    the operating system misses some important stuff, like sideloading, i would love to see for example TrueCaller; showing the name of an unknown incoming phone! its a dream that will never come true.

    3/10 for me, lack of message tones, rotation lock, crappy and not enough apps, unstable, no separate finger sounds, cant switch it off and charge, no t8 keyboard, no themes, crap layout, no impressed at all tbh, i don't like apple coz of their limitations on what you can do but when jailbroken the phone is good. The wp app store is appallingly poor.

    Unstable? In what way, may I ask?

    I get quite a few random reboots, random battery drains requiring a reboot, never happened on ios, i once had a tethered jailbreak on my ip4 and i went months without needing to reboot.

    What really sucks is i hate apples grip on the market, i really wanted more from wp but i its not lived up to expectations, i should have known from windows pcs that the os would be poor. Live and learn.

    7/10

    Good, still lacking certain features but for starters has one of the most original UI's and fresh way of handling things

    OSx sucks balls, i have to use it on a daily base because of my job but its ugly, un intuitive and alot of apps crash for no reason whatsoever...

    Also Windows phone is 2 years old now, iOS is 6+ years old now

    It took them like 4 years to get notification center and only now have they refreshed the look by [s]stealing[/s]Reinventing how iOS should look

    I think a lot of people are voting 8 just cause its WP8 haha

    I went with 8, but Its more like a 7-8. There's a lot wrong with the OS, but there's so much more good to it that negative. I'd like to see them move towards the Win8 way of updates where the Messenger, people, email, etc. are all considered "apps" that update through the store. It would make it easier for them to shoot out smaller updates to those things without having to wait for a larger update.

    There's a lot more to our messenger that I'd like to see done. It's a bit to basic now and is missing some key features that other phones have.

    And of course better connectivity with my PC. I should already be able to share content from my phone to Win8 and vice versa. I'd love to be able to send a webpage wirelessly from my pc to my phone, or share app stuff from one device to the next. I've been in the situation many times where I'm in the middle of reading an article, and I have to leave. It would be nice to be able to share that with my phone and have it open right up.

    Wow a lot of very low average scores....users that apparently own a WP8 device?...sucks for those, thankfully im happy with the device. It definitely ain't perfect, but I wouldn't consider it leagues behind iOS or Android...and I use both regularly.

    8/10

    10 if they allow:
    • Custom SMS/Notification sounds
    • Toast notification replay
    • Music+Video app redesign
    • Color wheel/HEX codes for accent colors
    • A better TellMe service (hopefully Cortana fixes this)
    • Seamless Office documents management without SkyDrive
    • Fixing the API so we can send videos via WhatsApp.

    Good with the potential to be great. The rumored changes in GDR3 and 8.1 would be a step towards great and I'm excited to see what they do after that to push it to excellent.

    7/10 for the moment.
    But hope that GDR3 changes that. MS need serious improvements.

    7 , there is a lot to be done, but I love the overall stability. Needs a notification / toggle panel system that can be accessed at all times urgently. Also, some things are appalling. How on earth can it lack a tile for tasks out of the box?? The colors of the tiles need tweaking, and we should have the option, to have transparent tiles with a personalized background.

    I would say 7/10. It is fantastically smooth but still lacks a few necessary official apps. I know we have third party apps for a lot that is missing but I don't think the average consumer will research enough to figure that out. Also, Xbox music still is not that great- the interface for your music collection needs to be improved and how you buy music in the store.
