    I love reading them too . Its great having a phone that's a little different, its so true that most ppl don't like change or something not the norm.
    I cant wait for the price of the Nokia Lumia 620 shells to come down in price. Once they are cheap enough i will be buying all of them, a different colour every day just to have isheep asking is that yet another new phone lol.
    Hahaha same :-D :p

    I simply answered, "this is Lumia, and what you see is a Live Tile on my Start Screen."

    that's basically why i hate Apple: the way their products are overpriced! here in Brazil, iPhone 5 costs around 2500 reais and trust me, this is a LOT of money for a phone! a LOT of money just to FB/Instagram everyday!

    but that's what Apple became: status! pplz pay the price just to say "i have an iPhone" and they become snob thinking everything else is sh*t!

    i never thought iOS to be bad....i just hate how Apple created a generation who pays for an expensive fancy logo just to think they are better than everyone else! and don't even get me started on how clueless and ignorant iSheeps are...

    pretty much why i'm anti-Apple lol not because of the OS but because of overprice and stupid users!

    p.s: yeah i know Android and WP also has stupid users but they tend to be a lot less clueless than iSheeps
    I ffeel the same way here in the states. If IOS did not carry this fraudulent high value thing, it would be ok... I have had it, an might get another iPad due to all the apps I paid for, a couple were useful...

    I just ignore peoples comments. Whether it is mac or PC, android or IOS... People are so ignorant sometimes.

    I'm very comfortable in me, the way I dress, speak, live, etc... I enjoy smacking people around with... I have and in some cases still own them all... (Crickets chirping)... I STILL made my choice... Money wasn't an issue either.

    My mac just sits, yet my windows 8 and 7 get the action... My mac is not old... I had two, but sold one... My iPad just sat there once I got my surface, but I sold it.

    Usually those people either know nothing about Thor device and purchased because it was cool or if they are in the android camp (geeks like me) just want to tinker... Believe me I'm a tinkerer, but wp8 is a great smartphone... It just simply works. I am in and out... Not tinkering... No wasting time.

    Bottom line, I love being on the outside, if WP went to the top, I may just makes be so I would be with the sheep.

    "What iPhone is that?" - that's my boss, in a pub after work last night. I want to quit end of this month.
    Dude, I know it is annoying, but it is just a phone.

    Just people know iPhone. Like my 75 year old great-aunt asked "Is that an iPhone?". It is annoying, but sometimes you can't argue.

    OMG I love the live tiles, an isheep was recently having a conversation about my phone lately and asking how certain things worked on it. He showed me sum stuff on his iphone and i showed how a Windows Phone handles similar things.
    Windows Phone did alot of it so much smoother but he obviously wasn't having none of it. His argument about the live tiles for people and photos etc is, You cant stop them moving tho...
    How do you respond to that, ppl r just nuts.

    OK , Tell me how many people have moving things on their desktops ? I have seen almost none.When Windows 8 came , some of them tweaked and messed with some metro apps but now they don't use them anymore , they just use desktop apps now.Probably felt wow factor is gone now.

    Lot of people hate the idea of live tiles because they are habituated to icons on their desktops and other devices.

    Different people , Different tastes

    The thing I keep hearing from Android users is that windows phone doesn't have background wallpapers. Even though the lock screen does, my brother hates WP due to this reason. Although he doesn't really like WP in general for other differences, but that one seems silly to me.

    Whats the point of background wallpaper when 90% of it is covered by tiles ? I don't get this either.

    And we also have white or black to choose from which gives it a clean look.

    Spent a day out and about with a friend who has an iPhone...i proved him wrong on all his thoughts about WP, and I laughed the 3 times that he had to charge his battery. He syncs everything just like I do. He asked me if I needed to charge the battery on my 920, I said no I am good for at least another 24 to 36 hours! Lol

    I actually worked at Apple Authorised Reseller as a repair support for Apple products, but even not all of my friends in my workplace uses iPhone. Well, I knew all the bad things about iPhone, and based on that, I never moved away from Microsoft. Since highschool I have used Windows and things from Microsoft, and it just feels right for me.
    Taking a Windows Phone is not a wrong decision at all for me.
    Let me tell you one thing, those iSheeps who buy things and stuffs for their iDevices at my place, they keep looking on my Lumia, and keep asking me why I dont use iPhone since I am working at an Apple AR. I only answered, iPhone doesnt fit with me, I have a Microsoft environment, and to be specific, I am happy with my Lumia cause of its OS smoothness. After I described that, another customer (who is going to be an iSheep) ask to borrow him my Lumia for a demo. Funny! He cancelled an iPhone, to rethink his decision to buy an iPhone. My store manager asks me not to show my Lumia again to customers. Hahaha

    I can not express how bad that is, the guy saying that because windows phone doesn't have Instagram; an app which will take and use your photos for advertising makes a pone rubbish And facebook? WP as you know has a dedicated hub, tile or app for that and it integrates facebook, outlook, Hotmail and all other accounts syncs beautifully and efficiently.

    and the black feels so relaxing to the eyes, specially when using in dark rooms!

    I can understand their point of view though...What's the point of having cool a phone if it can't take a pic of food/feet/duckfaces and send it filtered to one of the biggest social networks ? Lots of casual users don't care about how smooth the OS is. They just care about Facebook, instagram and whatever is cool.

    I was asked by a 16 yr old girl what kind of phone I had (920). She said it looked really cool.

    When I replied it was a Windows Phone, her faced turned sour and she said "Oh those things are so slow and buggy. And my friend said they get the blue screen of death."
    I told her it was smooth and didn't get the BSOD, that was just a lie haters told. I showed her how smooth it was. I also told her that Android phones were the slow, buggy phones, not WP.

    Then she said "Oh well those phones are for little kids or nerds. IPhone is more professional and business like. That's why I use it!"
    I was like wow, she went full retard on me.
    After that comment I just told her it was obvious she was clueless and I walked away.

    - "What's that?"
    *Doubted eyes*- "A phone?"
    - "A laggy and cheap Android one? Is it Samsung?"
    - "Dude, it's Nokia Lumia 920, and it runs Windows phone 8, not Android, and it isn't laggy"
    *Smirk* - "Even more pathetic! What's in your mind to waste money on a dead platform which has no app and game anymore?"
    *Shake head and walk away, act like feeling sorry for me*

    Me from behind widely open my eyes, bad finger to him from his back and ask myself: "What the ****???". Then I feel sorry for him, truly in my heart. No, really truly.
