    WP for life. many a times i get annoyed and irritated by flaws and limitations of this OS or lack of some important apps but at the end of the day i fall in love with it all over again.I so much like the feel of it. The happiness and exuberance when a flagship app arrives ,the joy when good and great things are said or written for WP , the excitement when something big happens with it...these feelings are unparalleled.You can get just about everything on android and iOS but the the feel of growing with WP is amazing.I am sticking with it forever.

    I came off of 7.8 and I asked myself long and hard if I wanted to change to an IPhone or stay with windows phone. I answered that question by getting a 1520 and I don't regret it one bit. Yes this OS might not be as polished as the others but moving from 7.8 to 8.0 was enough of an upgrade for me.

    I'm staying with windows phone. Also, I'm so excited for Windows Phone 8.1! I hope it adds a lot, and fixes a lot! And I hope the surface phone comes too! 😃

    I keep the phone for another year then I will switch to android.
    All the WP limitations make me feel fooled as both developer and user. Just to mention one: I don't have full control of my personal data because I can't export/backup my sms in a file (txt, xml, xls) that I can read/browse.

    I've already switched my primary phone to an iPhone and have ZERO regrets! My 920 is a fun backup, used for games and browsing certain apps like this one. My tablet is an Android, so I get to have/enjoy the 3 major OS's. Feels nice to be able to enjoy them all and not limit myself to one ecosystem.

    I have no plans on moving. I like the Windows ecosystem and I'm heavily invested in it, too. I've put up with the shortcomings this far, it will only get better the further we get anyways :P

    I've actually tried two times to go to android and once for iOS and come back every time. Yes, android has more apps but the OS experience was horrible. Freezes, random restarts, app crashes, and terrible slowdowns frustrated me at every turn. Stability and speed are worth a lot to me...and wp8 is the best that's I've used. iOS was better than android but I hated the lack of hardware choice and the apple lock in that's demanded of you. So couldn't be happier - nor could the wife who wouldn't give up wp8 unless they discontinued it.
    I use Android and WP. I don't have any of those issues with my LG G2. It's smooth, fast, stable and the battery is unbelievable.

    I tried the Nexus 5, and I ended up returning it a few days later, so to answer your question, I will stay with WP.. Apps will come by, and I'm satisfied with my Lumia 920 (except for the damn Tmo internet sharing bug.)

    I went from 521 to 810 to 822 to 925 in a span of 60 days. I am not thinking of 1020 or 1520.

    I might get another device probably a Nexus 5 or Moto X or Moto G but I will still use WP since integration with work stuff is awesome. I hate the other skins on Android and not being able to upgrade the software is a deal breaker for me.

    I am on T-Mo and on Android the "My Account" app recommended I restart my device once a week, I do not get that on WP!

    I'm cancelling my AT&T contract tomorrow and switching to an Android device on T-Mobile. WP has a lot going for it, and my 920 was a beautiful device, but there are just too many limitations. The WP app market is still extremely far behind, and nothing can make up for that, for my purposes.

    Had my very first mysterious shutdown\restart ever with WP8 on an L521 today after 75 days of constant use.
    Me Droid RAZr and ASUS TF tablet did this to me on a weekly sometimes daily schedule.
    (apologies for typing as though I'm anti-Android)

    I will stick with the reliability I've experienced to date with WP on Nokia devices.
    Poll me as very pleased with WP8.

    Windows is future, but i hate the present..its disappointing..

    I regularly recorded my lectures through android phone, than i sold it thinking wp has better media.. But i am doomed, not a single recorder is upto mark.. Its is not that windows phone lacks hardware.. Surprisingly, recording on whatsapp and video recording is just awesome.. Microsoft dint made an inbuilt recording app?? Nor even nokia is making any efforts to make any stable recording apps.. Nokia makes crap nokia chat beta, which is a waste, why cant they make one stable recorder?? I wonder how WhatsApp and video recording has flawless audio quality recording?? I lost so many lectures without recording, i am doomed.. I have to attend lecture more 12 months.. Recording audio was only option as later i can recall.. But basic things are missing in windows phone.. I tried almost all apps in stores.. Poor quality of recording, it often crashed for long recording... My class lectures are long, 5-6 hours.. I can't miss recording for a single minute.. But... Leave.. M very sad.. Sorry guys..

    Moreover, MSFT is least bothered about Non-USA region..

    Scroogled campaign disappointed me about Microsoft behaviour. Microsoft choose to cut competitor instead of competing..

    Lack of quality apps, totally unstable, beta , betas and betas...currently and totally depressed due to over decision of switching to Lumina/Window phone, can't buy new phone either.. I have spend all savings for my classes...

    Just a better recorder could made me happy..

    First and last windows phone, Lumia 625...

    I just don't get why, if recording your lectures are so important, you don't just spend the little amount of money and buy a dedicated recorder (my sony was $50) wouldn't eat up your cell phone battery and you would get better quality recordings....
    You're complaining about a feature that is a mere "nice-to-have" feature on the device. Cell phones are not optimized for recording because they aren't designed for that.

    I just made the switch to Windows Phone. I have the Lumia 1520. I have been with Android since Android 1.5. Android has come a long ways. I have had about 6 different Android phones with the last one being the Samsung Note with a 5" screen. I think WP will do the same. I also have the Motorola Xoom 10" Tablet. As far as phones are concerned every Android phone that I have had has gotten slower over time. My Note did the same thing. I reset it back to factory and it seemed quick again. I was told that every time a new version of Android comes out that it requires a phone with better specs so when current phones are updated they slow down a little because the new version of the OS was designed for a quicker phone. I think of Android as a toy and to get real work done I use Windows. Early next year I will be getting the Dell Venue 11 Pro Windows Tablet.

    Yes Android has a lot of features I miss that WP don't have yet but I can wait. I like the way WP feels as an OS better than Android. As of now I will never return to Android other than using Bluestacks on my Windows PC to run Android Apps. If Bluestacks works on the Windows tablet then I will have the best of both worlds.

    I will never do Apple.......................

    I am just not an Apple guy and have never owned any Apple products so that part of the equation is out of the question.

    I've owned a couple of Android phones a couple of years ago and had a lot of crashes and problems. No doubt Android has changed. However I RARELY have crashes or reboots with WP and the application issue is getting better. I am seeing positive movement with features, just not as quick as I would prefer.

    But at the end of the day I'm a WP guy and I really don't see that changing....

    Nah... i just like WP8, i don't see the lack of features that people demand so much, got all the apps i need and the OS is stable and fluid. Besides there is plenty of people using Android... for every 10 phones i see, 8 are Samsung, so my Lumia 920 is just like a rare item and feels exclusive and got people staring to my phone.

    Yes, I will keep using Windows Phone because I love being unique. ;)

    Some people say WP sucks because it does not have a lot of apps and games... Well, I don't care. At least I always have something to look forward to. You're looking forward when will this feature come, when will this popular app/game come, etc. You're seeing the OS grow in front of you. And I love that. It's like I'm watching a movie about an evolution or success story or something. LOL

    I was with android, then apple and now wp8. I like how simple the is is to use and clean. To me its elegant and more grown up looking. Apple to me looks dated and android kind of cartoonish. WP will keep growing and getting better. It has all the apps I need really. Love my Nokia Lumia 925. Best pictures ever. Switched my family and most friends over. Some didn't like or really understand the tiles until after they used it a few times. Now they love it. I look forward to more features. Need a 5 inch, super thin, with 2 great speaker, 32-64g, great battery, screen edge to edge, also ability to split screen multi task, merge windows rt and WP OS. Would tear it up. :)
