Need some advice: WP7.8 vs WP8?
I'm considering getting a new WP device by the end of this year (probably Nokia Lumia 925). I've been using a WP7.8 device for 2 years (HTC Radar), and it basically does everything I need it to do, and does it fairly well (mostly OneNote, IE, weather, navigation, camera, news, mail, facebook, music - no gaming, no media consumption besides music)
So the only reason for me to get a new WP8 device would be general improvements over WP7.8 devices (improvements in UI, features, improved camera capabilities, etc.), not so much the improved app availability.
To those of you who have used both 7.8 and 8: How much of a difference do the many small improvements in 8 over 7.8 make regarding general usability and functionality? And do you think that to a non-app-junkie like me the greater availability of apps for WP8 compared to 7.8 would be a considerable benefit?
(I should add that I live in Austria, Europe, so please consider that some of the services availiable for WP8, such as location-based services, might not work as well as in the US)
Thanks for your help!
