are haters and they will hate my comment :p, I actually love your avatar it makes me smile for no reason.

    I don't play games on the phone at all no fun gaming on a tiny screen, I only installed sudoku for playing once in a while.

    Have seen 2 or 3 crashes inside whatsapp (sometimes it takes long to load, sometimes it just hangs itself), but hey thats whatsapp at fault who don't give rats a** to updating their program to work smoothly with WP8. WP8 as an OS, is smoother than the smoothest chocolate you've ever eaten which melts in your mouth.

    I have a nasty habit of exiting every app before I start another, the max no. of apps running would be 2 (if I have to multi task), the same applied for android too (But then I couldn't control the background apps which led to hangs and crashes like a mad kid terrorizing the house for not receiving his favorite candy for lunch).

    Anyone looking for
    -Best bang for the buck
    -Robust build
    -Good battery backup
    -Good camera (Not like the 920, but obviously not sh*t either)
    -Sexy looks, literally sexy at each angle
    -Good sound quality (I use JBL J22i earphones and not the ones that come with Nokia, so am not sure how's the quality in that but in JBL its ear cracking)

    Apart from these the regular wp8 advantages like smooth ui, lagless etc.,

    I got one myself and simple loving it.

    The earphones that come with the phone is simply rubbish, absolute JUNK. It's clear and all, but you can't hear for nuts if you are on a traffic or place with a little ambient noise.
    Good to hear that its performing well on JBL J22i, I wanted to know exactly this, that on good earPhones is the Dolby and enhancement working well..!!
    So you think investing on a top class earphone like JBL is worth it? Just as a second opinion.
    If you can do me a small favor montsa007, would you compare your Nokia earphones with JBL and write the result here, please?



    To answer John Balacano's question, I got the phone 3 days back:-

    Looks:- I have a black one, the moment you lock the screen, my friend - it is BEAUTY to BEHOLD. When you go to settings I believe Nokia uses Helvatica font (not sure though), and it looks as if the words are right on your glass.

    Build:- feels so good and slick like in your hands...really awesome.

    Battery: Can't say for sure now, because people say it gives almost 2 days for normal use. I think it will, because for these 3 days I have been using the phone extensively and didn't charge it for almost 18 hours straight - Installed stuff, downloaded, played game, messaged, mailed, whatsapp'ed and it stood strong :) (right now its on charge while I am typing this, almost after 19 hours)

    OS Feel:- Smooth like the smoothest butter, you can slide and swipe with your nail and gloves on, its so sensitive that you barely need any pressure on the screen.

    Screen:- Black Beauty with splashed colors :P

    Camera:- One of a kind for the price range !! you have use it, to believe it. and all those lenses, oh mann !!

    RAM: well its less, and I think the usable RAM is 395 or something(saw with System Info app), but I have opened 4 tabs (FB, TWITTER, AE 3D MOTOR, EXPLORER) and there was no noticeable lag...!!
    However with one app, one stupid app named "PicStyle" (PicStyle | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (भारत)) there was a crazy lag, but I realized it was the app's problem, because other similar apps (glam me, creative studio, camera 360) like smooth except this.
    I played Asphalt 7 heat and no problem at all. I played NFS Hot Pursuit (game is crap). Now playing Pokemon Platinum with emulator VGBC8 !!
    so you get the idea !!

    Calls: I did get some disturbance on the earPiece, but can't say for sure its the phone's fault.
    but couple of people did say my voice is very clear but slightly low on pitch terms.

    OVER ALL ITS F'KG AWESOME, FRATELLO !!

    I think that holds true for most of the headphones that come included with the phone. the HTC ones I have are the same, but at 3 a pair I don't really mind. For the big stuff I've got a pair of 50 Sennheisers (HD-205)

    Does anyone have idea why MS has made so complex design in setting custom/userdefined ringtone ????????..... and the call log is hopeless.... I own lumia 720... and why videos shot with phone camera saves into photos->camera roll area rather than "music+videos" area ....
