View Full Version : Testing a Windows 8 Phone

I had the chance to play with a Windows 8 phone, signed in hotmail, added googled, facebook, linkedin, etc.. and I have to tell you, it's not that bad. I am so used to iOS I guess, and it's still my first choice, but Windows phone definitely comes second, much better in my opinion than Android.

One feature I particularily liked, which I guess you won't appreciate unless you actually setup the phone with your Ids, is the 'People' tile. It is smart enough to match contacts from my phonebook (Google Contacts) to Hotmail to Facebook to Linkedin. This is great because in one location, you can lookup a person, see their facebook updates, tweets, linkedin updates, etc... It is really much more people centric than any other mobile system.

Another feature is the ability to create a 'tile' for entities, not only apps. For example, I have a favorite Pandora station, I can create a tile for it. You can even create a tile for a person (i.e. your significant other) for one click access to them.

All joking aside, not as bad as I expected it to be. I think the biggest problem Windows 8 has is that it's 6 years too late.

I don't think it is bad, but the one thing stopping me from using it is no notification center. It really is a shame b.c I love nokia's hardware and camera.

True. Remember we got a proper notification center in iOS 5 (I think), it took Apple a couple of iterations to workout the process in their system. MS needs a similar approach.

I personally think of all three (Windows 8, Windows 8 RT, Windows 8 Phone) - Phone is the one were tiles and 'metro' makes most sense

Yeah in terms of "premiumness" and easy usability factor, Ios feels best, then windows and lastly android. Android sometimes feels crude due to lag/ugly scrolling mechanics

That's just the "shiny, new, and different" talking. Use it for about 2 weeks, then get back to us. I guarantee you'll have changed your tune by then.

Then again, it's probably easier for someone that uses iOS exclusively to move to WP8 than someone that's used Android for a while. Once you know the freedom that an OS like Android affords you, going back to a closed ecosystem is almost impossible. Since iOS and WP8 are so closed, therefore so much alike, the difference is more aesthetic than anything.

Your opinion on Android is your opinion, and I respect that. I, however, feel quite the opposite. I've got my iPhone 5 that I use from time to time, but inevitably I go back to my Moto X or S4. And after having the Lumia 920 earlier this year, it'll be a least a couple of years before I give WP another try (because that's how far out I feel it is from being a mature OS).

You are right, a friend of mine got Lumia 1020, and after the noverly wore off he is looking into way to go back to iPhone, this explains why WP8 phones dropped so much in value, I got an HTC 8x, used for one month, for less than $200, and like I said, I am testing it - I'm still using my iPhone.

Yep. The 1020's camera is amazing, but that's the sort of tricks WP8 devices have to resort to in order to draw in customers. Once that "Ohh, I've got a 41 megapixel camera!" feeling wears off, you suddenly realize you're using WP8 and that camera doesn't seem to pull it's weight like it did right after you got the phone.

And it's funny you mention the 8X, as I almost got one of those months ago instead of the 920. Now there's one sitting on Swappa for $130 and the poor guy can't GIVE it away. And it's in decent condition, too. It's just that no one wants a WP. Once you've used it, you quickly figure out why.

I'm actually waiting for my Nokia 1020 to arrive :D
switched from the 4s to Lumia 920 earlier this year but didn't really give it a chance on had it for 2 days and returned it for lack of apps. Went with Android (LGOG) for about 7 month and back to iPhone 5. Going to give Lumia 1020 another try. I personally like IOS>WP8>Android. iOS has the app selections but a little stale in looks, WP8 looks nice, but lack the apps, Android is actually the best of both worlds except it gets laggy and buggy after awhile. That could just be the devices that I use (Samsung Tab2 and LG Optimus G)

And hopefully good Outlook/Exchange support! It's not like the phone will be used or consuming apps and Instagramming either.

I'll have my iPhone as my personal phone, Nexus 7 as my tablet, Windows Phone as my work phone, Windows gaming desktop and Mac laptop :D One happy family.

This is mostly just honeymoon phase talk with a new OS.

I tried WP7 last year as my primary for six months.

Yes, it is very smooth and tiles are not as static. Yes, it has cool transitional animations that sometimes feels like overkill. Yes, it can do some better things than Android and iOS.

I enjoyed it up until my phone got stolen. But I never went back to it. Eye candy with lack of apps and iOS-like restrictions.

I would rather have Android that might be visually less appealing or less smooth than have an OS restrict me to do alot of things like what WP and iOS do.

I had the Lumia 520 - it was only $100 at Wal-Mart, but I returned it. It had the latest Windows Phone 8 OS on it, but hopefully in 8.1 they get a notification center. I mean, seriously, Microsoft.

Well apparently 8.1 will bring a much needed notification centre. Its a shame because it is a nice OS to use but I certainly wouldn't consider using it as my daily phone. Great UI though which seems like both Apple and Google are moving towards with thinner fonts and "flatness"

Hey, let's try to pry open Apple & Google's stronghold with a product that's just not too bad. If at first this strategy does not succeed, we'll just keep pouring more & more money into it. If it drags down our partners, we'll buy them too. What could possibly go wrong?

LOL. I haven't been this happy with a phone since iPhone 4. It's just as restrictive as iOS, but the UI is just as enjoyable. Whether you come from Android or iOS, you will find some familiarly in WP.



You just have to have an open mind going in.



I never used the notifications in Android or iOS. Either do my parents actually. I prefer badges and the banners/ribbons, which a majority of WP apps do have.

Microsoft really needs to stop dragging ass, and put some muscle behind Windows Phone.

Update the software more often for one.

And two, get a real mobile strategy that well attract developers which in turn will entice users.

One of the things I liked about Windows Phone was that when I opened my People Tile, the pictures show up instantly similar to when I open the Photo gallery app on iOS. Android is not very good at caching. You still see the photos being loaded onto the screen.

Back as late-2011, I used iOS, WP, and Android concurrently. Android was my LEAST fav. WP was visually more impressive and iOS was the best all-around esp with apps and smoothness. Then Android matured with Ice Cream Sandwich and got even better with Jelly Bean's Project Butter. It took me about a year to actually like Android.

WP is just tough for me to go back to since it lacks the useful apps and is just as restrictive and closed as iOS. I guess it is like Google Search vs Bing. The latter is more visually impressive but the former is more useful for me and I can get far more searches. Just no fan of Microsoft's ecosystem trying to copy Apple's way. No fan of Bing or Internet Explorer or even Xbox. I do like the Metro UI on their music app which I can still get with Android using UberMusic w/ Metro UI skin. Back in 2009, I was pretty much impressed with that Zune HD.

WP came out like 2 years too late. Even Windows 8 is not hit as most folks are content with W7. And I find it to be ALL STYLE, NO SUBSTANCE. Windows Mobile was uglier but far more customizable and useful.

As an IT professional and Microsoft engineer for various technologies, I can’t wait to try out Windows Phone, but I am going to wait for next major release and perhaps first Microsoft phone – if one exists.

I am also hoping that once Microsoft starts making its own phones, they will unify the line up across all the carriers, just like Apple does. The whole exclusivity is soo stupid that I’am surprised that governments hasn’t stepped in yet to abolish it.

I'm the opposite of you guys. Ditched the iPhone, got an 8X, now on a Moto X, which is an awesome phone, but I would go to a 1020 if Verizon offered it

Android and WP8 rank equal to me. I love widgets and launchers as well as Assist and Touchless Control. WP8 people hub is great though and camera implementation is superb. Both are next generation datacentric OS's - Android with the widgets and WP8 with the LiveTiles. This is where iOS should've gone but they're stuck on the old static icon grid paradigm.

Not feeling iOS 7 at all. Only thing I like about it is the transitions

I got a Nokia 620 to use as a development test phone and it's a decent little phone - solid as a rock and very small.

I don't like WP8 as much as Android and some of the transitions are overdone to the point of being annoying, but it's a decent backup phone and I take it with me when I want to "travel light", or when I'm taking the dogs for a walk in the field and don't want to risk damaging my S4

I am disappointed a company as massive as Microsoft has been so half assed about their own product. They need to actually put some muscle behind WP, the have the resources but I just don't think they care enough to do so.

One more thing. Apps, apps, apps, apps, apps. Windows phone NEEDS more apps. Too many are missing for me to take WP seriously as a full time mobile OS. Android was 1 million+ now, iOS has 950,000, WP needs to catch up but Microsoft hasn't given developers any reason to put time and money into creating apps for WP.

I got my Lumia 1020 this week, liking it so far. I had Windows phone before so this isn't an entirely new experience. I love the camera on it, how detail it can get, but draw back is it's a little slow. Can't really pull it out and snap a quick picture like the iPhone. I plan on hanging on to this phone until the next iPhone comes out. The app selection is barely there, I wish Microsoft can throw money at developers and have them make games for them. I think the phone and OS is great, it just lacks apps. It makes me wonder if Microsoft is even trying to work on their store :confused:

The moment WP gets all major and most commonly used apps (let's say top 100 from iOS) and unifies the tablet and phone stores people will stop complaining about lack of apps. I am very light app user (my iPhone 5S has perhaps 15 3rd party apps, plus several others made by Apple – messing with free iWork etc.).
I do not think that a mobile OS needs 10,000 or more calculator apps, fart apps etc. is. I bet that out of those 950,000 iOS apps, only 1% really matters and is well known to 99% of iOS population. The rest is unknown garbage and irrelevant besides bragging statistics.

I do agree with you a lot of iOS and Android app are trash, but it bothers me that when some one ask me to play a game with them, it's not usually on a windows phone. I know it would take time, that's why I'm going to try and give WP another chance, I had the 920 back in December but returned it after 2 day of use. I have been playing around with the 520 for about 2 months before getting the Lumia 1020. Do you know of a program on Windows 8 that sync like how iTunes work for iDevices?

I use all types of phones from original G1 to nexus 4. All iPhones and blackberries.

Saying all that I've used nokia 900/920 htc 8x and nokia lumia 822 all in the past 18 months.

I don't think windows phone OS is bad. It's actually pretty solid. No lag. Fresh interface. Sure it lacks some essential (for some people) apps like epocrates for medical professionals, hbo go and watch espn.

But I don't think apps is what's holding back windows phones.

I just don't think what Microsoft is offering (even Xbox ) is enough to convince android or iOS users over. I don't think new smartphone users are interested in windows phone either.

In essence Microsoft is like blackberry. Except Microsoft has a butt load of cash in reserve to keep the windows phone project going.

What does windows phone offer that's compelling? Microsoft charges manufacters a licensing fee. $5-10 per phone? Android is essentially free. Can't compete with free. OEMs don't put a great effort to support windows phones. Now Microsoft is buying nokia hardware division. They may make a great phone but they may pis* their OEMs off.

So even with demise of blackberry. I still think windows phone will be a distant 3rd in the race. I think blackberry users will flock to android and iOS rather than windows.

I agree with the WP part. MS is pouring million$ into WP every month to cover (Nokia's) losses to keep the WP boat afloat. Recently sales of cheap Windows Phones (see aforementioned losses) has been attracting first time smartphone buyers causing WP marketshare to increase in parts of Europe and Mexico, while the platform already appears to be practically lifeless in the bulk of markets, including the US.

These recent increases are giving some people a glimmer of hope but apparently customers in this segment typically spend very little on apps (which is why Apple and Google have been kind of ignoring the low end), so it does not really attract developers to the platform (which WP needs desperately) and MS cannot keep up the predatory pricing forever (or could they?). I cannot imagine many first time buyers wanting their second smartphone to be a WP after they realize the cool apps are on other platforms.

I like competition but sorry to say I'm happy to see MS fail because they have proven over and over they will use ruthless tactics to dominate a market, then innovation grinds to a halt and we're stuck with old, buggy, over bloated software that purposefully breaks standards to try to keep innovation from others out of the equation.

I know! It's slick and clever! it does save a lot of time when you are looking up someone; for example, I wanted to text my friend but as I was pulling her profile realized it's her birthday (from facebook), so I wished her a happy birthday too. You can't do that with iOS or Android, unless you started the Facebook app first and looked her up again.

In fact I don't even have facebook or linkedin apps on Windows phone.

I use a Lumia 1020 as my work phone and an iPhone 5s as my non-work phone.

Lumia's got great Office 365 and Exchange support. My company uses Microsoft's enterprise services and having my Lumia is like working with a desktop computer in my pocket.

Camera app's slow, but only if you assigned the Nokia Pro Cam to the shutter button.

My 5s is just for games and music.

Both phones sync with my Mac equally well.

PS the Lumia isn't my first WP. My first WP was a HTC 7 Mozart. I trashed it because Microsoft just wouldn't come up with a build of WP8 for single-core devices.

This isn't my first iPhone either. It started from the days of the 3GS.

Android, it's a joke. Buggy, laggy, resource hog, security vulnerabilities...

WP is really a waste of time. Yea, some folks buy it and like it but most avoid it. The ones that buy it will not stay with the platform and abandon ship as soon as possible. There is nothing that stands out about WP that says, you should buy me instead of the competition.

The main problems with WP that I see are:

1. Main account use is tied to XBOX Live. If you are playing a game on another platform and you used your FB account don't bother trying to invite your buddy to play with you because he won't get it since his is tied to XBOX Live.

2. Lack of Apps. No need to beat this dead horse.

3. Lack of features. It's still playing catch up to the other platforms feature wise. Why spend your hard earned money on a phone that is playing catch up hoping things get better when you can buy a phone that does it all right now?

4. Lack of accessories and many incompatibilities with accessories especially on Nokia hardware.

Microsoft as a whole is slipping further and further into the realm of irrelevance in regards to the consumer space. Dumping $100+ on a WP is like throwing money away.

Dumping $100+ on a WP is like throwing money away.

Yeah? Well, I'm perfectly fine with dumping $100 on my phone.

By the way, MOST games are not Xbox Live compatible, Only a handful are because your game has to meet the requirements to be on that program. So, Facebook is still a go, and it works fine.

The lack of apps is blown out of proportion. Sure, there's not a lot of the big stuff, but I'm fine with that. They're still very nice apps, and some are "up there" when it comes to quality.

I don't care about features. These "features" are what ruined the smartphone for me. When you have 200 apps competing in the background, it's going to run down your battery quickly, which is what happened to my Android devices, I got it perfectly setup, and then bam, 20% battery a hour later.

Accessories?! You're saying that we're wasting money on a phone that will only cost us $100, yet you're complaining that we can't blow another $100 on cases and other junk for it? :rolleyes: All I need is a good pair of headphones and I'm fine with that.

Stop wasting your time pinning and photographing junk that nobody actually looks at but yourself. That is what Instagram and Pinterest have become, and I'm glad to be on a platform where those types of apps aren't the norm. I left both before they became the two junkyards that they are. I'm not posting on a place where companies are allowed to target me and try and sell me stuff.

:rolleyes: I took audio engineering. I know better than to buy headphones as overrated as Beats. But that's for another thread in another area of this forum.

But yeah, I like my phone more and more everyday. Do I miss Android? Not really. Some great phones out there, but I can't justify paying $300 for a phone upfront. So I was always going to be stuck with low-end/mid-range devices. I feel that the money saved is better spent on apps and media. I still run some iOS 2/3 games on my iPad Mini for instance, pretty cool with the better zoom in iOS 7.

For some reason I thought you were into graphic design? Do you have any interest in grabbing a $99 iPhone 5c to compliment your Mini or are you in it for the long haul with WP?

I multitask. :D I started out doing music as my major (and got bored, lol), but am now just finishing a marketable skills in 3D animation. :rolleyes: But I've done art/coding practically all my life.

I'm staying with my 520 until it breaks. When it breaks, I'll decide then which way to go.

I can run iPhone apps on the Mini, so I'm OK. I prefer the 5S colors and would prefer a 64GB model.

I use a Lumia 920 and currently also using the Note 3.
I switch the sim back and forth, there are pros and cons for each. You just have to decide what's more important to you.

Since the Note 3 is new, I've been using it exclusively the past week. I already miss my Lumia. I think the camera is better. The pictures I have taken with the Note just don't look as good as the Lumia to me.

On major thing I miss is the text to speech when I get in my car. With my Lumia it was automatic. As soon as it connects to bluetooth in my car, I never had to look at it when I got a text. It would read me my texts and also send out my replies all hands free.

With the Note I have to switch on drive mode and it's not consistent. I even downloaded an app to turn on drive mode when it connects to bluetooth, but no way to turn off automatically. Just little things like that are bugging me.

Windows 8 does things very elegantly. It does lack in some areas like notifications. I'm considering going back to my Lumia as my main phone.

Hopefully at that point, wp and iphone will let you "bootcamp" into android to run those android-compatible apps.
