      Todolist seems a bit too expensive for me, and I’d rather use google keep, though I am sure that todo has more features.

      • JosephHindy

        Way more features, yeah. Google Keep is really for people who don’t need “all that stuff” and just need something simple. :)

        • lag is real on lagdroid

          Simple? Yeah, youre right! Android phones need at least octa core to run SIMPLE game like fruit ninja. !

          • Jayfeather787

            What the hell are you talking about? The Snapdragon S2 can handle riptide GP2 just fine with the Adreno 205.

      • lag is real on lagdroid

        Nope! Google is evil! The real question is that they settle lag on android yet?

      • Guest

        True Octa Core from Samsung can actually get rid of lag on their toy?

      • Guest

        Too funny to see SamSheeps are trying to defend Samsuck no matter bad it is.

      • Guest

        WP sucks to the core(pun intended).
        Android is awesome.

        • Guest

          Hey stupid azz! Samsung fans were dreaming that their beloved
          cheap plastic maker would release a premium design. But at the end, they still created cheap plastic the same like every year and patented it as
          “Leather”. lolz. poor samsung fans.

          • Guest

            Wait….. what is lagroid???
            Is it a name patented by Microsoft for their future mascot or something???

            • Jayfeather787

              Yeah. Its the new thing in Microsoft land, where all the phones are crap!

            • Eske Rahn

              One Google paid troll detected! U can’t ignore the fact that ur laggy android is harmful with malware and virus. LOL

    • WestFiasco

      Totally unrelated but, I saw the site’s new look on a mobile device and i liked it. I’m just now seeing the desktop version and it’s a mess, what happened ? I have to say the previous look of the desktop version is much much better than this. Are you trying to force me to browse the mobile version only ?

      • lag is real on lagdroid

        Don’t waste ur hard earn money on Lagdroid anymore. Go for Lumia with WP is much better.

        • Guest

          Why? So that he can have a L^2 phone (Laggy Lumia)

    • lag is real on lagdroid

      90% of Android apps are malware and virus. hahaha

      • Jayfeather787

        Bullshit.

        • Eske Rahn

          Yep, Android is full of sh%t! :)

    • Tuấn Ankh

      Yep, the WP hardcore fanboys from Phonearena are invading Android’s space…
      Or maybe it’s our honor to have Microsoft employees visiting us. xD

      • Guest

        suckkkk having android phone right? poor stupid fan. but
        don’t worry, in 2020, samsung will release a mega 1024 core for fighting lag.
        will it be a successful mission??? LOL

        • Jayfeather787

          Shut the hell up dumbass. You don’t know shit. You don’t know until you have used a Nexus 5. The video is fake, he probably installed a virus on purpose and underclocked to the lowest frequency.

          • Eske Rahn

            Well, stop talking sh%t anymore. See my well-prepared simple 3 steps to reduce lag on Android :
            1. use nova launcher for light cpu usage

            2. reboot ur lagdroid in every 10 minutes

            3. last but the only choice :( factory reset if necessary

            Hope u guys practice it very well :)

            • AssToast

              lol this guy here, going hard in the paint right up in here

            • Eske Rahn

              Not a joke anymore when ur android phone lags badly. Understand my 3 steps yet? :)

            • AssToast

              Nah please elaborate

            • Eske Rahn

              Ouch! I forgot that Android fans brain hardly understands anything opposed to their perspectives. Yeah, just lag like their toys :)

            • AssToast

              Help me fix it :(

            • Eske Rahn

              Try to follow my tips above, mate! And if you can’t stand it, switching to WP is also welcome :)

            • AssToast

              Nah WP is bullshit, i like how you sit in front of your computer for the past couple of hours spamming AA though

            • Guest

              he doesn’t work and lives in his mom’s basement, what else is he to do. . .

            • Eske Rahn

              Calm down, dude! the way u talk is sh%t like ur m0m

            • Guest

              my 80 year old mom would kick your punk as in two seconds.

            • Eske Rahn

              What an ignorance dumbass. why don’t u open ur mind to accept other’s idea? Is this the way Google teaches u? :)

            • Guest

              hypocrite much?

              I’ve been using windows since ’95, son. How about you open your pea of a brain and understand why Android has over 80% market share?

      • Guest

        Is Android really laggy? Video proof says yes :

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6oWDLk31EQ

        • arcwindz

          Wow, the troll is strong in this one.

          • AssToast

            Nah the troll is even stronger in the Eske Rahn guy

            • Eske Rahn

              Jealous of smoothness of WP? It’s not too late, switch back :)

            • Eske Rahn

              Yup, and he is even so low a creep that he is using a false name…

              (No wonder he won’t show his real identity though)

              If you click on the picture you will see that his real alias is
              lagisrealonlagdroid

            • Eske Rahn

              Wow, a samsung paid bot even follow me here? funny :)

            • Eske Rahn

              Hahaha! Besides being a Mods, u got an extra job. My bodyguard. :)

            • Eske Rahn

              “Babysitter” is the word.

            • Eske Rahn

              If need, come to my home and clean my toilet. I’ll give u 1$ a day! Interested? :)

            • http://www.AndroidAuthority.com/ Darcy Alexander LaCouvee

              We’re on it Eske, I’ll see that he goes to spammer hell. Thanks man!

            • Eske Rahn

              spammer hell? What a rude Mod. I really don’t know how you were hired

            • Eske Rahn

              Thanks ;)
              My name appears in quite some links/references to the spammer, Is it possible to clean-up that too?

            • Eske Rahn

              e.g.

            • Data

              Dude, let me guess, the bot cloned you and started to follow you around the internet? Same happened to me a few months ago Lol

              P.S. You comment regularly here?

            • Eske Rahn

              Yeah, and to the PS no
              It was our regular spammer ‘lagisrealonlagdroid’ that posted in here as me, changing names a couple of times. I pursued his spamming on GSMA, and then noticed that he also was ‘active’ in here.

            • Data

              Oh OK, is he active anywhere else?

            • Eske Rahn

              Yes he is – I forgot which ones.

        • AndroidBoss

          You don’t even know anything about Android so stfu. By the way, this is a very old video, compare the Android on devices like the Nexus 5 and then come back you stupid troll. And have fun with Windows 8, the most boring phone operating system out there.

          • Eske Rahn

            Very old? Yeah, you’re right! Android is way too OLD. Google released Android 4.4 last year, wait 2 years for ur toys to get updated. Well, good luck with that :)

            • Tuấn Ankh

              The oldest Android Jellybean still beats WP8 after Black Update in various aspects. No wonder WP8 needs to roll out updates all the time to keep up.

            • Eske Rahn

              Haha! MS supports us with the WP update. We enjoy every change in mobile ecosystem to catch up with the modern world. Unlike ur Lagdroid, 2 years later, ur toys will be abandoned like a dog without owner on the street. :)

            • Guest

              Yeah, cause MS upgraded everyone form WP7 to WP8. . . oh, wait. . . nope, they didn’t.

              Man, anyone that supports MS must have Alzheimer’s — the only thing they are good at is producing bugs.

            • Eske Rahn

              Bugs? hehehe. Say that to Android. Well, not only bugs,but also malware, virus, ads, trojan horse…. Keep enjoying it, Lagdroid fans :)

            • Guest

              yeah, MS doesn’t know anything about viruses, malware, etc. . . man, you show yourself as a total moron. At least be a little educated when trolling. Now you’re just looking like a 12 year old in mom’s basement.

              OH, that’s cause you are!

            • Shubham Singh

              no they dont and when the wp mobile ecosysytem expands they wont be able to do it different phones will have different haardware i.e. different ubderlying architecture.

        • Shubham Singh

          Android laggs sometimes so atleast it least its default apps have been made with common sense and those who are using WP they should be thankful that nokia made the mistake of not going with the android or else wp phones would have been just another device that no one noticed.

          • Eske Rahn

            Nah! Finally, Android fans admits it! Yeah, Android does LAG. Thanks 4 showing the world that Google has always been failed with its stupid OS. :)

            • Shubham Singh

              Dude i never got affected by the so called lags that you are talking about and every phone ages so dont tell me that the nokia 6600 or n97 performs the way it used to do when they were brand new.

        • Guest

          lmao. . . so your point is that ALL touch OS’s lag?
          And only android has true multitasking, and has improved more than any other OS since this video??????????

          What an idiot! obvious didn’t really watch the whole video.

          finally, 99% of finger movements are swipes, so who the hell cares if there is “lag” or not. . .

      • ghh

        ghhjcgh

      • Adrian Remus

        Yup, just like Android fans invade the internet with comments like “WP has no appz and gamez”.

        Offtopic: Cool profile image!

        • Tuấn Ankh

          I have a Windows phone. That statement is still quite true from a consumer stand point. One of the reasons I am not getting the Lumia 1520 or 1320 anytime soon. I’ll wait until the end of the year and see what WP will offer by then.

          And yeah. He’s Goku after all! He cannot be not cool xD

          • Adrian Remus

            I will go for the (unreleased) 1520V – 4.45″ display with Snapdragon 800. I’m not into big phones so this one is perfect for me.

    • Guest

      Guys… I am real sorry for posting those mean comments about how laggy android is in all the blogs. The truth is that I knew that for a good android experience I had to buy a flagship but I couldn’t afford it so I had to buy a stupid Lumia instead :(

      • Jayfeather787

        A good flagship phone without the flagship price is the Nexus 5.

        • Eske Rahn

          Android phones are for poor and stupid dumbazz like u. Nowsaday, everyone is open mined, they r not fooled by Google anymore. WP is the future :)

    • RanRu

      This comments section is a rolling train wreck.

      • JosephHindy

        Agreed. Holy crap!

      • Tuấn Ankh

        Attention. We are being hijacked. The hijacker seems to be an idiot in his final form. The moronic level scounter reads OVER 9000! None of your valid arguments will work against him.

    • districtjack

      I just checked and the moon is not full, so there must be something going on in the world that is bringing out the hatred for android. I came to android from WP and I’ll never go back. I will add that I’ve never owned apple, but I’ve seen a lot of disappointed frustrated friends that do.

      I still don’t understand what “lag” is. I think it means that windows hourglass I used to see while waiting for something to happen. For the most part, Android is instant.

      • Jayfeather787

        Android is awesome thanks for switching.

        • Eske Rahn

          Hahaha. He was pulling ur leg, stupid azz! No ones ever want to switch from WP to Lagdroid because they don’t want to be late at workplace. :)

          • Shubham Singh

            i did i had an lumia 720 used it for 1 month then replaced it with a nexus 4

            • Eske Rahn

              Nexus 4? I’d better use an Alcatel TG845. LOL

            • Guest

              you can’t afford either one.

      • Eske Rahn

        Switching from WP to Lagdroid is a bad joke. I can give u the meaning of “lag”. See my video above yet?

        • Guest123

          LMAO @lagisrealonlagdroid:disqus and “Guest”. . .

          Like there is anyone using WP to switch. . .

          You two are priceless!!!!!

          • Eske Rahn

            go to android store, u will see 90% of apps r malwares. lol

            • Guest

              You would know how? OH, cause you don’t! You don’t have a smartphone cause you can’t afford one — mommy won’t buy one for you, poor baby!

    • Shubham Singh

      Everyone who feels that the android lags buy an lumia and then what take pictures and get applause from people and there ends the capabilites of lumia or get an android and do everything any other device cant do with a occasional lag :)

          Lol I’m very busy at work and I use to love it but now I hate work. I’m tired of all the copying we do, and my manager is a bitch! I don’t get along with him anymore and in our office there is a LOT of back biting – people talk about eachother behind peoples back.

          Also, just so you know, I can only comment after 5PM GMT on weekdays, so don’t expect anything before that…

          How is your life going? Is working in Casino fun?

            Not working in Casino or games lol; I am tired of working with games.
