Ernest, 12 Feb 2014I've watched the video and honestly I didn't see anything interesting. Perhaps there are indee... moreyes it is simple, in fact, you will get use to it and like it like others do, well , not all, of 100% people who buy phone, about 10 - 15% didnt adopt it, well atleast you can try, use it several months, when the 8.1 arrive.
Be Intelligent, 12 Feb 2014...and more malware, more security issues. yay!Androi is also #1 in lag, force closes, and freezes. It's a fragmented unstable OS.
Anonymous, 12 Feb 2014Wp lags behind android functionality. That's the truth.and Android leads in malware and security issues. That's the truth as well.

Anonymous, 12 Feb 2014In your personal opinion. ;)http://blog.gsmarena.com/windows-phone-8-1-sdk-promises-a-ton-of-updates/
At this moment...blog article of gsmarena points to very promising...impressive improvements ....read it ;)
I've watched the video and honestly I didn't see anything interesting. Perhaps there are indeed improvements but I didn't see it as significant.
The more I look at it, the more I feel confused with Windows Phone layout design, menu, settings etc are all over the place.
Maybe I should reconsider buying a WP. It didn't look as simple as it used to be.
Musharna, 12 Feb 2014I beg to disagree. Maybe you use your phone for games only. Not only that, android has more apps, more games more functionality..
darknite, 12 Feb 2014Hmmm...to catch up... agreed, but doing it better would be correct statement here.In your personal opinion. ;)
Dan, 12 Feb 2014no option to change the background with an wallpaper ? whats the point with all those tiles?
you wouldnt be able to see your picture
in the pictures hub a random picture is chosen as your background but thats it. oh and a customizable lock-screen
android and apple can get away with it because they have those small icons
wp has tiles with almost no space between them and they are not transparent/translucent. plus the start screen has infinite scrolling.
when you put all that together a custom background on wp would have to be static instead of dynamic... i dont think that is what people want
i have been trying to imagine what a live wall paper on my wp start screen would look like but i just think of it as off putting.
but then again i am a biochemist not a graphic artist
