Judging by your comments you need phones to spend time with, to fill your day, and androids are best to make you their servant. But there are people like me who prefer the phones to serve me, not me to serve them. That's why they're coming up with, let's say LUMIA 920. My days are busy and Nokia knows it. My holidays need some fun and Nokia knows it too.
Get a life dude.

But with a custom ROM your reboot time under a speed kernel should be less than 15 seconds. Most likely
10 seconds. So a reboot when needed isn't really
taking up that much time.

Less than 5 minutes of reboots total time a month is almost like 99.5% stable anyway really if the phone is on 100% during 30 days at 24hrs.

within 0.4% of windows Phone "up" time means rounded within 1% is about as stable as windows phone if you
look at it like that.

Android stable , yes 1% of windows phone.
Android lag. 99.9% no with correct skills and 4.2.+

Windows Phone stable, 1% to android
Windows Phone lag. Yes, but cleverly hidden in tiles


Note 2 and HOX+ are best.

So when used correctly Android doesn't really lag now.

No thanks. I have tried at least 20 custom roms on Android. Kind of tired of random bugs. Yea, Android 5, 6 , 7, 8 should fix lag and bugs.....

Well Android 5 should have improved automatic Dalvik Cache cleaning and fix that.
And all WP fans can say is Android lags.
So it's a non issue now.
They are the ones worried

HTC OneX + 1.7GHz with overclocked Terga 3 to 2GHz
and Android 5 will be so smooth on a Custom ROM.
Then Windows and Apple fans can see the power of what no lag is like.

then they have no right at all to say android has lag.
Or if the are using a phone with less than 1GB RAM.

Well Android 5 should fix that anyway.
But it's not really a problem anyway.
You do factory reset for dalvik cache and reformat
when you update your custom ROM or Kernel.

Remember that Nokia's signal reception, call quality, build quality, pureview camera, puremotion hd+ display, rich audio recording, clearblack polarizer for best outdoor visibility, and a screen that can be used with anything, not just your fingers > Apple, Samsung, HTC, LG and the rest.

I had to mod it with a ROM as the sense skin is very laggy.That's HTC's fault not google, as I seen Touch wiz as well ,but it's not as bad.

Plus with a custom Rom i can get 4.2 when it's releases and have the true lag fix as we all wait for Android 5.0 to be the crushing blow to the laggy windows phones for good.

You don't know the different in speed after a factory reset? I guess you haven't tired. Like new again
for a week or two.Then i do it again and it's awesome.
Keeps that speed up and more responsive it feels.

With my terga 3 overclocked to 1,700Mhz and boot kernal mod my Custom ROM boot up can blow the doors off any Windows phone 7 bootup.

Android is king and will smoke the windows now
