    My wife has an iphone 4S and has no complaints --- she really isn't the type to be interested in technology. But I showed her some of the Lumia 920's camera tricks and now she thinks it is far better than her phone. The camera is something non-techies can really relate to.

    Update..eleven days later my wife is loving her 8x. She has even wowed a couple of her ios fan friends who just didn't consider any option as they followed the herd over the Apple cliff.
    We are both enjoying our phones.
    HTC 8x and Nokia 822. Living happily ever after.

    Two month update. Wife loves her 8x WP. She says from time to time
    "I really love this phone"
    I'm happy for her. I am doing fine with my Nokia 822.

    Awesome! If she waited longer, she could have got the 928 when it comes out the end of this month, but that would be torture. I'm glad she likes her 8X.

    Can you ask her what are two or three things that make her love it? I'm always curious how non-tech people react to tech gadgets and what things stand out most.

    I guess I'm lucky, since my wife knows one rule in my house that there will be no Apple products. She is still using the HD7, but she likes my Nokia 920. She told me to give her my Nokia 920, when I upgrade to the next Nokia phone.

    My first smartphone was the 3G which I loved so much. But 6 months ago it was giving out, besides that it stopped getting Ios updates.
    I knew a new phone had to be purchased.

    I refused to buy a new iphone which has not changed much ever and pay 700 bucks for it (without contract since a contract makes no sense for me).
    So I looked at Androids but hated the whole plattform. My sis loves it and says it serves her well.

    I looked at apple devices again since I have a mac and Ipad. But I really didn't get happy with the 4s and then the 5.

    Then I heard of the Nokia Lumias and read up on wp8. I loved the livetiles from moment 1.
    In the end I got myself the black 820 based on the changeable cover and battery as well as micro SD slot.
    Have not wished for another phone since then. Especially now that I have purchased the nice grey cover and I see the other colors
    in my future.

    She likes having what she wants to see on her tiles (live or not).
    Camera.
    Great screen.
    Nice feel and size.

    That's really great info -- thanks. The final three are all hardware related, suggesting (at least in your wife's case) that there is room for the handset manufacturers to differentiate themselves without needing to go into the depths of the OS to make changes. Thanks again.
