There is lack of Windows Apps in comparison to Android

This has limited access but something is better than nothing !

http://www.windowsphone.com/en-in/store/app/transfer-my-data/dc08943b-7b3d-4ee5-aa3c-30f1a826af02
Transfer my Data is a quick and easy way of copying contacts from almost any phone (Symbian, Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and others) to your new Windows Phone using Bluetooth. Some phones may also be capable of transferring text messages and pictures, including many Nokia phones. Transfer my Data copies all your contacts into the Windows Phone People Hub, from where it’s easy to call, mail, chat or follow friends on your favourite social network. On supported phones, contacts can also be exported to and imported from an SD card.

Task Manager - Microsoft Community

Long-Hold BACK button.
Hold down the back arrow untill the task manager comes up.
There is no way to kill a app from the task manager.
But if you keep hitting the back arrow it will exit all apps in the task manager.

When you leave an app, it is suspended. If you pause music, it is suspended.
Some apps can periodically run background tasks for about half a minute.
You can find these in Settings>swipe left to get to "applications">Background tasks.

Akruto Sync
As You Sync contacts, calendar etc in Android by Kies.
Similarly Windows Phone 8 does same thing by a software called Akruto Sync.
If you don't want anything to do with cloud services,
this bit of software lets you sync directly (wireless or USB) with your PC.

Tethering Windows Phones Via USB cable-Not wifi hot-spot
Most people using Windows phones has this problem of not having a feature to use internet connection of mobile phone without making a wifi hot spot. Here i am bringing you a simple way of doing that. This is also very important for the branded phone buyers where these phones are not supported for the wifi hot spot. As an example if you buy a phone with AT & T or Verizon unlimited data plans these phones are not supported wifi hot spot feature. When you select the internet sharing it will say ' Internet sharing isn't currently allowed'. So the option i am bringing you is very simple & easy to understand.
First dial one of the following & then you see the diag mode & enable it.

##634#

##MFG#

##3424#
##DIAG#


when you enable the diag mode some of the phones will ask to restart. let it happen, it is normal. & for some phones diag mode is disabled & you have to click it two three times & wait for the until it ask for the restart.
Then for the some of the phones you have to dial the following code & then it will show you three modes as follows. Some phones will say it occurred a problem, do not worry. it is normal.
*#7284# -dialing code- then you will get following three steps.

Zune sync
Modem, Tethered call
Modem, USB Diag

Then select the second one, then it will ask for restart, let it happen.

Ok now you have almost done.
Plug your device to the PC using USB cable, it will ask for the driver installation. Please make sure your PC is connected to the internet while you are doing this as it will search for the drivers software for installation. If it says not found trouble shoot through the internet. Do not worry if it gets the modem drivers installed correctly, no need the correct driver installation of the other devices of your phone.

Ok this is the last step of everything. Disconnect your internet connection & do the following.

Go to Start---> Devices & Printers ---> select your windows phone (if drivers not installed correctly this will be under Unspecified Category as Composite device) Right click on that Composite device, on the top it will show you 'Modem settings ---> Modem settings ----> Then you will get a window of three or more tabs select the Modem tab ---> Then select the modem of your windows phone out of the modems shown in the list.-----> click properties ----> Then you will get another window of " (your phone brand) USB Modem properties, select the Diagnostics Tab, then select the "Query Modem" button. Msg will appear as " Communication with modem, this will take few seconds" wait, you will get a list under the second space of that tab with two parts named command & response.

Now you have the last step of the work.

Go to Network & sharing center ---> Set up a new connection or network ---> Set up a dial-up connection ---> Modem of your PC ( Now it will ask "which modem you want to use? " & will show your device modem in the modem list)-----> Then enter the dial up code of the your ISP (this is the same code what you dial when you are using the USB dongle. example- in Sri Lanka *99#)
Now you will see the work is running giving you number of messages ( Register on your network etc...) & finally you will be asked to browse.

Now browse it. You have done what you need. Please leave a comment & like for the post. Do not forget it. That is what all I want.

This is a great option for the Verizon HTC 8X owners to share there internet connection with the PC. Cheers you all. Good luck & be happy with your smart phone.

SD Card has even more restrictions. You can not access images, video and document files. You cannot access any files not registered with Pocket File Manager.

Please be informed! Trial version is only for preview. FTP Server in trial mode won’t allow you to work with files or folders. Advanced file operations, send by Bluetooth also not available. Consider buying full version

Thankyou! :)
I had downloaded some 20games and apps and put in the SD card. Only ~5-6 are not working, but still, I am confused why?!
Regarding phone, a close friend got it..from Distt. Centre Janakpuri..Rs. 8700..there was no outlet selling for less than 8500.
Enquired at some other places also, nowhere it is available for ~8K.

No, this Limitation is that after installing the file explorer we cannot access some parts of file system. That is not the issue here.

And yeah after logging in also there is no place to comment/write review (or my eyes cannot find!!)
