[WP] Windows Phone once again rivals iPhone in PCMag’s Reader Survey - Page 4

post #31 of 95
All this fragmentation talk, I can see where it is coming from. Just doesn't make sense to me, do people want a closed system like iOS? Do you want to be given only one or two choices? I like choices, don't like to be told what I want/like.

They want a phone that works and both iOS and WP provides that, not wiz, sense and other bloatware.

You don't need to have an OS implemented like iOS just because you have a fixed hardware set (less fragmentation). You can have Android just as it is, only implemented on a smaller hardware set with fewer considerations when programming.

If limiting the hardware set yielded significant improvements in stability across platforms (and didn't increase handset prices), then I'd be all for it. Is it perfectly fair? No. Does it solve a lot of stability problems for users, and allow developers to make products more efficiently? Absolutely.

But this is never going to happen.

When I used ipnone 3G I did not like ios and itunes (also it was very slow). switched to android Galaxy 1, same day i found that it does not connect to secure wifi, gps does not work, no skype and price same as iphone 4. Whatta hell!!! I tried custom rom and it fixed SOME problems, but why I should fix phones and risk losing warranty. Year after att came out with os update (useless). After all problem im still on stock galaxy 1 and waiting for some phone that has no limit like android and stable like iOS.

But I would enjoy the android more just because I would know how to use it at its best ... or something like that.


LOL^

 

 

Android wasn't even around 4 years ago. The people who predominately use Android devices are CHILDREN who need to text, tweet & play with their phones. Android phones are more like a toy, than an actual phone. (That is why angry birds and crosswords are so popular...) I cannot wait to dump my Android device... I have never felt so handicapped by a phone in my life.

 

Android doesn't even come with a text editor.. (word processor). It is not a professional device, it meant for entertainment.

 

 

 

 

Apple's iOS & WinPhones are stand-alone phones with a real OS under the belt. Not a compartmentalized/piecemeal app system for functionality...

Because Microsoft has tens of years of SOFTWARE development experience and OEMs should not touch anything but the hardware where they have experience.

Woah, hold on. What is this, then?

I'm sorry, but your comment is full of bunk. It seems you haven't explored much of the platform before you say such statements.

Dude, even iOS and WP7 have word processors as apps, not full programs like MS Office.
