"Go for it!"

Im in love with this device. First of all, I am not gonna conmpare the OS with other OS, just gonna review WP8 and Nokia L920! The simplicity and ease of the OS combined with the excellent (maybe the best in terms of quality) hardware of the phone, the NL920 can certainly ride along with the market rulers (Iphone 5 and GS3)!!
Even though the WP8 has a lot of room for improvement in terms of the flexibility and options for users, the OS is silky smoth and fast. I am in complete love with this OS. As far is practicality and every day use for an average working individual is concerned, I think WP* is better than Android (wont comment on IOS since I hv never used it). Everything is so integrated and fluidic. But for a techie (or most of the youth today) who lives inside their phone, the OS may seem a bit too simple. The lack of apps might be visible to super tech guys out there but for a average or above average user, all essential apps are present (or atleast a adjustable equivalent). Notie how all reviews constantly name the same 2 or 3 apps while they point out the WP8 lack of apps. But for some of the apps avaialble, te quality can be improved a lot.
The phone as such is amazing! Even after 2 months with the phone, I cannot stop admiring the phone! It is just so beautiful and elegant! The camera, the display, the design, the feel and look is just top notch! Most of the reviews complain about the weight of the phone which was not the case for me. Granted it was heavy when I picked it up first since my previous phone was just 112 gms but it became negligible after a few hours of carrying the phone around. I personally feel the sheer size and sleekness of big display phones like Galaxy Note 2 is more uncomfortable than the weight of NL920. But thats just me! As for the battery, the phone can get through the day but it could have been better but compared to the smartohone market, the battery is above average!
The Nokia apps are the best! I previously used google apps but I think the Nokia apps are at par or some of them, even better than google apps. The offline usage of Nokia maps, Nokia music are some of the apps that impressed me.
I truly believe that NL920 and WP8 has the potential to create and sustain a market of its own. All that Nokia and MS have to do is listen to user feedbacks and roll out solutions really fast if they wanna compete with Android or IOS (Easir said that done but...). Also, they can do a much better job at marketing /advertising, They have increase their efforts and more importantly, focus their efforts to where it actually counts!
