Enjoy a new mobile experience

Windows Phone 8 has a flexible layout and support for the latest mobile technology. All Windows Phone 7 apps run on Windows Phone 8 handsets, and the new features mean enhanced games, even crisper audio and improved video playback. Windows Phone 8 uses Internet Explorer 10 to allow even faster web browsing, complete with phishing filter and SmartScreen - a service that makes it harder for malicious sites to trick you into giving away personal information.

Better hardware

The new Windows Phone introduces support for dual-core mobile phone processors, as well as an HD-quality screen. You can also hot-swap microSD cards to install apps and media, or save larger files onto. There's support for multitasking so, for example, you can leave turn-by-turn navigation running while you adjust your music. Microsoft's Wallet Hub is another addition. It's a mobile payment app that enables you to use digital coupons, loyalty cards and pay for goods all from a central location.

The new Start screen

Windows Phone 8 uses Live Tiles to give you up-to-date information at a glance. You can also resize the tiles and decide how to arrange them on your Start screen. There's a new small tile size and you can fit four of those in the old Windows Phone 7 tile size. The Start screen gives you even more live information because you can fit in so many more Live Tiles. You can prioritise the most important ones by giving them more space and give others just enough room to show their icon.

Your phone as you want

The layout is completely flexible - press and hold a tile to unpin it and drag it to a new position. Press the arrow that appears on the bottom of the tile to cycle through the small, medium and large sizes. You can still have two of the medium tiles side-by-side in Windows 7, but you can have much smallertiles if you want to, resulting in a far more flexible layout. We reckon you'll want a mix of small and medium tiles, with a couple of the 'double-wide' large tiles for apps that show a lot of information.
