GDR3 update found on 15% of Windows Phone models

The update also includes an update to the Data Sense data usage monitoring application, which restricts background data when roaming. This prevents an app running in the background from eating you out of house and home once you stray from the price protection of your carrier's territory. In addition, after the update, the 3G and Wi-Fi icons show when data is transmitted.
Another interesting tidbit of information coming from Mendelevich reveals that the top 12 Windows Phone handsets in use are all Nokia Lumia models. Anyone surprised?
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

I hope my Lumia 620 will get GDR3+Lumia Black before February. There's some annoying bugs in the Amber firmware, and I will get mad if the new update cannot solve that problem.

My belief is every phone is smooth. Just that people are using them wrong. (I don't blame them though)

Then you're not really doing an apples to apples comparison, you're using first party products from the other companies and using 3rd party stuff for droid. Use a nexus 5 and you will never go back to the other two again.

I want to buy nokia but something(like lack of apps and not able to play some videos) stops me from buying it.

The app argument is a common misconception. Read this article. It should convince you that apps are not an issue: http://www.phonearena.com/news
As for videos, Windows Phone is able to play practically any video format. Haven't run into any problems so far with my Lumia 920. Hope that this clears the confusion. :)
