LOL@Droided. Trolling everyone in the comments.
It's so obvious I don't understand how people take you seriously. I guess you are pushing the right buttons. The troll is strong in this one :)

I am waiting for Android 9 for it to be more reliable and less lag or should I get Windows Phone 8 instead?

It is accurate and nokia drive the most cities compared to rivals. It can also work offline. So go ahead and buy a WP now.

The Lumia has great build quality and in terms of reliability has Android beaten hands down. Android is much more customizable and has a much bigger app market but is far less reliable, even if sticking to stock apps.

The only time Android really competes on reliability is on custom ROMs which is a real shame for the average user.

You need to find custom roms and complicate your life. Even Google acknowledged that Android is laggy. Project butter basically says that every version before JB was laggy. In other words, 95% of Android users are on laggy software.

of quadcore power. vs only dual or single WP.LOL
and Android 4.2 will be so smooth on a Custom ROM with Maadmax Hardcore kernel v8.

Then Windowsfans can see the power of what no lag is like.Just wait for Android 5.0 as well with better Dalvik cache resets making lag a lie.

NO You guys are ones scared not us.

Just my HOX+ has been delayed a bit from clove.

Then i'll film it blowing away a borrowed lumia 800.
Smoked by HOX+ burn!
