    This is as straight and simple as it can get. Miss not having a Windows Phone. My best friend met me the other day and was carrying Click image for larger version.

    Not only that. He had a second phone Samsung Omnia W. Later he reminded me it was me who had urged him to buy this for his dad. His dad totally loved it ..
    Now the A$shole has two WP devices and I have Zero...

    Feeling bad for myself... I have to use wife's old Atrix and believe me...it sucks.

    Sadly no WP low end devices in the market to cater to somelne like me.

    :(

    You can always buy a Lumia 620 or Lumia 720. Even an HTC 8S will suffice.
    And if your carrier support contracts, you can always buy high-end WP on-contract.

    Nevertheless, you always have an chance to buy a WP.
    Or if neither of those phones can actually suit you, you might need to wait though, since the list of WP8 is not that much.

    Thanks...but here in India, there are no contracts.
    Secondly, even HTC 8S is expensive- 331$

    Wow, that's ridiculously expensive! What about the Lumia 620? If you can't even afford the 620, I suppose the Lumia 520 is your only choice now.

    620 - 275.94$
    520 - 195$
    That's still tad bit expensive and over budget for me.

    I can't shell out more than 130 $ Max... :(

    Lumia 520 is really very cheap at Rs 10499 and this is the official price.Usually prices are lower than the official one and you may be able to get it around Rs. 10000 ..I am considering to buy it as soon as they start selling it.

    Then you have no more choices.. If you don't mind of having WP7.8, the Lumia 610 and 510 should be cheaper.

    Sorry you are not using your WP device anymore. I have a Lumia 620 and it's great! Absolutely great. So if you can save up enough money to get one, I am sure you'll be satisfied.

    What tempted you to get Nexus 4 in the first place?

    Anyways, yeah I think either the 620 or 520 would make an AMAZING media player. I'm sure there will be discounts here and there, just wait! :)

    The really low price and the amazing specs it comes with. All WP8 phones are expensive. And yes, i am saving up for 520. Though I don't like the back, but still..looks amazing. Wondering how is 720. And how much will it be..
