    You should have warned him in advance before he broke it.
    I did, he was confident enough to ignore me.

    Yeah, i'm the only one who's really updated. An OSX iPad would be a competitor tho...

    "Does it have an official YouTube app"

    The fact that so few people are aware of Windows Phones just goes to show how terrible Microsoft's marketing campaign has been. They're throwing away millions on dorky lifestyle oriented marketing, celebrity spots and that stupid Scroogled campaign. So not only are consumers left in the dark about what's being marketing but they're coming away with a bad taste in their mouth. It's been shown that consumers don't respond well to attack ads.

    What I've been finding is that no one even knows what Windows Phone is. They just assume I've gotten some really nice case for my iPhone. Nevermind that every single case that exists for the iPhone turns it into an ugly brick.

    I did seriously think about getting my Surface out of my bag and really go to town on him but I was scared either his head would implode or I would test out the durability of the device by beating him over the head with it
    Honestly dude I can not begin to express my thoughts on that story of yours. It really makes me worry about some people. And yes ahaha, I have the surface tablet and they are built like tanks. Why would he feel the need to make up rubbish about him owning your phone with his *****y iPhone ? Because in reality an iPhone doesn't even hold up a candle to a Windows phone.

    One person compared iPhone 5, galaxy s3 to HTC 7 mozart.
    I said why do you compare low end phone with outdated OS to high end phones ?
    He said: You stupid retard, do you want me to compare it with Lumia 920 ? You dumb piece of ****.

    I really didn't understood what he meant at the last sentence...

    Well , didn't catch up this thread for a while and after reading the posts.

    It reminds me of this : (happend like 10 years back)
    "On what device u play games ?"
    "On my Play station" (I didn't have computer till 2005)
    "Which company is your play station ?"

    I have the 8X, and here's something I get a lot:

    Them: "Is that a Windows Phone?"
    Me: "yeah"
    Them: "But how? It's an HTC...."

    It doesn't really surprise me how many people seem to think HTC only makes android phones. HTC really needs to do a better job with advertising. But kudos to these people for recognising the OS.

    This is the best thread I have ever read!

    Just as other countries have iSheep, we have AndroidBots over here in India

    I would like to share my experience (NL 920 here)
    I was travelling in metro one day and was browsing this website :D
    The guy sitting next to me said, "What phone is this?"
    I said, "It is the new windows phone from Nokia, Lumia 920."
    "Ohh, does it have android?"
    *facepalm*

    Another qualm I have heard about windows phone(apart from 'lack' of apps) is no proper 3d games
    Friend: Did you see this new *mindless and useless* app/game?
    Me: No, I don't need it.
    Friend: What do you do on your phone then?
    Me: I don't play games on my phone. Phones are not mean't for gaming. I have my Alienware for that.
    Friend: Too bad it's not in your app store!
    Me: Look, what would you like to play on? A small 4" screen with only two thumbs or on a 17" with any controller you wish and MUCH MORE awesome games?
    *Silence*
    Friend: But still, its fine for quick gameplay.
    Me: We have much better 'quick' indie games.
    *Frustrated*
    Friend: But still, there are less apps.
    Me: God d**mmit, you can have a million apps, but still wont have the one which does what you need!
    Friend: But having more apps is always better!
    *facepalm*

    Me: I've got those tiles.
    Friend: But that's a Nokia with ****ty Windows Phone OS, mine's an Android (she has a Sony)
    Me: *stunned face* Well that's me completely owned.

    She didn't seem like the techy sort of person so that's why her comment just hit me so hard.

    People had many misconceptions about WP,after the initial bad impressions they had experienced(or heard to be specific) with WP 6.5 and 7,No Bluetooth sharing was one of the major fact for many users to skip WP,lot of people still thinks WP8 is same as WP7 or its predecessors.
    In my place WP devices are started to showing up nowadays,specially after the launch of 620 and 520,when you have best available hardware and very stable software platform then why to worry about Apps? they will come eventually!

    (Observing my live tiles flipping) "Won't that use up your battery?"

    Unfortunately, about 10 minutes after my indignant "no", the battery level warning flashed on my Lumia 800.

    I must have an unapproachable face.

    No one has ever asked me about my HD7 or 8X. Not that I care. I prefer to not have the same thing as others. As long as I can pull out Modern Combat 4, Asphalt 7 and (to be) N.O.V.A 3 on the train, people (whoever they may be) will see the HTC and Windows logos, and then the awesome game play.

    Enough said.

    Just before I bought my Lumia 620, I was discussing with my family.

    At my cousin's 17th birthday party. Having dinner. He's got an HTC something.

    Me: So I'm saving up for a windows phone. It looks so cool. Have a look.
    Cousin: Ahh so that's windows phone. Looks ok.
    Me: Yeah it looks cool. Does everything my iPhone can do but way cooler. I certainly won't miss all the useless apps
    Cousin: Useless apps? What?
    Me: Well the app store isn't as big as ios and android...much less incentive to download apps I'll never use...
    Cousin: But doesn't it run android?

    To be fair not all iPhone users are like some of you have said but those type of users are in a minority.

    My housemate, who is quite tech savvy, recently moved to an iPhone from Android and she said that she likes other platforms but the iPhone seems like the right one for her at this point. I agree, I don't hate iOS or Android but WP8 is right for me at this point, I don't think I will go back to Android or switch to iOS but I do appreciate that others like them.
