    I find it hard to believe that phones can be just as powerful as computers.

    Belongs they text and call im happy.
    Some phones are actually more powerful than some computers if you compare the specs. Those also cost more. The main problem is the small screen and the lack of a keyboard. But if you attach a BT keyboard and a big screen, you can do quite some work with it.

    Here was an early example of that: Breakthrough device of CES: Motorola Atrix = Phone + PC - TechRepublic

    Windows Phone is better. I knew this from day one, at the time, everyone denied my suggestion.

    Switching from an Android from Sony to a Lumia 520 was the best thing I've done this year so far, not including all the awesome games I got on the Steam Summer Sale lol.

    Now I can finally say I have absolutely nothing to do with Google, except having a YouTube account (and, by force, a G+ account) and I can sleep soundly at night lol

    I registered as a dev to get WP8.1 early and, to be honest, I don't even remember what WP8 looks and feels like anymore lol
    Can't wait to get the final version. I set the phone to the US region so I've got Cortana, and it's amazing, even though I'm in Central Europe.

    Windows Phone 8 OS Could be of better use if it has many apps, I remember Rockstar Games releasing San Andreas for Mobile phones but the Cloud Saving for WP8 was cut.

    That is the only difference between WP & Android the Apps, then again how many apps do you need ?

    That is a good point. The apps I use in Android are quasi the same as the ones that I use with my W8Phone. Android does have a lot more apps, but if you don't need them, it does not matter.

    I'd like to get a Windows Phone, not sure if I can due to other circumstances
    I've always been, and always will be a strong advocate for Windows Phones, over Andriod. I hope Microsoft does not kill it, as I read they are making an Android version.

    How about the Lumia 521 for $69 without contract. I use that without a contract and do all my calls with VoIP @ 1.2 cents per minute.

    I personally prefer the Android platform. One reason I chose Android (I currently have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and my first Android device was the Samsung Captivate) was the freedom it offered in customizing the interface and choosing applications. Aside from the Google Playstore I use an Amazon App store which offers a free app a day. Some of the apps offered are junk but many are quite good and useful (both games and productivity apps are offered). I also really like the Google search and Googly Maps integration on the Android phones.

    The numbers, see page 2 > http://uk.kantar.com/media/743400/ka...r_30_06_14.pdf Seems there is hope in some countries, and close to zero interest in others. But some quite good percentage here and there, so maybe.... I personally like the idea of an alternative to the 'big 2', and the lumia's I've tried have left a positive impression. Nokia knows how to build phones, and the OS is evolving.
