    I will tell you straight up, I moved from a Samsung focus running 7.8 to a Lumia 920, and omg, if felt like a new operating system. Much more in depth that windows phone 7.8, trust me, you'll love it. But definatly get Nokia, it has all the best support and features

    I gotta say, it's awesome to actually see a comprehensive list of what I'm missing while I'm stuck on my Lumia 900, as I'd never really gotten a chance to look into it myself. All the more reason for me keep on saving up for that 1020...
