All I know is that the my 920 and 925 Lumia handsets are by far and away the best phone/ OS I have ever used.

Great Apps, examples like Nokia Beamer just take handset uses to another dimension.

just like my old galaxy y

in beginning it was good

not its just crap . can't install more than 10 apps . and i restart factory settings every month to faster its experience

but lumia 610 is a gem . its performing equal to my present 820

no matter more apps , both are running so fluid and am still having 618 as my secondary phone bcoz of its battery life

just not bcoz i luv WP8

i was andi fan in beginning but now wp8

But WP users need to wait till the game developers release a 512MB version? Just like how me and most of my friends already enjoying Angry Bird Go on our Android, while 1 of my friend can't as he is using the 520. That's so sad for him.

But on the other hand, others regrets getting the cheap low end lumia because they cannot even play the latest games as most of them require at least 1GB of ram! Now, who is having the last laugh?

Love it or hate it...
Year 2015 is the year of Windows Phones

+ WP9 comingup
+ merging of apps stores (windows + Windows phone)
+ Cube tile (that will laugh on the face of other static icon OS)
+ Sony coming up with Windows Phone
+ Nokia Communicator series for enterprise(just my assumption)
+ hmmm may be wireless charging on Lumia 520 range phones(well when apple plans to bring iris scanner, why not nokia do this???)
+ flexible, bendable display phones(already demoed by samsung)
+ HTC one + windows phone os(OR face the fate of blackberry)

Record for them(MS) not a global record. I just convinced a colleague to buy Note 3 as her first smartphone. 190 Euro for 2 years contract for 35 Euro per month at 300 minutes talk and 1GB data per month, isn't bad at all. Note 3 has everything, except Facetime;).
