    I have an Android 4.2.2 tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 since a year ago) and I use more my L920. I had an iphone 5 for 15 days and no, it is not for me.

    Is this normal? because I'm seeing a lot of "I hate Windows Phone" threads and maybe I'm wrong.

    Oh come on, stop with that, I'm the same. I can't stand the one and only fathers Android device in the house, and I'm hardly even using my old iPod touch 4g when I got the NL920..
    So yes, we're kinda the same ;)

    I have a iPhone 5 sitting here next to my MacBook Pro Retina, iPad Mini, and it is turned off. My white Lumia 920 is not. It is a piece of art.

    I had a Yellow 920, went back to Android because of the apps and regretted it. Just traded my GS3 for a red 920 and couldn't be happier. Missed my Lumia badly. So yes, this is normal.

    Not that unusual... I still enjoy iOS and came from an iPhone 4, but I very much prefer WP8. I went from a Lumia 810 to 920 and love the platform. I did recently get an iPod touch for stuff I had on my iPhone that I can't use on WP, but it's all good.

    Never tried Android, but then again, I've never had any desire to. Eww...

    You're definitely not alone. I prefer WP8 and my 920 to an iPhone or Android phone.

    I was a heavy iPhone user, with 3G, and then iPhone4, for a total duration of some 4 years. Now, I won't even look at the new phone, and the new iOS (it is a big dissapointment for me), and I am also a radical Android hater from the bottom of my soul. So tecnically speaking, WP is the only OS for me, others do not exist.

    I keep a toe in the iOS ecosystem with my iPad 2, but in truth, since I got my Surface RT the iPad looks more and more like a white elephant. Not only does the static interface not hold my attention, but switching between tasks - a four fingered swipe - is a pain compared to the simple swipe from the left on the RT.

    So no, I don't think you're insane. I just think the grass is greener over here, that the day to day experience of using a Windows Phone is a happy one.

    I was a hardcore iOS user (Owned an iPod Touch 4th gen, my first device with a touchscreen three years ago, got a 5th gen iPod Touch this year.)

    Then i got my Nokia Lumia 520, i would not get an iPhone, nor an Android device, but i would get a Blackberry Z10. (Yeah i know.)

    Perfectly normal... for 3.7% of smartphone users! But yes, in this forum, it is perfectly normal for the majority. Go to AC or iMore, replace L920 with SGS4 or iPhone 5, and "perfectly normal" will be equally as true.

    Sadly for me, this was my conclusion. I had to leave my 920 for the time being. Hopefully I can return soon!
