The OS was programmed by disgruntled part time under paid under privileged and potentially blind programmers from South Bombay who apparently do not understand how a modern phone work with respect to ...turn it sideways and have the key board expand! OMG NO SHIT! Really! Expand! you know what won't expand.....my love for windows phones...you know what will expand...my hate of windows phone and that skinny little shit who programmed it....but I’ll feel much better when I grab him by his skinny little ankles when he's eating is lunch time chicken tika and ravage the MS office using him as a battle ax and killing all his other skinny friends!

4. You are kidding me right.....like at the AT&T store you want me to sit there for like hours playing with the phone! Like check out phone and install botty call programs like plenty of fish and okcupid?
I support every phone on the market being in IT and my favorite is anything with the Android OS. But I do not bash others due to any short commings. Every phone has pros and cons. This is what testing is for to make sure it has more pros to you. Every phone will have something you hate. So yea! Test it! That's what the store is for. Go in and test it. Play with it for a while. Go in with a list of knowing what you care most in the phone and go test those things. Buying things on a whim then complaining on how it works is just stupid.

Personally the Windows phones are great. They provide a lot for the money. If they are too complicated to use for you then go buy an Apple product. Anything Apple makes is for the simple minded.

You can root and mess with an iPhone you know. The only difference is that it is more difficult. Apple makes sure you have enough knowledge before you go tweaking your phone. They made it so stupid and average people can't break it, which is why it works so well for those stupid and average people. For smart savvy people there are more options than stock.

Windows phones will help you expand and explore the language center of your brain. You will find new and innovative ways of saying "WTF!" every other day!

like..when you use the Windows facebook app....so like when i turn my phone sideways the app won't respond...WTF!

Or...you know i really want a compass app....what do you mean not supported by Windows!....FTW!

Don’t get me wrong, it has like 25gigs of memory which you will never fill up because there are no apps to fill it with!
Maybe you can fill it with heaps and heaps of porn?

bottom line is
when I buy an apple product I know I am getting several years worth of upgrades
with android that is not the case
you can't just plug your phone into your computer and receive updates

anyone here bought an android phone with gingerbread and is now running jelly bean?

I thought not

I've used both, and iOS is much better than android

of course a jailbroken iOS is the best OS out there, but that's not a fair statement because most people can't jailbreak etc

I've a had windows based phone for roughly 5 years. I loved windows mobile for all the custom roms and capabilities minus the stability of windows mobile. Not a huge fan of windows phones, but i only use my phone for business... I like office, a few apps, the lumia 900 camera has a relatively good camera, i receive my e-mails from multiple accounts, internet, its quick, i can watch netflix, group sms, gps, weather, adobe reader...

Maybe I'm missing something, I'm not really what else you want from a phone...

Shah, go get a Galaxy, man. You'll be glad you did.


Grieverr - you don't really get sarcasm do you? Your post is probably the second funniest post given the legitimacy you applied to mlambert890's post.

Shah's so far are the best though.

I have the 920 been using for about 6 months now. I do like it, and think the interface especially the home screen is fantastic. But my complaints are with the hardware. The speakers on mine have crapped out (don't know why, moisture maybe), the aux jack is no longer clear sounding, the little sensor so the screen turns off when your on the phone is so clouded with dust that it no longer works, and I have to reset it probably once a week. But as far as the construction of it I have to say its good. Still looks brand new on the outside with the exception of a few scratches.

Would I buy again? Maybe, apps are limited, and it doesn't seem to be improving. We'll see what happens

On the email thing. I have an iphone for work and the lumia 900 is my personal. I have my email setup on each. I get my email on the iphone at least a minute or more earlier then the windows phone.
internet- they are about the same. Iphone keeps the buttons for boomarks and sharing right there. Windows you have to press the setting button on the bottom to bring those options up.
gps- never works on my windows phone, it can never find where i am.
Texting- recently I get 90% of my texts. Other ones never come through.
Apps- are horrible, the market is horrible. No one can argue this.

The problems I have with the phone, I go into ATT to show them and they don't see a problem. I have both phones like I said. I use my work phone alot more.

Nexus 4, Samsung S4, HTC One, iPhone 5. Pick any one of these phones and you will love the experience for sure.

Been using a Nexus 4 since Nov when it launched. I've had pretty much all the features of iOS since i got my phone. Been getting updated to the newest OS every time they are released. Android 4.2.2 is awesome

I understand that most Android phones are not as good for getting updates, but that is why the Nexus lineup exists. If you want a good stock android experience and all the updates right away, you get a Nexus phone/tablet.
