I made the switch for the entire family to Nokia Lumia phones two months ago and we love them. We have found a couple of apps such as XMRadio that are not in the app store but the stuff we need and many of our wants are covered. True the app store is smaller but let be real how many different fart tracking apps do you need. About 60% of the iOS and Android market are redundant. I have found that personally I like the Nokia mapping program better, even allows for voices to be altered for turn by turn directions. Right now mine is a female with British accent and idioms.
As for the phones I love the Nokia cameras, best I have seen on a phone so far. Not a big fan of not being able to remove the battery but then I have not needed to. My Android phones all needed a reboot at least once a week and sometimes need a hard reboot meaning the battery had to come out. ALL of my Windows phones have not needed a single reboot in 2 months.
I have both the 920 and the 925 so I can compare those. The 920 is thicker and heavier, be SURE to get a thin grip case for it. The plastic surface is durable but slick. The 920 has two features the 925 lacks, the 920 comes in a 32 gig model, the one I have. It also out of the box can work with induction charging. The 925 requires a hardware back to give induction and comes with only 16 gig. This is not as big a deal as I thought however. Both phones can be set to auto upload all pics taken to a Skydrive account, this means you can clean the pics off the phone often but still have quick and easy access. The 925 is thinner and sleeker, also has a slightly better camera but the general performance is about the same.
At the end of the day I can tell you an Android of iOS phone now feel like a toy to me. Oh sure I play games on my Windows Phone but the phone feels more polished and the OS is smoother and quicker. Really surprising that my phones hardware is technologically inferior to the newer Samsung and Apple products and yet does everything faster and smoother.
Now this is all my personal experience and phones today are really very much about personal needs and preferences. However my own experience has convinced me that right now a Windows Phone is the perfect choice for me.
