"The story of ordinary phone calls on both Lumias is not, I'm afraid, very good."
So basically, don't bother if you actually want to use it as a phone. OK, I'm sold!
To be fair, the OP did not say Android is the best in that post. He didn't even say it was good.
He said Android has more market traction and is going to come out on top for that reason.
So this is a 160g phone that doesn't work very well as a phone? And it needs to have more memory added by the user to increase the low memory? As an absolute minimum I would expect that a phone from Nokia would be a good phone to make and receive calls.
And it costs £400! Have I missed something?
Shame on Nokia.
Too little, too late
The future is Android - certainly on mobile.
Lumia phones are nice (I have one) - the HTCs running WP8 are nice. Their all nice.
Unfortunately, they have no market traction, and I haven't seen anything that indicates that they're likely to gain market traction.
That they still haven't announced anything to do with the promised "WP7.8" update shows their commitment to early adopters, and anyone contemplating making the switch will be looking at that.
All in all, not good.
"What is it about Microsoft that has people making excuses for them all the time" - Microsoft pay them to do so - it's called astroturfing, and this is no conspiracy, Microsoft have been caught red handed paying shills. Similarly, recently the queues for the surface turned out to be comprised of microsoft employees in an attempt to create fake excitement.
