Despite the release of Windows Phone 8, the previous 7.8 phones are still very capable devices. They are still available to buy, are affordable, and have sold several million units.

The 7.8 update was welcome when it finally arrived BUT the phone is stuck with the IE9 browser. Unlike iOS and Android phones, there isn't the option of Opera, Chrome or Dolphin, so we're stuck with a browser that doesn't fully support either HTML5 or CSS3. OK, yes there is the 'UC Browser' but that seems to be a clone of IE9 and is no better.

A suggestion to include IE10 on Windows Phone UserVoice was declined, so we clearly need a much bigger 'shout' to get this decision overruled. So if you have a 7.8 phone, get over to UserVoice and vote for IE10!
