Last time I saw, Nokia/MS had sold around 7 million 920s. That was around December of last year.

That's so sad that their best selling is a low range phone :(

Yes partly but Affordable and great for the money because there's a bunch of cheap android phones which are not as fun to use...

Agree. $70 cannot buy a good android phone.
$100-$130 then yes, there are some great android phones I can get (Samsung and LG). But for $70 or less, the 520 and 521 rule.

$50 right now after rebate for the Moto G on Cricket, aka aio.

$70 for the Moto G on Verizon

Around 80-100 for the Moto G on Boost.

It might be the only decent low cost one, but in the WP camp, they only have one as well.

Isn't the Lumia 520 free after rebate over cricket? XD
Anyway, I find the Verizon and Boost Mobile ones not really worth it. I did buy a Moto G verizon just to play around using wifi, and it's great. But then I would hate to bind with Verizon because of a cheaper Moto G. The service costs is just too high it makes $70 not a good deal to me at all. (I pay $30 for service with T-Mobile and get 2gb of 4g data. Verizon prepaid costs much more)

How are you getting 2GB of data for $30? If you want a plan that compares to Verizon, you have to pay around $40 a month.

Here is the kicker - Tmobile for some stupid reason, won't offer the Moto g. And their coverage sucks compared to Verizon. That matters to a lot of people around me.

Of course, 3G on verizon also sucks. But it is there :)

Good, that is one way that Google became dominant, cheap devices are good for consumers.

On another note I'm definitely looking forward to the " McLaren" smartphone. If the rumors turns out to be valid that device will not only differentiate WP low and high end experience it will also set it apart from all devices in general.

i bought this phone just to try windows phone.. but after 2 months i sold it to my office mate. the reason: the limited apps in windows store.. Performance of this phone is acceptable for a low to mid range phone..this is even better than a low to mid android smartphone...less lag compared to those phone on same level that running android...based on my own experience..

Do us a favor, quit your yapping and tell us all the major apps and games that WP does not have and ill tell you what it has, is that a deal, or you're just gonna chicken out?.

Actually, the beta is quite good, it's faster and looks much better than 6tag.

You should have also mentioned 6tag, IMO. It's a 3rd party app for Instagram, which has much better features than the actual Instagram app. I prefer it to Instagram whenever I fire up my Lumia 925.

Flipboard is coming, it is already available on Windows. YouTube is entiely Scroogle's fault. And all of the other sh*t you've mentioned are minor apps. Most of the people don't use them. I don't think 100 million people in the world own an Audi or BMW. Stop yapping BS here. Do something productive.
