This is a Windows Phone website. I make no excuses or apologies for that. It’s my chosen platform and the one which, I believe, makes the most sense for the most people, but I do understand that there are users out there who enjoy the ability and flexibility of chosing a platform which suits their needs.
I originally ran across the video below on WMPoweruser and thought that the host of the video did a pretty fair job of describing each platform and his own preferences without getting into an incendiary war about which is best. So, if you are having difficulty figuring out which smartphone platform is right for you, then check out this guys video and it may help.
Just a few things, however, I would like to clear up before hitting play. In the video, he mentions how great the iPhone is for music and podcasts. Personally, I believe Windows Phone’s music player is hands-down the best option out there. Podcast’s on Windows Phone still lack a native download capability on the phone, but will be coming soon in the Mango update later this fall. Also, the idea of customization comes up and while it’s true that Android lends itself to be fully customizable, Windows Phone’s home screen is a great way to personalize your phone to your needs with the help of tiles and live tiles.
As for me, I will continue to push Windows Phone as the superior platform as I’ve tried each of the others and feel Windows phone is the best combination of hardware and software. Please feel free to sound off in the comments below about your choice of smartphone and why it’s right for you.
