Anonymous, 26 Nov 20151. Why bring up PC software to a phone OS comparison? I won't even try to comment on that.
2.... more1. why not? whats the use off those apps which has different features in pc vs mobile. one note is an example. used google keep? whats available in pc is available in mobile.
i dont really get how you use one-note in mobile at work.
2. at time of wp users "era" there wasn't hotspot, but android already did have! and how is that one os has better connectivity than others?
3. ms ignored google's ad inside their youtube app, so whats your point? was that google's fault? well there are apps flooded with ads in the store.
4. rock solid? wait few months for news, if it survives.
5 app crash? such a childish comment. which are those basic apps tell me. i dont have any app crashes, maybe it had problems prior to android 5.
6 so you dont know "wp users have notification problems". google or bing it you will know. i dont get notifications from whastapp, telegram etc(re-installed many times). it only works if i do soft resets.
enjoy your windows phone, live in old-age. windows 10 mobile will be available may be 2016!

This is pretty much Nokia Asha 230 revamped into old-school keypad style dumb phone. Same display size too. Nice. Whatsapp should be available as well.

I've heard that Microsoft could use Nokia name only for awhile.
And now Nokia can make devises branded with Nokia name again.

2. There was no hotspot in the past. Now we have that, and it provides better connectivity than Android does.
3. You don't need 3rd party email apps on Windows phones. The default email app is awesome and works with all email providers without a hiccup, as well as with private servers. Gmail might raise up a few issues, but that's Google's fault, as Google's product development strategy aims to deny Microsoft's usage of their products. (see Windows Phone's official Youtube app which was ten times better than Google's own Android app. Google just denied access to its Youtube services when trying to use the Windows Youtube app, as they were afraid more people will turn to Windows phones because of this)
4. Windows is still rock-solid secure when compared to Android.
5. Apps crash in Android due to its inefficient memory management system. Even basic Android apps crash.
6. Don't know what notification problems you are talking about. If I had to restart my phone more than 1 time a month, I would just throw it away, as I cannot afford to lose precious time and work due to OS instability.

1. ms office in windows phone is nothing compared to pc. one note makes me laugh at what it provides in the mobile vs in pc. see i have used one note in my lumia. only 5% of the fetures are provided.
2. on the go create wireless hotspots? there was no hotspot at all before android! even though wp 8.1 has now, it heavlily lacks features.
3. server sync works good if you are using "ms accounts". try using gmail. oh they even dont have gmail app except for 3rd party apps.
4.i dont understand "how windows is clear winner", if hackers are provided with proper tools they can do hack anything regardless of what your device run. didn't you read article a week ago about "malicous apps"?
5.andoird is for "masses of mediocre". thats just bs! tell me one thing how does app crashes is os fault?
6.its a lie. every wp user needs to do "soft resets" a week! i do that because of notification problems.

Anonymous, 25 Nov 2015I just hope that their future smartphones will actually be smart and will not run on Android.
... moreyeah why no since 5 year i am using nokia n8 "symbian"
and symbian is also a powerful os just need more developers :)
i am very sure that this one will become the great successor in the budget phone range.
thank you nokia for your come back.we are expecting more from you.

Playing Candy Crush or using social media apps doesn't make you a power user. Nor does changing your launcher/icons in Android. That is just silly stuff that kids enjoy.
I use my Windows phone to monitor and manage company servers, provide remote support if needed, follow webinars, work with M$ Office, OneNote, etc. on the go, create wireless hotspots in a matter of 5 seconds (where everyone can connect - unlike Android, where hotspots are buggy and they don't allow some users to connect to them) and of course, have a flawless email experience. (unlike Android, where server sync is messy and buggy)
Also, I don't want to start talking about security. Windows is the clear winner here. No viruses, no data theft from "malicious" apps. Everything is sandboxed.
So yeah, as I said before, Android is an OS aimed at the masses of mediocre phone users who just need a phone that they can use to check Facebook (or any social media stuff) and play games. And they are not bothered by app crashes, bugs, and/or the need for restarts and factory resets.
I didn't restart my phone in over 3 months. Did not do a single factory reset since I bought my phone (one and a half years ago). Everything works like in day one.

It's just a free OS that is good enough for the masses of average phone users.

bot!, 26 Nov 2015Dearest omid46, 1. This is not a Microsoft phone, this is a Nokia phone 2. This phone has no wifinop it is from Microsoft. it is a selfie phone for poor people no need for WiFi. I don't think farmers and such users who use phones like this has access to WiFi in their villages
