I dont know. I'm happy I get an update on a two year old phone (even if it isn't substantiative). Now if I had bought the phone in the past six months I probably wouldn't feel the same way.


This is called battered Android user syndrome. For them, any update is better than the status quo, even if it is totally useless.

The fun thing is - the average point release for an Android launcher brings more new features than this useless 7.8 thing.

Microsoft want to emulate Apple's controlled environment instead of the Android wild west but forgot that means they do actually have to stand by their products. People will accept less flexibility but they need to get something in return.
