ROFL! It's just like another iPhone:
• No system-wide file manager
• No Bluetooth file transfers
• No USB mass storage mode
• Too dependent on Zune software for file management and syncing
It'll probably so much awesome if this could be actually jailbroken :)
[deleted post]I bet you moan just about everything all the time, but thanks for your input anyway.
As far as I am concerned the battle for the best smart phone operating system is on. On like Donkey Kong!!
I like the OS.. yes it's missing some features but hey i'm not getting a new phone till early next year. Hopefully the updates will come. if not i can always go for symbian, android, bada or iphone...arent we spoiled with options these days :P
GSMarena are too optimistic about wp7. They are right in saying that iphone and android had a hard start. There wasn't any high end androids a year and a half ago but now it's the best os. So the success of this phone or any wp7 phone depends on the firmwares and updates, are they gonna allow bluetooth transfers, copy and paste, hd playback, internal mass storage and the market growth. But for now I wouldn't think about getting a WP7 phone.
Rather disappointing. Windows7 Phone behaves like Apple iPhone like no bluetooth transfer? WTF!
great videos gsmarena, we can see how smooth and fast wp7 is. It works so effortlessly, nothing compared to boring and awkward N8 which just dont give you to feeling to try it, these wp7 devices i definately want to try even they have their flaws.
It seems industry experts have already passed their judgements on how sucessfull windows mobile 7 will be:
Samsung seems to be hesitant about wp7 still, they haven't put the same class of audio hardware thar they put in the gaaxy or wave series.
nothing new here really,an existing phone body with a new os on it. The windows os is lacking innovation and has some severe limitations. The choice of ugly 80,s old fashion blue square homescreen blocks is a strange decision,the ui isn't going to win over much fans except for the uber pc geeks but then that was the fan base of the origional win mobile. The origional win mob launched with all the same racket and noise,it too having awful ui and found its inevitable demise in the end,but as they say,all this has happened before and will happen again
piece of crap..These days with so many limitations,1ly blind people would prefer to use WP7..Still Android is the best in my opinion..btw nice phon by samsung....the UI is the failure, GSMARENA when we will have the review of Nokia n8?or u just forgot about that?
KreanInW, 11 Oct 2010This WP7 has so many limitations, it's just like a beta version after alpha version one from a... moreI totaly agree with you. No custom ringtones, no BT file ransfer, no divx/xvid and ugly GUI makes me laugh.
All the people saying that the OS is crappy when they themselves have not used the phone.
I think WP7 is sleek, it probably has its own disadvantages (no USB support? no copy and paste? I went wtf when I first saw it), but hey, the iOS didn't have copy and paste until 3.0+!
I think Microsoft is fighting hard in this battle, but we'll wait for more reviews before we can even call WP7 a loser or anything.
Snapdragon? You mean hummingbird?
What's with the limitations with the W7!? The reason why Android is successful is because they closed the limitations of the iOS & now W7 just copied iOS. And, the FM won't play in the headset? Just in the loudspeaker!?
And yeah GSMarena where's your review of the N8? Why it's taking so looooong?
crappy OS on a good phone
[deleted post]on the contrary my friend,gsmarena is serving nokia well,how is that??!!
as we all know the best selling point of the n8 is its camera and gsmarena in its first look only concentrated on the camera and built quality of the phone,and forget to mention any disadvantages of the phone ,even they "forget" to mention that there is no video light support,but as we all also know the main concerns about n8 is symbian performance which was reviewed in other websites and was not promising.
This WP7 has so many limitations, it's just like a beta version after alpha version one from a lot of screenshots long times ago.
I can confirmed that this WM7 isn't ready to be use in a phone.(at least in a real life.) No custom ringtones is enough to make almost everyone say NO!
i wont buy phone with this kind of ugly interface and even worse all the restrictions.
apart from OS. samsung has done a good job with hardware but OS is big fail
