    Why would I get a phone with worse specs than a phone with better specs and the same OS? I prefer to have high end and excellent performing phones.
    wasn't pointing at you i have a feeling you are part of the crowed of more is better ;) but i was saying in general how a cellphone needs more horse power to run its self when i computer with a single core 2gb of ram run windows 8.1 ?

    how can it make it better if it runs nice on a single core o.o...i played with my fathers htc arrive on 7.8 and i could live with it ....its just the mentality of saying more is better when in reality its not cracked up to be
    Because WP7 didn't really need all that power, it didn't have a lot on it, which is why it only needed single core.

    I'm willing to spend a few bucks more for a phone that I'll use every day and have for a year or more.
    but then it would be switched for something better ;P

    There is a difference between "running" something and running something with efficiency and performance.

    I'm tired of arguing. You win. Having meh hardware is better than having excellent hardware. No one needs new technology. Why pay a little more with a phone with future-proof hardware than get a phone that runs fine now, but ran excellent in the past?

    We aren't as spec hungry as Android users, but as much as you guys want to say, the higher the specs (that make sense), the better. 2GB of RAM is better than 1GB. 1080p is better than 720p or 480p. A 20MP camera (that is actually an improvement, not just higher MPs) is better than an 8MP camera. Quad core is better than dual core. A bigger battery is better than a smaller battery. Having an IR blaster is better than not having one. I can keep going...

    I like to be up to date with technology, although I'm still rocking my 920, even though it came out more than a year ago!

    Well I always keep up to date with technology, IF I CAN. That being said, I spent my money towards the end of 2013, with the Surface Pro 2 and Xbox One. I couldn't buy another WP. If I could, I would. And since I've waited, I can wait a little longer for another Nokia flagship device to be announced globally and on AT&T, with high end specs like the new S800/801 chip, with a 5 inch screen. I'm glad that I still feel my 920 is new, and keeps getting better with updates, as it will help me wait a few more months without being all anxious that the phone I have is "outdated". I'm just like that, lol.

    Maybe not an Icon exactly, but I am 91.3% sure that there will be a 1520 clone in a 5 inch form factor.

    Actually, I've gone back to my old ways of separating the carrier from the OEM in terms of handling updates, and I couldn't he happier. I live in a dense metro area with good coverage. So from a price perspective, I'm on t-mobile. I don't like how they handled updates for Windows historically, so I have unlocked phones. Unless I'm going to Verizon, no way i buy another carrier branded phone. Plus I'm not settling for using other carriers phones just to get most of the features of the phone and have the carrier of origin cripple the key stuff. My 8X VZW model and my 810 were the last time I dealt with carrier phones on t-mo. No thanks
