    I do not know people how could claim that windows phones are better than iPhone, I bought Lumia920 and I Thought I will find something awesome, amazing, but it is crap with the way you see the home screen, too much annoying bottoms, crap keyboard, and very ugly store in its APP’s, how could you people compare you self to the iPhone, even Android is better than yours.

    I wish if you could fix all the shits you have inside from keyboard, to the home screen, fixing your app store to have more reliable apps, and notice that 90% of your apps are not free which is sucks too.

    For windows, as all your windows update when we updating it we start facing problems, and nothing new except that you are getting more info from our devices. Please make sure when you update the windows either for phones or PC’s make something cool that people would appreciated.

    Let us be proud of windows and why we bought.

    Waiting for that.
