    Some of you may have seen I have been thinking about switching from Apple to Microsoft, and I've been asking for peoples' experiences of switching from iPhone to Windows Phone.

    Well this review was the tipping point for me:


    And a follow-up:


    Great review, done beautifully.

    Beautifully done. The author is a designer at Microsoft. Wish I was half as talented. My best creations are merely stick people in comparison.

    I managed to find a yellow Lumia 920 on ebay at a good price, got it today...it is way better than I expected and makes my Lumia 900 look and feel old! So yes, definitely no buyers regret here!

    I'm guessing it was a Sony RX-1:

    The honesty of that review is what makes it stand out. Really great camera work to sell the phone's different features, too.

    This from our forum rules:

    [INFO]Link to Mobile Nations Stories Only - Please link all related stories to the appropriate Mobile Nations blog. For example, if you are talking about a new Android device that just came out... Link to the story on the Android Central blog, instead of some other site. Chances are we wrote it first, better, and deserve a little love. In addition, do not copy and paste stories in their entirety. Writers (from all sites) work hard, and deserve proper credit. We reserve the right to remove links to posts or close threads linking to articles similar to those published.[/INFO]

    Please do not links story's from other blogs on this forum. I am going through your posts and removing all the links to websites that are not part of the Mobile Nations family. Per our rules do not post links to outside websites in the future.

    Thanks for understanding,
    Dave Blake

    No kidding, what a terrible policy. I understand it is a Mobile Nations forum and they can make all the self serving rules they want.
    However, it really limits a real Windows Phone community voice with corporate rules like this.
    What if Facebook only allowed links to Facebook posts, or Twitter only allowed links to Twitter Posts?
    What is Mobile Nations so scared of, the cream always rises to the top.

    Completely agreed, looks very absurd. But it must be because they must generate some income somehow - not that I quite get how this would work though. But if people were thus allowed to register and post links to other pages that generate revenues for their owners, then I do see the point of this. Not that i think that was Evilrob's intention at all.
    "Chances are we wrote it first, better, and deserve a little love.". Chances are they didn't write it in the first place and/or have no intention to write about every story out there.... that's the problem.

    Their policy is so freaking unfair. Citing the source is a must for solution and journalism, period. Their policy is hypocritical. They want you to post your content/hacks/tips on their discussion forum without citing source. Lot of people run their blog/site which provides useful/helpful tips and if they take the chance to post their article here or if someone else does....THE SOURCE has to be cited. "No Outside links" crap builds a pool of resource that they OWN?? dahell.
    We have to find a better, more open posting for Windows Phone and Windows related issue.

    If you were to type " into your favourite search engine, if you come across a review with beautiful photos written by a guy who switched from an iPhone, you will have found it.

    I am shocked that is a rule here on mobile nation. But as a forum owner, I do understand.

    The review was excellent though. I searched through Bing :)
