Ok So  I was a huge Android fanboy all my adloscent life and still. but i feel that i dont really use all the potential of my N5. I dont game much (thats why we have PCs) mostly browsing googling and social media.
Does anybody have experience from android to Windows ?
is the 1020/1520 worth shifting from a N5?
Please share your thoughts and experiences.
(BTW the camera is something i use all the time (taking pics of notes and lectures and sometimes instagram)
Thanks!! (Y) (Y) (Y)

if you are switching, you are better off with an iphone.

Don't get the 1020, the 1520 or the 1320 would be better. :)

Sorry Sachi911 I just don't see myself as an Apple guy. I despise them for their look premium pay premium attitute.
As for NilFBosh; was thinking the same. The 1520 is 69k and has monster specs with an awesome cam
My question is how will the transition be? what will i miss? What will i love?

WP is much more smoother and faster than Andriod overall (for obvious reasons) and on the downside WP doesn't have that many apps.

And also, the Lumia 1520 is much bigger than the N5, it won't easily fit in your pockets!

The only thing you'll miss is the vast amount of apps and a bit of the customization freedom. But WP, as said above, is just so freaking smooth and fluid. And that camera is a beast (Y) it easily compensates for the lack of apps and customization :)

Only the apps. WP 8.1 will give you all the customization you need.

Wait till Android L get properly released in the fall, besides after Jelly Bean and KK most of  those lag\not smooth issues are fixed on Android. I am not talking about Samsungs touchpizz crap version here, I am talking about pure aosp or some light skinned fork from like Sony.

I totally get you bro. My nexus 5 is currently running android L and I love it.
but the thing i use mostly is the camera (90% of my camera roll is uni related)
then social networking and browsing
I think its useless having all android awesomeness the nexus 5 will offer me unless I can utilize it. I'd rather enjoy the "NOT SO AWESOME" WP8.1 with a great camera
I think the AppGap is the only issue with WP8.1
Thank for your feedback!
Much appriciated!

the real upside of ditching the N5 for a lumia would be the cam.. Especially the front cam considering with the current drivers N5 rear camera is really good.. Being using my N5 for like 6 months now.
