Windows Phone 8.1 has brought Microsoft’s phone platform quite a long ways since the early days. Now that we have a much broader feature list, I thought it t…
i have heard from people that Android has some issues like Lagging, Low
Battery life problems… But Windows Phones are better , i think, and i’ve
been thinking of get one. lumia 925 or 1020 (cos of 41 MP) , but, as
everyone says , windows phone lacks of various application options. i hope
they extend their applications.
Missing banking app? I wonder what kind of bank this zolotech guy is using.
Just about every major bank has an app for Windows Phone.
The home screen of Android has 3 to 4 sections – the bottom horizontal
strip etc. The icons they can house are not very different. Then what is
the need for different sections?
Windows phone OS addresses this issue by having a single home screen with
no boundaries. Everything, including images, songs, videos, apps, websites,
rail tickets, HERE drive route and traffic details, specific contacts,
everything can be pinned to the start screen. SIMPLICITY is the biggest
strength of Win 8 OS AS IT REMOVES THE CLUTTER PRESENT IN ANDROID.
This simplicity runs down to other features of Win 8 as well like the
multitasking windows, email client, people hub etc.
Customization vs No Customization.
You should have compared it to a Nexus 5 instead of crappy laggy S5!
Nexus 5 is the standard Android phone and would be better to compare!
This guy is trying hard to make the Windows phone seem ok – but ends up
showing off how much better android is.
Rebember one thing:
On Windows 8.1 You’re using Bing search, and not Google.
However nice comparizon.
(P.s. Windows 8.1 is better!)
I like the overall design of windows phone better, and I recently got a
Lumia 1520, and the proccessing power of it is overkill. Also I love the
windows phone cameras.
I was a former enthusiastic Windows Mobile user but switched to Android in
2010 after WinMo 6.5 was very stale. Part of me would like to switch back
now that Windows Phone is becoming more competent. I’m deeply embedded in
Android. All of my music and pics are stored in the Android Cloud. Is there
an easy way to import my contacts, photos and music to Windows? I love the
camera on Nokia Windows devices since I take a lot of pics at work for
customers. I appreciate any input.
Only on Windows Phone 8.1 you can watch youtube in 1080p (with IE in
desktop mode). Android and iOS can only stream 720p even if you have 1080p
display. That is big advantage for me and i’m using Lumia 1520 now instead
of Samsung Galaxy.
Gosh every review is so biased towards Android or iPhone. Because every big
mobile review company either owns android or iPhone. If this guy ACTUALLY
owned a Windows Phone and used it for more than a week I think he, like
myself and many others; would fall in love with the WP Operating System and
start realizing what a modern smartphone should be: all necessary
functions, no lag, quick and cool with a great camera to capture every
moment (which is what Windows Phone is)
Hmm… i really have to say to choose a Samsung phone and say that is kinda
equal to Googles own vanilla version of Android kinda makes this review
strange. This for instance shut down all apps in the same time, is a
manufactury thing that Samsung and Sony put in themselves and dont exist
(what I know) in 4.4 kitkat. So this kinda makes this comparison kinda off.
YOu should do it again and use a nexusphone or just say you compare with wp
8.1 against a Samsungphone because its is actually what you kinda did.
is there a desktop on a windows phone?
I was an android user for quite a while but I prefer the windows phones
now, I have a budget Lumia 620 and it’s brilliant with the 8.1 update it’s
very quick considering it’s limited spec when compared to the current crop
of 8.1 Windows phones but it does the job, wouldn’t touch an android phone
for love nor money now
developer mode voids warranty?
i don’t think that phones would come with an app that can void warranty
when pressed? Or a self destruct button
it is also not any good for market to grow larger. i think and hope that
you may be mistaken?
I’m new to the windows phone. Why isn’t my phone like yours? I have Nokia
they probably knew they were making a robotic and rusty OS when Android was
in the making…why else would they name it on something that they know
lags like a Robot…?? ANDROID? WHICH BTW ITSELF MEANS A ROBOT….2 months
into usage and the menus start jittering…..My windows phone is a year old
now and still runs fast without lag…fuckin Lagroid
You forgot alot of features about Windows Phone 8.1, like how it actually
DOES have folders (which you didn’t mention). I’m not going to say your
bais, but you do need to do your research before you make a review of both
phones so the viewers can see what both phones have to offer.
Also during the video, you seem to follow a pattern of saying “yes Windows
phone has this, BUT Android has this”. I understand that you’re trying to
compare both phones, but you sound like you’re repeating the same thing
over and over. You sound like you’re desperately trying make Android seem
better than all times.
The only thing i’d say about Windows Phone is that they could definitely
add a changing the font option. I really hate their stupid phone font _.
Also also, can anyone really complain about the app store? It’s not really
the company’s fault…i’d say that “blame” goes to the app developers.
Windows Phone isn’t really THAT popular and many developers either don’t
bring their app to Windows Phone, or they do but seldom update it so WP
users have to wait months for new features that iOS and Android get almost
immediately after their announced. If people really wanted to help the app
store, they’d need to bring more attention to Windows Phone.
I have used android, windows phone, and iOS, and in my opinion Android>
iOS> Widows Phone, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
am using nokia lumia 720 with windows 8.1 and lenovo 780 android kitkat for
the last several months.
my opinion hardware side Nokia is best . but on user interface it is still
a baby with the windows.
its personal preference, id go with windows but that is just me its really
up to you
I love my NOKIA WINDOWS phone. The sound has also improved !
When Windows 10 comes out, do I get to download it on my Nokia as an
upgrade or I would need to buy new phone? Thanks
you should highlight the negative sides of Samsung Android e.g. you need
root for almost everything (backup of apps, remove bloatware, disabled
services, use memory as mass drive…). Also stuff like Android won’t allow
you to change brightness if you are on 5% no matter what battery pack you
are using. You cannot change the volume in small steps, it only has those
10 presets. Restrictions of using external SD cards with 4.4 KittyKat and
I would like to know if Microsoft is also treating you like a baby and
won’t allow you to do anything technically with your phone.
TouchWiz made me cut myself!
