    Hello everyone
    I have a question.

    Why do people HATE Windows Phone?

    I certainly don't hate it at all since it being my first smartphone (OS) and phone I ever used (Samsung Focus).

    Who hates it?

    I think that there are people sore at Microsoft over their actions with Internet Explorer a decade or so ago.

    Here are the most common complaints I've heard:

    - Missing apps (esp. first party ones)
    - lack of google services
    - homescreen looks ugly/disorganized
    - accent colours are too bright/childish/Fisher-Price
    - missing functionality
    - not enough customization
    - M$ sucks

    For the record, I'm a windows phone user and love it. However, I think some criticisms of the platform have merit, especially when it comes to missing functionality. It took ages to implement separate volume controls for ringer/music for instance.

    Honestly I agree especially like the notifications center.

    Goggle apps will never happen. A Starbucks and a few more banking apps would go a long way.

    It's fashionable to believe anything Microsoft is clunky and useless. (well, approximately)

    Well in a nutshell, but its more that Microsoft has some big PR issue IMHO.
