I don't think 7.8 is all that great of an update. A lot of people were hoping that 7.8 would bring all the features and functionality that are severely lacking in Windows Phone 7, but the update is little more than an updated start screen UI and bluetooth file transfer support. I was really excited for 7.8 until it started being released and I realized it didn't address 95% of the issues I had with my Lumia 900. Microsoft once said that Windows Phone 7 was what Windows Mobile should have been, and then they said that Windows Phone 8 is what Windows Phone 7 should have been. It's just been a terrible journey and a constant letdown for many WP7.x users and I'll never buy another Windows Phone...I won't even consider it. I find it to be a sad little OS lacking a lot of basic functionality. I feel similarly about Windows Phone 8. I could list all my complaints, but thousands of others already have. http://windowsphone....ure-suggestions
That's where everyone's WP7.x hopes and dreams went to die. Microsoft didn't listen to them.
I really wanted to love Windows Phone. I really did.
