For work I have had an HTC 8x for dev work for the last 2 years. Problem was is that WP8 and the app store was severally lacking in terms of features and apps. Now that WP8.1 update 1 has hit, this phone is outstanding. It can really hold its own against the iPhone.
There are a few things I notice though that still annoy me:
1. Why does spotify make their apps free on iOS and Android but require a premium account for WP?
2. Why does the lock screen still only allow for 1 app to get a detailed status?
