My friend said Windows Phone is worthless than Android, it has ugly UI, most apps on Marketplace was paid, easily bricked, and other. Meanwhile Android according to my friend it has best UI, much free apps on store, and popular means good.
I hate their opinion because they only looking at appearance, not at function. They dissimulation use an Android phone with very nice UI but they doesn't understand how to use them.
Please how to tell the WP advantage to my noobish friend because I want to buy Lumia 625 (or not 620) but I am worry if it was hurting relationship to my friend.
Sorry for my bad English, I can't thinking them so good.

If you want a Windows Phone, and a Windows Phone is useful to you, why does it matter what your friend thinks?
If this person is a true friend, he/she will respect you for who you are, not what phone you own.

The beauty/ugly is subjective. I like minimalist Modern/Metro UI more than that of Android. It's an opinion just like how the hardware look. I like the beauty of back of HTC One the most. I like overall Xperia look the most. The 920 is not the best looking phone out there but to my liking, it look pretty good.
The app in google play and in cydia store are more useful and free but that come with security flaws. I would prefer a more secure system anytime.

In your situation I would be thinking more about a friend-upgrade rather than a phone-upgrade (just kidding).
The user interface's of Android and its apps are an inconsistent, nervous mess. Every app looks and feels different. WP's user interface is a strength, but you'll never know or understand this without having used it first. Images on the web don't do it justice.
Woz: Windows Phone is 'beautiful,' Android 'no contest,' still loves iPhone, ask again tomorrow
Lets keep it real. There is an enthusiast market that appreciates the power of Android, but 80% of Android's success it owes to being cheap.

If you want a Windows Phone, get a Windows Phone. Half of my friends have iPhones or Android phones and that never stopped me from getting a Windows Phone. His knowledge of WP is WAYYYYY off. Maybe you should teach him a thing or two about WP. My friends are always surprised when I show them some of the features my phone has. They are like "Wow that's cool!" or "Can I get that app?" lol.

There some good apps that are paid and free.
I own a 512MB device, and it's worth it. 99% of apps are usable with the 512MB devices on the WP store, they are a great device and do their job as well as the 920/925/928 and 1020! :)Proud owner of a Nokia Lumia 520 in Cyan and a HTC 7 Mozart! I have developed one app!

this is not like Android, where pplz are happy to have top games running buggy and laggy on their cheap phone!
no one should buy a budget phone expecting it to run each and every app/game!
but i do recommend 620/625 if you're on a tight budget...my 620 has never failed me!

Never depend on other's opinions. Go search/try yourself to see if wp is a worhless OS.
I changed to wp8 mostly because of Nokia. I havent a Nokia phone since the beast E71 and i had enough with those samsung and sony devices. But in the end, wp is a well made, smooth os that cover most of my needs, not a single crash after 3 weeks of heavy use. Everything runs great (except fb notifications which i dont care tbh). There are some things that missing, and i hope that MS eventually will add them.
