    Thought on this guys? I think WP8.1 is closing the gap.

    They DID close the gap. Unfortunately others will still find excuses to hate WP8.1. By others I mean Android and iPhone users.


    I especially love the themed lock screen idea. The diagonal one was sick!

    They have sort of helped themselves and sort of given away too much time to iOS and Android to suffocate and kill Cortana, a single best feature that makes WP8.1 superior, even before she sees the day light.

    With WP8.1 the only reason there will be a gap is because of closed minded people.

    The gap has definitely been narrowed, if not completely closed. There will still need to be compelling reasons to switch though.

    Yeah, I agree with everyone. Hopefully, the 'Apps" excuse diminish.

    I think it's now on-par, but to get large numbers of people to switch, it has to be better.

    Well It would not still compel to make a switch from iOS,unless they opened up APIs to devs to allow better integration b/w apps and overall a better productive experience...i am not saying Apple is doing it,funnily,it is not doing it,this is the problem..So a closed ecosystem with wealth of features would really make wp standout from the rest..why didn't they take that route ? No os would come close to them if they did that and i really hope that they do it eventually....


    BTW on objective basis it has almost narrowed the gap except that app gap...But WP should do better because it can..it has loads of potential...

    I think in many respects, WP8.1 is superior.
    It will now be down to developers to port their Apps/Games to ALL ecosystems and let the consumer decide.
    I really like what MS has done and don't see why WP8.1 it shouldn't be a success.
    I especially look forward to getting the new Lumia 930.

    App selection is still kinda a problem, especially regional stuff. Other than this, it's just a matter of personal preference, and iSheeps and fandroids will still be naysayers.

    I'm pretty sure Android 4.4 still has a ****-ton more of features than iOS 7 which has a ****-ton more features than WP8.1. Sure MS closed the gap on iOS 7 to maybe 80%, but they better keep iterating faster.

    Feature wise, it is on par I think but the application is the driving force so bare bones without apps I think the 3 OS are on par with each other.

    Depends what you mean. Features or apps? From a features perspective it will be pretty much on par once the rest of the world has access to all the functions. I won't go on about the US centric view that MS has.

    From an apps perspective we're way behind. There's been several articles out stating that more an more people are going app centric over mobile web. So we have some hill climbing to do still.

    After seeing this comparison, I can make out that WP is far from being at par with Android & iOS. It's considerably behind iOS & wayyyy behind Android.

    "Do you think WP8.1 is on par with IOS and ANDROID?"

    We don't know that yet. They said that WP8.1 have 100 more features and we haven't seen an official the feature list yet.
    100 more features is way more than the feature lists we know so fare.

    id ignore that list as some/most of the "NO" had been addressed with 8.1 and until that list is updated to reflect this then ill ignore. Also, can you expand on the "wayyyyyy" behind ios and android statement as i don't see how its that far behind.

    Thanks

    As a core OS? Yes.

    It all comes down to how well the existing and new apps work with the system. Any OS can have millions of apps. Having apps integrating properly and providing a good user experience is a completely different matter altogether.
