SAVE YOUR SELF! Do not get a windows phone.

OK this is the second worst decision i have ever made in my life.
The first was buying my condo because my x wife thought it was cute!
The second is getting a windows phone!
What can i say about this phone? HUM......(Warning politically incorrect rant)...when i get my hands on the skinny west Asian programmer from South Bombay who freaking wrote the programming of this phone I’m going to grab him by his skinny ankles and beat him to death on a cow! Cow won't mind.
(Politically incorrect rant over)

My god what a POS phone!
I mean really! I thought Nokia were known for producing solid phone with solid programming and well.......i was wrong.
Apps...what apps...and the apps that are there suck blow and then suck some more! you should see the windows app for facebook...using the windows app for facebook is like arguing (warning politically incorrect rant) with a fucking autistic kid about the meaning of life! (Politically incorrect rant over)

The long and short of it is this. The phone looks really sexy when it’s off…looks like a sexy chocolate bar of sweet sweet loving and goodness….but when you turn on it on….you are transported back to 2002 when the first smart phones showed up. It’s ugly, it’s stupid and it’s just downright garbage!

Save your money do not buy this phone! Also you may want to sell your windows stocks as well….because when Droid starts making OS’s for lap tops ha ha fuck you windows!

I fixed that for you.


On a side note just get an iPhone. There is a reason why they are so popular.

I had a samsung phone with windows 6.5 and it was such a POS. I vowed to never again get another windows phone and I will never even bother trying. Android is great!

i had a nokia 920, worst phone ive used in a while

so many issues:
- lower left screen was creaky
- wireless charging didnt work half the time (woke up in the morning just to see the phone battery at less than 50%
- reception was always terrible, others couldnt hear me, internet always cut off
- half assed battery

Its so bad that i couldn't sell it because i felt so bad for the next owner. my girlfriends using it as her car music player.

bought a galaxy s4 the other day, excellent phone, would recommend

This is like buying a new car the first year it's out. Never do that... There's on-paper specs and there's hands-on experience. Not the same thing.

This is a great thread. I have the nokia lumia 900. When it first came out. Biggest piece of junk ever! It randomly freezes or does the push to talk screen. The marketplace has no apps anyone cares about. The only thing I can say that's good (or bad to me) is it is a tuff phone. I've dropped it all over and it doesn't break. Same can't be said about my wifes iphone. But her's works when she needs it.
I seriously had an emergency one time and was trying to call someone and it took me 5 minutes of messing with the phone and restarting it to get the call out.

Cue 1200 pages of Android and IOS fanboy ranting and raving and pissing and moaning complete with "proof", "point/counterpoint", and more bullshit upon which a trillion pages have already been wasted. LOL

Ive been using smartphones since literally day one, and before that "PDA"s in all of their various forms.

Personally I dont find the latest Windows Phones to be so bad at all and have some friends who swear by them. Different strokes...

OP, congrats on flaming MSFT. Thats not something you hear too often

Im sure they'll be out of business just as soon as those Android laptops we all cant wait for come flooding out.

BTW, you an already get what would essentially be an "Android laptop". Just get an Asus Transformer. I had one and unloaded it.

This in a nutshell.

But don't see why you unloaded your Asus. Those are pretty nice machines. There was a bad batch or two, but for the most part very reliable.

To the OP. Bad phone or just hate the lay out? Bad phone replace it with a new one. It happens from time to time. Hate the layout and how it functions then you did a piss poor job testing it before you bought it.

Maybe you don't play video games. They're getting killed ever since the Xbox One announcement!

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

1. I bought it because my old phone fell off my kitchen counter top and broke...yeah all of 4ft

2. The phone is freaking sexy piece of black choate wrapped in sexiness!

3. (This part is not PC…you may not want to read this!) 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?

Even the freaking camera that seemed to be a selling point with the carl ziess lense sucks. People who like the windows phone, don't really use the phone. They don't use facebook/instagram/pinterest. They can't use it with most accessories and gym equipment. They don't text alot because the keys are not accurate. So it leaves people to just like it's reception and calling capability.
And not to mention, updates! you have to plug it in to the computer to update and they take like an hour or more.

That htc was running Windows Mobile, not Windows Phone OS.

I love my Samsung Windows Phone. Would love to buy the OP's Nokia if he's selling it, assuming that it's either 920 or 928.
