One thing that's bothering the heck out of me is that answering an incoming call is a two-step process. "Slide Up" and then touch "answer" or "ignore". This is where I am really missing the Android's slide up to answer or slide down to ignore...Is there any setting that would enable a one-touch/gesture response to incoming calls?
Not sure if this is a WP8 flow, or whether it is specific to Nokia's design...
Just one more thing on the list of hundreds of things that we wish were more customizable. It's part of the shock of transitioning to WP from Android where there's a battery-sucking app or widget to control anything you can imagine. But to me it is worth it to not have to worry about such triviality. In other words, if I know I can tinker with something, I will, forever. But if I can't then I'm fine with it.

You know, this is one of the first posts that reflect how I felt about Windows phone (7.5) when I moved from Android. I just felt liberated from endlessly fiddling with trivial options and settings. I do sympathise with the OP though but It does stop you answering a call in your pocket and I imagine that Google would have swung for MS if ther interface started to look the same as android.
same here. Remote starting and built in Bluetooth are the best auto innovations in a while.
unfortunately for me, i have one of those pesky german cars that make an option out of everything, and while affording the engine and wheels, there wasn't anything left for something as ancillary as bluetooth :(
New to WP8 and just saw this. Wondered how to silence the phone during a ring, assumed volume or power would do it.
Once I figured out that simply sliding up would not automatically answer the call, I saw the logic in then asking how you want the call handled. It's workable for me.
For some, it may be a big transition. Android's slide either way on one screen (ignore or answer) was OK, but offered no easy text, and I like that option on WP8. BlackBerry was simply a matter of red button ignore, or green answer. They all have their ways of doing things.
Finally, have to agree with some previous posters. I probably fiddled with my Android for a year before I got it to where I wanted it, and who knows, I may still tweak it as apps come and go. The latest was a Launcher WP8 app that emulates Wp8 OS rather than the icon driven Android OS. It never stops. Windows gives you so much less to have to worry about because so much less is customizable, sort of like BlackBerry. That works for me. :)
