    Hi,

    I am a new windows phone 8 user. I have a yaffle of android devices as well as a couple of apple. both of which has run it course. apple is long left in the dust at this point in my eyes. boring hardware more boring software. Android has some cool handsets, but I have come to the conclusion that between android themselves and the carriers, updates in os, phone etc are well non existant. I have the galaxy note, they promised the multi window etc and superfast experience with jellybean update, but it's been horrible, no multi window and slow and laggy.

    well that led me to the Ativ S. I LOVE IT. phone is fast, and looks great. and the windows phone 8 os is great

    It was either this or the Nokia 520. Just never had the horsepower this has.
