maybe we do not want a customized system that lags, has a bunch of bugs and so on. i thought just as you, but after switching from my android smartphone to the lumia, i just feel a lot more relaxed cause everything just works as far as what ive installed til now. android is great, has more apps and so on, but wp8 integrating with windows 8 is better (in my oppinion) than android.
Anu, 25 Nov 2013I am currently using Nokia Lumia 625,I tried to sell this mobile after using for 3 days. Lumia... moreThats what Mr Elop an Nokia did not realise,you do not buy a Smartphone because of the Camera put on it,A Very Big mistake made by Nokia by choosing Windows,if they were using Android they would be so Popular again,Restrictions on Windows an lack of Applications plus the Stupid Tiles spoils Windows phones,Android offers Good Cameras,loads of Applications an a Easy Customize System,but Microsoft have got to offer this on Windows but will we ever get that from them
microsoft doesnt even have nokia brand anymore this will not happen.
especially since microsoft licensing exchange to others to use making that useless

Microsoft will eventually pass Apple in overall marketshare, but the platform will not be very profitable because most of their sales are in the mid to low end. Similar to Android.
WP can claim all they want about putting pressure in the enterprise market, we all know unless WP actually improve their app availability, they don't really stand a chance against Android and iOS . . . right now, there are no categorizations like "business people" in the phone market anymore, only consumers, who want a phone that they can use with their professional life as well as their personal life and entertainment and WP is kind of failing in the entertainment part . . . we all know, this "business" path was already treaded by Blackberry, and look at Blackberry now, walking away from all the "business phone" thing, and trying to sell their phone to "people who want to keep moving"
and we're all aware the difference with Blackberry who made it big playing the "business" game, was that, Blackberry played it during the time when phones were "dumb" feature phones that did not have user-friendly business organizing features(most having none at all)--my phone in 2006 did not even have any email feature an area which Blackberry at that time owned

WinP OS is still young and inexperienced compared to iOS and Androids so they still have a lot of rooms for improvements but have you ever thought of back tracking what Android could offer back in the day when iOS, Symbian and BlackBerry was still the most popular OS? Android was struggling before but look at where Google is now. Back in 2010 the Android OS didn't have a lot of features, buggy OS up until Android 4.0 despite having quad core CPUs (you guys should admit that) and while WinP OS has always been buttery smooth even with just a Dual Core CPU. I believe that Apple has only established itself as the high end brand for gadgets but it has only been fooling everyone. They do cost cutting. Apple will produce a product with an A6 or A7 architecture chipset and will optimize it the best way they can and taaadaaa!!! They already have the most expensive smartphone with a very outdated hardware specs. Apple can't even step up the game of producing a smartphone with above HD resolution but instead they keep the screen small and stick to a little lower resolution and they'll make sure the PPI is there. What a clever way to fool people. To me the most interesting devices and believable in so many ways are the "Nokia Lumia 1520" "LG G2" "Samsung Galaxy Note 3" and "Sony Xperia Z1" coz these are the real deal! "Apple iPhone 5s" is nothing but a very expensive piece of junk. A device from the past (due to the outdated software and hardware features) that was brought to the future.
Microsoft is building up enterprise WP8 apps. Office 365 Admin, Office Remote, My Server 2012 R2 apps just released recently.
Anonymous, 25 Nov 2013hahah, good joke.Yes, your comment is a big joke
I am currently using Nokia Lumia 625,I tried to sell this mobile after using for 3 days. Lumia mobiles lack hundreds of features, most of my friends have already sold their Lumia mobiles. It is boaring with many restrictions. At present I can say without a doubt that a china mobile with Android Jelly Bean is capable of beating Lumia.. Yah Lumia have best cameras but I want a better mobile not Camera.
