Scant differences between Lumia WP7.8 and WP8

One of the reasons why people are not buying WP7.5 Nokia Lumias and other WP7.5 phones is because they will not be getting a WP8 upgrade.

In this link: it seems there are very few differences between the two versions of WP.

Being a layman when it comes to tech stuff, the actual differences (even though they are few) might be significant.

However, as a person looking for a phone with a great OS and looking for functionality in a phone, I think all the boxes on my check list for a 'modern' phone (excuse the pun) are all ticked.

Are your boxes ticked?
