    I agree, everyone tries to compare it to other OS phones. Each OS has there own positives and negatives. There is not one perfect phone or everyone would have it. If you like Mango great! If not like the person above said, move on.

    If you enjoy Xbox, Facebook, Skype, and use a Windows 7 Computer with Office Docs then you will probably be pretty happy with WP7

    If you use Google products (gmail, docs, google +, etc) and enjoy being able to upload just about whatever you want from a computer to your phone then use Android.

    If you want the best gaming on cell phones and use a Mac or iPad then use a iPhone.

    Each person is different, its just about what works best for you. I myself love to game a lot (xbox), so thats why I am torn between a iPhone and a WP7. As much as I love WP7, the games and prices are just not there...yet. Hopefully it will get more products and the WP7 rises

    While some complaints can be a bit silly, getting frustrated over people's complaints is a bit much, don't you think? I see no point in creating a thread just to tell people to STFU.

    about time someone feels the same way I do. on XDA it's really bad over there with this and just general bashing and the mods don't do anything about it. I've seen complaints over a progress bar, over how this mobile site renders fonts, lack of stop button etc.

    haha, I was going to complain about making a complaint thread but you do have a point, there's more complaining than excitement. I guess that shows how much MS still lives in the shadow of iOS and Android. There's a whole lotta good stuff in Mango but the thing people concentrate on the most are Mango's shortcomings in comparison to iOS/Android.

    There is a ton of good in wp7. I do not think anyone doubts that. How many threads have you satisfied people posted talking about the great features you like and how you use them to make your life simpler. Let me go check the threads.

    0

    Not a single thread in the WP7 OS discussion forum page1. Not a single one. There are some comparison threads. How to make a phone update to mango and a few reviews posted. So it may seem like every other thread is a complaint because none of the pundits are posting appreciation threads. I do not mean "Thank you MS for this wonderful mobile OS." threads either. Some with real content. Get on it. Its half your guys fault.

    Let me throw this out for the board...

    Do you think that the complaints have an ulterior movtive? Do you think the complaints are purposely done to bring negative light to the OS?

    Its much easier to criticize than to compliment. Especially in a non-contact communication context such as posting on a forum. The most compliment you see here is a like or thanks. When someone complains on here its probably because they have been annoyed with something for a while and finally decided to let it out and vent on a public forum where its allowed. I did not read the by laws of this site, so just assuming its allowed. If the same user uses another feature with no problems and it allows him to conduct his day with no annoyances, then it pretty much slips his mind as its intuitive for him and requires no conscious thought.


    EDIT: My biggest and most important complaint is that the Titan is still not available at my ATT Store. My dad and brother just picked up their 4S phones today.

    Agreed. If something works, then oh well, it's suppose to work. But if it fails, rant rant rant. Just human nature.

    Nobody would even be here for more than a couple of days if they don't generally like wp7. So what's the deal here? should I say something nice about wp7 and everybody just nods along and congratulate each other for making smart purchases?

    Well, here we go. One thing I like about wp7 is how that little arrow turns when swiping from home screen to app menu. Totally useless, but I appreciate the fact that developers paid attention to details and it does not impact performance. That's what I like about wp7. Elegant and smooth throughout.

    Now I got that out of my system, can I got back to complaining? :)

    There's a big difference between complaining and bringing up a valid issue.

    Live Tiles not working? Valid issue.

    Not enough xbox Live titles? borderline.

    Not enough theme colors? probably complaining.

    We're all in Windows Phone, we all like it, some more than others, some more rabidly. We all want it to succeed, so we push for more features, better features, and highlight what's missing.

    If you get offended by this and call people stupid, you know you're a fanboy. If you offer workarounds and solutions, then you're what's right with this board.

    I'm happy about mango, multi-tasking, voice text, camera settings, pretty much everything that WP has. But am I content with that and just willing to sit back and hope that the phone devs read my mind? Of course not. That would be idiotic. So I make suggestions, offer up issues, and try to help others figure out how to use the OS effectively.

    And you should, too.

    You're lying.

    Post links to those threads or posts...

    I'm one of the most vocal critics of WP7 (and Android) on that forum and I can care less what you think about me, but no one there is complaining about a stop button or progress bar. Font Rendering, maybe, but I don't remember seeing that.

    Most of the Vitriol there comes from WP7 fanbois who are overly sensitive to criticism and dissenting opinion towards the platform.

    The MODs would have to ban either side of the WP7 community there, or everyone, to get rid of it all. All you have to do is say "I don't like <x>" and a flamewar ensues.

    I'm equally critical of all platforms. Platforms don't improve by telling them what they did well. They improve by telling them where they fail, so that they can improve on it. If you did it well, you didn't do anything great. You just did what I expected you to do. After all, I paid for this phone, and it wasn't cheap - either...

    Oops, see what have you done? The dimension portal has been opened and the two parallel forums known as XDA and wpcentral start to merge. Now, this isn't going to be pretty.
