android Gingerbread released at end 2010 and not cosider old os cause it has alot branch update the final update for gingerbread on june 2012 and most phone andrid work with Jelly Bean now - No matter how old the OS is, when even after 3 years quarter of the devices are stuck on the oldest version the OS, it doesnt spell anything awesome. Even today only top end phone are updated while the mid and low are left to eat dust, now key lime pie wil be introduced and again the same story will be repeated. HTC has already said that they are not going to update One S to next version, others will soon follow, even if they get update, many devices receive it after a year when that update is obsolute and newer version is already available. Everybody know Android suxs when it comes to updates, only blind fanboys disagree.
about virus you can downlad anti virus from play store like avg avast - the very reason that Android has antivirus shows you how unsecure the OS is, my point is there shouldnt be even a need if antivirus on a mobile device, iOS also doesn't have one. If you think that avg and avast are going to protect you, then you need to do more homework.
coz android have modren system - do you even know what Android uses to run its apps and itself? Android runs its apps on virtual machine called Dalvik which is a Java Virtual Machine, n java is famous for its security issues. So its not the WP that is running on old java tech, its your very own Android
windows phone not infect with virus cos it have poor system specifications like old java phone. - what has specifications got to with virus? 520s spec beat any android in that price range. The reason WP doesnt have malware n virus issue is cause, it applies sandboxing method for its apps, no app is allowed to any changes to system. On top apps submitted to WP store are personally checked by MS, not like Google where its automated which can also be compromised. On top WP doesnt allow side loading like Android. Security of WP is top notch Android is no where near it. Only thing that comes near is Samsung Knox
They very thing that WP comes with built in support for Office App and Skydrive intergration are enough to have plus point on Android
Clearly shows you haven't done your homework just a blind fanboy shouting android is awesome just because he gets some fart apps and childish launchers on his phone.
Here is something for you to read.
Good luck with your Android. I will happily sacrifice some features in my phone, than to sacrifice my private data and the security of my device. You want to be a victim of such things, go ahead.

As I mentioned no company not even Samsung, sony, lg, huawei, no one will provide you cross country warranty. So I don't understand why are you blaming only Nokia? Its the same everywhere, with every company. On the other hand if you had communicated with Nokia about your shifting, they might have provided you some assistance with a International Warranty. I am really sorry you landed with a defective piece. But there is nothing anyone can do. You can contact the Nokia care of Quatar and ask for guidance. Contact Stephen Elop, his email id is available for general public. This was the very reason why I didn't bough the Nexus 4 in first place.

but bro , you havent answered all of my problems as there are no answers to all of them. and MANY MANY problems are missing in my previous comment, (ofcourse it is hard to find all problems and post in one comment) I bet no one can solve all the problems i listed above , but then too i thank you for giving me your precious time.
1. here maps cant be downloaded via mobile network.. and i am unable to find a free wifi nearby :( it would be helpful if i could download it via PC. after facing so many issues with this phone i think , here map MUST MUST have some major problems :(
2. camera + flash not working and i am not getting time to visit service centre... have to take it to service centre so early , feels awkward.
3. i cant blame on my internet connection , as same internet connection is fast in c5 03 and OPTIMUS BLACK... :( and i think there are very few apps running on internet in the background.. btw optimus black has more apps than l720 running in background but still it has faster internet :(
4.ANYWAYS 2G CONNECTION IS USELESS ON THIS PHONE.really it works for other android and symbian phones but not for 720... and yesterday after posting my comment i faced new problem >>> my IE is not at all opening web pages.. :( it says "refresh or try again later" why ? just why ? i tried restarting connection , restarting phone , etc but it didnt worked.
friends just tell me one basic function , and i'll tell you my major problem with it.. this phone is now working like walkie-talkie with some music player , image viewver and crap video player...
and really many points were missing in my previous comment i'll write it with some updates...
