125 REASONS NOT TO BUY A WINDOWS PHONE 7.5

Now Upgraded to 125 Reasons

WP7.5 (Mango) is already in its second generation but it still has many restrictions, limitations and serious usability issues. This is a list of its shortcomings as compared with other smartphone OS in the market. We are not comparing special features or abilities but those which have become the norm for all smartphones and even dumb phones. An Android, Symbian or MeeGo phone would have very few of these shortcomings. An iphone share some restrictions with WP7.5 but is still miles ahead. Even the Nokia N9 running the first generation MeeGo OS is far better with none of the disastrous issues which impact on the sheer usability of the phone.

OS LIMITATIONS
1. No true multitasking - all apps are frozen in the background except for some built-in apps like Zune player.
2. No Divx/Xvid video codec support. Zune will convert with loss of quality.
3. No mass storage mode.
4. No micro-SD card support.
5. No filemanager. Directory system is totally opaque.
6. Need Zune to transfer files. Zune will only transfer photos, videos & music. All other files need to email/upload to yourself.
7. Your contact details are automatically uploaded to cloud service whether you like it or not.
8. Limited to 800x480 resolution.
9. Voice search is hardwired to Bing.
10. Need to edit an MP3 file with strict constraints to be used as a ringtone.

The above is my original work but it can be freely copied.

If you are not familiar with WP7.5 you may be forgiven for thinking that this is all B.S. and designed to malign Microsoft and make Elop look stupid. Surely such a big corporation like Microsoft can't make something so bad especially in its 2nd generation? But I stand by its accuracy and I challenge anybody to point out what is false or incorrect.

One must ask, why did Elop bet Nokia on a half baked OS while ignoring Nokis's own home grown gem that is MeeGo? Is he mad or is he blind? I think he's neither but he is just not working for Nokia.

I just can't believe that this list is really true... If yes, it means that Nokia (along with MS virus inside) want to make (or rather not make, considering last months) money by just selling dumb phones.

Perfect plan...

Well, some of the bugs and issues you listed are actually in their 20th generation, because they were present for the first time already in Pocket PC Phone Edition on the XDA in 2002...

In Oct 2002 I was invited by Microsoft to visit Redmond and become part of Mobius group. They gave us some nice gadgets, including the freshly released XDA. At that time I was using the Symbian / Series 80 based 9210i Communicator.

OMG, what an experience it was to (try to) normally use that XDA thing! Just like now on Mango 7.5, you had to PRAY that no SMS arrives while you're talking on the phone (or no alarm is set for that time), or else it was blowing your head off with the loudest ringtone it could produce - right to your ear. When the display was switching itself off, it was automatically turning off all data connections (GPRS), so if you wanted to download anything you had to tap that damn thing every 10-15 seconds just to keep it alive. Just like now, there was just one volume adjustment for everything: ringtones, music, earpiece, loudspeaker and the rest. The device did not have any kind of proximity sensor disabling the screen when the phone is put to one's face, so while talking I was pressing buttons, launching applications, deleting files, etc. with my cheek. When the phone was turned off, alarms didn't work. And so on... most of your list also applies to the XDA, except for things that didn't exist at that time like WiFi.

So it seems that with Mango 7.5 they went back to 2002, and additionally removed multitasking and locked down the OS, so it's actually EVEN WORSE.

Well, if you think WP7.5 is bad the version of WP7 before Mango was worse. For one, it did not support a proximity sensor to turn off the screen when the phone is held to your face. Hence users had to be careful not to terminate the call with their cheek touching the disconnect button. MS committed the most fundamental error of touchscreen phones.

How can a company which had Win Mobile experience turn out such a lousy product in WP7? It seemed that MS wanted to start from scratch so they used a totally new team instead of the Win Mobile team in order to avoid Win Mobile affecting WP7. The result is that fundamental errors were made which persists to WP7.5.

Nokia as a specialist phone company is miles ahead of Microsoft in phone OS. MeeGo Harmattan is a gem which works admirably well even in its first incarnation. Elop threw away pearls to in exchange for worthless stones.

That's exactly how it was on the XDA PocketPC in 2002 Wink So they basically do not learn anything from their past issues. Just like Nokia. So maybe it's a perfect partnership...

Or maybe they used THE SAME TEAM which now goes through exactly the same steps as before Wink Or maybe they have some sort of manual, like "Building a smartphone for Newbies", and they cannot do anything without it, so they repeat the same steps as in early 2000s Razz

Nokia probably no longer has any of those specialists who created Harmattan; I'm afraid that they all have already been fired.

I can absolutely agree with almost all of 101 reasons, and I have maybe few others to add Razz
MeeGo, so doomed OS by Nokia, is far better, has more native components, supports more standards from its start, from PR1.0, not counting after update to PR1.2 and upcoming PR1.3
How could Microsoft even release that piece od ****, which is not usable for daily tasks even after two updates - NoDo and Mango? I think Apollo will blow same as few space shuttles of NASA Rolling Eyes

This is absolutely unbelievable.
And hard to believe that back in 2007 we were discussing here at my-symbian that E90 doesn't support fax or shows the landline call icon for mobile numbers...

LOL this list is a joke. I was going to go through and pick out all your flaws, but I don't have time for that, and a quick glance through is all I need to tear you apart.

No Micro SD card support: WRONG. Depends on what phone you get. My Samsung Focus has SD card support.

Only supports 16 GB of storage: WRONG. Again, depends on what phone you get.

No WiFi hotspot: WRONG. Most all do, including my gf's 900 and my Titan.

No video call: WRONG. Tango, Skype, etc.

No equalizer: WRONG. My Titan has an equalizer.

Cannot delete individual calls in call history: WRONG

Does not group call history by contact: WRONG

No haptic keyboard feedback: WRONG.

Ok, I would continue this, but I have to leave. I'll be back later to tear apart your pathetic list.

Nice try kid, but you are truly a moron.

hah... so i can react on you...

- SD support - Samsung have done that SD support above the system itself. WP5 does not support it at all.

- only 16GB memory - yes, you can have 8GB models too Laughing or dismantle your phone, exchange hidden memory card /used for cheaper making of different memory models instead of chip Rolling Eyes /, woid your waranty and format whole phone to expand memory. geat!

- Wi-Fi hotspot - again, WP7 itself does not support it. it is done above the system by manufacturers. it means they have better OS developers than MS? Very Happy I guess yes!

- video call - someone woul like to call over 3G network - again, not supported. tango, skype and so on were released only couple weeks ago, again, working like [put your favorite swearword here] wit that fake multitasking Very Happy

- equalizer - again, not supported by WP7, done by HTC above the system.

- individual call history delete - yes, after Mango update it is FINALLY possible Smile waaaaaaaaau I Love You

- group call history by contact - true. it is really like that. wanna see screenshot of my Lumia 800? Smile same for Omia W

- haptic feedback - none on SW keyboard (not initially supported by WP7, only if manufacturer done that), only if on capacitive buttons, not on screen keyboard.

I would like to see your new feedback on this Smile to tear you up again Smile bye!

First of all, I guess you should have started from saying "Hello" as a newcomer, instead of insulting people right from the first sentence...

Secondly, all the things you listed have been ADDED by HTC and/or Samsung ON TOP of Windows Phone OS. They are NOT NATIVE PARTS of the OS, they are 3rd party additions. In such sense, Sam's list of (read carefully) *Windows Phone OS* drawbacks remains fully valid. He did not say that 3rd party cannot add the missing features, he said they're missing from the standard OS, and he is 100% right. If you check any of the Lumias you'll notice that most of those features aren't there, because Nokia didn't bother to create and add them themselves like Samsung or HTC did.

Anyway, it really doesn't take offending people if you have a different opinion. On this 14 years old site we're used to DISCUSS things rather than attack and insult each other. Please kindly follow our standards.

If you remember the discussions last year about how wonderful WP 7 was when the strategy was announced, you should be used to the kind of arguments the fans are using.

I have learned from them that WP 7 is the best platform since it is simple, an argument that then is "backed up" with wrong descriptions about other platforms, for example that an Android device crashes when you take a phone call etc.

WP 7 and iOS fans *has* to offend people since their mission is to defend the platform and criticism is not allowed since everything with those two systems has clever reasons:

1. Joe 6 Pack is not using Feature X so it is unnecessary.
2. Other platforms are hard to use.
3. Other platforms lags.
4. Windows Phone 7/iOS is very simple to use and therefore better.
5. Joe 6 Pack wants something simple.
6. You are wrong.

With argument like those paired with offenses, the platforms are claimed to be the best thing since sliced bread.

I have not to this day heard any good argument for either iOS or WP 7 (in a different forum, there has been a 148 page debate and now a new 13 page long - without any good argument yet but different versions of the six ones I listed).

My conclusion is simply that there is no good arguments for WP 7. Therefore the hysterical reaction from the fans that tries to defend it at all costs.

It is pretty telling when the WP 7 fans has to register in a completely different forum, just to defend the platform. When you do that, you are really in deep love with the system.

Compare it to what happened last year when a particular user woke up and started to praise WP 7 without any good arguments besides "Symbian is dead".

Then my shovel is even better, as it's even simpler... But I don't want my smartphone to be simple, I want it to be functional. And I enjoy it being complex, because this way it offers me a lot possibilities, lots of new things to discover and learn, etc. When I use a complex product, I further develop my abilities and knowledge. Simple things make me bored and I get rid of them quickly and replace them with something more exciting.

And that's why for the last 14 years I've been using GEOS, Symbian, Maemo and MeeGo, and not "simple things" like iOS or WP7 which you get familar with in 15 minutes and then you don't know what to do. I'm afraid that I would bore myself to death in just one day with a WP7 phone.

Jarhead1407, thank you for drawing my attention to the update which allows individual calls in call history to be deleted. As this is no longer applicable I've replaced No. 91 with another one to maintain the 101 reasons.

For the rest of your comments they are manufacturer specific as others have pointed out and apply only to their phone models so they do not remove the shortcomings of the OS.
