Most of the apps in android are not much usefull.. But in lumia most apps r usefull & access time is greater. I bet no one likes to use android after using lumia try it then believe it..
Lumia 820 is better than all in its class..
Everything in lumia is better yet people go for grand coz of apps they dont even use .....good choice :)
well if someone is spending now he must invest in lumia as it supports 4g ...everybody must consider 4G in mind as it will come soon then again you will think of buy new phone
no lumia 820 is better than grand.....
galaxy grand is better .itz so simple to notice it
