I thought Android lagged bad but this, this is horrible lag of what roughly a year. I thought Windows was a gaming OS so why does it have a year lag, I can't play a game with a year lag?

But who is in charge of Facebook on Windows phones, Microsoft or Facebook?

I have my Lumia phone and not able to view photos on my Facebook app was suicide. The update is great but it lacks emoticons on FB messages.

Why wouldn't he? Nothing wrong with Windows Phone. Yes, still can use improvements, but by no means is it unusable for what most people need a phone for, unless you happen to use a bunch of Google services, or one of those folks who are app-mongers.

It's a word I made up, while responding to the post. Basically, a person the justifies the validity of an OS, completely on the number of apps. it was on the fly, so don't judge me too harshly. Laughing

Because the OS is beautifully made, simple, and quite powerful with its built-in features.

The only downside is that its app store isn't as big as Android or iOS, so you have people saying "Oh, it doesn't have Instagram or SnapChat?" and then they don't consider it again.

Well said! I love my Windows Phone.

The funny thing is that most of the major apps that people use are in the Store, and if the app is not there (like Instagram), then there are pretty good alternatives (like Instance and Hipstamatic's Oggl).

When was the last time you even used windows?

Windows 7 and 8, including windows phone 8 are SOLID.
They are very stable, very capable operating systems, and the best that Microsoft has ever made. There is nothing at all wrong with Windows, it doesn't matter what they made in the past.

Did you make that "unboxing" video for the ZTE Open?

Yes, but the upload failed and I didn't bother with it again. Are you requesting it? I can also give my thoughts on it. All-in-all... it's really not worth it. It's missing a lot of core features that have become ubiquitous in phones.

No auto-correct on the keyboard, and the keyboard was too small for my fingers so it made texting a chore. No way to transfer contacts besides the manual way. Apps will often just refuse to launch with an error. It was fine for calling, and even has a mobile hotspot feature (which surprised me).

I was expecting a little better from ZTE. I had the chance to check one of these phones just yesterday (after work).
I thought that they were going to put something better than a HVGA display on it, the interface is fairly fast but crashy and I would blame the little amount of RAM (256MB).
For $80 I can get an entry level Android phone from Alcatel or Huawei with better specs (WVGA display and 512MB RAM) if I get it "locked" with a prepaid carrier.

Gmail for android works fine and the native email client is decent. (at least to me it looked like a native app, I can't tell for sure since the phone I was handling wasn't mine)
Graphics... For some reason they look as if they were form the 2007 era. I don't know if it is the display or the...

That was another of my complaints, the camera... and the lack of MMS support. That's right, you can't send a picture message, nor can you receive one. For me, the most indispensable part of a phone is its messaging capabilities.
