    Some of my friends have really slow connection I mean 2G speed, so whatsapp used to work fine instant messaging, but now Skype is horribly slow in that department. Even the voice calling is slow. I know the video calling would be obviously slow that I agree, but what makes whatsapp perform well in low speeds, whilst Skype doesn't.
    On the feature side, I need to see whether the user is typing or the message is sent/read, features which I got used to in whatsapp.

    Being a MS product Skype is probably made with the mindset of US Europe customers with high speed data/WiFi and thus may not be optimized for 2g speeds we have in India but WhatsApp takes our market seriously and and is well optimised for our networks.

    Saw the rating in the store, there are good amount of 1s and 2s, considering how Microsoft advertises Skype as a best in class app, it certainly doesn't perform well(excluding the low speed factor), crashes every then and now, several call fails, If someone calls me, i often miss them cause Skype doesn't launch properly, this is sad.
