It doesn't really matter if you have had a flawless experience with iPhone, or a better experience with iPhone than other people, I know for a fact that I have had issues with them, and I know plenty other people who have (and Mac's in general, I spent four years working in the film industry so I have plenty of experience with Apple).
The phones themselves are in my opinion not the best phones on the market, hence the reason I swapped, after being loyal for many years. Part of it is due to iFatigue, yes, but the iPhone does have it's flaws. The former head of their software department was recently sacked, you know.
Their ecosystem however, and overall experience, is industry leading. However chinks HAVE started to appear recently (Apple maps for example), and I expect the gap WILL close as time goes on.
There simply is no "Gold Rush" at the moment when it comes to the iPhone. As someone who has interest invested in mobile development, making money off Apple's ecosystem right now is trying to be like a rock star. IF you're in the right place or the right time, you'll make it big, but 99% of people who try get nowhere.
You make money and create opportunity by being part of something that is a pioneering endeavour. Apple *was* that, but now I firmly believe it is not.

However, the following were:
Camera purple tint issue (iphone 5)
Scuffed back issue (iphone 5)
I was just mentioning that, while you may have experienced you and your friends with some of the other issues you pointed out, they weren't really nationwide.
With Windows phone...so far I haven't really had any glaring issues with my L810. However, with my HTC 8x there were a few:
Bad battery life
I also had this weird crackly bluetooth issue but nobody else really seemed to have that -> meaning that this isn't as big of an issue as the other three.

As a business user I pay a lot of attention to hardware and my choice of phone was based mainly on that. Before the Lumia I had an iPhone as well.
In my opinion the Lumia 920 is the best phone (hardware wise) currently on the market and as far as I am concerned it just happens to be running WP8 (which was a pleasant surprise mind you).
As most of the apps I use are present on all platforms (bar one or two) my next phone will be the one that I think has the best hardware to meet my needs.
I like the IOS simplicity and the fact it is a complete OS (WP8 has a bit to go yet) and being a geek at heart enjoy Android and the ability it gives me to do pretty much anything I want to do with my phone.
But I can tell you this: I thoroughly enjoy having my Lumia on my desk next to me and can't imagine having either an IP5 or an S3 there. Despite the WP8 problems Nokia has done a stellar job hardware wise and it is now up to MS to pick the baton up and match the hardware quality Nokia provides with the OS that it deserves.
When that happens it is my humble opinion that the Nokia/MS combination will be a force to be reckoned with in the smartphone arena.

Having contributed to this thread 18 month ago (moved from ip4 and was looking for a podcast app in the windows store), I have to say that I never looked back. The L920 fulfilled all my expectations and much more.Now that I am due for an upgrade, won't pick anything else than a Windows Phone. The doubt is which one. Picking the L930 now or wait for the 1020 successor early next year. Meanwhile, found the right podcast app in the Windows phone sometime ago, the Podcast Lounge. So good that I forgot all about iTunes.Cheers
