    Advantages and disadvantages of Windows Phone

    People are much talking about Android and iOS but not about Windows Phone. I am an admirer of Nokia and now I want to buy a phone from Lumia series. But I don't have any experience with Windows phone and here I would like to know about advantages and disadvantages of Windows phone.

    I could list all of the advantages of the Windows phones compared to the competition (Android, Apple)...or I could post this link I found which I believe may help you.

    This is a problem for Microsoft, flexibility to make changes to Nokia in partial exchange for it adopting the platform. This saved Microsoft’s mobile life, but in the process cost it control: If Nokia can essentially skin Windows Phone to its own contentment, Microsoft is in a material way not in charge of the Windows Phone user experience and design.

    Thanks for the list. I have to ask, is that more of a limitation due to Microsoft or Nokia and whatever hardware company that is providing the phones. I can't imagine that Microsoft doesn't want their phone to become as much a part of a user's experience in their ecosystem as Apple has for their customers, so there have to be plans for all of this to be fixed, right?

    I for one am yet to use any Windows Phone. I am planning to get one though. I hope it turns out to be a good one.

    What I'm disappointed about the Windows Phone is that you can not use a custom tone for messages, the system also seems to be at the bottom of the pile when it comes to app developers rolling out apps, Windows Phone has NO betting apps

    Well, there may end up being a lot of improvements to the Windows Phone experience and it may draw a lot closer to what Apple is doing. Microsoft is going to take over Nokia and manufacture their own phones.

    This is a really good move if they don't let the naysayers get to them like they did with the Xbox One.

    Wow, those are some pretty big issues listed under the Disadvantages. I had no idea you couldn't multitask on Windows Phones until recently. That's also kind of crazy there is no file system or USB mass storage. I would return the phone immediately if I discovered this after purchasing it.

    I'm not much of a fan of the interface though since I feel like it is a lot of wasted space on the screen - requiring a lot of extra scrolling.

    Wow, I never knew that windows phone is so limited in the areas people mentioned above. But, I don't really think Lumia would be limited in some of the aforementioned but if it's, I really don't see myself paying for that kind of phone.

    I don't think it matters what modal phone you purchase, if it has a Windows Phone operating system surely they will all have the same limitations?

    For the most part, yes. But, things like Bluetooth and USB transfer would be within the hardware, I believe. An app can fix the equalizer part. But, the software is the software.
