Why do fandroid always bash other Os's rather than citing some USEFULL Info. . All they say don't even make sense. They doesn't help at all. I want to hear nice info about this Os. If you don't like the Os, then let it be, just don't bash other Os's. Including thier Manufacturers. But still i want a FM radio reciever on a Wp8 or a Usb-mass storage on Wp7.8. . :)

Some people pull sentences out of their behind.

I only corrected your statement that it is not sold out "everywhere". Nokia is marketing heavily in the US currently, they are lowering the prices of the Lumia 920 only a daily basis; yet it still does not prove anything because the phone is still easily and readily available. Im not saying it's a horrible phone, it's a decent phone but it's not a winner. Windows Phone 8 sucks big time, rather than letting Facebook develop their own native app for WP8, Microsoft wants to control everything and has their own "FB" app in the marketplace, compared to the Android and iOS fb app, Microsoft's iteration sucks. Most large US banks don't have apps in marketplace. I have credit cards through CITI, Chase, and BoFA. Not all of my banks have mobile apps in Marketplace, but they all do in Android Play store.

There is no failure going with Microsoft's ecosystem.
Whenever you wanna make a Nokia + Android comment, take a look at how rosy everything is for the likes of HTC and Sony. HTC is struggling and Sony hasn't been able to penetrate any markets with Android, better design and quality compared to Samsung.

Are you so naive to think people buy phones because of Android? They see iPhones and GSIIIs in the hands of their friends and they go ahead and get those. Everyone's following what companys' marketing teams plan for them.

Stop your emotions from getting in the way of your judgement and please, enough with the "Android magic potion" dramas already.

I have bought 920 with high enthusiasm and returned next day as from incoming call it was not showing the name in my contacts, it wants all my contacts to change to like this +9661 2345678 and in the contact it was recorded as 01 2345678 (NOT REAL NUMBER), I can not do this for my 7200 contacts' numbers. Previously all symbian phone did it but they are outdated so I am switching back to HTC one X as this is the only phone in android which can identify calling numbers in reverse way. I dont like HTC becasue of poor battery but I have ordered Mugen for a 6000 MAh battery for solving this issue. I phone5 can not identify contact numbers same way, there is no perfect phone in market, so buy whichever suits you.
