Well I just come from my phone dealer, I go there to replace my iPhone 4s. I first look at the iPhone 5 and I was not impress at all, same thing just a little bit bigger. Then look at the Samsung ATIV S and the Galaxy Note II, I choose the Note II and here why;
I considerate myself a Windows 8 Power User, I use it from the start, and this I think don't help to sell a Windows 8 phone, I already try about all the Metro apps that can interest me, and no one interest me that much. I think MS make a mistake to force the Metro to Windows 8 Desktop users, instead of pushing the phones sales, it make us go away from it. Honestly I will have probably get the 8 phones if I have not try the apps on the PC first. I pass 1 hour to ask myself, what the 8 phone can do more , and I found nothing. All true the tiles look way better on the phone than a desktop, the dynamic background of the Android is simply too much amazing.
So Microsoft, why a guy who are using Windows 8 since over a year, and don't have to much complain about it, is not even purchasing one of your phones ? You have to return to the drawing board, something is missing for sure.
