The lights are on
I have a Windows phone and I like it a lot. That being said, the App Store is abysmal. I don't even have access to some of the most popular like Instegram, Yahoo fantasy sports... What I love about it though is the UI is great and the XBOX integration. I can easy check which friends are online and message them from my phone. Smartglass comes standard and I use it mostly for typing things in when needed on the 360. I really like how a lot of the games for the phone are XBOX Live games so they have achievements which count toward your overall score. Each game is only 200 points but most are easy to complete which helps your achievement percentage. I have the Lumia 822 for Verizon. The camera takes good photos and videos. I love the Kids corner also, my 21 month old loves to watch videos on it and I don't have to worry about her doing anything to my apps or buying something. I have had an Android phone before and I like my WP8 much much more. The reason the poor App Store does not bother me is because I also have an iPod and iPad which allows me to get any app on those.
