    After months of debating I finally decided to trade in my galaxy s3 for a Nokia lumia 920. I wanted the new lumia 1020 but not due an official upgrade on my contract till the summer so thought I'd get the 920 in the meantime as it was a similar price to my s3.

    Been using it for 2 days now and have totally fell in love with the windows phone OS, it looks great and runs so smooth. Having a samsung I've been used to having lots of lags And crashes with their bloat wiz software.

    Was a bit concerned about lack of apps but seeing that the official Instagram app had recently been released went a long way to assure me that the main apps I want are either here or are on their way and I so far have not missed any app that I had on android.

    So keep up the good work on windows phone8 Microsoft, you definitely have gained a new user here.

    got the yellow one, was unsure at first on the colour but after a couple of days using it I have started to like it.

    Have had 2 people at my work ask me what type of phone it is as they liked the colour.

    Welcome ! I admit that I'm making a switch since I saw my colleague using the Lumia 1020 last month. I just can simply say the OS was smooth & fluid . As a user too , windows phone 8 currently didn't have a notification center since we are using the live tile . I really looking forward for upcoming windows phone 8.1 updates .

    Go to a forum (let's say, the Ativ S forum), and there should be an option to start a thread.

    You can't start a forum, though.

    just keep finding little things that make me like the OS even more. Latest one is I wanted to buy an app so pressed buy and expected to have to mess on with adding a credit card but then it just popped up and said did I want to add it to my Vodafone bill. Couldn't do that on android.

    Sums up my experience so far.
    I was deleting e-mails one by one a while back and a message appeared saying:
    "Do this often?"
    Tip:
    "tap on the left side of the screen to open the selection option for deleting messages!"
    Kind of slick I thought.

    As a former Blackberry and Android user, I'm gonna say this.

    The ONLY thing I miss about Android is the whole custom ROM thing. But even then, you have to have a popular phone, and blah blah blah. And really, why should I go through all that trouble of rooting/flashing a rom to fix things that should work in the first place? Honestly.

    Back on topic! Welcome to the Windows world! I joined the windows community recently (Or again, if you want to count my Motorola Q) and I love it. The apps since I've been here since November 19th have been growing exponentially and improving a lot.

    Are there somethings iOS and Android have that we don't? I'm sure. Likewise, I'm sure there are things we have that they don't. (Xbox achievements comes to mind right away.)

    So again, welcome! And enjoy!

    I used to use a lot of custom roms on my android devices but only used them to get rid of things like lag, improve battery life stuff that this Lumia 920 seems to do without messing about with.
