Android and Google has to innovate and STOP their unoptimized OS.

When you need quad/octa core to be lag free or custom ROMS... something is wrong with the OS.

If their OS continues to LAG in 5.0, WP8 will overtake them soon.

As WP8 only weakness is lack of recent apps, once Apps catches up, there is no reason for android.

Microsoft only need to add more features to Windows Phone. They have the OS running lag-free on any device and is extremely stable with Windows NT Kernel. Apps don't crash the whole OS like on Android. Microsoft removed all that java crap in their mobile OS because they know java is terrible. Also Nokia makes the best hardware that people care about, like build quality, call quality, signal reception, ability to see in direct sunlight, camera, etc.. and who doesn't like free worldwide offline voice navigation without data plan.

Plenty of Lumias here in UK ,I would say mainly females with yellow ones and its the colours that make them stand out..Judging by the size it seems most have the 920 ..I have only had W7.5 Lumia710 but enjoyed it back then..Once more quality apps and different mp3 players arrive I may give it another try but seriously tempted by 1020.

If your answer is yes to those questions, then I do believe my previous statement still stands that I don't see the difference in fans or fanboys. Cause it seems in all arguments, that's all that's said by either side.
