So did you get a free wireless charging pad or anything?

I am trying to have a real reason to buy it without thinking (my s3 has this)

There's no fluidity with Android, it's hard to describe but there isn't the feel that it's polished. Especially when you have Samsung's Touchwiz on top of Android and I'm not a fan of Sense UI either.

I still don't have Jellybean then they release 4.2, awesome. The update model is broken, and is evident when you still see the majority of Android versions out there still running old versions

Why do I need to buy a Nexus device in order to receive the latest updates in a timely manner? The nexus devices are often spec'd slightly under the top end phones as the manufactures clearly don't want these nexus devices competing with their own.

There's also a slight risk that an app I download might contain malware due to Google's lax, probably less no now, app approval process

Lastly, I just want to try something new. I came from iOS to Android and figure I'll give Windows 8 a go, and the Nokia Lumia 920 looks great

I am feeling the same way but then i think of the money i spent on apps for android but will still have a nexus 7.
1 thing that is stopping me getting one *now* is that i think i will miss the LED light on my S3 that tells me i have a message/email/some other thing.
I have set it up so text messages have a different colour than emails and its handy if you are away from your phone and come back you can see you have a message waiting.

You mirror my current thoughts with Android very closely. Having my One X has shown me that iPhones are not the be all and end all of smartphones, and there are areas where Apple are really starting to lag. I was initially incredibly enthusiastic about my new phone, but the more time I spend with it, the more the rough edges start to show. I still appreciate the flexibility that Android brings to the table, but would love to see more uniformity and overall reliability to the platform.

I'm not done with Android as such, and the One X is still good enough to be my primary phone (partly helped by my iPhone 4 having an unresponsive home button, I must admit). But of all the devices on the market at the moment, the new Windows Phones (especially the Lumia 920) have me intrigued the most. But I won't be in the market for a phone upgrade for quite a while, so I'm settling for admiring from afar. Its probably better that way. There's no chance for my expectations to be dashed if I never actually get to play with one :-)

Clove.co.uk has White, Black and Red units in stock now of Lumia 920. Not many units left and they are selling them like hotcakes.




Do whatever you want to do man.
