The only drawbacks I see so far are the smaller screen and lack of Flash Video. The lacking flash video would keep it from being my primary phone as I use it to watch live sports,UFC events, and stream TV shows and movies from certain websites.

id give it a shot if i didnt find metro ui so appalling. :^o

Great post, just would like to clarify a couple things here.
1) there is a flash video app for WP that you could try, it might help on some of the sites you frequent, it's pretty much a browser that tries to extract the .flv files from the sites and then play them in it's video player.
2) Adobe has discontinued flash for mobile so now even the newer android phones (GS3, one series) don't have it unless a custom rom is installed I guess.

why you guys (mods) are letting this go on in the wp section is beyond me. this thread either needs to be moved to phone comparison, as stated by other members, or closed. time could be better spent getting new membership and traffic up rather than deleting posts for no apparent reason.

1. I tried the flash app, couldn't get it to play anything. Can you play any video from free-tv-video-online.me or firstrowsports.eu?

2. I know it works great on my Galaxy S2, whether they have discontinued it or not, these sites are flash video only, any way to watch them on Windows Phone?

The OP was related to the users HTC Arrive phones which is why it's in this section. Nothing wrong with a discussion on whether his/her Arrive phone is worth keeping or getting an Android phone. Being used to the customization of Android, I prefer it, but I don't find the Metro UI "appauling," it's simple and to the point, my wife seems to Like it very well!

Overall look of the Windows Phone 7 series UI: ugly or beautiful? - xda-developers


unneeded post deletion is why a lot of people dont come here any more. if this were xda, eric would be banned. oh yea, he is banned over there. they recognize trolls.

Your post isn't deleted,it was mine that got edited which wasn't bad in any way I don't think. It's windows phone, not windowz phone. That's plain childish to refer to it as that. It's like saying windoze, etc. Everyone who has bought a WP outside of these forums loves the metro UI.

Eric.... Austin..... Keep the petty arguing out of the forums. It is beyond ridiculous. Stay on topic and be constructive. All this back and forth with you two is old.
