Not sure why WP7 gets all the hate; my guts feeling is that people don't like to hear the WP7 is awesome when they have an Android of iPhone... it's takes away from their epeen or they feel threatened??

I'm actually an Android and Windows Phone 7 user. I own the Samsung Focus and the HTC Evo 4(work provided this for free). Personally I prefer the Windows Phone 7 operating system. It's superior imop; it's simplicity and usability is better than Android. Only thing I really like with Android more is the amount of apps available.

i love my htc hd7.... the only 2 things i really do no tlike, is when the black screen comes up to lock everything all apps that are running et closed and are saved to the back ground.... and there is no skype yet for it..... i hope skype come out for it soon. i am so lost with out my skype.... and since ms bought skypw over i am hopeing it will be in the next few weeks it will be avallible

i also love it how some people say the first smart phone was an iphone...... that is also so wrong... i think it was nokia with there 9210i or somthing like that.

apple in my opinion is overrated and i do not like them at all. now you might say yes you hate it because you never had one.... actualy yes i have had one and i work withthem all the time... it is a POS imo........ it is what you would call a yuppie toy...... google it is (www.google.co.za) or my translation people with out an identity that use an expensive toy as one to get recognised

WP7 has never frozen on me and I love my surround to death but the battery life kills me. I need my phone to last at least a full day on heavy usage. The batteries in these phones are really small :/

*smartphone

But yes, it was. The iphone 2G changed the market completely, if apple hadn't released it we'd most likely still be playing around with our nokias and blackberries.

As for hating WP7, I definitely don't, I usually try to throw it into my recommendations for phones. Its a good all round OS, plus it has the slickest UI ever.
Its not about the time being, im not going to feel sorry for a company if their product sucks, me as a consumer is going to pick the best at the time and thats it. Oh and dont a smartiepants, it was obvious that this whole thread is about smarthphones or do i really have to specify it just for you.

I'll be honest with you, if I had to chose between the two, I'd choose my Windows Phone 7. But the Android is nice too-- but there are lot of annoying things I dislike about it, for example, like the inability to get rid of preloaded apps like the Blockbuster or Nascar apps, etc. They both have pros and cons, but the WP7 is the better OS imop.

Uhhh... you can get rid of bloatware via rooting your Evo 4G (it's super-easy with some programs) and manually uninstalling the apps via Titanium Backup. What's even better in Android is that you can flash a new ROM if you don't like HTC's Sense UI.

Windows Phone 7 is exceedingly simple to use (got to play with the HD7 and Surround) and very smooth to navigate, which is great for new smartphone users and normal consumers. But for power users like me, it isn't flexible enough to be customized top to bottom.

I have a Surround too, and I agree...I've noticed the battery life isn't too impressive (I haven't actually measured and taken time trails). Maybe I can get a higher mAh battery sometime.

Edit: the stock one is 1230 mAh.

Where can I find info on this? I'd like to get rid of all the crap-ware that comes with the phone.

Yes it's true, the HTC Surround has poor battery life. However, this isn't the case with all WP7's. My Sumsung Focus lasts a long time for a smart phone. It can last two days without a charge, unless of course, I played games on it all day.

However, my Android HTC Evo 4 must of been made of a similar mold as the HTC Surround. It's battery life is TERRIBLE!!!

This should get you started with rooting, and everything else in between.
