Some people say that Windows Phone 8 is characterized performance and smoothness. But we should not ignore the fact that the few devices that operate on the basis of this operating system, are new and offer high performance.
WP8 OS supports display with high resolution, multi-core CPU, memory cards, NFC and wireless chargers QI. All software devices are running on Windows Phone 8, have dual-core processors Snapdragon S4. The most popular model to date - Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X. Although the display of Lumia 920 8X is a little more, but HTC product is much more subtle and elegant.
Both devices are equipped with camera with optical image stabilization. Due to the moving lens array and high-quality images are obtained even at slow shutter speeds. Also, optical stabilization gives clarity pictures not only in daylight, but in the semi-dark areas.
"Live Tiles" in WP8 - a tempting idea. First, they are quite comfortable grouped and take up the entire screen area. Second, they reflect not just what they want, but that will point the user in the settings. It may be unread messages, incoming messages, etc.
For those, who decided to download software, Windows Phone developers have provided an interesting user mode "children's corner". In other words, this mode is disabled, as it can be called a guest mode. There you can enjoy the basic smartphone features: view photos, receive calls and SMS. Most minor applications will be blocked .
Although the new software interface of Windows Phone 8 can be called minimalist, the structure of the OS is a bit confusing. Take only the control system: sort applications into folders do not succeed, because the folders are simply not available, there are no notification centers. Plus some of the inscriptions and the tiles on the screen will be cut off, especially in the app store. But the main drawback we have already mentioned - a small number of applications. For example, there is no such essential programs like Dropbox, Spotifu, Instagram, etc.
