pathetic mobile. Truly; ONLY design is good. If you really wanna go for windows, go for Lumia 535(lower budget) or lumia 730/35(mid range)

Nokia hardware is crap :( Wifi and 3G signal is much better on HTC 8S. Windows 8 and 8.1 is much stable on HTC. HTC is better quality then Nokia. My next phone will be HTC one M8 Winows 8.
