This is a thread that asks you what will make you switch from Nokia to another Windows Phone manufacturer. I love Nokia, and I'm rocking an amazing yellow 920 which I love, but if Samsung or HTC make a windows phone that blows Nokia away, I will probably switch. Post away!!

In reality, probably nothing for a while. It seems that Nokia has got the reigns for Windows Phone. Until more market share is gained, it will be considered an afterthought by other manufacturers.
Saying that, it really wouldn't take much at this point. After the hardware issues I've had with my 900's and 920 it wouldn't take much for me to seriously consider another manufacturer. On the other hand, I don't see a manufacturer coming along at any time soon that will invest what Nokia has invested into Windows Phone.

If Samsung made the Ativ SII with all the features that the SIV has (except for 1080p and quad core, as WP doesn't support it as of now), and actually market it and release it on AT&T, I would consider it.

It would probably take a lot. I do not like HTC's hardware, whether Windows Phone or Android. The only vendor I like other than Nokia is Samsung, but Samsung does not offer much in the way of Windows Phone devices.

Honestly I won't be switching anytime soon. I might have to get an iphone for work because I need one freaking app! (a security camera app) but I would probably be a baller and just carry two phones. (one with a sim card).
I don't think there is a better choice right now than Nokia, mostly because of how dedicated they are. The #1 thing that would make me switch is if they ever stopped developing Windows Phone's.
I still believe that the Lumia 920 is the best phone on the market. We just need those last few apps....

If they give me any trouble repairing the 822 I bought my mom that did the volume sticking and then lightning bolt/gears then I'll quit them despite looking forward to the 928. Verizon store told her that her warranty was invalidated by a small ding on one edge, so she's mailing it to me. So yeah, hopefully Nokia takes care of us. :)

Don't think I'd ever switch from Nokia because of the app exclusivity. I may get other non-Nokia WP devices, but that would be for s&gs, not as my primary WP device.
