    WP is quiet popular in India and I know a lot of people using it . In fact I myself pursued around 3 people to move from Android to WP . And they seem to be satisfied with it .

    I had a friend in a class with a 521, she was on Portico! (the horror!) So I got her an SD and fixed up everything.

    I have three acquaintances with 521's, a friend who used to have one. I saw a couple 920's in my school. Friend's mom has a 920.
    Someone lost a 521 a few months ago, it was posted around a bit.
    I was crossing the street and this car turns in front of me, the passenger had a 521 in plain view.

    My sister has a 521, almost sold my other sister on a 925, but she needed a special medical related app. She hasn't gotten a new phone though.

    Haven't seen any 520's or higher end ones like the Icon and 1520 in person yet oddly.

    My wife quickly jumped on board after having to deal with so much instability within Android. She's a farm girl with almost none of my technical background so Android was REALLY frustrating for her. She'd been eyeballing Windows Phone since I had the 1020 and made the jump after having general Android unreliability put her in one too many stressful situations.

    My bro recently made the switch too... mostly to deal with less memory management and force closes. My dad is interested, but there's simply nothing worthwhile being offered that works with Virgin Mobile USA or Boost Mobile. Microsoft is missing out on a lot by having absolutely nothing to offer either of those networks.

    I see a LOT of Lumia 520's in the wild, but they are mostly my clients or people I pass by on college campus... not actually people I know. I'll see a 1020, HTC 8X, Huawei Ascend, 928 or a fellow 1520 every now and then, but it's mostly 520s.

    I saw what looked to be a Lumia 520/521 that a young man had on the plane in the seat in front of me. I don't see many Windows Phones in the wild, but then again I don't really look to see what phones people have either.

    Just bought a lumia 620 for my elder sister. She was android user from past 5 years. Yesterday she said that windows phone is much better then android no lags, fantastic camera. My sister is 45th person now who is using windows phone. Microsoft is now showing love to India. I guess windows phone have beaten ios market in India.

    This is due to Windows phone being cheaper to ios iPhones.nd it being smoother than android in low end.

    Amazing how the tables have turned. Apple was unable to compete with Microsoft because they lacked desktop software and now Microsoft is unable to compete in the mobile market for the same reason.

    My wife and I were Android users before switching to WP8 (HTC 8x and Lumia 928) couple of years ago.

    WP8.1 OS has lots going for it but lacks high quality apps. For example, I installed a Q-See security system at my house over one year ago and I still cannot find a single WP8 app (free or commercial) for remote viewing. Meanwhile, there are dozens of compatible free remote viewing apps for Android and iOS. Inability to find apps like the Costco app, bank apps and such is a major problem with WP8. Also, many of the WP8 apps that do exist are simply crappy compare to their Android and iOS counterparts. An example is the WP8 Amazon Kindle Reader which lacks 75% of the basic functionality that exists in the Android and iOS versions.

    We I have finally given up on WP8 and are switching to iPhone 5s and Galaxy s5 phones.
