SHP - Have to disagree on WP7.5 being awful, especially the browser. I had my Surface delivered yesterday and it is fantastic. Each to there own I suppose  - the touch cover was included in the price of the 32gb. It is a superb device! Well I love it anyway.

I do agree that the Windows Store is looking very bare at the moment.

One thing I do think is a fantastic feature of the OS is the integrated people hub. Having my Twitter and Facebook feeds built into the OS is great and using the separate Apps on my GS3 was a step backward. I have a Lumia 900 (white) and think its great. Smartglass is cool but until we get games that support it (Halo4 for example in a week etc) I can't comment. I also have an Xbox music pass and it is quite frankly bloody brilliant.

As an attempt at a new OS I think MS did very well. It is by no means perfect - I think one of the biggest issues Windows Phone faces is the Xbox Gaming situation. The new hardware, native code access and support for gaming engines will be a godsend for Windows Phone 8. Which does include screenshot function by the way.

I understand your gripes, but I remember using a Google G1 when it first came out and google have come a long way since those days. I like Android but much prefer the 'glance and go' approach of the homescreen on WP7.5 /8.

To be fair the sites I have used on mobile IE have all worked fine. So cant really diss it too much there.

I'm trying to think of examples of websites, SkySports.com was a good one which IE on WP7/7.5 couldn't cope with, The Sun's site (only worth visiting during football transfer windows mind you) was also terrible. Both of those either loaded a skin and bones site, loaded incorrectly or refused to load and told me they couldn't load on my device.

There were plenty more but they're the only two I can think of.

I think that describing it as god awful was probably a bit of an over exaggeration on your part, you seem quite happy with a lot of it

I think as a catch up they've done quite well. Obviously iphones tend to get a lot more quality apps as they have a much larger customer base. The truth is I have a couple of issues in the past but Im struggling to think of what they are. Things youve mentioned such as screen capturing Im really not bothered about but enough people are hence its included on WP8.

From an aesthetic point windows 7.5 really smashes the others. The look and function of livetiles is brilliant. One look at the wifes tile shows all her updates and notifications etc. Microsofts pricing models are still shit though! We do get plenty of sales with a few decent titles being 79p so its not all bad.

To bring it back sort of On Topic I initially got one to earn achievements on the go but after mostly not bothering with games for a while that isnt as important but I still am looking to get a W8 phone.

So Android gets the Smartglass app, but Smartglass isn't compatible with the Jellybean update. Brilliant.

Smartglass is cool - anyone tried it on Forza Horizon? Not sure where the Halo 'Smartglass' experience is that was shown off at E3 - it looked like some kind of Halo Waypoint style app on a tablet but nothing in the Windows store yet (not even an official Waypoint app).

My Surface RT is awesome. The empty windows store? Not so much...

Although it is rapidly filling up I might add...

I'm loving mine too. Seriously sexy hardware. Replaced my laptop for 90% of the time. I've lost countless hours to Jetpack Joyride. Surprisingly addictive game. Adera is pretty fun too.

I wish there were a few more games available with achievements, especially those already available on Win 8. Seems weird Cut The Rope is available on Win8 with GS but without on WinRT.

The WayPoint App has been on iOS and Android for quite a fair while now, I'm guessing they'll eventually just replace it with Smartglass functionality instead, and just use the Smartglass app

Smartglass for iOS finally launched in the wee hours of last night. Shame my copy of Forza is still MIA

Something you won't really need unless you plan on playing online or on using the multimedia features on the Xbox e.g. Sky Go, Netflix and Lovefilm.

EDIT: Gold members also get special offers on Xbox Live Arcade titles.

Absolutely! It's been on my list of shiny things to buy for a while as intrigued by the Kinect side.

Not sure about Live though as a bit dubious about the whole online side. Never had a go at multiplayer and not sure I want other people to see how rubbish I am at killing

You could join Empire gaming nights and listen to angry north England types get told off by their wives or shouting at sneaky Irish people or Scottish people just being generally cool and funny.

Yes. 400G. Or 500 if you spend an extra 160MP on the DLC.
