    I've seen a few 928s go for about $150 around my area...so very tempted to pick one up.

    Not an app whore here either, I keep on the device what I use nearly daily and nothing else, use my device mostly for loading up shows/movies for when I'm on the go, texting, directions/maps, random google (i guess now bing) searches for answers to things I need to know etc.

    My biggest complaint about Android was how some apps that are cross platform just function poorly on my droid. App looks good on iOS but looks or works terrible on android OS. It's good to know the cross platform apps I use a lot such as ebay are good to go on WP8.

    That's a lot of good info, especially regarding the Lumia line...I was not aware...I could go for a 928 or the icon but I'm really liking the look and feel of the 8X. I'll have to give that some thought as support is important.

    I did hear about 8.1 and cortana so that will be nice. IT seems as if WP has come a long way so I think it's time to feel that OS out for a bit. Thanks again for the info.
    If anyone has anything else to add, pros or cons, let me know.

    HERE Maps, HERE Drive + (Navigation apps) and Local Scout (uses camera to look around whats near you--malls, restaurants etc) on WP8 are AWESOME.

    I like the speed alerts when using HERE Drive+. You can turn them off or customize them to alert you when you're going over the speed limit or 5, 10 etc miles over it. I also like the ability to download State specific maps and not need to turn on GPS to get directions to places. I like the navigation features with these apps (HERE). You can do some very cool things with them.

    You won't get turn-by-turn directions mind you but you'll get the route.

    I heard you can download the maps for offline usage so that's a plus provided it's a true statement.
