WP8 and iOS are maintenance free. I use all three OS but I like WP8 and iOS because Android is too buggy, doesn't matter what phone.

hmm, I'm surprised they still use WP 7.x
is it because of lower licensing price ?

I believe phone released on 2013 onward should use WP 8 as minimum.

Actually the price difference between Live with Walkman and L505 is less than 20 dollars. México is the only country that sells the L505 so you should compare the local price of both phones. 4gb isn't enough for a smartphone but a better screen, newer design and a smoother UI are in favor of L505. That doesn't mean I'm defending Nokia, their price strategies in Mexico aren't logical when you see the L505 costs a little more than the L610 which is clearly a better device...

Why? Because android is a lazy pc platform build on mobile.. It does not filter or control multi tasking.. Everything is running amok.. Tweaking everyday just to stop lag and battery drain.. Silly clock widget everywhere.. Even thou time is already shown on the top right and corner..

And ur here comparing 256 ram of wp?? Rofl.. Sure that kinda ram wp run smooth since they control and filter what is required to multi- task what not.. But on android its a distaster!!

In the first two years of Android, I would rather have picked becoming a woman and giving birth to triplets over trying to send a text message on an Android device!
