Hope u guys are doing fine. I am posting after a very long time here. Just as a disclaimer, this thread is NOT ABOUT WP8 bashing. I just want to discuss how different it was after almost a year.
In case you didn't know, I had the htc HD7 and today morning, I walked into the store to look for a tablet for myself. While looking through the phone section, I casually asked the store guy "heard of Windows Phone 8" the guy said, "one minute sir..." So I thought, another way to ignore a question, but to my surprise, he produces this...
I was taken aback and pleasantly surprised with this...
So here are some first impressions, the phone is Supppeeerrrr light....I couldn't get around this fact for a long time.. It is brilliant hardware and I give it to HTC for that. Secondly, the over all OS. I will be very very honest here, it did feel a little, like a millisecond slow as compared to HD7. I used the HD7 for almost a year, so I still remember how it was. Very very snappy. Could the varied sizes of tiles be blamed? Was it because of the White BG? I am not complaining, but after such a long wait, I finally took the device in my hand and it was a little bit of triumph I felt. I would be going to another store of the same chain and see if they had it. Black was the only colour available. I played around for almost 5 minutes, before the battery died (as you can see in the pic).
So that's that.
