    Find out what is causing wakelocks and memory/processor consumption. There are apps for this, or you could root+installing another rom. Disable most of the google services if you're not using them and also turn off samsung consumer features.

    Do you find this acceptable? Is the run of the mill consumer who's never heard of XDA or A/C going to have this knowledge? We know how to find these tweaks because we're enthusiasts but some poor schmuck who just dropped a few Benjamins will be less than thrilled.

    This has always annoyed me about Android. The answer to a problem with a phone should NEVER be to root it. If I have to root a phone to fix something, that's a problem. I don't care if people root their phone for more control or to install different functions. That's cool, and more power to them. But rooting as a solution to a problem shouldn't be an acceptable answer for anybody, but it seems to be the go to answer in the android community, as if it's a cure all.

    Had an 820 then a 928...i was attracted with the note 3 big screen size...after using windows phone OS i realised how retarded Android is...biggest mistake sold it after 2 weeks...now waiting for my lumia 1520...things on android cant be done faster than on windows phone...and having office integrated is a huge plus...On WP OS u download an app and 99% the app performs well...the way u want it to be...on android its an infinite search for something basic...

    I was with Android for several years. I had the Captivate, Infuse, Note and a couple of others. Over time each one got laggy. Only way to fix was to do a reset. Phone would be smooth again for a while but got laggy again.

    I'll stick with windows....

    You shouldn't have to fix things this way, but it is nice that it is possible on android. Wish it were possible to fix things on WP.

    I'm more than likely sticking with WP for a while. My little Lumia 521 does what I need, and has a good battery life. So I can't really complain.

    I've had the 620, 820 and lastly the 920.Unfortunately, MS has let me down by not implementing usefull features in its updates, so I've moved on and got a Nexus 4.I'm so so sorry to say but I will not return to WP after spending 2 months with the Nexus.Since I got it, I went form Android 4.3 to 4.4 and 2 days ago to 4.4.2.Each and every update made dramatic improvements to my device, things that I was expecting especially from MS and they never delivered.With the last update, the Nexus 4 is faster, has much better battery life and the new UI looks very fresh.
    I still have the 920 so I often compare them side by side, to see how both platforms compete.(especially since they are both the same age and generation).
    I agree with you. Amber? Black? GDR3, either basic improvements such as support of 1080p and 4 core processor that should be done a year ago or baby steps. It is rumored that wp8.1 is coming out in Spring, 2014. That is too late for me. I started with HTC titan, bought a Lumia 920. I am currently using a Lumia 1020. In my hand, I have an iPhone 5s and a note 3. At this moment I am not sure which one to keep.

    I'll stay with it. I have a L928 now and I'm excited to see what awesome phone will be available when it's time to get a new one. WP is smooth, powerful, attractive, and still has so much potential to improve in areas like getting more apps, better cameras, batteries, screens, processors, etc. I'm excited for Windows Phone's future. ๐Ÿ™Œ

    Well, I am planning to move on from Windows Phone.
    I'll buy Android phone(will be my first Android phone)
    Now Android offer pretty fast and smooth OS experience.
    Not to mention Google services are better than Microsoft for non USA users.
    And Android app ecosystem is also better.

    My experience on Windows Phone is just ok ok ( not bad neither good)
    I like Windows Phone developers preview but other than that , it's just ok. May be because Microsoft services are more US oriented.

    I am thinking to buy Moto X successor or next Nexus (if it's exist)

    I hate the fruit company so I have never used them and will never use them. I recently moved from Android (so glad that I did) and now I'm staying with Windows forever. Windows OS is smoother and has everything I need. Android had been a nightmare with constant freezes and lags and reboots. I owned Samsung Captivate, Infuse and Note 2, all had lag and I had to constantly reboot every single day. WP has yet to freeze on me and has been running smooth since day one.

    If my phone were to break tomorrow, I'd be on the hunt for another Windows phone.
    I don't like Google or Apple, Microsoft is the lesser of three evils.

    I also like the layout of the start screen far better than any other smartphone I've had or seen.

    I'm now planning to switch back to Android. The absence of web filter app in the store is a big deal for me. If only they have that option in IE it might not be a problem. Microsoft need to seriously consider this. I hope they will soon!
