GeneraliPhone or Windows Phone PinmemberMehGerbil12-Jun-14 7:31 
I'm thinking about getting a mobile phone.
I'm not sure what type of phone to buy.
I know next to nothing about these phones.
 
I've impressions and I'll share them here.
Don't get upset if you're a cultist of one sort or another - I've already admitted that I don't know.
 
Windows Phone
My impression is that these guys have a bit of improvement to make and that the experience isn't as polished as the iPhone. That said, I like the tiles - the UI, oddly enough, seems cleaner to me and I find that appealing. I also like the idea that I'll learn a bit about the Windows 8 way of doing things which might come in handy in the future.
 
iPhone
The more mature, polished experience - and yet, the UI seems clunky to me. There might be TOO much going on here and I'm not really excited about buying into the whole Apple ecosystem. Probably the better over all phone but I don't need a new religion either.
 
I dunno... any thoughts?
