That's not really true, honestly. I have an 8X, and I've found a more than adequate app (often third party) for everything I need. Youtube, Pandora, Google maps, Skype, facebook, etc. I haven't been missing a single thing except for Twitch TV, which isn't even very optimized on Android.
There are less games compared to my last phone (Android), but Wordament is really good, and cross platform.

I love the if you don't have 600,000 apps you must be missing out on something. Windows Phone has 150,000+ apps and growing. How many variations of flashlight and fart apps does one really need?
Windows Phone is getting the last few top apps that were missing. Its pretty much down to the OS ability and supporting eco system that differentiate a Windows Phone from an Android since they are practically on the same hardware. There have been enough Windows Phone sales that every top developer should be on board with thier app if not its an opportunity for someone else to claim their top spot in a new and growing eco system.
Since I haven't ever had to reboot my Windows Phone in the near 2 years Ive owned it and its been a solid experience I'm sticking with Windows Phone. Its still snappy and responsive. I just want a camera upgrade but Ill take a dual or even quad core by the time my contract is up for renewal soon enough. Most likely whatever is going to be the replacement to the Nokia 920.

problem is that in some countries you cannot buy from the market for instance my country malta is excluded and i can only install free software, this is not an issue on either android or itunes. Overall Im still satisfied with my lumia 710 running wp7.8 since the interface is gorgeous, and the essential apps like browser/office/cammera/multimedia are builtin
