    I use the Apple world for a lot of things, but I started to use my Lumia 822 when the Amber update turned on the FM transmitter. Since I am a bit of a gadget nomad when it comes to electronics, I assumed I would be done with it in a week.

    However, I discovered something odd. The lumia pushes my mail to my phone faster than my ipads do. I will be sitting at my desk on my ipad and my phone will buzz and invariably my lumia is getting my mail before my ipad. Both gmail and yahoo.

    I found that extremely odd. If anyone can explain why, I'd love to know. I happens both on wifi and on Verizon lite.

    Also, I find texting on the lumia easier, as it tends to come up with the next word that I am going to text before I even start the word. I guess it must somehow remember my texts and give me a list of possible words.

    Anyway, while the 5C and 5S do look attractive, I may old off for a while and play nice with my Lumia.

    I have the 820, and I think it's the best phone! High end internals, small size, and all of the bells and whistles.

    Sorry, don't use it for photos but I'd suspect the photos are decent. The screen on this is very sharp and I believe the Amber update made some improvements to the camera.

    I had the 822 before switching to the 8X. I love the way the 822 screen can be read easily in bright sunlight.

    I have the 520. These phones are great, definitely. Here's a shot from that. I only cropped it in Preview.
