    it does if u cant use apps or bugfixes etc
    good luck living in the past
    I have never in the almost 4 years of using Android have ever ran into someone using an Android devices complaining about updates. As long as the apps and functions a consumer uses works, they will continue to use the phone bugs or not.

    I highly doubt I am the one living in the past out of the two us. The majority of your notions about Android (even though you claim to be an Android user) is very dated.

    Misconceptions? I don't think I'm the one trying to still believe in preconceived notions that don't apply or never applied to Android.

    I wouldn't dare get an icon considering all the Wi-Fi problems it is having. I was considering getting an Ativ Odyssey to play with. WP is not there yet for me to use as a daily driver.

    I'm actually on your side believing that a free system with compatible networks is much better. In Switzerland you can get a price reduction on your contract when not buying a phone. And this reduction is always higher than what they offer as a price reduction on a new phone. This is mostly because the providers have much higher base prices. To give you a discount that looks like a lot of money, they sell phones contract free for a price that is much higher than a phone would cost in an independent shop. The compatible networks makes it also very easy to switch providers.

    That's however not the reason I'm posting here. I write because every time I read one of your "lol"s or of your "u"s it gives me a chill. And it doesn't help your credibility if you don't even take the time to write you instead of u.

    And you really should look up this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_stop
    Epic wiki link! :D

    Android users never get updated in a timely fashion, kit kat is only on 8% of all devices as of May of this year. Not good. Thank god for the developer preview program here or all the complaining around here about updates would be just as bad.

    My Quick Answer: Yes(and keep my Lumia 720 too)
    Description: (I think) Arena and Era of Communication is changing and Smart Phones are going to be like Clothes and we will choose and use them-our smart phones- for different situation and usage, and main deference among our smart phones will be their OS(s).
    Quick answer: NO
    System is closed
    Devices tend to be overpriced for what they offer
    Devices are never really yours as Apple retains rights on them
    Each time i have used an iPhone i got irritated after 2 minutes net.
    My whole platform is on Microsoft and Google

    The only iThings i'd buy are either an All in one or a MacPro then install Windows on them. The reason is i find displays incredibly beautiful and keyboards incredibly comfortable (together with Lenovo devices, or some of them).
    It's worth mentioning that in Taiwan for much less you get an MSI gaming All in one or else with full touch screen etc. etc. iPhone has never been in my preference list.

    I'd rather use Android and rant on WP 8.1 while Microsoft tries to put it on par with the rest than buy an iPhone. No hate. Just the whole ecosystem, marketing and business model don't suit me.

    I admit each time i touch a MacPro i want one...they are gorgeous.

    That's the point! No one cares about updates, the fact that KitKat is over 8% of Android smart phones is a good thing. Imagine trying to update literally 10s of millions of devices.

    Also I wouldn't brag about the Developer preview, you are literally beta testing. I saw all the threads of how people had problems with it and their battery life suffered. Yeah, thanks but no thanks.

    While you may not like their mobile devices millions do. And they are not overpriced. Overpriced to you. But economically and by comparing high end smartphones from other platforms they are priced the same.

    It's not like every android release is perfect, go on xda-developers and check out what the new version broke. For example 4.2 broke bluetooth audio, it took at least 6 months or more to fix it, and the release was supposed to be final. Newly released android is released to lets say 5 devices (Nexus 4, 5, 7, 7v2, 10) and it still has some bugs, WP developer preview first of all is meant for DEVELOPERS so they can test the new APIs on actual hardware, but still, it's released to ALL WP devices and has plenty of bugs, if you do the devices to bugs ratio here, it's about the same. Only enthusiasts really install developer preview, and in stability it's still better then all those 3rd party ROMs that people install on android phones (that almost always break at least one feature like LTE, GPS, camera, HDMI output, BT or something like that).

    WP could simply not release as preview and then the official release would be the quality of iOS releases (which I hear are also quite buggy when released, and I've heard they make previous generation iPhones much slower).

    No device/OS/system in general is perfect, people usually weigh pros and cons and go for the one with most pros or least cons, or some just follow the crowd.

    And to answer the thread question: no, I will not. If I got it for free, I'd probably sell it.

    I never said very Android release is perfect. But 4.4.2. is damn near it. I was referring to the other poster bragging about getting the DP when it was not that good from the beginning.

    Weird, 8.1 on my 1020 still has less issues/crashes than stock 4.4.2 on my brand new Nexus 7 2013. I enjoy the Nexus, don't get me wrong...
