    When I actually try to do anything on my phone, especially when I come out of lockscreen with an app running I'm always getting 'Resuming....' I never get that on my tablet. Ever.

    Some apps take forever to load. My data connection keeps dropping. I'm constantly having to perform soft resets and I won't go into the four to five times I've hard reset, the first causing me to send in my month old phone to Nokia Care. My battery is atrocious and forget about using GPS or Skype or even TapTalk as they all drain my battery and my phone would be dead in less than two hours and boiling hot.

    This is why I'm fed up. That's not even getting into the lack of apps or the couple of features that I wanted (supposedly coming) that never showed up. So why should I stick around? Because it's got Live tiles that more devs will soon ignore? Big woop! Has Hubs? Oh wait, they're pretty much gone. What else? Lockscreen? Who cares? Office? Mediocre.

    Give me a reason to stick with WP.
    I think you are one of the unlucky few who unfortunately got a defective handset :) No such issues on my cell though.
    By the way what are the couple of features you wanted and are coming? :curious:

    No way! :) Android lags like hell on Moto g with the latest 4.4.4 update on it. A family member of mine bought one, and was surprised at how smooth my 620 is than her phone. I only imagine a 920 will be a lot smoother than mine with a 60hz screen and 1 Gb ram...We have 3 Android devices in the family(2 Samsung's and a Micromax) and are either on 4.0/4.1.2. No kitkat yet....or ever. All of them lag. But again,this is only my personal experience.
    Dude, we are talking about high end Android and you bring up a Moto G as to say "Yes! Android lags!"? That is wack sauce.

    I do like MS Office for Android on my Z Ultra. On a big screen device like that, it has been a treat to use. Syncs to my Onedrive very well too. On a big screen like a G3, it is a treat.
    I did a search on Google Play and didn't see MS Office on there. Do you have to download it from somewhere else?

    Micromax canvas HD is/was a flagship phone. Quad core processor,1 Gb ram, 8 mp camera. Look it up.

    I had to dig to get the apk, but I have it and I love it. It isn't in the play store because MSFT and Google still don't play nice. If you want to try it I can send you the APK when I get home.

    Were coming. They haven't showed up yet. They were supposedly coming in GDR3 and in WP8.1. Didn't happen in either.

    I wanted reply with documents in email. A very important feature for me and anyone else who usually does business using their phone. It's one of the reasons why WP keeps failing to impress there.

    That was the main one. There were others but I can't remember them.

    I have Office 365. Is it available for download there? Otherwise, yes I'll have that. :)

    So a Moto g with 1gb ram and a quad core processor should lag,should it? Does that mean Android runs smoothly only on 2gb ram and an 8 core processor? If so, Android is not an OS at all, if it doesn't run smoothly on 512 Mb ram and requires ram greater than a desktop OS which runs with 512mb ram smoothly :P

    Look, we get your in love with WP. Just enjoy you phone. We'll enjoy whatever we get. We're just mostly discussing not having flame wars.

    If WP works for you, great. It doesn't work for everyone. No phone is perfect. No OS is perfect. As for 512MB devices, great but I hope they vanish soon.

    though it does seem that overall android seems to be the inefficient OS in terms of battery life.

    Well, everything is well documented. Now I have to clean up my bench, get some apples and something to eat for dinner, and then I can finally play around with my new phone ;-)

    I'd happily take a flagship Android over the 920 that I have. At least I know an update is coming and new hardware.

    that's true but we can all agree that the 930 isn't a successor to the 920

    It's supposed to be though. New OS and all. Pity that it just simply doesn't live up to expectations.
