    But to be honest... they aren't that wrong. They're just not informed about the new "update".
    They still think WP8 is not that different from WP7, and we all know how bad WP7 was.

    A friend I ain't seen since last Christmas asked could he look something up on my phone, he's obviously never used a Windows Phone because after a minute or so he said,
    "What the hells happened to your phone? Its gone fxxking mental"

    There was nothing wrong of course it was the tiles and app list plus Bing that threw him.
    After giving him a tour of the phone he was amazed.

    Alright, WP7, and WP8 both may lack certain features, the idea of a closed OS is to polish the few main features instead of spreading so thin. I like to think I have a decent technological know-how, but I only know of a few things that android has that WP doesn't, but why should it? WP is A DIRECT COMPETITOR TO IPHONE. iPhone doesn't have any features, in fact, WP many more features than it does, but because WP has *Windows* in it's name, everyone thinks it should function like windows 7. I don't see everyone moaning about iPhones sucking, so WP shouldn't be either. Android, and Symbian are NOT meant for the same audience as WP. I don't see myself importing contacts from .csv files anytime soon. Therefore, instead of giving a feature no one gives a damn about except a few tech elitists, Microsoft has decided to polish the features MOST people care about. WP and IOS can be compared, but you can't compare WP and androi. It's like comparing an F150 to a Tesla Roadster.

    I'm sorry for the rant, all of my siblings are fandroids and I get this talk everyday about my phone sucks because it can't do some vague task, and I've just had enough.

    I agreed with you, Android is a better mature mobile OS. I migrated to WP8 after the purchase of my Nokia Lumia 1520 and I love it. The only thing I miss from Android is the ability to upload docs files from the browser. I hope Microsoft add that feature in a future OS upgrade.

    you can't delete data sense like you can't delete settings or internet explorer, it's a part of the system (not on every wp)

    thanx, I thought I was clear from the begging, but some people just take things out of context, and start sharing their knowledge.

    There's two reasons for that, Windows Mobile which really was trying to be a PC in your pocket and the fact that people refer to WP8 as Windows 8 Phone.

    And before phones were powered by Windows Mobile, they were powered by Windows CE, and before Windows CE powered phones, it powered - you guessed it - PocketPC devices!

    Thanks, XXNUZ. I used WP7 from the time it was available on Verizon up to the day WP8 launched on Verizon. If WP8 hadn't come out, and I hadn't been such a geek that I had to have 8, I'd still be using 7.

    Stuff Magazine has recently reviewed the Nokia Lumia 1520, there's a part in the review where they say there's no official YouTube app which is unforgivable!
    Nokia Lumia 1520 is my next phone and I have already had friends say its stupid there's NO Youtube Id never buy a phone that hasn't got that....
    Do these Magazine reviewers actually use the phone for more than a minute?

    Well, there really isn't an official app and official apps tend to trump 3rd parties on most cases (or preferences)... I'm happy with Metrotube, mind you.

    "That's a Nokia, right? Well, you're screwed, they're dropping support since Nokia no longer exists... It was bought by Microsoft!"

    I had to contain myself not to roll my eyes to the back of my head because it was a person I have met just yesterday. But it's great to know my work colleagues are so well informed... Even if it's not a tech related line of work.

    About a year ago I had problem with my L710. Went to fix it to local phone store, few dudes (from Egypt) fixing there phones. When they saw I got Nokia all of them were saying I should get something from android or iPhone because Nokia is not popular now as it used to be few years ago and nobody is buying them anymore (I think in the USA it never was popular). But I always loved Nokia and said I really don't care if its popular or not I just love it and want you to fix it (I ended up buying new L710 from them,they messed up with my first one).
