    I hope WP8 won’t be as boring and dull as WP7, which is too restricted.

    The back looks nice. Not a fan of the buttons though.

    WP7 restrictive? nainstall ko nga APPS na exclusive sa NOKIA(Nokia Drive 3.0), HTC and LG sa Samsung Focus ko, without any problems and installed a boat load of APPS and GAMES on it

      T-Mobile ? Lol. We only have Globe and Smart.

    • ceegii63 says:

      so bawal ba bumili ng Phone sa US at ipaunclock Lol.

    hirap naman ipronounce yung name X_X

  10. R2 says:

    it’s nice but it’s not as cool as Nokia-done Lumia Windows Phone, we’ll just wait what Nokia has for the WP8.

    Rounded corners? I smell another Apple lawsuit.

  12. Justin says:

    Excellent hardware specs… crappy OS. Slap an Android OS on there and I’m ready to buy.

    • ceegii63 says:

      and rename it the GALAXY S3…

      have you tried WP? dont bash it until youve tried it, i SOLD my Androids and went back to WP simply because it felt better for me so android might be for you but for those of us who have had WP its perfect

    • Dolf says:

      Mas better pa nga WP para sakin eh.. Android, laggy. Kailangan mo pa ng matataas na processors para maging fluid. WP, simplicity. Android, complex and chaotic.

    • John says:

      If you’d slam Android on this, you would be more ignorant as fuck than you are actually now. Ever heard of the Galaxy S III ? It has the same chassis with this. Moron.

    • thecorrescode says:

      Android laggy? Baka naman natry mo lang na Android yung mga less than 5K lang… Laggy nga yun, kasi yung specs from low-end lang talaga. Though you won’t experience the lag, not unless super dami nang apps nakainstall…

    • Dolf says:

      Nope, ang stupid ko naman kung sa less than 5k phones ako magcocompare. Btw, sa SGS2 ng cousin ko at sa HTC sensation ng friend ko naka-experience ako ng lag. Even my friend’s SGAce plus din pala.

    yabang naman nitong si justin

  14. Dolf says:

    I’m still into Nokia for Windows Phones.. Sorry Samsung. Nokia, for me, is still better.

  15. Bryan says:

    Hmm. i’ll keep an eye on this one and Nokia. They say that you dont need zune just to put your media in your phone. I like the design slim, metalic texture.
