Android was so enjoyable 2 years after its conception back when Froyo & Gingerbread were still a thing....

81% smartphone market share shows android who's king. IOS is queen and then wp is their jester that both laugh at all day.

4.2 android is smooth, although not as smooth as Windows Phone. Theres no proof, but I guess that Kit Kat will be as smooth as WP. And I guess that future OS distribution will be like Android 70% (Samsung and LG doing well) iOS 15% ( brand satisfaction, strong sales on high end market), WP 15% (customers from feature phones and low end androids,but if MS removes Nokia branding it might drop marketshare).

How does being popular make Android better❔ Does any of those entry level devices, that make up 90% of Android's 80% market share, compete with Lumia devices in terms of quality, and functionality❔.. In reality Android has 70% of crap on the market, and 10% of worthy devices.. WP has 90% of worth devices because Nokia owns 90% of WP market share, and all Lumia devices have proven to be great,, despite what petty, ignorant, shallow, threatened, immature, ugly little, no english speaking, closed minded, followers like you think..

So is the lumia 520 a great device? No its not. Its a cheap entry phone with a lousy low resolution screen. No front facing camera, and no rear camera flash. With only 512mb of ram, dual core 1ghz CPU. This one phone model has sold more than any other lumina. I believe its around 23-25% of all lumia sales.

WP is worse. It's hard to copy everything. Why the f**k do I need to sync just to copy a file?

You need comparisons with android craps? Nokia Lumia 520, is a crap device. With the same amount of money, I can buy Lenovo A706 which has 2000 mAh battery, better screen and quad core Snapdragon S4. And for Lumia 625, I want to laugh at Lumia 625 screen. 625 is a sh**ty overpriced phone with horrible specs. Lenovo P780 with the same price blows the Lumia 625 out of the water.
Never heard of Lenovo K900? That premium phone is just $450 and can destroy all WP phones in the world (except in camera department).

Want to say android lags? Just want to tell you, with custom ROM and launcher, I can launch & browse everything smoothly eventhough its CPU is a single core mediatek.

And Nokia Asha? What the f**k is that thing? It can't even do browsing properly.
Dude, I can buy an android device as low as $80, equipped with dual core mediatek, 512 MB RAM, GPS & HSDPA. Thanks to China. Can Nokia do that? Look at that horrible overpriced Asha. It's an useless phone.

You are really ignorant. WP doesn't have 90% of worthy devices, they have only like 5% marketshare. You are quite close minded if you think that WP is only good option. 90% of people prefer android and iOS, if you haven't noticed. For example, in your scale very ''worthy device'' aka GS4 sold 40 million, same as whole Lumia line. And high end "worthy" iPhones sold tens of millions as well. And when you call Android fans with those names, you sound really desperate and retarded. Grow up and learn to respect other peoples opinions.

Honestly, you sound like the ignorant one here. Nokia makes up 90% of WP's market share, and you mean to tell me that this 90% not worthy? The point you tried to make here is contradictory since you alluded to the iPhone as being "worthy," even though you acknowledged that it sold more than Lumias. I get your irony and I agree with you that the iPhone is not a worthy device, but sales alone do not make a device worthy. Needless to say it, but I'm going to say it again. iOS' worldwide market share of 14% is dangerously close to WP's 4%. WP Lumia sales have skyrocketed, are are already up 200% while WP's market share is up 156% from last year. Comparatively speaking, Android and iOS have been stagnant and haven't made any significant increase. They're literally flat. Analysts predict an even higher upward trend for 2014. That certainly translates to WP gaining market share at the expense of iOS. Android aside, 4% IS substantial when talking about iOS. It's just the beginning, and yet, results are already showing an upward trend for WP leading into Q1 2014, while iOS and Android stay practically stagnant.

Okay, I actually meant that iPhone is worthy device, I just saw your fellow Winboy raging about how WP is only proper OS and he/she said that 9 out of 10 Android phones suck and so on. Things like that really piss me off. And I hope that you understand that WP isn't taking customers from iOS but they are taking them from feature phone market with 520 and 620. iPhone sales are just growing slowly and steadily.

The lumina 520 got 23-25% of all the lumina sales. Without that one model. The WP platform would be stagnant. The growth of a platform is reliant on the success of its low end handsets as well as it's high end handsets, as well as its ecosystems.

Do they prefer iDroid over WP, or is that all that they know about❔ So, you going to tell me that the iPhone, and the GS3-4 are the three best devices of all time period just because they were the most chosen❔ What percentage of the people who chose those three devices really know about every android option❔ Do you think that most of those devices weren't really bought because of people's perception that they are the best on the market based on popularity❔.. If you believe that's what defines whether a device is good or not then you better have either some type of iPhone, a GS3, or a GS4, because they are the most sold smartphones of all time.. So, by your theory if you don't have one of those three devices then whatever Android device you have is just as crappy, and insignificant, as our WP devices.. Hey, don't get mad at me,, it's your bull$hit theory..

Oh boy a troll decides to create a new account. Ok I might be speaking too soon although the first part of your comment and username goes hand in hand, but Samsung is not better than Nokia just because it's Asian. Yes Samsung is dominating Android because of its wonderful technology, but Nokia is doing a stunning job too. I'm glad to see you love both companies, but let's not do the whole one race above the other.

Because Google doesn't like Microsoft poking fun at them. And because WP isn't yet big enough to force Google's hand.

I thought I told you to stay away from Nokia related articles.. You're lucky this time it actually is iDroid related.. Oh well, I'm sure I'll see you on every WP related article today professing your love for it as usual.. Sad..

This is not Microsoft at all.. This is strait up Nokia... And it's all about awareness.. Just because Google is dumb doesn't mean that others have to be as well...
