Longtime Android User Says HELLO to Windows Phone 8.1 - and GLAD HE DID
Belle, Phone Arena
13 June 2014
Excerpt: My first smartphone was an Android, and I've been hooked on google since. I have a chromebook, nexus 7, iPad, and always had an Android phone... until now. Even with the new KitKat update, I was still experiencing lag when unlocking my phone, opening the app drawer, opening the gallery, making a call, hanging up on a call, opening messaging, etc. After 6 years of android, I was starting to get tired of it and started to explore my options.
Pros: Camera is flat out beastly, 4 mic video recording sounds better than anything else out there, Smooth OS with no lags, Unique look and feel (hardware and OS)
Cons: Battery lasts all-day, but still wish it was bigger
Excerpt: Thank god I purchased this phone on Verizon Edge. Those without the money to purchase a new phone after a few months of suffrage should just avoid windows phone all together. Unfortunately for Nokia build quality can only take a phone so far...
Excerpt: Despite losing my Xenon flash from the Lumia 928 I upgraded from, this camera more than makes up for it with the higher resolution and decent LED flash. The aluminum band around the edge gives it a high quality build feel and the phone itself is solid physically and operationally.
Excerpt: Its a great phone if you can get through the day with a full charge. I didn't much like the shape of it, but the pros outweigh the cons. currently the best Windows Phone out! I presume with the Windows Phone 8.1 around the corner, the battery issue might be resolved along with some minor bugs when music files duplicate.
Pros: AMOLED screen, HAAC audio, big camera, Big internals
Excerpt: I've had two iphones, an android, and three windows phones. This is the best of the bunch. So fast/responsive, the camera is amazing, battery great. All the apps I need are available now. Overall great phone!
