    Did your credit card get charged or is it a free phone?
    Got charged the day it was placed. I'm keeping it anyway.

    I thought that with a canceled order you might have got a refund.

    Apparently Lazada didn't actually cancel it. I had doubts yesterday when I called customer service, and it arrived earlier.

    Hey I've seen that pic before using a different device though.
    Yup, when winter comes it has the same look in my neck of the woods...

    MSFT, the new Apple or should I say the original?

    I read the article and then some comments. Most people feel like you but of course there are defenders.

    It would appear MS is gaining some sort of rabid fans. The idea that MS can't do anything right seems to be the biggest retort by them.
    Lol. I mean, if I was an armchair CEO for a second, I would have delayed the 830 a smidgen and just undercut the 930 sales (which probably aren't doing as well anyways) and dropped the 801 processor in their and still sell it for $50 less, just to get people a truly affordable flagship that could hold folks over until 2015. It would make the 930 and 1520 as niche products, but they already are. And it would make comparisons to the one for Windows more valid than they are now.

    If MSFT was looking for a push into the lower markets, a 830 with that better processor and a cheaper price would do it. But, their arrogance knows no bounds. At least with the old Apple when they overcharged you, the experience was decent enough. The new Apple and MSFT are one and the same in my book these days. And then Google has the balls to try to follow these to some degree with their new Nexus pricing. Sigh.

    These companies take some of us consumers as sheep and those rabid yet mindless defenders keep justifying these actions with their putrid defensive efforts. Simply appalling.

    I agree completely with what you just said. I think the mindless followers are our biggest issue in the tech world today.

    I've survived on less. I can't sleep on long distance flights so I typically don't get more than 2-3 hours.

    I'm just annoyed that I'm going to work sick-ish in the new year. The cold I have is not that bad but it is disrupting my sleep.

    Not a good way to start the New year :/ it's almost hump day you can make it without turning into a zombie 😎

    You can come and get it. While you're here, take that 9 degree weather with you.

    That's the sad part. It is really hard to be fair and objective when knuckleheads like that remove the ability to debate honestly in such a manner.

    After reading this I think... ;)
    ... I did the right thing.
    So the thing is that I'm no longer WP user since today. I ordered Moto G 2014 from Amazon and it arrived today. Nothing special to say at the end. Snapchat pushed me into buying but there were quite many other apps I wasn't satisfied with on WP, eg. mostly non working Runtastic. So Lumia is going into drawer, waiting for W10, than I will probably test drive it for couple of days. I'm not necessarily gone forever, just until they sort this app situation, I know there will be some things I will miss but I feel I'm losing less than gaining.

    Welcome to the club. :) You picked a good phone so you'll have to tell us what you think. :)

    Most of us who have switched feel the same way. Thing is as time goes by you miss WP less and less sadly.

    There are some things that I wish android did similar to WP but those are minor. I wouldn't doubt there's ways to fix that but I haven't taken the time to sort it out.

    Hour you enjoy your new phone!
