Not sure why there are so many WP8 haters. I've had an iphone 4S before and i loved it. Then i bought a sony xperia acro s because i thought android was cool. I really regret doing that. Android was just an awful experience. So much lag in the apps, etc. I tried my friend's lumia 920 and it was just amazing how smooth everything was. Android is big because of the apps it has in store, but that's pretty much it. iOS is great because its user-friendly and almost everything is smooth. Windows phone 8 lacks apps, but that's all really. I'm pretty neutral with the 3 OS, but honestly i would go for WP. :)
I have used my HTC desire S and I switched to lumia 820 couple of months ago.
to summerize, I should have bought an iphone 5 or HTC one.
I feel lack of support from nokia, they're trying to enter the market again but their effort is not enough.
I do not feel like buy any nokia again.
Screen is perfect
keyboard and dictionary is awesome (I have used swift key on android but I feel more comfortable and quick at 820)
Attractive user interface
No fm radio
No shortcuts for phone controls(Wi-fi, 3G on/off) I have to dive into menus every time.
No file manager
No led indicator
No fm radio support
Lots of limitations on software, for example I cannot continue my online chess game after I reply a call
Battery life is not OK
