    I own a skyrocket and NEVER once had to use a task killer....


    This right here shows you have zero idea as to how android works.

    I doubt you've ever even used a high end android.

    I have not had any issues ever, and since getting ics, my phone is better than ever.

    These arguments are ridiculous. People have no understanding of something but hate away.

    This is the only forum I've ever seen so much hatred or disinformation.
    Your honor, the defense rests.

    Um...yea this isn't the topic of the thread. Posts like these kill the mood and ruin the community, this is one of the first positive threads I seen on this site besides all the doom and gloom ones. Anyway I can't imagine myself on any other OS other than WP and picking up my moms android or my sisters iPod touch reminds me of this.
    The topic is a question, "Still loving your Windows Phone???" you can answer a question however you want.

    I never used a task killer on my motorola droid. It might have helped, but I doubt it. With the small amount of ram it had it had a hard time keeping up.

    Why is this an Android vs Windows Phone thread?

    Did someone feel the need to defend a platform because someone didn't like it, or had a bad experience? What are you doing?

    It's a Windows Phone forum, if someone talks bad about Android, even if it's a bad argument, read it and move along, why do threads need to become a Windows Phone vs Android discussion. Why?

    Deal with criticism, and move along. It's a thread with a simple question: "Still loving your Windows Phone". Answer yes or no, specify your reasons if you want to, read other people posts, and move along. There's no need to defend any of the platforms.

    Seriously guys, what are you doing?...

    Mods, please close this if it doesn't get back on topic or/and clean it up.

    you can replace the word android with WP7 in your statement and it also rings true.

    1st time WP7 user and I don't have all these issues.

    The reason it turned into windows phone vs android is because someone mentioned he is not happy with his windows phone and is thinking of getting an HTC One X. Then people started telling him that android is a big mess and has a terrible experience.

    I like windows phone a lot but I use android because it gives me a more full experience at the moment.

    Like I said before, if you don't like the misinformation and hatred you don't have to be here and see it. No sense in getting offended by what's said about another platform in a windows phone forum

    So basically you T**** Android users and then hide behind the fact that this is a WP7-centric forum to try to justify it by saying we can bash anything or anyone and call them derogatory names but they either have to deal with it or GTFO? (as long as that anything or anyone isn't WP7 or a WP7 "fanboi", I reckon?)

    I almost want to report your post, but that's beneath me. Maybe someone else will...

    Your hostility is teethering on illogical at this point. I really don't understand the reason for it.
    Are you serious? The first two pages barely had any comments that one could say were even trashing Android or Android users. Then that djdtox guy comes in and basically stirs **** up and now you're defending that?

    If so, you're an *****.

    Anyways, back on topic. Half loving my phone at this point. Loving it for the OS but starting to feel the need to switch up hardware; specifically screen size.

    Still loving my HTC Titan, YES!
    Coming from Android 6/7 months ago, my last phone Samsung Galaxy Europa constantly froze, crashed randomly reset itself and towards the end of its life shuddered to a halt when performing even basic tasks like sending an SMS.
    In the 6/7 months I've had the Titan I have had to restart it once and its still as smooth since i got it.

    friendly reminder!

    - this is forum , people can post any complaints/experience/ personal preference as so long as he stays on topic and doesn't directly INSULT a member. as well as respecting forum rules.

    - bashing Android might not be *constructive* but its allowed to be used as reference to compare to WP. as longs as the general rules are followed.

    - as much as you can trash talk just keep it civil , and try not to have duplicates of the same trash talks.


    NOW LETS HAVE A NICE CLEAN FIGHT!!!!

    I'm using my Optimus 7 since September 2011 and I love my Windows Phone.

    It's weird, but the only thing that gets me down are the constant waves of unfair negative articles about Windows Phone, and all the trolls doing their thing on the forums.

    But then I get reminded by people like you, that actually have and use a Windows Phone, that it's a fantastic OS.

    I too can't imagine switching. I look at Android or iOS and they just feel old and completely stagnant, I'm also in too deep on how WP actually works, I just feel like a fish out of water using those other OS.

    I became an active member on various forums simply because I kept seeing a lot of lies and unfair criticism of Windows Phone, and many other people like me are bringing the hammer down on the bull**** constantly being written around the web.

    But I think that the tide is starting to turn, and like I said on another forum a few months ago, qualitity will eventually prevail over popularity, and Windows Phone = Quality.
    I couldnt agree more, too many negative articles online that make you wanna strangle the writers!! Most of the time, they are so uneducated about the OS that they flat out state lies, misconceptions and falsehoods and then of course add how either iphone or android are "superior". What in fact is so superior? Specs? They mean nothing compared to useability. Ive launched a full assault on sites like Phonedog which typically skew WIndows Phone repeatedly and its fun to hear the responses back from the writers...and even funner to get all the likes and agreements from others who see what I see...that these tech sites are trying to make windows phone fail...and they will NOT succeed...its just too damn good!

    I'm closer to jumping to Android than ever before. The One X has such a great camera and display. I'm tired of missing features but I'm too attached for the Me tile and Other exclusives.
    Imagine, a one x with windows...patience and you will get everything you desire by end of 2012...thats the beauty of windows phone, its going to evolve and eventually SURPASS the rest...maybe not in adoption but in useability, enjoyment, and most of all, stability...

    Same here. I'm in the tech industry. Ive had cell phones since the day that they came in a small suitcase. This is the first time that i feel the tech is getting sublime. To this point, it has been something that was intrusive and something obligatory to my industry. Now, this is a SIMPLE, unobtrusive device that I carry with me thar just WORKS. It's not something I have to manage, it just IS. Whether it's in my pocket or on my desk, I NEVER think about it anymore. I just check it when I want to. It's still able to meet all my tech needs, but it is becoming part of the background and letting me get back to the important things in my life. I find I am spending less time thinking and worrying about it. It's a resource that just IS.
    I completely agree! It just works....I use it when I NEED to use it and Im in and out if I wanna, or If i wanna hang on my phone killing time, there is plenty for me to do, but its all MY CHOICE and its one of the main reasons Im so happy with my choice!! Windows Phone is like your partner, it doesnt work against you, it works with you, like a team mate. I dont feel the need to down other OS's to lift windows phone but just in relation to my own windows phone experience, my coworker was going to jump aboard but ended up getting an htc amaze. (his first smartphone) Everyday practically, he comes to me and asks how to do some of the simpiest tasks, and frankily, its hard for me to help him because its so complicated in comparison. Simplicity is where its at...

    I'm a Samsung Focus S user myself! I love how the Samoled Plus screen make the colors pop! I'm a little discouraged by Samsung's lack of support for the platform though. I'm ready to jump on the Nokia bandwagon!
    Samsung is just waiting for Apollo to really bring in the big guns(their exclusive apps that they developed for Galaxy s III). I think the Nokias are fantastic devices but I wouldnt trade my Sammy Focus S for anything! (funny story too, I even wrote Mr. Elop to see if he would do a trade but Im glad he didnt)Its a perfect device, sleek, thin, gorgeous screen, fantastic camera and mine has been pretty darn bullet proof! It will definaltey be a tough decision when my contract is up...there are gonna be so many awesome choices int he coming years, its gonna be a treat picking out a next gen device...but for now, the Focus S has everything the other guys do..excpet LTE, and my 4g speeds keep me happy enough to not even worry about that now.

    So I have used the Samsung Focus S for about a month now, I got it through the
    Microsoft challenge. I came from an iPhone 4S for reference.

    So far I enjoyed most of what the Windows Phone 7.5 has to offer. I realy enjoy the email view as well as the messaging. Screen is better than the iPhone IMO and the Amoled is also nice especially with the blacks.

    There are a few things that have me trying my iPhone again for a few days to decide which one I want to keep. First is the camera. I use the camera alot! The Focus S has a nice camera but I get better pictures with the iPhone. However the Focus has a much more robust software package to complement it's camera. Second is iMessage. All my friends and family have iPhones and therefor imessage. We use it alot and it's convienent. I did try whatsapp but it was just ok and pretty slow to startup. The last is the app selection. I don't need 600,000 apps so thats not what I'm complaining about. It's the simple ones like pandora and slacker radio that I'm talking about. Pandora doesn't have a native app and all 3rd party apps don't work now. Slacker didn't work all the time and would often freeze on the loading screen.

    That is my experience on the windows phone platform. A fantastic start but still some work to be done. I will say that I tried Android a while back and that only lasted 3 days! So Windows phone IMO is definitely nicer. I really believe we need as much competition to drive creativity so I really hope Windows Phone succeeds.

    Yes apps on WP are definitely more expensive on average. Especially games. There are also a lot fewer free apps on WP.
    Of course they are, they are new to the platform so they should be priced as NEW. Example, Grand Theft Auto Vice City for xbox came out well after its release on PS2. When it was 20 bucks on PS2, it was 60 bucks on Xbox. Call it what you will but its perfectly fair to charge new game prioces for a NEW gaame to a platform. And believe me, I was happy to pay the 60 for the xbox version...because I LOVE playing games on my xbox over a ps2(controller, graphics, etc) and thats exactly the same feeling I have with apps. I might pay a lil more but Im playing/using the app on my WINDOWS PHONE, and thats far better than getting it for free on an android that I dont like using for every other task. I cant live without the me tile...

    the intense hatred of android in these forums is laughable...

    People owned the cheapest android phones with 500mhz processors then complain that android is slow.

    Ics is amazing, most of the comments against android are blatantly people who have never used it spouting "I heard this" rumors and bs.

    Until I can control seperate ringtones at the very freakin least, I'll never come back to wp7.

    Sorry but style is not better than substance imo.
    Im sorry but thats not the case. Ive played with an HTC amaze 4g and the Droid Bionic among other devices and still, they are far more laggy and generally slow in responses compared to my Focus S. Ive done a few smoked by windows phone challenges against my brother's Bionic and I won everytime. ICS might be amazing, your right, but its still not the metro UI and its definatley not the same user experience, and thats what sets Windows Phone apart. Its different...and if thats not what your looking for, enjoy your android. But with my experience, even on higher end models, android is extrememly frustrating and laggy, and Id take windows phone any day of the week, even over whatever quad core 3 mhz model they come up with...thats the problem with android, you need that horsepower and then when they upgrade the OS next year, its still not enough to run it right so here you are, back to the store for a new phone...definaltey not the cycle I want to get into...not one bit..

    When you use your camera, do you tap the screen to take pics or do you use the physical button? I used to always use the physical button and pics were kinda a mixed bag. But ever since i stated tapping the screen, I find my pictures to be quite fantastic! Very sharp and detailed and typically, the auto focus is always dead on. Night pics leave some to be desired but if you play with some of the settings, you might be pleasently suprised by the results.

    About imessage, I hear ya, at one point, all my friends had blackberries so they were all about BBM and i felt left out...but there are so many ways to stay connected to my friends(fb, twitter, text, messenger) that in reality, I didnt miss it after all. What do you think about the people hub? Man, I never thought i would be so connected to my friends and family until I got a windows phone. Its one of the main reasons Id never leave the platform.

    How have you liked going from the 3.5 to the 4.3 screen? I had a 3.4 screen on my KIN(yup, the original MS iphone competitor lol) and I never thought the screen size was too small but now, I just love the extra real estate. watching movies is awesome, typing is never cramped, and the super amoled plus display just KILLS!
