Re: review on engadget

One thing that I really like about Windows Phone is how fast it boots. You can see in the Engadget video that he popped the battery out, then booted up (in critically low battery, mind you) that it booted in like 10-15 seconds. That is representative of how fast and responsive the OS is.

Re: review on engadget

I don't like how they take the slightest things and use it to bash the crap out of the OS. he picked on the search button, the capitalizations (or lack thereof?) and the screen resolution.

Re: review on engadget

Engadget is notoriously biased, however, I didn't feel the author of this article was particularly bashing the OS. He stated a few criticisms that bother him and could bother others. I find that he's generally incorrect about the capitalizations, but I dislike the Mango changes to Marketplace search as well... is it enough to not like it? No, I love the platform, but it is something I would change. I do find the search function consistent, though, which is far more important to me than that one preference.

The screen resolution is also a sore subject, given the iPhone's screen resolution is definitely its only strong point (in my opinion), BUT, I haven't seen too many Android phones sporting a better resolution either.

Re: review on engadget

Incidentally... the author also wrote:

"Aesthetically speaking, we sometimes think of Android as a house that you build yourself: the base materials are relatively neutral, but there's plenty of scope for personalization in the way you fit them together. Meanwhile, iOS is like somebody else's house, built by a super-creative person with strong opinions who really doesn't care if you love it or hate it. So what about Windows Phone? Well, on the Titan's glorious display, it too feels like a house built by somebody else -- but this time it's the handiwork of someone who's primary goal is to make you happy."

I think that's possibly the most remarkable endorsement of Windows Phone possible... it's developed by someone who understands YOU and gives you what YOU want rather than forcing you to fit a cookie-cutter-standard or do-it-yourself.

Re: review on engadget

gTen... I can't speak for the iPhone, but if you show me an Android phone that does a cold boot in that amount of time (and is fully usable), and I'll take it back... but I had an EVO and an Epic, and neither came anywhere near that.

The Evo is a slow to boot, if you wana see a comparison look here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...v=yq99kjHQX-I#!


The epic boots pretty fast too, if you use default boot animation its a tad longer due to the animation being longer then that actual boot time. But even with Sprints animation its definitely less then 30 seconds.


I mean even my windows 7 pc boots in 15 seconds or so :/


Edit: I clocked the video, boot time was 24 seconds (having a plain boot animation too), thats on par with the boot time of an epic 4g.

I could not quickly find an Epic stock animation but here is one:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDydejo7xhs

Time: 26 seconds, and fancy animation. My phone boots at around 20 seconds.

Well when sprint puts their own animated loader it obviously takes a few more seconds but still under 30 seconds.

But if you want to play that game. I'll go as stock as it gets :P

Nexus S boot time 18 seconds:

And I am not including the Galaxy S2 which boots even more faster..
