[TV] Microsoft turns to 'smoked by Windows Phone' for its latest warlike advertising - Page 2

post #11 of 72
I spotted so many people on android not doing things properly, Like launching Facebook and then uploading instead of taking the photo > share > facebook...

Windows phones isn't faster, The windows dude just uses all the short cuts that the android users don't know existed, Internet speed would also skew the results quite badly as well imo...

I reckon I'd beat him easily...

I'm a huge Android junkie and hacker. Normally, I would rave on like a fanboy, but I have never used a Windows phone. I'll never buy one, but I would really be interested in playing with one to see all it features that I've heard about. The interface looks neat.

I've got a Lumia 800.

I take a photo, and i've got a 'Share to facebook' button there and waiting, it then asks me if I want to add a caption, if not, I can upload straight to facebook.

'easily'.. Not really.

The Kernel was a throwback to XP, they took a good hard look at what works, what was quick, and how to stop background processing versus "one and done". Combined with actual peoples feedbacks (and some proper looking over Androids shoulder) they've got a solid platform.

If they keep it updated, provided a good App basis, and get some more hardware contracts behind it, they could smack Android around or give a run for their money. But they need to create the aura of "it all works together" that they're now striving for.

Some people buy Apple because Apple works with Apple. They don't know its made to NOT work well with Windows, but they see it does do what they want with Apple products.
If windows can make a with windows, for windows, and keep it tidy, neat, and grab some college/young-age crowd (since BB seems to be declining), they might just have it.

Seriously rethinking my upcoming upgrade now. Before it was going to be a droid razr.

May the phone wars properly begin.

So does my phone, Only I don't get asked for a caption, the options already there and waiting and as I said before, Network speed would play a major major role in this...

Was the windows phone on wifi or a 3g/4g network? Was the other phones on wifi or 3g/4g.... That difference alone would make a big difference to every test.

The lumia is a nice phone and I love the design and the clean lines but it would of been better on a more established OS like android.

Yeah, I'm not a pro, but just as a heads up Android also has a share button right there when you take a picture, or if you're just looking at it in the gallery. You hit 'share' then pick if you're sharing with MMS, Email, Facebook, twitter, etc. For people to act like it takes any amount of time on any of these platforms is just silly. The average user isn't sitting there speed taping while normally using their phone, so these matter of seconds tests kinda confuse me, as if it would open up something in your life.

Since pictures seems to be a huge feature on smart phones, what about the fact that Windows Phone 7 requires a 2-stage physical camera button, where as some Android phones don't even have one.

My friend just upgraded from an aging flip phone to an Android, I forget which one in particular. He had a hard time figuring out the Android interface and was actually quite ticked off by the lack of a camera button. His gripe was that to take a picture, he would have to tap on the side of the screen so he could still at least see what he is taking a picture of and he would sometimes hit the home or back buttons (he does have larger fingers).

I let him try my Windows Phone the same day that he got his Android after hearing him frustrated about the interface. He was zipping through the WP7 interface like he programmed it and new every secret.

Needless to say, he returned Android for an iPhone so he could try it's interface out but he's pretty sold on the WP7's interface.





Have you guys seen the rumored updates for WP7 7.6 & 8.0?

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Future updates

Windows Phone 7.6: codename Tango
Tango will be a minor update, similar to the "NoDo" update, planned to be released in 2012 Q2. It will help Windows Phone to run on low-cost devices with 256 MB RAM. It is rumoured to support Skype and Google+ integration through people hub, messaging, and chat. Also, it will resize media controls for a more comfortable view, gain support for 120 languages (adding support for 85 additional languages), make devices more accessible internationally, add C++ app support, and allow the grouping of start screen tiles into folders.[34]

Windows Phone 8: codename Apollo
  • Apollo is the codename for the next generation of Windows Phone, as confirmed at an MSDN seminar in August 2011.[35]
  • List of features coming in Apollo, confirmed by Microsoft[36][37][38]
  • Support for multi-cores
  • Support for four different resolutions, though no specifics were given
  • NFC support added, including payment and content sharing with WP8 and Windows 8 machines
  • Carrier control and branding of "wallet" element is possible via SIM or phone hardware
  • MicroSD support added for expandable storage
  • Transitions to core components from desktop, including kernel, network stack, security components, and media support
  • Simplified porting of desktop apps to mobile
  • Zune desktop integration scrapped in favor of new, unnamed syncing app
  • Deeper Skydrive integration, including ability to sync data such as music collections
  • Xbox Companion app will get Windows 8 partner client
  • Native code support, simplified porting from Android and iOS
  • App-to-app communication and integration
  • Skype client with deep OS hooks that will make it almost identical to placing standard voice calls
  • Camera app now supports "lenses", which allow third parties to skin and add features to camera interface
  • DataSmart tracks and reports usage via app and live tile
  • Gives preferential treatment to WiFi, can automatically connect to carrier-owned hotspots
  • Proxy server will compress websites in Internet Explorer 10 up to 30 percent
  • Native Bitlocker encryption
  • Support for proprietary, custom built apps to be deployed behind company firewalls

Well.... My SPring Epic 4g, which is a Samsung Galaxy, i bought it because it has slideout keyboard and a two stage camer Button, hold her down for focus, and click her for the picture

well placed too and it doesnt often open itself (Camera mode will start if you hold the camera button down)

My Wifes Galaxy S from Verizon however does NOT have the camera button of keyboard

1. My android phone has a 2 stage dedicatd camera button on the side
2. Tell your friend to buy a android phone with a camera button

Android is an OS and you nit picking about a camera button is a problem with the hardware and phone, Something of which gogle are not responsible for rolleyes.gif
