    which Lumia do you have? it'll make it better if we know which model we're dealing with.

    my input is the great design, fluid performance, primarily black color scheme...
    I'll come up with more later probably

    To me, it's not a simple matter of better or worse. When you measure of pure specs and stats, Windows Phone will be better at X, but Android will be better at Y, and iPhone will be better at Z. In my opinion, it's a matter of overall experience. To that, Windows Phone is my favorite. The user interface provides a great overview of the data you want to see on your phone, as well as almost always looking clean and fluid and consistent across different apps and phones . I think Apple's and Android's recent emphasis on UI have come as a result of WP. The core of the operating system was well optimized to run on smartphone environments, even with low powered ARM processors, the performance is generally very good for the OS itself.

    The overall result just makes a generally enjoyable and satisfying mobile experience. It isn't always easy to show in commercials, and it won't make your friends jealous, but it's why I continue to use Windows Phone.

    Some of these have been mentioned...

    Cortana Assistant (try texting by voice works well, also get cortana to sing, tell a joke, do an impression, predictions, reminders etc )

    Sat Nav its fully featured and has offline mapping and works world wide its a great app.

    Emails are fast and easy to check in the notification centre also the email app is fast too.

    posting photos to some social networks is faster on Windows Phone less steps to do.

    Very fast navigation doesn't lag like the other OS's,

    Very secure, less risk of data loss, identity theft.

    There are many other reasons, cant think of them at the moment, But Windows phone is a solid choice and especially once Windows 10 is on our phones (possibly around June) or if on the preview maybe April or sooner. We will see the OS grow in size and sales in a huge way...This is just the beginning of the future.. Microsoft will lead the way...

    Lol, I used to see a fair few but its improved a lot, battery saver allows you to disable background tasks, and you need to clear temp files, but I only see loading/resuming occasionally now...i am running the preview software on my lumia 830..but it beats andriod and ios hands down in many situations loading etc..

    With their bright colours, Windows Phones are easier to see in the dark, so no need to use a Find My Phone type service.

    If you have a 920, show your friends how you can use it to drive nails and also for self defense.

    Your friend likely won't give a crap about avoiding Google, but aside from the fact that I hate that company with a passion, here is the #1 reason I stick with Windows Phone:

    I turned on my Xperia Z2 (since sold) for the first time, and the Launcher crashed. The Launcher. Done.

    Flawless, lag free UI. Live tiles make up my day for almost everything. Start background on tiles, live updates on lock screen, glance etc. Offline maps(sometimes very important to me). Excellent camera(if you have pureview). Extended updates even for old phones.(WP 8 devices would be getting WP 10 update)
    Also Nokia's build quality.
    That's all I can think of...

    hit him with the hard brick of all. ask the battery performance and compare. unless he is having note2 / s4 / s5 or htc one, u can outperform even with lumia 520.

    Really how long does your battery last my Lumia 520 lasts not more than 6 hours without any usage .with usage don't even ask.1 hour of offline music eats about 20%.Not a problem with battery ,it's a genuine and brand new brought 1 month ago.

    Try a soft or a hard reset. If that doesn't fix it, go to Nokia care centre.

    I have to make clear that Samsung also has the (offline) Here navigation. It is still in Beta but I downloaded it and it works just the same as with my L 1020.
    At first there was a problem with adding speech but it has been solved..

    That's easy, they are already jealous. Its smooth and sleek, unlike any android device. Secondly, take a photo and have them take one with their android device, revel in your glory as their photos are dark, cloudy, and soft where yours will be bright, sharp and clear.

    I got all day and a bit with moderate to heavy useage out of my 520. I gave the phone to a friends son when he dropped his iPhone. He loved the 520 over the iPhone. So I never got it back. ha ha. It does better than my note with speed, battery life and overall experience. I was ready to toss my note out the jeep window as it is crap.

    Tell them about the resistance of the phone. If a Lumia drops on the floor, there are 2 options:
    the floor breaks
    the Lumia bounces and return in your hand


    Instead iPhones and various Android devices shred their screen in pieces even while in the pocket and getting wood...

    I can only speak from my own experience but I now find Android to be boring, aside from the initial "Look at all the customisation I can do" that's about it, there's not really anything Android can do that WP can't once the initial wow factor of Android wears off.

    I guess I am saying that Android gets very boring, very quickly.
