    I blame the carriers for the update process . At least the global variants have a better shot at getting updates .

    Everything is still subjected to consumers buying the product. It doesn't matter from whom, if MSFT puts out something compelling OS wise and their OEM partners matches it with good hardware, people will buy it. If it is in demand enough, the carrier versions will sell and it means the carriers will allow for updates.

    No guarantees there either when you're dealing with an OEM directly. Just your odds are a bit better to get a bit better mileage from your device that way.

    Indeed. That's why the best defense for a consumer is to be as educated as possible. Apple gets to charge crazy money because their terms are stuff people have been sold to accept: tight rein on an experience that seemingly works well for those who buy into it. MSFT was onto what Apple knows...people want stuff to simply work, and if you offer a good version of a means to that end, people will buy. MSFT hasn't figured out how to execute with that yet.

    Yup, and nobody gave a **** when we were looking to do that over the 810 and by extension the t-mo 8X.

    huh so theoretically using a white background on the LCD panel on wp uses less power than if it was on a black background

    I think it was that people expected wp to be like android but that didn't happen. so the minority complained to msft and msft caved. msft changed from " the just works mentality " to the add lots of features and fix them later

    Seems to me they've tried to do both and have failed at both. Not sure what they do next. I like the last round of Lumia devices and want to get one because they're the last Nokia branded devices. Problem now is that they honestly are flawed devices, just as the first WP8 models were. Much of their limitations stem from MSFT's handling of how the software supported better hardware.

    How much better would a 1520 be with a s805 processor and the OS with devs focusing on apps maximizing that screen space? How much better would the 930 be running a s801 chip even with a 2600mah battery? How much better would the 1020 be if it was a quad core s800 with 2 cores running the camera solely? How much better would the 920/925 be with s600 chips? Hardware isn't everything but man, WP just got shafted with the hardware, trying to make greatness out of flawed out tech be a use of untimely OS limitations. Now the hardware is catching up, the question is how will want to use it?
