Hey guys, thought I'd introduce myself.
I've originally used many phones in the past. Particularly Blackberry, Androids and iPhones. My trouble with Blackberry was the quality, the OS was obsolete (to me), and even Blackberry 10 didn't do anything to "wow" me. With androids, while the specs are nice, I've always found myself dealing with bugs, atrocious battery life, slow updates (I was a big fan of Samsung Galaxy androids), and the fact that the phones are getting way too large for my liking. With iOS, it's okay at best in my opinion. I do still have my iPhone 5, but it's nothing exciting from the previous iPhones. That's when I came across Windows Phone 8.
I used to have an LG Optimus 7 a while back, but quickly got rid of it because at the time Windows Phone 7 was just released and had a lot of bugs and some key features I wanted at the time were missing.
I decided yesterday to finally jump aboard and give Windows Phone 8 a try, and purchased the HTC 8X (I got a good deal on a 16 GB Blue one). I set up all my accounts without issues (Gmail, facebook, Hotmail, etc). And wow, I'm loving it already. While it's missing some key apps that I use frequently (Banking apps mainly, maybe a couple games I'll miss), WP8 is really solid. I love how smooth it is, the battery life is great, and I think I'm finally ready to see where it takes me, even though I am still adjusting to the OS coming from my iPhone 5 and the Blackberry Z10, which I know is completely normal.
I look forward to becoming a bigger part of this community!
