When Cortana tells you that. It must be nice to hear, when you are completely surrounded by a sea of Android and iOS users.

That's about as dumb as a spokesperson for Marlboro cigarettes telling you that smoking is good for you.

If it was all that laggy, WP should catch up no? Doesn't look like it in the next few years anyways.

Not only has WP caught up it is the industry leading OS. Android and iOS look up to WP design language wise.

Join one of his Hangouts, IF, you can. Did Google bother making one for WP? Can't see why really though, not like many use it.

I completely disagree with you and I am by no means a fanboy, I have used all the platforms, and while I was at the club with a group of friends I took my nokia lumia Icon, and everybody started asking me how come my phone can take better pictures than theirs, and I explained that is the strenght of windows phonr, yes I have used the S5, note 3, nexus 5 I mean you name it all high end android phones, as well as the iphones, but windows phone is unique since it is not just a grid of icons. LIve tiles gives it personality, and well with 8.1 a lot of things were fixed, notification center added, as well as cortana which for beta performs great, is the mixture of siris personality with google now.

Strength of "Nokia PureView" not WP

That is just ignorance. WP is the trendsetting OS by itself it made Android and iOS go flat and that was without Nokia in the picture. Everytime you look at your device remeber WP influenced the way it looks

And you call me a troll? your statement above is completely ignorant and has no validity whatsoever. Android is a complex operating system, not complicated one. The user interface is extremely intuitive and easy to navigate. More than 80% of the global smartphone market run android and have no issues using it. If you find it complicated than I think you're just admitting you're in lower 20th percentile of all smartphone users when accounting for intelligence.

Why not go to apps and games and fully loaded feautres than no apps and games and less speced 3series Bmw vs 7series Bmw

WP has apps and games. And plenty of them. The app argument is so misused because the people who makes it really have no idea of the app situation on WP. It isn't as bleak as they want it to be and the features are plentiful on their own. They don't need every laggy bell and whistle to be a selling point for their phone. I've used Android for 3 years, and after a point. I stopped caring. I rooted, flashed, hacked, themed, customized and messed with my OS down to a T and after a while, it just got old and cumbersome. Oh, and yeah, the entire process of having to restart my phone at least once a day wasn't pretty, either, lol. And before you pretend that isn't an issue - it is. People I know with Nexus 4/5, Galaxies, Notes and Ones, are doing this. How do I know? Because I see them doing it, LOL. My red 1520 turns heads. The quality of my photos are superior. When people see my screen (not just the size), they can't believe how awesome the UI looks. I'm running the 8.1 preview, and the simple yet gorgeous homescreen makes Lagdroid devices look ugly like IOS. You wanna be common? Go right on ahead. But don't try to bring people down to your level. Too many people there. That was a burn, btw.

I bought a WP because it was Nokia. I use an iPad and a Moto Tab too. However, I detest single cell amoebas that worship particular operating systems and their manufacturers. I detest even more those said companies that commit deceitful actions, especially ones that defraud investors and cost thousands of people good jobs. Figure it out.

I use a Lumia 1520 as my driver. I use an iPad for my tablet. And I have a Nexus 7 that I bought because it was cheap and I thought why not. Was an Android user prior to going WP. I am versed across all platforms. The problem with Android users specifically is that they push their OS on everyone like it's the best thing since sliced bread. Take a look at Arte here and his harping of Android. It's no worse than the iOS fanboys of the earlier generation. If they don't like WP, why go into an WP article? Simple - to troll people with their typical "We did it first." or "We can do X and you can't" As for companies, well, that's corporations for you. I've worked for a number of them, and that is nothing new.

Android phones and WIndows phones have the same philosophy behind them (lockscreen, homescreen, app menu, voice assistant, task switcher, notification centre). The only reason to pick a WP over android is hardware, or if you like the art behind consistency or you like the flat design of WP not because it has no lag (Pure android has no lag either). So no android isn't complicated nor does it lag substantially android just gives you the basics and if you choose to do more then power to you.
