funny how far one goes to overclock and customize their phone just to try and beat some wm7 phone in some simple tasks , to be fair wm7 phones are speedy and responsive in simple basic stuff and i enjoyed using it. my inner geek however prefer my galaxy nexus
I imagine the store will be flooded with people. Anyone know what Windows Phone they give for your trade in? I noticed they exclude the Nokia Lumia 800.
Haha I was wondering about their "challenge". I regularly get 40+ mbps on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus via speedtest.net. I figured there had to be a catch, and this is exactly what I was imagining. This rigged contest of windows phone vs. competitors sounds typical since their phones lack in almost every facet.
Nokia is dead. The windows phones they make suck and suck hard and suck everyday. Check out the ananatech review for more specifics about how they suck. I wouldn't touch them with a 10-foot clown pole.
WM6.5 was utter shit, but so was Froyo (and Gingerbread IMO). Simply put, WP7 is in no way related to 6.5 except by numbering sequence and the windows name. These phones are fast and efficient. I was very critical of WP7 when it was released, but I quickly learned most of my preconceived notions about "Another Crappy Windows Phone" were very wrong.
You have gottttt to be kidding. Windows mobile was the worst trash i've ever used of any os and that includes windows 3.1 windows 95/win98 etc. I went from an htc touch diamond to an htc hero with android 1.6 (donut I think?) on it and it was night and day. No comparison in the slightest. So how you could say gingerbread and froyo were/are terrible just makes me question your entire intelligence. Honestly!

The "challenge" is bs. I went to the Scottsdale store. They basically are comparing their preinstalled windows software using bias tests that are specifically set up to give their phones the advantage. When I challenged the associate some simple tasks like compare how fast a text is sent and received, RANDOM search tests, taking a picture traditionally and uploading it to social networks and then begging them to compare bench tests, or a simple speed test from speedtest.net, they refused. So I did a speed test against a customer's windows phone through speedtest.net. My lg spectrum had a download speed of 47.6 mbps. Upload of 23mbps. His? 14mbps down. 9 mbps up. The associate claimed that didn't prove anything and nobody would use that in "real world."
Yeah. Who cares how fast you can surf the Web, download a song, video or stream something on your smart phone. Who does that kind of stuff?
