A number of apps I did have are now no longer available 'in my country'; with the Play store largely off limits, moving to another OS was an easier decision; both Apple's and MS's app stores either 'just work' or can easily be got working.

The Nokia is very slick too, not just compared to the Note, but even compared to the S4!! easily swapping between screens/apps quicker.

I know if I'd spent much longer with Google Now I'd be missing it, but no point sticking with an OS that's dropping support and features.
Well that's your opinion. It contradicts mine almost 100%. And one of my daughters has a Windows Phone 8 Nokia 820, so I am not talking blind on one side of this debate.
